WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2<i, 1947 BIATIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Situation in India Still'Awful Mess' 'Improvement' Only Means Deaths Drop To Hundreds Daily BV ROBERT C.

(UP)—Tile ' "considerable improvement" in India and Pakistan as reported by their governments rneniil merely n dwindling of casualties Jrom thousands to hundreds a day, It became clear today. In short, tins carnage-wracked sub-continent In the infancy of Its independence still is in an awful ; mess. The savage lust for blood still is unslaked. And the decrease in blood-letting was a result only of the imposition of the mast rigid military and police measures. The equivalent of martiul law throughout the land was the only thing which iircventcd the continuance of wholesale slaughter. Five thousand troops equipped for battle were required In Uelhi alone; to maintain a semblance of order. Almost certainly their removal would start the cnmngc all over again. •Both governments \vere deeply involved in the greatest mass mi- Kralion of modern history, involving an estimated 4,000,000 persons who for the most part were strag- . | gling along by whatever means of : 1 transportation they could muster. I Still Threaten Each Other Yet officials still found time to threaten each other with war, for charge and counter-charge, and for broadstroke attempts to smear the sister government. Most cities had huge refugee camps bulging with thousands of half-starved, filthy, hysterical minorities unable to move because of the generally broken down trans- l»rt system. Already disease and epidemics had killed hundreds. The survivors ate, slept and sat in mud and slime from the late monsoon rains under conditions that would make a JajJanese prison camp look Hke a sanctuary. Even military escorts could not guarantee the safety of the refugees. Trains still were being derailed, caravans attacked, villages burned.

Two British officers were killed in the last three days in battles between Indian troops and gangs in the Punjab. The emotions of the already temporarily insane populace were being kept at the boiling point by inflammatory editorials and by dishonest and distorted news reports in the biased newspapers of both dominions.

UN. however, from taking a second look at some of the remarks made in the assembly last week by Soviet officials — and at an extemporaneous challenge thrown out yesterday by Great Britain in the midst of general debate. Britain Hails Challenge It seemed likely to many that Russia's hinting was the product more of bluff than of fact, and that Britain's challenge was a try 'at bluff-calling. Whatever it was, the record ol the first week's debate in the general assembly provided these intriguing bits: 1.

I i tiat the {(&W National Guard means to yo A MessageTfromltheiPresident of_the"_United States OWE our existence as a nadon to ihc tradition of service of our Citizens. It was an army of citizen soldiers which George Washington led to victory in the American Revolution. At the end of that war, the first Congress asked General Washington to give his views on what the military polity of the new nation should be. This was his answer: ^ V ' "<QK** ^ V'... every citizen who enjoys the • I protection of a free government, owes not only a proportion of . his properly but even of his per-' j »soual services lo the defense of it.'^ Today the new National Guard gives every man an opportunity to give that ' personal service to his country and at the same time to advance himself. In National Guard units all over the country thousands of veterans and other ambitious young men arc finding the opportunity to study and learn the things that help them advance in their civilian jobs. They arc finding the fellowship that is pan and parcel of America. They arc participating in a sports and recreation program that keeps them fit. And they arc receiving the training that helps keep America strong. Because of llic National Guard's importance to our national defense I have proclaimed September i6th as National Guard Day and have directed thai a nationwide recruiting campaign be con-) ducted to fill its ranks. fM/{Kr/tee ew/ttvup, s V-1^IH \B /.•, f « T> f\ i zr n n . •"_' _ -_ --. —~— •- . trlf INDUSTRIAL LIFE .nj HEALTH INSURANCE CO?
