)pades And Shovels' Find Pots And Paws:
University Men Unearth Relies
Of Ancient Great Lake Indians





Vestiges of an ancient Indian civili-
zation, buried for centuries in the
shifting strata of the Great Lakes
region, have been unearthed during
the past summer in a continuation of
the excavation work begun in 1938
by the Museum of Anthropology, ac-
cording to Dr. Emerson Green, of this
Crude implements of quartzite,
slate, flint, and clay pottery are of
such a character and position as to
indicate that they were deposited on
these fluctuating- beaches when the
waters of Lake Huron were at their
height. The . artifacts indicate the
age of the various locations, and the
time that has elapsed since this ter-
rain was at water level.
The antiquity ascribed by Dr.
George M. Stanley of the Department
of Geology, to these areas ranges
from 1,400 to 12,000 years. The last
age is the greatest that has been re-,
corded for human occupation in other
parts of the New World and has a
bearing upon the question of the
time of the inhabitants of this coun-
try. For the past several thousand
years the land has been expanding
or lifting up in the Great Lakes re-
gion north of Saginaw Bay, conse-
quently these beaches are designated
as "abandoned" or "raised." The
heights attained, by these separate
tracts is 28, 56, and 297 feet.
During the past'summer Dr. Stan-
ley has discovered a fourth site also
at an elevation of 297 feet, located
half a mils from the first one. Arti-
A. H. White To Discuss
Engineering Education
The immediate task of engineering
education w'.ll be discussed by Prof.
A. H. White, chairman of the chemi-
cal and metallurgical engineering de-
partment, tomorrow when he ad-
drelses the Allegheny section of the
Society for the Promotion of Engi-
neering Education in Penn State, Pa.
The Society of which Professor
White is president will consider prob-
lems confronting engineering schools
and demands on them at their -meet-

facts uncovered here were identified
as articles of quartzite. The two
beaches at 297 feet were occupied at
approximately the same time. Since
that period, however, some of tiv
deposits have been carried down the
slopes by spring freshets to a dis-
tance of several hundred feet frezr
their original positions.
The four sites are either alenu
:oads or trails in rocky, brush-covered
country, according to Dr. Green. It,
is expected that other locations will
be unearthed in this vicinity. The
excavating crew of the past summer
consisted of two members of the
Great Lakes Division of the Museum
of Anthropology, and four students,
under the direction of Dr. Green.
