Graduate Outing Club Meets Today To Elect Officers
SHADES OF H. G. WELLS:
Insect Killers Bear Ingenious Devices
Members of the Graduate Out-
ing Club will meet at 2:15 p.m.
today at the northwest corner of
the Rackham Building prior to
embarking on their usual Sunday
A short business meeting to
elect new officers will precede
the outdoor portion of the day's
CLUB PRESIDENT Hugh Gun-
del invited all "hardy grad stu-
dents with red blood coursing
through their veins and a love
for the beauties of nature-in-
cluding the female ones-" to par-
ticipate in today's activity.
lie emphasized that coeds are
especially welcome to join the
club, mournfully pointing out
that at present there is "a de-
plorable ratio of ten men to
every woman in the Club."
Gundel explained that club ac-
tivities may include anything
from chasing hot dogs to hedge-
hopping or swimming, depending
upon the wishes of the member-
TWO WEEKS AGO for example,
members of the Club went on a
canoe trip up the Huron River.
The crew of one boat decided
to determine how much they
could move about within the
canoe without tipping it over.
"The water was very cold," ac-
cording to Gundel, one of the
boat's occupants. The remaining
two members of the underwater
craft were conspicuous by their
absence at last Sunday's swimming
"We haven't given up all hope
for them yet-they are both long-
winded," Gundel commented.

As deadly as any of man's de-
vices for destroying insects are
nature's own killers.
The most famed of these insect
eaters is the Venus Fly Trap.
* * *
FACULTY MEMBERS will see
this plant in the Hall of Biological
Principles' new displays from 3
to 5 p.m. today.
Among the new exhibits is a
group of models of insect-eat-
ing plants, including the Venus
Fly 'Trap, with a model of a
dead fly trapped within the
Paddle shaped leaves grow from
the stem of this plant, and are
hinged together like a clam shell.
The hapless fly attracted to the
plant, because of its odor and
coloring, rests for a moment be-
tween the opened leaves.
* * *
SPIKE-LIKE hairs grow from
the center of the leaves, and when
the fly inadvertantly touches one,
the leaves pull together and the
fly is slowly crushed to death.
The plant releases digestive
juices, and when it completes
its meal, the remains of the fly
Growing in swamp areas of
Michigan and other states is an-
other vicious insect killer - the
pitcher plant. Instead of crushing
its prey to death, the insect is
drowned. . . *
HORN-LIKE leaves grow around
the stem of the plant, and collect
rain water. Insects attracted to
the plant fall into the horn leaves.
In case the insect is not immed-
iately drowned, nature has pro-
vided the plant with down-point-
ed hairs which keep the insect
from climbing out of the trap.
It is believed the reason these
plants trap and eat animals is
to replace a deficiency of nitro-
gen in the swampy soil where
these plants usually grow.
With all his superior faculties
man traps, his animal enemies
much the same as there carniver-
ous plants. Fly-paper is not much
of an improvement over the sticky
droplets of the sundew.
Comic books and pulp maga-
zines to the contrary, there are no
authenticated accounts of man-
