Just think! dur great university Is
noarcr to Iowa, Kansas and Missouri
than It Is to two-thirds of the people
of our Btate. Those two-thirds pay
their sharo for the maintenance ot the
Institution and in addition must pay
hoavy traveling expenses. The boy
of modorato moans who attends the
Institution and lives in the west part
of tho state cannot alford the 800
mile round trip home during tlio se
mester or other vacations. As Sena
tor Borah says, "lets have an open
sosBion," and our great educational
Institution will ho built nl a point
wh?ro the boys and girls of Nebras
ka can easily reach It.
