Philadelphia, Pa.—What the diseov
ever claims to be evidence older than
the Bilde by two or three thousand
-years, that woman had nothing to do
with the downfall of the human race,
was produced by the museum of the
. University of Pennsylvania in the

\ "Noah Ate the Apple."
The new book is the fourth in a
series depicting the religious life of
the Sumerians, a mysterious race, the
; origin of which is unknown, which was
finally swallowed up by the later Sem
itics. According to one of the flood sto
ries in the collection Noah ate the
forbidden fruit after he had been
saved from the deluge.
This salvation was accomplished, ac
cording to the Sumerian version, by a
woman deity. There is no mention of
S
\
any Eve in the story. Clay tablets
from which this and other stories are
taken are said to he at least one thou
sand years older than Babylonian tab

I 14,000 Years Before Christ.
I After the Sumerians had been ex
tinguished in their political power,
cording to Doctor Lnngdon. the Baby
lonians retained the language for ec
clesiastical purposes for many centu
ries, just as Latin is now used in the
Roman Catholic church.
The Sumerian records at the nniver
/ sity provide an apparent history of
mankind hack to 14 000 years before
Christ, but this is not considered ab
solutely authentic, because many of
the reigns of kings are collateral. The
• Sumerians believed that the patri
archs, corresponding to those of the
Old Testament, ruled before the flood
for 360,000 years. According to their
- story It was 35.000 years after the del
uge when Cyrus of Persia conquered
Babylonia.

Jap Urges Capital and Labor Lie
Down Together Throughout
World.
Tokyo.—A co-operative organization
of capital and labor which would not
• ignore human instincts and feelings
should be established throughout the
world, in the opinion of Mrs. Ko-ko
Tanaka, woman adviser to the Japan
J ese delegation in the international la
bor conference at Washington.
Contributing her views on the labor
question to Japanese woman's mag
azine, Mrs. Tanaka says that if such
a system were introduced the laborer
would be emancipated from the posi
tion of a wage earner and would em
ploy his energy with hope and zeal.
She continues;
"This no mere paper argument.
Such a system actually Is practiced In
a ticket manufactory at Tokyo. It is
a small factory with less than fifty
hands. The owner leaves the manage
ment entirely to his employees. The
• profits are divided equally between
owner and employees. The experiment
has stood the test of several years
and it could be applied to any fac
• tory on a much larger scale."
