Hoyt Flays Censorship
In 'Press, Peace’ Talk
Alum, Ex-Oregonian Publisher, Tells
Campus Uninformed World Doomed
‘ This world cannot continue to exist half informed and half
uninformed,” declared Palmer Hoyt in summing up a frank
and hard-hitting lecture given last night in the music school
auditorium in connection with the annual Don R. Mellett
Memorial Lecture series.
Speaking on the subject “The Press and Peace,” the former
Oregonian editor and publisher did not view the present situa
tion with optimism. He painted a black picture about press

Chancellor Urges $700,000
Salary Increase to State Board
By The University News Bureau
Dr. Frederick M. Hunter, retiring chancellor of the Oregon
state system of higher education, in his report Monday to the
finance committee of the state board, recommended a $700,000
increase of the budget to take care of the heavily increased
enrollment of returning war veterans in the several insitutions
of the system.
To Assemble
Alum Ernest Haycox
To Speak At Igloo
Ernest Haycox, novelist and
graduate of Oregon in the class of
'23, will be the speaker at a special
assembly for junior and senior stu
dents in the music school audi
torium at 11 a.m. Thursday. Hay
cox, who became president of the
University of Oregon Alumni as
sociation last December, is coming
to the campus under the sponsor
ship of this organization in order
to acquaint upperclassmen with the
alumni group and give them an
opportunity to meet its head.
Journalism Major
A native Oregonian, Haycox
studied at the University school of
journalism. He began writing
while he was attending Oregon and
sold his first stories at that time.
According to Haycox they were
very elemental stories “the villain
constructed of solid rock and the
stormy waves at sea never being
less than 40 feet high.”

On the basis of an estimated en
rollment of 5500 to 6000 in Oregon
State college, 4600 in the Univer
sity and proportionate increases at
other schools in the state system,
Chancellor Hunter recommended
an increase of 140 in the combined
staffs and 802 increases in salary,
averaging $371.75. Salaries will re
quire a total increase of $29S,145.27
in the budget.
President's Increase
Hunter recommended an increase
in the basic salaries of the presi
dents of the major institutions
(University and state college) to
$12,000 a year—-the advance to be
made in steps of $1000 each year
until the maximum is reached. The
salaries of deans, now at $5000
level, were placed at $6000 to $7500
in the chancellor’s recommenda
tion, and the compensation of heads
of departments moved up to $5500.
"In face of the present deficit of
highly qualified personnel in schol
arly and technological fields,” said
the chancellor, "these increases'are
highly necessary.”
March Meeting
When the rush of the war veter
ans back to college began last fall
the budgets for all the institutions
and activities of the state system
of higher education totaled $3,
626,355.25. This was raised for the
1946-47 year to $5,166,820.18. Of
this the University is allotted $1,
