Get peace Only by halting in filtration of troops and arms. Taylor told a news con Ference after a meeting of the National Security coun cil Friday that he thinks the chances of red chinese intervention in the vietnamese War Are very slight. Y Robert Goldenstein p science writer Chicago a one of the world s most renowned anthropologists has uncovered evidence that three entirely different Spe cies of prehistoric Man lived at the same time and in the same place about a million years ago. This startling scientific claim was made by or. Louis s. B. Leakey director of the Coryden me Morial museum Nairobi Kenya. Leakey was the Lead off speaker at a three Day con Ference on the origin of Man at the University of Chicago s Center for continuing education. The British anthropologist w h o s e excavations from tit olduvai Gorge in East Africa have attracted worldwide attention announced he had found a Skull of a third manlike creature called a pith can thro Pine. In earlier excavations at the same site he found Fossil remains belonging to two other manlike groups called Zinc Anthropius and Homo Kabilis. Leakey told some 300 scientists attending t h e conference Friday night that All three species lived at the same site at the same time. He said his claim Means that nature experimented w i t h various primitive manlike creatures before deciding on a satisfactory Stock that led to present Day Man. It also contradicts old textbook state ments that evolution took place i single jumps with in a single species. Leakey showed slide Pic Tures of the Skull that was reconstructed from More than 100 fragments. The Skull was crushed by cattle that trampled the area in search of water. Although olduvai s new fragmented Skull is older and smaller it has similarities to the far East s heavy bowed Java Man and peking Man of about 400,000 to 600,000 y e a r s ago. These Are regarded As extinct cousins of Man. L e a k e y also reported that thousands of primitive tools had been found at the site and that anthropologists have been trying to determine whether t h e y were made by Homo Habil s or Zinc Anthropius. Asserting that his new also May have made tools he said we have been living in a fool s Paradise. We be been assuming that if tools were found along with manlike creatures t h e n these creatures made the tools. But now it appears that any one of three Crea Tures might have made the Leakey s excavation site goes Back 2 million years. The oldest Fossil of the Zinc Anthropius dates Back 1.75 m i l l i o n years but o t h e r specimens of this species Are Only 1 million years old. The Homo a bilis dates Back from 1 to 2 million years ago. Rain still in Iowa forecast the possibility of rain still Hung Over Iowa saturday. Rain started falling in Cedar rapids about 1 30 p. M.
