"THEM GREMLINS" ARE BAD, PESKY PRANKSTERS .. .BUT THEY'RE JUST PANTY-WAIST PIKERS COMPARED TO THE "FATEEG-A-JEEBtES" By ANGUS McOGGIN What! You ain't heard of "Them •Gremlins" — also Fifinellas and iWidgets? They're in the headlines; read about 'cm in Collier's, [Time, other magazines and ncws- ipapers. U.A.F. and U.S. pilots can [tell you plenty. Kremlins are just one «[ many cinds of "little people" — some rood; some bad; some.good and )ad. The folklore of England, Scot- ami and Ireland drips with 'em ... janshccs, pixies, t,clegoats, etc. To Gremlins, bombcr-lioppinp is .great sport.They've been plaguing ! pilots over the North 6'ea. They're sore at fliers, 'cause fliers laughed 'at this so-called "myth." Ridicule • infuriates Gremlins. Hut they forget that U.S. and British fliers laugh rieht in GoeriiiR's face... evea in the face of death. An ancient Scotch legend explains Gremlins. A wicked laird hanged innocent people, buried them standing up. Their spirits escaped in Ihc form of midget beings to haunt and plague humanity. You can laugh, but you'd better not. Gremlins resent it and retaliate. Recent press reports about Gremlins have created a flood of comment and letters to editors; weird tales of dozens of kinds of "little people" arc cropping up right and left. Mysterious specie in the U.S.A.; long existent, but just discovered, are the "Fateeg-a-Jec- bics." They're really lough. 'S "Fatceg-a-Jcebies," say reporters, are "mite-men, but mighty... sonic say 'termitey'." They enjoy good mean fun. They prey only upon human beings...snipe it morale.
