(UP) — officials today regarded the .battle between 16.000 Communists and several thousand police last night as the most ominous »!*n In France since UM liberation. It was feared that such fighting would Increase and spread over the nation with the situation drifting straight toward a showdown between the Communists and anti- Communists. Neither side showed any sign of backing down. Last night's lighting started only a few hours after middle-of-the- road Premier Paul Ramadler, pleading for his government'before ihe national assembly, had warned that If the country Is split Into two camps: "there will be civil war and It will be the ruin of Prance." Tlie Communists congregated on the Avenue Wngrnm, on Paris' West End, to break up a meeting "for people oppressed by the Soviets," which was called by Gustave Gautherot, a prewar senator. , Police beat them with clubs and rifle butts down the avenue Into the plnce de Tonics, where mounted Republican guards broke up the crowd. Fourteen truckloads of regular army troops stood by with machlneguns to take a hand If the Communlst| refused to go. At least- 20 demonstrators were hurt and a few police were wounded by pieces of pnvement that the Communists pulled up and threw, several demonstrators were arrested Miey beat at police with clubs wrenched from wooden barricades flan* Wivcfcosr* Foiimf In Mountainous Region SYLVA, N.

As the "only authorised spokesman of the Screen Writers Guild," he asked permission to make some motions, He wanted Producer Jack Warner recalled in order to establish that he left Warner Bros, studio voluntarily and not at,Warner's request. Warner told the committee last week that he let several writers go because he-did not like their political ideas. The committee took the request under advisement. Lavery then said he wanted to reply to "mistatements" he asserted film writers John Charles Moffltt, Morrle Ryskind, and Lavery, president of the Screen Rupert Hughes made last week about him. He particularly .denied Ryskind'§ testimony that the tulld under Lavery was Communist-controlled, and Hughes' "serious implication that I was a Communist masquerading as a Catholic." * Thomaa accepted the denial for the record. ... Stripling asiced Lavery if, as guild president, he had "observed any Communist infiltration."
