Alter a month of argument about Hansen's remarkable activities, concluded by a Building Committee investigation, the board yesterday adopted a resolution providing that "no individual not authorized by this board or the architects shall have authority to contact contractors or supply men." A few minutes later Tilton, Schwanewede & Githens, New York architects for the building, announced the appointment of Hansch to their staff and his assignment as inspector to the half -completed edifice. KNOX CITES 'SUSPICION.' Freeholder Andrew Knox, the first official to criticize Hansch's presence on the construction project, cast the only dissenting vote against the appointment. He had objected to Hansch, Cliffside Park electrician and intimate of .firmer Senator Ralph W. Chandless, on the grounds that he i created an air of "mystery" and "sus picion" about the building. The architects did not disclose what salary they will pay Hansch who previously received his compensation from Col. Orison M. Hurd for acting as his personal representative. Hurd Is chairman of the building committee that conducted the so-called investigation of Hansch's activities. . Members of the building committee, Hurd, Freeholders Samuel Alexander and Benjamin Dansen, approved both resolutions. They pointed out that no complaints have been received by them from any contractors or workmen concerning Kurd's personal representative. BARROWS FILES SUIT. Allan M.

GANDHI WEAKER AS AGREEMENT CRISIS LOOMS Spur Electoral Negotiations to Save His Life SPEED NECESSARY j iBv Associated Prpssl Poona. India, Sept. 22 Mahatma j Gandhi, already weakening after the first two days of his "death fast." faced the crisis of his struggle with the British Government today. : "It's today or never!" said G. D. ' Birla of the Hindu Emergency Com-j mittee, which has been trying to j bring about a compromise over the problem of the electoral rights of the depressed classes, the cause for which the Mahatma entered upon his starvation fast Tuesday. In the "condemned" cell of Yeroda Jail to which Gandhi was moved yesterday because it offered more commodious quarters for the many visitors who came to see him, the spare and emaciated leader of India's millions continue to squat cross-legged on a webbed cot but his voice was growing weaker when the last of his callers left him last night. The committee was putting forth every effort oday to bring about a compromise agreement which would satisfy Gandhi. The members were spurred by the belief that whatever Is done must be done quickly if the Mahatma's life is to be saved. MACDONALD MUST ACT. Whatever agreement is reached must then be submitted to Prime Minister MacDonald for the approval of the government. Gandhi's friends fear that in his present condition he will not last long if his fast is continued. Dr. Bhimrao Ramjl Ambekdar, leader of the 60,000,000 untouchables, planned to visit the Mahatma again today following another meeting of the emergency committee. Certain of his compromise DroDosals alreadv have been approved, but there are ! several counter-proposals which still " Japan, win raise are. have to be considered. 1.

The hour was late, however, and since there were still many points to be settled before the plan Is submitted to Gandhi, it was possible that an adjournment might be necessary.

' FRAUD CHARGED IN BUILDING OF NEffAIRPLANE Principle of 'New Type' Branded 'Bologna' by Experts GET COURT ORDER The principle of the airplane which will fly like a bird now being built at ; Teterboro by the Gray Goose Airways. Inc., was branded as a "lot of bolog-1 na" by Gill Robb Wilson, director of ' the New Jersey Department of Aviation, and the company must show I cause Tuesday why it should not be i restrained from dealing in any securi ties in or from New Jersey. The order was signed by Vice-chancellor Backes in Newark this week. Application for the order was made by Assistant Attorney General Robert D. Grosman who charged fraud in the sale of stack. The order is based on alleged violation of the blue sky law and is also directed at Jonathan E. Caldwell, secretary-treasurer of the concern, and Mrs. Olive E. Caldwell his wife, who is president. They were directed to show cause why a receiver should not be appointed to liquidate me company. Wilson's letter to Attorney Oeneral William A. Stevens said: "I understand they are selling this stock at ten cents a share and have moved from town to town promoting it. They claim to have some new idea in aeronautics, but the idea is really of little moment except to suckers who never had an Idea of their own, OUTFIT 'GYP' PROPOSITION. "In my opinion, the principle, deducting from the part I saw to he employed, is a 'lot of bologna' and the uuuiv is purely a gyp- proposition. "I went up and looked It over and interviewed the wife of the so-called Inventor and talked with a number I of other hlRh pressure gentlemen, who nave reaucea the five and ten cent principle from Woolworth to Walling-ford. I believe there Is necessity for an investigation of the activities of these people." In exchange for Caldwell's patent, 51 per cent of the capital stock of the company was voted to him, Grosman said. But the stock was never issued to him because "the defendant company never had money enough to pay for the internal revenue stamps required to be affixed to the certificates of the stock. A flapping wing type of plane was constructed by Caldwall for the company at a cost of $15,000, the complaint said. But It had a lifting power of only two or three lnchen and its wings fell off after flapping tt iiw times. wext the company authorized Caldwell to use corporate funds to duuq several other types of nlanei. including one to be motivated by a motorcycle engine and another to he nnn.or.rf h . powered by a Ford engine. Nothing came of either of these models the attorney general said. MONEY WASTED IN WEST. Another $27,000 of corporate funds was wasted, Grosman charged, on construction of a plane by a West Coast building contractor named John V. Janln. This machine known as the "double action reciprocating wing type," was patented by Janln, the bill recited, and Janln assigned the patent to Gray Goos In return for a contract to build one of these planes. Since coming to New Jersey In February, the complaint stated, the defendant concern haa begun construction of a new type plane known as a "rotor wing type." This machine Is not yet completed, the bill stated, but arrangements have been made with J. Steinberg & Sons of 740 Frellng-huysen Avenue, Newark, sheet metal contractors, to construct the plane. It is this plane which the company has been building this Summer at TeUrboro ln one of the Fokker group of buildings. In the early part of August, one wing was completed and several props for the cabin were ln place. According to plans two wings were to run lengthwise on top of the ship. These wings had an arrangement of wooden " feathers" which Caldwell claimed was the sw-ret of bird flight. JUST LIKE A BIRD. The machine was to be powered by a Henderson motorcycle enrjlne and was expected to fly by arising straight In the air by revolving these wings and then coasting downwards without movement. A few turns of the wings by the engln at Intervals was to return It to altitude, 1 mTbrr of the company explalnrd. It wrs to go a hundred miles to t gallon of gas and to revolutionize air trvI. nrrnrrilnff to the company. I Stock.
