Dr. C. J Bushnell, President o f Pa-
c'fic University, was given an enthusi­
astic welcome last Friday night by the
terrible time together last Thursday
evening, and Bill came out feeling con­
siderable worse than the beast, and as
j a consequence has been walking on
crutches, when he has walked, the past

Bill tried to lead the calf to water,
I but the calf didn’t want any o f that
aqua pura stuff and started down the
vineyard hill at breakneck speed, with
| William holding un to the rope and
talking Esperanto like an expert. How-
1 ever, the calf, not being a college grad-
juate, didn't understand William and
steered him between two sheds and on
to an upturned harrow and, ouch! One
o f the steel teeth entered William’s
right leg near the ankle, penetrated
the flesh to the flhia and encircled the
member, cutting the muscles and calf
o f the leg for about six inches. The
victim wrapped up hi injured extremity

given in his honor at the Oregon Hotel
in Portland.
The Fountain Grill was well filled,
there being about one hundred guests
present. Several of the older Alumni
were present, including Mrs. Harriet

graduate, and Dr. Rafferty, o f the class
o f 1867.
Mrs Lois Parker Myers, President o f

Dr. Bushnell, in his reply, made many
interesting statements about the school
which were new to some o f the Alumni
themselves, and which shows an ad­
vancement for the University.
In part he said:
“ Do you know that Pacific University
has buildings, equipment, campus and
educational force which, in quality o f
work done, make it rank with Beloit of
Wisconsin and Amherst of Massachu
setts?” he asked. ‘ Its endowment of
$250,006 is soon to be enlarged. It now
has modern building equipment worth
$20d,000 more, including an excellent
new library building and a hall o f resi­
dence for women not surpassed by any
other building of its kind in the West.
“ In its intercollegiate contests, Pa­
cific has won 15 out o f 26 intercollegi­
ate debates against the strongest insti­
tutions in the West, and in the past has
won the state oratorical contest from
all other Oregon colleges four times,
including the contest last year.
“ It is today a standard college ap­
proved by the United States Bureau of
Education, and is one of the three col­
leges in Oregon whose graduates are
entitled to teach in the four-year high
schools o f this state.
“ Since the new administration began,
the first o f September, many changes
have been made that strengthen ma­
terially the work o f the institution.
New strong members have been elected
to the board o f trustees; business and
domestic science courses have been in­
troduced into the curriculum o f study;
the entfa’-' e requirements have been
brought into line with the course of
study for Oregon high schools; the by­
laws of the institution have been re­
vised, and the internal management
reorganized with a large increase of

in Inaugural Parade Through
Them of Throat Trouble

News comes to this office from Gaston
o f a little escapade pulled off by three
boys o f that place last week, which
was dear to their hearts and also to
their pocket books. The boys were
bent on pleasure, and after the joyful
stuntfest was over the young Americans
were no longer pleasure bent—they
were broke, and just a little bit more
than that.
These three aforesaid boys were last
week troubled with an i ggravated tick­
ling in the larynx—larynx is right is it
not, doctor, yes it is not; and to quiet
the tickle bacilli they must. “ Frog in
the Throat” wouldn’t do it; nor S. B.
nor lemon drops, the boys had tried
these remedies when in kilts, and they
were strictly no good.
But they all agreed that if there was
one thing that would put their voices in
trim it was good old loganberry wine;
they absolutely knew it would, and they
also knew that Farmer G. Anderson,
living a mile away in Yamhill County,
had a nice supply o f said vintage on
So thither or hither they re­
They emptied some fruit and filled
the jars with the loganberry liquid, re­
marking as they did, “ Now, wouldn’t
that jar you,” and it did jar them.
Jammed and jarred and bumped them
all out o f financial shape, did this epi­
curean episode. For, on finding that
his wine was gone, Anderson got out the
dogs and notified the sheriff o f Yamhill
The up-county bluecoat came to
Gaston, and after a little crossquestion­
ing took the two Grey brothers and
Arthur Potter for a little visit to Mc­
Minnville. It only cost the boys $25
each, or a total of $75, which is not a
great deal for ten gallons o f loganberry
wine, considering the fact that it took
i he tickling out o f their throats.
Two Forest Grove men may have the
honor o f playing in a fife corps on the
Oregon, the grand old battleship bear­
ing our state’s name, when she leads
the fleet through the Panama Canal
in the inaugural parade next year. The
men are John Baldwin and John Butler,
drummer and fifer.
These men are both members o f the
Oregon Drum Corps, which is made up
entirely of old G. A. R. men, twenty-
five in number. Another Washington
County man, J. S. Vaugn, o f Hillsdale,
below Beaverton, is also one o f the
musicians. Only those that wear Uncle
Sam’s uniforms, either in the capacity
of officers or musicians, may be pas­
sengers on the Oregon, and negotiations
are now being carried on between the
Corps, the Oregon delegation in Con­
gress and the Secretary o f the Navy to
the effect that our soldier band be ap­
pointed official musicians.
That they can inspire the present gen­
eration with enthusiasm and patriotism
now as well as when lads under Grant,
was evidenced at Los Angeles a couple
of months ago at the Grand National
Encampment. They were at sea as to
who should lead the big parade o f 8,000
soldiers, and some one cried, ‘ ‘Get those
old, gray-haired vets from Oregon. I
heard them at the hotel and they are
great.” The Oregon boys, with John
Baldwin and John Butler to the front
as drummer and fifer, did lead that
soldier crowd down the boulevard, and
they do say that it was one of the most
inspiring living pictures ever seen.

Wednesday evening the Board o f Di­
rectors o f the Commercial Club met at
the call of the president, Harry Goff,
and elected officers for the ensuing
year and discussed the immediate work
o f the Club.
Harry Goff was elected president at
a meeting of the newly-elected directors,
following the meeting o f the members
last Tuesday evening.
The officers
elected last night were: Secretary,
George Currey; Vice-President, Chas.
0 . Roe; Treasurer, Chas. Littler.
Ed. Haines reported the last meeting
o f the Executive Committee o f the
Willamette Valley exhibit for the Pan­
ama Fair and outlined the present plans
of the committee. The State Commis­
sion is heartily in favor o f the plans of
the committee in charge of the Willam­
ette Valley exhibit, and has given
its approval.
Each o f the eight
Valley counties have local committees
of three, the chairman of which repre­
sents the county on the Central Com­
mittee. The Washington County Com­
mittee is Ed. Haines, chairman, Com­
missioner Hanley and County Fruit In­
spector Atwfell. It is now planned to
raise from the eight counties $5,000,
apportioned according to assessed valu­
ation as equalized by the State Assess­
ment Board. This will make Washing­
ton County’s share less than $700.
It was decided to make the first
