JOINT ORGANIZATION AIM
Statement Calls Attention to
Pledge. That Tollcy Here
after Calls for Working
More Closely
The establishment of closer co
operation and harmony between,
the University of Oregon and the
OreRon Agricultural college, and
the elimination of as much rivalry
as possible except In athletic cir
cles, were the main points pledged
in a resolution adopted by the
boards of regents of the two edu
cational institutions at a meeting
held here yesterday.
- The meeting was called by Gov
ernor Patterson and none of the
regents had any information as
to the purpose of the session until
they arrived at the capitol. All
of the regents, with one or two
exceptions, were in attendance.
Confine Competition
"Competition between the col
lege and the university,'" said Gov
ernor Patterson, in addressing the
regents, "should be confined strict
ly to athletic events. In all other
matters the best interests of the
student, the state as a whole, and
the taxpayer should be considered
first.
"By adopting a policy of cooper
ation and mutual ood will we can
hope to elevate the standards of
education, produce a better type of
citizen through our courses at the
schools, and promote a feeling of
better sportsmanship and more
thorough understanding between
the regents, the faculties, the stu-
c.ont bodied and the alumni
"Rivalry betwaa- those two
jjthools has been,, known to exist,
And while the -presidents and the
hoards of regents, are perhaps not

definite. steps have heretofore been
taken witfh the object in view of
eliminating it." .
Plan CloHer Cooperation
Regents of the two Institutions,
in a statement pfepafed at the
close of the meeting, declared - it
would hereafter b the policy of
the schools to work more closely
in matters relating to the stud
ents' welfare. '
"Each school will aid the other
with publicity,"- read" the state
ment, "and will endeavor to see
that the requirements of a student
are best served at the institution
he seeks to enter before he is
permitted to matriculate. Stud

It is as necessary to cherish the

"Liberty and Union," he said in

pressed in our constitution and

:J HUBBARD MEDAL
DARINti AIR PILOT ADMITTED
' TO SELECT CIRCLE
Presentation of National Geo
graphic Honor to Be Made
by Cool id ge
WASHINGTON, June 7. (AP)
Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh,
speeding ' home on the cruiser
Memphis, to receive the highest
honors ever accorded a private
cititen in his native land, was ad
mitted today to that select circle
of explorers of sea and air and
land who have been awarded the
Hubbard medal of the National
Geographiosociety.
This medal has been bestowed
only seven times, the most recent
recipient having been Commander
Richard Evelyn Byrd who receiv
ed it at the hands of President
Coolidge less than a year ago "for
his epochal achievement in first
reaching the North Pole by air
plane." Colonel Lindbergh's citation
probably will read for his epochal
achievement in first ilying an air
plane 1rom New York to Paris.
The actual presentation will be
some time in the future, and prob
ably by President Coolidge,
Besides Commander Byrd arid
Lindbergh, the only other 'recipi
ents of the medal have been Rear
Admiral Peary, discoverer 'of the
North Pole; Roald Amundsen,
Captain Robert A. Bartlett, Grove
Carl Gilbert, Sir Ernest H. Shack
elton and Vilhjalmar Stefansson.
Arriving here at noon Saturday
from Cherbourg, Colonel Lind
bergh will be greeted at the wharf
by the first man to span the At
lantic in a plane. Commander A.
C. Read, now commandant of the
Hampton Roads naval air station,
who in '1919, piloted the navy sea
plane NC-4 from New Foundland
to the Azores and thence to Port
ugal and England.
Commander Read was invited
to attend the navy yard ceremon
ies by the semi-official reception
committee, which also announced
that a special committee of-sen
ators and another of the members
of the house of representatives
also would be at the yard to wel
come -the -fliers. -' :

Whether municipally owned

which the utility is located is sub
ject to regulation by the public
service commission and the certi
ficate of public convenience and

of the City of McMinnville in ex
tending its electric lines into terri
tory claimed by the Yamhill
Electric corporation.
- The public service commission
declined to assure Juridictlon in
the controversy.
The Yamhill Electric company
sometime ago filed suit In the

service. The suit is now pending

Bowl" Empty
NEW ORLEANS, June 7. (By
AP:) Louisiana's "sugar bowl"
may be empty this year. When
reports of disaster from new floods
in Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois
reached Red Crorfs headquarters
here today, the weather bureau
issued a special, bulletin predict
ing that the fresh rise coming
down the Mississippi river would
prolong flood conditions in Louisi
ana until the latter part of July.
Prolongation of the inundation
in the Tensas and Atchafalaya ba
sins will mean that few if any
crops will be produced this sea
son on thousands of acres of rich
alluvial lands, much of which lies
in the. famous "sugar bowl" of
south central Louisiana. Relief
officials said it would impede re
habilitation and reconstruction,
which was beginning to get under
way.
Although on a much smaller
scale than the floods of April and
May, the - new inundations in the
upper-valley have started a sec
ond exodus of inhabitants of low
lands from which recent flood wat
ers had drained. The Red Cross
was Informed by field workers to
day that 2.000 persons will be
driven from the St. Francis river
basin. v f
Red Cross field workers said the
new floods were reinundating

MANY PROMINENT - CITIZENS
VISIT HISTORIC PLACE
Three High Schools Paid Tribute;
Special Meeting Planned
Saturday
A steady stream of cars poured
in and out of Champoeg park last
Sunday according to reports com
ing from there yesterday.
The procession began about 6
a. m., by some parties from Port
land driving in for ah early break
fast. During the day 783 .cars
visited the place. The number of
people brought in was estimated
at over 3000. The ideal weather
and the safety of the roads con
tributed. There were all day talks
and picnics.
Mrs. Jacob Kamm, daughter of
W. II. Gray, one of those partici
pating at Champoeg May 2, 1843,
honored the historic spot with her
first visit. With her were a niece
and a granddaughter of George
Abernethy who was the first gov
ernor elected under the provision
al form of government. There
were descendants of the Apple
gates, the Iooneys, the Matthieus,
the Meeks and others of the for
ties. ;
Champoeg park is becoming the
mecca of those in search of early
history. Writers, historians, col
lege professors and presidents,
high school students and those
wishing to refresh their memories
upon events of the long ago. They
all find something of interest, and
advise others to visit -the place.
J. B. Patterson, who lived in thi3
vicinity in the long ago, came
from California after an absence
of 45 years. Mrs. Jacob Kamm,
though backward about speaking
in public, was urged to speak of
her father, W. H. Gray, and the
information imparted haa. pever
appeared in public print. V
Last week the Yamhill high
school, the Newberg.high and the
Dayton high paid tribute to Cham
poeg and the pioneers of the for
ties by having picnics there. Next

BERLIN, June 7. (AP) Con

thusiastic spectators gathered in

It was a real welcome Tor the

the people of Berlin suffered a
great disappointment on Monday
morning when the plane was ex

greeting extended to the Ameri
cans when they arrived. Crowds
many times as large as had made
the pilgrimage on the previous
day' to the field spent all after
noon in picnic fashion and spirit,
scanning the sky for a glimpse of
the Columbia. The watchers
crowded the airdrome to its ca
pacity and lined up many rows
deep along the fence enclosing the
immense field.
Yesterday's anxiety gave place
to happy confidence, the drowsy
lassitude of those who had kept
virgil all night turned to Joyous

way to happy laughing faces. . j
