Andrews Thrills Hearers With
Tales Of Asiatic Explorations

Thrilling his hearers with a first-
hand description of his expedition in-

Roy Chapman Andrews, famous ex-
plorer and naturalist, in his lecture
last night in Hill auditorium conjur-
edup a vision of millions of years
ago and of the life that existed on
earth at that time. His subject was
"Searching for the Prehistoric Man."
Carrying his listeners from the very
start of his journey with a descript-
ion of the vast equipment employed,I

Mongolia, according to the eminent
naturalist, presents two great diffi-
culties to explorers. First, its prob-
lem of transportation; second, the
weather. As one of Mr. Andrews' as-
sociates phrased it, "It is winter in
jMongolia 11 months of the year and
late autumn for one month." The
temperature often hovers around 40
below zero.
"Despite the fact that we were
I warned that no fossils would ever be
found in inner Mongolia," said Mr.
Andrews, "We finally opened up the
largest and richest fossil fields in the
entire world.
"Perhaps the most spectacular of
our discoveries was that of the giant
baluchithenium, the largest mammal
that ever appeared on the earth, so
far as present investigations reveal."
Mr. Andrews then gave his hearers
a few of the details of fossil gather-
ing. "In the first place," he said,
"you can't find fossils in vulcanite
rock. Sedimentary rocks are needed.
"These animals become covered by
a sedimentary layer of mineral matter.
Gradually this mineral matter takes
the place of the animal tissue of the
bones, resulting in petrification."

Mortimer Summoned by Committee
Seeking Facts in Attorney-

Washington, D. C., March 11-(By A.
P.)-Exploration into new fields of
testimony for development of the in-!
estigation of Attorney-General Dau-
gherty were made today by the spe-i
cial senate committee.
Among the new finds were said to-
kbe the veteran's bureau case, and al- I
so reports of stock market situations
to high government officials. Atten-i
tion which was attracted toward the.
former was vindicated by the issu-
iance of a subpoena for Elias H. Mor-

eau case before the senate ii1'estigat

drty investigating committee declined,
to indicate the nature of the testimony
accepted from Mr. Morlimer.
That reported stock market deals
of officials were also to come before
the committee, was told by Senator
Brookhart, Republican, Iowa, chair-
man of the Daugherty committee. He
said the committee had hoped to re-
'ceive letters from informants sug-
gesting courses which might disclose
stock gambling by high officials.
"These leads will be followed," said
Senator Brookhart, fand we expect to
receive evidence that will establish I
such dealings."
Prof. William A. Frayer of the his-
tory department will give a lecture on

paid up life insurance policies in the
hands of the Veteran's bureau rather!
than private concerns, was reached to-
day by a sub-committee of the housec
ways and means committee, who are
drafting the bill..
While no decision was reached as
to the form of these insurance poli-'
cies, or the basis on which they should
be drafted, special attention was di-
rected by Senators Blanchard, New.t
Jersey, Andrews, Massachusetts, and
Fish, New York,:and these provide for'
the endowments to run from forty to
fifty years. Two of the schemes would.
base the value of' the policies on the(
adjusted service credit provided in the
bill passed last session--$1 a day for
home service and $1.25 for overseas1
service, plus 25 percent credit. Mr.
Fish suggested policies valued at $400
for each six months service with a
maximum of $1,600.

Clamor In Vain'
Those blood-curdling cat-calls,
stamping feet, and determined hoots
that greeted a badly projected film n
a. local picture house Monday night'
were all in vain, the manager reveal-
ed to a representative of The Daily.
For a moment the interesting thread
of the tale was broken when a section
of the lower half of the picture ap-
peared on the top of the screen, during
the performance Monday night. There
was an immediate uproar with shout-
ed demands to the operators to fix
the film. In a second the picture ap-
peared righted on the screen.
But this was not due to their noise,
the manager asserted, as the operat-
ors work within a 4-inch reenforced
concrete room through which absol-
utely no outside sound will penetrate.
The way they detect such difficulties
is generally by the sound of the film
in the machine, as they are generally
to busy winding up old film to watch
the screen.
They can also be reached, he told
the reporter, from out in front in the
box-office by means of a telephone
"Some students will be a little sur-
prised," he said, "when they hear that
all their efforts have absolutely no
effect on the men at the machines,"

Telegram Mystery Explained-
Senator Lenroot's letter of resigna-
tion was made public after the inves-
tigation had cleared up the remain-
ing mystery of the celebrated McLean
telegram by a grilling cross examin-
ation of John F. Major, one of the
agents of the Washington publisher.
Before questioning Major for the third
time the committee examined in sec-
ret session another batch, of tele-
grams including those from Three
Rivers, N. M., home town of Albert B.
Fall, former secrtar of the interior
and author of the oil leases. Commit-
teemen said the new messages
threw little light on the oil ques-
tion, although some of them "might
be relavent."
Senator Jenroot's retirement from
the committee was not wholly unex-
pected as he gave warning of it 'in
the senate two weeks ago during a
debate in which he came under at-
tack from the Democratic side fo si-

At that time 'Senator benroot told
the senate he' would be" glad to 'be
relieved of the duty of chairmin and
declared that if the ivestigation con-
tinued indefinitely he would have to
ask to be relieved., His health at that
time was poor and a short time after-
wards he went to Southern Pine for
a rest.
Southern Pine, N. C., Mar. 1-(By
A.P.)-Senator Lenroot, of Wiscon-
sin, confirmed late today dispatches
from Washington that he had resign-
ed as chairman' and member of the
public land committee which is con-
ducting the .oil inquiry.
Senator Lenroot had impressed up-
on him the necessity of "being very
quiet", and refraining from official du-
ties which might bring serious 'con-
sequence to himself. "My condition
is not serious," the senator said.
He declared his condition had shown
"considerable. improvement" since he'
came here. "I want to go back 'to
Washington the first of next week but
I will not know whether that will be
permitted by my .physicians until Sat-

In spealcing of the Fair yesterday ?
John D. Briscoe, '24E, general chair-
man, expressed his thanks to all of the
fraternities and groups that had aid-
ed in conducting the affair. "It was
only through the work of the mem-
bers of these groups that the Fair was
what it was," he said. "The attractive-
ness of the sideshows sand concessions
made the undertaking a real fair."
Thomas Lynch, '25L, president of
the Union, said also that in his opin-
ion the Fair accomplished its greatest
good in bringing the students togeth-
er. "Although we did not have the
number of students that we wished
present," he stated, "We did have sev-
eral thousand. It is the one time this'
year that they have had a chance to
be together with the exception of the
football games, and this offers an even
better opportunity."
The Classified Column is three
times as large this year as it was
