Governor Cummins and Stat Superln tendent R. C. Barrett, ex-ofnelo members of the Board of Regents of the State unl verslty, have returned from Iowa City, where they attended the meeting yesterday. Superintendent Barrett was much elated with the plans revealed at the meeting as to tho future of the university in the way of securing a campus adapted to the growth of the school. Briefly stated, this consists of securing all ths grounds between the main buildings and the river, damming the latter and parking both side. The main building of the university is about eighty rods from the river and the regents already have holdings of several lots between those points. There is an in cllne of about seventy-lire feet between the buildings and the river and it is planned to terrace this with a broad boulevard ex tending through. This ground now la well built up, but the buildings are not of a substantial character and It is believed can be had at reasonable rates. The board yes terday took action by instructing the ex ecutlve committee to get options on the premiers. It has developed that it waa th reveal Ing of these plans that caused the death of the rumors at the last session of the leg is la tur tbst the university .would eventu ally be forced to move beyond the corner , ate limits of the city for the location of ail buildings erected In' the future. The plsa as now stated 1 regarded as Ideal by all woo have seen the plat prepared. So far aa the new medical buildings are concerned It is practically decided that these will be built In the rear of the main buildings on the block and one-half donated by the city and on which the hospital Duuainga are now situated. It Is consld ered desirable that the medical building and the hospital be In proximity to each other. Instead of one large building the indications are that three will be erected, me total cost being about $125,000. Plan will bo made by the building committee sc cordlngly. The chemical and dissecting de psnmenis win De in one and the other de partment distributed between the other two. Thla Is in accordance with the modern idea or what a college of medicine ahnnM be. The committee In charge consists of judge w. i. Bsbb of Mount Pleasant P K Holbrook of Onawa and Alonzo Abernathy ui usage. Visit State Institutions. Chairman Cownl and Judge Kinae. the oiner memner of th State Board of Con trol, visited all of the state Institutions witnin th last fortnight. They devoted some time to the purchase of the new land authorized by the state legislature at th last session. They were only able te make contracts at Davenport and Clarinda. At Olenwood aad Mount Pleasant It was found mat tne owner of land near the InstHu lions had taken advantage of th time In tervening between the public announce ment of the authority to purchase given me ooara py the legislature, with the re suit that prices hsvs been raised. The members of the bosrd state they will not anew tne state to be bled and that the own en will come to their prices or keep their lend. Inasmuch ss It is not necessary for the land to be adjacent to th farm, it I oeuevea th state ran get reasonabi prices. Contracts wer entered into for eighty acre of land at Davenport, making a total of 262 acres at that place. Land was also purchased at Clarlada. On hundred acre were bought at $75 and 206 and a fraction over at $96 aa acre. This will make a farm at that .institution of a fraction over 858 acres, as the farm originally consisted or 661H seres. The high standard of perfection of ststs schools for th deaf and dumb and th fee ble minded attained under the Board of Control system Is having a serious draw back. 6 great a reputation for proficiency has been mad that' eastern schools ar coming to Iowa in search of teschers and offering greater salaries than ths stat au thorizes th board to pay. Considerable difficulty has been had in holding many of the best teachers, three having departed for the east in the last year. While the board was. at Council Bluffs President Gallandet of the Gallandet Col lego for the Deaf at Washington, which Is recognized as the foremost college of Its kind in ths country, was there.
