North of course doubled it. When East bid 2-Clubs, South should have passed, to give North a chance to double that. Had he done so, it would have been set much more than a not-vulnerable game was worth. South erred badly, however. Over the 2-Clubs, he showed his second suit with 2-Diamands. With the opponents now shaken off the limb onto which they had climbed with West's bad bid, they were pleased to pass thereafter, as North, then went to 2-No trump, South 3-Diamonda and North 3-No trump, a cinch contract but sad in comparison to the luscious double that had been in sight.

As a whole, the army was no more. Thousands of troops had crossed the frontier yesterday and their rifles, pistols ond machine guns littered the roads of France where they had dropped them at the command of French troops. Scores of Loyalist airplanes had arrived at French airports. Twenty- four landed at Carcassone alone. A fleet oE SO crossed the border end split up to seek airports. Since two days before Christmas the Loyalist army had been battered by 300,000 Moorish, Italian and Spanish infantry, backed by German and Italian airplanes and Italian artillery and tanks.

The situation was one of the creat- est confusion. Members of the Loyalist government did not know the whereabouts of other members. Troops awaited only safe evacuaiion into France. Civilian - refugees cowered under 'he bombs that rained down on town and village. Terrible allegations came from the loyalist side--one, disseminated by the loyalist press agency, that '.at Gerona women were killed m the_siieels"and 'crowds rounded up to' face 'firing squads." French sent~~urgent messages to the Loyalists "urging safety for upwards of 3,000 Nationalist political prisoners whom 'IKey'had taken north when Barcelona was lost.
