Move Over - Springfield Leader, USA, 1930.

Gandhi reached Dandi on April 5, and soon after prayers the next morning he broke the salt law by symbolically picking up a lump of natural salt from the seashore. This was the signal for civil disobedience on a national scale. The Government retaliated with severe, brutal repression. Gandhi was arrested on May 4. Great sympathy for the Satyagrahis was aroused in many countries, and among those who expressed support for Gandhi was Governor Al Smith of New York State, the Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States in 1928.
