The telegram, sent Wednesday,
"The Board of Education of the

boards of education throughout

"In the present crisis our

were opened shortly after India
turned off the water and an agree-
ment was reached May 4, 1949.
India promised not to suddenly
cut off the water.
Four years of fruitless negotia-
tions followed. Then in 1952 the
World Bankstepped in to try to
work out a settlement, and in 1954
made the proposal which is the
basis for today's negotiations.
Bank's Suggestion
'The bank suggested that the
entire flow of the western rivers-
the Indus, the Jhelum and the
Chenab-be made available ex-
clusively for Pakistan, except for
the minor flow in Kashmir. India,
in turn, was to have exclusive use
of the eastern rivers-the Ravi,
Beas; and Sutlej, except for a
transitional period when India
would continue to supply some wa-
ter from these rivers to Pakistan.
In addition, the bank proposed
that India should bear the cost,
in proportion to the benefits re-
ceived by her, of certain link ca-
nals in Pakistan required to re-
place from the western rivers the
water now received by some Paki-
stan canals from the eastern riv-
India accepted the bank propos-
al. However, Pakistan has not yet
said whether or not it will accept
The sum India wo'uld pay Paki-
stan for construction of link ca-
nals and reservoirs has not been
set. Pakistan wants to make sure
this will be high enough to sup-
ply water for irrigation projects
approved, but not yet carried out,
at the time of partition. Pakistan
is also reported to want assurance
that the sum will be paid in cash..
