A piece stuck in him and in a few days worked itself to his heart. He's okay now, and all sel to go home to San Diego.

Southernmost California Holds Link with Past LOS ANGELES —W>)— On Cnpe 5an Lucas, the southernmost extremity of Lower California, exists one of the last strongholds of the flora and fauna which perhaps characterized Southern California several mlllenitims ago. Slowly retreating from aridity and other factors, this semltroplcal area contains plant and animal life that furnish an important link with file past. Two U. C. 1,. A. zoologists. Charles Lowe, Jr.. and Kenneth Norrls. are on an expedition to gather plant and animal specimens in the area. The expedition Is being sponsored Jointly by the University and the Palm Springs Desert Museum Tile zoologists report that distribution of the animals alone may tell a rather complete story about the climatic changes that have taken place in southern California over a period of many years. The fact that the same species exist In Isolated areas In various latitudes along the coast Indicates that the arid regions in between have only recently (geologically speaking) been formed.
