en at a Saturday night rally of bus-

ization today of a state constitutional

Membersf Zoology Musetum
Have Publishfed Three Papers

Work performed by University
scientists in the researches being
conducted by the Smithsonian Insti-
tution of Washington, has recently
been put into printed form with the
publication of three papers by mem-
bers of the zoology museum of the
University Museum.
The publications are the result of
an expedition to British Honduras
and Guatemala in the winter and
spring of 1933. The authors of the
papers are Dr. Carl L. Hubbs, cur-
ator of fish of the zoology museum,,
Dr. Josselyn Van Tyne, curator of
birds; and Dr. L. C. Stuart; research
associate in the division of herpet-
ology of the Museums.
The work is part of a 20-year pro-
ject being carried on by the Smith-
sonian Institution. The University's
share in the research covers the field
of biology and is under the direc-
tion of F. M. Gaige, director of the
zoology museum. The papers cov-
er part of the third year of work
that the University has spent on the
Several new forms of fish are re-
ported on in Dr. Hubb's paper,
"Fresh-Water Fishes Collected in
British Honduras and Guatemala."
Included in the report is a collection
made by C. L. Lundell of the Uni-
versity Herbarium.
Dr. Stuart's paper, "A Contribution
to a Knowledge of the Herpetology
of a Portion of the Savanna Region
of Central Peten, Guatemala," is
the report of the comparative studies
Fire Des-troys
Whitmore Lake
Summer Hotel
Fire starting from undetermined
origin completely destroyed the old
Red Horse Tavern Sunday night at
Whitmore Lake.
William A. Zemke, Ann Arbor,
owner of the building, estimated his
loss at $20,000. No one was in the
building when the fire broke out.
Clarence (Mike) Fingerle operated
the taern throughout the summer
and closed for the season a week
ago. He estimated his loss in per-
sonal effects and furnishings at $3,-
The fire started in a coal shed at
the rear of the building and soon
spread rapidly to the frame struc-
ture, used as a beer tavern and
hotel for tourists. Firemen fought
the blaze for two hours.
Hundreds of persons were attracted
to the fire by the high flames and
glare. It started at 10 p.m. and by
midnight the building was completely

made during three trips to the high
bush areas to the north and south
of the Savannas. Mr. Lundell was
his companion on the expedition.
Their work was hampered by extreme
drought which caused extensive fires
to sweep through the Savannas and
high bush. Nevertheless, several
species new to science were found.
In his paper, "The Birds of North-
ern Peten, Guatemala," Dr. Van Tyne
includes 21 birds that for the first
time areadefinitely recorded from
Petin is the northernmost depart-
ment of Guatemala, extending from
Yucatan and Campeche on the north
to the mountains of Alta Vera Cruz
on the south. The northern portion
is low and often swampy and con-
tain5 hundreds of lakes, according to
University scientists.
Because it is largely covered with
water during the wet season, inves-
tigation must be confined to the dry
spring months.
Three papers covering the work of
the second expedition have already
been published. They are a report
on birds of the Peten district by Dr.
Van Tyne, a paper on fish found in
that district by Dr. Hubbs, and a re-
port on mammals by Dr. Adolph
Murie, formerly assistant curator of
mamology of the zoology museum.
A fifth party will be sent out this
winter as soon as the wet season
ends, Mr. Gaige said.

Exhibited Now
With Winners
A 'New American Exhibit'
Displays Prize Plans Of
Three . Of M. Students
Prominent among 30 drawings now
on display in the basement show-
cases of the architectural building
are three prize-winners submitted by
former University students.
The drawings were entries in a
$21,000 contest which attracted 2,040
entries from 9,000 architects.
John E. Dinwiddie, '25A, who won
second prize of $1,250 in the compe-
tition in Class B; Richard C. Hoyt,
'26Spec., who collaborated with two
others to win second prize in class
A and Leroy E. Kiefer, '26A, who won
$100 and honorable mention in Class
C, are the former students whose
drawings are in the display.
Hoyt's individual drawing, which
won honorable mention in Class B,
is also included.
The contest, which was conducted
by the General Electric Company, at-
tracted some of the most eminent
architects in the country because of
the large cash awards. A total of $2,-
800, more than 13% of the total, was
awarded to Michigan men. Verne H.
Sidman, '33A, won honorable men-
tion in class C. B. E. Laidaw, in at-
tendance at the University in 1923,
and Harry L. Smith, '30A, who won
honorable mention in class A, are the
other former students winning $100
in the contest. Their designs are
not on display.
The "New American" demonstra-
tion, as the exhibit is known, features
economical planning and design
combined with the most modern me-
chani:al and electrical equipment.
Small houses care the exclusive sub-
ject of the planners and the results
show a simplicity and compactness
of design heretofore unrealized by
the average layman, officials said.
