A Loyalist Handicap
Seven hundred persons, a number
exceeding even the rashest predic-
tion, herded into the Union Ballroom
last night to hear the graphic saga
of Spains "two-day" Civil War re-
lated by Steve Daduk, fiery com-
mander of 3,000 Americans fighting
for the Loyalists.

Seventy-two hours after civil strife
began, he said, Italian and German

As he traced the history of the

field, linked the Loyalist cause with
the struggles of American progres-
Simultaneously he exhorted his
student audience to "exterminate in
this country the forces of fascism and
reaction, against which the Spanish
people have had todefend them-

College of the City of New York only

"But America's reactionary press,"
Daduk declared, "in order to create
fear and hatred in your minds,
brands the Spanish government and
people 'red' as they do to everything
that stands for progress."
He described the bombing of 4,200

sistence stiffened and Franco was
stopped. By February," Daduk said,<
"we changed from a defensive to an
offensive type of warfare."
"Remember that 45 per cent of the
Spanish people are illiterate," Daduk
stated. They lived in a feudal atmo-
sphere and in 14 months we have

MOSCOW, Sept. 28.-(P)-Russia's
government-inspired press warned to-
night of the Soviet's might in war
but foreign observers predicted there
would be no warlike moves that might
aggravate tense relations with Japan
in the Far East.I
The Red Army's mouthpiece, Red
Star, even threatened that Russia
would fight an enemy in its own ter-
Neither the Red Star nor other
newspapers, however, mentioned any
names and the warnings were tem-
pered with disavowals of any inten-
tion of the Soviet Union to go to
war unless war is "forced on it."

tary observers in North China esti-
mated Japan to be mobilizing 600,000
troops for a possible clash with Rus-
"If war is forced on us," said the
army journal, "this war will be
fought not on Soviet territory but
on the territory of those who first
dare to raise their sword against us."'
There was no announcement of the
reported departure of Dimitri V. Bo-
gomoloff, Russian ambassador to
China, supposedly on his way here
from Nanking on a vital mission af-
fecting the Soviet's position in the
Foreign observers, including in-
formed Japanese, said they doubted
that Russia would make any belliger-
ent moves in the Far East. They ex-
pressed the view that Moscov would
prefer to see the Japanese army so
weakened by stubborn Chilese re-
sistance that Japan would refrain
from any provocation.
Auto Ban Rule
Careful Check Of All Cars
Is Scheduled By Office;
Storage Clause Cited
The Dean of Students' Office today
warned all students to register' their
cars immediately, serving notice that
regulations governing the use of au-
tomobiles during the school year are
now being rigidly enforced.
Since driving permits have been is-
sued to those exempt from University
restrictions a careful check is being
made of all cars. Particular atten-
tion is cafled to rules dealing with
stored cars. Students must register
such cars at the Dean's office at once,
failure-to comply constituting a vio-
lation of the regulations.
Students receiving permission to
drive cars are cautioned against driv-
ing without University licenses. Such
action is similar to driving without
permission and the Dean's office an-
nounces will be disciplined accord-
ingly. Applicants whose requests have
been on file for over a week are
asked to call for tags without delay.
Exemption from driving regula-
tions is not automatic and those en-
titled to such exemption are remind-
ed that application must be made
The following interpretation of the
regulations is offered by the Office of
the Dean. Violations will not be ex-
cused on the grounds of misunder-

Planes Drop Bombs Only
On Military Centers In
New Raids On Chinese
Raiders Driven Off
SHANGHAI, Sept. 28.-(P)--Jap-
anese air raiders made new forays
today on centers of Chinese resist-
ance but, apparently in response to
protests against mounting destruc-
tion and noncombatant deaths,
bombed only military targets.
The attacks, over a widespread
area of central and south China, were
aimed primarily against Chinese air
forces which a Japanese spokesman
declared already have been crippled.
A Japanese fleet bombed an air-
port five miles from the city of Wu-
hu, on the Yangtze river 30 miles
southwest of Nanking, China's cap-
ital. Wuhu itself, however, was not

ed on new Chinese anti-aircraft bat-
teries in the Chapei sector and on

Neither the Shanghai nor the Nan-
king raids was effective. The capital's
aerial defense fleet met the Japanese
and drove them off. Although the
Shanghai anti-aircraft guns scored
no hits, they kept the Japanese too
high for accurate aim.
A Japanese naval spokesman said
that Chinese airdromes at Kwang-
teh, Hangchow, Changin, Kashing
and Tachiaochang, outside Nanking,
also were bombed.
More than half of China's war-
planes have been destroyed, he said,
and China is facing a shortage of
pilots and equipment.
Canton was raided twicelast night
and again today, in extension of the
Japanese navy's admitted campaign
against coastal cities.
A spokesman declared the bom-
bardments were necessary because
