Search for Further Caches Pressed
by Workmen; Skeleton
of Child Unearthed
Traces of a ninteeenth century mys-
tery were revealed yesterday when
the discovery of a chest full of gold
pieces, probably of a value approach-
ing $100,000, and the skeleton of a
newly-born baby was made known by
Adrian Leever and son, wreckers, en-
gaged in tearing down an old house at
332 E. Williams street. The discovery!
was made last week.
The gold, which was in the form of
United States specie, was contained
in a sheet metal box and concealed in
a pocket of a second floor partition
The pocket was constructed just large
enough to hold the treasure chest
showing that it was cut in only after
deliberate and careful thought in prep-I
aration. Papers found with, the ches4

Andrews Sees More Interest
In Questions Of Evolutionj

"The next ten years will see a mark-
ed change in the attitude of the human
race toward the study of evolution and
historical geology," said Roy Chapman
Andrews, prominent explorer and
scientists, yesterday in an interview.)
"People are beginning to demandI
facts about their origin, and the
theories advanced by religion will no
longer satisfy them. Of course the
only means of compiling these facts
is through scientific research, but
this research not only provides us
with a view of what had happened inI
the past, but also gives us good groundI
on which to base prediction as to fut-1
ure tendencies of animal life and earth
movements and changes."
"There is an economic value to geo-
logy, of course," Mr. Andrews went
on, "But the aesthetic side, while it isI
seldom called that, has kept manyf
people from making a study of thel
subject. A study of geology, however!
slight will give a man a greater pleas-
ure in observing things about him,
but it has a large-r value than that.
It will permit him an understanding

f of existing conditions of animal life
and give him the knowledge necessary
to predict to his own satisfaction the
future of species."
"With man living at the prodigious
pace which he is today, it is hard to
say what he may be coming to," Mr.
Andrews said in answer to a question.
The matter seemed to strike him as'
amusing, and he went on, "If I could-
n't get out on the expeditions and
live like a white man for a while, I
could never stand it. Do you know
that when I left for this last trip, radio
was an unknown thing, and I had my
first experience with it after my re-
turn. Just in three years, I can see an
amazing difference in this country."
In regard to courses of instruction
in American universities, Mr. An-
drews said that in most cases he con-
sidered all courses to be of great value
despite their comparative practical
values. The cultural advantages fie-
rived from many courses of no im-
mediate practical value more than
outweighs their lack of intrinsic

Lawrence, Kansas, March. 12.-"Doc-
tor Burton is too much of a utilitar-
ian in his choice of the four greatest
men of the Twentieth century," de
clared the University Daily Kansan
student newspaper of the University of
r Kansas, in criticizing President Burt-
on's choice of Roosevelt, Ford, Edi-
son, and Wright, as the four men who,
have most greatly benefited humanity,
in modern times.
The Kansas paper criticized the fact
that President Burton failed to name!
an author, painter, sculptor, or archi-
tect in the number, adding that with
the exception of Roosevelt, the men
named have all been concerned with
industrial development. The editorial
declared that the choice of a- states-
man, and three contributors to in-
dustrial progress plainly showed the
nation's trend toward the material in-
stead of the spiritual.
The choice of Murray Bartlett, chan-
cellor of Hobart College, was con-
trasted favorably with that 'of Presi-
dent Burton in the columns of the
Daily Kansan. The men chosen by
him were Woodrow Wilson, Cardinal!
Mercier, Nickolai Lenine, and Mahatma
