Of Colleges Are
Shown in Report
Albany The state board of higher
education has succeeded in obtain
ing buildings with a combined value
of $2,583,047 during the past four
vears without using its tax funds,
according to a report made to Gov
ernor Martin by Dillard L. Marks
of this city, president of the board.
In a letter of transmittal accom
panying the biennial report of the
system, Marks explains how the ur
gent need for additional building fa
cilities at the various institutions has
been partially met through the use
of PWA funds with income from
building fees being used to finance
the loans for the board's match
Only $133,000 of the 2 million
dollar constuction program came
from state sources, according to
Marks' tabulation, and of this amount
$100,000 had been provided in con
tingent appropriations by the legis
lature some years ago, while $33,000
came from the state's restoration
fund on account of loss by fire. An
additional $376,910 was supplied thru
the generosity of private donors.
largely for the new buildings on the
medical school campus in Portland,
A tabulated list appended to the
letter shows one or more new build'
ings for each of the six units of the
system. For several years new build'
ings have been needed on the canv
puses, particularly on those where
rapid increases in enrollment oc
curred, but there were not tax funds
in the board's limited budget to care
for new buildings.
Marks also reviewed the progress
of the institutions in an educational
way and said that a continued
growth of enrollment and increased
demands for services are indications
of the confidence of Oregon people
in their institutions of higher learn
ing. Enrollment for the system will
reach an all-time high of about 10,
950 students for this college year.
The president of the board re

of the board are granted, the funds

Poultry Ranks Fifth in
The poultry industry in Oregon
ranks fifth in cash farm incomes
among larger agricultural commod
ities in the state, according to facts
compiled by the Oregon State college
extension service for use in con
nection with the World Poultry
Congress in Cleveland in 1939.
In 1937 the cash income from
chickens and eggs was $5,191,000 and
from market turkeys $3,753,000. The
two constitute 7.2 per cent of the
cash farm income of Oregon for that
year. This does not include sales of

spending Christmas day
in a hospital. The fun
of Christmas was the
excitement, the noise,
the aroma of turkey and
pies. She didn't pay
much attention to the
doctor "as he examined
her chart. The first
time he said, "I think
you'll be as well off at
home now. But you'll
have to go in an ambu
lance", she didn't hear
him. When the message
penetrated, she ex
claimed, "Don't tell the
folks I'm coming. Let
me surprise 'em!"

had to serve as his ambulance, as it did in many small towns, was
miles away wasn't due back until evening. It would be too bad
to keep Grandma waiting since she expected to leave at once.
What to do? Why call on Pacific Power & Light Company, of
course. Their service trucks had done ambulance duty for him
before. "Sure", answered the P. P. & L. manager, "we'll be glad
to help. I'll round up some of the fellows to handle the stretcher,
and we'll be along in a jiffy."

family, Grandma smiled
