Just compare the ruffled, layered shape of such con- temporary earthen crea- tions in bar ditches as they are drying up. Much of this material is elevat- ed from several inches be- low the ground. It may well be very unlike the mucky silt on which it is laid. These mounds dry in the sun. Now just suppose that on that fateful occa- sion 250 million years ago a horrendous flood, earth- quake or glacial action in- nundated these crawdad wads and surrounded them with such foreign sludge that they could not unite with same but in- stead were hardened as separate entities by heat, earthen pressure and chemical actions--only to be unearthed by a bunch of Okies at this late date Some of us who don't know from nuthin' to those with degrees and pedigrees and admired by all. I wouldn be so insis- tent about my own homegrown theory had I not found and recovered a fossilized mole hole in a clay bank in Iowa. There was the small round di- ameter of the burrow run along with a couple of wide areas apparently used for nesting or storing food. This burrow had filled with a substance wholly different from the black surrounding soil. The soil was still mellow but the mole run was thoroughly petrified. I still have several feet of that strange find here at home. Apparently a llme- like substance was abun- dant in the surrounding soil and through many centuries this slowly seeped into the aban- doned wet times and dried during dry times until the void was completely filled. One spot in Kansas is littered with finger sized fossilized holes with some of the solid material still under- ground and some exposed by erosion. So Dr. Black, I don't have the answer to how the mole hole got plaster- casted like that. I merely have the hardened '~eoid." And finally, if you and your class ever want to reconstruct a pre-historic mole hole 111 furnish the material and you furnish the labor. Maybe O.B.U. will furnish the coffee. -s-Bud England -O.

This is, in fact an outright gift from the hard pressed Ameri- can taxpayers to the wealthiest people on Earth (the multi-national Bankers). The money is to be loaned to foreign coun- tries to help them make payments on their debts to the Multi-national Banks. Thus, the banks are protected, not only against the loss of their investments, but also against the possibility of failure to realize their intended profits. The Bankers have der- ived huge profits from their international lend- ing spree, while deliberat~ ly pushing domestic interest rates far beyond reason, and wrecking the economy of the United States. It was their own imprudent and immoral behavior that created the present situation. The decision to give an extra thirty billion dollars to the United Nations Financial Organizations will be followed by a re- quest for fifty billion this year. The United States Treasury doesn't even have the money to do this. It is being borrowed at astronomical interest rates from the same bankers. Therefore, the Bankers who created the problem will have doubled their profits at your expense and mine. It is unfair, immoral and un- constitutional to take money from the citizenry to guarantee the profita- bility of International Banking operations. If our government must provide the money to keep other nations from de- faulting on their debt payments, it is only fit- ting that the entire amount be raised by a special tax on the interest earned by Banks from their International loans. Any other means of financing this operation will create an economic catastrophe that will make the Great Depres- sion look like a picnic. Sincerely yours, James E.
