A Problem to Face.
Yesterday's session of the Academy
of Science was opened by a paper on
"A State Natural History Survey," pre-
pared by Prof. Spaulding and read by

plants and animals is a bold fact. Are
we producing nothing good enough for
which 'the public money ought to be
expended? In Michigan we have a
specific problem facing us, that of pro-

such praltical problems will not hinder
theoreticol work in the laboratory.
There ire three things which we
aught to have to aid the work, vii.:
There ought to iie an extensive collec-
tion of Epecial books easily available.
(2) The state should publish anything
that would add to our knowledge of our
plants and animals. (3) We should
constantly aim at spesalization and co-
