THE BANGLADESH GOVERNMENT, jubilant after gaining
Soviet bloc diplomatic recognition, turned to the West yesterday
in its search for acceptance as an independent nation.
The Soviet announcement of recognition early yesterday was
followed by a broadcast from Prague that Czechoslovakia also hadE
recognized the new government, with only Romania and Hungary
among the Soviet bloc nations yet to follow.
Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abdus Samud Azad in Dacca ap-
pealed to the United States, the Western Allies and The People's Re-r
public of China to hasten recognition of his government.
The most recent word from U.S. officials in Washington, how-
ever, was that recognition was not even under consideration.

HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER GERALD FORD of Michi-
gan said yesterday that he supports a proposed constitutional
amendment to outlaw busing to achieve school desegregation.
The amendment, which states that no student shall be as-j
signed or required to attend a school because of his race, is before
the House Judiciary Committee.
Ford signed a discharge petition that will bring the amendment
to a vote in the House if it is signed by a majority of the member-
ship. It now has 134 of the needed 218 signatures.
U.S. DISTRICT COURT JUDGE R. Dixon Herman said
yesterday in Harrisburg, Pa., that the jury will be sequestered for
the duration of the trial of the Rev. Philip Berrigan and six other
anti-war activists, to shield the jurors from publicity and insure
a "fair and impartial hearing."
Father Berrigan and the other defendants are accused of
conspiring while Berrigan was imprisoned at the Lewisburg federal
penitentiary..
They allegedly planned to kidnap presidential adviser Henry
Kissinger, bomb heating tunnels of certain buildings in Washington,
D.C., and raid draft board offices around the country.

A DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATOR who was present when
armed police stormed the Attica Correctional Facility last Sep-a
tember called yesterday in Albany for the impeachment of
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller for the way he handled the inmate up-
rising in which 43 persons 'died.
In an emotional 20-minute speech to the Assembly, Arthur Eve,
a member of a committee which tried to negotiate a settlement of
the dispute, said, "My governor devised the most diabolical plot, the
most diabolical scheme, that has ever been told in the annals of
government anywhere."
When asked to comment on the accusation, Rockefeller replied,
"I don't think it calls for a comment."

deficit reported
worst on record
WASHINGTON (A -- The United States closed 1971 with
its worst trade deficit on record, and its first in 83 years, the
Commerce Department said yesterday in a final report of
last year's exports and imports.
The trade deficit swelled to $2.046 billion as exports ex-
panded by only 2 per cent and imports jumped 14 per cent.
A trade deficit results when the value of imports from
foreign companies exceeds that of U.S. exports. This adds to
the U.S. balance-of-payments problems and puts American
businesses into stiffer competition with foreign firms.
The deficit was the first calen-?

Rep. Shirley Chisholm yester-
day officially became a Demo-
cratic presidential candidate,
formally announcing her candi-
dacy in a church in the Bed-
ford-Stuyvesant slum of Brook-
lyn where she grew up and once
was a school teacher.
Chisholm, 47, the first black
woman in Congress. said she
would enter primaries in Flori-
da, and North Carolina while
keeping a close watch on the
New York primary.
She also said she \would run
delegates in Pennsylvania, Illi-
nois and Massachusetts.
Chisholm omitted mention of
other Democratic candidates in
her formal announcement of
candidacy, although she told
newsmen afterwards she ex-
pected her campaign to hurt the
chances of New York Mayor
John Lindsay because "Lindsay

will be getting votes from the
same area that I am."
President Nixon she said, "has
broken his promises to us and
therefore lost his claim to our
trust and confidence to him. I.
cannot believe that this admin-
istration would have been elect-
ed four years ago if we had
known what we know today."
In related political action,
Pennsylvania Gov. M i I t o n
Schapp cast aside his previous
neutrality and declared his
backing of Sen. Edmund Muskie
(D-Me.) for the Democratic
nomina.tion.
The announcement in Harris-
burg, Pa., was seen by many ob-
servers as a setback to the can-
didacy of Sen. Hubert Hum-
phrey, (D-Minn.), who report-
edly had been hoping for a
strong showing in Pennsylvania.
Schapp's endorsement came
on the day that Pennsylvania
allows candidates to begin cir-
culating petitions for slates of
convention delegates and Mus-
kie, Chiisholm, Humphrey, and
Sen. George McGovern (D-S.D.)
are expected to run such slates.

dar-year trade deficit since 1888,
when the red ink was $33 million,
the department said.
The department added that the
deficit in December was $273.7
million marking the third straight
month of uifavorable balances
and the eighth month for all of
1971.
The government blamed the
worsening picture on dock strikes,
the threat of strikes in the steel
industry which expanded imports,
and an economic slowdown in the
major industrialized nations over-
Exports in 1971 were valued at
$43.555 billion while imports were
X45.602 billion.
The 1971 deficit represented a
massive turnaround from a year
ago, when the nation recorded a
$2,7-billion surplus..
The Commerce Department con-
ceded that the 1971 rise in imports
was greater than had been ex-
pected even if the world economy
was out of kilter.
"This suggests that transitory
influences - anticipations of im-
port restrictions and exchange
rate uncertainties - may have
been contributing factors," the de-
partment said.
It was in mid-1971 that Presi-
dent Nixon imposed the 10 per
cent surcharge and announced the
United States would no longer re-
deem dollars for gold. The sur-
charge was removed in late De-
cember when a new agreement on
money - exchange rates was
reached.
But the uncertainty during late
1971 may have retarded trade, the
department indicated. It also of-
fered another reason: American
consumers are expanding their
taste for imported goods.

SHEIK KHALID, the ruler of the little Persian Gulf emirate
of Sharjah, was shot to death early yesterday ,in an attempted
coup led by a cousin.
The Sheik's brother, Sheik Sakr bin Mohammed, was named
his successor. He led a countercharge of police and troops of the new
Union of Arab Emirates in repulsing the coup.

Nixon asks
for higher
U. S. debt
WASHINGTON (4P) - President
Nixon asked Congress yesterday
for a $50-billion raise in the na-
tional debt ceiling, the biggest
single increase since World War
II, to accommodate record red-ink
spending.
The oral request from the
Treasury to the House Ways and
Means Committee is for a borrow-
ing limit of $480 billion through
June 30, 1973.
The committee has scheduled a
hearing on the legislation for
Monday, with Treasury Secretary
John Connally and George Shultz,
director of the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget,~ expected to be
the first witnesses.
The present ceiling of $430 bil-
lion, $400 billion designated as
permanent, $30 billion as tempor-
ary, has been in effect since July
1, 1971.
Officials have long known an
increase would be needed, but the
amount was not, arrived at until
the budget made public Monday
showed deficits estimated at $38.8
billion for the following year.
While a majority of Democrats
in Congress are expected to criti-
cize Nixon financial policies, leg-
islation for a borrowing authority
increase will almnost certainly be
approved. Congress has never re-
fused such an extension.
The Treasury has estimated
that the present $430 billion ceil-
ing will be exceeded about March
1 as the government is forced to
'borrow during a time of slack re-
ceipts before the income tax dead-
line.
The debt on Jan. 2 was less than
$3.5 billion below the ceiling.
Meanwhile, the Treasury dis-
closed that the nation's total re-
serve assets suffered the deepest
yearly decline in history, $2.3 bil-
lion, during- 1971.

WASHINGTON (P)-Leaders on
opposing sides of a seesaw Senate
fight over _ enforcement of equal
employment legislation yesterday
ruled out any compromise.
Republican Leader Hugh Scott
(R-Pa.) told newsmen he hoped
a sensible compromise could be
reached, saying he understood
talks were underway.
He referred specifically to Sens.
Peter Dominick (R-Colo.) and Ja-
cob Javits, (R-N.Y.), but they
both said there would be no com-
promise.
Dominick is chief sponsor of an
amendment to require the Equal
Employment Opportunity Com-
mission (EEOC) to bring suits in
the federal district courts to en-
force its findings of job discrimi-
nation based on race, religion, sex,
or national origin.
The amendment would erase
from the bill authority for the

EEOC to issue cease-and-desist
orders. The commission now is
limited to persuasion and concilia-
tion in trying to prevent discrimi-
nation.
The Senate rejected Dominick's
amendment Monday by a 43-41
vote but voted to reconsider. A
second, decisive vote will take
place this morning.
Civil rights and labor leaders
are pushing for cease-and-desist
powers for the EEOC, while Pres-
ident Nixon and major business
organizations have advocated en-
forcement through the courts.
One change in Dominick's
amendment, offered by Sen. J.
Glenn Beall, (R-Md.), with Domi-
nick's concurrence, was adopted
by a 73-0 vote. It would provide
that any court award in a dis-
crimination case could not exceed
two years' back pay.
