    The Lower Dolomite Member of the Ordovician Chazy Limestone and the St. Peter Sandstone of North-Central Kentucky and Southwestern Ohio
    (1965-03) Carpenter, Gene C.
    Until recently little was known of the exact disposition of the Lower Dolomite Member of the Chazy Limestone and the St. Peter Sandstone in the area of study. This study has been done to illustrate their relationship to the underlying erosional topography on the Knox Dolomite Group. The Lower Dolomite Member of the Chazy Limestone varies in thickness from a maximum of 100 feet to zero. The greater thicknesses are deposited in erosional valleys developed in the Knox Dolomite and the thinner sections are found deposited over the higher remnants, or hills, of Knox Dolomite. The use of geophysical well logs for placing the upper contact of this unit is very helpful. The sandstone pinches out in the area of study in an easterly direction. A local depression or basin was formed in northern Kentucky where in excess of 60 feet of sand accumulated. The sands were probably from two sources: 1) sand from the St. Peter source area as erosion progressed landward, and 2) local erosion of Knox Dolomite "hills".

    Lavoisier's Fundamental Contribution to Stratigraphy
    (1965-03) Carozzi, Albert V.
    Antoine Lavoisier's memoir of 1789 entitled "General observations on the recent marine horizontal beds and on their significance for the history of the earth" is the first detailed account of the fundamental principle of transgressive and regressive overlaps, usually attributed to Amedeus W. Grabau (1906). In this major contribution to stratigraphy, Lavoisier, through his explanation of the significance of basal conglomerates, also reached the modern concept of sedimentary cycle. He furthermore described the mechanical distribution of littoral sediments by decreasing grain-size with increasing depth and distance from shoreline, and related it to the idea of a shore profile of equilibrium. The detailed sections which accompanied Lavoisier's essay gave the first outline of a correct classification of the Tertiary deposits of the Paris basin.

    Sex Attraction in the House Fly, Musca Domestica L.
    (1965-03) Murvosh, Chad M.; LaBrecque, G. C.; Smith, Carroll N.
    Attraction tests have shown that virgin female house flies attract both virgin males and females but the degree of attraction is relatively small. A tentative hypothesis of chemical sex attraction is suggested. The attraction does not appear to be due to moisture, motion, or sound effects.

    Observations on Archips Cerasivoranus (Fitch) (Tortricidae: Lepidoptera) and Certain Parasites (Diptera: Hymenoptera)
    (1965-03) Balduf, W. V.
    The ugly-nest caterpillar, A. cerasivoranus completes one cycle in a year at Eaglesnest Lakes near Ely, in northeastern Minnesota. The egg masses, laid on Prunus virginiana L., from early July to mid-August, constitute the wintering stage. Caterpillars hatch about June 1 and complete their growth by late July, with pupation occurring from late June to August 10. Seven insect parasites attacked the moth in 1959-1961. The Tachinid, Actia diffidens Curran, inhabited as many as 88 per cent of the caterpillars. The second instar attaches itself to the host mesopleura, and the third matures in the prepupal host in its cocoon. Pupariation occurs on the ground. Seven adults of Dichaetoneura leucoptera Johnson, Tachinidae, were reared from nests. The larvae and pupae of an unidentified egg parasite were found about June 1. Two species of Ichneumonidae, Labrorychus prismaticus (Nort.) and Exochus albifrons Cress., parasitize the larger caterpillars, and pupate in the host chrysalises. A third, Itoplectis conquisitor (Say) probably oviposits in the prepupae. It completes its development in the chrysalis. Females of Ancistrocerus antilope (Panz.), Vespidae, paralyzed the larger caterpillars.

    Some Internal and External Parasites of the Redwinged Blackbird, Agelaius Phoeniceus Phoeniceus L., from Central Ohio, Including Descriptions of Three New Feather Mites
    (1965-03) Spory, Gerhard R.
    From sixty-one redwinged blackbirds that were collected and examined between 1962 and 1963, eighteen species of parasites were recovered. Seven species of parasites represent new host records. These are: the trematode Conspicuum icteridorum; the feather mites Strelkoviacarus critesi sp. n., Mesalges johnstoni sp. n., Proctophyllodes egglestoni sp. n., Dermoglyphus sp.; the nasal mite Speleognathus sp.; and the mallophagan Machaerilaemus laticorpus. Cited is a table containing previous published and unpublished records of parasites taken from redwinged blackbirds.
