Capital expenditures add to the value of property or prolong its life." In the 1976-77 R & A budget, the Regents were allocated $2.52 million while for 1977-79 $1.4425 million was allocated, according to Morton. "The money's tight and the situation's tough. It means we're going to have a bigger expenditure later, but it isn't as if the institutions are going to fall down," Morton said. "When it {the budget cut} finally came out in the official document from The Governor's Office, it was really to late to change the Governor's document. This year we're going to watch the budget carefully. Realis- tically, our only possibility is to make preparations for the next year. We have requested state funds in the amount of $3,112939" Morton said. "Every year in August, the colleges put together their budget requests to present tO the Board of Regents, higher education's governing body. The Board then complies them into one consolidated budget, which is sent to the Governor's Office. In January, the Governor submits the state budget to the Legislature. It ould be altered some at this point," Morton said. The Legislature then approves the budget and sends it back to the Board of Regents, who appropriates money to the colleges and universities. A BREAKDOWN of the Regents' alocatidfor R & A to state higher education*'or 1976-77 and 1977-78 shows Marshall University funds dropped from $45/,500 tt $270,O00and West Virginia University's funds went from $1,0315 million to $650,0OO. Bluefield State College, Concord College and Glenville State College all dropped from $90,000 to $50,000, The other cuts were Fairmont State College, from $164,600 to $75,000; Shepherd College, $97,000 to $50,000; West Virginia Institute of Technology, $111,100 to $55,000; and West Virginia State, $168,920 to $60,000, Other institutions of higher education that received cuts were West Virginia College of Graduate Studies, $5,150 to $3,000: Parkersburg short run-one year-deferred main- tenance would not be immediately noticeable In the long run, however, deferred maintenance would slowly but surely cause deterioration to millions of dollars worth of physical plants," explained Arthur P. Foley, Shepherd College Director of Finance and Business Affairs. "As a consequence {of the budget cut} we can only provide minimal maintenance. No alterations are scheduled for the academic year. We might survive this year, but this continued low expenditure in Repairs and Alterations will take its toll in the life of equipment and buildings," said Dr. Leonard C. Nelson, West Virginia Institute of Technology President. Dr. Robert B, Hayes, Marshall University President, said, "The cut in Repairs and Alterations... has affected us most severely in two specific areas. "The first of these deals with so-called 'quick-fix' methods we were in the process of implementing in terms of our energy conservation program. These included dropping ceilings to reduce volume or areas which had to be heated and/or cooled, additional insulation, and replacement of certain manually operated controls with automatic time clocks. "The second area affected was that in terms of our safety procedures. 'vhile no important safety hazards would be allowed to remain neglected, there are certain relatively minor infractions which we are unable to correct because of limited funding. Theseinclude replacement of certain doors which cdn{a lgs .pal. becuse of the change in' tlie fire code which reduced the allowable glass in a door,"' Hayes said. "We are quite concerned about the reduced funds since even day-to-day problems with repairs to furnaces, motors and other equipment are expensive, The college is only making routine repairs to ensure that equipment is kept running which must be repaired in order to operate," said Dr. A.G. Slonaker, Dean of the College at Potomac State College. "While you can survive for a year to two with no noticeable effects, it soon catches up with you and will soon destroy your physical plant if you can't On December 23. at the age of 62, Mrs. Eva C. Taylor will retire from the position of House Director at Pickens Hall. a position she has held since 1062, after serving in 1961 as Assistant House Director. "I've seen chanses," Mrs. Taylor recalls. "I have held my position longer than any other person before me," Mrs. Taylor served under three Glenville State College Presidents. She has worked under Dr. Harry Heflin, Dr. D. Banks Wilburn end Dr. William K. Simmons. Dr. Heflin was at Glenville when Mrs. Taylor came here. She recalls the early years when Pickens Hall was called Womens Hall before becoming a co-ed dormitory. She remembers the times when campus groups and organizations would have difficulty scheduling the Pioneer Center on campus for formal dances, adding that there would always be two formals each month along with mixes and slave auctions. Mrs. Taylor, born November 6, 1915. a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Walter Currey of Harrisville, will be succeeded by recent GSC graduate Diane Bach. According to Ms. Karen Thorpe. Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Ms. Bach as House Director will be implementing a new direction for college resident halls. "We will be getting away from the definition that a residence hall is just a place where students sleep and leave to go to classes," Ms. Thorpe said. She continued, "We will be experimenting in residential hall living-learning co,tars, a concept widely accepted throughout other colleges in the United States." Mrs. Taylor was married to Oliver D. Taylor in 1934 and has three children: Wendell B. Taylor of Paden City. Carol E. Dawson of New Martinsville, and Brenda J. Fleming of Parkersburg. They have eight grand- children.
