Attack Bolivian Fort in
Border Area; Two Dead
LA PAZ, Bolivia, July 20.-(AP)--
The ancient boundary fued between
fBolivia and Paraguay flamed today
to the point where Bolivians crowd-
ed the streets and shouted for war.
The demonstration followed news
that 300 Paraguay troops attacked
Fort Mariscal, Santa Cruz, in the
border area, Saturday and that the
fighting was continuing. Two sol-
diers, persumably Bolivians, were re-
ported killed.,
A crowd of 10,000 gathered in the
square before the presidential palace
after the announcement was made,
shbuting against "Paraguayan ag-
g;ression," and demanding war.
President Daniel Salamanca ap-
peared and told. them the Bolivian
people would know how to carry out
their duty against an aggressor, end-
Ing by urging them to be ready to
serve their country if needed.
The cabinet was called into ses-
sion to discuss the situation.
For fifty years the quarrel be-
tween Paraguay and Bolivia over
the Gran Chaco 'egion has drag-
ged on. The region lies between tle
rivers Paraguay and Pilcomayo and
is a wild jungle, but considered to
have rich possibilities.
Several Mimes during the half
century the two countries have
been brought to the verge of war.
Diplomatic relations were broken in
1928 and not fully resumed until
May, 1930. -
-Negotiations were carried on at
Washington until very recently, un-
der the good offices, of the United
States, Cuba, Mexico and Uruguay,
lut when fighting was reported early
his month the Paraguay govern-
melt instructed its delegates to
withdraw.
Reports early this year said there
were about 5,000 Bolivian and 4,-
00 Paraguayan troops in the region,
that 'Bolivia had 32 forts, oftposts
and camps to Paragtay's 2' and
that Bolivia was using 25 airplanes.

Aueiepts Lost Heads for Error;
Eclipse Now Timed to Second

By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE
(Associated Press Science Editor)
NEW YORK, July 20-(AP)-New
England will see a total eclipse of
the sun August 31.
That is just 52 days less than
4069 years ago when two Chinese
astronomers 'were beheaded for 'get-
ting drunk at the world's first re-
corded eclipse.
Since then strange events at eclip-
ses identify the big steps in the
whole story of human progress.
Beheaded For Miscalculation
The two, Chinese, Hsi and H ,
miscalculated the time of the an-
cient eclipse.
Worse yet, they mis-timed an ad-
vance celebration, so that they were
too drunk to appear in the royal
presence to shoot arrows at the
monster; devouring the sun. For
that they were executed.
Any of the astronomers gather-
ing from America, Europe and the
orient for the New England eclipse
would feel disgraced if their calcu-
'State Senator's Auto

DETROIT, July 20.-(AP)-State
Senator George J. Sadowski's auto-
mobile, seized a week ago in execu-
tion of a $70 default judgment ob-
tained against him and which was to
have been offered for sale at public
auction, has been returned to its
owner through settlement of a print-
ing bill, for which the judgment was
obtained.

lations of 3:30 p. m. (standard) for
this event missed by even one sec-
ond, or if they were a mile wrong in
forecastingthe 50 mile wide path of
total shadow.,
Eclipse History Studied
One of these astronomers, Dr. S.
A. Mitchell of the University of Vir-
ginia, has gathered some history of
the former eclipses.
Between the first one and the,
most famous one in all history, in
525 B. C., the world made a big,
stride. By the time wise men had
learned to use eclipses for political
purposes.
According to Herodotus, Thales, a
Greek, told the Ionians there would
be an eclipse. They in turn told
the Lydians, who had been fighting
the Medes for five years.
"They were still warring with
equal success," s a y s Merodotus,
"when it chanced, at an encounter
which happened in the sixth year,
that during the battle the day was
turned into night."
They stopped fighting and made
peace.
Good 'Press Agent Stuff'
By Julius Caesar's time eclipses
were in the press agent class. One,
is said to have occurred when Cae-
ern astronomers find that there was
no such eclipse, and they ought to
know, for they have dug up about
2,600 of them since the two Chi-
sar crossed the Rubicon. But mod-
nese lost their heads. The Rubi-
con eclipse was evidently flattery.
Shakespeare's writings are full of
references to heavenly phenomena
as omens of good or ill.
