MARCH 23 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVE ARABS GUARDING SECRETS OF CITY Frenchman Says Plane Was Fired an Over Lost Sheba Capital. PARIS, March 23. {.Pi--Fierce Arabs are believed by Andre Mal- raux, French explorer, to be guarding the secrets of the rich lost metropolis of the queen of Sheba's reign against modern exploration. Malraux, who with his pilot. Captain Corniglion Molinier, returned here yesterday, is sure they found the "Paris" of the glamorous Sheba in a cluster of ruined towers and temples on the southwestern edge of the Ruba-el-Khali desert, which he identified as the city of Naith. The possibility that immensely valuable archaeological treasurers--·· including the tomb of the queen and her dynasty--lie buried in the sandy waste is seen by Malraux, author and archaeologist. Arabs Fire on Plane. "The Arab nomads who fired upon our plane when we flew over the city must be driven off, however, before exploration will be possible," Malraux said. "Further research must await British pacification of the region." "Until the desert is explored the exact location of the dead city cannot be fixed," said Malraux, adding "we were unable to take the longitude and latitude of the spot which %ve reached after five hours of flying almost due north from Djibouti, French Somaliland." South of Jerusalem. (In their report on the flight March 8 to the French air ministry, the airmen indicated the city was about 1,000 miles southeast of Jerusalem. They had headquarters at Djibouti.) Exhibiting photographs taken at ?. height of a thousand feet over the legendary city, Malraux pointed out 20 temples and towers whose windowless walls and setback architecture like modern skyscrapers rising above the lower houses further convinced him the city dates to the time of the famous queen. The city, he said, is surrounded by the ruins of a double wall outside which are pitched the tents of hostile nomads who fired upon their plane as it spiraled low for a better view. See Puffs of Smoke. 'Our plane was not touched by bullets, but we plainly saw puffs of smoke from their rifles, 1 ' Mal- raux said. The city is believed by Malraux to have been a great clearing center for camel caravans bearing goods of ancient India from the coast of the Arabian sea to Jerusalem. He ts that the queen's visit to *!, as described in the Bible, may haye been for an economic conference after her prime minister failed to make a trade agreement, for there was evidence that Jews later became more prominent in Sheba's commerce.
