The answer is—feuds. The Kentucky mountains, classic American home of family feuds are a peaceful Sunday school sort of place compared to little Albania Albanians carry on feuds for centuries At one time it was estimated Zog was family heir to about 250 feuds. The number has increased since then, because pro-Yugoslavs thinks he betrayed their cause and pro-Italians are not so sure of his allegiance to them Then the Moslems, who form the big majority of Albania* million people, are angry because he is going to marry a Christian girl.
