HOME CITY WELL SUIT
ED FOR LINFIELD COL
LEGE SAYS CATALOG
The annual catalog of Linfield
college for 1923-24 is oft the
fpress, - It 'reveals an enrollment
of 270, of Which 116 are men and
154 women. The freshman class
shows 100 students. Speaking of
the location of the college the cat
alog says: The town (McMinn
ville) with a population of about
3000. is well suited to be the
home of an educational institution
of the type of Linfield college.
Its people are prosperous and are
interested in education."
The senior class snows a mem
bership of 38 students who will
graduate at the June commence
ment. "Linfield college is the new
name given to the Baptist college
at McMinnville, Oregon, hitherto
known as McMinnville college. The
change was made at" the semi
monthly meeting of the board of
trustees on January 10, 1922. By
this action Linfield college has
become a memorial to the life aid
work of the Rev. George Fisher
Linfield, late principal of Waylaid
academy, who in the prime of his
years passed away as a sacrifice
iipon the altar of Christian educa
tion. The memorial was created
at the instance of his widow,
Frances Eleanor Ross Linfield,
dean of women and a member of
the board of trustees. To recip
rocate the action of the board, and
to express her approval of the
ideals and work of the college,
Mrs. Linfield has desdei to the
institution several pieces of real
estate in the city of Spokane,
Wash., representing a total value
of about aquarter of a million
Other statements taken from
the catalog are as follows: Lin
field college was founded 67 years
ago through the foresight and
faith of our Baptist pioneers. This
institution received a charter from
the legislature on January 30,
1858, and has1 continuously devot
ed itself to the cause of Christian
On January 10, 1906, the Rev.
Leonard W. Riley, D.D., was elect
ed to the presidency of the college:
The general assets on January
1, 1924, were $16S,282.65 as
against $47,500 in 1906. The en
dowment fund has increased from
S54.020.21 to $437,537.47, not in
cluding Mrs. Liufield's recent gift
and the debts of the college,
amounting to $34,653.63 in 1906
have all been paid.
Further developments are now
being planned in regard to build
ings and endowment.
"Linfield college will receive
from the Rockefeller Foundation
$200, 000 on condition that $400,-,
000 be raised for the college. In
view of our participation in the
benefits of the New World move
ment of the Northern Baptist con
vention and the gift of Mrs. Lin
field it is confidently expected that
this amount will be raised within
the limit of time set by the gen
eral education board, that is, be
fore November J, 1925. This will
bring the total endowment to
above $850,000 and justifies the
forecase that the million dollar
mark will be reached within the
next few years."
Hard Times in Sea Trade
May Be Nearing End
LONDON, March 12. The de
pression in shipping which began
so suddenly in 1920 still prevails
but the bottom has been touched
with regard to bad freights, said
Sir Alan Anderson in his presi
dential' address to the Chamber of
Shipping. Without wishing to ap
pear too hopeful or to encourage
anyone to speculate on an early
return to prosperity, he believed
there was evidence that the posi
tion of the British Mercantile Mar
ine was improving and that it had
profited by the medicine of adver
sity. There was still a redundant fleet
of vessels in all countries, and sur
plus tonnage was one of the two
main factors governing freights.
No less than 75,000,000 tons, or
12rc of the world's tonnage, was
over 25 years old. Sir Alan hop
ed they might, without improprie
ty, suggest to owners of this im
mense mass of obsolete or unsuit
able tonnage, that they would be
doing not only the world, but
themselves, a service if they gave
full employment to the shipbreak
ers. The other factor governing
freights was the world's business.
While signs existed that in this
nation and in the world trade had
touched bottom and was beginning
to improve, the. .health of interna
tional trade was still precarious.
If the patient were left to himself
he would pull through, but if an
attempt were made to hasten this
recovery by stfong medicine1 or
magical panaceas, a dangerous re
lapse must be expected. Ship own
ers would unite in hoping that the
governments of the world' would
endeavor to? arrange the finance
for international trade, to set the
stage, and would then leave inter
national commerce to work out the
"LET THE PEOPLfc RULE"
What's gone wrong with. Gover
nor Pierce since he went to Salem?
Has he changed his Views on pol
itics? Has he retraced his steps
from the attitude taken far years
in eastern Oregon when he advo
cated "let the people rule?"
Oh, that slogan, how sweet it
used to sound when the governor
with his marked oratory and
straight stature so eliquently pour
ed forth into the ears of the pro
letariat, "let the people rule."
But, something has happened,
Walter "ain't what he used to be"
for in appointing Jefferson Myers
to the office of state treasurer, the
governor insisted that the commis
sion be made out to 1927, the end
of the deceased treasurer's term!
A general election is to be held
this fall when, according to all
rules of the game, a new treasurer
should be elected to till the unex
pired term of Treasurer Hoff. '
Yet the governor "ignores 'that
dear old slogan, "let the people
rule," and by bugernatorial edict
attempts to -continue Jefferson

Oh, Walter. Walter, has the as
sociatlon with those Willamette
