The wise British nave known all
along that there wa to be no war,
but thought It well to Indulge In
virtuous demonstrations. '
Britons rarely make diplomatic
mistakes; diplomats of other coun
tries are children Xo them, although
France Is an exception to that rule.
Washington believes the war will
end In 60 days, and ha probably
been told so by somebody In Europe.
Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., president of
General Motor, announces "all sig

Capturing Aksum will impress
Ethiopians. The holy city, surren
dered by the Ethiopians without a
shot, contains the tombs of an
Ethiopian rulers since the time of
Sheba. The Coptic Christian blah
op of Aksum voluntarily gave the
keys of the city to the Italian Gen.
Emille de Bono, at Aduwa. He ac
cepted the keys, proclaimed Italy's
annexation of Aksum, sent force
to surround the city and prevent
looting the monasteries and the an
cient cathedral of St Mary Zion.
In that cathedral the original Ark
of the Covenant is believed to be
preserved. Ethiopian history re
lates that when Solomon sent the
son of his high priest, with other
sons of great dignitaries, to accom
pany Sheba's son after his visit to
his father, the son of the high priest
took the original Ark of the Cove
nant with him. substituting an Imi
tation ark, much to the indignation
of Solomon and that high priest In
justice to the high priest's son, it
must be stated that an angel ap
peared and gave him instructions
about stealing the ark.
George Bernard Shaw discovers
that Ethiopia, so-called, Is an ag
gregation of tribes, one ruled fairly
well by Halle Selassie, who Is
called "Emperor," the others doing
about as they please.
In some of these tribes, what
pleases the natives would seem
strange to us. For Instance, among
the Danakils a lady will not marry
a gentleman until he proves that he
has killed at least four men. And
he most prole It by bringing back
the easily identified fragments of
four mutilated bodies. Married

of which have absolutely no basis

For . instance, there Is the one
about Henry Morgenthau, Jr.. The
secretary of the treasury Is enjoy

there Is seriously circulated the
story that he Is to be- eased out

4 Whereas Morgenthau has been the
Ideal "Tea. Man." to the President
His first thought at all times is to
do Just precisely what' the Pros-'
Went want, and to tell the Presi

simply swell : He has never sought

: So this observer believes that Mr.

go, . will get a .wonderful - send-off.
and with no such lame - excuse ' as

Then there Is the -story abopt
Herbert Hoover's motive in attract
ing so much limelight : This Is that
Hoover .really has no Idea of being
a candidate, but Intends, to hold
the limelight; and make .no state
ment which would take Mm out of
the apparent race before,- say, next
February. The- explanation given
for this Is , that Hoover wants- to

persons- as to actual . conditions, Is
that there Will not be any real con

example, that Britain will ever actu
