Heritage of the That is why tlie Indian situnHon is so surpassingly interesting. We aru getting, through it,, a demonstration of the error in our scale of values. What we take 191- strength is not strenslh. In 19 centuries the belief that mini- kind can live by the law of the jungle has received no more striking contradiction. If sve watch, we shall see how it is that the meek shall inherit the ear th. • —Bruce Cation. The nw;t intcresliiifr thing ;il)out the recent British plan for self-government in India is not the fact Uia» 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. It is the fact that the success or failure of the entire scheme r-:sls 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 senss, the future of the whole empire is at stake. Thn lives of a great many people hang on the outcome. But in the hist 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 n lost cause. The man in. question, of course, is Mahatma Gandhi; and the significance of the power he holds is something which \vc have obslruscly 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 the very real, . substantial power of the world's greatest empire. The fleet that has ruled the ocean for 300 years grips India like a ste:l list. The army that has won victories in every part of the globe stands on guard. The wraith of the world's banker and the world's manufacturer is in reserve; and the whola is directed by the ablest colonial adminis- - trators on earth. Against this Gandhi can offer— what? Nothing whatever. lie wears a loin cloth, he has no money, he has 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 ami wsakness. And yet, today, we see 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 dusts of London will weigh less, somehow, than the words of this one man. Will They "Put in Potatoes" This Year? "The land...Is dolled, not wlt-h the big scll- sustnlnlng farmhomcs of the North, but, with little weather beaten, unpalntcd shacks, a bhcl- ter Irom the sun but not, nt (or bluer weather." Those InndcqiMte homcE, which Philip Kinsley thus describes In a dispatch to the Gazette from western Tennessee, are the answer of one-crop cotton growing to a region which largely P»l Its trubt In nn agriculture that does not aim first ol all to make Its [aim homes self-sustaining. In the course of that Tennessee journey. Mr- Kinsley found many heads of needy farm families who seemed to hnve been brought to nn understanding of what Is basically wrong. They have decided, he tells us, to put in some potatoes this year, and plant more corn In proportion to their col ton acreage. "Then ihcy cnn feed their children and cattle." At one place on his route Mr. Kinsley fell in with Former Lane, who "put In potatoes" last year. He mil In cotton loo, and lost money on It. But he managed to raise enough corn and other things lo keep going through this winter. He could sllll stand on Ills own feet because he had them planted In tlic soil of a self-sustaining farm. There nre Arkansas farmers, ordinarily self- suslntnlng. who could tell Mr. Kinsley that Farmer Ijuie, gelling a corn crop and olhci things hi 1MO. was a lucky mat). There arc many instances where the drouth brought the plans of the most prullcnt to naught last year Bui 1030 was such a year ns none of us may have to (nee again. Under normal weathc conditions. Southern soil and climate oiler In farmer far easier opportunity to create for himself a self-sustaining homo than the North offers Its farmers. We have samWcd with the one-crop system and It has dotted our landscape with pllilul apologies for nival 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 "pulling in potatoes" hereafter. —Arkansas Gazette. l(ff^fe k,Ar7 x# CTra of an Increased amount of corn sugar In packaged goods to the extent that anywhere from five to on; hundred million bushels of corn will be required for this purpose. Physiologists and Authorities in the field of nutrition are con- 'Inccd that It Is Just as healthful o cat com sugar as to eat cane ugar. There is no public health problem involved. The one fact of importance is that corn sugar . s a little less sweet than cane ' sugar and that one therefore will have to eat a little more ot It In order to get the same amount ol sweetness.

GORDON'S BIRTH On Jan. 08, 1833, Charles Cordon, an English soldier, famillarl; ;tiown as "Chinese Gordon" and 'Gordon Pasha," was born in Woolwich, the son ol an army officer.

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 tnenas. You know how they do it, for Katherine has told you. They budget all expenditures. And when tney 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 for the price they can pay. Careful, budgeted buying of consistently advertised merchandise enables them to get the most out ol their dollars. It's a wise baby that picks parents like these.
