Qeveopments of Forestry in Michigan
-Wesley Bradfield Addresses En-
gineering Society.
At the meeting of the Engineering
Society last night Wesley Bradfield,
a senior in the Forestry Department,
delivered a most interesting lecture
on the "Developments of Forestry in
Bradfield, in company with Profes-
sor Roth and several students went
on a surveying expedition last sum-
sner which was under the control of
the Burean of Forestry and in co-op-
eration with the State of Michigan.
Bradfield's lecture which was illus-
trated with lantern slides was doubly
interesting from the fact that his lec-
bre was in part a sort of diary of the
vork accomuplished by the surveying
expedition. Professor Roth had
charge of the camp while Bradfield
was in charge of one of the srveying
parties ani during Professor Roth's
absoence hadl charge of the amp.
In his lecture Bradfield stated that
sixty-eight per cent. of the actual
land area of the state is unimproved;
about twenty-five per cent. of the
land area is waste land and good for
nothing except for forestry. There
is no need of the land being in the
condition it now is and if the foresters
were given all of the state lands
which are now under the supervision
of the State Land Commission the
land would be materially improved.
That part of the land which is good
for agriculture should be determined
by the State Land Commissioners
and the rest should become the State
Forest Reservation. During the last
five years the State of Michigan has
paid out $413,000 for the care of these
lands for which it has received no
return. Under forestry management
these lands should become a source
of revenue to the State and foster
private milling interests.
The actual planting of Norway pine
will begin this coming season and
will be under the personal su-pervision
of Professor Roth. the State Forest
Warden. In concluding Bradfild stat-
ed thtt what the Foresters needed
the most at present was proer legis-
lation for controlling the destructive
forest fires.
Professor M. E. Cooley M'de Dean of
Engineering - Depertment-Profes-
sorJ. B. Davis Vice Dean.
At a meeting Friday the Board of
Regents put in effect what has been
generally anticipated and yesterday
afternoon at the session of the Board,
Professor M. E. Cooley was made
dean of the engineering department
at a salary of $3,500.
Professor J. B. Davis was made vice
dean of the same department at a sal-
ary of $2,750.
It is safe to say that no pnoint-
ments ever made by the Board of Re-
gents will be so pleasing to the stu-
dent body in general, as these two, as
both men are popular with their stu-
A matter of great interest to all
fraternities, college clubs, organiza-
tions, and associations is to be dis-
cused Tuesday, January 19, at 7:30
p. m. at the Michigamua rooms over
the Oriental Billiard Parlors, entrance
on Liberty street. One representa-
tive of each organization is urged to
be present, as this will be a very im-
portant meeting for all concerned.
