MR. EDGAR B. HOWARD continued last summer the search for early man in southwestern United States which he had been carrying on during the past several years. This year his efforts to unravel the problem connected with the people who apparently lived in the region of present day New Mexico during early post-glacial times were sponsored jointly by the University Museum, the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, and the Carnegie Institution of Washington. Although the work during the past summer was largely of a geological nature, part of the time was spent in an unfinished excavation of a cave near the Guadalupe Mountains from which several infant cradle-burials were removed.
