Will Ask for Only Balance ot Original Sum Ap
proved by 1921 Legislature
Chapel Hill, Dec. 28.—The Universi
ty cf North Carolina, in presenting its
ca&t to I he Budget Commission next
week, will base its requests for the
next two veer:; on the record of ac-
Ctii: ... k! n'ent with the money spet.'
dutin;: the last four.
• it •vi.' endeavor to show the com
mission that to date it has done
wl'at it e.-timated it could do with
appropriations totaling $3,240,00n
were granted in l'J2l and 192 a.
It "'ill then proceed to ask for the
(2,445,00*) now duo on the original
request of $5,580,000 that was ap
proved by the Legislature of 1921
for buildings and permanent improve
ments, and for $2,027,495 for main
tenance for the next two years ($979,-
920 in 1925-26 and $1,047,575 in 192f-
L .«)■
These requests are based on a care
fid survey of the anticipated grow'h
o*the institution and cover the
needs that are certain to arise dur
ing the scholastic years 1925-192*>
and 1920-27. The University will in
sist that these sums are not padded
by one penny and that unless the h
mounts are appropriated in full the
institution will of necessity be crip
pled in meeting its obligations to
the youth of the State, will be un
frble to c: re adequately for those
high school seniors now planning
to ihe University next fall. _____
The University's Case
The University's case, in brief, will
be stilted something like this: That
while SI7,tOO,(MK) of the total of
$20,000,000 allo'ed in the bond hill
of 1921 for buildings and permanent
improvements for charitable and ed
ucational institutions has been spen*
this amount has not been apportions
in proportion to the original requests
made. Certain institutions have re
ceived already more than their tots'
requests in 1921. These excess ap
propriations amount to $1,519,000. In
t-ddityon, institutions not represented
in the origial bill at all have received
$809,000. Oil the other hand, the
University, which had the
requested incorporated in the bond
bill, based on a carefully itimized
statement of needs that would nat
urally arise, has received $3,140,000
or only 56 per cent, of its original
The maintenance fund has gone to
provide for the natural increase in
teaching ad administrative forces in
cident to the steady growth of the
student body and to cover the costs
of the general upkeep of the institu
The building and improvement fund
• lias bee j spent largely in the construr
' tion of new dormitories and class
rooms and in the renovation of old
tuildings. Seven new dormitories hive
been buil', housing 120 students each
Three classroom buildings hav»
been construc'ed. These buildings
were erected at a cost of approximate
ly $150,000 each. They are on the
site of the old athletic field.
The Law budding fills one of 'he
longest felt needs on the campus. The
old Law build t:g was entirely in
adequate in space and equipment, i>nd
in the face of a constantly increas
ing enrolment expansion was impera
tive. The new Law building is one
of the most impressive structures on
the campus.
, Construction of the Chemistry
'Lidlding and Woman's buildii.g ait
HcVSinder way and both wil' i.e emu
lated so on The site ahwi for tl.c
Chemistry building is bclt't I Memorial
Hall, in the southwest corner of the
campiis and fi'.s into tin! scheme to
' build the University in the future to
that lecture room > building* will be
in the center of the campus and dor
mitories will ladiate towar'i them.
The Woman'; building erected at a
cost of SIOO,OOO, will be in the Col
onial stjlc of architecture and three
stories ft height. It will be not only
a dormitory but a social center tor
th«yvomen students as well. The first
floor will bo given over to reception
rooms together with a dining room
and kitchen. The site is that formerl?
occupied by •; the old Ebrsn Alexande
house which has been torn down to
make way for the new building. The
Woman's building will also fill a long
felt need The 97 University co-rids
are now livinsr in cramped quarter?
in the Russel Inn and Robinson house,
bc|£h on Pittsboro street.
A much needed indoor athletic
building has been erected at the south
ernmost end of ths campus. The cost
of erection together with adjoining
grounds was SIOO,OOO. It is of steel
construction and 810 by 110 feet. It
provides space for eight basketball
courts and indoor tennis and ba^*
■ » ""/ ''
ball courts and seats 4,ooo*spectators.
It has been, and will be, necessary
fcr the University to carry on other
forms of construction than those in
volved in the actual erection of new
buildings. For instance, it has been
necessary to build a railroad a mile
••nil a quarter in length from Carr
boro o the campus, at a total cost of
$75,000 for the road and right of way
but by so doing it saves thousands
of dollars, every year. It has built
loads, laid sewers, graded new areas
of campus and enlarged its power
plant, laundry, water supply and so
on. In short the whole physical plan*
oi' the University is beiiiK renil'do an I
brought up to date, with new build
ings added.
Basis of Requests
The University is bar,ing its re
quests for increased appropriations
oi. two general facts: First, at th"
present 'ate of enrolment the Uni
versity will be giving instruction to
more than 8,000 students, resident
and non-resident, during the twelve
month period preceding July 1, 1927,
which is the last yenr of the bienniun
period for which new appropriatej is
have been requested. These figures
j»re based on the number of students
who will be enrolled provideded .he
needed appropriations are granted
The second main point is that *.he
University is more than a college,
TTfougTT it does include the college
Beginning as a single college, with
one course of study for all, the Uni
versity has, during its 131 years of
set vie®, developed into twelve .-ol
leges and schools, each with its own
;>urpo.-.t, its own courses of study ami
teaching force, all enjoying the larg
ei advantages made possible by com
bining resources to secure teach *rs
of quality, special lecturers, facili
ties for investigation and publica
tion, library resources, carefully su
pervised work for student welfare
end so on.
The point that the University is
more than a college is best illustrated
by the fact tha more than half of its
students are enrolled in other school
han the college of arts, that is, it
professional and graduate school.-.
The enrollment includes many stu
litnts from otlier colleges in thi-
Jifiite and ether states who have com
pleted their undergraduate work else
w here and come to the University
f'jr'.her training.
In arriving at a proper understand
ing of the institution's needs, th
' University' character of the wo'k
inuf.t be kept in mind throughout. The
Library, for instance, is called on to
lender services of many more kinds
than a college library; it mun ma>n
t:in specialized collections of booVs
for specialized work. In the same
way, the direct service to the State
rendered ty the University through
its Extension Division must assume
tach year larger proprotiens if it ■?
tc keep pace in scope and varie' y
with the demands made upon it. This
year the Extension .Division, through
i rganizeo classes and correspondent''
courses, rave instruction to 2,200
persons in the State outside of Chapel
Hill. The summer session has become
really a fourth University term, wi'h
60 p*r cent, of its students doing
v.-ork for college or graduate cradi".
The principal itc-ms covered bv lr
request for $2,445,000 for new build
ings and permanent improvements
ure new dormitories, the renova'i in
of old buildings (South, New East.
New West, Pharmacy, Mary Ann
Smith. Old Chemistry building ind
Alumni building), a new Gymnasium,
u Geo!jgy laboratory, the centra! unit
of a new Library, a new classroom
building, a wing for Phillips Halli re
pairs on Memorial Hall, service ex
tensions in heat, light, water, power
f lant and laundry, furniture and de
partmental equipmet, expenditures
for grading roads, and other inciden
A large part of the appropriation
from the 1923 Legislature has gone
into new dormitories, "but the Uni
versity is still crowded for lack of
rooms. The plans cal.l for the con
version of one present dormitory, the
South building, to the uses of the
administrative offices,"by which space
for about 100 men will be lost.
The teaching space is equally full.
The University has M available rooms
for classes. It operates a schedule, be
ginning at 8:30 in the morning *nd
running through the day with out in
termission until 5 p. m.
The i'ems on the University's re
quest constitute a balanced program,
which will make possible a harmoni
ous, not a one-sided, development of
the University's plant to care for 8,-
000 student*.
