Research Team Seeks Remains
of Noah's Ark on Mt. Ararat

SAN DIEGO — A Baptist
research organization report-
ed that it had received
"quasiofficial approval" to
scale Mt. Ararat in Turkey
to search for remnants of
Noah's Ark believed to be
embedded in the snow-
covered mountain.
The Baptist Church-spon-
sored Institute for Creation
Research here plans to send
an eight-man expedition to
find timbers and some struc-
tural portions of the biblical
ship preserved in the ice and
snow near the 14,500-foot
level on the northeast side
of the mountain.
Mt. Ararat lies in a highly
militarized zone in eastern
Turkey, between the Black
Sea and the Caspian, near
the borders of the Soviet
Union and Iran, and foreign-
ers are rarely permitted in
the area.
According to the Bible, all
of the people of the world are
descendants of Noah and his
family, believed to be the
only survivors of the great
Although the "universal-
ity" of the flood—its scope—
has been under theological
debate, Dr. Henry Morris.
president of the institute, and
his son, both of whom will
join the expedition, literally
accept the words of Genesis
7:19 that "the waters pre-
vailed exceedingly upon the
earth, and all the high moun-
tains that were under the
whole heaven were covered."
Most Christians believe that
the flood was universal.
However, conservatives in
the clergy believe that the

flood only affected a small
part of the world.
Dr. Bernard L. Ramm of
the Baptist Seminary of the
West in Covina, Calif., ad-
vised caution in reading the
words "all" and "whole".
He said that Mesopotamians
had no concept of the world
beyond their own and were
unaware of other continents
and peoples.
Dr. Ramm- also said it was
improbable to care for and
feed so many animals for
such a long time, and that
there was still a mystery as
to what became of the flood
"If all the globe was under
nearly six miles of water, it
would had no place to drain
off." he said.
The Morrises contend that
through a miracle of God the
water drained off with the
help of high winds, submerg-
ing forever great land masses
and opening up the oceans
making them deeper and
broader than before.

Pravda Writer Hits
Jackson and Meany

NEW YORK— The Wash-
ington correspondent f o r
Pravda, the Soviet Commun-
ist party newspaper, wrote
that although Sen. Henry M.
Jackson was a "polite gen-
tleman," he is "an anti-Soviet
and friend of the Zionists."
Sergei Vishnevsky, who
told his readers that Sen.
Jackson may run for the
Presidency in 1976, said that
Sen. Jackson was backed by
"a sinister coalition of mili-
tary manufacturers, Penta-
gon hawks, Zionists and
trade union bureaucrats."
Vishnevsky also criticized
George Meany, president of
the AFL-CIO, calling him a
supporter of Sen. Jackson
and "an ardent anti-Commu-
nist obscurantist."

U. S. Sympathetic

poll commissioned by CBS
News indicates that more
Americans sympathize with
Israel than with the Arabs
and believe that the United
States should apply little or
no pressure on Israel to re-
linquish Arab territories tak-
en in the 1967 war.
The results of the poll, con-
ducted by Opinion Research
Corp. of Princeton, N. J. in a
national sample of 1,231 peo-
ple of voting age, were broad-
..cast on the Columbia Broad-
casting System's television
program "60 Minutes".
Moderator Mike Wallace
said that 38 per cent of those
polled had expressed sym-
pathy for Israel compared
with 7 per cent for the Arabs.

Arab Propagandist
on U.S. 'Mission'

—Dr. Clovis Maksoud, the
Arab League's envoy who ar-
rived in the U.S. last week

point to the American pub-

ence here that Syria will not

come to rely on Tamaroff Buick. And they have come to trust the Tamaroff
