'Nobody Listens to the Poor People' New Delhi Cant Absorb Migrants By HENRY S. BRADSHF : I NEW DELHI, India (AP)—Par-! vati drew the end of her cheap cotton sari over her head, framing a thin face with a gold disk in the right side of her nose, and said in a tone of weary anger:. "We had a place to live in the village but no work to earn food; here we have work but no place to Jive." Parvati stood talking in front jf the place where she lives in fear of eviction. It is a one-room hut of mud brick Walls four feet high with a reed roof. Government employes i-ocently tore down similar homes in the squatters' colony where she lives, trying to drive the several hundred persons from then rocky corner in New Delhi's Diplomatic Enclave, Across the street is the tall government-owned Ashoka Hotel, one of the finest in Asia. A double room in its air-conditioned plush- ness costs $18.90 a day with young Hobby Club meals, use of the-swimming pool i and other luxuries. Next door is the British High Commission, a cluster of fine modern office and ^artment buildings. The showpiece American Embassy is just down the block. The people of Parvati's colony helped build the fine buildings. The men carried the stones and cement and the women balanced seven bricks at a time on their heads as they walked up ramps along the rising walls. For construction labor the men | get two rupees (42 cents) a day, the women 1.75 rupees. With both man and wife working, an average monthly family income to feed four or five is equal lo the daily rate of the hotel's double room. The money pays for little more than simple food. The women squat outdoors to cook rice and vegetable gruel and wheat cakes Cigar Box, Wire For Feed Station By CAPPY DICK Right now there is plenty of food for the birds that fly into your yard,' but before many weeks have passed Winter will bi hero and the birds are apt lo find it hard to find something to eat. That is why this is a good time for a boy or girl to build a bird feeding station. A cigar box and a piece of mesh wire are all the materials you need., First remove the cover of the box. Cover the open side with the mesh wire — chicken wire will do. Tack it . in place (Figure 2). Cut the lid of the box into two pieces as shown by the dotted line marked "A" in Figure 1. Tack or glue one half of the lid to one end of the mesh- covered box for a porch and attach the other half to the opposite end for a roof (see Figure 3). Before covering the open side of the box with wire, bore two small holes in the roof end and string a wire through them. When the station has been .completed, twist the ends of this wire around together around a tree branch so the feeding station will hang down from it. Hang the station low enough so you can easily re..cli it from the ground. Stick pieces of suet, bread and nut meats in the wire mesh so the birds, landing on the little porch, can get at them. You will find the feeding station to be popular with the birds and you'll have fun watching them from a distance where your presence will not cause them to fly away.

October 22,1962 over charcoal braziers. They can afford meat once or twice a month, In 1941 both New Delhi and Old Delhi had 700,000 residents. Now the population of tht area, including some surrounding farm land, is 2,644,000. Much of the Increase has been from migrants, like those in Parvati's colony, forced from rural villages by overpopulation and a shortage of land. The city has not been able to absorb them properly. Parts of old Delhi have turned into slums. Open spaces throughout New Delhi, where the recent construction has been, ure dotted with squatters' colonies. The government objects that the squatters are unsanitary and illegal. From time to time, crews descend upon colonies while the men are off working and pull down the huts, trying to force people io leave. The squatters say they -ere promised electricity, more water taps at the common fountain and other help during last February's parliamentary elections. But instead of help coming, the wreck- en came. Now when they go to the home of the successful candidate, a minister in Prime Minister Nehru's government, His servants always say he is out. "Nobody listens to the poor people," Parvati said.
