m RACE TO CHINA
necent Discoveries Bear Out
Tradition That Chinese Once
MAY SOLVE ANCIENT PUZZLE
Hieroglyphics Found on Foundation

Migration From Orient.
Mexico. City. Hierorlynhlcs recent-
ly discovered on the foundation stones
of the pyramids of Snn Juan Teotl
huacan, 27 miles northeast of Mexico
City, may solve the problem which has
perplexed historians and archeolofjists
for centuries as to the true origin of
tlie Mexieun nation. These strange
carvings are said by some authorities
to be Chinese, thus tending to bear
out the old tradition that in the dim
past wandering tribes from China
crossed to the new continent, settled
within the present boundaries of Mex
ico and became the progenitors of
the race which now dominates this
So interesting are the recent discov
eries that the bureau of anthropology
has been Instructed to conduct a vigor
ous research, and in this connection
Fong Tslang Kuang, charge d'affaires
of the Chinese legation In Mexico, vis
ited the pyramids and stated that the
hieroglyphics were similar In many re
spects to certain symbols now in use
by the Chinese. He declared the words
"sun," "city" and "eye" were clearly
depleted. Mexican anthropologists who
have interested themselves In the dis
covery have declined to pass final Judg
ment -until runner excavations are
made and more evidence obtained.
Pyramids Primitive Marks.
The pyramids of San Juan Teotlhua
can as well ns those In Cholula, In the
state of Puebla, are among the oldest
marks of primitive habitation to be
found in the republic. They stand as
colossal monuments to peoples whose
history was as obscure to the conquer
ing Spaniards in the sixteenth century
as to present-day historians. Because
of their general construction, some au
thorities believe they are the handi
work of the Egyptians, who In some
mysterious manner crossed the seas
and denoted their'places of permanent
habitation with these stone and cement
structures, which are even larger than
the most famous pyramids of Egypt.
The little village of San Juan Teotl-
huacan, which in the Aztec language
means "CUy of the Gods," was in the
early days of Aztec history the scene
of extraordinary religious ceremonies.
The two pyramids, one dedicated to
the sun, the other to the moon, are
known to have been the tombs In which
nunureus or tnnni dignitaries were
buried, and excavators have exhumed
wrought stone containing human bones,
obsidian knives, terra-cotta heads with
broad faces and fiat noses, fragments
of rare pottery and great numbers of
Find Mask of Monarch.
One of the most recent and most
valuable discoveries wag a jadelte
musk of some past monarch with the
brow covered with the diadem known
to early Mexican history. The pyramid
to the sun measures 761 by 721 feet at
th,e base and Is 210 feet high ; the one
to the moon Is 511 by 420 feet at the
base and is 1.11 feet high. They both
contain numerous chambers, and their
several stories are completer temples In
themselves, but connected by winding

acteristics were discovered through

generally . been known as La Claud-
nueia tine uitaueij, nut which, ac
cording to recent reports of Investiga

larger and perhaps older than the two

WANT MORE BIRTHS
France Is Stirred to Urge Larger
Government - Names Board
Nation of Danger
Paris. Prance Is at last arousing It
self to the danger of dying out.
The privately conducted, uphill fight
for a higher birthrate has been taken
over by the government through the
creation of a higher council of natal
ity. This council of 80, appointed by
J. L. Breton, minister of hygiene, was
asked to act Immediately. .
Mr. Breton, father of five children,
Is knowri as a strong frlen'd of large
families. Three others of the new cab
inet are advocates of measures to In
crease the French birth rate.
War cost France roughly 1,500,000
lives. A low birth rate, during the war
years, cost France 2,272,735 loss of
The statistics, made, -Into striking
pictures to Illustrate their effect on
the nation, Industry and war danger
are being used In a vigorous campaign,
by the national alliance, for the in
crease of the French population. This
campaign Is being conducted by letters
to members of parliament, posters, p
magazine, the Woman and the Child,
and through the many socially and
politically powerful persons Interested
In the movement.
The plainest sorts of truth are told
the French about the decreasing birth
rate. The national alliance nnd gov
ernment officials hold that a family
should hava three or more children.
To encourage such families, govern
ment allowances of CO to 200 francs a
year are granted for each child after
the second, under thirteen years.
The alliance asks also for legisla
tion to provide for the construction of
cheap attractive homes available only
to large families, establishment of
'supersalarles" In Industries to heads
of such fandlies, preference In govern
ment employment, the plural vote, giv
ing the father as many votes as there
