Prof. Baxter Going To Alaska
To Seek Data On Forest Fungi

tion period, upon notifying the in-
structors of Friday classes.
Prof. Dow V. Baxter of the Schoolt
of Forestry and Conservation will
conduct his fourth expedition to
Alaska this summer, for the purpose
of gathering data on Alaskan forest
fungi, to be incorporated into a mon-
ograph he is preparing for publica-
This year Professor Baxter, ac-
companied by two University stu-
dent assistants, will work in the wes-
tern portion of the country as well as
on the Kenai peninsula. He plans to
go down Kenai Lake to Cooper's'
Landing, then by trail to the Russian
River country,band later in the field
season to the Mount McKinley re-
gion and to Koyukuk on the Yukon
River. The territory about the Rus-
sian River is largely unmapped, ac-'
cording to Professor Baxter, and the
collecting work there will supplement
that done at the time of his second
expedition two years ago.
Less Populous Than In 1898
Speaking of conditions in Alaska
in general, Professor Baxter said that
the country is less populous accord-
ing to census statistics than it was
'in 1898, and that in spite of the re-
sources there and the excellent fer-
tility of the soil in certain sections,
will probably remain largely unde-
veloped for some time to come. The
reason for this, Professor Baxter ex-
plained, is that Alaska occupies an
isolated position, distant from the
world's markets, and transportation
within much of the country itself is
poor. In this connection, he added,
the Matanuska colony project of the
Federal Government is probably
doomed to failure, the colonists being
unable to market their produce be-
cause of the long overseas distances.
Seattle, the nearest large port, is
seven days' voyage from Seward.
Alaska itself is unable to furnish the
colonists a market, because of its
sparse and widely scattered popula-
Forestry And Fishing Promising
Alaska's chief hope for the future,
according to Professor Baxter, lies in
her three leading industries, salmon
fishing, forestry, and mining. The
! fishing industry is already developed
to its fullest possible extent, however,
and probably cannot be further en-
larged. In forestry, there is a good
chance of developing the pulp wood
forests into paper manufacturing
districts, but a powerful objection is
found in the long distance from the
eastern seaboard, where most of the
paper is consumed, giving an ad-
vantage to the chief competitive dis-
tricts, Canada and the southern
states. As for mining, high costs
pi'event it from becoming a lucrative
industry, although many rich mines
are known. Placer gold mining is
crippled by the fact that the best!
streams are frozen over the greater
part of the year. Dredging and
quartz mining require large capital
to cover costs of operation.
The tourist business in southern
Alaska has developed in recent years
into a possible fourth major industry,
while big-game hunting has also be-
come very popular. These, however,
Professor Baxter pointed out, are not 1
real industries in that they cannot
play a great part in opening Alaskan1
resources and developing the country.
Boys To Attend
Two hundred and sixty boys, 60
of them from Ann Arbor, will at-
tend the University Camp this sum-
mer, it was announced yesterday by a
group of Ann Arbor people who
took part in the selection. The group
consisted of principals and teachers,
the Family Welfare Bureau, and the
Ann Arbor Boys Guidance Project
These boys will attend the camp
for a period of four weeks each, in-
stead of the two weeks which was
the custom formerly. In this period,
it is expected that more can be done
in developing the campers.
One hundred and ninety-five boys
were recommended from Ann Arbor
alone as worthy, but due to lack of
adequate funds only the minimum
number could be taken. The quota
would allow for 20 more boys to be
taken from Ann Arbor if $1,000 could
The other 200 boys will come from
Detroit, Hamtramck, and Wyandotte,
where they have been selected by
social agencies. They will also at-
tend the camp for a period of 4
weeks. 40 more could be handled
from these districts if the money
George Alder, camp director, said
that for the carp to run at full ca-
pacity this year, $2,500 additional
would be necessary.

Of Crime Lab
Here Is Seen
lRuthven Considers Phnis
Of Officers For Helping
A proposal to establish a crime dc-
tection laboratory in the University
will be taken up with various indi-
viduals who might be concerned,
President Alexander G. Ruthven said
The suggestion that a laboratory
be set up here came from the Mich-
igan Sheriff and Prosecutors Asso-
ciation, a group of whose members
met Monday with President Ruth-
ven. No definite plans were ad-
vanced, and officers of the associa-
tion were reported to have left the
development of a plan in the Presi-
How soon action would be taken
on the request could not yet be de-
termined, President Ruthven added.
General aspects of the proposal are
at present being considered.
The field of the laboratory would,
it was believed, include largely the
activities in which University fac-
ulty members have assisted law en-
forcement officers. Facilities for
pathological and toxicological inves-
tigations, ballistic measurements and
other scientific aids to crime detec-
tion would be the main features of
such a laboratory.
Establishment of a crime detection
llaboratory here would be the first
instance of such action by a univer-
sity, George Colyer, president of the
association, stated, although North-
western University already has a pri-
vately controlled laboratory.
