SOLOMON ROCK OF COLLEGE SUPPORT calkins and Larsons oi Lane County lake opposite Sides on lUinage lax i'ian. Opinions have been collected by tne Morning Uregonian irom tne vauous niemtiers ol tne coming session or tne state Legislature as to tneir stand in regard to the University ox Oregon appropriation and support wnen tne soions meet at Salem, January lu. mat tne legislative sentiment is di vided on tins question is siiown by tne answers received irom Lie law makers. Liberal support xor bom in stitutions seems to oe Lie uesiro ol most oi those heard irom, but wheth er it shall be in tne iorin or a mniage tax on increased appropriation has not been generally expressed. Some ravor both the tax and an additional grant, while one or two would lake tne vote at the last election as an in dication that the people oi the State do not wish any more support given the State institutions than is needed tor maintenance. Kegenls rNot Mentioned, the opinion as to tne advisability oi a single Hoard of ltegents is more pronounced, scarcely any of those heard from considering that such a movement is advisable. One excep tion to this belief is Representative Schuebel, of Clackamas county, fie said, “1 do not beiieve in extravagant appropriations for either of the in stitutions, but 1 am in favor of giv ing them sufficient money to take care of their actual needs. 1 am in favor of consolidating the Boards of Reg ents of the two institutions.” Senator floilis, of Washington county, says: ”1 am in favor of botli the University of Oregon and the Agricultural College, and am in favor of making a reasonable appropriation in addition to the standing appropria tion each receives. 1 favor a millage tax for both institutions. From pres ent knowledge and information, 1 do not favor the consolidation of the Boards of Regents of the two institu tions.” Lane County .Men Divided. Two of Lane county’s representa tives, Senator W. W. Calkins and Representative M. Vernon Parsons, are divided on the question of the Millage Tax, Calkins having- no faith in the plan as a means of support for the University, while Parsons believes that it is the correct solution. Cal kins desires ample support, but is op posed to the single Hoard of Reg ents. Willamette University is so con fident of securing the $50,000 gift from J. .1. Hill, that plans are already being made for the celebration ot the event. WILL CHOOSE DEBATERS Special Judges to Pick Tri-State Teams and Also \\ inner of Alumni .Medal.
