Eugene Causes But .4
of Tax Jump.
Portland, Oregon. Higher education
In the state of Oregon has caused but
1.7 per cent of the tax increase in the
state since 1220, and the University cf
Oregon itself has caused but .4 percent
lncreate, it has been revealed here,
following a statistical study made by
experts in on the request of alumni
and f;li::.:-. cf Institutions. Those
malting the survey found that roads
and highways lu:d occasioned the heav
iest Increase, being responsible for
67.7. The invest V.crs pointed out
that even thou;!; this road program
had cost' considerable money, the stale
has reaped gre'nc. beiicHt from it.
Similar benefit to the stale would
accrue from investins more in l.igi.-tr
education, it is declared by many. In
creasing enrollment in institutions :A
higher learning, without corrccj-oucl-lng
increase in revenue has wcr!;ed a
hardship on them, and unless this la
corrected it is Hhely that, many boys
and eirls of Oregon will be denied ed:t
cational training that a progressive
itate should five them.
