"I would hope that in making a

New Delhi
NEW DELHI (1) - India yes-
terday was reported considering
acceptance of the Colombo pro-
posals for a truce with Red China.
While official sources indicated
a shift in India's thinking, a ship-
load of American arms was being
unloaded at Bombay. At the same
time, the chairman of the United
States Senate Armed Services
Committee announced in Wash-
ington his opposition to furnish-
ing India any modern American
Official Indian sources said the
truce proposals drafted by six non-
aligned African-Asian nations at
Colombo apparently were unac-
ceptable to China.
Afro-Asian World
The officials reasoned that
China, had it found the terms fa-
vorable, would have made an an-
nouncement last week in a fan-
fare of publicity for the benefit
of the African-Asian world.
However, a communique broad-
cast from Peking yesterday said
Chinese Premier Chou En-Lai and
Colombo representatives who con-
ferred in Peking last week had
agreed on terms they believe
would help settle the India-China
border dispute.
Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike,
prime minister of Ceylon, who led
the delegation to Peking, is due
here Thursday for similar talks
with Indian officials.
The Peking communique said
details of the proposals would be
kept secret until Mrs. Bandar-
anaike talked with Indian Prime
Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
Initially, India had been in-
clined to reject the help of the
six nonaligned nations in settling
its dispute with China.
The arrival of a shipload of
American arms Friday was con-
firmed belatedly by the govern-
ment. Censorship had held up the
Misunderstanding of Orders
A government information of-
ficer, M. L. Bhardwaj, blamed a
misunderstanding of orders by a
local official in Bombay for the
weekend blackout on this first
seaborne shipment of United
States arms to help India gird
against any new Chinese attack.
In Washington, Sen. Richard B.
Russell (D-Ga.) chairman of the
Senate Armed Services Commit-
tee, said in an interview:
"The Indians put on a disgrace-
ful exhibition in permitting them-
selves to be driven out of what
should have been impregnable po-
sitions in the border mountains.
They seem incapable of fighting
and if we supply them with wea-
pons they will just fall into the
hands of the Communists."

Study Finds Exams Lacki

NEW YORK-College entrance
examination scores are not always
an accurate measure of a student's
ability to do good work in college,
according to a report published
recently by Columbia University.
A study of 72 students admitted
to the college in 1961 with below-
average scores on verbal aptitude
tests found that 69 had passed the
two required freshman courses
most demanding in the ability to
understand and express ideas in
words, Henry S. Coleman, director
of college admissions, said. In ad-
dition, 22 per cent of these stu-
dents ranked in the top half of
their class in all subjects.
"We may infer from these early
statistics that although low verbal
scores are a fairly reliable predic-
tor of academic success in the
freshman year they do not ac-
curately measure the well-motivat-
ed student's ability to survive, and
in some cases to prosper, in a rig-
orous academic program," Cole-
man said.
An examination of 25 students

admitted in 1961 who were dis-
missed, suspended or allowed to
withdraw for academic reasons in-
dicated that slightly weak prepara-
tion was less often the cause than
lack of motivation and various
psychological problems, he added.
These observations were con-
tained in a report from Coleman
to about 5,000 secondary school
headmasters, principals and coun-
selors throughout the nation.
Coleman said that the results
of the College Board examinations
were rarely the determining factor
in deciding whether a candidate
would be admitted to Columbia.
Coleman stressed the usefulness of
national testing programs for col-
lege entrance, but he deplored "any
undue emphasis upon, or misuse of,
the results."
Ve'rbal Skills
Coleman explained that Colum-
bia had admitted the 72 students,
whose mastery of verbal skills had
apparently been hampered by
background, environment, poor
schooling or foreign education, in
