BEAR RIVER VALLEY LEADER Pretender MAHONEY Fights for Afghan Throne Tension KARACHI. INDIA between Afghanistan and Pak istan is tightening as a claim ant to the Afghan throne continues his attempts to raise an army In the troubled tribal area between the two semi- hostile Moslem nations, The claimant is Amin Jan, whose brother, Amanullah, vacated the throne In 1929 and now lives in Italy. Amin Jan wants to replace the present king, Zahir Shah, and figures an army might help. Amin Jan is German-educate- d and has an English wife. He was' arrested in Peshawar following his brother's abdication and was deported by the British to Rangoon. Later he was transferred to the Allahabad Jails. He was released In 1948 and allowed to proceed to Pakistan. He already had made one start on an expedition to Kabul Afghanistan's capital. But on reaching the border he found the number of irregulars Mahsud tribesmen had dwindled to 30, Amin Jan called the expedition off. The major result was to stir up a new dispute between Pakistan and Afghanistan, already arguing over control of the tribal belt stretching along the frontier. Kabul radio complained that Pakistan was backing Amin Jan. Pakistan replied that it had warned the Afghans about his activities and urged tribesmen not to join him. Observers here, declare that however, Pakistan would be pleased to see Amin on the throne.
