ADVANTAGES OF CAMP MILLS

BELkNAP
REGION TO BE EXPLORED
Kentucky Mountain Folk Claimed
To Be Especially
Interesting
Ralph L. Belknap of the geology
department, who will conduct
courses in geology and physiogra-
phy next summer at Camp Mills
Spring, geology and geography
summer camp, believes that the
camp work offers students an ex-
cellent opportunity to become ac-
quainted with scientific field meth-
ods,, and to gain real knowledge of
geology and geography by actual
observation.
Caves Will Be Studied
"We will make a comprehensive
study of the physiographic prov-
inces of that part of Kentucy," he
stated in an interview. "There
will be also opportunity for the
study of stream. action, especially
the formation of valley flats due
to the overflowing of the Cumber-
lsnd river each year. Mapping of
the area will also be done by the
students.
Belknap intends also to make an
extensive study of the limestone
caves in the region,, and to observe
the action of ground water in these
caves.
(After leaving camp we will take
a trip through the southern Ap-
palachians and the Atlantic coastal
plain. The geology in the region
of the camp is comparative simple.
We do not intend to make geolo-
gists or geographers of the stu-
dents, but to give them an oppor-
tunity to work in the best kind of
laboratory for this work, the out-'
of-doors. The cultural aspect of
education is stressed at the camp
as well as the scientific."
People Are Interesting
The people in the region of the
camp are very interesting, in Bel-
knap's opinion. "They are typi-
cal mountain folk, descendants,
undoubtedly, of some of the best
stock in America. They live a
primitive existence, farming wheat
and tobacco, and manufacturing
moonshine. They are extremely
proud and sensitive people, but are
very hospitable to the students.
The director of camp Mills
Springs is Prof. G. M. Ehlers of thej
geology department. Prof. P. E.
James of the geography depart-
ment, is in charge of the courses in
geography. Some forty-five stu-
dents are expected to enroll for
next summer

Gentlemen:
In the past twenty years I have been
a consistent smoker. I was always
anxious to smoke a pipe; but no mat-
ter how often I tried, I soon changed
my mind. I have tried all kinds of
pipe tobacco, but not once was I satis-
fied with the taste of any of them until
just recently I gave my pipe another
trial.
It was my luck to choose Edgeworth
this time, with the results that I an

. only hope that you will continue to
give that same mild, high-grade qual-
ity in the future.
I have started not less than sixteen
men to start or give Edgeworth a
trial, and they are still using that
same unequaled non-biting tobacco to
this day. I can recommend Edge-
worth tobacco to anybody who en-
joys a cool non-biting brand of good
tobacco; and as long as I enjoy same,
you can rest assured that I am going
to be a good ad., and many a pipe
smoker will be asked to give it. a fair
trial, and they themselves an act
