MOMENTOUS YEAR FOR INDIA:
Changes in Political Structure Foreseen
By PRESTON GROVER
BOMBAY, Jan. 5-(A)-For India,
1946 promises to be the most mo-
mentous year in history.
There are several possibilities for
changes in the country's political
structure, and the full development
of any one would be a major histori-
Conceivably India might obtain
full independence in the next 12
months, or she might choose a slower
course and progress toward self-gov-
ernment through a constitutional
convention in complete and friendly
cooperation with Britain. She might
divide into two Indias-one governed
by Hindus and one by Moslems.
Might Be Revolution
And, if conflicts arose which frus-
trated the hopes and plans of In-
dia's political leaders, there might be
The end of World War II automa-
tically eliminated all reasons for re-
straining political developments long
held in check. Congress leaders,
jailed in 1942, were released, and agi-
tation for quick action to bring inde-
pendence to India boiled up to a pitch
not recalled by observers of this gen-
Viceroy Archibald Percival Wavell
made a final futile attempt to bring
the Moslem League and the All-India
Congress into agreement on the unity
of the country, or even on collabora-
tion in the central government.
Elections for the Central Assembly
showed that India's major parties
had split on religious lines to a
greater degree than had been antici-
"Rich Man's Election"
In the Central Assembly elections,
fewer than 500,000 of the country's
400,000,000 residents voted. It was
known generally as the "rich man's
election" because only wealthy prop-
erty owners and a small number of
others qualified under the limited
According to a tabulation by the
Times of India, the Moslem League
headed by Mahomed Ali Jinnah
polled 86 per cent of the Moslem vote
in Moslem areas, while in predomi-
nantly Hindu areas, the All-India
Congress Party candidates drew
nearly 89 per cent of the votes.
As a result of the elections, the
Jinnah followers argued that the
Moslem League was the sole organi-
zation with authority to speak for
Moslems, while Congress leaders con-
tended the League was composed
mainly of rich landlords and wealthy
The Congress Party contended fur-
ther that the provincial elections,
which begin this month and end in
April, will show that a wider elector-
ate, including many poor Moslems
will look to the Congress for leader-
Congress Party Leader Sardar Val-
laohai Patel predicts that "freedom is
"Perhaps we will get it next year,"
he said in December. "It is only nec-
essary to give one last determined
push to Britain. That push will not
be of any small section of people, but
of 400,000,000 people of India united
in a single resolve."
Englishmen with long experience
in India say, on the other hand, that
the Moslem League-Congress tug-of-
war will go on for years and that it
might be 10 to 25 years before any-
thing approaching self-government
could be expected.
Some observers predict that by
March there will be bloody uprisings
and that the full force of the British
Army still in uniform in India will
be required to suppress it, if sup-
pression is possible.
One usually good barometer of sen-
timent is the stock market. There
are no signs that British investors
in India are selling out at abnormal
rates in anticipation that the Indian
national government will render their
holdings worthless. For a long time
there has been a drift in that direc-
tion, with Indian capitalists purchas-
ing whatever British investors choose
to release, but the transfer rate dis-
closes no sudden panic.
Some American and British busi-
ness houses, especially those dealing
in automobiles and chemicals, seem
eager to increase their holdings in
India, indicating their belief in a
The Navy Bureau of Medicine and
Surgery has awarded Dean Russell
W. Bunting and the faculty of the
school of Dentistrya certificatetof
commendation, recognizing their
services to the nation in the V-12
Surgeon General of the Navy, Ross
T. McIntire, who issued the certificate
has also sent Dean Bunting a letter
of appreciation for his services.
During the war, 39 V-12 students
were graduated from the School of
Dentistry in three classes. Twenty-
eight are enrolled at the school now.
The V-12 students follow the regular
dentistry accelerated program.
The text of the certificate of com-
"The Surgeon General, on behalf
of the Medical Department of the
Navy, commends you for your splen-
did cooperation and outstanding con-
tribution to the education of Navy
V-12 dental students for appointment
in the Dental Corps of the Navy. You
have rendered a distinguished ser-
vice to your country during the period
of World War 2."
System Will Begin
FRANKFURT, Germany, Jan. 5-
(I)-Gen. Joseph T. McNarney dis-
closed today a new system of U. S.
Army redeployment from Europe un-
der which the release of men to go
home will depend on whether they
are essential in their jobs, and
whether replacements arrive.
Senior President Stresses Need
For Dues To Aid Organization
Arthur Brandon, President of the
American College Publicity Associ-
ation, has been appointed University
of Michigan Public Relations Direc-
Formerly with. Vanderbilt Univer-
sity and the University of Texas in
a capacity similar to that which he
holds here. Mr. Brandon has written
many professional articles on the
subject of public relations.
His office is now in the University
News Service on the second floor ,of
University Hall, but soon will be
moved to the first floor or basement
of Angell Hall.
The announcement that senior
class dues are being collected has
prompted questions concerning the
purpose and use of the dues.
It is customary for a graduating
class, stated Patricia Barrett, senior
class president, to establish a strong
class organization before leaving the
University in order to maintain its
identity in Michigan's vast alumni
body. By providing this organiza-
ticn with funds, the class can better
sustain the contacts and friendships
made on campus through class let-
ters and reunions.
The Class of 1946, Miss Barrett
said, will hold its first reunion in
1951 and again every five years.
Dues are now being collected from
all seniors in the literary college from
9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 3 p.m.
Youth Group Plais Hike
The Youth Hostel will sponsor a
hike beginning at 3 p.m. today under
