LONDON, September 11. Dr.

which hns crented Immense Interest'
In India namely, me remains oi a
great Uiiddhlst pagodn, Including it

ashes of tho Huddha,
lliucn Tsang, tho famous Chinese
traveler of the seventh century A.
I), described a wonderful pagoda and
monastery which stood in the capital
city of Kntshka, the early Huddhtst
Kniporor, nnd enshrined the sucred
remains nf the Huddha. Half u mile
from I'cshnwar, nnd thirty feet be
low tlio present surface, Dr. Spoon
cr has found tho vestiges of the great
building, lost to human sight for
over 1000 years. ,
In the smaller of two mounds Dr.
Spooncr found the rcmnlns nf u pa
goda, soma 285 feet across. Its most
Interesting 'portion was n stono bur
ial chamber, tho roof of which had
fallen In, damaging u heavy green
moldered bronze casket containing
the treasure. Tho casket, seven In
ches high by flvo ucross. Is decorat
ed with figures of u seated, Iluddhn
nnd worshippers, a standing Prlnco
und others, tho sacred lotus design,
and Inscriptions in the .Khnroshthi

that the finders ns )et have made

The bottom of tho bronze case was

Uiiddhlst tradition asserts that tho
remains of the founder were distri
buted among vuilous pultons and

"I wouldn't feel nt homo In any

Religion Is this octogenarian's nn
tural element, as water Is a duck's
or nlr.ls n hlid's.
"I was the smallest wirt of a bov
when I nceotiled tho Dlblo ns my

How did thu-llllilc Intend that I

things 1 learned was that God novnr
Intended I should eat meat. 1 was
Just n small boy, but I mndo ftp my

Mr. Clubb would question the elll
cacy of vegetarianism nt least as

merely piactlco vegetarianism. Ho
wanted to pi each it us well, So awny
back In the 70s ho militated with the

says Mr. Clubb, "Is orthodox. Hut
Just as thn ll.iptlst Church lays Its
special bliess upon Immorslun, so tho
lllblo Christian Church Is emphatic
in the matter ot vegetarianism. It
Is our doctrine, our dogma and our
creed not to cat meat.
"Tho church was found on tho
woid of God. Wo first accepted God's
word purely ns a matter of faith.
And now come all tho physicians
and the physeolngtsts and confirm
our belief. That meat is not food
Is now a scientific fact." x
