Government labor officials produce no official estimates, and refuse to discuss unemploy- ment with reporters. An influential officer of the j textile mill owners1 association said: "If the situation continues like this for six months, there wll be an explosion." Similar views are expressed by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, chair- man of the Pakistan People's party, which attracted most of!

ARMY TIGHTENS UP The toughened army stand after it arrested Sheik Mujibur Rahman and outlawed his East Pakistani-based Awami League in March has checked labor un- rest.

I Economists here estimate the textile industry has managed to regain the equivalent of 512 mil- lion of a annual mar- ket in the East by stepping up exports to Persian Gulf and Middle East countries. But be- cause the government subsi- dizes exports with bonuses to encourage trade which earns hard currencies, the govern- ment bears some of the cost of a comeback.

The IRA made no immediate comment but its leaders have been pushing hard for world at- tention and support, particu- larly in the U.S. with its large Irish Catholic population.
