on the matter of appropriations?

When the 1919-20 school year
opens in September the university
will have nine brick* and stone
buildings in addition to the armo-
ry for the use of the R. O. 1. C.
The new library an*l the new ge-
ology buildings will both be ready
for occupancy at that time. 1 he
other buildings arc administration
ball, law, chemistry, auditorium,
engineering, and the old library
and science buildings.
It is believed that the •university
will not t'#n hav • sufficient root.i
to relieve congested classroom and
laboratory conditions which have
prevailed at the university at all
times since the university was es-
tablished in 1893. Two thousand
or more resident students are ex-
pected nejt September and crowd-
ed conditions will continue but the
new buildings wil help take care
Woman's Building in Year.
One year later, the new woman's
building, given the university by
the last legislature, probably will
be constructed and ready for use.
This building will fill a need long
felt at the university and undoubt-
edly will greatly increase the num-
ber of women students attending
the fmfcersity. In past years the
proportion of men to women stu-
dents has been about two to one.
The war decreased the number of
men here this year and the propor-
tion is about 40 per cent wort en
of the 1,400 students.
