of the University on good record who
are within four hours of graduation

the Biological Station at Douglas
Lake, nine miles from Pellston, and
Camp Filibert Roth of the School of
Forestry and Conservation, near Mu-
nising. The Biological Station is for
field work in the departments of
botany and zoology, and will form
an important part of the work of
those departments, supplemented by
courses here. The Forestry Camp will

to Professor Hopkins, will be the work
done by Institutes organized by co-
operation of various departments of
the University, many of them sup-
ported by outside foundations. The
Linguistic Institute, for the study of
languages from their historical and
functional point of view, will hold
its second session here. International

won recognition for its work in past
sessions, will again be held.

lic Administration will be held here,
while the work in Social Admiinstra-
tion will be done in Detroit.
Special courses will be given in the
fields of the Renaissance studies, in
biological chemistry, and in engineer-
ing mechanics. Special lecturers and
programs of study will make up the
main feature of these programs, of-
fering opportunities which are not
available during the regular year.

Biological Station To Hold
30th Annual Term At
Douglas Lake, June 27
Field courses in the Summor Ses-
sion curricula of the zoology and bot-
any departments will be again offered
this year in the Biological Station
at Douglas Lake, in northern Midhi-
gan, it was announced yesterday.
This will be the 30th annual ses-
sion of the Biological Station since
its founding in 1909. Courses taught
there are mainly those in which ad-
vanced field work is required or which
are of advanced or specialized nature.
Half-Day Trips
Work in each course usually oc-
cupies an entire day, consisting of a
half-day field trip supplemented by
reading and lectures.I
The session at the Station will last
from June 27 to Aug 30, with regis-
trationubeing done there, following
application to the Department of
Zoology or to the Summer Sessiont
administration. Students majoring in
biology, graduate students, and spec-E
ial investigators are those for whom
it is especially prepared. All living
facilities, consisting of 93 cabins, mess
hall, laboratories, and clubhouse, are
provided !at the Station.
Visiting Professors
Prof. George R. LaRue is director
of the Station. Visiting professors will
be Prof. Frank C. Gates of Kansas
State College; Prof. George E. Nich-
ols of Yale University; Prof.' Herbert
B. Hungerford of the University of
Kansas; Prof., William W. Cort
of John Hopkins University; Prof.
Charles W. Creaser of Wayne Univer-
sity; Prof. Lyell J. Thomas of the
University of Illinois; and Dr. Olin
S. 'Pettingill of Carleton College..

Last year the station was equipped
with 93 cabins housing three persons
apiece, for living quarters, nine lab-
orator'y buildings, a mess hall, aquar-
iums, insectaries, clubhouses and rec-
reation fields. Each of the cabins
had concrete floors, stoves, beds and
mattresses, screens, and electric light-
ing. The kitchen is equipped with
electric range and stove facilities,
electric refrigerators, and an electric
dishwasher, mixer, and potato-parer.
The situation of the camp is termed
excellent by Professor George R. La-
Rue, director of the Station, even
though it was not selected as the
result of any survey through the
state. It is in a region that is close
to a great number of different types
of natural habitats and conditions for
study. Part of the Bogardus Tract
lies in the great Northern hardwood
region and part lies in the Northern
coniferous region. Thus many tree
species are to be found at the camp
and short excursions into neighbor-
ing regions brings contact with others.
Each of several small lakes around the
camp has its own individual charac-
teristics, so that there is a large va-
riety of natural aquatic habitat avail-
able for the students.
Students interested in plant taxo-
nomy will find that there are 1,000
species of plants from over 100 fam-
ilies, especially ferns, bryophites,
and algae, near the camp, while there
are over 50 species of mammals and
17 of birds in the region. Study con-
ditions of the invertebrate animals
is also good, because of the number
of aquatic habitats and because of the
number of insects and terrestrial an-
imals there. The Station also is near
to other regions of ecological and geo-
graphic interest, such as the Sleep-
ing Bear sand dunes, and Wilderness
Park.

Study Course
hi Linguistics
To Be Offered
(Continued from Page I)
versity faculty, will have charge of
a new course, Practical Semanatics.
This is to be a study of how the
meanings of words change, using the
laboratory material of the Early Mod-
ern English Dictionary which is being
prepared here. Prof. Knott is the
former general editor of Webster's
New International Dictionary.
The first summer meeting of the
Linguistic Society of America will be
held here during the summer. It is to
be a two-day meeting of scholars from
every part of the United States.
The Institute is being sponsored by
the Linguistis Society of America, a
nation-wide organization of language
scholars for the purpose of promot-
ing the study of linguistics in all their
aspects. Twenty-two courses will be
offered by the Institute here this
summer, ranging from such subjects
as American Engish and Field Meth-
ods in Linguistics, to Hittite and Old
Persian.
