Delaware Phone 319 Ralph Patton Makes Study of Jungle Archeology. Ralph Patton, 19 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Patton, former residents of Mason City, has returned to his home at Kalamazoo, Mich., after spending six interesting months in Yucatan,' province of Mexico. As he was intensely interested in archeology, young 'Patton spent most of hia time studying the ancient Mayan ruins and came back home with fascinating' tales about the jungles and loaded with souvenirs auch as examples of the beautiful Yucatan jewelry, tortoise shell, gold and silver handicraft Patton made his headquarters while in Yucatan at Turner lodge, boarding school and college operated under American auspices by Misa Eunice Blackburn in the city of frMerida, There he spent the first , month of his stay, devoting bis time exclusively to gaining a working knowledge of the Spanish. He learned the rudiments of the language quickly and was soon able to make himssif understood by the natives. Then he began to make his trips to the ancient ruins which dot the Yucatan landscape. In "Rain Jungle." He visited all the principal sites of ancient Mayan civilization in Yucatan Campeche, Spanish forts, made one long overland trip into the adjoining province of · Quintana Roo, and went by boat on a costal trading schooner to Tabasco. On that trip he penetrated far into the interior of what is known there as the "rain jungle," dense, tangled tropical forests where- primitive tribes, live and whose chief weapons of defense and livelihood are the bow and arrow. The best known sites where excavations and reconstruction have been carried to an advanced stage attracted some of Patton's attention, but his chief interest was in the distant and hardly accessible sites that have been visited only by scientists, and are well off the tourist's path. To reach these areas Patton went with Indian guides, on horseback, and often on foot with his camp equipment on pack mules, and for these trips careful preliminary preparations had to be made. Food- Was Scarce. Virtually all food used on the trips had to be taken'from the base at Merida, Patton said. While the natives in the small pueblos are friendly enough, their supply of food is rarely more than enough to supply themselves. As their trade is larger on a barter basis, they would not sell food if they did not have a surplus, which was seldom the case. Their chief sustenance is their tiny fields of maize, and if one crop fails, the family is faced with starvation. Water was plentiful in the pueblos, but care had to be exercised to provide a supply for the day. Pueblos or tiny settlements are numerous in the back country, and the day's marches were arranged so as to reach one of these centers by nightfall. There he and his guide would rent a vacant room in which to stretch their hammocks for the night--hammocks are used by all Yucatecans and "rent" a charcoal fire in a native home and there cook their meals. Slept in Hammock. Standard equipment always included first the hammock, second the mosquito net, and third the machete, or huge knife that is the inseparable friend of every native and traveler in the monte, or Yucatan back country. The hammock used there is a huge affair, not the confined American type, which permits a comfortable sleep. Living with natives he learned much of their character and customs. He was most impressed with their friendliness, but he admitted that some of the people had characteristics not quite so admirable. Patton found most Yucatecans extremely skillful in handicraft and semi-art work, with entire families engaged in various lines. The poorer classes work to keep alive, he found, but among the richer people anything but recreational activity is unpopular. The healthy young Kalamazoo- an was accompanied on some of his trips by youthful natives of the country. Their cleanliness, both in person and clothing, is striking he said. Handicraft Interesling. Many objects of interest were contained in the hampers of souvenirs Patton brought to Kalamazoo. The jewelry, particularly a number of tortoise shell bracelets and neck- KIWANIANS VISIT LOCAL FIRE AND POLICE STATIONS Co-Operation Between City County Officrs Pointed Out by Robertson. Members of the Kiwanis club Thursday noon visited the new city police station and then the fire station. After being served lunch in th garage of the police station. Chief Harold Wolfe welcomed the visitors and Sheriff J. M. Robertson, chair, man of the day's program commit tee, took charge. Sheriff Robertson stressed th fine co-operation between the police force and sheriff's force. He sketched a few highlights of interest to be seen in the jail, including an investigation of clews just completed by R. R. Oulman, fingerprint expert. The shooting gallery was also visited. At the fire station, explanation of various activities was given by Chief Dan Shire. Sheriff Robertson emphasized that citizens should know how the sheriff and police departments are operated. Guests at the meeting were Bob Stoyles and S. C. Woodard. TWO COUPLES GET LICENSES TO WED OSAGE--Licenses have been issued to Arthur A. Klapperich, 28, and Rose J.

Patton brought back several types of Tucatecan cigarets, ranging from the crude brown paper variety to brands rivaling popular American "tailor mades." Other examples of Yucatecan handicraft include colored baskets, pot.tery, utensils, native clothing, and many other mementos of the six-month stay. He has about 300 snapshots taken on his trips, and several reels of motion pictures. Patton expects to enter Western State Teachers college at Kalamazoo in the fall. He plans to continue his study of archeology. He would like to go back to Yucatan for another visit same day.

Today with nearly a million dollars of admitted assets, it stands between its members and the want and misery attending the farmer and his family when his crops are swept away ty the dreaded hailstorm. It offers its service to you and invites you to the protection of its fold. In cost it has saved its members in the last 43 years more than twelve millions of dollars, and it has paid its policyholders $12,450,374.91 in losses. A service of satisfaction and a record to be proud of. A rich farmer might pull through a destructive loss, even if it pinched him pretty hard, but no ordinary farmer would do so, and surely none can afford to try. It costs only about one-fiftieth part, or one bushel to the acre, to secure such protection. Before the first day of next August there will be one evening when you would gladly pay all it costs for the full season, for protection for only one night. Protect yourself now, and be ready when that night comes!
