Wyoming Base
Will Be amp
For Surveyors
Summer Session Courses
Will Include Field Work;
JohnsonCalls Site Ideal
Camp Davis, 20 years older than
the University Summer Session of
which it is now a part, will again
serve as a field station for courses in
surveying this summer, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Prof. Clarence
T. Johnson of the College of Engi-
neering, director of the camp.
The camp, in the middle of the
Grand Teton mountains of western
Wyoming, is on the Hoback River, 19
miles north of Jackson, the nearest
town. It is on the main trail from
Rock Springs, Wyo., to Yellowstone
Park. This area, according to Pro-
fessor Johnson, is ideal for surveying,
for it is in open country, the ground
is solid, and there are many eleva-
tions for triangulation work.
Courses Awhich are to be offered
there will be in general surveying;
work, computing, and plotting, Pro-
fessor Johnson said. There will be
mainly field work, with parties led
by instructors. A general course in
surveying will also be given here on
the campus.
The camp is equipped with modern
set-up, Professor Johnson stated. It
has steel buildings with concrete
floors, a modern sanitary system ,and
mountain water available to all parts
of the camp. Sleeping facilities are
furnished by the University. The ses-
sion there will begin on June 28 and
will last for eight weeks. About 20
students will take part, with six fac-
ulty members attending.
This will be the 64th session of the
camp, Professor Johnson said. First
organized under Professor Davis in

Means Ann Arbor,
Believe It Or Not!
The Indians who first settled Ann
Arbor must have been good tongue
twisters because they first named
Ann Arbor "Kaw-goosh-Kaw-nick."
The Indians derived the name from
the sound of an old fashioned sash
mill built by the first settler, John
Allen in 1824.
Evidently the first inhabitants had
difficulty in pronouncing this conglo-
meration of words because they were
responsible. for changing the name.
Perhaps thL beauty of the name Ann
Arbor is marred by the knowledge
that it was named after the spot
where the wives of the first settlers
hung their Monday wash. The first
settlers of Ann Arbor, John Allen
and Walker Rumsey, had built a
beautiful arbor just south of Huron
Street for their wives. Their wives,
Ann Allen and Ann Rumsey, sewed in
this arbor and washed clothes in a
huge iron cauldron. The spot was
call Ann's Arbor by the two families.
When John Allen was called upon
to name the village, he selected the
name Ann Arbor honoring Ann Rum-
sey and his own wife. The name was
recorded on a plat and was sent to
Detroit in May, 1824. A copy of the
plat is now in the Court House in
Ann Arbor in the office of the Reg-
ister of Deeds.
The original documents bearing
these facts are on exhibition in the
William L. Clements Library of the
history of the development of Mich-
