The author, Richard L. Walker, director of the Institute of International Studies at the University of South Carolina, said: "A reasonable estimate a-ould be that the figure ap- proaches 50 million Chinese."

In a joint statement, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gro- myko and Indian officials ex- pressed "their firm conviction QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Copifol Bldg. Hi PHONE 328-7684M that there can be no military solution" to the political crisis. The statement said the two countries must guarantee "the creation of conditions of safety for the return of the refugees to their homes, which alone would answer the interests of the en- tire people of Pakistan and the cause of the preservation of peace in the area." This referred to seven million refugees who fled to India when the war broke out last March. Indian officials said the state- ment did not represent any de- parture from previous Indian statements, which said that any political solution must also take into consideration the "elected representatives of the people." This referred to Sheik Muji- bur Rahman's Awami League, which won a majority in the elections last December for a National Assembly that has never met. Rahman wanted lo set up an independent state in East Pakistan, and later was arrested by the West Pakistani army. Questioned by reporters about steps to be taken to bring about a political solution in East Paki- stan, an Indian official replied: "First, stoppage of military op- erations and atrocities in East Pakistan; second, exodus of the refugees must stop, and third, conditions with adequate guar- antees of safety must be cre- ated for the return of the seven million refugees now in India." Other officials said India and the Soviet Union had begun mu- tual consultations to consider the threat to peace in this re- gion posed by the East Pakistan crisis.

For example, he died a New York Times editorial of June 2, 1959, in reporting "estimates that the first decade of the Peo- ple's Republic of China had brought the extermination of 30 million people." Moscow Radio, which he at one point calls "obviously not the most reliable of nevertheless is quoted as charg- ing that "in the course of ]0 years, more than 25 million peo- ple in China were extermi- nated." Walker said in the study "it is probable that the Chinese forced labor camps have exacted a higher toll in human life than the mass executions."
