THURSDAY, JULY 6, 1944 Bl.YTHEVILLB (ARK,)] .COURIER NEWS Find On Attu May Moke Pair Of Yanks Rich ATTU, Aleutian Islands, July 6 (U.P.)—A couple of Americans f .iiy rame back from this war a t richer than when they went. And Uien again, they may not. It all depends on how much a big chunk of white waxy stuff they found on n beacli on Atlu is worth. The luicerlalnty is terrific for United Press War correspondent Russell Annabel, nJ)d Navy Lieutenant Commander Al Nenl, of Pittsburgh, Pa. The two men think, or at any rate they hope, that the stuff they found Is ambergris, tlie rare substance used in the most expensive perfumes. II is worth $30 an ounce, and Annabel and Neal have a wad of 200 pounds of it. That would lun to SOS.COO. That Is, if it's ambergris. The Army's chemists have been trying lo iiml out, but their tests aren't certain yet. It all started when Annabel and Neal turned beachcombers and walked along the Attu beaches looking for moonstones. And what should they conic across but a heap of white waxy stuff tossed up by the surf. Annabel, who knows news but not ambergris, didn't think much about it. But Lieutenant Commander Ncal's eye's popped. He reached for a cigarette with shaky hands, and muttered, "Let's go to a laboratory on the double." They took a sample along. The Army chemists' weren't sure. II could be one of many things, beef Inlloiv, or paraffin—or maybe ambergris. They put it to several tests The stuff had the right specific gravity and the right melting point for. tu'nbcrgrls. It had no acid, no iv-jsl", and would dissolve in boilint So far, everything was going down tlie right road to riches lor Annabel and Neal. But then the chemists ran inl a • stone wall. To make the fina tests they needed a chemical called acetic anhydrite. And there's noni on Atlu. The chemists have reached jus one conclusion after their test that lasted all night. They kno\ it's either ambergris, or a worth less product from the Inc tree from India. 89 Annabel and Neal arc still o pins and needles. They don't know relatively speaking, whether they'r princes or, paupers. And, as Amiable says, "This SIB pense is awful."
