Paul Kardi Editor and Publisher
Old American Race
A new chapter has been revealed in American history. An
archaeological expedition sponsored by the Viking Fund of
New York and the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and
headed by Dr. Helmut de Terra, reports the discovery of an
unknown prehistoric people in Central America. These are
at least 10,000 years older than the Mayas whose remark-
able ruins are known to travelers in Mexico and Central
America. Some of the tools used by this unknown race go
back to the end of the ice age 15,000 years ago.
Though it is not known who these people were, at least it
appears that they came from Asia across Bering strait, mak-
ing their way down the east slope of the Rocky Mountains
to Central America. And whatever else they did, they prob-
ably witnessed, about 3,000 B. C., the greatest volcanic erup-
tion known. It spread over 100,000 square miles of the
North American continent, leaving a layer of ashes in Guate-
mala that was 400 feet thick. The destruction of the atomic
bomb would be mere child's play by comparison.
Now that the existence of this race is known, more details
will probably be unearthed. The records, like those relating
to the later Mayas, deserve study in American schools fully
as much as the lost civilizations of Babylonia and Egypt.
The public school system exists for the children of this
county. The public school system cannot function with need-
ed efficiency and discharge its obligation to our children if
there is any marked lowering of morale among teachers.
For some time many teachers have been very indignant at
the new system of teacher rating which was instituted, with-
out much advance warning or explanation, by the county
school superintendent. This rating process graded teachers
according to their supposed ability and was conducted along
lines which were considered by the aggrieved teachers as
both "unfair and unscientific." It is worth noting that no
negro teacher in all of Pinellas was rated excellent.
The teachers who honestly feel that they were not fairly
rated have not only voiced their protest in public but have
retained the legal services of our capable state senator.
The Independent does not feel qualified to state whether
the rating process was conducted along scientific lines or not
since we do not posea experts in the field of education. But
it does feel strongly that genuine feelings of grievance
among the ranks of Pinellas teachers will penalize the in-
nocent bystanders the pupils. We therefore urge the
county board to reconsider a step which, although no doubt
undertaken with good motives, has had an unfortunate re-
sult St. Petersburg Independent.

There are two sets of revolving, selfsharpening discs in each cutting

proved cutter, with 4 cutting units, would therefore cut 12 miles of
celery (rows) per hour. The machine in the picture has one cutting
