HE glacier that visited Wisconsin did not advance with one great
even front.  It moved very slowly where it met a high obstruc-
tion and its progress was less retarded where it found an un-
obstructed lowland. The front of the ice sheet was a series
of great protruding lobes with reentrants between. One pro-
digious lobe plowed along the bed of Lake Michigan. Another,
         --- a smaller one, pushed down the next great depression to the
west, the northern part of which is now occupied by the waters of Green Bay
and Lake Winnebago. The third immense lobe moved southwestward through the
trough of Lake Superior and on into Minnesota.

Editor's Note - Have you
noticed the kettle-like
formations that extend
from Lake Geneva for near-
ly 100 miles north? This
is the Kettle Moraine, one
of Wisconsin's odd geologi-
cal formations. In this
third number of the "Know
Wisconsin Better" series,
the formation of this sec-
tion is described. Next
week's issue of The_
will tell more about the
activities that went on in
these parts before man came
on the scene.
