The executive committee of the powerful All-India Congress party rejected, point by point, Britain's offer of post-war dominion status in return for full war participation under.British direction, but it was reported to have advanced its own counter-proposals which might keep the discussions going. To Stay Longer Sir Stafford Cripps, Special envoy who brought Britain*s 'offer to India, changed his mind about leaving for home next Monday. He declared, instead, that "I think I can possibly do something useful next, week." Ke had before him already the previous rejections of Britain's proposals by the Sikhs, warriors of the Punjab, and by the extremist Mahashabha group of Hindus. Yet to be heard from formally, however, was the Mc.lem League, second largest of India's complex political and religious groups, whose working committee meets tomorrow at Allahabad. The text of the Congress party's rejection and of its counter suggestions -was not expected to be made public immediately. May Ask Concessions It was Intimated strongly how- iver, that the British \var cabinet might be asked to make some concession to the insistence of this and other strong Indian groups for an immediate voice in defense responsibility rather than acceptance of purely British leadership (.The Exchange Telegraph agency in London said Indian moderate leaders had received tentative assurance thai the formula for defense coordination advanced by the Moderate Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru would be acceptable to Cnpps. This formula was said to call for a minister of defense coordination with a small defence council including the commander- m-chief and presided over by a minister. The council would deal with civilian defense and internal security.) ise On Issues Arctic Convoy Wintry blasts and snowstorms on the north Atlantic and Arctic ^"f n make , fn | ld O VOrk °- 1 c - Qnvoy du 'y from Britain to northern Russian ports Evidence is ice-covered searchlight, above being tested by signalman aboard British cruiser. : A t right tars warm up to task of clearing ice from benesth the warship ? s bi« guns El Paso Physician's Naturalization is Ordered Cancelled EL PASO, April 2.

London made 'no- comment; but it has been obvious since the fall, of Singapore and the .Dutch Indies that a fresh challenge to British sea power was looming in the Indian -ocean. An Effective Screen. Japanese planes and submarines based in the Andamans could provide an effective screen fo-sdch a troop movement as Chungking reports. A brief air raid scare at Colombo, Ceylon,' across the Bay oE Bengal, indicates Japanese air scouting in that vicinity.:-Attends to confirm the Chunk'ging reports ments up the Burma coast of the bay.

April 2—If you for- gut to pay your 1942 automobile registration fee, it will cost you 20 per cent more. ... There i.s one loophole. County tax collectors have blank forms upon which late applicants can swear the automobile.has not been used since midnight last night. If you can make that affidavit, you get the J942 license plate at the usual cost. . Caused By Postponements A difference between the law requiring the annual-automobile license and the law punishing operation under an out-dated license has led to customary postponement of enforcement until Abril 2. . The licensing law permits issuance of new licenses without penalty \ip to midnight April 1. The law punishing unlawful operation penalizes violators ''on or after April 1." The offense is a misdemeanor, punishable by fine not to exceed ?200. . . Repos-is Not Received State highway department of- icials said they have no compilation of license payments for sev- eral'days;.wheri-rep6rts will be received from "/county, officials. Little decrease, if any. is expected in this year's initial reais- tration although one official said payments may fall off later if new cars-cannot be bought. Unless tire replacements become available before 1943, a slump in registrations is expected then. ' Col. Homer Garrison, jr., director of public safety, said' ho special round-up of cars without-1942 licenses has been ordered.
