J New York Times Service NEW YORK-After nearly lour years of renewed efforts to find the scientifically priceless fossil remains of Peking Man, which were lost during the Japanese invasion of China in World War II, the bones of that extinct race of men, if they still exist intact, remain as hidden as ever. Although the efforts of scientists, philanthropists offering huge rewards, F.B.I. agents, museum officials in several countries, military personnel and others have elicited hundreds of purported and sometimes tantalizing leads, not one has led to the rediscovery of a single fossil. The bones, first dug up in 1926 near Peking, represented an early form of human being who lived in Asia about half a million years ago. All that scientists have left to study are some plaster casts of the original bones. Although the Peking Man casts lack much of the surface detail of the originals and are therefore not often adequate for study, they have been regarded as valuable and kept well protected. Last Friday, however, the casts of three partial skulls were removed-from a vault at the American Museum of Natural History here and put on display in a small exhibit that describes their ex- cavation, scientific value and some aspects of the recent search for the originals. The exhibit will remain for several months. Dr. Harry L. Shapiro, curator emeritus of anthropology at the museum, an authority on Peking Man and a leader in the search for the fossils, conceded that many of fhe clues that once appeared promising have fail- ed to locate the fossils. "This whole thing has taken a lot of curious twists and Shapiro said. "We've had people claiming to know something about the fossils or even saying they had them in their possession but every time we try to track it down, we get nowhere." The mystery began in 1941 when a German scientist named Franz Weidenreich, an early student of Peking Man, had possession of the bones at the Peking Union Medical College. With a Japanese in- vasion imminent, Weidenreich attempted to smuggle the bones out of China to some safe part of the world. Afraid to make the venture himself, Weidenreich took only plaster casts and left the originals for the U.S. Marines to ship 'out of the country. The fossils were packed and prepared for shipment by Chinese and American of1 ficials at the medical school. At least two boxes of bones were delivered to the Marines stationed in Peking for ship- ment by train to Camp Holcomb, a marine base near Pardons no good OTTAWA (CP) Senators learned with some surprise Tuesday that pardons granted to erase criminal records do not have much effect. Officials of the National Parole Board told the Senate legal and .constitutional af- fairs committee that credit agencies and local police forces are not bound to seal off their records of criminal convictions despite a pardon. "Is there any- real said Senator Keith Laird (L "I can't see that the pardon does any good at all." Pardons were established in 1970 under the Criminal Records Act. Persons with a criminal conviction can apply alter a period of time varying from two to five years to have their record expunged. If an investigation shows they have mended their ways, a pardon may be granted by the parole board and their record is sealed. However, prospective employers and others interested in the person's background can find out about the conviction from credit agencies and local police forces because the act only binds federal agencies, including the RCMP. the port of Chingwangtao, where they were to await an American freighter. That much had been known for years, and most anthropologists had resigned themselves to accepting one or another of the conflicting theories as to where the boxes went astray as the war con- fused the subsequent course of events in China. Weidenreich's widow later gave the casts to Shapiro who turned them over to the museum. There the matter rested until 1971 when two former Marines who had been stationed at Camp Holcomb told Shapiro that they had received the boxes of fossils but then stored them with various people in the nearby city of Tientsin when they feared capture by the Japan- ese. With that news Shapiro had hopes that the fossils might still be in Tientsin. He wrote an article about the mystery and the new clues in his museum's magazine, Natural History.
