That two of the eleven species of fos
sil mollusks from the John Day Valiev
included in the Condon museum of the
University are new- to science, is the
statement of Dr. G. I.>alDa Hanna, noted
paleontologist, in a publication on the
subject just issued by the department of
geology on the subject of the ancient
life of Oregon.
This publication, just printed by the
University Press under the direction of
Dr. 'E. L. Packard, acting head of the
department, the first paleontological,
paper in the research series created by
the University of Oregon last year.
Dr. Hanna, who wrote the report, is
eurator of mollusks in the Californir
Academy of Science in Ooblen Gate
Park. San ‘Francisco. He was formerly
connected with the University of Kan
sas and is the leading authority on the
Pacific Coast on recent and fossil fresh
water mollusks. according to Dr. Pack
Lived 2,000,000 Years Ago.
The two new species among the eleve
collected by Dr. Condon in the John Day
Valley, all of which were sent to Dr
TTam a for a survey and returned by
him, are the helician oregona, and the
rhiostoma americana. Both are sniib
that lived in the •oligocene age, about two
million years ago. The helician. oregona
had not been previously reported in the
oligocene of the United States, Dr. Han
lra points out. “It is another instance."
he says. “Of tropical forms which flour
ished much north of their present rang*
at that time.” The rhiostoma has living
Asiatic relatives in Siam, representing r
surprising survival of an oligocene type.
