six Nebraska Sweetheart finalists.

Regents Request $20817,838
For Next Two-Yea r Period
An increase of slightly less than
$4,000,000 was included in the
1953-1955 budget submitted by the
University Board of Regents.
The budget asks for a state tax
fund appropriation of $16,356,003
for the two year period.
The total budget requested, in
cluding state taxes, federal funds,
endowments -and estimated fees,
amounts to $20,817,83822 per
cent more than the University had
for its total operation this bien-nium.
The largest single cash income
is expected to come from the
tuition paid by students. This
figure has been estimated at

funds, $1,656,414: University
endowment, $66,000; vocational
education, $39,420, and Univer
sity Hospital, $300,000.
Chancellor R. G. Gustavson said
the budget requests are an honest
and conscientious effort to solve
the problems of rising costs and a
stronger support for several Uni
versity programs. The programs
that will require the most addi
tional aid are in the fields of
Medicine and Agriculture.
About 60 per cent of the in
crease, he said, will be needed
to provide cost-of-living raises
for University employees and
faculty and money to meet the
Increased costs of supplies.
The new budget would include
a 15 per cent increase for Univer
sity clerical employees and labor
force and an average of 8 per cent
for faculty members.
Gustavson said that supply
costs have risen to the point
where a 17 per cent increase is
demanded for University supplies.
The remaining 40 per cent of
the increase, the Chancellor
said, is accounted for in the in
creased expenses of operating

The budget request includes
items totaling $763,170 to aid in
