A letter received last night from
Representative Peter McGregor, at
Olympia, announces that the joint
appropriation committee of the
house and senate has agreed upon
$160,000 as the total amount to be
given the State College for the next
two years. Of this amount, $150,
--000 is for maintenance, and $10,000
for improvement and equipment of
the Mechanical engineering build
ing. : . -<?
The requests of the various state
institutions for new buildings were
all refused at this time, the demands
for cash for the different state de
partments being 80 great that it was
imposible to allow them..
The appropriation for mainten
ance this session is $40,000 over that
given two years ago, when it was
but $110,000. This increase is
made necessary by reason of the
great growth and development of
the institution, and at that the ap
