Thomas Henfrey. a tall, dark-moustached Irishman from Munster whose troops call him "Somali Joe," leads one of the strangest units harrying Italian armies still fighting in southern Ethiopia. Somali Joe, whose uniform includes the sky blue cloak of an Ethiopian officer with the lion of Judah head on gold clasps, lived for 20 years in Tanganyika after having fought in the Khyber Pass and in Saudi Arabia in the last war. Today he leads about 1.500 Ethiopian irregulars, most of them mounted on mules. His scouts nip in and out of the Italian lines and say they operate so swiftly the fascists seldom know of their presence until it is too late. I found Henfrey and his men encamped in the primitive Galla country at the end of one of the worst roads in all Ethiopia. With him was his aide, a white officer from Kent who formerly worked in an export office in London and wonders now "What I'll do when I have to catch that 8:15 again." They were drinking tea from a mug beneath the thorn trees. "This kind of fighting is easy meat," said Somali Joe. "I started out with a few volunteers and the others just seemed to gather around. At the end of three weeks I had over a thousand." verna Shea, Melba Odeole. Elaine Kau-kahi. Ruby Zablan, Mani Puhe and Margaret Castello. Walter Iala is instructor.

Bennion, business man, educator and Latter Day Saints church official, here with Mrs. Bennion for a Sunday school convention. A member of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, Mr. Bennion is assistant to the president of the Utah Power & Light Co. at Salt Lake City. He is a member of the General Sunday school board of the church and attended a Sunday school convention Sunday. "For more than a year, the heads of the LDS church have been urging members to accumulate reserves of food," Dr. Bennion said. It is their conviction that before the present struggle is over, not only isolated communities like Hawaii, but people throughout the mainland may confront a serious scarcity of foodstuffs unless precautions are taken. "The predominant sentiment throughout Utah and surrounding states is for unrestricted aid to Great Britain." Dr. and Mrs. Bennion t!an a 16 days stay in Hawaii. They are guests of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Wool-ley. Mrs. Bennion is a daughter of the late Brig. Gen. Richard W. Young and a great-granddaughter of Brigham Young. London Now City of Odd Uniforms By EDDY GILMORE LONDON, May 26. (JP) Prime Minister Churchill's charge that German soldiers disguised in New Zealand uniform participated in the air borne invasion of Crete inspired a high ranking neutral here to pose this question today: What would happen in Britain if invasion were only a problem of uniform? Always ceremonially pictorial in the matter of dress. British thoroughfares nowadays resemble a convention of circus trainers lost in the midst of a fancy dress ball. ana "There are so many uniforms in Britain now," said this neutral, "that an invader could land in baseball uniform without exciting suspicion." Walk down a London street and you see what he means. The street cleaners of Westminster wear hats turned up on the side uke Australians. Telegraph messenger boys look like juvenile gendarmes of pre-Armistice France. Bank messengers wear outfits resembling the costume of old time minstrel men. Members of the air transport auxiliary look like bus conductors. "Free Norwegians" could be mistaken for Royal Canadian mounted police. Firemen look something like spear holders in gaudy operas. And then there are hackles which look like feathers but aren't. They bob along atop caps and hats in colors green, red and black. Still other troops wear berets, tamoshanters, skull caps. nun Hotel doormen in some places dress like admirals and generals, while generals and admirals in some places dress like hotel doormen. nun Navy men sport flowing beards, some of the army and air force wear mustaches, and lots of "free Poles" have shaven heads. Some weeks ago a London newspaper employed a film actor to stroll through the streets of London garbed as a Germany array officer just to see if anybody would notice. He strolled for hours, even looked in at busy Scotland Yard and peered through the gates of Buckingham palace. Nobody so much as gave him a dirty look. Although only about 10 per cent of Turkey's area is under cultivation 80 per cent of its people are engaged in farming. 0HTVAIHT long known for help in soothing and relieving the itching irritation of NEED CASH?

I have tried to make up my mind which of the books accumulated during the winter I can pass on to the libraries and high schools in Hyde Park village There are certain books that I feel I want to keep indefinitely. However, it seems selfish not to pass on a book so that others can read it, if one has enjoyed it and does not want to keep it permanently. Neverthe less, deciding what to keep is always difficult for me. Since it rained Friday afternoon, it was not so difficult to decide to stay indoors, but yesterday and today the weather was so beautiful that it was a shame not to be out as much as possible. I walked around yesterday morning, looked at every plant and shrub, and was delighted to find that the, little Pit of carefully tended lawn in front of my porch and Miss Thompson's porch really looks like a lawn, for the grass seems to be nice and thick and springy. All kinds of birds chirp and call to each other in the early morning around my sleeping porch. The robin, whose nest was so near my bathroom window last year that I could never shut it for fear of disturbing the mother bird, has not returned. I love spring in the country and at l?-t we have enough rain. Though the President is very anx Gen. Gort Awaits Fate At Gibraltar By DREW MIDDLETON (War Correspondent Drew Mid-dleton. vacationing' in the IT. S.. was with the British In Flanders a year ago and in this first of three articles he begins a description of Gen. Lord Gort from his observations in that campaign.) NEW YORK, May 26. (JP) The man. the hour and the place meet at Gibraltar, where Gen. Lord Gort, accounted Britain's bravest andf most obstinate soldier, commands that outpost of empire in the western Mediterranean in the hour of that empire's greatest danger. Shelved by the imperial general staff after the disastrous Flanders campaign. Gen. Gort has spent almost a year as inspector general of the British army. Held No Disgrace Apologists claimed this was no disgrace, for the inspector general's job, training the new army, is an important one. However, Gen. Gort, essentially a fighting soldier, dis liked the post. The man who led the British expeditionary force in Flanders is a throwback to the old type general. He does not resemble in the least the scholarly, reserved strategists who occupy most of the important positions in the British army. Gen. Gort looks like a soldier. He is six feet tall and weighs about 185 pounds. He has the traditional brush mustache, bright blue eyes. a round, aggressive chin, a bullet head. He keeps in shape by riding and walking, has an almost fanatical love for yachting and fresh air. Gen. Gort's reputation for bravery is almost legendary. During the World war. which he started as a captain and ended as a major, he won the Military Cross, the Distinguished Service Order with two bars and the Victoria Cross, the three British awards for gallantry open to army officers. Earned Victoria Cross The Victoria Cross was earned In Belgium in the great German drive of March, 1918. Then as now a man of great physical strength. Gen. Gort swam a canal five times bearing with him on each trip the body of a wounded tommy. Gen. Gort has the usual "old school tie" background of a British general. He was the eldest son of the fifth Viscount Gort, an Irish title running back to 1816. was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst. He went from Sandhurst to the grenadier guards, one of the swank regiments of the guards brigade, and then, when war came, transferred to the artillery. Twenty five years later, when a new war began. Gen. Gort was placed in command of the BEF. Next: The Battle of Flanders. There are no volcanoes in Australia.

S. A., MONDAY, MAY 26, 1941 ious to discover whether his youns trees have all survived the early spring drought, everything not newly planted seems to be unharmed. Yesterday noon I went to a well attended meeting held under the auspices of the National Vocational Guidance association at the Franklin D. Roosevelt high schooL A New York university group put on a skit about the "Follies" cf guidance. It was most entertaining. From there I went to the lunch at the Dutchess County Democratic clubs in Poughkeepsie, where Mrs. Charles Tillett. vice chairman of the Democratic national committee. Dean C. Mildred Thompson of Vassar and Miss Marion Dicker-man spoke, and a very charming young woman sang. I missed the first part of Dean Thompson's speech but heard all the others and was very happy to see Mrs. Tillett-for a few minutes. We were so grateful to her for taking the trouble to come from Charotte, N. C, for this luncheon. E. K. Buses Nave Novel Names Bn the Indies By RELMAN MORIN BATAVIA, Java. May 26. (JP) Jottings from the notebook of a reporter in the Orient: Nothinc so nrosaic a a nnmW or an initial marks the little native auto-buses in the Netherlands East Indies. They have names, calculated to match the passenger's every mood. The SimDle Inrfnnpw'an cw nmone and portents in every object and haDDenstance of his rlav. Anrl n he wants it in his jitney-bus as well. Thus, for the love-lorn commuter, there is "sweet child." "true love." "one heart," or 'Miss-red-rose-of-Java." If. on the other hand, he is feeling philosophical, he can wait and take "universal hope," "righteousness," or "new life." Very appropriate for the average man in the early morning "the crab." And even the professional panhandlers have their own conveyance, entitled, "everyone must live." m fc Which recalls the advertisement, written by some earnest oriental student of English, that burgeoned across a theater marquee in Canton. China. Announcing the arrival of a vaudeville troupe, it said: "Amazing! Colossal! Terrific! Each act is better than the next.' a a a A peculiar tropical problem worries air raid officers in the East Indies. During recent maneuvers, they plucked into newly-constructed shelters, and found them full of mosquitoes the equatorial breed which happily chews your leg off. There is a suspicion here that a real air raid might be less uncomfortable than a night with nature's own stukas. una The ways of American newspapermen are often perplexing to European censors in the Far East these days. They sometimes have difficulty undcrstandintr that it is possible to get news from other than authorized channels. Which may have occasioned the shock in a censor's voice recently when he read a cable and said to the newsman: "But you can't possibly know this. It hasn't been officially announced!" a n Hollywood movie studios would yearn for the simplicity of life in the Orient. The front door of a Malay film studio in Java has no grilled iron, no armed guards, de mands no passes. It is unprotected except for a sign which reads: "Do not enter unless you are an actor." Chocolates And History a Bit Mixed in Idaho Mrs. Zelida V. Palmer, formerly Zelida de la Nux. sends to The Star-Bulletin an interesting clipping from Boise, Ida., about "Owyhee" chocolates, supposedly named for the islands of "Owyhee" or Hawaii. The article follows: "Owyhee -Pronounced Oh-why-hee "This was the name given the beautiful Sandwich islands by Capt. James Cook when he discovered them on his second voyage in 1778. "Afterward they were called the Hawaiian islands. However, one of the islands in this group is still known as the Owyhee island. "The association of this name with a river, a range of mountains, and a county in Idaho came about through the activities of the Hudson Bay Co.. when in 1819 three Sandwich island Indians or Owy-hees. under Capt Donald Mackenzie were trapping on the river that now bears the name when they were attacked by a band of Snake Indians and killed. "After this time the river was known as the Sandwich Island river and later called the Owyhee river. The mountains and the county were subsequently named from the river. "Originally, as expressed by Capt. Cook, the word meant delightful, beautiful, satisfying." The chocolates and history are a bit mixed in Idaho. But the general effect is pleasant! 5 Minute Relief For Itchy Skin Or Remedy Free If Tetterine doesn't relieve skin itching due to Ecrema, Ringworm, Surface Rash. Athlete' Foot.

Navy Force In Isles To Be Increased By MAY DAY LO (Mi vi L. well known member of The SUr-Bulletin editorUl staff, ts now on a three months mainland trip.) COLUMBIA, Mo, May 14 "The United States navy jt ready to defend the country against any enemy." said Cmdr. Harry R. Thurber. director cf public rela tions. U5X in an interview with The Star-Bulletin here tday. "We will continue, however, to build up our naval strength he udded. "Any nation would be foolish to be satisfied with its fortifications and not continue to improve and strengthen them." Miss I.o Force To Be Increased He believes that more and nrnrf naval personnel would be sent V Hawaii. How much more, he would not say. except to explain that as many as would be needed to man the ships. The commander admitted that a great part of the naval strength is in Hawaiian waters but also would not say what part "Before the shutdown on information regarding the navy, we said that the major part of the navy is based in Hawaiian waters." he explained. "Now, however, we do not tell." "The importance of Hawaii in the navy program would depend upon who our enemy is." said Cmdr. Thurber. "If the war is in the Pacific, then Hawaii would be of first importance. If the war takes place in the Atlantic, then its importance would be greatly creased." Interested in Housing He expressed interest in the housing situation in Honolulu and said that he expected the navy would soon be able to take care of all its personnel. Cmdr. Thftrber. whose office is in Washington, D. C, was recently in Hawaii and said that he may return to the islands in July. He arrived from Washington this afternoon and will be one of the speakers at the Journalism Week banquet this evening. The banquet is the highlight of the Journalism Week program now being held at the University of Missouri. Retired British Admiral Returns To Quarterdeck Bv LARRY ALLEN ALEXANDRIA. Egypt. May 26. V) Gray haired 69 year old Sir Walter Henry Cowan, who joined the royal navy in the days when sails, instead of turbines, drove the fighting ships, is again serving at sea with Admiral Sir Andrew Browne Cunningham, comander in chief of the British Mediterranean fleet. Sir Walter, who retired with the rank of admiral in 1931, had sorie difficulty persuading the admiralty to allow him to return to the quarterdeck. When war broke out he applied for a fleet assignment, but the admiralty bluntly replied: "No, too old." "I know I have one foot in the grave." Sir Walter said when he later was assigned to the fleet, "but I wanted to come back." Sir Walter, who once gave orders to Admiral Cunningham, now takes them from his one time subordinate. The commander in chief, who was a destroyer captain under Sir Walter's command in 1926. welcomed him to the Mediterranean fleet, where he will serve as a liaison officer. Sir Walter entered the navy In the 80s, when the examiners demanded a sound knowledge of sail handling rather than familiarity with steam engines. He served in the eastern Mediterranean in campaigns at the turn of the century. He held captain's rank d jring the World war. From 1917 to W20 he commanded the first light cruiser squadron of the crand fleet- While he was commander in chief or me worth America and West In-d:es station. 1926-2fl, Sir Walter was given the rank of admiral. In the year preceding his retirement he served as first and principal naval aide to King George V. flews Calendar TODAY Concert by Gleemen of Honolulu, Di'-liricham hall. Punahou. 8:30 n m Meetinr.

Never before, she said, had she sat upon a horse at the angle (that is. side-saddle, but it was a simple scene. She and James Craig were to rida Plain Girls Able To Win husbands Too CHICAGO. May 26. 1JP Every woman of marriageable age in America, no matter how plain she may be. can snare a husband if she'll follow the simple psychological principal of "moral dominance. A psychologist. Dr. Robert N. McMurry, married and the father of a young son. has taken up the matrimonial cudgels of the girls who fear becoming spinsters and let them in on this "almost escape proof formula: a a a Just pick out the type of man over whom it's eay to achieve "moral dominance," and go to work in a businesslike manner until the "dominance" Is established avoiding "unnecessary sentimentality" and concluding the campaign with a situation in which he's made to feel "like a dog." "It Is relatively easy," said Dr. McMurry who is associate professor of personnel administration at Central YMCA college, "to establish the moral dominance over extremely conscientious individuals, those with strong feelings of inferiority, or those who have been dominated by their mothers, but generally speaking, from the wife's viewpoint, they make good husbands they're docile, steady and faithful. "It's very difficult to become morally dominant over the very selfish and criminal types, but they don't make good husbands anyway so can be eliminated from any given matrimonial campaign." After having picked your man, Dr. McMurry advises, give him the impression you're the one who "understands him." leading him to become dependent upon you, and then proceed as follows: a a a "On the pretense of being helpful, begin to point out some of hi more obvious weaknesses. This is the fiart of the program that requires the most finesse, but if It's done constructively it will be accepted because this type of man (the over-conscientious and those who feel Inferior) are prone to look for flaws in themselves and do not resent being told about their shortcoming. a a a "In this part of the campaign, the woman must take a leaf from Hitler's book always take the offensive. She must never let him get the upper hand.. "After she has established her moral dominance, there remains only the problem of getting him to commit himself or believe he has committed himself to marriage. "The preliminary step in this direction is to create situations in which the man will be led to make statements or indulge in acts 'perhaps a kiss which can be interpreted as compromising. "The next step is to apply moral pressure. This should always be done with dignity and restraint. There should be no scenes, the prevailing note should be that of quiet bravery. "If he demurrs or attempts to escape, he should be made to feel like a dog." And since the latest census figures show a man or more for every woman it should be a cinch for every girl if the formula will only work. swims. Waikiki mar memorial natato-rium. It a. m.

Barrymore's gestures and wild eye rollings fascinate the monkey and he imitates the Great Profile to perfection so accurately that the other day Barrymore stopped in the middle of a speech and said sternly, "My dear sir. if you must play in this scene with me, please get your own routine."
