', -MONDAY, OCTOBER : 10, 1949 THI NATION TODAY— India's Prime Minister is Due In U.S. Tomorrow on Mission Of Goodwill From New Nation B.v G. Miilon Kellj- (For James Marlow) WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. WV-Ainericans will see something different n modern diplomatic techniques while India's Prime Minister Jawahar- 1»1 Nehiu Is in this country. Nehru, a proud and handsome figure, told his people before leaving mat lie would come here with nothing to buy or sell, but hoped to learn i bt. He is simply on a goodwill mission. Those who know him well say Nehru is far too lofly to ask for handouts for his newly-freed «nd Iroiibled country, and that American diplomats probably know better than to Iry to high-pressure him. *— : .. Absent Minded Salesman Forgets His Suitcase; It was Full of Diamonds ELIZABETH, N. J., Oct. 10. (ffj— Selmar Hilborn, a N ew yoik Industrial diamond salesman, was think- ing'of something else Friday wlieii he set down his suitcase to unlock .'•BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) 1 COURIER _ The Western powers and the .•Jjtssian Woe have wooed his stra- >^irally Important nation, which sprawls with its 300.000,000 people Just a few n ,|| cs below the Soviet border. he Nehru has declared frankly that wants no part in the world's Power politics—he doesn't want his country to become a battlefield for somebody else's war. He saw what tile conquering and the reconquering allies did in Burma. How long, anil to what degree, India will stay neutral is much discussed by diplomats. The West clearly hopes Nehru will get a good imm-ession on this, his first visit to the United States. It hopes a better, mutual understanding will result from the tour, which also will carry him twice into Canada', and that if he - ever swings, it will be toward the West. Indians Like Americans -The average Indian is inclined to like Americans as individuals. But he harbor.s a resentful feeling that as a nation we didn't help India .to shake off British rule, and aren't much interested In helping Indians to hold their hard-won independence and prosper in It. Most Indians dislike Communism, but they don't view it In the same persepctive as Westerners. They are his car. HiJborn got in the car and drove cff, leaving the suitcase sittln<- on the sidewalk. The salesman missed the case about IS minutes later. He came oack posthaste. Luckily, the custo- n er he had just finished culling on had found it and kept it for him It was full of diamonds.

Eritrea —M'l— A blood filed between two Somali tribes Il?rrrrl into open warfare recently. E'.My were killed and 120 wounded lielore French Somaliland authorities intervened, according to reliable information reaching here. For years at harvest time there have been outbreaks between the Gadabussied and Issas tribe' near Djibouti. Basis for (heir difference is that the Issas claim local autonomy while the Gadabiissicd favor complete French control. Then both sides started fighting, using modern weapons smuggled in from British Somaliland during the war. In 40 minutes the battle was over and the field littered with dead and wounded. The situation now is described as ri'Vmal again. — -fj"-n uunll IIC1I1 IIU.SS- -mi. State Highway Patrolman Bil Lancaster said there was no dam age from this thrust.

HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Great Men Are Most Difficult Subjects for Camera'Artist 1 NEVy YORK —M'y— Winston Churchill once grumbled to Yousuf Karsh, "You can eveii make a roaring lion stand still to be photographed." H was a reluctant tribute to a sensitive young Armenian who has 1 become one of the greatest Iciis artist of our time. .lie has made everybody rrom Joan Crawford to Pope Pius "look at the birdie." And after 15 years of stalking celebrities with his camera. Karsh lias a matchless gallery of portraits. • ' ' But It has taken considerable doing to get them, for famous people often are more difficult to Photograph than babies. Churchill was a . case In point.- Karsh ambushed him in Ottawa ! in the House of Commons just after Winston hart made a stirring | wartime address. Still flushed from his speech, the premier didn't want | his picture taken. Reluctantly he j paused before the camera a'iid'llt I a lone cigar. '•' 'When-Karsh heiei 'out' irt'i a'shtray, I Churchill only clamped his jaw more [irmly on his stogie. Karsh impulsively reached out, murmured "Forgive me. sir." and plucked the cigar from the lips of trie astounded statcsman>Tneh he stepped back and clicked his camera on church- ill—a. glowering lion at bay. The result vas an unforgetablc portrait. It caught the spirit of I besieged Britain in one indomitable face. :! Karsh doesn't try to catch hisi subjects in odd poses. i "Why should I pick a man when ' his fork's in his mouth?" he said. 1 "When I make a picture, I try' to make it an embodiment of the man at the height of his life.

So, I've decided to go Into business for myself and if I can say I cracked a syndicated column, maybe I can land a couple or accounts on the strength of It.

Shaw began interview by remarking: "What are you— Armenian? Thai's good, i have many good Armenian friends. But you know, of course the only way to keep Armenians' healthy and strong is to exterminate them once in a while."-;-., The late General John J. Persh- mg, rising from a sickbed foV. his last portrait, said, half-joking, halfwistful: , "Take a picture the American people will remember for a hundred years." Karsh said one of his most difficult subjects was Lord Beaverbrook, because of his restless energy. But "the beaver" was so pleased with his portrait he exclaimed: "You have immortalized me." Karsh mentioned the incident to an acquaintance oJ Bcaverbrook, and the man said: "Karsh. are you sure that . was a good idea?" At 40, Karsh has pnotographcc! most of Europe's monarchs and a majority of the world's top statesmen, diplomats and military leaders. "But tne man whose portrait I would like most to make is Stalin," he said. "A good picture or Stalin might help to explain him to the world. He has never faced an un- his __ biased ,camera." you on oeorge Barr, the company's general manager. Barr, a chemist, lost a leg thirteen years ago, and slier getting the usual run-around in employment agencies, decided to hire himself.

"When he needed additional help, he decided to hire people who, like himself, had been written on as unemployable. He was careful 'o match up job and worker; and soon round the handicapped could do certain types o[ work even better than ordinary folks. For example, the blind, who have been forced to - use Iheir fingers for eyes, are usually more proficient at delicate handwork than sighted people; those who use crutches develop stronger arms and shoulders and can feed a : heavy machine without tiring as quickly: the deaf, ns a rule have unusual powers of concentration iind .Elvis a good account of themselves when it comes to checking and inspection work And so on. • "After Pear Hartwr, the company,' by then a five-millioii-dollni--a-year proposition, switched ovcr&to 'war work and Its production'record was so good it was avfcirded the Army- Navy 'E'!
