Experiments May Revolutionize Theory
Lawrence B. Slobodkin, of Mich-'
igan's zoology department, is
presently conducting experiments
which may revolutionize the theory
of commercial exploitation.
Slobodkin's first hurdle Is to
control and understand the num-
bers and kinds of animals existing
in nature. After this is ascer.
tained, a method of exploiting
them can be determined. Exploita-
tion deals with the number of
animals which can be utilized and'
still maintain a balance for the
continuance of the species, with-
out leaving an overabundance.
Daphnia Being Studied
Artificial communities are set
up where the experimental animal,
the Daphnia, is observed. This
particular animal is used in the
experimentation because its life'
span is from one to ten days.
Therefore, results can be quickly
obtained. Populations of Daphnia
are kept in constant conditions in
an incubator, and are "fished" ac-
cording to various exploitation
systems. They are then counted
every four days with the use of a
The ultimate goal is to find the
method for the greatest yield and
the most stable population, and to

Two Similar Studies
This study is the first of its
kind. However, there have been
two similar studies, one conducted
in Australia using flies and one
in Chicago using beetles. Financial'
aid for the experiments is supplied
by the Rac1kham Faculty Research
Granrts and the Rockefeller Foun-
dation. The results of the testing,
when perfected, will possibly be
used by fisheries on a national
and international scale.

several papers in technical jour-

in West Virginia, and received his
doctorate at Yale University be-

MY GAME ! LUCKY DROODLESI
For solution, see
paragraph at. right.
THERE'S NO GETTING AROUND IT-Luckies taste
better. And there's no getting around that thing in
the Droodle at left, either-the Droodle's titled:
Lucky smoker with bum seat at football game. Poor
guy is really up against it. But he's got a swell point
of view on smoking-he smokes Luckies for better
taste. Luckies taste better because they're made
of fine tobacco that's TOASTED to taste better.
Chances are our friend in Section 28 is thinking,
"This is the best-tasting cigarette I ever smoked!"

He may know, and probably does know, an able detective sergeant, a
couple of prominent business men, a flamboyant ward boss, a shy but
brilliant professor of physics, a railroad executive, a wise and well-loved
minister, an old-time civil servant in the city hall who can remember
everything that happened there during the past forty years, a leading
banker, a judge and a notable doctor.
He has acquired their trust and their respect and hence they will talk
freely with him.
He is gifted with "a sense of smell" as to what is phony and dubious.
Perhaps he never could be an outstanding Washington or foreign cor-
Perhaps he much prefers his own line of work.
Competent performance of a local reporter's job is not easy, but it
may be attended by great satisfaction and a world of romance.
If you are primarily interested in security and starting with big pay
(and such interests are common and very natural), newspaper work as
a career does not hold much of an appeal.
If you like to work hard, to be something of an artist, to laugh and
dream a little, and never to know what is going to happen next, then
newspaper work as a career probably offers more than anything else.
