This summer the blonde audio-visual expert and archaeology doctoral candidate is leading an expedition, along v with her former history professor, Dr. Julian Nava,. to search off the. coast of southern Spain for the legendary continent believed to have sunk more than 11,000 years ago. Nearly 200 persons, including 40 college professors from the United States, England, Ireland and Spain, will take part in the exploration, sponsored by Pep- peatUne University, which will give six units of college credit to student participants. "After 12 years researching the common origins of mankind for my doctorate, I was disturbed by how many unknowns there are in history, such as languages we don't know the origins of," Mrs. Asher explains. "Then, during the big earthquake we had here two years ego, two things fell onto the floor at my house. One was a book about Atlantis, and the other was a Cretan goddess. "I thought to myself, I wonder if this is what I have been looking for?" Mrs. Asher said she had long been interested in the myths surrounding the lost continent. "Now, in Plato's Dialogues, he gives a complete description cf Atlantis and says it lies just beyond the Pillars of Hercules, which we know as Gibraltar and Tangiers," she related. I thought, Why not look in the exact spot where Plato Said it was?" Accordingly, Mrs. Asher made a trip last summer to Cadiz, Spain, and interviewed townspeople, divers and navy personnel about the undersea ruins off the Spanish coast, believed to date back at least 2,500 years. "People have known about these ruins for years," she says, "but up to now the Spanish coast has not permitted much underset exploration." Mrs. Asher felt confident that the ruins she could see N from the water surface were Atlan- tean cities. Plans Program "I decided then to bring a small summer program to Spain. I drew up a 100 -page course of study, because you can't just go to a university empty-handed and say I want to look for Atlantis. Pepperdine agreed immediately to accredit a program," she said. The Spanish government also agreed to cooperate. Mrs. Asher has recruited professors from various disciplines — anthropology, archaeology, geology, history, geography, linguistics, oceanography and parapsychology, to take part in the expedition. "Most people are going because of, the adventure," says [Nava, a history professor at California State University at Northridge and a member of the Los Angeles school board. "Some really believe,that Atlantis is there, and others think Earring Fun Making your own earrings can be fun and inexpensive. One style: Tiny colorful beads strung on wire that can be twisted into any shape. You can buy 14k gold wires for pierced ears and attach them to the inexpensive wire. READ THE WANT ADS!

Atlantis has always fascinated people." Nava says he hopes the group will at least "find traces of manmade objects. That In itself would be rather astounding. "I think we may find Roman, Greek, and maybe Phoenician underwater ruins," he says. "Maybe even evidence of volcanic or drastic geological upheaval. Atlantis was supposedly a highly civilized society, so if we found anything very com pleated, it would have to be from a pre-Gcnesis civiliza lion," he saJd. "We might even be able to reveal that the Atlantic Ocean Was not always underwater. That alone would blow the minds of geologists," he laughed, Nava and Mrs. Asher anticipate that whatever they find can be reconstructed on land. "Or," Mrs. Asher speculates, "even encased in a bubble. Someday we may well have underwater cities encased in bubbles. My mother and I have been joking about putting in the first McDonald's on Atlantis." Now she's reviewing applicants "of all ages from any walk of life, as long as they are high school graduates." The group flew to Spain July 9 for six weeks, living in a hotel in Cadiz, with transportation, rcorn and board and souba lessons and equipment included in the $2,830 tuition fee. ~f,*: "What we want is highly; educated amateurs," Nava^;says. "This is going to be a^rtnais- rance group of peoplSj^febme specialists and some iJJW* professionals. It's a happy inp, an adventure. X# "We'll give equal weight to all evidence, including intuition," Mrs. Asher say^i* "There's no reason it&Sfe all have to be academic;types. After all, it was a (tetrnan* businessman, Heinrich Schliemann, wandering around with'..i?Cmap and saying 'Dig here,' who discovered Troy," she says.
