The curious did relic was brought up from the depths of the Mediterranean by sponge fisher men on Easter Day, 1900. But it remained an object of curiosity in the Greek National Museum in Athens until it was identified this year by Dr. Price. It is a highly precise median! cal model of the earth, sun, moon and planets, fashioned by some un known 'craftsman about 65 B.C.— give or take 10 years. It includes an intricate and precise set of gears, made to be turned by means of a small crank, keeping every heavenly body in proper position. It is now too delicate to touch, Dr. Price said—for pieces continually break off. But looking care LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheba dies a little bit every day. And a piece of Ray Myers* heart goes with her. They're buddies, you know. Close as only a blind man and his dog can be. For three weeks the gray German shepherd has lived on will power and love. She goes right on working, guiding her master through the city hubbub. In Agony The scores of people who scurry past them at the little sidewalk stand where Myers sells novelties little know she's in agony from the cancer eating her intestines and throat. "She should have been put to sleep three weeks ago," sayd Morris Kaufman, a cafe owner, and a friend of the blind man. "The vet is trying to keep her alive until Ray gets a new dog." Sheba's not old.

This was one of the things arranged by Kaufman. Patrons Chip !n Kaufman also got a new room for Ray when he was evicted because of Sheba. And patrons of the cafe and employes of a large store nearby chipped in on expenses for the new dog and it's training. Sheba scarcely touches her food now. Each day she gets more gaunt and finds it harder to get to her feet. She gets pills three times a day, for the pain. She'll go to her well-earned rest just before the new dog enters her master's life, if she lives that long. For Ray it's a sad New Year's. But there's a silver lining. Even though he can't see them, friends have come out of nowhere to surround him with warmth. ROBERT ROBERT MITCHUM-MNER RICHARD MAY EG AN-BRUT IE!
