Dr. Hrdlicka, aided by a group of eight volunteer college students, spent most of the summer in a continuation of his excavations on an ancient habitation site on which he began work four years ago and which now is considered one of the key sites of North American archeology. He has brought back to Washington a large amount of cultural and skeletal material by means of which it now is possible to reconstruct much of the history of the vanished people. The skeletal material shows beyond question, Dr. Hrdlicka says, that those who inhabited the deep and intermediate layers were American Indians, similar in physical type and basic culture to the early prehistoric people of the British Columbia coast. It may be assumed that Kodiak Island was the pathway by which this strain made its way south. Dr. Hrdlicka made a personal study of the Canadian materials before arriving at this conclusion. The earliest settlement on Kodiak Island, he estimates, may have taken place about two thousand years ago. Before that the place was practically uninhabitable. With the passing of the glaciers the surface of the lower parts of the island consisted largely of barren, boulder-strewn gravel. There followed then a dry period, with very strong winds blowing from the mainland. These winds, the evidence shows. picked up large amounts of the loose soil from the barren surfaces of the peninsula and deposited it on the glacial till of Kodiak island. The first settlement came shortly afterward. The deepest traces of habitation are directly on top of this loess. The "pioneers" must have come over the peninsula. It is interesting to note that "dust storms" of essentially the same sort as the United States experienced a vear ago were intimately associated with a migratory movement possibly two thousand years ago. These earliest people stayed only a short time. Perhaps they went southward, becoming the ancestors of the Indians of the northwest . luiiuncu iiiiuiner penoa or winds blowing across the lsiana with more deposits of loess. This covers now to the depth of four or five inches the cold hearths of the earliest settlers. Then another settlement was made on the site by people of the same physical type. The loess deposits ceased, indicating a climatic change, with rains, which caused the island to be covered with vegetation. From this time on the site was continuously inhabited until about the time of the Russian occupation, when, in all probability on account of some epidemic, it was abandoned and stayed thus until the natives lost even the name of the location. But during the upper fifth of the long period the original race was replaced by migrants of the Aleut type. The indications are that they defeated, and probably massacred, the older inhabitants. At all the periods of the first type of people there was a relatively high type of culture, the oldest being, in some respects, the most advanced. And this was carried on under the most difficult conditions i-h.

I ui kllw vUiLUl of any such a settlement until the excavations are finished. Every new dwelling-compound examined shows significant variations family specialties and this makes it necessary to excavate the whole of the accumulations, for only thus can be obtained a fair picture of the group culture and of the people themselves, physically, and even pathologically. During the old and even the intermediate time the first people, for example, made portrait effigies from bone, wood, and ivory. These were evidently carved to represent real individuals. Dr. Hrdlicka has obtained nine of them. In some, one might suspect, there was a touch of humor. The "portrait" of one old man shows clearly that he had lost his teeth. Another, with a sort of crown about the head, reveals the stern, strong face of a man who may well have been a great leader. Still another had a chin beard, a rarity among the Indians.

They appear to have been the world's first fox tamers. The foxes must have been the pets of the children, for when a child died one or two were slain and buried with it. that the little one might not be alone in the after-world. Dr. Hrdlicka found one grave in which a little girl had been buried with a fox by her side and with its head resting on her open hand. They also had two varieties of dogs, although these appear somewhat later than the foxes.

UHL MADRID (P) Formal abdication of Alfonso XIII. former king of Spain, as a wedding present to his son, the Infante Juan, now titular prince of the Asturias. is the dream of a large section of Spanish monarchists. Efforts to get the deposed mon arch to give up his claim to the 1 crown thus far have been fruitless, but high monarchist circles are i hopeful that Alfonso may yield to pressure as a gesture in behalf of j restoring unity to Spain's divided monarchists. HOPE IN STURDY PRINCE In Juan, these monarchists see a new hope for restoration of the throne. The prince is twenty-two, and is strong and vigorous in con- ! trast with his two cider brothers. Alfonso, former heir apparent who suffers from hemophelia, and Jaime j who is a deaf mute. He has served j in the Spaftish and British navies and has been groomed as a potential j candidate for the throne. His marriage, too. is regarded by monarchists as perfectly in accord With dynastic necessities. The ex-prince of the Asturias married a Cuban commoner, thus cutting him-j self off from the throne, while Juan is marrying a distant cousin, Princess Maria de la Esperanza, youngest child of the Infante Carlos (Prince) Charles of Bourbon Two! Sicilies) and Infanta Luis. Princess of Orleans. She is just a year younger than Juan. ALFONSO'S POPULARITY WANES Ex-King Alfonso has lost so much popularity in Spain, both because of i his flight in October 1931 and his j subsequent domestic difficulties, that me commg marriage ui ms son is regarded by many monarchists as a perfect moment to start afresh. At the same time monarchist leaders say it is likely that Don Carlos, eighty-seven-year-old Carlist pretender, also could be persuaded to surrender his claim, thus unit-ing all monarchists behind a common candidate. While Alfonso left his throne in 1931, he never formally abdicated. One of his first acts in exile was to issue a manifesto in which he said ! he had been forced out and had not I surrendered his rights. The fact that he has replaced his i chamberlain, the late Duke de Mi- I randa, by the Marquis de la Eliseda, a young deputy in the present Span-' ish cortes, is regarded as indicating j Alfonso himself realizes the need for j young blood. Some four thousand monarchists are planning to go to Rome for the wedding of Infante Juan and a subscription is being collected for a wedding present. SCOUT LEADERS SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 2.(JP) The woman of today is in an "en-viable position," President Robert ; Gordon Sproul of the University of California told several hundred girl scout leaders and executives as- j sembled here today for the opening of the twenty-first annual conven-1 tion of the national scout council. J "The scientific professions, no I longer scorning feminine talent, welcome women of ambition and in- j tellect," he declared, "proudly ac-cepting them and grateful for their; innate understanding. "The humanitarian s e r v ic e s ! frankly prefer women; business defers to their judgment; art demands them, and even in the field of sports women are almost daily taking a more prominent part." Dr. Sproul paid high tribute to Mrs. Lulette Low, founder of the girl scout movement in Savannah. 1 Ga 23 years agb, and told his audience they were playing "a most im portant part in strengthening the fibre and creating the character of a great nation."

DAGUE (NEA Service Staff Writer) My school luncheon standby is soup, made sometimes with meat stock and sometimes with milk. Always it has lots of vegetables in it. The accompaniment for the soup adds much to the interest of the meal. Croutons, Melba chips and toast sticks are easy to make and use stale bread to splendid advantage. To make Melba chips, cut stale French rolls in very thin slices, crosswise of. the roll. The slices shouldn't be more than an eighth of an inch thick. Spread on a shallow pan and put in a slow oven until crisp and brown throughout. USE FINE GRAIN BREAD Toast Melba is made of bread cut as thin as a wafer and toasted until crisp and brown in a slow oven. You can buy this in packages, too.

Mo., Oct. 2. iJP) A parade of St. Louis society women started across the witness stand here today as the state drove forward its contention that Mrs. Nellie Tipton Muench. whose "gift of God ' baby also is claimed by a Philadelphia servant girl, was the "goldie" woman principal in the 1931 kidnaping of Dr. Isaac D. Kelley. Mrs. Muench, sister of a state supreme court justice, is on trial for alleged complicity in the abduction of the wealthy St. Louis throat specialist. He was released without ransom payment. Mrs. W. D. Orthwein. member of a socially prominent St. Louis family was the state's first witness this morning. She corroborated her sister, Mrs. Kelley. wife of the victim, who testified yesterday that Mrs. Muench and a man she believed to be Angelo Rosegrant watched closely the movements of Dr. Kelley at a hotel party a few 1 weeks prior to the kidnaping. Rosegrant was convicted of nar- ticipating in the Kelley kidnaping last winter. Adolph Fielder. 515-pound key witness for the state, testified yesterday that Mrs. Muench. also known to him as "Goldie." was present in his St. Louis county recreation parlor when the kidnaping of Dr. Kelley was plotted. Other morning witnesses were Mr. Orenthwein and Donald C. Bixby. St. Louis county socialite, who was a guest at the party. Evidence Is Lost From Moving Train Traveling on a train near Cairo, Egypt, a secret police agent suspected a fellow passenger of being a drug trafficker.

A fine, close grained texture in bread is important for croutons and it must be stale but not too dry. Cut in slices about one-half inch thick, remove crusts and cut each slice into cubes with a very sharp knife. The sharp knife means much, too, because the cubes must be smooth and clean cut. Dry them until they are crisp through. After this they may be toasted or fried in deep fat. j Croutons go right into the soup ( and form a part of it. Consequently j they are eaten from the soup plate ; and never with the fingers. MAY BE PASSED OR SERVED There are two attractive ways to serve croutons. One way is to pass I them to each person for him to help ( himself, or, if the soup is served by ! the man of the house at the table, English style, he drops one or two tablespoons of croutons into each plate as he serves it. Toast sticks are what their name implies, sticks of toast. The bread is cut in strips about three-quarters o; an inch thick and three-quarters ' of an inch wide and three inches long. It is then toastsd in a hot j oven and served, unbuttered, like ; crackers. Each person helps him-! self and butters his own stick or not as he prefers. WOMEN'S CLUBS ME LEADERS ELY. Nev Oct. 2.

UP) (Spe cial) Governmental purchase of some fifteen thousand acres of land for use by Indians of western Nevada has been ordered suspended. It was recently learned by Roy C. Parrett. until recently superintendent of the Schurz Indian agency, who said that he was advised of this action last month while in Washington. Appraisals had been under way for several months and negotiations were opened up under the submar-ginal land purchasing program. The areas considered were to be used for establishing homes for Indians and for setting aside grazing areas for their exclusive use. Lack -of funds to carry out the program is understood to be the reason for its suspension. It has been planned to acquire between ten and twelve thousand acres in the Reese river valley where Indians were to be established. Use of rome fourteen hundred acres north of Fallon as grazing ground for the Stillwater and Fallon Indians, and of similar acreage in Mason valley had been contemplated. There remains possibility of securing a limited amount of Indian lands under the land acquisition program of the Wheeler-Howard bill, according to Parrett. although opportunity under this act is not so favorable due to the fact that the Nevada Indians had voted against provisions of this bill.
