IN NEW PARK Four Men Blast Mountain· side for Silver Cache Shown on Old Map. By the Associated Press. NEW YORK. November 9—A fortune In silver lies buried deep Under the rocks of Letterrock Moun tain in Palisades Interstate Park, if you believe a yellowed letter in the J. P. Morgan library. MaJ. William A. Welch, general manager of the park, says he doesn't believe there is "a dime's worth" there, but hie opinion wasn't shared by four men who blasted away for months at the side of the mountain seeking burled treasure. Existence of the letter was brought to light by Maj. Welch yesterday when he disclosed the arrest of the four men after their dynamite blasts had mystified park rangers for many months. Large holes had been found blasted in the mountainside, but it was not until the four treasure seekers were discovered with dynamite and blasting tools that the rangers knew who was responsible. The four men said they had been hired to search for a great hoard of silver bars and dollars and that the secret of how to reach it came out of a faded map in the Morgan library. Maj. Welch said he had a copy of this document, dated about 1690, In which vague direction» are given how to follow a brook up the mountain "until you come to some large rocki." Under them, say the directions, is a mine containing bars of silver and two barrels of dollars. Ma J. Welch eaid the four men were released after paying Unes of $25 each for defacing State property and carry ing explosives without a permit. He said they refused to say who hired them to dig for the treasure, but each carried a curious contract binding them to turn over whatever treasure they found to five men whose names were signed to the documents. Park authorities did not find the five men. Barred From Dances. Hungary hfs banned unaccom panied girls under 17 from public dances. DATA SHOW 1332 DEPRESSION'S LOW Survey Reveals Major Index Numbers Hit Bottom That Summer. Br the Associated Press. NEW YORK, November 9.—The darkest hour of the deprewion occur red nearly two and a half years ago, the National Industrial Conference Board says In a spec 1*1 analysis Is sued yesterday. It was In July, 1932, that major In dex numbers hit bottom, and the sur vey says: "Examination of these (business Index) curves answers the question as to when the low point of the depression was actually reached." To prove thè point, the board cites four indicators—industrial production as measured by the Federal Reserve Board, car loadings as reported by the American Railway Association, dollar value of department store sales com piled by the Federal Reserve Board and the level of common stock prices computed by Standard Statistics Co. In each of these measuring sticks, .with the exception of freight car loadings, the low point came In the Summer of 1932. It Is pointed out that the lowest points were not in March of 1933 except in car loadings. Furthermore, It is shown by the board that In five out of six major countries the bottom of the depression came In 1932. The following table shows Index numbers of Industrial production with the low points of 1932 and 1933: 1932. 1033. Montb Index. Month. Index. United State·.
