guest at a Red Cross Board
Nigam has been touring Lincoln
as part of a two-month tour
through the United States. After
leaving Lincoln, he will go to St.
Louis, Mo., Washington, D.C., and
then to Geneva, Switzerland, to
attend an international Red Cross
advisory council meeting.
In an interview Nigam said
that co-operation between the
Red Cross in the United States
and in India has been steadily
growing. India's closer co-operation
with the United' States is
not, however, a result of her
independence from Britain.
Political relations, he explained,
do not affect Red Cross relation
ships. India's Red Cross organization
is now an effective, well-organized
group, growing steadily since it
was formed 20 years ago. Emer
gency relief and health programs
have been stressed. Maternity
and child welfare, hospital wel
fare and ambulance work have
been other activities.
Nigma stated that he was
amazed at the wonderful .work
being done here on the University
campus and that it was the same
everywhere he went in the United

was raised from 65 to 150 in 1935.
