IN 81'ITE of peuetrutlon by an oc
coslouul explorur, Tllt Is still al
most aa little known to the world
as In Marco I'olo's day, OUU years
ago. Tractlcally nothing Is known,
even, of the origin and ancestry of
the Tibetans This Is probably due
lu large part to the rigid exclusion of
men of science end other traveler.
The Tibetans themwlves dismiss the
subject with hoilcs fulry tales and
legenda. One of these has It that the
progenitors of the race were "I she
devil of the Himalayas" aud an ape
from the plains of Illudustan.

perhaps, than any other distinct type,
although In color and other character
InIIo features there la an Indication
that they may have sprung from the
original Mongol people.
Outside the few towns and the many
monasteries, the people of Tlbot may
be divided Into tho nomad herders of
the uplands, and the settled farmers
of the valleys. The nomads live

entirely of wood, with a single han

like suit, Is also used In aouie sections
In place of money.
The outstanding marriage curtora In
Tibet la polyandry, under which a
woman baa several husbands, usually
brothers. Uudrr the usual arrnugo
ment, one husband will take care of
the home In the valley, If there U

GREATEST JULY IN WltLYS-OVERlAND HISTORY1
The big forward march of Willys-Overland continue!
Following the greatest six months in Willys-Overland's
20-year history, with sales exceeding the entire 1927
output, came July with far more sales than any pre
vious July. 100 more Whippet and Willys-Knight
cars were purchased than during July last year.
This success is not surprising. Whippet Fours
and Sixes and the three great Willys-Knight
Sixes offer a degree of comfort, performance,

available at such extremely low prices.
