LOST CITY' FOUND These sun-baked ruins In the Afghanistan "Desert of Death" are believed to be
those of the once great city of Peshawarum, which has stood untouched since Its 100,000 inhabitants
abandoned It eight centuries ago. The city, once an outpost of Alexander the Great, covers a 30-mlle-square
area. It may be one of the greatest archaeological finds of recent years since the residents left
most of their possessions behind.
Cigar Box Swapped For Violin Puts
Genius On Road To Fame And Riches
By HAL BOYLE
NEW YORK UP) If you want your boy to be a great violinist,
don't make him study the violin.1 . , r ...
A lady named Mrs, Prima made this mistake down In New
Orleans about 30 years ago.
She had a little bov. Louie, who
made a violin, out of a cigar box
and borrowed mandolin strings.
Mrs. Prima, sure her son was a
genius, rushed him off to a violin
teacher. For eight miserable
years, unwilling Louie sawed
through endless Hungarian rhap
"All the time Ah wished Ah had
made a cigar box out of a violin
instead of a fiddle out of a cigar
box," he recalled.
One day he picked up a cornet
belonging to his older brother,
Leon. He blew a few intoxicat
ing notes and hung up his fiddle
and bow for life. He went from
the cornet to the trumpet, and
has dwelt ever since In the king
dom of jazz.
"For years mah mother still
wanted me to be a violin virtuo
so had her heart set on It," said
the band leader. "But she's hap
py now-r-very happy."
For today Prima has a 16-piece
band, a recording firm, two sheet
music publishing companies and
a racing stable of 11 horses. He
and his brother also own a New
Orleans night club. His various
enterprises have grossed as high
as $500,000 a year.
"If you want a kid to go into
music, said Louie, "the best
thing is to let him learn a little
piano first so he'll get a basic
knowledge of chorus and har
mony. "Then, as he grows older, let
him take up whatever special in
strument he decides himself he

I "I called up the United Fruit
company, thinking they'd be glad
to know this," said Prima's press
agent. "But they asked us,
please, not to do It. Said that
song hurt the sale of bananas. I
asked them why, and the man
" T don't know. I had a clip
ping that explained why, but I

"Ah can't understand It ei
ther," said Louie. "That was
about the biggest song hit of the
century. And Ah think the time
is ripe for it again people need
something like those gang things
everybody can sing."
Louie's proudest memory Is of
the way he played in the White
House for President Roosevelt's
last birthday luncheon. Mrs.
Roosevelt invited him.

know whether to sav, 'Pleased
to meet you, 'Hody do,' or 'The

Finally, Louie got to FDR and
"Hello, Daddy' "
The president laughed out loud.
"Ah think," said Louie, "he
understood hepcat talk."

kyo now is in the process of turn

latest move was the announce

be re-established on Dec. 1.
Equally important, perhaps, is
the new eagerness 31 Japanese
officials to' take over control and
assume responsibility. A year
ago they refused several chances
to gain more autonomy.

are conspicuously anxious to

Most key government officials
have reiterated, however, that a
peace treaty is necessary to re
store Japan to Its full capacity.
The cold war delayed It for
months, if not years.
Now that the situation Is at
least clarified in China, a 1ey '
remaining question is whether
the Chinese Communists reach a
position to demaB participation
In the peace treaty. American
authorities In Tokyo oppose this.-
That might also suggest a rea

still look to the United States
