Field Station
ill Provide
Facilities At Douglas Lake
Include 4,000 Acres
Of Forests, Flora
A pleasant summer on the shores
of Douglas Lake plus an excellent op-
portunity to do field study in ad-
vanced zoology and botany - such is
the program offered by the Univer-
sity Biological Station for students
interested in advanced biology work.
The Station, opening in June, is lo-
cated on the University-owned Bo-
garus tract, which ocupies an area
of more than 3,900 acres between
Burt and Douglas Lakes in Cheboy-
gan County. The region is particularly
suited as a biological station, for it
is a transition region between the
coniferous forests of the north and
the deciduous hardwood forests of
the south, and presents types of veg-
etation characteristic to both regions.
Swamps and bogs in various stages
of development ocupy much of the
lowland. The flora of these areas is
northern and includes numerous or-
chids, the insect catching plants and
dwarf mistletoe.
Seventy miles to the south, near
Grayling, is located a tract of virgin
pine, known as the Hartwick Pines,
which give the rare- opportunity of
studying such a forest in its original
Ecologist's Field Day
The ecologist and taxonomist will
find a field day in Wilderness Park,
bordering Cecil and Big Stone bays
to the west of Mackinaw City. Here,
in addition to large dunes and bogs,
are second-growth coniferous and
hardwood forests which have for more
than 60 years escaped the ravages
of fire, thus allowing ground con-
ditions to return to normal.
Dunes are also located at Stur-
geon Bay and Little Traverse Bay,
while those at Sleping Bear, 100 miles
to the south, are the firest in Amer-
Ica for study.
The large number of aquatic and
terrestrial birds, as well as the ani-
mals, make the place a paradise for
cne zoologist. The numerous bogs ano
swamps provide a natural habitat
for a large number of species. The
fauna of the Great Lakes Region is
represented by the 68 species of fish
found in the lakes 9nd streams. An
opportunity to study breeding behav-
ior and embryology is offered by cer-
tain species of fish which spawn dur-

ing July.
For the ornithologist who wishes to
get up at five and listen to bird calls
and study the feathered denizens,
over 170 species of birds have been
identified in the region near the sta-
The camp itself covers about 30
acres of level ground and adjoining
hillsides near Douglas Lake. The
buildings of the station are arranged
in three areas: the general campus

motorboats, launches, rowboats,
trucks, seines and nets. The bird col-
lection of the campus has over-700
specimens, and a large stock of ani-
mal skins, skeletons and specimens
are included in the museum.
But midst all this study and re-
search, recreation is not forgotten,
for a large field is provided for base-
ball, and the lake offers excellent
opportunities for boating, swimming
and diving. The spacious clubhouse
provides adequate facilities for less
vigorous summer recreations.

it will be given to advanced students
who will spend the summer at the
National Speech Correction Camp,

The work of an institution like the
University Museum cannot be limited
to a few months during. the. regular
Fall and Spring terms, but is con-
tinued into the Summer months.
Within the various divisions, many
important research problems are de-
veloped and field surveys of winter
investigations are carried on. The dif-
ferent branches of the museum em-
brace piatural history, anatomy, arch-
aeology, ethnology, material medica,
industrial arts, chemistry, fine arts,
and history. These exhibitions are
arranged for the convenience of stu-
dents and visitors and are easily ac-
cessible for those interested.
The main portion of these collec-
tions are housed in the University
Museum which was completed in
1928. Included in this building are the
divisions of zoology, botany, paleon-
tology, and anthropology. Facilities
are provided for research work of
graduate students.
Hooper Plans Trip
This summer, Dr. Emmet T. Hoop-
er,, Assistant Curator of Mammals,
is planning a trip to Virginia and
West Virginia to study the distribu-
tion and ethnologic relationships of
the mammals of that area. This re-
search work will occupy the larger
portion of his time.
Dr. William H. Burt, Instructor in
Zoology, and Curator of Mammals
in the Museum of Zoology, will travel
in Michigan collecting information
on the local mammal fauna as ad-
ditional material for his handbook
on Michigan mammals which he is
now preparing.
The Division of Great Lakes of the
Museum of Anthropology, with Emer-'


son F. Greenman as Assistant Cura-
tor, expects to'return -to the North
end - of -the Georgian -Bay, Ontario,
to continue excavation on sites which
have undergone some examination in
previous seasons. Each of these three
sites is connected with elevated
beaches of Lake Huron, making it
possible to date cultural materials
recovered. The period of human oc-
cupation represented is suggested by
geological means to lie between 1100
and 10,000 years ago. The work is
done by students enrolled for two
months during which the members
of the expedition live in tents.
Manitoulian Area
This work has been carried on in
the Manitoulian district since the
summer of 1938 in coperation with
the National Museum of Canada at
Ottawa. The materials that are re-
covered are brought here for research
purposes and eventually data will be
published on the completed work. Re-
sults of the expeditions consists of
field notes, maps, photographs and
specimens, chiefly implements of
flints and quartize.
Most of the staff;of the Museum
of Anthropology will remain here
continuing their research work. Dr.
James B. Griffin, Assistant Curator
of Archaeology and Research Asso-
ciate in the Museum of Anthropology
will study the Indian pottery collect-
ed in Missouri, Arkansas, Dr. Fred-
erick R. Matson, Assistant Curator of
Ceramics, Museum of Anthropology,
will continue chemical research work
on pottery of northeast and eastern
United States to determine how pot-
tery was manufactured, whether the
wares were made locally or imported
and to investigate fully the history of
potters art in those regions.

The University Museum located at the intersection of Washtenaw
Avenue and E. University Avenue houses a number of varied divisions
which include natural history, anatomy, archaeology, ethnology, materia
medica, industrial arts, chemistry, fine arts and history.

make frequent visits to various wood-
using industries in that vicinity.
Attendance at Camp Filibert Roth
is compulsory for all forestry stu-
dents. Sophomores planning to en-

urged to take the camp work this
summer, Prof. Robert Craig, director
of the camp, announced.
Sanitary conditions are maintained

Arch, School Offers
Varied Curriculum
To make it easier for students in
the College of Archtiecture and De-
sign to make up deficiencies or to gain
credits, and to make the school
available to others for elective credit,
the Summer? Session courses offered
by the school will be open to all
interested and qualified.
It will be necessary, however, for
transfers from other schools to pre-
sent grade transcripts and samples
of work to insure proper classifica-
Instruction will be given in begin-
ning architectural graphics; all un-
dergraduate courses and one gradu-
ate program in architectural de-
sign; landscape architecture; out-
door drawing and painting and ap-
plied design.

be held in the Architecture Building
at the end of the Summer Session.

Center For Campus Activity

Pharmacy College
Open For Session
No requirements are exacted for
admission to courses in the College
of Pharmacy which will be offered
during the Summer Session.
Courses have been designed to meet
the needs of two groups: students
who wish to shorten the time needed
to complete the programs leading to
the degree in pharmacy and those
wishing to specialize in pharmaceu-
tical chemistry.
Records will be kept of work com-
pleted, to be applied toward a degree
if the student at a subsequent time
becomes a candidate for one.
Inquiries concerning courses avail-
able for the Summer Session will be
answered by the secretary of the Col-
lege of Pharmacy.


Men students enrolled here for the Summer Session will have offered
to them every service of the two and a half million dollar Michigan
Union. For years the center of campus activity for Michigan men, the
union has its own swimming pool, Pendleton Library, tap rooms, dining
rooms, barber shop, lounges and rooms for private meetings as well as
