In. In j late September a thousand hungry I persons marched thiough ills streets shouting "Howrah U in the tfrip of famine— give us rice or we shaJl die."

India has had' two successive years of bad crops. This was followed by six months: of devastating floods in the Chittagony area which wiped out much of this year'* vital crop. The resulting shortage is complicated by the political .situation. Great masses of people Kfcve been moving from place to place. Some were farmers, who might have been growing food. The general displacement ha.s made it difficult to distribute short simulie. 1 ; properly. And Doctor's Widow Seeks Release from Prison LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. Oct. 22.
