LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAR, SEPTEMBER 1, 1935 THREE A REICH TOURISTS GET AMPLE DOSES OF Americans Visiting in Germany Shown the Brighter Side of Life. a. BERLIN. UP). Many American tourists are finding out at first hand what Is , meant by propa' s-anda. Thev also are findinsr in Germany a very cordial welcome, from the traditionally cordial Ger man people, from those elated persona who find their tourist business resembles the good old days, and from 3 million nazia who regarded the visitors as getters of PROPAGANDA friends ror their cause ana coud x try. "Everywhere we go weare given ample doses of propaganda," said one American couple. "Hotel men. for example, ask us how we like the reich, and then launch into" a set speech about nazidom and all its wonders. They always stress how quiet Germany is, and how terrible the unemployment situa tlon must be in the United States.' What difficulties the nazia have in campaigns against Jews, the Stahlhelm war veterans' organiza-tijltion, and "political Catcholicism" are made no more apparent than necessary to the visitors. Rather, visitors are shown one building project after another, treated to a succession of speeches extolling Eazi. efforts against unemployment, and given object lessons in how peasant and urbanite live. Exhibit the Bright Side. Said a young American stu-.. dent: "I looked for evidences of a monster airfleet and army, but saw none. I didn't see any indications of actions against Jews, for example. This is a beautiful country, and I am more disposed to believing the speeches I've heard from nazis than reports about it." Later, however, after acting on the suggestions that he stroll thru side streets away from the main Vmnlavorria tn ma AlnatfinfiMi rf All. ti-Jewlsh actions and that he ln-culre about meat prices, he ad mitted his estimate was not en- - tirely correct Students attending Institutions here express satisfaction with treatment In general, but lament that "even professors feel it necessary to tell us more than we care to hear about such matters as the efficiency of the labor service." They also remark, on the basis of what they hear and see, about the great energy displayed by the nazi movement in building, but generally they are not reminded that many developments clamed by the nazis as their own are really Institutions of previous regimes, or results for which earlier governments laid the groundwork. All in all, however, the Americans traveling In Germany seem to be having a good time. Prices Comparatively Low. Prices, many of them agree, are comparatively low, for Germany a nation itself of tourists has many hostels and hotels in which a bed and breakfast cost from 4 American cents upward, and they are uniformly clean and attractive. An American pair bicycled thru southern and central Germany for two weeks with a total outlay in the neighborhood of $40, including $5 for the use of the wheels. In contrast, another American couple, here on their honeymoon, complained bitterly of the costs of hir ing their individual automobile to travel from Hamburg to Berlin, the expense of Berlin's best hotel, and taxi fares for seeing the city, Most royally entertained, per haps, of all Germany's foreign tourists have been more than a 1,000 boys of German extraction from fifty-seven countries, who spent some time at a youth camp and then were taken on an ambi tious sightseeing tour of the coun try. Among the leaders who ad dressed them was Minister of Tropaganda Goebbels, who de clared, "I wish and hope that also in your hearts there will be the glittering impression of the greatness of the time in which we Ger mans are living." HURT IN A CAR ACCIDENT Three Omaha Negroes Injured Near MiUard. MILLARD. Neb. UP). Three Ne groes were injured one perhaps seriously, when the car in which they were riding went off the road and overturned twice three miles west of here. Josephine Woods of Omaha ap-parently was most seriously in- lured. She suffered a concussion of the brain and a possible skull fracture. Eugene Rayford, driver of the car, and Rny Stokes, both of Omaha, suffered face cuts. JOHNSON HIKES WPA WAGE Administrator Sends Olive Branch to Labor. NEW YORK. UP).

Effective Sunday, General Johnson announced, unskilled workers will receive $60.50 a month instead of $55. Union leaders continued their plans, however, for a mass demonstration and parade next week calling for enforcement of the prevailing scale on WPA jobs. They also planned to seek from President Roosevelt a special order exempting New York City from the security wage provisions or wa. E L'atenser Is Jubilant When 7 Millions Requested in Late Rush. OMAHA. UP). A $7,000,000 deluge of applications for PW A grants and loans poured into the office of John Latenser, jr., state PWA director, as communities thruout Nebraska joined in a last minute rush to beat the Tuesday midnight deadline. Three of the largest applications came from counties seeKing 10 build self-liquidating toll bridges across the Missouri river. Dakota county asked $1,650,000 to build a bridge across the Missouri connecting South Sioux City, Neb., and Sioux City, la., while Knox county filed an application for $750,000 to construct a bridge at Niobrara. Burt county also asked $700,000 for a bridge at Decatur. All three of these counties were given authority to build interstate bridges by the recently adjourned congress. . The largest application come from the Pathfinder Irrigation district at Mitchell, which seeks aid in constructing a concrete lining on eighteen miles of its interstate canal at a total cost of $1,989,000. R. O. Chambers of Minatare, president of the district, said the concrete lining would halt the serious water loss which ensues where the canal is dug thru sand and gravel. The state PWA director ques tioned the authenticity of press dispatches from Washington which indicated PWA's share of the 54,- 480,000 work relief fund probably would be sliced from $900,000,000 to $300,000,000.

If Italy goes to war with Abyssinia, what kind of a defense can the Abvssinians make? Against Mussolini's hundreds of bombing airplanes, tanks, armoured cars, heavy artillery, gas warfare, and his vastly Detter or ganized and cohesive army, for eign mlltary experts here are agreed that Emperor Haile Selassie has little more to oppose to the Italian forces than the personal bravery of his warriors, antiquated rifles, old fashioned spears, plus the natural defenses of Abyssinia in the way of high mountains, deep ravines, impassable rivers, and impenetarable thickets of camelthorn and brush. Other factors in the emperor's favor are the serious lack in many parts of Abyssinia of drinking water, the devastating heat, and the existence of fever, dysentery and typhoid. These elements are easily over come by some of the Ethiopian tribes, inured to the climate and hardships of their land, but doubtless will impose great hardships on the Italians. 650 Italian Planes Mass. Mussolini is reported to have 650 modern bombing and pusuit airplanes concentrated near the Abyssinian frontier. Against these the emperor can send . up only eight old type planes, none of them built for bombing. Abyssinia, of course, has no tanks nor ar moured cars, nor has she any heavy artillery or gas and chemical warfare apparatus. More serious still, the Ethiopian army has no regular commissariat nor sup ply service, no medical nor engl neering corps, no communications service, and no motorized trans' port organization. There is a scarcity of doctors in Abyssinia. If an Ethiopian soldier is wounded, he may be left to die where he has fallen. If he does not succumb to his - wounds, hungry hyenas and jackals, prowling thru the night, are sure to devour him. The same fate doubtless awaits Italian troops who fall within the Ethiopian lines, unless their own comrades manage to rescue them. The Abyssinian army is very loosely organized. , Against Mussolini's 250,000 trained and disciplined soldiers, who are equipped with thoroly modern rifles and machine guns, with all the adjuncts of a highly organized and efficient army, the emperor of Abyssinia probably can muster 40,000 regular soldiers' and 500,000 irregulars, all rather poorly equipped. The nucleus of the emperor's army will be the royal guard of 7,000 men, who are moderately well-equipped and who have been trained by Belgian officers. Depend on Feudal Forces. The rest of the army of. the "king of kings" will be provided by the provincial rases or governors on the baronial feudal system, each contributing a certain allotment to the national defense. According to the present plans of the Ethiopian general staff, Ras Seyoum, of Tigre province, who probably' will be called upon to bear the brunt of an attack if one comes from Adowa and Aksum, in the north, will provide 50,000 men; the powerful Ras Kassa, the emperor's cousin, who is stationed in the Gondar region, is expected to furnish 75,000 fighters; Dedjas-match Vodadje, who is stationed at Dessie, will supply 40,000 warriors; Ras Imru, in Gojam province, is expected to mobolize 35,000 soldiers; Dadj Nasseru, -t Harrar, the emperor's birthplace, will muster 25,000 braves. In addition to this total of 225,-000 good fighting men, it is ex pected the emperor will be able, if general mobolization is proclaimed, to call to the colors 500,000 men from the countryside, for in Abyssinia every man is a soldier. These men will be expected to carry enough food to last thirty days. The emperor himself has no fears for his army. He has infinite faith in their daring, heroism and resourcefulness, particularly in guerilla warfare in the mountains, an art in which the native Ethiop ian tribesman probably excells any European soldier. But the Abyssinian sovereign is much worried about the army s lack of munitions, which is said to be due largely to the embargo im posed by the great powers on the shipment of arms to Abyssinia. The emperor Is also concerned over LOOK TO NATUR AID WARFAR A DISCOVERY, Many Lincoln people have recently learned that investments, large and small, in this Association are insured 100 by the Federal Savings & Loan Insurance Corporation, an instrumentality of the United States Government. There are about 1,000 associations in the United States offering such a plan with many millions so protected. IS YOUR INVESTMENT INSURED? -Write or call -for free"booklet'.

At present the Ethiopian army is understood to have only ten or eleven million rounds of cartridges, whereas the emperor estimated he needs three times as much. It is because of the lack of sufficient ammunition that the army is not able at present to .carry out rifle practice or maneuvers. OKLAHOMA TO TEST REPEAL Governor Marland Assents to Initiative Proposal. OKLAHOMA CITY. UP). Tacit approval of a move for a vote on an initiated proposal to repeal the Oklahoma state prohibition law was given by Goverland Mar-land.. He said he had promised a delegation of hotel men, wholesalers, druggists and restaurant men that he would order a vote at the first primary next July on a prop erly drawn repeal and control measure. The repeal or proniDi-tion in Texas makes It more Im perative for Oklahoma to give more attention to the subject, the governor declared. FAl!llI Dozen Midwesterners Attack Levy on Hogs as Cutting Their Income. CHICAGO. UP). A dozen mid- western hog farmers In a suit at tacked the constitutionality of the processing tax and alleged that contrary to its purpose it reduced their income. They asked the Cook county superior court to order eight Chicago packing companies to pay them back. Their bill demanded an account ing to determine whether they should be "repaid ' part of the $6, 000,000 in processing taxes which the packers had allegedly with held from the government pending a federal court decision on constitutionality of the tax. James C. Spence, one of the plaintiffs' attorneys, said: "This is not a suit to embarrass the pack ers in their fight to have the proc essing tax knocked off. My clients also believe it is unconstitutional, "They further believe that the tax came out of their pockets in the form of reductions from the prices they received for their hogs. They want the packers to win their federal court fight. - Then my clients want to recover their share of the tax held by the packers." Spence said his clients, all from Iowa and Illinois, were "merely typical hog raisers" and not representatives of any farm or political organization. In their bill they asked that results of the suit, if successful, apply to all other hog farmers. The bill set forth that the plaintiffs all shipped hogs to the defendants during the months in which the processing tax was collected which the packers withheld from the government under protection of a federal court injunction. MYSTERY INJPLOIT FIRM Standard Oil Company Not Heady to Father It. NEW YORK. UP). An air of melodramatic mystery enveloped the New York headquarters of the African Development Exploration company following announcement In Addis Ababa that the firm had obtained - exploitation - rights di rectly in the path of Italy's pro jected march thru Ethiopia. Investigation of the company's brief history disclosed it was incorpo rated at Dover, Del., on July 11, 1935, by the United States Corporation company, a firm which spe cializes in obtaining charters for other interests. The incorporators were listed as Alfred W. Britten, Edward S. Wil liams and Vincent W. Westrup, who were found at the offices of the United States Corporation company at 150 Broadway, which also served as "headquarters" of the African development firm None of the three would discuss the real backers of the African firm, asserting their clients had insisted on the utmost secrecy. The firm's charter authorizes It to drill for oil, seek out precious stones, gold, silver and asphalt, and to engage in the work of general development. Francis M. Rlckett the British promoter who negotiated the deal, said in Addis Ababa that the con cern was controlled by the Stand ard Oil company, but up until night none of the various Stand ard Oil groups had come forward to claim affiliation. W. F. Farish, chairman of the Standard Oil com pany of New Jersey, said it had no connection with his company, Officers of the Socony-Vacuum Oil company who could be reached said they had not been advised of V iederalSavings AND LOAN ASJOC1ATI0N OF LINCOLN M.

LEADS IN CLEVELAND RACES Harold Neumann Takes More Than Share of Victories. CLEVELAND. UP). Aviation poured out its whole bag of tricks to the delight of approximately 60,000 spectators at formal opening of the national air races. Harold Neumann of Moline, Til., proved to be the big star. Neu mann first won one of a series of races for the Louis W. Creve trophy, with a speed of 212.716 miles an hour. Then he took second in a forty mile free-for-all for planes of S75 cubic inches displacement Next, the Moline filer enter tained the crowd with upside-down flying. In lading, his plane was damaged slightly and be was cut about the mouth. A moment later, Neumann hopped out of his plane and hurried to tell the crowd the trouble "wasn't serious." Un daunted by this mishap, which oc curred when his plane struck a bump and partly nosed over, Neumann took anotber plane into the second of the fifty mile dashes for the Greve trophy. Again Neumann won, this time with a speed of 194 miles an hour. The twenty-five mile Amelia Earhart trophy race for women fliers was won by Melba Beard of New York City. - Mrs. Grace Prescott of San Diego, Califi., was announced the winner of the Ruth Chatterton derby from Los Angeles to Cleveland. Men also competed in the derby event, which was decided chiefly on the basis of navigating skill. Art Chester, of Glenvlew, 111., averaged 189.384 miles an hour to win by less than eight seconds a forty mile free-for-all race for planes of S75 cubic inches dis placement.
