Discovery of Ancient Pueblo
T . ..y.
New york.-i-The .discovery of an,
ancient . hill, city and fort of the
prehistoric Pueblo Indians on Black
Mesa, Arizona, by the Rainbow
Bridge-Monument Valley scientific
expedition was the most significant
find of the expedition, according to
Dr. Charles del Norte Winning, field
director, who returned recently
from Arizona. .
: The Rainbow Bridge Monument
Valley expedition numbered thirty
college professors a n d ; museum
Jtechniciana and forty undergraduate-and
" graduate students ' repre
senting almost every university in
th"country. It is a co-operative enterprise;-
each representative shar
ing' equally the. expedition's ex
penses. Ansel F. Hall, chief of the
field division of the national park
service, was supervisor.
City Difficult to Locate.
Black Mesa, ' which lies south of
the Painted desert in Arizona, was
referred to by the Indians on the
Navajo reservation as the "Big
House." There were consistent re
ports of the city's existence among
the Indians, but for the past four
summers the expedition could not
locate the site.
"There is a great possibility that
Black Mesa has been the cross
roads of Northern and Southern
migration. The pottery and archi
tecture unearthed there show defi
nitely a fusion of two distinct
cultures," Dr. Winning declared.
Dr. Winning is a professor at New
York University's School of Com
merce. Actual excavation was not started
during the past summer because
the rainy season was about to set in
at the time of discovery. Walls of
a protective fort standing three to
twelve feet high and running two
to three hundred yards in length
were found. In addition, clearly
defined walls of approximately one
hundred rooms and much archaic
pottery were unearthed.
"A further study of the grounds
which the expedition will carry out
next summer will undoubtedly give
significant information as to the life
of the people living at the time,"
Dr. Winning said.
Artifacts in Abundance.
Unusual artifacts were found in
great abundance in a burial ground
of the Twelfth or Thirteenth century
at the base of Black Mesa. The
site is located a few miles from
Kayenta, a trading post in North
eastern Arizona. "Twenty-three
burials have already been studied
and considerable data on Pueblo
cultures on Monument Valley have
been found," the field director
Pottery jars in large numbers
also were found in the burials.
Many of them appeared to have
been filled with food. The Pueblo
Indians burled food and certain im
plements of war, "believing they
would need them in the next
A large water jar, the -most im
portant piece of pottery found by
the expedition on the trip, is esti
mated to be more than 1,000 years
old. The jar, pieced together from
more than thirty fragments, is well
preserved and its decorations re
veal the art of ten centuries ago.
The artifact is now being studied
by. Charles , Amsden of the South
western' Museum of Los Angeles.
J Well preserved skeleton, remains
of a human being who lived in the
Arizona cliffs more than 1,500 years
ago were found. They were located
in the cist of a Pueblo Indian dwell
ing. The skeleton, probably male,
was pierced by a email wood ehaft.

THI3 UNUSUAL camera shot shows Henry Ford (right) and Edsel
Ford with their newest product, the Ford V-8 for 1937. The picture
was taken at Dearborn during the newspapermen's preview of the new
car, which excited unusual Interest because of Its completely new
appearance and the advent of the 60 horsepower V-8 engine, giving a
choice of engine sizes to American n'?r!rts.
Crop insurance was advocated in
the recent campaign by both candi
dates for the Presidency, and seems
destined to become the next interest
ing development in farm legislation.
In The Progessive Farmer we find
this explanation of the most favored
plan as it would apply to cotton:

by Secretary Wallace calls for the

es in kind. That is, the cotton farm
er would pay his premium in cotton
and receive cotton to cover his losses.
"As present the plan calls for the
payment to the farmer up to 75 per
cent of his average yield over a six
year period. For example:
"If a fanner made 120 bales of
cotton during- a six-year period or
an annual average of 20 bales, he
would be insured against an annual
loss of anything less than 75 percent
of 20 bales, which is 15 bales.

, "Skeptics say that 60 percent of
the average, production is the high
i est protection that can be given with
out -loss to the government. Others
say that six years is too short a per
iod upon which to base calculations.
Secretary Wallace's answer to these
objections is that even if the govern-
I ment does lose money on crop insur
ance, it will be cheaper than relief.
"Another objection is that crop in
surance would discourage sound farm
practices, the farmer depending on
crop insurance rather than good seed,
fertilizer, etc., to make an average
yield. However, inasmuch as the
farmer would be insured up to only
75 nercent of his average vield. there
! would still be the incentive to go
ahead and make the best possible
yield. A farmer would hardly be
satisfied with 15 bales when good
farming is likely to bring him 20 or
even 25 bales."
CARD OF THANKS
We take this means of expressing to

Sarah Elizabeth Trueblood. For each
thoughtful act and each expression of
sympathy we are most grateful.
