FOUND â€” King Solomon’s Gold Mines
THE SECRET OF WAR-TORN ETHIOPIA
by JAMES NEVIN MILLER
COUNT BYRON DE PROROK, famous explorer, is again back in the United States after a series of adventures that would make an Arabian Nights fable seem weak and colorless in comparison. He was successful in locating the exact spot where the legendary King Solomon of Biblical fame once mined fabulous tons of gold.
More important, and perhaps the reason for the Italian hosts pushing their way into Ethiopia, these ancient mines are being worked today on a scale that staggers the imagination. From a volcanic mountain top, de Prorok beheld countless slaves, both men and women, toiling night and day to uncover the heavy golden nuggets.

New “ticker” for tanks
For a dependable tank “heart” â€” 500 horsepower’s worth of rugged air-cooled engineâ€”U. S. Army Ordnance looks to Lycoming’s precision production.
