Attention of National Conserva
tion Congress for Last Week.
Dr. Bessey, who returned recently
from the fourth National Conservation
Congress at Indianapolis, 1b highly
elated with the results of this session.
The personnel included national and
state officers from all parts of the

to an open discussion of vital re
sources and the method of their con
servation. As chairman of the committee on
education, Dr Bessey made a complete
report on the pedagogical phase of the

the other four members, and contains
the folio Aing endorsements- David

Dr Bessey viewB his subject from
three different standpoints: work In
the community, work in the schools
and work through legislation The
keynote of his whole report is given
in his opening paragraph: "We must
provide for a propaganda of suggestion
and information, to be followed ulti
mately, when the public mind has been
adequately awakened, with plans for a
campaign of aggressive activity."

end in anything but honorable defeat
for one Bide or the other Prof. Con
dra and other professors decided that
the struggle between the two classes
should be organized Due to the vari

BeBBey proposed the name "Olyrnplca"
for the contest, which was adopted.

do in the management of the Olym
pics, but are supposed to follow tho
instructions of their upper classmen.
