Wednesday, September 22.—<U.R)—Recurrent rumors that Japan’s mighty air fleet, which threatened to destroy this capital by aerial bombardment, planned to wipe out the civil and military population with a gas attack spread panic $mong thousands of Chinese today. Pear of a gas attack increased when the Chinese military command ordered all gas masks throughout the city confiscated for military purposes. The rumors increased tension in the city, whose inhabitants have been fearfully awaiting the threatened Japanese raid for nearly two days. SHELTERS ERECTED Hundreds of coolies worked throughout the night tearing up sidewalks in the business section to construct dugouts affording at least half the city's population some semblance of shelter if the great Japanese air armada carries out its threat to blow Nanking off the map. Military experts said many of the dugouts were death traps, and pointed out that collapsing shelters killed as many Chinese as the Japanese raiders did yesterday in their second ‘preliminary raid” on the city. GAS MASKS EXHACSTED Drug stores were besieged by Chinese and foreigners, seeking to purchase makeshift £auze “masks” on which an anti-gas preparation is poured. Tlie city’s supply of the needed chemicals, which are effective against gas for only 15 minutes, is nearly exhausted. Tension in the foreign colony was ircroased by a rising resentment agf inst Americans because of the evrcuation of the United States [embasry to the gunboat Luzon, anchored in the Yangtse river. The handful of Americans regaining in the city were subjected iy.o a series of near-insuits, not only by the Chinese but by other foreign nationals. as hours pass?d following expira-I tion of the Japanese zero hour for beginning the “destruction” of the city by an aerial bombardment, the ! Chinese population was increasingly nervous and the fear-complex exhibited itself in dented criticism of the United States government and Americans generally. TO BE HEARD By Margaret Lewis (Program Notes in today's Concert are Printed on Page Two). Opportunities to hear great symphonic and operatic music will again be offered students and faculty this term through the Listening Hour, a program which will be played on the new Scott radio-phonograph in Bovard auditorium beginning at 3:30 p.m. The importance and popularity of this program caused the administration last spring to approve purchase of new equipment for its presentation. “The campus as a whole, we hope. will make this new machine its own by using it through the Listening Hour program. Attendance can j never be too large. We want every- I one to come and enjoy this expe- 1 rience of great music,” Miss Pauline j j Alderman, professor of music and j I director ol the program, said yes- i I terday.

September 21. — <U.E>— Major Julian Troncoso, Spanish rebel commander, who was arrested by French secret police in connection with the attempted “hijacking” of a Loyalist submarine was removed to a jail in Bayonne tonight when 1,000 rebel troops threatened to cross the border and exact reprisals. Squadrons of French mobile guards were rushed to the Pyrenees frontier after Troncoso had told authorities that his arrest was “A veritable declaration of war on Nationalist Spain.” TRONCOSO INVOLVED Troncoso, right-hand man of In-surgent Generalissimo * Francisco I Franco, was said by police to have been involved not only in the at-j tempted hijacking of the Loyalist j U-boat, C-2, at Brest but in theter-i rorism of “Les Cagoulards,” French secret society of hooded men. The Rebel major, military commandant of Irun. opposite Hendaye on the Franco-Spanish frontier, said | that unless he was released immediately and allowed to return to Spain, the French consul at San Sebastian, J. E. Lesmartres, would be seized as a hostage. INSURGENTS THREATEN The 1.000 insurgent troops, red-capped requetes of Franco’s monarchist divisions, were reported to have agreed to break through the barricades at the International bridge tomorrow and storm the unprece- | French commissariat at Hendaye unless their leader is released. Police revealed that a woman provided the Surete Nationale. France’s Scotland Yard, with the information that led to the major’s arrest as he Spain across bridge.
