NEIL CopyrigHt, li)30, by The Associated Press) ASMARA, Eritrea, (By Wireless to Rome)--Italy's northern army and the personal troops of Emperor Haiie Selassie maneuvered carefully Thursday toward what was considered the impending death struggle of the war in Ethiopia. ' The little rainy season, which had already begun locally in various sectors of the northern front, finally set in with characteristic African viciousness, but military authorities asserted the heavy downpour would fail to retard the operations. The Ethiopian emperor withdrew his forces to the heights overlooking Lake Ashangi, 30 miles south of Araba Alaji, to await the second phase of the decisive encounter--expected to be an attack by the army of Marshal Pietro Badoglio. Emperor Halle Selassie himself launched what was believed to be the opening move of the climactic struggle on the northern front Wednesday, throwing 20,000 of the finest troops of his bodyguard at the left Italian flank, just north of Lake Ashangi." The emperor's attempt to split the two invading auny corps failed, the Italian headquarters said, but only after an all-day battle, marked by a terrific attack and counter-attack in the verdant hills and rolling plains bordering the Macan river, eight miles north of the lake. ITALIAN CASUALTIES WEBE HEAVIER, CLAIM ADDIS ABABA, (JP--The Ethiopian government asserted Thursday Italian casualties were morg than three times heavier than those suffered by the Ethiopians in the battle of Mai'Ceu, near Lake Ashangi, between the northern Italian and imperial Ethiopian armies.
