golons Will lie Asked to Match
Tuition Fund of $75,000 for Con
struction of Now Men's
"We hope the legislature will be
able to meet the pressing need of a
gymnasium for the men by off-set
ting the $75,000 special tuition fees
paid by the boys and girls with the
appropriation of a like amount, as
has been done in the erection of some
Of the state university buildings,"
said President I-;, O. Holland of the
State College of Washington, discuss
ing the rumor that is going about, the
campus that sod is to be broken this
coming spring at the west end of
Rogers field for this purpose.
"Two years ago the Associated
Students, feeling greatly the need of
anew gymnasium, volunteered a $10
tuition fee, proposing that the re
gents put aside this money until it
amounted to enough to begin con
struction. They asked that the prece
dent established at the University of
Washington and some other institu
tions, be followed here, the legisla
ture being asked to duplicate the stu
dent fees, going 'halvers' on the ex
"At the present time the girls have
only cramped quarters in the attic
of the old Administration building
for their gymnasium work. Some of
them, after climbing the three flights
of stairs to their lockers up there,
have to go down again, cross the
campus, and climb again three still
longer flights to a classroom at the
top of the unfinished Mechanic Arts
building. When the new building is
up the present men's gymnasium,
which is now so crowded that we
have to excuse seniors from the re
quired work, will be turned over to
the women.
"The regents are persuaded that
such a building as the students have
asked for will shortly be a necessity
to maintain proper health conditions.
They have therefore agreed to the
student request, and the budget
which will he submitted to the legis
lature for appropriation includes an
item of $74,882.25 to offset tuitions
paid by the students.
"This is nearly the only one of the
land grant colleges which charge a
tuition fee. As many of the students
who volunteered this extra burden to
their finances are self-supporting
(84 per cent of the men last, year
earned all of some portion of their
expenses) we feel sure the legislature
will be willing to do everything they
possibly can to meet their sacrifice
half way."

; KxempUfie* Principles of Pythian Ism '
in Daily Life—Presented With
CheM of Silver
In recognition of his everyday ex-1
emplification, in a practical way, of j
the principles on which the order
Knights of Pythias is founded C. N.
Curtis was last Monday evening pre-1
sented with an elegant chest of sil
ver by Evening Star Lodge No. 20. |
The presentation was in keeping
with the policy of the lodge of ex!
pressing in a material way, at each |
Christmas season, its appreciation to i
the member who, throughout the
preceding year, lias best illustrated
in his daily life the principles of (
friendship, charity and benevolence.
In presenting the silver Monday
evening attention was called to the
unselfish service given by Mr. Curtis
throughout his entire residence in i
Pullman in the interests of his fel- |
lowmen and the community. Me |
has been closely identified with
every movement tending to promote
the best Interests of the community
and its people, or to relieve suffer-.
ing or distress. He has emulated j
the teachings of the Pythian ritual |
and has brought credit and honor
to the order.
Mr. Curtis is the father of the
Roy Scout movement In Whitman
county, acknowledged to be one of |
the greatest movements for better i
citizenship of the present day. With
••: small beginning in Pullman, the
movement has grown until today the
Palouse council, comprising Whit
man and Latah counties, ranks as
the most progressive in the entire
country, with upwards of 500 boys
enrolled in the great work for indi
vidual betterment. Tie is at present
chairman of the local brunch of the
Red Cross, and. by reason of his
position in that organization, direc
tor of all local relief work. |
Mr. Curtis holds membership in
the chamber of commerce, the Ki
wnnis club and several fraternal or
ganizations, in all of which he ex
erts a powerful Influence for the
good, not only of the organization,
tun of he community and all man
kind. By reason of his affiliation
with many live civic, charitable and
religious organizations of the city
and his deep Interest In all progres
sive movements, he is given much
work to do aside from his regular
duties, and probably receives more
committee assignments in a year's
.time than any other citizen. In all
of this work his effort are untiring
and uniformly successful.
In the opinion of the members of
Evening Star lodge he has 'lived the
Pythian ritual" and is fully deserv
ing of the signal honor bestowed
upon him by his lodge broth
The gift came as a complete sur
prise to Mr. Curtis and he expressed
his appreciation in a fitting way, yet
modestly avowed that he had done
nothing to warrant the recognition
Edward W. Fair, a graduate of
the State College, from Albion, and
