No Game With Chemawa.
There wasjio football game' at
the college Saturday. The con
test scheduled to occur between
the O A C and Chemawa elevens
was called off at the last minute.
Some strict rules have, been
adopted by the college aiid other
leading educational institutions
of the state with the laudable
purpose of eliminating profes
sionalism and other objectionable
features from eolle&e athletic
contests. Under tSese rales the
college can admit no rnaa to her
team whose record is not absolu
tely free from these objectionable
features, and mere, her team is
barred from competing with
teams containing such members.
Chemawa, it is claimed, insisted
on haviag men in her line-up
who did not fill the requirements
of these rules. Chemawa bars' a
right to have these men in her
team, but their preseflce made it
necessary for the college to can
cel its game with her.
' Maud Muller.
" (Revised Version.)
Maud Mailer on a summer's day,
Set a hea in a brand new way.
(Maud, you see, was a. city girl,
Trying the rural life a whirl.)
She covered a box with tinsel gay, ;
Lined it.snugly with new-mown hay. ;
Filled it nicely with eggs, and then
Started to look for a likely hen
Out of the flock selected one;
And then she thought her work was done.
It would have been, but this stubborn
- . beta
Stood up and cackled 'Ka-doot!'' and
Maud Muller came, and in hurt surprise,
Looked coldly into the creature's eyes.
Then tied its legs to the box. "You b?t,"
Said she, "I know how to make you set."
But still it stood, and worse and worse,
Shrieked forth its wrongs to the universe.
Kicked over the box with its tinsel gay,
And ign'ominiously flapped away.
Then a bad boy over the barnyard fence,
Tee-hee, "Say, Maud, there's a differ-

In a letter to the Oregon Agricul
turist, Hon. H. B. Miller says: -
The state of Oregon should take
a lesson from the failures of China
and resolve to have no one sided
structure; schools are plentiful for
the education of lawyers, ' doctors,
and the general training required
for merchants and bankers; and
training schools for mechanics are
growing more, plentiful, and all of
these areTeing endowed 1 7 million
aires in great abundance; but
schools for proper training in the
science and art of agriculture in all
branches are depondent mostly
upon state aid, and it should be the
policy of the board of regents of the
O A G to strengthen the experi
ment station and practical training
work of the institution.
The Agricultural College is bless
ed with some men who are able
and effective workers in the science
of agriculture, and it is and has
been for years one of the serious
mistakes of the institution that
these men have been kept at work
doing ordinary, cheap grade leash
ing, and their best qualities have
been dwarfed because of this low
grade, class room, text-book teach
ing. You have struck the keynote of
the difficulty in the make up of the
board of regents.
Leading dairyman, stockmen and
horticnlturists should be put upsn
the board and should be its dom
It some man would take up the
question of irrigation in Oregon
and do as good work in that line as
Mr. Killin did in dairy work, he
would be doing a noble service.
The immense amount ot available
land and water going to waste in
almost every section of Oregon is
simply beyond conception. Oppor
tunities for irrigation 'should be the
leading subject ia Oregon a adver
ti ing literature.
