Two Geological Trips During Recess

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Department of Geology and Geography will conduct two excursions during the April recess, one to Martha's Vineyard and the other to New Jersey. The first party, under the direction of Assistant Professor J. B. Woodruff and E. Wigglesworth '08, will leave the South Station today for Gayhead, on the western end of the island of Martha's Vineyard, where the party will stay until the following Friday studying the Gayhead Cliffs. Professor Woodruff has been engaged at odd times since 1887 in watching the retreat of these cliffs under the action of the sea.

The second expedition, conducted by Professors Wolff and Palache, will leave for New York via the Fall River boat on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be spent at Franklin Furnace, New Jersey, and on Saturday the party will visit Beemerville, returning to New York late Saturday in order to take the midnight train to Boston. Those who wish to see the Paterson trap quarries may return to Boston Sunday night.
