Hubbs Finds Some Hybrid
Fish Can Reproduce by
Laboratory investigation of hybrid
fish w h i c h reproduce parthenoge-
netically, the first occurance of this
phenomena e v e r recorded among
fish, is being carried on in the a-
quarium of the University Museums'
Division of Fishes, under the supervi-
sion of Dr. Carl L. Hubbs, curator, it
has ben announced.
Parthenogenesis, in its pure form,
is reproduction of the young by the
female entirely independent of the
male. In the investigations pursued
by Dr. Hubbs, he has found that the
male influence is confined only to
initiating the development, that the
germ plasn of the young is not ef-
fected by the male, and hence its sex
is always female and its inherent
qualities identical to the female.
'rhe fish studied are hybrids of
species found in a northern group
near Mexico and the gulf, and a
southern group found in Yucatan
and the Panama region.
Experimentation has been going
on since May.

their plaints to those of at least 30
classes of the past, and the subject
of their sorrow- will again be that
much-maligned substance known as
Ann Arbor water.
Despite all opinions to the con-
trary, the ghastly liquid is mostly

cent of its content is foreign matter.
and even Andrew Volstead wouldn't
object to that.
The Huron river is just as inno-
cent as it looks. It hasn't any more
to do with that dishwater taste than
the Atlantic ocean. Three carefully
disguised wells, one on South State
street, one on the west side, and an-
other near Barton dam, are the
