A band of seven bearded, sun bronzed men and a 14 year old boy have retraced the mile voyage made 300 years ago by the young mapmaker Louis Jolliet and Jesuit missionary Jacques Marquette. The 20th century voyageurs "re discovered" the American Midwest and rekindled a pride in the heritage of the mid con- tinent. The arduous four month and two day odyssey began at St Ignace, Mich., at the up- uppermost point of Lake Michigan last May 17. Following the route as recorded in the historic jour- nals of Marquette. the eight paddled their two 20 foot canoes down the shores of Lake Michigan to Wisconsin's Fox River, por- taged to the Wisconsin River, followed the current down the Mississippi to the mouth of the Arkansas River, then retraced their steps back up the Mississippi into the Illinois River, portaged again to the Chicago River, then back up Lake Michigan to Green Bay, Wis. They were authentically garbed in indigo dyed blouses made from homespun sailcloth, hand woven sashes, leather moccasins, and calf length breeches. "We'never had any doubt in our minds that we would make says Reid Lewis, a 32 year old French teacher irom Elgin, 111., who portrayed the rugged Louis Jolliet, leader of the ex- pedition. Despite painstaking efforts to be authentic, there were some elements of the original voyage that can't be duplicated. "We couldn't begin to have the fear of the unknown that they the modern explorer explains. "They didn't know whether the human beings out there would be friendly or not. And the Indians had warned about river monsters." The original exploration had been commissioned by Count Louis de Frontenac, governor of New France, who had hopes of discovering an all water route to the Pacific and the trading riches of China. Instead, the expedition opened up the vast Mississippi Valley territory to French settlement: by 1748, the Illinois country exported 000 pounds of wheat flour to New Orleans. One of the chief differences in. the modern voyage, says voyageur Dean Campbell, was mosquito netting. "I fail to un- derstand how they survived without he acknowledges. "Of course, they could build smudge fires and wear a layer of bear grease." Another change: The ex- "We certainly couldn't drink the river water." said James Phillips, a biology teacher and one of the voyageurs. In some stretches of the trip, the river stench was so bad the canoeists sprayed their water soaked hands with Lysol: their breeches became stained at one point when they jumped into the river to pull their canoes by ropes through the fast flow- ing current. A pollution ring was clearly visible at water level on their canoes The expedition encountered an oil slick on the Mississippi caused by a holding pond near Alton, 111. They saw dead wood ducks and gasping carp on the Des Plaines River in Illinois At each stop the voyageurs were, greeted by the "We have seen nothing like this river we enter, as regards its fertility of soil, its prairies and woods; its cattle, elk, deer, wildcats, bust- ards, swans ducks parroquets, and even beaver. -From the Journal of Pere Jacques Marquette, August, 1673 pedition used two canoes made from fiber glass patterned with a tarlike pitch to look like birchbark. Real birchbark would never have held up under conditions in today's polluted rivers, the ex- plorers explain. Jolliet and Marquette and their party hunted for game, fished, ate wild nuts and berries, and drank from fresh, bubbling springs. Their modern counterparts had to rely on the hospitality of the towns they visited and the provisions of their shore party that followed them the entire route townspeople. They responded with a full hour long program, singing French songs used long ago to keep cadence while paddling and to while away the lonely hours on the river; and reliving the history of the expedition and describing the fertile land they "discovered." "Many people today think of this part of the country being explored and settled from east to Reid Lewis told the audiences. "But it was not. Europeans discovered the Midwest from north to south on the rivers by canoe. This is the legacy of our community of the rivers." The idea for the re enact- ment of the Jolliet Mar- quette expedition was the dream of one man, Ralph Frese. a Chicago blacksmith. A canoeing enthusiast, Mr. Frese built the two fiber glass canoes used in the ex- pedition and helped to select the crew. Each member brought his own expertise to the effort: Reid Lewis taught them French and the voyageur songs. Dean Campbell wove the material, designed and made the clothes: the Rev. Charles McEnery, a Jesuit priest, fittingly filled the role of Father Marquette, William Dwyer, Lee Broske, Jim Phillips, and Ken Lewis (Reid's all compe- tent canoeists, rounded out the list of voyageurs; while Jeff LeClerc, a 14 year old Boy Scout from Elgin, III., portrayed the Indian boy who joined the expedition after the first month. For months prior to the launch of this year's ex- pedition, the adventurers went through a rigorous physical conditioning program, studied history, French, and assembled the necessary paraphernalia. While on the river they kept a demanding cadence 55 to 60 strokes a minute for an hour, then rested for 15 minutes. This schedule enabl- ed them to travel 10 miles an hour downstream, and 3 up- stream. "The voyageurs of 300 years ago would be amazed at the big things we said Jim Phillips, at a riverside ceremony, while gazing out over the Chicago skyline punc- tuated with hundred story buildings. "But they would have wept at the lo'ss of the little things. The prairie and the tall grasses are gone. So are the buffalo herds, the passenger pigeons, and the Carolina parrakeet. And the clean water and clean air and pure food. They would have asked, did we do to LETHBRIDGE ALLIANCE T CHURCH MINISTER: 0.

Bulldozers and excavators diggiijg deep into the ground to lay foundations for new buildings have unearthed an estimated worth of gold rings, bracelets, diamond broaches, earrings, a set of pure gold teeth, gold-rimmed spectacles, gold coins in cor- pses' pockets and silver name plates on the outside of the caskets. Most of the finds have oc- curred on former Church of Kngland sites, rural graveyards attached to small country churches, hundreds of which have been declared redundant and the sites sold off to developers in recent years. The law in Britain is that any such valuables found by developers belong to descen- dants of the original corpses, if they can be traced. The Church of England says: "Any grave disturbed means that the remains have to be, under Church law, decently re-buried. And that also means we have to contact descendants of the dead person whenever we can locate them. Every effort is made to do this and obviously, any valuables found in a grave go straight to them. "But if a descendant cannot be traced, the valuables are turned over to the chancellors of the diocese, and he makes a Church court order as to their disposition. "When this happens, they usually go to the local priest or minister of the parish in which they were found who decides a suitable cause." Often the valuables are sold and the money realized used to repair churches still in use. LAKEVIEW MENNONITE BRETHERN CHURCH 15 Ave. 29 St. So.
