His Black Shirts”.
Dr. Tom Skeykill talked to the Open
Forum Thursday night, March 18, at
the County Courthouse. His subject was
“IMussolini and His Black Shirts.” He

Doctor Skeykill is a native of Austra
lia, but at present is making a lecture
tour of the United States. He was a
member of the Black Shirts and spent
several months in Itah'. Dr. Skeykill
loves America although he is not an
American citizen. He was blind for
more than three years and his sight was
restored by a physician in Washington,
Dr. Skeykill said that Benito Musso
lini before the war was a great editor
for the socialist party. Later he was
expelled from this party. When the war
came on he enlisted as a private and
eight months later was disabled.
.\s he was expelled from the socialist
party and was unable to join in any
other party, he started a newspaper of
his own and organized the Fascist! party.
Italy at this time was in strife and
turmoil. No party could get a majority
of votes and Italy was on the brink of
disaster. At this time Mussolini ap
peared. He had organized all the young
men in Italy into an army that wore
black shirts, black pants, black puttees,
and marched into Rome. The king turn
ed the reins of the government over to
Mussolini and he selected his cabinet in
one half a minute.
Mussolini’s government is so well built
that although he may be killed tomor
row it would still work smoothly on, ac
cording to Dr. Skeykill.
