Dr. Weatherford Is Coming.
Here is what "Dad Elliot" the form
er football champion of Northwestern
University, has to say of Dr. W. D.
Weatherford: "There are few men in
this country who know college life and
the problems of college men as well as
Dr. W. D. Weatherford. He has the
universal respect of students and faculty
alike; is broad in his sympathies; mag
netic, forceful, logical and practical in
his addresses; a statesman in his voca
tion and absolutely fair and reasonable
in his arguments." Dr. Weatherford
will speak to OAC men at the college
on Wednesday, May 12 at 7 p. m. He
comes under the auspices of the Y. M.
C. A.
U. of O. Students
Declare for OAC
Yesterday morniner the student bodv
of the U. of O. met at Eueene and a
resolution condemning the attempt of
the normal friends in Southern Oregon
to invoke the referendum on the annrn.
. A
priation for the ' Oregon Agricultural
College was unanimously passed. The
proposal of this resolution was met
with a lond burst of applause.
This expression of friendship on the
part of the students of the sister col
lege, following as it does the generous
action of the alumni, and also the
proffered aid of the Eugene Chamber of
Commerce, is particularly gratifying to
every person in Corvallis and especially
to the faculty and students at OAC as
it shows the kindly feeling which exists
at Eugene for the college here and " it
will do more than all else to brine- the
two great state institutions into closer
harmony. . . i
Fate of the Normals to be Discussed in
Salem Saturday.
Governor Benson has issued a call for
a meeting of the board of normal school
regents to be held in the capitol May 8
tor the purpose of determining the fu
ture policy of the board in regard to
the normal school' question. The three
noMnal schools, Monmouth, ' Ashland
and Weston are now operatinff as state
institutions by private subscriptions
until the end of the school year, the
board having granted this lease of, life
at the February 24 meeting, after hav
ing adopted a resolution declaring them
closed from that date.
What the policy of the board wSll be
at the May meeting is orily a. matter of
conjecture, but judging from the atti
tude of the members at the -previous
meeting the schools wifl be compelled
to operate as private institutions under
lease from the state. Since the board
receives its financial 'support from the
maintenance fund of the normal schools
and the legislature failed to provide for
them at the last session, the board is
without funds to pay the expenses of
the members in attendance upon meet
ings and they will respond to the call
at their own .expense. Their attend
ance, however, is not obligatory.
Wouldn't Return -East
A party of Illinois investors
recently clubbed together and
sent one of their number, who
had visited Oregon during the
Lewis & Clark Exposition, for a
trip through, the state. In speak
ing of his second trip out here
this gentleman said he had
found . Oregon people much
changed. At that time they
were intensely conservative, to
day they are enthusiastic ontim-
istic, and unanimously predict a
great future. In fact, many of
the communities are growing so
rapicuy tnat tney imagine they
have all the growth, but -those
who have seen the new oreharrls
the substantial farm houses and
other improvements takingplace
everywhere, knew that the next
decade will see record-breaking
advancement along every line.
Asked if he was satisfied, he re
plied :' "I wouldn't return -to
Illinois', jbut shall remain here to
receive my friends who are com
ing in parties of three, five and
even ten."
