Two Vacancies to Be Filled
fANNUAL SESSION HELD
Reports Read Show Chamber
At the first annual meeting of the
University of Oregon chamber of com
merce Friday night, the present officers
and directors of the organization were re
elected for the year of 1021-1922. Va
cancies will, however, be created later
in two instances by the graduation of
President Barney Garret and Mildred
Aumiller, secretary. These vacancies will
be filled by the board of directors in ac
cordance with the constitution of the
Officers’ and directors’ reports read
record the fact that the organization has
made great progress since its establish
ment three months ago. The University
chamber is now a member of the United
States Chamber of Commerce and is also
affiliated with the Oregon state cham
ber. A letter received from the national
chamber by the secretary of the Univer
sity chamber gives the organization on
this campus credit for being the first
student chamber of its kind in the United

During the spring vacation President
Garret, attended the short, course for
commercial club secretaries of the state
held on the campus and was elected a
director of the state association of com
mercial club secretaries.
Numerous inquiries concerning the
work of the University chamber have
been received not only from all parts of
Oregon, but also from many eastern
cities as well, thus showing the extent
of the interest taken in the activity of
the organization. The subjects on which
the chamber has been asked to advise
range all the way from requests as to
what, should constitute the work of a
chamber of commerce, to the best method
for organizing a municipal market. The
activities of the chamber will carry the
name of the University to over 1000
towns and cities of the United States this
The work of the employment and in
dustrial relations department, in finding
employment for the chamber members
was received with much satisfaction by
the students. Other departments ren

Dean Voices Appreciation.
Dean Bobbins spoke briefly in appreci
ation of the results accomplished by the
chamber this year. He also outlined the
work of the school of business adminis
tration. He stated that with the appar
ent passing of the apprenticeship sys
tem in industry, business is looking to
the schools of business administration
as n short cut, iu the preparation of men
to fill administrative and executive posi
tions. This is the specific work of the
school of business administration, not
the teaching of typing or book-keeping
but the training of men to meet the
problems of the business world. Dr. Rob
bins continued. He pointed out the value
of the University chamber of commerce
as an excellent training place for the
young men who will be active in the
work of his town or city. He stressed
the point that to be a successful business
man one must take an active interest in
the affairs of his community.
OREGON POET GIVES
(Continued from Page 1.)
, a matter of the form, because poetry
may be written in prose form. The test
of poetry is its universal appeal.
“The old will remain; it can never
(lie,” continued the poet, speaking with
his eyes closed again. “The rhythm and
sway of the first poetry is part of the
humun soul.” he said, and quoted a few
rhythmic lines. “But.” he resumed, “we’ll
take in the n*\v. Some poets will write
in one style, some in the other, and
some in both.”
When asked which of the free verse
writers lie considered best, his answer
was, “Amy Lowell, and right beside her
stands Carl Sandburg. Occasionally

“Do you get inspiration for the writing
of poetry in New York City?” the west
ern poet was asked.
“Oh, you see,” he laughed, “I took
it with me when I went there. I took it
from the hills that I love. Much poetry
comes from the meditation of former
things; it does not necessarily come from
present surroundings. I remember Cali
fornia and my beloved Oregon.”
“Are you u good Oregonian when you
are in California?” asked a listener,
who knew the poet had come to his birth
state through California, where he lived
from his fifth year through young man
“Well, now,” laughed the genial celeb
rity. “now I am in Oregon, and to me.”

“Why haven’t you come back to Oregon
before?” he was asked.
“Well.” counter-quizzed the fun-loving
gentleman, “have you ever been to see
your wonderful Crater Lake?”
“No, but I’m going—.”
“But have you been.” insisted the poet.
“No,” admitted the other.
“Well,” laughed Edwin "Markham, “that
is just the way I have done about, coming
to Oregon. I’ve always intended com
ing, but something always happened, and
I have put off my visit. But. I am com
ing again,” he promised.
This all happened after the poet had
been a guest at a banquet, had spoken
and read poetry an hour and a half to
an audience, and had attended a recep
tion. Upon the suggestion that the hour
was very late, and that 7 o’clock trains
to Portland had a way of leaving very
early in the morning, the 69 year old
poet-philosoplier said, “Sunset in the
morning of my day. I love tlie starry

gracious of manner, and have impressive
personalities like Edwin Markham.

Can You Save
Ten Dollars a Month?
EVERYONE who is earning a fair income
knows that he or she can save $10 a month,
even in these high cost of living days, and not
miss the amount laid by.
What would you gain by doing this simple
and easy thing ? What results would follow
which would make this systematic practice
worth while ?
Supposeing that you held back $10 from
your earnings each month and placed the
amount where it would earn for you at the rate
of 8 per cent a year, and re-invested that in
come from your accumulation semiannually ?
Do you realize that in 25 years you would have
acquired approximately $9,160 ?
Of this comfortable little fortune of $9,160
only $3,000 would represent the $10 laid by
each month. Over $6,000 would be the interest
or dividends 3^our money earned for you while
you were accumulating^.
Just plain, systematic saving and sound in
vesting are all you need to insure prosperity
and independence in the years to come.
