The public schools of Salem
are supported financially by di
rect, taxation and by funds from
the state, county, by tuition and
other sources. It requires a
budget of between $200,000 and
4225,000. Of this amount over
$100,000 comes from direct tax
ation, amounting to about 8
mills on Tvery $1000 of assessed
property in the district The
county school fund brings $10 for
every -child in the district between
the ages of four and twenty years.
The state school fund brings In
$2 for every child. The elemen
tary school fund provides from
the county about $300 for every
elementary or grade teacher em
ployed. The district secures from
pupils, not residing In the Salem
district the actual cost of edu
cation, or about $95 a pupil. The
fund comes from a tax on prop
erty not in a high school district.
Nearly one-fourth of the high
school pupils are from outside of
District No. 24. These pupils
come mainly from Polk and Mar
ion counties. This fund amounts
to over $22,000 a year. There
are . smaller sources ot revenue,

The Salem high RChool stands
high among the schools of the
state. Her graduates make envi
able records in the colleges of the
state. They are leaders both in
athletics and in forenslcs. For
the last two years Salem high
school students have held the
presidency of the student body
of the University of Oregon. Last
Spring our debaters won the
state championship in debate and
the permanent possession of the
big silver loving cup. The cham
pionship has been won three
years in six. No other high school
in the state has such a record.
Salem also last spring won the
state essay contest. In football,
baseball and basketball Salem
was the undisputed champion of
the Willamette valley, and had
a good claim in each one of these
activities for the state champion
ship. Careful supervision is given to
all work in the schools of the dis
trict. It is planned to make
every dollar expended produce as
big a result as possible. This
naturally should go toward better
education for the children of Sa
lem. ''The Schools Are for the
Children," this is our slogan.

Jason Lee, the First Protestant Minister to the Pacific Coast, Was Its Founder,
and the Nucleus Fund for the Founding of Old Willamette Was Subscribed by
the Devoted Missionary Company on Board the Good Ship Lausanne While the
Vessel Was Sailing for the "Foreign Land," Oregon Willamette University
Ranks High as an Institution of Higher Learning
the College or Liberal ArU
As has often been said, Wil
lamette university is the oldest
institution of higher learning west
of the Rocky mountains, it han
been found, indeed, that with but
three small exceptions, all in the
state of Missouri, 'Willamette is
the oldest institution west of the
Mississippi river. It claims as its
founder no less distinguished an
individual than Reverend Jason
Lee, first Protestant minister to
the Pacific coast and first min
ister of any kind to the Pacific
northwest. He came to this coun
try when, except for a few whlta
trappers and traders, this wholo
region was peopled by Indians
only. Seeing the great opportun
ity and the great need, he re
turned to the Atlantic seaboard
for help.
Receiving considerable finan
cial assistance, including a liberal
donation from the United States
government secret service fund,;
he sailed from New York harbor
in 1839 with a boatload ot 50
people, including women and chil
dren. It was while his good chip,
the Lausanne, was in the Atlantic
ocean off the coast of Brazil, that
this band of missionaries sub
scribed $650 for the causeof edu
cation in the "foreign" land of
Oregon, for which they were sail
ing. While it is uncertain whe
ther this money was intended to
found a school for Indians or
whites, we do know that the In
dian school, founded soon after
their arrival in the vicinity o' Sa
lem, was later merged into a
school for whites. The old Ore
gon Institute, located on the pres
ent university campus, across
State street from the capitol
building was the first school for
white children on the Paqif;c
coaRt. The date of the founding
of Willamette university has been
fixed at IS 44.
Was Ht-re Before Salem
Willamette university was here
before there was any town of Sa
lem. The Indian village, Chemeketa.
was In the vicinity, but it was
some years afterward that a num
her of white families, having been
drawn to this locality by the op
portunity of educating their chil
dren afforded by the presence ot
Willamette university, that tbe
white village received the name
of Salem.
In those sarly days there Ticre
no grade or grammar schools ex
cept as afforded by the university.
Very many of our old settlers re
ceived their training in the three
R's at that institution. Mr. C. B.
Moores of Portland is an example.
It is said that he began in te
primary department of Willam
ette university and continued Ms
education through his boyhood
and youth within its walls, final
ly graduating with the degree of
A. B. There are doubtless many
fther who knw no other educa
tional institutloa of any kind dur
ing their school days

of the founders of the University,
and also of their successors all
down through the years, even to
the present day. It is a motto

the days when it was lived up to

in this then wilderness; and it
puts into words the spirit that ia

the entire human family.
ette university on its campus in
the heart of Salem, has been an
influence equalled only by that
from the capital itself, in deter
mining the character and spirit or
our capital, city. The university
ever since the infant days of the
city, has continued to draw a class
of people who have been apprecia
tive of public education and of all
the higher things for which an
intelligent and progressive com
munity should stand.
Has Helped The City's Growth
It might be possible to quote
statistics showing the material
advantages which have accrued
to the city from the presence of
money disbursed by the university
authorities for salaries, for equip
ment and for various administra
tive purposes, added to the money
spent by students who have com?

fit of the city. The annual bud
get for carrying on the university
administration has reached nearly
$100,000, while the money spent
in Salem by the Willamette fac
ulty and students is two or three
times this sum.
A Fine Student Body
The student body is drtwn from
some of the best homes of Ore
gon, Washington and Idaho.
While these states furnish most
of the students, there is a sprinK
ling from many other states and
some foreign countries. The reg
istrar informs us that there are
students for next year now on the
way from China and Japan
From its early days Willamette
university has sent forth men and
women who have been promintnt
leaders in the councils of our
state and nation.
W. U. Ranks Hbsh
Among Oregon's educational in
stitutions, Willamette university
ranks very high. The opinion has
been expressed by disinterested
eastern educators that Willam
ette's educational standards are
superior to those of any state
school or denominational school
in Oregon.
Her 500 students are about an
that she can accommodate satis
factorily with her present equip
ment. She needs more buildings,
particularly a modern gymnasium,
to take the place ot one recently
burned, and she needs also ad
ditional endowment in order to
provide for the additional equip
ment and teaching force more and
more required of all modern col
leges. Willamette university, located
here before there was a Salem,
co-existent with the growth and
development of the city, is one of
the latter's component parts
which is certainly here to stay. As
in the past its influence has been
nrofound, so for untold genera
tions to come Willamette univcr
sitv will continue to exercise up
lifting and altogether beneficial
in'luence upon Oregon's capital
