infor mation received from Prof A O Thomas department of geology of the University of Iowa in com menting on the huge bone found several weeks ago in one of the gravel pits of the Ideal Sand and gravel company The bone was approximately 3 feet in length 5 inches in diameter and weighed 50 pounds It was well preserved but showed a tendency to crumble after a long exposure to the air Other large bones and teeth have been found before on the property of the sand Gravel company Bones Scattered by Floods An extract from Professor Thomas letter follows The bones and teeth found in the sand pit of the Ideal Sand and Gravel company are evidently those of an elephant or of a mastodon These hugs beasts roamed over Iowa in great herds thousands of years ago They were more or less contemporaneous withthe Great ice Age and their bones scattered by floods from the melting ice were often buried In sand and other debris laid down by the glacial streams mastodon and elephant were as apundarit In America as the buffalo has been in the near past Both the mastodon and the elephant lived in America after the disappearance of the ice sheets as proved by the burial of their remains in peat bogs Elephants Mastodons Related Authorities on prehistoric life de clare that the mammoths or ele phants and the mastodons of prehis toric times were closely related both having the same general ap pearance The teeth in the mastodon are said to have had large trans verse ridges while the teethin the mammoth are believed to have been made up of many plates of enamel The forehead of the elephant was high and bulging while that of the mastodon is said to have been tow The elephants are believed to have been covered with an undercoating of fine wool but whether the mas todon had this protection is not known Huge molars unearthed In the gravel pits measured approximately 6 Inches In length 4 in width and 3 in thickness War VeteranPlanned DBS MOINES July 13 neral services for George
