In Cochin is a potpourri of churches, temples, mosques and a synagogue, some very ancient and containing priceless relics. Kerala is also home of many handsome elephants, which can be viewed at the Periyar Lake Wildlife Sanctuary from a motor launch. Benares on the Ganges River is a goal for pilgrims, its narrow, ancient streets lined with vendors. A boat trip down the river at dawn is an unforgettable moment and a way to observe the holy life on the "ghats" (steps1 of the river. Calcutta is India's industrial heart and has a Victorian face in its cool parks, marble statues and museums preserving the yesterdays of a faded British Empire. Planes bustle out of Calcutta for Bagdogra. the airport nearest to Darjeeling. Darjeeling is built on terraces, with fine Westernized hotels. An excursion to Tiger Hill at dawn reveals the enormous twin peaks of Kanchen-junga and Mount Everest never to be forgotten. People also travel to India to see festivals, which include caparisoned elephants, folk dancers and parties. Republic Day on January 26. is most spectacular with folk dances, floats, costumes and parades. Even jollier is Dussehra. celebrating the triumph of good over evil with plays, dances and night fireworks. Diwali is the loveliest of all the festival of lights, when every home is illuminated with tiny earthen lamps. Holi takes place in early spring and is a boisterous festival where colored powder is thrown on everyone. In India it is a great mistake not to partake of local cuisine. Curries are king in many va- from Delhi. Jaipur and Madras: stone inlay work from Agra; enamelled jewelry from Jaipur; a dress, suit and modern painting from Bombay; hand-loomed rug and paisley shawl from Kashmir: an old bronze from Madras; an ivory carving from Kerala: silver filigree and folk painting from Bhubaneswar: terra cotta toys from Calcutta: and tea. fur caps and semi-precious stones from Darjeeling. To cash in on these artistic and cultural delights, wise tourists are planning well ahead to make sure their trip to exotic India is chock lull of delights and the source of happy memories.

The following basic date is ideal information for first-time travelers to India. The first thing to remember is that visitors need valid passports and visas. These can be obtained from the Indian Consulate General offices in New York and San Francisco and from the Indian Embassy in Washington. D.C. Those from the mid-west can get visas from the Vice Consulate of India in Chicago. India's tourist season is from October through March. However, the lovely Himalayan resort of Kashmir and the mountainous tea-planting re- sort town of Darjeeling are best in late spring, summer and early fall. AH of the hill resorts have fine hotels, top sports facilities and cool sunny weather. An effect on the season is the monsoon showers, which start in late May and last into September. The monsoons are not a deluge. There are showers and stretches of sunny-weather. The point to remember is that those visiting during this season need a raincoat and umbrella. The wise tourist will want to stop in north and south India and also see some of the old and the new. A good trip will last 16 to 19 days which allows an itinerary of variety. Travel agents in India can help with on-the-spot planning, but American travel agents working with Government of India tourist offices in North America can lay down a detailed itinerary in advance. First thing to select are the cities to visit and what a wealth of diverse cultures they offer. Delhi, seven cities in one. is India's capital and holds about 1.000 monuments. Don't miss the Red Fort; the Qutb Minar (pronounced Khotb Minar i. a 234-foot id sandstone tower that has stood for eight centuries; Hu-mayan's tomb; and Delhi's definite western flavor. Flights leave Delhi daily for mountainous Kashmir and four times weekly for Khaju-raho. the location of the "temples of love." built in the 12th century and writing with shapely figures that seem about to burst into life. Or fly to Agra and drink in the beauty of the Taj Mahal, the world's most famous tribute to a lost love. While in Agra, visit the relics of the Moghul empire: Fatehpur Sik-ri. once a metropolis and now deserted; Aura Fort and its deserted massive chambers. Include Jaipur, a princely city of pink stone; and Udaip-ur. a city that seems to float on a lake; and Bombay, India's Manhattan, a bustling seaport where people-watching is paramount and the "dhoti" mingles with Western business suits. Nearby are the remarkable sculptures of the Elcphanta Caves. In Kerala. India's Southland, you can relax from busy sightseeing and cruise the 12 P asses Closed GENEVA iUPI - Twelve mountain passes, including greater St. Bernard.

The chapel is hand-carved in 239 pieces of red sandstone and is 25 feet high. Bishop Fisher, who had planned to erect the temple elsewhere in the country as a Mecca for his friends of all races and religions, was invited to the Southern campus in 1938 as a Founders' Week speaker by the late President Dr. Ludd M. Spivey. Impressed with the spirit of the campus. Bishop Fisher said: "Here, we shall erect the temple.'' He died less than a month later, but his widow-went ahead with his plans to bring the Hindu temple to the Methodist-related campus. The cross of Christianity atop the temple recognized' the conversion of Indians to Christianity by Dr. Fisher. He baptized and propheised. "Today. I have seen these hundreds start on a new path. They are weak Christians . . . but they have started on a new-road. I have this day crowned this Hindu temple and this entire village and all these hundreds of human hearts with the cross of Jesus Christ. SEABOARD coast uve RAILROAD State -tip.
