The Y. W. C. A. was established in
Salem only two years ago, rather us an
experiment, with small quarters in the
Knight home on Liberty street. But as
the need was greater than untie ipntrd
it soon became necessary to move into

apartments especially designed for the

over the Roth Grocery company store.
Because of its proven ability to assist
young women, the management feels
that the Association is in n position to

current expenses. This year, $3,500 is
required on a budget of $5,500. As'ttro

the common school fund which is de

lands. This fund now totals almost
$0,000,000 and is loaned on first farm
mortgages nt 6 per cent interest.
The board also has charge of and
loans the Agricultural college fund of
$193,909.67; the Univtrsity of Oregon
fund of $100,958.82; and the Durbjnk

"By the act of admission of Feb
ruary 14, 1859, sections 16 and 36 in
every township were set aside to tho
state for the benefit of schools. There
were also 46,080 acres set apart for the .
use and suport of the state university.

would have been of enough greater
value to sell at a later date for a sum
equalling tiie total of the present fund
of $0,390,889.08 and the interest which,

"The present unsold land in the
state totals about 025,000 acres. Up to
