Martin, chiet curator oi . the Chicago Natural History Mu- I scum's department of anthropology, hopes to find, among othei things, how the Mogollon Indian. 1 got along without going to war. The Mogollons, 'a unique tribe, -enjoyed life In rooted houses while most of their neighbors existed like animals in the hills and forests. The expedition already has unearthed a 5000-year-old house, prob ably (he earliest house yet founo in North America. But the Mogollons were not merely builders. There is conclusive evidence to prove that they were farmers and potters, too. They produced some astonishingly advanced examples of pottery, the designs : of which Indicate » high artistic development. , 'I Their farming was crude, consisting mostly of gathering nuUs berries and seeds, but it was still i a form of agriculture. Archaeologists trace Mogollon civ- flizalfon hack to about 200 A.D., : when they somehow got the idea • of building pit houses with strong ' central supporting posts of wood. Time pit houses ranged from 13 to 28 feet in diameter, with a floor 10 to 40 inches below ground level: Storage pits were dug In the floors and covered with branches, and.the Mogollon buried their dead In the floors. Evidence gathered by the expedition has been dated by geological means. The diggers ; have turned up remains of early dogs aand horses, as well as hones of the North American mammoth\ and camel. , Housewives of the long-extnct Mogollon tribe have been 'polled" to determine their preference for various typees of pottery vessels, in order to classify culture phases chronologically. Vessels with polished exteriors, for instance, were known to have been used hi a later culture than one with rough exteriors. Anybody can be an archaclo- 3ist in the Mogollon territory, which is not far from here. Pit house villages with groups oE 10 or more houses are easy to spot oh the surface. The real detective work comes after [he 'actual excavation, when lives and customs must be reconstructed from such evidence as fragments of stone, splinters of bone and bits of broken potte_ry. Dr. Martin explains the expedition may help complete the still 1 sketchy autobiography of mankind I He thinks that we may. perhaps i even learn the secret of peace from ] a race long dead.

A gro'ip headed by Mario Fon- .tanl, an" authority on Roman and early medieval prcheotogy, may have fovnd the ruins of a legendary town, reportedly sunk In the Ingoon shallow waters, during the first centuries of our era. , When the Huns headed by Kin? Attila swept across the Alps to the Italian plains, the population of the towns of Aqullcta and Bibione fled for their lives. Atllla destroyed j Aquilcla and maybe also Biblonc. I The Inhabitants of the two town; | had fled. Part went to Grado In \ the lagoon north of Trieste and the remainder fled by boat. They were ' blown by heavy north-eastern Adrl- \ atic winds to the site on which Venice was founded. Of the old town of Biblone only the legend remained. After wee^ of searching the bottom of the canals of the lagoon In front of the little town of Marano, Fonlanl. wearing a. light diving suit, discovered a wide ston- bank with • monumental stairway descending Into a greater depth. It may have been the basement of i Roman temple, Fontanl said.
