Complete Outfit, Five Irayloads, of
Old Oregon State Journal, Is
Turned Over to State Uni

EUGENE, Or., June 19. (Special.)
Three days ago President P. L.
Campbell, of the University of Oregon,
told the alumni at their annual ban
o.uet that donations and bejusts
would be acceptable to the State Uni
versity at this time. Yesterday the
first response came and it was of an
unexpected kind. The department of
journalism was the Denericiarj -.
The complete plant of the old-time
Oregon State Journal, which, for 45
years, was a conspicuous factor in the
Oregon newspaper field, was yesterday
placed at the disposal of the journal
ism department by W. It. Kincaid, of
Kugene, representing his tatner, -i . rt.
Kincaid. of Portland. The elder Kin
caid was owner and editor of the Ore
gon State Journal from 1S64 to 1909
when the publisher retired and th
paper was suspended. Today the mass
of material that was assembled by
Mr. Kincaid during the half century in
which he was engaged in Journalism
was hauled to the university. It occu
pied five drayloads.
In the outfit is a relic the depart
ment of journalism values highly the
l'irst newspaper press brought to the
state. The first press of any kind that
came to Oregon is said to have been
the mission jobber that was brought
from the Sandwich Island in 1S39, but
the first newspaper press came around
the Horn a few years later, and upon
It Oregon's first copy of a secular
newspaper was turned out on Febru
ary 5, 1846. at Oregon City. From 1846
to 1909, whn Mr. Kincaid ceased to
pull off the Oregon State Journal on It.
the press did yeoman duty. Its his
tory will be framed and hung beside it
at "the University.
Judge Kincaid, who had lived a rig
orous life as freighter and prospector
In California and Oregon, from 1853 to
1860. purchased at Canyon City, Or., a
paper, changing Its name to the Oregon
Statesman which name continued until
the Statesman died. The Statesman
was a powerful political spokesman at
all times. The Kincaid family purposes
making up files of It for the entire
45 years one of which is to go to the
university department of Journalism.
The ancient press may ultimately go to
the Oregon Historical Society.
Mr. Kincaid was always a liberal
purchaser. and although at times
"fonts" have been "Junked," the dray
had 119 cases to haul to the university
campus. prasses," 'leads," "galleys"
and other technical printing material
The $800 appropriated this week by
the university board of regents to
purchase the nucleus of a printing
plant, instead of being devoted to pri
mary material, can now be used to sup
plement the Kincaid plant. This will
put the department in much better po
sition for its first year of laboratory
work than It expected.

To the Man With an Open Mind
to a man who learns a truth
this truth. To such a man the Case Car affords a world of
contrasts and comparisions. Here is a car built by a concern
that has spent over seventy years in satisfying men. All over
the world in every country the name Case is known as a
standard of excellence.
To the man who wants reat value we say no greater satis
faction can be his than that derived from a Case Car.
But it is not a matter of making an investigation any time. Only
a few "30's" remain allotted to this territory. Which means
that only a few men can partake of the opportunity to get this
car now. We even fear some of our cars will be demanded
by other territories.
You know, of course, the excellence of Case design and Case
workmanship. Let us show you where we spend where
others must save. We sincerely believe no other car at the price
can compare, item for item, with this Case 30. Especially
when you figure in the added equipment we include as regular,
such as Extra Tire and Extra Inner Tube on Rim with Tire
Cover, Weed Non-Skid Tire Chains and 8-Day Clock.
Delay is expensive. We advise all men who are about to
make up their minds to buy cars, to come in at once, or to
make an appointment, by telephone, for demonstration.
