Photography and Distant Views

The Saint Bernard Monks are reported to be making progress with their plans for a branch establishment on the Sila Pass on the border between Tibet and Szechuan. The group which went out in January, 1933, reported favorably on the project. The actual work of construction is expected to start this spring, although they have received a setback in the news that the Tibetan priest whom they had taught to act as a ski teacher to the natives has been assassinated.
