The barrier, beginning aL Shanhalkwan on the Gulf of Chihlt, stretches in a snakelike source far in- to Mongolia. If transferred to a map of the Unit- ed States and its eastern end placed at Philadelphia, the wall and its spurs would penetrate the border of Pennsyl- vania, West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, MissourL Arkansas and Kansas According to astronomers, the wall is the only work of man's hand whith would be visible to the human eye from the moon. Some idea of the size of Its stupendous construction may be gained from the calculation that if the materials of wMch it was built were used to encircle the globe at the equa- tor, they would be sufficienL to form a barrier eight feet high and three feet thick. There are more brick and stone in the Great Wall than in all the build- Ing in the United Kingdom. IItstorians class this mighty rampart ns the "Eighth Wonder of the World"; and not the least wonderful part about it is that it l|a. survived all the others save one, the Great Pyramid of Kufu at Gizeh. The Great Wall of China differed from other famous wonders of the world in that It served a utilitarian purpose, whereas most of the others were all "preposterous edifices of ex- aggerated hugeness, of dazzling and ruinous luxury." It had a mighty pur- pose, serving as a barrier to keep the barbarians of the North from overrun- ning China, whose fertile plains Invit- ed them. The idea was not ridiculous In aa era when bows and arrows and twisted pil,:,,s were tile weapons of invaders. Thee earth and stone were real deter- rents (for artillery was unknown) against armies that were simply eav- adry hordes. Was Completed in 204 B. C. Walls dividing rival femlal kingdoms or protecting them from foreign en- emies are mentioned in the Ohinese chronicles as early as the Fifth cen- tury before Christ, and It Is probable that porthms of these previously built walls, of which vague vestiges are still traceable in some parts of Chihli and Shantung provinces, w.ere utilized by Chin Shih lluang Tl (contemporary of Hannibal), who extended and linked them together wl|en he built his "Long Rampart," stretching from Shanhaik- wan, on the sea coasL to Mlnchow, In distant Kansu, In order to protect him- self and his empire from the Huns, whom he so long unsuccessfully tried to overcome in the field. Begun in 219 B. (2., the harrier was completed In 204 B. C. Thus It was fifteen yea In building, seven of which were after the mighty emperor's death. To blm alone, however, Is due the conception of a work probably un- equaled in any land or by any people for the amount of human labor be- stowed upon it. Three hundred thou- sand troop& besides prisoners of war and all the criminals in the land. in- cluding many dishonest officlals, were Impressed for the work, How these unskilled laborers accom- plished their task with the primitive means at their disposal, how they over- came the physical dimcultles tmposed on them by the steep slopes of the high mountain ranges, remains a mar- vel to tMs day. As for the covt of the wall, no figures have been preserved. A weaker man might well have hesitated to plan an undertaking which, though popular In the main as a defensive measure, en- tailed great suffering on the people.

Wonderful stories and legends, of course, still find their place In the minds of men about Chin Shih Huang Ti and the Great Wall. The prettiest is, perhaps, the story of how his magic white horse was supposed to have marked out the line of the harrier. The animal was allowed to wander freely, and wherever it went the bulid- ers followed, up hill and down dale, where no horse but a "magic horse" could find a foothold. "At one point." so runs the legend, "the workmen could not keep up with the creature, so they called a halt to drink their tea. "Meanwhile a dry fog (probably one of the blinding dust sorms common in those latit'udes) blew up, until they could neltier see the horse nor its footprints; but after tea they cntln- 1 ued in the same line for ten miles. "Not seeing the horse yet, they be- came suspicious and sent one of their number up a hill to look out. He spied the animal far away to the southwest, I heading In quite a different direction. So the workmen abandoned the last stretch, returned to their camp, and! I bnilt a new wall of forty lI (the Chi- nese li Is rouzhly a third of an Eng- , lish mile), which still remains to prove this story." Legend Accounts for Fast Work. Another legend describes how "a compassionate God in heaven looking  down and moved to pity by the uffer- Ings of the builders, many of whom had been killed and entombed In the wail because they could not get their work done fast enough, presented each toiler with a ma'ic thread, bidding him tie It around his wrist. *'This gave the workmen abnormal strength and they were aMe to satisfy the king. 29x4.50-20 30x4.50-21 28x4.75-19 29x5.00-I9 31x5.25-21 29x5.50-19 FRIDAY, APRIL 15. 1932 Each Each in Pairs Lifetime Guaranteed GOODYEAR PATHFINDER Fall Price of Each in Overrd Each Pairs 29x4.40-21 $4.79 $4.65 5.19 5.27 6.16 6.45 7.91 8.23 -AL W New 1932 Lifetime Guaranteed GOODYEAR SPEEDWAY A.
