ng to John Vance, '59NR.
rail splitting, log rolling, match
splitting, two-man bucking, log
throw and chain "throwing," are
included he said.
Roll Tape Measure
"The terrm chain 'throwing'
might be confusing to someone
not in forestry because it actually
means the coiling and uncoiling of
a long steel. tape measure called
a chain," Vance explained.
"If it isn't done just right," he
continued, "you get something re-
sembling a bird's nest instead of
a neat coil of tape."
The conclave this year was spon-
sored by Michigan State and the
participants were housed in the
building of the Conservation
Training School at Proud Lake.
Weather Not Ideal
The weather, he continued, was
not ideal for this conclave. "Half
the day (Saturday) the events
were carried out in the rain."
The University's club placed
first in the dendrology, chopping
and two-man bucking, contests pnd
second in rail splitting. Hubert
Trefts, '58NR, and Richard E.
Martin, Grad., won the bucking
contest. Martin also won the chop-
ping and dendrology competitions.
"Dendrology," Vance explained,
"as far 'as the contest goes, means
that there are 20 trees tagged that
have to be identified."
In the Compass and Traverse
contest, the men are given a ; set
of compass bearings and distances
to pace off. "If you're right, you
stop }on a spot already chosen by
the committee," Vance. said. The
score is determined by the distance
