With Exodus of Regular Stu
dents Commences Arrival of
Summer Attendants.
Education, Increase of Ministerial
Efficiency and Betterment off
Rural School Conditions to
Be Specially Considered.
June 7. (Special.) Exit the regular
collegiate year at the University of
Oregon, with the terror of the final
examinations, the festivities of com
mencement time and the exodus of the
students to their Summer occupations.
Enter the University Summer School,
with its programme of lectures by
many eminent savants of the country
and its influx of mature students from
all parts of the state.
The coming session of the Summer
school Is the ninth. Each year has seen
an increase In the strength of the fac
ulty and enrollment of students, and
the expectation of President Campbell
and Dr. Joseph Schafer, the director,
that the growth will be continued and
that the coming session will surpass
its predecessors, promises to be re
alized. Registrar Tiffany has received
sufficient inquiries to augur a larger
enrollment than that of last year.
Enrollment of 200 Expected.
It is estimated that this enrollment
will not fall short of 200, whereas the
total for last Summer was 171. This
was a gain cf 23 over the 1911 figures.
The last regular university classes
for the year were held yesterday and
the undergraduates are preparing for
the Inquisition of next week. Many of
them will leave as soon as they have
finished their last examination. The
commencement exercises, beginning
June 14 and closing June 18, will, how
ever, detain a large number of the stu
dents, in addition to attracting the
usual number of visitors.
Summer school will open June 23 and
close August 1, leaving an intermission
of only ten days between the finale
of the collegiate year and the overture
to the special session. Many students
who have fallen behind in their work
during this or past semesters will make
the Summer session an asylum in which
to repair their fortunes. The majority
of the Summer student body, however,
will consist of mature men and women
teachers and those engaged In other
professions and in business.
Three Conferences Planned.
Three special conferences are planned
by the Summer school management for
the week beginning July 21. They will
be on the -subjects of education, the in
creasing of ministerial efficiency and
the betterment of rural school condi
tions, respectively.
A special feature, introduced this year
for the first time, is the consideration
of practical problems of civic life, such
as the relation of the individual to so
ciety, social redemption, the history
and civil government of Oregon, civic
biology, good roads and education with
a view to better citizenship.
The Summer school as a Chautauqua
Assembly is being featured by this
year's management.

While the two Jetties have deepened

ent the north Jetty should be extended
about a mile In order to reach the crest
of the bar and accomplish the best re

continuing appropriation secured for
the work this year, a great saving will
be made, as the loss would be heavy
if work on the bar was allowed to stop

Superintendent I. R. Ackerraan Re
ceives Hearty Reception in Town
Where He Began Career.
MMINNVILLE, Or.. June 7. (Spe
cial.) Perhaps Superintendent L. It
Alderman has never received a more
hearty welcome in his life than he re
ceived in McMinnvllle last night when
he addressed the graduating class of
the McMinnvllle High School. Mr. Al
derman began his work as an educator
in this town, coming here directly from
his graduation at the University of
Oregon to take charge of the schools
about 13 years ago. McMinvtlle people
have always retained a deep interest
in his career.
The keynote of his speech was the
importance of the habits and virtues
necessary for developing the highest
type of men and women. Not how
much Latin or mathematics, but how
well is the student fitted for life should
be the questions asked of graduates,
he said. The habits of industry, Mr.
Alderman continued,- were two of the
most vital importance in determining
the usefulness and happiness of men
and women, and he paid a high tribute
to the School Board of McMinnvllle
for the work which is being done in
the local schools along industrial lines.
A pretty part of the exercises was
the rising of the 33 graduates in re
sponse to a request of their valedic
torian. Homer Stewart, to take a solemn
pledge to repay, by their manner of
life, all that had been done by par
ents, community and the state to make
their graduation possible. The eyes of
many of the class were dim when Mr.
Alderman referred to this part of the
ceremony and feelingly reminded them
of the sacrifice which had been made
by many of their parents to give them
a high school education. "The time to
repay this sacrifice," said the speaker,
"is not 10 or 15 years from now, but
This Is the largest class yet grad
uated from the local high school, which

225 in three years.
