"Considerable progress has been made since the war, but we
have a long way to go if we are going to keep Michigan in the
forefront of the educational systems of the nation."
That was University Vice-President Marvin L. Niehuss' comment
last night on results of a just-published survey on support given
higher education in state schools.
* * * *
THE SURVEY, conducted by Assistant Dean of Faculties Robert
L. Williams, shows that while the State Legislature gave the Univer-
sity its biggest appropriation in history last year, state supported
universities in 20 other states were making still greater gains.
Including all of the 20 state universities for which data were
available, the survey is based on research by the University during
the last half dozen years.
Niehuss yesterday pointed out that price level rises and increas-
ing complexity of education have made education increasingly expen-
sive throughout the nation.
"The Legislature has recognized the University's needs and made
budget increases in the past six or seven years," Niehuss said.
"But there must be further increases in appropriations to State
supported schools if Michigan is to maintain its high position among
the states in the field of education," he added.

WILLIAMS' SURVEY found 20 other state universities averaged
15 per cent budget hikes from 1952 to 1953. Meanwhile the Univer-
sity got only an 11 percent increase.
On a per student basis, the 20 state universities averaged 11
percent increases to the University's eight percent.
The survey, which appears in the March issue of the Michigan
Education Journal, tells the story of the University's fall from its
nationally top financial position in 1929.
In 1939, while the 20 other state universities were again getting
just as high appropriations as they had before the crash, the Uni-
versity was still nine per cent short of regaining appropriation cuts
made during the depression.
Since 1939, the 20 other state universities showed appropria-
tion increases averaging 34 per cent more than the University's
"Today's college student in the State of Michigan is handicapped
by the level of support granted to the colleges since 1929," Williams
"Laboratories need restoring, libraries need expansion, faculties
should be increased in size and other improvements are needed." I
Williams added that few appropriations for capital outlay were
made in Michigan during the 17 years from 1928 to 1945.
"The need accumulated for new buldings has not yet been met,
although the State has made appropriations since 1945 for capital
development and improvement," he said.
