THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1998 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER KSTW* Overseas with BILLY GRAHAM By George Burnham (Ch»ttanoog» News-Free Friw Writer) MANILA — The 600,000,000 people of India will go behind the Iron Curtain of Communism in less than five years. And other teeming millions of the Far East won't be far be-1 hind. That is the opinion of a top American official who lives | in India and who has been trained to look for significant signs, j India will never go Communistic, Historical culture and the attitude of the people will never permit Communist domination. That is the opinion of a member of Prime Minister Nehru's cabinet. The opinions were given in answer to the direct question: "Do you think India will go Communist?" My month's tour of India with Dr. Billy Graham doesn't qualify me as a foreign affairs expert, but it doesn't take an expert to ask a simple question. And it—doesn^v take an expert to see glaring facts. TWO DIFFERENT points ot view were given many times as the question was put to government officials, taxi drivers, statesmen, missionaries and other people from all walks of life. But a majority of .opinions and facts leaned heavily toward the un pleasant picture that Russia is gaining the upper hand in India, where^the population dwarfs that of the United Stales. Here are some things that will aid Americans to see the situation: India's powerful labor unions and many top government posts are in the hands of Communists. Paralyzing violence is turned on and off by lifting the telephone. One of the greatest strongholds of Communism is in universities. There are strong cells on every campus. T Strangely enough, in India there are more Communists among stu- dente and white collar workers than among the poorer class. This may be because Russia figures she can get the hungry ones anytime and is groups. concentrating on other INSURANCE and medicine has been nationalized, and other big business will follow the same path. Assets are being taken away from the man who has worked hard and accumulated something. One Indian •with several companies said: "My days are numbered." Russian popularity is high. Banner-waving youngsters shouting "Up Red flag, Up Red flag" march up and down the highways. Most of | them don't know why they are marching, but have been told by higher-ups that it is the thing to do There are no marching bands of Christians waving Bibles, or Hindus praising their gods. Billy Qraham has been given a good reception everywhere he went, but Americans are not popular in India. Newspapers are filled with slanted stories praising Russia and casting the United States in a bad light. | The door to missionaries from | America is closing. Tne ones ai-| ready on the scene have seen the j handwriting on the wall and are busily -training Indian Christians to take over all phases of the leadership and work. A number of missionaries already have been noti- fierl to leave the country. Freedom, as Americans know freedom, doesn't exist in India. A tourist has to register with police at every city he visits. Only authorized persons can send telegrams abroad. These are censored Women aren't the only people who are followed in India. A close look at various pronouncements by Nehru shows a definite leaning toward Russia, HIS autobiography Is even more reveal- Ing. It plainly shows his preference for Communism- over friendship wiiht he United States. Those are just a few of the signs. All of them point down a rough road for world peace. Not So Ticklish LEXINGTON, Ky. Ml—Two local youths found nothing ticklish about their two-month court imposed task.
