Some members doubt ed the constitutionality of the measure, though approbation of its motive was generally ex pressed. Now comes authoritative In formation that the bill has been submitted to Attorney General McMullan and that he has given an opinion declaring it constitu tional. Every indication is that the measure will come back to the house early next week with a favorable committee report and that it will become law. War Interpretive BY KIRK L. SIMPSON Italian arms, poured into North Africa to further Fascist dreams of a vast Trans-Mediterranean empire, are being turned against their erst while owners. Captured in undisclosed quantity in Egypt and Libya in defeats which cost Italy 100,000 or more prisoners taken by the British, those made-in Italy rifles, machine guns, grenades and field guns are already appering in East Africa, where Ethiopian tribesmen are in revolt against their Italian conquerors. Emperor Haile Selassie, the Lion of Juda, has again raised his green and yellow banner over Ethiopian soil. Arms wrested by the British from Fascist foes in North Africa are quickly equipping Ethiopian natives for an effort, with British help, to sweep Italian forces out of all East Africa. There are no official figures for the extent of British armament captures at Sida Barrani, at Tobruk. It is un questionably very large. aCiro has reported great ammunition and sup ply dumps taken intact. In those victories in North Africa the British have acquired Italian arms and ammunition suited to the use of Haile Selassie’s warriors with out tapping British reserves in Africa or in England. Like Greek armament captures in the Albanian campaign those lost weapons deal Italy a dou ble blow. They not only decrease her own powers of defense; but augment the offensive operations of her foes. It is reasonable to suppose that the British in Africa now' have available from Italian sources fighting equip ment for 50,000 to 100,000 or even more Ethiopian tribesmen. Had the Lion of Juda’s foices possessed such armament in 1936, the Italian con quest of Ethiopia might have been averted. British captures of usable Italian tanks and other motorized equipment in North Africa have been stressed. Mechanized equipment will play a less important part in East Afric an guerrilla campaigning than In North Africa except as to transport ation of weapons and ammunition from East to West. There are no certain estimates of the total Italian force thinly spread through Eritrea, Ethiopia, British and Italian Somaliland. It cannot be large and it has been cut off from Italy for seven months, even more than the Libyan army. Italian retirement from the Anglo Egyptian Sudan some 60 miles into Eritera under pressure is an att empt not only to protect rail hea ’s but to shorten over-extended lines. There was grave menace of an Ethi pian flanking attack if that force had not been quickly withdrawn. Italian evacuation of British Eoraa liland and much of Eritrea to con centrate forces in a few defensible centers in East Africa would cause little surprise. Italian Eritrea, flank ing the Red Sea approach to the Suez WHITFIELD TALKS ; ON LATIN AMERICA — ■ C Advocate Of Good-Neighbor Policy Speaks At Sorosis 5 Clubhouse t _ C Vivian Whitfield, continuing his jj lectures Friday night at the Sorosis ^ clubhouse, complimented the Uni versity of North Carolina in offering hospitality to South American edu cators who have recently arrived in Chapel Hill. It would be even bet ter for the relationships between the two Americas if a group of North American educators would go to South American universities for the same purpose, he said. ■‘A good neighbor policy is one which works both ways. While we should not be arrogant or patroniz ing, neither should we be willing to let them confiscate our property as we did in the oil fields,” Whitfield pointed out. “The Latin Americans were very much disturbed when we built the Panama Canal, but when we paid them $25,000,000 for our interest in the oil fields, they W'ere very much ameliorated.” Whitfield’s three South American countries for discussion this week were Bolivia, Ecuador and Colum bia. The United States does not allow a representative to remain at the capital of Bolivia more than one year because of the effect upon the heart to any person besides a native at the 12,000 altitude, he said. The world is dependent on Bolivia for tin. Ecuador is known as the art center of South America, he said. It is one of the most tranquil of the South American countries and has had only one major political upheaval. Its president is virtu ally a dictator, because the Latin American countries were so inex perienced when they received their independence, the presidents by necessity became almost dictators. Columbia’s capital is considered the Athens of South America, said Whitfield. It has produced more poets and literary artists than all the other South American countries. The Germans own all interests in Columbia besides the airlines which are owned by the United States. These air bases must be watched because of their proximity to the Panama Canal, said Whit field. One of the curses of South Ameri can agriculture, he said, is the one crop system. The United States has a wonderful opportunity to teach the people diversified farm ing. “South America realizes her need of us, as much as we realize our need of her neighborliness,” he said. 1 INVENTOR LANCASTER, Pa , Jan. 25.—CS1)— Joseph Arce, jailed two years for stealing clothing, spent his time per fecting an invention.
