'Cordial Supporter' Sprague
'TM’IE CONTACTS between 1 Ik* stale* system of higher educa
iion and the eliief executive of the state* are not num
erous, ))111. they are important. Therefor, if is with "real
elieer that the University of Oregon may extend congratula
tions to Cliarles A. Sprague, governor-elect, who has sig
nificant ly labeled himself “a cordial supporter of higher
education ...”
The plight of the University and the state system as a
"Whole is a serious one. The election of a man who is willing
to recognize this plight is a spur to those who hope* to see
better times on the state campuses.
AGREE implicity with Mr. Sprague's hope ‘‘to see
the institutions make progress . . . the steady strength
ening of faculties and raising of standards.”
It is through these methods that educational progress
may be achieved. Unfortunately for the cause of higher
education, in the past the means of advancement has been
stymied by that perennial bogey —lack of funds. The
strengthening of faculties has been an impossibility. The
mere maintenance of an adequate staff has been difficult,
with promising professors being lured away by offers of
other institutions, with the winning of qualified men to re
place and to add made impossible, and with over-crowded
schedules taxing the efficiency of lliose who have remained
through the lean years.
# * «< #
'JUIU OTHER facts about the state system of higher educa
tion are probably well known to the governor-elect..
It. is his duty as chief executive of the state to be interested
and informed upon the various departments, and in his mes
sage to us, he has indicated both interest and knowledge
in the part of the government which affects us most.
So Mr. Sprague is welcomed to the battalions of those
who are striving for higher education in Oregon. May In*
prove a worthy warrior.
