DR. HECK m TO WASHIiTON The field trip made by Dr. Herbert Hecken- bleikner ' s Historical Geology class to the Smith- sonian Institution in Washington, D. C. was one of the major trips taken by the natural science students during the year. After the last class on Friday, February 2, a group of Geology 42 students gathered in the front hall of the school. Everyone was ready to leave except Carole Hinson. She had to go home and pack. During this wait, Dr. Heck started two other cars and arranged to meet in Raleigh. The weather was cold and a low of was ex- pected in Washington, Every car had a heater except Brice McLaughlin ' s Ford. There were enough blankets and no one froze, although a few got mighty cold. The first stretch to Raleigh and the second to Richmond were pretty easy, but on the final stretch to Washington, everyone was pretty tired and even the drivers were sleepy. Early the next morning the party arrived in Washington. While Brice Mc- Laughlin changed a tire, the other two cars made an early morning inspection of the city. After breakfast they located a tourist camp in Alexandria to spend the night. The objective of the trip was an examination of the exhibits on display in the geology section of the Smithsonian. Here the student had an opportunity to see one of the finest collections of fossilized plant and animal remains to be found anywhere. The most spectacular exhibits are the skeletons and restorations of the giant reptiles. The gem and mineral stone collections were also inspected. L. A. Spake found a group of models posing for pictures and spent his time watching them. Dr. Heck picked out a Chinese Restaurant where the group ate lunch. Dr. Heck had a chance to use chop sticks which he did very successfully. After lunch it was back to the Institution to take some pictures while some others went shopping. After supper another tour was made of Wash- ington. Some of the students went to the home of Dr. Heck ' s sister where a small cocktail party was going on. On the way back to the tourist camp, they stopped to go skating. After a very eventful trip, the group returned to Charlotte.
