RAWALPINDI (AP) With swift action, President Zulfikar AH Bhutto has dazzled Pakistan mt of the doldrums over the oss of its east wing. He freed Sheik Mujibur and ailed the last president of Paki- stan, Ccn. Yahya Khan. He seized the management of big wsiness and put magnates under house arrest. But Bhutto faces opposition growing in vocal strength. Most criticism focuses on his refusal to lift the martial law he inherited from Gen. Yahya, and on a political timetable which could further entrench Bhutto's Pakistan People's parly.

But as diplomatic support for Bangladesh grows, Bhutto is battling to keep Paki- stan from isolation and to mar- shal support against capitula- tion to India on peace terms and for the return of prisoners of war and West Paki- stani civilians held in India and Bangladesh.

If Bhutto does not obtain the return of prisoners of war from India, tens of thousands of fami- lies, mostly concentrated in the Punjab, will grow restive. Bhutto defends keeping mar- tial law to press more reforms. He 'justifies his efforts to push lis pnrty into Baluchistan and into Northwest Frontier by criti- cizing his opponents for failing to uproot feudal systems of tribal rule and land ownership.

Mr. Blair was asked what would happen if any of the gas producers failed to get an ex- port commitment.

I'm talking about Wash- ington. They were glad to see me in trouble. So I leaked the details to Drew Pearson." Pearson, the late columnist, wrote an article during the 1960 presidential campaign, in which Nixon was a candidate, that the Hughes Tool Co. had loaned S205.000 to Ms brother, F. Don- ald Nixon. Nixon lost the elec- iion to John F. Kennedy. In other excerpts, Hughes al- legedly called former aide Rob- ert Maheu a "very, icy, calcu- lating man" and said singer-ac- tor Frank Sinatra "was just taking advantage of my prestige to bolster his waning prestige." Maheu managed Hughes' en- terprises in Nevada for four years until his dismissal in 1970 Sinatra had financial interests in two Nevada casinos until the state took away liis gambling licence. Despite denials by Uie Hughes organization, Irving has main taincd that he compiled the manuscript after more than 10 meetings with the reclusive bil lionaire. SEEK IRVING AIDE Irving obtained a furthe delay of his appearance befor a federal grand jury Thursday and authorities issued a sub pocna for Richard R. Suskind, researcher who says he helped Irving assemble the Hughes manuscript. Inspector John D. Tarpey of the U.S. postal sen-ice said Sus- kind who lives on the Spanish island of Majorca, had pre- viously refused his request to come to New York and testify Ijefore a grand jury. The New York Daily News qtotes Danish folk singer Nina van Pallandt as saying she also had been summoned to testify. She has said she was on a trip with Irving to Mexico when Irv- ing alleges he met with Hughes and that such a meeting did not take place. The Los Angeles Times quotes the attractive singer as saying she and Irving were apart "one to I'.-i hours at the most" during the trip in February, 1971. and that she never saw Hughes or anyone resembling him during the trip.
