MADRID, Jan. 25.-(IP)-The Na-

establish a proletarian dictatorship
appeared to have collapsed today
under the Government's policy of
stern repression, although serious
labor strikes continued at Malaga,
Sevilleand Valencia.
Hundreds of arrests were made
throughout Spain, and the police
and military forces were, inreadi-

Declare Strike.-
A general strike was declared at
Lerid, and at Cordoba 4,000 indus-
trial workers walked out.
S Valencia extraordinary heavy

vent rioting. One civil guard was
wounded. The s t r i k e r s wrecked
and burned a street car and two
S.uto busses. D is p a t c h es from
towns near Cordoba indicated a
more serious movement.

Mary Gilson Compares Brith
Unemployment With U.S.
Comparing the British system of
caring for its jobless with the in-
activity of our government in these
matters, Mary Gilson, of the Uni-
versity of Chicago economics de-
partment last night advocated un-
employment insurance as the bet
means of "breaking our breadlines"
in a lecture at Natural Science au-
"Many different kinds of unem-
ployment insurance are offered, for
our observation," Miss Gilson s'aid.
"We have the opportnity to study
these experiments as they are
working in England, Germany and
Switzerland. Unemployment insur-
ance was introduced into England
in 1911, not as a political measure,
but because of general dissatisfac-
tion with existing conditions. The
burden of payment is shared by the
worker, the employer and the gov-
ernment. Since 1920 the govern-
ment has been forced to extend

benefits to unemployed whose in-
surance had run out. In 1930, the
MacDonald government had placed
these people in a separate class.
The two payments have become
very confused to the foreign ob-
The chief argument against the
British "dole" Miss Gilson said, is
that it demoralized the worker. She
admitted that the British workers
were demoralized. "But," she said,
"not because of unemployment in-
suran e but because of unemploy-
I ment."

German talkies will be introduced
ipto Ann Arbor at the Whitney'
theatre Sunday, with the presenta-

"The Forester's Daughter," a pic-

Ann Arbor will be the smallest
city in the country possessing a
German talkie theatre. The small-
est at the present time is Cincin-
nati. In Detroit the pictures have
been offered with a large measure
of success by the Little Cinema
theatre. The shows have been very'
popular in other cities not only be-
cause of their novelty but because
of the excellent productions put
by UFA and other companies. The
German screen boasts a number of
excellent actors including Emil
Jannings late of Hollywood. Mar-
lene Dietrich was procured by the
American magnates from UFA.
Two shows will be offered nightly
at 7 and 9 o'clock at the Whitney
and Saturday and Sunday matinees
also are planned. In addition to
the German features a program of
short subjects in English will be
offered. The pictures will be pre-
sented under the direction of Louis
Gomberg, '31L, who will act as man-
ager of the theatre for the produc-

the same prices prevailing in other
local theatres. Among the shows the

and the popular "Zwei Herzen inM
