New Dorm at College
O. A. C, Corvallis, Jan. 12. De
tailed plans and specifications for
the new men's dormitory authoriz
ed by the board of regents at the
January meeting will be prepared
ready for bids by March 1, Bennes
and Herzog, Portland architects
announce. This will permit con
tracts to be let March 10, says
President W. J. Kerr, with con
struction to be completed six
months later in time for opening
of the fall term.
The dormitory will care for 320
men and will cost between sssn nnn
and $400,000 fully equipped. The
entire cost will be met from dor
mitory receipts over a period not
to exceed 20 years, in accordance
with the recent act of the legisla
ture. Even though it will thus be
entirely self sustaining, charges to
students will be no higher than are
now paid for good private accom
modations. The new structure will be three
story brick with a five story cen
tral tower facing the center of the
campus from the corner between
Cauthorn hall and the forestry
building. It will thus replace old
Poling hall, the frame war bar
racks, and several wooden poultry
buildings. It will be the key unit
of all future men's dormitory con
struction planned to encircle that
quadrangle in years to come.
Modern consituction throughout
with most favorable arrangement
for study, health and social well
being of the men will be provided.
