MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 1936 FIVE SOME SCENES AT FIELD HOSPITAL Dying Italian Soldier Sends Money Home to His ' Daughters. (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is one of a series of "Typewriter Snapshots t: the Ethiopian War" by Edward J. Neil, Associated Press correspondent with the Northern Italian army.) By EDWAED J. NEIL Associated Press Foreign Staff. SOMEWHERE IN THE TEM- BIEN, (By Airmail and Boat to New York, UP)--On a cot in a field hospital lay a swarthy Italian, gasp- ing hard for breath, pain coming with each filling of the lungs. His face was twisted, his eyes bright, hard. The surgeon who had taken a bullet out of his stomach only a. few hours before talked to him quietly, tried to soothe him. But the man wanted to speak. Wave Whit* Flag. ~ "They waved a white flag . . · held up their hands . . . I went up to them. . . . one of them still had a gun . . . he shot me through the stomach." The surgeon patted the gasping man's shoulder. We walked away. "He's got six children in Italy," said the surgeon. "Too bad. Fever is up ... shows signs of infection. Afraid we're going to lose him." A priest was moving from cot to cot, tired but forcing himself on as long as there were men, fiesn out of the burning heat of Africa's hollows, the tortuous Ethiopian infest- ed rocks of its tangled mountains, who wanted his consolation. "Regulations are a funny thing," said the surgeon watching the priest. Shot Through Chest. "Fellow was dying here yesterday . . . shot through the chest . . . All the money he'd saved from the time he'd been in Africa was in a wallet in his inside pocket . . he- couldn't seem to rest until we'd promised the money had been sent to'his two daughters in Italy. " 'Not my wife, she'll spend it foolishly,'" the dying man said. 'My daughters only.' "He kept asking for the receipt . . . a money order receipt. An orderly went to the camp postoffice. They refused the money . . . it was soaked in blood. "The priest has the bloody money now. He sent his own money to the man's daughters. The man died when he saw the receipt." NOW!
