$40,000 Business Placed
In Hands of Manager Root;
Fees to Be rStepped9 Again
When George Root was named educational activities manager to
replace Ralph S. Schomp last spring, he became the educational activi
ties board’s executive administrator to a business with a turnover of
more than $40,000 annually.
’Students fees, which will be stepped again this vear at $7 for fall,
$5 for winter, and $3 for spring- terms, provide $6,634.44 of the ten
tative income budgeted for 1937-38. Educational activities receive 40
Tier cent of the total derived from
fees, with 60 per cent going to ath
letic activities.
Funds Available, $44,357.10
Estimated income for the com
ing fiscal year, including the $6,
634.44 portion of fees, is $39,348.28.
Cash on hand as of June 30, 1937,
is $2,201.21. These sums, plus
$36161 in accounts receivable,
$2,000 in payment from the ath
letic board, and $446 payment from
the athletic board for its share of
the band and administration ex
penses, leaves a total of funds
available as $44,357.10.
Operating expenses of the stu
dent corporation are budgeted at
$40,151 25. Payments on “old”
debts total $5,511.29. Of this last
sum, $4,899 29 is in accounts pay
able, and $612 goes to the alumni
holding company.

come and expense columns of the
educational activities budget is the
Oregana. It is expected to glean
$11,500 and to cost $11,285. Of the
expenses, $2,200 is to be spent on
engraving and $500 on photogra
phy for this year's book. Oregana
circulation is valued at $7,500, $2,
800 is derived from organizations,
