MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 22 • 1936 CHURCH SENDS MANY MONKS TO ETHIOPIA WORK Vatican Plans Complete for Catholicizing New Empire. VATICAN CITY, (UP)—Mgr. Giovanni Emilio CasteUmi, Archbishop of Rhodes and papal inspector in Italian East Africa, has concluded his first visit to the Italian empire and plans are now underway to Catholicize Ethiopia. His extensive survey of the Catholic situation in Ethiopia has been presented to the Holy Congregation of Propaganda Fide and a large number of missionaries are ready to sail for Africa. It is recalled that at the outbreak of the Italo-Ethiopian conflict the Vatican ordered missionaries to abandon their posts and leave Ethiopia. Now, their ranks considerably increased and under the protection of the Italian tricolor, they are returning to Ethiopia. Appointed to Missions. In August Pope- Pius appointed Mgr. Gaudenzio Barlassina superior general of the "Consolata" missions in Addis Ababa. Mgr. Barlassina had been appointed up- ostolic prefect of the Kaffa region in 1913 and he faced tropical diseases and savage tribesmen, and continued to preach in Ethiopia. The pontiff now has intrusted the apostolic vicariates of Eritrea and Galla to Capuchin monks. The vicariate of Eritrea soon will receive a large group of Pled- montese Capuchins headed by Mgr. Luigi Marinoni, former pro- vincialer of Milan and newly appointed vicar for that Italian'Afri- can colony. The Eritrean vicariate already possesses nine missionary homes in Asmara, Massawa, Adi- j caje, Adi Ugri, Cheren, Chinda. Mehelab. Saganeiti and Barentu. These homes will be cared for by 35 Capuchin monks and 64 native priests. THREE $2,000 a Day Mrs, Hugh A. Dillman, widow of the late Horace E. Dodge and one of the wealthiest women in the world, receives an income of at least ?'i,000 a day from the Dodse fortune of over S58,- 000,000. This is disclosed by the ninth annual accounting in Detroit of the estate. Total daily income S6.100, but there is a deduction for taxes amounting to about $4,000 a day, barring exemptions. Named Pro-Vicar. Up to the outbreak of the Icr.lo- Ethiopian conflict the vicariate of Galla was intrusted to Capuchin monks from Tolose, Spain, and from the Island of Malta. Father Modesto de Valgrana has been appointed pro-vicar of Addi.? Ababa. The capital's viebriate comprises some of the most fertile and rich regions of the entire empire, namely the Jimrna and toe region of the Great Lakes as far east as Dolo, old Ethiopian frontier with Italian Somaliland. 11 continues south along the right bank of the Auasch river down to the Blue Nile and has numerous missionary homes at Addis Ababa Harra, Dire Dawa, Dagain-a Gambo, Dobba and many others. Twenty-eight newly ordained Capuchins have been assigned to Ethiopia. They have been blessed by the pope. Girl fn Want Finds Justice and Mercy in Her New Position Iron Mine Industry Optimistic for 1937 CROSBY, Minn., (UP) — The iron mining industry faces the prospect of a bumper year in 1937, according to F. A. Kelly, superintendent of the Pickands-Mather company, operating extensive interests on the Cuyuna and Mesabi range?. Kelly detailed the outlook as "definitely optimistic" in view of the upward curve in production the last several years. "The one factor, however, causing an uneasy feeling among mining interests," he said, "is taxes. Thirty-one per cent of the operating revenue of mines goes for taxes. "But the upward trend of production has been general over the Lake Superior district, which embraces both Mesabi and Cuj-una ranges. Production this year wil approximately 45,000,000 tops as against 55,000,000 a year for the 10 year average up to 1930." OKLAHOMA CITY, (UP)— Gruff police officers and county attorneys sometimes overlook the letter of the law. An 18 year old Texas farm girl came to Oklahoma City looking for a job. She had no experience, no education, and the small amount of money she had soon ivas gone. She fell in disrepute and before long faced a possible prison sentence as an accomplice to a long string of hijackings, although she took no actual part in the crimes. A police lieutenant, who had sent thousands of young men anc women to prison, went "soft." He took the girl to the county attorney. An assistant in the office and a deputy sheriff listened while the girl explained how her father had driven her from his house when she refused to live with her young husband any longer. The head of one of Oklahoma City's leading department stores was in the county attorney's office when the girl related her story. He was there to protest regarding for no sympathy he, too, was im- thef;. Ke felt criminals. But pressed. The three contributed enough cash to keep the girl comfortable until she could draw her first pay check—a check that was to come from the business leader who went to the county attorney's office for an angry protest against crime conditions. Ten Padlocks Stolen to Disgust of Owner LYNN, Mass., (UP) Elmer F. Foss has come to the end of his patience. Every day for 10 days someone has stolen the lock from his garage door. After the first theft, he bought a stronger lock. The next day it was gone. After each loss, he has bought a lock stronger than the one preceding it—but to no avail. Each morning the lock would be gone—but nothing else. He has stayed awake nights trying to catch the pilferer. But sleepless nights are taking their toll. Foss is disgusted and weary. And he doesn't fancy sleeping in the garage. Douglas Opening Up Office of Biermann DECORAH—Ray Douglas, secretary of Congressman Fred Bierman, left for Washington to open the office preparatory to the opening of congress Jan. 4. Congressman and Mrs. Biermann will leave later in the month. Games and Machines All Will Be Checked OSKAIXpOSA, W—City and county officials agreed to appoint two investigators to check all games, machines, public drawings and merchandising plans involving prizes to determine if they are gambling schemes. The investigators will work throughout the county. Guests From Colorado. RUDD—Mrs. Ray Logan of Denver, Colo., Mr. and Mrs. John Kncisel. and Mr. and Mrs. Willis Buc.'dsr were entertained Saturday at n 6:30 o'clock dinner by Gus Hemphke at at his home. RESEED TREES AFTER FIRES Reforestation Started to Heal Scars Left On Hills by Flames. PORTLAND, Ore,, (UP)—Reforestation of approximately seven square miles of fire-swept timber land in Oregon and Washington will have started 3,038,000 two year old Douglas firs in, 1936, the U. S. forest service regional office here estimates. Delayed by drought conditions which kept CCC and ERA crews until the fire'lines until long after the close of the regular forest fire season, the last block of 1,480,000 trees will be planted this month. The project is the second largest in the history of the national forests of the two states, surpassed only by the 1934 planting, which included 257,000 trees more than the 1936 quota. Cost S10 an Acre. Cost of the reforestation in logged off areas where fires hav,e destroyed the natural seeding runs between $7 and $10 an acre, forest officials calculated. But ihey put the value of the timber in 80 years at $120 an acre in addition to the benefits to erosion, wild life conservation, watershed srotection, scenic resources and the return of land to productivity. Supplied by trees from the forest nursery at Wind River, Wash., '.he crews have planted 78C acres n Olympic, 300 acres in the Snoqualmie, and 200 acres in Mount lanier national forest in Wash- ngton. In Oregon, 320 acres have been planted in the Willametter national forest and 200,000 trees have been set in the Suislaw. Replanting Not Complete. Half of Oregon's land has been estimated by experts to be good only for growing forests, but the forest service has determined that it is uneconomic to attempt planting all burned areas, which average about 200,000 acres annually. The aim is to restore natural reproduction by strip planting as the most common method. This method involves planting of trees in strips- throughout the burned regions, the theory being that seeds from the planted trees will reforest the entire area. Figures show that 8,000 acres in Washington and Oregon have been planted since CCC camps were established. Held Under $1,000 Bond on Theft Count IOWA CITY, (£>)—Ray Miller, Iowa City hospital employe, waived to the grand jury and was being held under $1,000 bond Monday on a charge of grand larceny.
