Story of How Henry Villard
Saved University Recalled
How the University "was saved
from disaster by Henry Villard is
recalled to the minds of old timers
by the coming visit of his son, who
is to address an assembly here
March 6. After reading of the
University’s difficulty, the elder
Villard, railroad builder and ex
war correspondent, telegraphed a
$7000 check from New York to
Mathew P. Deady, then president
of the board of regents.
Deady hall, the only building of
the University, was to have been
sold and the deed taken from the
state to pay for indebtedness
against it. In 1876 Deady hall had
been completed and deeded to the
state of Oregon by the Union Uni
versity association, which founded
the University. The $7000 debt
that remained against it could not
be met by the association, and
suit for this amount wras brought
against the University. The su
preme court decreed that the deed
should be taken from the state
and the property offered for sale
It was the account of this actior
which Villard read.
Henry Villard’s gifts to the Uni
versity total $61,000 and the storj
of these gifts was found in the or
iginal documents concerning the
transactions and also in the ac
counts written by J. J. Walton, for
33 years secretary of the board of
The paucity of material and lim
ited resources with which the de
partments carried on their work
impressed Mr. Villard when he
visited the University in 1881 and
prompted him to bestow addition
al gifts. The following letter from
the railroad builder to the board of
regents will reveal the nature of
the gifts.
Portland, Ore.
Oct. 25,1881.
“To the Board of Regents of the
Oregon State University,

promise of pecuniary aid made at
our conference yesterday, as fol

Hope Rises for
Infirmary and
Library Here
Work Depends on Fund
Construction to Sturt if Congress
Appropriates Money for
PWA Activities
A new library and a new in
firmary for the University of Ore
gon are two of the projects which
have been approved by the Public
Works administration, according
to Dr. James H. Gilbert, dean of
the college of social science and
member of the state PWA advis
ory board which met in Portland
Thursday. Work will be started if
and when federal funds become
available, assured Gilbert yester
The advisory board met with
Col. Henry M. Waite, deputy ad
ministrator of the PWA, who de
clared that when money was
available, projects would be start
ed in accordance with preference
expressed by the state advisory
board, and since the board places
University projects at the top of
the list, final approval of these
two projects is believed to be as
As soon as congress appropri
ates funds for PWA projects,
money for the library and infirm
ary will be apportioned and prep
aration of contracts will get under
way. Since the government grants
only 30 per cent of the total cost
of the buildings, a bond issue must
be floated to cover the remainder
of the construction outlay, and
bids for the jobs will be called for
immediately the issue has been
Costs for the library will ap
proximately amount to $350,000
and for the infirmary, $100,000.
Considerable alleviation of local
unemployment would be one re
sult of the construction of these
buildings, and the Eugene cham
ber of commerce has expressed its
satisfaction over the approval of
the projects in Washington.
Freshman Fights
Fires for Living
Some students earn room and
board by stoking furnaces or
washing dishes, but nothing so
tame as that would suit Keith Mc
Milan, freshman pre-medic from
Rainier. He fights fires for a liv
ing and lives at the fire house
with the rest of the firemen where
he may be found outside class
hours studying or playing crib
bage with the chief.
“There aren’t a great many fires
in Eugene,” McMilan said, "but at
that there are more than there are
in Ranier and I like to be on hand
when they happen.”
Chief W. E. Nusbaum said he
believed a knowledge of fire con
trol should be useful to a young
medic and hoped that McMilan
would be as good a doctor as he is
a fireman.
Foetry lechnique
Displayed by Moll
A discussion of the technique of
poetry and the problem of its ap
preciation was the subject of a
lecture given last night by Pro
fessor Ernest G. Moll of the Eng
lish department, in Villard hall.
Dividing the address into four
parts, the word in poetry, imagin
ation, craftsmanship and the
problem of appreciation, Moll pre
sented his interpretation of poetry
and illustrated his points with se
lections from poetic works.
‘‘The reader of poetry must have
a genuine interest in it and an abil
ity to understand it,” said Moll.
“As Coleridge has said, 'We receive
but what we give,’ in our inter
course with poetry. A knowledge
of technique is necessary to the
understanding of poetry.”

The program, one of the A. S.
U. O. series, is the most preten
tious ever attempted by the band.
It is being attempted on the
strength of the quality of the mu
sicians comprising the group.
Fugue Featured
The Toccata and Fugue in C
major by Bach is to be the fea
tured number of the concert. The
selection was originally composed
for the organ and has been ar
ranged in special manuscript form
for the band.
The program follows:
I Triumphal March from Suite,
Sigurd the Crusader. Grieg
II Toccata and Fugue in C
major . Bach
III Scherzo from Sonata, Op.
26 . Beethoven
IV Isolde’s Love-Death, from
Tristan and Isolde.Wagner
V Overture to "Peter Schmoll”
. Weber
Selection Difficult
Bach fugues are generally con
sidered too difficult for band or
orchestra presentation, being
mostly written for the organ or
the well-tempered clavicord. Few
bands have attempted them. Two,
which have are the Goldman band
and the Carleton college band.
According to John Stehn, direc
tor of the University band, this
is the first time this number has
been played by any band west of
the Mississippi.
The next and last A. S. U. O.
concert for the winter term will
be given Sunday, March 4, in Mc
Arthur court when the Polyphonic
choir will appear.

the perplexing problems growing

The first named opinion, sub

clear that all amendments put in

Marian Miller Gives Points
On Women’s Writing Fields
Dear Marian Miller: “How can
I be popular?” “I’m in love with
a man 20 years my senior," “My
secret sorrow gave me the go-by,”
“I’m a lonely widow,” "Nobody
loves me, everybody hates me,”
“I want to go into the movies(”
"My father won’t let me go out
with boys, or to any parties,"
“What should a nice young girl
know,”—Oh, Marian Miller, what
shall I do ?
One thousand letters with such
questions a month, 12,000 a year,

Miss Miller learned her first les

meeting, but it turned out that
Charley had an important confer

“I wrote the story,” chuckled
Miss Miller, “but I didn’t know
