In so far as members of the student body can speak of the university in terms of commendation shall be glad to have them do so, and I hope they can urge upon members of the legislature tho needs of the university as indicated by their I experience as students. "The first need of th university is for more recitation rooms, laboratories and offices. When these are supplied the welfare requirements of the student body should be met, such as a great dining hall, dormitories and a general studen building. The university needs' in addition to recitation and laboratory buildings, better library facilities, an auditorium and more land. Undoubtedly, most of the wants are already known to the students and the state is beginning to realize the worth of the institution The students, thereand its needs. fore, can help in bringing to the atfriends, relatives and tention of their members of the legislature the needs of the university. I am sure that they will do that thing. "The very best wishes for the holiday season." FRANK L. McVEY, President.
