By R. J. HENDRICKS'
INDIA remains for Britain the outpost of empire. One by
one the colonies settled by men from the British isles
have been accorded independent status in the commonwealth
of nations making up the British empire. Canada (do you
recall the school geographies which called it "British Amer
ica" forty years ago?); Australia, New Zealand, South Af
rica, Ireland are now linked together only through a common
Sovereign and through the imperial conference. India re
mains a colonial dependency, and forces stirring in India
against the British raj are causing grave concern to British
officials and to the British people.
Mahatma Gandhi, eminent leader of the Indians oppos-
ed to foreign rule, has now notified the British viceroy, Lord
Irwin, that he will launch the policy of "civil disobedience"
by which he hopes to drive the British out of his country.
This means non-obedience to British-imposed laws,, non-payment
of taxes, and other forms of non-military resistance
to British authority. This has long been the program of
Gandhi, under the other name of "non-cooperation" which
it is feared would not remain peaceful but instead wouldl

precipitate armea rerjeuion.
At the close of 1929 the National Congress of India was
held at Lahore. This was an assemblage of the men who are
striving for. complete national independence. This congress
set up the aim of immediate independence, but postponed
action pending a conference with the viceroy. At this con
ference held at New Delhi, Lord Irwifjwept so far as to
sociates; but they demanded dominion .status
thing Britain dares not grant.
Despite the self-confidence in Indian self-government
. hich the foreign educated young Hindus possess, independ
ence for India would mean the releasing of bitter internal
strife. It would light the fires of religious frenzy, of class
consciousness if revolt against the caste system were work
ed up, and all the ancient hatreds which long have divided
the inhabitants of India. The independent princes' whose
principalities embrace a large percentage of the population
are dependent on the British raj for their protection, and
they oppose independence. The Moslems, whose numbers
run far into the millions, oppose the rule of the Hindus which
rationalism would impose; and the great mass of the Hindu
poople, ignorant and illiterate, have no vital interest in in
dependence save as they may be stirred up by the agitators;
The danger to India is summd up by J. L. Garvin, a
noted British publicist, writing -recently in the London Ob-
server, as ioiiows : chamber of commerce. Then the

UNEMPLOYMENT AND TITE
Senator Wagner in his move
for an inquiry Into unemploy
ment may be prompted by a po
litical motive and a desire to em
barrass the administration. But
the situation Is one that is going
to demand attention. It cannot
be solved by police clubbings of
unemployed marchers, even it
some of the marchers are radical
led. In Seattle. Portland and Los
Angeles, as well as in half a dox
en eastern cities, there have been
recent demonstrations by people
demanding work. Something bet
ter is demanded in such a situa
tion than denouncing communists
and mauling malcontents. The
government cannot at once solve
the problem but it can at least
face the situation frankly.
Ton can't preach order and
morality successfully to men with
empty stomachs and whose famil
ies are feeling the pinch of want.
They are more prone under such
conditions to listen to those who
shout to them, however mistak
enly, that there is something
wrong in the general scheme of
things. That is where the chronic
soapbox orators come in. It is a
situation wholly to their liking
and ready made to their hand.
Communists in the United States
are but a comparative handful
among our population. That is
because there has been no real
discontent among us. For those
who will work there has been
opportunity to work.
The administration and con
gress will be making no mistake
if they give some attention .to
the problem of unemployment. In
Its potentialities It Is a problem
more Important than the tariff,
more important than foreign re
lations and fully as important as
any other single question now
before the country.
