The scientific expedition to the Bad Lands of Oregon next summer promises to be very successful. The expedition will be under the charge of Professor Scott, and will be limited in number to eight men, these to be chosen by competitive examination from the upper classes. There will probably be about twenty men take the examination. The object of the expedition is, primarily, the collection of fossil skeletons for the museum, and incidentally, the gathering of specimens pertaining to other branches of science. Professor Scott has already made five trips to the West for a similar purpose.
