London school protests mount Mothers cliain themselves to railings of county hall LONDON (AP) Mothers chained themselves to the rail- ings of the county hall for hours. Others locked a school official in a classroom for a day. Scores of families were re- ported to have moved their chil- dren to private schools from the state system. Parents of 50 chil- dren organized their own school In a neighborhood church hall. The protests were against the schools assigned to children under a system partly designed to mix students.

Politics played a role. The London education board, La- bor-c'ominated. favored what Britons call big schools somewhat on the North American co-ed style, de- signed lo break down class bar- riers, with some students plan- ning to go on lo university and others not. Many traditional parents and prominent Conservative party members preferred the old grammar schools, which pre- pared top students for universi- ties. Those without university hopes went to other schools, usually to learn a trade. London's schools are mil- hire of comprehensives and grammar schools.

First it is considered re- markable that the Constituent Assembly should have been convened within a year of the birth of the new nation. An achievement which would be noteworthy even under nor- mal circumstances has been made more so because of the terrible carnage which marked the advent of this in- dependent land of more than 75 million people. Prime Minister M u i b u r Rahman says nearly three million people were MUed dur- ing the freedom struggle and about half a million women raped and otherwise mo- lested. Ten million people fled to India, while another IS mil- lion moved about from place to place within Bangladesh because of fear. The second most notable thing about constitution-mak- ing in Bangladesh is its com- mitment to democratic princi- ples. The 153-cIause draft consti- tution bill presented by Law Minister Kamal Hossain says that the guiding principles of the new Asian nation will be democracy, socialism, secu- larism and nationalism. BANS FORCED LABOR The draft provides for an independent judiciary, funda- mental rights, freedom of reli- gion, the right to property, free movement and free speech and forced labor. prohibition of The draft oil] says it is the fundamental responsibility of the government to provide the people with the basic necessi- ties of life including food, clo thing, education and medical care. It promises a "radical transformation" of rural areas through tbe promotion of an agricultural revolution. Observers have taken note of the promise of social secu- rity envisaged in the draft constitution. The Parliament of Bangla- desh will have 300 members, with at least 15 seats reserved for women. Prime Minister Rahman has said that the work of drawing up the constitution will be completed as soon as possible so that Bangladesh can have its first democratic general election. This is an- other promising aspect, espe- cially in the light of allega- tions made by some political groups that Rahman and his Awami League party are only interested i n monopolizing power in their hands. THREATENS AGITATION Observers do not see any difficulty in the Constituent Assembly adopting the draft constitution without any major changes. But frouble is not entirely ruled out. Already, Maulana Bhashani, the leader of the pro-Peking leftists in Bangladesh, has threatened to launch an agita- tion if the Constituent Assem- bly "rushes through" with the draft constitution. Bhashani has questioned the right of the former East Paki- stan members of the Pakistan National Assembly to consti- tute themselves as the Con- stituent Assembly ef Bangla- desh. Perhaps the biggest IUT- prise made by Bhashani Is nil demand that Bangladesh should be basically an Islamic slate rooted in Islamic law. This is seen as an attempt to stir up religious feelings against the constitution-mak- ers. Bhashani told a public rally that ;'if Prime Minister Rah- man ignores (he interests of Moslems, there will be an- other Vietnam in Bangla- desh." Though Bangladesh is a pre- dominantly Moslem country, observers are confident that Rahman will be able to push through his plan for making the country a secular state with equal rights and oppor- tunities for the followers of all religions.
