Pacific ocean.
Prof. Pollock spent several years i
the H~awaiian islands studying plan
life and the formation of coral reefs
He was alsQ a member of the expedi
tion conducted in 1923 unider the aus
pices of the United States Navy among
the islands of the Hawaiian group. Th
expedition of 1923 consisted of trips
to the islands of Wake and Johnson
They were conducted for the purpose
of bettering navigation and to furthe
the knowledge of the sicences. The
navy furnished the means of trans-
portation consisting of two mine
sweepers and two, destroyers and a
aeroplane. There were fifteen scient-
ists -in the party representing almost
every field of science.
Started in 1923
The expedition started in March,
1923, and continued through October,
with short trips dasting two weeks
each to the various places of interest.
The first island to be visited was
Johnson island. This island is sur-
rounded by a Coral, reef miles in dia-
mqeer and could only be reached by
small boat. Only three kinds of plant
life were found here, two creeping
plants and a kind of tough grass. It
was discovered that the islands have
their foundations on the coral reefs
which surroud them. The reefs are
laid in ridges that slope towards the
Wake ;island, one, in the southern
group, was explored next. Eighteen
kinds of, plant life were found here
and the same kinds of coral- forma-

Prof. Pollock anade his greates
study of coral formations on the is-
land of Wahoo where he spent over
a year. The main body of the lectu-e
was taken from what was found there.
Slides of the various rock formations
and plant life were the features of the
lecture. Measurements in all detail
were shown of the plant life found
in the coral rock.

responding to the situations was a de-
