Prehistoric Animals1 Bones
Found In Umatilla County
Studied By Oregon Scientists
By GEORGE SKORNEY

PENDLETON, Nov. 3. UP) Thirty million years ago a large
aquatic rhinoceros, and .a deer-like animal wallowed in the lush
swamps and marshes of what is now the dry wheat land of Umatilla
county in eastern Oregon.
Two weeks ago," two University
of Oregon scientists, led by a
Pendleton barber, picked up
white fossilized bones and teeth
of these two prehistoric animals,
lying amid rocks on a bank of
McKay reservoir, ."ive miles
south of Pendleton.
After study, the scientists call
ed the find "important" and said
they would ask for research
Fossilized bone fragments of
an ancient horse and a large cat,
possibly a sabre-tooth tiger, were
found in the same area. Accord
ing to scientists Sam Sargent and
Arnold Shotwell, these animals
lived in the lee age, one to two
million years ago. Fragments of
bones of several other animajs
were also found, but they have
not yet been identified.
Barber Ray Spangle found the
two largest specimens, rear leg
bones of the aquatic rhinoceros,
last year on two different fishing
trips. Spangle has made some
thing of a hobby of geology.
The two rear leg bones were
about 18 inches long and weigh
ed over 15 pounds each in their
fossilized state. They were white
in color, looking like the rocks
in which they were found.
Spangle, with the aid of the
Pendleton East Oregonian, got
the University of Oregon geology
department to send Sargent, in
structor in paleontology, and
Shotwell, curator of the Univer
sity's museum of natural history,
to Pendleton to. look at the two
fossilized leg bones and search
the area where they were found.
The two scientists, Sp-ngle, an
East Oregonian reporter, and the
sharp eyes of Spangle's son,
Charles, found six large leg
bones (some complete), five
complete teeth of at least two
different animals, two fragmen
tal tusks, the bones of several
small animals, and a number f
fragments of various bones.
At the end of the hunt, Sar
gent and Shotwell conjectured
that some of the fossilized bones
might not be from the same water-laid
volcanic ash formation
in which they were found. They
said this was possible because
the bones were found In gravels
where they had been Jaid by ero
sion of the dam's waters rising
After studying the fossilized
bones at the University of Ore
gon, the two scientists reported,
"as near as we can find out, the
area at McKay reservoir where
the bones were found is a new
vertebrate locality. , The geology
of It is Doorlv known which ham

Poor Man's Philosopher Votes For
Lady President With Good Reason
By HAL BOYLE
NEW YORK UP) There Is a hubbub on the horizon over
whether America should elect a lady president,
The mere suggestion of an elected female boss in the White
House has stirred a lot of anguished male yawping, but a "madam

This is because power tends to
move in a single direction, un

reversed only by a mass male

IF you want to know what's "the new
est thing" in automobile engines,
look at the Buick engine pictured here,
and you'll see the words "valve-in-head."
But it happens that this isn't new with
Buick. As a matter of fact, the valve-in-head
engine was invented back in 1902
-U. S. Patent No. 771095 -and imme
diately, Buick adopted the principle,
which became the first in a long string
of "Buick firsts." ' , .
Not everyone went for the idea then.
In spite of the fact that this engine
"breathes" more freely gets fuel in
and exhaust gases out more easily
others hung onto their pet ideas.
Then came the airplane, with its need
for maximum power from every drop
of fuel and every maker of internal
combustion airplane engines adopted
the valve-in-head principle. .
And more recently with the hope
that higher-octane fuels will become
available for motor cars a lot of auto
motive engine designers are taking a
new look at the valve-in-head idea.
But just for the record, we'd like to
point out that Buick got there first.
And ever since, Buick has gone steadily
ahead, building up a name as "valve-in-hcadquarters."
Buick engineers re
shaped pistons to put Fireball wallop
in these engines. They stepped up com
pression ratios as fast as better fuels
So perhaps you'll want to remember,
when you hear the term "valve-in-head,"
that this is the type of power
that made Buick famous.
If others want to climb on the band
wagon, we say "more power to them"
and no pun is intended.
But Buick has been doing more with
valve-in-head right from the start.
And-we might add -it stands to rea
son that" Buick is not through making
this type of engine better and better.
