'or Paceful.
Settlement To Hel p'
Create Atmosphere
For Kashmir Pact



Another step has been taken to
narrow the wide political gulf be-
tween India and Pakistan, war-
ring daughters of the British Raj.
The agreement between the two
s t a t e s, pronounced Monday,
settling the status of 1,500 miles
of common border, is seen as a
step in the right direction for
settlement of all the neighbors'
common disputes.
Prof. Richard L. Park of the
political science department la-
beled the move a "major step in
indicating the willingness of India
" and Pakistan to resolve disputes
that have been rather major in
the past."
May Settle Kashmir ,
He said settlement of this and
other similar disputes which have
been plaguing Indo-Pakistani re-
latins ever since the 194 parti-
ion, may create a climate in
which the two can settle the prob-
lem of Kashmir, which hs gone
as far as the United Nations.
Prof. Park added he was not
* optimistic for the near future,
since the Kashmir problem has
poitical and power implications
rit present in the mIore .technical
natters of small border disputes
/ and the like.
Among similar problems con-
-nected to such. border disputes, he
listed exchange of evacuee prop-
erty, trade arrangements, pass-
port disputes and the controversy
over allocation of Indus River
Explains Assumpton
He explained the assumption of
the Indian and Pakistani govern-
ments seems to be to work out all
difficult, but relatively minor
problems before attempting the
more difficult.Kashmir settle-
. ment.,
.The actual settlement covers the
.stretch of border between India
and West Pakistan. The Kashmir
border, of course, and a section
of "border between the Indian.
state of Bombay and the Pak-
stani state of Sind are still in
Talks on the latter are sched-
uled for later since the area is a
special case because of extensive
Frontier Settled
Added to an Oct. 1 settlement
of the border between India and
East Pakistan, the new agreement
means that fully 4,000 miles of
frontier is considered to be defi-
nitely settled.
Both sides gave up claims to
territory to accommodate settle-
ment; the boundary is set up on
the existing basis.
Armed personnel may not come
closer than 150 yards from the
new line.
" , Explains Problems
Prof. Park explained some of
the problems that still remain to'
be settled: ,
1) Because of rapid population
shifts just after the partition,
evacuees left behind great
amounts of property. The question
of exchange must be worked out.
(Prof. Park commented this may
make news in the near future.)
2) Because of mutual use of
Indus River water, the states have
. been wrangling over its distribu-
tion. Like the property rights, this
results directly from partition.
Prof. Park said he expected settle-
ment of water rights would prob-
ably be announced this spring,
with the World Bank playing a
big role.
To Consider Passports
3) Questions of trade arrange-
ments and passports for travelers
are still to be resolved.
The communique announcing
the agreement concluded the ne-
gotiations represent "yet another
step by the two governments for
bringing about better and amic-
able neighborly relations."
It asked the press of both na-

tions to exercise restraint and
"n"t publish exaggerated reports
or material likely to inflame feel-

Dies for Heart Attack

Speaker Sam Rayburn (D-Tex:),
bowed out yesterday from his tra-
ditional role as chairman of the
Democratic National Convention.
The Speaker's action, in the
form of a "do not choose" an-
nouncement, appeared to have
put in high gear a drive to land
the party's presidential nomina-
tion for Senate Democratic Leader
Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas.
Rayburn told his news confer-
ence he has "a great desire to see
one convention from the floor."
He said he will not adcept the post
of convention chairman he filled
in 1948, 1952 and 1956.
Wants To See Other Side
"When you are tied 'to that
chairmanship up there," Rayburn
said, "you see the convention from
the front. I'd like to see it from
both sides."
Rayburn added significantly
that as a floor delegate he would
have a better chance "to work for.'
the candidate of my choice." He
has announced his support of
Johnson as a Texas favorite son
candidate who, he said, would
have-wide appeal in other areas.
Johnson has said he is not 'a
candidate for the presidential
nomination but would take a look
at the situation if the convention
at Los Angeles next July seemed
to want him.
Confirms Indications
Rayburn's action was interpret-
ed, however, as confirming the
growing indications that Johnson
considers himself a serious con-
tender and not just a holding can-
didate who might be influential in
the naming of another as a nom-
With Texas' 61 convention votes
as a nucleus, Johnson's friends are
busy trying to build a formidable
bloc of support in southern and
western states.

'House Bill
WASHINGTON ( ) - House
sources said yesterday the petition
to take civil rights legislation
away from the Rules Conimittee
appears virtually stalled.
,Fouradditional signatures were
reported yesterday, bringing the
total to 155 as against the 219
needed to bring the legislation to
the floor without committee ac-
tion. Two hundred and nineteen is
a bare House majority. k(
Rep. Charles A. Halleck (R-
Ind.), the House Republican Lead-
er described as "political bologna
just not true" the continuing
charges from civil, rights ~emo-
crats that Republicans are helping
keep the legislation in committee
as a political payoff to southern
Raise Payoff Charges
The payoff charges were raised
again yesterday by Reps. Emanuel
Celler (D-N.Y.) and James Roose-
velt (D-Calif.). They said Repub-
lican inaction was the price asked
by sQuthern Democrats for their
support of Presidential vetoes and
last year's labor control bill.
Celler and R o o s e v e l t com-
plained that few Republicans had
signed the petition to discharge
the rules committee from consid-
eration of civil rights legislation.
Unofficial reports were that fewer
than 10 Republicans had signed.
Halleck retorted that payoff or
conspiracy charges are absurd in
light of the size of the Democratic
majority in the House. There are
now 280 Democrats, 152 Republi-
cans and five vacant seats in the
Halleck Questions
"With the big majority they
have, can't they run Congress?"
Halleck asked reporters.
R o s e elt said there aren't
enough ' Democrats from outside
the South and "we just must have
some Republican votes."
Halleck said he had told fellow
Republicans that "if a n y o n e
wanted to sign the petition, to go
ahead and sign."
Refuses To Sign
He said he wouldn't sign it him-
self, however, in keeping with a
practice of 25 years not to bypass
regular House procedure. He re-
called that House Speaker Sam
Rayburn (D-Tex.), while calling
attention to the petition method,
mentioned that he had never
signed such a petition either.
Reporters asked Halleck wheth-
er he had urged the four Republi-
can members of the Rules Com-
mittee to vote against holding the
civil rights legislation off the floor
any longer.
Halleck replied the four Repub-
licans are on the committee "in
their individual capacity."

HAVANA (A') - Cuba's National
Agrarian Reform Institute still
lacks the land courts it promised
eight months ago to settle dis-
putes over the land seizure pro-
This came out yesterday in
Cuba's rejection of a United States
government note accusing Presi-
dent Fidel Castro's government of
violating Cuban as well as inter-
national law in the seizure of Cu-
ban properties of United States
A spokesman for the Institute,
known here now from its Cuban
initials as INRA, said creation. of

The reform law itself, as pro-

courts "are hereby created for
cognizance and. decision of judi-
cial proceedings that may arise
from application of this law and
others in connection with agricul-
tural contracts and rural proper-
ty in general."
It added that the Institute shall

draft the organic law for the
courts within three months. This
presumably meant by Aug. 17. The
organic law is still awaited.
The Institute spokesman said,
however, any disputes may be tak-
en to either the Institute's legal
department or civilian tribunals,
including the Supreme Court.
Criticizes INRA.
"It's the same old run around
at INRA," said a land owner. "It's
wait, wait, wait all the time. It's
useless to try civilian courts with-
out the organic law since they
have nothing to go by, so we are
stuck with vague promises."
Cuban as well as United States

MELBOURNE, Australia (') --
British novelist Nevil Shute died
of a stroke yesterday in Mel-
bourne, the city he pictured in
"On the Beach" as a scene in
mankind's final destruction from
cobalt radiation of World War III.
Shute, 60 years old, had suffered
a series of heart attacks. These
caused him to give up his old
sports of yachting, motor racing
and flying even while he went on
quietly writing best sellers and
looking after the livestock on his
farm overlooking the sea.
His, death came less than a
month after the simultaneous
world premiere in more than a
dozen cities-including New York,
London, Molscow and Melbourne-
of the film version of "On the
Beach," his most successful work.
Shute did not like the movie,
produced by Stanley Kramer, be-
cause he considered Kramer had
misused the right to make altera-
tions in the script.
The message of both the film
and the book, however, was the
same: humanity dying out, by ra-
diation sickness or suicide, in the
wake of a short war in 1962 that
quickly poisoned all the northern
hemisphere and then. drifted its
lethal clouds across the equator
toward Antarctica.
Most of his novels, from "Mara-
zan" in 1926 to "On the Beach,"
published in 1957, were keyed
either. to events of the .day or to
fictional forecasts concerning
some grim, catastrophic day in the
future. Among his others, "The
Far Country" also was made into
a movie.
Shute was an aeronautical engi-

neer who turned to writing in
1926. He dropped his family name,
Norway, in signing his first works
because he felt that his mployers
probably would take a dim view
of an employe who wrote novels
on the side.
By the time he was ready to
forego a business career, the pen
name was too well known in the
publishing field to be changed.,
He became one of the world's
most financially successful auth-
ors, earning more than $180,000 a
year from royalties. He said he
moved to Australia in 1950 be-
cause of his dislike for Britain's
high income tax rates.
