who hud been living In Germany for
several years, brought to light un in
teresting situation which, so fnr us
there Is any record, has never before

Mrs. Bunch, whose huxhand was thu
famous brewer, Adolphus Busch, and
who 1m herxelf the "Anheuscr" of tho
widely known "Anheuxer-BiiHch," Is
really tho richest widow In tho world,
with moro thnn $00,000,000 In money
and properties, yet her return to the
United States lias revealed her us lit
erally a "woman without a country."
Technically, Mrs. Busch Is n citi
zen of thu United States. But part of
her vast estate, though, Is In Germany.
She owns castles, villas, stocks und
bonds and even pnrt of n great ammu
nition plant In Prussia. So, when tho

many tho Prusslnn government promptly declared Mrs. Hunch, who was liv

presented her by her husband us u golden woddjng gift, to bo nn alien enemy
