By Insurgents
And Loyalists
Open Rebellion Appears
In Both Armies; 500
Rise UpAgainst Franco
150 Are Executed
For Insubordination
(By The Associated Press)
Dissension and open rebellion with-
in both armies of the civil war were
reported Tuesday night.
Insurgents massing' for an offensive'
on the northern Asturian front said
the government troops, there were
weakened by mutiny and anarchy.
One hundred and fifty rebellious mil-
itiamen were executed for insubor-
dination, government deserters said.
And from tiny Spanish Morocco-
and southern Spain came the story
of a purge to suppress counter-re-
volt against Insurgent General Fran-
cisco Franco.
Telephone communications to Te-
tuan, the Moroccan aviation base
whence Franco launched his drive
against Spain's Republic more than
eight months ago, were disrupted.
Insurgents Mount Guns
But travelers to Gibraltar said
more than 500 officers and men at
Tetuan had turned against the in-
surgent command there. Thirty of-
ficers and men were executed to sup-
press the uprising, according to ad-
vices from Tangier, international
zone, in Morocco.
Reports from insurgent Algeciras
said that 50 conspirators within Gen-
eral Franco's regime and 200 gov-
ernment prisoners had been shot last
weekend to quell revolts in southern
Algeciras, La Linea and San Roque.
Insurgents last night mounted four
great guns on the seacoast between
Algeciras and Tarifa, pointing across
the Straits of Gibraltar and in posi-
tion to combat a possible offensive
from Spanish Morocco.
Two Explanations Given
Two explanations of the reaction
against Franco were forthcomi
one from an insurgent Carabinier vis-
iting Gibraltar and the other from
Basque fighters supporting the Ma-
drid government.
The carabinier said Franco's sol-
diers hadrbecome dissatisfied with
their commanders and were angry
because of reductions in their wages.
The Basque explanation was the
more interesting, for it brought the
question of Italians in Spain to the
forefront again.
Landowners Support Franco
Said the Basques: Italians within
the army never were popular with
their insurgent Col. Eagues, and re-
sentment against them flared openly
with the defeat at Guadalajara for
which they were blamed. To sup-
press the anti-Italian wave, Franco's
officers ordered mass executions.
Some credence was attached to
this theory--in that Franco has the
support of many wealthy landowners
and members of the old Spanish no-
bility, bitter enemies of the repub-
lican regime of Premier Largo Cabal-
lero, who conceivably might be
strongly opposed to foreign interven-
tion of any kind, volunteer or other-
Whatever the cause, any serious or
widespread dissent within his army
might be a fatal blow to Franco.
His troops battered at government

The action plunged Japan into a
new political crisis.
The Emperor's decree. handed

hoped that this will personalize it and
make it more attractive to the stu-
dents. The book is now being print-
ed and will be ready for distribution
early in May. There will be another
campus sale this week.

Beautifiers Offend
The concerns selling patent medi-
cines and beautifiers seem to be the
most consistent offenders, according
to the trade commission reports. Dur-
ing this month the Associated Phar-
macists of Baltimore agreed to stop
advertising that their "Q-623" as a
"competent treatment and an effec-
tive remedy for rheumatism, neuritis,
sciatica or lumbago" unless the as-
sertion is limited to the relief of pain
resulting from such conditions.
In February the makers of Pinex,
cough remedy, agreed to discontinue
representing the product as a remedy
for coughs unless it specified that it
was a remedy for coughs resulting
from colds, the trade commission, re-
ports. The Pinex concern was also
told not to advertise its produce as
"100 per cent effective" and "giving
instantaneous relief from colds."
Nose Drops Cause Pneumonia
Consumers Union, a reliable source
for information according to Mr.
Horner, reports that numerous con-
cerns use mineral oil in their nose
drops. Mineral oil, according to the
report, has been shown to be a cause
for lipoid pneumonia, especially when
given to young children. "For many
years," Consumers Union says, "me-
dical evidence has been piling up that
mineral oil dropping into the noses of
children, especially very young chil-
dren, may be drawn into the lungs.
There it collects, causing irritation,
inflamation and chronic pneumonia.
The sequel is often acute pnuemonia
and death." Among those nose drops
containing mineral oil, as listed by
Consumers Union are Mistol, Vicks
Va-tro-nol and Pineoleum.

NEW YORK, March 30.-(P)-The
United Mine Workers of America,
negotiating a new wage contract with
the soft coal operators, have with-
drawn all their demands excepting
their demands for higher pay.
This was learned tonight from an
undisputably reliable source.
The miners' concessions led observ-
ers to believe that an agreement could
be reached tomorrow and the strike
threatened for April 1 could be avert-
When negotiations started Feb. 17,
the miners demanded a 'cit in the
work week from 35 to 30 hours, a 15
per cent wage increase, time and one-
half for overtime, two weeks vaca-
tion with pay and a guarantee of 200
days work each year.
Only the demands for the pay in-
crease and time and one half for
overtime are left.

at settlement of the Chrysler Motor
Corp. strike adjourned until Friday,
while the 80,000 workers affected by
the walkout initiated by the United
Automobile Workers of America con-
templated continued idleness.
Corporation Chairman Walter P.
Chrysler, called to New York on
business, and Committee for Indus-
trial Organization Chieftain John L.
Lewis, attending the mine session
there, were expected to return to
Lansing when the governor resumes
the meetings.
"The chances are bright for a set-
tlement," Murphy said, "not long
after we reconvene."
Trainmen May Strike
At his first press conference since
the Supreme Court upheld the right
of states to fix minimum wages for
women, President Roosevelt said such
statutes should apply to men and
children, too. He indicated he con-
sidered state laws, alone, inadequate
to regulate minimum wages but said
it was too early to talk about federal
wage-hour lgislation.
First returns in a strike vote among
8,000 members of the Brotherhoods of
Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen

Fraternity Sing
On Air Waves
Annual Event To Be Held
On Library Steps; Date
I sProbablyMay 18
Plans for the third annual Inter-
fraternity Sing are proceeding apace
with the hope that this year's sing
will be broadcast, according to George
Cosper, '37, president of the Inter-
fraternity Council.
"It is planned to make this year's
sing superior to previous ones in sev-
eral respects," Cosper said, "and also
to establish it more firmly among the
fraternities as a Michigan tradition.'
Last year's sing was held on the
steps of the General Library during
the May Festival on May 15 and 13
fraternities entered into the competi-
tion. Each house sang two songs,
one fraternity song and one Mich-
igan song. Two cups were awarded
by local merchants. One cup was
awarded Sigma Chi fraternity for
having the largest number singing,
78. Theta Delta Chi fraternity won
the cup awarded to the house chosen
by the judges for having the best
melody and singing ability.
It is hoped that twice as many
houses will enter this year, Cosper
said, for out of the 41 houses on
campus a turnout of only 13 houses
is a poor showing.
"The sing will be held on the Li-
brary steps as in previous years," he
said, "but this year we plan to pro-
vide seating facilities for the singers
and also for the audience. We alsc
hope to have either a piano or an
organ to provide accompaniment."
The tentative date for the sing is
May 18, Cosper said, but this may

The temporary "easy money" pol-

denied as being incongruous with a
balanced budget program suggested
recently by Marriner S. Eccles, cha& -
man of the Federal Reserve .Board,
by Prof. Howard S. Ellis of the
economics department.
The policy of "easy money" is de-
sirable only as a temporary measure,
Professor Ellis warned, to avoid the
expansion of credit and production
beyond safe limits and possibly avoid
bringing about another boom period.
