Rainy weather doesn't seem to
be an ideal condition for a scien-
tist's best field work, but Prof.
Alexander H. Smith thrives on it.
Prof. Smith, potanist in the
University Herbarium, has been
collecting mushrooms in the west-

during which time he has irri-
tated many a tourist by continu-

vanced classes have a lot to be
happy about as the result of a re-
cent pay hike.
An eleven-cent salary increase
has gone into effect, which means

vious 79-cent daily wage. Pay-

time how many you will find."

who has the task of collecting
and classifying the fleshy fungi
of the western part of the coun-

fairly regularly since, except dur-
ing the war.
