Associated Press Writer TEL AVIV AP Joshua cheated The walls of Biblical Jericho came tumbling down after he blew his trumpet all hed undermined them first Thats what Dr Jacob Feld a New York consultant engineer on the causes of structural fail ure thinks Feld found signs the founda tions had been dug away when lie first studied the walls of Jer icho in 1931 during an excava tion ofthe site the lower stones which must have been the foundations of the walls were tipped down ward and outward as though someone had undermined the wall from the outside Feld said during a recent visit here It was obvious someone had removed the earth under these stones from the outside of the wall What probably happened he believes is that ing an army of Israelites against the ly guessed that storming the walls would be costly and decided to use a little trickery He must have had some knowledge of soil mechanics and calculated that if his men undermined the walls the city couldbe taken virtually without a struggle So he set his diggers to work camethe precariously balanced walls But Feld adds This theory doesnt rule out the religious view that the event was an act of God The Almighty may have in the soft soil under the walls worked through Joshua whom To create a diversion he surrounded the city and had his priests blow their shofars rams horns every so often to distract attention Feld theo he directed Well however Joshua did it it made a great song On the seventh day when ev erything was ready the Is raelite got all his priests to blow their horns together extra loud seven times while his men gave a great shout And down SUNDAY The Carolina Young People Holy Association will convene at the Pentecostal Holy Churphr iayintown Saturday and Sunday November lifH and
