“ ‘Asilomar’ is the name of the
new estate of 30 acres which the Y.
W. C. A. of California, Nevada and
Arizona now possess for a conference
place,” said Miss Guppy, Monday aft
ernoon, in a talk before the Y. W.
C. A. meeting. Miss Guppy was in
California this summer and was
present at the opening of “Asilo
mar” by the Y. W. C. A. conference
on August 7.
“ ‘Asilomar,’ which is Spanish for
‘Retreat for Rest,’ is near Pacific
Grove and not far from old Monte
rey. The 30 acres of land was given
by the Pacific Land Co. of Pacific
Grove, California. Mrs. Hearst, a
regent of the University of Califor
nia and a very good friend of the
Y. W. C. A. there, has helped to
raise $30,000 to use for buildings.
“In the center one sees a beautiful
building of the mission type. This
is the administration building. To
the left of it is another quite large1
building in which meetings, other
than those of the administration
building, are held. To the right of
the central building, on the way to
the sea which lies in front of ‘Asilo
mar,’ are many tents. These serve
as resting places for those people
who need rest and recuperation and
who find ‘Asilomar’ delightful.

“The opening really lasted three
days,” continued Miss Guppy, “but
there was one big day. The Pageant
and noted speakers made that day
important. The Pageant was writ
ten by Helen Thoburn, a former
Stanford student and daughter of
Prof. Thoburn there.. She is now in
terested in Y. W. C. A. work in New
York. This pageant represented Y.
W. C. A. work in all parts of the
“It has occurred to me,” conclud
ed Miss Guppy, “what a nice thing
it would be to send delegates from
‘Asilomar’ to ‘Gearhart’ and from
‘Gearhart’ to ‘Asilomar’ each year
for the interchange of ideas would be
so helpful. The Y. W. C. A. means
spirit as well as doing, for if we
have the spirit we will surely have
WERLEIN TAKES THE STUMP
University Buildings Declared to Be
Crying Need After Investigation.
Following an investigation of
building conditions at the University
of Oregon, J. E. Werlein, of Port
land, returned to the city yesterday
with the announcement that he plans
to take the stump in support of mea
sures providing new buildings for
the University, which are to be vot
ed upon by the people at the special
state election, November .
“I found,” said Mr. Werlein yes
terday, “that conditions are worse
than portrayed. As the ..guest of
students of the school I looked over
the campus and found that the
school is overcrowded. There has
not been any new construction at
the institution in six years and mauy
needed repairs have been sadly over
looked. No more meritorious mea
sures could be presented to the pub
lic than those providing for new
buildings for the institution.”
Mr. Werlein made the investiga
tion at the suggestion of several
clubs and fraternal orders which he

The outside of the building has
been so completed as to avoid any
suspicion of ostentation, leaning
rather to the severe Doric style.
But within no pains have been spared
to impress the students and profes

Furniture has not yet arrived for
the two office rooms and four class
rooms w-hich the building will con
