Science: Kozlov in Tibet

The Soviet Government, whatever its demerits, is a patron of science. P. T. Kozlov, Russian explorer of Tibet, has been given 100,000 rubles to start him off on a three-year trip, beginning in August.

He goes first to the dead city of Karakoto, rich in buried treasure; then across the Gobi Desert and Goudbunsaikan Mountains to Fumafu, over the Navisham Range, and finally to Lake Kokonor, in which there is a small island of great interest to archaeologists.

M. Kozlov has been exploring Tibet since 1908. Twenty-one persons will accompany him.
