L No. 6 30 A, B APttETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., FtlDAY, MAtCH 6, 1959 AMOCIATBD WUUE URV19B Price Seven India Angry Over Pakistan PaciWithU.S. Atk 'Immediate Debate In Parliament 10 Inches Snow Hit Fox Cities, i Storm Paralyzes Most of State New Delhi The new U.S.-Pakistan military pact; touched off an uproar today! in the Indian parliament with! communists seeking an im- mediate debate. Prime Minister Nehru still- td the commotion by promis- ing to ask U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker to clarify what the treaty involves. Nehru said that Bunker told the Indian foreign secretary the agreement covered ag- gression only as defined in the Eisenhower other words, communist aggression gave assurances that it added no new factors to the India-Pakistan disputes. Fears Use of Arms Nehru said he understood the concern of parliament members and would seek fur- ther assurances from Bunker. He had told a press confer- ence earlier today he was still uneasy that Pakistan might use against India American arms furnished it for use only against communism. To bolster the anti-commu- nist Baghdad pact, the Unit- ed States signed mutual de- fense treaties in Ankara, Tur- key, yesterday with Pakistan, Iran and Turkey. The United States pledged to take "such appropriate action, including the use of armed forces, as- may be mutually agreed up- on" in event of aggression against the three Asian pow- ers. Initial reports on the treat- ies did not say that only com- munist aggression was speci- fied, and responsible U.S. sources were not immediately available for comment. Dur- ing the negotiation of the treaties, U.S. diplomats re- portedly were aware of the effect on Indian and other neutralist nations of a blanket pledge, and apparently the clause providing for mutual agreement before action was designed to assure such non- communist nations. 8 Killed in Plane Crash Heavy Rainfall Blamed for Deaths Of Marine Crew One More Snow Storm like this and Joseph Ebben, 109 W.
