Three other teachers wcre employed

In an advertisement for the music de

"thli course" Instead of "this curse,"

location of Christian college, tho
board of trustees says:
"It Is the Eden of the West, the
granary of the Pacific coast. The
salubrity of climate, fertility of soil
and production of cereals and fruits
make it by far the most interesting
and delightful section west of the
Rocky mountains. Christian college
is located near the geographical cen

AIR MAIL SERVICE
GAINS IN EFFICIENCY
Washington During the year just
closed the air mail service of the
postoffice department carried a mil
lion and a quarter pounds of mail,
aggregating forty-nine million
letter, on the various baps between
New York and San Francisco. This
body of mail was carried with no
grave accident, with no loss of life,
and with an increase over the pre
vious year of "trips completed" of
almost 10 percent; 92.5 percent this
year against 83 percent last year.
The flying time between New York
and San Francisco is at present three
days. When a sufficient number of
lighthouses are erected to guide night
fliers, this time may be cut in half;
in other words, mail, via airplane, be
tween New York and San Francisco,
is now predicted to be as rapid as our
present Chicago-New York mail,
which averages a day and a half be
tween posting and delivery.
Congress has "starved" the air mail
service to a large extent by a failure
to provide money enough to permit
the extension of the service. It is be
ing freely predicted in official Wash
ington crcles that with the showing
the air-mail service has just made,
it will be impossible for even the
most rabid economists in the capitol
to continue much longer the "do
nothing" policy which prevents air
mail routes from being extended,
and its quick-service blessings given
to the other great commercial centers
of the nation.

PROF. HORNER TO
HUNT OREGON HISTORY
J. B. Horner, professor of history
at O. A. C, has been made director
of historical research in Oregon. Pro
fessor Horner has uncovered many
incidents of rare historical value,
some of which have been published
in his history of Oregon, and others
in the public press. One item of
historical interest was locating old
Fort Hoskins, built by Phil Sheridan
of civil war fame, near the present
town of Hoskins and not, as govern
ment records report, on. the Siletz
20 miles west of there. Professor
Horner hopes to enlist the aid of old
settlers and others in digging up and
recording items likely otherwise to
be permanently lost.
