WILL CHANGE WHOLE CAMPUS
Big $100,000 Administra
tion Structure Together With
Additions and Changes in
Tangible action for the repairs to
the Dormitory, Deady Hall, Library
and Heating plant, for which $75,000
was appropriated by the 1913 legis
lature and sustained by the voters of
the state at the referendum election
last November, was taken this week
when bids were advertised for by L.
H. Johnson, University Steward. The
bids will bo opened by the Executive
Committee of the Board of Regents
on June 15 and the contract will
probably be 1st at that time.
The bids for the construction of
the $'100,000 Administration build
ing will be advertised for June 25
and the bids will be let about the
middle of July. Actual construction
is expected to take place shortly aft
er the bids are opened.
Largest Repairs for Library.
The largest repairs, in point of
cost, will be those made to the Libra
ry building, for which $30,000 has
been appropriated. Besides building
an addition on the west end of the
building, fireproof steel book stacks,
sufficient to accommodate 75,000
books, will be installed. The plans
for the book stacks have already
been decided upon.
On Deady Hall, the oldest building
on the campus, $10,000 will be ex
pended. The money will be used in
rearrangement of rooms and the in
stallation of laboratory equipment.
The installation of running hot and
cold water in every room will be the
feature of the improvements on the
Dormitory, for which $1 0,000 has
been assigned. An addition will also
be made on the west end in order
that more students may be accommo
Another $10,000 will be spent in
extending and otherwise improving
the University heating plant. Many
of the main conduits will be dug up
and repaired. These conduits are
now leaking, resulting in a great loss
of heat. New pipes will also be laid
to President Campbell’s residence
and to Mary Spiller Hall.
Will Prepare for Architecture.
The remaining $15,000 of the ap
propriations will be used In repair
ing and improving the University
power house in order that it may be
suited to the purposes of the new
Department of Architecture that is
to be opened next Fall.
Tentative plans for the Adminis
tration building have been drawn up
by W. C. Knighton, State Architect,
and will be submitted to the Board
of Regents for their approval or dis
approval at the June meeting.
According to these plans, the new
building will consist of two stories
and a basement.. The first floor will
be given over to a lecture hall, large
enough to accommodate 300 people,
the University Museum anti various
offices. The lecture hall will be sim
ilar to a small theatre. A full size
stage will be constructed, footlights
Installed and an orchestra pit built.
This room will be used as a lecture
hall and as a place for holding de
bates, class meetings and plays.
Now Building Will Have Class.
The entire second floor of the
building will be used by the admin
istration offices. The plans provide
for a lobby, 50 feet square, with the
different administration offices fac
ing it. On the west end will be lo
cated the private office of the presl

semester under Dr. E. S. Conklin.
Dr. Dollenbach has made especial

Dr. Conklin, is well fitted to teach
this course because of his research
and experimental work in this sub
The course in Applied Psychology
deals with the psychology of adver

purely from the psychologist’s point
of view with no attempt to deal with
the business side of it.

year be upder Dr. George Rebec, the
professor of philosophy, whose work
this year has been mainly with the

Consistent hitting and airtight
support figured conspicuously in
landing for the lemon yellow a
clear title to the college conference
rag of the Northwest for the season
The Oregon men have hit a pace
that is hard to beat and had they
been as perfect in the Washington
games that were plaved on the local'
campus as they are perfect now it is
pretty safe to say that they would
have gone through the season with
out a loss. But eight wins out of
ten games played is a record that will
likely stand in conference circles for
some years to come.
Itiglveo Gets Individual Honors.
Coach Bezdek's men have been
consistent in I itting when hits were
needed and almost any man on the
Oregon team has been responsible
for causing the downfall of opposing
pitchers but it remained for Skeet
Uigbee to eop almost all the individ
ual honors in the championship con
tests. The youngest Bigbee that
Oregon boasts of not only leads the
batting list but also has had more
passes issued to him, got more long
hits and stole more bases than any
other man on the Oregon nine. He
has also handled more chances than
any other infielder and made fewer
errors. The box scores indicate that
the diminutive Freshmmi is Coach

Motschenbacher has also made an
enviable record in the eight games
In which he has figured, for he has
batted fourth, very few stolen bases
have been made off him and he has
the only perfect fielding average In
the Oregon lineup.
The complete batting averages for
the conference games including the
last two with the Pullmanites have
been compiled by Bothwell Avlson
and are given below:
