AT MEETING WRDNESDAY
. AFTERNOON OF BOARD
.1 - ' . . .
Purchase of Hog? Tract for Col
lege at a Cost of Six Thousand
n M - T i.: n . jx i t j
tr--Other Corvallis News,
The resignation of E. R Lake,
who has been professor of botany
and horticulture at the college for
the past six years was! present
ed at a meeting of the board of
regents of the Agri'ml tural College
Wednesday, afternoon." The resig
nation was accepted, and is to take
effect at the end of the current col
lege year. The executive commit
tee was authorized to select a suc
cessor. The action ot Prof. Lake is un
derstood to have come as a surprise
to both his friends and the mem
bers of the board, He is one of tbe
most energetic as well as one of the
most capable educators in his line
in the country, and the severing
of his connection with the college
is much regretted by his friends.
It is understood that at present,
Prof. Lake has no definite plans tor
the future. :.
The annoancsment by the build
ing committee of the purchase of
the 20 acres of land known v as the
Hogg place, and the ratification of
the committee's action by the
board, was one of the features of
Wednesday's meeting The., price
r;A v.- -v.A : - .
one time the board had an option
on the property at $5,000, but was
without means at that time to
make the purchase. The land ad
joins the college farm on the east
and south, and its east line is the
boundary of the city limits on the
west. A portion of it is in use at
present as athletic grounds and is
ultimately to serve as a parade and
drill grounds for the cadet battal
ion. The tract is a desirable ad
dition to the college farm.'
A resolution requiring the
publication in the catalogue
of a list of text books was adopted.
The same reso ution provides (hat
in case local dealers will not supply
students with text books at list
iprices, the presidenl of the college
shall secure them from publishers,
or others. ,
Another resolution declares it -to
e the purpose of the board to hold
instructors responsible for an ab
normal number of failures in class
es, and directs the president of the
college to take cognizance of and
investigate such cases.
The sum of $150" each was vated
to Prof.s Covell and Clyde Phillips
for extra services in connection with
the construction of the addition to
the heating plant, and in other
lines. The action was recommended
Dy me uuuaing committee under
whose direction the service ren
oereu. There was ati extended discussion
of the fact of the comparatively
small attendance of girls at the
? college as contrasted with the atten
dance of boys, and of the causes for
the condition. . Statistics were quo
ted to show that, formerly the at.
tendance of the sexes was about
equal, bur that in recent years while
the attendance of boys has shown a
remarkable increase, there has been
but little grbwth in numbers of the
' other sex; Various speculations
were indulged in but no action was
taken. It developed that there is
a general sentiment on the board
for the erection of a Woman's Bail
ding with better accommodations
than the present, and , it is likely
that such a building will ' be the
next to be erected on the college
campus. A sentiment in favor of
askinsr legislative aid for such a
project was expressed.
It is probable that the college
will accept the request of the mana
gers, and maintain and prepare a
growing exhibit on a twelve, acre
tractat the 1905 Fair. The matter was
discussed at length by the board,
and was finally referred to the ex
. ecutive committee. The general
sentiment was verv favorable to the
plan. It was agreed, that the show
ing that the college would be able
to make would be first of all highly
beneficial to the whole state of Ore
gon, in that it would present in a
compact form the resources of the
state, and give Eastern visitors op
portunity to observe at a glance
something of what is possible in
the climate and soil of. Oregon. At
the same time, it was the opinion
' that an immense benefit would ac
crue to the college in the prominen
ce the dismay would give to the
Strayed, to the John Writesman place,
" a registered Cotawold bock. Owner may
prove property and pay charges.

tion of the stone seat on the campus
beneath which the child's limb was
caught. The seat it will be remem
bered was-placed there as a ' class
monument by the graduating class
of 1903. For some reason (the ce
ment applied in uniting the back
with the rest of the seat was inef
fective for the -purpose, and while
the child stood behind it, the heavy
stone fell It was with J extreme
difficulty that the little one was ex
tricated from her position, and car

A TEST CASE.
To Determine Whether or not Corval-
lisites Want Good Theatrical At
tractions. Among those who like to attend
theatres, the remark is frequently
heard, "Well, I wonder why the
Opera House management don't
get a good play once in a while
The management have wondered
if the public really meant what it
said, and believing that the people
of Corvallis are as much entitled to
one else, they are presenting' on
next Wednesday night, a company
of players that Jiave been ' every
where well received. The play is,
"Are you a Mason?" jsow being
played for the fourth year, arid
which ran for a week at the Colum
bia theatre in San Francisco two
weeks ago.; On the 18th, it begins
an engagement at the Marquam in
Portland The play itself is a de
cidedly "high class attraction, no
clog dancing and vaudeville, but a
standard play something on the or
der ot "My Friend irom India," so
well known to Corvallis.. people.
The prices to be charged in Port
land are 50 cents to St .so. - In Cor
vallis. the first three rows will be
$ 1. the remainder of the : reserved
seats, 50 and 75 .. cents.'. ' While
these prices are somewhat higher
than usual, the play is better than
usual. Sale of seats begins Tues
If you don't attend this play,
don't complain because the Opera
House does not bring high class
attractions. ' I( is up to you.
