Tipton authorities believe they have had a report on the meanest low down thief which ever worked ; in any community. . Several days ago, some mongrel stole two pet .chickens belonging to "Wendy" the little i niece of Mr. and Mrs. Frank McNew on North Main street. The -child who is less than three years of age, was taken into the home of Mr. .and Mrs. McNew when the mother died, when Gwendolyn was but a ;|«w days old. ^. ; The chickens were great pets Qf the child and she delighted to feed; them and play with>) them. They were so tame she could pick them^up anywhere. ! :< | The police would like to have a look at the ^kind of a person who would steal the ch'lld's pets. for ....

However, Jacques Dumesnil. French minister, of Marine, and A. V. Alexander, first lord of the admiralty, tackled the problem and it was^.expected Prime Minister Ramsay > MacDonald, : of Great Britain, and Aristlde Briand; French foreign ' minister, would meet again to discuss the situation. .. Interlocked with • the Anglo- French question was the Italian attitude, since the British do riot ,wish to make a security pact with France unless Italy participates in some. form. Both Briand and MacDonald < were to have met Dihp Grandi, chief Italian delegate •> today, but Grandi [developed a bad chill and intrusted matters to the Italian ambassador. This left matters, somewhat in the air, since Grandi's approval is necessary for any vital decision. - ' It had been expected that today might determine whether there was any,use continuing to strive for a five-power pact, but in view of Grandi's illness this {decision may be delayed! • '•! !
