FITCH NBA Service Special Correspondent CHUNGKING, China — 1 am the first American lucky enough to see the new Dalai Lama, God-King" of Tibet To millions of followers, he is the reincarnation of the soul of Nga- Vrang Lopsang Toupen Gyatso, 13th Dalai Lama, who died in 1933. The weird search of more than five years for the late Dalai Lama's successor has ended; the new ruler of Lamaism, a form of Buddhism, has been chosen. I saw him at the Kum- bura Lamasery in northwest China, on his journey to Lhasa, his capital. It happened while we were visiting this temple of the faith, next in importance to that at Lhasa, Our attention was attracted by a sudden rush of people toward a particular spot. A procession was coming our way. It was headed by a lama, in full regalia, carrying in his arms a young boy of no more than five or six. As" he approached, people prostrat- ed'themselves before him. Some pushed forward to touch the clothes of the child. Suddenly it dawned on me that this must be the new Dalai Lama en route to Lhasa, where he will be introduced into the mysteries of the religion. I reached in my pocket for a film. Here was the chance of a lifetime! ' I made one shot, hastily started to turn the film for another. The 'young Dalai Lama was within 10 feet of me. Then I discovered that I had, in my excitemejnt, loaded the camera with exposed film. What a time for such a mistake. Boots Don't Fit New Dalai Lama Luckily, however, my Chinese colleague was on the spot with his camera, too. The procession hurriedly entered two of the temple buildings, where brief rites were observed, and then proceeded to the courtyard. Here a gorgeous palanquin—or mule litter- all in yellow brocaded satin, awaited. The boy, whose large boots had to be held on while he was carried, was placed in the palanquin. His weeping mother and elder brother climbed into two other litters behind him. Outriders in richly-colored silks dashed up. Then the procession was off on its perilous 1200-mile trek over the Tibetan plateau and across the Himalaya mountains to Lhasa—a trip that will take at least two full months to complete. The lad was handsome, intelligent looking. He must now relinquish all his family connections. His life will be anything but safe. No wonder his mother wept as the colorful procession started on the long journey to Lhasa. .Until he attains his 'majority at 18 four abbots will act as ruling regents. It is this council of regents which of one Dalai Lama and the choice of another. The last Dalai Lama is said to have been one of the few to have reached This exclusive photograph shows cavalcade ready ui carry Dalai Lama to Lhasa, his capital Mounted riders escort mule litters, shown by arrows, which carry ruler and his family. The eight "chorten," or monuments, right, have been erected in memory of famous lamas. maturity. Soon after his ascension in 1893, No. 13 got rid of his regents and his advisors. A Dalai Lama does not die— after 18 that is. He departs earthly existence. He is supposed to name the infant into which his soul is transferred or to conjure up the likeness of his successor in the sacred lake near Lhasa, the forbidden city. Unfortunately, No. 13 failed to do this. New Lama Bom as Predecessor Died Then began a hunt among unnumbered millions of Tibetans for a child born on the precise moment the late Dalai Lama left 'this life, an infant which would show unmistakable signs of divinity. The boy we saw, whose home town is reportedly in Kakonor, now called Chinghai province, will spend his days in a room atop the Potala, his fortress palace in Lhasa. He will be put through a rigorous program of education by the Panchen Lama. Here, in Chungking, a member of the Tibetan Commission tells me that the lad has to face still another stiff test of his divinity, but we were assured in Kum- bum and Sining that this incumbent was the final choice. The fact that the procession was already starting for Lhasa would be confirmation of this fact. It is said that many of the lamas believe that the 13th Dalai Lama can never be reincarnated physically. They decry the Ite ruler's modern policies which led to British pene- of Tibet, introduced such thing as a hydro-electric plant and telephone service at the castle. The Kumbum Lamasery, the lam- scry of "ten thousand images," where we saw the strange event, must be enormously wealthy. The entire roof of the cfentral edific is overlaid with pure gold, reputedly an eight of an inch thick. The 60- foot image of Tsong K'aba. Tibetan hero-reformer of the 15th century, which stands in the temple. is also gold-covered. Yellow, of course is the faith's favorite color. Kumbum is , supposed to have 4000 lamas in residence, nearly twice the number at the great lamasery of Wu- Tong-Cho in Inner Mongolia, which I visited some years ago. This is the first picture ever taken of the new Dalai Lama—peasant lad who will be spiritual leader of millions. 1 AVcarinjr boots so larffc thai Ilicy have (o be held in place, young Dalai Lama is carrier! to temple oi Kumbum Lamasery—another "first" piclurc. • RAISING A FAMILY Preach Responsibility to Child 'Vandal' "Qui/. fur Parcnls," first of six articles. him to bed without his The samp goes over and the silk ihade is torn.

MMMH Test your knowledge or correct social usage by answering the following questioas, then checking against the authoritative answers below: 1. I.s it bad manners to whisper in church? 2. Should a woman attend church bare-headed? 3. Should you look around during the service and try to catch the eyes of your friends? 4. If you are attending a church who.se service is not familiar to you, should you rise when everyone rises? 5. If it is not the custom to kneel in your church, is it necessary for you to kneel when you are visiting another church? Whal would you do if— .Someone in your group makes a .-lighting remark about a religious .'-cct. and you know that one of the fjc-ii-ons present belongs to that faith. Would you— la i Say. "I guess you didn't know that John belongs to that church?" <.b> Say .something like, "Religion is a poor thing to discuss—for the only religion any of us can pretend to understand is our own," and then change Ihe subject? as hers? C. Send supper? D. Call him awkmarcl and then box his ears? The second answer (B) i.s right, although swift retibution in some cases is not amiss. There are times when deliberate carelessness or disobedience needs shocking to attention. For the most part, acident.s to children or caused bf them, are results of impetuousness, and acting before thinking. The sober second thoufht i.s not common with many younysters. Caution is lackiny in younf children as a uile. We should not cruize too greatly the spontaneity of yeiuth. We depend on this trail larpely for development. In this case, perhaps Jimmy has been warned over and over that he- must not play roubhly in the house. He knows, too, that this room holds his mother's most cherished opssu-.ss- ions. Yet he chased Tom, threw out a loot to trip him, and over went Tom and the lamp together. If it is a first offense, then a sober talking to is wise. Jimmy will digest an explanation of how expensive ornaments arc. He will listen when we tell him that if he goes on destroying things, he will soon lose pride in his nice home.
