appeal for milk in Spain read carefully the facts he would have gathered that the English milk appeal is not for "Spanish Nationalist babies " but on the contrary for those children who are at present under " Government " rule and who have been half starved in consequence.
As I am the person who actually raieed my voice on behalf of these children, I know what I am talking about. Here in Nationalist Spain there is sufficient food for everybody and some over. Immediately a town falls into General Franco's hands the first work of the troops and the indefatigable workers of "Auxilio Social" is to provide an abundant meal for the halfstarved inhabitants. As the number of towns thus taken is daily increasing and all such food has to come from this side of Spain because everything has been at a standstill in the other, the result is a serious temporary strain on the resources of even such a fertile spot.
This milk is to arrive here where I live at present and I can assure your "Reader " that the children who obtain it will be in the most urgent need, no other qualification will be asked for. There will be no discrimination there just as there has been none here before distributing food. As I myself will be going with the Relief Committee I shall be able to let you have some interesting sidelights on the matter and even details with regard to the children fed.
