And Student Building Meeting Lacked
Enthusiasm Somdthing of the
At a meeting at the court "house
last Friday evening the . student
building was ably presented.
Those present especially enjoyed
the stirring address of Robert Liv
ingston of Portland, who left heavy
business interests in coming to give
his tdk. - '
. Since this meeting: the matter
has been more or less prominent in
the mind of the citizens "of Corval- j
lis. Perhaps some misunderstand-1
ings exist regarding this building,
which if cleared up, might put the
movement in a stronger and if pos
sible, a more favorable light.
Because the strident organization
known as the Young Men's Chris
tioh. Association is leading in the
enterprise, the impression naturally
arises that the building is to be
used for. distinctly religious pur
poses. May it be said that this
has been thoroughly considered by
the directors and leaders, and un
animously disapproved. Although
an examination of the uses of the
rooms has appeared in these col
ums but it may be well to allude
to them again. Of the four rooms
in the basement floor, not one is
for religious purposes. On the first
main floor, there are twelve rooms
of which two small rooms are ' for
the use of the Christian Association
not entirely for religious work.' On
the second main floor, there are five
rooms, one of these being for the
meetings of the association, but
available for other meetings, j Of
other rooms in . the building, ath-"
letics and phyaical development
claim the larger part . of the base
ment and one room of the first floor;
debating, oratorical, musical and
jyurnalistic associations each have
a room; five rooms are reserved to
accommodate receptions a. id. ban
quets, four rooms are used for the
literary societies, and one for - leis
ure reading and study.
'A student building for alt stud
ents" has beenthe constant aim.
Had this not been the case it is
evident that the ' students would
not have contributed so freely re
gardless of creed, profession or be
lief. - '
- Their gifts also speak more elo
quently than sermons for the real
need for this building.' Those who
have been asked to help in provid
ing the student buildingmay scarce
ly appreciate the lack of that essen
tial factor in , our life . which . . the
student keenly feel, a home. The
result of this lack is that they too
frequently abuse the social instincts
and impair", their usefulness as
citizens." On these grounds should
not the movement appeal to every
one who wants to see our college
advanced, and our students aided
in their various legitimate activities
and encouraged in their moral life.

VISITED 0. A. C
Legislators Did And Liked it Saw
Departments and Were Banqueted.
The Agricultural College was
visited by 40 legislators Saturday.
They came on a special train ar
riving shortly after one o'clock, and
after two and a half hours spent in
the various buildings .and depart
ments, left'for Yaquina Bay. Of
their visit they had much to say,
and all in a complimentary vein.
They all signed a paper, thanking
the ladies of Corvallis for the lunch
eon served the party in Agricultur
al hall. They expressed surprise
at the magnitude of what they found
at the collega, and started a move
ment for having the cadets visit
the legislature so all the solons
could see them drill. :,
The excursion party comprised
a hundred people. Though cold,
the day was one of brilliant sun
shine. "The bayonets and guns of
the cadets gleamed under" the suns
rays and made a brilliant 4 setting
for the 400 or more blue uniforms
as the boys drilled for ; the law
makers. The special train stopped
on College Avenue, and the ; sadtts
the regimental band and numerous
people met the solons here. As
the latter alighted from the train,
the band was playing and the ca-i
dets were in the midst of a beauti
ful evolution. . Theyr waited and
watched while the drill lasted and
then fell in behind the marching
column and repaired to Agricultur
After the luncheon, there was a
few, minutes of speechmaking.
President Gatch welcomed the vis
itors in behalf of the college facul
ty, and was warmly applauded.
President, Weatherford, speaking
for the board, added further cor
dial greetings, and took occasion to
call attention to the practical char
acter of the work at OAC, and to
the wide popularity the plan seem
ed to have in the state, measuring
by the student attendance.
Senator Haines responded for thepaper 5e and I0C per roll
visitors, ine occasion was not
his first visit to OAC, and he said
so. - Each new visit, he said gave
'him new interest in the" institution,
and the present occasion he said
would prove no exception to his
rule. His remarks were highly
commendatory, and were warmly
received. Senator Haines is a bank
er at Hillsboro, and ..an able and
influential member of the senate.
. The chemical laboratories and the
college shops, were, visited - bj the
party, as were other, departments.
The occasion reminded many of a
similar excursion, six years ago by
a legislative party to the college,
snow, ' cold and storm conspired to
make the day one of the fiercest
ever known in Oregon. - " "
And Holds old Home in Corvallis A
- Supreme Court Decision.
A decision hsnded down by the
supreme court Monday, settles the
litigation over the Osburn residence
property in the block north of the
court house. The effect is to leave
James Osburn owner of the prop
erty, Speaking of the case, the
"The defendant was adjudged a
bankrupt in November, 1900, and
was discharged of his debts by or
der of the federal court in May,
1 901. His home in Corvallis was
set. apart to him in the course of
the bankruptcy proceedings, and
the estate was fully settled and the
trustee discharged in 1902.
This suit was instituted in March
1903, to subject the home to the
payment of four notes executed in
1891. These notes were proveable
and were proved in the bankrupt
cy proceedings, and a small divi
dend paid therK)n. . The circuit
Court' dismissed the suit and the
The homestead exemption act
was passed in 1893, after these
notes were given, and the question
presented was, whether a court of
equity has jurisdiction to entertain
this suit, since the bankrupt has
been discharged of the debts upon
which the suit was' founded.
The Supreme Court, affirming
the lawer court, holds that tne debt
was not a: lien upon his property,
and that, since the debtor had been
discharged by the bankruptcy pro
ceedings before the plaintiff sought
to, enforce her demands, her reme
dy is entirely swept away.
