Hayter said next step was to go to the people and indicate that they could stay if they would sign a new agreeing to the increase The owner used the eviction notice as a means of getting around a provision in the Landlord Tenant Act which requires that tenants be given three months' notice of a proposed rent increase. Some of the tenants have agreed to the higher rent so the owner gets the increase months earlier than he would Aid. Hayter said The eviction notice said tenants would have to vacate June. 1.

Hayter suggested the incident illustrates why the Landlord and Tenant Advisory Board should have the manpower and fiscal resources to deal effectively with appeals from tenants who feel they are being unfairly treated by landlords In the case rent increases may be justified but the tactics of the although are morally he said. TO END CENSORSHIP CAIRO Egypt's new minister of Kamal Abul said Mon- day he was under instructions from President Anwar Sadat lo end censorship of dispatches from foreign correspondents in except for military matters. Correspondents must submit all their reports to censorship under a wartime and the minister said the re- quirement could not be elimi- nated overnight.

Why and how did India's bomb By KEVIN DOYLE The Canadian Preis Canada now has added its voice to a chorus of inter- national protest against the explosion of a nuclear device by India but the country with most to fear is India's populous China. The explosion came nine years and eight months after the Chinese announced the detonation of their first nuclear device. Since then the Chinese have built up a formidable arsenal. In recent years Chinese military preparation has been directed more towards the Soviet Union as relations between the two countries deteriorated to danger levels. China must also take into account another possi- observers are saying the India will develop into a nuclear power as well. This might lead the Chinese to expand their defence to take account of that border in addition to the one with the Soviet Union. For the this might be considered something of a with their arch- the having to disperse their forces along two frontiers. the major ques- tions being asked in inter- national circles since the ex- plosion are why and how it could have happened. The most important reason behind the Indian decision seems to have been domestic pressure and despite official disclaimers of any military in- it has clearly established that India is well on the way to astenng nuclear bomb tech- nology. The demand for an Indian atomic bomb goes back to 1964 when large sections of the public were genuinely rightly or with the possibility of China using her atomic weapons against India. In a carefully- prepared public survey showed that three out of every four persons in India favored manufacture of atomic weapons. Even more how- is the question of how In- dia carried out the explosion and whether it has help from an outside power such as the Soviet Union. Ivan Prime Minister Trudeau's top foreign policy is quoted as saying Canadian-built nuclear reactors in India could not have produced the grade of plutomum needed for the blast. Canada first began helping India with nuclear technology in the 1930s with the firm understanding it would be used for peaceful purposes. Head has also been quoted as saying the plutonium must have come from june of the five countries' with nuclear the Soviet Union or the United States. But British at are extremely skeptical that any outside help was given to India. Well-versed experts in London say it would be extremely unlikely that India itself would not by now be perfectly capable of separating out high-grade plutonium from the uranium used in the atomic power reactors. One source said enough for Saturday's are produced by India every year. Experts at London's Institute for Strategic Studies share this view but they say the explosion raises still another issue of major importance they now must consider whether its mastery of atomic explosive techniques might make it vulnerable in future to a pre- emptive strike by China Because of they Prime Minister Indira Gandhi may find herself in a position where she feels forced to con- struct quickly an efficient missile-based delivery system to forestall any such threat. Sources say India has active plans for launching a space communications satellite in orbit and this will enable Indian scientists to increase their knowledge of rocket and missile technology at the same time.
