Dear Bob and John:

We are now in the period of registration for the Spring Quarter. I
have alist of 16 students who will register for the field school.
Four of them are girls, the rest boys, plus myself will make 17
for the field school.

Am I right in assuming that I am to live in the quarters you have recently
acquired? It looks as if things might be a bit crowded with seventeen
in three apartments. I guess I should come over soon and look at things
to get a better idea.

I recently talked with Hale and he says that his doctor doesn't want
him to run a field school, which sounds altogether reasonable. I
gathered that we can have the use of his bunks and mattresses. I suppose
we will have to see about moving them ourselves.

Will we need to provide refrigerators and stoves in case we want to do
any cooking.

I've been unable to reach John Cornell in NSF --- he is always in
meetings. His assistant is, of course, a typical bureaucrat and says
that nothing can be decided yet, no information, do nothing, or just
do push-ups while we decide what to do. I suppose that I shouldn't
be as irritated by brueaucracy, but I do enjoy being irked.

As to field equipment: We will bring:

two power screens, probably still gasoline powered as we have some
other jobs in sight.
Transit, tripod, tapes, level rod.
lane table & tripod, but no alidade.
Sgquare-point shovels
Misc. small tools
What about stakes?
What about plastic bags, string, magic markers, notebooks, etc?
I can also bring an electric centrifugal pump or a gasoline powered
centrifugal pump. Which would be better?
We will also bring tarps, sun screens, etc. What about wheelbarrows?
We have two wheelbarrows, if they are needed.

Let me know your ideas. I've agreed to go to the Winterthur Conference
on March 23-25 and will be gone from Gainesville all that week so
will be somewhat out of touch. /
