The signing Aug. i) of a 20- car Indo-SovieL treaty of "peace, friendslup and co-op- oration'1 has raised doubts in New Delhi and oilier world capitals about I he validity of Jndia's claims that it sull re- mains non-aligned to any major power in the world. The treaty was a marked Pakistan or China, and perhaps cut off arms supplies lo Pakistan altogether in view of India's position Lhat Paki- stan and China are its only two real enemies. STOP U.S. ARMS? Observers in Xcw Delhi be- lieve that Ihe Soviet Union, at some future dale, could also insist lhat India receive no arms from Ihe United Slates by ukinff the position lhal the U.S. military power is con- j slanlJy directed at it. The treaty will most defi- nitely postpone New Delhi's normalization o F relations with that uas being talked about in India this also have (he effect of cooling off diplo- matic relations bo. i Now .Delhi and Washington, despite American economic aid to India so far of billion. It could also lead to a corre- sponding improvement of re- lations between the US. and Pakistan. The treaty was signed at a lime when internal pressures were building up on Mrs. Gan- dhi to take a more aggressive pride hurt that the U.S. had laken Pakistan inlo confi- dence the issue, bul the dc-pariurr fmm India's for-! approach I o a r d Pakistan and he prepared In even go In In blmi-glr Bp.ncly iidnitt given East Fak> rjpi pel I lip fi.ixl_ limp thai cnnnlry iiii.o at! ap re en icnt which ibstinct military overtones. Besides covering t.he gamut of cultural, eco- nomic, scientific and technol- ogical co-operation, the treaty stipulates that the two coun- tries "shall not enter inlo or narticipate in any military al- liances directed againsl the other parly'1 and "shall ah- slain Irom providing any as- sistance to any third party lhat engages in armed conflict with the other Tn the even I of on attack on either of the two countries, tne treaty says, they "shall immediately enter into mu- lual consultations in order to remove such threat mid lo take appropriate effective measures to ensure peace and security of their countries." This means (hat the Sonet Union will come to India's de- fence in the event of a war Indian government came to the conclusion, whether lightly or wrongly, that the administration, in its Jong-lcnn pursuit of a viable balance in Asia, had little or no use for India. PAKISTAN HAS FRIENDS Mrs. Gandhi also could not ignore the fact that President Yahya had won public en- dorsement of bis East-Paki- stani policy from Chou en Lai, and that the largest .Moslem country in the world had the support of al- most all the Arab countries d e s p i I e India's continuous support of Ihe Arab cause against Israel. Mrs. Gandhi's increasing number of critics at home charged that her moderate stand on Bangla Desh, cou- pled with India's long-sland- ing policy of non-alignment had left the country alone in the world during the height of a crisis. They argued Uiat non-align- ment, which served India well for n number of years by win- ning her foreign aid from rx'lh i lie Western and Eastern bloc of developed nations and also an independent stature in Afro Asian countries, had be- come obsolete and had led India slowly into isolation. They said that the very premise on which non-align- ment was based the doctrine of defence by by ils founder, former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, came crashing down when China brushed aside long- standing Indo-Chinese friend- It's No. 157 In a total of 600 Is landing, first-day buys in EATON'S Thurs., Sept. 30 to Sat., Oct. 1 tool" lor oil 600 First-flay offfnnq. in (lie Ift-prfrj.?

Observers in New Delhi say the U.S., in its preoccupation with China, chose lo ignore New Delhi at a time when Mrs. Gandhi was looking for an endorsement of her moder- ate policy on the Ess I Paki- stan by a major power. Indian anger against Wash- I snip and Attacked Jndja jn ington increased hen v ord got out that President Nixon had personally endorsed the offifial U.S. policy of not con- demning Pakistani President Yahya Khan for his handling of the East Pakistan situation. Relalions between India and the U.S. reached a new low when it was revealed in early August, contrary to an official Washington statement in July, that American arms were still being shipped to Pakistan. Then came Henry Kissin- j gcr's historic secret trip to j Peking. Not only was Indian j Surcharge Kf lino- hope seen OTTAWA (CP) Republican Senator Jacob Javils of New York offered liope Friday lhal contlilions for lifting the recent U.S. import surcharge can be realized before the end of the ytar. Talking to reporters following a meeting of the political com- mittee of the IS7orlh Allanlic As- sembly, Senator JaviLs also said there is Ihe "greatest under- sL-nding" in Washington of Can- ada's economic needs. The U.S. had no intention of forcing Canada inio a position it. can export only raw malerials, not manufactured goods, to the market. Prime Minister Trudcau, in a television interview Thursday niphl, said that any such nl- i tempi by the Americans would lead to a fiir.damcnlnl reassess- menl of Canadian-U S. icla- tions.

Nehru died in 1965 but suc- c e s s i v c governments dis- played an almost sentimental attachment to ihe idealistic principles of non-alignment. It could also have been the re- sult of the fact that Prime Ministers Shaslri and Mrs. Gandhi were heading shaky governments unable to imple- ment any major foreign policy revisions. HAS POPULAR SUPPORT Mi's. Gandhi's landslide vic- tory at the polk last year, the pressures on the Indian gov- ernment arising out of the East Pakistan situation, In- dian anger against the U.S. and the increasing discontent with non-alignment itself com- bined to provide the impetus for the Indian prime minister, who is more pro-U.S.S.R. than her father was, lo turn to Moscow. She sent a special envoy tn the Soviet Union Aug. 2, and five days later Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko was in New Delhi to sign the treaty within two days of his arrival. The treaty not only Mrs. Gandhi instant support from tlic by and large, has displayed an anti-U.S. and pro-Soviet senli- mcntahty over Ihe also helped her to allay inter- nal pressures to recognize the Bangla Dcsh cxilc and avoid a further in- crease in tensions v-ith Paki- stan. Rut for il.5 military slipul.v lions. the trealy has only made official the special friendship lhat India and (he Soviet Union have enjoyed for some years. It marks a dramatic, and what may prove Lo be n his- toric, turn in India's relations wilh Ihe Soviet Union which have come a long way since I33I when Kt.-ilin followed a policy of Itilal indifference, pven hostility towards New Delhi and when Radio Mos- cow constantly used to refer lo Nehru as an "Anglo-Ameri- can stooge" and an "Ameri- can lioy." And amid nil these rapid de- velopments of Ihe last three months, the United Slales may hai'o lost tlic friendship and gmxl will of Iho second most populous nation on carl.h and the world's largest de- least for some years lo conic. "Wilh plenty o[ cheap heroin available in Vietnam, Ihe sen'- iccmcn have no trouble support- ing their habit." FORCED TO STEAL, But when they relumed lo Ihe U.S., most would have lo sleal to pay for it. Mr. Podell said the choice so- ciety faces is "whether we want on addicl lo receive his heroin from the underworld, which is continually encouraging him to pursue his addiction, or from a narcotic centre which is encour- aging him to break bis habit." 1 He proposed a consortium of I NATO countries to buy up as much of the world's supply of heroin as possible at market prices. This consortium would offer subsidies lo poppy growers in different lands to grow wheat or other crops at comparable prices. THREAT TO EUROPE Mr. R o d i n o 's report said drugs are presenting an increas- ing danger for European armed forces as well as American. "For example, an increased number of drug users have been noted in the German army dur- ing the course of last year." It did not mention the Cana- dian forces, though Defence Minister Macdonald lias admit- ted lhat the problem exists here too. "It is quite clear that greater drug abuse by young men, even at the school age, automatically influences the behavior of future servicemen in this said the rcoort. "Thus, all measures under- taken to save the health of ado- lescents also serve to enhance Ihe effectiveness of die allied forces." While the number of heroin addicts in the U.S. is officially eslimated at some Ibe real number may be closer to 600.000, the report suggested. In the mimhcr of her- oin addicts is placed officially at around Bul unofficial estimates have placed it as high as or even Woman arrested iu DETROIT (API A woman vho police say wanted to com-1 mandeer a jetliner and use it to j lelp two jailed Black Panthers j lee the United States was ar- rested today at Metropolitan Airport.
