Nebraska Man Recognized.
In a recent German periodical (Bo
taniBche Jahrbuecher) Professor Eng
ler, the eminent Gorman botanist,
praises the collection of plants made
by Dr. Clements la Colorado. He
speaks of it as "extraordinarily in
structive," and recommends it as a
pattern for other botanists. "With
these specimens," he says, "one is able
to obtain an altogether excellent no
tion of the character of the vegetation
of Colorado." Such praise from this
source is very gratifying to Dr. Clem
ents' friends, since it is well known
that foreign scientific men are not
much given to recognizing the work
Clifton Carter, '02, is visiting friends
in the city.
All the language classes are being
pushed as fast as possible into con

Refuses Salary Increase.
The Board of Regents-4t thoir Juno
session increased the salary of Chan
cellor Andrews from $5,00 to $6,000.
The extra $1,000 has been refused by
the Chancellor, with tho Implied state
ment that with tho financial condition
of tho university ho feels It not for
him to add another burden to the pres
It will be roraembered that Chancel
lor AndrcwB was offered a like posi
tion nt Wisconsin at a larger salary.
Howover, he refused, stating ho felt
a larger field lay before him In Ne
braska and that he was needed more
here. At the tLme a mass meeting of
students and faculty succeeded In mak
ing good an increase over the then ex
isting salary. However, this was not

to Increase tho Balary of tho Chan

drews at their last meeting, and is
"To the Hoporable Board of Ro
gents of tho State University Gentle
men: While deeply sensible of your
kindness In recently advancing my sal
ary and believing that the new figure
Is not greater than a Chancellor of
this university ought to earn and re
ceive, I am unwilling, so long as tho
university is compelled to tho rigid
economy it now exercises, to accept
for my services any higher remunera
tion than I have hitherto had, and
therefore beg permission to continue
for the present to be paid at tho old
rate. Very respectfully yours,
"E. BENJAMIN ANDREWS,
ThlB is another one of the Instances
in the life timo of Dr. Andrews that
ho has made some personal sacrifice

a greater degree than ever his effort
to do what he believes to be right.
