SKELETONS OF STONE AGE MEN ARE DUG UP IN CONNECTICUT
Prehistoric Inhabitants of the Nutmeg Sate Were Flat Heads of Great Strength and Huge Teeth
     Bridgeport, Conn., Aug 15 - Two complete skeletons, believed to have belonged to inhabitants of the earth in the Stone Age, are said to have been unearthed by a team of archaeologists, headed by Prof. Warren King Mooreheadm near the Housatonic River at Laurel Beach.
  The professor and his assistances have been digging in this section for some time and claim discovery of a number of indications that the section was once inhabited by a forgotten race.
   Both skeletons appear to be well preserved.  The bones are rough, denoting great strength, the skulls are flat and both possess a perfect set of teeth of unusual size.
   Prof. Moorehead said it was his belief the bodies were buried in salt water several thousand years ago, which accounts fir their preservation.  He also expressed hope that he and his assistants would soon locate a burial ground of an ancient race.
