Lecturer Resided In Luxor as Inspee,
for of Antiquities for
Many Years
Arthur Weigall, noted Egyptologist
author and lecturer, will speak at F
o'clock tonight in Hill auditorium on

Is X-Ray Artist
Speaking of Mr. Weigal in referring
to his books on Egypt the late Theo-
dore Roosevelt once said, "He has
that supreme quality of seeing through
the dry bones of the mummy and then I
making others see too."
In 1905 Mr. Weigall was appointed
by Lord Cromer to the position of In-
spector General of Antiquities of Eg-
ypt with official residence at Luxor
He held this post until 1914 when he.
had to resign because of overwork
Returning to England, he wrote sev-
eral books on Egyptian history which
are said to throw new light on the
Pharoahs' times. They are said tr.
have aroused a great interest in Egyp-
tion affairs even before the recent ex-
cavations which.have revealed the vast
treasures tat have contributed so
much to scientific research and the
history of that period.j
On the finding of the tomb of Tut-
ankhamen Mr. Weigall journeyed tc
Egypt as special correspondent for
the London Daily 'Mail and the North
American newspaper alliance and hiI
articles appeared in. many of the lead-
in. nowspaper. of this nntry.. r-'
cause of his former high position in
the Egyptian government, he was pres-
ent at the opening of the tomb and
privileged to enter it.
Noted Author
Although not one of the actual ex-'
cavators Mr. Weigall was regarded as
so great an authority on this entire
period that it was he who was after-
wards commissioned to reconstruct the
tomb of Tutankhamen for the British
Empire exhibition to be held next
summer. .
Mr. Weigall is the author of quite a
number of books on Egypt some of
which are "The Life and Times of
Aknaton, Pharoai of Egypt", "The
Glory of the Pharoahs", and "The
Treasury of Ancient Egypt". He is al-
so the writer of several novels, among
the most popular being "Burning

Declares England Must Play Greater
Part in Restoration of Normal
Life of Europe
London, Jan. 15-(By A.P.)-The
session of the new triangular parlia-
ment which is a novel and compicat.
ed experiment in British political his-
tory did much to clear away the cloud
of doubt which has overhung it. For
the first time In history the house of
Commons listened attentively to the
pronouncement of a labor leader while
the heads of the two older parties
could only be rated among those whc
also spoke.
J. Ramsey McDonald on the aims of
labor, and whatever gleams of light
he cast upon his party's policies was
the important feature of the day. Dav-
id Lloyd George spoke for the liber-
als because Mr. Asquith has not yet
recovered from his illness although he
was able to appear in the house and
seconded Mr. MacDonald's criticism of
the conservative government which is
about to retire but the former pre-
mier did so with little of his old time
spirit while Premier Bald/in made
the best defense lie could on behalf
of his government.
Foreign affairs monopolized a
great part of the speech. He declared
that Great Britain must play a great-
er part than she had been doing for
restoration of the normal life of Eur-
ope, but did not explain how this was
to be done.
So far as the policies of the extrem-
ist element of his party were con-
cerned he was silent, but he denied
that labor cherished any secret inten-
tions which had been accredited tc
that party.
Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 15.-Declaring "1
