the Lord to bless the town and
its citizens. ':
"Look at Dayton today, and
look at Lebanon," offer the be
lievers, in proof that the curse
and; the blessing alike have been
realized. "Both towns were the
same size back tn 1820 about
lOOjO persons in each. Now Dayton
is a prosperous manufacturing
city1 of nearly 200,000 people, and
Lebanon is still a village of only
two or three thousand."
A history of Shakerism, relates
that immediately after the pro
nouncements, hundreds of super
stitious settlers, with visions of
Dayjon's future greatness hasten
ed to move there, forming the
nucleus for the city of today.

.The records of any c fen reh or
ganization or institution are, of
value in proportion as they are
warnings cf failure, or recall the
means of progress. For some per
sons, too, they revive pleasant
memories or experiences. It is
with these values in mind that the
following is here presented.
The very early records of the
present church are indeed meager.
To O. A. Condit. now deceased.
but for over 21 years the faithful
clerk of sessions, acknowledge
ment is due for considerable infor
mation contained in this record
In 1869, 56 years ago, this or
ganization was effected as a United
Piesbyterian church with 20 mem
bers. The lot upon which the
present church has aJways stood
is a part of the Villson donation
land claim and was the gift of Mrs.
Chloe A., wife of W: H. Wlllson,
owner of the land upon which the
city of Salem was platted. Said
lor was deeded to J. B.; Porsythe
and John Patterson in trust fur
the First Presbyterian church of
Salem. Oct. 14. 1872. Articles of
incorporation of the organization
were executed by David Allen, J.
W. Crawford and John H. Albert
Feb. 3, 1873, andlfiled on the same
drte. which wasfurther empha
sized by conveyance of the lot held
in trust by Patterson and Forsythe
lo the corporation itself.
Of the construction of the pres
ent church building there are prac-
.ioally no records. From the date
of the organization to September
1 the date otoccupancy of the
present church building the con
gregation wo'rshipped in a hall
vented fjom J. K. Gill. The con
struction was financed by the
Noard of church erection and by
:ontributions from members and
:"riends. In the spring of 1894
lie church was remodeled and im
proved. Interesting ecclesiastical chan-j--
took place during the early his
tory of the church, which are of
interest in interpreting spiritual
and mental attitudes of those
'ays. For example, in September,
1872, at a local coni?rcgational
meeting it was voted to make cer-
'.in changes of "ecclesiastical re
:&tions," and a commissioner was
;PPointod to present the matter
o the Presbytery which met on
November 7 of that year at Al
bany. As a result of this action
the efeurch was received and en
rolled as the First Presbyterian
Church of Salem. Oregon, and the
minutes of the church further re
veal that, at a meeting on Janu
aiy following, the "congregation
unanimously decided to introduce
instrumental music into the Sun
All Oregon was included in. the
one Presbytery, which was a part
of the Pacific synod when, this
?hurch was established. At the
Albany meeting out of a total of
1 7 Presbyterian ministers in the
tate. seven were present and ten
absent. At this date (January 1.
1927) there are in this same terri
tory six presbyteries. 14 4 church
es, approximately 175 ministers,
and more than 20.000 Presbyter
ian members. And a most encour
aging phase of this membership

noted in the membership of young
people who are students in higher
educational institutions of this
state. Presbyterian students lead
all other denominations in num
bers at Oregon Agricultural col
lege, and present a very high com
parative record at other higher ed
ucational institutions of Oregon.
The Salem church was organ
ized as a home mission church,
and so remained up to 1885 16
years. In that year it became a
contributor to all the boards of
the church. .
. From an initial membership of
20 the local church has grown to
&64. Its Sunday school has an en
rollment of 480.

living is J. N. Patterson of ,The

When Art graduated from
school, he had a fairly good stand
ing, and his people were proud of
him. He started off to cplege,
and soon was a member of one of
the most exclusive fraternities.
Then he became very proud and
fjelt himself better than ordinary
folks. He forgot that after all it
is character that makes the man

When New Year's Day came
round, he with some other young
men joined a party in the office of
a certain man who was a great
favorite' with young men. While
there some one introduced the

knew he ought to refuse it. and, so
did they, all. It was not long e-
Tore they all had too much. They
became boisterous. A brawl in
which there was a good deal jof
fighting and bad words. Art Bol

Boling's story. He was expelled
from college. He was arrested
and tried for murder. The jury
disagreed and he was not tried
again. But the disgrace, and hurt
were too much for him and his
whole life so completely spoiled
that never again could he rise to
what he had been, or become what
he had every promise of being, a
It is a very different story that
we have to tell of one of Art's
class-mates. Jane Williams had
to work pretty hard to get her
standings in school, but she kept
climbing and her grades grew bet
ter. On graduation -day, while
Art had just a fair passing mark
Jane was well up toward the head
of the class. Art sometimes
teased her about plugging so hard,
but she kept on just the same.
Of course, she, too, had tempta
tions to meet. But she resolved
that she would not do anything
that would spoil her life, or defeat
her purposes. Her whole life was
different. ln their school days
Jatie and Art had been very close
friends. He was supposed to love
