ASKS tJ.S. MARKET J. A. Koss (P.C., Souns) had ask- ed the minister to consider re-open- ing the United States market to Canadian beef cattle producers so they could take advantage of that "great market." Mr. Gardiner recalled the oppo- sition in 1942 when the government decided to prohibit exports of beef cattle to tne United States and said the action vas taken to ensure a supply of meat in Canada -while she was shipping pork products to the United Kingdom The govern- ment had been "much concerned' about the decision it had to take.

FOUR WOUNDED Two bombs exploded in Jew- ish stores in Beirut last night, causing heavj damage and wounding four hut else- where there was tense quiet. Police and troops took extra- ordinarv precautions against any outbreak of violence and Prime Minister Ismail Sidky Pasha of Egypt, accompanied by an armed escort, toured the streets of Cairo, alert for any sign of trouble. Most Cairo shops were closed and tramcars were not running. Military vehicles toured the streets and the citv was placed out of bounds for British troops.

The Left Hand Corner. No Indians In India A Possible British Pre- Hint. PARADOXICAL, as it seems there are no Indians in In- dia More than natives live there, but not one of them will call him or herself an Indian. This cunous fact is revealed, as the St. Thomas Times-Journal points out, in an article in the cur- rent number of the National Geo- graphic Magazine by Peter Muir. The people of India speak 23 dis- tinct languages and 250 dialects, and when they are questioned, or registered, the} speak or describe themselves as Hinaus, Moslems, Sikhs. Parsis. Brahamans, Marts ar- is, Fatnans, Rajputs, Kashmiris Punjabis, even Untouchables, but never as Indians Mr. Muir, who is an American sues some string illustrations of tne difficulty of trying to govern India. There never has been a united India and probabij never can be. Tne Hinaus lorm aocut half the Dopulauon, but ujil not sit at the same table as mem- bers of the other half. There is r.o common crothernood tneia as between a man from Maine and a man from Wyoming, or a man from Ontano and a man from A'berta Thej may not understand each others language, and even people in the same community can nave irreconcilable dinerences of rel.gious and tribal beliefs. Where village water is drawn one well will Water for Hindus" and an- other "Water for Moslems" Mr. Muir states that, in common %itn manv fellow Americans he was un- der the impression, until he visitea Indw, that Ganom .-poke for all the people in Indu. then he realized the racial barrier, between them The numerical .J inferior racial groups recogmzf that it is only the of Great Britain that keeps them from being permanent- ly subjected to domination by thp Hindu majority, and they are more strongly opposed to Hindu ruie than to British rule The} aie at least assured equality of treatment by the British That is vvhv, for la- THE LEFT HAND (Continued on Page 13.)
