Greater restorations for the Public service and a Cut in unemployment tax Are con Cessions which seem certain to be included in the budget to be presented by the Premier or. Dunstan in the legislative Assembly on tuesday. Today indications were that last minute efforts would be made to give the Public service a greater measure of restoration than was originally in tended. Or. Dunstan will meet his ministers on monday and Cabinet will then de cide whether on the figures to be presented More generous treatment will be Given the Public servants. Restoration of service salaries would affect nearly 10.000 officers exclusive of police. Cabinet at present seems to favor full restoration up to �312 a year with percentage increases ranging from 20 to 25 per cent thereafter. This however does not satisfy the Public service hence the efforts to seek greater improvement. A 10 per cent Cut in the unemployment Relief tax is another anticipation. I fears Over interference in Spain May Lead to grave International crisis Britain shows concern revelations that the Spanish fascist rebels have obtained fighting aeroplanes from Italy and Germany for use against the Republican government of Spain have Odin Sci a in tinn in the capitals of Europe. The civil War in Spain threatens to create a grave International crisis. The presence of foreign planes in Spanish Morocco is regarded with the greatest concern by the British govern ment which is doing its utmost to persuade other Powers not to interfere in Spain. London saturday i while the government hitherto has had the Best of the struggle the defeat yesterday by the rebels of a loyalist Olumn marching on Saragossa. And a j Lew attack on san Sebastian a North i Oast town Loyal to the government ave added to the ominous uncertainty. Fourteen foreign aeroplanes Are reported to have arrived in Span ish Morocco for use by the rebels. At least seven of these Are believed to be italian machines while three Bear the Swastika Emblem. It is reported that 10 italian planes left Sardinia for Morocco. Of these two made forced landings in French territory. The first crashed near Oran Algeri and three of its occupants were killed. The second plane came Down at Mou Louya nine Miles from Oran. Its six occupants who Are said to be italian officers in civilian clothes have been interned by the French authorities. Both these two planes were Savoia Marchetti with 700 horsepower Alfa Romeo engines. These planes were painted White without Marks of identification which is contrary to existing air conventions. They were intended for military Pur poses As they were equipped with tur rets for four machine guns and contained quantities of ammunition. A third Olane is believed to Jave crashed in the sea. The other machines Are believed to have reached the Span ish rebels. Grave View in France these events seem to have borne out the statement on wednesday by the Spanish rebel Leader Gen. Franco that he was about to receive Aerial assist Ance to prosecute his invasion of Spain from Morocco. The gravest View is taken in France of these developments and the air minister has gone to Algeria to investigate. In the chamber of deputies m. Montigny declared that the euro Pean inaction was worse than in 1913, and events in Spain might react gravely on other european countries. Messages from Rome say that the italian government is inquiring into the reports that planes have been sent to help the rebels. Meanwhile no offi Cial statement will be made. In the House of commons late yesterday the under Secretary for foreign a stairs lord Cranborne admitted that the situation in Spain was Caus ing the British government serious anxiety. Loyalist defeat the Spanish government admits the defeat of a loyalist column under col. Perez Ferras which was marching to Saragossa from Catalonia. It ascribes the reverse to Lack of Unity among the leaders but probably the nondescript character of the forces and their inferior equipment com pared with that of the rebels Contri buted to the defeat. While the rebels have superiority in Ong Range Field guns and Trench mor ars they Are outclassed in the air the i government s fast bombing planes con a dually carrying them. A rebel column now threatens Al 3ardo. 15 Miles from Madrid. Another j Olumn menaces Navace Rrada pass in he Guadarrama mountains which was recently recaptured by loyalists. To Aid in the defence of Madrid j a battalion of 1,000 women armed i with rifles with women officers has been formed. It will relieve the militia sent to the Northern front. Moroccan rebel troops from Seville n the South of Spain under col Saenz de Braga have captured Baena Lear Cordoba. The workers militia which defended the town sustained heavy losses at the hands of the trained j rebel troops. Twelve thousand insurgents under col. Ortiz Zarate have begun a fresh attack on san Sebastian on the Bay of Biscay coast. The town is defended by 25.000 government men. But they Are inferior in discipline and equip ment to the rebels whose artillery is now bombarding the City and adjacent villages. J at Barcelona in the North East where the government is now in undisputed control the dead Are officially stated to be 1,000. And the wounded 3.000.

Menzies British policy although War probably is not imminent the general european situation is far from Bright and the International stale of mind is deplorable. This is the impression formed by the Commonwealth attorney general or. Menzies who reached outer Harbor from England in the Strathairn today. Or Menzies said that Germany s War preparations were exaggerated by propagandists but the air was full of talk of War of revenge and of glory. Civilisation in Europe seemed to have slipped Back a generation. The Gravity of the situation was reflected in the tremendous change in British policy and in Public opinion on rearmament. Great Britain was deter mined to show the world that they were wrong who believed the Abys sinian failure to be the result of her inability to Back up her words because of naval and military weakness. Germany the Crux Germany was undoubtedly the Crux of the european problem or. Menzies said and Hopes of permanent peace de Pended upon getting her Back into effective discussions with other great Powers. It would produce a much healthier state of mind if Germany s grievances were categorically stated and examined but she should be made to Realise that her disposition to Dis regard treaties was largely responsible for the widespread suspicion of her motives. It was hoped that the coming Revi Sion of the league of nations Cove Nant would have a bearing on the Ger Man question. There was no doubt or. Menzies said that in great Britain there was a special regard for Australia and new zealand partly because they were so much More British than other dominions from the racial viewpoint. At the same time there was a tendency to regard australians As people who wanted it both ways who knew what they were entitled to get but not what they were obliged to give. Meat agreement the satisfactory agreement reached with British ministers on the beef Export Trade should provide for any reasonable expansion of the australian cattle Industry in the next few years. There appeared to be a limited amount of room for expansion of australian exports to great Britain but any Large scale development would have to await the restoration of world Trade especially the return of Ger Many to the world s buying Market. British manufacturers were keenly interested in the possibility of establishing new industries in Australia tonight or. Menzies attended the Centenary reunion dinner of the Mur Ray Bridge . Sub Branch afterwards boarding the express for Melbourne. In the course of a sum Mary of european affairs he described threats to world peace As arising from mental causes rather than economic ones
