FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRE* Nehru. Not Bound to Any Single Political Theory By HAROLD K. MILKS NEW DELHI, India, April 15 (AP) — Former U. S. Ambassador Chester Bowles, more frequently critical of American foreign policy than that of India, found hopeful signs of "greater understanding" during his recent tour of India on a private visit. "1 believe there has been a favorable turn in the situation," he said iji an interview. "Some misunderstandings between the two countries have been smoothed out and Nehru's approach to communism should be helpful." Nehru, frequently described as a man who talks left and acts right, has been pounding heavily in recent months on the theme of a socialist economy for India. Few people know how far he plans to carry this program. But many believe he is trying to steal the Communists' own arguments. He fancies himself a Socialist but says he Is hot dogmatically bound to any political or erononlic theory. Discard Rest ,,I lake what helps me from Marxism or any other ism and discard the .rest," he has been quoted. Presumably the same is true of democracy. Nehru's test for this political theory is its ability to work in India and right now he's convinced it will do a pressing job better than any other pattern. • Six months ago there was talk— most of it from the Prime Minister himself — of retiring from leadership of the nation and becoming an elder statesman or traveling salesman for his ideas Balky Wife Brings Divorce BOSTON «V-Stanislaw Dziskie- win, a Polish refugee, was granted a divorce yesterday on the grounds his wife refused to leave Poland to join him here "even II you built me a marble palace." Judge Robert G. Wilson noted that Mrs. Dziskiewicz was free to leave Poland. He commented that the letter she wrote her husband seemed to have propaganda in it. One part of the letter read in court said: "I don't want your auto, your money or, your house because it is easy to obtain these things." Double Celebration MARCELLUS, Mich. (#>)—Charles Decker, a retired barber, will have a, double celebration Monday. It will be his 100th birthday and his diamond wedding anniversary. Becker and his wife. Melissa. 95, were ma tried in Vicksburg, Mich., 75 years ago. MOMENT OF SPRING— Spring officially begins when the sun, finished with its job of making summer tor the Southern Hemisphere, travels northward and passes over the spot indicated on the map. This will happen at 4:36 A. M., EST, March 21st. of coexistence. This talk has disappeared. Nehru snaps sharply at anyone who mentions it. Since he advanced the ideas of retirement, he has shed two of his many jobs—president of the Congress party and defense minister. But he kept all the others, including the prime ministership, the Foreign Ministry, the head of the planning commission and a half dozen others. It keeps him working more than IB hours a day. "There is too much to be done and too little time to do ij," he says. Works Until Midnight At 65 his long hours behind a desk are beginning to reflect in a tiny paunch. His daily program includes a cup of tea at 6:15 a.m., a half hour's yoga with a period of standing on his head, a few minutes romp with pet pandas, a new tiger cub or his young grandsons, then a work day which lasts well past midnight and leaves him time for only five hours sleep. Nehru, as a symbol of Indian leadership, holds the love and affection of the bulk of its 360 million people. Yet the Prime Minister is essentially a lonely man. Part of this loneliness is due to his own preoccupation in building a new India. Part is due to the There is no time for social relaxation". He finds his greatest escape in mixing with the masses. Recently, despite an incident at Nagpur in which a knife waver jumped on his car, Nehru has been doubling his public appearances, spending a part of the day in his office or Parliament and the remainder flying to beep public engagements. "It's hard to explain medically what happens to the Prime Minister when he mixes with his people," said a physician who helps guard Nehru's health. "One public meeting with a hundred thousand people listening does him more good than a week's vacation." Nehru has no public thoughts of a successor. "There are plenty of young men coming up," he says. But when pressed to name one who might take over the reverence, respect and popularity he holds from the Indian people, Nehru changes the subject. The punishing defeat of the Communists in recent Andhrii state election may have the effect of weakening Nehru's concern over their threat to the nation. But. there is one inescapable conclusion evident from his recent public statements: The more con- SECTIOX CHIEF—Cpl* James A.
