Board to Tie-Vote;
(Special to Oregon Daily
PORTLAND, January 25. —
Chancellor Frederick M. Hunt
er was asked by the state board
of higher education in meeting
here today to study further a
plan for a raise in tuition fees
from $10 to $12 per term to be
effective next fall.
The suggested raise, to be levied
on undergraduates, came from the
board’s finance committee and met
immediate opposition by several
A move to amend the finance
committee’s report and refer the
proposal back for further study

First Tie Vote
It was the first tie vote taken
by the board for several meetings.
President W. L. Marks broke the
tie by voting for the raise to be
referred. One member, Mrs. Bea
trice W. Sackett, was not present
for the vote and Herman Oliver,
member of the finance committee
did not vote.
Although the matter was placed
in the chancellor’s hands without
additional discussion, it was learned
that very decided views were tak
en on the raise. Some members
felt that students should be willing
to take a heavier burden in meet
ing the financial needs of the edu
cation system, while others were
opposed to it on the grounds that
Oregon’s students in the higher
learning institutions carry more
than other schools on the coast.
Maturity Talk Topics
Dr. Beck Will Lecture
Tonight in Third of
Touching: upon the “Psychologi
cal Aspects of Marriage,” Dr. F. L.
Beck of the psychology department
will address students tonight at 8
o’clock in Villard assembly for the
third lecture of the Love and Mar
His speech will deal with the es
sential development of love as an
emotion and the different phases
through which the individual goes
as he matures.
Attempting to show the opera
tions of psycho-mechanism such
as projection and the mental dis
cord that it produces in married
life with the effort that must be
made to overcome them will make
up the content of the speech.
“In marriage relationships, it is
incredible how often one attributes
to anothex what actually is a pro
jection of their own deficiency.”
Dr. Beck said.
To Hold Thursday
Tea in Gerlinger
Don’t let the name “faculty cof
fee” scare you out. The affair
known by this name includes stu
dents, too. The second faculty cof
fee of the year sponsored by the
AWS will be held Thursday after
noon, January 27, from 4 to 5 in
Gerlinger lounge. It is arranged
as a means for students to enter
tain their favorite profs, says
Peggy Peebler, general chairman.
All students, both boys and girls,
are invited to come and each bring
a teacher to the coffee. Refresh
ments will be served.
The affairs are held, not as a
means of apple polishing, Miss
Peebler said, but to promote better
personal friendships between in
structors and students.
A class in which modern poetry
is read for appreciation is conduct
