Last week A. J. Shirley, who dur
ing last winter looked after matters
in this city in the interest of the
O. C. T. Co.; paid CorvalliB a brief
visit. ' Mr. Shirley is still with
the company and is stationed for
the winter at Albany. Mr. Hoff
man is now in charge of this com
pany's business in Corvallis. An
other matter of V news is th fact
that Frank Thrasher, of Coryallis,
is now billing cleak for the O, C. T.
Co. and is stationed in Portland. ,
Last week we called attention to
the fact that Toledo needs a resi
dent physician. We would empha
size the need. All the central and
eastern part of the county have no
physician located in their territory.
While we admit that this is an ex
ceptionally healthy county, yet it is
not prudent to rely entirely on
breskfast foods and .chittim bark.

expect to be away long on this

It is pleasing to note the interest
manifested by the Corvallis public
in recitals given at the college. The
recital t the college J nday even
ing by pupils of Prof. -Taillandier,"
head of the piano department, and
Prof. Helen V. Jrawford ot , the
elocutionary- department, assisted
by Miss - Lulu Spangler, vocalist,
was a most successful one in every
sense, in -act, it was tne . most
largely attended of any pupils' recit
al ever - given at the college, accord
ing to report, and this is saying a j
great deal. The c'aapel was packed
to standing room and more. Every
one on the program acquitted them
selyes most creditably. These re-
citals are of untold value : to stud
ents, as they provide opportunity
for Dublic appearances, and such a
large audience as was in evidence
Friday evening are very encourag
ing to a teacher, as they show an
interest in, and an appreciation of
the teacher's work.
