Already parents and prospect
ive students from all parts ot the

and board would do well to make
the fact known to the college au

; That there is an unusual am
ount of summer travel this year
would seem to be an undeniable
fact, judging from the appearance
of the hotel busses that make the
trips daily to meet incoming trains
A day or two ago, the Hotel Cor
vallis bus made two tiips after pas
sengers who came in on .the Port-tead-traip,
and tour trips were ne
cessary to bring in the passengers
that arrived on the incoming train
from Newport- Just what will be
done in the way of accommodations

This is no dream, though the
parties cot cernel may have been
dreatai: g. They started from Hal
sty at 10 p. m. intending to drive
to Corvallis. They took tin left
hand road at each turning point,
and at two o'clock that mornina:
hey entered a little bure that they
thought was Tangent. It proved
to be Halsey, however, thft place
from which they had started four
hours before. It was about seven
o'clock the next morning when they
reached Corvallis, and swore all
their iriends to silence regarding
the adventure, a silence long since
broken. Moral:- Secrets shared
with friends are secrets no longer.
