Earth science expedition discovers ancient artifacts .

What might Po s sib 1 y be among the oldest man-made artifacts ever to be found in California were located by students from the earth sciences department during a field trip. March 13-16. Arrowheads made ofobsedian(ashiny. black stone used to make jewelry and tools by Indians) were located in an area known to be inhabited by Indians as long as 9,000 years ago according to Richard Noble, earth science instructor. He and Joseph Willis,.. also of the earth sciences departmen~ led an expedition of 20 geology students on a 1305 mile. four

day field trip which took the group over a three state area. The group's first stop was at Mountain Pass, California. Located at Mountain ~ass is a "unique quarry". The quarry 1s the only spot on earth where certain rare earth3 can be found in any abundance. These earths are used in the manufacture of color television sets. The rare earths, once identified as granite , are now mined extensively. The second day of the trip found the four station wagons at Hu!:_ricane Cliffs, utah. A sample of oottery_, found by a student,

Sixweek study inMexico City offered by San ilego State Interested students can register by April 15 at San Diego State College for six weeks' study at the University of the Americas in Mexico City. Classes in Mesoamerican culture, Latin American history. and Mexican crafts are among those available in anthropology. Otller studies include art, business administration, geology and economics. Classes in Spanish. music , history and the performing arts will also be open. All classes will be taught in English for six units of college credit. Instruction begins June 17 and concludes July 26. Students will live in homes of selected Mexican families. Special side trips have been planned to Oaxaca Cuernavaca, Taxco1 the Pyramids of Teotihucan and the Basilica of Guadalupe. Approximate total cost of the program is $455. Mode of travel is optional, but round-trip air transportation is recommended. Dr. John H. Wilding, associate pro- .

fessor of education at San Diego State, is director of the special Mexican program,

Women are needed to help host the annual AWS Senior Women's Day. The yearly event, scheduled for April 25 , hosts women from the area high schools for the afternoon. Beginning about 3 p.m., the program will start with tours of the campus. "We hope to have girls from the Girls' Service Club act as guides," said Mrs. Marjorie Wallace, AWS advisor. "Once the high school girls reach a certain area, we will provide an AWS member to show them around. ~some of the areas we hope to cover will be the various science labs which will be in session at the time. ~A WS girls will show the seniors through the Art Department, artgallery, ceramics, p hot o-j ou rna 1 ism and any other department that especially interest the seniors.

Unveils spring film series

'The New Cinema' set for tonight This semester's film series will unveil a new aspect of the motion picture industry with tonight's onset of "The New Cinema''

A collection of short films, "The New Cinema" will be shown tonight through Sunday at 7:15 p.m. in P-32. The fourth and final pre_:;entation will be

Students worth $250 during census week If you are a student at Palomar College, you're worth $250. You're especially valuable during the week of April 1-5. That is the time the final census of attendance will be taken. The State pays Palomar approximately $250 per student on an overall daily attendance and on the average ofthe four times census week occurs during a school year. ~The actual cost is a little over $750. per year and the approximate $250allotted by the state is only about 1/ 4 of the cost." according to Dr. John Schettler, ASB financial advisor.

and 'King David' practices perhaps will be in session. We want the girls to see things in operation," Dean Wallace commented. The feature event for the afternoon will be a panel of women who will give brief talks and answer any questions that the senior women !laj' have. All of the panelists will be women who are now attending or have attended Palomar," Mrs. Wallace said. "Both women who have left Palomar and are attending a four year college and women who are now in the professional field will be included. "We will attempt to aim the program at girls who wish to attend college for two years onl~ gaining a certificate; girls who plan to go the whole four years; and girls who plan to attend for awhile and later enter a career or marriage."

One of the short films featured in "The New Cinema" tonight in P-32 is "Corrida Interdite." The films is a

study of the movement of a matador in a bullfight. Admission is free and open to the public.

Tuesday in ES-19 at 7:15p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Ranging from two to 30 minutes in length, the films are directed by such leading new men in the field as Clive Donner,~ Jean-Luc Godard, Richard Lester, Roman Polanski and Francois Traffaut. The series has had sell-out showings at the Lincoln Center in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Art.

employed methods used by Indians as long as ~000 years ago, said Noble. In addition to fragments of potte~y1 the group found chips of arrowheads and petrified wood. At Zion National Park, utah, the group found sandstone deposits indicating that the now mountainous parks may have once been a dune-filled desert. Ancient mud cracks long ago turned to stone , were also found. Many fossils, once thought perhaps to be a shark's tooth, were unearthed along with samples of obsedian. The four day expedition returned via Death Valley, where the group camped near the lowest spot in North America, located 280 feet below sea leveL "Death Valley is a tremendous thing geologically ." said Noble. "It's very complex. tts topography yields rocks from the oldest known in the earth, maybe three billion years old, to the youngest, to recent deposits. For instance, we walked out onto the salt flats at Badwater and looked at the salt c r y s t a I s and the m i n e r a 1 s recently deposited there. And off in the distance you could see mountains made of possibly three billion year old rocks. It is an incredible area." Weather for most of the trip was a major factor. Storms threatened most of the time, but in Death Valley, the weather was "summer-like." During the return trip from Death Valley to P a 1om a r, the group drove through the Owens River Valle\}' and the Sierra Nevada mountains. A storm was coming over the mountains, accordingto Noble creating a "dramatic effect." During a final stop, the group found nbornbs" volcanic debris ejected from a volcano in solid form and scattered "all over the countryside." Samples of the bombs displayed for photographers were about the size of a football, and shaped like a bullet. It is here the students found the arrowheads dating back more than 91000 years. Asked if the eartn sciences department had any further field trips planned, Noble said, "We'd love to go on a lot of them; it's really the only way to learn geology. I thought, in spite of the limitation of time, it was very fruitful. Yes, we have plans possibly closer in our own Mojave desert and Borrego desert area. where we collect fossils and rocks."


One 10 minute film "Renaissance." presents inanimate objects which take on a life of their own. A study of the movement of a matador in a bullfight is the essence of "Corrida Interdite." This particular movie, which runs 10 minutes. required tens of thousands of feet of film be shot to produce its slow motion effect. Some films are in color, others in !:)lack and white. One four minute movie contains a sing 1 e spoken word. Each film contains what is considered to be a totally new dimension _in cinema, a dimension which will probably continur. through the next decade. The films are provided by the adult education and community services of Palomar.

Ron Simecka and John Robirds were elected Circle K vice-president and sergeant -at-arms,, respectively, at the club's weekly Wednesday meeting.

Playing for tonight's inter-campus dance-concert are "The Seeds.", The event will mark the third inter-campus

dance with MiraCosta and the first on the· Oceanside campus. The dance begins at 8 p.m.

Today is the last day to see the Day Faculty Art exhibit in the Boehm Gallery. The mass media show features the work of Palomar faculty members. The gallery closes at 4 p.m. Opening at 11 a.m .. Thursday, April4 , with a reception, will be the drawing and printmaking p u r c h a s e a ward exhibit. Attracting works from across the nation, the exhibit will show winners of the $750 award money allotted by the spring 1967 council.

Senior citizen drop-out, AI Fleek, learning how to think once agazn •

"I'm a senior citizen drop-out," said AI Fleek, a 63 years young full time student at Palomar, Veteran of 28 years' Marine Corps service, Fleek is attending school on the GI Bill. Fleek is an enthusiastic booster of both Palomar College and the younger generation. "I tried to join the senior citizen groups, but they bored me stiff! After 28 years in a young man's outfit, the Marine Corps, I was used to being around y"o ungpeople. If you ask me, those retirement communities are graveyards. Fleek's return to school came about because of a chance remark made one day last summer by Morse Olmstead, President of the Governing Board at Palomar. Olmstead suggested. "Why don't you give college a try?" During his years in the Marines, Fleek traveled all over the world. but spent most of his time in the Philippines. China, Siam - and India. It's not surprising that his major is history of the Far East, and he is working toward a degree. "My family was all in favor of my going back to My wife, Bertie, wrote proschool.

fessionally and taught at Oceanside high school. My son. Dan. attended Palomar' and is now a child psychologist. His wife Janet. is Dean of \\'omen at Texas Chris-

tian University, so I'm surrounded by degrees." - Tieek admits it was tough going at first, ' 'learning to think again, but I never quit anything in my life. Now, I'm enjoying every minute of it. It would do the older generation a lot of good to attend school or just to visit school for awhile and really get acquainted with the younger generation they throw rocks at, ".M said. With his many interests, it's difficult to imagine Fleek as ever being bored. Besides hunting, fishing, golf, skin diving and making custom guns for friends, Fleek likes to tinker with hot rods. He used to tune up racing cars and still attends the races. His current project involves putting an Olds-12 engine into a pick up which will give the truck a 325 horsepower engine. While in the service Fleek was a sprinter and has won three gold medals for track. He also played football in high schooL When he decided to attend Palomar, Fleek's wife put one restricti~n on him. "This time I won't let you play football," she said.
