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

, 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

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

mat tne owner of land near the InstHu

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
