Alarm clocks, roosters, or even
morning bugle are out of order at th
Biological Station. Dr. Hopkins wa
awakened his first morning there b
the penetrating sound of Ford auto
mobile horns, scattered around th
camp and used as signals. At the cam
breakfast he found all the member
of the camp, students and facult
members alike, as the only cooking
quarters are centrally located an
are used byrall in attendance.
Take Boat Trip
An extensive boat ride on Dougla
Lake, in a launch piloted by a cam
mechanic, provided a morning pro-
gram for the director of the Summe:
Session. Professor LaRue pointed ou
the various resources of the lake fo
biological study, including smal
streams which empty into the lake
bogs and marshes, and other geo-
graphical factors which make the lo-
cation peculiarly adapted to the type
of work which is being carried on
there. Most of the study at the camp
is carried on by students working for
either master or doctor degrees, it was
explained by Professor LaRue, 85
per cent of the 92 in attendance
being graduates.
Grapevine Point and Devil's Elbow
the latter known only to two men
at the station, were among the places
visited by Dr. Hopkins, by means of
. the launch and the "water route."
After lunch at the camp, under the
guidance of Prof. W. F. Ramsdell
George Willis Pack professor of for-
est land management, the director
made an extensive study of the Bo-
gardis Tract, particular attention be-
ing paid to the road construction
and the fire lanes developed by the
University with the co-operation of
CCC workers. Visits were also made
to the camp's neighbors in that vi-
Cross Rapid Stream
At one time the party crossed a
very rapid stream, the source of which
is still unknown. Pouring forth a large
volume of water, the stream comes out
.from the side of a hill, probably one
of the outlets from Douglas Lake,
which is located above the spot.
Of special interest to Dr. Hopkins
was a horseshoe-pitching contest held
in the evening at the.camp. As official
referee of the contest, the directo
was so non-plussed at the unusual
and complicated method of keeping
score that he resigned his duties
though not before he had been secret-
ly shown the "prizes" to be distributed
to the winners of the event.
Professor LaRue told in detail of
the Visitor's Day ceremonies at the
station on the preceding Sunday
making special mention of what he
termed "the usual incident which al-
ways takes place on Visitor's Day.'
The usual incident was the state-
ment by one of the visitors that "al-
though the owl on the perch was
probably mounted by one of the Uni-
versity members it was nevertheless
a poor exampile of taxidermy." The
owl, it seems, is a live pet at the
Hear Camp Anecdote
Also amusing to members of the
camp's faculty, and to Dr. Hopkins
when it was related to him, was the
story of a woman visitor to the camp
this season who asked, upon being
shown the various skins and skulls
collected there, .how they managed
to get the skulls out of the animals
without killing them."
Tuesday evening, Dr. Hopkins was
the guest of honor at an informal
social gathering of the faculty mem-
bers and their wives. A neat, informal
party which would have done justice
to a similar affair actually on the
Michigan campus instead of the less
auspicious "wilds" of northern Mich-
igan, Dr. Hopkins classed the gather-
ing as being "extremely pretty" and
the appreciations shown as "of real

sincere attachment to the University
The greatest needs of the Biolog-
ical Station, Dr. Hopkins concluded
after his explorations about the terri-
tory, are for a new library and a con-
centration of the departments han-
dling the buildings and grounds. The
present library facilities are more
than insufficient and inadequate, and
an improved management of the
property is easily possible, he pointed

l inal station was housed still stand,
a tribute to the efforts of those who
have brought the camp to its out-
- Standing position of today. Of real
historical significance, they once
housed the first surveying camp of
the University. Now used for storage
rpurposes, they will be allowed to stand
if only for their historical value, Dr.
Hopkins insists.
Following breakfast on Wednesday
morning, Dr. Hopkins and his son
crossed the straits to St. Ignace, driv-
ing from there to Munising on the
shores of Lake Superior. They were
f welcomed at the Forestry Camp by
Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., director of
the camp, and Prof. Donald M. Mat-
thews, his colleague.
Actually a remodeled lumber camp,
the Forestry Camp consists mainly of
deserted lumbermen's cabins, unat-
tractive outside, but of sturdy con-
struction and neat and comfortable
within. Other buildings have been
f added since the camp has been used
by the University but it is still the
property of a lumber company and
is made up largely of the structures
which were there when the University
took it over.
32 Students At Camp
. The first morning at the camp was
spent by Dr. Hopkins in a thorough
survey of the area under observation
by the 32 students at the camp, and
in visiting a "lumber .camp on wheels"
which was operating near the station.
An unusual arrangement, the "port-
able" camp providing for the cuttiig.
down, trimming, and hauling away
of the trees. Dr. Hopkins declared the
sturdy horses used by: the lumber-
men to be the ""best-looking he had
seen since childhood days in Ken-
At noon the visitors joined the stu-
dents in the field for lunch, described
as an "excellently-prepared meal
'. brought to them on trucks, wherever
they happened to be studying."
The afternoon was spent- in a trip
to Munising, where the Summer Ses-
sion director met the local banker,
doctor, the head- of the large paper
mill located there and - to believe
s the report of Dr. Hopkins - also the
butcher, the baker, and the maker of
fine candle-sticks which come from
Michigan's northern woods. All of the
citizens of Munising were said by
Dr. Hopkins to be extremely inter-
ested in the University's camp, hav-
ing shown many courtesies -to the
students and faculty members sta-
tioned there.
Citizens Helpful
I The camp is much appreciated by
the citizens and to such an extent,
the director said, that the Rotarians
of Munising recently entertained the
entire camp at dinker and are soon
to have a return engagement at the
I camp, as guests of the students there.
"It is very valuable to the University
to have such an outpost in the Upper
Peninsula," Dr. Hopkins stated upon
- his return. "We are extremely pleased
with the interest which has been
I shown in the camp by those living
nearby and feel that such a unit
serves to better tie-up the interests of
those in the Upper Peninsula with
the University proper."
The Forestry Camp has a "Mich-
igan Union" also, though somewhat
more appropriately named than its

counterpart at the Biological Station,
according to Mr. Hopkins. Actually
the recreational center at the camp,
it provides facilities for ping pong,
checkers, chess, arnd many of the
games played in the "father club"
in Ann Arbor.
Camp pets are common at the Mu-
nising post, the director found, two
sparrow hawks being trained to serve
as falcons and other animals being
domesticated as "playmates." A snow-
shoe rabbit was caught the night the
director was at the camp.
"Rough And Ready"
The facilities of the camp are de-f
scribed as being "rough and ready"!
but nonetheless clean, attractive, and
suitable. One mother who had at first
objected to sending her son to the
camp because of his delicate health
was surprised to find that he had
gained, 20 pounds in the first three
weeks of his stay there, Professor
Craig told the director.
At the Forestry Camp, Dr. Hopkins
found that he had discovered the
ultimate in sleeping quarters during
his visits to the three camps this sum-
mer. While at the geology and geog-
raphy camp in Kentucky he was
housed in the infirmary; at the Bio-
logical Station he slept on Statej
Street; and at the forestry camp he
found himself housed in the library.
And when he awoke from his slumbers
the next morning and looked out the
windows of the crude camp study
hall he found a coating of ice on the
camp buckets. "And then," Dr. Hop-
kins declared, "I felt more like one of
the University's Greenland explorers
than a pleasure seeker at one of the
summer camps."
Dr. Hopkins was forced to return
to his home at Crystal Lake before
a trip, planned for Friday, was made
by all- members of the camp to the
lumber mills along Green Bay. But
before he. left, Dr. Hopkins claims to
have formed some very definite im-I
pressions about the camp.
Describes AdvantagesI
"Located by the side of the Hia-
watha National Forest, the Forestry
Camp of the University provides a
uniqueopportunity for those interest-
ed in such study," he states. "On the
one hand are the advantages of un-
disturbed natural forests, and on.the
other are the lands which have under-
gone interruptions by lumbering in-
dustry. Combined, the two present all
types of study to the interested for-
estry student."
"Thesonly possible objection to the
camp as it is now situated," Dr. Hop-'
kins, explained, "is the lack of per-
manency. Since the property is loaned
by a lumber company, the University
is naturally loath to make too many
improvements in the camp. Certainly
more definite arrangements will have
to be made in the near future, either
to the end of making the present
camp permanent or by finding some
other permanent location. But the
camp, as an institution, and as it is
now conducted, is an extremely suc-
cessful and worth-while project. The
University can be proud of it."

Miss Loomis' purpose in these sea-
sons, she says, is to weld together
a small but expert group of players
along the lines of such illustrious ex-
amples as the Moscow Art Theatre
and the Theatre Guild, and thereby
achieve a harmony and smoothness
unknown to stock companies.
That she is well on the road to suc-
cess in this becomes evident *when
you see one of the Vacation Theatre
productions. They are placed on the
tiny Northport stage in front of sets,
that are miniature masterpieces of)
color and design, and the actors work
together with exceptional enthusiasm
and confidence in one another. The
repertory idea, as a distinct reaction
to the disjointed star system and the.
haphazard stock company, seems to
be decidedly worth while.
