Is India next? Red '".liina h»s: PnW'..-:!tr.d a new map ".inncx- ins:" thousands of square miles of India, Accused India of " the rebellion In Tibet. Infiltrated India with Red agents disguised as Tibetan monks. Blasted through Peiping broadcasts of the sanctuary which India has afforded Tibetan refugees. Every day some new pressure Is applied by Red China on her "neutral" neighbor. But because India's basic religious convictions are utterly Incompatible with communism, rebel Red armies rising up Inside India arc-unlikely. If India Is overrun by the Red tide it wil^ be, as In Tibet, by Invasion. Red China will set the stage for such an attack by further publication of maps which nibble away at her neighbor's real estate, and by a mounting propaganda campaign intended to convince Asia that India is the "captive of western imoeria- Itsts and thus needs to be liberated." When Mr. Nixon and Mr. Kennedy, from both sides of our political fence, urge massive additional American aid to India, we contribute ammunition to helping's propaganda machine. These well-meaning Americans fear that Red China in chains will Industrialize and improve the standard of living there and so become A showcase for communism. . . While India, if it remains backward, will be squeezed out of world markets and .eclipsed. Certainly that polm'of view deserves consideration. But let us alsocons'idertheot- her possible effects. Too often when Uncle Sain offers somebody a hand up, it becomes a handout. Often enough it alienates the recipient. And too often our "aid" is diverted to the personal- use of mercenary politicians. If further "foreign aid" of this kind is the best we can do, then we will liasten the demise of India rather than prevent it. If the United States is to be blackmailed by every nation which threatens to go Red if we Mon'i kwt> it intl» black, there'' is no «td to it. And the teonomte hot var which Khrushchev IMS declared will "be won by the tuition which • keeps itself liquid, sound and strong. Mr, Nehru, who lias eonsis' tentty compromised with the Communists, is inheriting the tragic consequences of hypocrisy. Before we take U vipon ourselves to industrialize that vast backward nation, an effort which virtually bankrupt the British, let us recognize the awesome odds on this gamble. Our seven p«r cent of the earth's population cannot conceivably feed and fortify and finance the rest of the world without dragging our level of living down to match theirs. If we would, instead, help raise their standard of living tomatch .ours, we must ranain an example - a star to steer by. From 1189 until 1913 the rest of the world was following us. We gave them no guns, no butter, no money. But with nothingmo- re than a light, in the window, our gallant three million fore- fathers.led the world.

McGee's administrative assistant, Joe Davis, suggested -the kMs probably were delayed " waiting for one of the automatic elevators in the' new Senate Office Building. Thesearesup- posed no think for themselves- but "the'senators say they mostly just daydream. A cheer went up as the braves finally streamed single file out of what's left of the woods on the Capitol Mall. They picked their stealthy way between the piles of rubble from the demolished east front and the big red gash left by the new Senate subway. McGee, squinting, optimistically at a cloud no bigger than a man's hand, stepped before the three' painted tepees and announced that we could blame the delay on the bull snake*. All but one of them died en route with the boys by bus. Too hot and dry, apparently. Stand- ins had to be borrowed from the Washington zoo. With this preface out of the way, the boys popped the snakes into their mouths and put on an Indian rain dance so genuine and authentic it is said they have been sought out by the Hopis to teach it. By the time they were done, that one little cloud, no bigger than a man's hand, had clean disappeared, and as the crowd scurried to get out of the sun, the announcer said it would rain in 24 hours. I listened closely though and I don't believe he said where.

VATICAN CITY'(UPI) - Pope JohnXXU, with an eye on nationalist surges in Africa end elsewhere, is quietly taking the "colonial flavor" o« of pan of Catholic Church administration abroad. There is no thought of relaxing any of the ties to Rome or of the supreme authority of the Pope. The idea is to have the Roman Catholic Church in each country run locally by natives of that country - in Africa by the Africans and not by Italians. Americans, French or other nationalities. All this will take tune. But the increasing number of appointments by Pope John .of native bishops and auxiliaries and the erection of new dioceses in former mission territory shows that the Vatican is hastening a program which has been in progress for centuries. The late Pope Plus XII alone appointed more than a score of African bishops. •> The new and old worlds on either side of the Atlantic have their own cardinals, hierarchy, local priests, universities and seminaries. But a vast pan of the world, including almost THE ALMANAC Today is Sunday, August 23, the 235th day of the ' year, with 130 more days in 1959. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning star is Mercury. The evening stars are Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Venus. On this date in history: In 1500, Christopher Columbus was arrested in Haiti on charges of mistreating the natives, and ordered sent back to Spain in chains. In 1775. King Geprgeof Englandproclaimedthat a state of rebellion existed in the American colonies. In 1869, the poet Edgar Lee Masters was born. In 1923, the first real comedians of radio, Billy Jones and Ernie Hare, went on the air, billed as "The Happiness Boys." In 1926, Rudolph Valentino died. In 1927, Nicola Sacco and BartomomeoVanzetti were executed as a climax to one of the most controversial trials of the century. In 1937, Japanese forces landed at Shanghai. »»»»»» TUuuyii for today: U is written in the Bible: "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a t%ie to-die." the entire continent of Africa, is still "colonial" church administration - in the sense that'In these areas there is no local native hierarchy or dioceses. "Foreigners." regardless of their good inten-( dons, run • the church locally in these regions. • Some 50.000,000 of the world's half billion Catholics live in areas with no local hierarchy, or with a native church leadership still in the tad pient stage. The driving power behind this "colonial office' is Gregory Peter Cardinal Agagtanlan, the ener- " getic Armenian patriarch who. was listed by many ' as a prime Papal candidate after the death last I year of Pius Xii. ; Pope John.was elected, but he was delegated ex- ' tremely important church work to Cardinal Aga- gianian has a paradoxical job. He is actually moving to abolish bis own massive organization. It will not happen 'in his time, but the impetus is there - to remove gradually the •"mission" .label from large areas of the world and leave them in the hands of local diocesses run by native priests and bishops, and, if possible, by native Cardinals. The church moves slowly, but it Is as sensitive to changing moods in the world as any foreign office.- (li) Shock Theater - l .
