Cl:i. ,U« — A University of Georgia professor claims lo have solved the greatest Sherlock Holmes mystery of all. Pope Hill, Sr., a slim, graying associate professor of mathematics who lm.s studied the Holmes studies for n years, said the literiiry world for 00 years lias been the victim of n hrax perpetrated by the Inte Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Creator o( the muster detective of Haxcr Street. Scholars have known for years thai nr, WiUson's accounts of the great dcduccr's cases are shot through with mistakes—wrong clntes, limes and places; impossible situations. They cive varying reasons, but most of them lay the mistake.? to carelessness by the author. But Hill believes the truth will t;c disclosed v.'hen a document left l>y Doyle is opened in England soon. "The solution." Hill said, "is very simple. The errors urn Intentional. Krrors IMIbrruir "lie WHS creating a character with accurate powers of observation. : wlio decried the lack of observation in others. To prove his point that, people do not observe, he pill simple ami obvious errors by wholesale into the stories. "Coniin Doyle tried lo fool the world and lie succeeded beyond his expectations. No wonder lie put, this statement into the mouth of Holmes: "•Nothing is so deceptive us an obvious fact 1 ." He rejects the "careless" theory of Christopher Morley and others j with an example. Only five limes In the ToO.CCO-word saga Is the color of Holmes' eyes given, and 2j years intervene b.'lween the first time and the last, he said, "yet every time thcl rcolor Is given as gray." I>a(es Scrambled On the other hand, in "The Sign of the Pour," the date is Riven ns early July in one place, as September In another, and as "a spring evening" in a third. Doyle wa.s a doctor. Yet he gives Holmes the symptoms of a morphine addict and calls him a cocaine user. He knew American money, yet he referred to an American "Hold dollar." The idea of the Holmes deception. Hill said, probably came from Edgar Allen Poe's story, "The Purloined Letter." In that case, Parisian police searched an apartment Inch by inch for an important letter, and failed to finti it because It was right belorc their eyes, Documents Uncovered His long years of study led Mill to Ihe conviction tlml somewhere, somehow. Doyle must have written a secret document to explain Ihe "substructure worked out with so much time and thought." Pultln;! himself In the milhor's place. Hill became certain-that sucli a document hud been written, and then hidden until some luture date. Recently a new find of Doyle papers wns revealed. j\ cache Includ- Ini; u phiy, left in Doyle's town bank vault. Among the papers was one culled "some personalia ub.wt Mr. Sherlock Holmes." The manuscripts have been turned over by thc Doyle family to the author's biographer. John Dlcksou Carr, mysiciy writer. Hill said Adrian c'otinii Doyle speaks of the "pcrsonullu" us "u unique document that will explode the old myths about Conun Doyle and Sherlock Holmes." Doyle hits been quoted as "Ilied of mlsrcpre- Kontstlons about my lather." Hill says Ilial means the family is tired PACK THIRTEEN .
