Yarik Forces Near Towii Of St. Die About to Capture Place That Cave America Its Name Washington, D.'-O., Oct. 14— American forces are about to capture .the place that made them Americans. It Is the Inconspicuous little town of St. Die in the Vosges Mountains of northeastern Prance. There, at the College of, St. Die; at the beginning 'of the 16th century, points' out the National Geographic •Society, Martin Waldseemuller, a geograph-j er, first traced the name "America" on a map. later he changed his mind; but the nnme stuck. Born at Freiburg, Germany, about 1480, Waldseemuller was inspired by the land discoveries of Columbus' day to undertake a revision ol the ancient atlas of Ptolemy. . In 1507 the St. Die staff published separately a large wall-map of the world in twelve sections, meas- urine 8 by I'.i feet when assembled, American libraries have copies of the and a 52-pnge "Introduction to Cos- original 1507 pamphlet. The copies mography" by Waldseemuller, Lct-|of the map, because of the dUfi- culty of preserving them were in time were in ilme destroyed or lost. ters of Amerigo Vespucci (Americas Vespucius) describing his voyages were turned over to the St, Die scholars only a short time before the map and treatise were published. ' The name appeared on the vague land mass drawn at the lefthand edge of the map to represent the new continent. In his. pamphlet, Waldseemuller observed: "... I do not see What is to hinder us- from ceiling it Amerige or America , . . after Its discoverer Amerlcus, a man of sagacious mind, since both Europe and Asia have got their names from women." Probably a thousand copies of tire map printed from wood-cut engravings, were distributed to all parts of Europe. On a revised map which was published In 1516, Wald- seemuller showed that he felt* he had unjustly credited Amerigo Ves-| pucci by substituting for Americr; the name "Brazilla sive Terra Papa-; gall!" (Brazil or the land of parrots), i But It was too late—the Old World! had already taken to the "name I America. •• ; Several European and some] The news late in 1801 of the discovery o£ a copy In the library of R Prussian ducal castle excited world Interest. This original was exhibited In America for the first ilme at a meeting of the Notional Geographic Society in Washington, December 18, 1903. * St. Die, today R town of 15,000 people, lies in the upper basin of the''Meurtlie River surrounded by] the Vosgea Mountains, at the cen-J ter of a triangle formed by Nancy, '. Strasbourg and Belfort. To Martin' Watdseemuller it was a refuge. HU father, a 'prosperous butcher of Freiburg, had met a violent death and tho son had sought a new home.
