M' " dSnHh s i # Franco Army Is Within 30 Miles t Of Loyal Capital Taragona Falls To Rebel Army As Defenses Mass ^ At Mediterranean City HENDAYE — (UP) — The Spanish loyalist government to- day rushed reinforcements of a 0 great defense line around Bar- celona as insurgent armies of Generalissimo Franco pounded up the Mediterranean coast and across the Catalan hills to with- £ in 30 miles or the capital. The fight for Barcelona with probably 750.000 men particirat- ing appeared likely to he the greatest battle of the Spanish § civil war. Rebel field headquarters re- ported their armies were near the fortified loyalist city of Igualada on the Lerida-Barcelo- na highway only 30 miles from the capital. A swift attack by rebel troops moving up the val- ley from Borjas and the capture of Cervera made possible an at- tack on Igualada, the insurgent messages said. At the same time, fleets of rebel planes bombed and mach- ine gunned civilians who were fleeing from the falling city of Tarago...

Halfback Ward Cuffs field goal with five minutes to play turned the trick. A crowd of only 15,000 sat through a dull first half which ended with the teams tied 3-3. Then Slinging Sammy pitched the. all-stars out in front with two passes which gained 80 yards and a touchdown. The Giants marched right back, with big Ed Danowski flicking passes, and knotted the game 10-10 with a 73-yard drive that was culminated when Dan- owski threw a forward pass to ,end Church Gelatka for 22 yards and a touchdown. With 5 minutes remaining, Halfback Ed Goddard fumbled a punt. Orviile Tuttle recovered for the Giants and four iplays later Cuff kicked th...

The letter was in response to one Eccles wrote to Sen. Byrd after the latter made a speech attacking new deal spending and warning the nation's credit is endangered.

His selection was made by a committee representing patriotic groups who are fos- tering Americanism programs.

The fight to continue investigation of un-Am- erican influences is now being made in congress. With the billions of expenditures being asked for relief and armaments only $150,000 is asked that a committee may unearth subversive activities.

District, Toll 200 ,• *• H Chinese Pursuit Planes Tklu To Air In Dog-Fight Over New Chiang Capital CHUNGKING, Szechuan Pro- vince—(UP) — Japanese war- planes, ranging more than 1,000 miles inland, today struck their first major blow at the new Chinese capital here, pouring ex- plosives into civilian areas and killing and wounding more than 200 civilian Chinese. There were nearly 80 planes participating in the raid, which was described as the most de- vastating since the bombing of Canton. Large areas of the city were a shambles as the planes soared away, leaving wrecked and burn- ing buildings and scores of dead and dying in the debris. A United Press correspondent counted 50 wounded being car- ried on stretchers into one hos- pital. An undetermined number of corpses still were buried in the wreckage, and it was esti- mated that at least 150 were drowned as terrified civil- ians plunged into the Chialing and Yangtse rivers. Five junks were capsized when a heavy bomb struck the water...

"Texas cannot become a manu- facturing state until the rates are equalized," he said. H. S.
