House a year ago,,into War depart-

"We had a power lobby that creat-
ed a furore in Washington by spend-

"And here we have you, a single
firm, spending nearly $500,000 around

American Editor Seized
On Charge Of Opposing
BERLIN, July 18. - (A') - Gen.
Herrmann Wilhelm Goering, Ger-
many's Secret Police chief, came
back today from conferring with
Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler in the Ba-
varian mountains to fire another
broadsde in Nazism's newest drive
againstthe Catholic Church.
He issued an order to criminal
prosecution authorities to enforce
strictly decrees against "political
Catholicism," asserting this sort of
Catholicis'm "must be overcome by
positive National Socialism."
A few hours later Secret Police
seized M. C. Harbeck, American editor
of the German edition of the maga-
zine, Golden Age, published in Berne,
Switzerland, by the International
Bible Students Society, alleging
among other things that the Berne
edition of the journal continuously
attacked the Nazi regime.
Harbeck, who was allowed to com-
municate -with the American Con-
sulate General, also was accused of
attempting to remove money from
attached properties of the Interna-
tional Bible Students Society's sealed
printingplant at Magdeburg, and of
maintaining connections with the
Watch Tower Bible and Tract So-
ciety, banned by the Nazis.
Anti-Jewish demonstrations, ac-
companied by intermittent violence,
of Monday and Tuesday were over-
shadowed by the increasing bitterness
of the now open conflict between
church and state.
Anti-Semitic propaganda contin-
ued, however, in the shape of ad-
vertisements of the rabid anti-Jewish
jour'nal Stuermer, while the newspa-
per Judenkenner, its rival in bitter
diatribes against Hebrews, openly
urged the death penalty for Jews.

In Western Amateur
COLORADO SPRINGS, July 18. -
UP) - Some of the nation's best golf-
ers who play for fun will level their
sights July 16-21 on the red mountain
that Zebulon Montgomery Pike tried
to climb in 1806 and couldn't.
Pike's Peak towers high above the
diverting Broadmoor course, scene of
the 36th annual Western amateur
championship, and on the first hole a
straight tee shot makes a beeline for
Colorado's most famous mountain.
But it is not likely many of the
contestants will have much time or
attention, until the last putt drops, to
give to the surrounding scenery, in-
viting though it is.
The Broadmoor layout unfolds a
knotty problem for the best of sharp-
shooters. It is somewhat shorter than
most championship courses, measur-
ing 6,445 yards from the back tees,
but peril lurks in its rolling, wavy
terrain for the golf ball inclined to
stray. Par is 70 - 35 each way.
While the fairways are generous
enough on most holes, they have de-
ceptive slopes which are apt to make
a ball "kick" into rough of sufficient-
ly perverse nature to test the most

LONDON, July 18. - (R') - Mus-
solini's heralded "cultural" campaign
against Ethiopia wakes only scorn in
that ancient black empire.
Archaic customs and an atmos-
phere of medieval times may exist
there, but intelligence, fierce courage
and pride amounting to haughtiness
mark the distinction between the sub-
jects of Emperor Haile Selassie and
the rest of Africa's teeming millions.
If "culture" means the frenzy for
modern conveniences, then Abyssinia
is far off the mark. Hardworking
and frugal, the Ethiopian is happy
as long as he is left alone. An ankle-
length shirt is his wardrobe, and in
his thatched hut he dines on bread
dipped in a great family bowl of
"dripping" left over from the last
feast day when a sheep was killed. He
washes it down with home-brewed
Salt For Money
Coins minted in 1780 are circulated
in Addis Ababa, but barter is the pre-
valent means of exchange. In some
provinces, salt is the only "currency."
The family exchequer is a foot-long
bar of salt, and from it enough is
chipped off daily to supply the house-
Feudal barons still rule the marches
from their fortified castles, going
forth from time to time to mete out
rough justice. The law is simple.
When an offense is committed, it is
left to the injured party to.seize the
culprit and bring him to justice.
Every town has its Tyburn, wlhere
malefactors swing in chains. Debtors

Western methods -=notably in the
