Er-; Sckson of Reliance possesses a vast; collection of items taken from what is believed to have been a pre-his-i toric village site located in Lyman: county. I Included in the collection are arrowheads, stone knives, pieces of shell and bone, pottery, .smoking pipes, stone mall 1 ;, axes, etc. Collecting the ancient objects on his father's homestead since he was 10 years old, Erickson's collection, numbers about 6.000 different! Items. All of the collected piecco: were taken from an old pre-historic village site on the river bottom four miles west and 11 miles south of Reliance, at the mouth of the Bad Water Creek. According to Erickson, (ch Smithsonian Institute has expressed Interest in his collection because every Hem was found in one general area and because it is believed the collection Is pre-historlc — proba- My an ancient Aerikare tribe. Archeologists baj: this belief on the fact that various pieces of pottery, bone and shell can be traced to ancient cultures. "1 found my first arrowhead when I was herding cattle," said Erickson, "but I didn't do any excavating or take any real interest in the site until some of the items were exposed during dust storms. Later, while plowing, he would watch for the items to come to the surface and pick them up. The site now is covered with about 12 to 18 inches of gumbo. Under the gumbo, a little layer of sand exists and it is on this layer it is believed the people lived, he said. "A c t u a 11 y," he continued, "you can find similar collectors items all long the Missouri River. Bui, the unique thing about this collection in that they all were found in the one place, which measures about seven acres large. You'll find that many other places along the Missouri are now being investigated because of /the reclamation work."

Row Crops In SD Beginning To Fire, Wilt By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS An end to the hot, dry wesather that was ideal for the small grain harvest now almost completed would be welcomed by South Dako. ta farmers, whose row crops are beginning to fire and wilt. The State Crop -Reporting Service said Tuesday that most of the state is now short of topsoil moisture and that in many areas, corn and row crops are in danger of serious damage. Where moisture has been adequate, however, the high temperatures have produced rapid growth. Top-soil moisture is generally short in all but the area south of a line from Lake Andes to Belle Fourche. Subsoil moisture is in better supply, but is still short in much of the area east of the Missouri River. Exceptions are the Mobridge - Gettysburg - Onida, De- Game Board To Set Waterfowl Seasons Aug. 18 PIERRE Iff) — A 90-day season with four ducks per day, or 75 days and a daily bag limit of five. That probably will be the decision facing the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission when it meets here Aug. 18 to set the 1958 waterfowl seasons. A third option also will confront the commission: a split season comprising a total of 68 days of shooting. Howe v e r, since the commission has not favored a split season in past years it likely will narrow its choice to a 90-day or 75-day season. The 90-day proposal is an experimental season proposed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to all states in the central fly way. All proposed seasons are submitted to the states by the feder a 1 agency and state comrnis s i o n s choose their seasons within those recommendations. • The state commission also will choose between a 75-day continuous season or a 68-day split season on blue and snow geese, and between a 60-day continuous season or a 4-day split season on Canada and hite front geese. Here again the commission is likely to pick the continuous ieasons. Shooting hours will be the same is last year, from a half hour be- ore sunrise to sunset. As in previous years, nonresi- ents will be banned from hunting waterfowl in South Dakota. On, JfvL If Hawaii Becomes State, SD Will Still Be Center Of Nation By ROBERT A. HUNT WASHINGTON «1 — When Alaska is formally admitted to the un-on, a point on " t side of a butte near Castle Rock, S. D., will become the new geographic center of the United States. The switch will be from Lebanon, Kan. But what happens when, and if, longress approves Hawaii as the nation's 50th state? Backers of the territory are shooting for this ac,ion at the next session of Congress. The Coast and Geodetic Survey has told Sen. Francis Case (R-SD) the center at that time will still be in South Dakota, about nine miles to the southwest but still In Butte County. Of more immediate concern is the center upon admission of Alaska.

There will be 46 four - year graduates teaching at an average salary of $4,200; 52 two - year graduates ;eaching at an average of $2,900; and 50 one- year graduates teaching at an average of $2,300 to make the total of $459,000 in earning power for the 1958 graduates. Add to this the Southern alumni who have been assisted to new positions for next year by the Teacher Placement Bureau and the over-ali grand total for earning power would go well beyond the half million dollar mark which makes teacher placement a real big business. Over 90 per cent oi Southern's graduates are placed in South Dakota schools. Dean DeBoer states that the demand for newly trained Corn is more than nine-tenths tasseled for the state. Tassel- ing in the southeast is virtually complete with ears in the milk stage on about one - half the acreage. For the state, about one . fourth of the corn is in the milk stage with very little in the dough stage, which is behind last year when one-tenth was in dough and about one- half in the milk stage. The soybean crop is in good to excellent condition in most of th main producing eastern third of th state. About three - fifths of th soybean acreage has formed pod* Sorghum is over two --fifths neac ed out for the state. In the easten one - third of the state about one half of the sorghum is headed.

D." Sen. Case said that's located on he side of a butte at an elevatioi f 3,350 feet about three miles nor est of two top peak near Castle lock. There are no roads in the im mediate area of this location. The center, if Hawaii is admittet a the union, then would be shifted om this location to a spot closer o highway 85, a blacktop road. As such, it probably would be more adaptable as a tourist attraction with such things as visible markers. The state already claims th ;eographlc center of the North Am rican continents. A marker jus iorth of Pierre designates the ap jroxlmate location. A recommendation has bee: made by the Senate Public Work Committee that funds be mad available and used to take up th tudy of river damage to banks o he Missouri between Elk Point S.

There are an estimated 200 different designs on hand for the 49 • star flag. Perhaps the most popular at the moment is one which would ar- ange the stars in seven rows of even each. Others include an eagle made of tars, a circle with a star made of tars in the center and USA in tars. The present law doesn't spell out tow a new design of the flag shall be decided upon but Congress has nder consideration a bill which would leave it in the hands of the resident. Suit Involving Road At Oahe Dam Dismissed SIOUX FALLS i/f) — Suits brought by C. A. Landeen, Minneapolis, against two other Twin City firms lave been .dropped from U.S. District Court after the com plaints were dismissed. Judge George T. Mickelson signed the dismissal orders. Landeen Construction Co. had brought suit against Alexander Construction Co., Minneapolis, and St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Co., St. Paul. Landeen's firm had sought $9,862.15 plus interest and costs from Alexander for the c o n- struction of an access road at Oahe Reservoir, near Pierre. The defendant claimed it had suffered damages of $52,500 by subletting the contract to Landeen and filed a counter-claim of $42,673.85 plug interest and costs. Action was brought against the insurance concern ac a bonding company for Alexander Construction Co. John E. Burke represented Landeen while the defendants were represented by John B. Galloway. SIOUX FALLS tfi — South Dakota can expect to follow an excellent 1957 crop y,ar -1th an even better one this year, the State Crop Reporting Service has predicted. One of the most favorable Julys on record for maturing small grain has resulted in a bumper small grain crop. Higher than average production of most other crops is predicted. The largest yields on record were forecast for winter wheat, other spring wheat, durum wheat and rye. Sharply higher than average yields are indicated for corn, oats, barley and flax. Test weights and quality of harvested small grains are very good. Compared with last year, production is up on all wheat except durum (for which acre- ages were sh ,>ly reduced), and all other crops except corn, sorghum grains and hay. Compared with the 10-year average, production this year is up on all crops except durum wheat, barley and potatoes. Nationally, production this year is up on all crops except sorghum grain and hay. Corn production for South Dakota on August 1 was estimated at 120 million bushels, is 8 per cent below 1957 but 16 per cent above the 194756 average. The all - com yield was forecast at 31.0 bushels — 33 in 1957. Wheat production was reported at 50.6 million bushels on August 1, which is 26 per cent above a year Airman Defendant In Damage Action SIOUX FALLS Wl — A $16,110 suit has been filed in U.S. District Court by Robert H.

Dakotans Among Ministers Who Will Tour S.A. NASHVILLE, Tenn. Wl — Two South Dakotans will be among 32 United States Methodist ministers on an evangelistic tour to South America in September. South Dakotans who will make the trip to Bolivia, Chile and Peru are the Rev, Dwayne F. Knight, Brookings, and the Rev. Edward C. Antrim, Watertown. The mission is sponsored by the Methodist Board of Missions, New York and the Methodist Board of Evangelism, Nashville, There are reports that some 'unds might be made available to jomplete the study this year. If so, the money probably would come from a general investigations fund already appropriated. If the study were completed this year, the results would be available for Congress next year when hearings on a bill introduced by Sen. Case would be held. His bill would authorize construe tion of bank stabilization work between the two points. It's aimed at protecting farmers in the area from losi ^ land to erosion. The stu f would go into the economic feas.bility of the project. Case has received numerous letters from farmers who told of losing fertile land almost daily to the river. One farmer said he had seen about 150 acres lost in his vicinity since 1927. A South Dakota woman, Miss LuErna Jacobsen of Rapid City, has a design for a new 49 - star flag to be used when Alaska becomes a state. Sen. Case has submitted the de sign to the White House for consideration. Miss Jacobsen, a medical secretary, first came up with her arrangement of the 49 stars in a spiral circle back in 1946 when Alaskan statehood also was under consideration. She started with Betsy Ross' ori ginal idea of 13 stars in a circle and ust kept extending the circle in a piral arrangement. Stripes would >e unchanged.

Corn Suffering From Drouth In Springfield Area SPRINGFIELD—Corn is suffer ing in this area from the last week of hot weather and unless rain :omes soon it could cut in heavil on the final yield of the 195 corn crop. Rains here have not been large this summer with aver age showers running a half inc or less. Up to the last week th short rainfall had carried the crop rather well because the weathe was unseasonably cool. This picture has now changed an the shortage of moisture Is begin ning to tell. Corn is turning a slat color instead of the deep green has held all through the summer. The grain harvest is cpmplete and some 'fall plowing had bee started but due to the parche fields most farmers are waiting un til rains come. It would take a fu inch or even two inches to put U corn in shape for further growt at this stage. Dry weather is als showing up on the alfalfa and othe feed crops which show evidence short growth at ibis time. ago and 30 per cent above the ten- year average. An adequate supply >f soil moisture during the growing season along with below normal temperatures during July were the two main factors in producing the largest all wheat crop since 1951. Records yields of 32.0 bushels for winter wheat and 19.0 bushels for all sprii.j wheat was estimated. Production of winter wheat was placed at 15.6 million bushels, which is nearly 50 per cent larger than the production of 1957 and over two times larger than the 1947 - 56 average production. Durum wheat was forecast at 1.3 million bushels for 1958, which Ls one-third less than 1957 and nearly 50 per cent less than the ten-year average production. The lower durum wheat production was due to a sharp reduction in acreage this year. Other spring wheat production was placed at 33.7 million bushels — 22 per cent above last year and 16 per cent above tha ten - year average. Oat production was estimated at 113 million bushels for 1958, which is 23 per cent above 1957 and nearly one - fourth larger than the ten - year average. The oat yield was forecast at 36.0 bushels which Is the highest yield since 1951 when 37.0 bushels per acre was estimated. In 1945 the oat yield was record high at 41.0 bushels per acre. Bumper yields have been reported for local areas throughout the state. Barley production was estimated at 13:3. million bushels, which is 10 per cent above 1957 but 17 per cent below average. The barley yield was estimated at 26.0 bushels per acre which is the highest yield recorded since 1927. Acres for harvest are sharply lower than for the 10 - year average. Rye production was forecast at 5 million bushels, which is one- fourth more than the productions for 1957 and for the ten - year average. The rye yield was estimated at 23.0 bushels per acre, which is 2 bushels higher than the record- breaking yield of 21.0 bushels estimated for 1957. Flax production was estimated at 6.6 million busheL — 34 per cent above a year ago and 17 per cent above average. The estimated Miss Moline suffered a fractured ind dislocated ankle in addition to evere bruises and contusions. Shaon Moline, 17, riding with her sis- er, suffered face lacerations and evere shoulder bruises. George Jaeger, 59, has a fractured right arm and his wife, 57, has evere leg injuries. The Rev. Jaeger has face injuries but the Rev. Brunsman sustained only bruises and contusions. The airman, Barau, did not require medical attention. Investigating officers said two of he cars were almost demolished by the impact and indicated char- jes may be filed against one of the drivers involved. flax yield at 10.0 bushels per acre is the high- yield was .since 1948 when the bushels per acre.
