The mysterious death of Or. Arthur E. P. B. Weigall. noted author and Egyptologist, in London, recalls the
series of misfortunes that overtook many who were connected with the Howard Carter Expedition which
opened the tomb of King Tutankhamen, at Luxor. Egypt, mors than a decade ago. Superstitious Britons say
the savant's death, is proof that the corse, placed by the ancient Pharaoh on defilers of his tomb, is still work
ing. While excavation work on the tomb was still in progress, Lord Carnarvon, financial backer of the expe
dition, died -mysteriously. Soon after Carter was stricken, bat recovered. Then, The Hon. Reginald Wendell,
Carnarvon s brother-in-law, died at the age of 29, and Lady Carnarvon was afflicted with a mysterious
malady but recovered. Colonel Audrey Herbert, Carnarvon's half brother died and many ethers whose con
nection with the nobleman was remote also suffered throoeh the strange spell.

Sale of city tax stamps for beer
and wines will be resumed Friday
when Salem's new liquor control
ordinance becomes effective. City
Recorder Mark Poulsen announced
yesterday. The new beer stamps
are in denominations of one-halt
cent for pint bottles, one cent tor
larger bottles, 30 cents for quar
ter barrels and 55 cents for half
barrels. Uncertain as to terms of
the ordinance, Poulsen has not or
dered any wine stamps, he said.
Friday will bring not only a
rush for tax stamps, city officials
believe, but also for licenses un
der the new ordinance. Police are
not expected to enforce the licens
ing provision until after next Mon
day night's council session frhen
licenses will be granted to dealers
whose applications and bonds have
been approved by the council 11-
censa committee.
Beer dealers apparently have
disregarded the stamp tax under
tho 1932 ordinance for eeveral
weeks. The city recorder's ac
counts show that none of these
stamps have been sold since De
cember 20.

William E. Humphrey, Wash

Some probability that more
vegetables will be packed in local

past few years is gleaned from
local canners. Just home from the
annual Northwest Canners' con
vention at Seattle. The conven

and showed a greater spirit of op
timism than has prevailed since
Old Man Depressoia got in his
first licks.
Success of a comparatively large
pack of peas in Paget Sound
plants and better reception ot Ore
gon canned beans and peas In
eastern markets go to make for
talk of more vegetable growing
and packing. Coupled with this Is
the decreased acreages of some
varieties ot berries.
