LONDON, April 13.
At least 37 persons were injured in riots in Bir mingham slums last night. Several hundred men and
women fought with razors, bro ken bottles, sticks and bricks until police forced them apart. The trouble flared up with drunken brawls. Five of the injured needed hospital attention and two others were treated in the street by doctors. More than 30 were given first aid on pave ments for cuts and bruises. It was the fourth serious clash in the area to two years. Five men charged with wounding with intent to maim, disfigure or disable, were re manded to custody for eight days. Police refuted a story, pub lished to the 'Daily Mail,' that colored people had been in volved in the riots. The police said that to their knowledge no colored men at all were involved. The disturbances were confined to local families of white people whose identities were known to the police.
