Rome, May 31. — Premier Benito Mussolini ordered the mobilization of three new divisions for east Africa today, totaling 50,000 additional men. An authoritative source said the premier intends to have more than 1,000,000 men under arms this summer. He was reported as considering the European situation so disturbing that he has decided to mass his armies in preparation for any evantualities. He wants to show Europe that Italy can solve its own problems i without depending on concerted action with other powers. The mobilization was regarded as a protective measure for the rapid effectuation of Mussolini's speech to the chamber of deputies last Saturday, in which he said Italy was ready to accept "supreme responsibility" for the protection of her territory and the lives of her citizens. \ An official statement said: "Partial mobilization of Abyssinian forces, together with the arrival in Ethiopia of additional war material, compels the Italian government to adopt new defensive measures to guarantee- us from any attack on the security .of our .colonies in east Africa." It was officially announced that several Italian couriers carrying mail in the Abyssinian border region had been arrested and imprisoned by armed rebels on May 12. They were released after a protest by the Italian consul it Gondar, and the mail sacks were. returned. However, they had been rifled, the announcement said New reports that an unnamed informant had sighted Paul Redf ern.

Hiatt, Member of the High School Faculty to Speak Sunday, iP.y IJnili-il I'ressl. Karachi, India, May 31. — A devastating earthquake demolished the Quetta region on the northwest frontier today, burying thousands of natives and Europeans in the ruins of a once prosperous city and countryside. Unofficial estimates placed the casualties at probably 20,000. It will be a long and difficult task to determine the number accurately, however, since most of the victims lie under the debris. British and Indian troops toiled feverishly, extricating literally thousands of dead and injurod from the ruins of the vanished city of 17.000 inhabitants. The fertile aiid beautiful district, in the plains 5,500 -feetJQpjjjj «pQ above sea level and ringed by mountains, was a scene of utter desolation. Camps for the injured and destitute were established on tho race course and at the i British residency. The extensive, world-famous fruit gardens surrounding Quetta were reported destroyed. '•.

William Hornbeck who suffered ft broken back iff an accident while .Taxing the building* on the post- office site It reported Improving «t this Uno and he is ; being kept Ottawa, May 31.—Prime Minister Bennett announces that legislation would be introduced probably next week- to give tho government power to revalue gold if such a step were deemed advisable. '. Although the prime minister asserted that this would be merely permissive legislation, significance was attached to his statement in view of Anglo-American •tabiHzation possibilities and the present French franc crisis. The Canadian government has allowed it to be known that H no intention of i revaluing. tion between the American dollar and the pound remains undetermined. It fs equally, anxious, however, to achieve stabilization as soon as an Anglo-American agreement has.been reached. Stabilization of the two currencies on the old basis would mean a return of the Canadian dollar to its former parity with the American dollar, but If a lower value were fixed for the "pound, as Britain desires, the' Canadian currency might be stabilized between the two.
