." COSTIGAN remains.'
Professor Maxey Remains and Profes
sor Ayers to Resign Contract for
the Engineering Building Let.
The Board of Regents closed their
meetings yestorday after a two days'
session. Much interest has been
manifested in these meetings by' the
University in general because of the
number of important matters that
came up. Probably most Interest was
centered about the election of the
fuculty of the law school, because of
the friction which was known to exist
there. Last Friday and Saturday a
petition was circulated to have Dean
Costigan removed and another to have
Professor retained. It was claimed
that these petitions were quite gen
erally signed by the law studentB.
Later those in favor of the retention
of Dean Costigan adopted resolutions
discountenancing the reasons given
for his removal. The Dean himself
was in favor of the removal of Pro
fessor Ayers and the retention of
Professor Maxey. The Regents de
cided to retain Dean Costigan and
Professor Maxey, but asked for the
resignation of Professor Ayers at once,
to take effect at once.
The contract for the new Engineer
ing building was let to Qoujjd & Son,
of ;OnjattfjJi7,hQ., original plan 6f the
building called for an appropriation of
$95,880, but the Regents added $33,000
to this amount for roofing and other
things which were not included before.
Many professors were raised In
rank, and the annual budget for the
different departments was apportlbned.
Several changes will be made about
the campus of the State Farm drive
ways, walks and gardens will be laid
- out.
IJt was expected that some action
would betaken in regard to the pur
chase of a new athletic field, but-that
matter had to . be deferred until the
next meeting when the committee,
v7hlch- has several places under con
sideration, will report.
The length of the Easter recess was
not changed, as had been rumored
about the campus.

Home Concert.
.The Glee Club is fast rounding Into
shape for the home concert on April
24. The vacation comes between this
time and then, which will probably
cause a few extra rehearsals, but the
boys are all willing to put In the extra
time because they, feel that this year's
t concert will be the beBt ever. There
remain three out-of-town dates yet, at
which the club expects to put on the
program almost as it will, appear in
Lincoln on the 24th. By doing this
the club will be perfectly familiar with
the prograln. On April 14 the club
will make Wahoo, on April 21, Kear
ney, and April 22nd, Central City or
some town in that vicinity..
The, tickets for the homo, concert
wJll probably be out before'the stu
debts go home for vacation.
