THE DAILY MISSOULIAN, MISSOULA, SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 1902 UNIVERSITY Of MONTANA An Institution of Learning that is Growing Fast. THE STATE TAKES A PRIDE IN IT Additions That Are Being Made Will Add to thq Accommodation) of Students. "With an Interest more intense than ever before r re the people of the state following the commencement exercises at the University of Montana which mark the close; of its seventh year. The friends of the University everywhere are happy. When such an institution is launched there are, of course, many misgivings and uncertainties. The first years. esDeciallv of an educational institution, are years of struggle and slow growth. Supporters are usually few, for a fear haunts most men that their connection with a failure may render their own personality less successful. But the University of Montana had staunch friends from its very inception and, although they may have been! few in the beginning, they did not falter but remained steadfast and earnest in a cause wherein their hears centered. Today the University of Montana is not an experiment. The trial stage has long since been passed and in the roster of American schools of learning our state's institution is named among those which have come to stay for all tim, to grow with each succeeding year, to draw students and and. frieinds from a constantly expand ing circle and destined finally to take a conspicuous place among seats of science and letters in all our land. A few years ago men of affairs would have almost scoffed (if, indeed, they did not) at the Idea of a Montana State University. Wise ones carried doubt in their heads, and some looked a long quarter of a century ahead and whispered: "It will be then even before such an institution shall com-mand the respect of our own state to say nothing of what the greater out side world will think." But over a fifth of that quarter of a century has (now passed and it is with pride that the people; of Montana point to the handsome buildings adorning the college grounds and say that there lies the nucleus of one of the most important states' colleges of America. Almost every village, town and city of the state is represented in the classes at tne University. From an almost purely local school it has grown and broadened and lifted itself into a college recognized, supported and loved by the people of Montana. With each succeeding semester its influence has widened until today the youth of our state, of both sexs, cherish as among their fondest hopes the time when they may be privileged to call it their alma mater. With each succeeding year, too, the faculty has been improved and added to and the curriculum broadened and made more comprehensive. There has been no rest in these two great particulars and students everywhere realizing and appreciating this have extended earnest recognition. TFot a time there was considerable agitation for the removal of the University from Missoula. It was not urged that its' location was not fit in many respects, but there were other ambitious towns in the state, and earnest efforts to wrest the college from Missoula were made. But they were destined to failure and for many months the agitation has not been heard of. Indeed, there can be no doubt but that it is dead for all time. At thet recent convention here of the Montana State Teachers' association, when almost every prominent educator in the state was present there was not a voice raised in behalf of the one live plan to remove the University. Instead, by a unanimous vote and united expression Missoula was named as the erne fitting place for the enlargement and prosperous expanding bl the state institution. Indeed.even the careless observer, saying naught as to the man or woman who devotes deep and careful thought to such matters, Missoula stands paramount in all claims for recognition. Its location, its climatic ad-vantages, its pure water, many ihomes, beautiful surroundings and, .above all, its rarifled moral atmosphere are such as to commend themselves to all who are seeking a uni-Tersity site that approaches the ideal, During the past winter the partial burning of Science Hall was regarded by many as a serious blow to the pro gress of the University, but the dam- age done will be repaired and more- more because Science Hall will be de- .Hdedlv more compete than it ever was. Friends rallied at a time when they were most needd and the build ing as it will appear when complete again will be a vast improvement up on what it was. The contract, al ready let, for the rebuilding of the damaged part, calls for an outlay of 14,200. In the matter of land the University, already well supplied, will be in pos sesion of an abundance by a year from this time. In the United States senate Mr. Gibson introduced a bill granting a very large section of the slope of Old Sentinel to the Universi ty, in tnis parcel there are some thing like 480 acres. This In addition to the forty acres given by the Northern Pacific railway company place the college in possession of al most the entire western slope of Old Sentinel. Among the buildings to be construct ed during the coming school year will be a Women's Hall and a Gymnasium The Women's Hall is already in pro cess of construction and will be, a model of its kind. The Gymnasium will cost between $8,000 and $ 10,000. These are some of the larger improvements to be made during the next twelve-month. Other improve ments in the way of walks, steel gates at the two main entrances and granite pillars in the front of the grounds will be among the other fea tures to add to the general attractive ness of the place. Dr. Craig, whose tact, energy and great ability have done so much for the institution, said yesterday to a representative of the Missoulian: "You may say that the trustees, fac ulty and friends of the University never felt so happy over the prospects of the institution as they do at this commencement time. The skies are indee,d bright, and every true" friend of education in Montana should re joice." Aletter from a prominent educa tor who is connected with the Smithsonian Institution, at the national capital, received a few days ago says among other things: "Your university is being watched by leading scholars and educators of the east and on every hand the prediction is made that some day, not so very distant, Montana will have within its borders one of the leading schools of learning in the entire west. We havei watched the growth of other state universities in the west and far west and it should be a source of satisfaction to you to know that we feel the University of Montana has more earnest friends behind it." President Craig, referring to the friends of the University at Washing ton, said: "We have always had very earnest friends at the national capital. Sena tor Clark and Senator liibsom are heart and soul for the advancement of the institution and there is nothing they will not do to aid us. "In the matter of government docu ments, records, etc., there is probably not a college in the entire west so well equipped. Much of this government literature and printing is of the very highest excellence and in itself makes a most valuable reading and reference library. "The future of the University is not at all in doubt. That it is bound to grow, grow rapidly and healthfully, is mv firm belief. Almost every person in the entire state is interested in its welfare and such a unanimity of feeling can have but one result The University is reany the pet pride of the people not of one: section but of almost every comer of the state. The natural jealousies which were aroused at one time have died away and we find Bozeman and Billings in accord with Helena, Butte and Kalispel in the firm conviction that Missoula is the ideal place for the state's great est educational institution." WORK OF SPRAYINC Fruit Tree Inspectors 'Begin Campaign on Pests Tomorrow. Monday the state board of horticulture will start spraying fruit trees in Missoula.
