KEEP OFF THE GRAS$!
Dr. F. G. Gustf son Predicts
Desolate Future for Campus
By MARCIA WELLMAN
A desolate future for the University
of Michigan campus was forecast to-
day by Dr. Felix G. Gustafson of the
botany department, if students con-
tinued heedlessly to make shortcuts
across the grass.
"In a few years, the campus
would resemble a desert in the sum-
mer, dry and dusty, and in the
rainy seasons, it would be swampy,
if all of us do not cooperate to pre-
serve the grass we have left," Dr.
"If more people realized the injury
they do by walking on the grass at
this time of year, they would be more
careful," he continued.
Vital Region Destroyed
"During the winter and early
spring, the part of the plant from
which new grass develops is at the
surface of the soil," Dr. Gustafson
explained. "By walking on the

we break up the structure of the soil,
making it non-productive."
In former years, Dr. Gustafson
said, the University was able to re-
seed the campus each spring, but
during the war emergency, the man-
power is no longer available, and
the seeds are difficult to obtain.
"There is no need for our campus
to become a desert," he added. "The
campus belongs to all of us, and we
need only to be thoughtful and take
pride in it if we wish to make it
as beautiful as it is capable of being."
"Community Education for Toler-
ance" will be the topic of tomorrow's
