than ten hours a week through an entire year to some piece
of research work, selected under the advice of the Professor of

Special post-graduate study or investigation Is planned to

siderable tract of ground with an irregular surface, for the
purpose of mapping it with five-foot contours, this survey
being based on a system of triangulation and levels which
forms a part of the work of the survey. ▲ railroad line is
also located from a contour map which is made In the
field, and the earth- work upon it computed. Determina-
tions are also made by the students for latitude, time, and
azimuthj and various other special problems worked out
