At the Weston Normal School the
party was gTeeted by Robert C.
French, president of that institution,
and was led to the assembly ball of
the school where some 240 students
were gathered. President French, to
show that the Institution was not
local high school for Weston, asked
the pupils residing in Weston to arise
then those whose homes were beyond
the town. The latter number visibly
exceeded the former.
President French said afterward
that of the 138 pupils In the normal
department, only 22 are residents of
Weston. In addition are 102 young
pupils In the training department, all
from Weston, their studies ranging
from kindergarten to eighth grade The
age of normal pupils ranges fiom 15 to
27, most of them being 17, IS and 19.
uovernor cnamoeriaia spoke com
mendlngly of the school, saying it
would always have a place In his
heart. Representative Darey, of Ma
rlon, encouraged the friend of the
school by declaring that It Is one of
the Indispensable educational Instltu
tions of Oregon. Representative Vaw
ter, of Jackson, spoke the same sentl
ment and Jocularly said that Governor
Chamberlain's remarks had put him on
record and that they would be remem
bered when he should pacs upon the
appropriation bill of the Republican
legislature. Other speak were
Senator Smith, of Umatilla, and J. H.
Raley, of Pendleton.
The town of Weston took an after
noon holiday to receive the visitors.
At the station, a mile distant from the
school, numerous conveyances were
waiting their arrival, to convey them
up town. The keen Interest of Weston
In Its normal school was evidenced bv
the appreciation Its citizens showed of
the visit of the Governor and the Legislators.
