Elveen begins a series of four lec

passing. He gave a series of lectures
on this topic at the training school
that was held at the First Methodist
church during the autumn. The
course that he will give in his own
church will introduce an immense
amount of material that he had not
time to give to the class of teachers
he was training. Each week ah out
line of the thoughts to be presented
will be chalked upon an immense
blackboard and if the interest de
mands, multigraph copies of his notes
will be distributed. Some years ago
Dr. McElveen taught a class of about
900 that assembled every Saturday
afternoon in the large auditorium of
Tremont temple. Dr. McElveen has
also taught large teacher training

Albany College to Double
Its Resources.
Dr. A. M. Williams Coca East to
Confer With Presbyterian Gen
eral Board of Education.
Jn. 1. (S
COLLEGE, Albany. Or..
Special.) Dr. A. M.
Williams, president of Albany college,
left this week for the east in interest
of the campaign to double the assets
and resources of tne Presbyterian
college of the state during the next
five years. He will spend a day In
St. Paul conferring with the trust
company that has invested for the
college the "850,000 left by the late
James J. Hill. The trustees report
annually to this company concerning
their investment of the $200,000 se
cured to meet the' condition of Mr.
President Williams will visit sev
eral eastern colleges In study of build
ing plans and the post-war reorgani
zation authorized by the trustees. H
will go as far as NTew York where
final agreements will be effected with
the general board of education,
which board has offered Albany col
lege $70,000 on condition that the
college gets subscriptions tor $280,
000 by March 31, 1923.
Asked for a statement at the end
of his first year as president of the
college, Dr. Williams said:
, "The progress of Albany college
this year is due to two facts: First,
the promise of the Presbyterian gen
eral board of education to include Al
bany in the list of colleges to which
it will distribute $2,000,000 In the
year 1923, and second, the practically
solid line-up of the Presbyterian min
isters and leading laymen for re
suming the programme for the col
lege's expansion which was post
poned by the war.
"The first of the above facts Is
due largely to the activity in the east
of Dr. Edgar P. Hill, formerly of
Portland, who now heads the educa
tional work of the Presbyterian
church. Dr. Hill came out to the
Oregon synod two years ago and told
the leaders that the trustees of Al
bany college should proceed to elect
a president to succeed Dr. H. M.
Crooks who had left Oregon during
the war: that they should double the
current expense budget of the col
lege; and that a period of expansion
should be arranged, including the
erection of new buildings and a sub
stantial additon to the endowment
tf the college. The first two steps
have been taken by the trustees, co
operating with the synod of Oregon
and the general board of education.
The third step is now being planned,
a campaign for $300,000 to meet the
offer of tjie eastern board to give
us $70,000.
"The trustees have in mind, as soon
as money can be secured, the erec
tion of three new buildings on the
campus recently purchased south
west of the city. These buildings
are, it is expected, all to be made
memorials to the pioneers who set
tled the state and who laid founda
tions of our worthiest Institutions.
The names of the hails to be built
will, it is thought, appeal to the best
historic sentiment of the pioneers
and their descendants.
"An interesting possibility In the
prospect for United Presbyterian co
operation at Albany college. Leaders
of tha denomination have, from the
earliest days, been loyal to Albany
college. As a matter of fact, as
recently discovered by C. H. Stewart,
postmaster at Albany and historian
for the United Presbyterians on the
coast, Albany college Is the direct
successor of old Union academy,
erected on the banks of the Calapooia
river near Brownsville early In the
fifties. 'Union' was suggested by the
fact that its trustees were principally
associate Presbyterians and associate
Reformed Presbyterians, the two
psalm singing bodies that came to
gether a few years later to form the
United Presbyterian church of North
America and whose missionaries here
in Oregon formed the union before
the union, the first U. P. presbytery
in existence. This fist union took
place in Linn county and contained
an equal number from the two
hitherto separated bodies. Union
academy failed. Theh came Rev. H. H.
Spalding, famous as the missionary
to the Nez Perces. and who escaping
from the Whitman massacre came to
Linn county and founded the Pres
byterian church at Brownsville. Dr.
E. P. Geary, who was sent to Oregon
I by President Buchanan as Indian
j commission and by the Presbyterian
i church to found a college in the
northwest, and Rev. W. J. Montelth
who settled Albany. These three
j -Presbyterians and two United Pres
byterians Dr. S. G. Irvine and Rev.
Wilson Blain were among those
whose labors culminated In 1866 In
the organization of Albany college.
Seven of the nine original trustees
were United Presbyterians, though
the cbllege was placed under the
control of the general assembly of
the Presbyterian church in the U.
S. A."
Commenting on new features of ,
Albany college's expansion, Presi-
dent Williams said:
"Albany college will continue to
be a full fledged cultural college,
but will increasingly add vocational
courses as we may be able. We be
lieve that technical education should
usually follow a full cultural course;
but for those whose preparation must
be crowded into four years, courses
are being arranged for two and three
years and that will articulate with
work being done in schools of engi
neering, agriculture, domestic science,
journalism, etc.
"Before we are ready to occupy the
i lti , Z
! religious leadership In the churches
I of Albany and nearby communities."
