Africa Scene of Blasted Romance And American Girl's'Gift Recalls Memory of Italian Duke known names is featured, including Margaret Sullivan, Randolph Scott, Walter Connolly, Elizabeth Patterson, Janel Beccher and Harry Ellerbo. "So Red the Rose" tells the story af a Southern family which faced liardships and struggles In those days when a peaceful country was seared by the flame of War. It also tolls the story of n young girl's love that is tried and tested when the man, to whom she is pledged refuses to heed the call of patriotism, even though he sees the plight and desperation of his own people. Margaret Sulla van plays the girl. Vallctte, a product of the proud South. Randolph • Scott plays her sweetheart who refuses to bear arms when the call to War resounds throughout the country.' MOGADISCIO. Italian Somuliland— (/P)—Mussolini's colonizers here have the blighted romance of a royal prinfce for on American girl to thank fof much of the equipment of a model plantation community. The romance was between the late Duke of the Abruzzi, cousin of King Victor Emmanuel, and the former Miss Kalhcrlne Elkins. daughter of the late Senator Stephen B. Elkins of West-Virginia. It roused attention in two continents in 1907 and for years afterward ns the young duke stubbornly sought the consent of the Italian royal family for the match. In 1913 Miss Elkins married William F. R. Hill, son of a representative from Illinois. The duke thereupon plunged into explorations which won him world renown. Later his thoughts turned continually to Italian Somaliland where he had founded the now tlu-iving Village of the Duca degli Abruzzi. Mrs. Hitt took a deep interest in the colonization work for her former suitor and made the village numerous practical gifts. This custom she has continued since the duke's death March 18, 1933. Her latest contribution was an X-ray machine for the village hospital.

Liifcghs Notice in Wales Clannish Welsh Counti'y- foik Great on Minding , Own Business CARDIFF, Wales.-[/p)-£ol. Charles Augustus Lindbergh Is moving about Wales without attracting the slightest attention. His first visit to Cardiff wns on a Saturday afternoon, but he nnssfed With his wife and Jon through the pushing crowds'in the city's largest •store Without being recognized. . , Lindbergh knows this countryside well. In 1933 he stayed with Aubrey Neil Morgan, his Wife's brother-InMaw and a son of his present host, at. St. Brides-super-Ely, a straggling village Within sight of the Cnerphilly Mountains about nine miles from Cardiff. Country Folk Clannish Probably his strongest aid in avoiding the limelight is supplied by the local population. Welshmen, in the country districts particularly, are simple and conservative folk who mind their own business. They resent the intrusion of inquisitive Strangers -and co-operate with distinguished visitors in every way they can. Although many were discussing the expected arrival of the Lindberghs in Cardiff during the week-end before he come, he had been here 36 hours before the fact became generally known. Then the, newspapers published in n few lines a bare announcement that he Was staying at Llandaff. Letter Writers Busy No sightseers gather round the Morgan home nt Llanddaff, few even glance at the house through its screen of poplar trees, but a blue-uniformed constable with silver-spiked helmet leisurely cycles back and forth along the narrow lane to keep any intruder away. Although Wales is determined to respect the Lindbergh desire for privacy and peace, England's letter writers are making the Llandaff postman's burden heavy. Offers of hospitality, appeals from charities, wild effusions from cranks, make up the bulk of the daily mnilbag.

BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Editor FLAGSTAFF, Ariz.-(/P)—Mars has, a snow field 3,500 miles across, which melts each Martian summer to a small point about 200 miles in diameter. Around this snow field and above it | ai-c evidences affirming the possibility of life on Mars. Not merely life in any form, but life of the sort known on earth, and intelligence of the same kind as man's. Tliis evidence favoring life on Mars has been gathering here at the Lowell observatory for 30 years. Continuous observation and hundreds of thousands of photographs of Mars taken in the repetition of his seasons seen year after year have piled up the evidence. 'Canals' Seen Improvement in photographic paltes has strengthened the idco of persons living on Mars. The canals which keen-eyed astronomers saw but which did not appear on photographs ore beginning to take just n little shape on the new plates. Dr. E. C. Slipher, the astronomer who has spent 30 years .studying Mars, and whose opinions rank high in the astronomical world, says: "When we look at the planet we see that his poles are snowy white in winter, that this manllo disappears during his summer and great areas of his surface then turn dark blue-green, which probably represents growth of vegetation. "At times we also see large regions veiled by bluish-white canopies, which appear to be clouds floating in his atmosphere. Dust storms similar to those which have menaced crops on parts of earth are indicated by yellowish.white clouds revealed in some color photo- I uraphs. Along the twilight margins of | his disc, borderline between night and dav, we see a conspicuous lime-light effect, produced by the gaseous ;it- mosphere. 1 ' Water Vapor Present Of the snow caps, the larger one appears around Mars' south pole. In winter it is 3,500 miles across. This snow area is nearly 50 per cent larger there than around the planet's north pole. "Continued observations," Dr. Slipher says, "disclosed the important but not surprising fact that move water vapor is present above the melting polar caps of the sumer hemisphere than exists at the same time in the air above the equatorial regions of the planet." The water vapor is at times comparable to that which exists on earth at points of high altitude and low humidity. Around the southern hemisphere snow field the blue-green areas which seem to be vegetation are more marked than in the northern hemisphere. 'Cunuls' a Question From these snow fields, both north and south, run the geometric lines so long disputed, the "canals." Now with accumulated photographic evidence the existence of the canals is confirmed, Dr. Slipher says. 'These are hard facts," he states, "gained from several decades of nearly constant study and measurement of the planet. "The only exception is interpretation of the 9anals. Whether observe- Congress' Oratory Pointed at Polls Public Printer and Franked Mails Will Be Kept Very Busy By HERBERT PLUMMER Associated Press Correspondent WASHINGTON.—The first days of the present session of congress indicate that the floors of both houses will be utilized at every opportunity as sounding boards for the coming national campaign. From the opening day this has been so. President Roosevelt set the pace when he broke all precedents by delivering his message on the state of the union at a night session when the nation could listen in. It has been maintained since. Already congressional leaders, especially in the house, have experienced difficulty in holding the members in check. Supporters of the Townsend old age pension plan have been particularly insistent they be given opportunity to air their views. As the session progresses, the pressure for 'letting off steam." as Vice President Garner described it when he was speaker of the house, will increase. Unless the leaders clamp down, the situation may become serious. "Canned Speeches" The entire membership of the house and one-third of the senate are up for re-election this year. No better place is to be had than the house or senate for these senators and representatives to make their speeches. In addition to the fact that their speeches may be noted the same day in their home-town papers, there is another factor probably of greater importance to them. They have the privilege of broadcasting their remarks to constituents in the moils, free of charge, on whatever scale they desire. The member of congress pays for the speeches he has printed, but they are printed in the government printing office at Washington at cost price. His franking privilege permits him free use of the mails. Some idea of the large scale operation in "canned" speeches in a national election year may be had in the fact that in one such period senators and representatives paid $68,266.19 to the public printer. A member often will send out another member's speech on some subject he thinks will be of interest to his constituents. Not so long ago, records show that a member of the house from Pennsylvania used 30,000 copies of a Colorado representative's speeches on the business side of the national government. Senators Not Limited During the present session, principally because of their desire to get through and go home as quickly as possible, leaders on both sides have privately agreed to throttle speechmaking as much as they can. They intend wherever possible to prevent speeches being made in the open house and have them confined to the time when the house is in "committee of the whole." Time is limited for debate in committee of the whole and equally divided between Democrats and Republicans. Thus the leaders are able to allot time just as they choose. The situation is diferent in the senate. There a member can talk on any subject as long as he pleases. It requires invocation of the rule of cloture—agreed to by two-thirds of the senators—to take a member off his feet. It's rarely been done. .In his i-arlfor «la.vs. KUwiinl was a keen polo player. Horn lie is in an action picture taken during ft match. and that he tends to become nervous in competition and putt badly. Swims and Skis and Even Knits a Bit A good swimmer, he has also tried his hand at skiing and winter sports. He took a personal hand at remaking the gardens at Fort Belvedere when he made that his residence. Another venture was revealed at a bazaar for the Personal Service League when the prince, passing some scarfs on sale, remarked, "That's the one I knitted." For years the prince has been a flying enthusiast, and keeps several personal planes at Smith's Lawn, the airdrome .at Virginia Water. Though not himself a pilot, he has often taken the stick while in the air in dual-control planes, and has logged more flying time than any other ruling monarch. As a hunter, the prince was never especially interested in grou&e-shoot- ing of his native moors. He has gone in for more exciting game. Africa has seen him out after lions, elephants, and hippopotami, and in India he shot tigers and tried his hand at the native sport, usually regarded as quite dangerous, of "pig-sticking." That's worse than it Sounds, as the "pigs" are the trusked wild boar, hunted on horseback.

There is a club rule that anyone lodging a ball in a hippopotamus track may lift out before" making the next shot. The prince got a great kfck out of lodging a ball in one of these animal- made bunkers and duly lifting it out Wijthout penalty. . ' His sporting life reflected Itself in the prince's dress, and' through that affected the dress of men all over the world. Reflecting his 'strong individuality, the prince was bound to. convention in dress no more than, he was in other things. He popularized the- "bowler," or derby hat, until it has • become the standard mark of the Englishman all over the world.

The bright but never gaudy checks of his golf plus-fours, and the fondness for the bright-colored pullover sweaters were characteristic of the prince's attitude toward clothes. Comfort, informality, and utility were the keynotes of every, fashion he set, and it is not too much to say that he made the sartorial lot of men all over the world somewhat easier. The prince enjoyed his highball, but sat an example' even in the hard- drinking post-war days of sgbriety, always stopping well short of excess.
