FRIEND OF GHANDI The SC educator is a friend and , co-worker of Mahatma Ghandi j and in 1937 wrote a book about the Hindu leader, “Ghandi, the Saint ! as Statesman.” . . . Within a short time after pub- i lice tion of this work, the publishers received requests from British German, and Indian printing he uses for permission to put out editions in their countries. Hossian's book presents a picture of the Nationalist movement among one-fifth of the population of the world and also sets forth Ghanil's plan for world reconstruction. The book contains a message from the Indian statesman, saying: MAKES LECTURE TOUR “Here is my message. There is no escape for man or woman, black or white, or for the East or the West except through innocence (nonviolence* and truth.” Hossian, who has traveled and studied extensively in India and Europe, is noted for a number of books that he has written. H» has been making a lecture tour ah mt the United States and has addressed various educational institutions on ihe- subjects of world affairs and oriental literature. Debaters Compete in Final Contest Finr.lists will compete in the annual debate contest next Tuesday in Touchstone theater at 3:00 p.m. under the direction of Harry West, manager.

Those who will compete in the debate are: Vivian Clark. Ted Bell. Lee Hodge, Karl Kappel. WTar-ren Lane, Edward McDonnell. Seymour Vinacur, and Raymond Rees. CHIRCHILL CALLED ‘MADMAN Master of one-third of Europe after driving the British from their last foothold on the European con- j tinent. Hitler boasted of his light- | ning Balkan conquests and warned that • madman and fool” Winston Churchill that the Nazi luftwaffe will give Britain 100 bombs for one. He avoided direct reference to the United States and its arsenal of democracy, but he berated the "democratic agitators” abroad who are trying to crush Germany and asserted that no pool of industrial power was vast enough to halt Germany’s march of conquest. ‘‘When today democratic agitators of countries to which the Germans have never done any harm threaten to choke our state with force by their capitalistic system and material production, I answer that we will never again witness a 1918 but' will rise in ever-higher achievements,” he shouted from the opera house's swastika-draped podium. NAZI POWER LAUDED “The German reich and her allies at present have power, militarily, economically and above all morally, which is superior to every conceivable coalition in the world. *T look to the future with perfect tranquility and the greatest confidence.” Foreign observers, disappointed in the speech, found no clue in it to Germany's next war moves, noted that Hitler made no reference to a possible invasion of the British isles and saw indications that Hitler is doubtful now of an early victory. Hitler Address Lightly Regarded WASHINGTON, May 4 —(U.E) — Adolf Hitler’s address was regarded in official circles here as primarily intended for home consumption and unlikely to affect this nation’s policy of supplying all-out aid to Great Britain and her allies. Officials withheld public comment but pointed out privately that the Nazi leader merely reiterated a position which he had adopted early in the war. They did not appear to be impressed by his threat to drop 100 bombs on Britain for every one released on Germany. They said they believed that this country’s answer to Hitler's outburst lay in the president's speech today at Staunton. Va. Mr. Roosevelt said bluntly that the United States is ready once again to fight, if necessary, to preserve its freedom.

ROPE DISAPPEARS Four events had originally been scheduled for the brawl, but after the grueling 3-1 push-ball battle it was found that the rope intended for the tug-o-war had disappeared, no sacks were available for the sack race, and tl)e weary contestants couldn’t summon up any enthusiasm for a water war. The festivities began under cold, foreboding skies with the announcement of Carol Morrison, Alpha Chi Omega, as freshman queen, and Jacquie Williams, Alpha Gamma Delta, and Joan Mclnnis, Delta Gamma, as her two attendants. The sophomore queen was Beverly Royston, Delta Delta Delta. TEAMS LINED UP The two squads were lined up at their goal lines by Tom Eddy, Knight president, and were each composed of 25 of the heftiest members of the ’43 and ’44 classes that could be found. A grand melee followed the signal to rush for the ball, which was placed in the center, and players constantly were dropped beneath the feet of the other contestants by flying blocks and tackles. Constant bickering about the number of men and the inequality of the teams distances from the ball marked each halt in the proceedings. and the sophomores were awarded a technical goal at one point because of the number of enthusiastic freshmen that rushed from the sidelines to help their cause. CONTESTANTS TIRE Scattered bodies gave Bovard’s turf somewhat the appearance of a battlefield during the rest period, for immediately upon the signal to stop all contestants dropped on their backs wherever they were and awaited the continuance of play in prone positions. The coveted gold trophy was not to be found when the frosh had finally shoved over their third and winning goal, but a brief search by several freshmen unearthed its hiding place and it left the field under the protection of a heavy frosh guard. ’ • Block Expects Full House Every Night; Quartet Sings Today A sell-out is what Mort Block, play productions manager, expects for all performances of the all-U show, “The American Way,” by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, when the production opens at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. “Tickets for the Saturday evening performance will probably go first,” he said. “This means that any group wishing blacks of seats should make their reservations as soon as possible.” Block added that cast members may obtain their block reservations from Herb Sussan.

World Needs War With Mars Fuller Says Invasion Would Create Unity A Martian invasion would be the most beneficial thing for the world at the present time. Dr. Benjamin A. G. Fuller, professor of philosophy, contended Friday at the joint luncheon-meeting of Phi Eta Sigma and Alpha Lambda Delta, freshman scholastic honoraries. “Such a hypothetical invasion would create a world consciousness, because the world would then have to unite to fight back against a common foe for the first time in history. Then, and only then, could we have a true world com- j munity,” the philosopher said. GEOMETRY BLAMED Dr. Fuller blames Euclidian geometry for the present world crisis: “Remember that one of its axioms is that two things cannot occupy the same space at the same j time.” He maintained that the self-interest of nations is ther only motivating spirit.
