Ermine C. Case
A description of the first fossil of
a bird recovered in tertiary deposits
in North America was given by Dr.
E. C. Case of the geology department
in a paper titled "Skull of a fossil
bird from the Bad Lands of South
Dakota." The paper was prepared
with the co-operation of Alexander
The skull indicated that it was
that of a larger bird similar to the
present red-tailed hawk but larger.
The discovery carries the genus
Buteo farther back in the scale of
geologic time than was formerly
The preservation of the skull was
remarkable, said Prof. Case, because
of the delicacy of the tissues and the
lack of preservable material. Impres-
sions of the palate were visible, so
clear was the preservation.
Dr. Douglas Johnson. of Columbia
University, said by .many geologists
to be one of the foremost physiog-
raphers of the present day, advanced
a comparatively recent theory as to
the flatness of the tops of various
mountain ranges in yesterday after-
Examination of small scale erosion
forms in the bad lands of the Da-
kotas revealed the extensive develop-
ment of miniature rock fans coalesc-
ing to forms rock pediments or
planes. Study of these forms leads
to the belief that these planes on
large scale may be formed by normal
stream erosion involving much lat-
eral planation. The generally accept-
ed theories hitherto have been that
these large planes were due to weath-
ering back of mountain fronts, or to
sheet flood erosion.
Several slides showed pictures of
the miniature forms as well as the
J.G.P. Tryouts Required
To Attend Dance Classes
Compulsory attendance at danc-
ing classes, meeting ,at 4 o'clock on
Tuesdays in Barbour Gymnasium is
necessary for women wishing to try
out for chorus work in the Junior
Girls' play, according to Frances
Manchester, '34, general chairman of
the Junior Girls' Play central com-
Miss Manchester stated that no
woman would be accepted for future
chorus tryouts who had not atteided
these classes. Up to date, over 70
women have turned out for practice
in limbering and tap dancing which

OLIVES RICH IN VITAMIN A
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15. - (/P) -
Vitamin A, which helps to protect
the body against several bacterial in-
fections, has been found plentiful in
both green and ripe olives by the
Department of Agriculture.
Seven medium-sized olives will
supply about as much vitamin A as
an eighth of a cup of whole milk or
as a serving of the bleached lettuce
leaves that usually appear in a salad,
the department says.

This year a formal decision debate

a Detroit audience, when Michigan
will meet what Coach McBurney
terms as "one of the cleverest and
most versatile teams on the whole
schedule including the Conference
appearances." Selection of the Mich-

City College will be announced Nov.
Other teams included on the Mich-

Northwestern here, Nov. 8, include,

Jury Holds Inquests
On Fishy Fatalities;
Foul Play Suspected
Even a poor fish can't die these
days without the risk of some "cor-
oner's jury" looking into the matter.
And what's more, these scientific
gentlemen who form the jury can
tell without much trouble whether
the death was caused by disease, hu-
man agencies, or whether by some
predator. In the latter case, they can
even determine whether it was a bird,
snake, mammal, turtle, or lamprey
that did the dirty work.
J. Clark Salyer, graduate student
working on a Fisheries Institute fel-
lowship, under the direction of Dr.
Carl L. Hubbs, has recently complet-
ed a study of the causes of trout
deaths, results of which are publish-
ed in a department report. This re-
port covers the untimely demises of
153 fish, 119 of which were trout, all
of them either caught on head
screens of rearing stations or found
dead in and along trout streams.
To bird predators were traced 33
per cent of the deaths, and since each
bird makes its characteristic mark
in killing and attempting to swallow
its prey, the bird group can be di-
vided as follows: kingfisher, 14 per
cent; great blue heron, 9 per cent;
and bittern, 3 per cent.

To Use New Policy
For the first time in the recent
history of debating at the University,
it has been decided to hold a, decision
debate with another Michigan pol-
lege. In the past, the jeopardy of an
early meeting with a non-Conference
school in a pre-season debate was
thought too great to permit the
scheduling of any debate where the
