Two French Explorers Report Finding Lost City Of Queen Of Sheba

A 'Fountain Of Youth' For Rats
Is Found In Bacon's Precepts

E

ITHACA, N. Y., March 12 -(P) -
A fountain of youth and of good
looks which Lord Francis Bacon knew
and described, but which the world
overlooked, has been rediscovered in
the Cornell university laboratory of
anoima l nutrition.
There a colony of a dozen ratsl
lives, more than 1,200 days old, the
equivalent of 120 years of human life.
All were still youthful when rats nor-
mally become senescent. All retained
their fine silky hair, which is rat
equivalent for a baby complexion.
Their unequalled records, all more
than double normal lifetimes, were
due to diet, of the kind which the
Elizabethan scientist urged. Bacon
did not know the formula, which
Cornell worked out, but he had the
principle right.
Wrote Six "Rules"
Six precepts he wrote for long life,
which recently Dr. C. M. McCay of
the Cornell laboratory found in some
old collection. They read, in brief:
1-Longevity is obtained by diet.
2 - Spare diet produces longevity.
3 - Animals which come later to
perfection are longer lived.
4 -To grow long and slowly is a
sign of longevity. The taller
the stature the better.
5 - I would have men observe that
the same things that conduce
to health do not always con-
duce to longevity.
6 - Again there are other" things
that are beneficial to longer
life, yet not without danger to
health.
'The first four of these observations
the Cornell diet experiments have
substantiated. The dangers men-
' tioned in the last two are not so well
established, although they are signs
that they may exist.
Calories Reduced
Just one small change in diet pro-
duced the long-lived rats. This was

a reduction of daily food calories of
about 33 per cent. Otherwise they
ate the same as their "control" com-
panions, all of which died more than
half a rat century ago.
They failed, however, to stand heat
waves as well as the ordinary rats.
Otherwise they appeared to be in
complete health. They were as ac-
tive. They did not mature until the
age of two years, just about when
their companions were ready to die
of old age.
One ill of the flesh their diet failed
to stay. This was cataract and eye
troubles. Their eyes seemed to grow
old at about ordinary rates.
When they die it is hoped the body
tissues of these rats will reveal some
of the unknown causes of old age.
The processes probably will apply to
men as well as rats. Many men grow
old before their time. Science sus-
pects that all persons age faster than
is necessary.
OWOSSO ALUMNI MEET
T. Hawley Tapping, general secre-
tary of the Alumni Association, will
address a dinner meeting of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Club of Owosso

EXTEND DEPOSIT INSURANCE

MORE NAZIS
SANTIAGO, Chile, March 12. - OP)
-Organization of a nationwide unit
of the National Socialists, called
"Tropas Nacistas de Asalto," or
"storm troops," has been completed
by Fernando Ortuzar, one of the right
hand men of Jorge Gonzalez, Nazi
chieftain.

Capt. Corniglion Molinier and Andre Malraus reported from
French Somoliland that they had found the lost capital of the Queen
of Sheba. The explorers said 20 towers or temples still stand at the site
which they gave as the northern edge of the great sandy desert in
Arabia as shown in map at left. They reported they had taken photo-
graphs of the ruins. If the two are correct in the belief, they have
ended a search conducted by scientists for centuries. The land of Sheba

-Associated Press Photo
in Biblical times was one of the wealthiest in the then known world.
The second Book of Chronicles hinted at this wealth in describing the
visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon when it said: "And she
gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold and of spices great
abundance and precious stones." At right is, an old steel engraving
depicting the Queen's visit to Solomon.

The initiates include: Benjamin
Myerow, '37; Jack Chason, '37; Ed-
ward Cushman, '37; George Halprin,
'37E; Milton Mintz, '37; John Man-
delberg, '34; Sol Selevan, '35.
Detroit alumni who came to the
banquet included: Dr. Milton Marx,
Dr. Clem Zipperstein, Mr. Herbert
Eiges, Mr. Sam Rubin, Mr. Jules
Pliskon, Mr. Ralph Benyas.

May Postpone
Anti-War Meet
Due To Conflict
The anti-war conference to be con-
ducted by the Michigan , League
Against War and Militarism may face
postponement if plans for a meeting
of the campus League of Nations or-
ganization are carried out. The dates
for the latter meeting, April 20 and
21, would cause a week's postpone-
ment of the anti-war conference.
Gordon Halstead, Grad., chairman
of the organization committee for the
conference, is seeking to bring Kirby
Page and Scott Nearing to Ann Ar-
bor to address the conference. Pub-
licity is being sent to all colleges and
junior colleges in Michigan and a
poster contest to announce the con-
ference is being considered.
All campus organizations are in-
vited to send delegates to the con-
ference and the production of an
anti-war play is being considered by
the committee.

Late Periission Leaves Senior
Women Wondering What To Do

Night life locally, after 12:30 a.m.
Saturdays, is a recreation that be-
longs exclusively to the male of the
species, as the lost battalion of senior
women with their new-found freedom
discovered last week-end. And so,
"Now that we have it what shall we
do with.it?" was the most conspicu-
ous question.
Dances at the League and Union
end at midnight, and the emanci-
pated co-eds came out of them to
find they still had an hour and-a-
half in which to terminate the eve-
ning. They began to wander about
the campus area, hurrying from force
of habit yet knowing they didn't have
to in reality. Some invaded the res-
turants and found that they were
not overly-welcome sights to the pat-
rons already there, for they were men
and resented having to modify their
celebrating the end of another week
in deference to women.
Many weathered the glares and
stayed till the last minute, however,
reveling in the thought that the ma-
jority of their sisters were safely put

away for the night nearly an hour
before.
Theatre patrons had the unusual
experience of mixing with women
students at the midnight show, which
has been another pastime restricted
quite completely to the men and ap-
preciated because of it. Many women
students in the past expressed the
wish that they might attend these
shows, and now seniors have the
right. Whether or not they joined
in the general bedlam that is a part
of these performances is another
question.

cessful professors must be able to
make students "work like the devil
and like it," Dr. B. O. Skinner, State
Director of Education, believes.
"Unsympathetic and s a r c a s t i c
teachers should be removed from the
schools and universities," Dr. Skin-
ner says.

~can saey
keste'/ields are
not /lik others
NO two people in the world look
alike ... act alike. So it is with
tobacco... just like folks.
No two leaves are the same.
And it's the same with cigarettes...
no two brands are alike.
Furthermore, not only are the to-
baccos different, but the way the to-
baccos are handled is different.
This, you can understand.
You know just as well as we do
that no two manufacturers use the
same kinds of tobaccos, or blend them
or cross-blend them or weld them
together in the same manner.
We do everything that science
knows and that money can buy to
make CHESTERFIELD as good a
cigarette as can be made.
We hope you like them. They are
"not like others."

Well I never in my life see such an exhibition of sheer cussedness on
ie part of a motor. It is as temperamental probably as the original pos-
ssor of the hairpin which holds the choke prior to the moment when I
op it overboard. (I mean the hairpin).
VHEN THE REST OF THE FIELD has covered about a half mile out of
the two-mile course, the engine finally gives a horrible roar, and we
ap into the air and are off. I give her all I can but have to sit facing the
otor, steering with one hand and holding the choke with the other and
if the time I am headed goodness knows where.
We are tearing along at quite a rate and I notice for the first time
by the motor superstructure is all covered with oil. There is a hole that
'ips it onto the flywheel and it goes in all directions including on me.
