HURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 1939 Lelhargy Ended By Wa So City Turns To Im pvovemenls BURGOS, Aug. 5 (UP)—The cllj fathers of Burgos' municipal COUH cil have approved a special appro prlatipn for (lie enlargement anc tenutifyliig of (lie square mm ad joining street In' front of a\ historic Burgos eatlieclrnl when Spain's famous medieval hero E Old Is burled. The appropriation act also carries a clause empowering the citj, administration to acquire and raze Hie convent of San Luis nuns am five private houses an the Calle de San Cosme nncl one large building—No. 37—on the Pliizn Vega both adjoining the entrance to the 50C-year-o!d cathedral. Tins new awakening of civic pride is. typical of the change Unit has come over tl\e temporary capital of nationalist, Spain since the war began. IJved in I'ast Before July 18, 193U, Burgos was a sleepy provincial town, dreaming more of past glories when it wns (he capital of the powerful medieval kingdom of Castillo, rather than of future greatness, lls inhabitants led orderly, prosperous, but extremely dull lives and their '• traditional, aloofness toward the vest of Spain was emphasized by their intense disapproval of the regime which replaced the monarchy. "We hear yon Matlrllenos .have a republic now," the Burgaleses • would somewhat contemptuously remark to visitors from Madrid. Now that the war is over, however, and the government is about to move to Madrid, the Burgaleses have no Intention of sliding back into the lassitude of the old days. With the coming of peace they are . looking around for new fields In which to exercise' the energies and abilities awakened and stimulated into activity by the war. Modern Hotels Built Even before liie war was over Burgos succeeded in effecting one or two notable improvements in itself. Two -new modern hotels- one cle luxe—have supplemented the moderately good but rather dingy, old-fashioned ones which were nil Die town had before. The public pnrfc opposite the chain of cafes along the Alemeda is a beautiful gardens-full of green grass, shaciy^jTyalksi ,and many-colored flowerslh formal beds, whereas in' August, 1930, it lyas ; a parched, dusty desert in which a fe\v withered and defected plants co\ild hardly keep alive Though proud to \>e the temporary home of Francisco Franco and many of his ministers, there is one reason why Burgos will not he .altogether sad at seeing the government move lo Madrid—it will relieve the desperate overcrowding the city has suffered for the past three years.. Families of six and more have been obliged to live in two rooms because there were no other lodgings vacant. The provincial government had to move from its quarters to the ministry of interior could occupy the building; all the families occupying apartments on the floors above the old casino had to move ont so the edifice could be used by the ministry of defense. The Burgaleses will be able to stretch their legs and breathe more deeply when Hie excess population has gone. ggTOETILLH. "(ARK.)'
