The bill carried the original budget
estimate of $1,275,000 stimiitted to
the finance committee by Governor
Bryan. A motion had been presented
to reduce the .ppropriation 30 per
cent and inter ns u compromise It was
suggested that a cut of 15 ,per cent
he mado. Finally 10 per cent was of
fered as n reduction. And when that
failed, Minority Leader Theo Oster
mnn suggested an amendment, which
would have favored expenditure of
any part of the $1,250,000 mainten
ance fund for continuance of the two
years' advanced work, which has been
recently added to the normal courses
for the purpose of conferring bachelor
degrees upon their graduate?. It
likewise, was rejected.
What are the facts?
This newspaper has no quarrel with
anv of the notmal schools. It reiter
ates the sentiments Expressed only
few days ago in pointing out the dis
crimination shown in handling the
normal school appropriation as con
trasted with the state university. It
believes the normals are engaged in
a very necessary and laudable work
of preparing the teachers, who arc
charged with the rcsponslhlity or ed
ucating the youth of Nebraska. The
normals are entitled to adequate
funds for their proper support hut
neither the normals nor the state uni
versity need expect the hard-pressed
taxpayers to lightly overlook the mat
ter of duplication in activities In dif
Duplication means watte and ex
A previous legislature had forced
the board of regents of the Univer
sity of Nebraska to establish a Teach
ers' college at tho university. It
came as a result of the Insistent de
mand of Nebraska educators for an
opportunity to pursue their profession
nl studies further without Journeying
to Columbia, or some other eastern
institution, offering advanced training
for teachers. As originally planned
the Teachers' college of the Hate uni
versity offered advanced training for
teachers. Its activities expanded be
yond the original conception.
Then the normnls became ambi
tious, and added two years to their
course of instruction, duplicating In
a large measure, the advanced work
which the Teachers' college was ex
pected to offer. Today Nebraska is
supporting five institutions, all striv
ing towards, the same goat, ,'pio, in
tense competition 'between them has
ncces'urily been expensive and waste
ful a drain upon tho taxpayers which
cannot be justified today in tho face
of the need for the most rigid econo

ut in the report of the committee
invcfli'vating the state universitv ir
its suggc-dion relative to that situa
ion. The investigating committee re
commended that the normals be pro
hibited from continuing tho advanced
training wh'eh they have neon giving
in recent years. The memuors sug
gested that the Teachers' college pro-
vile the last two years of wile. The

lege would be more economical Hum

The fight is over so rnr as the

Yet, .'ome legislature v. 11 tackle

ka's normals, and endeavored to co
operate their activities with tho Teach
ers' college of tho state university.
