f it 11 mi I report to the board of trustees
of Princetou university nt Its winter

It clear that he hopes to muke hid re

Ills program calls for a central en
dowment fund of approximately $4.
OOO.OOO. the Income from which will
meet the present annual defj''* In
Princeton's budget: the establh. -nt
of schools of mechanical engineering,
mining engineering and forestry: the
erection of a large university hull for
the common use of graduate*, under
graduates and faculty; a new dormi
tory with many low priced rooms, a
new chemical laboratory, a systematic
development of the library and a large
increase In the number of scholarships
for self supporting students.
Probably the newest of these sngges
tlons are the proposals of the mechan
ical and mining engineering and for
estry schools, accessories which would
appreciably broaden the scope of
Princeton's work.
Mr. Hlbben's proposal for a central
endowment fund, if carried out, wonld
put the university en a solid founds
Hon for the present. The recant Wy
man and Procter gifts were anade to
(be graduate school solely, and these
funds are unavailable for Uw general
uses of the university.
President Hibben enumerates the
urgent needs and advises the board of
trustees that he la "engaged In making
detailed estimates to cover these vsri
ous schemes, which at present I am
able to mention only briefly." He sums
up the educational situation In his re
port when he says:
It In Impossible for us to stand still, sod
In moving forward the ve--y exigencies of
progress create an Increasing number of
Imperative demands upon our resources.
We have not only to pay this penalty of
our very prosperity Itself, but In addition
to this we are under great pressure, which
the other American universities are also
experiencing, owlns to the particular de
mands rf the age In which we live.
Within the last few years there has been
a mnst remarkable opening of new fields
of knowledge. With the disappearance of
the old frontiers and the discovery of new
territory to be possessed There arise on all
sides abundant opportunities of Investlga
tlon snd research, open not only to teach
ers. but alpo to students. These domains
of knowledge. If entered upon naturally,
provide for a better equipment of our un
dergraduate* as they go forth to under
take the wcrk and engnge In the struggle
of life All these opportunities create a
demand that mors branches of knowledge
be taught and that mors teachers be pro
vided for this purpose.

New TorU, .Tan. 10.—Speaking of the
plan put forward by I'raiik A. Munsey
for the foririntiou of a new party. into
which both the Republican party and
the new Progremfve party could enter
with honor to themselves. Theodora
Roosevelt came out with a signed
statement In which he put himself on
record as against a "combinutlon with
the Republican maclilne."
Mr. Roosevelt recited nt length the
Irreconcilable grievance of the Chi
rngo convention, lie said again that
Ihe nomlnntlon of Mr. Taft was "ac
complished by deliberate theft." He
Jeclared that the Progressive party
would gladly receive all Repabllcana
tnd Democrats who wished to su!>
icrlbe to Progressive principles, which
he described as the principle* of Abra
ham Lincoln.
The word the colonel nsed In refer
fin* to Mr. Mnnsey's plan of a "hold
ing party" for the Republicans and
Progressives was "comblnation." This,
It was pointed out by friends of Colo
nel Rooacvelt. was far from a definite
itand on his part against a fusion of
Progressive principles and Republicans
for a single local campaign against a
