New 'Discovery' Claim American history books would bear some resemblance to the constantly changing Soviet histories if the claims of an Indian (from India) should prove correct. Chainan Lai, a Buddhist monk, says two years of research he conducted about the Aztec, Maya and Inca peoples of Central and South America have convinced him they are descendants of Indians (from India). According to the scholar, a countryman of his by t h e name of Harichand reached this hemisphere more t h a n 2,000 years before Christopher Columbus and charted a course which was followed by many other I n d i a n s during a migration across the ocean which lasted for 17 centuries and ended more than 300 years before Columbus' voyage. This is not the first time claims have been made upon the fame of Christopher Columbus. The Scandinavians have promoted a Nordic adventure which they say reached this hemisphere via Greenland. The Russians have claimed fellow Muscovites came here first through Bering Strait, and even the rights to Columbus' voyage have been claimed by Italy, Portugal and Spain. Lai's entry into the discoverer's arena was prompted by a claim from communist China (which has developed a remarkable imitation of the Russian ability to claim everything first, retroactively) that it was a Chinese junk which first touched American soil. This account is essentially correct, says Lai, except of course it was piloted by the Indian, Harichand. It is true there were people on both the North and South American continents before the Columbus voyage, but theories concerning their origin are almost as numerous as they were when Columbus set foot on this soil. Lai may be correct, but until he is able to construct in detail a" voyage as believable to Americans as that of the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria, his voice will continue to be but one of many crying in the very desolate wilderness of historical revision. ·fc ·£ ft Talents Never Wasted Some critics of the American woman have apparently reached the conclusion that it is a waste of effort by her and a waste of the resources of higher education for the average girl to go to college. A study by the Council for Financial aid to Education reveals that 64 per cent of female graduates of U. S. colleges end up solely as housewives. Critics have jumped on this statistic and tsk-tsked themselves into a frenzy about the marvelous talent being wasted washing diapers or scrubbing floors. Is it a waste of talent for the average housewife to be well educated, even though her working days away from home may be limited to a year or two before marriage and children? Perhaps this question could be answered by another: Would the housewife be better off if she had not devoted four years to a college education? Some economists have a tendency to overlook the h u m a n i t i e s while squeezing the last drop from material attainments. To them, a woman qualified to f i l l a teaching, industrial or professional post, but who prefers marriage and the responsibilities of rearing a family, is, a"wasted cog in the army of productivity. There are other important facets to human life in addition to factories, productivity scales, allocation of workers according to a planned scheme rather t h a n individual desire, and the complete utilization of college graduating classes in the world of business and p u b l i c service. A well-managed home is one of them. And this job, like most others, is made a little easier and a l i t t l e more thorough by an increase in knowledge.

How long this system of self-restrainl will continue is a question. President Kennedy apparently believes that these "proxy" conflicts will last indefinitely, for ho has begun to place greater emphasis on special training for that Russia will not wage war against us as soon as the Kremin warlords believe that they can defeat us?" asks W. B. of Hnmil- on, Ohio. Answer: Although I do not know lie degree of the President's eon- irience on this question, Russia's Jans are fairly well known to guerrilla units in the U. S.

The st to know that there would be Argentina crisis is particularly disturbing to authorities here be- .here was none in World War II.[cause of the huge vote for Peron| isla candidates. His popularity rested on the fact that he gave the mob bread and circuses while he bankrupted the nation. He was demagogue as well as dictator. To relieve these conditions, President Frondizi installed a system of austerity. In fact, he in- luguratcd the very reforms which we demand throughout Latin America to qualify for Alliance aid. As a result, he had to quit at the demand of the military. We recognize that many elements in the wealthy, land-owning clnss arc hostile to the tax and land reforms upon which we insist as a condition of billions in 'rosy Wars -- With mniirkable candor, however, Khrushchev has innounced that he favors and sponsors "wars of liberation" in which, ns he says, small nations seek to win freedom from their 'imperialistic masters." He regards such nations as Cuba, Katanga, Laos and South 'iulnam as falling into this category. And to the revolutionary elements in these nations he ships supplies, technicians and weapons, lie is giving them all kinds of aid 'short of war." Cuba is the most spectacular example.

In 1947, millions of Americans were without telephone service as telephone workers in 39 states called the nation's first countrywide strike in the industry. In 1953, Dag Hammarskjold ol Sweden was elected secretary-i general of the United Nations for a five-year term.

How such a canard persists in the face of overwhelming evidcnc to the contrary is beyond me. The truth is that the average male can run a house just as efficiently, if not more so, than the average female.
