Venturing out onto the street in your Fiat is like entering the Grand Prix. Some motorists - more properly called competitors — resolve their differences with Weapons as well as fenders. In Telese, two guys entitled Eduardo Falato and Eduardo lacobelli shot each other in a gunfight over who had the right of way. A fender bender near Rome resulted in a three- cornered rowdy-dow, with three truck drivers lunging at each other with screwdrivers.

Henry Bartell, a 70-year-old retired welder, signed on with the city father* of the Detroit suburb to subdue and remove uninvited bees from city property and private homes.

Hurrizzissteizzi is now dead, but the VA has another name that threatens to short-circuit the computerized card file. It's Kauionaleinani- okauakukalahale, the last name of a veteran in Honolulu. IRATE PARENTS are not the only hazard to be encountered in coaching Little League fcaseball. In Portola, Calif., Coach Conrad Lahr leaned agains a metal backstop and suffered a nasty shock when it was hit by a bolt of lightning. Lahr said he was paralyzed temporarily but was aware, in a light-dazzled sort of way, of what was going on around him. He was taken to a hospital, treated, pronounced okay and released.
