Manager - Stimson returned
Monday evening from Salem where
he met representatives and arrang
ed 'for the state intercollegiate
track meet. Four places instead
of three are to be given in each ev
ent, and are to count as - follows:
1st place, five points; second, three;
third, two; fourth, one. J The fiity
yard dash is to ' be cut out of the
schedule, but the "relay is admitted
with a count of nve points. 1 he
other three colleges wanted to cut
out both the relay and ; the fifty,
but Manaeer Stimson contended for
both to be left-in, and compromised
with admission of the relay. A
old medgl is to go to the winner
of each first, and a silver medal to
the winner of each second place. .
Preparations on an elaborate
scale are being made by the local
lodge of Odd Fellows for an event
that is to take, place on the. evening
of the 25th. The 26th is the 86th
anniversary of . Odd Fellowship,
but owing to some difficulty in hav
ing access to thtir hallon that ev
ening, the event is to be celebrated
on the evening of the 25th. An
anniversary programme is furnished
by the order for thisv occasion, and
besides this, there will be music,
a banquet, toasts, and other fea
. tures of interest. There is a' de
sire on the part of the local lodge
to make the occasion memorable in
the history ot the order in Corval
lis. All members in Corvallis and
vicinity will be heartily welcomed
. There will be a great battle of
sprinters on OAC field two weeks
from next Saturday. Kelly, the
great Columbia ; athlete will be
here at that time to contest for
supremacy over Smithson and Wil
liams., He is a great athlete.. In
build he is more siender than Smith
son, about as tall as Williams, and
with an immense spring and- a beau
tiful stride. ,, He nearly defeated
Smithson in the fifty; and at a time
when Smithson was breaking the
world's indoor record.' He defeat
ed both Williams and Smithson in
the 220, all in Saturday's great
meet, but out on college hill there
is a pretty f well settled conviction
that he can't and shan't do it
again. Kelly and his admirers
doubtless think differently. The
question will be, determined , when
the Columbia University track team
of which Kelly is the star, comes
to Corvallis to go against the OAC
team' in a dual meet Saturday : May
6th. Kelly will be in three sprints
, of that day the fifty, 100 and the
220. In all he will go against
Smithson and Williams. The day
will undoubtedly see the greatest
battle of sprinters that ever took
place in Willamette Valley, with, an
almost certainty . that State, North
west and all Lother kinds of rec
ords will be broken. The. men
w,ho will take part in it are among
the fastest in the world.

. - ,-. ( - .
. Corvallis grand parents are in an

turn to them of their . little grand
daughter. The child is but a little

only-born of their dead daughter
who passed Beyond a year or two
ago. The grand parents are , Mr.
and Mrs. Senger of this city,' em
inently respectable people, former-.
ly of Brownsville. The story . of
the effort to secure possession 1 of
the child, now detained by their
dead daughter s husband, . is told
as follows in' the Albany Herald:
"Elizabeth and John Senger of
Corvallis, yesterday afternoon filed
a petition for habeas corpus in the
county court, asking that Wilma
Ruth Warren, their grand child be
produced in court." The petition
alleges, that the daughter of . peti
tioners was married to one,xLuther
Warren in 1902, that later the
daughter returned to the home of
her parents where the child was
born and wiere heir daughter
died, after exacting a- promise of
her husband - that the . child
shoud remain with the mother's
parents. Tht petitioners further
allege that their daughter carried
an insurance policy for $1,000 pay
able to the petitioners and that $700
of the proceeds were given - to the
son-in-law in return for the promise
that the child should remain with
them. The allegation is made
that the father of the child took the
little oneto his parents who now
have control of the little girl, that
the father is intemperate and unfit
to bring up a child and they ask
that the little one be returned " to
them. ' The writ was issued, re
turnable Wednesday. . April 19th,
when it was expected " the little girl
will be brought into court.

0. A. C. Executive Committee Has
Woes Trouble Ahead for Union

The executive committee of the
OAC board of regents is wrestling
with a perplexing question of what
to do with the Eastern Oregon ex
periment station. If the appropria
tion bill goes to the referendum
ihe station will -be- withouta.f unds
A $15,000 , appropriation was pro
vided for, which would have been
ample for the two ensuing years.
Even the income from the farm
which amounts to $5,000 in two
years cannot be spent tor maintain
ance of the' experimental farm and
laboratories. A law passed by the
late legislature provided . that the
revenues from the .farm should be
turned over to the secretary of
state and thence into the state treas
ury, whence it can only be paid
out by special legislative appro
priation. The effect of the law is
to tie up the farm revenues and to
leave the executive committee
practically without means for pay
ing even the salary of a laborer to
look after thesimpliest details of
the place. The executive commit
tee met in Portland last Saturday
night, and appointed a sub-committee
to I interview the secre
tary V of state and a 1 1 o r-

not some way out of the difficulty.
