Dr. NeNvburn said that it is the understand
in g of the University that a new BA school at
Oregon State would be confined entirely to
undergraduate levels and would not duplicate
the functions of the University School of Business Adminis
The complete text of Dr. Newburn’s statement:
“We were represented at the hearing and presented the Univer
sity’s serious objections to the proposed school. Naturally, we regret
the decision.
“However, it is our understanding that the board action estab

the undergraduate level, will be related clearly to the technical areas
available at the State college, and will not duplicate in major fashion
the functions of the University school of business administration. It
remains to be seen whether this intent will be realized in practice.”

As a result of his conflict with
