to the state that no other instituion has had or can have. "

Mr, Campbell, who is president of the University of Ore

WATCHING THE ANIMALS
The new zoological gardens in
Chicago are to be the finest In
the world. As an attraction, they
will rock the stockyards to sleep.,
The grounds will cover more than
200 acres lying along the -Des-plaines
river. The land was pro
vided by Mrs. Edith Rockefeller
McCormlck and the landscaping
Is being done under her projec
tion. It will be a taming of the
wjld. ' The' animals will be ap
parently in the , oper and wiU,
have surroundings and conditions
as nearly in accord with the old
home as possible. ' They will be
separated from visitors bya'mbat

will be sand and. Jungle or. the

be so protected that 5 they cannot

all its wonders may be seen as
readily from an automobile as on
foot. Neither will pedestrians
and motorists get in one another's

IX DARKEST AMEDICA
The sheriff who refused to in
terfere in' the Herrln massacre
and who made no attempt to
either stop the murders or arrest
the murderers, baa just meen re
turned to office by the biggest
majority eTer given a candidate
in Williamson county, Illinois.
That appears to be the answer
of the county to its' critics. Al
though more than 300 indictments
for murder and conspiracy were
finally found by a special grand
jury, the difficulty of securing a
conviction within the boundaries
of the county may be imagined
in the face of this election show
ing. If we are to have a darkest

DANCE AND DIVORCE
One of the judges says the fact
that a wife leaves her husband
three nights a week in order
indulge her dancing passion does
not constitute grounds for di
vorce. If the dance is an orderly
one and her association with other
men does not extend' beyond the
fox-trotting stage, the wife may
still be blameless. The husband
may always exercise his legal
right of accompanying the wife,
anyhow. Let -him go to the dance
himself and then see how the
wife stands it. If she. goes to
the hop in order to be free of tha
husband, another question prises.
