King Vittorio Emanuele has notified Premier Mussolini about the grave condition of Princesses Mafalda and Giovanna. The Crown Prince has been called back to Racconigi. Mussolini later received a telephone call from the king who informed him that the concern for Mafalda's health had abated. There was no official confirmation about a rumor that Mafalda had died, however.
