The appointment of nine activity com-,

Carlton Savage, student body president,
and prospective members of these com

activity committees are a feature of stu

Committees to be appointed include oni
for each of the following student activi
ties: Football, track, basketball, base
ball. minor athletics, women’s afldeticiy
forensics, publications and musical orga
nizations. The constitution provides for
a student majority on each committee
with no other stipulation for the number
to be appointed. One member of the
faculty will be appointed on each com
mittee and one alumni member on each
committee. This would make a minimum
of two student members on each com

fore June 1. “We hope that a number
of recommendations will be made to us
before we appoint the members of these
committees,” said Savage in describing
the manner in which the personnel of
the committees will be selected. “It
would certainly aid us in our selections
if several students would recommend
certain friends whom they think would
serve well on any of these committees.
Should any students wish to make any
such suggestions, either Lyle Bartholo
mew or myself would be glad to receive
them for consideration before Thursday
The duties of the committees as out
lined in the new constitution are as fol
lows: “The activity committee shall
safeguard and promote the interests of
the student activity which they repre
sent; shall make recommendations to. the
Executive Council regarding matters of
policy; and shall submit estimates for
the budget for their respective activities
to the finance committee.”
Since the activity committees form an
integral part of the budget system which
will be used for the first time next year,
membership on these committees is con
sidered quite important. The members
will assume their new duties on June 4.

Radiators Run Full Tilt;
Journalism Shack Hot As
With the sudden advent of summer
weather, journalism and students are
leading the way to the cool waters of
the millraee. In the words of a well
known advertiser, “there’s a reason.
The journalism shack, the reporter had
little difficulty in ascertaining, is ^equip
ped with a most cantankerously “heat
ing” system. On those dark, chilly days
of the winter and spring, do you suppose
those radiators gave forth of their
warmth to the * chilled young Horace
Greeks? Thev did not. On those days
the heat all went, under the peculiar sys
tem in effect, to the warmer buildings
on the campus.

ists a chance to keep their heads cool
and their collars clean? If you think so.

writing is in session and listen to the

into this campus inferno.
But why. the reporter asked of a per
spiring inmate of the superhheated shack,
does not someone turn off the radiators!
Only because, the reporter was informed,
that makes no difference; for men may
come and men may go, but the steam
pours in regardless.
The architects fixed the windows so
that they will not open, the steamfitters

Balm of Gilead Not Confined
to Bible Alone; Several of
Them Found on Campus
(Editor’s Note—This is the first of
two articles on the tilings we see on the
campus every day and do not recognize.)
, (By Jean Strachan.)
Some people know a lot about slmibs
and trees, and others don’t know so
much. Miss Ethel I. Sanborn knows a
lot. Of course, everyone knows that the
big spreading trees beside the library
are maples; and that the row in front of
the administration building—those that
have so many dry pods hanging, and
jaren’t fully leaved out—are black lo
custs; and almost everyone knows that
the row of smaller trees that runs in the
■parking all the way down to Kincaid
street from Friendly hall, are catalpas.
Both the locusts and catalpas have
lovely white blossoms, those of the locust
being so aggressively fragrant that they
give you hay fever if you don’t watch
Another flowering tree on the campus j
is the mw) There is one in bloom now
on the President's lawn. Its blossoms
are a very deep pink, and it is the only
flowering tree in the clump in front of
the house, so you couldn’t miss it. Then,
there is another member of the haw fam
ily growing at the foot of the long walk
from Deady to Twelfth street. There
are twin haws there, one on each sole
of the plot between the two arms of the
walk. These haws are not yet in flower,
but they are full of promise.
Among the flowering trees, also, may
be mentioned the mountain ash. which is
in bloom now, in the open space south of
Deady. In the fall, it will have flat
bunches of red berries.
East of the mountain ash. grows a trim
little tree which looks very unpreten
tious. But it is a pitcher leaved birch, a
pedigreed tree from the Bong Island bo
tanical gardens. Its leaves are divided
like rose leaves, and the end one should
have had its edges grown together to
form little pitchers. Miss Sanborn said
sslio once had to make a detailed dia
gram of the tree, showing every branch
and every leaf, and indicating whether
or not the tree was producing pitchers
true to type, so that a report could be
made to the botanical gardens.
The reporter didn't know that balm of
Gilead was anything outside the Bible,
but it is—it’s a tree—in fact, it's several
trees. Four or five of them grow on the
northwest, corner of the campus—down
where the lawn isn’t mowed. Balm of
Gilead is commonly called balsam pop
lar. If you nre anything of a tree fan
cier. of course you admire those every
time you go to the corner drug store.
If you should come up from the corner
store, and should take the first path to
your right., and should follow it to Deady,
you'd notice that there is a row of dainty,
rather small trees with white trunks, on
the right of the driveway. Those nre
white hirch. The reporter’s connotation
of birch is-—well, never mind.
That abbreviated tree, near the north
west corner of Deady, is a cherry laurel,
(primus earoliniann), a member of the
rose. One cold winter it was frozen, and
it has never looked like anything since.
(Moral—don’t get frozen.) The tall tree
beside primus—the one that has shed all
vthe flanged seed pods in the grass—is an
If you go along the path toward \ d
lard, and look to your right, you’ll see a
large well-shaped tree with round balls
like nuts hanging from string-like stems.
That is platanus orientals, or oriental
plane tree. The American platanus is
commonly called sycamore or button
wood. Sometimes this tree with the odd
seed pods is called exotic maple.
Now. if you’ll go back to the path
there, and go along a little way, you’ll
come to two trees of European, or Eng
lish oak. They are trim looking trees
with fresh green leaves. In the fall, the

Markham Inspired to Poetry
by Beauty of Dosch Statue
“Exaltation!” Thq word expresses,
the comment of Edwin Markham, the
poet, when his attention was called, on
his recent visit here, to “The New
Earth,” statue by Roswell Dosch. “Yes.
I like it—I’d like to write you a poem
about it.” the great poet said to Mrs.
I’. L. Campbell, who told him something
about the ideals of the young sculptor.
Itoswell Dosch put into the face and
figure of “The New Earth” his eoncep-j
tion of the new democracy that was to
come out of the war. which he hated for
its greed and selfishness. The statue
represents the figure of a young man
who has broken the fetters that bound
his hands, and has risen to full height
with face upturned and alight with re
newed hope, strength, and life. Roswell
Dosch was a member of the I'niversity
art department when lie made the statue
He died soon after its completion.
“May I have a photograph of it?”
asked Edwin Markham. “The idea is the
same as I have put into about 20 of my
poems, and I’d like to write one about
it.” Mrs. Campbell assured the poet
that she would send him a photograph
of the little statue.
It was a curious coincidence that only
a few minutes after his admiration of
the Dosch statue, Edwin Markham ex
pressed his feeling for the democracy of
th(* campus in much the same terms that
the young sculptor used on the day of
his departure for government service.
An extract from Mr. Dosch’s message
follows: “The longer I stay at Oregon
the more I want to stay. Each new day
is an opportunity for me: a demonstra
tion to me that by unselfishness and
ju.stieio a human democracy can he
worked out. and only on these principles
I feel it through every pulse of the TTni
versity; therefore. I long to stay, that I
may take some part of it into my own
Said Edwin Markham: “A wonderful
democracy is here. I have visited many
universities, but I have never before had
this feeling on a campus. It is that
bioad. fine democracy founded on the
brotherhood of man.” The poet went on
to say that he liked the friendly mixing
of faculty and students. There was no
standing off stiffly on the part of pro
fessors. ho said.
“I think,” he added, “that it may be due
to the democratic spirit of your presi
dent and—to you.” he finished, turning
to Mrs. Campbell with his gracious
Chi Psi Is Humbled By 33-2
Hivalinn the huge scores made by the
women in their doughnut baseball league,
the Friendly hall sluggers swatted the
sphere over the lot for a total of 33
tallies in a contest with the Chi Psi nine
yesterday afternoon in the second of
the sandlot series. The Chi Psi team
was unable to connect with the horsehide,
and succeeded in forcing but two men
over tin* home plate.
Just how many runs might have been
registered is a matter, of conjecture, for
the game was called after the fifth in
ning. Every man but one (all names
withheld) on the Friendly team had
three scores chalked up to their credit,
while one had six. Twice during the
game IS men came to bat in a single
inning. Darkness put an end to Du
play, spoiling all chances of running up
what might have been a record score.
The lineups follow:

GEORGE HUG REFUSES <
MANAGERIAL POSITION <
George \V. Hug. superintendent
of Salem public schools, this after
noon declined the position of grad
uate manager of athletics, tendered
him by the University of Oregon
several days ago. and announced
that he will remain as head of the
local school system next year.
A reluctance to terminate his
activities in educational work, in
which he has been engaged for many
years, was given by Mr. Hug as
his reason for refusing to go to
the Eugene school which, it is un
derstood, would offer him far more
money than he will receive in Sa
lem. (Salem Capitol-Jourual,
Both tho Associated and United
press services carried word of Mr.
ling's refusal last night, though his
official rejection has not been
received here. Pending this, no
action toward obtaining the services
of a graduate manager will be taken
by the athletic council.

Polished Program Scheduled
For Home Appearance.
The University orchestra will give
its first home concert in the Eugene the
ater on Friday evening, June 3.
This will be the climax of the most
active season through which the organi
zation has ever passed. Practically nine
months of hard work on the part of Ilex
Underwood, the director, and the orches

year mounted to 35, should go to make
the coming concert the best ever given
by the organization.

for the most part the same as that used
on the spring tour in Southern Oregon.
In all the towns in which concerts were
given great enthusiasm was shown by
the audiences. The whole of the pro

worked out in such n way ns to give a

idea being to please everyone. Comment
