President Doney of Willamette university, in his annual
report to the board of trustees at their meeting; yesterday,
made a splendid showing of progress f j :
T Justifying the claim that has often been made in these
columns that the institution is one of the outstanding assets
of this city and community, both for its cultural and moral
and refining value, and for its financial worth to our com
mercial activities, i :
t There has been rapid growth of late: j
k j In 1905 Willamette's total Income was $8,100 1 five years
later it was $21,310; in 1915 it was $32,000, and this year it
will approximate $90,000 with a substantial increase indi
cated for next year. j! ; :' - j v
; In 1910 a total of 207 students were in attendance, and
In 1915 the number was 208. In 1920 the number' had grown
to 450, and this year the total is 640. In ten years' the college
of liberal arts has multiplied more than 300 per cent '
! : And it is clear that another building is needed, and Dr.
Doney said: "It appears to me that it should be one devoted
especially to the natural; sciences, releasing the present
science building for needed class rooms. j
President Doney also said that "a library building is be
coming more-and more necessary." He said also that it is
probable that a dormitory for boys would prove helpful in
directing their conduct and creating a proper unity of spirit ;
and it should also be a source of small profit financially.
f Dr. Doney also recommended an organized health service
for the institution, a matter that is now in negotiation, and he
recommended two additions to the faculty, to assist in the
department of biology and in the teaching of history; also he
recommended some salary increases, in which connection
he said: , : 1 '
, "The increases to salaries is just and wise.
; We have a faculty which in scholastic equip- .
. , ment and Reaching! ability tanks iththe besjtrj"" :
several of the professors are distinctly excep
- K tionalnd in moral quality are vastly above, the

to Willamette were some of them tempted be-
"" yond their powers of resistance to go to other
I : institutions. To be free from financial worries,
!' to be able to buy books, to have a reserve. for
; , health and old age are assets to a teacher which
i make him of greater value to his school.'
1 The : salary increases for next year over this year will
amount io about; $10,000. i "
f The business secretary showed in his report' that all bills
are paid, and that there is a small surplus. s; j 1
"I : Willamette university is on the way towards greater
usefulness and a higher grade of work in all departments,
and towards becoming a greater institution in the number of
students j 1 .
And it is justifying; tlie great sacrifices of its founders
. and the high hopes of its friends of later years, -l
. The company to own the second linen mill for Salem,
"The Oregon Linen Mills Inc." is on its way towards incorpor
ation and organization 1! V ! I !
' 'With sufficient of the stock subscribed to justify mak
ing plans and ordering the machinery.' ; j.i r .
; There are: three shipments of machinery for our first
linen mill.'the Miles plant, on the ocean, and the fourth and
last shipment is either on the way or about1 ready to start
and. the first shipment is either there or due in1 Vancouver,
B. on its way .here. !f The machinery shipments are two
months later than promised; and the beginning of operations
will have to be dated around September first instead of July
first, as; planned. The pian who set up the machinery for
lienry:Fod has finished' there and is in New York, and will
have charge of installing the machinery here, j ; i
r So we are fairly on the way in our linen mill develop
ment, which will see great growth, and the writer believes
fc .Looking to the time when there' will be in the Salem
district an industry bringing $100,000,000 annually, and em

receiving diplomas ..from high schools and colleges. These
diplomas are or should be testimonials of educational effort

others are in duty bound also to plan wisely for their own
future vocations. The world owes no one a. living. . It should
however encourage opportunity for every one to earn a live
lihood. - --.
The first requisite of education is respect for consistent,
persistent labor at something really worth while. If educated
people would not work education would soon become an intol
erable evil. No country can long sustain in idleness more
than a small percentage of its numbers. Most young people
recognize work as essential to their well-being arid happiness
and the most perplexing problem for them is how to combine
most satisfactorily labor and education.
One of the most serious economic problems of today is
the over supply of so-called "white collar" labor. There are
too many young men who are willing to sacrifice personal
income and real service for the "gentleman's job." .Work
does not, of course, mean manual labor only. It may include
literary, professional, commercial or industrial effort and of
this list the industrial is of basic importance. ; t v
It is not enough for our schools and colleges, to send forth
young -people possessed with text book knowledge only.- It is
of equal importance that they go out into life's competitions
with deep appreciation of the honor,' dignity and enduring
values of labor. ; -
The present year sees rapid progress in building oper
ations. Six billion dollars a year is the present pace. And
forty-five per cent of this construction is in homes. ( More
Americans, it is said; are now owning their homes than in
any previous year. ' ; ' . : 1 ;
The movement to suburban locations is accountable in
part for this condition. Good roads, the auto and electric
lines of travel encourage rural homes. A growing 'desire for
better standards of living than those in small or crowded
quarters in cities is also a contributing factor. To own,
rather than rent; to possess a real home is a prime requisite
of high quality citizenship. To live amidst the beauties and
comforts of one's own srarden.
is ample room for recreation
This movement for home
the state and nation. Through this ownership the owner
becomes a tangible part of the governmental unit. Every
home built and occupied creates new values for the whole
community and through it the whole range of social and
economic conditions is improved. , i

The servant was also in a hurry.

He and his little bride were
receiving the congratulations of
their relatives and friend at the
reception which followed the wed-
dlag. ceremony. . Somebody, called
upon him to say a few words, but
he, hung back and stammered and
bashfully, declined.; ilia friends

said: 'Get up and say something
to them, George. Show them that
you can do it. I
"George hesitated a moment,
rose to his feet, looked around
vainly for some means of escape,
and thn. putting his hand oh bis

He led the prospective customer

came to a halt beside a small but
wirey animal, which rolled its
eyes in an ominoua way.
! "There you are, sirj This is a
fine horse, either to drive or ride.
As sound as a nut, and goes ten
miles without stopping.
"But. m'sieur." ' protested the
Frenchman, "I leeve but eight
