ASUN Liaison, Research Study
Reveals Taxed Facilities, Faculty
Rapid enrollment in
creases have strained the
limits of both faculty and
facilities, according to a
study by the ASUN Legis
lative Laison and Research
The survey states that It
"was not meant to be com
prehensive," but attempts
to "point out some of the
problems caused by ex
panding enrollments and
relatively shrinking b u d g
ets in departments which
are by no means unique."
University enrollment has
grown from 8,711 in 1960 to
17,051 this year.
The committee contacted
political science, history,
economics and agronomy
and the College of Engi
neering and Architecture.
Out Of Market
Dr. Dudley Bailey, chair
man of the English depart
ment, said that, "If the
salary scale gets up, we
are hopeful of adding to the
staff," but that last year
the department found itself
"1,000 dollars out of the
market" in recruiting.
Bailey said that in his
department upperclass en

Bailey told the com
mittee, "We need to add

He said that the key to
this addition was on the ap

budget requests.
Hold The Line
Chairman of the political
science department Carl J.
Schneider said that it has
been difficult to "hold the
line" of enrollment of 100
and 200-level courses.
The addition of more
sections means the addi
tion of staff members or
the subtraction of another
course, Schneider said. He
added that he has been try
ing to fill two faculty spots
for two years and an addi
tional opening has been

He added that instructors
are used at the 100 level at
the expense of the 200 level
and graduate courses.
Schneider also said that

Schneider said that his
budget requests included
areas "we have to get into
if we are going to be a
respectable department and
in order not to short-change
our students."
National Shortage
Dr. J. A. Rawley, chair
man of the history depart
ment, said that there was a
current national shortage of
qualified history teachers. .
He told committee mem
bers that the department
lost four top instructors last
year and is not offering
courses now in Japanese,
history, Renaissance history
and United States diplomat
ic history.
Rawley entered the prob

Dr. Wallace Peterson,
head of the department,
stated that the department
now depends on graduate
assistants for much of the
faculty chores.
Peterson said that enroll

Enrollment Rise
The number of student
credit hours in the depart
ment of agronomy has ris
en from 3.473 in 1964-65 to
a projected minimum of
5,000 for 1968-69.
Dr. Francis Hasklns, de
partment chairman, said
that a few lab instructors
but no professors have been
added since 1964-65.
Classroom space is so
acute, Dr. Haskins report
ed, that soon only the de
partment auditorium can
accomodate certain classes.
He said that limits had to
be set on upperclass courses
this year and that the staff
is spending more time on
teaching than in research.
Additional projects are on

Schneider said that the

over five years.

its "continuing effort for
