A Balance in Red Figures
"y^HENEVE'R an explosion occurs, a great cloud of dark,
acrid smoke generally puffs up, obscuring the immediate
vicinity, dirt and mud is flung far and wide, the ground
trembles, there is a big noise, and persons upright and persons
otherwise, suddenly duck for cover. The reason everyone ducks
for cover is that the effects of an explosion,—the choking
smoke, the splattering mud, the stinging dirt, the deafening
thunder, the rocking ground—are not respecters of the good,
nor impeachers of the bad, but injure one and all alike.
Just so, in this recent “regential” explosion, the landscape
has been hazy with smoke, for when the slow fuse finally reach
ed the secret powder, great was the puff thereof, and many
were they who sought cover until heads might be raised once
more toward the azure sky without fear of obstructing the path
of some tardy clod swiftly falling back to its original resting
place. Now that the rain has fallen and the atmosphere has
been cleared somewhat, just what may be seen?
First, that the regents really have effected an economy of
some $60,000 in the program which they carried into action.
Second, they have probably worked some good in the re-ar
rangement of departments and faculty members.
But, first, they accomplished these two beneficial actions in
a most clumsy way. Will they deny that a much more gracious
and effective method would have been to consult the deans
of the various schools affected, placing the facts before them,
and requesting that the changes be made by authority through
the heads of the departments? The executive morale of any
executive branch is greatly undermined by such overt and unex
peeted action as was taken by tlie Board of Regents. If the
heads had been told that a cut of a certain amount had to be
made in the budget of that department, it is very probable
that the reduction could have been attained with security and
dignity and a highly desirable spirit of friendly cooperation
would have been fostered between the faculty and the Regents.
Second, those members of the faculty who have been de
moted or dismissed have real cause for grievance because they
were unaware that their positions were in jeopardy, and did
not know of it until they received notice of dismissal or demo
tion after the meeting. Coming late in the season, these mem
bers will have difficulty in procuring positions for next year.
A faculty member of a University is, after all, not a laborer,
and should receive consideration equal to any professional man,
such as the privilege of a year’s notice before dismissal, and
the opportunity of a hearing if there is any question of moral
integrity involved.
Third, this unjustified treatment lays the University open
to investigation by the Amerienn Assoeiation of University Pro
fessors, a national body, which if made, will subject the insti
tution to unfavorable publicity throughout the United States,
with a possible loss in standing in comparison with other uni
versities, and loss of good-will among those in the teaching pro
fession. This result will be of the gravest importance to the
University of Oregon and it might require many years before
the stigma finallv could be removed.
Fourth, the policy of suppressing the facts and not immedi
ately issuing a complete report of the minutes damaged the |
Board of Regents, the administration of the University, and a
number of innocent faculty. Suspicion and rumor became
rampant, and many stories and tales were whispered and
bandied about which have later proved utterly false. The pub
lic mind reacts singularly to the knowledge that public busi
! ness has been suppressed. It immediately assumes that there
1 must be some “politic” reason for such action. It goes further.
It assumes that the business must be of a dishonest or shady
nature, for otherwise, what would be the object in not making
the subject open to inspection?
To summarize, a little good was accomplished. Considerably
more harm was done. A very great amount of harm is still
potentially possible, even probable. It appears, therefore, that
in auditing these books on the recent action of the Board of
Regents, the balance must be written in red figures, and the
responsibility very definitely charged up to the Board of
I Regents.

University Has Outgrown
Income, Says Report
The stringent economies author
ized by the University of Oregon
board of regents at its meeting a
week ago were not the result of an
unexpected emergency, but were
forced upon the regents by a con
dition which has been foreseen for
several years, and against which
various precautions have been tak
en. This underlying condition,
forcing the University to begin cur
tailment of the scope of its work
is the fact that for many years it
has been growing much more rap
idly than its income.
The student enrollment in all
branches of the institution has ■out
grown available funds from state
sources. It has to care for in the
next academic year a student body
which will from present prospects i
be in the neighborhood of ten per
cent larger than the present en
rollment, and more than seventy
per cent larger than that of 1920.
The regents, with an income for
the University only seven per cent
greater than that of 1920, were
forced to make adjustments.
The following statements are
supported by authoratative figures:
At the Theatres 1
HETLIG—Tonight, Friday and
Saturday, Lon Chaney, mas
ter aetor, in the thrilling melo
drama, “The Monster.”

1. The cost to the state per stu
dent is low. Oregon ranks thirty
fourth among forty-one state uni
versities as to receipts per student
and thirty-seventh as to property
inx’estment per student.
2. The University is spending
about as much per student this year
as in 1917, and the income from the
millage per student is the same as
before the war.
3. Salaries are low. The pay of
every rank of officer and instruc
tor is not only below that of the
stronger universities, but it is ac
tually below the average of all
state universities.
Engene Banker Donates
Strip for Canoe Fete
Assurance of a permanent place
from which to see the annual canoe
fete is received with the announce
ment of a gift of a stretch of land
along the mill race. Frank L.
Chambers, Eugene banker, has giv
en to the University a 1000-foot
strip of land on the south bank of
the mill race.
This strip extends from the pres
ent bleachers east along the race
to the launching point of the ca
noes of the fete. This strip was
retained by Mr. Chambers when he
sold the mill race to the present
Rex Shine Parlor
The Only Place to Get
Your Shoes Shined
owners and the recent gift to the
University assures the students of
a permanent tenure of the land.
There is no possibility of the land
along the race being refused as a
location for the canoe fete.
Mr. Chambers has been a warm
friend of the University. He is
one of the outstanding business
men of the city and an active citi
zen. At present he is president of
the chamber of commerce.
The drill grounds immediately
south of the E. O. T. C. barracks
will be the scene of an imperative
military ceremony at 5:15 this af
ternoon, when the local unit of the
R. O. T. C. will stage the fourth
of the series of weekly battalion
drill parades, being held in con
nection with the regular work in
the military department.
An increasingly large number of
people have been attending these
parades, and much favorable com
ment has been given the work
of the officers and cadets of the
unit on the marked improvement
which has been made since the
drills were instituted four weeks
Although no additional phases of
the ceremony will be taken up at

"Towering Masses” Walter m. mason. Architect
O Drawn by Hugh Ferriss
J-JERE the new architecture expresses itself in great vig
orous masses which climb upward into the sky with a
pyramidal profile—gigantic, irregular, arresting. An earlier,
conventional building on the near corner is overshadowed,
engulfed in towering masses of the newer building which
are prophetic of an architecture of the future which is
vividly stimulating to the imagination.
Certainly modern invention—modern engineering skill
and organization, will prove more than equal to the de
mands of the architecture of the future.

Sweet things!
Cross-section oi a
tooth, showing Acid
Decay at the Danger
WHEN you eat
something sweet,
and you feel the
pang of pain in your
teeth, you are being
warned! Acid
Decay has begun.
And if neglected,
Acid Decay may lead to dangerous
abscesses and even serious
infections of the gums.
Squibb’s Dental Cream, made
with Squibb’s Milk of Magnesia,
does much more than keep the
teeth clean and attractive. It safely
and promptly neutralizes the acids
in the mouth which attack the
teeth and gums—especially at that
vital place where gums meet teeth
— The Danger Line. It is the
only dentifrice that affords real
protection from Acid Decay —
protection that lasts for hours
after use. At drug stores.
