F ' , Q ,f f . . . . .2 r"'f:vc-wf,afa11g-,-f' f The outcome was the erection of a three-story brick building, largely - Q? f ,J through the benevolence of Jacob Saum, for whom it was named. This ,PZ " ' Y' lf f structure holds a history within itself. It was first used as a building for young men, then for a ladies' dormitoryg finally, it has been converted into a science hall. The first floor of this hall is devoted wholly to biology and geology. The laboratory and lecture-room are well equipped with appara- tus and specimens. The second floor is devoted to physics, and the third to chemistry. Besides the main labora- tory and lecture-room, there are other small rooms equipped for those who desire to specialize along this line.

The main College building, as it now stands, was erected in 1871. It is of Gothic style of architecture and three stories in height. The first floor contains recitation-rooms, art-rooms, and the chapel, which has been so much improved during the past year that the friends of Otterbein will scarcely recognize it when they again return. The walls have been nicely frescoed by the best artists that could be secured. This improvement has been made through the liberality of Columbus friends, as an expression of kind feeling toward the university. The second door contains, besides recitation-rooms, an excellent library, in which there are reading-tables supplied with the best current magazines and daily papers. This year an unusually large number of books have been added. The third floor contains four society halls, which are the pride of the institution on account of their beauty. They are acknowledged to be equal to any in the State. In 1888, a need of the university Was met in the securing of a building to be used as a conservatory of music. This department was first put under the management of Charles E. Davis. but later it has been in successive charge of Fredrick Neddermeyer, Robert A. Morrow, W. B. Kinnear, Herman Ebeling, and Gustav Meyer. The last has been director since 1895. The Association Building, erected in 1893, is one of which we are justly proud, on account of its architecture, and because it was the first building of its kind in the State. lt will always be a monument to the devotion of the students, who did much in furnishing the means for its construction. At different times it has been handsomely refurnished and ornamented by the efforts of the students, until the association rooms have been made to harmo- nize with the exterior. The gymnasium has become a much used part of the building. Regular instructors have been secured for the girls as well as for the boys, and systematic exercise is insisted upon by the faculty. To the regular college terms a summer session was added last year. Owing to its success, which exceeded all expectation, it is probable that this will be a regular feature of the College hereafter. By this mere glance at Ctterbein, all may see that she has made rapid strides to the front under the leadership of such men as Griflith, Davis, Owen, Eberly, Thompson, Garst, Bowersox, Sanders. and Scott. We have faith to believe that in years to come, she will increase and broaden her inliuence for good in the Church and in the world. f 2 cf , 1 f i i- 1 'ty T - 1 ' 'F ' -'iiwQ:Ax'i ff J, '- f, X-Sf Xfw"w1:... sisgvegi, K1 .W N , . wg. 1 wa-,.,.f1,i.f -'Bm tif N X. .iq fwL,g,31.,i tf,l,17gG',f?"'1e5 M Q lf-nf ,fara- gegagwisgg: , 13:1 trigger. ,"1.w:.Mmww 'RX "Qi-2.
