Well-known Believe It or Not'
Artist to Lecture in Hill
' Auditorium Tonight.
Has Toured 69 Countries in His
earch for Unusual and Says
Man Is Strangest Thing.
3Robert L. Ripley, creator of the
well known "Believe It or Not"
drawings which appear in 220
newspapers throughout the world,
will speak here at 8 o'clock tonighit
iHilauditorium. According to a
telegram received by Henry Moser,
of the speech department, Ripley is
bringing with him a reel of animat-
ed cartoons which' will be an add-
ed feature of his appearance in
An Arbor.
'This modern' Marco Polo gleans'
most of his facts from his world
travel. He has travelled in 69
countries and is 'willing to wager
that there is not one student in the
University who can name even 40
countries without consulting an en-
cyclopedia or map of solve sort.
Calls Man "Strangest Thin,"
,Ihave travelled in 69 cout
tries,' Ripley says, "but the strang-
est thing I have seen is man." "And,
he continuepobably onee ofthe
spots I visited, was Hell."
Thousands of letters arrive each
week denouncing Ripley as the
world's greatest liar and many of
the letters, practically all of them
unsigned, suggest that he enter the
portals of Hades and stay there.
These same writers later repented
when proof of the statements they
had doubted was returned to them,
for Ripley delighlts to be called a
Ripley Goes to 1101.
Finally, when some of his closest
friends intimated that he mit
i aell take a Tong journey to the
land of extrane heat and long-
tailed devils,' Ripley took up his
Iuggage and went directly to hell.
jFor to the Believe It or dot wrtist
whose drawings are read by some
twenty million ' people' daily, Hell
(as this earth knows it) is situated
in the Scandanavia~n Peninsula and
labelled Norway. It is, according
to Ripley, a delightful rural villag.e

surrounded by_ a fertile rollir
3ountry. This fact, which is pro
zble and convincig, is one of 11
favorite "Believe It or No s."
