SNAKE COLLECTOR WORKS FOR 00 SAN DIEGO, June 2. This is the first year that the San Diego Zoological Society has employed a collector, except for short individual trips. Hundreds of snakes have, however, been collected in this vicinity, principally San Diego county, and brought to the zoo every year. The snake contest has been largely responsible for the comprehensive collecting and for the thoroughness of the distribution charts that Mr. Klauber has been able to prepare. But this year It was decided it might be profitable from a scientific standpoint to have some one in the field who would make a systematic collection and devote all of his time to It. F. E. Walker, who has been the winner of the snake contest and has brought about 300 reptiles each year to the zoo, which he picked up In his spare time, was selected as practical collector who was familiar with the work and with the territory. April was something of a disappointment on account of the continued cold, but during the month Walker brought in 150 reptiles, consisting of snakes, lizzards, salamanders, frogs and toads. The employment of a collector will open up a wider field than has been explored heretofore by the society, because part of his time will be spent in the bordering counties and States, where extensive scouting has been impossible before. This will be Interesting and will not only open up new territory, but add much valuable knowledge to that now available on the more local fields. . FROG-LEG BANQUETS NEW STUDENT FAD ONTARIO, June 2.
