Gxeology Field Camp Located In Wyoming

Wyoming Location Ideal
For Training in All
arieties Of Terrain

Illustrative of the modern trend in
educational methods toward giving
practical experience in actual field
viork is Camp Davis, the University
rummer surveying and geology camp
rear Jackson, Wyo.
Camp Davis is ideally situated both
for a surveying camp and for its
recently acquired function as a base
camp for geology field work. For sur-
veyors, the camp site provides a
large variety of landscape condi-
tions, varying from the flat valley
floor on which the camp is situated
to the towering peaks and steep
slopes of the Grand Teton Range.
The prospective surveyor is here giv-
en an opportunity to gain an intimate
working knowledge of any possible
type of terrain that he may meet in
his future work. Two courses of in-
struction and field practice in sur-
veying are offered this summer.
Variety Of Geologic Features
The region surrounding Camp
Davis also offers a great variety of
geologic features. Many types of strata
and structural formations are within
a short distance from the camp. A
mountain glacier can be studied in the
Teton Range, and the great slide of
the Gros Ventre River took place a
short distance from the camp.
Instruction in Geology will also be
offered on the faculty conducted tour
from Ann Arbor to Camp Davis. A
study of the general physiography and
structural geology of the route trav-
elled will be made. In addition, the
group will stop at various geologic
features en route. Among those in-
eluded are the Driftess Area of Wis-
consin, the Bad Lands of North Da-
kota, and the Black Hills uplift. Both
elementary and individual advanced
courses will be offered.
Camp Started In 1874
Michigan pioneered in the estab-
lishment and maintenance of a camp
for summer field work. Camp Davis
was organized in 1874 under the
supervision of the late Prof. J. B.
Davis. The camp occupied several sites
in Michigan until 1929 when the Uni-
versity purchased a track of land in
Jackson's Hole, Wyo. The camp site
is in the valley of the Hoback River,
75 miles south of Yellowstone Na-
tional Park, to which a trip is planned
during the summer.
The camp itself is built for com-
fort and convenience. The water sup-
ply is piped by gravity from a near-
by mountain stream, and both hot
and cold showers are available. The
buildings of the camp are construct-
ed of sheet iron with concrete floors,
and the clear mountain air and cool
nights make the camp a comfortable
place to spend the:summer.
Thirty-six students, 20 surveyors
and 16 geologists will take courses
there this summer, Prof. H. Bouchard
of the department of Geology and
Surveying, director of Camp Davis
announced yesterday.
War Threat Forces
Tour Cancellations
Unsettled conditions in Europe and
the Orient have necessitated the
abandonment of plans for tours of
England and Japan, Prof. Louis A.
Hopkins, director of the Summer
Session, has announced. ;
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the Eng-
lish department had planned to con-
duct a group to the literary land-c
marks of England, Professor Hop-
kins explained, but the constant
threat of war on the continent has
made the plan impracticable. Prof.c
Robert B. Hall of the geography de-g
partment was to conduct the tour ofi
In former years, tours to foreign
countries have proved very success-K
ful, Professor Hopkins observed. In
1936 Prof. Elmer D. Mitchell of thee
physical education department led ac
group of his students on a tour whicht
had as its chief aim the study ofI
physical education techniques ina
Eureopean countries. The group vis-
ited the Olympics in Berlin.I

Biolooy Station
Op>ens In June
Field Courses Are Offfrid
In Z oology, Botany
The University Biological Station
on the shores of Douglas Lake in Che-
boygan County will be open again
this year for students interested in
advanced zoloogical and botanical
field work.
The location of the camp is ideal
for a large variety of field studies.
The University - owned Bogardus
Tract occupies an area of more than
3,900 acres between Douglas and Burt
Lakes, 13 miles southwest of Cheboy-
The Biological Station lies in the
so-called transition zone between the
evergreen coniferous forests of the
north and the hardwood deciduous
forests of the south. In addition,
both virgin and second growth timber
are found in the area, thus affording
an excellent opportunity to study a
variety of vegetation conditions.
For zoologists, the region surround-
ing the station is well stocked with
both aquatic and land bird and ani-
mal life. Numerous bogs and swamps

The summer forestry camp, Camp
Filibert Roth, will again be held in'
Iron County, northern Michigan, ac-
cording to Prof. Robert Craig, direc-
tor of the camp. About 70 students,
most of whom are already registered
will attend.
Camp Filibert Roth, as a division of
the forestry school, will offer 10 hours
of credit in forestry courses, with the
primary function of the camp being
to give students of forestry an actual
taste of professional work. The
day for the students begins at 6:15
a.m. and lectures, field work and
study occupy them until 5 p.m. The
full week of hard work gives students
time from Saturday noon until Mon-
day morning for their own pastimes.
The shores of-beautiful Golden Lake
border the camp and it is admirably
suited for swimming. Surrounding

most of the camp is the Ottawa Na-
tional Forest, which provides oppor-
tunity for studying the operations of
the U.S. Forestry Service and also the
work of the Michigan Departmentof
Conservation. Also within a few
miles of the camp are private lumber
interests which enable the students to
see firsthand sawmill and logging op-
