Confers with Danih Government
About Proposed Exploration of
Northern Land
Provided that sufficient funds can
be raised, Prof. W. H.H obbs, head of
the geology department, expects to
lead what may be a University expe-
dition to Greenland next summer.
Professor Hobbs, who returned this
week from Europe where he has been
advising the Danish government rela-
tive to the proposed exploration of
Greenland, stated yesterday that he
is considering conducting an Ameri-
can expedition to that same land.
The primary object of Professor
Hobbs' European trip this summer
was to plan the scientific phase of
the expedition which will be lead by
Dr. Lauge Koch, famous Danish ex-
plorer, who lectured here last spring.
The expedition will start next sum-
mer, according to the plans recently
completed, with the east coast of
Greenland as the basis of the explora-
tion. A shipload of eskims is now
establishing a settlement on the
northern island, at Scorsby Sound,
under the direction of the Danish
stations and doing other work pre-
paratory to the expedition which will
start in July,
Other Nations Aid
Professor Hobbs believes that a
great desirability for an American ex-
pedition, to operate from the west
coast of Greenland in conjunction
with' the Danish exploration next
summer, is apparent. For this reason
he is planning the project with a view
to taking several members of the
University geology department with
him. The cooperation of several
European governments in connection
with the meteorological work of the
proposed expedition was assurred
Professor Hobbs this summer.
"The trip will all depend on
whether or not funds can be raised to
defray expenses," said Professor
Hobbs. "I expect to ask several
members of the geology department
to accompany me if my plans ma-
terialize, and it is possible that the
project may take the aspect of a
University expedition."
During the ten (lays that Professor
Hobbs spent in conference with Dr.
Koch at Copenhagen this summer,
he delivered a public address under
the auspices of the Danish Geological
society which was attended by a num-
ber of prominent Greenland explorers
and which was widely published in
newspapers throughout Denmark.
His subject was "The Place of Green-
land in the Earth's Atmospheric Cir-
Academy Hears Paper
Professor Hobbs Was in Germany
for ten days and in England for the
same length of time, earlier in the
summer, and spent six weeks in Paris
engaged in writing, research work,
and visiting various government
aerological plants. August 17 he pre-
sented a paper before the Academy of
Science at Paris, and on August 28
gave two papers before the British
Association for Advancement of Sci-
ence at its annual meeting in South-
ampton. One of these has already
appeared in the British scientific
journal, Nature.
After spending two days each in
Norway and Swede and visiting the
Gothenburg, Professor Hobbs sailed
from Oslo for America, arriving in

New York September 23.
Dr. Melville H. hatch of James Mil-
likin university, Decatur, Ill., is teach-
ing 'lasses in invertebrate zoologyj
and entomology here this year, filling
the position of Dr. Paul S. Welch who
is absent on leave, studying institu-
tVons of zoology in Europe.
Dr. Carl D. La Rue of the zoology
department has returned from a year's
leave at Johns Hopkins university.
While there he made a special study,
