There is in Britain considerable expert knowledge of what the Roman legions are up against in Ethiopia, even if the fighting Is over. Such cxperls in colonization feel that "Italy lias won the giune. The hard part is to collect tile prize." : ,v. One distinguished British general put it to ine this way: "After all, \ve (the British) were in Ethiopia in 18C8. Napier's column, which had none of the motorized, ibornbing-plane, iwtson-gas equipment of a modern army, ami' hence less advantage over the natives, defeated the Emperor Theodore and took Magdala, then the capital. ! "The country was at our mercy then, as it is at Badoglio's today. If we had thoug'nt it worth kpeo- ins! in 18C8, we would have kept 11." UNPLEASANT FACTS TO FACE Military control by Italy in Ethiopia Is a fact. But from it follow other facts, less pleasant: ^Italy now : has about 500,000 soldiers. IriS Ethiopia. This Is an . expensive .force to • maintain : 3000 miles from home. The rainy season comes soon. Then, with equipment gradually deteriorating, the problem of maintaining adequate supplies for this spread-out army will be difficult. And expensive. It is unlikely that any appre- of troops will be Italy for months.. ciable number sent back to pei'haps yeais. Possibly some of the soldiers who embarked so gaily for Ethiopian conquest, with thoughts of a triumphant return to Rome, may not like to sit down there indefinitely, even when told the news that their peasant families arc being .brought along to join them. : Organized government, such as it was, having been driven out by the Italian soldiery, it is up to Italy lo establish a new government and maintain law and order. itKVOLTS ARE CERTAIN That is a big job, since Ethiopia is almost ns large as .Texas and Arizona combined, partly desert, partly tropical valleys, partly mile-high plateaus. Small guerrilla outbreaks practically certain. The 10 million people, Christians, Moslems, pagans, savages, will lie hard to rule. Many of them still hold memories of relatives seared by poison gas, cut down by flying They want re- King-Emperor King Victor Enuianuel DJ Victor Emi'immtcl IlX King or Italy and Emperor of Ethopia, modern heir by the grace of Mussolini to' the imperial purple mantle of Trajan.

If Mussolini succeeds in taking to Ethiopia 200.000 families— nearly a million Italian colonists —Ihey will need troops for protection. The army expense goes on. Even if trouble from native raids is less than J.he Americans met in the Philippines, or in the "wild west," for that matter, there remain the wild beasts, the flies the native disease-carriers, anc the climale, insufferable in many sections. Suppose Hint Ihe Italian Com.- inlssarlat of Inlernal Immigration is able to get 1,000,000 Italians lo go lo Ethiopia. Outfitting anc transporting Ihcm is' a tremen daus lask, tremendously expensive, lo begin with. Once in their new homes, there will be continual expense for military protection, for improving sanitary nnd housing conditions, for schools, for purifying waler Mipplies, for hospital and medical aid. EXPENSES WILT, PILE UP Meanwhile, the tirmy expense goes on. If the 500,000 soldiers were taken home immediately, there would be the problem fnced by every World War country, of gelling them back into civil employment. It was largely Italy's failure to solve Ihis problem afler the World War that led to Mussolini's rkt. Now lie has created the same problem for hltnself again—on smaller scale, but the same old problem. That Is anolher reason why few of these soldiers may (Continued on Page Big til) compensate him for losses suffered when AAA invalidation reduced the ' value of rice he had purchased. The decision, regarded as highly significant, .was. returned by Municipal Judge M. S. Elms in a simple collection suit filed by Standard Rice Mills against the Standard Grocery Co. The grocery company had withheld in payment for rice bran the amount It claimed it lost on rice that had been purchased previously from Ihe mill nnd was held on hand when the AAA was invalidated. Tlie case was immediately np- pcaled to circuit corrt. Attorneys for tiic grocery company said that if the decision is upheld by n higher court it will open the door for recovery suits throughout the country. In the local case the grocery company contended that the AAA decision relieved the rice mill of the processing tax which it had passed on lo Ihe grocery concern in the form of a higher price for the rice.
