E~dtor. The Michigan Daily:
It is now about -nine years since the
University of Michigan biological sta-
tion came into existence, and yet after
this lapse of time a considerable pro-
portion of the University community
does not know that the station ex-
ists, what it aims to do, or who
is eligible to make use of its priv-
ileges. To make known son'e of these
facts is the purpose of this letter.
A biological station for the purpose
of teaching and investigation was au-
thorized by the Board of Regents ini
1909, ~nd was located on a 'tract of
land on - the shores of Douglas lake,
in the northern part -of the southern
peninsula of Michigan. The tract
was j>urchased primarily as a site for
the Engineering station but has prov-
ed to be satisfactory for a biological
Log Cabin First
The station at first occupied for a
laboratory a single log cabin, the re-
mains of a logging camp of earlier
days. Later a- tent laboratory was
added, then another log building was
fitted up, an aquarium shelter built
and in 1914, a new metal covered
building was erected. Since 1913 the
station has maintained its own mess,
separate from the engineers, whose
camp is only a third of a mile away.
From the beginning members of the
teaching staff and qualified students
have been engaged as far as time and
strength permitted in investigating the
animal and plant resources of the
region. By this time a considerable
number of papers based wholly, or
in part, on work, done at the station
have been published, while many oth-
er investigations are in progress. But
instruction in the classification, natur-
al history and ecology of animals and
plants has been the chief business of
the instructional force.. Classes are
usually limited to 12. A large share
of the class work. is done in the field
by means of field trips, which may re-
quire from one hour to one day, and
rarely a class makes such an extend-
ed trip that it is necessary to stay
over night in a neighboring town. On
all day trips food, both cooked and
uncooked, is taken along, and the
noonday meal 'is prepared and eaten
about the campO firea
The schedule is such that there is
no hurrying to camp to meet anoth-
er class, for no student can carry two
courses on the. same day, since all
coursqs are in session not for one or
two hours, but for the day. The stu-
dent is thus permitted to do work
which -'for character, quality, and
quantity could not be duplicated in
any institution run on a university
schedule. Students are brought into
intimate acquainta'nce with living
plants and animals; how they live;
why they live where they do; and
their inter-relations. A single course,
viz.: Plant anatomy is conducted sole-
ly in the laboratory, but in such a way
as to point out how plant structures
relate plants to their environment.

A special police officer has been de-
tailed to prevent further dlepredations
to war gardens, by chickens and dogs
running at large'.
Owing to the complaints the police
have been receiving daily, they have
found. it necessary to detail an officer1
to see that the practice be discontin-
ued. He has been instructed to
"arrest" all chickens and dogs found
at large.
This action is in accordance with a
request issued by Federal Food Ad-
ministrator Prescott a few days ago,
for police, to prevent damage to war
gardens by animals, because of the
extreme need of crops this year.
