12-Tuesday,May18,19(5 Hedlmis My fads Buffalo once roamed tfie plains of California Southern California was a few centuries ago, a land where the buffalo roamed and were felled along river banks by Indian arrows. This previously unknown California prehistory came to light recently as members of UCLA's Archaeological Survey probed for archaeological material in advance of freeway construction. Excavation of the archaeological site, along what appears to have been a sluggish river that meandered through a marshy plain, yielded buffalo bones in association with arrowheads and tools of a prehistoric civilization. Miraculously preserved in a hard clay stratum four feet beneath the surface were hoof prints of buffalo and elk. The prints are those of the type of buffalo that thundered across the Great Plains in historic Avocado crop gets started in Tulare Southern California's two- month avocado gap has opened the way for a small development of tliat subtropical specialty in Tulare County. University of California Farm Advisor James H. LaRue reports about 100 acres in the county are now producing early-maturing avocados that reach the market in October and early November. This brief period falls between the marketing of Southern California's Haas variety, which starts ripening in the summer, and Fuerte, a winter variety. Though Tulare County is now the state's biggest citrus growing county, LaRue said he anticipates no avocado boom. While there is a history of avocado growing in Tulare County that goes beck to the late 1800's, the UC farm advisor said, farmers have been discouraged from overplanting by freezes such as that in 1962-63, when trees in the valley were completely defoliated. LaRue said two varieties, Zutano and Bacon, are showing promise in filling the short gap in production south of the Te- hachapis. Both are Mexican types, originally selected for hardiness and early maturity in Southern California. While San Joaquin Valley avO' cado history has not encouraged heavy development of the in•' 'stry, LaRue said, last fall's crop in Tulare County was good and brought growers a good return. To see what the future might bring, he is experimenting with about 50 avocado varieties, including a number of University-developed hybrids. In two locations in the county he is grafting new varieties on established trees to test them for quality and the all-important maturity date, which determines their marketability. times. Tliey are the first such remains found in Southern California in association with Indian artifacts. The evidence indicates that at about the time Columbus discovered America, Indians were hunting buffalo on the Los Angeles plains. The site is located along the route of the Marina Freeway in Culver City. Excavation of the site was sponsored by the State Divisions of Highways and Beaches and Parks. It was a part o£ a program by tlie two state agencies in which the UCLA Archaeological Survey is commissioned to retrieve archaeological material from the path of planned freeways. Clue to the important archaeological find was furnished by a boyhood adventure of UCLA anthropology graduate student Chester King, who directed the field operations. As a boy playing on a vacant lot next to his home, he dug a fort, unearthing some bones. He put them away among his boyhood col­ lection of odds and ends and forgot them. Pouring over maps of the new freeway route, he spotted the area in which Jie played as a boy and recalled the bones. With little difficulty he located the "vacant lot next door," which proved to be a rich archaeological site. Roek show to be held at Pomona fair grounds Every southland rockhound— and thousands of just "plain people" who like to see fascinating gem and mineral displays —will head for the Los Angeles County Fair grounds in Pomona May 28 through 31 to see "Gem Trails of the West," largest rock- hound show ever held in this area. The event, actually the 26th annual convention and show of the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies, is open to the public. Attendance of more than 25,000 is expected. Every facet of rock collecting, gemcraft and lapidary work will be displayed in the special exhibits, competitive and non-competitive classes, and in the equipment dealers' section. Educational talks and lectures relaxing entertainment and organ recitals will be daily events. "Rock swapping," always popular with rockhounds and laymen, will occupy a large area near the three huge buildings housing the exhibits. Free parking on the fair 's White Avenue parking lot is available for visitors and exhibitors. A nominal admission charge will be made for non- Federation members and the public. SELL IT TOMORROW With low - cost Classified AdS County tax delinquency up sharply SAN BERNARDINO (CNS) Tax delinquencies are sharply higher tlian they were a year ago, G. Leon Gregory, county tax collector, reported Monday to tlie Board of Supervisors. He said the amount of delinquency on April 10 was $4,232,271, compared with $3,226,651 a year earlier, an increase of 51,005,609. The rate of delinquency is 4.717 per cent. It was 3.977 per cent last year. Actual collections are far above a year ago, Gregory reported. Up to April 10, they totaled $85,490,021, compared with $77,908,343, a gain of $7,581,678. Higher assessments account for the boost. Gregory also reported to the Board on his program for auctioning off tax delinquent property, saying that the sale or redemption of 3,614 parcels of land had raised $437,604. He said four auctions were held. No more are planned during the current fiscal period, he declared. County relief payments hit $23 million S.4N BERNARDINO (CNS) — Belief payments in the countj' totaled just over $23,000,000 in the nine months ended May 31. compared with about $20,000,000 in the same period last year, according to a report submitted Monday to the Board of Supervisors by Roscoe Lyda, welfare director. This covers all categories of aid, and Lyda declared that only the general relief program is larger than originally forecast due to greater liberalization in the Aid to Totally Disabled. For the nine months, this came $176,068, or 83 per cent of the year's budget figure. Last year $284431 was distributed in this program for the nine months. More county money is being spent than anticipated in t h e community work and training programs, but this is being offset "by judicious use of county monies" for other children's programs, Lyda reported. • • • 3rdl BIG WEEK Of • 46 OUNa CAN • SAVE 12* • 303 cm • SAVE 17* • YOUR CHOICE WHOLE KERNEL OR CREAM STYLE • 303 CANS • SAVE 15* APPLESAUCE GRANADA ROSE TOWEL SETS HIPHHBETH BONUS COUPON FREE!
