GandhIn re-~affirmsmother'spolices

From AP and UPI
NEW DELHI-Prime Minister Rajiv
Gandhi was elected to head the party
molded by his slain mother yesterday
and pledged to continue her efforts to end
India's crushing poverty and build ties
to both superpowers.
Gandhi promised to preserve the
"precious legacy" of his mother, Indira
Gandhi, who was assassinated Oct. 31
by two Sikh security guards.
"I PLEDGE to ... work for a united,
strong and prosperous India, an India
devoted to the cause of peace," he said
in the 15-minute speech he delivered
first in Hindu and then in English.
Gandhi read his statement in a
steady, unemotional tone from his
mother's old mahogany-paneled office.
He took over the office earlier in the
day, .marking the end of the official 12-
day mourning period. His mother's por-

trait hung on the wall behind him, and
he wore a traditional white "kurta"
tunic with a light brown shawl over his
Gandhi said his mother's
assassination had plunged the nation of
730 million people into a "grave and
critical moment," But he referred only
indirectly in the suspected Sikh ex-
tremist conspiracy behind it and the
Hindu rioting that claimed more than
1,000 lives across northern India
following Mrs. Gandhi's murder.
NOR DID HE mention the parliamen-
tary elections that, according to the In-
dian constitution, must be held by
Echoing many of his mother's long-
standing positions and proposing no
new domestic or international
initiatives of his own, Gandhi
applauded India's relations
with the Soviet Union and gave only

curt recognition to economic, technical
and cultural ties with the United States.
"WE HIGHLY value the wide-
ranging and time-
tested relationship with the Soviet
Union, based upon mutual cooperation,
friendship and vital support when most
needed," Gandhi said.
He described relations with
Washington only as "multi-faceted,"
but said India "attaches importance"
to the aid it receives from the United
He stressed that India wanted to im-
prove its often-strained relations with
its neighbors, China and Pakistan, "in a
spirit of peace, friendship and
He also called for a new government
"work ethic" and said, "No quarter will
be given to the corrupt, the lazy, the

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP)-Secretary of

State George Shultz

condemned terrorism, armed revolution and repression
yesterday in a speech to the Organization of American
"The apostles of the violent left preach that armed
revolution is necessary to change society for the better,"
Shultz said in remarks prepared for delivery to the general
assembly of the 31OAS member nations. "The apostles of
the violent right answer that repression is necessary to
preserve civilization."
HE SAID the United States "will not be driven off a
democratic course by terrorism, whether at home or
Before the opening session, Shultz met with the foreign
ministers of El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras and
Guatemala. According to Foreign Minister Fdgardo Paz

Barnica of Honduras, they discussed the contadora group's
peace proposal for Central America.
Paz told reporters that Honduras was concerned about an
arms buildup in neighboring Nicaragua and that it represen-
ted "a serious threat to Central American nations."
SHULTZ, in his speech, said the United States "pledges its
continued support" for a workable Central American peace
initiative. He also said that "promises will not reduce an
already dangerous military imbalance that is constantly fed
from outside the hemisphere."
The comment was considered a reference to Soviet arms
aid to Nicaragua.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Isidro Morales Paul said af-
ter the meeting that Shultz showed the United States has a
"better understanding of the problems facing Latin
American nations.'

Report calls new NA]

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -
NATO's new war strategy doctrine -
countering a Soviet attack on the West
with missile strikes deep into Eastern
Europe - may already by outdated by
recent Soviet military plans, a report
said yesterday.
NATO formally adopted the new non-
nuclear doctrine - "follow-on forces
attack" - last Friday, even though
costs and schedules for its development
remain uncertain.
THE REPORT by Karsten Voigt, a

member of the West German
Parliament, also cited a lack of en-
thusiasm for the new doctrine among
some North Atlantic Treaty
Organization member nations,
specifically Britain and the Netherlan-
Voigt submitted the study to the Nor-
th Atlantic Assembly, which began
hearing reports yesterday on a variety
of subjects affecting the alliance. The
assembly, comprised of national
legislators from the 16 member coun-

[ strategy
tries, opens three days of sessions
tomorrow at the Palais des Congres
Voigt's report, based on two years of
study by a North Atlantic Assembly
subcommittee, said the new NATO doc-
trine is linked to fears that waves of
Warsaw Pact troops reinforcing an
initial attack would quickly overwhelm
NATO forces.
THE NEW doctrine calls for non-
nuclear weapons and tracking systems
to "see" far behind the batlefront

horizon and delay or destroy a second
echelon of Soviet troops. It explicitly
excludes the use of nuclear weapons.
The Voigt report said the new doc-
trine appeared to be based on an out-
dated analysis of the equipment and
organization of Soviet combat forces in
Eastern Europe. It said new evidence
suggests the Soviets are emphasizing
stronger lead forces and devoting less
attention to subsequent echelons.
"The proposed expenditure of vast
resources by NATO to strike mobile
targets in the second echelon would
make little sense if this analysis of
Soviet operations is correct," the report
The Soviet official news agency
Tass has denounced NATO's adoption
of the new doctrine, saying it would
"accelerate the arms race and growing
tension in Europe."
Voigt added that representatives
from some NATO member countries,
including Britain and the Netherlands,
had told his sub-committee they
questioned the cost-effectiveness and
the technical feasibility of the new doc-

U.S. aids Israel-Lebanon talks
BEIRUT, Lebanon-The United States joined efforts yesterday to salvage
the suspended talks between Israel and Lebanon on withdrawal of Israeli
troops from southern Lebanon.
The troop withdrawl talks started Thursday in the Lebanese border
town of Naqoura under the auspices of the United Nations. But the Lebanese
government broke off the meetings Saturday after Israel arrested four top
Shiite Moslem militiamen in southern Lebanon.
Israel contends the arrested militiamen including Amal militia leader
Mahmoud Fakih, were involved in guerrilla warfare against Israeli troops.
Richard Murphy, U.S. assistant secretary of state, met with Israeli Defen-
se Minister Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv and then flew to Beirut for discussions
with the Lebanese government.
"We are hopeful that the talks will resume soon," Murphy told reorters
following a meeting with President Amin Gemayel and Prime Minister
Rashid Karami.
Sniper kills Oregon student, self
EUGENE, Ore.-A sniper with a blackened face and wearing military
fatigues opened fire with a high-powered rifle yesterday at the University of
Oregon's football stadium, killing one and wounding another, then took his'
own life, police said.
The gunman shot the student at 8:30 a.m. PST and fired randomly for
another hour, at one point shooting at a policeman in a parking lot adjacent
to the stadium, authorities said. The officer was not injured.
The wounded victim, an unidentified male, was shot in the neck and but-'
tocks, but managed to take refuge in a university weight room in the stadium
with nine other people who barricaded themselves in the room.
A police tactical team entered the weight room and evacuated the 10
people at 11 a.m. PST about 2 1/2 hours after the shooting began, said Sgt.
Tim McCarthy.
FDA approves vaginal sponges
ANAHEIM, Calif. - The vaginal sponge is "a relatively safe product" for
birth control, U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials said yesterday af-
ter finding only 12 cases of toxic shock syndrome among an estimated 600,000
women who regularly use the device.
Toxic shock syndrome is caused by a toxin produced by certain strains of
Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The syndrome first came to public atten-
tion more than four years ago, chiefly among young women who use tam-
pons, although men also can get the ailment.
There were no fatalities among the.12 confirmed cases in women who used
18 million spermicidal sponges - sold under the brand name Today - bet-
ween the time they were introduced in June 1983 and the end of a Food and
Drug Administration review, said Dr. Gerald Faich, an FDA associate direc-
The chance of getting toxic shock from the sponges is "way below the odds
of getting struck by lightning," said Faich, who presented the figures
yesterday at the American Public Health Association's annual meeting."...
It's an unusual, rare side effect."
The company that makes the sponges - VLI Corp. of Irvine, Calif. -
believes the disease occurred in those women purely by coincidence, said
Dr. Bruce Rose, VLI's vice president of regulatory affairs.
London coal strike causes chaosI
LONDON.- Thousands of striking coal miners armed with firebombs and
homemade spears fought with police in northern England and Wales yester-
day while hundreds more men broke ranks and returned to work.
Police in Yorkshire, the militant stronghold that was the stormy center of
yesterday's violence, reported "chaos" around the county.
"It's been the worst night of violence we've seen since the strike began,"
said a South Yorkshire police spokesman who would not give his name. "It's
been coordinated throughout the county."
Nonetheless, an estimated 54,000 of the National Union of Mineworkers'
178,000 members are now listed as "not on strike.
In remarks prepared for the annual Lord Mayor's Banquet in London,
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said "Violence will not succeed, for the
police and the courts will not bow to it."
Bishop defends political activity
WASHINGTON - The leader of America's Catholic bishops, defending
recent plunges by church officials into political and social issues, said
yesterday that to remain silent on abortion, nuclear threats and the huge
gaps between rich and poor would be a "dereliction of pastoral duty. "
Bishop James Malone, head of the National Conference of Catholic
Bishops, noted "the intensity of the recent debate" over the involvement of
religious leaders in public-policy matters.
Malone said such debate was neither new nor limited to the United States.
"It is impossible to interpret world events today if one does not grasp the
role of religion," he declared.
He also said he wouldn't condemn bishops who emphasize a single issue in
public because "the conference exists to enhance the ministry of each
bishop, not to constrain it."
Still, he said, the bishops' new reputation for speaking out - and any in-
fluence that might accompany such a reputation - has been won through the.I

power of speaking as a group representing the nation's more than 300 car-
dinals, archbishops and bishops.
