Pacific University has the largest endowment of all the
private colleges in the Northwest. In buildings, labora
tories and library it is the best equipped Christian college
in O regon. N ot only does the amount of its productive
funds very far e x ceed that of any of these institutions in
the State, but it is greater than that of all com bined. F or
this reason Pacific has always been able to secure superior
instructors and has never had to depend upon the en
rollment of students for its income.
Pacific University in the past has been rather con
servative in the matter of advertising. A n d it makes
public these statements now , only because there are
reasons w hy its seems advisable. Pacific still adheres to
its policy of desiring students rather than numbers; of
