Aboard three the stu- dents dusted along the squigg- ly trails that would barely pass as roads beneath a unrelenting sun. Although it was hot most of the students didn't seem to mind it was a good change from university routine. Enrolled in a summer course that concludes Fri- the amateur geologists were accompanied by geo- graphy prcfessor Dr. George Zietert and his academic as- Stan Young. _ The trip took the students into an area south of the air- port and two milas west as Dr. Ziebert drove the leading he comment- ed on the terrain next to the once a lake. The whirlwind tour of the St. Mary region lasted about two hours and consisted of an examination of some of the geological features which ths students had been dealing with in their studies. First stop was at a point overlooking the St. Mary Riv- where the students disem- barked for a look at the shal- low winding stream below. The buzzing of a crop of grasshoppers could be heard in the background amid the good natured kidding of the a spirit comrade- ship that was as character- istic of the trip as the avowed purpose. As the students gazed their attention was called to the downward slipping of the bank near the rivsr bed below. In the valley were the out- lines of a long ago that had curved its way in a semi- circle outside the meander- ing of the present river. And to the right lay alkali depos- its where an oxbow lake had been. Along the slopes were masses of soil which had slipped downward and left the appearance of a piece of crumpled cardboard that had been cut here and there with razor. To the side were northeast- facing slopes indented with the lines of cutting water that had made the slope un- stable. A little later the group moved westward to Pothole tributary of the St. Mary bumping down the road to a creek bottom. And if any of the party felt old one look at the side of a hill at the creek bottom dispelled all thoughts of at least in terms of geogra- phy. Dr. Ziebert scooped from the hill a handful of volcanic ash more than years old that had been deposited after an explosion at Crater Lake 85 miles southeast of Eugene. Ore. The party made its way from Pothole Creek to the valley of the St. Mary across a section of land that had once been covered by water. Across the river were pieces of rock in the old river bank that had been forced up- ward when the bed rock had while along the river' valley to the south lay re-' mains of a shelter that had fallen as the slope had slip- ped leaving rock and soil rea- dy to slide again with rain.
