American Attack On Post-War 
British Trade Designs 

(From Our Corresponden O 

LONDON. July 15 
In a letter to Sir George Nelson, 
President, Federation of British In¬ 
dustries, the American National For¬ 
eign Trade Council makes a trench¬ 
ant criticism of Britain's post-war 
trade plans 

The Council has released the text of 
*t§ tetter to Sir G. Nelson which in¬ 
dicates that then. 1 is a wide gulf 
growing between British and Ameri¬ 
can business interests which 1$ caus¬ 
ing concern in official circles in Wa¬ 
shington The letter takes up the 
issue with the Federation of British 
industries on its report of interna¬ 
tional trade policies declaring that 
Britain was tending "towards nation¬ 
alistic trade poliev of the Type she 
pursued betore this war Ir is gene¬ 
rally agreed here OJnited States ) 
that conflict between British and 
American business thought is accen¬ 
tuated by this tenon The minimum 
requirements of the Federation reoort 
are planned economy f6r control of 
prices imports and exports within 
a quota svstem which rejects 
the kLm of United States for 
reciprocal trad*\ agreements In 
the short federation report is 
considered a hichiv national¬ 
istic document—carefully developed 
argument for making it possible for 
Britain to have her normal amount 
of business even without the financial 
background to handle it as she had 
ill the past The reports basic con¬ 
ception is that Britain should have 
*n Increase of fifty per cent in ex¬ 
perts and the suggestion tha f Ame¬ 
rica should reduce her exports/ 

The National Foreign Trade Coun¬ 
cil which represents the vast bulk of 
American exporters, advocates as 
counter-proposal the rescript ion of 
world hradc on the basis of free en¬ 
terprise and free ani unfettered ex¬ 
change of goods be+u'een nations 
Without Government interference 
Referring to the proposal to estab¬ 
lish sterling areas f he Council's let¬ 
ter declares that "this is opposed to 
the Atlantic Charter and to the basis 
of lease-lend agreements and Is In 
tiarmonv with the theorv of cartels 
and monopolies which U had been 
designed to exclude in United States/'

Provinces and establishment of Cabinet Government in the Centre 
or to continue to govern India autocrat icy”—this is the choice that 
Mahatma Gandhi's offer has presented to Britain. 

This is the conclusion reached bv Mr. H. N. Brails ford. There 
could be no graver mistake than to stick on to the latter policy,

except M Reynolds News", Sunday 
papers refrain from commenting oh 
Mahatma Gandhi's declarations. 

Analysing Gandhij is offer Mr. H. 

N, Brallsford In "Reynold's News" 
points out that when Mahatma Gan¬ 
dhi makes up his mind to act. He 
does it boldly. Mr. Brailsford be¬ 
lieves that to-day by a startling 
change of front Mahatma Gandhi is 
prepared to go back to the Cripns 
offer and accept It. Considerations 
of prestige have been brushed aside 
Ite launrh^d his revolt and suffered 
defeat. Few men in this too emo¬ 
tional world would be capab^ of a 
change of front which is so realistic, 
and rational. 

It is hard to feel sure that Mr. 

Jinn ah wants a settlement of any 
kind So far he has declined to show 
hir. hand In effect he has rejected 
Mahatma Gendhi's offer It will be 
deplorable and discreditable to British 
staternnr'ihip If the matter docs end 
here, Britain carmor go on ever using 
the extremism of the Muslim League 
as excuse for postponing Indian set¬ 

Mr. BralLsford continues: "Mv own 
firm belief is that if Mr. Amerv and 
Ixtrd Wavell made it known that w? 1 
wish to form * an Indian National 
Government the Muslim League 
cmffd not continue to obstruct. If 
M r Ra jagopalachari cr any rmre suit¬ 
able person is entrusted wi*h the 
formation of what should in fact be, 
if not in nam^ a Cabinet, I am mo- 
rallv sure that Mr. Jinnah couldn't 
refuse to Join It. He can play his 
wrecking game only because such a 
Government is not visible, but in the 
possibility of which India as believe. 

But before the National Govern¬ 
ment can be formed there are at 
least two preliminary steps which 
outfht to be taken Since the revolt 
is long since at an end, untried Con¬ 
gress prisoners ought to be released. 

So soon as ff3 Working Committee 
can m^et again, it ought to withdraw 
the "Quit India" resolution, There 
are ways of doing that without Insin¬ 
cerity or loss of dignity. The next 
step is manifestly that Representa¬ 
tive Government should be restored 
in the Congress provinces 

The contrary policy is to govern in* 
dia autocratically until the end of 
the war, Then we may revive the 
Cripps plan In some new form. We 
could make no graver mistake than 
this It is the way to destroy any 
lingering belief that Indians still ro- 
tam in our honesty of purpose. We 
have at last the chance to put it

Indian Division's Feat 




tFrom Our London Correspondent) 
Mr George Bernard Shaw has se¬ 
cured relief for the authors He had 
ncentiv written to the "Times'’ com 
plaining that authors were compelled 
to pay income-tax on ihe whole am 
ount receive^ in a single year trom 
the sale of the copyright of their 

works although the compilations 

may have taken 3'ears to prepare 
When Sir John announced the 1m 
portanI tax concession to authors he 
referred obliquely to "certain emi 
fient writers/' Th? House, of course, 
cried “Shaw? Shawl" in delight. 

At present a writer might work in 
poverty for years and then sudden! \ 
find one of his books successful. He 
may get a bi£ cheque for royalties 
and perhaps another for film rights, 
bui the tax collector does not allow 
him to treat these sums as the pro 
ceeds of a sale of property, until 
now such income from books was 
reckoned as current earnings in one 
year and the author had to pay in¬ 
come-tax and perhaps super tax at 
the full rates as if he regularv re 
ceived such an income, though he 
might well Oe penniless again the 
next year Now Sir John has de 
eided to spread over three years 
lump sums received for copvright 
This will enable the author to receive 
at least some return for tte- capital 
investment he has made. Mr Shaw 
told reporters that it was gratifying 
to find his suggestion ma<te in the 
•■Times” proved acceptable “O! 
course " he added, ‘it is only a res¬ 
toration of what used to be a nor 
maJ practice of averaging incomes 
over three years But all the same it 
is very pleasant ”

Italian Partisans Fight 

CHIASSO, July 17: The 'commu¬ 
nique' from the Italian Resistance 
Movement for Sunday states that 
patriots on the Riviera are fighting 
against the Germans unceasingly 
with the support of the population. It 
states thar this si I nation has had a 
great repercussion on the war indus¬ 
try in Liguria where production has 
been reduced to the minimum. Vio¬ 
lent demonstations took place near 
Genoa, German forces opened fire 
on a crowd r causing several victims.

Indians Cut Vital Highway 

NEW DELHI, July 17: It is now 
announced that the cutting of Route 
Five, the vital Italian highway, was 
an accomplishment of the Eighth In¬ 
dian Division after a week of hard 
lighting against an enemy determin¬ 
ed to hold out at all costs. 

To get astride this Imoortant high¬ 
way the division was given the task 
of seizing an area bounded bv the 
town* of Arsoli. Rocca di Botte and 
Riviano, The advance, a model of 
its kind, was carried out by successive 
brigadrs passing through one another 
with all the support at the division's 

Accordingly one of the Indian In¬ 
fantry brigades started off with a 
New Zealand armoured regiment in 
support, arid Veroh was occupied by 
a battalion of the 13th, Frontier 
Force Rifles. Here another Indian 
infanlry brigade passed through, 
struck north ai^ captured Vico and 
Collepardo, the latter falling to the 
5th Roval Gurkha Rifles. 

Now came the turn of a third In¬ 
dian Infantry Brigade, The fifth 
Mahratta Light Infantry took Guar- 
cino after a fierce fight in which the 
enemy suffered many casualties and 
left 40 prisoners In our hands The 
same battalion followed up this sue* 
ccsk by occupying three more town¬ 
ships two days later. 

After another ’'leadfrog*' movement 
of two brigades, Subiaco fell to the 
Frontier Force Rifles, assisted by a 
Canadian armoured regiment. The 
"Pi Acts” infiltrated into the town 
so quickly that the enemy were un¬ 
aware of their danger for some time. 
Their survivors only just managed 
to escape. 

Further advances were now delayed 
owing to demolitions and the blow¬ 
ing un of a bridge across a chasm on 
ihe road leading to the town. Big 
the divisional sappers got busy and 
performed a magnificent feat of mili¬ 
tary engineering by opening up the 
road two days after the capture of 
Subiaco A few hours later the high¬ 
way had been cut and the assigned 
area cleared of the enemy,—A P.

A Likely Move

front and the gateway to Kessd-

rican Fifth Army altogether at a

new that very soon the Germans and 
the Allies will be facing each other 
on what is called the Goihic Line 
But *he Gothic Line is by no means 
the last line of German defence. 
Beyond it there is the far stronger, 
because natural defence line of the 
Po in northern Italy Obviously a 
frontal assault cannor carry General 
Alexander across Italy in good time 
to be of direct assistance to the 
grand assault on Hitlers Heirti. The 
presen' strategy suits the Germans 
because they can contain the Allied 
Mediterranean armies in Italy. That 
is why another move against the 
Germans is indicated And the like*

-Japan Alarrrod 


We considered on Saturday 
tome of the objections urged 
against Gandhiji's proposals for 
a settlement with Britain. We 
shall consider tc-day the main 
objections advarva against Ra 
Jajl's propcsals for a settlen-ent 
w:th the Muslim League. The 
task is made appreciably easy by 
Raiaji's own statement replying to 
his critics. At the outset we must 
state clearly how we understand 
the proposals. We du not under¬ 
stand them to mean that the 
separation of predominantly Mus¬ 
lim areas from Hindustan is nor¬ 
mally a good plan and is offered 
to Mushms as such and that 
these who offer it will ail support 
separation before and at the time 
cf the plebiscite. As a matter of 
fact one of RajajLs proposals dis¬ 
tinctly says that it will be open 

to all parties to advocate their 
paints of view before \b? plebis¬ 
cite is held. We and many others 
who support the proposals under¬ 
stand them to moan that, if after 
free unfettered discussion of the 
‘pios* and ‘eons* cf separation, 
the Muslim a.eas declare for 
tepatalien, they will not bo coerc¬ 
ed Into joimng the Indian Union 
In other words, we commend 
sjlf-determination as being better 
than forced union. We note, with 
many chhers. several disadvan¬ 
tages Ui separation and are free 
to explain them whenever neces¬ 
sary. But we concede, as we 
thiLk we must. t*v right cf large 
•au-as to separate it tNv so de¬ 
fine. £ epilation Is an evil to be 
avoided if possible. But if for 
any reason it is found necessary 
by the areas in question. it is bet¬ 
ter conceded as a lesser evil than 
forced unity which Is no unity at 
all We concede now the princi¬ 
ple of self-determination. If it 
leads to voluntary union, it will 
b? ?n ideal solut/cn, If tt leads 
to Pakistan, we shall accept it as 
better than ih^ alternative, civil 
war, Rajaji himself admits that 
^world tendencies arc towards in- 
trg.anon rather than sub-d vi¬ 
sion, an*j the wisdom of uniting 
Into big spates and larger units, 
and thereby gaining strength. 
Increasingly patent” Eut, he adds, 
“these points should be put be¬ 
fore the peoplo to consider at the 
plebiscite, This has been provid¬ 
ed for in the scheme. To put 
them forward now as arguments 
f :r denying the very right of relf- 
dcterm'nation Is to perpetuate 
distrust and. as a result. maintein 
the Hindu-Muslim deadlock and 
British domination over India/ 1 
Many will agree with Rajaji 
that "apart from ths Mahasabha's 
uncompromising attitude, Gan¬ 
dhi] i*s acceptance cf his scheme 
has b?en widely welcomed/' This 
is not surprising, For as Rajaji 
himself points out, "it is perfect¬ 
ly consistent whh the Congress 
position as it has been repsat^dly 
set out," The next question is 
about the reaction to it of the 
Muslims in general and the Mus¬ 
lim League in particular. Natu¬ 
rally enough, the proposals have 
been hailed with delight by many 
Muslims Including Muslim Leagu¬ 
ers, Indeed, many regret that 
the proposals wen? not directly 
placid before the League Working 
Committee. Rajaji explains that 
"without Mr. Jinnah's personal 
support, piacmg it (the scheme) 
before the League Working Com¬ 
mittee and disposing of it with¬ 
out reference to the public would 
have been unfair to the public and 
hardly done justice to the 
scheme." Ngw that the proposals 
have b?en befgre the public for 
some time, they may well be con¬ 
sidered by the League Committee 
and other bodies interested in the 
subject. In this connection it is 
extremely interesting to learn 
from Raja Maheshwar Dayal that 
RuiajPs proposals are substantial¬ 
ly similar to the specific demands 
made by Mr. Jinnah himself in 
the negotiations that the Maha- 
sabha had initiated with the 
l eague and other political bodies. 
If so, it is certainly curious that 
Hr, Jinnah did not accept Ra- 
jaji’s proposals. However, we 
shall soon know how the League 
Committee under his lead will 
deal with the proposals. L£t us 
hope he and the League will re¬ 
cognise the wisdom of tg&ihg the 
tide at the flood*

io rhe Congress view should be a fe¬

I claim that there is nothing in this 
c la use of t he r esolut ion that is f ' ex¬ 
travagant" or impracticable. The con¬ 
cluding sentence pioves in mv opinion 
the sincerity and non-party character 
of the Congress, And as mere is no 
partv in the couniry which Is not 
wholly anti-Fascist. anti-Nazi and 
anti-Japan it follows that a Govern¬ 
ment formed by these parties is bound 

a year previously it had been pro- 
claimed under Mr. Gandhi's olders io 
be a J sin to help ihe war with men 
or money. can it by denied ihat these 
men saw iheir opportunity m Britain's 
danger and believed that the psycho¬ 
logical moment for the enforcement 
of their political demands must be 
seized while the fate of the United 
Nations hung in the balance and be* 
fore the i ide of war turned—if ii w’as 
ever going io turn—in their favour' 
The answer to these two questions is 
lefi io the reader/' 

I have lo answer these two ques- 
lions boih as reader and accused. As 
to the first quesiicn there is no ne¬ 
cessary inconsistency between the ge¬ 
nuine belief that an acceptance of the 
Congress demand would help ihe 
cause of (he United Nations, i.e,, of 
democracy all the w ? or!d over, apd a 
mass movement which, moreover, was 
merely contemplated) to paralyze the 
administration on non-acceptance of 
ihe Congress demand. Ie Is submit- 
ted that the attempt "to paralyze the 
administration" on non-acceptance 
proves the genuineness of the de¬ 
mand. It set& ihe seal on hs ge¬ 
nuineness by Congressmen prepat mg 
to die in the attempt to paralyze an 
administration ibai thwarts their will 
io fight rhe combine agains! demo¬ 

Thus ii is the administration’s dead- 
set against the Congress which 
proves ihe hollowness of hs claim that 
It is engaged in a fight for democra¬ 
cy. Mv firm belief is that ihe admi- 
nis<ration Is daily proving its ineffi¬ 
ciency for handling the war in ihe 
right manner. China is slowly pin¬ 
ing away while the administration is 
playing at war-handling, In the at¬ 
tempt to suppress the Congress It 
has cut off the greatest source of help 
to the millions of China who are bo~ 
ing ground down under the Japanese 

44. The second question hardly de¬ 
mands a separate answer. Congress 
men who proclaimed a year ago under 
my "orders" that it is a "sin" to help 
the war with "men or money" need 
not be considered here, if I give dif¬ 
ferent "orders”. For me* I am as 
much opposed to all war to-day as I 
. _ was before a year or more. I am but

been a fundamental plank with the 
Congress from its commencement. Its 
President is a Muslim divine of world¬ 
wide repute, especially in the Muslim

second chapter as follows:— 

"Whether the authors of the resolu-

compunction about inviting those who 
seek my advice to throw themselves 
heari and soul into the effort to help 
ihemselves and thus deliver from

volves military train ing, the people 
will be free to take it, leaving me and 
those who think with me our own 
non-violence. I did this very thing 
during the Boer War and during the 
last war. I was a '"good bov" then, 
because mv action harmonised with 
ihe British Governmeru’s wishes. To¬ 
day I am the arch enemy, not be¬ 
cause I have changed but because the 
British Government which is being 
tried in the balance Is being found 
wanting I helped before, because I 
believed in British good faith, I ap¬ 
pear to be hindering to-day because 
the British Government will not ac>

them. My answer to the two ques¬ 
tions propounded bv the author may 
sound harsh, but it i s truth, the whole 
truth and nothing but the truth as

*My plan”, argues Gandhijt, “con* 
templates a q immediate recognition 
oi lull independence for India as a 
whole subject ro limitations for the 
duration of war to meet the require¬ 
ments of Allied operations" 

Thai is the fundamental defect, we 
might say danger, of the plan, It 
contemplates what is, and must be. 
simply uncon tempi at® bk\ 

# * * 

In a recent statement Gandhiji 
suggests l hat “il is a serious ques¬ 
tion for the Government to consider 
whether it is a necessary part of 
the w p ar effort to wound the spirit 
of young men and women/’ 

He needn't have used the qualify¬ 
ing word young." 

But it is surprising ihai Gandhiji 
of all men should betray such Ignor¬ 
ance of an obvious situation Hav¬ 
ing had to suffer Sir Reginald Max¬ 
well and Sir Richard Tottenham 
more than any individual in India he 
ought lo know tl. such serious 
questions were considered and decid¬ 
ed upon long ago 

# # # 

"If" says Rajaji "w* accept the 
argument of the Mahasabha the re¬ 
sult w'fii be undoubtedly continuance 
of the deadlock and of British rule 
for all tune." 

So what? 

# * * 

"It is difficult" Rajaji urges, "to ap¬ 
preciate the slops I nave taken un¬ 
less there is some sympathetic Ima¬ 
gination " 

Rajaji's plea to Pakistanis and 
Akhand Hindustanis is based on m 
wrong assumption. Why does he as¬ 
sume the possibility of the existence 
of any imagination? 

#- * ■* 

tn ihe opinion of a greatly daring 

Muslim Leaguer, 'factions will go on 

and flourish till a real constructive 
programme is before the League." 

Which, of course, is all bunkum. 
What more do the vast hordes of 
Muslim League officers and men want 
than the doubly constructive pro 
gramme of denouncing the Congress 
and saving "Yes. Leader"

there was no hurry for the decision

Cotton Committee fully appreciated 
the toad situation and the Govern¬

ever, the floors and ceilings mention¬ 
ed in the press note are object lvablc 
for more than one reason. As a matter 
of fact, the floors offered last year 
were themselves very low and were 
accepted at that lime under proteat. 
The current year's floors have ndverse- 
iy affected the cultivators of and the 
merchants dealing in short staple cot¬ 
tons, and the coming year's floors and 
ceilings are similarly going to affect 
the growers of and dealers In the

many cases some of the proposed

However, ihe most important point 
that i a to be emphasised is the eco¬

not gone down as compared with that 
of last year, Secondly tht coai oi 
cotton production lias consideraly 
gone up owing to high prices of bul¬ 
locks, agricultural implements and 
labour. On the other hand, cotton 
pricey have gone down by 68 p. c From 
this, It can be seen that there is no 
scope whatsoever for reducing the

pared with those for the current

■ The opposiilon of the Hindu Ma- 
hasdblia it^aderia to any Congress 
League settlement on the basia of 
self determinarion lor the predomi¬ 
nate lv Muslim areas is nothing sim 
prising or new. The Ntahasabhu's 
opposition must be taken for grants 
ed. It cannot be met by any terms 
acceptable (o the Muslim League. If 
He 1 we accept the arjrumen* of the Ma- 
hasabha. the result Will be undoubt¬ 
edly the continuance of ihe dc?adlock 
and of British rule for all lime. 

+ ’Tiie real question is, whether a de^ 
pendent status and authoritarian 
rule from Delhi and Whitehall are 
be tier than a settlement under the 
scheme proposed If (he Muslim Lea¬ 
gue and the Congress agree to this 
nr to any other scheme, not even 
the imperialism of British Tories can 
successfully resist the Indian de. 
mand for independence, 

*‘It Is difficult to appreciate the 
steps I have taken, unless there is 
some sympathetic imagination > 
have used my utmost capacity ;*nd 
patience towards a settlement by pri¬ 
vate negotiations. It is now two years 
sine? I started work Even thougn I 
had secured Gandhriis unqualified 
personal support to the scheme, and 
it conceded all that Muslim League 
had aver demanded in its resolution 
of 1940 or could hope to claim be¬ 
fore the bar of world opinion. I 
found Mr Jinnaii unwilling to give 
his personal support to it. 

11 What could I do thereafter by wav 
of private negotiations, and with 
whom was I to do it? I beseech ed 
Mr, Jlnuah to give more thought to 
it The terms of my letter of April 
17, 1944, are now before ih ■ pubi c. 
No rcplv was received to this letter, 
although three months have passed. 

“It was no small thing that I had 
offered. Mi Juinah had before him 
Thp maximum trn* Congress or na¬ 
tionalist India could agree tu And 
what is more, I offered it witL Gaiv 
dhiji's powerful moral support. li

This Company during 1943 re¬ 
ceived a business of over Rs. 21 y 2

substantial increase of Rs. 4 lacs
