DID STRANG!; PEOPLE LIVE UNDER SITE OF LOS ANGELES 5000 YEARS AGO? An amazing labyrinth of underground passages and caverns hundreds of feet below the surface of Fort Moore Hill is revealed in maps all rights to which have been reservedprepared by O. Warren Shufelt, local mining engineer, who explains his topographical endeavors as being based on result obtained from a radio X-ray perfected by him. In this elaborate system of tunnels and rooms, according to a legend furnished Shufelt by an Indian authority, a tribe of human beings called the Lizard People, lived, 8000 years ago. The network of tunnels formed what Indians call the lost Lizard City, according to Shufelt and the legend. Gold tablets on which an written the origin of the " human race and other priceless document are to be found in the tunnels, according to the legend. Shufelt declares his radio X-ray has located the gold. The engineer has dug a shaft 250 feet deep on North Hill street, overlooking North Broadway, Sunset and Spring street, and intends to dig to 1000 feet in an effort to strike the lost city.

C-- 2- j 1 SIGNALS OPPOSED i -m. m - LV il TRACES OF CATACOMB CITY OF LIZARD PEOPLE SOUGHT (Continued from First Page) the path being "several hundred miles wide." The city underground was dug as a means of escaping future fires. The lost city, dug with powerful chemicals by the Lizard People instead of pick and shovel, was drained into the ocean, where its tunnels began, according to the legend. The tide passing dally in and out of the lower tunnel portals and forcing air into the upper tunnels, provided ventilation and "cleansed and sanitized the lower tunnels," the legend states. Large rooms in the dome of the hills above the city of labyrinths housed 1000 families "in the manner of tall buildings' and imperish able food supplies of the herb variety were stored in the catacombs to provide sustenance for the lizard folk for great lengths of time as the next fire swept over the earth. CITY LAID OUT LIKE LIZARD The Lizard People, the legend has it, regarded the lizard as the symbol of long life. Their city is laid out like a lizard, according to the legend, its tall to the southwest, far below Fifth and Hope street, its head to the northeast, at Lookout and Marda streets. The city's key room is situated directly under South Broadway, near Second street, according to Shufelt and the legend. This key room is the directory to a0 parts of the city and to all record tablets, the legend states. All records were kept on gold tablets, four feet long and fourteen inches wide. On these tablets of gold, gold having been the symbol of life to the legendary Lizard People, will be found the recorded history of the Mayans and on one particular tab let, the southwest corner of which will be missing, is to be found the "record of the origin of the human race." TABLETS PHOTOGRAPHED Shufelt stated he has taken "X-ray pictures" of thirty-seven such tablets, three of which have their southwest corners cut off. "My radio X-ray pictures of tunnels and rooms, which are subsurface voids, and of gold pictures with perfect corners, sides and ends, are scientific proof of their existence," Shufelt said. "However, the legendary story must remain speculative until unearthed by excavation." The Lizard People, according to Macklln, were of a much higher type intellectually than modern human beings. The intellectual accomplishments of their 9-year-old Children were the equal of those of present day college graduates, he said. So greatly advanced scientifically were these people that, in addition to perfecting a chemical solution by which they bored underground without removing earth and rock, they also developed a cement far stronger and better than any in use in modern times with which they lined their tunnels and rooms. KILLS INCLOSE CITY Macklln said legendary advice to American Indians was to seek the lost city in an area within a chain of hills forming "the frog of a horse's hoot." The contour of hills surrounding this region forms such a design, substantiating Shufelt's findings, he said. Shufelt's radio device consists chiefly of a cylindrical glass case inside which a plummet attached to a copper wire held by the engineer sways continually, pointing, he asserts, toward minerals or tunnels below the surface of the ground, and then revolves when over the mineral Installation of trade signals at the intersection of Third street and Larchmont avenue is not warranted, according to a report from Deputy Polloe Chief SteckeL forwarded to the City Council by the Police Commission.
