0. S. GEOLOGISTS
TO STUDY EUROPE
Hope to Trace Relationship
of Rock Strata of Two
An attempt to improve knowledge
of the geologic relations of Kurope
>o North America will he made this
Summer by Dr. E. o. Ulrich and Dr.
C. E. Rosser of the Smithsonian in
stitution and Prof. R. M. Field on an
extensive exploration tour in Kurope.
The three scientists will study the
rock strata by applying principles of
stratigraphy evolved mainly by Dr.
Ulrich. They will cover nearly all
of western Europe by auto, paying
particular attention to outcroppings
of ancient rocks in central England,
northern Scotland, Wales, Scandinavia
It was said at the Museum yester
day that newer methods of reading
the language of time recorded in the
rocks now is in order, which, when
more extensively applied, may reveal
much regarding the geography of the
days of ancient life.

The old .methods were an out
growth of the first geologic concep
tions that the 'different strata of the
earth were laid on like the layers of
an onion by the continental surfaces
sinking, evenly below sea level. The
newer principles arc based on the
conception that the continents do not
rise and sink evenly, but that the
motion is differential, allowing tlie
ocean to spread over the land in
the form of bays, first from one
side and then from the other, lienee

in the seas will entomb the animals
Since it did not happen, so far as
is now known, that enibayments from
the same ocean covered at the same
time parts of what are now North
.America and Europe, there are no
exactly simultaneous records. The
task becomes one of discovering sucli

out the older rocks which come to the
surface at various places in the
United States and which crop out in
Europe mainly in the centers to be
Animal life, which was all marine
at the time these rocks were laid
down, was fairly abundant and well
developed when the first evidences of
it were laid in the rocks, Dr. Resser
said. The first living creatures prob
ably were so soft and poorly develop
ed that they decayed too quickly
after death to be buried in the mud
which later formed the rocks, so that
they left no impress.
The expedition will be under the
joint auspices of the Smithsonian In
stitution and Princeton University.

DEBS TO EDIT WEEKLY.
Socialists to Finance Paper to Be
CHICAGO, May IS OP).—Eugene V.
Debs, veteran chieftain of the Social
ist party, will edit a new weekly pub
lication to be known as “The Ameri
can Appeal,’’ which will be financed
by what is called a “revolving fund."
Socialists were asked in circulars from
party headquarters to invest from SI
to SIOO in subscription cards, then sell
the cards, reinvest the proceeds in
more subscription cards and continue
to sell and buy.
Increased factoiy output -
on square-tube beds will astonish you
Call on your furniture merchant. Ask to see his
finest Simmons squarc-tube beds. Pick the one you
like best without giving a thought to price. Then
ask what it costs. The figure he names will be so
low you will wonder how such value is possible.
But the value is there. Speeding up production in
the world’s largest bedding factories has made
radical savings on the best square-tube beds built.
Even Simmons’ masterpieces—the beds you have
seen advertised in full colors in the magazines—
are now brought within easy reach. Their new
prices are actually below pre-war price
