FACE 36 TUCSON D A I L Y CITIZEN THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMIER 20, ItSI Abominable * Snowman Search Set Trek Backed By American KATHMANDU, Nepal --UPI -American oil millionaire Tom Slick has asked the Neptles* gov- «rnment for permission to send an expedition into the Himalayan Mountains to search for the Abominable Snowman. The four-man team wa« expected to concentrate ite »earch In the Barun Valley of the Evsrest and Makalu rangef, but it may visit the mountain kingdom of Mustang to examine th* skin of a strange animal that could be the mysterious, humao-likt crea- turt oft-times sighted in flit mountains. Th« expedition will include two Britons, one American and an Indian zoologist It will remain in the mountains for six months according to the plans Slick submitted to the Nepaleae government. The Rajah of Mustang, whose men killed the animal last February, refused to send the skin to the Nepalese capital for study. He said it never has been seen before and, therefore, is considered sacred by his people. The skin is being kept in the Mustang Buddhist monastery. The Rajah, however, invited ·dentists to his territory, some 150 miles northwest of Kam- mandu, 19,000 feet up in the mountains near the Tibetan border. He also tent photographs of the creature and hair shorn from its hide. Responsible authorities who examined the exhibits said the pictures indicated the animal was a brown bear, but mat the hair was unlike that of any known Himalayan animal A similar report came from Dr. Francis Dart of he University of Oregon, who is doing work here. He used a microscope to compare the hair with that of other Nepalese animals and reported it was very different lie Abominable S n o w m a n called "Yeti" by the Nepalese- has been me basis for many a dispute in Nepal for. several years since travelers in the Himalayas first reported teeing a strange creature toping along on two legs. Soviet scientists earKer ttris year ·aid they spotted a strange, silvery-haired creature, but that it vanished into a cave. There have been reports that the Russians plan an expedition to track down the legend once and for all. Reports from Mustang said the creature killed in February was traced by me footprints it left in the snow--footprinti that resembled those of · human being. American Helps Map Amazon Peak NEW YORK-UH-An American ·xplorer who knows his way around the Andes has returned from the wilds of the Upper Amazon, where he helped map a mountain peak that has lured airmen to their deaths. George Michanowsky of New York, has been exploring mountains northeast of La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, for several summers. It is part of his program, as founder and president of ths Amazonia Foundation, to shed new light on the ancient Aymarasj presumed antecedents of tha dynasty of the Inca Empire. Last year, Michanowsky's wc- pedition made news by discovering an ancient road which is now part of a chain of strong evidence that the Aymaras, contrary to accepted belief, did have a written language. This year, still poking around the 100-by-50-mile area northeast of La Paz, Michanowsky's six- member Amazonia team spent two and a half months performing a valuable task. The team mapped a 16,000-foot mountain peak known to airmen as El Centinela, or The Sentinel, which guards the Amazonian approaches to the Andes. The peak is a deadly menace to aviation because it is concealed by cloud formations and "sneaks up" on unsuspecting pilots who have their eyes on the mora distant Andean peaks. Last winter, 11 persons were killed when a Bolivian Army transport smashed into the peak. Despite the need, The Sentinel had never before been mapped. "The makers were discouraged because the area is so desolate, so Impenetrable," Michanowsky explained. His team completed a preparatory mapping of the peak by working from the ground and air. With the information thus obtained, The Sentinel now can be pin pointed on maps. Michanowsky plans to return to Bolivia nert year and, possibly with the aid" of a helicopter, develop a still more detailed map of The Sentinel and Its eye-deceiving approaches. Along with Bolivian newspaper acclaim, Michanowsky received a unanimously adopted citation from the nation's Chamber of Deputies! In recognition of his cultural a n d ' good-will activities. Latin Ameri-! can officials have called the c i - i tatton an unprecedented event in i inter-American relations. | THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMIER 20, 1951 T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN PAGE 37 You Get More Good From These Birds Eye Buys!

Then he gets his 100-year-old wife Mary to serve it up in their farm home, a place that is bare of all the so-called luxuries of modern living. The couple offer living proof of the old saying that "you're as young as you feel." Mrs. Weeks still does her own cooking, washing, ironing and other chores. Her only help is from a neighbor girl who carries in the water from the farmhouse well. Weeks manages his chores around their farm near here without any trouble. He and his wife are exceptionally healthy, although Weeks was "laid up for a spell" recently when he stuck a nail in his foot on one of his hog-chasing forays. In addition to longevity, the couple boasts a collection of given names that causes despair to court clerks and officials. Weeks' full name is Jessie James Washington William Perry Weeks, and his wife is named Mary Etta Virginia Couch Weeks. The long-lived, long-named couple came to Arkansas from Alabama in 1934. They moved to their farm near here in 1952. When they are not busting around working or visiting, both like to look back to the past Weeks' favorite story is about the time his sister Frances "went modern" -- back in 1860. "She cut her dress off nearly up to the knees, and went out in public." Weeks said. "She was arrested, and my father had to pay her fine." He remembers how his first auto, a 1910 model, caused such a stir in the community. "People walked for 50 miles to see the critter," he said. "A whole passel of them stood around looking at it." The Weeks are elderly, but they aren't the only ones in the family who can claim to having outlived insurance policies. One of Weeks' sisters claims to be 107. Another has just turned 102 and a third is 100. ' The baby in the family, Carrie Weeks, is 96. "Don't know what caused us to live so long," Weeks said. "Luck, maybe -- or else it just runs in the family." Computers May Tackle Human Brain MINNEAPOLIS -at- Electronic computers may soon be taped loose on the human brain to givt man his most accurate picture at what makes th« mind work. And while tfie complicated workings of « computer art delving into luman problems, the even mere complex functions of men and animals may give engineers torn* answers to their puzzles. Such new horizons wert being explored today as experts from throughout the nation gathered here for the annual Conference of Electrical Technique* in Medicine and Surgery. Prof. Otto Schmitt, a University of Minnesota biochemist who in chairman of the conference, said that in the not-toc-distant futur* electronic brains could serv* as * doctor's assistant and help in diagnosing heart and brain ailments and perhaps suggest remedial steps. . He said a computer may be ablt to spell out the sequence by which the brain gathers ifc information, giving som« insight into ms way me brain works in the learning process. "Engineering ba* contributed much to biology through use of machines and n«w facilities," Schmitt said. "But biology also is able to help the engineers by suggesting ways in which biological logic and functioning might help in development of computing devices." For instance, he said, engineers might want to explore what bio- ogical process permits birds to navigate unerringly during migration. Or they might want to know what process bats are able to guide themselves on their own sonar signals. Schmitt said if biological phenomena can be understood and explained, "then we have a big start in the direction of applying what we call biological coding to machines." Lady Godiva Sent To Hospital LONG BEACH, Calif.-tt»--A woman drove her car up to a. curb, stopped the motor and stepped out. She wore white tennis shoes- nothing else. A flustered merchant offered * blanket to shield her from stares end the biting wind of yesterday's cold snap. She refused it. Police hustled the motorized Lady Godiva off to jail. The blue- eyed blonde said she is 31, but refused to give her name. She was taken later to the Los Angeles County General Hospital.
