'Haunted' Valley Yields Many Plants Unknown to Science By JOSEPH U MVI.F.R (United I'resi Staff Camwpondent} WASHINGTON, Oct. ft. (UP) — A 41-year-old botanist hat graved the werewolves and ghosts f.f a haunted Caribbean valley — which only tu'o other white men ever saw — nrid has brought back a host of plants new to science. Some of these plants, Conrad V. Morton said yesterday, may prove of Interest to medicine. "The natives use them for medical purposes, and they ale aalrt to be very efficacious," Morton reported. Morton, a member of the Srnltii- sonlan Institute staff, jpent three months in what the Negro i.atlvrs of St. Vincent In the Lesser Antilles call the "Place of the Werewolves." St. Vincent Is a tiny British l.ih West of Barbados and North of Trinidad. The "Place of the Werewolves." considered taboo by most of the natives, la a high valley surrounded by a 3,000-foot water- fa* It Is, the Smithsonian nald, "ex- eremely difficult or access." Ignoring native legend* of Ihe horrible fnte awaiting hiinian beings who violate the haunted valley's nge-ohl solitude, Morton there Is popular demand for it and appreciation of Its benefits. Crockett .said that communities with good medical service usually j appear prosperous with productive ! farms mul thrifty people. \ Dr. Edgar Grccnr, president-elect i of the Medical Association of Georgia, said that a nmjor task In furtherance of public health is education. scrambled over the guardian ridge He found himself in what the Smithsonian described as "a dense tropical rain forest of tall, vine- tangled hard'voods In whose branches perched the brilliant blue and yellow St. Vincent parrots which live only on this Island." What Morton s«w was "a scene not essentially different from what would have been found before man entered this part of the world." The Smithsonian said only two other white men had been In the valley, and added tliat il.i existence bccnme generally known only because a Rovcrnmcnt on^lncer once visited It on a surveying mission. Morton made (hr arduous climb Into the valley without mishap "except for falling oncn and break- Ing my glasses" — and explored it thoroughly. ' He brought back more than 5,000 specimens, of the. valley's rank vegetation. Including man mosses. ferns anri flowering plants. II will take a year or more to sort and classify them. Their collector believes many are "undoubtedly new." But Morton brought back no or- cWd«, new or old to botany, because their exportation IB forbidden. Nor was he permitted to acquire a St. Vincent .parrot. "I was told," he said, "that only the King-of England could lake a parrot out." Morton also came back without any werewolves. The only animal native to the Island, he said, is the Agouti — a wholly unfearsome rodent nbovlt the size of a rabbit Gov. Lancy Appoints Hew Jlth District Chancellor LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Ort. 8.
