Undated, Feb. 5, —All

strations and official denun

and South America.
Five nations in southeast
ern Europe—Hungary, Bui

of a new Red menace, with
attempts to rouse the pub

Soviet Russian influence.

In Bulgaria, 50 persons
were arrested in a series of
raids, and nineteen gypsies
were put on trial for com

Rumanan, Yugoslavian,
and Austrian police made
many raids. Some of the
Austrian press indicated
the belief that Russia was
seeking to replace Italy as
the dominant power in the
southeastern area, taking
advantage of Italy’s opera
tions in East Africa.

Crooks Desert
Ocean Vessels
For 3 Reasons
(By The Associated Press)
Havre, France, Feb. 5,—
Steamship police report in
ternational crooks, hit hard
by depression, are disap
pearing from the high seas.
These suave gentlemen,
who at one time profitably
plied the ocean trade be
tween New York and Hav
re, now cannot even pay
their passage with their
meagre gains, according to
Louis Henry, head of the
police on the Normandie.
Henry gives three reas
ons for the diminishing
number of card sharps, con
fidence men and ordinary
petty thieves traveling on
ocean liners.
First is poker’s waning
popularity and bridge’s
“Bridge players, usual
ly aware of their limitations
hesitate before playing with
st'rangers for high stakes”
he said.
Second bitter memories
of the Wall street crash of
1929 sharpened skipticism
among American travelers
and even the most logical
arguments of persuasive
confidence men fall on deaf
ears these days.
Third, reduction of the
number of days crossing the
Atlantic makes for a virtual
impasse for international
crooks to lay a solid ground
work for “friends.”
Stewarts, valets and wait
ers are trained to observe
movements of passengers.
In this way Henry said,,
