Teaching 1s a rcfeimioir calling for
tho highest devotion, patriotic and altru

is a spirit of consecration. This spirit
cannot be developed in a school which is
merely an adjunct of an Institution
The time has come when all classes
of people begin to realiie the Import
ance and necessity of methodical, sys
tematic training for the every day
duties of life, regardless of the voca
tion. Business men no longer think or

til they are thoroughly trained In some
good business suhoul. Never in the his
tory of Portland was the outlook so
bright as now for young people who are
well prepared to take part in the vari
ous lines of progressive activity.
Kor 20 years the Christian Brothers
ip Portland oonfined themselves to
parochial school work. That work waS
thorough and satisfactory as far as t
went, but the fact became evident that
tha time was ripe for the establish
ment of an Institution which would
carry on the work to a higher stage of
efficiency and prepare students, in even
a more helpful and practical way, for
tho exigencies of workaday life. Ac
cordingly, in 1008, the Brothers crossed
the river and established in East Port
land a pretentious institution known as
the Christian Brothers' Business Col
lege. The building is well equipped and
thoroughly modern, and the institution
is one of which the people of Portland,
may well he proud. ,
The opening of tho business college
necessitated an increase ln'thc number
of taaehers and the Installation cf up
to dale appliances, hut the business col
lege is no longer an educational ven
ture. It has passed out of the eperl
muntal stage, and enjoys a large at
tendance and ah enviable reputation.
The Institute of the Brothers of the
Christian schools wr.a approved as a
religious congregation January 25, 1725.
Tha mission " thus imposed upon the
Christian Brothers by the church Is to
Imbue the minds of their pupils with
the gospel and Christian precepts, to
teach them all things necessary to lead
a truly Christian life.

Without showing the wonderful growth
and development of an institution that
touches practically all lines of business.
Ten years ago there came to Portland
a man acquainted with the requirements
of modern business, a man who for 20
years had a vision and felt that he was
capable of crystallzlng his efforts Into
business men and business women. Two
small rooms were occupied by a small
shorthand school tn the Commercial
building. This man purchased one-half

work. In loss than a year it Vas neces

since then It has been necessary to
move, till at the present time more than
86,000 square feet of floor space la util

ly 1000 students.
The man was the present president of
the Behnke-Walker business college.
