"The Ark," museums publication.
Russell is spending the winter in
the museums working on a thesis
on mammals with Dr. Lee R. Dice,
curator of mammals.
Declaring that "these millions
constitute a fair cross section of
the American population," Russell
expressed the view that the Ameri-
can people are growing continuous-
ly more engaged in outdoor work,
and are becoming educated in the
field of natural life.
"Visitors enter the great natural
reserves in an inquiring mood and,
because they are grouped as well as
perceptive -herded, so to speak -
provide a most wonderful field in
which to teach an appreciation of
natural objects, animate and inani-
mate, so well exemplified in the
parks," Russell continued.
The United States natural park
service education program entails
teaching from the objects them-
selves, for the most part in the
living out-of-doors. The parks per-
sonnel is composed of men qualified
by experience to interpret natural
phenomena, who present their in-
terpretations in a form to be di-
ges ted by the average visitor.
The park museums are being pro-
vided in the major parks by the
American association of museums.

University Loan Committee will meet Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 1:30
