In Brief
Spain
HENDAYE, Franco-Spanish Fron-
tier-A Spanish government dispatch
asserted Loyalist artillery yesterday
scored hits on an Insurgent staff
headquarters at Fuentes De Ebro on
the Aragon Front in northeastern
Spain.
While Government field guns'
pounded the middle Aragon Front
Generalissimo Francisco Franco's In-
surgent forces slogged through heavy
rains and mud to prepare for their
general offensive, which Insurgent
leaders have declared would begin as
soon as the weather is favorable.
While Franco prepared for the "big
push," Government forces harassed
his fortifications and communica-
tions. Today the Government re-
ported its batteries had balked In-
surgent efforts to fortify the banks
of the Basa River in the Fuentes
sector and had effectively bombarded
the Zuera sector.
Manila
Growing records of death and de-
struction today gave evidence that
Wednesday's typhoon was the most
disastrous in the Philippines in 25
years.
The incomplete list of fatalities
stood at 123, although many towns
remained to be heard from. It was
feared the total casualties would ma-
terially exceed that figure. An in-
cow plete survey of property damage
estimated the loss at $4,000,000.
Michigan
At Lansing yesterday, a State fact-
finding committee, appointed to de-
termine the extent of Michigan's na-
tural gas reserves, announced that it
was too big a job.
