should apply to the head of his col
lege for this first appointment.
Then he should make application on
the customary blank to the secre
tary of the committee. Then, if
possible, he should appear in person

coming meeting will go to England

of the committee of selection. The
ether members are A. C. Newill,
member of the Portland school board
and president of the Oregon Civic

The forest service is allowed by
law to sell stumpage only from the
national forests. The purchaser of
timber has no cut-over problem,
since the government , retains title to
the land. Any legitimate use of the
land incident to the development of
the project is allowed at a nominal
consideration, . or for some . uses, free
of charge. ,
It should be understood that tim
ber is sold from the national forests
of Alaska only for immediate and
continuous operation, and that the
general policy or form of contract
does not permit the acquirement of
timber on a speculative basis.
