DR. C. A. DUNIWAY AND DR.
OSCAR J. CRAIG TALiK ON
A fair-sized audience of men at
tended the meeting of the Neighbor
hood club last evening in the Con
gregational church anid listened to an
informal talk by Dr. C. A. Duniway,
president of the state university, on
matters pertaining to that institution.
Dr. Dunlway spoke of the immediate
needs of the university, especially as
regards a dormitory for men, a build
ing which' is essential to the welfare
of the institution. The crying need of
additional farcilities in the college
gymnasium, especially the need for
"moaie and additional bathing facilities,
was also discussed and shown to be
.urgent, Additions should be made to
the equipment in both the chemical
and the physical laboratories, and a
laboratory for work in psychology
'should Pe provided and made of use,
Dr. Dunilway took up the subject of
a clean and moral city *which aspires
;to be' the' leading" e~licational center
of the state and clfe.' instances where
.several parents of the city, when asked
Why they did not send their children
to the university, replied that they did'
not approve of the mouitl atmosphere
and did not wish' their children to 'be
brought in cofftact with such condi
tions as exist at' the prehent time. He
"does not unfa''orabily compare the
city with othie's of the state, but does
,say that any tbWn whfit wishes to be
the seat of a sfate university should
have the" clBanigtf ossible atmosphere.
The' rna'i.t' o.' the plans for enlarg
ing' the fathtit'y of the university was
taiken up bfy the president and the in
tentiofi to sub-divide some of the de
partments was a subject for some talk,
but all favorable.
At the conclusion of Dr. Duniway's
address, which received the a&f'poba
tlon of the auldletice, Dr. .Oscar' J:
Craig, former president of the univeir
:sity, spoke on thp history and 'g'ogthb
'of the institution and found catuse for
congratulation on the position' to
which it has attained. He spoke hope
.fully of the coming growth and ex
1pressed a belief that it would soon be
'one of' the best schools in the north
SWhen Dr. Craig had ended his talk,
different men of the club asked ques
tions about the university which were
answered in the best possible manner.
On the whole, much was learned of
the development and growth of the
state university, and a thorough un
derstanding of its needs and require
ments was established.

Below is printed an exa.t copy of a letter received by
the Missoula Light and Water company from the OttsWElee
tric company, the largest elevator manufacturing cdhebtn
in the world.
OTIS ELEVATOR COMPANY.
Salt Lake City, Fmay 3, 1909.
Mr. S. R. Inch, Manager Light Department,
Missoula Light & Water Company,
Your letter of April 26th was referred to me ony my return from an
eastern trip, and I thank you for the information given as to tie power
From the best data which we have, Missoula has more eleva.0rs; both
in number and in horse-power capacity, than any city of similar size in
the United States. This data is, of course, taken from our own records,
and applies to our own installations. but the writer feels sure that it is
correct, even when all other manufacturers are considered. We, in this
office, are quite proud of the fact that in a town of fifteen thousand there
are installed and under contract 12 modern electric elevators.
Yours very truly,
OTIS ELEVATOR COMPANY,

READY O THE, RUSH
TO RIEi TER
THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
TAKr8S UfP tRE QUESTION,
There was an interesting meeting at
the rooms of the chamber of com
merce last night, at which the ques
tion of the entertainment of the regis
tration crowds was discussed. l1twas
agreed that there should be prompt
action taken to ihsbrt the comfort of
those who visit Missoula during the
next 60 days. John M. Evans, C. H.
McLeod, J. M. Keith, M. J. Elrod, C.
H. Marsh and others discussed the
matter in detail.
It was the unanimous opinion of all
these people that Missoula should pre
pare at once, more systematically than
has been done, for the reception and
accommodation of the visitors. It is
not the purpose of the chamber of
commerce to enter the field
as a proprietor of a lodging
establishment or an eating house.
As far as possible it is, the
wish of the organization that these
matters be taken care of by those al
ready in the business. If the hotel
and restaurant men can care for the
crowds, so much the better; it is sim
ply a matter of getting information'asa
to how many people can be accommo
dated. The same is true as to the
sleeping quarters for the visitors. If
there are private enterprises that will
furnish beds and cots enough, it will
simplify the matter greatly. All that
the chamber of commerce wants to
know' is that this work is being done
and, to that end, committees were
named last night to look into the ma
ter and see what provision has' bebn
made. These committees are:
On boarding places-F. J. Erfert, P.
M. Reilly and C. H. Marsh.
On sleeping places-C. H. McLeod,
A. L. Stone and C. i: Greenhood.
In the matter of sanitation, which is
an important question, Mayor Logana
and' Alde'tneht Wilkinson and Kohn
were named as a' committee to make
'geefi.lirutles' as to the construction
of lavstotries aind toilets, all to be con
netited Wth the city sewers. The' ques
tion of publicity and advertising Was
taken up and'placed in, the hands of
a committee pteviou$ly appointed,:
which. will take: up. t)e Work this
morning, endeavori.g . to raise' the
funds necessary for the work outlined.
