BTAT,T.IS. OBEOOK, OCT. 17, 1803.
Tanner to Professor and the Answer -
A few days ago we found a young
chittim tree on our farm covered
with a peculiar white scale.
sent a piece of bark to OAC. En
closed is Prof. Cordleys reply: '
If it is any thine like as bad as
it's name it must be a holy terror.
Should your stray printer meet it
in a dark and lonely canyon behind
Alsea it may so hard with him.
George Armstrong. '
1 . Cprvallis, Oct., 9. 1903.
- Prof. Cordley's letter is as
follows: . -
Mr. George Armstrong,
The insect pest on Chittim
bark, which you sent, proves it to
be one of the scale insects known
as Chianaspis Salicis-lNigre. It is
v a somewhat common species of
scale insect, widely distributed in
the United States and Southern
Europe and occurs, as the name in
dicates, most abundantly upon wil
lows . It has also been reported on
poplars, dogwood, service berry and
several other species of trees; never
however upon Chittem bark until
last summer when. Prof. Lake found
it noon a single specimen in his
' journeys in the Cascades mountains.
Probably the only practical thing
to do to prevent the spread of this
pest, now that Chittem is becoming
so valuable, is to cut down and
burn such trees as are found to be
badly infested Of course it would
be possible to destroy the scale by
spraying the treeswith kerosene
emulsion or whale oil soap solution
but under present conditions this
probably would not be pracical.

SUES THE CITY.
For Ten Thousand Dollars Damages
. I- What a bad Sidewalk did for
. - ' Albany. .
The importance of keeping side
-walks in. good repair is frequently
emphasized, when walks are Wi
n-lapidated,- pedestrian-may afajay
time DreaK a 11m d, or sustain otoer
injuries. The result always makes
a good, case for damages against
the city. ' Albany is up against it in
such a suit now. E. A: Truelove,
a Southern Pacific bridge carpenter
injured himself on a bad walk in
Albany, March 29th, and he has
sued the city for $10,000 damages.
His complaint alleges that the
city of Albany "willfully, wrong-
iuny, uniawiuny, carelessly and
knowingly neglected to keep that
portion of the sidewalk on the east
side of Lyon street between Second
and Third streets in said city in re
- pair and allowed dangerous holes
to remain open in tbe-walk without
guards, barricades or lights,' It al
leges that on the night of March
29th, the plaintiff without fault or
negligence oh his part stepped into
a hole in the sidewalk mentioned
above and was ' forcibly thrown
down. That he thus received great
bodily injury. The complaint
states that because of . his accident
the plaintiff is incapacitated to do
manual labor, that he has been to
great expensejfor medical treat
ment, that he has suffered and still
suffers great pain and distress of
mind and body "all of which is. to
bis great damage in the sum of
$10,000." ' T . ,
The'case will come up for trial
at the fall term of the Linn county
To Close Today.
From three to four o'clock this,
Saturday afternoon, all Corvallis
business houses will close on ac
count of the game of football be
tween the OAC and the University
of Washington elevens to take
place on JOAC field. The determi
nation to do so is the result of an
agreement reached to that effect
yesterday morning. The business
men took the action at the request
of the student body at the college,
whose committee circulated an ar
ticle of agreement which no honse
refused to sign. The student body
requested publication of this notice
so that all who desire to make pnr
cnases or transact business ma y
have ample notification of business
places to close.

v E. P. GREFFOZL !
Corvallis, Oregon, October i7, i9u3
A football rally, the like pt
which was never before seen in Cor
vallis, occurred Thursday night. A
display of enthusiasm and , college
Spirit that bodes all manner of good
things for OAC was manifested in
a way that left no room for doubt
that it was genuine. Speaking of
the demonstration, Coach McFad
den said he had seen no display of
the kind to equal it since he .left
Stanford after a victorious athletic
season three years ago. .
The. demonstration was a faithful
duplication pf the usual political
outbursts in times of presidential
elections. , The student body at the
college convened in the Armory at
seven o'clock, and headed - by the
college band marched - down town
parading Main and other, streets,
assembling finally at the court
house. A vast number of towns
people followed them, and when
they all got there, the circuit court
room was far too small . to accomr
modate the crowd. All the seats
were occuored. the people stood in
the aisles, corridors and vestibules,
and the overflow of the huge crowd
extended into" the halls below and
out into the court house yard. It
has been a long time since so large
a crowd was in ; the . court house,
and none ever, there was more
noisy. Compared with the demon
stration, a similar rally of last year
was as a pigmy to a giant.
The exercises . comprised music
by the colleere band and addresses
by several citizens. - students - and
others. B. W. Johnson - was i
graceful and accomplished presid
ing othcer. .w. h,.- Yates made an
enthusiastic speech, that provoked
frequent rounds of applause.
and in a brief address, . Dr. Withy
combe inspired the young folks' to
explosions of enthusiasm. Coach
McFadden was another ot the
speakers and his remarks added
much to his deserved popularity,
A brief address was also made by
W. G Emery. After ; the regular
program was over, tnere were cans
for Captain Bert Pilkineton. Three
cheers and a tiger for him finally
brought the young man to the plat
form where he made a , brief - ad
dress. Roderic Nash was : also
called out, and he made a graceful
response. There were similar calls
for Root, Williams, Abraham,.: ;aS9
other inembers of thefojatball team,
but most of them, as they boys say,
took a, sneak." and escaped the or
deal. If the success of the rally
means anything, the OAC football
men have a fair wind and a smooth
sea before them. . No such college
spirit was ever , manifest before at
