Useless Advice
This Is the time of the year when Hpeakera and cdit-
oriul writers take delight in handing out reams of ad
vice to youngsters who have just graduated or who' arc
bout to graduate from high school.
Such advice often views with pride the accomplish
ments of past generations, and views with alarm some
jut the pecadillos of the present younger generation.
Z- Such advice is usually superfluous and quite often
worthless. The speakers and writers seem to have it pen
chant for forgetting that they, too, were once young.
We prefer to look upon high school graduation in
; another way.
It is the coming of age of another group of Amer-
!"Jca's greatest single asset, our youth. Their parents have
' Invested considerable sums of money in them. The comm
unity and the state have invested still other funds in
their education.
Such an investment is made willingly, and even
eagerly by both parents and the community and state.
It is made only in hopes of receiving an adequate return.
The return is not to be figured in terms of per cents or
- dollars, but in a richer, fuller life for the graduates and
all those with whom they come in contact in their future
We're proud of our Central Oregon graduates, of
their records in the past and
future. We're sure they will
us have for them.
Jim Donovan Retiring?
Over on the news side
Staffers reported that Jim
They don't know Jim Donovan. It is true that he is
giving up his duties as manager of the Lumberman's
hospital in Bend. And he is resigning as chairman of the
tri-county selective service board.
But Jim Donovan is not retiring.
Later, Jim Donovan will establish his homo in a new
community. There ho will face new challenges. When some
serious community problem comes up, a committee will
be named, and Jim Donovan will be a member.
And eventually Jim will head the group as chair man.
This has happened repeatedly in Bend in the past
four decades as Jim Donovan

Do Something, Now
It probiibly would be next to impossible to make a
reasonable estimate of the number of graduates of private
colleges and universities who are employed by Oregon bus
inesses or who practice professions in this state.
Looking at the number of private colleges in the state,
though, and seeing the number of Oregon students regis
tered in some of the other private colleges and universi
ties outside the state, the number would bo considerable.
Oregon, therefore, can be said to have a big stake in
the future of private education in this country. And that
future, at the present writing, is the darkest it has been in
many years.
The reason is a simple one money.
Private institutions not having a tax base to fall
back on and having to keep their tuition within pretty
close limits have felt a tremendous financial pressure
in the past ten years.
Endowments from which many of them receive
large chunks of their income have increased at a much
slower rate than have expenses. Kvi-n though expenses
have increased greatly, the rise of faculty salaries has not
kept pace with the cost of living.
The private schools, then-Cure, have had to put in a
great deal of effort on unrestricted current gift pro
grams, in order to provide funds Cor current operating
Alumni of many institutions have responded nobly.
But business as a whole in Oregon and elsewhere
which draws many of the ultimate benefits from the pri
. vale schools and the education they furnish, has not done
its part.
The timo to do that part is here. now.
