there Is prospect that some long
neglected letters may reveal one of,
the most fascinating chapters in the v',ose Is
historic trail of the Jewish people, and
incidentally show that Africa loomed
larger in the middle nges than modern
historians have realized."
With this introduction the National
Geographic society in a bulletin makes
the first announcement in this country
of a remarkable documentary discov

librarian of the National library in
"Hitherto," says the librarian, Africa
has figured not at all in medieval his
tory. It still was a 'dark continent'
when Stanley and Livingstone pene
trated It less than a century ago. Yet
it would seem the Jews of the fifteenth
century had trading posts in north
west Africa and carried on a vast
commerce with the natives from the
Sahara Uo the Atlantic and from Al
geria to the Niger.
Medieval Natives of Africa.
"These native peoples, who finally
resisted the inroads of Christian, Jew
and Mohammedan, possessed sources
of wealth in grain and gold. Some

"Antonla Maifante, a Genoese citi
zen, traversed this region and wrote
his descriptive letters in 1447, from
Timbuktu and Touat. Timbuktu was
the Chicago of the West African
plains, and Touat the center of the
camel caravan traffic that exchanged I
the wheat and barley of Egypt for
the powdered gold of Timbuktu and
the perclous salt from Teghnzza.
"All the places visited by Malfante
were so well known to the Jews of his
time that they were llsfed in a Catalan
atlas prepared three-quarters of a cen
tury earlier by Charles V. according
to M. Itonciere. But shortly after Mal
fante's visit the Jews were driven out
of Spain, and since the Jews were the
only ones In Europe who knew of the
Nigeria country, and apparently per
mitted no Christians to enter there ex
cept Malfnnte, the Jewish knowledge
was lost to Europe. Not until Dr.
CJerhard Rolilfs began his explorations

rest of the world form a contact with

Malfante worked his way south to

to have been the first European to

This is the deduction made by scien

kinds of foods are necessary to sus

The reason for the II. C. L. casualty

the cheaper food and thereby deprive
themselves and their families of life

Proper Diet Needed.
•"lint to keep from getting acidosis
there Is a better way. The necessary
alkalines can be taken into the body
in a mixed diet, containing green vege

"One cannot emphasise too much

and fruits," declared Doctor Yoegtlin.
"From these foods one gets sodium and

"The starchy foods, such as cakes,
