SMITHS Cleaning and Pressing N. Gate Phone 4-4444 —BIOLOGY— (Continued from Page 1) the scarcity of teachers with abil ity, has placed a premium upon high school teachers of scientific subjects. Scientific forestry, pointing the way to better and more abundant houses for the homeless, also of fers many jobs to well-trained bio logists. , The reasons for the increased de mand in branches of Biological Science may be enumerated as fol lows: 1. The government has increased its demand for research scientists. 2. There has been an increase in demand in industries, such as, Pick le Factories, Leather Tanners, Fruit Companies in preventing disease of fruits, and numerous other industries. 3. The war itself has put new emphasis on all phases of Science and the great need for further de velopment. “Such discoveries as, Penecillin, D.D.T., and a host of others which are used as health giving, health restoring, and health protection substances are merely the founda tions for a superstructure to be built around them”, Dr. Doak said. —BATT POLL— (Continued from Page 1) even if contributions had to be asked from the students in order to commence such a project.
