Luxor, Egypt, Jan. 3.-(By AP)-
Today was marked by excitement and
thrills, at the tomb of Tutenkhamen in
the Valley of the Kings, for Howard
Carter, having at last removed the
curious pall rack that obstructed the
entrance to the door of the second
shrin, decided that the time had ar-
rived for penetrating further the sec-
rets of the Royal tomb.,
Mr. Carter, and Mr. Callender, of
his staff had spent some two hours
yesterday in easing the wooden bolts
of the gilded doors of the sacred
shrine, bearing delicate figures in
light relief of the pharaoh at worship
and shortly before noon today the
doors were carefully swung back.
The powerful arc lights which had
been swung into position to illumin-
ate the massive doors of the second
casket then shone upon a third gold-
en shrine, richly covered with hier-
oglyphics, the doors of which bore
the figure of a God with the head of
an animal-either zebra or horse-
with the Goddess Hathor standing be-
The gilded doors of the third shrine
were then unbolted and there is reas-
on to believe that another case was
discovered within. It it understood
today's operations were purely in the
nature of a. reconnaissance and that
nothing was removed from thej
shrines., Mr. Carter's official photo-'
grapher made records of the differ-
ent stakes of today's proceedings.

"Modern Stadia" an article by Maj-
or John L. Griffith, director of West-!
ern Conference athletics, dealing with
the great football stadiums in the
country today is the leading feature'
of this month's Athletic Journal.
Speaking of the 'many immense ovals
that have sprung upin all parts of
the coi7try to accomodate the thous-1
ands who are now flocking to inter-_
collegiate encounters Major Griffith
says: "The last five years has been
a period of exceptional stadium con-
struction in the schools and univer-
"Before the war many institutions
boasted of athletic fields with wood-
en stands for the spectators and a
'ew concrete stalls, but today nearly
every university has a modern stad-
ium. Many of these structures haves
been built so that they will last for
a century."
"The chief purpose of building theseI
playing fields on an elaborate scale
is that the increased interest in ath-
letics, especially in football, has creat-
ed a demand for stands that will be
ample to provide seats for the stu-
ents, alumni an the general public
who may esire to see the game be-I
tween rival colleges."
Major Griffith then takes up thet
question of whether the stadiums are
being built on too vast a scale or not.
He believes not and feels that the
game will continue too increase in
popularity in the future. Also he
says that stadiums are now being
built to provide for running tracks,
basketball courts, handball rooms and
gymnasium facilities in the area unr
der the seats, which makes them of
more general use.

"There are now more than 1,000
stocks listed on exchange instead of
about 250 as there were years ago.
These are increasing steadily,' said

that more men who have served their

buy seats."
Mr. Somers declared the first req

._ Building
a .Picure"

' - _.

HERE the architects envisioned a picture, saw the modern 'office
building in terms of the great art of the Middle Ages-and the
result is a demonstration that the utilitarian structure, the modern office
building of commerce may be as picturesque as it is practical. Vision,
imagination, courage and practical ingenuity in stylistc'sadaptaion
have enabled the architects of this countryto astonish the world with
their achievements of today and their promise of tomorrow.
Certainly modern invenion-modern engineering ski and organiza-
tion, will prove more than equal to the demands of the architecture
of the future.
