Decisiotn of Five Noncooperation
Chiefs May Determine Future
of Their Country.
Mrs. Naidu, Gandhi, Jewaharlal
and Motilal Nehru Meet
Vallabhai Patel.
(By Associated Press)
BOMBAY, Aug. 14.-Out of a re-
markable gathering of captives to-
day, held behind the walls of Yer-
avada prison in Poona, may come
decisions of the highest importance
to the future of India.
It was a strange meeting, with
Mahatma Gandhi, leader, of the
civil disobedience movement, the
central figure. Around him were
a woman lieutenant, Mrs. Sarojini
Naidu, and three men who long
have been prominent in National-
ist activities-Pandit Motilal Neh-
ru, his son, Jawarhalal Nehru, and
Vallabhai Fatei. All are serving
sentences for acts in connection
with the noncooperation campaign.
Talk to "Peacemakers."
Part of the time their conversa-
tions were extended to Sir Tej Ba-
hadur Sapru and M. Jayakar, the
unofficial "peacemakers," who are
attempting to have the Nationalist
movement held up._
The meetings today lasted five
hpurs and no hint was given as to
what happened, but Sapru looked
grave when he emerged. Tomor-
row morning the five Nationalists
will meet again, with the two peace
emissaries joining them in the af-
Viceroy Lord Irwin is backing the
peacermove and authorizedthe
transfer of the two Nehrus from
Allahabad jail to facilitate the con-
Danger of Peshawar Over.
News from the northwestern
frontier was distinctly reassuring
to Europeans tonight, and military
men considered that immediate
danger to Peshawar, the city which
guards the Khyber pass and has
been under siege by 10,000 hostile
Adridi tribesmen, wasrover. While
the Afridis are reported to be
drawing away from Peshawar fol-
lowing rough treatment from
bombs of the royal air force, the
British realize that disaffection
may continue to spread among
neighbors of the Afridis.

Mosher-Jordan Halls, the new 1
dormitory to accommodate 450
women students, is virtually com-
pleted as far as the building itself
is concerned, furnishings are being
placed, and prospects for its being
fully occupied are encouraging, ac-1
cording to dormitory officials.
Terracing and grading has been
done by the Building and Grounds
Department and Mr. E. C. Pardon
stated that the sodding to surround
the dormitory would be done as
soon as there is some rain. Shrubs,
which will orient the building to
the landscape, will be planted in
the fall, as will the ground cover
on the slope in front of the build-
ing. A perennial flower garden will
be located on the south side and
future landscape plans include the
construction of a pool in the sunk-
en garden between the wings on
the terrace sloping to the Women's
athletic field.

to harmonize with the drawing

upholstering, drapes, and furniture
for these rooms have been especial-
ly selected.
The four dining rooms on the
floor below face the campus. The
tables and chairs will be the same
in both Halls, but the draperies are
