The Handbook of Indiana Geology is, in a large measure, the result of a co-operative plan which had its inception shortly after the establishment of the Department of Conservation of Indiana. The plan constitutes an agree ment whereby the instructional staff of the Department of Geology. Of Indiana University conducts the field and laboratory investigations for the Department of Conservation, thus obviating the necessity for large salary expenditures. In this manner our slender geological funds may be used to defray other expenses incurred in the investigation of the mineral resources of Indiana. This plan of co-operation under which not even the State Geologist's salary is paid by the Division, provides the Department of Conservation a corps of trained workers in all the various phases of geological work. Phases having a cultural, educational, economic and scientific bearing. Evidence of the success of the co-operative plan is to be found in the present volume.
There is a Latin proverb to the effect that nothing worth while is aecom plished without great effort. It is well exemplified in this treatise. Some of the preliminary investigations necessary for the results embodied in this volume have been carried on by the collaborators for more than a score of years. During the past two years their efforts have been concentrated toward the completion of the work. Each spare moment has been employed without expectation of monetary reward. Thus we have here garnered the fruits of years of labor at an expense to the State of what amounts virtually to the cost of printing the volume. Sales from two of the chapters which were printed in advance will assist materially in defraying the expenses of printing the complete work.
