The budget of the University is
divided into seven distinct groups,
the most all-inclusive of which
concerns expenditures for gen
eral and educational purposes.
The State Board determines the
budget for this group on the ba
sis of the recommendation of the
chancellor through the president
of the University, who consults
the various departments.
The State Board establishes a
budget for each institution.
To arrive at a figure for the
above mentioned group, the
board' first estimates it resources,
then allocates funds in lump sums
to the several institutions. The in
stitutions, meanwhile, prepare
budgets for each department
broken down into such classifica
tions as salary, wages, material
expenses, travel expenses, equip
Only the groups on general and
educational purposes and on aux
iliary activities are controlled by
an annual budget. The remaining
five groups are budgeted when
the need arises.
Moreover, the State Board it
self files for a budget each tw-o
years with the state legislature.
M e a n w h il e, the Universities
make annual budget reports to
the State Board.

Fill Night Classes Offered by U. O.
By GRETCHEN CRONDAHL
Under the glow of street lights,
the campus comes to life again.
A local businessman studies rock
and mineral formations—and pans
a little gold in his spare time. An
ambitious office clerk takes up the
study of retail merchandising. A
busy housewife forgets spring
cleaning as she mixes water colors
to get just the right tint for that
tree in her latest sketch.
Students, townspeople, and pro
fessors enrolled in some 20 night
classes held on the University cam
pus and at Eugene High School are
completing degree requirements,
perfecting hobbies, and broaden
ing their cultural background

Since a slim beginning with four
classes in 1913-14, Eugene’s night
classes have multiplied and re
multiplied to accommodate some
400 students a term. Eugene had
the first night classes in the state,
believes Viron A. Moore, acting
assistant director of the depart
“At first, the night classes—in
Eugene and throughout the state—
were just incidental to the corres
pondence course program,” Moore
“But they’ve grown by leaps and
bounds. Now 3,188 night class stu
dents are enrolled through the Eu
gene office alone, attending ses
sions here and in other communi
ties all over Oregon.”

Scouts Hear Fogdail
Vergil S. Fogdail, director of
men’s affairs, was the principal

Girls who petitioned as counse

selling program are to see Joan
Kelly, program co-chairman, at 4
p.m. today at the YWCA headquar
ters in Geriinger, if they have not
previously done so.
New courses are added on re- ■
quest of the public, Moore said.
Sometimes a group will send in a
petition asking for the setting- up
of a new class. Sometimes a teach
er or a club president will request
the course in the name of his or
“We have no way of knowing
what classes are needed unless
people request them,” Moore said.
17 Students Needed
Classes, once set up, must be
cancelled if not enough students
enroll to keep the program self
supporting. It takes about 17 stu
dents to make a class break even,
since wages, travel and housing
expenses for instructors—every
thing but administrative expendi
tures—must come from class fees.
Fees are now $3.50 per credit
hour, but charges will be raised
next fall to $5. Thus the student
enrolled in the two-credit “Public
Speaking for Business and Profes
sional Men and Women” course
now pays $7 for his term of study,
and would pay $10 next year.
Most of the classes meet in
weekly sessions in campus build
ings. Courses in elementary and
advanced woodworking are held in
the Eugene High School shop.
One of this term's courses which
has attracted top interest is a
class in semantics—the study of
changes in language development

Chess Club Ends Meets
The University Chess Club will
hold no more meetings this term,
President C. Thomas Young re
journeys from Portland each week
to meet with 40 students.
All the state's night classes were
once handled as a branch of the
University's program, Moore ex
plained. The Department of State
Wide Services, an inter-institution
al office with headquarters on the
Oregon campus, has handled the
classes since the unification of the
state’s higher education system.
They use a clothesbasket to
handle the day’s mail in the little
building on Kincaid, which last
year housed the YMCA. The de
partment has its own post office
to send out answers to inquiries
about its four main sendees, night
classes, correspondence courses,
community colleges, and workshop
Through this office passes all
the information, advice, and ma
terials by which the initial four
classes in Eugene have mush
roomed here and in dozens of other
Oregon communities — bringing
campuses, high school classrooms,
and community buildings all over
the state to life again, under even
ing street lights.
