And Unite in Policies

NEW DELHI, May 4.—Indian
Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru
today urged a change in the “poi
sonous atmosphere” between India
and Pakistan. He said the two
countries should have common
foreign and defense policies.
Mr. Nehru told a joint meeting
of Indian and Pakistani newspa
per editors that the two neighbors,
by following a common policy, can
play a large part in Asian and
eWorld affairs.
India and Pakistan, he said, "in
a hundred ways are so closely con
nected that this is the natural, in
evitable course for them to follow.”

He added this was necessaryj

He urged that fear and suspi
cion be removed from the minds
of the Hindu and Moslem minori
ties, whose communal clashes
along each country’s borders have
grown into threats of war.
This religious conflict, which
was fanned into an open flame
when the two' countries gained
their independence from the 300
year British rule, “only tended to

Truman’s invitation, was asked
-about his plans for a trip to Rus

Democratic Path Chosen.
Later, the Prime Minister told
Congress that “No threat or per
suasion, no material peril or ideo
logical allurement can deflect us
from the path we have chosen.”
That path, he said, is based on
.“the principles ‘.Pt democracy,
freedom,’ eqaulity! tolerance and
social justice as enunciated by
Islam. ... It believes in the
right of all men and in the right
of each individual to enjoy the
, fruit of his or her effort, enter

The Prime Minister urged the
“leaders 'of world opinion will
pursue the path of understanding
and will use their wisdom and
power to dispel and not to en
„ hance the fears of an apprehensive
~ world.”
"Our people.” he said, “are
deeply distressed at the thought
that world-wide destruction might
overtake, not only the fuller life
to which they aspire but the entire
civilization with all its magnificent
achievements and illimitable op-i
portunities for good.”
Speaks at Press Club.
Prom the Capitol, the Prime
Minister drove to the National
Press Club, where he spoke on
Pakistan’s foreign policy. In the
course of the talk, the name of
Russia was not mentioned once.
As an Asiatic country that has
only recently achieved independ
ence, he said, Pakistan has “the
greatest sympathy for and under-:
standing of the resurgent na
tionalism” in the countries of
Southeast Asia.
“The belief is growing in our
minds,” he continued, "that peace
and stability in Asia are essential
for peace and stability in the
world. We regard with great
anxiety any disruptive movement
(nywhere in Asia which might
ttidanger this stability.
“It Is with these objectives in
mind that we have established
friendly relations with the govern
ment of the Indonesian Republic

government in Burma.”

Two Identify Gunman
As Warring Robber
A thrice - convicted gunman
under arrest in New York has
been “positively identified” by two
witnesses in the $24,000 robbery
of Emmitt Warring, Police Chief
Robert J. Barrett has announced.
Local police will lodge retainers
against Arthur Pelkisson, 38, who
is being held in New York on an
other robbery charge, and may be
imprisoned for life there if con
victed again, police said.
The identification was made in
the Bronx County court yester
day by Warring’s brother-in-law,
William Cady, and a maid, Louise
Enos, who previously had been
shown Pelkisson’s picture.
The two had been tied up by
three gunmen who invaded the
Washington gambler’s home in the
3900 block of Macomb street N.W.
last January, waited for Warring
and forced him to open his safe.
The other two suspects also
have been identified — Sidney
Stromberg, being held in Potts
ville. Pa., in a gang killing, and
Malcolm Epstein, under arrest in
Pittsburgh for a series of robberies.
Police were doubtful today
whether any of the three suspects
could be brought here for trial be
cause of prior charges lodged
against them in other jurisdic
Begum Discourses on Love And Life in Far-Off Pakistan
The wile of the Prime Minister
of Pakistan discussed marriage
and life in Pakistan with 30
American women today.
Begum Liaquat Ali told a li
brary full of newspaperwomen in
Prospect house:
“For me it was a love marriage,
although marriages are arranged
in my country. There is a lot to
be said for this system because
I’ve seen so many cases of love
! marriages go bust."
The slight, olive-skinned Begum
I (which is a courtesy title of aris
tocracy) said that polygamy is
allowed—but rare—in Pakistan.
“You see," she explained, “a
man can't marry more than one
woman unless he is fair and just
to all wives. It thus boils down
to his being able to keep only
j one. And really, today a man can
i afford only one wife.
I “I know only one wife is allowed
in the West—but look at the
1 things that go on."
Met Husband During Speech.
The Begum said she met her
husband w'hile he was making
“one of his famous speeches" in
the assembly.
“That got me." she chuckled,
“you know how college girls are.”
Pakistan women differ from
their Western sisters in many
ways, she said. For instance, they
don’t wear skirts: rather, they
affect “gararas” or divided pants.
The Begum stood up and ex
plained that she was wearing 14
yards of flimsy lime silk chiffon.
This included the trousers, a
“kurte” (tunic) and a “dupatta"
The women of Pakistan left the
seclusion of their homes only
after partition 2’2 years ago when
the country was flooded with 7
million refugees. The Begum co- :
ordinated women's activities with
the formation of the Pakistan
Women's Voluntary Service.
