TEE BOYS LOST
And the Girls Won at Debate Second
Contest in Gatch Series.
A big audience was in College
chapel Ftiday night to hedr Sorosis
cirls debate with the bovs of the
Zetegathean society. The contest
resulted in a defeat for the boys,
similar calamity having overtaken
a boy's team in a debate with girls
in the initial contest of the series.
A fact that makes the case interest
ing is that of the three years .the
Gatch cup has been debated for,
the boys bad won but once while
girls have twice captured the prize.
The Amlcitia boys first captured
the cup, then the Pierian girls and
last year the Feronian maidens.
In Friday night's debate, the
question was "Resolved that the
president of the United States
should not have the power of veto.'
The boys have the affirmative and
the girls the negative, and the
teams were,- Zetegatheans, Mr.
Thayer,' Mr. Forrest and Mr.
Clark; Sorosis; Miss Ieona Webber
Miss Pauline Davis and Miss Edna
Irvine, The boys maintained that
the president had already greater
power than the constitution origin
ally designed, and with much force
endeavored to establish the fact
that the veto is not necessary. The
girls pointed out that .of the 433
measures vetoed time but 29
have been passed over the presid
ent's negative, 15 of those being
in a partisan contest between con
gress and Andrew Johnson. This
fact they urged, indicated that the
veto had been wisely used, which
was a reason for its continuance.
They also urged it to be needed as
a stay against corrupt and bad
legislation, and as a means for the
president to defend the executive
power against possible encroach
ments of congress. The judges
were, E, R. Bryson, Prof. Horner
and Prof, Tartar.
In addition to the debate, there
was a piano solo and encore by
Mrs. Green, and a vocal duet,
pleasantly rendered, by Miss Juliet
Cooper and Miss Una Stewart.

" William McLagan,
Displayed by an Oldtime Citizen
Also a Iijemorable Election
Among the early day farmers of
. Benton county who come to Cor
vallis occasionally is William Rid
enour, who resides on Big Elk, in
Iyincoln county. Mr. Ridenour
is well down the shady slope of
life, a time when a reverent man
becomes reminiscent and dwells
largely upon things that havebeen,
and those which might have been.
Upon the occasion of Mr. Riden
our' s recent visit to town he exhib
ited a number of relics which are a
source of pleasure to him and of
interest to others. In his collec
tion, for example, is a certificate of
good character and proficiency in
the blacksmith trade issued by his
instructor and employer, Jacob
Flaugher, Jr. It was dated- at
Tiff an, Ohio, in 1852, just prior
to Mr. Ridenour' s departure for
the California gold fields. Other
relics prized by him are several du
plicate drafts upon the Adams and
the Wells, Fargo & Company's
express companies, The originals
were sent by Mr. Ridenour to - his
father at various times soon after
the former arrived in California,
a'nd began taking out the yellow
metal. , Several articles in his pos
session have been sought by the
Oregon Historical society, but the
owner on several occasions declin
ed to part with them.
Mr. Ridenour came to Benton
county in 1859. Later he married
Jane Kenney. whose father, the
colonel, located the Newman place,
in the Long Tom settlement. Mr.
Ridenour, himself owned a farm a
mile south of Corvallis, for many
years. He and George Houck
were partners in the stock business
for a long period, and were quite
successful. In 1868, Mr. Riden
our ran for sheriff, of this county,
against Judson Palmer, in what
was a memorable campaign, ! The
first count of the votes showed Rid
enour to.have been elected by two
votes but a recount gave the office
to Palmer by one majority. Mr.
Ridenour was prominent in the af
fairs of Benton many years, but 25
years ago he took up a ranch on
Bisr Elk, and there he resides in
retirement and comparative enjoy
OVER SEVEN INCHES.
Of Rain in March Two Frosts To
tals for Past Years.
Only 7.05 inches of rain fell in
March. - It probably looked to the
old inhabitant that it was raining
more than that, but 7.05 inches
was all the college weather clerk
found for measurement.
The highest temperature during
the month was 77, on the 9th, and
the lowest, 31 on the '30th. The
latter was the morning when there
was general averment about town
by citizens that they had found ice
about thir places that morning.
lhe greatest rainfall in 24 hours
was 1. 14 inches on the 25th. Twen-
tyone days were rainy, nine were
clear, seven part cloudy, and 15
cloudy. There was frost on the
29th and 30th, light in both in
stances. The total rainfall for the
period beginning the 1st of last
September and ending March 31st,
was 34.77 inches. The total for
the same period last year with the
month of April added, that is from.
September 1st to May 1st, was
51.64 inches. The total for the
year before that, with April in
cluded, was 38.25 inches.
