South'. Leading Beauty School" India Continues Most Baffling Political Problem 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 not official. Consequently the Mohandas K. Gandhi affair has the U. S. capital guessing. 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 away with?" 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,- 600. 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 tional agriculture. 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. I . ... ... . . (Central Press) i Wy2 1?? Mi mm size. 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 wide open. Gandhi calls his outfit the All India Congress. 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 apostle. The truth is that pacifists are meaner fightafs than anybody else, when once they take the warpath. "Second Messiah" 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.

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 ed Nations. I suppose he is a blessing to the Axis. He probably doesn't intend to be, to the latter, but obviously that's what he is. It's easy to travel down hill, but it's probably better to stand still.

Lenoir Gwyn, sup ervisor of cattle at Caledonia Pris on farm and h'd of cattle pur chasing for the State Highway and Public Works Commission, has an nounced the second sale of Here ford cattle will be held at Caledonia farm Saturday, September 12. Gwyn said there would be four car loads of cattle, or approximate ly 150 head, which would include fine bulls, breeding heifers,, feeder calves and feeder steera. First sale held on August 39 brought $4,611.88 for 76 cattle. This group was composed of heif ers, feeder calves and feeder steers. Gwyn said the September 12 sale would be the second in a series of 12 sales to be held under the Re volving Fund operation jointly by the State Highway Commission and the State Department of Agriculture. The sales are conducted by Gwyn, who pools his talents between the State Highway Commission and the Department of Agriculture, and Paul Fletcher of the Markets Di vision. AH cattle are purchased in western North Carolina and re sold at Caledonia at the same price plus shipping and handlingtexpense, which still gives the eastern JNortn Carolinians a chance to buy cattle cheaper than they would normally if they had to pay for smaller in dividual shipments. Then too, the eastern state cattle raisers are given the advantage oi having trained experts select the cattle for them. Counties represented in the first sale were Wilson. Halifax, Edge combe. Pitt. Camden, and Curri tuck. . Gwyn, accompanied by prison director Oscar Pitts, will attend cattle sales at Clyde and Asheville September 3 - 4, at which time more stock will be bought for fu ture sales.
