Abstract

Following the authorization of this survey by Commissioner O'Malley the writer at the suggestion of Congressman French wrote Corrmissioner E. O. Cathcart, Secretary of the Idaho Pollution Commission, at Harrison, Idaho con cerning our needs and Mr. Cathcart assembled certain specimens and material from time to time for this survey in advance of our actual arrival in Idaho. It was planned to begin the field work around the first of June but following correspondence with the Idaho CoiTmission this was found to be impracticable owing to the high stage of water, and the actual field work was postponed until we were notified that conditions were favorable for field work.
