Melvin Qawes, a rancher in the Anderson area of Shasta - County, stumbled onto the teeth of the creature about two weeks ago while on a fishing trip. The giant blackish colored teeth were only partially exposed, but have since been uncovered and scientists say they probably pre-date any known modern animal. An anthropology instructor at Shasta College, Ed Clewett, said the find may be rare, especially for this area. Suggestions that the partially fossilized remains may be those of an early day camel or a huge horse have been ruled out. Clewett and another Shasta College instructor, Don Kirk, said the teeth indicate the be a st. was herbiverous, a browsing or grazing animal, but they are definitely prehistoric. The two instructors, with the aid of students and handbooks, have n a r r o w e d the ossibilitie ungulates, but say they are not qualified to make a positive identification. Kirk said they contacted the University YoysWiftlh NEW YORK (AP) - Hie earth, the stars and a bit of 1 the unknown are likely to found among the gaily wrapped presents excited youngsters .open on Christmas morning 1970.

For instance, Dirty Water, a board game by Urban Systems, Inc., demonstrates file evils of water pollution, the benefits of pollution control and things that can be done to dean up the situation. The object of the game is for each player to stock his stream with fish and wildlife and to leave industrial wastes back in his neighbors stream, which isnt exactly the approach conservationsits have inmind. Smog is another board game by Urban Systems which gives each player a town and the responsibility for smog control. How the various players clean up the air is the point of the game. Also likely to benefit from -file ecology awareness of 1970 are items such as International Learning Corp.s Mini Garden' growth kit which contains peat pellets, flower seeds, plant tags and instructions and Rapcoa Cactus Garden of California at Berkeley, but authorities refused to come up until they saw pictures and charts of the find.

Its teeth measure 2 Inches across and what is thought to be the hinges of its jawbones are 16 inches apart. Efforts at removing the teeth and bones have been very slow. Students with small picks and brushes work 'carefully, inches at a time, to free the parts from their sandstone trap. Upon questioning, Kirk admitted that he -believes-in Bigfoot, Californias giant ape-man legend, but the instructor has ruled out the possibility that the giant bones being worked on now are those of bigfoot. Because of the shape of the head, Kirk was able to say that it was not humanoid. Comparing the teeth to those in his handbook, Kirk pointed to pictures of ominous looking prehistoric monsters and said: Its probably along the lines of this. Clewett had been hopeful that experts from the University would take over the expedition. Referring to the approach of winter and the prox- -bones to a andHesperian Boulevard, 3 stream, he said: After all these years the bones are exposed and one good gullywash could wipe them out. - E!ellevainice reflect whats happening in the adult world.
