UNIVERSITY TO BASE lib BIENNIAL
REQUEST ON ACCOMPLISHMENTS
OF THE LAST FOUR YEARS
Will Ask for Only Balance ot Original Sum Ap
proved by 1921 Legislature
Chapel Hill, Dec. 28 —The Universi
ty rf North Carolina, in presenting its
ca.A. to 'he Budget Commission next
week, vvil! base its requests for the
nest f*' veers on the record of ar
toi: si n*nt with the money spet.
*" duii*U: the last four.

mi«sio;. that to date it has don* 1
what it c.-timated it could do with
appropriation* totaling $3,24i>,00»>
were granted in l'J2l ami l'.ti'i
It "-ill then proceed to ask for the
J2,445,1n0w duo on the origin;* 1
request of SS,SBC),(XH» 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 19*25-26 ar.d J 1,047,575 in 192f
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 >ear> 1925-192' i
and 1920-27. The University will irr
sist that these sum* are not padded
by one penny and that unless the i
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
l-blc* to ere adequately for those
high school seniors now plant,inn

The University's case, in brief, will
be stated something like this: That
>*hile sl7,"oO,imK) of the total of
allo'ed in the bond bill
of 1921 for buildings and permanent
improvements for charitable ami ed
ucational institutions has been spen*
this amount has not been apportions
in proportion to the original reques*s
made Certain institutions have re
ctived alrvadv more than their tota'
reque.-t.- in 1921. These excess ap
propriations amount to $1,519,000. In
i-dditym. institutions not represented
in the orivial bill a! all have received
$809,000 On the other hand, the
University, which had the $5,5ft0,000
requested incorporated in the bond
bill, based on a carefully itimixed
sta'ement of needs that would nat
urally arise, has received $3,140,000
or onfy 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 jrrowth of the
student body and to cover the costs
cf the ireneral upkeep of the institu
The building and improvement fund
lias be* | spent largely in the construe
tion of new' dormitories and ckss
rooms and in the renovation of old
buildings. Sever new dormitories hive
been buil*. housing 120 students each
Three classroom buildings hav?
been construc , ed. These buildings
were erected a* a cost of approximate-1
ly $150,000 each They are on the
site of the old athletic field
The taw budding fills on-* of 'he
lonjrest felt nerds on the campus. The
eld Law buildir.g was entirely in
adequate in space and equipment, :*nd
in the face of a constantly increas
ing enrolment expansion was impera

of the most impressive structures on

Chemistry building is bch ■■ I Memorial

campu.- and fi.s into tint scheme tc
build the Cniversity in the future *o
that leciure room ,buiHinj.' will be
in the center of the campus an>i dor
mitories will ladiate towar*. them.
The Woman' - building erected at a
cost of SIOO,OOO. will be in the Col
oniai stjjc of architecture ami three
stones if! height. It will be not only
a dormitory but a social center for
thotwomen students as well. The first
floor will be given over to reception
rooms together with a dining room
and kitchen. The site «s that former!?
occupied by the old Ebon Alexande
homse 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-flds
are now l ivine in cramped quarter*

A much nreded indoor athletic
buildin* ; been erected at the south
ernmost end of the campus The ety?

grounds was SIOO/100. It is of steel
construction and 310 by 110 feet. It
provides space for eight basketball
courts and indoor tennis and ha^fc
ball courts and seats 4,otto*spectators.
• It has been, ami will be, necessary
fcr the I niversity to carry on other

buildings. For instance, it has beer,
necessary to build a railroad a mile

• bt.ro o tiie campus, at a total cost of
i *75,000 tor the roai and right of way
i but by so doing it saves thousand
. of dollars every year. It has buil'
. toads, 'aid sewers, graded new area.-

on. In short the whole physical plan'

brought up to date, with new build
Basis of Requests
The University is having its re
, i,ue>t.~ for Increased appropri i' ion
oi. twi> vt'ieral facts: First, at th"
, ,"»te of enrolment t the I ni
versity w.ll be giving instruction to
; more thai, s.OOO students, resident
ami non-resident, during the twelve
i month period preceding July 1, 192",
which is toe last year of the bieiiniur-i
periol 'for which new appropriatij is
have bera requests!. These figure
( are based on the number of students
who will be enrolled providelel he
neede«l appropriations are it-ranted
The second main point is that the
I riw. ily is more than a college, a!
though it doe« include the college.
Beginning as a single college, with,
one course of study for all, the Uni
verr-ily has. during its 131 years of
strvic", developed into twelve :o!-
leges and schools, each with its own
• hi rpost. t own courses of study and
teaching force, all enjoying the targ
et advantages made possible bv com
bining re.-ources to secure teach. »rs
of quality, special lecturers, facili
ties for investigation and publica
tion, library re.-ources, carefully su
pervised work for student welfare
end so on.
The point that the University i>
' more than a college is best illustrated
i bv the fact lha more than half of its
students are enrolled in other school
ban the college of arts, that is, it
|.r.>fes,-ional and graduate school.-.
i The enrollment include.- many stu
mn;; from other colleges in thi
:;at" a»d ether Stat-'* who have com
plete«l their undergraduate work ele
slid come to the University '■
f-• her training.
In arriving at a proper understand
ing of the institution's needs, '). •
1 "niversity character of the wo't
tnu t b-> kept in mind thfouchout: Thr
Library, for instance, is called on to
lender services of itu'ny more kind
than a college library: it mu: i main
tin specialised collections of booV -
for specialized work In the
way, the direct service to the Sta'e
;«nd»red ly the University thiougb
its Extension Division must assume
each year larger proprotiens if it •-
tc keep pace in scope and varie" •
with the demands made upon it. This
\ ear the Extension Division, through
• rgnnized classes and cor«es;ioiident*
courNes, rave instruction to
f erson- in *he State outside of Chapel
Hill. The summer session has becom
really a fourth University term, wi'h
