Denver Crowd Told Recov
ery Set Back Two Years.
Speaks Monday.
B> the Associated Press.
DENVER, October 31. — Former
President Hoover, calling for the New
Deal to “lay its cards on the table,"
headed for California today, where he
may make a “last minute” campaign
•peech Monday night.
In an address before a Republican
meeting which filled the 3,600 seats
of the Municipal Auditorium last
night, Hoover joined in the challenge
Gov. Alf M. Landon voiced in New
York the night before—that Presi
dent Roosevelt answer their questions
respecting his plans if re-elected.
“Why does not the New Deal really
lay its cards on the table?” the
former President asked. He demanded
the President “reply in plain words”
to the questions:
“Does he (Roosevelt) propose to re
vive the nine acts which the Supreme
Court has rejected » » • has he aban
doned his implied determination to
change the Constitution » * • does
he intend to stuff the court itself
• * * will he discharge these asso
ciates of his who daily preached the
‘new order’ but whom he does not
now allow to appear on this cam
Freedom Grave Issue.
Hoover described the “transcendent
Issue” as “free men and women,”
adding, “our people did not recognize
the gravity of the issue when I stated
It four years ago.”
“That is no wonder, for the day Mr.
Roosevelt was elected recovery was in
progress, the Constitution was un
trampled. the integrity of the Govern
ment and the institutions of freedom
were intact,” he said.
The subsequent “panic which greeted
Mr. Roosevelt's inauguration,” Hoover
added, came from “realization of in
tended tinkering with the currency."
In turn, he asserted, “recovery was set
back for two years.”
Hoover departed from his prepared
text to remark: “Mr. Roosevelt lately
suggested to those who did not agree
with some of his measures that it
might be well for them to move to
some other country in which they have
greater faith.”
Mould Restore Faith.
"I would suggest instead that we
restore faith in this Government,” he
Hoover said he rejected while Presi
dent most of the ideas since adopted
by the Roosevelt administration "be
cause they would not only delay re
covery, but because I knew that in the
end they would shackle free men.”
"I rejected the notion of great mo
nopolies and price fixing through
codes. * * *
"I rejected the schemes of 'economic
planning’ to regiment and coerce the
farmer * * • I refused national plans
to put the Government into business
in competition with its citizens * * *
I vetoed the idea of recovery through
etupendous spending. * * *
"I threw out attempts to centralize
relief in Washington for political and
social experimentation • * * I defeated
other plans to invade State rights * * *
I stopped attempts at currency infla
tion and repudiation of Government
The California speech plans, includ
ing the place, were indefinite.

planes near Torrejon, to the south,
where government and insurgent arm

Anti-aircraft batteries opened fire
on the two planes which circled the
city at 3 p.m., but they were not hit.
Officials estimated the dead in the
Madrid area might reach 200 by

ing of the second raid cut short

The deaths of scores of persons,
wounded in yesterday afternoon's
sudden bombardment of the capital
and its environs, swelled the toll of
Friday's brief minutes of terror.
Official reports, following a check
of Madrid wards, disclosed 125 dead,
including 80 women and 20 children,
and 360 wounded. Semi-official re
ports from suburban Getafe indicated
42 others had perished, with more
than 150 injured.
Only 16 Identified.
Only 16 of those killed in the cap
ital itself were identified.
The authorities hastened to quiet
panicky reports with the assurance
that insurgent airmen and not house
top dynamite throwers were responsi
ble for yesterday’s havoc.
The rumors spread from the fact
that no one heard the drone of the
Fascist “blackbirds of death” before
the bombs fell.
The aerial massacre, claiming mostly
women and children as victims,
stunned the city with its sudden, un
heralded descent.
No siren alarms were sounded. No
droning hum warned of the arrival
of the high-flying bombers.
Mothers idly basking in the sun,
watching their children play in a
public park in the Glorieta del Bilbao
district, suddenly saw them ripped by
bursting shrapnel.
Eleven children were mowed down
while playing in the Plaza Progreso,
and the whining fragments of steel
inflicted gaping wounds among nearly
a hundred grownups in the same area.
Bomb Heart of Madrid.
Spinning down from a great height,
the bombs struck with amazing ac
curacy in the densely-thronged side
streets just off the Puerto Del Sol—
the “Times Square” of' Madrid—and

Nuncio opposite the Apostolic Nuncio's
“I have never had to perform such
a gruesome task in all my medical
experience as piecing together the
mangled heads, arms, legs and torso
picked up in the village streets of
Getafe,” said Dr. Duncan Newbiggin,
head of the Scottish ambulance unit.
“I treated six women, four men and
eight children. I don’t know how
many others were hit.”
One of the bursting charges, fall
ing in Preciados street, killed two
occupants of an automobile and a
woman standing in a nearby door

she was talking.
Housewives on their way to mar

fully awakened to the fact that the
war has entered a ‘‘cruel and des

described it. The days are past when
householders ran out into the streets

which effected little damage.
Throughout the night, the capital
was tense, with excited militiamen,

The Madrid battle fronts themselves
were quiet as government troops rest

The newspaper Claridad today pub
lished the text of proclamations as
sertedly dropped by insurgent planes
on previous raids, reading:
“Spaniards! The capture of Madrid
by Nationalist (Fascist) troops being

A naval source stated Italy’s posi

Mediterranean as follows:
“In 1935, when the British home
fleet steamed into the Mediterranean,
Italy, preparing to meet any eventual

ficiency in history, ably supported by
the air force.
“If the home fleet was a bluff, the
bluff was called. Britain stopped and
looked. She saw that the Italian fleet
was in a certain inferior ratio of
strength to her own fleet, but was
capable of Inflicting tremendous dam
age, with the help of Italy's superior
air fleet.
"So large a portion of the British
fleet might be destroyed that Britain
would cease to be In the first line of
naval strength.
“Britain Arms Frensiedly.”
“Britain did not put the bluff, if
bluff it was, into effect, and Italy won
out in Abyssinia.
“Now Britain is arming frenziedly.
She saw that her ratio or superior
strength was not sufficient, and she
wants to Increase it.
“But Italy saw that by having a fleet
at a certain ratio of strength with re
gard to the British fleet she could keep
the British from striking.
“Now she intends to maintain that
ratio. As the British build, Italy will
build, the ratio will remain the same

much as England to maintain the

Whether East Coast seamen will join

SAN FRANCISCO, October 31 UP).—
A spreading maritime strike held nearly
150 vessels in coast ports today,

than 20,000 new workers to the idle

Ships heading for ports from San

commerce faced a spread of the walk

immediate indication of success.
The strike had repercussions in far

plans of hundreds of seagoing pas

movements. It even threatened to in
terrupt foot ball schedules.
Over 100 Ships Tied Up.
Last midnight 57 vessels were strike

North Pacific ports, including Seattle
and Tacoma. Wash., and Portland.

the New Orleans waterfront. There
one group of marine workers, com

struck against the Luckenbach Gulf
Steamship Co. and Swavne & Holt,
T. J. Darcy, spokesman for the
strikers, said 1,400 longshoremen
holding contracts with other com
panies would not be affected.
Baltimore, Md.; Mobile, Ala., and
Houston, Tex., were enmeshed in the
strike movement last night.
Spreads to Baltimore.
Union officials in Baltimore said
seamen of ships docked there had
voted to strike for demands which
included control of hiring halls, a
focal issue on the West Coast. West
ern employers want continuance of
joint operation. It was estimated 600
men would be involved in the Mary
land port.
Gilbert Mers, president of the
Maritime Federation of the Gulf, said
at Mobile 100 seamen and 350 long
shoremen had voted to strike at noon.
The "rank and file” group of seamen
voted in Houston to strike in support
of West Coast sailors. Wilbur Dickey,
business agent for the Houston local
of the International Seamen's Union,
termed them an "outlaw" group.
Mayor Angelo J. Rossi of San Fran
cisco, proclaimed an "emergency" here
and said it was his intention “to avail
myself of such (charter) provisions as
may be necessary for the purpose of
meeting the existing emergency."
He appointed Attorney Florence M.
McAuliffe to represent him in negotia
McAuliffe headed the Mayor’s Emer
gency Committee which functioned in
the 1934 strike, climaxed by a mass
union walkout here which virtually
paralyzed usual activity in this and
other bay cities, where the population
totals 1,300,000.
Officials of both sides, declining to be
quoted, expressed belief the situation
would remain status quo until Monday.
Then the United States Maritime
Commission is due to reopen an in
vestigation of the Coast's long-troubled
water fronts.
“I'm going to try to get them to

Labor Secretary Edward F. McGrady,
who led in bringing peace out of the
1934 conflict, but vainly strove to pre
vent the present one.

Honored on Retirement
Charles J. Berner, left, receiving from Michael J. Maher
of The Star composing room, the fishing tackle presented to
him by his colleagues on his retirement in recognition of one
of his chief pleasures.
Berner began working in The Star composing room in
1893. He set type and ran a linotype machine until yesterday
when he finally consented to retire, but under protest. Berner
is 81 and lives at 129 Twelfth street northeast.
