HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday, February 26, 19420 I ia Wants Promise Wonts Independence From Britain in Near Future Choicest plum on Britain's or any,/Body else's colonial tree is India, rich, lush land of 389,000,000 humans or as- ; sorted races and religions. j.j t *, Japan is reaching hard for that plum. j. n Already she has pushed her fist into Burma, gateway to India. '' < Meanwhile India argues, flounders. * The Moslem minority is suspicious of the Hindu majority, wants separate provinces for Moslems. Pacifists 1 of the Gandhi variety have refused to go along with the majority of the Hindus' Congress party. The Congress would like to take a vigorous stand '»at the side of the United Nations if only Britain would promise India her \ independence. That majority recently removed Gandhi as its leader and chose in his place dazzlingly handsome, deeply in' telligent Jawaharlal Nehru. i For three decades Nehru has been ' demanding a concrete promise of independence from Britain . i He has gotten promises, but all have contained what he considered to ' be catch clauses. Now he must de- h cide whether to go ahead and join in the war on the Axis, with or without a promise. His good friend. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek flew all the way from Chunkging, China, to try to , persuade him, Gandhi and other In;, dian leaders to forget their quarrel ^ "with Britain temporarily and join the f. fighting. •j During World War I India sent a " njilhon troops to help Britain. In re- Y^ turn, Britain offered vague promises ii>,,of independence afterward. The prom|i« tse was never fully kept. 'Thus the "* chariness of Indians today. *u Britons have always feared Nehru >more than the aging Gandhi. His ideas for dealing with them have been much more uncompromising. '> Nehru, in his youth, was a friend of Britain. His father, fabuously rich v !lndian, hired a British tutor for Jaw- aharlal.

Converted His Father He gave his wealth to Gandhi's ationalist movement, began sleeping n mud huts. His father was horri- ied, but soon was converted by Jaw- harlal and both were sleeping on ne dirt floors of Indian jails. Jawaharlal landed in jail so often hat Gandhi commented: "Believe me, if Jawaharlal is not in ail today, it is not because he is fraid of it. He is quite capable of mounting the gallows with a smile on lis lips." By 1935 Nehru and Gandhi working ogether, had won for the Indians a :onstitution providing for provincial autonomy. Indian legislators con- inced hard-boiled American newsmen of their ability at governing hemselves locally. Then came the war. India found lerself in it without even being consulted. Restrictions were placed on self-government. Many of India's industries were turned to war production and many thousands of Indians were recruited to serve in North Africa and Malaya and Iran. But the effort was far from all out. Nehru made an anti-war speech in 1940, was sentenced to four years ol rigorous imprisonment. The 53-year- old Nehru was not released until two months ago. Soon after he was freed, the congress elected him as its leader. Stop, Thief!

Twenty thousand evacuees from London and the surrounding cities, a smaller number of refugee scholars from Europe, plus a constant stream of soldiers and airmen have so changed the face of Oxford that the University no longer dominates the town. Students and professors are in the minority now and when groups of black-gowned young men and women )edal down High Street on their bi- :ycles today, they cause scarcely a •ipple among the civilians who crowd iidewalks, cafes and theaters. Accommodations are difficult to get, >riccs are high arid many of the mart London West End shops have 'ollowed their customers to this place )y establishing small shops which lave better looking clothes on display than you'll find in London. There is no longer the leisurcli- ness in the colleges of the University which American students remember. Occasionally a few students will stand and watch a cricket or rug- ay match, but you no longer see them walking slowly in great numbers over "Jhrist Church Meadows, or along Addison's Walk at Magdalen or in the gardens of Trinity and St. John's. Eve-ry Hour Counts Now For every hour now counts will) most Oxford undergraduates. The Government has permitted them, if in the midst of a degree, to stay on and take the University's new shortened wartime degree course. But at the same time they are in training as officers. A typical undergraduate week today consists of Officers' Training two days with an essay written for each session, two days of study and lei lures, firewatching duty on a roUitn basis two night, recreation one afternoon with time out during a Tuesday or Wednesday evening for a conceit or theater in town. Happy Hedy Warns Farmers Against Selling Their Tools Implements Will Be Hard to Get During War Period Oliver L. Adams, county agent, warned Hempstead county farmers to- daj^ against selling usuablc farm machines and parts to junk dealers for scrap metal. Every day, he said, junk dealers arc buying some machines or cast parts of farm machinery that still have many hours of service in them. Every effort should be made to avoid selling usuablc machines, the county agent said, because of the uncertainty of getting new machines to replace them. Regarding the withholding of usua- blc parts, the county agent said that they might be just the parts that would be needed to keep a similar piece of equipment in operation. Persons who retain their usable machines and parts will not only save money, but will relieve the machinery industry from the job of remaking a part that the farmer once owned. "So," the county agent said, "scrap (lie scraps, but save the usable machines an dparts."

Langs- Prizes of War Abound In Netherlands Indies T^HE Japanese drive into the •*• Netherlands East Indies is aimed at the richest prizes of war. Rubber, oil, copper, tin and quinine abound in the rich Dutch possessions. The stamp above, issued in 1933, shows a native scene, a farmer and oxen. Farmer-settlers in the islands are for the most part "tanis," independent farmers as distinguished from those who make a Jiving as hired laborers. There are about 5000 islands in the archipelago. Borneo, New Guinea, .'Sumatra, Java and Celebes are tne largest with spheres of influence in the hands of the Dutch anrf English. Before the outbreak cf hostilities Japan enjoyed a $5(',000,000 trade with the Indies. Oil, the black, flowing gold which is vital currency in either war or peace, is a leading export of the islands. Some 60,000,000 barrels of crude petroleum were produced last year to rank the Indies fifth among the world producers of oil. The fate of the Indies is of vital concern to U. S. for 40 per cent 3f the- rubber and 25 per cent of the tin consumed in the United States come from the Netherlands' F.u- Bast possession. r CNNC r .. + IN o, Siwinfis you'd never expect to find in these limes!
