PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 3 - A SHOT IN THE WINDOW

"But it's Prime Minister Gero," Judy exclaimed. "He just returned from Yugoslavia. We must listen to this. Now he'll have to make some concessions."
" Concessions," I muttered, "do you really believe that? For God's sake shut off that set. Don't ruin our lovely evening by forcing us to listen to that gangster Gero. He's one of the worst."
Our host turned the set low so that we could go on with our conversation. He continued to listen to the speech. Suddenly, he turned the volume up high. Gero was angrily belittling the university students, calling them to task for their demonstrations. I clenched my fists. My face must have turned pale, for our hostess suddenly rose and, without comment, turned the radio off.
" Here are your concessions, Judy," I murmured in anger. "These are the gangsters who are leading you. You see now why we cannot live like Hungarians."
The room became hushed and the atmosphere tense. We all felt depressed. The endeavors of the hostess to cheer us were fruitless. We went to the living room and had some liqueurs, trying to talk about bygone days.
It must have been about midnight when we started home, taking the streetcar. When we neared the city, people seemed to have been walking for a long time. A contagious excitement was in the air, and we could hear shots. We saw people running along the street. At one stop passengers boarding the streetcar told us about some street fights. The driver was muttering; debating whether or not he should continue. Finally he decided to go ahead, and we reached the ruins of the Elizabeth Bridge, one of the few remaining scars of World War II. By now the sound of shots seemed to be very close. We saw people running from all directions, some of them shouting.
We alighted from the streetcar and started walking with the crowd towards the heart of the city. More and more people
