SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Heritage oj the Mee^ The most interesting thing about the recent British plan for self-government in India is not the fact that it would bring India doss to dominion status, or that it would cut away the last vestige of its old imperial tradition from the British empire. II is the fact that the success or failure of the entire scheme r-sts chiefly with a half-naked little prisoner in an Indian jail. Many months of study by distinguished Englishmen preceded the drawing up of this plan. Many months of negotiation between British and Indian leaders went into its phrasing. In a certain sense, the future of the whole empire is at stake. Thq lives of a great many people hang on the outcome. But in the last analysis, it is the gentle, unassuming little man in jail who will settle the fact of the proposal. If he approves of it, it will have an excellent chance of working; .if he disapproves, it is a lost cause. The man in question, of course, is Mahatma Gandhi; and the significance of the power he holds is something which we have obstrusely ignored. It is one of the most amazing things in history, 'Measure things with any material yardstick you choose, and Gandhi is nothing. Over him is tha very real, substantial power of the world's greatest empire. The fleet thai has ruled the ocean for 300 years grips India like n st£;l list. The army that has won victories in every part of the globe •stands on guard. The wealth of the world's banker and the world's manufacturer is in reserve; and the wliola is directed by the ablest colonial administrators on earth. Against this Gandhi can offer— what? Nothing whatever. He wears a loin cloth, he has no money, he lias no army and would not use it. if he had one, and he lies under guard in prison. There could be no greater contrast between strength and wsakncss. And yet, today, we sue this personified weakness dictating terms to this massed strength. Gandhi, the powerless, will tell Britain, the mighty, what it can do in India. The steel fleet and the bronzed army and the treasure ctusts of London will weigh less, somehow, than the words of this one man. Will They "Put in Potatoes" This Year? "The land...Is dotted, not with the big self- sustaining fnrmhomes of the North, but with little weather beaten, unpainted shacks, a shelter from the sun but not fit for bitter weather." Those Inadequate homes, which Philip Kinsley thus describes In a dispatch to the Gaze-uc from western Tennessee, are the answer of one-crop cotton growing to a region which largely put Its trust In an agriculture that does not aim first ol all to make Its farm homes self-sustaining. In the courte of I hut Tennessee journey, Mr. Kinsley found many heads of needy farm families who seemed to have teen brought to an understanding of what, is basically wrong. 'I'Dey have decided, he tells us, to put In sosne iiotn- tocs this year, and plant more corn In proportion to their cotton acreage. "Then they can [ecd their children and cattle." At one place on his route Mr. Kinsley fell In with Farmer Lane, who "put in potatoes" last year. He put in cotton too, and lost money on it. But he managed to raise enough corn nijd other things to keep going through this winter. Ho could still stand, on his own feet because he had them planted In the soil of a self-sustaining farm. There are Arkansas farmers, ordinarily self- suslalnlng, who could tell Mr. Kinsley that Farmer Lnnc, getting a corn crop anil olhev tilings in 1930, was a lucky man. Tlicrc are many Instances where tlie drouth brought the plans of the most prudent to naught last year. But, 1030 was such a year us none of us may have to [ace again. Under normal weather conditions, Southern soil and climate olfer the farmer far easier opportunity to create for himself a self-sustaining home than the North offers its farmers. We have gambled with the one-crop system and it has dotted our landscape with pitiful apologies for rural homes. The experience of a year when weather conspired with worldwide market and business conditions to reduce many one-crop Southern farmers to destitution should be a mighty incentive for "putting in potatoes" hereafter. —Arkansas Gazette.

Physiologists and authorities iln the neld of nutrition are convinced that It is Just as healthful to eat corn sugar as to eat cane sugar. There Is no public health problem Involved. The one fact of importance Is that corn sugar Is n little less sweet than cane sugar and that one therefore will have to eat a little more of it In order to get the same amount of sweetness.

They seem to get so much out of living. You met them just alittle over a year ago — the week before they were married. Ten days later it gave you a pleasant glow of anticipation to receive the trim card telling you when they'd be "at home." And today you got another card, headed "Now we are three!" Bill's signature comes first, then Katherine's, and then—the guided, chubby scrawl of the newcomer, Jeremy. You Happen to know that although he is in line for an important promotion, Bill's present salary isn't large. Most other young couples would consider themselves "up against it" if they had to manage on so little. Yet Katherine and Bill maintain a standard of living that is the admiration of all their friends. You know how they do it, for Katherine has told you. They budget all expenditures. And when they decide a purchase is to be made, whether it is a new shade for the reading lamp, or a suit for Bill, or shoes for Katherine, they study the advertisements until they find just what they want tor the price they can pay. Careful, budgeted buying of consistently advertised merchandise enables them to get the most out of their dollars. It's a wise baby that picks parents like these.
