Madame Gandhi Is an
Active Leader Among
The Women of India
"Madame Gandhi has earned her
leadership," said Mrs. Frederick B.
Fisher in an interview yesterday,
"not only because of her illustri-
ous husband but through her tre-
mendous sacrifices to the cause of
Indian freedom." Mrs. Fisher had

among the Indian women. She was
one of the 3,000 persons who
marched from Natal to Transvaal
in an effort to free the indentured
Indian slaves in Africa. At that
time they were living at Phoenix
in a cooperative community.

with her husband in a small group
of about one hundred and fifty
families which are drawn together
because of spiritual and political

You were the tiny child she held in her

What could be more fitting than for you

to remember her on your birthday with the loveliest gift
