Actually it was only Italy that was shaking a fist. A few days before the members of the Ital- ian military mission headed by Gen.  Ebrlco Tellini. which with llke mis- sions from France and Great Britain was engaged in delimiting the Grace- Albanian frontier, were ambushed and assassinated between Janina and Santl Quaranta. Greece had been ex- tremely dissatisfied with certain find- ings ff the mission, and the fact that the Greek delegate who always ac- companied the Italians was absent when the crime was committed con- vinoed Italy that it was a Greek po- litical plot. Premier Mussolini therefore instruct- ed Minister Montagna to present to Greece a written note in which Italy demanded : "Ample excuses from the highest military authorities. "Solemn funeral ceremonies in the Greek cathedral at Athens to be at- tended by all the members of the Greek government. "Honors to the Itqlian flag on the part of the Greek fleet. Some units "of tim Italian fleet will be sent to Plraeus expressly to receive a Greek salute of 21 salvos. "A thorough investigation and cp- ture of the assassins within five days of the acceptance of this note. "Capital fpunLshment for the crim- inals. "An indemnity of 50,000,000 ltre (roughly $2,500,000), payable within five days. "Military honors tO the victims as they are put aboard an Italian war- ship for return to Italy." Mussolini den]anded a reply within 24 hours, and his overnment at once got busy with its army and navy. Part of the fleet left Taranto hurriedly under full steam for an unannounced domination, and other units were con- centrated at Cape di Leuca, the point of Italy nearest to Greece. Huge mass meetings were neld in various Italian cities and there were demon- strations against Greeks, but little vio- lence. In her reply to this ultimatum Greece rejected demands four, five and six, which Were considered too hu- ralllattng. Demands one, two, three and seven were accepted In modified form. The lnterallied council of ambassa- dors met in Paris and sent a message to the Greek government declaring that It reserves for the powers the right to make-known eventually the penalties and indemnities which may be Judged necessary in connection with the killing of the members of the Ital- ian boundary mission. The British fore office, sis0 got busy at once, making extraordinary efforts to pre- vent hostilities. It was understood that in case of a deadlock with Italy, Greece would propose to refer the en- tire matter to the League of Nations. Italy was aggressive in two other quarters. To the astonishment of the other powers, she suddenly, entered the Tangier question, landing a few sol- diers in that African town and an- nouncing that she nust be considered in the settlement of Its future status. which is to be made by England, ance and Spain In conference in London. Mussolini also had made de- mauds on Jugo-Slavia for a settlement of Flume affairs satisfactory to Italy, nd his virtual ultimatum expired Fri- day. It was reported that Italian troops were mobilizing in Flume. enough were elected to enable them to carry out this plan. ISSISSIPPI also had what amounted to / an election last eek--the runoff primary of the Dem- ocratic parry. The contest for 'the governorship was between Henry L %[hltlield, former president of the State College for Women, and Theo- dore G. Bilbo,' former governor. The former was victorious by about 15,000 VOteS. EFORE this is in the hands of the reader Chancellor Stresemann o Gemnany nmy have resigned in order that passive resistance in the Ruhr nmy be abandoned, for it is held in Berlin that he cannot capitulate offi- cially, and at the same time it is ad- mitted that the nation cannot hold out much longer in its course of opposi- tion to France and Belgium. Three things are hreaking down Germany's resistance---the cost and scarcity of coal. the financial situation and file failure of Bavaria to co-operate. The Bavaritm officials have made demands on Stresemann whioh he can hardly accept, and it is believed Bavaria may secede from the Gernmn confederation if "the chancellor undertakes to put through his program of dictatorial measures. ,Industrial leaders of the Ruhr and the Rhineland .have consented to a scheme of gradual abumlonment of the passive resistance, and this may lead to discussions between Germany and France. It was held significant, als(, that a permit was granted for a meeting of representatives of Prussia, Btvhr Saxony and other German states with the, R htneland conaisslon at Eohlenz. B 'S ELGIUM  reply to the British note was delh-ered last week..rod was nor very pleasing [o either Frantic off Great Britain. It upholds France ou the Ruhr occupation, but hits France by suggesting that Germany's pay- ments should be divided among the allies in proportion to their respec- tive material damages. Adoption of the s.uggestion means that Belgium's war ravaged zone would-be repaired at Germany's cost, whlle France would lose penslons for 1,600,000 killed and 2,000,000 badly wounded soldiers. Bel- gium would sacrifice pension for ,- 000 killed and 40,000 mutilated, OL. ERNEST P. BIOKNELL, Col. R. E. Olds and W. G. Pearce, Amer- ictus" delegate to the International Red Cross conference in Geneva, got as far as Paris and then' refused to proceed because of a statement in a Swiss committee report that was con- slderbd offensive to the United States. This read: 'rhe international Red Cross com- mittee ds not believe that in the do- maln of Red Cross work supremacy of influence must belong to those who are most powerful financially. Money, which permits creation of function- aries, is certainly useful, but it must not give them the impression that they are the masters of an lnstltutlon such asthe international Red Crs." This was taken as a direct slam at America becauss of the founding of the League of Red Cross Societies by the late H. P. Davison of J. P. Mor- gan & Co. and the fact that American money made up 75 per cent of the funds needed for that organization's operatiOns last year.

"HE DIED GAME'" HEN a man of the old frontier came to the end of the trail there was but one valedictory for him if he was one of the true border breed --"He died game." A party of buffalo hunters was sur- rounded by hostile Indians in the Yeliowstone country of Montana. The ballets of the savages had shattered the leg of one of the hunters so badly that he could not ride. If his com- panions stayed with him, as they of. fered [o do, It meant the death of them all. He asked for his revolver and, al- though they knew why he wanted it, they brought it to him. He put the muzzle to his temple and pulled the trigger. The cartridge did not ex- plode." The hunter looked at the weapon curiously. "That was tim first time it ever failed me" he said quietly. Then he/rolled the cylinder one notch--and this time It did not fail him. Once some Texas cowboys who had made a semi-official punitive expedi- tion across the Rio Grande were cap- tured by the Mexicans. General Santa Aua ordered that they should draw from a jar filled with black beans and white beans to determine who of their number should face a firing squad. Major Cooke who had just passed hls thirtieth birthday, plunged his hand into the jar and drew out a black bean. "Well," he said with a smile. "they rob me of only 40 years." Another Texan, named Henry Whal- ing, looked at the death sentence which .he held in his hand. "They don't make much off of me. I've killed more than 25 of their yellow- bellies" 1 said with a touch of pr.lde In his voice. Up on a Michigan river a crew of lumber Jacks were trying to break a log jam. They were "dry-ptcklng," slow, laborious work under the Jum- bled nmss of timber that towered 40 feet in the air. Under the very face of the mass was a young fellow named 31mmy Powers. Suddenly tlere was a roar and the mass of logs lurched forward. A dam upstream had broken. In a flash Jimmy Powers rea4ized that he was trapped. So he Jerked off llls bat- tered old felt hat and hurled it de- fiantly in the very face of the solid wall of logs and water that poised over him for a second. "So long, fet- Iowsl'" spectators on the banks above Montana buffalo hunter. Texas cow- boy, Michigm lumber Jack--frontiers- men all--they died game` THE MEN WHO FOUGHT ON SKATES HEY fought on water but they were not sailors, For the water was. the frozen surface of Lake George In New York and they were "Rogers' "Rangers," commanded by Maj. Robert Rogers, one of the most successful eolonlal leaders who ever fought under the British flag against the French. In January, 1757, Rogers was de- tailed to the special task of harassing the enemy around Ticonderoga and Crown Point. The Ranger leader equipped his men with skates upon which they sped over the ice on In- numerable daring raids under the very guns of the forts. They burned houses and 'barns, they slaughtered cattle and t1ey captured sledge-loads df provlslons intended for the garrl- sons, One day near Ticonderoga Rogers discovered a sledge moving across Lake George and sent his lieutenant, John Stark--the Stark-of Bennington fame later---to intercept it. A moment later ten more sledges aplYcared but, discovering. Stark's approach, their drivers immediately put about to flee. In an instant Rogers' men had clapped on their skates and started In pursuit. Stark had already overtaken the rear sled but it soon became evident that the bigger prize was about to escape. One gfter another the sledges crossed the llne of safety intil all except two had swept past. Just as they were aboutto rech the goat, Rogers, who was a little In advance of his men. unslung his gun, Never slackening for an instant his terrific speed, he threw the weapon to his shoulder and fired. One of the horses crashed to the Ice hut it was carried along by its mo- mentum for a hundred feet before its mate became entangled In the har- ness and fell. In a moment the Rangers had surrounded the driver and made him prisoner. The lust sledge also;fell an easy victim. The race between horse and man had been won by man. Knowing that "the drivers who had escaped woutd arouse a pursuing party, - Rogers immediately ordered a retreat. Within a few hours the Preach and Indians were swarming all around them. After an all-day fight in @hich many of the Rangers were killed and Rogers hlnasetf se- verely wounded, they finally beat off their attackers and. in a retreat filled with hardship and danger, managed to make their way back to Fort William Henry.
