55 Members of Union Petition
School of Architecture for
Course in Building.
The extension department of the
school of architecture of the University
la to establish next Friday its first
course in outside work, the result of a
petition from the Carpenters’ Union of
Portland for instruction in structural
building. The petition presented to the
school asks for work to toe given in
Portland in order that the c?rPp“*er"

Students Learn Simple Rudiments
At a meeting last Friday in the Ben
son Polytechnic school it was decided
that the courses should take up the two
subjects: Graphic statics and quantita
tive estimating. These two will give the
men an opportunity to learn the' s*m.f,
rudiments of construction of small budd
ings and an insight into the estimations
of their costs. “It will give the artisans
an opportunity to get hold of a line of
work that they have not before been
able to obtain and will, as & result, make
them able to compete with some of the
larger contractors on a small scale. They
had not been able to get any line of work
that will equip them for bettering their
conditions until they conceived the idea
of petitioning the University,” said
Professor Percy P. Adams yesterday.
Professor Adams will do most of the lec
turing in the new coarse. He is assistant
professor in the school af architecture.
Mr. Lawreno# Will Supplammt.
Mr. E. F. Lawrence, who is in charge
of the work, will supplement in the lec
tures. Mr. Lawrence has for some time
been considering the establishment of
an extension course in the school of ar
chitecture, but it was not until this pe
tition came before him that the course
was decided upon.
“The men enrolled are eager to learn
nnd if it were not 'for their lack of
knowledge in mathematics it would bo
a comparatively easy thing to teach
them architecture. But with their lack of
mathematics, we can give them only the
most simple of courses nnd these can as
a result only take up the smaller build
ings and structures,” says Prof. Adams.
“In designing large buildings one must
know how t<» join together the timbers
thnt go to make up the building. These
men, knowing ns little ns they do about
mathematics, will be at a disadvantage
and can not do the big things that the
college graduate is able to undertake.
They can, however, after completing the
course thnt we propose to give them,
take up the smaller jobs of construction
and make a success of thorn. Such things
as small hujldings and •esidences will
become familiar to them through the
course nnd will enable them to go ahead
by themselves and contract nnd build,
thus making more money for themselves
than they have been able to do before.
55 Union Men Petition.
“There were fifi of the men who sign- J
ed the petition to take the work," con-‘
tinned I*rof. Adams, "and at a meeting
next Friday evening the time will be de
cided upon in which they will meet. In
all probability, the classes will meet
every two weeks, but it is barely possi
ble thnt they will meet every week. In
either case lectures will he arranged for
each meeting. It will not change my
schedule so very much and will not
necessitate the changing of any classes,
as 1 have every Friday afternoon clear."
Mr. Lawrence who i* at the hend of
the school of architecture is a member
of the Architectural club of Portland.
The club disbanded recently because of
the period of depression which has been
sweeping the state, but under the lead
of Mr. Lawrence has again been brought
to life and is now working In Portland.
Another Course Arranged.
A new course has been arranged with
this club by which they will be able to
get an extension in descriptive geome
try, which, according to Prof. Adams is
essential in architectural drafting. The
club will meet every Saturday afternoon.
The new course in this line of work
is all made out and is ready to be taken
up by Professor Lawrence at any time.
Professor Adams will lecture, also, at

Along the same line is the suggestion

States and the various South American
colleges, which would he the ideal train

that such a system could also include the
exchange of students from one school of
commerce in the United States to an

Freaideut Campbell's trip was one of
pleasure, chiefly on account of meeting
ao many former Oregon students, who
are attending eastern schools. In New
York, the ex-Oregon men gave a ban
quet in his behalf.
Condition* Aro Booming.
"Conditions are good in the east,”
said the president. “The chief trouble
is that many concerns are finding it hard
to get skilled labor, which is being ab
sorbed in the ammunition plants.
Preparedness Favored, But Not Drill.
“One matter which was of interest was
the concensus of opinion on things mili
tary in the colleges. Preparedness was
urged for the colleges, but not compul
sory drill. The opinion is general and
welbhased that a few weeks of drill is
sufficient, but that the important item
of preparedness is development of en
gineering and military tactics. Harvard
has established an elective course in tac
