"REFUGEES FROM IRUN POUR OVER THE FRENCH FRONTIER. -- Taking with them as many of their household chattels as they could carry, refugees from the Spanish town of Irun poured over the French frontier at Hendaye in a constant stream following the rebel ultimatum to the Government defenders of Irun. Young and old were in the tragic procession of people who had abandoned their homes to rebel guns. Photo shows refugees at the French customs post on the frontier. "
