Since its defeat in the 1931 elec

Boyer Strikes
at 20-Mill Tax
Limitation Bill
University Would Close,
Says President
Morse Is Speaker
Gilbert Joins in Attack on
Measure; Renner Asks
Student Support
President C. V. Boyer took a
stand of active opposition to the
proposed 20-mill tax limitation
amendment yesterday when he in
formed a throng of students, fac
ulty, and townspeople that in event
of the passage of the bill at Tues
day’s general election “without
special legislation the University
would close indefinitely—probably
next June—or at best could con
tinue for only a part of next year.”
Boyer's talk climaxed a series of
faculty denunciations of the 20
mill and healing arts amendments
delivered before yesterday’s mass
meeting in Gerlinger hall.
Dr. Boyer intimated that the
University has not officially joined
the fight before now because the
charge might be made that its fac
ulty members were “selfish,” as
the institution is tax supported.
The wave of opposition to the mea
sure, however, has convinced the
officials that thinking people are
beginning to understand the intent
of the amendment, which, he de
clared, is to further the selfish in
terests of those sponsoring it,
rather than benefitting the public.
Gilbert Speaks
Evils of the bill were also point
ed out by James H. Gilbert,) dean
of social sciences, who condemned
it as a “destructive measure which
has not one constructive idea from
the first word to the last.” Dean
Wayne L. Morse of the school of
law attacked the proposed healing
arts amendment with the warning
that “We must observe its discrep
ancies, and be aware of the racket
eering which might result from its
Dean Gilbert asserted that he
had always been an advocate of
lower taxation, but that he stood
opposed to a reduction so sweeping
in its scope that such state insti
tutions as the school, police pro
tection, and public health, would
be left in the discard. “The bill
tries to standardize and advise
where it is utterly impossible to
standardize,” claimed Dr. Gilbert,
“and misrepresentation of the evil
effects which will be wrought by
the bill is one of the worst parts
of the campaign.”
In showing the effects which the
bill will have on the school system
of Oregon, Dean Gilbert explained
that the bill allows for but two
mills to be allotted to schools. At
the present time, the elementary
schools alone are exceeding two
mills in their expenditures, to say
nothing of money needed by the
high schools and the University of
At the present time, it would be
possible for the University to se
cure money from other sources
through the legislature, but should
the 20-mill tax limitation bill be
passed, there would be no money
with which to pay a governor, a
legislature, or any organ of the
state government. Dean Gilbert
pointed out that any legislature
would quickly decide that a state
system of government was far
more important than a University,

Kehrli Finds Midwest Cities
Hard Hit by Tax Limitation
4413EPORTS show tax limitation
measures which have been
passed in other states aren’t work
ing out so good,” said Herman
Kehrli, director of the bureau of
municipal 'research and service and
executive secretary of the leagues
of Oregon cities, on his return
Wednesday from Chicago. In the
midwest metropolis he represented
Oregon municipalities at the an
nual convention of the national
federation of leagues of municipal
"West Virginia and Michigan,"
he went on to say, “have passed
the most drastic tax limitations.
N’ext year 78 out of 110 cities will
not be allowed to levy taxes for
operating expenses. In many of
these 78 cities, all civic functions,
including the fire and police de
partments have been discontinued,
the city as an organized body prac
tically closing down.”
Movements to give cities a share
as high as 25 per cent of the state
gasoline tax have been launched
in many of these destitute cities,
he continued.
To meet the emergency munici
palities of Wisconsin and Michi
gan have banded together for co
operative purchasing. In Michi
gan the smaller cities have seved
about $50,000 on fire hose alone
through cooperative purchasing.
Planning, Kehrli said, is expand
ing and including not only cities
but also rural districts. The scope
of the planning is also being en
larged to include adult eeducation
and things of social significance
besides the purely physical aspect.
On his way east Kehrli attended
the national conference on city
planning held held at St. Louis.
Marshall N. Dana represented the
four northwestern states at this
conference. Reports indicated, said
Mr. Kehrli, that the federal pro
gram for regional planning was
getting enthusiastic support from
all regions.

(An Kditorial)
DURING this week-end the ties of affection and interest that
hind together Oregon and her host of friends throughout the
state are strengthened and made more firm. The campus is thronged
with those who attended here in former years, the grads; and in
addition we are host to the fathers of present Oregon students. Both
groups are equally interested in the welfare of the school. The grads,
because of the memories and loyalties begotten by their years spent
on the campus; the dads, because they have a very real concern
j over the future of the institution in which their sons and daughters
! are acquiring education.
This week-end means much to Oregon. Our guests are close to
us through mutual interest and family affection. We have prepared
to give them a welcome that will linger long in their memories for
its expression of respect and faith. We have planned rallies, dances,
and a football game for their pleasure, and we hope they will leave
feeling that we have an interest in them as sincere and heartfelt as
that they have expressed in us.
Our football team, appearing Saturday against Montana, is de
termined to give our guests an example of real Oregon fight and
1 drive, which will show that Oregon is definitely headed for the top
of the Pacific coast conference again this season.
Students, the real friends of the University of Oregon are on
I the campus now. We are given an opportunity to show our grati
tude and loyalty. Let our visitors konw in no uncertain manner that
there is a world of warmth and sincereity behind the words “Wel
: come, Dads and Grads"!
