Clean Book Tells Of Old Calendar By JOSEPH L. MYLER United Press International WASHINGTON (TJPI)—A researcher reports that he has broken' a Stone Age code which shows that man contrived lunar calendars long before he learned to farm or to write history. His achievement, according to his publisher, - represents "a major breakthrough into the origins of man's culture." It establishes that man was observing the passage of days and phases of the moon 10,000 to 20,000 years earlier than scientists had supposed. The new concept of the antiquity of man's lunar observations was reported by Alexander Marshack of New York, -1 a professional science writer, in the technical magazine "Science." Had Been Puzzled? For years archaeologists have been puzzled by strange lines, dots, and symbols inscribed on pieces of bone or rock walls by men who hunted and fished for a living during the last ice age which began about 37,000 years ago and ended around 10,000 B.C. .Marshack's findings will be published in greater detail next year by the McGraw-Hill Book Co., which said his researches have solved the puzzle "for the first time." Until now there had been no indication that man concerned himself—before he developed the art of agriculture some 12,000 years ago—with marking down defined periods of times. Scientists had assumed that time measurement and calendars came into being because of the seasonal needs of farmers.- But Marshack's findings indicate that calendars were useful to hunters of mammoth and reindeer thousands of years before the advent of agriculture and civilization. Studied "Notations" Marshack. has studied thousands of "notations" found on bits of ice age art. In his "Science" article he discussed four examples—marks engraved on a bit of mammoth ivory from Gpntzi in the Ukraine, on reindeer bone from Czechoslovakia, and on rock walls in Spain. All, he said, suggest recognition by ice age man of the phases of the" moon and the length of a month. In the example from,Spain there Is evidence ' that -observation of the moon was in some way connected with religious rites and the worship of gods.long before the dawn of history! His breaking of the ancient cafendric code, Marshack said, makes it possible for the first time to reconstruct the culture of man in the Stone Age before homo sapiens turned to agriculture and the development of civilization. The Almanac S? UiiJted Prtit International • Today is Wednesday, Nov. 11, the 316th day. of. 1964 with 50 to follow.

' On'thU day » Meter*: , THE LIGHTED SIDE By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — This year, as usual, I grew a small "victory garden" in my backyard. To spare you the trouble of pointing it out, let me say that I am well aware that World War II has been over almost 20 years and that the victory garden program 'therefore has lost some of its urgency. But I'm the cautious type.. It has never been established to my satisfaction that Adolph Hitler really is dead. Pending- more convincing evidence, I in-tend to go on playing it safe.; During the gardening season^' which is just now coming to an end, I am always perplexed by what I regard as one of nature's most baffling mysteries— . namely, how certain insects- manage to find my garden. Attack Sugarcane Let us say, by way of example, that I plant some, sugar-• cane. Sugarcane has never been planted there before— There is no other sugarcane-growing anywhere in the vicinity. And yet, as soon as the crop is above ground it will immedU ately be attacked by sugarcane mealybugs. "." How did those mealybugs find out that I was planting sugar'-" cane? And how did they find . their way through miles of trackless suburbia to a small'" backyard plot. It's uncanny, that's what it is;.;;; Uncanny and eerie and fright'- . ening. But something has just happened that makes me feel a'.'J little better about the whole thing- ' "" 'Z'. The U. S. Agriculture Depart- . ment reports that its scientists have discovered what it is thaC corn earworms like about corn. In other words, they have ex 1 - tracted the substance that makes corn appetizing to ear- •• worms. When it is spread on fiber paper, the earworms will eat the paper as eagerly as they eat corn. ( End Of Earworm Once the substance has been identified chemically, the next ,step will be to produce it syn- Ithetically. Then they will have the earworm where they want it. The stuff will be smeared on poisoned bait in the expectation that earworms will eat that and leave the' corn alone. Maybe so, but this strikes me as being an unimaginative and inefficient application of an obviously brilliant piece of research. My experience as a victory gardener convinces me that the next step should be to find, the substance that makes corn appetizing to human beings." Onoe it has been isolated, identified and produced synthetically, we could buy it in a jar, spread' in on crackers or; something, and enjoy it as ••» much as we would fresh corn.. That would solve the earworm problem in a jiffy.-Let ~ the earworms have the corn. Who needs it? I In 1889, Washington became the 42nd state to join the union. . . In 1918, World War I officially ended. In 1933, the first "great black blizzard" swept over the Great Plains, leaving dust covered • devastation and terror • in its wake.'? i . „ In 1957, Jamaica became the first British West India colony : to achieve internal self govern*-.
