The scene of the excavations carried on last winter is about thirty miles south of ASyUL This place was the capital of a district said to have been Important In the dark ages of the seventh and eleventh dynasties, when its princes cut vast tombs In the cliffs of theNlle. The main result of the excavations has been In. clearing the period between the sixth and eleventh dynasties.

"The figures of men and animals were treated In cubist fashion and re- duced to square angles, and the fancy ran on labyrtathe devices. There are indications that the square patterns be. long rather to the Western tribes, while the round buttons with animal figures come item the Euphrates. People of these regions poured Into Egypt. and though they adopted much that they found tlere, they kept up their original styles of ornament unaltered. "A surprising discovery came from a pot buried In the open ground. It con. talned a bundle of rags. In which was a papyrus book of the gospel of St. John. This is a Coptic of the earliest style, being between that of the two foundations of Biblical manuscripts. the Vatican and Sinaltlc codices. Much of It is in perfect condition. and, though It had been roughly doubled up, but little Is lost. This differs from the receipted Coptic text (Sahldlc) and will be decisive as to the nature of the Greek text first accepted In Egypt. Another Historical Result. ?All the work has been directed by Mr. Brunton, assisted by other st-u. dents, and It is hoped at an early date to work at this and other sites with a large staff.

An even half-dozen officers, three army and three navy men, comprise the concil, officially termed the joint board. Appointments are all ex-of- flclo. the detail of an officer to a cer- tain bureau carrying with It member- ship on the board. The present or- ganization Includes Gen. John J. Pershing. chief of staff; MaJ. Gen. John L. Hines. deputy chief and the head of tile army war plane division. and Brig. Gen. Briant H. Wells. for the land forces, and the chief of naval operations, Admiral E. W. Eberle; the dlrector of war plans of the envy, Rear Admiral W. R. Shoemalr, and the assistant chief of operations, Rear Admiral R. H. Jackson. for the navy. To this board is finally referred every major problem, involving the national security, and all Items of In- formation and all rumors which may have a remote bearing upon the na- tiona! defense. The new organize- super-council through an order which requires its recommend'ation to be re- ferred to the higher trib;d. A simi- lar restriction upon the Joliet muni- tions hoard, composed of the assistant secretaries of war and navy, brings this agency of defense under the same directing control. A glimpse of the scope of the new plan is given in the following partial llst of subjects recently presented for the consideration of the board: Function and missions of the army, navy and marine corps. Policy relative to development of aircraft In the army and navy. Policy relative to uses of rtgid air- ships by the army and navy. Defense plans for sections of the coast. Courses of Instruction. army war college and naval war college. Experiments in bombing naval ves- sels from aircraft. Censorship and control of communi- cations in war. Coal and fuel oil supply and stor- age. Man-power available for military and naval purposes. Six Army Planes to OME time in the early summer of 1924, four or possibly six army airplanes will hop off from Boiling field. Washington, and turn their noses to the west. Be- fore their pilots again glimpse the na- tion's capital, they will have traveled 30.000 miles, crossed two oceans and a score of countries and en- circled the globe in the air for the first time in the world's history. Such is the picture In the minds of officials at McCook field at Dayton, O, who, under the direction of army air service headquarters at Washing- ton, are making plans for the first 'round the world aerial cruise. The flight, designed lImarlly to demonstrate the ability of planes to operate away from their regular sup- ply bases during wartimes, will be made In comparatively short Jumps. The distance between most of the sta- tions will be 500 miles or less As lald out at present, the route to be taken would not necessitate any sustained fight over open water.

"Unrest" in Our LTHOUGH political activities 4n the Philippine islands and In Porto Rico have been marked In the last fiscal year, MaJ. Gen. Frank McIntyre, chief of the War department's bureau of insular affairs, said in his annual report that there was little Justifica- tion for reports that "a condition of unrest existed in these territories." "Political activity has been marked during the year," General McIntyre said. "botil in the Philippine Islands and in Porto Rico. This has led many people in the United States to believe that a condition of unrest existed in these territories, which is very far from the fact. Both Porto Rico and the Phllippln]kisiands have received during the h year greater benefits from tte Unlte. States than at any time In the past, and these henefivg have been more generally appreci- ated." "The year has been one of general prosperity," the general continued. "The first six months of the calendar ear 1.9'23 show a material betterment in foreign tra0a. For this period the Insular Possessions total shipment of domestic products was $67,109,679, of which $50.470,801" came tO the United States: the im- ports were $41,TTfl,348. of which $24,- 106.133 cpme from the United States. Speaking of. tile economic situation In Porto Rico. the report sald: "The economic situation In Porto Rico is, compared to former years, ex- cellent. This by no means implies that the serious economic problem resulting from the everpopulatlon has been even partially solved, so that this continues to be the one pressing problem In Por- to Rico. This would be partially met if the shipping lines between the United States and Porto Rlco had adequate passenger facilities, "Owing to the great liberality with which Porto Rico has been treated by congress in an economic way, the rev- enues of the Island have In recent years materially increased. The burget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1923, was based ou estimated rev- enues of $12,000,000. Z*lls Is about four times the revenues of 15 years ago and a little less than three times what they were ten years ago." Great Waste of Natural Gas and Oil OSSES of natural gas and oil, through flooding, seepage, waste and negligence In the various fields in the United State& have been enormous, according to statements of the Interior department. based upon a recent survey by the bureau of mines. While the oll and gas industry has progressed steadily and has been prac- tically revolutionized during the 64 years of Its existence, losses have run Into untold millions of feet of gas and gallons of oil fUel. Floodings of oil sands by water have damaged Irreparably entire oll and gas fields, the water trapping under- ground oil that prsbably never will be recovered. Water in an oll well so Increases lifting costs that many wells are abandoned before the normal re- covery of oil and gas in obtained. Although "bow-outs  and "wild wells" were formerly the greatest fac- tors in the loss. modern equipment has made it easier to muzzle the un- checked flows. TLe old practice of allowing "gushers" to waste oll and gas unchecked until the force either was stopped by cave-ins or decreased an appreciable amount, has been done away with. but not before millions of dollars' worth of the natural resources were lost. In the early days of the Cushing field In Oklahoma. in 1912 and 1913, it is estimated 100,000,000 feet of gas were wasted daily. In 1912 the total amount of gas con- sumed throughout the country was 662,052,000,000 cubic feet. while the loss of casing-head gas alone was es- timated at 141 OflO,O00,O00 feet in that year. It seems probable that from one-third to ol,'-half of all the gas produced Is wasted, the bureau's study showed. Production of msollne from nat- ural gas was s'rted -in 1904. and while the amoum recovered las In- creased by leaps and bounds yearly, It was estimated that since that year at least 2,500,000,6'a gallons of gaso- line bare been wasted. Plans .for an Aviation Reserve System LAN8 for an aviation reserve system which will train between 150 and 200 expert flyers an- nually are announced by the Navy department. Embodied in the program Is the baals of a new policy which, it is said. constitutes the first concrete step toward building the air service of the fleet' to the strength re- qulred by modern tactics. In each naval district "In which the public Is sufficiently interested," there will be organized and maintained a reserve aviation unit capable of turn- ing out a minimum of ten pilots a year. The newly estahlished reserve will he kept to a.fixed strength by this annual influx of ew blood. Admin- Istration and training will be under the commandant of the district In which the unit is located, additional units being established when in hl opinion the condltlons warrant. The commandant also will be au- thorised to obtain a suitable location ,for the hangam and, warehouses In which the pines and other egulp- meat,  be furnished lmreu ;j, of aeronautics, are to be kept. Equipment for standard reemrve training units will consist of twp training planes and 50 per cent of spare parts, and such additional air- craft and material "as the resources of the department can afford." "Owing to the shortage of funds," the announcement says, "the depart- ment must look to the civil authori- ties of the community In which the unit Is to be established for co-opera- tion and material assistance in obtain- ing those Items which current appro- priations cannot undertake. A reserve officer will he called to active duty for assignment to com- mand each unit, the shortage of per- sonnel precluding the use of regulars for this service. Students who enroll for flying will be given the rating of seamen, second class, and on comple- tlon of their course will be given 45 days' training under service cemdi- tlons with a naval squadron. "A slmllar policy relative to llg'hter- thai-air training of reservists will be ! 00uality Cars at . Quantity Chevrolet ow leads all high-grade cars tm number sold.
