DiiE OF THE BEST
fill UNITED STATES
The Oregon Normal School
Ranks Hrgh; It Has Had
I a Wonderful Growth
Situated in the beautiful hill
country of Polk county in the city
of Monmouth, on the paved West
Side highway, la one of the three
state institutions for higher educa
tion, the Oregon Normal school.
The campus at the present "time
consists of about 11 acres, with ad
ministration (building J containing
offices, classrooms, library and
auditorium, residential ihalla, gym
nasium, heating plant1 and laun
dry, athletic field and tennis
courts. The grounds are. very at
tractive with lawns, stately trees,
shrubbery.; vines and flower gar
dens, and command an inspiring
view of the surrounding country.
Because of its comparative isola
tion and the delightful climatic
conditions, it; affords an Ideal en
vironment for study and whole
some living. The school provides
carefully supervised recreation in
the : way of sports and entertain
ment, including a lyceum course
and a weekly cinema in the audi-.
torium. Further diversion Is of
fered In orchestra, glee clubs, and
the social literary societies of Del
phian and Vespertine. There are
no college fraternities or sorori
ties, and the student body is under
self government. I
; Has Had Rapid Growth - -
Probably no educational insti
tution in the west has experienced
as rapid growth in the last few
years. Since the fall term of
1920. when the enrollment was
320. the attendance increased in
the fall terms of 1921 to 373.
1922 to 537, and 1923 to 623.
Corresponding increases were re
corded in the other three terms
of these yearsl During the acad
emic year 1923-24, there were en
rolled 2Q43 j different students.
The present summer session regis
ters 1024 students, by tar the lar
gest enrollment in the history of
the school. .This steady Increase
Is due In part to the higher stan
dards of training required by the
department of education before a
teacher is certificated. i and partly
to a record of efficiency among
the normal schools of the west.
The Journal of Education of July
3, 1924, states editorially that "in
several respects in professional
progress and social distinction the
school is one .of the best in the
United States." . :
In order to accommodate this

increase of students, it has been
necessary during the summer to
conduct branches at Pendleton and
Ashland, and to provide further
practice school facilities my secur
ing the use of an eigai room pub
lic school building in Corvallis
and two such buildings in Salem.
It will be necessary, however, to
make provision Immediately for
increased facilities during the reg
ular school year in the way : of
additional faculty members, more
class rooms, and practice schools
in the immediate vicinity. It has
been impossible- to carry out need
ed improvements along these lines
thus far, owing; to the fact that
the school has been administered
largely on the basis of a millage
tax provided several years, ago
which did not anticipate the un
precedented growth of the school
in four years. Meanwhile, faculty
and students continue to work un
der the serious handicap of large
classes, crowded conditions, and
delays in securing the work re
quired. This condition is of course
temporary and will be duly rem
edied when the financial provision
is made commensurate with the
rapidly increasing demand for
trained teachers and in view of the
More Dormitory Hoom Needed
Only a small portion of the stu
dents desiring "dormitory accom
modations are able to secure such
and then only by making applica
tion at least three months in . ad
vance. However, the citizens of
Monmouth are responding quite
satisfactorily to meet thi3 condi
tion for the accommodation of. fetu
dents who cannot enjoy the priv
ileges of the residential halls.
Homes are being opened and the
standard of living conditions has
been greatly improved in behatf
of the students. , Since it is con
sidered a decided advantage to the
average student to have the exper
ience and discipline and general
cultural influences afforded by the
dormitory, which are considered
unique and superior in their way,
it is tboped that provision will be
made Jo extend this privilege to a
larger number of students than
Can now be accommodated.
j Is Being Strengthened
The Normal School is now or
ganized on a four quarter basis
of 12 weeks each. The courses
offered include: all the subjects
required to be taught in the ele
mentary schools, supplemented by
various . courses in psychology,
education, and methods, equipping
teachers for high class service in
the j elementary schools of the
state. While cadet teachers secure
practice for teaching in city
school systems in the training
schools of Monmouth and Indepen
dence, rural school practice Is pro
vided at the rural centers of Eola,
Oak Point, Elkins, Mountain View,
Ilickreall. and at the Children's
Farm Home. The curriculum, has
recently been greatly strengthen
ed by the presentation of several
important new courses. Mn addi
tion.; lecturers of not frequently
appear during the year at student
convocation which occurs three
times a week. providing further
instruction and culture. -
The present quarter closes Aug
ust 29th, permitting teachers to
reach their respective schools in
timet for openlng early in Septem
ber.! The fall quarter for the
schoiol year 1924-25 opens Mon
day.! September 22nd. Indications
point to a large attendance.

standard collegesjn the spring of
1922. It has a;-. campus of 14.1
acres, and numerous ;fine build
ings. President Leonard VVV Ril
ey., D. D., asked for a brief -review
of the college and Its actlvi
ties, fends the following notes: )
j Unfield College the past -year
had 270 students enrolled, over
one-half of whom came from out
side the state of Oregon. : The
senior class, numbering 37, 'was
the largest yet graduated. Prac
tically all of these already have
positions to teach next year in the
various high schools of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho.' The fresh
man class numbered ;100. The
prospects for next year indicate
that again' the attendance will tax
our utmost capacity. ' j f
i Staff of Twenty-four
I The faculty of 1924-25 remains
the samej as the preceding' year
with the exception of the teacher
of biology, who this year will be
Professor .James A. Macnab. Mr.
Macnab holds his Bachelor of Arts
degree from, Albany College and
has had his post-graduate work
in the University of Washington
and the University, of Nebraska,
from which institution he receives
the Master of Science this summer.
He comes with the veryj best of
recommendations from his teach
ers and his former positions. : pne
additional teacher has been se
cured in the person of Miss Adej.
Iaide Walker, who will-be assist-
ant in the department of French.
and Spanish. Miss Walker is a
graduate. of the State College of
Washington, having had her train
ing under Professor Chalfant of
that institution.' who is a brother
of Miss May Chalfant. the head of
pur French and .Spanish depart
ment. For the first time' Linfield Col
lege this year will have a man giv
ing full time as librarian and reg
istrar. This work will be done
by Mr. John Kenneth Riley, a
graduate of Linfield College and
Of the Rochester Theological Sem
inary, at which institution he has
served as assistant in bo,th the
registrar's office and . in the libr
ary.' Every effort will be made
to put the library in the -best pos
sible shape for the use of our fac
ulty and students. 'These addi
tion's will make a staff of 24 for
the ensuing year. f

endowment funds now amount to
$457,162.16. This represents an
increase during the past year of
1180,000. This sum does not in
clude the gift of Mrs. Linfield nor
other non-income-bearing assets,
which amounts to half a million
more. The college " has,- there
fore, practically a million dollars
of endowment-assets, though but
half of , this amount is now income-bearing.
The trustees have not voted to
move Linfield College from Mc
Minnville. What they have done
is to express themseles as in favor
of moving to a more popuous cen
ter, provided a campus of at least
40 acres and $500,000 for new
buildings are made available.
: Backing of Fifty Thounsand
Linfield College is the Baptist
college of the Pacific Northwest,
having back of It the 50.000 mem
bers of Baptist churches' in the
states of Idaho. Oregon. Montana
and Washington. -The purpose of
the college can be expressed in no
better terms than was done in the
pioneer days when the promoters
of Christian education' declared It
to be established "for the culture
of our rising generations and the
perpetuation of our gospel princi
pies of liberty of conscience and
freedom-of thought." The mem
bers of the board of trustees, of
the faculty and of the - student
body together are constantly striv
ing for the realization of this no
