In written form, a code ot 10 cardi

special committee appointed a year

president ot tho State Normal school
The .code as adopted, and to -which
all the, teachers ot the state will be
expected to subscribe, follows:
"To, govern one's conduct In public
and private life by the highest princi

"To be loyal to all movements loot

phraseology as a slap at the rank and

loyal, but nothing was said ot loyalty

A. C. Professor Tells Thurston In
provement Club How.
An expenditure of between $300 and
1600 may 'bo sufficient to control the
destruction to farms caused by tho
McKenzio river. At least, this favpr
able opinion was given by Professor
Tweeters, of tho Oregon Agricultural
college, beforo a meeting of the Thurs
ton Improvement club ono night last
week. Depredations' of tho river on
farm lands havo been cauelag consi
derable loss ot late, and tho decision
ot Professor Tweeters after his laves-

Besides the address of Professor
Tweeters, there were talks as follows;
