Inscription on Clay
Cylinders in Collection
at Yale Deciphered
| New Haven, Conn., March 27.—In
scriptions on clay cylinders in the
Babylonian collection at Yale Univer
sity, have been deciphered, it was an
nounced to-day and much information
for students of Biblical chronology
has been obtained.
One cylinder inscribed for Nebuch
adnezzar, who reigned B. C. 6J6 to
561, recounts his deeds with reference
to the restoration and enlargement
of the walls and moats of Babylon
and of temples and sanctuaries there
abouts. He records the rebuilding of
Marchuk, recognized as the ancient
tower of Babel of the Book of Genesis.
Nebuchadnezzar adds, according to
the translation: "I sought and found
the foundation stone of the temple of
Lugal-Marada, my deity, and laid it
upon the foundation stone of Naram-
Sin, King, my ancient ancestor." This
ancestor lived 3,000 years before
Nebuchadnezzar. Naram-Sin was the
builder of Babylon and perhaps the
greatest builder of all history.
The Nebuchadnezzar cylinder was
found near Nippur on the Euphrates.
Efforts Made to Capture
Smugglers of Chinese
San Francisco, March 27.—A boat

in Monterey bay, and this craft is be
ing overhauled here for the patroling
of San Francisco bay and the harbor
entrance. The Calypso is equipped
with a 7 5-horse power engine capable
of driving her at a speed far in excess
of that of the old revenue boats. She
draws only three feet of water.

Sunbuy, Pa., March 27.—Attracted

day, Forest Messimer leaped from the
window of a bridge tollhouse, and,
