tfEOSRO TIMES, JAKUARY 18, 1923. THREK TURKISH VIRGINIA BURLEY DISCOVER EVIDENCES OF PRE-GLACIAL MAN Denver, Colo., Jan. 11.—Make way for the pre-glacial man, or memories of him! ThaT*s~wKaTl!cieniists are doing in temporarialy discarding the chronologies of Indians, Mound Builders and even the Aztecs of old Mexico in their •efforts to establish, if possible, pre- glacial usage of a rock image unearthed by W. L. Chalmers near Grand Lake, high in the Colorado Rockies. He found the 66-pound :stone six feet below the surface while enlarging an irrigation reservoir on his homestead. Mammoth animals outlined in the stone of bfue granite are contemporaneous with the Cro-Magnon period. The flat nose is generally associated with a race preceding the Aztecs, according to J. Allard Jeancon, curator of the Colorado Historical and Natural History Society and at one time special archaeologist for the Bureau of American Ethnology •at Washington. "If this stone can be proven genuine it is the biggest find in all anthropological research and antedates anything on the American Continent going to establish ' the remote antiquity of man," continued Mr. Jeancon. "I have never seen such remarkable outlines of dinosaurs and nvito- •dons." The rock image respresents early man sitting and holding a tablet with hands that have but three fingers. On the tablet are hieroglyphics which, in a measure, resemble signs of the Aztecs, Utes and Mormons. If the -rock image is genuine, then all the others are copied from the symbols made by pre-glacial man; if not, then I the imitation is unusually compelling. Who knows, Scientists in New York, Washington and Santa Fe are trying to decipher these characters, according to Mr. Chalmers. I The image thru changes in the con; sistency of the rock has become hard! er than steel. Geologists who have , c ,een the stone say it would be impossible to make these impressions today by rubbing with flint implements. It. is fourteen inches high, nine inches across the tablet and about twelve inches thru to the back. j Glaciers \veer still active in cutting down the Rockies as recently as a few thousand years ago, according to T. M. Van Tuyl, professor of geology at the Colorado School of Mines. He has not seen the image, but has found alternate dark and light colored banded rocks in the Denver Mountain Parks near to where the stone was found which he believes date back to the Archean period, close to the creation of the world. This indicates the numerous uplifts in the Rockies, several times nearly worn away, and the contention of certain geologists that the stone may date back thousands, if not millions of years. In the meantime Mr. Chalmers is receiving requests from museums and research societies for the privilege of taking plaster cast impressions to study the rock image under a strong glass, or to borrow the freak stone. o Fifth Annual Training School, Southwest Baptist Colleger, Bolivar, Missouri.
