CHANGE IN NAME.
Pacific University May Become More
Modest, It Is Said.
Prof. Shlppee, professor of history
in Pacific University at Forest Grove,
spoke on "Christian Education" at the
Congregational church Sunday even
ing. He told the story of the ambi
tions of those good people who rounJ
ed Pacific University, and of their
dreams of making It a great unlver
slty. But times had changed in the
last quarter century, he said, and it Is
the small and personally directed col
lege rather than the big university
that Is doing the better personal work
and It Is the ambition of the wiser
men at Pacific University to see that
college doing strong personal work.
With that In view the school baa It In
mind to change the name to Marsh
College. In token of honor to Its flrtt
president. The announcement of the
change In name may be made public
at any time. '
