OREGON S NECESSITIES.
The University of Oregon is asking the.,
state legislature for un appropriation of
$200,000. Owing to the fact that the
war bus dosed, ho rue changes have been
nrade in the estimates for 1919-11)20 as
submitted in October to the Secretary of
State. The items for armory, $100,000
and for military training,'*$>40,000, have
been omitted as also has the item of
$25,OOO for barracks for which other
more economical provision was made.
The appropriation asked thus provides
only for the maintenance of the Univer
sity on its present basis, to prevent de-.
cay unj lower scholastic standards dur
ing the present period of low revenues to
the University from the millage tax fund
and of high operating costs.
When the bill creating the millage tax
for the University of Oregon was passed
at the legislative session of 1913,
the state property valuation was $954,
22.371.00. It is now $987,533,81X1.00, a
gain of only three ami two-fifths per
cent whereas, if the anticipated annual
tain of 5 per cent increase in valuation
had been realized, the income to the Uni
versity from the millage tax for the
rears 1910 and 1920 would lie $141,703
:n<>re than the income on the present viff
latlcni. And in this time the purchase
ralue of a dollar has decreased fully forty
Yet, during thi- period since 11)1.'!, the
enrollment nf tin- University of Oregon
lum increased TO per rent exceeding in
this manner tlu> expectation of Oregon's
growth ln-lil hv the legislators of 1013
when they passed the niillage tax fund
hill in the belief that the increase in the
state’s valuation would keep pace with
the growth of the University of Oregon.
So, even with the ifHXhtkK) approprl
atom for maintainanee of the present de
partments on their present basis, the
University faces the years of 1019 and
19110 with $-41,708.00 less than the 1918
legislature planned, and this in the face
of the present low purchasing power of a
dollar sixty per cent of its value in
Add'd to this burden the University
must face in order to maintain the pres
ent high standards of scholarship fot
;i!l the children of Oregon who wish to
enter the state University, is the ex
peeled increase of over twenty per cent
in the attendance next fall, this to be
added to the present seventy per cent
increase at the present time over the
enrollment of 101.1. Of the approximate
ly 800 students who went directly from
their classes into the military service
from the University of Oregon, it now
seems certain that a large percentage
will return either this spring or th.
coming fall, to complete their Univer
sity work. In addition, of the hundreds
of high school students who enlisted, a
very large number will be entering col
lege next fall. More high schools by
fifty per cent will be graduating classes
than ever before, and the number enter
ing college from this source will be
To relieve this congestion in the al
ready crowded buildings, laboratories,
and class rooms on the campus, the pro
posed Woman's building for the Univer
sity is virtually as important as tips $100
000 maintainence bill in permitting the
present standards to prevail for 1919
iirnl lOtJO. The building will release
much space at present occupied in other
I’niversity buildings thus making it avail
aide to accommodate the increasing at
tendance of Oregon men and women at
the University. The woman’s building,
which is planned as a center of the activi
ties of the women of the University, nvill
also house the department of physical
education for women, the department of
household arts, the infirmary, rooms for
the meetings of women’s organizations,
and the i|^eennary offices and reception
rooms. Toward the construction of this
building, it is expected sufficient volun
tary subscriptions can he secured to
bring the pivosent donated building fun I
nji to $100,000, this to be added to the
appropriation now being asked of the, leg

THE LEGISLATORS' VISIT.
Members of t lie state legislature visit
ing the campus today comprise the larg
est group ever to visit the University
during the legislative sessions and it is
Oregon's privilege to welcome them cor
dially with the largest group of students
she has ever had enrolled.
Men and women of the University
have always welcomed the interest
shown l>v members of the legislature on
the occasion of their previous visits to
the campus. This year the legislative
bodies are taking time from their duties
iu Salem in larger numbers than ever be
fore in order to visit the State Univer
sity. and the students of Oregon appre
ciate this expression of interest in edu
cation from the leaders of the various
sections of the state of Oregon.
A visit on the campus gives a real pic
| uii - of the University and its activities
! ill. a no amount of pamphlets from de
partment* iuid University literature can
do although containing the same infer
motion. For this reason the student
body of Oregon, coming from virtually
every section of the state as do the mem
bers of the visiting party today, take
more pleasure in entertaining and being
'Jiiid«y’ for the legislative party than in
neeting on the campus any other group
'f prominent Oregon people. Through
he visit being paid to the campus today,
i Oregon com# in closer contact with all
parts of the state she serves.
