.BOUGHT DILLER BLOCK,
School Board Accepts Option Will
New Building be Eight or Four V v
' .'. Room Now.
Whether to build the exterior of
an eight room school building,
leaving the interior to be complet
ed as required or whether to build
a four room building "with most of
the interior "complete now, is the
problem with which the Corvallis
school board' is wrestling".
Charles Ewart, the well known ar
chitect, who was architect and su
perintendent of the present school
building, has prepared plans, and
is now figuring " out estimates on
Each building contemplates a
two story building with basement
of stone - If the eight room exter
ior is built, it is the plan to build
only the lower portion of the base
ment of stone now, using wooden
pillars and rustic until such a time
hereafter as funds shall be avaik
able to fill in the balance of the
basement wih stone. If the four
room proposition is adopted, it
will be so constructed now as to be
only , a portion of a completed eight
room building. , .
In the. case of either building, it
is the purpose to build smaller
rooms than those in the present
school building, each of which was
designed for sixty pupils. It is the
board's idea that not more than
forty pupils can be properly served
by one teacher, and it is on that
idea that the new rooms are, to be
designed. TJach room will there
fore be correspondingly smaller
than the present rooms. V '-,
If a four room plan is adopted,
it is not the purpose to " complete
all of them at this time, but only
so many as is necessary ta meet re
quirements ; perhaps two. -.
One fact unfavorable to the four
room plan is, that the foundation
for an eight room exterior will eost
proportionately much, less ; because
one complete side of the basement
of a four room plan will be useless
when the time comes to - increase
thestructure to eight rooms. The
cost of that one side can be saved
now by building an eight room ex
terior, arid v.' completing "only so
many rooms as may be required.
' On the other hand, the ' natural
deterioration that must take place
in anf eight room exterior be
before the eight rooms-shall l$e
needed in Corvallis, would seem to
more than make up the difference.
If the walls of an eight room ex
terior'areto stand' six, or eight
years before the necessity shall
arise for the eight rooms, there will
be a considerable loss by reason of
the lapse of time and such destruc
tion as naturally comes to an un
The question of the adoption of
either plan will be largely - settled
by the item of cost, all of which de
pends much on what the architects
iestimates and figures will show.
Mr. Ewart is one' of the best and
most experienced architects inv the
Northwest and his estimates are
certain to, be reliable.
- At a meeting Wednesday even
ing." the board accepted the option
on the Diller block at the price of
$3000, and instructed the school
clerk to notify the owners of the
property that the board was ready

Telephone Communication With the
Wrong man' did it. ; ,.
v The telephone gets people into
queer positions at times or perhaps
it would be more correct to say
that people get themselves into odd
situations by ; means of the tele
phone. The former . expression is
more common, but it is because of
the inherent disposition of manto fix !
blame for the result of his own frailties,-
upon somebody or something
else." -That is why Bert Sharp half
blames the telephone system for
breaking up an advantageous horse
trade for him. ' . ' -
George Cauthorn of Linn county
was in Corvallis Thursday with a
trading horse. He proposed a trade
with Bert for a young bay horse
owned by the latter. Bert asked
$20 to boot, but at that time Cauth
orn thought he could not pay that
amount, and the next morning
found him in Albany. 1 By that
time he had decided to pay the dif
ference asked by Bert.
Bert's horse wasn't very well,
but he wasnt sick enough to show
it not sick enough to hurt, or the
owner wouldn't have listened to a
proposition to trade. Still Thurs
day morning he left a telephone
call for Dr. Withycombe, veterni
ary at the college. Presently the
brick stable telephone rang for Bert
who opened the conversation by an
swering: ' ' .
"Hello!" (supposing that he was
talking to Dr. Withycombe, but in
reality addressing Mr. Cauthorn.)
"Hello! This is Sharp is it?"
"Yes. Say," said -Bert, "lhat
youg bay horse of mine ain't
"Oh! Your young bay horse is
pretty sick is he?" responded the
man at the other end of the line.
"No, not awful sick, but I don't
know what ails him. He ain't just
; "Well, you are very good to let
me know. I was just about to tell
you that I was coming over to
make th'at trade we were talking
about yesterday, but I guess I'll
wait till your horse gets well.
