Italy Fails to
Thus ; Far in Conquest of
! Ethiopia; Gems Scarce
but Oil Hoped for
NEW YORK,-May 14-(p-It Is
iwo years ago mat tne Italians
marched Into Addis Ababa, but
the tasclst legions still have
failed to realize any semrj ance
of the vast wealth in gold, oil
and rare jewels which they hop
ed they would find when Halle
Selassie a kingdom was eonl
quered. ' . 1 ; -
i But they have not abrndoaed
mat nope xor uie Italian gen
eral petroleum board, according
to advices from Addis Ababa, has
just sent Angelo Bianchi, their
crack mining expert Into the
country to direct explorations hot
only for petroleum, but also ifor
gold : and Jewels.
i Financing Is Needrd
Financing for these nlntng ex
plorations is needed by Italy ana
a German concern already Is ac
tive in assisting on one project.
Now that the London-Paris-Rome
axis is progressing in its forma
tive stage, there is the possi
bility that Great Britain and
France "may come In also to as
sist. '-. ' '
I Up to now the only actua! dis-'
cover y. is a lignite field near Ad
dis Ababa, but the Italians are
claiming that there is ol? and
copper near Diredawa and oil at
Lugh and Dolo. 1
, Small findings of gold hate
frequently been made by the
Ethiopians, although the thinness
of their findings might be t'amjed
on the primitive mining method8
used. . . -v I
; Only Jewels Are Fake,
f The writer spent many weeks
In the Diredawa, Lugh and Dolo
sectors while covering the war.
There was little evidence of min
ing, "snd about the only orna
ments the Ethiopians had were a
tew oId and iron; leg arm and
collar bands. Their only jewels
were " inexpensive but colorful
paate or glass which they had
gotten. 4rom Hindu tradera.
f Thsjithloplan region has
beenWatched for years by Albert
Ramsay, New York Jewel expert,
who has made many important
Jewel discoveries in hidden cor
ners of. the globe.
"There may be . diamond and
emeralds In Ethiopia, but I se
serlously doubt that they will find
any sapphires, rubies or other
Jewels," he said. "And only
thorough exploration will tell if
there are diamonds and emer
alds. The chances are that they
can be most optimistic about
gold, for there is already evi
dence that there is at least a
little there."
Britain Quitting
Mexican Capital
(Continued from page 1)
but the country's most pressing
problem one on which many ob
servers believed the fate of the
Cardenas administration rests
remained unsolved.
This problem, briefly, was find
ing a market for the country's
government-produced oil, output
of which has fallen sharply be
cause of lack, of markets since
March 18, when the president ex-
nrooriated British and American
pll properties valued at 3400,000,-
ooo. -
Today the peso slumped from
five to 10 points, although sup
porters of the president believed
the economic turn to have been
counter-balanced by a revival ot
nationalistic fervor in the coun
try after the expropriation.

Deal With Hitler
Becomes Known
While Mussolini was asserting
thst the toasts he exchanged with
Hitler in the Palazzo Venezia last
week were "solemn and definitive
in history." the outcome of the
private conversations was 'becom
ing known.
A high Italian source summed
these up as follows:
1. No new commitments were
made.- - '
2. It was agreed Czechoslova
kia to whose 8.5 00.0 SO German
minority Hitler has declared he
will give "protection- Is Ger
many's affair and Italy neither
will assist nor prevent any nail
action there.
J. Hitler was told, however.
not to precipitate a European war
because Italy could not now say
what her interests would be in
such an eventuality.
4. Mutual regard was given for
each other's political and econom
ic interests In theeDanubian and
Balkan countries.
S. The Italian government's ex
treme satisfaction was expressed
over i the fuehrer's exclusion - of
Italy's German-inhabited South
Tyrol from his plans for a "great
