Ill Feeling: On the diplomatic front, ill feeling between Italy as against Brit ain and France was unabated. It even went to the extent of severing: sports relations. After yes-terday's cancellation of the French-Italian football match in Paris next Sunday, plans were made also to cancel boxing, bicycling- and horse show events. The French retorted to Italy s from the El Pardo woods, seeking to wedege in behind the insurgents in Case De Campo and cut them off. Westward in the Guadalajara mountains a heavy artillery duel was going on. The Rebels shelled Hita and Gajaneros, north of Guadalajara, and authorities ordered the latter town evacuated of its civil population. The case De Campo battle was by far the most spectacular. In the crash and din officers shouted orders, urging their men on, but their voices were drowned by the incessant cannonading.

CiORfXL, U nited Presi Staff Corrripondrnl) It oiivrliht, 1!M7, b I nilrd Prml WITH LOYALIST ARMY IN CASA DE CAMPO, MADRID, April 9. (UP) Madrid's defenders opened a battering offensive west, east and north of the capital today in a supreme' effort to drive the invaders from its gates. , . With Ernest Hemingway, nov elist, and Joris Ivans, cameraman, I watched the battle in Case De Campo Park, in the western outskirts of the city. Gen. Jose Miaja, commanding: the defending army, threw the full strength of his forces into action. Under a withering blast of artillery shells and aerial .bombs, his infantry and machine gun squads relentlessly pushed the Insurgents back through the heavily wooded park. Pushing Southward. To the north another defending; column was pushing southwards ' huee sate of the park, once the property of King Alfonso. Gen. Jose Miaja, the imperturbable, bespectacled commander-in-chief of the Madrid front, sent into the battle the pick of his men, Spaniards and. anti-Fascists of many nations. The Loyalists went over the top at 4 a. m. after a night in which Nationalists, sensing the imminence of attack, blasted their lines with artillery and machine gun fire to cover the arrival of reinforcements. Fighting was general. Along the whole western side of the city, where the Nationalists had at tacked so many times in hope of driving through to the city's heart, the Loyalists were on the attack. Field headquarters here in the Casa tie Campo, directly west of the main part of the city along the Manzanarea river, said that important gains had been made on the west Nationalist side of the city. The Casa de Campo is a great park, formerly a. royal park, just across the Manzanares from the royal palace. Here, among the thick trees, the shrubbery, and in the west park to the northeast, on the river, the fighting was heaviest. Light Attacks to the robed bayonet. west side, where thousands of men, Spaniards, Anarchists, Communists, Socialists, plain Republicans; and Americans, Canadians, Frenchmen, Germans, Italians and others of the international brigade of anti-Fascists were massed for an attack. The bombardment became heavy and punctuating the big explosions came the chatter of the Nationalists' machine guns. Lights in the city winked out. Only the headlights of automobiles broke the inky blackness of the streets. But as the firing intensi fied the horizon to the south and west was lighted brightly by flashes of fire from cannon, trench mortars and machine guns. Above the angry red on the horizon shot up Verey pistol bullets, to explode eerily in the sky and descend slowly, flaming, on their little parachutes. Firing Stops. As suddenly as it began the fir ing stopped and there was an tin- j ploding shells and nuiet niiuse until the I.nvahsts .deafening. went over in hope of freeing the capitol for all time from the menace of the Nationalist siege. It was five months ago today that the International Brigade, then an unknown force even to most people in Madrid, stopped the Nationalist shock troops. Foreign Legionnaires and Moors, in the Casa d; Campo where I watched the Loyalist troops go over this morning. The Nationalist troops had inches long and three inches wide, had been found in the bathroom of the Gedeon apartment when the bodies were discovered.

As the men on the front, only f mil.! or so away from the city, moved along with the ultimate weapon, the bayonet point, the populace turned out in muss into the streets. They could hear it all. But all they could see was the airplanes overhead, 30 seconds away from the Nationalist lines. The planes swept back and forth from the battle front to the heart of the ! city. 1 The planes looked like racers ; pivoting around pylons as they ! jerked around in the vicinity of the i highest buildings. People first craned their necks at the planes, then instinctively ducked as one would dive for them. I am watching the fighting 500 yards from the Loyalist front lines among the trees of the Casi de Campo, along with Krnest Hemingway, novelist, and Camerman Joris Ivans. All around us explosive bullets are popping, interspersing the chorus of the guns with their sharp crack like the sound of giant firecrackers.

Hemingway, Ivans and I looked at each other, then simultaneously, wiped the dust from our hands on our trouser legs Veronica and President Roosevelt. The barber said the package had been left in his shop about 10 days ago by a young patron who left in a great hurry. The police began checking a number of addresses found in the envelope. Scores of "tips" as to Irwin's whereabouts continued to reach police headquarters. Men resembling him were reported sighted at various places tnroughout the country. j The police viewed as the "hottest tip" a report that a hitch-hiker, closely resembling Irwin, had been picked up near Scranton, Pa., Wednesday night and driven to Battle Creek, Mich. The hitch-hiker was reported wea-ing a ring with the initials "R. I." and a black suit with a pin stripe, identical with that broadcast in a police description of Irwin. The police believed that if the man were Irwin, he might be heading for the scenes of his youth, perhaps to a hideaway in the Rocky mountains of which he once spoks At Lockhaven, Pa., police held a hitch-hiker who said he was Francis Farmer of Syracuse, N. Y. Photographs of his fingerprints were sent to investigators here for comparison with those taken from the Gedeon apartment and from the room Irwin occupied when he ' was a student at St. Lawrence uni verslty. Canton, N. V. Sheriff Satisfied Suspect Not Irwin KALAMAZOO, Mich., April 9- (I'P) Sheriff Charles Struble said totlav he was "satisfied that a hitch-hiker who surrendered him self this morning at his office is not missing Robert Irwin, New York sculptor, sought in the mur der of Veronica Gedeon, artist'i model, and two other persons. Pending word from authorities in New York city and Philadelphia, the hitch-hiker, Robert Noble Mackalevy, 22, will be held in Kala mazoo county jail for investigation, however, the sheriff disclosed Mackalevy, accompanied by a motorist who drove him to this city, gave himself up today, ex plaining he was the mysterious hitch-hiker who left a party of three Milwaukee motorists at Battle Creek yesterday and was reported resembling the missing Irwin. "I have taken a lengthy state ment from Mackalvey and I'm satisfied he is not the man sought," the sheriff said. "Nevertheless, I've taken his fingerprints and am holding him here for investigation until I get a check back from New York." Flying Squads-- font-lulled from Pnee One they never got anything definite. This time they can come to us," he said. Strike rnreeoguizetl Harry J. Derivan, district WPA director, announced Friday that the local office was not recognizing any strike until formal notice of it was presented in the form of demands by the strikers. "This is only a small group causing the trouble," he said, "and the majority want to continue to work." Meanwhile an hourly increase for unskilled WPA labor in Montgomery county, from the present wage of 4H centa an hour, was announced by Mr. Derivan, to be effective April 13. The increase, the exact amount of which has not been fixed, will reduce the number of hours which the men must work in order to make their monthly security wage of $ti0.50, Derivan explained, but it will not affect the wage. Demands of the strike committee call for an increase of 20 percent in the monthly wage, and a 30-hour week. "The monthly security wage is set in Washington," Derivan said "and I am sure that it will not be changed." Strike to Go on" Frye said Friday that the strike will be carried on. "We didn't start this for nothing," he said. "We are going on until our demands are met." Derivan said that the hourly wage increase was the result of a survey made sometime ago, which already had been reported to Columbus with other county surveys throughout the state, before any report of an impending strike locally was heard. "If the people refuse to work" said the district director, "that's their privilege. But they will not be allowed to make up time lost, and if they do not appear on their projects for five consecutive work days they will be dropped from the project." Raise Affects 8,000. The unskilled labor rate increase will affect approximately 65 per cent of the 8,000 workers employed on WPA projects in the county. Workers who remained on the job of the Edison street project answered the strike appeal with the personal problem, "Who is going to feed our families if we quit?" "You aren't getting enough to live on now, you're starving now," the strike leader retorted. "Yes. but before we went on this job we had nothing. At least we are getting some kind of a living now," one of the workers told him. Oakzvood Near 2-Year Street) Safety Record Oakwood is nearing the end of its second year without any deaths from traffic accidents, records of the Oakwood police departments and municipal court show. Since the middle of 1935 no one has been Hiueu as me result or a motor vehicle accident in Oak wood. Only one fatality was rC' ported in 1935 and one in 1934. The record is attributed to the vigorous enforcement policy against traffic violations by the police department and Judge Fred-lick W. Howell of the municipal court.
