THE OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE
During jliwte stirrinK war lime, with tin' worl.1 on n riiiii;itfe
of clestruetioii And 1lit people- rnit ami ability to rule fueiuK itn
supreme tent, all legitimate democrat ie InHtituthm are entitled to
our support-. CriticiHin' of" Hticli institution nhould ho of h ecm
atructive nature only. WV are loath to believe that Toniona (irane,
in adopting resolutions condemning in violent language the Hoard
of Regent of the Oregon Agricultural College and PrcKident Kerr,
intended to Ktrike at the very fouinlation of the institution. Mm
uaefulueMH depend very largely upon the number of young men and
women the College U able to train along xpeeial linen to the end that
the work of the Htale and. Nation mny be belter ami more efficiently
The reaolutioh do "not declare' whether It i higher education
generally that Jh objected to or only the particular brand of practical
higher education dwpfnned at the Oregon Agricultural College. The
College ha o Jong enjoyed the confidence of the people and ha
met the need of the State in its xtruggle for better agricultural and
farm home condition that this unwarranted ami caustic isault
eomcH a distinct ahock.
When Dr. Kerr took hold of the iiiMtitut ion, if it had any rating
among the Agricultural College' of the nation, it whh a thing to be
forgotten. , Now, however, it is rated an third in the United State,
a standing Oregon may well be proud of. We should also be proud
of the fact that the College han ecn able to contribute-to the
Nation's Army and Navj over r0b young men with military train
ing. Over 1800 student are enrolled m ttie tegular course and over
.'J.'jOO receive instruction at the iiislitutini. It extension department
reach en e.very part of the Ktate uiml extend expert ail vice and as
R'lKtance jit all matter pertaining $o crop production, including irri
gation, and drainage- Thia i the jorgatuxaVton through which the
Federal Government i largely j carrying on it, effective campaign
to stimulate food production.
Yet it is the institution that has these achievement to it credit,
largely due to the rare executive ability or its 'President and the
confidence of the people in him, that the Pomona Orange says is
an unfit place for the sons and daughters of Oregon farmer.
- - It was originally; asserted by the enemies of Drl. Kerr and the
College that, deception had been practiced, but this wa exploded by
Dr. Kerr V frank statement in his first published interview, unani
mously corroborated by the members of the Board if Regents. Then
why this attack! What is the motive behind it? .
Upon cool thought it must be apparent that the disruption oi
this organization-and creating of distrust in the minds of the peopU
would be no little handicap to the nation at this time. Let the author
of the Grange resolutions come frankly forward, state how man)
Liberty bonds he has bought and what other acts he has performed
to assist the nation in its struggle for liberty.
If there be no ulterior motive behind these resolutions, then wt
can only say of the. Grange as the darky preacher did of the Almight
when he misquoted the scriptures. "Truly it. (the Pomona Grange
works in a mischievous way its blunders to perform."
It is the open season for Russian
premiers and for most other Rus
Uans, too for that matter. , 1

Although Russia Is a large coun

The French government enatcert

France. To this is added a premium
of 20 francs for each hectare $l.t0
per acre- cultivated in wheat in ex
cess of the area cultivated in the preceding-
year. The French farmer
therefore receives from the govern
ment an average of oveV 20 franca
per bushel for all wheat he ral?e

to the cultivation of wheat. On th
other hand, he la prohibited from
charging the millers more than 23

asked him, and be answered; 'Search
me.' He was unlearned In the creed
of the schools, but he had rome to
know that Jesus saves men from
drunkenness and the' brothel and be
was ordained because he had a creed
built up on his own experience.
"The blind man's creed was a pro
gressive, growlnx creed. Jesus found
him a'ter. he had been thrown out
of the synagogue and asked him,
'Dost thou believe on the Son of
God? 4 I the man answered, "Who
is he. Lord, that I may believe on
Him?' and when Jesus answered, 'Ha
is that sperketh with thee.' the
blind man replied, 'Lord, I believe.'
He irould not be bound by the creed
of his parents, nor by the belief that
lie himself had had. His creed was
enpablej of expansion so as to in-e-urte,
