Governor Urges Economy
On Higher School Board
Without presuming to be an au
thority on educational problems.
Gov. Julius L. Meier addressed
the state board of higher educa
tion Monday from the standpoint
of a business man. Hiss letter was
read to the board by Miss Walton,
the governor'i secretary. Pertin
ent extracts from his letter follow:
"The survey shows that both
the per capita expenditures for
operation and maintenance and
the outlay for fixed eapital In .Ore
gon are very high as compared
with other states. For the former
we pay SX.12 per capital as com
pared with an average of $1.1 S
for all the states. In capital out
lay we invest $13.24 per capita as
compared with an ; average of
$C.31 for the country as a whole,
"If these figures are correct, it
is apparent that substantial sav
ings can be affected without re
ducing our publicly supported edu
cational Institutions to a level of
which we need be ashamed. A re
duction of $1 per capital for op
eration and maintenance would
still leave us well above the av
erage for the nation and would, at
the same time, help materially in
reducing the deficit in sight. :

Avers Charges
Are Unfounded
ALB AX Y. N. Y., April 20
(AP) Mayor James J. Walker
of New York told Governor Roos
evelt today In a 15,000-word
statement that charges . against
him were "unwarranted and false
accusations recklessly made."
"I declare that I have" ade
quately and consistently done my
full duty 'as mayor of the city of
New York," the- mayor's state
ment said, "and I ask that these
charges be dismissed."
large. Included in our enrollment
are 1615 students from outside
of the state of Oregon. The sur
vey suggests that mny of these
may have come on account of the
lower standards maintained in
Oregon institutions. The tuition
fees charged do not begin to cover
the cost of educating this large
number of out-of-state students.
In fact, at the rate of $150 per
year charged by the college for
non-resident tuition, the state
loses $121.91 per year on each
out-of-state student, or a' total of
$204,134.87 per year. r Here is a
clue to a means if saving money
for Oregon without in any way
impairing the efficiency or lower
ing the standards of our educa
tional institutions.
"The survey accounts for our
excessive attendance by costly and
Intensive student recruiting meth

was before the legislature, a rep
resentative of one of the institu

later another representative of

Meeting j
Five Branches With
President Over
All Urged
A single administration for tl
university at Eugene and the stats
college at Corrallls looms in the
not distant future. Just before
adjournment j of the state board
of higher education following an
all day meeting in Salem, Alfred'
Burch of Medford, a member of
the board mored that "as soon as
possible" the two institutions be
put under one-head. Mrs. Corne
lia Marvin Pierce seconded the
motion.
C. C. Colt of Portland interpos
ed the "objection that while such
action may eventually be taken,
the board should not be prodded
Into precipitate action, and urged
that the matter go over at pres
ent. Other members voiced' the
sentiment that while they antici
pated some such solution, decittion
should not be made before the
next meeting of the board which
will be held in Portland on April
29. The matter was accordingly
tabled until that time.
The meeting of the board took
place In Salem instead of Port
land, on the invitation of the gov
ernor. The entire day was con
sumed with the board acting
chiefly as listeners. Gov. Meier
addressed the board at the morn
ing session, which was held in his
offices. Then executives of the
normal schools were heard. Aftef
them Presidents Hall of the uni
verslt and Kerr of . the -state col
lege presented their briefs analyt
ing the recommendations of ths
survey commission as they applied
to their Institutions. ,
Budget Matters Deferred
The matter of reductions in the
budget which had been referred
to the presidents received scant
attention, each president stating
that he bas prepared to make
such cuts' as the board would re
quire.' The normal school presi
dents said they would take their
pro rata share of the $500,060
item vetoed by the governor, and
further would make reductions if
the remainder of the legislative
appropriations now under threat
of referendum were denied them '
At the meeting next week the in ,
dividual presidents will present
skeleton budgets showing allot
ments of funds under the reduced
allowances.
'Nothing was said on the sub
ject of physical consolidation ol
the two plants at Eugene and
Corvallls; but considerable " was
said on the subject of administra
tive unification. Dr. Hall discuss
ed the subject at length,' present
ing a monograph in which he re
commened that a single University
of Oregon be created with
branches In the five places now
having institutions: Eugene, Cor
vallls, Monmouth, Ashland and
LaGrande. This should be under
a single president, according t
the California plan, rather than
the Montana plan with a chancel
lor over all and Individual heads
for the separate schools. Dr. Kerr
In his brief touched on the sub
ject of consolidation, intimating
that a plan of unified administra
tion of the university and state
college might be worked out suc
cessfully, j
Hall Presents Case
. Pres. Hall presented his case to
the board in the form of eleven
briefs, touching on different i por
tions of tbe survey report. The
university position as he stated it
is as follows: :
1. Accept plan of separation of
curriculum into ' lower division
and higher work, such being now
tbe program at the university.
