By .MILTON BRONNER i NKA Service-Stuff Correspondent > LONDON, Ens.—He lias no place to lay bis head save the simple hill which he calls home. He has no clothes save a loin-cloth and a cloak of the simplest rough home-spun material. Hu might have had riches, but hi.s only possessions are a .spinning wheel and a simple bowl which contains his meal of cooked rice. He Is nothing to look at—a brown -sprite of a man, who has lost all hi.s teeth and rarely wears his dentures. On his nose is perched a pair of .steel- rimmed specs. He holds no. office, but he has millions of followers. Hi.s voice is weak and he speaks in monotones, but thousands listen to him with rapt attention. Hi.s demeanor is modest, even humblci but, even proud British Viceroys of India talk long hour:; with him. discussing the present and future of India. .Sees End Approaching For he is Mohandas Koramchand Gandhi, more familiarly known a.s Mahatma Gandhi, who enters the seventieth year of his life this month. And this (rail man has predicted that he will not live to sec many more birthdays. His words were: "My days arc numbered. I um unlikely to live longer than a year," He has already lived longer than most Hindus, despite the fact that he barely feeds hi.s body, despite the hardships of many jail sentences inflicted upon IIHII by the British, de- spile many lout;, hard fasts that he hat, i;7iposed upon himself, When he passes off this earthly scene, India is not apt ever to see his like again. Son of a minor government official, and horn at I'orbandar October 2, 1809, he went to London, studied law and was called to the bar. He went professionally to South Africa in 1893, and while there soon found his life work. South Africa had immigration laws which tended to restrict Indians from entering the country. They suffered from other restrictions likewise. He was fined and imprisoned for hi.s work there. He has been fined and imprisoned often for hi.s work in India. For in his home country he was one of the proponents of home rule for India. He was one of the lending figures in tlic All India Congress of natives. He led a boycott of English goods and institutions. In 1922 he was arrested and sent to Student Parade to Precede Leopard, Bobcat Grid Game Opening Kickoff Is Set for 8 o'Clock at Mammons' Stadium HARD BATTLE SEEN Homer M. Adkins, Cpllec- 'tor of InternalRevenue, Involved WASHINGTON —(/Pv- The Senate Campaign Expenditures Committee disagreed Thursday with the statement of Secretary Morgcnthau that charges of political activity by federal employes in Arkansas "were without basis" and said it would take the case to the Senate, In the recent Democratic primary Representative McClcllcin, opponent of Senator Caraway for the Democratic .senatorial nomination, charged that Homer M. Adkins, collector of internal revenue, and other federal officers in the state were unduly active politically. Teams Are About Equally Matched—Large Crowd Is Expected The Hnjv High School hand and pep .squad will stago a parade and pop ral- j ly in downtown Hope at G:45 p. m. Friday as a prelude to the Hopc-De- Quoen football game at 8 o'clock which promises (o be a hard faugh I battle. The Ir.ind will assemble at First Baptist church and from that point will proceed through the business section. The parade and student pep rally will last about half an hour. Because of much rivalry between the two schools, the atmosphere grew ten.«e as game-time nearcd. The team. 1 ;, both undefeated, will attempt to keep their records intact. DcQuecn grid teams always put up one of their hardest battles against Hope. Only two years ago the Leopards cfeino to town and knocked the Bobcats for a loop that left them stun- nod for days. • " " The .squads, according to the best information available, will be nearly equal in weight. A large crowd is expected to witness the game. The committee sent the charges to Secretary Morgenthau who replied that similar evidence previously had reached the deportment and been found to be without basis. The committee said its investigators had collected sufficient data upon which it would hase recommendations to the senate. It issued a brief statement saying: "In reference to the charge of undue political activity on the part of the internal revenue collector for Arkansas and of other federal officials in Arkansas, the committee sees no further need for investigation and at the proper time will make its statement of findings and recommendations to the .senate." Senator Sheppard (Dem., Texas), chairman, said the statement meant the committee had sufficient data on which to base recommendations. Maryland Case The committee told Secretary Mor- gcnlhau in sharp language that he was wrong in approving political activity by the internal revenue collector at Baltimore, and that it would ask the jjcriac to act on the case. ? The collector, M. Hampton Magru- dcr, has acknowledged telling non-civil service employes in his office that he intended to support Representative David J. Lewis, later defeated for the Democratic senatorial nomination by Senator Millard E. Tydings. When the senate committee called Morgenthau's attention to this rc- ocnlly, he said the collector's action was proper and had his approval. Action Violation oC I*«w To this, Chairman Sheppard replied: "The committee docs not agree with Ihu position taken by the secretary. "On the contrary, the committee believes the action of the collector of internal revenue wus a violation of the spirit, if not the letter, of the law; that Samuels, Daniels arid, R. Taylor Ineligible The Ho]>c Board of Education Friday ruled ineligible three first- slring football players and ordered them withdrawn from the Bobcat squad, following a conference with the Arkansas Athletic association.

But he was released after two years and in 1930 led tho revolt against the salt tax. Once again he was imprisoned. Released, he soon found his way back to jail in 1932 for civil disobedience. Served in Boer War But, remarkably, his treatment in Africa did not embitter him. To the contrary, when the Boer war broke out, he did notable volunteer hospital work for the British. Again, later, when the British arranged a roundtable conference to settle Indian problems, Gandhi attended. Heeding hi.s preaching of resistance with "non-violence," thousands of his followers have humbly submitted to police charges with clubs without raising a hand in defense. He has lived to see part of his dream come true. The British parliament lias passed laws which give the Indian provinces some measure of home rule. If successful, the British envision a large measure of home rule for the (Continued on Page Three) Once there was an old misogynist who lived at the mouth of the Tigris river and whose nose, according to gossip, had become hyportrophied because he was always poking it into other people's affairs.
