Pyramids Live Up to Notices Number 88 EDITORS NOTEThis is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than scenic features By W EARL HALL pAlRO Egypt The Pyramids live up to advance and more But I cant say as much for the Sphinx From the standpoint of size it would be little more than a wart on George Wash ingtons nose atop Mt Rush S Dak But those pyramids are really breath taking The Big Three are so W EARL HALL enormous you have to see them from a distance and in perspective to sense tha the middle one called Cheops or the Great is the champ The other two are Chephren and My cerinus On the west bank of the Nile at the edge of the Sahara Deserts fringe area the ancient Giza wonder can be reached from downtown Cairo within a half hour by bus or taxi We arrivec just ahead of sunset Im told that as at the Taj Mahal moon light does something strange and wonderful to the Pyramids That experience must wait Ardent Salesman Natives with something to sell camel rides donkey rides knickknacks of various kinds descend upon the poor defense less tourist like the locusts of Biblical times The one word in our language least understood by them is NO No matter how you punctuate it they persist From Ambassador Raymond Hare my colleague and I learned we are the first American tour ists seen in these parts for sev eral months Its been off limits to British French while other Europeans of course are even scarcer It could be therefore that these venders at the Pyra mids regarded us a break in an extended famine Be it may I can report one more form of transportation in my experience background Ive ridden a camel I can rec ommend it on only one basis Its novel and it feels good when you stop doing it Unsolved Mysteries Two mysteries concerning the Pyramids remain unsolved so far as I am concerned One of these is HOW theywere built the other even more inscrutable one WHY The millions of stones hewn Egypt Mason Cityan Dies of Crash Injuries i A DEATH CAR John Shimer a passenger in the car in which Ed 78 117 6th N was fatally injured explains to Highway Patrolman Dick Hahn how the car flew through the air from the spot near the curve marked by a bystander at right background from nearby quarries are of uni form size Each one weighs in the vicinity of 10 tons They were quarried transported and put in place between and That was almost 50 centur ies ago It predated mans dis covery of the principle of t h e wheel if Im not mistaken I leave it to you to figure out how the task was accomplished even with tens of thousands oi slaves One theory is that a greal sand hill was developed as the pyramids higher grew and that when the last stone was in place a removal of sand was effected to reveal the finished product Own Theory If that theory doesnt suit you feel at liberty to dope out one of your own No matter what it is youre sure to have company Men have been trying down through the centuries to solve the riddle along with what it is that gives the nearby Sphinx such a worried look In my approach to the WHY of the thing Ive concluded that it was a case of man trying to be God to his contemporaries and to posterity The aim of the Pharaohs was to build a moun tain which would rival those pro duced by nature And I must report that this result was impressively achieved Im still ready to give to Ihese rcmnanls of a longlost civiliza tion a place among the alltime top savea manmade wonders Ike Mollet Issue Joint Communique
