Extremists Seek Extermination of Capitalist Class Copyright 1936 By ixe Associated ITess HENDAYE FrancoSpanish Bor advices brought here by refugees from Madrid Tuesday stated theSpanish capitals extrem ist execution squads had killed well over middle and upper class citizens The executions even have in creased the advices said since Fran cisco Largo Caballero became prem ier little more than a month ago Bands of bloodthirsty young the refugees said are responsible for the executions The travelers described the death squads as the Spanish counterpart of the French SansCulottes of 1789 who with bloodsoaked tumbrils daily fed Madam Guillotine with aristocrats 82 Slain One Day While the municipal morgue squads figure for corpses collected on the outskirts of Madrid reached a record one day low of 15 early in September it soared to 82 one day a fortnight later Cabellero became premier on Sept 4 One explanation of the increase the advices said might be found in new friction over political conces sions between the revolutionary so cialist government and the syndical ist national confederation of labor with Satelitte the federation of Iberian anarchists The role of free ance executioner the refugees said is second nature to the avowed gunmen in these two organizations but the members of the popular front parties and unions regard it with loathing Says Police Hoodwinked

treatment of persons known to have fallen into its clutches Tuesdays advices said Many persons have been executed they added despite official efforts to save their lives are cheka as surances to the authorities that no harm would befall them Tragic evidence that the execu tioners aim at the extermination of the entire capitalist class is pro vided the travelers continued by the number of persons of liberal convictions found every day at dawn on the capitals sandy out skirts shot with a savage Bullet Riddled Corpses Day afterday they said scenes at the execution areas in the univer sity city at Cuatro Caminos and on San Isidro hill with mothers and their children discussing shopping over cuUet riddled corpses reveal Spain in the raw For a period of less than four weeks from Aug 14 the advices said police headquarters collected in a dozen bound volumes the pho tographs of 250 unidentified dead men and 32 unidentified dead wo men Each photograph showed a corpse just as it had been found The Madrid county council offices collected similar photographs of 127 men and six women Their still uni dentified remains had been discover ed in the sinister suburban villages of Fuencarral Getafe Vicalvaro and Villaverde the advices said Ruse of Executioners A favorite ruse of the execu the refugees continued is to accost suspects in the street segregate them and obtain from each privately an account of the conver sation they were holding when at costed It may be the sources said if the accounts do not tally Many rightists still are in danger if they venture abroad the sources said describing the arrest of a fi nance ministry employe in a central cafe Two syndicalist militiamen tap ped his shoulder and asked to see his papers Like a hunted animal they said the cringing suspect complied but the militia apparent ly not satisified as to his identity invited him politely to come to Screams at Captivee I refuse to go with cried the suspect in a voice which the refugees
