University, he does not choose

Breeds Crossed ,
By cross-breeding the various
strains of the mice, and subjecting
them to different conditions and
stimuli, variations in their re-
sponses are measured.
As in humans, abnormal be-
havior appears in certain strains,
Prof. Dice related.
"Many have convulsions and
tremors. These characteristics ap-
pear in natural populations when
harmful characteristics emerge in
the mating process. But they
seldom survive of course.
"For this reason, characteristics
harmful to a species are seldom
evident in the natural environ-
ment," he said. , 'w
Interest Raised
Prof. Dice recalls that he be-
came interested in biology as a
youth. He grew up on a ranch
near Walla Walla, Wash. His
father moved there in 1889 when
son Lee was two.
"Educational o u t l e t s were
mighty slim out there," he said.
His active mind found hours of
pleasure in his father's books.
Some botany texts proved to be
the stimulant for his life's work.
After spending a year at Wash-
ington S t a t e University, and
another at University of Chicago
("I didn't like the big city"), he
moved on to Stanford University
for his A.B. degree..
He then embarked on a two-

special abilities," Prof. Dice said,
commenting on Stephen G. Van-
denberg's completed study.
Prof. Dice himself has done ex-
tensive research in the ecology
and genetics of the deer mouse,
and is still compiling information
from a colony of about 4,000.

"These animals are representa-
tive of adaptive characteristics,"
he explained.
"Their specific habitat limita-
tions are expressed in physical
characteristics. A forest - living

year assignment with the Fisheries
Service in Alaska.
Observation Duty
Assigned to observe fur-bearing
animals in the interior wilderness
for trapping regulations informa-
tion, Dice and his party organized
a 1,500-mile trip beginning at the
junction of the Yukon and Tanana
In early February of 1912, they
dogsledded southward to the foot-
hills of Mount McKinley arriving
in April. There, at the headwaters
of the Kuskoquim River, they built
a boat of spruce boards which was
to carry them 1,100 miles down-
river to the head of navigation,
about 90 miles inland from the
Bering Sea.
They reached Bethel by Septem-
ber, only to find that they had
missed 'the Seattle steamer which
sailed up the Kuskoquim to Bethel
only once a year.
One Alternative-
The only alternative to a dreary,
icebound winter in Bethel was a
portage of boat and supplies to
that point.
The party struck out in true
northwoods fashion, and reached
St. Michaels at the mouth of the
Yukon in late October just as the
Winer freeze-up began settling on
the river.
After the Alaska venture, Dice
returned to the University of Cali-
fornia for his master's and doc-
toral degrees. It was there that he
met his wife Dora, also a candi-
date for a masters degree in bio-
logy. They have been married 39
years now, raising in order Eliza-
beth Jane, John, and Dorothy
After his induction into the
Army Medical Corps in August,
1918 and discharge the following'
February, he taught at, Kansas
State College for a brief period. A
short stretch of teaching in Mon-
tana State University followed.
Joint Work
He then worked with the emi-
nent ecologist of University of
Illinois, Dr. V. E. Shelford. While
here, he was called to this Univer-
sity through the efforts of Kansas
State roommate Paul S. Welch
(now Professor Emeritus) of the
zoology department.
Under the guiding hand of Alex-
ander G. Ruthven, then director
of the museum of zoology and
later University president, Prof.
Dice began a research program in
evolution and ecology of mam-
His work lead to his transfer as
director of the laboratory of verte-
brate biology in 1934, having
served as curator in the zoology
museum since he joined the Uni-
versity. He taught z o o l o g y
"Nothing startling happened in
my career," he mused. "It's mostly
everyday work, and results appear
slowly. That's what science is."
