TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 8 193G SPAIN TO NAME NEW PRESIDENT Martinez Barrio in Office After Parliament' Ousts Alcala Zamora. MADRID, (.T) -- Diego Martinez Barrio, moderate left republican, assumed the presidency of Spain Wednesday after a dramatic session of the parliament w h i c h ousted the present r e p u b 1 i c's f i r s t president, Niceto Alcala Zamora. In several sections fresh outbursts of the political violence which has spread through S p a i n since the leftist triumph in the JALCALA ZAMORA. February parliamentary elections accompanied the startling change. Alcala Zamora, an outstanding creator of the republic, was turned out of office in a political upheaval that bore a striking similarity to the overthrow of former King Alfonso at the hands of Alcala Zamora himself just five years ago. The cortes will vote Thursday on calling within eight days of an election for presidential electors. The new president must be elected within three months by a joint session of the parliament and an equal number of electors. Martinez Barrio himself appeared to be the outstanding candidate for the presidency although the socialists were reported backing Sanchez .Albomoz, another union republican and president of the University of Madrid. Deputies of the parliament, in a tense five hour session, decided 238 to 5 the former president had misused his constitutional rights in dissolving the last cortes, and thus was automatically relieved of his post, under article 81 of the constitution. Martinez Barrio, as president of the cortes, automatically became interim president of the republic.

While the investigators scanned .he wreckage after trudging up a muddy trail, relatives of the vic- Jms came to a Uniontown morgue o claim the mangled bodies. Dennis Milligan, a department of lommerce investigator, said a pub- .ic hearing probably would be'held a. Uniontown in a day or twOj with a more extensive inquiry in Pitts- mrgh later. He declared: Seek Possible Causes. "It is our duty to delve into the possible causes of the accident, check over it quickly, and to piece ogether the probable story of the accident." The three survivors are in the Uniontown hospital. Doctors said all had good chances to recover. They are Nellie Granger, the little heroine-hostess of the California bound transport, Mrs. Meyer E. El- enstein of Newark, N. J.. and C. C Challinor, of Cleveland and New York. Among the dead are the two who could have told most about the battle with the fog--the pilots. The investigators checked al that remained of the giant craft after she ploughed through thickets and rocks for several hundred feet Lies on Its Side. The transport lay on its side, with one wing protruding into the tre tops above shapeless shambles of the fuselage. Sorrowing parents took away the bodies of the three of the four cade' victims from Valley Forge (Pa. military academy. They were on their way home to Pittsburgh for Saster vacation. They are Charles H. Smith, D. 0. August and Crawford Kelly. Relatives also removed the body of Stanley H. Bayersdorfer to Steubenville, Ohio. For hours Bayersdorfer was be- ieved the only man to survive the crash. Hours later, at the Union- own hospital, the man who escaped dentified himself as Challinor. Petite Nellie Granger was the leroine of the disaster. Although njured herself, she stumbled miles through the underbrush to a forest warden's home. Remains With Injured.

Te minutes earlier Pilot Ferguson, en route from Newark, N. J., radioe he was flying through thick-weath er by his instruments and would no land at Pittsburgh. Jack Frye, president of Transcon tinental Airways, said in New York the Sun Racer was flying on a spe cial radio beam but was 50 miles of its course. Frye said that about the time o the crash another TWA plane, eas bound, was delayed in landing be cause of interruption of a radi course beam for interspersions o weather reports. He said withou further information he could no say whether a beam interruptio could have contributed to th wreck. Beacons AH Right. The commerce department 1 Washington said, however, a chec on beacons by an air commerce bu reau pilot showed them to be "accurate and functioning." The report added two commercial pilots also reported the beams all right. Lieutenant Pickering and other investigators who reached the desolate mountainside seven miles from Uniontown soon after Miss Granger's report said the big transport crashed with terrific force. One wing apparently was ripped off by the limb of a tree while the ship skimmed the hilltop. It hurtled on to tear through a hundred yards of underbrush and scattered pieces of wreckage for hundreds of feet. Xo Fire In Ship. I The hostess and two survivors I were in the rear of the Sun Racer nd to that fact they-owed their ·es. That part of the ship did not atch fire. Challinor from the hospital told f fire breaking out.

Miss Granger said she found im on the ground after she made er way out of the door, and placed blanket over him. Made Her Unconscious. She told Frye in a telephone con- ersation that the impact made h»-t nconscious, and added: When I came to I could see the ky above me. There was a, gaping o'le in the top of the fuselage and he wreckage was strewn in every irection. "I got up and walked--only a few ace's, I think. Then. I heard a man all. He was outside the plane. I rabbed a blanket automatically ind went over and spread it over um. "I heard a woman cough, she was Mrs. Ellenstein. I pulled her away rom the plane at just about the ime it started to blaze." The little brunet heroine then egan her hunt through the forests or a telepnone. She went to two abins without success. Phones to Pittsburgh. Finally'she reached the home of Mrs. R. E. Addis and telephoned to C. A. Williams of the TWA in Pitts- urgh---four hours after the Sun Racer was due there. Rescuers hurried to the spot of he air disaster from all around the lountryside. They ripped off unburned pieces f the Sun Racer's wings to make stretchers for the dead. Then it became necessary to cut a path through the thicket to a muddy old mountain road.
