which is gathering about higher
education in America.
"They have a right to know
that standards here, as elsewhere,
could deteriorate for want of funds.
They have a right to know that
in education, as in other endeavors,
there is a point of saturation . . .
a point at which more students
cannot be properly served, more
research cannot be properly under
taken, and more services properly
added without an upward adjust
ment in revenue."
Hardin said: "The fact that our
needs are increasing at a time
when there is general concern
within the ranks of agriculture
contributes to the difficulty."
He added that he expected the
question of University financial
support to be "determined in an
intelligent and logical manner."
Chancellor Hardin placed "the
growing problem of faculty
salaries" at the head of the list of
problems facing the University
"and it is a concern which is not
peculiar to our institution."
Earlier, Chancellor Hardin pre
sented certificates of appreciation
for 25 years of service to the fol

their beloved little candidate, Pogo,
was the overwhelming choice of
the University campus.
Perhaps the only thing which
worried these Pogo Chairmen, who
had come to represent their re
spective fraternities and sororities,
was which organization would ob
tain the most Possum points and
receive the coveted prizes.
Unofficial returns yesterday,
with some 386 questionnaires
turned in, shows Phi Beta Phi sor
ority out in front in the women's
division with 102 Possum Points.
Alpha Omicron Pis in second
place with 69 Possum Points.
Beta Theta Pi is leading the
men's division with 60 points, while
Sigma Chi is close behind with 42.
Many of the organizations had
not turned their completed ques

were made, however. Campaign of
