AS TRUE AS EVER.
Burton Sure Appropria
tions Will Pass
THOUGH TIME IS SHORT
House Begins Consideration
and Will Soon Act
FATE RESTS WITH SENATE
Only Danger Is That Load of Amend
ments May Sink It in the
Upper House, but That
Is Not Expected.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash
ington, Feb. 22. Chairman Burton, of the
House river and harbors committee, ex
pressed the belief today that his bill,
consideration o which was begun in the
House this morning, will pass both houses
and become law before March 4.
There has been a growing fear that this
bill would be sidetracked, not only be
cause of the demand of party leaders for
economy, but because of the unpre
ccdcntcdly late date In bringing it up for
consideration. Only nine days remain to
pass it through both houses and through
conference, less time than was ever be
fore given any river and harbor bill.
Burton, however, says the shortage of
time is a strong factor in favor of the
passage of the bill. It will Induce the
Senate to make only slight amendments,
for fear of losing what Is proposed by
the House. He says that unless the
Senate loads the bill down with largo
amendments, it will pass without ma
terial objection, carrying practically the
appropriations agreed to by the House

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
Ington, Feb. 22. Much to Senator Foster's
Alsapolntment no report waB made today

character: but it can be of enormous us tn
supplementing both. It 1 a source of Just
Bride to even' American that our people have
o consistently ficted In accordance frith Wash
ington's principle of promoting; Institutions
for the diffusion of knowledge. There Is noth
ing dearer to our hearts than our public school
system, by -which free primary education la
provided for everyone within our border. The
higher education, such as la provided by
the University of Pennsylvania and kindred
bodies, not only confers great benefits to
those able to take advantage of it, but en
tails upon them corresponding duties.
Duty of Citizen to Nation.
The men who founded this Nation had to
deal with theories of government and the
fundamental principles or free Institutions.
We are now concerned with a different set
of questions, for the Republic has been
firmly established. Its principles thor
oughly .tested and fully approved. To
merely political issues havo succeeded
those of grave social and economic Im
portance, the solution of which demands
the best efforts of tho best men. we have
a right to expect that a wise and leading
part In the effort to attain this solution
will bo taken by those who have been ex
ceptionally blessed In the matter of ob
taining an education. That college grad
uate Is but a poor creature who does not
feel when he has left college that he has
received something for which he owes a
return. What he thus owes he can as a
rule only pay by tho way he bears himself
through life. It Is but occasionally that a
college graduate can do much outright
for hla alma mater; he can best repay her
by living a life that will reflect credit upon
her. by so carrying himself as a citizen that
men shall see that the years spent In train
ing him have not been wasted. The edu
cated man is entitled to no special privilege,
save the inestimable privilege of trying to
show that his education enables him to
ake the lead In striving to guide his fel
lows aright In the difficult task which Is
set to us of the twentieth century. The
problems before us today are very com
plex, and are widely different from thos
which the men or Washington's generation
had to face; but we can overcome them
surely, and we can overcome them only, if
we approach them in the spirit which Wash
ington and Washington's great supporters
brought to bear upon the problems of their
day the spirit of sanity and of courage.
the spirit which combines hard common
cense with the loftiest Idealism.
Cheers for Three Nations.
After the degrees had been conferred.
the student body, at the suggestion of
Provost Harrison, gave three cheers for
America, England and Germany.
