India is constantly being mis-
represented in the American press
by correspondents looking for "re-
ligious excesses" in an attempt to
find sensational news material,
according to A. C. Sekhar, native
of India, in the States as visiting
lecturer at the University of Penn-
Sekhar, currently studying at
the University, told the Daily that
"one need not single out India to
find religious fanatacism and su-

HE POINTED out many super-
stitions and taboos he has found
in this country and on the cam-
puses of colleges and universities.
"Dozens of my American
Sfriends with university educa-
tions are concerned with the sal-
vation of my soul," Sekhar de-
clared He is of the Hindu faith.
Sekhar illustrated this when he
declared that one of his friends,
an archeologist, recently present-
ed him with a four-leaf clover,
which he accepted.
ANOTHER THING the East and
West have in common is a devel-
oping educational system, which
Sekhar said will play an important
role in magnifying India's posi-
tion in the world.
"Education and economic de-
velopment are closely related,"
"At present, the Indian Govern-
men is attempting to introduce
mass education and modern me-
thods in agriculture and industry,"
He indicated that great strides
have been made toward agrarian
and industrial development and
the elimination of social evils gen-
erated by the caste system.
"India has already taken her
place among the free nations of
the world and is making herself
felt in international affairs," he

The plastic, "polythene," stimu-
lates the growth of new body tis-
sues, operating doctors explained.
IT WAS used to prevent the rup-
turing of a large blood-filled sac
formed as result of a weakness
in the wall of the main artery
which carries the blood from the
heart throughout the body.
The sac had "ballooned" to
such large proportions that its
continual pulsations had eroded

The broadcast will be directed
by Prof. Joe Calloway, head of
a three-inch hole completely
through the patient's chest
bone, according to the surgeons.
At the time of the operation,
the mass through the hole in the
bone had formed a bulge directly
under the skin about the size of
a tennis ball.

USING the new plastic, the doc-
tors hoped to grow the new tissue
to decrease the opening from the
artery to the blood sac. If this
could be done, the maroirity of
the blood would be routed to its
normal channels, cutting off nou-
rishment to the sac, the doctors
Reduction of the blood sup-
ply would eventually form a
blood clot at the sac's entrance,
cutting off the blood supply
completely, the doctors added.
When the patient was admitted
to the hospital, she was in ex-
treme pain and unable to lift her
elbows to shoulder level. The sac
had grown so large that it had cut
off the supply of skin surface
blood, causing skin discoloration.
DOCTORS SAID that- normal
time for tissue to form as a result
of stimulation by the plastic was
three to six weeks, but in two
weeks the patient's condition was
improved enough for her to be sent
Two months later the sac had
reduced by a third and the pa-
tient was much improved.
Her latest checkup recently,
three months after the operation,
indicated that the sac had receded
below the hole in the chest and
new bone had begun to grow over
the hole's opening.
The patient's condition had so
improved that she no longer had
any shoulder pain and was able
to perform light housekeeping du-
ties, the doctors declared.
MOLINE, Ill.-/P)-A foul smell
choked seven towns early yester-
day sending some residents into
hysterics and raising fears of a
Russian gas bombing.
, But the culprit apparently was
only a passing truck.
The noxious odor crept through
Moline, East Moline, Silvis and
Rock Island, Ill., and then spread
across the border into Muscatine,
Bettendorf and Davenport, Ia.
* * *
NO INJURIES were reported
aside from upset stomachs.
Some residents called police in
hysterics. One man insisted to
Silvis police that "the Russians are
flying over and gassing us."
An official of the Iowa-Illinois
Gas and Electric Co., said the
odor probably resulted from a leak
in a tank of pentalarm being haul-
ed through the area on a truck
Pentalarm is an odorant used to
inject a smell into natural gas,
normally odorless, to permit de-
tection of leaks. The official said
the odor is not injurious but can
Several taverns in Silvis and
East Moline lost their patrons in a
hurry when the smell entered.
