In his new position, Emmons

Too late for blue-nose sailing
and too soon for ice-boating, the
Michigan Sailing Club meets ev-

First the iceboats are checked

One by one, the boats are trail-

The one-man4ce boats are read-

He became the first untouch-
able ever to hold such office when
chosen in January to succeedl
Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, who had,
been elected president of the gov-
erning Congress Party.-
To Ignore Caste
Although Sanjivah's selection
has been hailed throughout the
nation as an indication of how
things have changed in India, he
emphasizes that caste, or lack ofc
it, will have nothing to do with the 1
way he runs his office.
"My masters are the 31 million'
people of Andhra," he said in an
interview, "not Andhra's 41/ mil-
lion untouchables or the 60 mil-
lion untouchables of India."
He cautioned, nevertheless, that
the Untouchables "are the weak-
est links in the national body poli-
tic and the strength of a chain
lies in its weakest link."
Choice Significant
The selection of Sanjiviah to
top political office is significant:
for social and political reasons.
Technically, the practices of shun-
ning untouchables and assigning
them only the most undesirable of
tasks has been outlawed. In prac-
tice, particularly at the village lev-
el, the practice flourishes.
Sanjiviah's rise to high office
may contribute to rolling back
such discrimination, which is one

of the avowed aims of Prime Min-
ister Nehru and the Congress
Importance also attaches to law-
yer Sanjiviah's selection because
he is an able politician, and in
Andhra, more than in most states,
the Congress Party is in desperate
need of new and able leadership.
