Deer Antler
Solves Case
CROWN POINT, Ind. (W) - The
,ase of the smashed storm win-
dows and the blood-spattered ga-
rage was closed yesterday.
Phillip Huggins called police
Saturday when he found every
storm window in his garage shat-
tered, his screens torn up, and
blood on the floor and on his new
car.
A police search turned up a 12-
inch piece of a deer's antler. They
surmised the buck had wandered
into the garage during the night,
mistaken his own reflection in the
storm windows for another deer,
given battle, and finally escaped.

Two High School Boys
Find Bones, Metal Tools

By EDWARD GERULDSEN
A collection of bones and cop-
per implements, representing the
earliest known use of metal in
the New World, was discovered
last summer in Saginaw by two
high school boys.
The discovery, a grave dating
back to the Old Copper Culture,
is estimated to be 4,000 years old,
perhaps older, according to Prof.
Emerson F. Greenman of the An-
thropology department.
The grave was found in a sand
hill near the Pittidawassee River
in Saginaw. It included the re-
mains of at least two adults, Prof.
Greenman said, and a number of
copper implements.
Discoveries
Among these was a nine inch
harpoon, a double pointed imple-
ment about the same length, a
small axe, and 26 beads. In addi-
tion, there was a short section of
woven string.
All the copper. articles were
hammered from the native metal.
Native copper, which is the nat-
uarlly-occuring free metal, is
found primarily in the northern
part of the Upper Peninsula, on
Keewenau Peninsula and Isle
Royal, where there are probably
thousands of open copper pits.
These pits were the major
source of the metal for the people

of this culture. They used only
native metal, which they treated
as stone. They had no knowledge
of smelting, and so could not use
ores, nor did they melt or mold
their copperimplements. Every-
thing was beaten or hammered
into the desired shape.
Though this latest discovery is
not the first made in Michigan,
it is very significant, in that it is?
the first burial discovery in the
Lower Peninsula.
Copper Culture
The Old Copper culture is
known to have inhabited the Great
Lakes Region, in the area from
Wisconsin and Minnesota into On-
tario. Until eight or ten years ago,
the only evidence of their exis-
tence has been tools and weapons
found on the surface.
About 10 years ago, a harpoon
similar to that found in the Sag-
inaw sandhill was discovered in
Washtenaw County, near Ann Ar-
bor. The first burial belonging to
this culture was uncovered by
Prof. A. C. Spaulding of the Uni-
versity Anthropology department,
in the Upper Peninsula.
The remains of the Saginaw
burial were preserved, Prof. Green-
man said, only because of the
copper that had been placed with
the bodies.
Deposits of copper salts on the
bones served to protect them from
decay and destruction, but it also
stained them a definite green, as
is always the case when they are
exposed for a long period to the
metal.
Shortly after the discovery, the
remains were brought to the Uni-
versity Museum of Anthropology
for evaluation. They have since
been returned to the owners, who
have indicated that they will
shortly be brought back and pre-
sented to the University as a per-
manent gift.
