Of The DAY
(By The Associated Press)
95 Killed As Calcutta
Express Is Derailed
PATNA, India, July 17.-U)-The
engine and seven coaches of the Cal-
cutta Express shot from the rails to-
day and plunged over an embank-1
ment, killing at least 95 persons in
India's worst train wreck.
Relief workers recovered the bodies
and pushed ahead with a search of
the first two' coaches where it was
feared more bodies may be found.
First unofficial estimates said the
number of deaths might reach 300.
A railroad official described the
scene as "like any battlefield."
The first two coaches were com-
pletely telescoped and buried be-
neath the wreckage of the two be-
,ind them, which landed on top of
the first two as the cars crashed
over the slope some 15 miles from
Local Hindu and Moslem organiza-
tions arranged to hold funeral rites
for victims tomorrow.

Bootmaker Sees
His Profession
As dying Craft
Harry W. Clark, who has his boot-
shop on Forest Ave., near South Uni-
versity, follows a dying craft.
The profession of bootmaking seems
to be nearing extinction, according to
Mr. Clark, who finds it almost impos-
sible to obtain competent helpers
when the orders pile up from Tibet,
India, Australia, England, Germany,
and Constantinople. Often he is
swamped with orders that just have
to wait until he can tackle them. He
works until 11 p.m. every day except
"It takes long hard years of train-
ing to become a guild craftsman," Mr.
Clark said. "I started as an appren-
tice at the age of 13. At the end of 12
years I was a journeyman, and after
nine years more I was accepted by the
City and Guilds of London Institute
in 1901.
"Boys won't learn a trade in these
times. It's much easier to go into
an automobile factory than go
through years of training. There are
few master bootmakers left."
A bootmaker proud of his art is
Harry Clark, whose accent betrays his
Derbyshire, England, boyhood. He
settled in Ann Arbor after 10 years
of roaming the globe. He has been in
the same shop on Forest Ave. for a
quarter century.
"They know me everywhere as a
bootmaker," he said, picking up a
stack of mail accumulated over a
fortnight. Postmarks were pointed
out from Cass, Ark.; Linton, Ind.;
Hartford, Conn.; Fort Oglethorpe,
Ga.; and from Texas, Arizona, Cali-
fornia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maine
ind Iowa.
A handmade shoe is real art, ac-
cording to this English master of the
craft. "It holds its shape, lasts longer,
and is better looking," he said. He
claims there is as much difference be-
tween a custom-made shoe and one
made by machine as there-is between
an oil painting and a common litho-
One of Mr. Clark's specialties is a
pac, an Indian moccasin with a high
top like a boot, which he says is the
anly American invention in the foot-
wear line. It leaves you without
aching feet after a long day's hiking,
he says.
His customer list includes famous
persons, but because he considers his
trade a profession-"just like being
a doctor or a lawyer,"-he will not
reveal their names. He did admit
Saving made a pair of hiking boots
for Robert Frost for the poet to wear
while tramping the hills of Vermont.
Any kind of bootwear is Mr. Clark's
business-from a baby's kid shoe to
trim English riding boots, his hobby.
Mr. Clark's customers usually trust
his judgment as to the selection of
materials, he said, as he untied a
package just delivered by the post-
man. From Dallas, Texas, the bundle
contained a pair of brown sports shoes
for copying. How did anyone in Dal-.
las find out about Clark? Well, he's
been here a long time, and he saysI
his customers tell others.E
A voracious reader, Mr. Clark lists
as a favorite-Charles Dickens. He1
likes young people, he says, and for
that reason likes Ann Arbor, event
though he thinks it isn't as lively aI
place as it was when he settled here
25 years ago. "Young folks make mek
feel young," he said.-
Most of his patronage from stu-t
dents is because of his riding boots.
[e sells a lot of them at Christmas,
when he and his three assistants
burn the oil late to fill rush orders.I
But year through year, Harry
Clark's market is the broad world,
and although he readily admits the
demand for custom-made boots,'
shoes, and pacs isn't what it once was,'
he is certain there will be a return

to "the only real footwear."

Cardinal Mundelein
Praised By Pius XI
-Pope Pius XI today praised George
Cardinal Mundelein, of Chicago, in
his first direct reference to the Car-
dinal since the German government
demanded that he be reprimanded
for a speech criticizing the Nazi re-
"The great Cardinal is courageous
in defense of the rights of God and
the Church and the welfare of souls,"
the Pontiff told a group of Chicago
residents in a general audience.
Because the Cardinal's speech was
permitted to pass without the Vati-
cans condemnation, the Nazi re-
gime protested and declared that
basic conditions for normal relations
between Germany and the Vatican
no longer existed.
Cardinal Mundelein declared in a
diocesan address at Chicago May 18
that Chancellor Adolf Hitler was "an
Austrian paperhanger and a poor one
at that," and said German trials of
Catholic priests and lay brothers on
mmorality charges were "crooked"

BILBAO, Spain, July 17.- (P)-j
The end of a year of war today found
the Insurgent armies of General
Francisco Franco confident of ulti-
mate Victory. Tomorrow is the an-,
niversary, of that hot July day when
the revolt that had been brewing for,
years flared into savage civil conflict.
The climax of the year of battle1
so bloody and hatred so intense that1
probably one million soldiers andi
non-combatants have died came
when Insurgent troops marched into
Bilbao a month ago, ending the cen-z
tuiies-long autonomy of the Basque
nation and wiping out the last great
Government stronghold in the North.
Bare facts and figures tell what
has happened in that year:
The Insurgents claim possession of
34 of Spain's 50 provincial capitals.-
They hold all the colonies. Of the
Balearics only the Island of Minorcaf
remains to the Government. Of 11k
cities of over 100,000 inhabitants the
Insurgents have taken six: Seville,
Malaga, Bilbao, Zaragoza, Cordoba
and Granada. They hold two-thirds -
of all Spanish territory.
It has been a year in which at least
five other nations-Great Britain,
France, Russia, Germany, Italy-
have teetered at times close to the
edge of the same blazing chasm.
Bitter international arguments
have raged over volunteers of other
nations fighting on both sides; over
the bombing of the German cruiser
Deutschland; over charges of foreign
aid and interference, and finally the
breaking up, in effect at least, of the
non-intervention committee's at-
tempt to maintain a naval cordon
around Spain.
It has been a year in which the
forces of Insurgent Generalissimo
Francisco Franco, off to a halting
start through failure to capture the

three great military and industrial
centers-Madrid, Barcelona or Va-
lencia-in the first wave of uprising,
rallied to sweep province after pro-
vince, perfect a strong organization,
and smash straight to the gates of
Madrid last fall.
Then something went wrong. With
the fall of the capital awaited hourly.
the defense lines on the edge of the
city itself tightened desperately and
After the dramatic effort that
raised the sieges of Toledo's Alcazar
and Oviedo and a fresh thrust at
Madrid which was turned to a rout in
Guadalajara province, the Insur-
gents turned to the northern prov-
The supposedly impregnable "iron
ring" around Bilbao, the Basque cap-
ital, imbedded in mountains and
forged of cement and steel, crumpled
before artillery and airbomb pound-
ing such as the world has not seen
since the World War.
The loss of Bilbao cost the Gov-

ernment the iron mines and shipping
iesources of the northern port, bus-
iest in Spain. It ended the fighting
efforts of the Basque nation, among'
the toughest warriors in Spain. It
opened great resources to the victors.
The taking of Bilbao also largely
offset the moral effects of the narrow
failure at Madrid, and established the
fact that the revolt of a year ago,
then lacking men, vital supplies and
money, had grown to an organization.
capable of highly sustained effort.
Today the insurrection was well-
supplied with troops ,artillery, tanks,
planes, munitions, food, technical
equipment and money. The .four po-
litical parties involved at the out-
set were welded into a single party,
with Franco the undisputed general-
issimo. Morale was high, discipline
strict, and new troops, with time for.
drilling, pour in steadily to increase
the manpower needed for the finelI
great effort.
