and no one knows with any certainty which Dr de los Rios g o v e r n ment is de as they say at the state depart ment That is is technically legal we recog nize it But is it de term which speaks for itself Gen Francisco Francos rebel govern ment certainly is de facto in a large part of Spain General Fran co is its military commander any way whether or not he intends to become its civil head if his side wins If it does win inaybe Franco will choose to hand over the nom inal rulership to exKing Alfonso or one of Alfonsos sons or to one of the Bourbon as Benito Mussolini has permitted King

loyalists and rebels Ordinarily a rebel is a radical in insurrection against ultracon servatism In Spain the ultraconservatives for generations in power were overthrown by the liberal and in part downright reel radical ele ment republicans in the house While the unofficial finish in the gubernatorial race was the closest since 1912 the real hair splitting vote was found in several ui iut

Catalans however deny that they are Spaniards Country They insist ohat Catalonia is a separate country and that they are a distinct breed of folk with a language of their own Under King Alfonso and before him the Catalans were in a con stant state of rebelior against the then conservative government The more recent liberal regime has given them a large measure of autonomy which has satisfied them fairly well Consequently today they are progovernment and vehemently antirebel Thus the government falling back on Catalonia if it cmist will be sure of plenty of aid and com fort enabling it to

will That was Mrs Lillian Kenny I represent the was the way her counsel I F Weldon K introduced his argument Mrs Kenny has borne 11 children Nine of them are properly registered as required The other two births we are prepared to The presiding Justice indicated that there would have to be unusual circumstances to convince him that failure to register the babies in the prescribed 30 day period
