Prime Minister Baldwin called "a mad dog attack." In the capitals of other members af the League of Nations similar plans were being laid by mili- tary and naval attaches. Turkey came into line with the other presumptive opponents of Italy, but is reported to have made a sugges- tion that France doesn't like. This is that it be permitted to fortify the Dardanelles, the strait between Eu- rode and A~iatlc Turkey which was demilitarized under the treaty of I~tnsanne after the World war. The Turks also. according to Paris sd- ~vle~, ask the eventual return of the island of Rhodes in the Aegean sea, which has been under Italtan sov- er~gnty since 1923.

Well, sir, those auto stories are just beginning to show up now. Not many of them---not nearly as many as I would like to see. But enough to show that, at least, I wasn't entirely wrong in my guess I've got another auto story for you now, incidentally, and--well--it's the funniest sort of automobile yarn you ever heard of. Because Harris Budner, the man whose story it is, wasn't even In the car when things started to happen to him. lie got his adventure. Just by standing alongside of a gas-buggy. Now 85 East Bennlnflton street ia the address of the cobbler shop that he has run on the same spot, in East Boston, for 37 years. And It was right there that his adventure took place on the sixth of Aug. ust, 1934. "It still seems like a dreadful nightmare," he says. "It Is the one experi- ence of my life that I am lucky to be alive to tell." It was a hot. muggy August da;, and through the windows of his shop, Harris could see tint it was getting dark a bit earlier than usual Storm Clouds Cast an Ominous Darkness. Taking a look at the sky, though, he saw the reason for that premature darkness. Storm clouds were gathering overhead, shutting out the sun. He started putting away his tools and cleaning up hie shop. It was seven.thirty, and time he was getting home. But before he had finished, a car drew up in front of the dooP and a young lad came in and asked him if he could repair a torn auto top. Harris had done many a Job of that sort so he picked up a needle and thread and one or two other tools, and went out to the curb. In Which Harris Is Abducted. He stepped on the running board and reached over the imitation leather top, looking for the tear. His hand probed the smooth surface in vain. There was no tear there. In an instant Harris knew that something was wrong. But before he had a chance to move, he felt a push from behind. The lad standing behind him shoved him Into the rear seat of the car and four men, hiding inside, covered him with a couple of heavy Electric Shoe Expert Shoe and Harness Satisfaction Guaranteed For Cut Flowers, signs, Bride's Boul anything in Flowers.
