"Our news boxes which are usual-'

they explained, "were taken during
the week end by someone who prob-

on the Union.
"This isn't the case," one Bili
said, "for they belong to us and we
want them back. No one would

MADRID, Dec. 15,- A revolt of
Spanish airmen ended disastrously
today, in Madrid this morning, and
in Portugal tonight.
The result is that Major Ramon
Franco, stormiest figure in Spanish
aviation, and several companions
were closely guarded prisoners in
Lisbon tonight after they h1ad fled
Madrid in four airplanes this morn-
ing as stern government action
frustrated their plot.
All Spain, meanwhile, was de-
clared under martial law.
Since a revolt broke at the north-
ern city of Jaca last Friday and a
rebel force was crushed in a battle
Saturday, Franco's participation in
the revolutionary unrest was widely
rumored, but not confirmed.
Flyer Escaped Prison.
Last month the noted flyer, who
has been in prison for writing ar-
ticles criticizing the government's
aviation policy, escaped from prison
and had been sought everywhere.
At 8 o'clock this morning he ap-
peared at Cuatro Vientos airdrome,
the field of the four winds, and
what is considered the first aviation
revolt in history began.
Mechanics and other members of
the staff were coming on duty at
that time and were ordered to as-
semble on the parade grounds,
where they were harangued by
their officers and urged to join the
republic which had just been pro-
claimed. All who joined the move-
ment, about 1,000, were given rifles
and ammunition, although many
had never used such a weapon be-
fore, and those who refused were
locked in a hangar.
Disarmed Guards in Escape.
Six planes were wheeled out and
their wings were painted red by
part of the rebels, while other dis-
armed the guards over the arsenal
and filled a motor truck with Biombs
which later were placed on part of
Then several of the ships began
l a flight over Madrid, d r o p p i n g
pamphlets which urged troops to
revolt and threatened to bomb
their barracks if they did not.
Other mutineers severed all com-
munications between the aviation
field and the capital and siezed the
government wireless station near
the airdrome, imprisoning the man-
ager in charge. Through this medi-
um they announced to the world
that a revolution was on and that
a republic had been proclaimed.
