THE DETROIT FREE PRESS TUESDAY, JUNE 7, 1938 Raiders Keep France Tense Premier at Frontier to Bolster Defense PSRPIGNAN, France, June 6 (A. P-) F-douard Daladier, France's "strong man" premier, today toured the frontier in -personal effort to put French nti-aircraft defenses on a war footing. Aroused by three aerial Incursions from Spain within 12 days, the Premier, who also holds the portfolios t-f war and national defense, flew to the south from Paris. Arrivinf at Toulouse, he set out at once on an automobile tour of the mountainous borderland four and a half hours after a squadron of planes from Spain had circled over France's Cerdagne Valley In the Central Pyrenees. Warning shots from French antiaircraft batteries caused the nine planes to wheel about after 10 minutes of flying over French soil. One report said the three blanks were fired, then three loaded Shells. Leftists Fire at Them As they crossed the border, Spanish Government antiaircraft batteries at Puiccerda fired more than 100 shots at them, without scoring a hit but indicating that Government troops believed the planes to be enemy craft. France's antiaircraft defenses already had been tightened to prevent repetition of a fifty-mile Bombs a Blessing VALENCIA, June 6 (A.P.) Air raids brought a blessing to Valencia today thousands of pounds of fresh fish. Rebel air raiders, dumping bombs hastily to gain altitude, struck a huge school of fish in the sea. Valencians in bathing suits and boats thankfully gathered the freshly-killed fish. invasion yesterday by nine planes of "unknown nationality" which unloaded their bomb racks near Ax-lcs-Thcrmes. No bombs were dropped today. The Mediterranean border to- n of Cerbere was bombed May "6, and Paris protested to the Insurgent Spanish regime, ''hree houses were destroyed and two Frenchmen were injured. Is Strengthening Border Turposes of Daladier's trip were understood to be to install bases for pursuit planes along the border and to increase the efficiency of antiaircraft batteries. First of the moves came late tonight as a contingent of French infantry was dispatched from Tarbes to Pamicra, armed with 15 antiaircraft guns, to augment defenses along the eastern por tion of the frontier. The long peaceful French -Spanish border, with the Pyrenees torming a natural barrier between the two traditionally friendly nations, had been unfortified for centuries. Since the outbreak of the war France ias installed antiaircraft batteries behind Carbere and Bourg-Madame, the two principal BEST KERCHCVAL AVE.

(Sign your name here) Street Town . railway gateways to Catalonia, but otherwise has erected few defenses. At Burgos, Insurgent headquarters, the general staff issued a statement today asserting that no insurgent planes had been closer than 100 kilometers (62Vi miles) to the French, frontier. The insurgents were suspected because in yesterday's raid and the raid on Cerbere the two rail lines running into Government Spain from France were bombed. France protested officially to the Insurgents over the Cerbere raid. Rebel Air Raiders Kill 84; Three Are British Seamen ALICANTE, Spain, June 6 Insurgent air raiders swept down the Mediterranean Coast today, leaving at least 84 dead and 300 injured in a bomb-pocked trail from Castellon de la Plana to Alicante. Alicante reported 30 dead 'and 118 injured; Valencia 17 dead, many Injured; Segorbe 12 dead, 30 Injured, and small coastal villages 25 dead, approximately 100 injured. Alicante's dead Included three British seamen aboard the British freighter St. Winifred when it was struck and set afire. The ship was damaged in a previous insurgent raid a fortnight ago. Over 400 Die in Week Today's raids followed a week of bombardments along the coast in which more than 400 persons were killed, resulting in new protests from neutral nations. The St. Winifred was the seventh foreign ship wrecked or sunk by the insurgents in the last 10 days, and some foreign shipmas. tcrs have given up the lucrative Spanish Government trade. However, daily arrivals both at Alicante and Valencia still are reported, indicating that the costly air attacks are far from accomplishing their purpose of stopping the Government's flow of foreign supplies. Leftist Lines Hold Firm Meantime the leftist strongholds of Alboccar and Mora de Rubielos, mountainrrimmed buttresses in the path of Generalissimo Francisco Franco's drive on Valencia, were subjected to the fiercest bombardment of the war along the Mediterranean. The two towns between Temel and the sea, separated by 40 miles of ragged mountains and cork' screw valleys, are the keystones of the defense works of Castellon de la Plana, Sagunto and finally Valencia. Insurgent shellings and bombings failed to dislodge Government troops holding lines of concrete trenches and machine-gun pill boxes around the besieged towns, & CO.

The State Department, an official said today, is considering Great Britain's invitation to take part in an international investigation of bombings in Spain, but no reply has yet been drafted. The invitation was presented to Undersecretary Sumner Welles by British Ambassador Sir Ronald Lindsay. Sweden, it was announced in Stockholm, has accepted the British invitation in principle. Norway was reported favorably disposed toward it. The British Government also told the State Department today that four young Americans who fled from Spain as stowaways on a British ship would be sent back to the United States. They had been fighting in the Leftist army, and shipped aboard r freighter at Gibraltar last month. Ordinarily they would have been returned to Gibraltar and thence probably to Spain. The State Department asked their release partly on the plea of Mrs. Sally Keeler, of Laguna Beach, Calif., the wife of one. Los Angeles Hails Detroit's Shriners Escort Parade Opens Conclave Today By Joseph M. Maloney LOS ANGELES, June 6 Detroit Shriners alighted from their three special trains here this afternoon to receive a pompous welcome from the fez-topped gentry that has stormed this city from all directions in North America. Totaling nearly 600 persons, the Detroit group was hailed by welcoming bands as the largest party at the sixty-fourth annual session of the imperial council of the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. Frank H. Tout, illustrious potentate of Moslem Temple, headed the delegation from the motor capital. Some West Coast reporters asked Mayor Reading to amplify his attitude toward C.I.O. unions. Detroit Shriners were busy Mon day night getting ready for the escort parade which officially opens the convention Tuesday morning. The only casualty of the .trip re quired amputation of a small por tion of one of Harry Hale's fingers after it had been crushed In a car door. Dr. Albert A. Hughes. Wayne County coroner, performed the operation as the train tra versed New Mexico. Hale will march with Detroit Arab Patrol Tuesday. Connie Bennett Wins Art Case on Technicality LOS ANGELES, June 6 (A.P.) Constance Bennett does not have to pay Willy Pogany for the portrait he painted of her. Superior Judge Jess E. Stephens instructed the jury today to bring in a verdict for the actress. He made this ruling, he explained, on the ground that Pogany had agreed to paint the picture for $500 and, therefore, if he had cause for action at all, it belonged in Municipal Court. Miss Bennett smiled broadly when she heard the instruction, but the jurors did not. They filed out of the courtroom and gathered around Pogany, telling him how sorry they were that they had not been given a chance to bring in a verdict in his favor. Juror W. B. George, Jr., said, "It was a beautiful painting. We would have returned a judgment for $5,000, if he had sued for that much." Pogany claimed that Miss Bennett promised him $3,500 for the picture. After several alterations had been made, she refused to accept the oil because, she testified, Pngany made her thigh too large, her eyes to bulgy and her shoulders too round, and her mouth had an unnecessary "curli-que." Overwork Breaks Down Belle Isle Elephant Scale The twenty-ton scale at Belle Isle, used for weighing fuel, fodder and the elephants, has broken down and has been condemned by the Bureau of Weights and Measures, Henry W. Busch, commissioner of the Department of Parks and Boulevards, reported Monday to the Council. The Council authorized the transfer of $1,115 to replace the thirty-year-old scale and a horse-drawn mower at River Rouge Park. Ocean Ships ARRIVED NEW YORK. Jur',' fsiMnrn f;!(Wiw; I.a.-ur.ia an?

The Government scored two victories today in the Harlan antiunion conspiracy trial. The first was a ruling by Federal Judge H. Church Ford, reversing a previous decision, that the Government could introduce as evidence testimony given by certain of the present defendants when witnesses before National Labor Relations Board hearings. At tonight's session, Judge Ford dismissed a citation for contempt of court against J. M. O'Lcary, Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. The G-man had been accused by the defense of interfering with .the gathering of evidence to bolster the defendants' case. Government attorneys said that today's ruling was the first since enactment of the Wagner Labor Act in which a Federal judge had ruled whether labor board testimony subsequently could be used in a criminal proceeding against a witness. Judge Ford upheld the Govern mcnt contention the witnesses did not testify under compulsion before the NLRB. Defense Tries to Discredit a Victim in Tampa Flogging BARTOW, Fla., June 6 (A.P.) Attorneys defending five former policemen charged with kidnaping in the Tampa flogging case sought today to show a jury that one of the alleged victims, Eugene F. Poulnot, had said that he would testify to anything that would insure the defendants' conviction. Poulnot was connected with the Modem Democrats, a political or ganization which entered an un successful ticket in a Tampa mu nicipal election. He is head of the Florida Workers Alliance. He identified three of the defendants as the men who had abducted, flogged and tarred and feathered him and two other men. One of the others died shortly afterwards. The defendants were acquitted of second-degree murder charges in his death. Ford Co. Request Refused by Court COVINGTON, Ky., June 6 (A. P.) The Sixth United States Circuit Court of Appeals denied today a Ford Motor Co. request for oral arguments June 10 on issues arising through its contest of a National Libor Relations Board order against the firm. The court announced that It would be unable to consider the case on its merits in the June term the last before a summer vacation and ordered that arguments be submitted in briefs. Frederick W. Wood, of New York, Ford counsel, contended that the board's failure to answer questions in the case entitled the company to a "coniessea judgment," but NRLB counsel countered with an assertion that no answer was necessary inasmuch as a court order granting the board permission to withdraw certain records had removed the litigation from the tribunals jurisdiction. Stoker Seller Convicted for Fraudulent Signature Prosecuting under a seldom-used law, police Monday obtained a conviction against Vernon Rives, 1 42 years old, of 11430 Goethe ! Ave., of obtaining a signature fraudulently. He will be sentenced June 13. Fyves was arrested on complaint of Louis Cohen, of 2750 Grand River Ave., who testified before Recorder's Judge Christopher E. Stein that he had given $40 as a down payment on a stoker which was never delivered. Cohen found Rives was not a representative of the stoker company. Seven other complaints In Detroit and four In Ann Arbor are pending against Rives for a total of $500, police said.

MacTaggart to the Highland Park City Council drew caustic comments Monday night from a woman in the audience. The woman's remarks elicited applause which was silenced by Mayor Blaine T. Colman at the insistence of Councilman W. Ray mond Lane, who defended Mac- Taggart's appointment. Monday's meeting was the first attended by MacTaggart since he was appointed and sworn in at a special meeting last Friday afternoon. The only opposition to the appointment came from Mayor Colman. MacTaggart, of 121 Sturtevant Ave., Highland Park, succeeds former Councilman Maurice Mac-Mahon, who resigned two months ago. MacTaggart was also appointed to MacMahon's former post of welfare commissioner. The Council voted a two-week vacation with pay for Thomas Boston, who was fired by Mayor Colman last Thursday after serving four years as director of industrial relations.

The Cash family returned to! business today and this hamli't ' slipped Into routine ways and fading hopes for an early solution of the Jimmy Cash kidnaping. Federal agents released the only two men that they were known to be holding while a handful of men continued a last-chance search of the islands south of here. James Bailey Cash, Sr., reopened his filling station and lunchroom for the first time since his five-year-old only child was abducted a week ago Saturday. Mrs. Cash, who shares her husband's conviction that the boy was killed, could be seen sitting just inside a window, apparently engrossed in sewing. The men released were M. F. Braxton, unemployed rrinccton carpenter, and his son James, a Cape Sable commercial fisherman. Today a small biplane flew over Princeton from the direction of the Keys where the boy's body is being sought. It dropped a note for G-men bfit it was surmised that It was a routine report. The usual "no comment" met all inquiries as to whether any of the $10,000 in ransom bills had been turned in. All Church Gambling Condemned by Synod AS BURY TARK, N. J, June 6 (A.P.) The General Synod of the Reformed Church in America, holding its 132nd regular session, recorded itself today against gambling In any form, for more stringent regulation of the liquor traffic and against high naval and military appropriations and export of munitions. The Social Welfare Committee condemned gambling, "be it carried on under the auspices of the church or the state or charity or for private gain." Raising of tax money through public lotteries would be a "disgrace to the Christian forces of the land," the report said. Pennsylvania WPA Chief Wars on Shovel-Leaners HARRISBURG, Pa., June 6-(A.P.) J. Banks Hudson, director of the WPA in Pennsylvania, cracked the administrative whip today in an order intended to check loafing on work-relief proj- j ects. WPA directors in the state's j 16 districts were instructed to stamp out shovel-leaning. Crash Injures Baby An eight-months-old baby, Elaine Manendez, was in a grave condition Monday at Henry Ford Hospital as the result of a Sunday night automobile crash at Ann Arbor Trail and Haggerty Road. The child is the daughter of Armando Manendez, of 1972 Scottcn Ave., who escaped injury. John Venuto, of 9133 Goodwin Ave., driver of the other car, was detained by sheriff's deputies for investigation as a reckless driver.

With the aluminum company are 60 co-defendants, including Aluminum Ltd., its Canadian affiliate. Defense attorneys disagreed with the Government counsel's assertion that the word "monopoly" signified the ability to fix prices, control markets, exclude competitors and perpetuate domination. The defense argued that Supreme Court decisions had indicated that monopoly meant exclusive control of supply sources.
