-morning, of June 2oth. I have lieeu
constantly "on the go.'-? 1 have visited
over one- hundred families, tarrying
the search for student to the sacred

have found at least one hundred joung

I -can not tell how many of tins num-l-r
will register in Willamette this
year, hut know there will In quite a

send our children this year, but wilt
next." I risk nothing in saying that
we ran set the students if we continue
the search for them, and will do what
'tight to ! done to proierly provide
for them when I key di come.
I rind myself constantly asking this
question. "Ikies j Salem want a great
school?" I Ix-lj.-vf a majority "of our
people would answer-- this question
with a big "YES." providing it ..could
tome to i heii j wit hoot much effort up
on their part. Permit me to say, it
may route. that way, bill the rom'mg
will Is- much more certain if all will
take hold and da their ln-st lo hasten

the lead, by giving a rousing subscrip
tion toward providing for the 'debt and
join hands with the Alumni, in put
