FROM DIVIDED PAKISTAN
War refugees floding India

NEW DELIII '/t The lid-
in got'rn-ment says about two
nsitlion cr fusees who have fled
civil strife in neihboring East
Pakistan and cros'.ed into India
are creating the largest refugee
problem in modern history.
India claims sami 50,000 re-
fugees cross the border daily
to escape the Eastern province
of Pakistan where Bengalis
mounted a civil war last month
to win. independence from West
Pakistan.
Pakistans Eastern and West-
ern wings are divided geograph-
ically by India.
Indian Foreign Secretary T.
N. Kaul announced the lat-
est figures in a meeting with a
three-member team from the
U.N. High Commission for Re-
fugees which arrived here from
Geneva.
The agency is here to see how
it can provide relief to' the East
Pakistanis.
The Indian foreign secretary,
according to an official summary
of his talks with the U.N team,
said the influx of refugees from
East Pakistan was "the story

of a human tra (%fdy at gigantic
proportions."
"Had we be:pn able to shut
our ow: vyes we could have seal-
ed thi border and not permit-
ted these refugees to come in,
thus making possible an even
treater holocaust than what the
world is witnessing now," in
East Pakistan. Kaul said.
India would be glad "to re-
ceive sympathy, understanding
and assistance" from other na-
tions in dealing with the refugee
problem, Kaul added.
Kaul said that about 1.8 mil-
lion of the refugees in India
were in the state of West Bengal,
of which Calcutta is the capi-
tal.
Indian oficials said the U.N.
mision, headed by Charles Mace,
the U.N. deputy high commis-
sioner for refugees, had prom-
ised "maximum possible help
and assistance" to India.
As the number of refugees
mounted. Prime Minister Indira
Gandhi came under increasing
political pressure to recognize
the three-week-old, self-pro -
claimed government of Bangla

"

Desh -- Benali nation - in
East Pakistan.
Mrs. Gandhi, according to an
official spokesman, ruled out
any immediate recognition of
Bangla Desh but said the mat-
ter was "still under considera-
tion."
Big Four .
Berlin talks
deadloeked
BERLIN (A) - The Big Four
talks on Berlin were virtually
deadlocked yesterday after the
19th session of ambassadors to
divided Germany, allied sources
said.
The Russians, who earlier said
the talks had moved "one step
further," have not budged from
their position paper of March 26,
the informants said, adding the
points made by the Soviet side
are unacceptable to the West.
"It is blocked," one source
emphasized, "with each side
having its own paper that can be
discussed indefinitely. But that
does not mean the matter is any
closer to a solution."
The source added that no one
wants to break off the dialogue
so it ill continue even without
prospect of any progress in the
immediate future.
It was the 19th time the U.S.,
British, French and Soviet am-
bassadors met in their series that
now has lasted over a year. Their
latest meeting lasted ittee hours.
It was the first session since 77
year old Walter Ulbriht stepped
down as East German Conm-
nist party leader, citing reasons
of health and age.
Sir Roger Jackling of Great
Britain chaired the session an'
told newsmen afterwards that the
fact that the talks still continue
constitutes -a positive aspect of
the dialogue at this :stage.
