International
French elections
PARIS - President Valery
Giscard d'Estaing has suffered a
double blow - from both the
left and the right - to his
prestige in municipal elections
throughout France.
First-round voting yesterday
showed steadily-rising popular-
ity for the opposition alliance of
Socialists and Communists,
which made impressive gains in
more than 30 provincial cities.
The Communist party emeerg-
ed with a dominant position in
French city governments after

paigning closed in much of In-
dia yesterday as the world's
largest electorate prepared for
parliamentary elections delayed
a year by Prime Minister In-
dira Gandhi's now-ended 19
months of "emergency" rule.
Supporters of Gandhi's Con-
gress party, which has govern-
ed India since independence 30
years ago, and members of a
newly united opposition all pre-
dicted landslide victories for
their sides.
Most neutral observers thought
the outcome was too close to
forecast. The results were ex-'
pected to be determined by vot-
ers in the two most ,opulous
states of Uttah Pradesh and Bi-
har, which hold a fourth of the
542 parliamentary seats.
The campaign marked the
first major realignment of In-"
dia's political forces since inde-
pendence in 1950, a process ex-
pected to continue after the elec-
tions.
Four important non-Commun-
ist opposition parties merged in-
to a single national group
known as the Janata or Peo-
ple's party. It in turn worked
out alliances with regional
groups to try to ensure a united'
vote against the Congress party.
For the-first time since 1969,
there was a split in the Con-
gress party itself, with Agri-i
culture Minister Jagjivan Ram:

The increase "probably repre-
sents a temporary boost from
the spring breakup in the North-
east and Southeast, and t h e
main contributors, the Ohio and
Mississippi, will probably begin
dropping again soon unless there
is sonne significant precipita-
tion," said Carroll Saboe, chief
of the Geological Survey's Cur-
rent Water Conditions Group. .

He was asked by Rep. Lester

similar stand in regard to co-

we are in the process now of

the most extensive left-wing
election victories in F r a n c e
since the end of World War II.
In races decided Sunday in the
first round of nationwide muni-
cipal voting, the Communists
won 60 cities of over 30.000 pop-
ulation compared to 56 for their
Socialist allies and 34 for par-
ties aligned with President Val-
ery Giscard d'Estaing's parlia-
mentary majority.
The second major blow for the
President was the defeat of his
own hand-picked candidate by
Gaullist leader Jacques Chirac
in a race for the Mayor of Paris,
a post that has been vacant for
a century.

Pot penalties
WASHINGTON - The Carter'
administration asked Congress
yesterday to decriminalize mari-
juana possession and said it is
"carefully re-examining" its po-
sition on penalties for possessing
cocaine.
However, U.S. Commissioner
of Customs Vernon Acree said
m a r i j u a n a decriminaliza-
tion might increase the amount
of the drug smuggled into the
country.
"Without the threat of crim-
inal prosecution,-many who for-
merly feared involvement with
marijuana may now become in-
volved," Acree told a special.
House committee on narcotics.
Dr. Peter Bourne, Carter's
choice to head the Office of
Drug Abuse Policy, told the
same committee that theadmin-
istration "will continue to dis-
courage marijuana use, but we
feel criminal penalties that
brand otherwise law-abiding
people for life are neither an ef-
fective nor an appropriate de-
terrent.
Bourne said that despite harsh
penalties, marijuana use had
steadily increased in the past .
