HARVARD GEOLOGISTS TO TRAVEL THIS SPRING

TEAPOT DOME SCANDAL INVOLVED IN MATHER'S TASK

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Professor Kirtley Mather will go to California and Professors Charles Palache, C. D. Daly, and E. S. Larsen Jr. will go to Spain this spring on geological expeditions. Professor Mather leaves at the end of this month for ElkHills oilfields, where he will remain for four weeks in an effort to get information for the government's use in a law suit which it has been carrying on for some time. It is in connection with the Teapot Dome oil scandal of two summers ago. The Elk Hills fields were leased to Doheney at the same time as Sinclair secured Teapot Dome. "I don't know what I'll find," Professor Mather told a CRIMSON reporter yesterday, "and maybe when I'm through, the government won't like my evidence." When College is over Professor Mather intends to do some private work in Nova Scotia.

Professors Palache, Daly, and Larsen will all be present at the meeting of the International Geological Congress this spring in Spain. It convenes once every spring in Spain. It convenes once every three years, and its purpose is to provide opportunities for eminent geologists to meet each other, regardless of nationality. Plans for this year's convention have not been definitely decided upon as yet, but a large attendance is expected.

After the Congress breaks up, the Harvard representatives will separate. Professor Palache will remain in Spain for the rest of the summer. Professor Daly will go to the Swiss Alps to study their structure. This will be a continuation of the researches he has been carrying on for some time as to the causes for the formation of mountains. Professor parsen will return from Spain early in the summer and will travel to southwestern Colorado for the United States Geological Survey to study volcanic rocks.
