''•'. LONDON, May ».—Many J3ngllah* then ar« gravely asking themselves these days, If Ohandi dies in prison, Whether he. will' not db tot fncUa.Wnat John Bfbwn did for the United States And the case of slavery, ffiveh In a Jan somewhere near toona the firitlsh hiasters only have his body locked up. His spirit goes marching on. Ghandi la not the cause of the unrest In India. He U simply the megaphone through Which the woes of the bulk of the 318,000,000 natives of India are proclaimed to themselves and the world. And India contains , one-seventeenth of all the wdrld's population. Britain's problem in India is a terrific one. Neither the United States nor any other world power ever has had anything like It to tackle. The bulk of the humble Indians give Britain the credit for some things it has done: a system of courts which give the lowliest unbrlbed Justice; a plan of canals which renders fertile lands that were formerly desert; a system of railways which permits India to Interchange products, a vigilant admlnstratlon which seeks to palliate famine by bringing foods to the needy. ,„ But all this Is a mere scratch on the surface of this vast aub-continont. The people of India—like people everywhere—blame all their ills on the British "Raj." The chances are that all 6r most of the evils from which the people suffer have come down the ages and are well-nigh insoluble. India is predominantly an agricultural land and the bulk of the people work on the land. India produces 64 per cent of the world's rice, 12 per cent of its wheat, against 13 from Canada and 27 from the United States; practically all of Its jute; 26 per cent of its cotton, 45 per cent of its flax and 40 per cent of its tea. And yet two-thirds of the people are underfed and it has been estimated that 40 millions do not know what it is to get one square meal per day. The average income of the bulk of the Indian people has been estimated at $26 per annum as against $150 in Germany, $160 in France, $250 in Great Britain and $360 in the United Statea. But that only tells part of the story. The bulk of those who work on the land are either tenant-farmers or laborers. And all of them are in the hands of the usurers, who fatten on them and get control of the b'ulk of the crops, so that often India is exporting agricultural products when vast districts are suffering from famine. The tenant farmer Is burdenen with rent to his landlord—and absentee in the cities —and with the land taxes levied by the British government in India. Often payment ot these sums is demanded before his crops are in. For ready cash he has to turn to .the native village usurer and pledge the crops that are still growing. And always at an outrageous rate of interest. In recent years there has been a considerable development of manufacturing industry in the bigger Indian cities. The lot of the worker in the city is no better than that of those who till the soil. There is a vicious system Whereby the sub-foremen in the factories have control of the enrollment of laborers. In the competition for places, the would-be workmen know ihey have to bribe trie sub-foremen. 'And after they get their jobs, they Ayles- president of the National Broad* casting Company, was A bill collector ' for the Colorado Medical Society.

Now they no lohget have this resource. Which fs Why Ghandl has put to the tore' two words which have become famous In* India—Swaraj and Swadeshi. By Swataj Ghandi means total home rule and independence for Jndla—IrtdiA lor the Indians. By Swadeshi he means economic independence. He wants the natives to boycott European goods and go back to the splnnmg wheels and the village Industry. He wants his people to cut all ties with so-called Christian civilisa- tion. He says the World war proved that the white man's civilization was hot Christian but Satanic. The millions have heard him. They revere hihi an a latter-day saint. Alive, even in prison,/ he is a great force. Dead in prison'near Poona, he would be an even greater force.

Many of these workmen come from the farms. They hope, to send part of their wages back home to help the wife and children. They become hopelessly involved aMd, directly, the wife and children move to town and are also working in the factory. The bulk of their wages go for food and a miserable place in which to sleep. There is little left for clothing. Ghandl, who knows all these things, blames. it all on western civilizatioi). He says that before the predatory white men came into India it sufficed for itself. It grew its own food. It manufactured for its needs. Industry was carried on in the homes and' small village shops. Then the white introduced the machine age.

Whlle the oil industry la struggling with its prob- conservation, there are to this business which many investors are giving no attention to. one of them is the new naturaj gas industry and the other is the subject of synthetic gasoline. Of course, there Is a great movement to conserve natural gds and It la being pushed In place with sotrte success. Enough gas Is blown off in Some fields in a few months to light. a city like New York for 200 years. In California, Oklahoma and. Texas real movements are accomplishing something to save gas and the commercial distribution of this will soon be an, accomplished, fact. But there is another phase of It and that Is the new : process of manufacturing . fertilizers from natural gas— a process which the famous I, Q. will use In Louislaria. It is understood that several large oil companies besides the Standard of New Jersey are interested in this. t .

If it is and If.otir petroleum deposits are ever exhausted w« will have in hand the means of extracting billions of barrels of gasoline from our coal. But the hydrogenatlon process Has an importance beyond this and of Immediate importance. At present by known cracking methods refiners get as high .as 66 per cent gasoline from crude. But the hydrogenatlon process can be applied to petroleum and by the Introduction of other elements into the petroleum it is possible to practically get iOO per cent and even more gasoline fr6m it. While the Standard of New Jersey owns this, it will form a subsidiary which will make the process available to the Industry on a royalty basis. The \vhole industry will benefit but it will be seen what the Standard of New Jersey wiH have with both its hydrogenation patents and its connections with the I. G. (Copyright. 1930, by U. P. C.
