Man Causes 70 Per
Cent of Forest Fires
ui an me iorest nres tnat occur
in Oregon and Washington, 70 per

man-made causes." said Geo. IJ. Cecil,
district forester, today.
"In spite of educational efforts of
the federal foresters, the State for
esters, forest chools and fire protec
tive associations, the annual fire toll
in these two states is enormous, and
the rgerettable part is that this loss
is unnecessary. It is burning up
money, for the forests of the North
west are growing in value each day,"
remarked Mr. Cecil,
Last year was an unusually favor

of all forest fires in Oregon were
caused by smokers alone. There were
1422 fires in Oregon in 1923, a very

worthy movement, well deserving of the support of every
nan and woman who believe in the University of Ore
gon and who favors giving the rising generation of boys
and girls their maximum chance in the world through the
equipment of higher education.
The University of Oregon has in recent years been
faced with a serious problem. Its attendance has been
growing faster than have its facilities or its maintenance
funds. In 1913-14 theri wrro 732 qriirlpnro mnmUnA T.
c!ay there are 2,389. For this year the total will reach
2500. Within the ten-year period just past the enroll
ment in Oregon's high schools has almost trebled. Ten
times as many high school graduates are going to higher
institutions of learning as were going ten years ago. On
the basis of all this it may be confidently predicted that at
tendance at the University of Oregon will double again
within the next five years.

. s-v me university or wregon received rrom the
state under the millage bills $806,497, In 1 924 it will re
ceive $848,820. Thus the income from the state in four
years has increased 5 per cent. Attendance in that four
years has increased 39 per cent, eight times as fast. Ob
viously a 5 per cent increase in income will not take care
of a 39 per cent increase in attendance. The University
must increase its income. Oregon is tax-burdened al
ready, and the University does not desire to go to the tax
payers for a larger millage tax. Hence the gift campaign.
Through this gift campaign the University hopes to
raise $5,000,000 in five years. The money will be ex
pended for new buildings and increased facilities. The
University alumni have undertaken to raise $1,000,000
for three principal buildings. The current student body
will finance another building, the Student-Union. Citi
zens of Eugene have undertaken to raise $500,000 for a
Universily auditorium. Thus a very substantial begin
ning has been made. A little later the intensive campa ;n
is to ramify. The whole public will be asked to partici
pate. It is a worthy cause.
