Nationalist Leader Remains Free
in Spite of Growing Threat
of Immediate Capture.
First Judicial Sentence Is Passed
on Violators of Monopoly;
. Proves Severe.
(By Associated Press)
BOMBAY, India, April 7.-Three
of Mahatma Ghandi's chief, lieu-
tenants in his civil disobedience
campaign against the Indian gov-
ernment and many local leaders
and volunteers in different Indian
districts were under arrest tonight
as the aftermath to the Mahatma's
overt violation of the salt monop-
oly on Dandi Beach yesterday.
The Nationalist leader remained
at liberty and in spite of the scuf-
fle that took place between his fol-
lowers and the police near Dandi'
today, announced that he would
come in person tomorrow to collect
salt with the volunteers.
Ghandi May be 'Arrested.
Rumors at Bombay gave the im-
pression that Ghandi's arrest was
iminent, and that he might be tak-I
en into custody -when he goes to
the beach tomorrow.
Several minor encounters occur-
red at widely scattered points be-
tween Ghandi's followers and the
police. The only situation that,
threatened danger was a clash be-
tween police and workmen in the
Mysore gold mine, near Bangalore,
which was not directly connected
with the civil disobedience cam-{
There were 50 casualties in the
clash. Striking workers, number-
ing 6,000, stoned officials and were
fired upon by police. A squadron;
of lancers and police reinforce-
ments were despatched to the
mines which are about 200 miles
west of Maaras.
Aides Get Prison Terms.
The first judicial sentence of any
severity that has been passed on
violators of the salt monopoly was1
meted out today at Madiad, one of
the towns where Ghandi stopped on
his march from Ahmadabad to
Dandi. The magistrate there im-
posed terms of two years impris-
onment and fines of 500 rupees,
(about $180.00) on Gokaldas,a
Dwarkabas, Darbar, Gopaldis, Me-
nichal, three of Ghandi's ablest
aides who gathered salt in the
Kaira district.y
Today was Ghandi's weekly period
for silence and meditation. He was
therefore not present when the
police made a descent upon volun-
teers collecting salt on the beach,I
but came down soon afterward
from Dandi, which is close by.
With only a few tickets remain-f
ing for the Union's third annual
all-freshman banquet, to be held at
6 o'clock Thursday night, sale of
bids will continue at the main desk
in the Union lobby today and to-
morrow, according to Robert W.
Ackerman, '31, chairman of the
underclass department of the Un-
ion which is sponsoring the func-
tion. Tickets may also be obtained
from officers of the freshman class
and from Union committee mem-

bers and tryouts.
On Thursday night, at the only
affair of this nature held during
the school year, Intramural medals
will presented to each of the mem-
bers of the team which won the,
Union's freshman basketball tour-
ney which was played off about a,
month ago. The medals will be
awarded by Duane Baldwin, '32,'
leader of the winning team.
Henry Moser, of the speech de-
partment, will give the principal
talk of the evening. Joseph A. Wit-
ter, '31, assistant chairman of the
underclass department, will act as
