"When It Is necessary to show that we fear no man, we can do It," he eaid, "Our people are heroic and decent and determined to maintain their independence. This heroic stand of our people has been recognized by Britain and the United States." "You have come to show that the Slovaks stand by the integrity of Czechoslovakia. The Slovak farmers and Slovak workers have not remained behind. The Slovak soldier has remained loyal and safeguards the republic. WOKE FOB MINORITY' "If officials of the Slovak people's party made any remarks against the republic It must be known that they apoke only as a minority party and not in the name of the Slovak people. The Slovak majority Is here today. "Long live Slovak unity I The guaranty of Slovak liberty is the republic. Will you promise to help me by carrying out my program?" "Yes, yes," the crowd shouted.

Paris Warns Tokio as Raid On Canton Adds 1500 to Toll Continued From First F-ago began May 28. Great Britain has protested the bombings, while the United State has condemned them without an official protest. SWEEP OVER IN ATTACKS More than 100 bombs fell on the metropolis as the war planes swept over in one attack at 8 30 A. M., and another two hours later. One side of the French-owned Doumcr Hospital on the river-front was blown out. A French military surgeon was wounded slightly, two Chinese patients killed and seven injured, The hospital was struck as the raiders attempted to bomb the Pearl River Bridge. French Colonial Infantrymen from Shameen Island, where there are British and French concessions, were speeded to the scene to guard the property. A. P. Blunt, British consul general, telephoned a protest to the Japanese consul in Hongkong against the flight of the war planes over the international quarter, The Japanese said he would relay the protest to Toklo and was reported to have added: "I for one am most sorry that our people flew over Shameen. They will have to be more careful in the future." Government buildings, railway stations, electric, power plants and the I ALICANTE, Spain, June 6 (A. P.). Insurgent air raiders swept down the Mediterranean coast today, leaving at least 84 dead and 300 injured in a bomb-pocked trail from Castel-lon de la Plana to Alicante. Result of the swift aerial attacks was: Alicante 30 dead, 118 injured. Valencia 17 dead, many injured. Segorbe 12 dead, 30 injured. Small coastal villages 25 dead, approximately 100 Injured. ARMIES IN STALEMATE Insurgent and Spanish Government armies were locked in a stalemate along the eastern fronts, while the insurgent airmen sallied behind the Government's sternly defended lines. Alicante's dead Included three Brit ish seamen aboard the British freighter St. Winifred when It was struck and set afire. names quickly enveloped the St. Winifred after the noon-day raid, but were brought under control early tonight. The ship was damaged in a previous Insurgent raid a fortnight ago. Mast of the Alicante victims, Ironically, were in an air-raid shelter on which the Insurgents scored a direct hit. Among the dead were nine women, a child and two stevedores. Five German-made Junker planes participated in the raid here. Today's raids followed a week of bombardments along the coast In which more than 400 persons were killed, resulting in new protests from neutral nations. The St. Winifred was the seventh foreign ship wrecked or sunk by the insurgents in the lust 10 days. German Airmen Better Speed, Altitude Marks BERLIN, June 6 (A. P.). German airmen today bettered two world fly ing records. Major General Ernst Udet, rated Germany's foremost flier, in a Heln- kel one-seatcr plane, covered 100 kilo meters (62.1 miles) at C34.37 kilo meters (393.94 miles an hour. The listed record, 554.357 kilometers (344.-48 miles) an hour, was made by Eurlo Ntclot, of Italy, Dec. 6, 1937. 1 1 KILL to Their Partner 1f Sil 'A A t ft St 0 ' t Pearl River Bridge apparently were the principal objectives of the fliers. The Japanese have been attempting since last year to destroy the transportation facilities and end Canton's importance as the gateway for war supplies from abroad. Casualties were especially heavy along the water-front, where bombs struck amid tightly packed houseboats. A. T. Hull, of Hampton, Va., a newsreel cameraman, was stunned while filming rescue work. Edward H. Lockwood ,of Indiana, Y. M. C. A. secretary, narrowly escaped injury. In the attack In which the French hospital was damaged, X-ray equipment and operating rooms were destroyed. Other bombs fell within 200 yards of the French Cathedral, killing Red Cross workers. rOWER CUT OfT Forty-five bodies were laid In the road outside the Chinese Red Cross unit building next to the French hospital. A fire caused by a short circuit raged for four hews in a power plant, disrupting the city's current. (Hongkong reported refugees continued to stream in there. The Rt. Rev. Ronald O. Hall, Anglican bishop of Victoria, Hongkong, asked Sir Geoffry Northcote, the Governor; that the Government establish a refugees camp, but the request was refused, (Bishop Hall left for Canton to attempt to arrange for establishment of a neutral zone.) Eight bombs fell on Sun Yat-sen University, destroying nearly all classrooms. Many casualties were reported among students In the Peigheng School at Tungshan. Thousands of refugees crowded near the International quarter tonight. Freud 'Ransomed Friends Say in N.Y. Continued From First Page operation with the Co-ordinating Committee for Aid to Refugees, and with the assistance of the State Department of the United States Gov ernment. This fund has been used to assist many scientists out of Austria, it was explained, and special efforts had been made in Dr. Freud's behalf. Just how much money was turned over to Austrian Nazis to obtain permission for Dr. Freud to leave the country could not be learned, nor to whom the money was actually paid. It was known, however, that the State Department was co-operating in obtaining his release and that diplomatic representatives of the United States Government In Aus tria saw to it that Dr. Freud got safe pas-sage across the Austrian bor der to France. CONTRIBUTORS TO FUND The New York City representative of the emergency committee of re lief and Immigration of the American Psychoanalytic Association, un der whase direction the lutid has been collected, Is Dr, LRwrence S. Kuble. Among the substantial contributors to the fund also were Dr. Smith Ely JelllfTe and Dr. A. A. Brill, all of this city. All three of these physicians have been close students of Freud in the field of psychoanalysis. Dr. Catharine Bacon is in charge of the fund collection in Chicago. Dr. John Murray In Boston; Dr, Lucille Dooley in Washington and Baltimore, with other assistants in Phil adelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other points throughout the country. Dr. Kuble would offer no details on the manner in which the committee aided in obtaining permission for Dr. Freud to leave Austria, U. S. 1EQ TO JOIN SPAIN BOMBiDIG QUIZ Studies Britain's Bid For an International Investigation WASHINGTON, June 6 (A. P.). Secretary of State Corclell Hull said today he was examlnging every phase of the British proposal that the United States Join In an international Investigation of aerial bombings In Spain. The proposal was communicated to the State Department by the British Ambassador, Sir Ronald Lindsay, In an interview with Under secretary Sumner Welles. Lindsay suggested that this Government agree to be represented on an international Investigating committee. TO ASK DETAIL8 After studying the proposal, State Department officials decided to ask Great Britain for further details. While Secretary Hull conferred with his division chiefs on the British suggestion, reports continued to flow in of additional Japanese air bombings at Canton, taking scores of lives. Reporters asked the Secretary whether, in view of the continued bombings, he contemplated any steps beyond the statement Issued Friday by Undersecretary Sumner Welles, denouncing aerial attacks on civilian populations. Hull replied he had nothing new In mind is this connection. Previous Invitations to this Government to Join with Great Britain and France in enterprises like the proposed inquiry have encountered the immediate reaction that this Government could not see fit to accept. This Immediate reaction Is lacking in the present Instance. Nevertheless, the feeling prevails that the Administration does not desire to Intervene so directly in European affairs. Many diplomatic experts believe the most this Government might be disposed to do would be to attach a military observer to the International Commission after Great Britain had set It up. AMERICANS IN AREA The continued Japanese bombing of Canton shared interest here with the British proposal. There are 340 Americans listed In State Department records as living in the Canton consular area, which embraces a wide territory including Kwantung, Kwangsl and Kwelchow, excepting Swatow. Approximately half this number live In Canton Itself. No word has been received by the Department to Indicate that any of these Americans has been killed or injured. SWEDEN ACCEPTS STOCKHOLM, June 6 (A. P.). Sweden tonight accepted in principle a British Invitation suggesting an International commission to determine whether Spanish bombings that have killed hundreds of civilians were directed toward military objectives. Foreign Minister Richard Sandler said the favorable reply already had been delivered to Britain, who also has approached the United States, France and Norway on the same project. The plan would send a neutral commission Into Spain to study the air-raid problem. NORWAY FAVORABLE OSLO, June 8 (A. P.). Norway's Government circles today were favorably disposed toward Britain's plan for an International inquiry into air raids on Spanish cities. It was expected the Cabinet would act on the proposal this week. Daladier Acts To Gird Frontier Continued From First Page down any pieties which 1 nvade French territory in the future.) DEEPEST INCURSION The Sunday bombardment marked the deepest inroad by alien fighting planes since the Spanish civil war started July 18, 1936. There were no casualties yesterday and no bombs were dropped today. The Mediterranean border town of Cerbere was bombed May 28 and Paris protested to the insurgent Spanish regime Three houses were destroyed and two Frenchmen were killed. Purposes of Daladier's trip -were understood to be to Install bases for pursuit planes along the border and to increase the efficiency of anti-aircraft batteries. The long peaceful French-Spanish border, with the towering Pyrenees forming a natural barrier between the two traditionally friendly nations, had been unfortified for centuries. Since the outbreak of the war France has Installed anti-aircraft batteries behind Cerbere and Bourg-Madame, the two principal railway gateways to Catalonia, but otherwise has erected few defenses. Military planes had been requlrJ to use civil airports on the frontier. With the incursions Into France, generally attributed to the Insurgents, becoming more threatening, Daladier indicated he would gird the frontier to meet all attacks. In the Ax-les-Thermes bombard ment yesterday powerllnes and the right-of-way of the Barcelona-Toulouse railway were damaged, bringing orders for French pursuit planes to tackle any raiders. . Daladier intended to make a per-sonal investigation at Ax-les-Thcrmes, then visit the Cerdagne Valley and Perpignan, returning to Paris tomorrow night. FRANCO DENIED"RAID" BURGOS, Spain, June 6 (A. P.). Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco Franco's General Staff Issued a statement today that no Insurgent planes had been in the air near the French frontier. The statement was released after reports were received of the bombing of French territory yesterday by planes of unknown nationality which new across the border from Spain. GEfifll 10 SEEN REBEL ARRESTS Protests by Advisers Of Franco Cause, Gibraltar Hears GIBRALTAR, June 6 (TJ. P.). Travelers reaching here tonight from Seville, Spanish nationalist city, reported that protests from Generalissimo Francisco Franco's German advisers had been responsible for wholesale arrests In the In surgent ranks. These travelers, making their way across the frontier which has been virtually sealed by reinforced patrols during the past three or four days, also reported that a serious uprising threatened In Seville and Cadiz as result of discord between some, of Franco's Spanish followers and his German and Italian advisers. These reports Indicated that large numbers of insurgent Phalangists (Spanish Fascists) had been arrested and were being executed almost dally after being supported in their al leged revolutionary plot by Gen. Gonzalo Queipo de Llano, insurgent commander for Southern Spain and famous as the "Broadcasting General." Reports persisted, despite nation alist denials, that Queipo de Llano had "disappeared" after his support of the Phalangists was revealed through the efforts of German in telligence operatives. Many senior staff officers of the insurgents, serving under Queipo de Llano and other leaders, were said to have been arrested throughout Andalusia Province on suspicion of belonging to a loyalist espionage ring. These arrests were reported to have resulted from the disappearance of important military documents and photographs of strategic posts from the German military intelligence headquarters in Seville. Health Agencies Aid Hospital Fight Continued From First Page mand. the natural anxiety of parents with little children was eased somewhat for the moment, at least, by a County Institution Board announcement. Mrs. N. R. Messick, chief of the board, promised that her office will pay for the hospitalization of any Individual emergency case which really requires it. The County Commissioners will meet at the Springhaven Country Club Thursday afternoon with the Delaware County Medical Society, which as long ago as 1932 pleaded for a hospital for infectious diseases, At that time the appeal was tabled for lack of funds, but it was recalled that estimates made then fixed $80,-000 to $100,000 as the probable cost of such an institution. The Welfare Council has been a leader In the campaign for a hospital since a U. S. Public Health Service survey declared the need Imperative five years ago. The council is composed of 50 health and social service agencies throughout the county, and its strength in the current drive is increased by the enlistment of the Delaware County Federation of Women's Clubs with 43 units. LACK OF FUNDS BLAMED In the past, notwithstanding the persistent urging of medical and so cial service agencies, the County Commissioners have been obliged to leave such problems in the hands of the 36 local health authorities. There again the lack of funds to aid families in moderate circumstances was all too apparent. Hav-erford township was able to pay for the hospitalization of such cases elsewhere, as it still does, but Radnor, Clifton Heights and the poorer boroughs never were able. With the hospitalization of the Pollock child only a temporary expedient, and the lack of arrangements for the Guth baby described as a county "disgrace," the following suggestions were made to the county commissioners: Mrs. Alice B. Stevenson, president of the County Children's Aid Society: Use the $40,000 balance left on the county books Jan. 1 for at least a temporary ward or hospital. Mrs. Harold Bodtke, president of the County Federation of Women's Clubs: Get a Federal WPA grant or State appropriation to help construct the institution." Charles Flounders, president of the County Rotary Club: As an alternative, several counties should get together and build and maintain such a hospital. Mrs. William A. Jaquctte, president of the Welfare Council: Appeal to the Federal Government for funds. It will be Impossible to build a hospital for contagious diseases this year, said James B. Miller, chairman of the Board of Commissioners. But there Is a $32,500 appropriation this year for aid to hospitals, he pointed out, and $16,250 of the appropriation remains unspent. "It would be a nice thing," he declared, "if some of the hospitals getting this money would use some of it to create isolation wards for contagious cases." Sound Americas' Trade Hoped for by Wallace WASHINGTON, June 6 (A. P.). Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace expressed hope tonight a "iound two-way trade can be built up increasingly between the Americas, which will back up our many expressions of friendship with the facts of solid accomplisliment." jflll il ONE DAY EXCURSIONS From Philadelphia All lafi ikawnar tar th rouodtrlp.

He was one of a group on a school picnic. nues OFF mi icipice Near-tragedy brought a swift end yesterday in Falrmount Park to a school picnic held to mark the end cf classes for 10-year-old George Sander and his playmates. Tempted too near the edge of a cliff overlooking the East River Drive, George plunged 50 feet over jagged rock and through brush late yesterday to come, to rest beside the roadway, near the Columbia Ave. Bridge. While his companions, unaware of the mishap, continued their play above him, his broken and unconscious form lay unnoticed a few yards from the Schuylkill Regatta judges' stand until a passing motorist stopped and took him to the hospital.
