Concrete evidence that Oregon's
higher educational institutions are
being conducted on a new basis of
economy, with resultant savings to
the taxpayers, was set out in a re
port of Dr W. J. Kerr, received at
the executive department Satur
day, comparing the present bien
nlum expenditures with those of
the two years immediately preced
ing the establishment of the state
board of higher education curtail
ment program. '
The report was requested by
Governor Meier lc a ietter sent to
Dr.' Kerr a week ago.
The report shows that the total
expenditures for all state institu
tions of higher learning for the
years 1929 and 1930 were $9,468,
924, or an average of $4,734,462
for each year of the biennium. The
expenditures for the entire state
system of higher education for the
year 1931 and 1932, the first year
during which the state board of
higher education operated the in
stitutions on its own initiative,
were $3,834,872. This is a saving
of $899,690 for the year.
Saving Is $1,072,800
The estimated expenditures bud
geted for the year 1932-33 for the
entire system of higher education
aggregate $3,488,154. This is a
reduction of $1,246,208, as com
pared with the average yearly ex
penditures for the biennium 1929
1930. "Thus th average reductions
for the past two years amount to
more than a million dollars, or
$1,072,899, as compared with the
average expenditures for each
year of the 1929-1930 biennium,"
the report continued.
Commenting briefly on his plans
as chancellor, Dr. Kerr continued:
"It is my purpose, first, to elim
inate to the minimum all duplica
tion of work, and, second, to ef
fect such organization as may be
necessary to insure throughout
the entire system the lowest pos
sible cost consistent with efficien
cy. To accomplish these ends a
careful study will be made of con
ditions throughout all of the in
stitutions, with a view of elimin
ating waste of whatever kind, re
ducing the size of the faculties to
the extent necessary as an assur
ance that each person will carry a
full load, removing all causes of
friction? and. controversy, and in
place thereof developing the spirit
of harmony and cooperation.
No New Findi Asked
"I have already recommended
to the board, and the recommenda
tion was formally approved at the
meeting October 17, that no re
quest be made from the next leg
islature for funds to supplement
any lack of income.
Again referring to the financial
status, Dr.. Kerr said:
"Ob the basis of bndget author
izations for the present , fiscal
year, July 1. 1932, to June 30,
1933, tne expenditures for the
next biennium will exceed the esti
mated income by $670,000. for the
two years, or an average of $335.
000 for each year of the biennium.
This Is doe to the decreased tax
value of state property, with a
corresponding decrease in mlllage

and to the decrease in student fees
resulting from reduced enrollment
