The University, of "Oregon has al
ways been forced, under a system
prevailjng shie1 1873, to, ask each
legislature for funds. with which to
operate during another two years.
TJlie Oregon Agsicultural College
has bean compelled to do tbea same.
These, maintenance bills have fr
queptly become the storm center 01
the political struggles whhiu the
legislature. The University aijd
the Agricultural College, therefor
have constantly been accused of en
gaging in politics'and of the unaca-
deiflic practice of political atrading;'
and their dignity and usetulness
have been correspondingly impaired.

mill on eacji state lev wasset aside
for the University and a slightly
larger fraction of a mill for tlfe Agri

exacted to expand. The legisla
