    Carlsbad in the midth of the spa seasons.

    It is a spa with a colorful history, well known and famous in all the world.

    Thousands of its inhabitants as well as the quests who are talking their cure or holiday here, have before noon assembled at the ceremoniously decorated colonnade to bid welcome to the Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie I. The inhabitants of Carlsbad have decorated the whole town to pay tribute to this distinguished visitor. Soon after 12 o'clock His Excellency, the Emperor, and the members of his suite have arrived at the colonnade. The dear guest was in the company of the deputy premier Vaclav Kopecky and of other political and public officials. The ministry of health dr Joseph Plojhar has officially welcome the Emperor of Ethiopia.

    In his short reply the Emperor has expressed his thanks for the cordial welcome. He also expressed his delight to visit a town he had long wished to see and learn to know.

    Children as well as adults have cheerfully greeted the friends from a far off country. The colonnade and the streets were lined with vast crowds of Carlsbad inhabitants and its spa guests.

    In the afternoon the Emperor of Ethiopia and his suite have been welcome by the workers of the national enterprise Carlsbad Glass, in the workshop MOSER. After the welcome speeches by leading workers of the plant the quests have inspected a distinguished collection of unique products that have made Czechoslovak glass workers famous in the whole world. Also in the palace of his Excellency, in his country of Ethiopia, we could find some most beautiful sets of glass - that are the products of Carlsbad workers.

    The Emperor had been explained the history of the plant, its latest achievements, notably on the Universal Exposition in Brussels and he was greatly impressed by the skilful dexterity of Czechoslovak workers, the masters of their craft.
