Appreciation of Native Plants
Is Aim of Sweetser.
In the lfst two issues of tlie Sunday
Oregonian have appeared the first arti
cles of a series by Professor A. R.
Sweetser of the University department
of botany, as part of a statewide cam
paign to preserve and transplant native
shrubs and wild flowers. The purpose
0f the campaign is to create sufficient
loVe for the beauty of Oregon’s native
plants to induce motor parties and other
travelers to get their enjoyment of the
blossoms largely from viewing them in
fbeir natural setting rather than cut
ting them wastefully.
The emphasis in Professor’s sweet
jjpr’s articles is laid on the recognition
0f the shrubs at this tbne of the year, ,
which is the time to transplant. Jh>
productions ,of photographs of bloom
stalks and seed pods are given. |
Professor Sweetser advocates not only
preserving the shrubs where they are,
but transplanting to parks, school yards,
along highways, etc, where conditions
are favorable to their growth.
The series of articles in the Oregon
ian will continue for several weeks, tak
ing up the annuals and other flowering
plants after the shrubs. The two papers 1
which have come out illustrate and de-!
scribe various varieties of the wild rose,
syinga, spirea, rhododendron, ocean
spray, Oregon grape, and other flowering
shrubs native to the state.
At a luncheon in Portland last Tues
day. Professor Sweetser spoke to eighty
members of the Portland Business Wo
men’s club as part of the lecture cam
paign for flow'er preservation that is be
ing carried on by the University exten
sion division. Four sections of the Lin
coln high school botany class were ad
dressed also last week. The extension
division has dated Professor Sweetser
for next week in some southern Oregon
towns, and later he will speak to other
organizations in Portland.
Little printed cards bearing pictures'
of shrub blossoms are used to get names
of persons who care to join a society,
the object of which will be the protec
tion and spreading of native flowering
plants. Professor Sweetser hopes to ef
dect the organization in April.
Milk for Breakfast, Milk for Lunch,
Milk for Dinner, Daily; Five
Meals Insisted On.
How long will one remain slender if
one consumes six glasses of milk, three
luncheons, dinner and breakfast, all in
one day? This menu which has been
planned for underweight girls and
worked out in concrete form by girls in
the food economics classes, is on exhib
ition in Alary Spiller hall.
According to this menu, the girl who
is of insufficient avoirdupois will start
the day with a substantial breakfast,
consisting of cereal, toast, fruit, an egg
and of course one of the six glasses of
milk. The next meal is the mid-morn
ing luncheon which accounts for an
other glass of milk, tho noon luncheon is
a substantial meal and including another
glass of milk. Xext comes the mid-aft
ernoon luncheon—-and another glass of I
milk. Then before retiring tile too- |
slender maid must drink a glass of milk. ]
These menus have been planned ac
cording to the necessary number of cal
Patronize Emerald Advertisers.

Interesting Curios to Deck
Women’s Structure.
Mrs. George T. Gerlinger. the only
woman member of the board of regents,
who is personally supervising the furn
ishing of the new women's building, plans
to have as many articles of educational
value as possible. Mrs. Gerlinger has
friends and curio dealers in San Fran
, cisco, Victoria. • B. C.. and in Portland,
looking for suitable articles in the way
of furnishings.
In the main hall there will be an ex
act duplicate of a refectory table. These j
tables, which correspond in purpose to [
our dining room tables, were used in j
, monasteries by the monks. Tins one ^
which is six and one-half feet long, and j
thirty-three inches wide, was purchased)
in Victoria. A long board, much worn,
'■serving as a foot-rest, makes up a part
of the table. It is said that these.foot
rests were necessary because of the
damp floors in the refectory rooms.
Four Canton jars with electric light
fixtures of copper attached to the brim,
will be placed on the table. These two
pairs of vases are exceptionally beau
tiful and will have flame-colored lamp
shades. There will also be a Russian
Samovar, for the making of tea, on the
table. The samovar is a grift from Mrs.
P. L. Campbell.
A large oval embossed copper tray
completes the furnishings for this table.
The tray came originally from India, was
brought to England, and later bought by
Miss 'Marker, a dealer in antiques. The
tray is very finely wrought and is unique.
It is a gift from the girls of Hendricks
The other rooms are to be furnished
along similar lines. Mrs. Gerlinger is
on the campus frequently, studying the
building and making suggestions as to
its furnishings.
Banquet Maroh 9th to Include all Who
Belong at That Time.
Girls who are not members of the
Y. W. C. A. are urged to join the as
sociation as soon as possible so that
they will be sure to be included in the
annual banquet which will be held at the
Hotel Osburn, March 9th. This drive
might be referred to as a second-term
drive for membership, according to Miss
pinsdale, secretary of the organization.
Every girl on the campus is eligible
for membership and is asked to join.
The cabinet is going to try to reach
pirls not already members, but they
would appreciate it if the girls would
just stop in at the Bungalow sometime
and hand in their names.
Decorations and Booms Chosen For
Dances in Women’s Gymnasium.
A tour of the women’s building to de
cide which rooms, and what form of dec
orations may be used for parties to be
held there, was made recently by Dean
Elizabeth Fox. Miss Mabel I,. Cummings,
of the department of physical education.
Mrs. Edna Batson. Professor and Mrs.
\V. E. Milne, II. Snook from the depart
ment of buildings and grounds, and rep
resentatives from the men's and women’s
Oregon clubs.
The policy will lie adopted of having
a minimum amount of decorations and
of using nothing which will require the
driving of tacks or nails. Vases of greens
and flowers will be the principal decora
tive form.
