THE MOHAYE COUNTY MINES AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1920. Navy Travelogues IDownGoPricesi J3C.IS" ueziUR Central Commercial Co. Deals Staggering Blow to Old H. C. L. in Arizona - U.S. SAILORS IN POA?EII Pompeii has always been one of tha mysteries of the old world. At one time a powerful and highly civ ilized colony of the Roman Empire, the City of Pompeii Was entirely for gotten between the years of 4 and 1748. Altho the first completo destruction of Pompeii by Mt. Vesuvius occurred in the year 79, attempts wen made to rebuild on the same site up to the eruption of 472. In 1748 a peasant, in sinking a well, discovered the fres coed walls and statued recesses of what was once a fine residence in the old city of Pompeii. The King of Naples then ordered an excavation and an investigation of the City. Little can be discovered of the City's early history, altho it's founding is at tributed to the Oscans, a name derived from, a Greek word meaning 'store house', indicating a commercial spirit. In the year 55, Nero, as Emperor of Rome, conquered the City, allowing her however, freedom of government by her own class. The style of public buildings indicates altered tastes fol lowing her transferred allegiance; the early building being Greek and the later Roman. The effects of earthquake and vol canic eruption are also shown in the style of architecture, the buildings being usually low 'and very heavily constructed. It is generally consid ered that Pompeii was a city of thirty to fifty thousand inhabitants. It cov ered an area of about 160 acres. Two thirds of the City, within the lines of its walls has been uncovered iip to the present time. It is conceded by all travellers that this is one of the most interesting sights in the world, combining the charm and mystery of a forgotten civilization with a tremendous volcanic phenomenon. On account of the largo numbar of Arizona students who will attend the Columbia University Summer Ses sion, in which nearly one thousand courses covering such a wide range of subjects as Assyrian, law, businebs, journalism, music and education will be given, an organization will be per fected to look after the interests of ther-e Arizona students while in Now Y.rk city. Hundreds of insiruaors havj been drawn from, the leading universities, o ilegcs, and schoo':,, East and West for this year's session, which lasts hv. from July 6 until August 13, and which will attract students from prac tically every state and many foreign countries. Last year the summer session atten dance approximated 10,000. This year these figures promise to be great ly exceeded. The number of teachers and others from Arizona seeking pro fessional instruction is likely to be far more numerous, applications from that section, according to Prof . John J. Coss, the new director, being about double those of 1919. Many Arizona students who have been taking work in the Home and Community Study Department of Co lumbia University, in which a great variety of courses including philos ophy, law, short story1, 'writing, bus iness, sociology, history, library econ omy, economics, accounting, psycholo gy, romance, languages, fine arts, and agriculture are given, are making plans to attend the summer session. The Home Study Department, though started only last fall is grow ing rapidly and students from pract ically every state and many foreign countries are enrolled in its mail courses. Even the sailors at sea are studying navigation under Prof. Har old Jacoby, the noted astronomer.
