8IMLA. India, Aug. 26 (AP)
After months of indecision and
'h e a r t-s e a r e hingr." Mahatma
Gandhi announced today his "in
ner voice" has told him it would
le to India's interest for him to
go to London to attend the sec
end ronnd table conference.
At the end of almost three
tours conversation with Viceroy
Lord Wiliingdon, who left a sick
bed to see him. the Mahatma
agreed ' to cooperate with the
round table conferees in' bringing
India a step neirer her long cher
'.sbed goal of independence.
" His decision was 'based on an
attitude of "mutual accommoda
tion and compromise." The na
tionalist leader agreed to drop
his demand for the appointment
of .an arbitration board to deter
mine whether there hare heen
breaches of the Delhi armistice,
and the viceroy consented to tn
itttute an inquiry into the alleg
ed excesses of tax collectors in
the Bardoll district.
"Thus, after nearly 20 years ab
sence from England.. Gandhi will
sail Saturday for London with
Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya
and Mme. Sarojlnl Xaldu. ' also
delegates. He will reach his des
tination September 9. He will
take aboard his goats to provide
him with milk.
