November 17, 1958 ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL Page Seven Mystery in Himalayas Scientists Invited to Examine Skin That May Be Abominable Snowman KATMANDU, Nepal (UPI) The rajah of Mustang has invited scientists to his mountain lair in the high Himalayas to examine the skin ot a strange animal that may or may not be an abominable snowman. Responsible authorities in Katmandu, including American experts, have examined photographs of the creature and hair shorn from its hide after it was killed by the rajah's men last February. The photos indicate the animal was a brown bear. The hair, however, is unlike that of any known Himalayan animal. - The Rajah, whose territory is 150 miles northwest of Kat mandu, 19,000 feet high in the mountains on the Nepal side of the Tibetan border, sent word to Katmandu that he could not -send the sTun of th animal for examination. He said that since it never has been seen before, it was considered sacred by his people and must remain in the Mustang Buddhist monastery. Many Scoff He said that if the Nepalese government sent scientists, he would be glad to cooperate with them and grant them every opportunity to examine and test the skin. A Napalese foreign office spokesman said the government would gladly give permission to "bonafide scientists" to trek to Mustang. The spokesman said he doubted that the skin was that of a Yeti the Napalese name for the abominable snowman. Whether the snowman is fact or legend is grounds for a long argument on cold winter nights In Nepal. Many scoff. Others bdieve. And among the believ ers are several Soviet scientists, one of whom said earlier this year that he actually saw strange, silver-haired creature loping along on r.vo legs. It vanished into a cave. There have been reports that the So viets plan an expedition to track down the legend once and for all. Hair Uncommon Father M. D. Moran, head of the Roman Catholic St. Francis Xavier College in Katmandu, and an authority on Himalayan animal life, said the photos of the rajah's trophy seem to show an ordinary Himalayan brown bear. But Father Moran said the hair was "most uncom mon and never before heard of." Dr. Francis Dart of the Uni versity of Oregon, doing work in Nepal, compared the hair with that of other Napalese Claims He Saw Chicago Murder EL PASO (P) El Paso po lice are holding a man who claims he witnessed the mur der of three Chicago boys more than three years ago. Police said the man is a former mental patient. The nude, strangled bodies of Robert Peterson, 13, Anton Scheussler, 11, and John Schuessler, 13, were found in a ditch in a wooded area northeast of Chicago Oct. 18, 1955. Police arrested the suspect on a routine investigation of a man reported ill in downtown El Paso. Saturday morning the man told detec tives he was a drunken occu pant of the car whose driver killed the three boys. "We don't place much credence in his story," Capt. Ted Vogel, chief of detectives, said. "A lot of crackpots have claimed they had something to do with that murder. However, we're going to check his story thoroughly with the Chicago police." In Chicago, police said the man would be questioned by Sgt. Robert LaFrance of the Chicago police.
