FuD Lease Wires Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MAY 10 1960 Copy Paper ConOU of Two settonsSetloB No soften 1 Priceless i relics are missing By JOE ALEX MORRIS JR New York Herald News Service v CAIRO One of the greatest mysteries in Egypt today is not whether President Gamal Abdel Nasser will turn East or West but what happened to some 23 000 valuable Pharaonic relics now known to be missing from the Cairo Museum This is the number of pieces not found by Prof Selim Has san who was appointed last year to make the first complete inventory of the museums treas ures As a puzzle it rivals the Sphinxs inscrutable smile Prof Hassan and other ex perts believe that this incred ible number of missing relies mounted gradually over the years since 1958 when the first Egyptian museum was founded The collection has been moved twice since then as it grew and it was twice removed from the present museum to the relative safety of the basement during the two world wars Over the last century the opportunities have been great for those with sticky fingers particularly be cause until now no one knew ex actly what was in the museum LAST YEAR was a specially trying one for the people who run the Cairo Museum a 60 yearold massive Victorian relic itself which frowns out upon Lib eration Square in the heart oJ the city This touristic mecca oi Pharaonic lore suddenly found itself called to account for the accumulated sins of the past This curators nightmare be gan when a visitor noticed thai some valuable gold pieces saic to be among the most ancient money ever found were not in the display case where the cata logue said they should be This was followed by the discovery oJ the loss or theft of a g o 1 c sceptre from the tomb of King Tutankhamen who lived about 3300 years ago Of almost equal embarrass ment was the discovery of sev eral neglected crates full of val uable antiquities on t h e very grounds of the museum They were found by an employee who had gone to root out a stray dog which had broken into one of the treasure chests and turned it into a lowly doghouse THESE AND other factors caused a belated realization in government circles that they had only the vaguest idea what was stored and exhibited in this the richest repository of ancienl Egyptian relics Accordingly they called 68yearold Prof Hassman out of retirement to make the first scientific survey of what they have or do not have That was six months ago anc now Prof Hassan has finished his job He didnt find any of the missing relics as was hoped But he did discover that alto gether some 23000 pieces are missing There may be even more as he only had a chance to check on some 19500 of an estimated 80000 relics stored in the museums cavernous base ment The basement by itself is a source of wonder It is likely to prove the richast find o Egyptian antiquities For past decades new hauls from the archeological sites have been piled helterskelter into its sub terranean depths without ful registration and todayno body knows for sure what is there Hassan said that in its dim reaches are staked some 500 crates full of mummies statues etc THE BASEMENT is now sealed off but inquiring Prof Hassan had a chance to look at perhaps a fourth of t h e total number of pieces stored there during his inventory He es timated it would take him an other five months to do a care ful inventory of its treasures He declined to give specific details of what he found but he did say that some of the antiqui ties gathering dust there were more beautiful than some ex hibits upstairs arge appro ach DEMONSTRATION IN PEIPING Carrying ban ners and placards crowds raise clenched fists in Peiping during a demonstration described by the
