University Notes
That the scholustic standards of old
Willame'.te bid fair to be maintained
with unquestioned ability this year is
opined both from tho unusually strict
requirements laid down by the univer

honorary tuitional scholarships by 17
members of the university's 120 class.
The system of awarding scholarships
has been in vogue for tho past three
years and has produced splendid results
in the general advertising value to the
university as well as an aid to contin
ued standardisation. Over 40 of such
scholarships wero offered to leading
high school graduates last June in var

That the university might provide
for the disorganized aud back require
ments of conditional students desiring
to register for collegiate work, several
classes in secondary school subjects are
now beinir tauuht under the general
supervision of the various departmental
heads. As the old Willamette academy
was abandoned last year, a considerable
number of students who hnd not com
pleted their academic years of work
prior to collegiate entrance were left
in the lurch whether to enter the uni
versity conditioned or take up work in
the high schools. In order to oblivinte
these difficulties courses in propara-.
torv subjects arc now being offered.

To Be Taken
It was a hitter, bitter pill for the Sn
1cm school board to swallow but it was
compelled by force of circumstances to
swallow it dictum of the 1 R. L. aud
P. Hoganling the conditions under
which they would construct gas mains
to pipe gas into the Lincoln school so j
that the cooking department of the
school could proceed.
Anil the demand of the gas company
was $290 for doing the work.
It was iav up or get no gas, and the
school bonrd felt the prod of iron. They
admitted they were up against it, in

had been lured, equipment secured, andiBlU Carrigau, the elub owners, players
pupils ready to go to work.
The board emphasized in no uncertain
terms its displeasure of what they term
ed a hold-up of "tho public interest. It
was felt to bo a serious matter when
a public service corporation, a corpora
tion they alleged was bankrupt, conld
issue such an ultimatum to representa
tives of such an institution as tho pub
lic school.
The school board was stumped. They
hated to knuckle down and be bled.
Thev felt the keenness of the injustice
of giving a franchise to a company that
can use its own judgment as to serving
or not scrying the city.
Franchise Harmless
Max Buren declared that the fran
chise issued by the city was useless as
by a recent law public service corpora
tions were taken out of the hands of
the city and placed under the jurisdic
tion of the public service commission.
Ho did not like the proposition a bit
and the fact of being backed against
tho wall did not set well with him. He
felt he was obliged to surrender as the
range used last" year was out of the
question for service this year, and elec
tric fixtures and heating out of sight,
and the children would lose the benefit
of the course of study if the gas plates
were not installed.
H. L. Clark said he did not blame Un
people for not using gas. Ho was peev
ed also. Mr. Karnes showed some amel
iorating items in the fact that six per
cent interest would be allowed by the
company on tho money advanced and
one third rebate of all new consumers
bills on tho new extension, which would
help to lessen the total sum somewhat.
Bo, after the pros and cons of the
matter were discussed, aiid the school
board saw how deeply it was bottled
up by the gas company, it voted to au
thorize the gas company to connect up
the Lincoln school with the gas mains
for the sum of 2!0. Mayor White did
not like to do it but he voted for the
authorization, as he said they were de
cidedly up aguinst it.

Proper Attention
In commenting on certain matters In
reference to the state highway commis
sion yesterday, Secretary of Stnto Ben
W. Olcott said: "I agree heartily with
what Mr. Benson snid in his little
speech recently delivered before the
Portland Realty board at its good
roads day program.
''Our road laws are nntiiuated and
contacting. they need revision in
order that thev mnv meet modern ro-
quirements. Mr. Benson's suggestion
that a state highway commission be
created of successful business men,
who may concentrate their minds on
the problem, would do much to inspire
the confidence of tho people of the
state aud bring the state fuH value for
the money expended.

A iery necessary step is to provide
funds, which should be not less than
one-mill tax levy, which, along with
the available flovernmeiit and land
grant funds, in a few years would
give us a good start on state highways.
I would give attention first to
grading main trunk lines according to
need and iniportnnco of each partic

road should bo classified as to its im

"A small sentiment is being culti
