It is one of a group of shooting star's appearing an- nually about the llth of August, probably related to Swift's com- et, 1862. When a meteor hits the earth's atmosphere it catches fire and that's the blaze you see. Most meteors, we read, burn be- fore they, touch carUi.

Fire engines arriving at the scene in the Algiers suburb of Maison Carree were blocked with machine-gun fire (or nearly an hour while flames shot toward the sky. Reports said at least 10 per- sons were killed or wounded in the attack, one of the most dar- ing and spectacular actions ot the European terrorist group since it launched its desperate fight against Algeria's independence. The French army moved six heavy tanks and a score of other armored vehicles into (he area. It was believed thai the pres ence of a newly arrived antiler- rorisl squad in the barracks was the main reason [or the attack. Three limes in the past two weeks the Maison Carree bar racks have been the object ot se- cret army attacks with mortar and bazooka. The vast camp, sur rounded by rolls of barbed wire also houses several thousand fam ilies ot the military police. Castro Shows Up At Baseball Park HAVANA
