They were the first men in living or written memory to visit it. And. According to scientific conjecture May have been the first men to have Ever touched it soil. The Quot Island is the 275-acre top of a Shaft that rises from the Bottom of grand Canyon whose Walls Are almost As smoothly perpendicular As the sides of a column this Shaft was formed by the grinding currents of the Colorado River As it dug out the Gigantic grand Canyon. It is called Shiva Temple. Four scientists and five packers climbed the Walls. Thursday night All but two returned for More supplies.

The party did not take a radio to the top. The climb was to Steep and so dangerous that burdens bad to be kept to a minimum. Included in the party was Walter a. Wood jr., of the american geographical society who was one of those who returned to the Camp. He thought he might Fly Over the Quot Island Friday and Parachute a radio scientific equipment food and water Down to Anthony and Mckee. Tillotson a radio message reflected the excitement that has agitated naturalists during All the years they have been discussing the possibilities of Shiva Temple. Several months ago Anthony Mckee and Tillotson determined to Settle the accumulated conjectures of Many scientists by climbing the Walls and exploring the Island regardless of the danger. It is believed with reasonable Assurance of accuracy that the Colorado River first started cutting the land away from the Island at the end of the glacial age approximately 35,000 years ago. Whatever animal life got to the Island or was on the Island was isolated from its exact counterpoints in the surrounding country. For Hundy eds of years while the Canyon got deeper and deeper animals were free to go Back and Forth from the Eland to the Mainland at last the depth increased the time arrived when the Walls were so High and so sheer that crossing was no longer possible and whatever animals had established themselves on the Island we re permanently isolated. This occurred scientists estimate at a minimum of 20.000 years ago. This Means if the Basic premise of scientific conjecture is proven to be Correct a that the Island has been completely isolated a that species of animals have developed on the Island absolutely independently of the species of on the Mainland it Means that the Island might contain species of All animals entirely unique but with a common ancestry with the Rabbit the Fox and the wild cat of the Mainland. Charles Darwin originator of the theory of evolution found extraordinary species on oceanic islands which obviously shared a common ancestry with Well known species but had developed special characteristics by having existed in isolation for thousand of years. Darwin argued that evolution represented a survival of the fittest that in each generation the individual Best adapted to live in Bis circumstances would survive to produce offspring which would in Herlt and even improve his parti Cular adaptability which in time would change the Structure and the habits of the entire specie. This he called natural adaptation and it is now generally accepted As fact.

Organize for Long costly War copyright 1937 by United pre banking a China a 400,-000,000 inhabitants organized Friday for a Long costly War with Japan. Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek dictator of the general government apparently having unified the nation for the first time in recent history started a Quot Liberty loan subscription Campaign for $145,000,000, similar to that which the United states used 20 years ago to support her participation in the world War.
