Huge Saber-Tooth Tiger Lured To Death in Asphalt Is Story Told by Local Mounted Specimen By MERLIN BLAIS 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 liquid. 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 prairies. 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 day.

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. By BOB ALLEN H “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 GOVERNOR NORBLAD thing of the aristocratic about him. Maybe it’s his rimless glasses, maybe it's his hair, slight (Continued on 1’aye Two) Meeting To Be Held of Canoe Fete Officials Positions of Floats To Be Drawn This Afternoon At Four o’Cloek NEW FEATURES PLAN Vodvil Arts ami Choruses Are Gradually Nearing Completion Drawings for places in the an nual Canoe Fete will be made at a meeting of representatives from Bill East an nouses partic ipating, this af ternoon in room 3, Johnson hall, according to an annou n c e m e n t made Monday by Bill East, chair man of the fete directorate.
