NEW BRITISH LAS
Ordinances Put Life Penalties
on Subversive Acts
Mahatma Retains Belief That
Parting of Ways Has
LONDON, Dec. 4.-(P)-Mahatma
Gandhi, in a farewell interview be-
fore his return to India after the
secondi roundtable conference, de-
clared he regards the new British
government ordinances in Bengal
"as a cause of war unless they re-
main on paper and are not en-
The new ordinances, promulgat-
ed last Monday, give the Bengal
government power to impose sen-
tences of death or life exile upon
persons convicted of subversive acts
against the crown.
The measures were decided upon,
it was stated at the time, after
it became apparent that the ex-
treme Indian Nationalists would
not achileve their demands at the
roundtable conference, creating the
prospect of a new fight for Indian
"Legalized Martial Law."
Ordinary laws, the Mahatma
said,. would have been adequate
for dealing with the Bengal situa-
tion. "These areunworthy of a
strong civilized government."
Asked for definite decision on
whether he would renew his civil
disobedience campaign when he
returns to India, the Mahatma
"I have had further talks with
Prime Minister MacDonald, Sir
Samuel Hoare and others, but I
have heard nothing to cause me to
change my provisional opinion that
we have reached the parting of the
ways." In any event, he said, the
decision will rest with the Na-
The congress, he explained, would
be justified in instituting civil dis-
obedience in given districts if the
Natonalists were unable to obtain
redress by other means.
Fears Ordinances Effect.
"The terribly repressive ordin-
ances introduced by the viceroy in
Bengal, however, may upset all cal-
culations," he added, "and may
precipitate civil disobedience, even
on a national. scale. We cannot
stand by and see a whole province
emasculated by such measures."
He said he regarded the confer-
ence as a "complete failure," but
that his coming to England was
decidedly worth-while. "My work
outside the conference has been far
more valuable to me than my work
inside it," he said.
The house of commons indorsed
the government's policy on India
Thursday night by a vote of 369 to
43 against an amendment offered
by Winston Churchill which would
have committed parliament against
extending further, dominion status
in India as it is now defined.
The government's policy, as an-
nounced by the prime minister at
the close of the roundtable confer-
ence Tuesday, calls for eventual
establishment of a federation of
autonomous provinces and states

Mayor Takes Stand of Year Ago
in Regard to Communist
WILL LET THEM TALK'
Traffic Rules Are Only Barrier
Which Radicals Must
DETROIT, Dec. 4.-(AP)-An out-
break of hostilities between Com-
munists and police after more than
a year of quiet has brought from
Detroit's young red-haired mayor
a declaration that he still believes
in free speech and that any one
who has anything to say can say
it in Detroit.
Mayor Frank Murphy, who at-
tracted national attention last
spring with his "let them talk"
policy, wants the world at large
and the Communists in particular
to know ghat it's a matter of traf-
fic regulation that brings on fist
fights and broken heads.
Schmies Serves Sentence.
So while John Schmies, Commun-
ist leader and perpetual candidate
for mayor and other offices, was
serving the first day of a 60-day
term for fighting policemen, Mur-
phy announced regulat ons which
he declared "preserve the rights of
free speech and free assembly.
The regulations effective today,
distinguish between large demon-
stration meetings and small, im-
promptu gatherings. The latter will
not be regulated at all. If any one
feels the urge to make a public
speech, he can go ahead and make
it, provided he doesn't block traf-
fic or infringe on the rights of oth-

"If I didn't have that tagged
onto me, I could get away without
all th~is fuss."
'Mrs. Biddle will leave next week
for Alaska on a trek that will take
her alone-save for a guide and
17 dogs-to a point nearly 500 miles
north of the last outpost of civil-
ization, to get material for a book.
It will be her first book, and she
is somewhat flustered over all thel
publicity it has received before she'
has even started out to get the ma-
"I didn't know it wts going to
be like this," she said. "I thought I
could get away without any fuss.
Suppose the whole thing is a fail-
Ure-then, won't I feel foolish?"
Mrs. Biddle, daughter of a weal-
thy Philadelphia lawyer and wife
of a member of one of Philadel-
phia's oldest and most prominent
families, is going on this trip, she
said, for two reasons.
First, because she likes the nortkg,
"where all the men are he-men,
and the dogs bark at strangers."
And secondly, because she wants
to do something.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 4.-(A)-
Gov. W. H. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray,'
the victor in fights to curb over-
production of Oklahoma's oil fields
and to open a free bridge spanning
the Red river between Texas and
Oklahoma, figuratively has rolled
up his sleeves again.
This time his objective is an.
early election for voters of the state
to pass upon four of the seven
measures in his "reform"program
which was spurned by the legisla-
ture last winter. Opponents charg-

The 'Alfumnus' Features
Permit Not Necessary.
A meeting planned in advance,
moreover, does not require a police
permit. The mayor believes that
the permit to hold a meeting was
granted by the constitution- of the
United States, but he wants the
authorities to know when a meet-
ing is to be held. All that is ne-
cessary is that the police commis-
sioner be notified if the meeting
is to 'be inside the one-mile circle
(from the 'city hall). Outside the
circle, .only the police precinct in-
spector need be told.
Grand Circus park, in the cen-
tr of the shopping district, how-
ever, is banned. It was in this park
that Communists on two recent oc-
casions battled police. "Due to the
area available - and the peculiar
conditions of traffic," Murphy said,
permits must be obtained for meet-
ings in that park. The mayor gave
out a long list of other places Where
gatherings may be held.
