ETHIOPIA MAS GARDEN OP PLENTY FOR FARMERS BY CHARLES NORMAN (Associated Press Staff Writer) The Shadow of Italy's African le- gtohs lies across "the finest piece of Unappropriated real estate on the international horizon." That Is the designation given Abyssinia, the largest and most fertile portion of Ethiopia, by Wilfred H. Osgood, curator of zoology, Field Museum, Chicago. It Is a country that abounds in livestock, estimated to number millions! cattle, sheep, goats and poultry are plentiful. It is capable of being converted into one vast granary, said another observer. The entire surface of Abyssinia shows traces of past volcanic upheavals. Now most of the crater .shells are milled with the water of the country's extensive lake system. Iron and coal are found everywhere. Gold is washed from the • sand of mountain streams. Gocljam is rich in silver, saltpdter, sulphur, and copper deposits. Rock salt is quarried in Taltnlls. Cotton and coffee are important crops. Medicinal springs abound. Abyssinia, proper Is a farmers' paradise. Perpetual spring weather reigns in many localities, and in these crops are numerous and abundant, Every agricultural product can be raised wHh ease with the assistance of a bountiful nature, and two and three crops of wheat, barley and maize often are harvested In a year. Only one species of livestock is conspicuously among the missing. The Ethiopians, Coptic Christians since about 300 years after the death of Christ, do not eat pork. Terrain Rough They like hot, peppery dishes and raw meat, which is considered a great delicacy. Between Eritrea and Italian Somaliland and the Ethiopian highlands He vast, waterless plateaux covered with grass and scrub growths—an uninviting wasteland through which invading soldiers would have to pass. The mountainous terrain of the interior represents seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and there are few cities which offer effective targets for artillery or air raids. Addis Ababa, the capital; Harrar, center of Emperor Halle Selassie's own province, and Dlre-Dawa are the only towns of any considerable size. The rough regious that make Abyssinia proper a turreted castle of a country offer slight opportunities for landing planes or. for their take-off. Brownsville to Hold Celebration . .

A mammoth pageant will be a feature of the celebration. Anothei will be a "parade of transportation. 1 It Is practically certain that Vice President John N.

Vice President Garner is considered by Brownsville as the man chiefly responsible for success of the long fight to get deep water.
