CIraft Will be Used to Carry Supplies
And Passengers.
Campers in the Biological camp on
Douglas Lake will have a 30 foot gaso-
'line launch at their disposal this sum-
mer if the present plan of Professor
Reighard, who is in charge of the
camp, is carried out. A special grant
for the purchase of the boat was in-
cluded in the last budget of the Re-
gents, and Prof.I Reighard has put the
matter in the hands of the Purchasing
Dpartment.
Part of the work of the biological
camp is to go out onto Douglas Lake
in row boats on daily investigation ex-
peditions, and in case of a storm it
is hard for boats to get back to the
camp. The launch is needed to help
pick up the scattered flotilla, and will
expedite transportation of supplies
from Topinabee across the lake.
If the launch is purchased some-
where along the shores of the Great
Lakes a couple of students will prob-
ably be employed to run the boat up to
Cheboygan and thence by the "Inland
Route" to Douglas Lake.
