(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A claim that the Ark and the Temb of Moses have been located is made by a German specialist recently arrived here from Germany. He claims to be an expert in the science of discovering lost locations, of which he furnishes proofs from past expencnces. He made a survey of Mr. Neboon his own accord and declares that the Ark is located. He returned with plans and skelch doeuments wriften and signed by himself describing the exact toeation and the history of his trip on foot which he handed over to A. F. Futterer of the Los Angeles Bible Instimte. who came to Palestine recently in search for the Ark of the Covenant.

Mr. Futterer. after careful examination of the document and plans of Nebo, declared that though the specialist proves himself to be totally ignoram of the Scripture narratives, he has, never theless descrihed the exact locations of the Ark and Moses’ Tomb, but with much mere detail than is fonnd in Scripture evidence. and from which, along with Mr. Futterer’s own conelusions, it appears almost certain that both the Ark and Tomb of Moses have been loeated. Other Holy places have also been Loeated by this man, which, if verified, will upset many previous long standing theories of places in and about Jerusalem.

Mr. Futterer stated that he has no connection with this expert.
