We consider the bifurcation problem
 $-u''\left(t \right) = \lambda \left(u\left(t \right)+g\left(u\left(t \right) \right) \right),\;u\left(t \right)>0,\;\;t\in I: = \left(-1, 1 \right),\;\; u\left(\pm 1 \right) = 0,$
where
 $g(u) ∈ C^1(\mathbb{R})$
is a periodic function with period 2π and
 $λ > 0$
is a bifurcation parameter. It is known that, under the appropriate conditions on $g$, $λ$ is parameterized by the maximum norm
 $α = \Vert u_λ\Vert_∞$
of the solution
 $u_λ$
associated with
 $λ$
and is written as
 $λ = λ(α)$
. If
 $g(u)$
is periodic, then it is natural to expect that
 $λ(α)$
is also oscillatory for
 $α \gg 1$
. We give a simple condition of
 $g(u)$
, by which we can easily check whether
 $λ(α)$
is oscillatory and intersects the line
 $λ = π^2/4$
infinitely many times for
 $\alpha \gg 1$
or not.
