PAGE ' KGHT BU'THFA'ILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS \ Group Seeks Oil; Finds Old Fossils ' Expedition Returns '; From Peru with Many Prehistoric Shells ' BY PAUL F. KIXIS | Unltal Trtf* Science Writer > NEW YORK, Oct. 13. (UP) _ A ; live-man expedition was return- td from South America where It scaled mountains three miles high to collect spemlmens of prehistoric i tt*. shells and evidence that Peru » h«s great untapped oil fields. \ The expedition, headed by Dr. ; Norman D. Newell, professor of ' geology at Columbia University and i curator ol historical ecology at the American Museum of Natural His' 'tors 1 , brought 1 back 1.000 pounds of ' fossilised shells and oil-bearing foclts. Dr. Newell said that from the strata of rock atop the Andes, one at th« highest mountain ranges In the world, further proof is added \ Lh»t the Andes were thrust upward br internal disturbances in the earth more than 300,000,000 years tfo. Before formation of the mountains, he explained, the area Wfis ' the bottom of a shallow sea that ' probably continued Jo what is now North America. The same type ma• tint fossils have been found in Oklahoma nnd Texas, where oil fields have bccu tapped for m»ny years. • Dr. Ncu'cll said that native Petu- iritns aided in the expedition and helped to carry down the steep mountains 100-pound blocks containing the specimens. Many forms of fossils previously, unknown to science were found. Dr. Newell explained that the fo: •ill of tiny marine animals who lived In the Carboniferous and Per'. mum Age will provide geologists' and paleontologists with "excellent material for research and will nd:l Immeasurably lo man's knowledge of these prehistoric periods." ( The mountain-scaling was decid- , ed on, Dr. Newell said, because lo collect the rocks and fossils they must be found exposed. There was * very little vegetation atop the i. mountains. He said it was safe lo *~ assume that the same kind of spec* Imens would be found In the Jim"• 'gleland of the Amazon Valley. Dr. Newell said his collection of L1..S rocles Included no uranium, (hi --'' metal from which the atomic bomb Is made.

He bowed them ceremoniously into the big maroon-colored limousine, and the chauffeur at the wheel sent trie ew.down the drive with a flourish. The night was soft with the magic o£ spring; Hie air fragrant with growing, blossoming things; We ' dork jungle, mysterious, haunted. The car swung away from the road that ran the length of the island, and which was, up to now, the only road that Happj hari nown.

"You aren't finding island life oo dull and boring?" Happy laughed that to scorn. "I've never had so much fim in ly life, or enjoyed anything so luch." "I'm glad. Happy. I're worried ibout you this week because- I've been too busy to keep you mnsed," he confessed. "But now hat everything is running smoothly I' able to take some time, 'ft this next week. There arc so many thmgs I want you to see. 1 * Afterwards, when the dancing began, George danced the first dance with Happy nnd then siir- endertd her, with flattering rc- uctatice, to some of the olhrr foung men while he danced with Madchime, then with Joyce.

I haven't exactly tried to make a secret of it, have I?" he said very quietly. Happy's heart gave n little lurch ami began to beat very fast. She fell, for a moment, a breath of i>anic; she had a strange desire to tfet out of the car and run awnv from him — and could have laughed alovul at such an absurd ideal ' 'You do know that I am fond of you, Happy?" he repeated. Well, you've — you've been — tcrribl; nice," she stammered childishly, and the hand he still held made a little frightened fluttering movement, but was held more tightly. "Happy" — he looked closely at her as the big cnr reached the end of the roatl beyond which the la- £oon curled toward the ocean — "Happy, you ridiculous infant, scarcity of .the National Ion of Manufacturers." He urged an .immediate specie' session of Congress To restore price controls on food and basic mnte- al.s at the -source, and called for n Stnmedlale labor-management conference "to explore the ocls of getting the economy off t k .v merry-KO-rounu on which wages chase prices but never catch up."
