PU=TTS OF TI BOARD OF MIJS"S F Mr. Carpenter Aye Mr. Cox Aye Mr. Terrell Aye Br. Clay Aye Mr. Stoll Aye hr. Walker Aye Mr. Wathen Aye Motion carried. ,otT'f:' (a yQ b1 l) PrcfessoT: - There are some bills before the Legislature looking towards an additional income from the Commonwealth to the State University. I want to say here that I have kept my pledge given to you not to introduce any measures relating to additional appropriations for the University, unless by previous consultation, hence I have had no hand in the introduction of these measures, yet they are before the Legislature and I heard the Bills will pass giving us some additional annual income. If that shall take place, we will then have an enlargement of income to such an extent that we can do something we thought ought to be done and which we thought we could not do under present circumstances; one important measure is the increase in the salaries of our professors, professors in chief and assistant professors. They are all working for us for salaries much below the average salaries of institutions whose income is not so large as ours. We are in constant danger of losing some of them, some of our best men, men of experience, men of national reputation and who can demand salaries better than we are paying. Sala- ries that we have in the past deemed adequate for the maintaining of the household are not now equal to the draft made upon the home treasury, and from that point of view, I want to introduce a resolution here this morning for your consideration that the measure under which the Committee on salaries appear be enlarged so as to - February 3, 1910
