Est-ce Une Nouvelle "Ruee Vers L'Or" (La Depeche, March 6, 1932)

Est-ce Une Nouvelle "Ruee Vers L'Or"? (“Is this a modern gold rush?”)

Article in La Depeche, March 6, 1932, describing an illegal archeological dig conducted in the Chateau of
Lordat (that bolonged to Countess Miriam de Pujol-Murat) by the French secret society “The Polaires” under the leadership of “a shadowy German individual named Rams.”

Otto wrote an indignant reply that appeared a few issues later – “My Dear Sirs, you’re entirely mistaken my name is Rahn not Rams.”
