Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 5, 1976 B3 UNITED STATES HEALTH TESTING CLINIC Archeologist Believes Science, Not History, Tells More of Past 39 VITAL TESTS BY OUR LICENSED MEDICAL STAFF asr "28" "eG" I ut i'ccr if it II l M, J I LI 1 along the walls of the lake. Scientists say the discoveries are important because, for the first time, there is a belief man and these extinct animals coexisted in Florida. "There was doubt that man lived in Florida as long as 11,000 years ago and hardly any belief at all that man lived at the same time as these animals because they were supposed to have become extinct 25,000 years ago," Cockrell said. But the human skeletons are 10,200 years old, and if they were found with the animal skeletons, the animals might have existed longer than originally thought, he said. learn what those mistakes were and avoid repeating them." As administrator of the state's ar-cheological research center, Cockrell has studied sunken Spanish ships of the 1700s and 1800s. But lately a great deal of his work has taken him to Warm Mineral Springs between Sarasota and Fort Myers. In water nearly 50 feet below the surface of a spring-fed lake 120 yards wide, well-preserved skeletons of extinct giant ground sloths, saber-tooth cats and Florida cougars have been found with skeletons of man, most likely Paleo Indians. These finds have been made on ledges Urinalysis (for sugar) and 5 other important determinations. Pulmonary function screening (lung disorders). Blood pressure, temperature, pulse and respiration.

The Florida Bicentennial Commission presented a $630 grant to the Urban League of Palm Beach County last week to pay most of the cost of 23 reference books on accomplishments by blacks to be placed in the county's libraries. Another $336 was supplied by the United Way of Palm Beach County to help pay the $42 cost of each book, a special edition of "The Negro Almanac." About 20 of the 38-inch thick, 1,-206-page volumes were provided in September by the national Urban League, and these were distributed to the libraries of high schools in the county. The additional 23 will go to municipal, parochial high school, and college libraries which hadn't received them, local Urban League director Percy Lee said. "Our aim is to complete all of the schools," supplying the junior high school libraries and then the elementary school libraries with copies which hopefully will become available later, he said. By LARRY MLYNCZAK Pott Staff Wrlttr Mankind, says archeologist Wil-burn Cockrell, knows very little of his past, and, thus, even less of his future. That's why archeology is important. "Archeology is the only true record of history we have," Cockrell said last week at the West Palm Beach Science Museum and Planetarium where he discussed discoveries on the west coast of Florida. "Man has been writing for only the past 5,000 years, and the first 2,-000 years of history was merely made up of shopkeepers' records. "Most of the remainder has been made by historians, but most of them were hired and paid by emperors, kings and presidents, and you can bet history has been distorted," he said. So history mainly is second-hand information, handed down through the generations. "But the items found through archeology have been unaltered through the thousands of years. They are as they originally were. When they are found, we can see history first hand." Archeology might, on first look, seem unimportant who cares what primitive man ate, what he used for tools, what his lifestyle was? But Cockrell contends mankind needs this information now more than ever before. "We are approaching perhaps the most perilous period in our history," he said. "The population will double in 25 years and the earth and its resources may not be able to handle 7 billion people. The technology is there to kill all of us with a push of a button, or to kill all of us by pollution, destruction of the ozone layer, nuclear disasters and hundreds of other means. "How are we going to adjust to all of this? How can we handle all this technology at our disposal? What will become of man's behavior when he is overcrowded? Archeology is a study of man's past behavior, he said. "Man has had to adjust in order to survive, but along the way, he made countless grave mistakes. We should (0)ff(dj IT FEELS LIKE SILK.
