ADVENTISTS TO BROADEN WORK Church Raises Funds to Reopen Hospitals Plans to s t a f f hospitals in Ethiopia with Christian physicians and nurses, and to" extend work into vast sections of Africa calling for mission schools and clinics, were discussed by the Sabbath school of the Mason City Seventh Day Adventists church in a special program recently. Ethiopian hospitals operated by the Adventists at the request of Emperor Haile Selassie before the Italian occupation have been reopened, it is reported, and will continue their work. Leaders announce that other missions projects highlighted during the quarter by Sabbath schools , the world around, and for which special funds are provided this week, include a medical center in the ancient city o£ Baghdad, the securing of ah Adventist doctor tor Jerusalem, and the re-location of their training school now in Beirut, Syria. It is reported that the training school has, during the past 5 years, sent 16 young men into these Bible lands as teachers and preachers. One of its out- schools is described as located 2 miles from the ruins o£ Nineveh, and having a staff of G teachers .and an enrollment of 150 pupils.

Looks Like War on Erin Somewhere in Italy, (U.R)--"Gus- sie the Goose" was a smart bird. When she joined up with a battery of British gunners at .El Alamein she quickly discovered that the cook-house was the center of a soldier's life. All the way -across the western desert, in Tunisia, Sicily and Italy "Gussie," who was adopted as the battery's official mascot, never otice missed chow. So it was natural one day when she got lost in the mountains of Italy where the gunners were resting, that she turned up at the cook-house of a nearby camp -- the London Irish Regiment. Two of the famous regiment's cooks were discussing how they would disguise the evening's ration b£ corned beef when "Gussie" waddled up, honking happily. "Shure an' it's a miracle," said one of the cooks. "Be iabers, it 'tis that,^ replied the other. "It \yid be timptin' Providence to allow th' paur cratur t' git mixed up in a battle, nauw, widn't it?" asked cook No. 1. "It wid shurely," replied cook No. 2. "Let's git t' work!" Some time later a. party of anxious gunners dropped in and asked, "Anybody seen a goose hereabouts?" · The Irish cooks replied in the negative, but an ammunition passer discovered a pile of white feathers behind the cook-house. "Gussie" was listed on the bat- ry's roll as "Missing . . . ttue to perfidy." There was some talk of shelling the Irish camp, but nothing ever came of it.
