PAGE-MIGHT ang and Dictator of Spain Primo de Rivera of Spain Wants to Gel Out but Doesn't Dare'Drop fteins j By MII.TON KKONNEK NE* Service Writer LONDON—Just ns Ihc toy who: caught hold of (he crab didn't know ' how to lei KO. So General Primo de Rivera of Spain, having grabbed the pswcr sis years ago, does nol yet- know how to let BO of the dictatorship. If this situation were taking place In any other country of Europe, it would almcst be safe lo predict that botli dictatorship and monarchy would be discarded and that a republic would ensue. But nil predictions, (all In Spain. 'Oils Is partly because the mass of the t:ople are inert anil illiterate and, morn to. because the army always has the deciding Voice,' When the army was favorable to. Rivera six years ago, lie grab- ted > power and dismissed the Parliament. Now tlmt the army Is 'up the dictatorship, he announced he would call n National Assembly and place before that body a written constitution which he had had ; drafted by experts. • The National Assembly was largely hcmiwsed of his own men. There was an outcry about this nnd he then.offered to miike it more representative of ihc tuition by giving 49 sents to ex-Premiers, ex:Speakers of the former Senate and Chamber of Dcpu'lcs. delegates of the royal academies, imj- . verities, labor unions and other b:dlcs, Nan Badly Received Never was n dictator so shipixxl in the face. The former Premiers nnd Speakers held aloof. The College, of Lawyers of Madrid ndrled .insult tc injury by electing Cluer- ra, at Mint time still a prisoner, nnd (wo pDlltScnl exiles, one' of whom Is lurlmps Rivera's greatest political enemy. . The University of Vnllodlld took a mighty'whack at the dictator by i electing as its reurcscnlallvc (lie | celebratct} Professor. Miguel Una- muno. one of the greatest living Spanish writers, a bitlcr enemy of Rivera, who once was sent by him .to exile. He escaped anrl IKW lives. gradually being wcnncd away from him, he hus suddenly discovered that he is weary of power snd wants to step down and out. j No doubt the king would like to I get rid of Rivera, but he is watch- : Inc'his step, lest in bouncing the Dictator he' may also denl a dendly olowti the monarchy itself. Got Off to Good Start For .a timo many of the tilings that were written down in the bock of -Spain were lo nivem-'s credit. He gave Spain something like" real eovernmnrt. He liquidated she weary and costly war in Morocco by j:lnlng up with France and beating the RlfTs. He encouraged the modernization nnd Am-i ericarilzation of Madrid. He gnve ] an impetus to railway building in : Spain. He tried to push industry and Increase the wealth of the agriculturists. But lately there hnve been many things on the debit side. He expected, the great expositions nt Barcelona and Seville lo bring a stream ot money into the country. Instead, they will cost Spaiil big sums. He tried to stabilize .the peseta. Instead, the money of the country js al the lowest cl)b In Ihe international markets that it has been .since we went to war with Spain, freed Cuba, took. Porto Rico, and made a money payment for tile Philippines and Guam. Army Is Deserting Him To add to his troubles, the army has shown signs of breaking away from him.
