"It must be admitted," said Pro-
fessor Curtis in conclusion, "that if
these markings really exist, there
seems to be no escape from the con-
clusion that they were constructed
by intelligent beings; they are too
straight and too artificial to be the
result of chance. Nearly all the
I books written on the subject repre-
sent the hypothetical Martians as far
superior to us human beings."

Only the flment is metal in niw

Base of the lamp, formerly made
of metal parts to fit into the socket,
is now built of tough, pressed "piej

Besides the filament, the only
metal parts are two copper tips which
slip into the socket.

Rates I vestigated
By City Of Detroit
LANSING, Mich ,Nov. 11.-
(Mins)-Charging that the Michigan,
Public Utility Commission has acted
as a "rubber stamp" for the Detroit
Edison Company, and that that com-
pany's president has dictated rate
schedules for thirty years, the City of
Detroit has filed briefs here demand-
ing immediate reduction of all rates
and an aprisa of the Edison plant
for the purpose of obtaining reliable
data for rate making.
The electric power rates which the
city's attorneys claim are regularly
set by Alex Dow, the Edison presi-
dent, and accepted by the Comiiis-
sion without exception, have been
set by him without regard for "any
of the legal methods laid down for
rate-making purposes," according to
the petition.
Testimony as to lowered operating
costs already heard by the Commis-
sion justifies, the petition holds, the
demand for downward revision of
