PEAT BOG SURVEY
Prof. Paul B. Sears, head of the
botany department at the Univer-
sity of Oklahoma, hasdbeen the
guest of the botany department
here, where he has been engaged
in research on the history of peat
He is applying a method, first ap-
plied in Europe, by which a study
is made of the vegetational succes-
sans, as glaciers succeeded, by
means of the microscopic study of
the characteristic pollen grains in
plants that are preserved in past
bogs. This microscopic analysis of
the peat from the top to the bottom
of the bog will give a history of
the changes in vegetation of the
history surrounding the bog.
This a a continuation of work
which Professor Sears began while
he was teaching at the Ohio State

KNOWS OF MANY FAITHS
Drawing his convictions on reli-
gion from a knowledge of various
Oriental faiths besildes Christianity.
Dr. Frederick B. Fisher, pastor of
the Methodist-Episcopal church of
Ann Arbor and former bishop of
India, will spear before the Open

approach to religion should be, at
4:15 o'clock Tuesday in the Natural
Dr. Fsher is definitely opposed to
proselyting a religion upon anyone,
either a liberal minded American
college student or an Oriental well
established in Mohamadanism or
any other eastern faith. Religion,
he continues, has something very
real to offer the individual just as
literature or science has, and it
should be up to the individual to
seek out the church as an agent to
helping him realize his spiritual
impulses just as he seeks out other
professions to help him realize oth-
In getting at a religion that suits
the modern college student the
speaker will mentilon the contribu-
tions that have been made by the
recent humanist movement and the
writers of modern literature that
have fostered the idea.
Besides his contacts with students
in India and China, Dr. Fisher has
made many recent contacts with
undergraduate life at Chicago uni-
versity, P2ttsburg university, and
the university of Boston.
