The r (jutouchable* Mayor of Madras Pity the poor mayor of Madras, Indian city of a million persons and capital of Madras Presidency on the Bay of Bengal. Although J. Sivashannuigan 1'illai is •the highest ranking official of the city, inahy of his dorks won't handle documents he has signed, or pay him ordinary courtesies. Many of his fellow officials won't sit with him in conference. Although it is his'duly to inspect the city, there are certain streets down which lie cnniiol walk, many wells frorn which he caiinot drink, hundreds' of doors which he cannot enter. 'Certain' families who associate with him are liable to periods of punishments' during winch shopkeepers may not sell them goods, barbers may not shave' tlitini, mailmen nniy not deliver their mail/ chi-riers may not take them \vater' ami school teachers must not allow their children - within school buildings. Eyen most of the temples are bar- reti to HiS Honor, for Mayor Pillai is an mi touchable, the first of his wretched class 16 ever be mayor of an Indian city. He was elected after a 10-year campaign by India's" great Gandhi, bill the wisdom of such a campaign and victory is doubted by even Gandhi's friends'. For in the minds of millions of people of India the very .touch of an untouchable is, considered the tench of misfortune (of' nny enterprise.' Lepers, thieves and beggars-may use Madras' broad King's Highway, but Mayor Pillai is barred from stepping a foot upon it. He is despised and ostracized by the castes above hirii and there arc no castes below him. Ghandi has fought a ceaseless battle to break down the Indian caste system which condemns millions of its people by the sole accident of birth Lo an abject poverty and misery each generation. The untouchable cannot leave his taste and • daiinot rise above it. Tiifife lie lives, there he dies. . The election of Mayor Pillai is Gandhi's ,tirst wedge into the caste system. All the break has done thn.s fitr is to bring scorn upon the head of Madnts and acute suffering to (ho mayor, Whet can never lose consciousness of his owii class humility. But. Gandhi is not working • for today, nor tomorrow. Centuries bnilt up Saving The World Dr. Ernest li. Wilkins, president of Oberlin College, has formulated live plans for participation of the United States in world affairs and submitted them lo the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs with the succinct observation that "the United Stales cannot (hidlo notitrality while Homo burns." 'Dr. Wilkins was^a member of the War Personnel Board and director of Y. M. C. A. work during the World War. His plans are: A defensive alliance with Great Britain and the Dominions; aii international League of Democracies ; joining the present League of Nations; creation of and participation in a new League of Nations; an All- American League of Nations. Dr. \Vilkins favors one of the first four plans and all his jirgiunenls for them ("we can cither run t,he world or run away from it") ignore the one point that always has and probably always will hold the United Stales back from such alliances: Policing the world with ships and men against a thousand imminent and potential squabbles, invasions, aggressions, and bullying tyrannies which do hot involve our interests or threaten our shores. Tim Wrong Way Regardless of origin and racial t'cul- ing.s, n very small percentairo of American eilixcns liuve much sympathy with Die efforts of the Gcrrmm- Americiin Bund to organi/c nml flourish in Die United States. Tliat lack of sympathy, though, does not prove that the action of legionnaires in helping bi-cmk up a bund meeting in Buffalo the ollipi- night is cither jnstiliui! or the correct way to combat Nazi propaganda—granting it is iicceptecl as undesirable. Enlightened • education will do it, slowly it is true, but there are few cases on record when violent opposition and denial of constitutional rights have ever broken up any movement.

She had a fear of hcing separated from the (log before leaving Englnml. Next morning in a nearby shop she bought a dress length of hlack woolen material of the cheapest sort, and thread to sew it with. Then she found a manluamnkcr who said she could turn it into a drcs.s before night. She also ordered a bonnet. "Make it plain and ill-rilling, 1 Polly ordered, "and high in Ihe neck." Polly then made another surprising rcquci 1 !. "Can you tlircci me lo :i wiemakcr?" The woman told her fhcrc was such a man on Ihe next street ne.xl door lo Ihe lobacconisl's "And riot busy ;my more sinci people have taken a fancy to ihei: own hair." Polly found the wigraaker t< he an elderly Jew with a sympa thelic manner. When he had flu ished wailing oh a customer ani they were alone in Ihe shop Poll} explained her need. "I must dres as an old woman for n lime. Ai old woman of no imporlancc am no money. Can you help me?" The old man looked into Polly' lionesl young face and decided i was free of evil inlcnt. "Come in lo llic back room," he said. II placed her on :i lall stool an studied her head. "Your hair i loo heavy lo be covered with wig. Will you permit me lo ci itV" "Cut it," answered Polly. "II of no interest lo me." old wigmakcr knew a good • deal about disguise, lie had some shadow salve he had once made up for a theatrical troupe, lie experimented on Polly's, face with this. When lie had filled the wig and applied Ihe lines of age to Polly's eyes he said exultantly, "Thai is yootl!" Bui he added, "If it's a :ckless prank you're up to, think vice. Such things can lead lo oublc." "It's no prank," Polly said. "It's i escape from danger." The old man's fact grew grave. Then il's well I've contrived with till." He refused pay for any- l{ save the wig ilselt and 'ishcd her bon voyage. That night when (he dress and onnel had been delivered, Polly •as obliged lo send for the inn- ceper and porter and tell them f her intent. She showed them rcss, bonnet and wig, assuming a igh-tiandcd aggressiveness she ,'as far from feeling. "When I leave here tomorrow lorning," she said, "I'll be dis- uised as an old woman for rca- ons entirely my own. I assure •on no harm will come lo anybody (ecause of 11." To forestall any .ualms, of conscience on Ihe parl >f cilher,:she haslily overpaid her avorn bill and lipped the porter M^EXT morning, whal appeared lo be a tall, bent old woman laggard and uncommunicative came into the stable yard of the nn to lake conveyance on Ihe Deal coach. She was followed b> mongrel dog and by a porte bearing her trunk. As the laller helped her into Hi coach he said, "Walch yer dog old dame. He's a frisky one." HI owcrcd an eyelid to show his en ioymcnt of the situation, for Ii ivas a good-natured Devonshire man who relished a joke. "Mind your manners'." retortec Ihe old woman, frowning se-verelj ; 'Get along with you!" Hey mout twitched oddly. "Not till I ask ye about a letter, said the riorler. "Here 'Us. Th came from Lon'on iast night, bi not by regular post. The drive carried it down. He rcmcmbere about it this mornin', sayin' it w: to be delivered to a young lady b name of Chelscy. Now your nam bo Chelscy, bill il's been a tin since- yc were young . . ." "Give it here!" said Ihe ol woman and whacked him smarll across Ihe shoulder with her slaf "Il's for my niece." Her cyeli loo, lowered discreetly, in mu apology for the whack. As the coach jolted out of tl cobbled slable yard and gained the highway, Polly Chelsey examined the leUer with curiosity. She diet not recognize the cramped feminine handwriting of the address, but supposed it must be from Mrs. Toby, beialedly wishing her bon voyage. , . She had a more pressing mailer lo think about. The driver would soon -be asking his ' .passengers Where they wanted lo be scl'down, and Polly had not chosen her clcs- ll intion. Even yet her only beacon ;I is that phrase of Jerry's: "some Jl l\cre short of Deal there's a retched fishing village where this j nuBgler puts in . . ." ; Will I know the place when I e it? she was asking herself. Her | igers were automatically break- g Iho seal of the letter, andlj lening il. And now she began lo :ad. By l!ie time she had readied . | ic second line she was sitting | reel, gripping the paper. ; * * « : 'npIIIS will surprise you no lit- j A lie.

For some days I Worried j vcr this and then went to (hcj nicorn and Cr'n to tell you. You! ad Gone and my Troubles were; ddcd to when I lernt you were: \merikaii and frendlcss. Mr. Toby: ays you are trying to get to rancc. I Hope this catches you: rst. I hereby confcs I never saw liis J. Whitflcld before the day he vas pointed out to me in your ompany and I Waved lo him so rendly. The hackney coach Jriver was the one employing me. ; 'lial night this man went into the' Unicorn and Cr'n taproom and set it a table with J. Whilficld and pretended to be drunk and I Camc| n and pretended to look /or him iccausc he was Ihe driver of a • hack I was Riding in. Then I saw; iiis J. Whilfield of yours and lold' _im I had Mislook him earlier for i Navy Man I knew and also lold! iim.1 was having Irouble with Ihi; lack Driver. Your Sweetheart got] coffee and sobered the man upj and then went with us to the Ke-j [u'ckle. It was Nothing but Ki ness on his part and it shames to say he was then Hit on the hc;ut and carried lo a Ship. They saict he was a deserter from ftis Majesty's Navy but on thinking ilover I.realize this may be a lie as our Navy is Short of Men and some- limes Ihey are nol to careful. Ihey would as soon have an amerikaix as not. maybe ralhcr. Bui whether he was a Navy Deserter or nol, he was not a Deserter of you and Ihis is what I had to Tell you. My advice to you is go to the fishing; lown of Corly south of Deal and ask at the Inn there for a Man named John McGcan. He is a' smuggler that dont mind a Passenger.
