neither one could be located at a
late hour.
Gittings failed to return home from
his place of business after an argu

them he did not take a nearby moon
light excursion boat as he originally
Intended, but went to a bus terminal,
bought a ticket for Philadelphia and
left to try to find the colored man
Who had threatened him. He returned
to Baltimore Friday evening, he said.
The 22-year-old youth's abandoned
car with a note addressed to his wife
was found near the Potomac water

The colored employe who was said
to have threatened Gittings was ab

The note to Gittings’ wife read:
•‘Dear Kitt: I can't stand these hours
any longer. I am through. I am

Official Designation Due.
Official designation of these States
£ as portions of the drought relief area
* was expected to follow soon.
"• In the present official drought area
£ of the Northwest 42.500 families will
" receive Federal aid. Tugwell said
that if conditions became more seri
S ous. 116,000 farm families, or 464,000
»Individuals, would be dependent on tj.e
Federal Government for aid by De
cember 1.
The present estimated number who
will need aid in the five-State area,
Tugwell said, and the peak in the
event drought conditions become more
critical, by States are, respectively:
South Dakota, 18,000 now; 35,000
farm families by December 1; North
Dakota^ 15.000 and 40.00C; Montana,
4 000 and 12,000; Wyoming 1,500 and
4.000; and Minnesota, 5.000 and
25.000.
The Federal official after traveling i
some 500 miles through the drought
area of Central North and South Da
kota, and through the Western South
Dakota range and bad Lands country,
left late today for Belle Fourche on
the Western State border. He planned
to swing into Eastern Wyoming and
Montana.
Conference Is Held.
He held a conference with Resettle
ment administrators for the : egion
and from South Dakota and Wyoming
before leaving Rapid City.
The addition of the 11 States to the
present official drought area places
farmers of those States in the position
of receiving feed loans, and gives com
munities an opportunity of obtaining
loans or grants for drilling wells as
announced by Tugwell "esterday pfter
a conference at Pierre.
A maximum of $900 was placed on
feed loans to farmers at that time,
with a State average of $500. He
also announced an immediate grant
of $350,000 to put the relief pro
gram into effect in South Dakota and
added that other States in the area
would be aided similarly, with added
grants as the need develops.
RECORD HEAT RECORDED.

Nevada was the hottest spot in Mis
souri. with an all-time record of 117

It was a searing 121 in Predonia,
Kans., and sister cities of that State
broiled In temperatures almost as
hot.
With mo6t of the victims reported
in the Oklahoma-Missburl-Kansas
area, the death toll built up in 15
days of almost unprecedented heat
reached 4,481.
Scattered showers and the entrance
of cool air tonight boomed Minnesota's

Grain prices slumped with the
mercury in response to the rains’ re

on the Board of Trade here after
booming 30 cents in a month-long
drought market. Wheat moved down
In sympathy.
Rains Surprise Forecaster.
The rains came as a surprise to
Weatherman J. R. Lloyd, who ex
plained:
‘'Weather signs yesterday pointed
.•"te a hot week end, but a low pres
sure area from the Dakotas moved In

Where human deaths were fewer and
^srtp losses higher.
No immediate relief was in sight, the
weatherman said, for South Dakota,
Nebraska or Kansas, but temperatures
were due to drop over most of the
remaining North Central States.
Showers Are Predicted.
He forecast local thunderstorms to

farmers at work on W. P. A. projects.
Gov. Walter Welford of North Dakota
voiced a need for more aid. In a letter
to United States Senator Gerald P.
Nve he suggested that the Federal
Government free the farmer from his
heavy burden of old debts. The Gov
ernor said 80 per cent of these were
controlled by Uncle Sam in loans.
In the com belt, the picture was
brightened by the rain. Com growers

Government drought relief officials
In Washington moved yesterday to
Increase emergency employment in
distressed areas of the Great Plains
States and to conserve all forage
available for live stock.
W. P. A. Job Quotas Raised.
Aubrey Williams, deputy adminis
trator, announced that the Works
Progress Administration employment
quotas in the Western drought areas
had been raised from 50,000 to 65,000. !
The increase brings the total of jobs |
to 25,000 in North Dakota, 25,000 in j
South Dakota, 6,000 in Montana, 6,000
in Wyoming and 3,000 in Minnesota.
At the same time reports were re
ceived here that approximately 22,000
iarmers naa Deen given w. r. a. em
ployment during the week In those
five States.
The Inter-departmental Drought
Committee studied further revision of
soil conservation compliance practices
to embrace the entire Western area
producing forage as nurse crops for
soil-conserving crops. Officials said
all Western farmers participating in
the soil conservation program will be
allowed to cut for hay any grain or
other straw-producing crop grown as
a cover for legumes.
That privilege previously was
granted farmers in officially designated
drought counties, without penalty to
prospective Government awards for j
soil conservation practices. The order !
extending it to the entire region was
expected to be signed the first of next
week.
Western Senators Irked.
Two Western Senators, irked at
what they called "dilatory tactics,"
called upon national live stock and
farm associations to urge railroads
serving Western drought areas to re
duce freight rates on live stock feed
at once.
Senator Wheeler, Democrat, of
Montana, returning from Europe, in
structed his office to make the sug
gestion to the National Live Stock
Association, the Farmers Union, the
National Grange and the American
Farm Bureau Federation.
Senator O’Mahoney, Democrat, of
Wyoming, asked stockmen to appeal
directly to the railroads.
As a guide to farmers’ intentions to
plant, the Bureau of Agricultural
Economics announced a forthcoming
series of outlook statements for
certain major farm products affected
by the drought and other factors.
Reports would be released on the
poultry outlook on July 34, the bu
reau said; the dairy outlook on July
29, live stock on August 6 and wheat
on August 14.
Reports to Provide Facts.
The reports proposed to cover the
current supply, demand and price sit
uation with a view to providing a
background of facts for farmers as
an aid to them In developing their
future production and marketing pro
grams.
With a broad program of water
conservation getting under way in
Western drought States, Howard O.
Hunter, assistant W. P. A. adminis
trator in charge of drought opera
tions, told farmers and live stock
owners that his agency was without
authority to drill wells on private
property or for private use.
The statement, Hunter said, was
made In reply to scores of appeals on
behalf of farmers in areas where an
acute water shortage has developed.
He added, however, that W. P. A.
could meet the needs of drought areas
through projects providing for im
proved public water supply, with res
ervoirs and other facilities on public
property.

Spanish, Revolt Assures Right
Of Nation’s Firm Conservatism
, t ' .. . ... m
* Ai * , • «r
Ex-King Alfonso XIII9 Brooding in
Exile9 Retains Hope and Spurs on
Adherents at Home.
NEW YORK, July 18.—The mount
ing tide of unrest in the Spanish Army
which flared into open revolt in Span
ish Morocco today gave fresh hope
to the right wing of an early re
turn to power.
Although only the most sanguine
of the extreme Right regard a resto
ration of the exiled former King Al
fonso XIII as even remotely pos
sible, they are confident Spain is pre
dominately conservative and will re
sist, by force if necessary, the pendu
lum's widening arc Leftward.
The former King, brooding in ex
ile in Italy, has not lost hope, how
ever.
He has not renounced his claims to
the throne and in frequent communi
cations to his adherents in Spain he
encourages them to continue efforts
toward restoration.
Most of the Rightists look to the
army to checkmate the announced
objective of the Communists and revo
lutionary Socialists, to implant a pro
letarian dictatorship in Spain.
Roblee’ Belief Confirmed.
The military rebellion in the Span
ish protectorate today tended to con
firm Rlghtest leader and former Min
ister of War Jose Marla Gil Roblfe’
belief that the army eventually would
rise against the Left administration.
He recently told the Associated Press
that the army would revolt unless the
reign of terror he ascribed to the
Communists and revolutionary Social
ists was halted by the government.
He predicted at the time that this
revolt "would not be long in material
izing” and that the impetus of Marx
ism in Spain would "come to an abrupt
stop.”
The reported arrest of Gen. Ramon
Franco, chief of staff under Gil
Robles and frequently mentioned as
the probable leader of a military up
rising, indicated the government
placed some credence in reports to
ui;a uplifting WRRft nguiRRi' ut umr
acter.
Considerable significance was at
tached In many quarters to Oil Robles’
sudden flight into France, coinciding
with the crushing of today's revolt,
although he himself has repeatedly
declared he never would become a
party to such a movement.
Oen. Franco's name was linked
with rumors of a possible military
coup d'etat soon after the Left elec
tion landslide last February.
Declared Loyalty.
Although he made public declara
tion of his “unqualified loyalty” to
the new Left government, he shortly
afterward was relieved of his com
mand and sent to a relatively unim
portant post in the Canary Islands.
Oen. Capas, also reported held in
connection with today’s rebellion, re
cently was arrested when his automo
bile, which he was driving in the
north of Spain, was found to contain
a machine gun and a number of
rapid-fire pistols.
He was released after he had. “given
his word as an officer” that he was
“merely transferring the weapons to
the Valladolid Barracks because he
i thought there was a shortage of arms
there.’!
Many of the Right have openly
espoused the Fascist cause under the
leadership ef Jose Antonio Primo de
Rivera, son of the late dictator.
The Fascists, despite the imprison
ment of their leaders and most of
their militant members, have been
conducting a successful war of re
prisals against the Communists and
are reported to be gaining rapidly in
strength.
Oil Robles, in a recent interpella
tion of the government on the post
election disorders, declared that he
“soon would have no Popular Action
party to head—they are all turning
Fascist.”

forces, aided by the populace, had
kept rebellious elements in check.
The cabinet, at an emergency meet
ing, named Gen. Munez del Prado
as inspector general of Morocco, where
the outbreak was first reported.
Indalecio Prieto, leader of the semi
moderate Socialist group, and Fran
cisco Largo Caballero, a prominent
Socialist leader, attended the cabinet
session, although they are not mem
bers of the government.
Afterward. Casares Quiroga con
ferred at length with President Azana,
who has been called Spain* "strong
man."
20.000 REBELS IN CONTROL.
Gen. Francisco Franco Heading Up
rising in Morocco.
TANGIER. July 18 <jP).—A rebel
force numbering 20.000 men held com
plete control of Spanish Morocco to
night after seizing the chief military
posts throughout the area, refugees
reaching here reported.
The rebels were headed by Gen.
Francisco Franco, military governor
of the Spanish-owned Canary Islands,
300 miles west of Morocco.
Detachments of Spanish and Moor
ish regulars surprised the guards at
military posts and compelled them to
j surrender. A young officer who re
j fused to turn over his command to
I the rebels was killed on the spot,
refugees related.
All loyal officers and their fam
ilies were at first imprisoned, persons
1 fleeing from the region stated, but
j later they were sent in trucks to the
frontier of the Tangier international
zone.
None of the refugees was hurt.
They could give no details of any
Incidents.
PUBLIC SERVICES HELD.
Military Plane* Bomb Rebel* In
Newly-Won Place*.
CASABLANCA. French Morocco,
July 18 C4>).—Rebellious troops, an
gered at anti-Fascist measures in
Spain, were reported in control of
Spanish Morocco tonight.
Striking swiftly, the military forces
-- -
assumed domination of public services
after fighting, in which nine persons
were reported killed.
Travelers from the cities of JJelilla,
Arzila, Elksar and Larache in Mo
rocco were the principal sources of in
formation, as strict censorship was
declared on cables, telegraph and
telephone lines.
Military planes bombed the rebels
in their newly-won positions, the
ministry of the interior at Madrid
announced.
Revolts Reported Crashed.
The revolt, officials at the Spanish
capital asserted, was crushed shortly
after its inception, although conflict
ing reports later told of fresh in
surgence in the North African ter
ritory.
A general strike at Larache added
to the unsettled situation, travelers
arriving in French Morocco from the
Spanish area said.
French sources gave unconfirmed
reports the rebellion was spreading to
Spain itself with fighting at Cadiz,
Seville, Burgos and Barcelona.
The rebellion was characterized as
a “Fascist movement1* inspired by the
kldnap-murder early this week in
Madrid of Jose Calvo Sotelo, monarch
ist critic of the Spanish Leftist gov
eminent ana asset-tea Fascist leader.
First reports of the revolt described
the location of the outbreak as near
the international bridge, 15 miles
from Tangier.
Flee to French Territory.
Fleeing from the disorders, resi
dents of Mellila and other towns*
: crowded into busses en route for the
French territory. Military escorts,
they said, were provided by authorities
in the Spanish territory, but their
statements did not make clear whether
1 civilian or military officials held con
trol.
The frontier was later closed and
busses from the scene of the rebellion
were turned back with their pas
sengers.
In Madrid, officials declared "certain
generals in Spain" were responsible
for the uprising while denying the in
riirgent movement had met "co-opera
tion" on the mainland.
In an official communique, the gov
ernment reported "a new criminal at
tack has been frustrated."
"Part of the army in Morocco has
risen in arms against the republic.”
