Nada some 30,000 Germany erency if Nazi forces, Albania, entered Bulgaria. This much seems clear. Unopposed German passage to Albania, by way of Bulgaria or by any other route, is not to he expected. British air forces are poised in Greece within an hour's flight of routes by which the Germans would have to move. It also is quite likely it would take more than Turkish pledges of aloofness to crack Greek morale and induce acceptance of made-in- Berlin "peace" proposals. Terms acceptable to Greece in the light of amazing victories and the blows dealt Italy by the British in Africa would be apt to be utterly unacceptable to Mussolini. They would confess Italian defeat Nor can the Greeks overlook the fact that British sea power dominates the Mediterranean. If Greece goes out of the war, she can expect to feel the full pinch of the British blockade. British naval power is now escorting food stocks to Greece. There are other reasons to believe that the real stake Hitler is playing for in the Balkans is to maintain the status quo and avoid two-front war for Germany while he strikes at England. There have been hints from the outset of the Greek-Italian conflict that Berlin did not approve of Mussolini's attempt to invade Greece. Fear of a general Balkan flare-up to imperial vital German oil and food resources in Rumania and other Balkan countries has been obvious in Berlin. It is possible that German "protective" occupation of Rumania •was in fact a purely defensive move, not an attempt to organize a Nazi-Fascist drive to crack Bri- Matanovich, Margaret Dudley, Claudia Barnum, and Messrs. Lawrence Thomas, James Brock, Jack Harringtpn and Edward Foster. Five Assessed For Gambling Penalties for gambling were imposed upon five men in city court yesterday. Willie R. Smart, 21 years old, colored, was sentenced to 10 days in jail, in lieu of 510 fine, after he pleaded guilty to gambling with dice at 221 East Jefferson street. Bond of S25 each was forfeited on similar charges by Earl Wright, 31, and Harry W. Garrett, 65, both colored. Joe Ruiz, 23, forfeited S10 bond by failing to appear to answer a charge of gambling with dice at 231 East Washington street, while John Abraham, 43, gave up a similar Woman Slain, Brother Shot Cassie Wilkins. 21 years old, colored, about 9:45 p. m. last night was shot and killed in the kitchen of her parents' home at 1406 East Madison street, and the same bullet passed through her body and seriously wounded her brother, Gus Wilkins, 18. Less than five minutes later, detectives seized Andrew James, also colored, 69 - year - old next - door neighbor, standing with a rifle in the doorway of his shack in the rear of 1402 East Madison street. James, taken to the city jail, confessed shooting the girl. The girl was standing over a washbowl in the rear room of the home of her stepfather and mother, Mr. and Mrs. John Henry Cooper, when she was struck by a rifle bullet which passed through the side screen door. The bullet hit just above her heart, passed through her body and into the side of her brother, who was helping her wash blood from cuts which James admitted inflicting upon her with a pocket knife. She was killed instantly and the brother was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. James, a cotton-picker and odd- iobs worker, admitted accosting the girl about 10 minutes before the fatal shooting, as she was walking past 1446 East Madison street. He said he was waiting for her "because I knew she was going to meet another man." (He said he and Cassie had been going together IVi years.) When he asked her where she was going, she said, "to the store for morther." whereupon he replied, "You're a liar" and slashed at her with the knife, he told Darrell Parker, deputy county attorney, who questioned him at the police station. The girl fell and "I cut her about two or three times," the elderly colored man admitted. At this point, Mrs. Sermencie Sewell, who resides at 1446 East Madison street, hearing the girl's screams, ran out of the house, and James ran home, he said. The girl also ran to her home and when her father and brother saw her cut and bleeding on the face and one arm, they dashed out after James. . James said he immediately grabbed his loaded rifle from his one - room shack and threatened Cooper and the boy off his property. Cooper then ran to call the police at the near-by home of Alice Haywood, colored deputy sheriff, and young Wilkins ran back into his house to help his sister. Then, standing just about five feet from his door, and about 40 feet from where the girl was standing washing her cuts, James fired once. John Slaughter and Dick Alva- T New York Society Given Ribbing In Ballet Russe New iork cafe society took a perfectly delightful "ribbing" last night in the second number of the three-number presentation of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo at the Phoenix Union High School auditorium, and Phoenicians who more than comfortably filled the hall * nto it 111-1 " 'ate it up. 1 The ballet, called "The New Yorker"—by special permission of the copyright owners, no less—in three scenes of delightful caricature and broad satire paraded all the characters of well-known artists of the New Yorker magazine- Peter Ariio. Hokinson, Steig, Sog- low and others. The dowager, the "little King," his attendant, the gossip columnist, the debutante with her boy friends, "small fry" (Lobov Roudenko who was married in Phoenix yesterday), the drunkard, the policeman, doorman, peddler, all paraded before the audience to the lively score from George Gershwin, orchestrated by David Raksin. It was a hilarious, riotous ballet, beautifully costumed, and well executed. And it found much more favor with the audience who ap- predated the less formal ballet work, but nevertheless excellent dancing of the participants, than :he first number of the program, a ballet in the traditional style. In "Serenade," to the music of Tschaikowsky, the ballet was much ess at ease than in either of the )ther two numbers, and Alexandra danseuse, However, , Danilova, the premiere eft much to be desired.

Downs, Phoenix bearing company manager, was returned here from Tulsa yesterday by R. G. Gibson, deputy sheriff, and admitted to deputies his part in the crime. He admitted he accompanied Grattus Cloud, 26, previously arrested, in the holdup-abduction of Downs here January 22 and also said he had committed two burglaries in El Paso, Tex., and 'one in Tucson.

Pair's Condition Still Is Critical Melvin and Marvin Harrington, 19 and 17 years old, respectively, sons of J. C. Harrington of the Carl Miller Cotton Camp near Buckeye, remained in critical condition in St. Joseph's Hospital last night as the result of severe burns suffered in a collision-explosion near Liberty School Saturday night. Both were riding in a coupe which was ignited when hit from the rear by another car. Two others in the coupe, Doyle Collier, 17, and Jesse Tyler, 16, also of the cotton camp, died of burns Sunday. Funeral services were held for the pair in Buckeye yesterday. Cadet Group Picks Slate Of Officers Michael Dominguez was elected yesterday to hold the office of president in the Phoenix High School Non-Commissioned Officers Club, a unit composed of Reserve Officers Training Corps cadets. He will be assisted in his official duties by Fred Clausen, vice- president; Robert Wood, secretary; Clarence Smith, treasurer and publicity chairman, and Bill Shedd, sergeant-at-arms.

SAVE . , substituting for Mia Slavenska, who las a sprained ankle, in the last number, "Gaite Parisienne," Dan- lova somewhat redeemed herself as the "glove-seller" in that num- ' er. "Gaite Parisienne" will be long remembered in Phoenix for the "can-can" •girls, 12 of them in shockingly long black silk stockings, rainbow-hued ruffled skirts, who really executed a number rarely ever seen in this day and age outside a "movie" of the period in which the "can-can" girls were popular. Others of outstanding merit in the number included Tani Grant- zeva as the flower girl, Frederic Franklin as the Baron, Marc Platoff as the "officer," and top honors went to Leionide Massine who took the part of the "Peruvian." More than a little of the success of the ballet may be laid to the lerfect orchestral background. The wallet orchestra of 18 pieces for 30th "The New Yorker" and "Gaite Parisienne" was directed by Franz Aljers. Only the strings were used for the first number, which was directed by Efrem Kurtz. At the conclusion of the second number. Miss Rosella Hightower was presented with a large sheaf of red roses sent to her by her aunt, Mrs. Robert Craig of Phoenix. Another member of the ballet until ast Saturday, Robert Steele, is a nephew of Dr. W. A. Franklin of Globe. Saturday the young dancer joined the aviation service. The next attraction to be presented by Mrs. Archer E. Linde in regular series will be Kirsten Flagstad, March 10. Ruling Delayed On Tax Appeal The Arizona Supreme Court yesterday took under advisement the constitutionality of a statute providing for appeal of tax commission rulings in income tax disputes to superior courts. The validity of the law was attacked by E. P. Cline, assistant attorney general, in a petition for a writ of prohibition against Judge William G. Hall of Pima County Superior Court to prevent hearing of an appeal from an additional tax commission assessment of about $1,SOO against the Tucson Title Insurance Company. The court denied a motion for rehearing of its recent decision upholding the tax rate limit imposed on municipalities handed down in a suit brought against Gila county by the Southern Pacific Company. Perner Quits State Board Governor Osborn yesterday received the resignation of Ross Perner, Seligman, as a member and chairman of the Arizona Livestock Sanitary Board, effective immediately. The governor conferred with Mr. Perner then announced he would accept the resignation at Mr. Pcr- ner's insistence. In submitting the resignation Mr. Perner said that private duties were taking all of his time; that it would be impossible for him to remain in the state at all times in the future and that he felt he would be unable to properly discharge the duties of a member of the board. The governor said he received the the resignation of Marion Welborn, Phoenix, as a member of the board several weeks ago, but said he had not acted upon it. Sleep Disrupts Suicide Plans MONTREAL, Feb. 17 — (UP)—Tipped that a jealous ) husband .had sworn to commit suicide at 1 a. m., police rushed to his home today. They arrived after the dead line. Hurrying into the house, they found the man slumped in his chair, a revolver in his hand. But he wasn't dead. He had fallen asleep while waiting for the clock to strike the fatal hour. Phoenix Trade Shows Big Gain SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 17 (AP)—Department store trade gains in Phoenix last month were 21 per cent over the "normal" January figure based on January transactions in the 1923-25 period, statisticians of the Federal Reserve; Bank of San Francisco reported today. The report was based on a survey of 154 stores in the West coast and Rocky Mountain region. Trade in Pacific coast department stores last month was the best lor January in many years.
