differences and rally to support of the throne Admiral Aznar was minister of rine in the cabinet which preceded the cle Elvera coup d'etat The new government marked a right about face In the attitude of King Alfonso who in his selection of Jose Antonio Sanchez Guerra as premier designate gave tacit consent to a constitutional con- vention which would have shorn the throne of much of its power and perhaps altogether changed the form of the Spanish government The new government while its has not been announced probably will seek constitutional re- vision but to a limited degree Like its
