Two Famous
British Flyers
Wed in London
LONDON, July 29.--P--J. A. Mol-
lison and Miss Amy Johnson, two of
Great Britain's most noted long dis-
tance flyers, were married at St.
George's church in Hanover Square
this morning.
Mollison plans to take off on a
transatlantic flight to the United
States Aug. 7.
When Mollison announced that he
was going to try the transatlantic
flight Miss Johnson said she wanted
to go with him. Since then there
has been no definite word from either
as to vhether they will make the
flight together.
Amy Johnson is a dame comman-
der of the dritish Empire, an honor
conferred upon he' in 1930 after she
failed in her first attempt at a flight
to Tokio across Siberia, but she tried
again and made the round trip.
Mdllison took something less than
nine days for his flight to Australia

queen of Mexico's Olympic team for

tions on the site.
Legible After 2,000 Years
The contract, still legible after
2,000 years, states that Archidamus
had bought the house from Sosion
"with a year's grace for deliverance,"
and that the house was located be-
tween those of Pythian and Poly-'
Olynthus was destroyed in 348
B. C. by Philip of Macedon, father
of Alexander the Great, and never
rebuilt. Houses, streets, money
ornaments, implements of all kinds
remain just as they were left when
the 40,000 inhabitants were slain o'
sold into slavery.
'Extra Fare' Styx, Ride'
In a cemetery near the city Dr.
Robinson discovered that tfour coins
instead of the usual one"had been
placed in the mouths of several
skeletons to pay the fee of Charon,
underworld god, for ferrying the dead
across the river Styx.
Discoveries of mosaics probably
made before Alexander's birth and
which Dr. Robinson says will alter
some conceptions of Greek history
previously held by archaeologists
were made on the site.
Houses Well Built
The houses uncovered by Dr. Rob-
inson were well built and well
planned, and equipped with bath tubs
and shower bath arrangements in
many cases. There was usually an
open court in the center, with a sec-
ond-floor balcony looking down upon
the court.
As a result of the discovery, Dr.
Robinson 'says that "the statement:
that the Greeks till the Hellenistic
age lived in pretty little towns and
houses like so many wasps' nests
end had no important domestic ar-
chitecture will have to be revised."
A bronze "pencil and eraser" was
found in the ruins. It is in the
form of a two-headed crocodile.
From one mouth projects a sharp
stilus for writing on wax, and from
the other a flat piece of bronze for
erasing mistakes.
Silver and bronze coins from 50
different places were unearthed in-
dicating Olynthus had a wide "for-
eign trade."

THERE'S, nothing better than a bowl of
delicious Kellogg's Corn Flakes and milk. So
easy to digest, it invites sound -sleep.
Dietitians advise it. How much more healtl-
ful than hot, heavy foods..
So order Kellogg's when you drop in at
the' campus restaurant tonight. Enjoy with
canned peaches, or sweeten with honey for
an extra treat. Good ... and good for you!

Suddenly the industrial leader awakes to take stock of
his plant. He finds that, under his very nose, it has grown
antiquated. New days-new ways. Each new machine
rings the death knell of old ones now in use. And the
steady Itream of new and better tools often takes indus-
try by surprise.
American Maehiist has taken it upon itself to stave off
this day of reckoning intur metal-working plants. It has
appointed itself an advance guard of modern industry...

signs of age on our industrial brow.


It-doesn't wait for them to take stock of themselves.
Every five years American Machinist takes stock for them.
And it brings them the cold facts through an exhaustive
and rigid nation-wide survey. In 1925, it pointed out
that 44% of all machine-tool equipment was obsolete. In
1930, its census set that figure at 48%. It placed that
data before responsible men. And it showed them how
to bring their plants up to date.
