Stress upon the importance of the
discovery of the tomb of King Tut-
Ankh-Amen should be emphasized for
the light it has thrown upon the his-
torical, religious and artistic facts of
the period in which he lived, accord-
ing to M. Alexandre Moret, professor
of the "College de France" in his illus-
trated lecture on "Sepulchre de Tout-
ankhamon" yesterday.
History Related
Since this has been unearthed in the
Valley of the Kings it is known fromj
the documents found that Amenophis
LV, the father of Tut-Ankh-Amen and
founder of the 15th dynasty of kings,
attempted to instill new ideas into the
minds of his people and new practices
into their daily life.
This, however, was only effective
during his reign and that of his son
and successor, Tut-Ankh-Amen.
The latter was persecuted unmerci-
fully by his religious enemies, his pal-
ace was looted of its most precious
possessions, and the capital moved
back to Thebes. Thus it can not be
ascertained definitely whether this is
in reality the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amen
or merely his store-house.
The interest which the unearthing
of this tomb aroused was in no way
warranted from the point of view of
those who thought it a new enterprise,
but is exceptional and extraordinary
only when regarded as enlightening
the present generations on the his-
tory of the Egypt of his dynasty, M.
Moret said.
Early Discoveries Made
Discoveries of some of these tombs
z were made as early as 1500 to 1000 B.
C. and in 950 B. C. they were known
in a general way. Between 1875 and
1895 mummies and furniture were
found in the valley of Kings by a
Frenchman but the work was sus-
pended on account of earthquakes and
a phortage of money.
Theodore Davis, an American, furn-~
ished money between 1903 for the
continuation of the work, found Am-
enophis 4th and believed that the
treasures of the Valley of Kings had
been exhausted, Lord Ca'navan how-
ever, proceeded with the excavating
and in 1922 came upon the tomb and
mummy of King Tut-Ankh-Amen,
which, Professor Moret said, is but a
logical sequence to the former search.
?HIe gave much credit to the work of
k Howard Carter and his American as-
sociates, as well as to the aforemen-
a mtioned men.
M. Moret is an authority on Egypt-
ology and internationally known for
his interest in and books on the sub-

tLile complaints are recognized.

Professor William H. Hobbs of the

that he would petition the central com-
mittee on discipline to remit the pro-
bation inflicted upon a student for un-
becoming conduct in a session on Oct.
18. He will take this action, he said,
because the committee was unanimous
in acqultting the student of the charge
which he had preferred against him
although he had been found guilty of
unbecoming condut.
He further stated that, he believed
that if certain "mitigating circum-
stances" which modified the penalty
imposed, were warranted, that he
could not regard the student's con-
duct as unbecoming but rather as de-
serving of commendation for consid-
erable forbearrance under provocation
