BAR WORK AWAITS
Favorable Action on Nehalem
Harbor Improvement Is
PORT EXPENDITURE $65,000
With End of Present Kfin About
2000 Fret of TrUe Will- Be
Constructed High Tide Now
Give Jl Fret Bar Depth.
It 1 strongly beltevd that Major
Morrow. Corp. of Engineer. U. 8. A
alll compile) a favorable report on ths
proposed Government kid for the Im
provement of Nehalem Bar. Bar and
River, as a result of a meeting held at
his omre yesterday, but s such matters
arnot public until passed on at Waah
Ington. no Intimation haa been liven
Cn behalf of the Tort of Nehalem.
Commissioners Alley. F. A. Ro. the
latter being- aecre'ary of the board, and
t. H. Wheeler discussed i the situation.
Manager MrLeod. of the Hammond Lum
rer Company, which has interests In
the Nehalem region, was also present.
It was pointed out that when work ends
this season on the Jetty about SvQ feet
of the trestle will have been constructed
and approximately 6S.M expended by
Scope Not Decided.
It has not been determined whether
two Jetties will be built, but the plan Is
for the taxpayers to shoulder half of
the cost. At low water there Is a depth
of Ave feet on the bar, which aires 11
feet at hlffti tide. It Is desired that at
least IS feet be available, and there are
profrpretst that the Jetty project will fire
even 3 feet.
Fo far the Port of Nehalem boasts of
but one regular vessel plying- to Port
land, that being the tug Geo. K. VosburK.
which usually tows the seagoing barge
Nehalem. Even with Infrequent trip,
those battling for recognition by the
(iovemmer.e. assert that this season the
Vosburg had handled In and out of the
harbor tons of cargo. It la esti
mated that li.fltt.0fOifl feet of standing
timber la tributary to Nehalem, and
while the finished manufactured product
will move largely over the line of the
Paclflc Railway Navigation Company.
:he greatest proportion cut will be rough,
green material that cannot be shipped
under existing rail tariffs and must llnd
a market by water.
Improvement Is Vrjrent.
It Is Imperative In the Interest of the
future development of the timber Indus
try thai sufficient water be provided on
the bar and In the main channel, for the
accommodation of coastwise vessels, and
In that else, are many schooners that
are operated under charter to offshore
It Is pointed out that In the Improve
ment of Nehalem harbor there will be
another gain that follows the better
ment of all waterways, the regulation
of rail charges. As to the cost no
approximate estimate has been made,
for until offlelal Washington passes on
the recommendations of the resident
engineer, no surrey can be begun.
About II years ago the Government
engineers went over the project aa out
lined and 86ou.0flO was the figure set. Since
that time a suitable quarry haa been
located from which can be drawn rock
to be used la Jetty construction: freight
rates that will govern the Importation
of material are lower. Improved dredg
ing gear will- lessen the expense, and
other features will work to the advan
tage of the port In decreasing the outlay.
No Notice RecelTed.
Major Morrow hss received no offi
cial notification that the Hoard of Armr
Engineers of the rivers and harbors
romm!tte has pasaed favorably on the
Tillamook project, and recommend that
an expenditure of cH.O be made for
the building of the north Jetty, and tbe
construction of a suitable channel In
side, but aa soon aa he Is apprised of
the step he will discuss features of his
report. The decision means that the
Port of Tillamook and Port of Bay City
will be expected to shoulder one-half of
the expense. If taxpayers of those dis
tricts sgree to do so the next Congress
will embody the proposition in the rivers
and harbors bill and it will become a
The rough estimate for two jetties
was n.fc.wX but the south Jetty will
not be taken up In the original project.
Tillamook's request for assistance was
backed by statistics showing that the
stsndlng timber tributary to the harbor
waa about one-fourth In excesa of that
shown by the Nehalem Interesta It was
also shown that the Improvement of the
waterway for the accommodation of
deepwater vessels would be followed by
the establishment of additional sawmills
snd a general rehabilitation of the In
dustry, which Is now almost limited to
what Is required for local use.
At Coos Bay about Sow.oCO la available,
with which to continue dredging with
the Government dredge Oregon. As soon
as the legality of a bond issue Is
decided greater Impetus will be given
tbe project, that will Include the pur
chase of dock sites and a more extensive
scheme of harbor betterments.

When the Bank Line steamer Knmerie
sailed yesterday- from Tacoma she was

overland and went Into their temporary
Cows are not welcomed by the Chinese
members of the crew as carg-. owing to
Increased labor In providing feed and
raring for the stock. As all officers of
the Kumerlc are Caucasians they expect
to live high while at sea In having fresh
milk and cream, which will prove a wel
come diversion from the "canned tow"
that has been carried In the past. Offi
cers of the Luce tic. now loading here,
are chagrined that at least a portion of

REED COLLEGE IS
Triple Comparison of It With
Other Institutions Shows
Its High Standard.
ENTRANCE TEST STRICT
President Foster Discusses Merits of
System to Be Followed and De
clare First Yssr'f Work
Will Be High Grade.
Concentrstlon In its education work
will be the dominant purpose of Reed
College, which will inaugurate Its csreer
with SO freshmen students, no upper
classmen and seven high salaried In
structors September IB.
Intercollegiate athletics, fraternities,
sororities and most of the diversions
thst chsracterlxe the "college life" of
many other educational Institutions will
find no place in Reed College, declares
Dr. W. T. Foster, the president.
The -following statement was issued by
President Foster yesterday:
"Although Reed College does not want
large numbers. It Is under obligations to
give the public a definite Idea of Its rea
sonable expectations. Some people wish
to know upon what evidence the trus
tees base their confidence that Reed Col
lege will be prepared to do a high grade
of work In Its first year.
"In answer to this question it may be
said that expert In the field of higher
education are agreed that the most
trustworthy tests of the teaching effi
ciency of colleges, thst may be applied
to all Institutions, are these three: (1)
The standard of entrance requirements
and the rigor with which they are en
forced; (2) the average salary of the
teachers; (2) the ratio of atudents and
"Concerning the standard of entrance
requirements. It U significant thst Reed
College is the first in the country to
close both the doors which elsewhere
have been open to ill-prepared candi
dates entrance for conditional students
and for special atudents.
Strict Test Demanded.
"No one will be admitted to Reed
College unices he completely satisfies
the requirements for admission before
entrance; and no candidate falling to
meet this standard will get In. by the
back door, under the name of special
student. The presence of those who are
not fully qualified to pursue college
work Inevitably hinders .the progress of
those who are fully prepared, and thus
lowers the standard of work of the
"Of the 163 students who applied; pre
vious to August 1. for admission to the
first clsss of Reed College, 84 were de
clined because they could qualify only
as conditional or special students. Six
teen applied for advanced standing and
were declined, becsuse the college de
sires only a freshman class. Thirty
eight were admitted, and 13 are now
.under conslderstlon. The first class of
Reed College will be prepared to do a
high grade of work.
"Another of the tests of teaching effi
ciency Is the cost of the teaching. Other
things being equal, a college will at
tract strong ' teachers in proportion as
It pays in salaries whst strong teachers
are worth. Assuming that a college Is
under efficient manegement, it will get
sbout aa good teaching as It pays for.
The table given below Is taken from
reports of the Ca'rnegle Foundation for
the Advancement of Teaching, and
shows the average salaries paid for
teaching at various Institutions. The
figure for Reed College is the aversge
aalary approved for the seven men who
will begin their teaching September 18.

"In estimating the relative teaching
efficiency of colleges, the data con
cerning cost of Instruction per student
and aversge salaries of teachers should
be supplemented by a consideration of
the ratio of students - and teachers.
The chief superiority of the small col
lege Is supposed to be the greater op
portunity It affords for daily, personal
contact between students as individ
uals and teachers who are profoundly
interested in them as Individuals. The
value of such personal relations de
pends, in the first Instance, on the
real Ideals of thi college and the char
acter of the men it attracts as teach
era But, assuming that the alms of
the college and its salary schedule are
sufficient to attract the best men. then
the opportunities for such personal
contact are inversely proportional to
the slse of the classes. Considered in
this way, some of the larger institu
tions are found to offer advantages
superior to those of some of the smaller
College Standing Assured.
"This ratio of the number of In
structors and the number of students
Is of great Importance. Much of the
adverse criticism which has been so
abundant of late in dlscuylons of the
American College, haa been directed
against the practice of herding stu
dents in large lecture courses in which
real teaching is Impossible. Other
things being equal, that Institution will
offer the most effective teaching which
shows the lowest ratio of students and
"From the discussion Just presented
of three vital tests of teaching effi
ciency. It Is evident that Reed College
ought to stand high. In Its initial year,
as an education Institution. Indeed, Its
dominant purpose Is concentration in
its educational work. As a social In
stitution, as an athletic Institution, as
an historic institution, it will have no
standing whatever. Intercollegiate
athletics, fraternities, sororities, and
most of the diversions that men are
pleased to call 'college life," as distin
guished from college work, will have
no place in Reed College."
