Drove towards Defiance [[insert]](from Harlin)[[/insert]] with Ed White.

 At NW. 1/4 1/4 of [[insert]]cut[[/insert]] 8-79-38, along road is a cut in loess.
[[left margin note]] [[underlined]] Cut 6 [[/underlined]] [[/left margin note]] 
This exposure faces S., and is 5-7 ft. deep, and only lower 2 or 3 ft. are clear, - rest overgrown.  The lower part shows distinct gray loess, iron tubules more abundant; saw no fossils.  The upper part (greater part) shows a yellow loess, rather heavy, with bluish streaks.  No nodules or fossils.
Took sample of gray loess from near base of slope, and of yellow loess 1/2 way up, and in each case about 7 ft. below top of bank.

[[underlined]] Cut 7 [[/underlined]] On N. slope, at corner, another similar section shows gray loess
