Mann .Demands
Militant Stand
Of Democracy
Author Declares America
Must Proclaim Herself
To Stop Totalitarianism
(Continued from Page 1)
German Naziism was characterized
by Dr. Mann as the "most radical,
unrestrained and destructive assault
against humanity the world has ever
seen." The misdeeds of the Nation-
al Socialist revolution, Dr. Mann
maintained, lack any possible human
sanction.
"To defend itself in a world rapidly
giving way to totalitarianism, de-
mocracy," the greatest conservative
power in the world today," must place
increasingly more emphasis upon the
basic unity of freedom and equality,"
Dr. Mann said, "and must evolve a
system of social justice in which the
needs of the individual and society
can beharmoniously balanced."

Smoking in University Buildings:
Attention is called to the general rule"
that smoking is prohibited in Uni-
versity buildings except in private of-
fices and assigned smoking rooms
where precautions can be taken and
control exercised. This is neither a
mere arbitrary regulation nor an at-
cempt to meddle with anyone's per-
sonal habits. It is established and
enforced solely with the purpose of
preventing fires. In the last five years,
15 of the total of 50 fires reported, or
30 per cent, were caused by cigarettes
or lighted matches. To be effective,
the rule must necessarily apply to
bringing lighted tobacco into or
through University buildings and to
the lighting of cigars, cigarettes, and
pipes within buildings-including
Huge Garnet Contributed
To Geology Department
A hundred pound garnet specimen
was recently contributed to the Geol-
ogy Department and put on exhibit in
the Natural Science Building. Despite
the unusual size of the stone, its
value is comparatively low, the mater-
ial being used more for abrasives than
gems.
The 'rock in which the garnet is
imbedded was presented by the BehrI
Manning Corporation of New York.
The specimen weighs 1700 pounds.

such lighting just previous to going
outdoors. Within the last few years
a serious fire was started at the exit
from the Pharmacology building by,
the throwing of a still lighted match
into refuse waiting removal at the
doorway. If the rule is to be enforced
at all its enforcement must begin at
the building entrance. Further, it
is impossible that the rule should be
enforced with one class of persons if
another class of persons disregards it.
ft is a disagreeable 'and thankless
task to "enforce" almost any rule.
This rule against the use of tobacco
within buildings is perhaps the most
thankless and difficult of all, unless
It has the winning support of every-
one concerned. An appeal is made to
all personis using the University build-
ings-staff members, students and
others-to contribute individual co-
operation to this effort to protect
University buildings against fires.

request of the Conference of Deans.

Gandhi Has Crusaded 40 Years
To Liberate India's Untouchables,

' i

II

A

F ----

By JAMES FRANKEL
Frail, aged Mahatma K. Gandhi,
the "Abraham Lincoln" of India, last
week won another victory in his 40
year crusade to emancipate India's
Untouchables.
Historians trace this caste system,
which enslaves more than 60,000,000
people, to the migration of Aryan
tribes into India through the Kyber
Pass 3;000 years ago' In an effort
to maintain a "pure" race, the Aryans
forbade any intermarriage. Four main
castes developed; the Brahmins, to
pray and conserve all learning; the
Kshatryias, to fight; the Veishyas,
to till the soil; and the Sudras, or
Untouchables, to serve. In time the
caste system became fixed and was
even indorsed by the Hindu faith as
a religious institution.
To the outsider, the lot of these Un-
touchables is almost unbelievable.
They are only allowed to work which
is considered shameful. They cannot
marry out of their caste and their
children are Untouchables from birth.
They are even forbidden to use the
public water supply since they are
believed to "pollute" by touch. The
upper caste Hindu, meeting an Un-
touchable on the highway, orders him
off lest his unclean shadow cross the
caste man's path.

Born in 1869, the young Gandhi
son learned to hate the upper caste
with which he was closely bound as
is father was the Prime Minister of
state in Western India. He studied
law in London but his practice in In-
dia was a complete failure.
Moving to South Africa because of
a good opportunity he quickly became
successful there. After the Boer War
he became interested in reform and
for 20 years he led a movement which
culminated in complete success.
Early after the turn of the century
he returned to his native land, a
national hero to head the powerful
Indian National Movement and cru-
saded for the emancipation of 'the
Untouchables. In 1913 he suddenly
conceived his most effective weapon,
the hunger strike, and has used it
ever since. After the World War, his
movement got out of hand and a
wave of violence swept India for
which he was imprisoned for two
years. After his release, Gandhi again
resumed his struggle for a people en-
slaved in a bondage and although
much has been done there is still a
long way to go for a people enslaved
in a bondage which has been called
"one of the most terrible engines of
tyranny and oppression which human
ingenuity and selfishness has invent-
ed."
