India is not like home —no place is—but it Is n fascinating country nnd mine was a wonderful worK so I can look back with pleasure to the 11 months I spent in Karachi, India, as a Ked Cross worker." Mrs. Martha Mc- llwuin Hunt, wife of tlic late Lieut. James Hunt, said when discussing her work there. Mrs. Hunt, whose home Is in C'nrulhersvillc, Mo., arrived in the thai'Stales several days ago utter 40 May .days al sen aboard the USS Molion. She is now here as euest of Mr. nnd Mrs. Ncy Hunt, her pat- cnts-in-law. One of tlie first things one •«>- tlccs when talkiiiK to the Red Cross worker Is Ihe lapel pin she wears. Thc pin is a miniature reproduction of a Giirkhn knife hi its sheath ami by touching a secret catch al Ihe back of thc sheath, Hie knife can be removed, lliind made. It, is of sliver ami yellow gold and is inscribed with (he word "Martha." While in India, Mrs. Hunt hart Ihe opportunity to visit Taj Mahal Temple at Agra, one of the seven wonders of the world. Guides for the temple arc nged soldiers who work for ,1 nothing Np admission Ihe magnified The store m is charged lo cntci it building. PS that this tctnplc his and his wife's tombs can be seen us one enters the temple— tombs of ivory, with figures Inscribed by liund.N Over the doors and windows arc Inlaid precious stones and all of the work was done by hand. Mrs. Hunt also went to Bombay and Calcutta during her slay In India and witnessed religious conventions and (he Indian's "New Year" celebration. When talking of the Indian's religion. I always think of the way they torture themselves," she .said. They often beat ihemselves mercilessly with heavy ropes lo drive out the evil In their bodies. Karachi is a fairly modern city with modernistic homes. "The shops though, are no different than in most other cities." she said. "They open into the street and are poor looklnR with scratched signs to advertise their product. "It is true," Mrs. Hunt said, "that India is an Ignorant, backward country lo those of (he Western countries but there are brilliant men there and most native. 1 learn the English language (|ulek- ly." She hopes to contiue her Rcc! Cross work in the States because she 'wants to help people and that one organization has helped am will continue to help the poor, the sick nnd underprivileged and will always be 'pitching' when there's an emergency."
