MADRID. March 15—<lT.P>—Fascist demonstrators tonight fired a hail of bullets against the home of Francisco Largo Caballero. Socialist leader and former minister of labor. Caballero was not injured. The attempt on his life was believed an outgrowth of recent bloody political riots throughout Spain resulting from the Leftist victory in the parliamentary elections. So far. at least 25 persons have been killed and more than 10 injured. Caballero has been in the center of the political struggle since long before the left wing victory. As leader of the Socialist party, he announced several days before the voting that if the Leftists were victorious it would be the first step towards establishment of a soviet state in Spain. Since the election, left wing adherents have stormed most of the major Spanish cities. burning churches and convents, destroying Fascist and Rightist headquarters and engaging in pitched battles with troops and police in addition to their political enemies. The attempted assassination of Caballero was believed connected closely with the incidents at Log-rono last night when Fascists and Leftists battled ior several hours in the center of the city. At least one was killed and six were wounded, three gravely. One church, five convents, a newspaper office end the Fascist, Traditionalist and Ceda political headquarters were fired. |Airship Crashes, Two Men Killed To acquaint students with all phases of graduate work and to promote a feeling of solidarity among graduate students, a reception will be given for students in all divisions of the university Wednesday, March 18, from 2:30 to 4:30 in the Hall of Nations.

Grayson and his troupe, who have been in Los Angeles four weeks after a successful tour of all southern states, have buUt an enviable record among American dance orchestras. Most recent hits have been scored at Club Victor in Seattle, Honolulus Alexander Young hotel, the St. Francis ii. San Francisco, the Los Angeles automobile show, the Palomar, and Shadowland cafe in San Antonio, Texas. Trojan Flavor A distinctly Trojan flavor is au-tomaticaUy lent Grayson’s orchestra by the fact ;.hat Hal himself is an S.C. graduate. It was as student director of Hal Roberts’ Trojan band that Grayson got his real musical start. Upon graduation, he organized his own band and scored immediately with his recording of ‘Fight On.” Most of Grayson's first engagements were playing for fraternity dances and college proms, so that Friday night’s work should be simple for him. The orchestra’s greatest movie triumph was scored in “The Big Broadcast,” a picture starring Bing Crosby. All Under 20 All members of the Grayson organization are in their twenties, it being one of the most youthful of established dance orchestras. Incidental plans for the prom, headed by junior council committee chairmen, are to proceed today, according to Sid Smith, class president and co-chairman with Grace Libby of the general committee. Bids, priced at a new .low of $2.50 a couple, may be purchased from junior salesmen and at the Student Union ticket office. grown up boy with twisted memories, as a dentist in a small mid-western town. “Snappy” Downer, a warped Uttle man and boyhood acquaintance of “Biff’s” edges the quick-tempered dentist on to reminisce about his unhappy boyhood days. Biif. enjoying his lazy reverie, becomes more convinced that he should have married Virginia Brush, the fiances whom he lost, instead of Amy Lind. “Snappy” leads him on. But Virginia married the detestable Hugo, who had plenty of money and has since become a county bank president. Biff has never forgiven Hugo, and says that he would Uke nothing better than to get his hands around Hugo’s neck. Just about this time Hugo is brought into the office to have a tooth pulled under gas. As Biff administers gas with fingers aching for revenge, the lights dim and the curtains are pulled to show his thoughts going back to the scenes of his boyhood days. The rest of the play is the story of Biff’s romance on the park bench, his near tragedy with Hugo, and the beginnings of his revengeful feelings for Hugo because of Virginia, untU the last act. In this act the scene switches back to the dentist’s office where Biff is still administering gas to the now helpless Hugo, when Virginia walks into the room. The sight of her climaxes the whole situation and results in an unexpected ending for the play. Six Ineligible for Failing to Take Examination on S.C.

Francisco Para. 55-year-old Mexican laborer, had his heart removed from the chest cavity, six stitches taken in a knife wound, and appeared to be on the way to recovery last night, with the heart seWed up inside him again. The difficult operation was performed by Dr. A. E. Saverien, night surgeon at the Georgia street hispotal, in a desperate effort to save the man’s ebbing life.

DEL RAY, Fla., March 15—(U.E) —Serges Mdivani, prince of an obscure Russian province and onetime husband of three of America’s best known women, was kicked to death today by his polo pony. The accident occurred a Uttle more than a month after he aUied himself by marriage with one of the most iUustrious names in America—Louise Astor Van Alen. of Newport and New York, descendant of John Jacob Astor. She is an immensely rich girl, who once was married to Serge’s brother, Alexis. Evil fate seems to have decided that the Mdivanis shall die violent deaths surrounded by the luxury into which they married. Alexis was killed last summer, racing an expensive car along a road in Spain. Because of an increased NYA allotment assigned to S.C. some increased assignments have been made possible,” Dr. Frank C. Touton, S.C. NYA chairman revealed last Friday. NYA officials announce that undergraduates who have applied for S15.00. and graduates who have ap-pUed for $20.00, but were assigned less, and still need the increase, may send application for increased assignment to the central NYA office, 207 Administration. Students having second semester assignments are again reminded that all reports must be in the time reports box in the information office on or before Thursday, this week, as compilation of the payroll wUl be started on that date. Because the government insists that students do not work more than eight hours per day. or 30 hours per month, the central NYA office was requested that this be considered in making out time reports, Dr. Touton said. The campus chairman also asked that students either work out fuU assignments or apply for a shorter time allotment. Otherwise other students are deprived of the privUege of working for more money, he pointed out. I Because no petitions were turned ] in for seven college offices before ; the deadline last Wednesday, the legislative council voted at a special meeting Friday to allow petitions to be turned in today and tomorrow afternoons for these positions. The office of Elections Commissioner, Tex Kahn, in 224 Student Union wiU be open from 1 to 3 pjn. today an dtomorrow for this purpose. Applications signifying the intention to run wiU be received for the foUowing offices: vice-president _ of the College of Pharmacy: vice-' president and secretary of the College of Engineering: vice-president, secretary, and executive committee of the School of Music; and vice-president of the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences. Date Not Clear The council in allowing the reopening of petitioning for these offices acted under the assumption that the advancing of the date fcr the election was not clear to some students and that it was not realized by them that petitions were due last week. The council approved the Ust of candidates with the exception of two who were declared ineligible and six who did not take the constitutional examination. Four lata petitions were also accepted. Francis Daney, who filed for the presidency of the College of Pharnr :y was ruled out of the race for not being registered in school. Bertie Nichols was declared ineligible for president of ’he Junior class. Petitions Accepted Late petitions which were accepted were those cf Frances Dunlop, for vice-president of the College of Commerce: Dorothy Moore and Rose Mazer sky, for secretary of the School of International Relations; and Bob McKnight, for president of the sophomore class. Failure to take the constitutional examination has held up the approval of the following candidates until they comply with this requirement: Charles Schweitzer. Phil Daniel, Ed KeUy, Robert Meyer. Gus Patzner, and Mike Prisler. Drama Tryouts Are Today Tryouts for the one-act mystery drama, “Murder at Marlowe’s” will be held this afternoon at 3:30 in 120 Old College.

His death wiU be commemorated on the campus in a special all-Beethoven concert which the Abas string quartet is giving its sponsors this month, and which will be presented tomorrow night in Bowne hall, Mudd Memorial.

It foUowed the first three trios for strings and piano concerto, and preceded publication of the first symphony and the celebrated “septuor.” The second Rasmoumowsky quartet in E minor Opus 59, No. 2, wiH follow. This composition, typifying Beethoven’s so-caUed second and most proUfic period from 1800 to 1814, accompanied the symphonies two to eight, the overture and incidental music to “Egmont”. and Beethoven's only cpera, “FideUo”, which was revived at the Metro-poUtan this year. It preceded the violin concerto, Opus 61.
