school spirit was shown by .both stu
dents and' faculty from the first day

ercisea. It. is without a doubt, that
everyone who attended the session
; feels that Uieir time has' been 'very
. well spent. : If a teacher ..was lacking
in enthusiasm or needed an inspiration
when she entered the -Normal ''school
six weed's ago, before the term closed
she could not possibly have escaped the
tram of both. As for the .Normal, lac
ulty, they feel that no other session
could equal the one -just closed. .Thoy
had tke interest of every- student at
heart and they likewise ' received the
support of everyone in making the sum
floor school both a pleasant and pront
able one for all.
"fcViday morning the Normal school
classes met in regular session until
10:30 when, the last chapel of the sum

public--instruction, -who gave a very
interesting, address - to . the students.
He expressed his deep gratitude of
meeting with so many of Oregon's pro
gressive teachers at the Oregon Nor
mal school and he congratulates our
state on the professional growth made
in the school from year to year. He
explained how "teachers who have pre
pared for their work in the state nor
mal school, have the big advantage
over the teacher who has not attended
nick an 'institution of learning. He
aid that statistics show that where
the normal trained teachers are hired,
tho attendance of the school is rinsed
13 per cent. He told how out of the
four states, Oregon, liluiio, Washing
ton and Montana, Oregon's standards
tor the teachers course was the highest
r.ud that -the standards of our state
had been adopted which proves that
Oregon's standards tire the highest
and are to be looked up to" with
feeling of pride. Mr. Churchill stated
that much was being done in our state
to chance the term of school in the
rural district from six ' to eight
months and that it can be required
by law that the term be lengthened.
I he state course ot studv, he says,
plays a very important part provided
all ot the teachers unite in making it
uniform throughout the state: He told
the school of the new .pamphlet which
would be sent out in early September
wiiiuh will give many good suggestions
tor rural schools and esiec.inlty tor the
construction of the scnool building it
self which will make the building of

great service which this pamphlet will

When you expect to Btop or turn, do

Do not dodge in and around cars. In

' Do not presume too much when you

Do not cut in in front of a street

When you get tho "go'' signal from
a traffic officer remember to give the
pedestrian time to get out of the way.
When you see. people on the curb

" It had been clearly established today
that a fire that was not touched off by
an explosion started tho disaster. As
indication of the impossibility of deter
mining the start of this fire was the al
most humorous range of theories which
ran the gamut from a lighted cignrotte
to a bomb from a mysterious airship.
Bomb theories were set aside today as
not worthy, at least at this time, of con

investigators said, that the explosions

Some idea of this let-go of tons of
dynamite, lydite, dunite, nitro cellulose
and mecr gun powder, was seen today
when a United Press representative
went to the far end of the peninsula
where the major explosions occurred.
Most of the terrain at that point is
made land. It narrowed to about 40 or
50 feet to the pier where stood the
barge load of nitro cellulose. Two rail
road (racks jutted against the pier. On
these trucks were four cars of high ex

Just west of this T' point that was"
an indescribable jumble of cars arc scat

however, they were ordered from the

When I lie summer school at the Uni
versity of Oregon comes to nn-enil Fri
day of this week, l'rofessnr Timothy
Cloritn, according to the closest esti
mate he can make, will nave completed
his l.'l.iiOHin elnss since he began teach
ing, in all his twenty-one years of
service he hus not fai'cd on account of
sickness, conflicting duty, or for any
reason whatever to meet every single
class for which lie hus been scheduled.
"Absent" has nevor been entered oppo
site his name.
Dr. Cloran, whose name appears in
Who's Who in America," us one of
the most distinguished Oregoniaus, is
professor of French, Spanish and Ital
ian. All college hours are too short for
him when he is teaching tncsn subjects.
From -the first tap of the bell to the
last shuffle of the departing foot, he
drives hard at his language work with
the fervor of an enthusiast. It is with
sorrow that he admits that once or
twice in his twenty-one years he was a
minute lute to dnss, thus losing valua
ble time for French and Spanish that
can never he ninde up in all eternity,
and smirching an otherwise spotless rec
ord. Dr. Cloran is a man of two enthusi
asms. Besides being a militant advo
cate of the study of the Komuiicc lan
guages, he is perhaps the best exponent
of intensive gardening in his part of
the state. The whole of his yard, in
most years even his parking strip, be
sides the neighboring lots, are a living
exhibit of whut Oregon soil, lovingly
nursed and enriched, can produce to the j
square inch. i
Dr. Cloran 's classes have averaged 50'
students, making a total of (ISO.toO, or I
more than half a million student class
nours to his credit in twenty-one years.
The Isst ten years of this record has
been made at tho University of Oregon.
