(AP Wirephoto) In Subdivision Near Urbana Ditching Machine Uncovers Mastodon Bones URBANA, 111., —Ice Age mastodons once roamed east central Illinois. This was revealed last week when remains of an elephant- like animal were kicked up by a ditching machine in Lineolnwood subdivision east of Urbana. Richard Burke and Lloyd Nelson, both of Oakwood, who were operating the machine, cut through fragments of bone and turned up three gigantic teeth. Floyd Lee of Lee, Inc., excavation engineers and contractors of Oakwood, reported the find to Dr. Charles Collinson, paleontologist with the Illinois State, Geological Survey. Dr.. Collinson identified the re- -o- -o- -o- mains as belonging to Mammut. americanus, the American mastodon, and an important paleon- t.ological discovery. The ten pounds of fragmenta] bone he collected are now being analyzed by Stephen Kim, radioche- mist in charge of the survey's radiocarbon analysis laboratory, to determine their age. Kim, a specialist in precision Carbon 14 (C14) dating of materials up to 40,000 years old. has dissolved the bone and will make a C14 analysis of collagen, a proteinous material, still preserved within the fragments. •o- -o- -o- An age of approximately 11,000 years is anticipated. Examination of the mastodon site by survey Pleistocene gel- ogists. and x-ray analysis of clay in which the remains w e r e found indicate the animal was buried in a pond on top of the Urbana Moraine after the glacial ice sheet had withdrawn to the north. Scattering and breakage of the bones suggest the elephant - like creature may have been killed near the edge of the pond and its remains slumped toward the deeper parts of the water. The American mastodon was a primitive relative of the more modern woolly mammoth and lived prior to and during the Pleistocene Epoch or Ice Age. The species may have been exterminated by man within the last: several thousand years. The beasts, mainly browsers, lived in timbered areas where they fed on the branches of shrubs and trees. Their large cheek teeth are distinctive and are easily identified. Parts of all of the teeth from the left jaw of the specimen were found. Plans for further excavation of the animal are uncertain.
