Compulsory Tax Wins
(Continued from page 'one)
Cniversify. This point should not he con
sidered today, for I feel the statement of
President Campbell that next year the
board of regents will assume the salaries
of the coach, assistant conch, etc., which
will reduce the sum total of the expenses
considerably. Thereforet we will not need
so much in the fund for next year.
“I, for one, hate to feel that we are
forced to pay this tax. It. should he rather
that we want to pay.”
Leslie Too go was the next to express his
"When the payment of these salaries of
the athletic directors has been assumed
by the board of regents, then we may well
consider the question, not of making the
tax voluntary, hut—-perhaps—of reducing
the lax. That, however> is not the ques
tion now. The faculty committee has ask
ed us for our opinion as to whether the
tax. as it now stands, shall he compul
sory or voluntary. A tax is, and always
has been, compulsory. It is surely not
right that a part of the students shall pay

Might Publish Statistics
Harry Drill suggested that, inasmuch
as Several of the faculty members were
dreadfully opposed to the compulsory
tax, it might be well to pass the volun
tary failure, for if we should reject it,
there were possibilities that these faculty
members might publish some reports in
their possession on the condition of ath
“A story of the non-paying feature of
our athletics, printed in, say the Port
land Oregonian, would mean dire mis
fortune to us as a student body,” said
Mr. Drill. “I have seen the figures that
these men intend to quote and it is a
fact that they are not a boost for inter
collegiate athletics.”
i.'loyd Dawson took the floor and dis
cussed the question on the point of ex
"Facilities were given out at the first
of the semester for paying class taxes,
and less than 50 per cent paid at that
time,” said Mr. Dawson. “Is this the
way you want your student body funds
raised? According to the constitution
of the associated students, no one can
take part in any student body activity or
participate in the meetings, or hold of
fice, who has not paid his student body
tax. Consider that the voluntary sys
tem were adopted. Then, at every elec
tion, there would be the trouble of find
ing out who has paid and who has not, to
determine who was entitled to vote.
“The proposition resolves itself into
the question of whether we want inter
collegiate athletics or not. If there is
not enough money to support them, it is
certain they cannot exist.

would have to beg students to join our

a team representing only one-half of the
students. We might even have to have a
committee whose business it would be
to weed out the members and non-mem
bers. It is absurd.”
That the student body tax bears the
same relation to the student body as the
civic tax does to the citizen is the opin
ion of. Merlin Hatley.
"Did we pay" our student body tax be
cause we wanted to?” asked the yell
leader. “No. We paid it because there
was that compulsory element back of
it. Do we, as citizens, hunt out the tax
collector and pay him our taxes? Why
should we, any more, go around to the
student body tax collector and offer out
of the kindness of our hearts the propos
ed sum levied upon us as members of
the associated students? The Univer
sity must maintain its standard of finan
cial integrity. The bills must be paid
and the money must always be there to
pay them.”
George Rebec argued that it was a
matter of principle—that it would be a
far better attitude to assume in paying
this tax if the students could have the
privilege of giving the money instead <>f
having it taken from them.
Immediately after the discussion, bal
lots were passed around and the vote
Constitution Report Accepted
The report of the standing committee
t n the question of the constitution was
lead and accepted. Thirty-five changes
have tea n made in the reading.
The motion to insert the words “Law
School” in Art. II. Sec. II, was read and
will lie voted on at a special date. The
amendment establishing "The University
of Oregon Co-operative Store,” was pre
sented by Leslie Tooze, representing
Wallace Kakin, who was unable to at
tend, on account of a severe cold.
“This book store will be the nucleus
of tile co-operative store,” said Tooze.
“President Compbell and M. H. Doug
lass have kindly offered to turn over
the entire stock of books in the store.
President Campbell asked to speak on
the history of the University book store,
as, lie said, he wished the early condi
tions of ownership to be clearly under
stood by the students and townspeople.
“Years ago. when the stock of Uni
versity school books was handled by the
downtown stores, it was almost an im
possibility for these stores to keep from
over or under-stocking Such a con
dition was hard on the stores. For this
reason, and this only, did Mr. Douglass
and myself decide to bring the supply of
University books to the campus, decid
ing to assume, personally whatever losses
there might be. There was no thought
of profits. It was merely a convenience,
not an independent commercial ven
Cloyd Dawson submitted an amend
ment to give the executive committee
control over all athletics for which no
“0"s are given.
“Soccer is already in the hands of the
executive committee,” said Mr. Daw
son. “Other minor athletics are not so
well taken care of. If this amendment
be passed, expediency will be obtained in
handling these matters, and finances,
trips, etc., will never have to be brought
up for student body consideration.”
