Bulletin Tells of Work.
A bulletin issued by the extension di
vision speaks of the correspondence stu
dents as follows: “If one were to take
a cross section of Oregon’s adult popula
tion it would be representative of the
body of correspondence students. They
range in age from the high school stu
dent to men and women well past middle
life. Their occupations and interests ave
ns varied as their ages, for they are
teaching, preaching, farming, herding
sheep, taking care of homes nnd raising
children, serving as clerks, stenograph
ers, engineers, and doing the many other
things that make up the life of Oregon
communities, but they are united in their
ambition to get the education that cir
cumstances have made impossible for
them to get in the regular way. Their
desire to get through correspondence
tourscs what they have missed in other
ways is well illustrated by the following
Jetter from a student who is doing splen
did work in English:
“I-am in 70th year. T have had to
work hard all my life nnd couldn’t get
an education. Now I'm having my chance.
T’m a fruit grower. i have had ten
children, seven of them are living. Three
are still in army service, but when they
come home they will be in the Agricult
ural College and the University.”

a very large extent in the past six
years, according to Professor .T. L. Whit

Six pears ago there were only about
700 students on the campus says Pro
fessor Whitman. All the buildings south
of Thirteenth street and the two west
of the library have been built since he
left. There are also minor improvements
which Professor Whitman noticed.
During his absence, Professor Whit
man has taught chemistry in the high
school at Pendleton and at Spokane Uni
versity. He was at Spokane when he
was asked to come here. With Mrs.
Whitman, he drove down from Spokane

of road that was in poor condition.

The model submitted to Mrs. Beck de
picts a portion of the garden of the
Sea-Foam Hotel at an ocean resort with
the towers of the hotel and other beach
concessions such as roller coasters and
bathers’ paradise in the background. The
hotel towers are artistically medieval in
design, one large one in the center and
a smaller one on each side. In front of
the stage through which one can see
more of the hotel and shrubbery of
varying colors. Over the walls hang
decorative weeping willow trees. The
foreground is brightened up by yellow
flowers. Mrs. Beck says that the scene
is to be made realistic by bathers and
a balloon man. The scenery will be
painted by the high school pupils.
The cast for the operetta is full and
rehearsals are progressing. The make
up of the play is such that few of the
characters stand out, however, the work
of the youngest member of the cast,
Wilfred Moore, a seventh grade pupil
is noticeable, Mrs. Beck said. He. is
eleven years old and sings soprano.

WRECK DELAYS PARSONS
No Vesper Address Given; Next Service
To Be Held After Easter.
Prof. Parson, who was to give the
vesper talk here on Sunday, was de
layed by a train wreck near Harrisburg
and could not reach a telephone in order
to notify the University in time.
Xo vesper services will be given on
the campus in March because of a series
of organ recitals to be given by Mr.
Evans at the Methodist church from
now until Easter. There will also be a
series of special vesper services at the
Presbyterian church and because of
these facts it is considered inadvisable to
hold services on the campus.
