UP TO THE LEGISLATURE
REGENTS CAiJ GO NO FURTHER IN
ATHLETIC FIELD PURCHASE.
MONEY MUST BE APPROPRIATED
Regents Have Acquired Titto to Four
Lot Fronting on T Street
North of the Unlver- .,
, By purchasing two. additional lots
fronting on T street north of tho uni
versity .campus tho university regents
h.av-3 jaow como Into possession of four
150-foot lots In tho block which It
desires to acquire for use ns an ath
letic flold and military parade ground.
Further than this tho regents cannot
go without financial aid from tho leg
islature. At Its recent mooting tho board of
regents resolved to accept tho valua
tion placed by appraisers on tho
T strcot property and to buy tho two
lots hi question. Some tlmo ago ap
praisers were appointed to fix a figure
on tho lots so that the regents could
buy thorn frdm tho owpoi's. Tho pos
BOBBors of tho land hold out for what
tho regonts deemed an exorbitant
price. TheBO appraisers inspected tho
block nod fixed a valuation on tho lots
and also placed an estimato on tho
damago to tho buBiness enterprise at
present located on them.
Thought Would Appeal.
The appraised valuation was still
too high In the opinion of some of tho
regents and for a timo It seemed that
tho board would appeal. At tho last
meetlrig, howover, tho board decided
, to accopt tho flgureB returned by tho
appraisers and to buy in tho land at
that figure. This they are able to do
with tho money now In their posses
sion. By this putchaBO tho regents acquire
title to two lots one hundred and fifty
foot in depth. This gives tho board a
row of four lots fronting on T street
between Tenth and Eleventh. There
are twelve lots In a clty.block, so that
the regents now possess only one-third
of the ground necessary to an athletic
and military field. The land 1b hold
at a high price and the board cannot
buy further lots without aid from tho
legislature. Thus far the athletic as
sociation has paid a part of tho price
of one1 lot and tho regents have paid
tho balance. A further drain on tholr
treasury is not possible.
fho regonts will probably embody
the whole matter la their biennial re
port which is to bo rendered to tho
governor and legislature soon and
they will at that tlmo make a specific
request tor further funds. Tho mattor
wi)l then be up to tho legislature for
action. If it' docs not seo fit to appropriate-
sufficient funds for tho .purchase
of tho field it may find itsolf undo'r
th'o necessity of appropriating a great
or amount to tho university general
fund. The' national government has
threatened to withdraw its appropria
tion to the state institution which Is
made conditionally upon the main
tenance of a military department If a
suitable parade ground is not provided
for. In this case the university would
bo deprived of an income of several
thousand dollars which it can ill afford
to lose. The legislature would have to
mako this Up in order that the annual
"Income of the school would not show
t a distinct j0ss,; -:
Must Still Walt. t
In any case it seems that1 tho ath
letics of the university will not have
a suitablo field 'for next spring :si works
Even If the legislature should act at
once on tho appropriation tho work
vof clearing the" ground of buildings
and of tanking tho necossary improve
ments could not bo finished in time for"
tho spring events. It is prbbablo that
the matter will go ovor. to tho lattor
part of tho session and tho work will
then be dolayod till summer.
The four lots which are alroady In
.the possession of tho regonts will in
the meantime be put to such usos as
will return tho most good. Tho land
may bo rented for tho benefit of the
university coffers or it Is posslblo that
jomc. other uso will be -mado of tho
buildings now on It.
'iflc matter of selecting a successor
to Chancellor Andrews Is In tho hands
of tho executlVo commlttoo of tho
board of regents, according to a state
ment mado yeBtorday by Socrotary
Dales. ThlB commltteo will look about
for BUltablo matorlal and will prob
ably report to tho board at tho next
regular mooting, which will be held
December 8. At this tlmo tho board
will discuss tho nominations of tho
committee and it Ib possibio that tho
position will at tnat tlmo oo tendored.

REV. QILMORE TO STUDENTS.
Talks Before Rhetoric Class on "Ora
tors and Oratory."
Tho combined divisions or rhotoric
35 yostorday listonod to Rovorond Mr.
Gllmoro of tho United Presbyterian
church, dellvor his Interesting lecture,
"Orators and Oratory," in Room U,
106. Mr. Gllmoro Is an old classmato
of Profossor Howoll at tho Emerson
Collego of Oratory; Boston, and It
was at hor suggestion that Mr. Gll
moro Bpokc to thoso students Inter
ested In oratory and elocution, on tho
experiences he has had in this lino
Mr. Gllmoro is a thorough studoiit' of
oratory and orators and an ardent
supportor of tho methods ombodied in
tho Emorson systom, of which he is
n loyal adherent.
Mr. Gllmoro conclsoly defined ora
tory as public speech, pros6nt!ng vital
truth, with a view of porsuaslon.
Public speech, vital truth, and por
suaslon wore tho thrco divisions ho
made of his talk. Ho flret Halkod of
tho different kinds of public speech
and tho different stylos of orators.
ti,e' told "ot 'tho characteristics n&es-
fry lor mo pumic spcaKor to pos
sess; He considered physical require
ments and natural ability as one, of
the principal requisites- f or the- suc
cessful spoaker. WalterClianaTer was
.quoted, as saying that a- man. with a
,largo, bulging oyo novor-mado nn
omlnent locturer, but tho successful
one was tho person with tho small,
shrewd eye. Physical ability Ib one
of tho main characteristics which dis
tinguish the eminent speakor. Tho
voice, physic and gonoral carriage
can be successfully developed at such
institutions as tho Emerson.-instlttrttv
and without this dovolopment no
spoaker can be entertaining. ' .' '
Tho principal theme which was the
foundation of tho whole lecture was
that a man should live his part "If
ho feels and lives tho part ho portrays
ho can act ft successfully. Ho must
havo a conception of what he spoakcC
or ho Is Hablo to be a failure."" Mr.
Gllmoro then took up sevoral Incidental
which illustrated his-points. Ho snoko
of A. J: Young, Lisbon, Ohio, who, ho
says, Has .tho power to color a single
word' in such a mannor "as to portray
a wholo scone. Waltor Chandler is
an orator of tho ponderous typo, pre?
sentlng only what is well prepared.
His subjects are Important but thoy
are harder to listen to than the form
er, which are colored with beautiful
metaphores and pootical similes. . J
Mr. Gllmoro considered 'Major
Henry C. Dain-, In "Naval Battles of
tho War,"' as tho highest type of or
atpr ho has over listened to. All
of these men 'are successful because
they llvo their part, especially the last
who, notwithstanding tho fact that he
delivers tho same-lecture at least 300
timos each .year, yet allows tho
incidents of which ho tells to be
come so real that at times ho breaks
down and cries at tho pathetic 'remem
brance of certain events. '
In closing Mr, Gllmoro said that all
public speech was meant tb" persuade.
It Is told "of tho Son o'f -Man, 'that
i'never man so spake." He explained
this .by tho .f act. that-Christ-possessed
tho power persuasion, which' jnade
him sq poyrorful." Without the ability
to persuade a lecturer' has .little' suc
cess as a reward for 'his pains.
