French City Sends Egg

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A new addition to the University's ever-growing collection of dinosaur eggs will arrive from Paris by air today. Weighing 20 pounds, the egg is a gift from the French city of Aix-En-Provence.

After the object gets through the U.S. Customs' examination on Monday, Dr. A. S. Romer, Director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, which will be the egg's resting place, will examine it and release information on its exact size and paleological significance.

The dinosaur egg is about twice the size of a big ostrich egg, according to William M. Pinkerton, Director of the University News Office. Ostrich eggs are usually about 5 1/2 inches in diameter and 7 inches in length.
