EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third In a ne\v series ol "typewriter snapshots of the Ethiopian war," by Edward J. Neil, associated Press correspondent with the Northern Italian army. By EDWARD J. NEIL Associated Press Foreign Staff SELACLACA. TAKAZZE REGION, Ethiopia, (By air mail and boat to New York) '(IP)--In a deep gorge, cutting through the middle of the Lush Selaclaca Plain, the Duke of Bergamo came close to death--at the hands of his own loyal soldiers--but won himself a hero's place in this war. Here in this sunken valley, the remnants of Ras Imru's army made their last stand before the Italians who shattered the bulk of Imru's 23,000 in two days f steady hand- to-hand fighting cany in March at the northern end of the plain. Here the Duke of Bergamo, commander of the Gran Sasso division of regulars, a slight, blond, soft spoken man of 40, more like a young librarian than a soldier, led his men into a hail of machine gun fire, led them until a sergeant forced him back on pain of death. Means Certain Death. The Ethiopians had planted machine grins at the far side of the valley top, commanding the other side. The ravine was full of desperate natives. Their lire was deadly. The range was too long for hand gre- nade. To go that close meant certain death. Up to them the Gran Sasso advanced, then stopped, and up from the rear charged the Duke, cousin of .King Victor Emmanuel. A revolver in one hand, a hand grenade in the other, he took command of the first company he encountered in the plain facing the gorge, and roared out the battle cry of his ancient house "SavoJa. 1 " Through Italian history that cry has rung, the name of the Duke's own royel family, symbolic now of "charge with cold steel." He was crying his own house name, but to the Italians it meant "fix bayonets and charge." Duke Leads Thorn. They swept forward into the Ethiopian fire, the duke ahead of them. They tried to stop him. He wouldn't stop. Two soldiers tried to tackle him. They missed. Then the sergeant found a way. Waving- a great sword he had picked up from a fallen Ethiopian, he raced in front of the Duke. "Go back, go back, your highness," he screamed. "You can't do this. Go back, go back, your highness, or I'll cut your head off." His highness stopped. The Italians swept through the machine gun fire into the ravine. The Ethiopians broke. And the Duke stayed behind.

There is no compromise with safety in the Ford V-8 for 1936. Ford safety begins with the desire to make a safe car, regardless of cost. It is carried through every detail of design and construction.

Join (he Veterans of Future Wars. See your post commander." "We'll get our bonus or bust. Veterans of Future Wars." "Join now. Veterans of Future Wars."
