and to the class of people who are
allowed to buy lots in the addition,
according to the plan.
Only those who are approved by
the corporation may buy lots in the
addition. Faculty members will be
encouraged to buy and families from
towns distant from the university
who wish to move to Norman also
will be favored in the granting of
house building privileges.
Walks will be laid'and the addition
plotted. No grading on the property
will be needed as the land is level.

is the highest in Norman and com-
mands a view of the river and of the
university, E. R. Kraettli, a member
of the corporation, said.
J. L. Lindsey, treasurer of the cor-
poration, L. B. Nice, and A. C. Par-
sons, are members of the building
