YO-YO BANNED

IN SYRIA

Blamed For Drought

By Moslems

BEIRUT (Syria), January 21.

Drought and severe cold is disast- rously affecting the cattle in Syria, and the Moslem chiefs at Damascus have attributed the wrath of the   heavens to the recent introduction of the yo-yo.  

They say that while the people are praying for rain to come down from above the yo-yo goes down, and before reaching the ground springs up through the subtle pull of the string.    

The chiefs interviewed the Prime Minister, and exposed the evil influ- ence of yo-yos, so they were immedi- ately banned.    

To-day the police paraded the streets and confiscated the yo-yos   from everyone they saw playing with

them.
