Frederic Clemson Howe (November 21, 1867 – August 3, 1940) was a member of the Ohio Senate, a dedicated yet flexible Georgist,[1] Commissioner of Immigration of the Port of New York, and published author. He was also president of the League for Small and Subject Nationalities.[2]
He received a bachelor’s degree from Allegheny College in 1889 and a Ph.D from Johns Hopkins University in 1892. In 1901, he was elected to Cleveland City Council, Ohio as a Republican. During his tenure, he became a key advisor to Tom L. Johnson, mayor of Cleveland at that time. He ran for reelection as an independent, but lost. In 1904, he married Marie Jenney. He studied law at Miami University in Ohio.
In 1919, Howe was targeted during a bombing spree, but was unharmed.[3]
On 27 July 1933, George N. Peek, head of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration appointed Howe as the head of the Consumers’ Counsel.[4] Howe was associated with other left-wing members of the Roosevelt administration.
Rexford Tugwell claimed that Howe was “the subject of vitriolic attacks by the business interests” and was “pictured as a Red”.[5] Chester R. Davis now decided to get rid of Howe. He later recalled: “Fred Howe was a man of high ideals and very practical sense. He was the ‘turn the other cheek’ type. He was a well-meaning man who permitted his organization to be loaded down with a group of people who were more concerned with stirring up discontent than they were with achieving the objectives of the act.” [6]
Frederic Clemson Howe is buried in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

The Kingdom of Gumma was one of the kingdoms in the Gibe region of Ethiopia that emerged in the 18th century. Its eastern border was formed by the bend of the Didessa River, which separated it from (proceeding downstream to upstream) Limmu-Ennarea to the northeast, and the kingdoms of Gomma and Gera to the south. Beyond its northern border were various Macha Oromo groups, and to the west Sidamo groups. Its territory corresponds approximately with the modern woredas of Gechi and Didessa.
This former kingdom was mostly located on a plateau with an average elevation of 6500 feet, and had a population estimated in 1880 of about 50,000. Its inhabitants had a reputation as warriors.[1] Beckingham and Huntingford considered Gumma, along with Gomma, was the least economically developed of the Gibe kingdoms; however Mohamed Hassen notes that, with the exception of the northern and western boundaries where constant raiding by her neighbors, the Arjo in the north and the Nonno in the west, forced those living in those parts to embrace pastoralism, the land was intensively farmed and grew many of the same crops as the other Gibe kingdoms — sorghum, wheat, barley and cotton — except for coffee.[2]
History[edit]
The latest kings of Gumma traced their origin to a man called Adam. Around 1770, he came to live in the area, and is said to have then helped in the deposition of the last king of the previous dynasty, Sarborada. The historian Mohammed Hassen, in discussing this tradition, suggests this tradition about Adam “was invented so as to Islamize the original founder of the dynasty.”[3]
King Jawe was converted to Islam by merchants from Shewa and Begemder, and in turn he imposed his religious faith upon his subjects.[4]
In 1882, King Abba Jubir of Gumma convinced the kings of Ennerea, Gomma and Jimma to form a confederacy known as the “Muslim League”, to counter the threat from some of the Macha Oromo, who in turn formed their own alliance, the “League of the Four Oromo”. At first the Muslim League had little success against this threat, for the other members did not support Abba Jubir against the Macha, until his eld

These small shrubs are native to the high Andes of Peru. The Junin Province is a region of Peru that grows hercampuri.

Richard Withers

Brother Richard Scott Withers (born 1955) is an American consecrated hermit. In 1974, Withers converted to Catholicism and was baptized; shortly after, he started to live a religious life. In 1989, Withers and Sister Margaret McKenna moved to inner city Philadelphia and founded New Jerusalem Laura, a drug treatment center. Withers petitioned the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to become a consecrated hermit several times but was rejected. In 2001, Withers was consecrated as a hermit by Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, the Archbishop of Philadelphia. He was the first hermit to be consecrated in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Withers lives in a hermitage, a converted rowhouse, in the city of Philadelphia where he spends most of his time in prayer.

Early life[edit]
Withers was born in California’s San Fernando Valley. He had seven siblings and his father was a mechanical engineer. Neither of his parents were practicing Catholics during his childhood. His father had been raised Catholic but then “lapsed”.[1] Instead, he was raised culturally Jewish according to the faith of his mother.[2] When Withers was eight, his family moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey. In 1974, he had an encounter with a group of Catholic activists at the bicycle repair shop where he worked, which caused him to convert to Catholicism and be baptized. The same year, Withers left home for nearby Camden, New Jersey, to live in and repair abandoned row houses.[3]
Religious life[edit]
After his baptism, Withers lived in a loosely affiliated religious community. While there, Withers almost got married but decided that he wanted to live a religious life instead.[4] In 1984, he took private vows of “poverty, chastity, and obedience” and became a hermit. Before taking his vows, Withers had looked into several religious orders, but he could not find one that he felt compatible with.[1] Passionate about the spirituality of the Desert Fathers, he and Sister Margaret McKenna debated about “Where is the desert today?”[5] Deciding it was in the abandoned inner cities, in 1989 they moved into an abandoned row house that they began restoring, continuing their work even when their tools were regularly stolen by drug addicts.[5] There, they founded New Jerusalem Laura, a treatment center for drug addicts.[6]
Two years later, in 1991, Withers bought a derelict rowhouse from the city of Philadelphia
