It is necessary for practically
all of IhtiKe to uh the street car
between here and Eugene to get
to the school.
At the prcHent time they must
pay aten cent fare In order to
ride a few blocks beyond the
five cent fare limits.
In 1912 the ten cent fare pre
vailed. However, certain par
ties who had children attending
the state Institution, set for
themselves the task of securing
a five cent fare for students.
They laid the matter before the
proper officials and were suc
cessful In getting the reduced
fare. However, when the gov
ernment took over the railroads
during the war period the fare
was put back to ten "cents.
The number of students now
attending the university from
Springfield is greater than ever
before. It is onjy fair and Just
to them that a five cent fare
should be secured. This would
