San Clemente – Immense Skeletons


[United Press Leased Wire]

San Clemente, Cal., May 21. – Immense skeletons unearthed in an Indian burial ground near this place are being viewed by hundreds of curious spectators today. Two of the enormous racks of bones are about seven feet long, while the others measure more than six and a half feet.

The skeletons were found at an unusual depth, under the burial ground of the Tamal Indians, the inhabitants of the section before the white invasion. It is thought probable that they belonged to one of the Aztec tribes. Trinkets and ornaments of unique pattern were found with the skeletons.
