completed among students and is
moving into different districts of the
state where alumni and friends of the
collate are located. -
More than half of the sum needed
was raised on the campus in an in
tensive drive of a week. Inspired by
the record of O. A. C. and Ore ;on
heroes in the war, the undergraduates
and faculty of the college pledged
more than half of the total in tbr
days. President V. J. Kerr, who was
seriously ill at the time, sent in his

The great Memorial union proiect
will seek to draw together the four
component parts of the college: stu

will be a great gathering plac for
college interests, a magnet to attract
students and alumni in all walks of
life and a melting pot to create a col
lege democracy, say those in charge.
Loyalty of individual students and
alumni, who mortgaged t'leir future
earning power tn help pay hark to
their alma mater part of the training
received, gave an impetus to the cam
paign that makes the total objr tive

ers. One fcrshman student from Cali

many contributions of $J50 and more
More than $.'25,000 of the total is
now subscribed and construction on

The building will have moms for
student activities, faculty meetings,
assembly halls for large gatherings,
trophy rooms where athletic awards
of the Varsity "()" association may

the building of rampus dramatic pro
ductions and many other types of
rooms. All the student publications
will be housed in the new building

"The Memorial union building will
release much needed class room in the
buildings provided by the state," said
E. B. I-envm, registrar. "College life
is highly organized and many of the
student groups require accommoda

building is being built without coot to
the state, which is an important fea

gram," Of much interest to students and
faculty is the plan for the theater in

mittee. One thousand persons will be

and Not One Cent for Repairs
The real value of the 1925 Star is
proven by the service it gives its
owners in every day use.
Here's a case in point: Twenty-four
Star owners report that they drove
an aggregate of 601 ,3 1 7 miles with
out one cent cost for repairs.
Sounds unusual yet, based on the
report of 40,000 Stir owner on
the Pacific Coast, the average cost
of replacement parti average 63c
per car. That's what Star give you
in iow upkeep cost
And it does prove the truth of our
statement that no car in the low cove
field equals the 192S Star for day in
and day out mechanical perform
ance. And with all that, you drive the best
looking light car designed.
Your dealer has the late models, all
with the Million Dollar Motor, with
it quick and abundant power,
quick acceleration (5 to 25 mile
per hour in Wt econds) 20

Cut Machinery Cost
The man who leaves his machines in the fields Is pay
Ing, by depreciation, for an Implement shed, but not
getting the she J.
You can cut your machinery cost in half by prolong
ing its life anq usefuflness. You can double the life of
an Implement by putting it under cover as soon as you
are through using it
The cost of ;an implement shed to protect $2,000.00
worth of machinery is only a fraction of that sum.
We have many excellent implement shed plans to show
you, and we have the right material to build just the
kind and size building you require. Da not make the
mistake ofbuiJding before you .examine our up-to-date
implement sh ed plans. ' we will be glad to have you call
and examine them, whether you are building now or
