DO' hot know, from ' Mr, WiUWe'g address, whether he took, the opportunity of discussing with his hosts in the East the dif ficult' questions ' which they put to. him. . Presumably . he" did, and presumably what he told us on the radio! Monday evening is only', what they said to' him, and not what he, as a semi-official ambassador from the .West, must in frankness and candor have said to them.: : ' r - Tor surely he cannot have al lowed them to think that he thinks' that on all counts wt and our British Allies stand convicted. He, was told,- for example, that the peoples of Asia know what they are fighting for, but that they do not know what we are fighting for. But, as a matter of fact, is this true? Is it true that- the war aims of General Chiang Kai-shek and ,ol Mr, Gandhi are so clear, while our war aims are not? - -. TE MUST hope that on the sub . ject of Imperialism he did not fail to explain to General Chiang Kai-shek that we are at war with Japan because we refused the repeated and persistent offers ot the Japanese-Government to settle all our differences at the expense of China. For the Chinese people are the last people on earth who have the right to question our good faith, and what we did In refusing to sell out, China in her . darkest hour .is more important than , all the words that can be pronounced on the subject of war aims and of liberty and justice. : . , .; y We must . hope also - that . Mr. Willkie did not fail' to explain in Chungking that we are able to be the. fighting Ally 'of China .'.only because the British nations stood steadfast and true and all; alone for over a year, against our other enemy in Europe, we must hope, when Britain s devotion to the in dependence of weak nations was aspersed, that Mr, Willkie remind' ed his hosts of Poland and of Nor way" and of Holland and Bel gium and of Greece, and pointed out to them that no other people in the world;, has. given "greater proofs of re' willingness to -.take awful risks in coming to the help or others.

The record, as set forth in quotations from what Gandhi has said about the war, has been compiled by a Hindu journalist, T.- A. Raman,' in a book -called. "What Does Gandhi Want?" That record ought to be. studied by eyeryone who feels called upon to take a position on the Indian question. QTT June 18, 1940,' when France 7 fell, this is what i Gandhi wrote in his weekly paper: The bravery of .'the French soldier is world-known. But let the world know also the great, bravery of the Trench statesmen in suing for peace." .. . . On July 8. 1940, Gandhi issued "in appeal to every Briton" in which he said: "I would like you to lay down the arms you have as bfing useless for saving you or humanity. Vou will inrlte Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini, to take what they want of the countries y ou . xsll your possessions. Let . them take possession of your beautiful island, with your many beautiful buildings. You will give aQ these but neither your . soul, nor your minds. 'If these gentlemen ..choose' to occupy your homes, you will vacate tiiem.. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourself, man, woman and child, .to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them." On July 14 of this year, he was asked this question:-"Would the Free Indian Government permit the United Nations to use Indian territory as a base of military operations against . Japan and other Axis powers?" To this he replied in his weekly paper that , "if I have any . hand, in . guiding the imagined fiauonai Movenunnu, there would be no further assistance save the toleration of . the United Nations ' on Indian soil under .well-defined conditions. Naturally there will be no prohi- biuon against any Indian giving his own, personal help by way of being, a recruit and ot giving financial aid. It should be understood ' that the Indian - Army has been disbanded with . the withdrawal of the British". . , MR. -. WILLKIE.. reported that V "the wisest mans in China" told him that! "When the aspiration of India tor freedom was put aside to some future date, it was not Great Britain that suffered . in puouc esteem in tne rar East, it was the United States." - I . wish he could tell us what the wisest man in China thinks -wrought to do about Gandhi.. Then we could begin to talk about realities. (Copyright 1942,' ; New;. York Herald Tribune Inc.). .. - .

The statement said that the board felt the restriction in holdings "will facilitate the movement of butter within Canada and permit the best possible distribution of existing stocks". , - '.' -The order also requires that be-glning with November and until further notice all holders of butter carrying stocks in excess ot 5,000 pounds must report their actual holdings to the Foods Administrator, J.

In accordance with .the' board policy established last April, maximum prices of butter will increase on Nov- 2 by of, a cent a pound at wholesale and one cent a pound on retail prices. " This seasonal increase, said the board, is a recognition of the need to encourage more expensive Winter production and to provide for storage costs. The new wholesale price for creamery butter will be of a cent higher , than the prevailing schedules. The - statement continued that When allowance is made for the subsidy of six cents a pound oa butter tat delivered for making creamery butter, these prices mean an average of more than 42 cents per pound .to farmers "during November- - , Price Levels 'Enforced. . The Board emphasized that no increases other than those provided Jn last -April's-order will take : place and . that maximum wholesale and retail prices will be maintained. - "Observance of these maximum price levels will be rigorously enforced", the statement said. To maintain adequate supplies, the- Board asked all housewives, restaurants . and other public caterers to avoid or prevent any extravagant use or waste of butter. . .' ' .The announcement ' said "there has been evidence of a tendency on the part of some consumers to hoard supplies of butter but the Board emphasizes that! purchases of more than immediate .requirements are contrary to the Board's orders and evidence of hoarding of butter will be grounds for prosecution". - .
