The an- nouncement said the ruling was made by the Supreme Sacred Con- gregation of the Holy Office, over which the Pope presides. The controversial group led by the Reverend Leonard J. Feeney, S.

By Art Everett New York Extensive remains of a primitive group of hunters, who roamed the American West thousands of years before Christ's birth, have been unearthed near Cody, Wyo., it was disclosed today. Dr. Loren Eiseley of the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania said' the Wyoming camp site prob- ably dates back to between 000 and years before Christ. He called the find one of the most important ever made in connection with the culture of the Yuma, the nomadic group who disappeared centuries ago as a cultural unit. They were among the earliest known in- habitants of the new world. Dr: Eiseley estimated that the ancient camp site covered about 600 square feet of a ter- race overhanging Sage creek, five miles northeast of Cody. The valuable deposit of tools, weapons and food remains were preserved through the centuries by dusty desert sands, now covering the camp site to a depth of about ten inches. The yuma were foot hunters who roved the high plains the American west in search of bison. Evidences of their ex- istence have been found before, Dr. Eiseley said, but never so extensively or in a deposit that may enable scientists to fix more accurately the period in which they lived. For example, he said, from the bison bones on the site it may be possible to determine 'whether the Yuma lived before certain types of bison became extinct late in the ice age. No human bones were found, Dr. Eiseley said. The Yuma roamed the same general area of the Folsom man, who it is believed lived about years ago. Dr. Eiseley said the Cody site again reveals clearly that the yuma and the Folsom cultures were distinct. An expedition began its work on the Cody site last August 5 under the direction of Dr. Glenn Jepsen, Sinclair profes- sor of geology at Princeton uni- versity. Princeton sponsored exploration. Dr. Eiseley was called in by Dr. Jepsen to assist. Dr. Eiseley is chairman of the de- partment of anthropology at the university museum. He called the Cody campsite "a find for which I have been waiting 20 years." The Yuma "were one of the two or three earliest known horizons in the new he added. The campsite first was dis- covered some years ago by James Allen, a Cody collector and retired businessman. He was hunting arrow heads when he found yuma materials ex- posed by erosion of the soil.

The House insisted upon another year of war- time price floors. A frantic session-end compromise jammed the two bills together the House plan to start this, year and the Senate plan next year. President Truman and his sup- porters, especially Brannan, made a political harvest of this in the No- vember elections. The President ac- cused Republicans of sticking a pitchfork in the farmers' back. He carried enough usually Republican Midwestern farm states to win the presidency. Decision Needed Now both Republicans and Demo- crats are nervously watching these farm areas and attempting to decide what to do. Despite firm rejections by both the House and Senate with their Democratic majorities, Brannan still is thumping for'his own sub- sidy program. A Democratic po- litical machine is aiding him.
