EXHIBIT IS OPEN DAILY the
For the first time since the dedi- roox
cation of the University Museum's
building at Washtenaw anid North t
University avenues, main exhibi-
tion room on the second floor of
the building containing paleonto-\
logy exhibits, is open to the public.
Starting this morning at eight
o'clock, and every day from eight
to five an yone may visit this ex-
hibition room, although the entir.,
exhibit is not yet comnpleted.
hExpeditions Bring Material
Most of the material which is on
exhibition on the s wcond floor is
the result of a nuinber of expedi-
tions undertaken by the paleonto-
logy museum under the direct-on
o9 Dr. Ermine C. Case during the
last five or six years. The spedi-
mens recovered are from theup-
per Triassic beds of Western
Texas. The staff has been pe-,
culiarly fortunate in recovering !
the remains of a number of great
Amphibians and Reptiles of this
particular geological region.
The first specimen of impor-
tance that was brought back was
a fairly complete skeleton of an
entirely unknown species of rep-
tile, which has been named by the
paleontology department, Desma-C
tosuchus. Another exhibit of rare
interest is the skull of a giant
Amphibian which is in the .most
perfect condition of any in the
world. The speciman hastbeen
named after Mr. W. H. Buettner,,
the preparateur of the specimens.
It is known as Buettneria.
Find Notable Specimen
In 1927 an expedition from the
paleontology museum to Howard
couny, Texas, discovered the skull
of 'a Phytosaur which is regarded
as the largest and most perfect
speciman of its kind ever found.
This unique exhibit weighs over
450 pounds and the skull is over
four feet long. This remarkable
specimen is on exhibition in a
case with two other very perfect
skulls of Phytosaurs. The exhibi-
tion contains a nearly complete
specimen of a smaller Dinosaur,
and a few bones and teeth of
some of the larger forms.
Professor Case when interview-4
ed about the exhibition said, "We

78 o 000 Chesterfield cigarettes are now sailing
South-Polewards with the Byrd Antarc-
tic Expedition. We are officially informed that the selection
of Chesterfield resulted from the individually expressed
preferences of a majority of the expedition's members.
When it is recalled that these are-in superlative sense
- picked men ... selected not only for bravery, ability
and experience, but also by searching tests of physila1
fitness...we may be forgiven for our considerable pride
in their vote. And somethingof this pride, we believe,
will be shared by all Chesterfield smokers.
It is another of the many proofs piling up that the
surest way to earn popularity is to deserve it!
