HIGHER EDUCATION IN OREGON
These are outstanding facts in its present day of crisis:
1. .The Agricultural College, State University, and State Nor-.
mal School have 150 per cent more students than in 1913, but
less than FOUR per cent more income. 2. :Th'e Svorldwide
''rise" in costs has reduced tremendously the buying power of
even, that income. J3. , There is no sign of a let-up in the in
crease of students. Jit is well that there should not be, for
the best educated state is the best producer, the most stable,
and the best to live in.) 4. Attendance has increased ten times
as fast as classroom and laboratory space. 5. All three insti
tutions have, been conducted with utmost economy. Their cost
per student jer jrear and their building investment per student
are far below the general average. 6. They are fast losing
their faculty specialists who canriot make even a bare living
while training the boys and girls of Oregon. 7.. Their classes
are overloaded., their floor space overcrowded, their scientific
' instruments and apparatus low. 8. They can no longer go on
with an adequate program of teaching unless, adequate support
