The president said that all points

sections were devoted to commendation of certain procedures all already in effect.
Each topic is being considered individually and is passed for adoption
or rejected because of triviality,

Two Points Stressed
Two points of the report he stressed particularly, adding that he hoped
the report would Impress upon the
people the gravity of the situation.
They were the shortage in educators
and the need of an even more extensive building program. Both problems
could be solved by larger state appropriations, he asserted.
"We will require ten million dollars
for buildings and an increase in the
annual appropriation of approximately a million and ohe half per
year," the president announced.
The report read in part: "At first
it was thought that the essential
buildings could be constructed for
$8,000,000. This would be sufficient
to construct a number of the most
essential buildings, but it would not
be adequate at present costs of
materials and labor, to supply all of
the desirable additional facilities
and replacement of several old build
