MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY THM PAFER OF TWO SECTION ONE NO 21 DEATHS IN AIR RAIDS PASS 165 MARK SIRENS WARN OF SECOND ATTACK AGAINST MADRID Socialists Stop Rumor of Housetop Dynamite Throwers MADRID shriek of air raid sirens sent terrified Madrid street crowds rushing pell mell for shelter Saturday afternoon as deaths from Fridays insurgent air raid passed the 165 mark However no planes appeared immediately The warning was sounded at 1 p m Two hours later at 3 p an other air raid warning cut off an Associated Press telephone call be tween Madrid and London The sound of sirens could be heard over the telephone but there were no accomoanying explosions before the communication was The deaths of scores of persona wounded in Friday afternoons sud den bombardment of the capital and its environs swelled the toll of Fridays brief minutes of terror Official reports following a check oT Madrid wards disclosed 123 dead including 80 women and 20 children and 360 wounded Semiofficial reports from subur ban Getafe indicated 42 others had perished with more than 150 in jured Only 16 Identified Only 16 of those killed in the cap ital itself were identified Hundreds waited in line before the city3 morgues to try To identify the dead The authorities hastened to quiet panicky reports with the assurance that insurgent airmen and not housetop dynamite throwers were responsible for Fridays havoc A government statement that an inhuman and unexpected bombard ment did the killing inspired a measure of confidence after many persons had declared bombs had been thrown from housetops and that a load of dynamite had ex plodedduring the height of the ter The latter contention apparently was based on the fact that a column of smoke shot up over Fuencarral street spreading a pall over the city Airplanes Not Heard The rumors also spread from the fact that no one heard the drone of the fascist blackbirds of death be fore the bombs fell The aerial massacre claiming mostly women and children as vic tims stunned the city with its sud unheralded descent No siren alarms were sounded No drowning hum warned of the arrival of the high flying bombers Mothers idly basking in the sun watching their children play in a public park in the Glorieta del Bil bao district suddenly saw them ripped by bursting shrapnel Eleven children were mowed down while playing in the Plaza Progreso and the whining frag ments of steel inflicted gaping among nearly a hundred grownups in the same area Drop 10 More Bombs The black painted fascist planes first at Getafe a suburb and then sped on to unleash 10 more bombs over the heart of Madrid itself Spinning down from a great height the bombs struck with amazing accuracy in the densely thronged sidestreets just off the Puerto del Times Square
