Teaching fellow of Geography Richard F. Logan will be an assistant professor next fall, but he'll have to go 3000 miles for his promotion.
Notified last month that his temporary appointment here would not be renewed in July, Logan yesterday announced that he had accepted the post of assistant professor at the University of California at Los Angeles.
Logan's duties at the College will terminate in June, and he plans to head westward at the end of that month.
The appointments of two other faculty members connected with the Department of Geology and Geography, Edward A. Ackerman, assistant professor of Geography and Edward L. Ullman, assistant professor of Regional Planning, are good until the end of 1949. At that time, the College will return to only one Geography professor.
"I'm amazed at the short-sightedness of dropping geography at the present time," Logan declared yesterday. "Through the rest of the country, the field is progressing very rapidly."
Meanwhile, both the Student and Graduate Councils continued investigations of the field's recent abolition. A five-man committee is heading the Student Council probe.
