UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, J903.
WON'T SAY MUCH
Authorities Mum on Subject of
Say Knough, However, to Imllonto There
In Something to It.
Although everyone at the University
Is diligently engaged In discussing the
rumored Rockefeller bequest, very few
know anything definite about It, and
the few who do are keeping as quiet
about it as a constant stream of In
quiries will permit. Moat that was
gleaned yesterday by a Nebraskan re
porter was from people momentarily
taken off their guard, and conveying
Information In response to seemingly
and supposed Innocent questions.
Enough was learned, however, to
assure tho Inquirer that the reply of
an "Informed person," Monday, that
he could "positively state there was
nothing to" the Rockefeller rumor was
a conscience-straining response. In
fact, when tho reporter repeated the
reply of yesterday to this particular
member of the faculty, he smiled dep
recatingly, and said, "Well, I presume
there'B no harm In your publishing the
Has Hoen Under Consideration for Homo.
As a matter of fact, the Rockefeller
proposition has been under secret con
sideration for some time by Chancellor
Andrews and a number of the faculty
from time to time called in to consult
with him concerning It. So skilfully
was tho consultation carried on, how
ever, that no hint of It leaked out until
within tho last two or three days, and
Interested parties are still wondering
who was the first glvor-out of the Im
portant news. Even yesterday morn
ing members of the faculty were mu
tually suspicious, and refused to dis
cuss tho subject with each other until
they learned that "tho other follow"
had been consulted, too, and was also
"next" the secret subject.
Not a Million Dollar Offer.
From a very reliable Bourco It was
learned that tho Rockefeller proposi
tion had not yet been definitely form
ulated, but even In Its rough outline
embraced nothing like a two-thirds of
a million endowment When, asked if
It meant a building or buildings, as
suggested In yesterday's item, the
party giving this information asked
to' seo tho Item, and then said he
guessed ho "had'nt anything more to
When officially approached for In
formation, the authorities said thoro
was nothing to bo given out for pub
lication now, but "there might bo

reporter concluded matters muBt be
approaching Bome sort of a head.

that "Rockefeller was responsible for

Informed a reporter yesterday that
this was entirely untrue; Mr. Rocke
feller was not only not responsible for
that step, but was an open friend of
the chancellor, his son having been a
Brown graduate during Dr. Andrew's
presidency, and a warm personal
friend of his. It is surmised that the
latter fact may account for tho pro
posal which the University is undoubt
edly considering in secret conclave.
Just at present the most-discussed
question is, how would such a be
quest be regarded by the supporters
of the University the people, who
maintain it, and the faculty, who do
tho actual daily work. Opinion as to
their attitude is very much divided,
but the majority seem to think that
the faculty as a whole favor accep
tance, and that the people of the state
would probably do the same after a
little thought on the matter. Never
theless, there is quite an active mi
nority sentiment, and what it might
accomplish in an open campaign for
endorsement Is quite a question.
The Nebraskan jb sorry to be com
pelled to leave its readers those who
do not take the city papers in ignor
ance for a week concerning develop
ments of as much importance to tho
University as those of the coming
week will undoubtedly be. It Is a cir
cumstance, however, that, under pres
ent conditions, cannot bo avoided. It
Is safe to promise, however, that tho
first number after the Easter recess
will contain full Information as to
what has happened during the preced
ing seven days.
The University authorities report a
new grievance, In the stealing of soap
and towels from the various lavatories
on the campus. ThlB new form of
thieving has arisen within tho last
month, and is a decided puzzler. Soap
cannot be tied down with a chain, and
uwels are easily removed from even
locked rollers by the use of a pen
knife. How to give the many these
apparently necessary privileges when
the few so seriously abuse them 1b
quite a problem. It is hoped a little
warning may result In the disappear
ance of this now form of annoyance,
and more stringent measures thus be

son has given every indication of be

the Western league. His work has
been a revelation to Captain Delehanty
as he Is possessed of great speed and
has a wide and varied assortment of
curves, together with magnificent con
trol. He 1b an old college twlrler, hav
ing played with the University of Ne
braska team for four years. Ho made
the university team in his freshman
year and was elected captain of the
team In his second yejir. After leav
ing Nebraska he signed with the Oma
ha team of the Western league, where
he was extremely popular with tho
fans. He won a majority of his games
there and batted at a .267 clip. He
was given a short trial by Manager
Parke Wilson last year and, although
he made a good showing In the threo
games he pitched, ho was allowed to
go. He finished the season with tho
Tacoma team of the Pacific Northwest
league, where he more than mado
good. In tho early part of the present
year he went to Boulder, where he
coached the university team for three
weeks. He then received a call from
hiB alma mater to come and assist the
baseball team In Its early practice and
put In four weeks there coaching the
team. He is now in fine condition and
as ho neither smokes nor drinks,
should make one of the most reliable
men on the team."
