C, noted eastern educator and attorney, is paying a visit to the University to renew old acquaintances and memories of the days when he attended this institution. Mr. Grossman first came to the University after having won a scholarship while attending Louisville Male High school. He studied engineering under Dean Anderson in 1914, '15 and '16, living in the old dormitory which Is now known as the White hall building. After the 1910 term, he went to Youngstown, Ohio, to take up work with .the Iruscon Steel company. Later In the year he went to Washington, where he was connected with the office of Chief of Ordinance, U. S. Army. During tho war he worked as a designer of heavy artillery and translator of enemy mav terial into English, Since he has been in Washington, Professor Grossman has worked his way through both George Washington and Georgetown, universities by holding a position with the Interstate Commerce Commission. At the former institution he received the degree of A. B. (with distinction), M. A., and LL. B., in the years of 1921, '22 and '24, respectively. In the law work he was associated with Dean Albert Evans, who now heads the University College of Law. In the latter school he received, in 1925, a Ph. D., in International Law and Diplomacy. In 192G the degree of LL. M. was added to his scholastic ach ievements. He was admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia in 1923, and to the Kentucky bar in 1924.

Scientists Unearth Strange Evidence of Prehistoric Men Who Once Peopled Kentucky Evidence of man who roamed Ken-- , tucky COO years ago, whose religion is u matter of confusion, who built large structures in which to worship, only to later see them destroyed by fire cither intentionally or accidentally, has been discovered by Dr. W. D. Funkhauser and Prof. W. S. Webb, of the University, who went on a month's exploration trip in Christian county this summer. The prehistoric evidence discovered is not the oldest of its nature in Kentucky, but is among the most ancient and presents many problems to authropoligists and archoeologists. Men with horses and scrapers were required to dig into the base of the mound discovered, which was of great size. Upon completion of the excavation the structure was found to be a ceremonial mound and gave insight into tho religious characteristics of the ancient tribe. Tho information gained will permit scientists to make deductions as to the mode of living und other matters of interest. It will be come time before the investigation is complete, but the remainder is composed mostly of laboratory und office work. Ancient Altars Found Upon rcuching tho base of the mound, tho explorers found evidences of old structures, posts which hud been set in tho ground for building purposes, ancient altars and other specimens of an interesting nature. Many artifacts, including skeletons, pottery and parts of the religious shrines were returned to the Univer sity by Dr, Funkhouser and Professor Webb, together structure. with pictures of the" i "Our first conclusion was that the tribe were worshippers of idols," Professor Webb said. "Later discoveries caused us to doubt this. Pictures painted on some of the pottery led us to believe that some other type Qf worship might have been the vogue." The tribe was apparently according to Professor Webb. These races are known as mound builders and stone grave men. A very interesting part of the find was tho structures which the prehistoric men built in which to worship. These houses were built by driving rows of posts for the four walls, putting posts in tho center with which to hold up the roof and then interweaving the posts with brush and twigs. Three such structures were found iu the one mound. One would be built, burned to the ground and eventually covered with sod, then another structure would be erected. Whether tho burning was intentional or accidental could not be ascertained, Professor Webb said. Fires wero built inside the houses for worship and the buildings might have been destroyed in this manner. Tho structures contained inside the mound were about twenty by forty feet. "The height cannot be ascertained until much figuring has been done," Professor Webb said. "This and the other features of tho discovery will be investigated this year." (Continued on Page Twelve)
