FROM OCTOBER 3 TO NOVEMBER 3
THE SPANISH WAR
The Menace to Europe. —The prolongation of hostilities in Spain tended to emphasize its significance as a struggle between two opposing theories of government, and also to involve other nations of Europe in which these rival theories of government are upheld. Italy and Germany, it was stated, were resolved against a continuation of Leftist rule in Spain, and the opposite sympathies of the Soviet Republic and of Socialist parties elsewhere were quite as clearly shown. At the close of October the Non-Intervention Committee at London was plunged in difficulties, as it became more evident that victory for either Spanish faction would depend chiefly in the efficacy of foreign aid.
