true ted in the parkthe historical mu

sence of Governor Glllett, who Is now
in the east. Every . members of the
legislature from Southern California
will be present.
CHANGE IN NAME FLANNKD
President Bowen desires to withhold
the names that have been suggesetd
for the park. He said last night that
the name by which the park will here
after be known had not been decided.
He gave as a reason for the change
the fact that "agricultural" no longer
is representative of the true purposes
of the grounds and that therefore a
more suitable name would be chosen.
The state exposition, historical mu
seum and art gallery and armory
buildings are one-third completed.
. Their combined cost will be $780,000, to
gether with the gardens and grounds
that will surround them. « The base
ments, foundations and steel work are
already completed and the structures
are now rapidly assuming shape.
The buildings will form a great T.
From a rotunda of marble three wings
branch off, the center wing from the
entrance to the art gallery. The other
wings will be occupied by the historical
and scientific galleries and the armory.
Sunken gardens of great beauty and
variety, showing the verdure of semi
tropic j regions, will surround the
buildings. In fact everything con
nected with the enterprise will be illus
trative of Southern California, The
park commission has completed plans
and details for the gardens. NT-
It is the Intention of the authorities
to have the museum, Art and scientific
galleries house a rare collection gath
ered from all parts of the state. It Is
said that numerous offers have been
made by the wealthier residents of the
state of collections they have gath
ered from all sources, and the board
does not expect to have any difficulty
in stocking the museum and art gal
