Gandhi Reaches Peak In Battle For Power By JOHN ROGERS NEW DELHI (Reuters) Prime Minister Indira Gandhi appears more' powerful today Ulan at any time in her four- year leadership of India. Many major political battles still lie ahead but her opponents have so far been unable to shake her hold on power, de- spite her dependence in Parlia- ment on support from independ- ents, regional parties Moscow Communists. After a year of fighting from a minority position, Mrs. Gan- dhi has won a reputation as a tough tactician prepared to take risks for victory. Residents Oppose Yukon Oil Pipeline OLD CROW, Y.T. (CP) To put it in city terms, the caribou represents the regular pay cheque and the muskrat the savings account. And to the people of this tiny community miles north of Edmonton, oil compa- nies and pipeline crews repre- sent Frank and Jesse James and their holdup boys and bank robbers. Interviews with leaders of this town of 170 people convey a loud and clear message: They do not want an oil pipe- line across their country be- cause they fear it will inter- fere with caribou migration. Furthermore, they don't want exploration going on in Crow Flats, their traditional hunting grounds. Oil companies might pro- vide jobs, advocates say. But oil and gas company explora- tion teams have been in the area for two summers now and local residents say they have provided no employment to speak of for the natives. DEPEND ON THE LAND Peter Lord, a respected spokesman a t community meetings, said some of the men would go out to Calgary or Edmonton for training to work with the oil companies, but that in the long run the land is the living for the com- munity. Abraiiam Peter, 32, trained in Whitehorse to use heavy- duty construction equipment so the commusjty could build the new airstrip that is its one link with the outside world. There are no roads into this most northerly Yukon com- munity. Mr. Peter chose to work this summer with archeologist Dr. Richard Moreland at dig- gings along the Porcupine River near the town. He has strong feelings for the culture and past of his people and wants to sec this preserved, not destroyed. government-sponsored build- ing program for houses and the new, modem school, for the (own. But ho has his own ideas about how the children should be educated. He wants them taught "half in the old way and half in the new." Loucheux, the tradi- tional language, shouW be taught, he said. The adults still speak it and the children understand it but can't speak it. THREAT TO CARIBOU The sign above the post off- ice, he says, is in French and English. Charlie Abel, the town's first Indian justice of the peace, and his brother Alfred, the chief, are both against an oil pipeline in the area. A proposed route for a pipe- line from A1 a s k a 's North Slope oil finds is across the pyramid-shaped Yukon Terri- tory and south along the Mackenzie River valley. To prevent disruption by the permafrost, it would probably have to be buiit. several feet above the ground which the Indians say would form a bar- rier to caribou migrating north to south. Caribou provides the main meat for the community. The Indians .laugh when oil companies say that caribou crossings might be provided. "Maybe they can't read the they say FEARS POLLUTION Oil company officials say hat in the last two seasons hunters and trappers haven't used Crow Flats.' Asked about this, the Indian is that because of con- struction work in the town hey have drawn better pay cheques by doing jobs on the construction sites, but that hey still want the flats left alone. That's where they get nuskrat, which allows them o earn money when construc- 'ion ceases. Clara Frost, matriarch of he Frost clan, worries about jossible pollution. "Of course we don't want me pipciine. it mignt Break and the oil flow into the Crow Rivor and I he Porcupine. "And I sure like to drink good water." The grandmother premier, 52 next month, is certainly undis puted leader of her governing Congress party. Following a sweeping cabinet reshuffle in July she has taken persona control of home affairs, the ke> portfolio in managing India's 17 states, several, of which are unstable, and at least three of which are hostile to her. NEEDS OTHER PARTIES But until there is a genera: election, she will have to rely on support from other parties to stay in power. The Congress 'has only 215 seats in a 523-member Parlia- ment, nearly 50 short of the se- cure majority which the undi- vided Congress party lost when it split into two rival groups a year ago. Her program is radical, with Dank nationalization and the ab- olition of the privy purses and Jtles of India's maharajas her main moves since the party split. Her style is populist, with constant assurances that her main concern is the welfare of India's poor millions. She scored a major triumph last month in the southern state of Kerala, where the Congress became the largest single party in the state assembly. Encouraged by the Kerala re- sult, Mrs. Gandhi's party took the long-term battle to the heartland of Indian politics two weeks ago and started a politi- cal row that could prove her toughest test since the split. WITHDREW SUPPORT The Congress party withdrew. its support from the coalition government of Uttar Pradesh state, headed by the Bharatiya Kranti Dal, (KBKD.) party, leav- ing it without a majority. Chief Minister Charan Singh of the BKD refused to resign and claimed he could form a fresh ministry with support from other parties in the assem- bly in Lucknow. The Congress party also claimed a majority. At the height of the crisis, Mrs. Gandhi clamped the state under central government rule and suspended the assembly after the governor said a stable o v e r n m e n t could not be ormed. Ultar Pradesh, a sprawling northern province of over 90 million people, is the most im- portant power base for the Con- gress party in New Delhi be- cause it returns 85 members of Parliament. It is also Mrs. Gan- dhi's home state. When parliament meets next month, eyes will be on the 25- seat Dravida Munnctra Kaza- gham which governs in Tamil Nadu Madras State and has been one of Mrs. Gandhi's main power props. If DMK members oppose the government over Uttar Pradesh or stay neutral, as many ob- servers helicve thoy may, Mrs. Gandhi could he in trouble.

Local Scottish police were re- ported being used Monday night to help guard the Queen, who was at Balmoral Castle, and a special watch is said to have Seen ordered on the royal chil- dren. HEATH GIVEN PRIORITY Among politicians, Prime Minister Heath and Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas- Home are 'being' given 'priority from the security point of view. The Daily Mirror says Scot- land Yard is investigating a kid- nap threat against Douglas: Home's wife. The mass-circulation tabloid says the threat involved holding Jer in exchange for two of the men imprisoned in connection with' the Great Train Robbery of 1963. Scotland Yard, in declining comment on the latest reports of extra security arrangements, says it never makes statements about the guarding of Britain's top people. But one published estimate was that the Queen's armed bodyguard is to be doubled. At present, the monarch and each meniber of the Royal Family have at least one such guard. Heath Douglas-Home and Home Secretary Reginald Meudling are given the same degree of protection. As the story of the two Mont- real kidnappings continued to receive play in Britain's pi-ess and broadcast news bulletins, The Times devoted its main edi- torial to a discussion of what it calls "dangerous days for Can ada." The Times says the kidnap- ping of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporie altered the situ- ation produced earlier by the abduction of British envoy .James (Jasper) Cross. Whatever Prime Minister Trudeau does now "will have political implications for his ef- Gen de Gaulle Still Keen, Healthy PARIS (AP) Recent vis- itors to the home of Charles de Gaulle report the 79 year old former president of France is in fine health, relaxed, an atten- tive host, and .mentally vigor- ous. Four visitors to the general's home on the outskirts of the'lit- tle village of Colombey les- Deux-Eglises in eastern France were interviewed on a r a d i o program: His brother in law, Jacques Vendroux, said de Gaulle leads a more active life than most retired men of lu's age, and that his knowledge of men and events and his analytical spirit are as brisk as ever. "I had the impression of a man perhaps even more alert physically than in the last months of his presidency, and also of a man who expressed himself with more Vendroux reported. Since he quit the presidency in April, 1969, when his referen- dum on regional reform was de- feated, de Gaulle has concen- trated on writing his memoirs. The first volume came out re- cently, sold copies in three days, and is into a second edition of Former social affairs minister Jean Marcel Jeanneney spoke of the great affection de Gaulle showed for his children and [randchildren, "who speak to lim in an affectionate but very deferential tone." Journalist Michel Droit, who often interviewed the general on television during the years in office, said de Gaulle .showed his manuscript to his grandchil- dren, as well as his wife and children, and "has great confi- dence in the grandchildrens' judgments, and notably in that of his grandson, Charles de Gaulle, Be Gaulle's editor. Marcel Jullian, spoke of the change in atmosphere between dinners at de Gaulle's home in Colombey and' those in Elysee Palace in Paris. i Guests at Elysee had the feel- ing that the general held the dinners "because it had to be he said. At Colombey, "everything is simple and one feels marvellously at ease." forts to build a unified bicul- tural the paper says. "If he sticks to the terms al- ready laid down for Mr. Cross's release and if the kidnappers refuse, them for their more valu- able prisoner, Mr. Trudeau puts at risk a life of direct political significance in The Times continues. "But if Mr. Laporte were murdered, many in Quebec could be persuaded, disas- trously, that Ottawa had shown more regard for political doc- trine than humanity when a French-Canadian life was at stake." On the other hand, if the pro- posed mediation in the kidnap- ping case materializes and the goverrment makes more.. con- cessions to the Front de Libera- tion du Quebec after their sei- zure of a government minister, Trudeau "will face a wave of criticism from an already criti- cal Western says The Times. Western Canada "feels that he is pandering to Quebec sepa- ratism and feeding rather than dousing the the British paper remarks.
