R. 10,000 Years 0/d BATON ROUGE (AP) Specimens of a cypress stump unearthed at the base of 60-foot bluffs near the Port Hudson battlefield have been found to be more than 10,000 years old. The results of a carbon dating test was received by Louisiana State University. The information could bring a reappraisal of geological theories about the age of thje lower Mississippi River Valley. Last fall, Dr. Clair Brown, LSU professor of botany and plant pathology, had estimated the specimens were up to 15,000 years old. Dr. Brown announced the re suits of the carbon test and said more facts are needed before any revision of geologica theory could be considered. "The results of the carbon dating test point to a revision of the age of the pleistocene prairie," he said. The results are borne out by another recent finding near the Port Hudson battleground by Sherwood M. Gagliano, New Orleans, a member of the LSU coastal studies institute. Gagliano had bored down to the same level as the earlier stumps and extracted organic matter. He then found that the matter was about 12,000 years old. Gagliano's test bore was taken about one-half mile east of the river bluffs. look into the advantages of low cost in a completely furnished NEW MOON mobile home $4995 $500 DOWN 9OM OC Monthly '"•'iW Payments 84 PAYMENTS 100% FINANCING AVAILABLE AIR CONDITIONER 3 BEDROOMS AUTOMATIC WASHER l'/a BATHS • 55'xIO' FREE 500 MILE DELIVERY STARS — b(?.
