ARE ASKING WHERE
Appropriation For Increased Sal
aries Still on the Way.
Faculty KxpreJtlon One of DUuppoln t
m cut it iitl Keeret.
Not a few members of the Univer
sity faculty are much disappointed in
not receiving the expected raise in
salary which they thought would bo
coming to them when the last ses
sion of the legislature Increased the
University salary appropriation by
$50,000. The appropriation was for
the coming biennium and hence the
increase would mean a net increase
per year ot but $25,000 for the fac
ulty as a body owr the salaries for the
past year, but even this amount, soni"
of the members allege, has not been
apportioned to them The Increase
in the appropiiation was secured on
the plea that the University fatuity
has not ben receiving a wage that lb
consistent with their positions and
services and after the appropriation
has been secured it is claimed that the
money has not all been used for the
purpose for which it was appropriated,
but retained for other purposes.
One of the board of regents, when
seen by a reporter yesterday aftei
noon, would not give any statistics to
show just how much of the sum in
question had really been dealt out by
tire regents for "increases," but stated
that the money had all been provided
for for salaries and requested that any
of the complaining members report
their complaint to the regents.
A prominent member of the faculty
expressed his sentiments on the ques
tion as follows:
"There is a general feeling of dis
appointment among the faculty over
the failure of the regents to raise the
salaries to the limit promised. The
faculty had noted with pleasant anti
cipation that the legislature, on the
earnest recommendation of the Chan
cellor, had Increased the salary item.
In the University appropiiation, $30,000
for the next biennium. Hence the
heads of departments who had been
given title without a corresponding
salary expected to receive $2,000 or
$2,100. As a matter of fact an aver
age Increase of only $100 seems to
have been given and there are still
many heads of departments who are
not drawing salaries corresponding to
theirtitle. The deans received no In
crease at all. It appears that the
larger part of this $50,000 is being held
for the creation of new departments,
which seems manifestly unjust In view
of the patience of the older members
of the faculty. -"It Is surmised that the
finance committee of the board of re
gents Is responsible for this failure to
Increase the salaries to the limit prom
ised." Another man well up on the teach
ing force of the University stated that
wlH be had' no definite knowledge as
to the particular point In question he
could but say that he did not like the
"sweat shop" sort of a system that
seemed to be In vogue here.

bv the board, but It was finally decided
that the eils resulting from no charge
would be greater than those existing
at present, and the tventy-fie cent
charge will be made-this year as here
