Intercollegiate Geological Excursion
The seventh annual New England intercollegiate geological field excursion is being held today at Providence, R. I., under the supervision of Professor J. B. Woodworth '94, of Harvard, Professor C. w. Brown, of Brown University, and Professor Emerson, of Amherst College. The headquarters of the party in Providence are at the Crown Hotel.
The particular formation to be studied is a structure section of the Narragansett Basin. A carboniferous sandstone lying to the east of Providence will be examined first. Later a study will be made of the carbonaceous shales and the graphite mine at Cranston, west of Providence. From Cranston toward Natick there extends an underlying basal conglomerate with ancient crystalline packing. The party will return to Providence by way of Natick at about 1 o'clock.
