Michigan's biological field station
will be located at Douglas lake in
Cheboygan county during the 19171
summer session at which special fa-t
cilities for field work in the study oft
biology and botany will be offered. I
The nature of the work at the sta-c
tion will be chiefly field work and lab-c
oratory work. The student is to learn
from personal experience the habitst
and behavior of plants and animals int
their native environment and also be-r
come familiar with modern methods of;
field work. The station is open to both
men and women who have had the
equivalent of an elementary college,
course in zoology, or botany and full
credit is given for the work done
either by undergraduates or by grad-.
Facilities are offered for research
in several lines of botany and zoology
by independent investigators or by
graduate students. Inquiries concern-
ing them should be addressed to Dr.
George LaRue of the University. A
special bulletin will be sent to those
who are interested in the biological
The following courses will be given
at the station: The history of ver-
tebrate animals, the natural history
of invertebrate animals, the natural
history of insects, the natural history
of birds, special research work in zo-
ology, field and forest botany, sys-
tematic botany, ecology, plant ana-
tomy, advanced systematic botany and
special and research work in botany.
(Editor's note-Arrangements have
been made with the secretary of the
University Bird club for the publica-
tion of a series of bird notes
that will be of value to those
who wish to observe the birds on their
canoe trips up the river or on their
excursions to the botanical gardens
and the boulevards. It is suggested
that these notes be saved from week
to week since they will form a valu-
able series by the time the school
year is finished.)
CULTIVATING THE CLOTHES SENSE-
No way to do it but to see as many clothes as pos-
sible that are excellently made-of well-combined
colors-and of graceful lines.

Work Progressing Rapidly on Library
One more step toward the comple-
tion of the new Library was taken yes-
terday when workmen started putting

In studying birds in the field sever-
al elementary facts must be under-
stood if success is to be realized.
In the first place always carry on
your observations with your back to
the sun, for otherwise you will not be
able to get an adequate idea of the
colors of the bird. Birds are naturally
and with good reason, afraid of human
beings, but they can usually be ap-
proached closely if one moves quietly
and slowly. The fewer people that go
together the better. One observer if
alone can get the best results, but two
can often see as many as one and be-
sides the company of one other per-
son is preferred by most people. A
field glass of some sort is very im-
portant. The best type is the prism
binocular which costs from $30 to $75.
An opera glass is better than nothing.
The study of birds in the field re-
quires first their identification. Many
people cannot distinguish between a
bluejay and a bluebird. There are
many bird books on the market that
will help one to learn the names of
birds. One of the best is Reed's Bird
Guide, a book published in two vol-
umes and in a size that will just fit
into a coat pocket. These volumes in-
clude a color key by means of which
it is easy to identify any bird seen,
since every species is shown in colors
as well as described.
Making records of observations will
render the field study of birds more
enjoyable and a bird calendar may be
be formed, containing a list of the dif-
ferent species and the dates when
they were first seen.
Besides the mere identification of
species there are many other phases
of bird study available for those who
find pleasure in outdoor life. Soon
after the birds arrive in the spring
they select their mates, often going
through very ludicrous, almost human,
performances during the process. This
is followed by nest building, egg lay-
ing, and the rearing of the young.
It is advisable at first to learn to
know a few of the common species
and then *add to this list from time
to time. The males of birds are more
brightly colored than the females and
have more beautiful voices, hence it
is best to become acquainted with
them before attempting to recognize
the more modestly colored females.
Some of the commion birds that one
is almost certain to see or hear on
a trip at this time are the following:
English sparrow, robin, bluejay, blue-
bird, bronzed grackle, chickadee, song
sparrow, muthatch, crow, phoebe,
downy woodpecker, hawk (red-tailed
red-shouldered or marsh), and kill-
deer. If specimens of the species are
examined in the University Museum
and descriptions of them read before
going into the field it will be an easy
matter to identify them when seen.
