T'l 7HILE at the behest of Governor Meier, the state board of
T ” higher education and the presidents of the five schools of
higher learning attempt to reorganize the sflhools and to cut
expenses, it must be remembered that there are two definite
One rises from the report of the federal survey commission,
with its story of duplications, low percentage of graduates, high
pressure recruiting, per capita cost, and so forth. The commis
sion made recommendations some weeks ago to develop Oregon
schools into better educational institutions.
The other current has its source in the present depression
and was definitely marked out by Governor Meier. His $500,000
cut from the appropriations, followed by the necessity for fur
ther reductions in expenditures as demanded by the state board
of higher education, is a movement quite different from that
of providing a better educational system. As. the Emerald said
on the day of release of the report, the problem of the com
mission was to see that Oregon gets full benefit for each dollar.
The problem of reducing the dollars is quite another matter.
The task which is set before the schools assumes a double
aspect. Now it is not only to search for those parts of the
report which it is best to adopt, but it is to eliminate every
dollar of expense not proven necessary.
The board of higher education and the presidents of the insti
tutions are all being subjected to these cross-currents. If they
can direct the two together, they are to be praised. And it is
quite possible that better schools may be had for less money.
Yet, in treating the two problems as one, there is likewise
a double danger. Just as the reward of treating the two prob
lems as one is greater, so is the risk increased. It is possible
that on one hand the desire of the presidents to maintain prestige
for their institutions will lead to few or no economies being
perfected. On the other hand, there is danger that the cry of
the dollar will drown out any sense of proportionate loss—for
instance as salary cuts might lead to a poorer grade of pro
fessors, and so lessen the value of the entire system.
Under the circumstances, with two problems to treat instead
of one, and with two rewards to be gained or two faults to bo
found, it behooves the state of Oregon—citizen, governor, and
presidents alike—to tread lightly on the educational field.
LOCAL committee is preparing to fight the referendum on
the oleomargarine tax bill passed by the legislature. The
tax was not planned to raise money for the state, but to make
sale of oleomargarine impossible and so to increase butter sales.
In the plainest words, it was passed to help Oregon dairymen
sell more butter at a higher price.
Oregon dairymen do need help but for an entirely different
reason than the price of butter. The tax load has been placed
in most instances on the landowner, and it is there that the
dairyman feels the pinch. With the move against oleomargarine,
farmers plan to right one wrong with another. They do not
propose to supervise margarine production, but to prohibit its
sale. To that end they are using a tool which they have not
often used before political pressure.
Oleomargarine is not seemingly of prime importance to many
Oregon students. They cannot eat it because state law prohibits
coloring it when the food is to be sold. Of interest to students,
however, is this latest example of the American system of bene
fiting one class at the expense of another until no one is bene
fited at all.
Just to spite the Emerald, Calvin Coolidge came back on the
front page yesterday.

^ Steps Toward
THE UNIVERSITY BEYOND
Horizons is a series of editorial
articles prepared by members of the
Emerald staff in an attempt to sug
gest possibilities and opportunities in
the future of the University of Ore
gon. Definite constructive criticisms,
perhaps at times appearing for the
present rather Utopian in nature, will
make up the bulk of the writings.
MUST OUTSIDERS PAY?
In a l-alk before the board of
I higher education yesterday,
Governor Meier presented some
interesting figures concerning
the cost to the state of educat
ing out-of-state students. The
“Each student costs the state
of Oregon $276.99 a year. . . .
Included in our enrollment are
1613 students from outside the
state of Oregon. The survey
suggests that many of these
have come on account of thp
lower standards maintained in
Oregon institutions. The tuition
fees charged do not begin to
cover the cost of educating this
large number of out-of-state
students. In fact, at the rate of
$150 per year charged by the
college for non-resident tuition,
the state loses $126 99 per year
for each out-of-state student, or
a total of $204,834.87 per year.
Here is a clue for saving money
for Oregon without in any way
impairing the efficiency or low
ering the standards of our edu
The fact that students from
neighboring states should be
given an absolute handout of
$126.99 of course has little to
be said in its favor, that is as
long as those students are only
attending Oregon’s schools be
cause they have been unable to
pass entrance requirements at
their home institutions.
But on the other hand, there
are many of the above men
tioned 1613 students who have
come to Oregon because they
like the state, they sense the
opportunities that can be had
here, and because, as is often the
case, they can get the courses
here that they cannot elsewhere.
Another point might be taken
into consideration, too. When
we consider that many of those
coming to Oregon will probably
settle down in the state, and
when we consider also that
many of those who live in the
state will probably settle down
perhaps in the East, or some
other place outside of Oregon,
where the benefits accruing
from their education do not re
turn to the Oregon taxpayer,
then we have a question of eth
ics as to whether the state does
not get as much good from the
visiting students as from stu
dents native to the state.
It is possible that a distinc
tion might be made as to the
age of students. Those who are
of age to register as voters, it
would seem, should be allowed
the privileges of the state's edu
cational resource* on the same
basis as Oregonians; and those
who are under age, whose home
and parents are in some other
state, should pay the out-of
As to the requirements for
both entrance and fees, a bal
ance should be found between
the two, after taking the above
suggestion into consideration.
Entrance should be rigid, that
would cut out undesirables. Fees
for students who had not
reached voting age should at
least be made high enough so
that the burden of educating
them would not be too heavy on
We then have a situation
amounting to this: A University
where younger students who can
meet the requirements and are
able to pay may attend; a Uni
versity where older students,
who are assumed to be studying
with serious intent, are granted
the same rights as native Ore
gonians; a state which stands
as good a chance of reaping the
benefits from educating out
siders, as it does from educating
its own students; and yet a
state which does not close its
eyes to the value of having stu
dents with different points of
view and different standards on
its eampi to mingle with its ow n
men and women.
