Not only Chinn, but all nations, will later adopt a modified social

$910,000 Grant
To State Board
Passage of Bill in House,
Senate Would Provide
Solution for Pressing
Financial Problems i
Restoration of salaries and
wages, making up of the millage
deficit, and financial ability to care
for the increase in enrollment were
a step closer last night, as report
reached the campus that the ways
and means committee of the legis
lature had approved a bill giving
the State Board of Higher Educa
tion $910,000.
The original request was for
$973,000. Approval in the com
mittee turns tiie bill over to the
house and senate where it must
be passed before the money is defi
nitely assured.
Although President C. Valentine
Boyer was not in town last night
for a statement, he said earlier
in the week that if the bill was
passed by both houses, it would en
able the State Board of Higher
Education to pay the millage defi
cit that has been such a financial
burden to the officials, since the
millage returns were cut.
“The largest percent of this
money will go for the millage ques
tion,” he states. “Because a stu
dent, when he pays his entrance
fees, does not pay for his entire
education, we will use another
larger share of it to make up for
