President V. J. Kerr Declares That
Gift Is Characteristic of Man
Associated With School Since
Foundation in 188S.
The J. T. Apperson Agricultural Col
lege Educational Fund, amounting to
between $25,000 and $40,000, will be a
perpetual endowment, administered by
the State Land Board of Oregon, for
trte assistance of worthy young men
and women "who are actual bona fide
residents of the state of Oregon, and
who would otherwise be unable to
bear the expense of a collegiate course
at the Oreaon Agricultural College."
This was the announcement made at
p. recent convocation by President W.
J. Kerr, who. In explaining the terms
of the endowment, as embodied In the
will of Regent J. T. Apperson. who died
.t his home at Park Place on April 3,
took occasion to review briefly the
relations of Captain Apperson to the
college, and the significance of bis
contribution to Its deve-lopment.
Gift Called Constructive.
"His gift." said President Kerr. "Is
typical of the man. It is constructive,
far-seeing and helpful rather than
lavish. It alms at self-development
rather than self-satisfaction; and it
Involves, both In Its management and
its service to the Individual student,
B. careful husbanding of resources.
"Judged by the opulent standards of
American fortunes today. Captain Ap
person was not a wealthy man. But he
was rich in the experiences that make
for essential success, and he knew how
to make these experiences count In
helping others. His estate, by his own
conservative estimate, was worth from
$80,000 to $100,000.
"Of this estate, after providing gen
. erously for his loved ones, he has do
nated resources estimated to amount to
between $25,000 and $40,000. which shall
be a cumulative. Irreducible fund, the
Income of which only will be lent to
needy students of this institution at a.
low rate of Interest."
Bequest to Be Permanent.
President Kerr called attention to
the earnestness of Regent Apperson's
desire to make his bequest both a safe
and permanent one. that he might aid
thn largest number of worthy young
men and women to get an education
fit the institution that he had served
bo devotedly as a regent since its
foundation in 1885,
Throughout that long period of serv
ice. President Kerr declared, he be
came more deeply Impressed from year
to year with the value of the college
training to the youths of the state, par
ticularly those whose support from
home was limited and whose efforts
to complete the course were therefore
the more strenuous and anxious.
That none of these, whose habits
wero wholesome and whose purposes
were high, might fall by the wayside,
he sought President Kerr's advice.
nearly five years ago, "In formulating
a. pian to give them help and at th
same time, give them strength, and
Flan Embodied In Will,
The result was the plan embodied in
his will. It provides a fund, as already
Indicated, which shall be administered
by the Statf Land Board, an official
organization which has had abundant
experience in the handling of large
resources in a conservative and thor
oughly responsible way.
rie thus safeguarded his fund not
only against private calamity and spec
ulation, but also against any suspicion
or favoritism, mismanagement or fraud.
In placing the responsibility of rec
ommending students for the benefits
oc the fund in the hands of the
rotate superintendent of Public Instruc
tion and the president of the Oregon
Agricultural College,-, Mr. ADDerson
egain showed his far-sghted desire for
permanence and rnsponslbllity In the
dumimstration or tils funds.

An Urgent Appeal to You to Do
"YOUR BIT" for the Relief of
1,250,000 HOMELESS, STARV
ING BELGIAN CHILDREN
It has been said "Charity Begins at Home." No truer
words were ever uttered. The poor are always with us,
and must be assisted. Humanity demands it. The
existence of the American Nation and people was never
menaced by such serious conditions as those which
have prevailed in war-ridden Belgium since the begin
ning of the great European conflict. History records
no such suffering of humanity. Pictures and words
can never describe what has taken place in that little
country "across the water." America, a Nation of
humane principles, has been sacredly performing her
part of the great and good work of relief . ' Shall we,
then, at the time when hunger stalks with still heavier
stride, furl our banner of humanity and leave these
"1,250,000 starving, homeless children to their fate?
No; let us carry on the good work so nobly begun to a
You can be a part of this business. The dividends are
paid daily in "THE SMILES OF CHILDREN." What
greater reward than this? we ask. One million two
hundred and fifty thousand children in Belgium still
smile, and will continue to smile so long as we remain
at work. Ask any mother or father, or your phj-sician,
what happens In the case of growing children who for
two years have not eaten according to their hunger.
A balanced ration has been devised for the children of
Belgium, which is being given in school and other
centers under supervision. But they must have 1,250,
000 of these rations every day. Whatever happens, the
humane sentiment of the world will demand that food
reach Belgium, and America's responsibility to provide
the means will be just as great. And for every
American who has been compelled to leave Belgium,
a neutral, trained to the work of relief, stands ready
and willing to fill the place. Again we say "the good
work must go on to a victorious end."
You, or Your Family, or Your Group, or Your Club, or Your Church, Can Organize
and Guarantee Specific Sums Payable Monthly. Enlist Yourself in This Great Cause
The Oregon-Wide Belgian Relief Committee
Welcomes Your ,
To this committee of responsible and rep
resentative citizens of our state has been
assigned the work of conducting the cam

been called upon to provide relief for

dren, who, through no fault of theirs, are

form? The results of this appeal will
