THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL. SALEM. OREGON. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1919.
' With thi tnllinir of the. hour of 9
'clock Monday 'morning, 3000 school r
'.' esuldren, more or less, in Salem will tie !
reporting for th opening day of tho
fall term of school which will continue
with but few holidays until the com
mencement of the following June.
Unless the pupil has completed the
eighth grade, and happens to be under
the age of 18, there is no way of get
ting away from at leust a fair educa
tion. The legislators .early in iia ptisi-, Constance
cd tews intended to wipe out illiteracy Portland.
entirely in Oregon. The new law goesJ
into effect this fall and part time
schools, for those Who are backward,
will be established. Already Superin
tendent' John. W. Todd has arranged for.
these .suecial schools.
Vocational training will also come In
for inore attention the coming year, due
to the desire of the 1919 legislators to
give the boy or girl special epportunl
ties in'work that is practical.
While there has been a cry of distress
from some localities for lack of teach
ers, Salem has been more fortunate and
the teaching force is now complete, with
a total of 110. '
One year ago on the second day aiwtr
the opening of school, there was an at
tendance of 519 at thejrigh school build
ing." Already there have registered 80
ore pupils for the course than last
year and the indications are that tho
building will be taxed to the utmost.
And this is true of all buildings tho
nnoTincnrfont savs. One year ago,
many families were still in Portland and
other shipyard cities, and it so happens
that the sihp.yards calico, ine lauorui
with the largest families.
Now all is charged. Almost every
habitable house in tho city is occupied
and it is felt one of the big problems
will be that of caring for the increased,
Tho loss of attendance due to families

may be. noted in'the total attendance of

Tho administration of tho University
of Oregon announces that. owing to the
large number of girls who have regis
tered, especially the unexpected num
ber of freshman, that the university
will have to eall on tho sororities and
clubs, as in tho past, to assist in hous
ing this entering class, . ;
It is the policy of University of Ore
gon to take care of nil freshmen girls
on the campus under direct university
supervision. To this plan the sorority
groups have acquiesced, though an
many cases it means financial hard
ship. . :
At the state university the housing
facilities have never been adequate,
and- the fraternity system jkas arisen
out of the neecssit" of the students to
make homes for themselves. At Eu
gene this year there is only accommo
dation for 180 girls on the cnintms, in
cluding the quarters at Hendrirks hall
and two' large building near by that
have been rented as annexes. Nearly
300 girls have asked the university for
shelter, so the authorities are obliged
to turn for help, as they have so ottcn
done before, to the sororities, and they
ask them to fill their houses to lapac
itv. The total enrollment of girls will
bo about 600 this year. In the near tu
tor the state will be called on to furn
ish the .University of Oregon with, at
least one more womon's hall of Tesi

Writes this Dersonal letter to you: -
On this last day of the greatest State r air m the His
tory of Oreogn, in behalf of my family, we wish to thank
the many friends and strangers who became interested 9a
our endeavor to tell the many thousands of people about
our teachings, our lives and our future mission in .Port
land.. We enjoyed the many beautiful exhibits in every
walk of life: we sympathized with those who suffered the
many inconveniences to welcome the stranger within Llicir
gates: and,, we appreciated the many cpurtesies expended
to us in our Hotel Bligh, the City restaurants, - Fair
Ground Booth Exhibitors and at our Bungalow Christian
church restaurant, where we were served with wholesome,
well-cooked and splendidly served meals and attention so
characteristic of Home Life. We feel that you now know
us better. We know that our family has been a wonderful
revelation to many who had been misinformed. We thank
you for your investigation, your kind words of apprecia
tion and know that you will tell your relatives and friends
about what you saw in and heard from our booth at the
State Fair. We know you will come to Portland when you
are in need of our services. We intend to return next
year. I will have won my suit against a so-called Chris
tian (?) newspaper ere then, and, you who have misjudg
ed me will repent and be forgiven. We leave you Sunday
afternoon, and, in parting, will now say: "We had a de
lightful time in the City of Cherries and Loganberry fame
at the greatest Fair ever held in the State, of Oregon?
Blessings of Peace, Health, Success and Happiness to you
all." Very respectfully, '
