The l.horney issue of India's freedom is being pushed to a showdown, will] grave hul unpredictable consequences. On Friday of this week, Indift's congress p;\rly meats to vote on Gandhi's program for a- vast sit- down strike. Only a British offer of Immediate independence for India apparently can head off this cH'ppNhg step. The crisis is doubly tragic, because Japan is poised to pounce upon a paralyzed India— if Gandhi carries out his threat. Such a blow would strike an In. dia bound in invisible chains.
