He- has been in India six years where he has seen the struggle between the natives in India and the English. "This passive resistance is- car rying out their slogan, 'India fo Indians'- 1 ', s a l Mr. Wolle. "Th laws are mostlj m a d e , by th English author! ties or under English s a n e Lion," he contin ued. "A few o the m o r e e n lightened, when arrested for some civil disobedience, ask why H. R. WOLLE they should be held under laws they had no part in making. With more' than three- fourths of the 300,000,000 people illiterate, the vast majority easily follow any leader,'. 1 he said. "If hundreds upon hundreds make up a mob who persist in producing their own salt, upon which the British government has imposed a tax, or weave cloth, also taxed, or cut down trees, which is prohibited, the policq are helpless and are often beaten or killed, if the mob persists in parading thru the streets which is prohibited by the British lav/ft, it offers no outward resistance but quietly sits down in the street, blocking all traffic until the mob decides to move on. "An outbreak here, another in another section, will mean that Greab Britain will be compelled to put a standing army in India and Englishmen will have their hands full. Under the plan now followed by : the Indians they will pay no more taxes until they are given the privilege of running their own affairs." . ·· - · Mr. Wolle continued, "Because of the menacing white ant, all buildings and the .interior of all buildings must be made of masonry or teek wood. Wooden poles cannot be used in carrying telephone wires but must be placed i n ' conduits underground, which is cheaper than using steel poles."

Take the cast of "Reducing," for example, the new Marie Dressier-Polly Moran comedy which will continue at the Cecil thru Tuesday. Marie Dressier had to take lejsons from a. masseur in order to learn the correct beauty parlor technique. Anita Page, playing a cashier, found it required practice to play a cash register .with deft professional accuracy. Lucien Littlefield, mail-carrier husband qf the buxom .Marie, carried his' right shoulder strapped down in order to give the effects of years of toting heavy bags 'of letters. And Lucien, too, had to learn how to shore an accomplishment which he swears he had never before practiced.
