"There are M legal difficulties In the
way of such an arrangement. I asked
the state superintendent of public In
struction, Edward Hyatt,. who Is our
legal adviser in such matters, for an
unofficial opinion on this point. He
wrote to me that he saw no objection
to such a course either legally, morally
or In any other way.
'The only objection which society at
large could raise to this plan would
be the fear that this division of the
schools would Introduce sectarian rival
ries and jealousies. This might be the
result^ if we were considering some
European nation where sectarian feel
ing runs high, but 1 would not fear
It in this country now. for here such or
j ganizations have grown beyond the
doctrinal differences which in the past

-. l—L\
BERKELEY, Feb. 6—Joseph Grin
nell, director of the museum of Cali
fornia vertebrate zoology, chief avian
enumerator on the campus of the uni
versity, has just finished an official
count of beaks and has announced that
the bird census for 1910 willapproxi:
mate 10,000 souls.
The census gathering process was
one of the most unique ever attempted
in the United States and in, his inves
tigations Director Grinnell had to
traverse with his assistants 530 acres
of level, woodland and hilly ground
comprising the campus of the univer
sity proper and Its watershed to the
east in the Berkeley hills., ■ _
In a bulletin Issued from the uni
versity he admitted that his estimate
was rather conservative. Attempts at
padding are denied.
The centers of • population are de
clared to be the oaks on the campus
and the dense thicket, on the north
slopes of the hills. .
The census gathering could not be
rushed,'as was the federal census last
year. Grinnell devised a plan in which
he divided th. bird inhabitants into
four groups.
These Enumerator Grinnell admits
are arbitrary on his part. He elimin
ated some, he says:
Beeaoae of the arbitrary limitation of the
present Hat to those species which have been
seen 80 the ism vers'.!.,- gran-da. a number of well
known birds of the San Kraneiaeo bay region are
notably missing. Many of these, such as barn
awallor.-. .Trllowthr.it. *<*___ bluebird anil red
winged blackbird, will doubtless be added ln
coarse of time, at least as transient. .
The reports show, that there are 31
different permanent resident species
on the campus, 21 winter visitants, 21
summer visitants. 3 transients, making
a total of 76 species.
