ment of Natural Science building will
be moved to the new location. Also to
be installed will be the equipment
used in wood preservation. Experi-
meats in creosoting and preserving
railroad ties, fence posts, and poles
will be undertaken here.
"It is our idea to test out the known
processes of wood testing on the dif-
ferent species and to endeavor to
k develop new methods which might be
applicable to the utilization of tim-
ber," Professor Craig said. "An ex-
perimental dry kiln will be erected to
study dry kiln, methods. The drying
of woods is more important than is
ordinary thought. Mechanical strains
which are apt to develop in woods
after cutting must be eased or the

wood will split and crack. These
strains would be prevented by proper
drying artifically than allowing the
lumber to season out in the open."
A library for the School of Forestry
and Conservation 'will be installed in
the portion of the Natural Science
building to be vacated by the ro-
moval of the laboratories to the hos-
lpital heating plant.
"The new location has the advan-
tage of having railroad facilities
which will be of aid in shipping in
heavy material," Professor Craig
stated. "This will greatly aid us in
