After 15 days around the 100-degree

while much of the rest of the farm

Official Tells Of Success
In Borrowing Equipment

Continued bus service in Ann Arbor
was assured yesterday with the an-
nouncement of A. H. Cady, manager
of both the old bus line and the

proposed line that he had secured the
loan of enough vehicles to enable
him to operate from Monday, when
the franchise of the Ann Arbor Trans-
portation Co. expires, until Sept. 1,
when his new franchise begins.
Approval by the City Council of a
temporary franchise to run from July
21 until Aug. 31 is expected at its
meeting Monday night.
Cady said he had been able to bor-
row two 20-passenger busses, two
eight-passenger station wagons and
one five-passenger sedan to enable
him to carry on bus service until
his new busses are ready for duty
in the fall.
Each of the two busier routes, the
Hospital-Burns Park run and the
West Washington-Miller-Washtenaw
run, will get one of the larger busses
and one of the station wagons and
the sedan will be allotted to the
Broadway-Pontiac run. Service will

Train Kills 9
In An Auto At
Locomotive Collides With
Car, Hurling Passengers
Into Raisin River
Wreckage Is Carried
Almost A Half Mile
Victims Were Returning
To Pennsylvania Homes
After Visit Here
DUNDEE, Mich., July 18. - (AP) -
Nine persons were killed as a pas-
senger train crashed into their auto-
mobile at a crossing here today,
dragging it onto a trestle and hurled
the dismembered bodies of the occu-
pants 30 feet into the shallow water
of the Raisin River.
The crash, one of the worst of its
kind in many years in Michigan, oc-
curred less than 10 minutes after the
victims had left the home of relatives
they had been visiting here to return
to their homes in Pennsylvania.
The victims were Harry Schuster,
45, of Farrell, Pa.; his wife, Margaret,
45; their three daughters, Vina, 19;
Anna, 12, and Sandra Jean, six
months old; Sam Pisano, 50, of
Wheatland, Pa., his wife, Lena, 48,
and their two daughters, Betty, 9, and
Mary, 6.
The bodies were taken to Monroe.
Frances Bowman, 10, playing in
front of her home near the crossing,
was the only witness of the tragedy.
She said she looked up when she
heard the train's whistle, and saw the
big sedan approaching the crossing.
"I thought they were going to stop,
but they didn't" she said. "Then it
happened. It was awful. I wish I
couldn't remember it."
The locomotive smashed squarely
into the crowded automobile and the
wreckage burst into flames as it was
scattered' along the trestle 75 feet
away and on down the tracks for
more than 500 yards.
Ties of the bridge caught fire as the
bodies of all nine in the car hurtled
from the trestle to the banks of the
stream or into the water.
Babbish Pitted

former State champions will match
strokes here tomorrow in a 36-hole
round to decide which of them will

The finalists are Bob Babbish, 20-
year-old Detroiter, and Dave Ward,
of Saginaw, 28-year-old oil field en-
Babbish defeated Bill Barclay,
Flint member of the University of
Michigan golf team, 5 and 4 today
while Ward was shooting sub-par golf
to subdue Roland Weyand, Detroit
paint salesman, 6 and 5.
In the morning round Babbish had
staged a spectacular recovery to win
four successive holes and defeat Ed
Novak, Traverse City giant, on the
nineteenth hole. In Ward's morning
round the victim was Douglas Blom,
of Flint, who he defeated 4 and 2.
Babbish was two over par for the
14 holes he played with Barclay.

DALLAS, Tex., July 18._- (P)- A
brunette Siamese twin sister was
married here tonight to a tall, dark
dancer and musician with the other
twin assuring:
"She has never resented my pres-
ence when on dates with gentlemen
friends and I know this marriage will
cause no rift between us."
In the cotton bowl of the Texas
Centennial Exposition, 28-year-old
Violet Hilton became the bride of

"Sure, I know everyone has tagged

I've been in love with Jimmy since
I met him two years ago at San
Antonio. You know we tried in sev-
eral eastern states to arrange a wed-
ding but strict state law calling for
the establishment of a residence
stopped us."
"They'll hardly know I'm around,"
said Sister Daisy.
"I have a boy friend, too, and I
wanted to make this a double weddingc
but it was impossible."
Moore, a member of the Hilton sis-

Military Rebels Reported
In Complete Control of
Spanish Morocco
Radicals Su pporting
Fight On Insurgents
Ships And Airplanes Are
Rushed To Help Control
African Territory

MADRID, July 19.- (Sunday)
- UP) - The Spanish government
of Premier Santiago Casares Qui-
roga resigned today.
The Leftist cabinet-installed
May 13 when former Premier
Manuel Azana was raised to the
Presidency of the Republic-had
won the support of a solid labor
front against the revolt.
(By the Associated Press)
Military rebels were reported in
,omplete control of Spanish Morocco
last night.
The Leftist Government in Madrid
ushed naval vessels and airplanes to
Spanish African territories to fight
for their control.
A Government radio announced
hat Ceuta and Melilla, Morocco cit-
ies, were bombed. Two generals were
illed, Algerian reports said, in a
battle at Tetuan, capital of Spanish
Monarchists were identified with
the revolt as all labor groups stood
olidly behind Premier Santiago Ca-
sares Quiroga and ordered general
strikes wherever the opposition at-
tempted to seize power.
Seizures Reported
One report from Oran, Algeria, said
that Francisco Franco, military gov-
ernor of the Canary Islands, and
leader of the revolt, was captured
near Tetuan. But in Madrid, where
a strict censorship was clamped down,
it was admitted that the civil govern-
or of the Canary Islands was sur-
rounded in his palace by rebel troops.
About 20,000 mercenaries of various
nationalities in the Spanish Foreign
Legion were reported from Gibraltar
and Paris to be fighting on the side
of the rebels.
Loyal military forces apparently
were keeping a firm grip on Madrid
but a garrison in Seville, chief city of
southern Spain, revolted. The gov-
ernment claimed to have regained
In a clash at La Linea, Southern
Spain, one person was reported killed
and 20 injured. Trouble at Burgos
and Pamplenos, in North Spain, also
was reported.
Ex-Premier Alejandro Le Roux,
denying he was fleeing Spain, ar-
rived in Portugal, where the widow
and children of the assassinated
Monarchist leader Jose Calvo Sotelo
preceded him in exile.
Two Causes Of Revolt
The revolt was said to have broken
out from two causes-the kidnap
murder of Sotelo tn Madrid and the
reorganization of Spanish protector-
ate military staffs.
Early reports said nine persons were
killed in fighting near the African
cities of Melilla, Arzila, Elskar and
Larache. Discontinued wireless serv-
ices curbed -further reports.
Martial law was proclaimed i some
cities. Where it was proclaimed by
rebels, the workers c.ountered by
Socialists and Communists threw
their entire support to the leftist gov-
ernment of Premier Santiago Ca-
sares Quiroga, announcing they were
ready to go into the streets and fight.
The Socialist Headquarters broad-
cast an order to all workers in the
party not to leave Madrid Sunday but
to be ready to fight the "enemy."
They ordered general strikes where-
ever any declarations of martial law
have been issued contrary to the
orders of the Government. Syndi-
calists came to the support of the
government, making a solid labor
front against the insurgents.
