Redwoods'
Baby Granpa
Grows Here
A leftover from the pre-Ice Age
world is being nursed to maturity
at the University botanical gar-
dens.
Botanists are cautiously rearing
a baby metasequoia, a tree orig-
inally thought to be extinct. It's
lineage goes back some 50 million
years, and its ancestors are be-
lieved to be the forerunners of
the mighty redwood and the cyp-
rus.
THE FIRST evidence of the ex-
istence of the metasequoia was a
fossil found in Japan in 1941.
It was embedded in rock 50 mil-
lion years old.
Scientists assumed that the
tree was then extinct, until in
1945 a group of Chinese fores-
ters discovered a few metase-
quoias growing in central
China.
Prof. C. Q. Sze, of the Chinese
Academy of Science, investigated
the findings and sent several
twigs to Prof. Chester Arnold, of
the botany department.
L A T E R, TWO. seeds were
shipped here. One died,but the
other bloomed healthily, and is
today a tempermental but sturdy
one-foot-high sapling.
The little tree needs plenty
of attention to grow in this cli-
mate. Right now it is occupy-
ing a pot in the greenhouse
while it waits out a period of
semi-dormancy.
Given good odds for survival,
the tiny evergreen whose fathers.
begat redwoods will be no bigger
than a normal shade tree when
it reaches maturity.
To Go to Lan1sing
LANSING - (P) -- Dean A. C.
Furstenberg, of the Medical
School, is among medical leaders
called to a conference with Gov.
G. Mennen Williams Monday "to
see if we can develop some kind
of a program for the emergency
expansion of nursing and medi-
cal schools."

Generation
To Feature
War and'U'
A Symposium entitled "War
and the University," a discussion
written by two well known stu-
dents on what the functions, di-
rection, and attitudes of the Uni-
versity should be in these times
of national emergency, will be
featured in the new issue of
"Generation," which will go on
sale next Wednesday.
Phil Dawson, Grad, former
Daily editorial director, and Gor-
don MacDougall, '52, will take
differing but not antagonistic
views on the subject, according to
Saul Gottlieb, '52, co-literary edi-
tor of the arts magazine.
The new issue will also include
a complete and unusual drama
section which will cover every
phase of contemporary entertain-
ment.
Dan Waldron, '51 LS&A, drama
editor, announced that in addi-
tion to articles on movies, tele-
vision, and the theatre, a new
department, "Playbill," will ap-
pear for the first time.
The drama section will also in-
clude an article, "Camera's Eye,
Critic's Eye" by Alan Clamage,
'53L, Daily movie critic. In this
article Clamage discusses the
function of the movie critic' in
terms of the film itself and its
audience.
Merrill McClatchey, Grad, has
contributed an article on the pre-
sent state of television, which in-
cludes several "well founded" con-
jectures as to what the baby me-
dium may be in the future.

THAT BEAUTIFUL 'ENSIAN-Nancy Groesbeck, '53, (left) and Jean Purvis, '53, donned warm
weather garb to examine the cover of a 1951 Michiganensian, which will appear this spring.

Special lenten service programs
have been planned by most stu-
dent church groups.
With the beginning of Lent co-
inciding with registration week
and the first week of classes, the
extent of student participation
has not yet been ascertained.
But, judging by past years,
church councelors and ministers
said they expect a slight increase
in student church activity dur-
ing the religious season.
