Discover Skeletons of 14 Prehistoric Indians

Remains of Giant Race Are Found Near Santa Monica Beach


LOS ANGELES, July 8.-Fourteen skeletons of giant Indians, supposed to have roved this section centuries ago, have just been dug from the sands of the beach on the Malibu ranch just north of Santa Monica. The smallest skeleton indicates a stature of seven feet, while several of the Indians must have been at least eight feet tall.

The discovery was made by three Santa Monica men camping at the mouth of Malibu canyon.

The skulls, teeth, and bones are in an excellent state of preservation. Many relics of an extinct race have been found in the same locality, but no skeletons of such size ever before have been unearthed.
