A university, believes President
Erb, should attract students main
ly by the established advantages
it has there to offer. They are not
“shanghaider,” as he put it, into
attending college, and considering
that, they should come with the
idea of getting the best from what
is there, not trying to make the
school over for each individual.
“I shudder to think what such
a plan might lead to,” the presi
dent said. “For instance, differ
ences in opinions among students
themselves would be confusing.”
Most generally opinions are upt at
all unanimous. This lack of unity
among the students themselves

i to the establishment of such a

Gov. Martin
The allocation by the President of funds for the
construction of the Bonneville project was, in a
large measure, due to the activities of General Mar
tin while serving this State as a member of Congress.
Declaring that the project should be adminis
tered for the best interests of all the people in the
State, the Governor has, to this end, pledged himself
to co-operate with the President and Administrator
Ross in every way possible.
It was largely through his efforts that ship locks
were included in the Bonneville project—thus mak
ing it possible for sea-going* vessels to take on and
deliver cargoes as far up stream as The Dalles. lie
has never ceased his fight for the canalization of the
Upper Columbia in order that the grain growers and
shippers of the Inland Empire may enjoy such
favorable rates as are obtained through water com
