Ethiopian Emperor Directs
Ceremonial Launching
Of Empire's Red Cross
ROME, Aug. 6. - (P) -Premier
Mussolini called 75,00 more men to
arms today "as a consequence of
heavy Ethiopian mobilizations."
Specifically, he ordered the mo-
bilization of two regular army divi-
sions and a volunteer Fascist black-
shirt division and created two re-
placement divisions.
The long-expected "communique
No. 9" announced the new increase in
Italy's fighting strength.
It stated the Asietta division of the
regular army, commanded by Gen.
Riccardi has been called.
The mobilization order brought the
number of divisions already sent to
East Africa or in training for service
there to seven regular army and six
blackshirt militia.
Total Near 195,000
Estimating the strength at an av-
erage of 15,000 men to a division, the
order will bring Italy's white forces
in Eritrea and Italian Somaliland to
195,000 men.
A check of southern embarcation
points indicates that almost 100,000
of these already have departed.
Two divisions of natives, raised in
East Africa early this year, increased
the regular territorial forces of 10,000
Thus, it is estimated that 140,0001
troops already are in line in the two
With the arrival of the new con-'
tingents in training, or about to start
training in Italy, the total figure will
be swelled to 235,000.
Launch Red Cross
ADDIS ABABA, Aug. 6. -- ()-Em-
peror Haile Selassie directed person-
ally today a new phase of Ethiopia's
preparations for possible war withI
Italy-the ceremonial launching off
the empire's Red Cross.E
An imperial tent, lavishly decorated
in oriental style, was erected in the
court of the building especially leased
as the new Red Cross home. Addis<
was built for the king of kings.
The first meeting was called today
to press the camping for Red Cross
subscriptions, elect a board of di-
rectors and complete organization of
the body. Foreign Minister Bellaten
Gueta Herouy was named president
by the emperor.t
From the humanitarian viewpointE
Ethiopia's adherence to the red crosst
was understood to mean there would
be no repetition of the sequel to the
crushing of an Italian expedition at
Adua 40 years ago, when many Ital-
ian prisoners allegedly were mutilat-a

Except on special occasions when
the historic cataract has been arti-
ficially fed with city water, the falls
during summer months have been
no more than a trickle.
The work plan involves the raising
of Lake Minnetonka, near here, by
construction of a series of channels
to'divert water from the Crow River
into the lake. Restoration of the
lake level, now six feet below normal
after years of steady rec'essio'n, would
again cause Minnehaha creek, Min-
netonka's natural outlet, to gurgle

over the historic falls on its way to
the Mississippi.
Detailed plans for the diversion
project have been completed and filed
at SERA headquarters in St. Paul.
Engineers estimate the development
willcost $640,000.

Committee To
Probe Strike
Detroit Women Decide To
Extend Meat War Over
Wayne County
DETROIT, Aug. 6. -(A - Detroit
neat dealers turned over to a com-
:nittee of 11 today the task of finding
an answer to the demands of striking
housewives that meat prices come
down 20 per cent.
The committee, named at a meeting
3f 250 dealers last night, was em-
powered to draft immediate plans to
protect the interests of the harassed
butchers during the strike, now en-
tering its third week, and to request
the aid of police and the county
prosecutor's staff.
While the butchers met, the strik-
ers also were busy. Mrs. Mary Zuk,
chairman of the group initiated the
strike, presided at a meeting of Ham-
tramck, Dearborn and west side direct
action committee at which a general
Wayne county strike was declared in
The strike was expanded to include
poultry, with the decision to include
it in the banned meat list left to
individual communities.
Proposals were made at the meeting
of the dealers that marketing author-
ities be asked to meet with the strik-
ing consumers and explain the pres-
ent meat prices.
Daniel A. Ford, of the United States
bureau of agricultural economics, told
the dealers their prices were com-
parable to those of Chicago and oth-
er mid-western cities, and said there
was little prospect of a reduction by
packing houses. Market conditions
are such, he said, that in spite of
strike activities most wholesale prices
probably will be increased 20 per cent
this week.
. Picketing activities were at a stand-
still today as Mrs. Zuk announced the
strikers- would concentrate their ef-
forts on the weekend marketing days.!
California's orange crop has been
estimated at 42,115,000 boxes, an in-
crease of about 37 per cent over last

MONTCLAIR, N. J., Aug. 6. - (?)-
A mechanical engineer, the mnother of
11 children, is going to Purdue Uni-

"Motion minded persons," says Dr.
Lillian M. Gilbreth - she has been
called America's outstanding woman
engineer - "are those who know how
to conserve energyby eliminating
waste motion and effort in their work.

be surprised at the amount of energy
you waste with useless motion.
Hint For A Housewife
"Housewives can save energy by
studying their tasks," she holds.
"Why, for instance, should a laundry
be in the cellar and a sewing room on
the second floor? The two tasks are
closely related. Put the sewing ma-
chine in the laundry and you save mo-
"I go to the city to buy a dress. I
try it on and buy it. The dress is
takcn from the hanger, pressed,
wrapped in yards of tissue after it is
folded. Then it is placed in a box
which is tied with string, and de-
livered to me. I untie the box, I take
the tissue off. I unfold the dress. I
press it again. Then I place it back
on a hanger, just as it was in the
store. Why couldn't the store leave
the dress on the hanger, hang it in
a truck, and deliver it to me? Waste
motion and lost energy."
Her husband, the late Dr. Frank B.
Gilbreth, who died 11 years ago, was
the originator of "motion study." It
was not his purpose to increase a
worker's production. He taught men
how to do a day's work with less
effort and fatigue. He photographed
bricklayers at work, and told them
how to make their jobs easier by

eliminating certain arm and leg
He experimented before his shav-
ing mirror, and concluded that task
could be accomplished with less effort
and motion if two brushes were used.
Now his widow is carrying on his
work. She lectures, teaches, and is
employed as a consulting engineer by
numerous large industries. She is a
world authority on the subject of mo-
tion as it relates to the conservation
of energy in industry. Pencils and
other implements are arranged on the
desk of her office-laboratory so they
can be reached and put into use with
a minimum of effort and motion.
True Of Leisure, Too
"Go through the proper motions in
doing your task," she says, "and you
can be less worried about the kind
of a product you are going to turn
out. That is true of leisure as well as
"Every person knows that if he goes
through the proper motions when
hitting a golf ball, he need not worry
about where the ball is going. Waste
motion doesn't improve the shot. On
the contrary, it harms it. The same
is true of the industrial product."
At Purdue, Dr. Gilbreth will be
professor of management.
