Methods Of Preserving Remnants
Of Mounds In Mississippi Valley
Discussed At Meeting
Preservation of the mounds and
other historical remnants in the
Mississippi valley, was the princi-
pal subject considered at a conven-
tion held at St. Louis, May 17 and
18, under the auspices of the Na-
tional Research council, division of
anthropology and psychology. As
chairman of the committee on state
archeological surveys of the coun-
cil, the meeting of which occupied
the first day of the gathering, Dr.
Carl E. Guthe, of the University
museum of anthropology, was one
of the three men who conducted
this meeting.
About 50 delegates, representing
22 states, were present. Nineteen
states of the Mississippi valley,
fron Minnesota to Louisiana,,were
represented, while Massachusetts.
New York and Pennsylvania also
sent delegates. The conference, the
first of its kind to be held in this
cuntry, was made possible by re-
newed interest in Mississippi valley
work and the active spirit of co-
operation of the organizations in-
The program of the convention
was opened May 17 by a prelim-
inary meting of the committee on
state archeological surveys. On the
afternoon of that day, the group
was taken to visit the mounds in
East St. Louis, examples of the sort

The second day was taken up by
a series of talks on various phases
of the work of preserving and
studying these interesting monu-
ments of early American civiliza-
tion. Among the speakers were
Harry S. Caulfield, governor of
Missouri,hDr. Knight Dunlap, chair-
man of the division of anthropology
search council, and Dr. F. W. Hodge,
and psychology of the National Re-
eurator of the Museum of the Amer-
ican Indian, New York City.
Among the subjects taken up
were, "The Value of Local Remains
To States," "The Conservation of
Public Sites," and "The Ancient In-
dians of the Mississippi." After

delivered. by men whose work lies
in the field of archeology and
anthropology, a general discussion
of the topic from a layman's view-
point was made by someone outside
of this field. In this way it was in-
sured that the procedings, several
of which were broadcast or willI
later be published, would appeal to
he layman as well as those espe-
cially interested in the work. These
relics are of great historical inter-
est and value, and an effort is being'
made to draw the attention of the
citizens of the various states, par-
ticularly in the Middle West, to this
This section of Michigan, Ohio,
and Indiana, all contain numerous
mounds and other relics, which
makes this work especially applic-
able locally.

Dear Sirs:
ILaying just returncd from my fishing
camp in northern Ontario, and in the
reflections upon a fortnight of most
excellent weather, wonderful fishing
and complete camp comfort, I feel
that an appreciation of Edgeworth is
due, as one of the principal factors of
our enjoyment.
In past years, I have taken along a
supply of various well-known .bran n
of smoking tobacco, never having be-
come fully acquainted with the differ-
ence in the smoking qualities of the
so-called high-grade tobaccos now
upon the market,and acting upon a
tip from an old smoker friend, and as
a matter of convenience in packing,
this year I took along a dozen tins of
Edgeworth Plug Slice.
There are no places nor conditions
in existence where the contentment
drawn from a briar pipe meets with
keener enjoyment or more critical
analysis than beside the camp-fire
after a strenuous day in the great
