Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - March 28, 1936, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia abyssinian tribes United consular reports ill based setback for Mussolini few rebels London. Saturday. From the tog of uncertainty sur rounding the abyssinian War one fact emerges namely that Signor Mussolini has been completely deceived by Bis local advisers about the extent of National feeling among the tribes Days the Man Chester guardian s correspondent at Barar the ethiopian base in the Ogaden. It is apparent that there is not Likely to be serious defection on the Abys sinian Side. The italians have not created a Good impression As fighters among a people who rate courage As the highest virtue. The Only recent movement has been the desertion to the abyssinian Side of eritrean native soldiers who perhaps tired of being in the forefront of the Battles. Italy s intentions in Abyssinia hav been obvious for years. Her Consu lates scattered throughout the country Ere centres of intrigue. They gave Signor Mussolini the impression that Abyssinia was a land of chaos. Consequently the italians never believed they would have to fight for it they thought they would be Able to Advance gradually leaving any vulgar scrapping against the Savages to their own Black troops and graciously accepting the submission of disaffected chiefs. Racial feeling has Gugsa certainly submitted at the beginning of hostilities but that was the last important surrender and his opposition to the emperor was Only a family affair violent racial feeling was aroused by the italian attacks. Even the antagonism of the priests and monks for Merly part of the conservative bloc which opposed the emperor s innovations regarding education has now been submerged by common hatred of the invaders. Similarly the moslem comprising one third of the population and for Merly the emperor s most difficult problem have not the faintest wish to become italian subjects. They have supplied a Large quota of recruits. Many rumours have been current re Garding quarrels Between the ruling amhara i and the Gallias. These quarrels were partly responsible for Ras Desta s defeat in the South which has been the abyssinians most serious re verse. But an equally reasonable explanation is that bad generalship led a Large poorly armed Force Over the Flat country near Dolo where the italian tanks and machine guns were Able to operate effectively. The general impression is that the italian invasion is welding Abyssinia into a cation adds the correspondent abyssinian cavalry moving up to Harar in the Ogaden to meet the expected italian Advance on the Southern front.

The kingly Way chinese classics have been brought Back to the school curriculum and new groups for the promotion of old ideas Are encouraged under the heading Wang Taoism or the kingly Way but no propaganda lessens the hatred that the masses feel towards Japan. They blame Japan for their economic i sufferings. The unrestricted Sale of narcotics is the noticeable change since 1931. There Are invariably 20 to 0 shops j in each town Selling morphine and heroin in Small doses. The effect on the life of the population is devastate i ing.
