STEPS TO END BUS WALKOUT TO BE RUSHED Fresh Outbreaks of Violent. Spur Settlement Plans BUSES STONED BY SYRACUSE CROWD Operations Out of Boston and Philadelphia Suspended Cleveland, Nov. 28 (/P)— Fresh outbreaks of violence in the 16-state Greyhound bus strike spurred company and union officials toward a settlement today, with a Federal labor conciliator.declaring he was "extremely optimistic." In Syracuse, N. Y., previously the scene of several disturbances, three Greyhound buses were stoned. Police estimated 500 persons crowded around the buses at their station. Missiles crashed through windows and windshields.

Illinois state highway police meanwhile were investigating the stoning of buses. A passenger listed as K. Hoyt, of Duluth, Minn., received cuts in one attack. Greyhound had suspended operations out ot Boston and Philadelphia, and a New England line official said all striking drivers had been "dismissed."

Housing Message Of President Is Ready Congress to Receive Recommendation! for Stimulating Today—Farm Bill Debate to Get Under Way Washington, Nov. 28 (^—Congress will receive a special housing message from President Roosevelt tomorrow before plunging into a crop control debate which promises to he long and vehement. Mr. Roosevelt completed the message, expected to contain recommendations Tor stimulating home building, before . departing Saturday night on a fishing trip in southern waters, For the House, farm legislation will provide the first actual business of the special session. That body has been marking time for two weeks while its agriculture committee wrestled with the crop control bill. Unless there is a hitch it will be submitted to the House tomorrow. A majority of the committee recommended today that the hill be passed, but a minority of five headed by Rep. Andersen (R-Minn) issued a warning that it would "bring about a complete dislocation of agriculture in the United States." Stabilization Proposed The measure proposes to stabilize prices through control of acreage and marketing and an ever- normal granary, plus loans and subsidies to farmers. The Senate has a half week of "arm debate behind it, but leaders said they saw little likelihood of a vote for another six or seven days. The chambers are considering separate hills. The President's housing proposals will add a fifth item to the legislative program he mapped out-for the special session. In his first message, Mr. Roosevelt suggested that legislation covering control of agricultural surpluses, regulation' of wages and hours, regional planning, and government reorganisa- tion he given prior consideration. Senate leaders said it might be possible to act on a housing bill at the specinl session, provided it did not remain too long in committee. Meantime, there was no indication that revision of the tax laws, so urgently requested by business, would be accomplished before January. Byrnes Urges Action The House Ways and Means committee, initiating source of all revenue legislation, is said to have fixed January 15 as the earliest tentative date at which it could have a tax bill ready. Although Senator Barkley (D-' Ky), the majority leader, accepted the committee's prediction as final, Senator Byrnes (D-SC) spoke out in favor of tax action as soon as farm legislation is out of the way. Byrnes said action could be limited to the surplus profits and capital gains .taxes—the two levies most vigorously opposed by business—and legislation passed in a day. "Then we could take up any further amendments to the revenue laws in the regular session," he added. Two Republicans, Chairman John M. Hamilton of the national committee and Senator Capper, of Kansas, spoke up for tax revision today. Capper urged that Congress "remove the unjust features of the undivided profits tax, and thereby encourage business to go ahead." BLOCKADE ON SPAIN COAST IS DECLARED Nabbing a French Plotter FIFTY KNOWN DEAD IN REBEL ASSAULT Women and Children Are Killed During Insurgent Air Raid By CHARLES pTNUTTER Colmcimr Viejo, Spain, Nov. 28 >)—At least 60 persons—all women and children but one—were killed today in an Insurgent air raid on.this village 2Q miles north of downtown Madrid.. I counted 35 corpses lying in the shed of a graveyard on a little hill above the village when I visited it at dusk after an afternoon of death and destruction. Fifteen bodies. wore yet to he brought up from the village and the debris of more than 125 houses was still being explored for other victims. There were 120 persons in hospitals while ma ynwuond hospitals while many wounded were taken to their battered homes. Eleven of those lying in the graveyard shed were infants. Swathed In blood-stained sheets, they had been placed In their dead mothers' arms. With one mother were her six : months-old twins. None of the Infants was over a few months old. Bight older children, ranging up to Bye years of age, were grouped separately. All the olllr.r dead were women except one man lying just inside the door. Practically the entire group were victims of one 220-pound bomb that ripped through six feet of stone and earth covering a small' refuge in the coiftral plaza to kill 32 persons. Only one person left that refuge alive; she was taken away on a stretcher. The victims were trapped in the passageway five feet high and two feet wide. Might Insurgent airplanes swept over Colmenar,Viejo about noon. At nightfall some inhabitants began returning from the fields where they Bed at the first alarm. Many had fled, however, only to die. The bleak, stony hills were raked with machine guns and blasted with bombs. I saw one old man jumping hastily from one ruin to the next. He was wounded in the raid last ,Jn|y, when his daughter was killed by his side.

' • Washington, Nov. 28 (ff 3 }— Rail- •oads of the nation joined forces tonight, for what they termed through counsel a fight for life. Many declared their continued existence is dependent on the outcome of hearings starting tomor- roiv before the Interstate Commerce Commission on higher rates. But, the shippers too. declared their future prosperity is dependent upon freight rates, which the carriers seek to increase 15 per cent, on all but five major commodities for which specific maximum rates are asked. Coal men from the bituminous fields were especially emphatic in stating higher freight rates would cut deeply into their operating revenue. John Carson, consumers counsel for the National Bituminous Coal Commission, led the soft coal opposition to the requested coal rates. Carson especially opposed the maximum rate asked for bituminous coal, one of the five exceptions to the 15 per cent boost. The other exceptions are anthracite coal, lumber, sugar, fruits and vegetables. He sa id the ' proposed increase would mean ?^0,000,000 to the coal consumers, citing an increase in bituminous rates already granted by the commission. He said he will ask the commission to start a general investigation o£ the entire coal freight rate structure. The railroads, in addition to freight rate , increases, also seek a boost in passenger fares from two to two am} one-half cents, a mile in eastern territory— the region east of the Mississippi and north ot the Ohio and Potomac Rivers.

The communique issued at Sala- nanca, where the Insurgent general staff was completing plans foils next offensive, flatly declared^ an end to the neutrality of the ports vhich the London non-intervention committee has attempted to main- in. "All .vessels which attempt to enter government ports will be at- ached," the communique said. Government sources declared his merely put • the finishing ouches on what they termed a 'paper blockade." They said General Francisco Franco did not have sufficient sea strength to make the ilockade effective. Massing Forces Since the Insurgent conquest of he Asturias on the Bay of Biscay, lowever, Franco has been massing lis full naval force in the Western Mediterranean, off the only striy of coast remaining to the Government. Reports reaching the border, de- ,,)ite Insurgent efforts to keep hem secret v . indicated Franco vould strike first at Almeria prov- nce in the warm south ot Spain ind then from southern Aragon oward the Mediterranean. A Government communique was imited to reports of minor artil- cry action while Salamanca headquarters announced simply: "Nothing to reuort." ' Armistice Denied The widespread report that an armistice was being negotiated met with categorical denials from both sides. Insurgent and Government sources alike agreed the lull in operations was due to Franco's preparations for attack and the Government's strengthening of Us defense. Franco was reported to have de- nanded the Government surrender mconditionally before Dec. 5, when ,e would-launch his offensive if his ucrms were refused. The report said Franco had been ready to attack since Nov. 10 but had delayed n hope Government capitulation would spare many lives. At Salamanca, however, a mani- fe«to declared the war • would be won "by force of arms." Franco >arred any compromise with the Government, but the manifesto left the way open to'peace if the Government surrendered "without conditions." __^___ Premier Escapes Assassin Bullets Cairo, Egypt, Nov^S m—Pre- mier Mustapha Nahas Pasha es- pod unharmed tonight when an assasfiin fired four shots at his motor car. • ..

(/P)—With Brit ish a.nd French statesmen scheduled to begin talks on major policy tomorrow, authoritative sources said tonight Britain and France had worked out detailed military plans to defend their Mediterranean lifelines against tho ultimate victor in the Spanish civil war . Recent developments were considered to have lessened the possibility of a new Spanish regime entirely hostile to Britain and France. Among these were London's agreement for exchange ot commercial agents with the Insurgent regime. Also it was felt the airing of the German colonial problem should ease ' Mediterranean ension. Nevertheless, the French and British Naval and Army staffs were saidito ha.ve drafted plans to balk Italo-German control of the western and southeastern portions of the sea Premier Benito Mussolini calls "Mare Nostrum"—Our Sea. This accord was based on the supposition Italy would drive Insurgent Generalissimo Francisco Franco to victory and get payment in the shape of territorial concessions. Despite Fascist^ assurances to the contrary, London and Paris remembered that in each o[ the live instances of armed intervention in Spain during the last 300 years, the inlcrveners have taken a big share of the spoils. The safety of Gibraltar, Malta, the Balearic Islands and French Morocco figured largely in the discussions. These were considered the essential protectors of French and British line* of communication with ' their colonies. Kqually important was the threat to' Egypt and French Tunis from the Italian colony of Libra and to. the Anglo- Egyptian Sudan from Italian-con- (liie'red A'thiopia.

Republican Chairman Demands That Roosevelt Stop "Groping" in Business Crisis—Tax Laws Condemned by Speaker Washington, Nov. 28 ({P)— Republican Chairman John jl. Hamilton said today it was the duty of Congress—"in the face of presidential gropings"—to revise Roosevelt policies responsible for "a major business recession." In a radio speech, Hamilton agreed that it was "right and proper" for Mr. Roosevelt to invite business men to confer with him. But, he' added, business leaders "(eel that limits to effective cooperation have been set by the reckless and heedless policies of the New Deal." Hamilton asserted the cumulative effect of recent Administration legislation had been to "handcuff, to shackle, to hog-lin the legitimate activities of the business ot the nation." The undistributed prolHs tax and the capital gains tax, In Its present form, worn condemned by Hamilton, "Kxaggorgallons of regulation" In the securities exchange act, Hamilton snld, had led to a break In the markets. Republicans, Hamilton said, fav- or an "honestly designed" labor relations act but feel that provisions of the existing Wagner act "have resulted in putting the Administration of the act into the hands of political and economic partisans who apparently consider themselves pledged to discharge a campaign obligation to certain special groups." Hamilton asserted that amend; meiils to or repeal of these laws would restore business confidence and reduce unemployment. "Nothing could '.n more salutary for the country now than awakening by Congress to its own powers, Its own rcsponsibiltlcs," Hamilton said. "Wo face indeed a national emergency.
