EMPLOYED AN ARCHITECT.
And Adopted Plans for New School
Building Eight Room Plan v
The Corvaliis school board has
adopted plans and employed an
architect for the new school build
ing. The action was taken at a
meeting held Thursday evening.
At the meeting it was reported that
in a brief canvass one member of
the board had received assurance
that $5,000 of the school bonds
would be taken by ' private- parties
in Corvaliis at four : per cent. . The
assurance was secured without ef
fort, and the opinion was expressed
that all of the issue could be floated
at home on a four per cent basis.
Whenever the offer for the whole
issue is perfected, if it shall be, the
board is convinced that the state
will forego its principle of taking
the bonds for the s ate school fund
on a five per cent basis. An issue
of $35,000 of Astoria school bonds
other day at five per cent as re
quired by law.
The architect is Charles Ewart,
well known in Corvaliis. He was
the architect of the present school
building, He has prepared plans,
and is to superintend the work of
construction. He is a thorough and
experienced man in his line.
The building is to be 75 by 83
feet, with two stories and basement.
The walls will be 41 feet high and
the top of the roof will be 63 ' feet
above the ground. It will be a few
feet narrower, east and west, and
about the same dimensions north
and south as the present building.
It will not be as high by about
three feet, - : . '
The floor plans : consist ' of " four
class rooms," 27x33, a teacher's
room, 10x15, and a hall 14 feet
wide with an octagonal, court. in
the center, 22x28, all on the first
floor. The arrangement of the sec.
ond floor is tobe the same, save that
for the teacher's room there will be
substituted a larger room for the
principal's office. There is a com
modious cloak room for each class
room. When finally completed
there will be' two flights of stairs
leading to the second story. The
class rooms will be one foot nar
rower and three feet shorter than
in the present building, .-and . will
accommodate 54 pupils each. For
the present, the exterior of the
building, and two rooms on . the
first floor are to be completed.
HE TOOK AN OUTING.
Tony Fontana Went out in Pomp, but
Returned in Humility.
Tony Foniana'became inocculat-
ed with the prevalent idea of hav
ing an outing.: So on . Monday he
hired a livery team to take him out
to the ranch of the Tortoras, fellow-
countrymen residing a few miles
west in the hills. His iriends were
very hospitable and bestowed every
attention upon their guest, but
somehow Tony was not satisfied.
Nobody knows what caused his
uneasiness, but he was in the same
frame of mind as the sporting Jew
who went to . heaven and became
morose because he had no chance
to gamble,' St.' Peter wished to
mase inings pleasant tor tne man
ana aectaea to give him a round
trip pass to Satan's dominions
where, he thought, his friend might
satisfy : his desire and return to
heaven and be content for a time,
The Jew departed in .high spirits,'
but when he arrived at his destina
tion he found he hadn't a stake
with which to begin business. Here
was disappointment aeain r but -his
heart was made glad, upon finding t
a, man wno was wining to purcnase
his return pass to heaven. "So it
seemed with Tony. He- evidently
preferred . the - freedom of one
place to the restraint of the other,
for the morning following his arri
val at Tortora's he fined out for
town afoot, reaching Corvaliis about
noon, dusty, sunburned, weary and
footsore. .Tony declares that the"
pleasures of outing are wholely a

Change Takes Effect Tonight. -
.Beginning tonight, the Corvaliis

ness men in the early closing move
ment. The closing hour , in the
past has been 7:30 p. m. The re
quirements of the department are

the rule, the local office has been
closed regularly at 7530. Former
ly, they Tiept open as late as eight

The change to the earlier closing

ical cessation of business in the ev
ening, and the condition has extend
ed to the postoffice. After "' six
o'clock in : the evening there are
but few applications at the delivery
