"I sincerely" trust that the people of
Oregon will sustain tho action or tne

for the state university by an over

a member of the board of regents of
the University of Oregon yesterday. ."By
refusing to giv the university needed

a great opportunity Is given to the wo

"If sufficient funds ean be secured It
is Planned to have a free Information
department to answer Questions of the

tne university a university for all , the
people. And that is why the university
needs the popular , support -

may know what they may depend upon?
"This appropriation is an emergency
one and is absolutely necessary to ame
liorate ths crowded conditions at En.

ture looked after the future of the insti
tution after 1915 by providing a .1 mill
age tax for the university and .4 for ths

is one of the utmost irgency and neces
