TWO WOULD SUFFICE
FOR NEED&-OF OREGON
R. Alexander, President of the State
Board of Regents, Thinks That Five

R. Alexander, president of the state
board of normal regents, when inter
viewed by an East Oregonlan reporter
this morning about Governor Cham
berlain's recommendation to cut tho
number of state normal colleges from
four In number to two, was not very

being tho only normal the entire east

efficiency Is Increasing every year, and
for tho past year or two at a rapid
Ho considers the present president
and faculty as efficient and capable.
During the past two years between
$50,000 and $60,000 has been expend
ed on tho Weston normal, and the
board of regents Is asking for 137,-
000 this legislature. These reasons
moro particularly the location of the
Weston normal In Mr. Alexanders
opinion, forestall tho presentation of
nny arguments for tho abandonment
of this, college that will have any con
ilder-ible weight w'lh the legislature.
Ho believes that one normal in
Western ai tl nno In Eastern Oretrnn
poperly maintained, would meet all
l oturil or legitimate demands of the
1'fople for state normals.
Mr. Alexander incidentally favors
reducing tho number of regents of the
state normr.l from soven to flw. The
most forcllle reason for the reduc
tion being the fact that It Is very sel
dom that any amount of persuasion nr
good reasons for a full board meeting

the mcmbets. Usually there Is but
cie session in the year at which nil
the members arc present, and that Is
the session at which tho teachers for

Is necessary to secure the attendance

A DELIVERY WAGON MERGER.
Pendleton Firms Will Discard Private
Teams and .Use City Delivery.
A movement Is well under way now
which promises to do away with the
many jyrivato delivery teams now In
uso uy the business firms of this city
An effort Is being made to form a
city delivery, under the management
of ono firm, which now operutes five
wagons. Tho merchants aro taking
very favorably to the proposition, as
tiio co3t of maintaining tho delivery
teams is about equal to tho cost of
hiring this service performed.
Tho principal merchants have been
conferred vith by tho promoters of
tho plan, and much favorablo senti
ment has been expressed. The main
tenance of a system of city delivery,
with teams enough to meet tho busi
ness requirements of the city prompt
ly, would meet with universal ap
proval amocg business men, and tho
scheme will be pushed as fast as pos
sible. Already a limited number of tho
business firms havo disposed of their
