Profossor Taylor Advises the Exten
sion of Trade with Foreign
Nations Discusses
Professor Taylor resumed his tulk
yesterday at convocation on re
ciprocity as treated In the president's
Flo quoted the argument thai a
country must buy as much as It sells;
if it buvs from - ono country more
than it sells to that country, it must
soil so much tho moro to other coun
tries, in order that there may bo a
final balancing or trade. This would
be ail right, he Raid, if the conditions
which the argument prosupposcs
were truo. The argument takes tho
ground that trade conditions have
settled to a permanent state. It sup
noBos that the present state of
affairs is advantageous and that any
disturbance in the course of trade is
disadvantageous. It furthor sup
poses, said Professor Taylor, that
differences of trade are differences of
production and that production takes
place whero it is easiest. No consid
eration is taken of the fact that the
place of production and consequently
the course of trade may bo moved.
In answer to these suppositions
Professir Taylor maintained that
trade is not always established by
reason of apparent advantages, but
sometimos by racial relations, as is
shown by the fact that many En
glishmen In Argentine trade with
England when the United States is
in a bettor position to furnish the ar
ticles sought. lie declared that tne
samo efforts should be made to found
a foreign trade as to found an Intern
al trade. He showed that sacrifices
aro made to further internal com
merce and that it is as incumbent
upon the government to. make sacri
fices in order to find foreign markets
as it is upon tho foreigner to seek
our markets.
Professor Taylor then minted the
president's message to the effect that
it should bo tho purpose of tho gov
ernment to extend its markets. lie
defined tho reciprocity policy as the
poncy of trying to extend markets
bv means of offerlpg inducements In
tariff rates to foreign countries. Ho
maintained that there is not much
free trade about tho Dingley law be
cause it allows reciDrocltT in connec
tion with certain articles only to the
extent of 20 per cent which makes
tho tariff about wJuiklt was under
the McKlnloy law.
"Professor Taylor claims that tho
great question with regard to recip
rocity Is whechor tho government
shall adjust trade relations or wheth
er such adjustment shall bo loft to
individuals in the natural course of
A contraot has been made between
the athletic boara and Coach V. (J.
Booth by tho terms of which tho lat
ter agrees to remain with Nebraska
for tho next football season. This
puts to rest tho disquieting rumors
to tho effect that Coach Booth has
neon contemplating signing a con
tract with Wisconsin.

The number of pictures from Buff

worthy cf remark being Blashflied's
"Angel with Flaming Sword," one
of t61presrTt"(lay masterpieces and

These pictures will all bo first class

productions of more prominent

fact that it is tho best west of Chi

Tho decorous quiot of the Unlvor
isty Library was rudely disturbed
last night about 7 o'clock by tho re
port that the sophomores had put up
a scurrilous epitaph In the library
hall as a ohallengo to tho class of
1005. Tho postor staled on tho bul
letin board long enough for every ono
in the library to see it, boiore a
bold freshman ventured to tear it
nown. If tiic freshmen accept the
chaliengo as it is thought they will,
this wlli probably prccipltato a class
scrap among the lower classmon.
Tho poster was printed In bold jot
ters and read as follows:
Nauseous Numbskulls!
Imps of 1005!
Drink death and seek tiio cofll

Tho class or 1004 having reaobed
