Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saturday, S.pHmb.r 2, 1972 THE IFTrWRIDGE HEXAlfi 15 Offers reward for inf ormation CHICAGO fAP) An in- vestment banker says he has a purporting to show some of the remains o( the prehistoric Peking Man, missing from China since the Second World War. Christopher Janus offered a reward for information leading to tlxj discovery of the highly-prized fossils aiier a recent trip to China. He said in an interview Thursday that an anonymous New York woman sent him the photo after a series of clandestine communications. An anthropologist at the Field Museum of Natural His- tory studied the photo under magnification and said If the skull is a legitimate it is that of the Peking generic term for a collection of 40 skulls, 150 teeth ar.d nu- merous bones that date man back to two million years. Janus said the woman wants for the fossils if they are authentic, "money should be no prob- lem." LIKE CROWN JEWELS "The Peking Man is liko the crown jewels to the Chi- said Janus who will make a return trip to China in October. "I want to find out if this is a hoax." "If it's not, I want to present those fossils to the Chinese when I return." Janus said he has no way of making contact with the woman. She must make the next move. He said she arranged a meeting with him June 28 at Empire State Building Observatory but departed hurriedly after she noticed an apparent tourist taking pic- Lures in their direction. Janus said that after not hearing from the woman, placed a two-line advertise- ment in the New York Times asking the "Empire State Ob- servatory Woman" to tele- phone him. When she did, two days later, Janus persuaded her to send a copy of the photo- graph in an initial attempt to verify Iter story. The woman told Janus her husband, a U.S. marine in China, left her a footlocker containing the fossils at his death. Janus said he has also learned tliat the fossils wero packed in footlockers and given to marines at the U.S. legation in Peking to protect them from the invading Japa- nese in 1941. The marines and the fossils were captured.

Highivay job goes ahead CALGARY (CP) Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne said here public hearings won't be necessary to discuss con- struction of the Kananaskis Highway.
