J Ethiopian Mission Will Go To Japan ;i-; _ [Purpose of-Party Kept Buys Five Foreign Liners to Transport- Troops to East Africa ADDIS ABABA, Aug. Governmental plans for an Ethi- opian mlision to Japan, to leave Addis Ababa soon, were disclosed day. The mission, it.was said, by an authority, is to be headed by Daba Blrrou, former official of the for- eign office. The purpose of the Ethiopian party will be kept a close secret. Birrou Is experienced In diplo- matic negotiations with the Japa- nese. He accompanied the first Eth- iopian mission to Japan in 1932. That delegation WBS headed by Foreign Minister Herouy who re- turned the visit of .the Japanese delegation to the coronation of Em- peror Halle Selassie. (In recent days, rumors have been heard in Ethiopia, but officially de- nied, that a Japanese mission was on its way to the Ethiopian capital.) The German legation scoffed at rumors that Gen. Hans Kunrtt, for- mer commander of the Bolivian army, was In Ethiopia. He described it as another "Invented story" like recent fantastic tales that Lawrenci of Arabia was still alive and had appeared on the borders of Kenya. (The Bolivian legation in Berlin stated jjiat General Kundt Is stil living in Bolivia, although born German, he has become a natural- ized Bolivian.) Emperor Halle Selassie mean while, has refused permission to his warriors to foregather In the vicin- ity of Adua, where an Italian ex- pedition was crushed 40 years ago. Authoritative sources expressed belief today that the King of Kings realizing Adua probably would be Italy's first goal, may decide not to defend it forcefully, but to use puni- tive surprise tactics elsewhere. This belief was based on reports that Halle Selassie discussed with See ETHIOPIA, Page t, Col. 2 NAZI BAN ON FREEMASONS All Lodges In Reich Told to Disband By Saturday BERLIN, Aug. uehrer Adolf Hitler's newspaper Voelkischer Beobachter, announcet oday that all P'ee Mason lodges ;hroughout the Reich would come to an end Saturday.
