Birthplace of Maya Culture Sought in Central Ameriea Ancient Indians Had Amazing Civilization WASHINGTON. -- The spot- light of discovery is focusing on the land of the Mayas. It looks as though news of ancient Ameri- Ca's greatest civilization would break there soon. An expedition is already digging ht the very re#on where the most l~lrned students of America's past have l~ointed, as the likely birthplace of the 1Daagnlflcent Mayan ch-llization. And that Is in the highlands of Guatemala, loath of Mexico. Explorers heretofore have unearthed t'~lned cities of the Mayas in Jun- ties of Yucatan and Guatemala. They have revealed these ancient Indians as ~aaster builders, astronomers, mathe- ]~aticlans, and inventors of a writing rYstem. Belated respect is paid the ~ayan calendar. It was more accurate than the calendar of Spain, when' the BPaninrds arrived in America and set about civilizing the benighted savages. Baffling Question. But what has baffled science is to explain when and where so extraordi- ~ary a civilization got its start. 8o, the expedition of the Carnegie ~stitution of Washington, which has launched on a campaign to explore ~Ounds in the highland region, in the tuburbs of Guatemala City, is being closely watched. It was in the hill country, by the gen- Itally accepted theory, that the Mayas 0r their forefathers learned to plant torn. And when they became stable farmers, then their star rose. Find Old Site. At the site chosen for digging, dis- toveries have already been reported by Dr. A. V. Kidder, expedition leader. & Stucco pyramid, three times rebuilt, and tombs containing pottery of great ~terest, are the initial finds. HOW old Will the site turn out to be? Potsherds found at the same site 8O~ae years ago were hesitantly pro- ~Ounced "early." Since then, archaeol- ogists have accumulated more knowl- ~ge for establishing the antiquity of sYan remains, as far back as the his- ~ry has been pushed. The oldest known i aYan city, Uaxactun, goes back to! teverai centuries before Christ. Air Flow Curtain Protects Bridge of Liner Queen Mary LONDON.--The use of aero- dynamics and attention to air flow Will make it possible for officers of the S. S. Queen Mary to stand on the navigating bridge, in open sir, ~ d yet be protected from the weather. Invisible, but no less real, curtain of air helps accomplish the feat. b The forward edge of the navigating f~uge has a solid guard sheet curved UPWard which has, along the upper edge, an additional sheet of metal sep- arated slightly from IL As the ship ~ove~ forward the curved portion ~tches the air and directs It upward ~[OUgh the slot arrangement. fi'hla high-pressure curtain of air ~_ wa uPWard higher than a man's head :~a~ore it ls swept backward.

This answer to the popular question, "How do archeologists decide where to dig?" was brought out at Evanston, IlL, at the meeting of the Central section of the American Anthropological association. Recent American expeditions, led by Dr. Vladlmlr Fewkes, have taken the lay of the land In Yugoslavia. By tramping over the ground north of Greece, where ancient men must have wandered and camped and traded, the pre-historians have studied the impor- tant geographic factors. The Danube river valley was a main highway, a sort of funnel through which traffic took lines of least resistance between the Near East and Europe. Task Is Extensive. Yugoslavia's own scientific Institu- tions are making field explorations, but the task certainly cannot be accom- plished by them alone, Robert McCor- mick Adams of the University of Chi- cago reported to the meeting of an- thropologists. Mr. Adams, who has worked with the American expeditions In Yugo- slavia, told of discoveries which are regarded as a beginning. Only a few traces of Old Stone age man have yet been found In Yugoslavia, though the cave dwellers of that long dark age must have frequented this "highway" country. Stone Age Trace~ The New Stone age Is clearer, from discovery and excavation' of sites where people settled and practiced the new arts of farming, raising domestic animals, making good pottery and building wattle and daub houses. What Yugoslavia was llke in the Bronze and Iron ages has only begun to unfold. It has been estimated, said Mr. Adams, that there are 100,000 Brouze and Iron age tumuli--or mounds-- alone in southern Yugoslavia and Macedonia. May Plan Future Industrial Growth on Geography Basis PHILADELPHIA.~Econ0mic geography is the basis on which the nation might well solve its troubles of the migration of indus- try from one region to another, and resultin nroblem of s stranded the g " 1-i population without employment, sa u ~lbert S. Carlson of Dartmouth col- lege. before the Franklin Institute here recently. Mr. Carlson, Instructor In economic geography, declared : i "As a natlo0 we are Just beginning to recognize the seriousness of the unemployment problem. We are dO- )lying some intelligence to its solu- tion, but only s small modicum of the knowledge and ability available. We are merely beginning when we are able to determine the number and character of those who are permanently dis- placed from the Industries of s par- ticular town. What are we going to do about It? There ere three possi- bilities. We may provide relief for them and allow normal forces to work themselves out as best they may. It Is unthinkable that .we should proceed along this route much longer. What else can we do? We can develop new industries In these towns. Moving Population. When this cannot be done profitably there Is only one other POSSibility. That Is to have responsible agencies sugge.~t other regions where there are better opportunities for the stranded population. We can do this only when we recognize the remarkable possibili- ties for appraisal of present and fu- rore regional trends in the economic- geographic approach to social prob- lems. "We have reached a stage in the evolution of our national life when the results of scientific research must be consciously related to our social life. Modern geograpby offers a most valu- able method for the co-operation of the social and natural sciences In the solv- ing of our most fundamental national problem. Tills problem may be stated as the proper and more rapid correla- tion of all the changing factors oper- ating in e region as science continual: ly evotves new techniques that require new social adjustments." 31.Pound Gold Nugget Found in Ural Mountains MOSCOW.--Studies of the two giant gold nuggets discovered in the Tyelguin mine in the Ura| mountains have now been com. pleted here. Their weights, as finally establlsbed, are 9,420 and 14,318 grams respectively or approxlmamly 21 and 31.5 pounds, The nuggets are quite unique and have a very Interesting structure. Each nugget represents a very fine trans- i}srent net consisting of lamellar, oc- tagonal, needleshaped and wireshaped gold crystals forming concretions.

A,bronze tablet was dedicated Sat- urday, May 2, to the memory of pio- neers who traversed old "Prospect Trail" from Denver to the Clear Creek region in quest of riches. The Daugh. ters of Colorado dedicated the tablet to Prospect Trail and the hardy men who followed it. The tablet was laid on a section of the old trail over which pack trains and grizzled prospectors traveled to the famous mining towns along Clear Creek in the COlorado min- ing boom days. The national park service has trou- ble obtaining sufflcie~t drinking water for Mesa Verde National Park, so the house agpropriatlons committee has approved a $10,000 expenditure for an air-lifting device in the well already dug so that water may be brought to the surface without difficulty. Because the well shaft has a slight lean In its upper 400 feet, water does not rise to the surface, and has to be brought up that distance by use of sucker rods, according to Director A. B. Cammer er of the park service. The orl#nal well cost $86900. , III III I IIIII I I I Simple Lines in This Exclusive Model, Which Is a Perfect Utility Frock ....,.:.:.;.:. i:i:i:i:i:!: i:i:::::::i:::::~:i 42, and 44.
