News of British Action
Prompts Hindi Leader
to Break Fast
POONA, India,--Sept. 26-OP)--
Mahatma Gandhi, inspired by news
that the B r i t I s h government at
London had approved most of the
compromise plan on the privileges of
Indian untouchables in legislative
elections, broke his "death fast" of
protest this afternoon. He broke his
fast at 5 p. m., India time (6:30 a.
m., Ann Arbor time). He had ab-
stained from food six days and five
The decision of the British cabi-
net in London was announced ear-
ly this morning after a meeting
which lasted until nearly midnight
and in which Prime Minister Ramsay
M]cDoiiald participated.
The news was cabled here im-
mediately and was met with great
rejoicing. At Simla the halls of the
Indian legislative asembly echoed
with loud cheers and a similar scene
took place in the council of state as
the announcement was made.
Gandhi had a bad night. He slept
little and physicians who examined
him this morning said he was sink-
ing and his vitality was lower than
at any time since he began his fast.
Gandhi was examined by two pri-
vate physicians and three from the
staff of 'Yeroda jail, where he has
been a prisoner since last January.
The bulletin said he was feeling less
nausea, however, and was suffering
no acute discomforts.
Today was his day of silence and
he did no spinning. Sunday he
spun, as usual, but he was so weak
the threads kept breaking continual-
ly and those who attended beside the
bed in the prison yard had to assist
