A Proposal for Resolving Conflicts J B M Conflicts between different organs of the State have perhaps never been so open in this country as they are today.

Transplanting the Ombudsman

December 17, 1966 The Left C P I may well be wrong in adopting the present extreme tactics. Militancy is a contagious disease. If the non-Left-CPI leftists are now assuming militant attitudes or postures, these may have been forced upon them by the Left CPI.

If they have increased strength in the next legislature, BOOK REVIEWS they will say it shows how popular they are. If they experience poor showing at the polls, they will say it only shows what a sham these so-called free elections are.
