To Terminate Strife
Loyalists Hold Hostages,
Ward Off An Attack With
Threat On Their Lives
(By the Associated Press)
The Spanish civil war last night
(Thursday) centered on the northern
front, within earshot of France, as
rebel planes bombarded San Sebas-
tian and Irun and threatened attack
from the sea.
Eight persons were reported killed
in San Sebastian as bombs dropped
into the streets. The aerial attack
on loyalist San Sebastian resulted in
minor damage.
But a new and desperate battle
impended. The Fascist cruiser Almi-
rante Cervera anchored in the Bay of
Biscay off San Sebastian ready to
shell the city. Loyalists replied with
the ultimatum that 700 Fascist host-
ages would be executed if the cruiser
opened fire.
Government forces were ordered
to attack southern rebel strongholds
in a new offensive to crush the revolt
in that region.
The loyalist warship Jaime I was
reported damaged at Malaga by a
rebel plane, with one sailor killed.
France Cooperates
Four English and two Dutch air-
planes, believed en route to Spain,
took off from the British Isles and
inspired doubts in official quarters
that thedEuropean neutrality pact
ever would become effective.
France, seeking to placate Italy,
announced it would prevent mass en-
listment of volunteers who sought to
fight for the Madrid government, and
awaited anxiously for Germany's
reply to the invitation to join in the
"hands off" agreement.
MADRID, Aug. 13.-(A)- The So-
cialist government of Spain tonight
threw every force at its command
against the Fascist insurrection in a
mighty effort to end speedily the
death and destruction of civil war.
By land in the south, in the air
toward San Sebastian to aid loyalists
there, and into the Gibraltar straits
with warships, the government or-
dered its greatest offensive.
(From Irun came disquieting news
for the government-that five rebel
planes bombed San Sebastian and in-
flicted heavy damage in a renewed ef-
fort to gain that seaside resort on
the Bay of Biscay.)
The revolt, loyalists proclaimed,
must be stamped out "within a few
Algeciras Bombed
Men and women fought side by
side with antiquated- rifles and an-
cient cannon to hold San Sebastian
and Irun, the northern strip of great-
est importance because of its com-
mand of the Bay of Biscay.
An air armada speeded to the at-
tack on Seville, key city of the south
held by Fascists since the rebellion
began more than three weeks ago,
and to neighboring Cordoba and Bad-
Government warships again bom-
barded Algeciras.
Capture of four small towns near
Cordoba was announced by the Ma-
drid war ministry. The ministry als

dismissed Major Ramon Franco, air
attache at theSpanish embassy in
Washington and a brother of rebel
commander Francisco Franco.
(Rebel infantry pushed to within
eight miles of San Sebastian, before
which it fled yesterday in faceofor
surprise offensive by volunteer mil-
itia. Reinforcements were on the
way and occupied Cyarzun.
Planes Leave For Spain
(The main Fascist army concen
trated at Villabona, 12 miles distan
from the San Sebastian front.
(In the extreme south, rebel
marched on Etepona, 41 miles south-
west of Malaga. Two thousand rebel
were expected to reinforce Algeciras
raked by the fire of loyalist warships)
The government tonight assertedE

ALLEGAN, Aug. 13.-(')-Reports
from the battle front tonight indicat-
ed that the defending "Blue" army
had met and counteracted'swift
thrusts of the invading "Red" me-
chanized forces attempting to delay
its advance.
Major General Charles E. Kil-
bourne, commander of the second
army, said he was well pleased with
the speed and efficiency with which
both regulars and National Guard
troops of the Sixth Corps had func-
tioned under simulated battle con-

Dies After Fall
Father Of Professor Here,
Formerly Local Pastor,
Expert On India
Dr. ' Jabez Thomas Sunderland,
father of Prof. Edson R. Sunderland
of the Law School faculty, died here
yesterday afternoon at the home of
his son from injuries suffered in a
bad fall four weeks ago. Dr. Sunder-
land was 94 years old.
A doctor of divinity from Tufts
college, and for 20 years a pastor of
the Unitarian Church here in Ann
Arbor, Dr. Sunderland was also active
as an author, publishing more than
20 books, and writing articles until
the time of his fall recently.
He was born in Yorkshire, England,
in 1842, and graduated in 1867 from
the University of Chicago, where he
took his master's degree two years
later. He was ordained in the Bap-
tist ministry in 1870, but changed to
the Unitarian Faith, and from that
date until 1920 preached from the
pulpits in the United States and Can-
ada, being stationed in Ann Arbor
from 1878 to 1898.
In 1895 Dr. Sunderland was sent to
India as a member of the British Uni-
tarian Association's commission for
investigation of the educational, so-
cial, and religious condition of the in-
habitants of India. He returned to
America the next year, but in 1913
was sent to the Orient again, this
time as president of the All-India
Theistic Conference, and as Billings
lecturer from the American Unitarian
Association to Ceylon, India, Japan,
China, and the Philippine Islands.
He was one of the best-known
Americans in India, and students
coming from that country to the
United States always made it a point
to call on him. During his service
locally, his church was packed with
some of the largest student audiences
ever drawn to a church here.
Best known among his books were
"The Origin and. Growth of the
Bible," written in1894, and "India i
Bondage," written in 1928. The latter
was translated into French and Jap-

Diamond Springs and its right flank
on Swan Lake, its line extending
down the center of Allegan county.
Although the "Blue" forces, most-
ly National Guardsmen, apparently
had held their own against the me-
chanized regular army units thus far,
General Kilbourne said that "the
regulars are doing very well."
"They have covered most of the
critical points along the 12-mile front
and have blocked the most logical
points of approach," he continued.
"Thus they are in position to put up
a good delaying action considering
the haste with which they moved."
"This is not in any way a test of
the efficiency of the troops at the
present. The maneuver is designed
to put them in the field and give
them a chance to apply the lessons
learned in barracks and armories.
One of the greatest things we hope
to accomplish is to give every in-
fantryman a chance to see these new
weapons and learn how to adopt de-
fensive measures against them.
"The new weapons can be stopped
by certain weapons, if properly
placed, but this mechanization of
the army has dumped a novel prob-
lem into the laps of the infantry."
The maneuvers also are intended to
familiarize the troops with tanks and
armored cars, to prevent the disas-
trous panic that occurred when the
British first threw tanks into the
front lines during the World War,
General. Kilbourne explained.

In the 200-meter breaststroke, fea-
tured by Detsuo Hamuro of Japan
who swam his heat in 2:42.5 for a new
Olympic standard, America qualified
Ray Kaye and Jack Kasley of De-

dence for the semi-finals. The Amer-
ican 1,500 meter trio, Jack Medica,
Seattle, Ralph Flanagan, Miami, and
Jim Christy, Chicago, also gained the
penultimate round.
All things considered, however, the
13th day of the 11th Olympiad proved
somewhat of a jinx for many of
Uncle Sam's contenders.
Americans gained an even break

Day Before Convention
CLEVELAND, Aug. 13.-()-The
Rev. Charles E. Coughlin charted to-
day a course clear of political en-

national convention here tomorrow.
"I'll step out," said the Royal Oak,

He said a resolution would be of-

candidate for president, but that it
would carry no endorsement of the
Union party.
Lemke is scheduled to address then
delegates Sunday afternoon.

To Last Any Longer
HUNTINGTON, W. Va., Aug. 13.-
)-Col. Frank Knox, Republican
ominee for vice-president, told West
irginia Republicans tonight he seeks
the future "a real share-the-
ealth development in this land."
He spoke before the mountain
ate's Republican convention, called

reme court bench, and draft a cam-
aign platform.
The vice-presidential candidate
aid the "share-the-wealth" program
e hopes to see carried out consists
f greater ownership of corporation
hares by workmen.
He explained, in an address pre-
ared for delivery:
'Should Be No Antagonism'
"In our American society there
hould be no antagonism between the
orker and the stockholder. Our
apitalist system rests on .the corpor-
tion, large and small. This capital-
t system has grave defects. There
re inequalities in it. But it has built
he greatest productivity in the his-
ory of all mankind. It has given the
merican worker the highest wages
n all history. The man whQ .would
ear down this marvelous system
hen there is no equally productive
ystem to replace it is an enemy of
is country. I want to see our ec-
nomic system purged of its injus-
ices. I want to see it preserved for
s benefits.
,'I want to see in the future a real
hare-the-wealth development in this
"I want to see an increasing share
n the profits of this system going to
he workers. I want to see this come
bout, not by any suicidal scheme of
lestruction, but by an extension of
he ownership of corporation shares
y the workers. Unseen and un-
oticed, this process has been going
n a long time. There are 12 mil-
ion owners of corporate shares in
his country today. War and depres-
ion have temporarily set back this
great movement. It will begin again.
n this movement lies the prospect of
a genuine share-the-wealth program.
In it there is the prospect of indus-
trial peace in this country."
Criticizes Extravagances
The Chicago publisher also at-
tacked the present administration as
"too expensive a luxury to continue
four more years," saying:
"This administration embarked on
a series of blind, reckless, and cruelly
expensive experiments on the vital in-
stitutions of American economic life.
It inaugurated a policy of blind ex-
penditure of the people's money. It
established policies that undermined
credit and currency. It forced exper-
iments that harried business and re-
stricted production. It began at once
to create an enormous Federal bu-
reucayth ares n d an goen

ment in the history of the world."
He referred to "three years of con-
tinuous economic vaudeville," saying
"it has been a grand show.
"But the people have grown tired of
it. There are not enough breathing
spells between acts. It costs too
much. The people have grown ner-
vous, watching the glittering balls
juggled in mid-air. Too rhany have
been broken. Even the Democrats
are walking out on the show."
Taxes Hamper Recovery
Knox declared "the steady progress
of natural recovery is hampered by
the burden of taxes and shadowed by
the fear of inflation." He said wages
have increased since 1932 "from the
progress of natural recovery, living
costs have gone up," and the Ameri-
can. worker faces today the possibili-
t y of that "ruinous rise in the cost of
living which comes from inflation of

Huron River Valley Project Progress
Described Here In Its Various Phases

DURING the last three years there
has been carried on under various
Federal alphabets an intermittent
recreation survey of this county and
of the valley of the Huron River. This
survey resulted a year ago in the pub-
lication of a guide to the county,
which met with a considerable na-
tional notice and immediate local
approval. It was suggested that such
a guide to the Valley on a more elab-
orate scale might be worth while. This
is now being carried on under the
WPA as a Federal Writers Project.
At the University of Michigan are
specialists in every phase of the valley

is intended to serve two different pur-t
poses. The first type of materialh
aims to give a picture of the valleyi
from an early geological period to
the present. It shows how the river
as the highway of the Indians andf
trappers was used with the Grand asr
the main thoroughfare across theI
state, then how its trails, and waterc
power determined the early settle-c
ments and the series of saw mills,t
grist mills, wollen mills, and pulpt
mills, which furnished the industries1
that built the towns. These were
followed in due time by the power
dams, but traces of many of the early
mills and dams can still be seen.
There are studies of the University,

the use of the river for swimming,
boating, picnicing and camping, that
it drives away the better type of fish
and reduces the growth of. even such
fish as carp. It is often fatal to great
number of fish of different varieties.
It is repulsive to the aesthetic sense,
and it greatly depreciates the value
of real estate. Ann Arbor, has been
the greatest sinner in the valley in
this field in the past, but its disposal
plant is now nearing completion. This
will clear up the river as far as Ypsi-
lanti. None of the cities on the river
below here except Bellville have as yet
done anything.
