“The Cat Screamed at Midnight”
It is October 31, 1936 . . .
It has been nearly four months since the Italian Duce, Benito Mussolini, ordered his fascist troops into Abyssinia. Two weeks later, civil war broke out in Spain and Generalissimo Franco called upon Adolph Hitler and his Nazi Legions to aid the rebel troops. Even today, the Luftwaffe is practicing a new type of warfare called blitzkrieg. In England, King Edward VIII’s coronation is being planned for early next year. His affair with American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson is well hidden from the general public as the British press has agreed to publish nothing about the relationship to avoid a scandal among the king’s loyal subjects. And, at the English country estate, Conifers, Sir Hugo Smythe Arbruster, publisher of The Daily Truth, celebrated his 70th birthday last night. The assembled guests celebrated the event in a most fitting way, with enough food and drink to choke the proverbial horse. But, it seems, the horse may have fought back. For, this morning, Sir Hugo was found dead in the stables near the main house. The old gentleman had been a cat fancier, priding himself in the rare breeds that freely roam the grounds of Conifers. It was said that he preferred cats to humans, pampering the felines with all sorts of catty trinkets. He had even threatened to leave his millions to the Royal Feline Society. And, what surprises will be in store when the will is read?
