Cost Two And One-Fouith Billion No Relinn In Siglit BY STE WA RT nil OWN United Press'Staff' Correspondent ROME, .July.14 (UP) — Fascists ruefully, admit that Italy's new empire in East Africa had assumed the shape of an expensive "while elephant", which already had cost the government more than $2,250,- 000,00ft Some day the government hopes to get some of this money back, but so far It's been a one-way proposition, nefore Ethiopia can be made to pay Its ov n w.iy the government must spend even more and wait much longer, The exploitation of Ilallle Se- laKsie'b foimer ewplie Is piovlng, Fascists admit, even n bigger joh than ils conquest. In the first place it hns not proved to be (he paradise which Italians were led to be-1 lleve; as a consequence many would-be settlers have become discouraged. In the second place what natural" resources it does possess can not be profitably exploited until roads ore built, houses for settlers creeled, equipment supplied 1 and financial backing .made available— all expensive un dertaklngs. Cost Equals Four Budgets Before the Chamber of Fasces and Corporations, Duke Thaon dl Revel, minister of finances, recently,admitted that in five years Ethiopia already had cost Italy $2,250,000,000, including the expense's of the military campaign. This represents Ihe equivalent of four annual budgets for the entire Italian government. Geu.- Attlllo Teruzzi, undersecretary for colonies, told the same body that government coin- missions had had only "partial success" in minerals in Ethiopia, He gave no other details, but II Is known that Italian engineers have not been able to find any oil, exceptional quantities of gold or other minerals in Abyssinia. At the same time General Te- ruzzi admitted there'were slill hostile bands of "brigands" In Ihe provinces of Amlmra and Scioa who sllll opposed Italian rule. He "Heged^ they were supplied arms" by foreign govem- Having been disillusioned in the "gel - rich-quick" possibilities of Ethiopia,-Ihe Italians are now concentrating on a much slower but much more permanent'policy'. Prom Ethiopia they now expect to obtain: colton, coffee, lumber, wheat, livestock and hides/ all of which can be used profitably in Italy. Few Hundrcil Migrafe • Eventually the government hopes lo settle more than 1.000,000 Italians In Ethloplo, but so fiir not more than 200 families have emigrated because it is not ready to receive settlers. The government estimates thcic are at least 140,000 square miles of fertile land' In Ethiopia which can be cultivated! To open up the country the first job was to build roads, virtually noii-exlctent under the Negus A~t a cost of about $168.000,000 the government Is constructing 2000 miles of highways of which approximately 80 per cent already are completed. Bus and air lines are being established throughout Ihe empire and the port of Assab Is being enlarged. ' So far the colonies represent a negative factor in Italy's foreign trade. Instead of contributing to Italy's exports, the empire so far has operated with a highly unfavorable trade balance. Last year the empire imported almost 10 times more than it exported. Much of this represented machinery and supplies which will be used lo exploit the new Urrilory, Six thousand firms already have established branches In Ethiopia Approximately $450,000,000 already has been imested in private enterprises One of the big drawbacks, according to Italians, to the profitable exploitation of Ethiopia is the excesshe rates demanded by the ' Suez Canal Company for the passage of Italian ships through the canal.-The 5 hope to oblige Franqe to lo«er the rates and make them pajable In lire Instead of gold.

HUGHES GIN CO Bl i BY MIl/TON IJKONNER NfvA Senice Staff Corresjionileni LONDON, June 12.—The attack on Christianity In Germany is not only physical, In the form of persecutions, but philosophical. There is a concerted effort to undermine Christian belief and supplant it with a new paganism. This philosophical attack is led by Alfred Rosenberg, prominent Nazi editor, and a mentor of Adolf Hitler, whose views on religious questions he Is believed to have greatly Influenced. 'Ilie attaek takes two lines: (1) nejcctlon of the so-called "Semitic" elements in the Bible, Including- all of the Old and much of the New Testaments. (2) The cllort to create a new "Germanic Christianity," which old Christians insist Is Merely nco-paganism. SCIKNCG AND 11KI,!G10N These Nazi philosophers "prove scientifically" that Jesus was not of Jewish, but of Aryan blood. In im outline for a German-Nordic religion, Felix Fischcr-Dodclcbcnsays: "I am certain that if Jesus could sec what the Four Evangelists am! I the Apostle Paul have made of him, lie would cry out' with dismay, 'What have you foolish men made—n God of me."' In latei pages this author suys that the early Saxon bcoks represented Je.sus ns n stern "Hitler-nature." That Is a typical approach. Typical also is that of Prof. Ernst Bergmann of Ihe University of Leipzig. He proclaims the era of work! religions at an end, and lys: "A people which has returned lo its blood and soil, can no longer tolerate a religion in its character which makes the scriptures of the Jews the basis of ils gospel. We must base ourselves en the Holy Scriptures which are clearly written In German hearts. Our cry is, Aivay from Rome and Jerusalem! Back to our native German Faith n present-day form . . ." Thus the churches of Germany icdged between a physical perse-' iiilicn of which the imprisonment of Rev. Martin Niemoeller is a symbol, and a deluge of propaganda for a new German religion, are racing difficult times.
