But the trouble today wa.s not political, It was an old fashioned internal row over amateurism, always a pertinent subject in the Olympics. lint this lime it had developed Into the bitterest controversy in Olympic histor>. It started as :> factional batlle between the (orc'cs sixinsorinx two U. S. hockey teams and it wound up involving nearly every committee and most of the tuitions associated with the games.

Conquered by [.ovr His life-long goal was "swaraj," which means self-delermlnation and freedom for everyone, and he said he would achieve his purpose by non-violence, by actually conquering the enemy by love. There was 'little In his early life to show that he was destined to become a leader, since February, 1019, he had devoted his life to leading a non-violent revolution against the British Empire.
