Experts of the Biological Survey1 experiment station at Unalakleet,! studying the reindeer industry, have! made already a number of discover-j ies which indicate changes in pres ent methods, that will work for the! betterment of the industry and a les sening of the death rate of the I herds, according to a statement mad.' recently by Dr. E. W. Nelson. Chief of the Biological Survey, in an ar ticle contributed by him in a late i sue of the Weekly News Letter published by the Department of Ag riculture. The Unalakleet station was es tablished last season under the per sonal supervision of Dr. Nelson who spent several weeks in Alaska study ing the industry and Alaska game conditions. He is confident that the reindeer industry in a. short time will not only be on important factor in Alaskan development but will mean much to the United States. The article mentioned above fol lows: During the last session of Congress the Biological Survey of the De partment of Agriculture was given an appropriation to assist In devel oping the reindeer business in Al aska. In order to carry out the oh , jects of this appropriation, I secured ! experts and with them proceeded to1 Alaska in July, when the reindeer experiment station was established at Unalakleet, on the coast of Bering, Sea, fcfr the purpose of studying the I parasites and diseases of reindeer and working out remedies for their ■control, as well as to conduct an in-1 vestigation into the grazing condi tions and requirements of the rein deer herds with a view to the fu ture allotment of grazing areas to the herd owners and to determine improved methods for handling the herds. Since my return to Washington I have received reports from the ex perts in Alaska showing that they have already gained information suf ficient -to indicate important changes for the betterment of the industry and for reducing the death rate of animals in the herds. Les3 than SO yearn ago. 1,280 rein deer were introduced into Alaska from Siberia for the purpose of es tablishing herds to assist the Eski mos in maintaining themselves, ow ing to the disappearance of wild car ibou and the reduction in numbers of seals and other sea animals along tho coast, endangering the future of the natives. The success of this experiment has been extraordinary, as the number of descendants of the original importation of reindeer into Alaska now are estimated at approximately 200,000, of which about 50,000 belong to white men and the remainder to Eskimos. Resembles Meat of Young Beef Reindeer meat, is juicy, tender, and practically without that gamy flavor which characterizes so much other game, it most nearly s^jpmbles the mpat of yearling beef. Tin* skins of reindeer are valuable for glove mak Ing purposes. Tanned with their hair on, they are very light, and robes made from the soft tanned skins of reindeer with the hair on are for weight by far the warmest covering known. These might become ex 'rentely useful for automobile robes for winter in the colder parts of the country. The homen Brothers, and their an socdate3, Mr, Jafet Lindeberg, of Nome, Alaska, are the largest owners of reindeer among the white men, having about 35,000 in their herds During the past summer they im ported and erected on the shore of Bering Sea between Nome and the j mouth of the Yuyon River, two small i refrigerating plants with the neces i sary concentration corrals. The rein j doer steers to be killed for exporta tion will be driven to these places, where they will be slaughtered and I their carcasses chilled for shipment j to Seattle. Experimental shipments during the past few years have dem onstrated that there is good demand for reindeer meat in the United ' States, which ia now taking the place of native game which no long er can legally be sold.

Next year it is planned* to make regular ship ments on a considerably larger scale and with the rapid increase of the herds, shipments will continue to grow until reindeer meat from A1 askiv becomes a recognized article of food throughout the country. Reindeer live on the treeless Arc tic plains, where in summer they I feed mainly on the abundant vege ! tation which the short Arctic sum mer produces, and in winter eat the j lichen, commonly itjalled reindeer moss, which covers great areas of the North. These arctic plains or tundras, cover many millions of acres round the Bering Rea and Arctic coast of Alaska. The introduction 'of reindeer into Alaska has indicated that these arctic plains, which hither I to were considered desert wastes, are really valuable grazing lands which will he a source of a new suit lily to meet the growing demands. In this connection, it is interest ing to know that the Canadian Gov eminent last June leased a great area of land in extreme northern Canada to Stefansson, the Arctic ex plorer, for the purpose of being stocked with reindeer. The Cana dian Government is taking an active interest in the development of this novel industry. lO'/r reduction, Boston Stofe.—adv The postponed Sophomore lion v/fll be given Friday night, Feb. 11, 8 P.
