It was seldom that the AAU

Representatives Voice Five Nay Votes;
Concurrence by Upper House Necessary
On Minor Amendments in Building Issue
By J. NICHOLS and K. STITZER
Senate Bill No. 25G—the so-called “student union’’ author
ization bill, appeared today almost certain to become law within
the next few days.
The bill went back to the senate Wednesday for concurrence
on minor amendments after the house passed it Tuesday with
only five dissenting votes.
Concurrence on the amendments hy the senate (which pre
viously passed the bill unanimous
ly) would leave signature by the
governor the only necessary step
toward its becoming law.
Governor Charles A. Sprague,
contacted Wednesday, declined to
make a definite statement until he
received the bill from the senate,
but indicated that “in all prob
ability” he would sign it.
The measure would authorize
the state board of higher education
to float a $250,000 bond issue for
construction of the student union
building at Oregon. A similar pro
vision is also made for an audi
torium building at Oregon State
Funds for repayment of the
bonds would come from building
fees, rental from University prop
erties, revenues from use of the
student union building itself, and
gross revenues from athletic con
tests and student activities.
Representative Richard L. Neu
berger (D., Multnomah), Oregon
ex-'35, voted against the bill in
the house. In a wire to the Em
erald Tuesday, he explained that
he had voted against the building
measure because bonding com
panies required that student build
ing fees be pledged as security on
the bonds. He had hoped, Neu
berger declared, that these $15 an
nual building fees could be aban
doned in order to aid needy stu
“Otherwise, bill is all right and
I wish the University the utmost
pleasure and success in its new
building,” he wired.
Plans for the union building as
now authorized are still in the ex
perimental stage. It will be con
structed in units, according to cur
rent opinions, and student needs
