Huge Saber-Tooth Tiger Lured
To Death in Asphalt Is Story
Told by Local Mounted Specimen
A great elephant floundered to
its death in a reeking, sticky pool
of asphalt, and its dea dcarcass
lay gleaming white in the black
mass. A ranging saber-tooth ti
ger approached the body, then
leaped upon it, and commenced
feeding on its flesh. The elephant
slowly sank deeper into the as
phalt, the long-toothed cat not
noticing the death closing in about
it also. The tiger leaped toward
the firm edge of the pool, but
slid back into the black half
This is the story the skele
ton of a saber-toothed tiger which
has just been mounted in the geol
ogy department tells. The great
carnivore is' six feet in length, and
over three feet in height, and it
has two saber-teeth over six inch
es in length protruding downward
from the massive upper jaw.| The
bones are typical of the cat, tend
ing more toward those of the lion
rather than the tiger, for the ti
ger slinks along the ground in the
jungle, and the lion trots swiftly
about in the grass of the tropical
The bones of the tiger were
taken from the asphalt deposit at
Rancho La Brea, near Los Ange
les, has been preserved in almost
perfect condition in the asphal
turn. This pool which was but an
acre in size has been the most
prolific region in the world in the
yielding of specimens of ancient
mammals. Many thousands of
specimens of horses, wolves, cam
els, lions, saber-tooth tigers, ele
phants, and of carnivorous birds,
including owls, eagles, and even
a peacock.
The skeleton was presented the
University three years ago by Dr.
Chester Stock, then instructor in
vertebrate paleontology at. the |
University of California, and now
at the California Institute of Tech
nology. It belongs to the species
of smilodon californiaus, which re
ceived its name from Dean John
F. Bovard, of the physical educa
tion department. Dean Bovard
was a student in paleontology at
the University of California when
the deposit was first dug into in
1902. He made a study of the sa
ber-tooth tiger found in the as
phalt pool, and after comparing it
with species found in South Amer
ica, he placed in the same genus,
smilodon, but distinguished it
from the others with the species
title californicus. Although simi
lar tigers have been dug up in
Oregon none of them have reach
ed the great size of the californi
cus, which in some instances, de
veloped teeth 13 inches in length.
Sam Itzikowitz, senior in biol
ogy. mounted the local specimen.
Although his experience in mount
ing has been limited to members
of the feline world, he has done a
neat and accurate piece of work
with the tiger, Dr. Packard, of the
geology department, said yester

Norblad Visits Over Week-End
Governor Makes Short Call on Campus
Editor’s Note: This is the second of a series of articles writ
ten about the leading candidates for the office of governor of
Oregon. The material printed attempts in no way to establish
an editorial policy for the Emerald.
“Hats off to the past. . . . Coats
off to the future!” That’s the
slogan Governor A. W. Norblad is
using in his campaign for Repub
lican nomination for governor in
the May primaries.
And well it fits him, too. Be
lieve me, when you have to give
up a good Sunday morning’s sleep
to interview a man, and even then,
when he is so rushed that a few
minutes is all he can spare, you
know he’s got his coat off for
something. And it’s not because
he didn’t need the sleep, either.
Saturday he attended almost a
dozen dedications, Anyway, he
reeled off a list as long as he is
tall, of things that he had done
the day before, and they were a
lot worse than just going to a
Saturday 8 o’clock, doing a few
house duties, and maybe taking in
a dance in the evening. Yes, sir,
he has his coat off.
He’s a nice-looking man; some
thing of the aristocratic about
him. Maybe it’s his rimless
glasses, maybe it's his hair, slight

the directorate, East declared. It
is the desire of the directorate to
have the floats of a higher calibre
than ever before as the fete will
be the biggest attraction of the
entire Junior Week-end this year.
The added attraction of three
choruses and several individual
specialties which will feature the
evening’s entertainment is expect
ed to draw a greater attendance
than ever before. A big stage is
to be erected to take care of the
large vodvil acts.
Tickets To Go on Sale

East. Reserved seats, to go on

Warner Booklet
Museum Cornerstone Will
Contain Copy as
A booklet about the life of Ma
jor Murray Warner was published
recently by the University Press.
The book will be placed in the cor
nerstone of the new Murray War
ner museum, that his memory
may always be preserved.
The booklet contains letters
about him written by close friends
of his, Leonard Metcalf and Cap
tain Phillips H. Mallory. It is
beautifully' printed on a very fine
grade of paper.
The introduction of the book
says in part: “For a man who,
himself, never visited the Univer
sity of Oregon, Major Warner has
had a most far-reaching effect on
this institution. The priceless
Murray Warner collection, brought
together by Mrs. Gertrde Bass
Warner, his widow, and donated
to the University, can be traced
in part to his inspiring influence."
Major Warner was born March 9,
1869, and died October 4, 1920.
