Scientist Tells About fireal Cats.
Especially the Sabre-tooth
New Haven, Conn.—A climax in;
evolution, an extinct tiger with
stabbing weapons, was described to
the national academy of science
here at Vale university.
Speaking on the cats of Rancho
la Brea. Dr. John Campbell Mer
riain. president of the Carnegie in
stitution of Washington, interpret
ed the story told by bones , of great,
predatory cats, some bigger than
modern lions, which once lived in
In one of them, the sabre-tooth
tiger, he showed a wonder of evo
lution and nature's method of alt
ering living conditions which wtped
them off the earth.
Discoveries in quite a different
phase of evolution were reported by
Dr. Ross G. Harrison of Yale uni
versity. His laboratory has traced
the source, or close to it, of pro
duction of legs by salamanders.
Asphalt pits on Rancho la Brea
at Los Angeles have yielded bones
of 1.500 sabre tooth tigers. Battle
scars on the bones tell almost the
life story of one such tiger. Details
of their fighting aparatus and even
of the structure of their inner ears
have been developed by Dr. Mar
riam with collaboration of Dr. Ches
This tiger was an "acme" of of
fensive animal, specialized for at
tack probably upon sluggish power
ful beasts with thick hides.
He was about as big as modern
tigers, with body closer to the
ground. The attacking forequarters
were over-emphasized. the hind
quarters slender. This tiger was not
built to run away.
With small brain and powerful
body," said Dr. Merriam "and with
ferocity born of both, this cat was
more insistent on reaching and clos
ing with its prey than probably any
other predatory mammal of the
fauna. Its truculence is further sug
gested by the many evidences of di
sease resulting from injury and
seen in elements of the skeleton
and to a less extent in the skull.
"In consummating an attack the
head would be drawn back by the
powerful muscles lodged in the
neck and attached to the occiput
while the lower jaw, moving
tnrough a wide arc, permitted the
sabre-like canine teeth to Junction
as stabbing weapons."
One tooth found at Rancho te
Brea, although broken, was eight or
nine inches long, indicating an ori
ginal span of nearly a foot. The
teeth had serrated borders, which
Dr. Merriam said undoubtedly were
used for tearing and ripping. Al

Tips To Farmer
For 1932 Crops
| iF H. Jeter in Charlotte Observer'
I The ancient Jew* had a period
j designed as a time of atonement toi
I oast sins and devout Jews kept this
j period very assiduously. The year
! 1932 has been designed as the
[ "Year of Preparation" by those who
j are in close touch with farm af
i fairs in North Carolina 1 do not.
j mean to say that farmers of this
, state have sinned so grievously t ,
j poor methods of farming that they
i should observe a period of atone
j ment. Some should: but. not ali.
j During the past two years, some
j good farming has been done in this
state but on mo t farms it has been
impossible to make a profit no mat
ter how well the work was done.
The outlook for 1932 is that not
much money will be made again
j but wise planning may prevent coo
j slderable loss. Then since not much
! monc-y is to be made, it seems oniv
I wise that this coming year be mac'<
| a period of preparation for the bet
! ter days that are to come I was!
j talking this past week with Enos C.
Blair, extension agronomist at Slate
college, who probably travels more
continuously visiting farms in alt
parts of the state than any other
person in North Carolina,
Mr. Blair has developed what he
thinks is a sound plan for this
coming year of preparation. He pre
sented his plan at a conference o'.
agronomy workers held at the col
lege recently a«d had the pleasure
of seeing this group adopt it as or.c
of the best outlines of work that
any farmer could follow. There a’
even fundamental points to the
First, the acreage to cotton, to
bacco peanuts and other cash crops
must be reduced. This will be done
anyway, Mr. Blair says, but th»
plan goes on the supposition that
every farmer will be wise enough to
do this la planning for 1932.
Second, on those farms where
livestock is the major source of in
come, home grown feeds must be
used to the extent they are avail
able and if not. available, they
should be planted. The owne
should substitute home-grown feecu,
of some kind for those he has been
buying in the past. Buy only tho-e
which cannot, be obtained or ex
changed for in the home commun
Third, enlarge the live-at-home
idea until it is more complete than
it was in 1991. Borne folks say this
is foolish because they have more
corn, hay and other feedstuffs than
they earn use now. If so, get some
more livestock and sell the feed as
meat, wool, milk, eggs or beef. Their
is always a sale for these products.
If not at home, certainly m the
larger markets of the east.
Fourth, be careful in the use ol
commercial fertilizers next year
Only the right kind at the right
price should be purchased. Where
possible, cash should be paid so as
to get the best possible price. This
should be accompanied by a sharp
reduction in acreage of those crop3
requiring fertilizers and a corre
sponding increase in those which
require little fertilizer.
Fifth, turn under legumes t« im
prove the soil that better yields
may be made when farm prices in
crease. This means sowing lespe
deza on every acre of small grain
