Trevor K ' mcaid Etpenmenting with artificial propagation, Profes- sor Kincoid has played o large part in the develop- ment of the million-dollar-a-year Japanese oyster industry. Working under scientifically controlled conditions, he and his staff are adding new knowl- edge to the successful cultivation of oysters. Types of soil most adaptable to the growth of the bivalves ore constantly being analysed, and the depth In which oysters are most advantageously grown is a frequent topic of experiment. Looking through the microscope at a slide is Dr. Kincaid. George H. Rigg An authority on flora of the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Rigg has spent the past twenty-five years study- ing botanical specimens from northern California fo southeastern Alaska. As a reword for his research he was recently asked to submit a paper to the Botanical Review, a journal that receives only the work of recognized botanists. Peat bogs are of particular Interest to Dr. Rigg. Through his research he has traced their origin and know] their history. With the aid of a peat bore he Is able to take uncontaminated samples from any depth. Dr. Rigg with his peat bore and a sample chart of a peat bog. I

John H. Hanky Over $1,500,000 has been spent to make the Arboretum a beautiful and useful creation. In origin it dotes OS for bock os 1893, when the compus was selected.

Zwermann Dr. Carl Zwermann, head of the ceramics division of the College of Mines, has just started research on the properties of diatomite, a non-metallic min- eral. The experiment conducted by Dr. Zwermann Is part of a series on diatomite which the College of Mines has been conducting for some time, Diatom- ite, a silver aid and Insulating material, has the property of adsorption of cations and It Is this phase of the mineral ' s properties that Is being studied. The diotomite, enclosed In porchment poper. Is placed In a cell between two electrodes with the cotion to be adsorbed in suspension in the water. A direct current Is then put through the cell, and hydrogen replaces the cations which may happen to be olreody on the diatomite. The hydrogen is then replaced by the specific cations In suspension in the cell ond their effect on the other properties of the diatomite Is then studied. Dr. Zwermann and George Eyerly, graduate student, work- ing with the electro-dialysis of non-metoHlc minerals.

ARCH Rachel E. Hoffstadt Eight papers have been published by Dr. Hoff- stodt and her assistants on the nature of viruses. With the aid of an uttrapack. a type of rricroscope used in this work, cell changes resulting from the invasion of virus into the tissue have been studied successfully. Although virus usuolly grows only on the animal which it infects. Dr. Hoffstodt and her staff have successfully grown them on chicken mem- brane. By carefully watching the membrane under the ultrapack the rote of Invasion of the tissue and the reaction of the cells can be determined. Dr. Hoffstadt ond S. I. Reed, assistant, examining an " inoculoted " egg. Donald H. ioughridge A device which may help greatly in future weather prognosticating is the " Cosmic Roy Telescope. " Under the direction of Professor D. H. Loughridge, this bottery of vacuum tubes is aimed heavenward and registers on a complicated set-up of amplified dials the force of cosmic roys hitting the earth. High and low pressure areas, vital to weather fore- costing, have a definite correlation to the intensity of these rays striking the globe and this device may lead to more accurote and dependable forecasts. Dr. Loughridge with his cosmic ray telescope.
