AMBASSADOR SILENT AFTER INTERVIEW WITH STALIN MOSCOW, June ed States ambassador Joseph E. Davis kept diplomatic silence today after his two-hour talk on world affairs with Joseph Stalin. x Stalin, secretary general of the communist party with no official title in Soviet Russia's government, disclosed the inter- view in a rare communique.

Stalin was wearing his cus- tomary light tan uniform and black boots. Davies was in a black business suit. They sat at a long table in Molotoffs office apparently the table used at soviet cabinet meetings. j WITH RAIDS' TOLL SET AT L500----- uled for tubing either late today or j Warning Shots Fired By Guns Spanish Loyalists Describe Planes In Second Invasion As Rebel Bombers PERPIGNAN, Francs, June territory was invaded again today by bombing- planes from but prompt warning shots from French anti-aircraft batteries sent them back across the frontier after a 10-miaute flight over France.
