Battered Corpse Discovered Floating
Near Cape Brinez By Pilot-
Ships Maria Eaugraud
(By Associated Press)
BOULOGNE, July 19-Finding to-
day of tihe body of Captain Albert
Lowenstein, missing Belgian million-
aire cleared up most of the grim mys-
tery surrounding his disappearance
from a cross channel aeroplane on
July 4.
Suicide Question Not Solved
French and Belgian authorities will
still have to determine whether Cap-
tain Lowenstein accidentally fell from
the plane as it flew 4,000 feet over
the English channel, or deliberately
wrenched open the exit door and
plunged to his death. But the ugly
rumor thlat the financier had premed-
itated a hoax and was still alive were
definitely set at rest by the finding
of the body. The battered body was
found floating ten miles from Cape
Brisnez and was taken aboard the
pilot ship Maria Eaugrand. Identity
wias established by a wrist plate bear-
ing the banker's name and addres.
Decomposition had set in but the fea-
tures were still sufficiently recogniza-
ble to permit recognition by Captain
Lowenstein's relatives.
Official Inquiry Expected
it is believed here that now that
the mystery of the financier's dis-
appearance has been bared, the
French government will begin an of-
ficilal inqufry to establish whether the
death~was accidental or a suicide and
if any of Captain LowenIstein's fel-
low passengers in the plane will share
any responsibility for his death.
One.of the first results of today's
find will be to permit immedately the
preliminary work of winding up the
vast estate of Europe's greatest "mys-
tery" financier. Had the 'body re-
mained undiscovered legal experts
feared that it would be years before
this work could be completed and
that the Captain's great holdings
would be tied up indefinitely.
Professor Bradley M. Davis, of the
Botany department, will deliver a lec-
ture on "Jamaica' in Natural Science

This lecture is one of the regularly
scheduled University lectures arrang-
ed during the summer under the di-
rection of Dean Kraus. In his lec-
ture this afternoon Professor Davis
will explain interesting information
regarding Jamaica, having devoted
considerable study in this direction.
As an added feature of his lecture
he has arranged to exhibit a large
collection of water-color sketches
which are exhibited in Room 2003, and
will be shown following Professor
Davis' address.

many countries, portfolios of school

er explained. "These are the parent,
the employer, and the school. None
of these are satisfactory advisors for
the child. The parents know many
things about the boy or girl that are
of value in plotting the course of
his life, but they have little know-
ledge of business and industrial con-
ditions. The same may be said of
the teachers in the 'schools. The
employer is not a satisfactory adviser
because he is more interested in get-
ting the right person for a job than
in getting the right job for a per-
son. It is obvious that the choice
of 'a life-work cannot be left to the
child, since he has had so little ex-
perience, and it is just as obvious
that none of the others will do. The
only logical 'scheme seems to be to
establish some central bureau that
can collect and tabulate all the infor-
and make them available for the study
mation from these various sources,
and use of the student."
