JBA BUILDING PASSES
SALEM LOWER HOUSE
A sexen-mlllion-dcfllar business administration building lor the Cni
Verstty of Oregon was approved by a vote of l.r> to 13 by the house of
the state legislature Tuesday afternoon at Salem.
The provision for the business administration building was ineluded
In a building program hill which Includes a teaching hospital at the
U niversity of Oregon medical school, an addition to the home eeono
mies hiiiiding at Oregon State- College, and funds to be- spent generally
on state Institution buildings.
The tote on the hill came as the legislature attempted to end Its
J 14-duy-old session by tonight.
I he elght-rneinl>er tax conference committee planned to meet In an
attempt to adjust tax differences between the house and the- senate.
These- differences arc- the chief obstacle to adjournment tonight.
\ proposed udditlon to the journalism school was not included in
the new tax hill. The- building program had originally called for a new
building on the site- of the present McClure Hall, and extensive re
novation of the old journalism building.
Most prominent opponent of the building program was Kepresenta
tlx«* Cllc-s L. French. Metro, who argued that the new buildings were
beyond the state's present means.
French ventured the opinion that the state voters would defeat the
new cigarette tax by referendum. The tax was to be one means of
financing the buildings. The defeat of the tax would, French stated,
leave a deficit of twelve million dollars during the- coming two years.
