Fascisjm- A11 jls In Turmoil Survey Indicates AH Europe In Throes of Social Strife By FREDERICK Kl'H (Copyright 1936 by United Press) London. Sept. 10 ?'U.R??Sensa tional events in Europe empha sised today the growing gravity and bitterness of the struggle b> | tween communism and fasck.ni on the continent. Outstanding developments in : eluded: A thundering speech before tin Nazi party congress in Nurcmlx rg where German Propaganda Min ister Paul Josef Gcebbeis said "bolshevism must be annihilated if Europe is to survive." A determined effort by the Por tuguese government to prevent the spread of bolshevism from Spain. The Portuguese ordered all civil servants, teachers, bank ers and members of the armed forces to take an oath against communism. A reported round-up of com munists in Italy, denied by the press ministry. New strikes in France where communists demanded that I lie French popular front support the Madrid government. Increasingly bitter warfare in Spain where rebel forces repre senting fascists, right republicans, the church and monarchists struggled to stamp out the Marx ist government. Diplomats in London watched the European scene with growing concern. They analyzed the vio lent speech made yesterday at Nuremberg when Fuehrer Adolf Hitler proclaimed Germany as (he leader in the world fight against bolshevism. In diplomatic quarters here Hitler's speech was regarded as indication of the increasing ten sion between Germany and soviet Russia. Many believed that if tin campaign by Germany against Russia with a crusade against communism as the pretext con tinued. international complica tions were inevitable. Observers believed the world armaments race must be terminated if a clash be tween the reich and the U. S. S. R. Is to be prevented. Even England was not free of the repercussions from the ciass struggle raging on the continent At Plymouth the trades union council, after heated debate, de feated a left wing resolution de nouncing the policy of non-inter vention in Spain. The defeated resolution demanded that Demo cratic governments support Spain. ON Gl'ARD Scranton. Pa.. Sept. 10. ? (U.R)?

He hoped that Basque national ists and other conservative ele ments in the Biscay coast cities would succeed in controlling an archists, saving the area from dy namiting and incendiarism. Five fires raged in Bilbao, while conservative elements strove des perately to stamp out anarchist uprisings. While keeping a watchful eye on San Sebastian. Mola decided to ailow the civil populations of Irun and Fontarabia tb return to Iheir burned homes tomorrow to sal vage what few belongings they could. Rebel forces have suc ceeded in putting out the last fires in those towns. Upon orders from the war office in Madrid, 625 hostages were taken from prison and placed aboard a boat in the harbor.

American warships which aided in removing more than 1,000 United States citizens to safety from war torn Spain have bpen ordered to leave Spanish waters immediately and proceed to nearby European ports to await further retcue or ders. Secretary of Statq^Cordell Hull announced today. He said United States diplomatic and consular officers were instruct ed to remain at their posts in Spain as long as they could do so safely. They have been given discretionary authority to close their offices tem porarily and depart to places of ?afvty if conditions warrant such action, Hull added. Viitual completion of their rescue miction was given by Hull as the reason for the removal of the naval vessels. It was noted, however, that the action came ten days after a mysterious airplane had bombed the United States destroyer Kane off :lie Spanish coast. While Hull mad? no mention of the bombing in his statemant today, the incidrnt is believed to have emphasized .the potential danger of permitting the ship to remain indefinitely in Spanish waters and to have accel erated their removal. The four ships ordered by the navy department to weigh anchor immediately are the cruiser Quincy. flic destroyers Kane and Hatfield, and the United States coast guard cutter Cayuga. The Quincy and the Cayuga will go to the British forti. fled port of Gibraltar. The Hatfield and the Kane will anchor in French ports easily accessible to Spanish coastal towns. The vessels will stand by pre pared to make a quick dash to the Spanish coast to rescue diplomatic or consular officers or any of the 100 remaining Americans, most of whom are destitute and living in thp interior of the country cut off from access to the seaports.
