Brown, State Representative,
Defends Budget Cut Proposal

The following article, which appeared
in the Ingham County News, was writ-
ten by Vernon J. Brown, Republican
State Representative. It should not be
construed as reflecting the opinion of
The Daily. Because of a limited space,
the article is reprinted only in part.
"A great deal of confusion in the
public mind has arisen as the result
of a controversy which has raged
about legislative halls during recent
weeks concerning the cut in the mill
tax appropriation for the University
of Michigan. Much of this confusion
has resulted directly from gross mis-
representations of facts sent to
alumni of the University by those in
charge at Ann Arbor. A committee
of 100, selected by some unknown
group of former graduates now in
prominent positions in the business
and professional life of the State,
sent out an SOS to all known for-
mer students now residents of Michi-
gan. The appeal contained in the
circular was pathetic. The persons
to whom these appeals were sent
were told what to write, how to write

it, and when to write.
"The result was a veritable shower
of letters to members of the Legisla-
ture as well as a shower of editorials
appearing in many of the newspapers
of the State. Students also were told
to write home to parents asking them
to intercede to "save our dear old
Michigan from destruction."
Cut Will Not Harm
"Now first let it be discovered from
the facts whether or not the Uni-
versity of Michigan, as one nearby
editor puts it,, will have "mediocrity"
forced upon it. Let it be discovered
whether or not, the cultural atmos-
*phere of the University campus is be-
ing threatened, as the same editor
"The pay roll of the University in a
single year, the last fiscal year if you
please, amounted in round numbers
to $4,500,000. The cut imposed by the
house appropriation amounts in
round figures to $1,500,000. The $1,-

should see Miss Grace, in the office of the College, not later than noon

day, Room 306, Union. Members please be present. No luncheon this week.

500,000 is exactly one-third the total'
pay roll for the year. The entire cut
then can be absorbed with a decrease
of one-third in the salary schedule
alone. A very small number of as-
sistant professors and miscellaneous
employees are found on the pay roll
at salaries below $2,000. Even with a
flat cut of one-third from top to bot-
tom, it is contended the salaries paid
at Ann Arbor will all yet remain well
above the pauper class. When it is
remembered that more than a hun-
dred administrators, deans and pro-
fessors are receiving yearly salaries
ranging between $5,000 and $16,200
and that more than 200 professors
enjoy salaries between $3,000 and $5,-
000 and with hundreds just below
$3,000, the cry of destruction lacks
the ring of sincerity. Stenographers
and clerks, gardeners and caretakers,
bookkeepers and office assistants at
Ann Arbor range in salary along with
presidents of some very fine colleges.
"Two methods of reducing the pay
roll are open to University authori-
ties. More than one-halt the mem-
bers of the teaching faculty at Ann
Arbor do less than 10 hours a week
in the classrooms. A surprisingly
large number of high paid savants
are not expected to do any teaching
at all. There is not a single salary
found in the higher levels which can-
not stand drastic reduction and there
are very few professors who cannot
take on a load greater than that car-
ried at present. If these University
professors are as high grade as they
are pictured, they will remain at re-
duced salaries at the same time in-
creasing their individual teaching
loads. This will permit reducing the
number of professors and assistants.
While such an arrangement might
seriously interfere with profitable
outside work carried on by some, no
serious results could reasonably be
expected to follow. Surgeons receive
generous fees from patients, econo-
mists work for corporations and gov-
ernmental units, while the lecture
platform is yet another source of
easy side money for the more promi-
nent. Textbook writers are also very
Cultural Suicide Bosh
"The most overplayed argument of
all is that Michigan has been so
proud of its great University for a
moment any recession from its for-
mer high standards is cultural sui-
cide. University heads admit and
others boast that the University of
Michigan stands at the very head of
all tax-supported universities in
America. Harvard, Yale, Columbia
and perhaps one other is given credit
for outranking Michigan. All these
institutions are richly endowed and
not supported by taxpayers. Michi-
gan taxpayers alone of all the states
in the union have attempted to com-
pete with millionaire gifts from the
wealthy in maintaining its university.
"Michigan is not the richest state
in the union. Michigan was proud to
support its University when it could
afford to do so but it is no longer
in a position to furnish the funds as
in former days. The day appears to
have dawned when consideration for
the taxpayer must be heard.
"Sensible pruning of the salary
s c h e d u1 e, elimination of minor
courses of instruction, more hours of
teaching per week for those who re-
main on the staff, elimination of be-
whiskered barnacles from profes-
sorial berths - and a decent fee
charged foreign and out-of-state
students, will keep the University on
a high plane of instruction and lift
a terrible load from the backs of the
taxpayers of Michigan.
