the home of Harmon Blennftrhass'ett,

Burr Visited Island.
It was there that Aaron Burr in 1806,
Just out of offlce as Vice President of
the United States, met Blennerlinssett
and Interested him in a scheme for
creating an empire In the West
Blennerhasset t, tired of scholarly se
clusion at his retreat, joined the con

e-fylsions for an expedition nnd traveled
with Burr in the South and West at
: tempted to raise a following.
But disaster soon overtook the ex
pedition. In 1800 President Thomas
Jefferson issued a warning to citizens
against Burr's designs and demanded
;tnat he be brought to justice.
In December of the same year,
;CowieB Mead, secretary of the Missis
sippi territory, issued a proclamation

another. Finally, despairing ot re

George Neal, Jr., bought 140 acres on
the island when the Blennerhasset es

two finds will serve to link definitely
the civilization of the ancient Incas of
the Andes with a contemporary Indo
Iranlan culture, via a trans-Pacific
bridge of islands or possibly the fa
bled continent of Mu of which Easter
Is the sole remaining speck.
Rodriguez explained further that leg
ends of the Polynesians now on the
island have it that the ancient race
was wiped out by a cataclysmic erup

Roroka and Rnna Kao.

of being In love, lie says, with a manl
festation of Increased blood action, but
the real Impulses of the emotions of
courtship, marriage and love coma

Even the Increased heart action, he
says, is probably due only to the In
creased secretions of the pituitary
gland, and this Is what has caused the

Secret of Easter Island Is Be
San Francisco. Few who boarded
the little Chilean naval tanker Malpo
after her arrival from Valparaiso on
an annual training cruise realized that
her drab outline probably contains the
long-sought secret of Easter Island,
lonely volcanic islet 2,000 miles west
The Malpo made a six-day stop at
Easter Island en route north, and by
a rare stroke of fortune a group of
her officers, found, they believe, what
arcbeologlsts have been searching for
the past century graves and remains
of the ancient race that dwelt there

The ancient cemetery was found
atop the crater of Rana Roroka, sa

Images, or Mohais which ring the
southeast side of the Island.
The Malpo's officers brought aboard
several skulls, which are being care
fully preserved for transport to Chile.
Both Lieut. Exequlel Rodriguez, an
expert on Easter Island lore, and the
ship's surgeons, Dr. Hugo Vicuna, de
clare the skulls are those of a race
entirely removed from the 382 Poly
nesians now living on the Island.
Rodriguez also disclosed that in the
past few months a French expedition,
which has been excavating on Easter,
found Inscription rocks with ideographs
almost Identical to the similar picture
language of a contemporary Indo civi
lization of southern Asia.
