For Research Oil Work
A large collection of models of
forammifera, minute organisms of
great value in oil work, have been
purchased by the University of Ne
braska, and are being used by Dr.
Eula D. McEwan, of the department
of geology, in conducting a class in
the application of paleontology to
problems of petroleum. During the
last few veara the study of these
orraniimis has become of considera
ble importance, because of their use
in oil work, and there is a demand
for workers trained in this field of
study , Owing to its special instruc
tional facilities, the University has
an enviable reputation for oil investi-
Ration and research work. Many j
prominent positions both in this and '
foreign countries are held by Ne
braska graduates. Only one other 1
University in the United States is
prepared to offer such work as Is

tion concerning qualities and uses,
