pESSEE SCHOOL OF
South'. Leading Beauty
By CHARLES P. STEWART
(Central Press Columnist)
WASHINGTON India is more
of a mystery to official Washing,
ton than China or Japan. We're
very well acquainted and friendly
with quite a few prominent Chi
nese and at least think 'we under
stand their people's temperament
and mentality more or less.
We like them, too, as of the
present writing, perhaps even bet
ter than we do the Russians. The
Chinese we assess as sure enough
democrats. The Japanese we have
ceased to like, if ever we did have
any liking for them. They are
rated as treacherous double-cross-ers.
On them we have our fingers
crossed but they do not puzzle us,
not a bit!
About all we surmise concerning
India, however, is what Rudyard
Kipling reported to us more than
a generation ago and his stuff was
Consequently the Mohandas K.
Gandhi affair has the U. S. capital
It is anti-Gandhi, of course, but
it's uncertain whether Mohandas
is his first name or a mistake for
"mahatma." Most of us have no
notion what "K" stands for. We're
unreliable on the spelling of ''Gand
hi" often we spell it "Ghandi."
The essential question is:
"How much can Gandhi get
Gandhi A Pacifist
The old guy is a pacifist of the
most pronounced type; that has
been widely advertised. Yet he has
announced that India will be "all
out" for the United Nations if the
British grant it immediate inde
pendence. Apparently John Bull is
slightly doubtful about it, for,
high school he was active in Fu
ture Farmers and school activi
ties. He is past president of his
local chapter, an American Farm
er, was outstanding Future Farm
er in 1940 and was awarded a trip
to Kansas City.
His supervised practice work
has been of the highest type, start
ing with four projects in 1937-88,
with a return of $195, and his
program this year was completed
with 21 projects amounting to $2,
000. His total project income for
the five years has been above $3,-
One of the twenty-one projects
this year consisted of 200 capons.
In addition to his farm supervised
practice work young Arrington has
made a record as a public speaker,
having won second place in the
state contest for the past two
years. He is also past president
of the student body in the local
high school and was valedictorian
of his class of 1942.
He has represented the school
and the local chapter of FFA on
numerous occasions in varied capa
cities. He was recently awarded
a scholarship to State College by
Sears Roebuck and Company. He
will enter State College this fall
where he will begin a course to
prepare himself for teaching voca
U. S. Destroyer Sinks U-Boat in Atlantic
OSeUl U. S. Cout Oird Fhota
Geysers of water are shown shooting into the ozone as this U. S. destroyer tows her depth charges. After
dropping the charges, oil slicks and bubbles (arrows) appeared, indicating that a lurking enemy sub had
been destroyed. The sub had been first sighted by a Coast Guard plane, which dropped its depth charges
and then called for assistance. The destroyer rushed to the scene of action, somewhere off the Atlantic
coast, and took over. Part of the Coast Guard plane is visible at the upper left of the photo.

while he promises post-war inde
pendence, he balks on it at present.
Maybe one reason for this re
luctance is a British apprehension
that independence would split India
Gandhi calls his outfit the All
It is a bunch that he controls
completely, but how "all" is it, rel
ative to total India?
Perhaps it is in a majority, but
India has quite a mixed population.
Theoretically Gandhi's crowd are
unmitigated pacifists. Yet there
are a lot of other aggregations
that are as scrappy as can be.
England has had trouble with them
in past uprisings and knows the
story fully, historically.
' Likewise there is the Indian
Moslem League, running up into
the 80 millions solidly anti-Axis.
And, finally, Gandhi belatedly
announced that his own crowd will
fight like fury for the democracies
if Britain will accord independence
to it with no further argument.
It was a funny pledge to say
the least from such an anti-war
The truth is that pacifists are
meaner fightafs than anybody else,
when once they take the warpath.
A few years ago I heard Gandhi
mentioned, by as consequential in
dividuals as congressmen (I could
name some of them) as a possibil
ity as a ''second Messiah". But all
that is now in the past.
The trouble with the old fellow
in that he has graduated out of
spirituality into politics.
Washington is adequately post
ed on politics but it is stumped by
India's quality of them. Parlia
ment Hill in London may have an
inkling of them, but not Capital
Hill. It is a new kind of politics

for this country.
The point is that about half of
India is pro-United Nations. About
half of the remainder is pacifistic.
And approximately half of what's
left is all split up.
And, as to Gandhi, he tells his
story three or four ways.
Washington can't figure which
is which. It doesn't know about
the peculiarities of India,
Internationally Gandhi is a pest
That is, he is a pest to the Unit

blessing to the Axis. He probably
doesn't intend to be, to the latter,
but obviously that's what he is.
