Division of A. A. U. W.
at Luncheon.
Explains Low Age of Marriage
in India Based on Social
Caste Organization.
Jagadish Chandra Chatterji, of
Kashmir, India, and a noted Hindu
philosopher, addressed the mem-
bers of the International Relations
group of the A. A. U. W., yesterday
at a luncheon held at the League
building. The topic of his speech
was, "Modern Life and Problems
in India with Special Reference to
"India has many difficult and
serious problems relating to wo-
men," stated Pandit Chatterji,
"Though women in India are ideal-
ized and idolized by the Hindus,
in the practical working out of this
philosophy there are many abuses
in the system. The need for the
removal of these abuses, which have
crept into society, constitutes one
of our greatest problems."
Women Supreme in India.
Dr. Chatterji continued with a
discussion of the seclusion of wo-
men in certain parts of India. He
then told his audience that despite
this seclusion and the abuses, wo-
men are held as supreme in roles
of mother, wife; daughter, and sis-
"It is the female aspect in the
Hindu religion which accounts for
this supremacy of women," contin-
ued the philosopher, "while the
male principle is static. The uni-
verse moves because of the "danc-
ing goddess," as the female aspect
in our philosophy is called."
"Another one of our problems is
the education of women to modern
things but not letting them lose
sight of the ancient ideas in Hin-
du philosophy."
Explains Low Marriage Age.
"Hindus believe that nothing is
super-natural, but all isnatural
according to law, therefore, as pro-
miscuous marriage is dreaded, the
lesser of two evils was chosen," said
Pandit Chatterji in explaining the
low marriage age, which is based
on the caste system. The speaker
stated that the caste system as a
social organization is a fine thing,
but is terrible because of the abus-
es. Therefore to preserve the social
order and to raise the marriage
4ge becomes another 'of India's
Pandit Chatterji concluded his
talk by saying that the help the
Americans are giving Hindu stu-
dents and also other co-operation
they can give will, in the end, help
India to solve these problems. "For,"
he said, "the world is round men-
tally, morally, and physically and
the women of the Occident and the
Orient cannot live independently."

activities and interested in trying
out for the Northwestern debate

evening at 7:30 in room 3209 Angell
Mall, according to Floyd K. Riley,
