King Boris is of Teutonic extraction, and he is only second in line of his dynasty. His father, Ferdinand I often called "The Fox"— was born Prince Ferdinand of Saxe - Coburg and Gotha in Vienna and was elected to the Bulgarian throne. Ferdinand took his country into the last war on the side of Germany and after the conflict he abdicated in the face of widespread disapproval among his people. Despite the abdication. Prince Boris succeeded the old man, bringing with him all the dictatorial characteristics of the Boche and of a leaning for Germany. To make it unanimous he became son-in-law of the King of Italy. fj V o , P e °P leh ave been ar- - even at that time Boris was trying 5$t«J m Sofia, the Bulsarinn cap- j through Germany to recover the rsv MacKENZIE ria, grirnmest and least j trf the enigmatic Balkans, re- i . is in the grips of one o' ' Jidse mysterious crises which de- Wfehd suddenly like birds of night y^tfiat part of the world.

But King Boris is Said gt^Have fled his capital, and if rat's so it suggests a boiling over \th«! popular dissatisfaction with S* majesty's Hitlerian affiliations. I TWottSly, and adding to the mys- ' caftan, many of the reports ite''coming from the Berlin propa- anda agencies. They say the Jtreets of Sofia are deserted.

It's something to keep |fc eye on, especially since Hun- roty, also is reported to be getting Btferheated. That's another little untry which has been making a p-rUie of the necessity of kowtow- |*ng to Germany. g;<Whatever may be going on at the moment, Bulgaria long has been displaying a rash which indicated . - seated malady. Without fishing to make a pun, let's call Je malady a complaint. That's iactly what it has been com«amt of a substantial part of the (faoomed E^OROLIN —HAIRTONtC Macedonian territory which his father had lost in the last war. Naturally when the present conflagration started he Was trotting along on the fuehrer's leash. The Bulgarians are a fierce and primitive folk. They are among the thoughest fighters in Europe. But they sometimes are slow to register their wrath. They have trailed along with Boris, but there has been much resentment, specially because of the Russian angle. Now the war has reached a crucial stage where it "looks as though there might be hot developments in the Balkans. Rumors are rife that the Allies are preparing to invade the Balkans. Should that happen. Bulgaria would immediately be involved and would in fact be holding the sack for the Nazi all highest. More to the point, from Bulgarian view, talk grows that Turkey may be preparing to join the United Nations and strike up through the Balkans with them. Small wonder that the Bulgarians should be anxious. Whether they are on the verge of revolt against their king's policies remains to be seen, but that wouldn't be very surprising. And when Bulgarians really get into action they are awfully tough. ST. LOUIS LIVESTOCK National Stockyards, 111., May 0 (/I 5 )— (U. S. Dept.
