would he awarded teachers at
state colleges and universities
under a plan presented last
week by Charles D. Byrne,
chancellor of the State System
of Higher Education.
Byrne, addressing the State
Legislature’s joint ways and means
subcommittee on higher education,
said that colleges need a $3,310,
871 yearly increase in state fund3.
Enrollment Decrease
A previous request for addition
al teaching and civil service staffs
was withdrawn by Byrne on the
basis of an anticipated 8 per cent
decrease in enrollment. Byrne
based his figures on the Marshall
Rosenberg plan for manpower.
“We do not figure to lose more
than that number,” he said, "be
cause of stepped-up ROTC pro
grams, deferments for specialized
training in certain professions, a
steady enrollment of women, re
turning veterans, the too young
and the physically disabled.”
Costs Rise
The original budget for the
State System of Higher Educa
tion, which was prepared last May,
contained requests £pr added staff
and an 8 per cent salary increase.

Board Cancels
Tuesday Rally
The basketball rally original
ly planned for Tuesday morning
has been canceled, the rally
board announced Sunday.
The rally, planned to boost
spirit before Tuesday’s and
Wednesday’s Washington State
games, was canceled because
John Warren was skeptical of
the rally the day of a game.
A Monday rally was impracti
cable because it would involve
shortening the same classes
which were shortened for Fri
day’s assembly.
Board members said Warren
explained that a rally on the
day of the game would get play
ers so fired up that spirit would
slump through the day to a low
ebb by game time.
A rally is tentatively planned
for Feb. 22 before the Dads’ Day
weekend University of Wash
ington series.
