that all three Initiative bills, which pro
pose state support of normals at Mon
mouth. Ashland and Weston, should be
passed. He maintains that one normal

creasing demand for trained teachers.
"Oregon has committed herself to di
rect legislation, and the children in the
schools of the state, the coming cltl
sens." he says, "should unquestionably
be given the best training and educa
tion which the state can afford. Good
training In the schools can not be had
with Inefficient or- poorly-trained teach
ers. The subject Is one calling for im
mediate and conclusive action."
By placing the schools under the man
agement of a state board of control
composed of the Governor, ' the Secre
tary of 8tate and the State Superin
tendent of Publlo Instruction, President
Campbell believes that the normal
schools will be removed permanently
from politics and that legislative "log
