ton Safujlnl. Naidu, Wealthy, Orator and Mother Directs Revolt With ad Much Base aft She Manages Offices. By ERNESTINE EVANS, Written for NBA Service. NEW YORK, June fl.-^-thousanda of Americans laat year' had the opportunity to hear Sarajinl Natdu, the Indian poet and orator, who now succeeds Mahatma Gandhi, and the diplomatically chosen Stbhammedan Abbas TyabJI, aa the third leader of the present Indian nationalist demonstration against British rule In general and the salt tax In particular. In public last year she. spoke from end to end of the United States and Canada, reading her poetry In one of the most surpassingly sweet and resonant voices of our time, lecturing on the ancient high estate of Indian women and their present day awakening, making friends for herself and her native land and defending her beloved India from the too widely distributed unpleasant picture of conditions there, "Mother India." Mahatma Gandhi had chosen Madam Naldu to undo the damage the book had done, and by her very presence, she gave Americans a new slant on India. A Brahmin woman, one of the few to have married out of her caste, herself educated In England and the mother of two daughters, graduates of Oxford, she had an astonishing command of the English language. Words rolled from her in the manner of the great Victorian parliamentary orators who in turn had learned the lessons of Cicero and Demosthenes. But no one who heard her in America can completely judge her eloquence. Here she was careful to avoid in public all reference to the completely revolutionary character of the Indian nationalist movement. She spoke in social and historical terms, not in the fler^ language of political slogan turned by a great poet. Those who heard her flve years ago at Cawnpore,' when she was elected president of the Indian National congress, under the big tent of hand- woven cloth, where 15,000 delegates from all parts of India had gathered, remember her words: "How shall I kindle the flames that shall wake you men from slavery?" And again: "You men, what are you but cheap Imitations of models' from the Occident?" The ; measure of her words reminded Americans of Patrick Henry. The great \crowd, with red, green and white pennants, marking 'the Hindu, Mohammedan and Christian sections of the delegations, was visibly moved when she introduced herself with, "I, who have rocked tho cradle, I who have Bung sweet lullaibles." Always,.she takes her place as an old woman, a wise and strong woman, with one of her daughters constantly fife* ft fflst till? * rifiUfe* «* P»P<rt> r «v«n tttmagoglc oratory. She is fa- tttttil In Lohdan tut her tHt **« ft' partee. Shb*tty ftefrrt* Lord Reading became Viceroy 6t India, he met Madam Naldu at A fashionable dinner party and was charmed by her. "I shall hope to see you often In Delhi," he 8>ld, bending over her hand In parting. Mme. -Naldu smiled. She knew that a viceroy In London and In India were two different people, and she also knew that an Indian nationalist may be a distinguished poet and diner-out In London, but must reserve all her time and loyalty and contacts for her own people when In India. "I think you will see me not all," she replied to the astonished Reading. Sarajinl Naldu .Is In many ways a complete contrast to Mahatma Gandhi. She Is a more sophisticated/politician with experience In reconciling divers points of view and the conflicting power-seeking personalities around her. She has often blunted the sharp edge of revolutionary movement in her efforts to preserve a united front of sects and classes. Yet she Is absolutely loyal to Mahatma Gandhi, whose purity and fanaticism are the flame of the movement. She knows quite well that spinning of cotton by hand Is a great political and spiritual gesture for the Indian people. Master of language though she Is, she knows that deeds, not words, can weld a political movement, and that In this way alone can a simple people demonstrate' against the evils of foreign owned capital and the, machines of the Manchester and the Bombay mills. But she also knows that once n iwmithy. fh* eolbr and texture fe her silken safl* are rich and lovely, and Kef bangles and ear rings are beautiful specimens of the Indian jeweler's art. She was a memorable figure in the Algonquin liotel in New York last winter, where she made her American headquarters. But few people noticed her clothes once they had been caught by the directness and lustre in her eyes, nor after they had seen some snatch of her executive ability. She Is famous for the skill with which she can manage offices, campaigns, press interviews, and the British have a right to be worried about her generalship of the present movement. Of her two brothers, one Is a revolutionary exile, resident In Berlin, and the other is a poet, like his slater, Who has this winter been lecturing and reading before American colleges.

During the course of restorations, the plaster was removed from one of the walls of the church and a handsome fresco belonging-to the Umbrlan school of the early 16th century came to light. The mural painting measures about seven feet by seven, and the general state of preservation is fairly good.
