of the po ;,iblc candidacy of Pi'
Olin 'Sawyer-, surgeon and physician,
of Georgetown, to succeed Governor

Reports uiat nr. rawjcr rmra

for several weeks and Saturday
while visiting in Columbia. Dr
Sawyer admitted that lie would
like to be ftevernor, said his friends
are trying to Ret, him to make a
formal announcement, and refused
to deny that he will make the rare.
That Dr Sawyer's entrance in tin
race will change the entire complex
of the situation in 1930 Is appar
ent. The Balance of power, which
heretofore has been in the Piedmont
section, will shift to the coastal re

chief executive. Wilson G. Harvev.1
who Mireerdrd Robert A. Cooper
when the latter resigned to take
a place on lire federal Farm Loan
While ho has not yet made for
mal announcement of his candidacy,
it is practically assured that State
Senator R M Jefferies, ot Waiter
boro. will also seek eloction to
the governor's chair. Senator Jeff
eries Is a native of Gaffney, end
through family connections and
other contacts, will probably reel.,

date for governor in tlie person of

candidates. Solicitor Ira C. Black
jwood having already announced his
I candidacy. In Greenw ood. runu,r
has It that R K. MeCaslan. chnlr
Iman of the house ways and means
jcommittee, will make the race it
is alto rumored that Mr. McCaslan
may offer for lieutenant governor.
In Laurens county. Carroll 1>
Nance is a possible candidate, al
though he has announced that lie
is “through" with politics.
Over in Lancaster county it Is,
regarded cs a certainty that Roacn
f> Stewart, chairman ct the state
Democratic executive committee,
will seek the gubernatorial toga. C’.
F. Jones chairman of toe state
highway commission, a rUtren of
Lexington *"unty he.- men
tioned for governor . ct h••s re
peatedly denied that he will make
the race.
From present indications Colum
bia will furnish two candidates. A
F Lever, former congressman, and
Clin' T. Grrydcn, close friends of
Senator Cole L. Blrase and Gover
nor Richards.
Reports which drifted into Co
lumbia during the last week are to
the fctfert that Mr. Blackwood might j
make the race for congress again-,;
the incumbent. John J. McSwaui.
If the report is true, there will be
a three-cornered race in the fourth
district, as Olin D. Johnson, mem
ber of the Spartanbuic delegation
in the general assembly, is re
ported to be in the miming.
Governor Richards has made no
official statement in regard to hu
political ambitions. He has been
mentioned as a candidate to op
pose Congressman W. F. Stevenson
in the fifth district, but citizens j
in that section are of the opin
ion that the governor will seek, in
stead, to displace Senator Blease. i
It is considered by some of the ]
political-wise in South Carolina the
governor's break with Senator
lease, occasioned by a difference
of opinion in the matter of the
$65,000,000 road bond bill, is more
serious than it has appeared on j
the surface.

Depicts Cave Man
In “Family Life”
With Mother, Wife, Baby And, Shown In Habitation At
The Field Museum.
Chicago—The dim past of man
was visualized at the Field Museum
of National History, where a Hie?
size reconstruction of a cave man,
| his family and his habitation was
put on public exhibition.
Tne reconstruction represents one
of the earliest types of man, the ape
like Nrandertlinl of Mousterian man,
who lived In Western Europe do -
ing the last Glacial period. 50.000
years ago and more.
The group Is one of the results of
the recent Captain Marshal Field
archaeological expedition to Europe,
under the leadership of Henry Ford,
a member of the museum's anthro
pological staff.
In the work of the expedition and
the preparation of the group the
museum has had the cooperation of
leading anthropologists of England
and France. Including Prof. Sir Ar
thur Keith, president of the Royal
College of Surgeons, and Prof. G
Elliott-Smlth of Unhcrslty College.
London; Abbe Henri Breule and
Prof. Marcelhn Boule of Paris.
New York The Sculptor.
The designer and sculptor of the
group is Frederick Blaschke of Cold
Spring. N, Y., who accompanied the
expedition to Europe and has spent
more than two years on the wor!;.
With a painted background, the
sec nee represents ;n three di
mensions a .Neanderthal man's cave
at L.c Moustter, in the Dordogne
region of Southwest France.
The figures consist of a man
about 35 yenrs old, a boy about id,
a woman about 30. with a baby in
her arms, and an older woman
They have all been carefully re
constructed from measurements,
casts and models made of Neander
thal skulls and skeletons found Ir,
various localities of Europe.
The figure, are represented as eiir
gaged in occupations typical of their
tini" and stage of development.
The man, outside the entraaice of
the cave, lias just returned from
hunting. With one hand he grasps
the antlers of a reindeer, killed wi ll
a stone implement, red with blood,
in his other hand
me woman with the baby is on
her way out from the inner recesses
of tire cave. Near by the bov Is
gnawing hungrily on a bone. The
older woman is squatting beside a
fire cleaning fat from a skin.
Racial Lineaments Shown.
Special Neanderthal characteris
tics depicted include prominent and
continuous brow ridges extending
from temple to temple; short, thick
necks with heads thrown forward
; because of a peculiar construction
(of the spinal column which made
| erect standing impossible; broad,
j flat noses and bent knees, like a

The bodies were short and stout.
The hands were extremely large, the
arms relatively shorter than the legs
and the shin bones shorter than the
thigh bones.
f lie heads of these people rvere
proportionately large, and the sire
of their brains was not much below
that of modern man's, according to

The Alabaman monarch's friends
say he lacks the faculty of delegat

the country virtually single handed.
But if he governs Albania on a
one-man basis he has anything but
the appearance of a dictator. His
soft features, aquiline nose, delicate
mouth, blonde hair, tiny chestnut
moustache, striking dignity and re
served aristocratic air suggest rather
a French or Austrian nobleman who
never had to sear a hand or furrow
a brow by daily toil. Europe's new
