MAY GET PENSIONS
REGENTS APPLY FOR CARNEGIE
THE LEGISLATURE MUST RATIFY
If Successful It Will Result in Reliev
ing Evils of the Small Salaries
That Are Now Paid to
Within the next day or two the leg
Mature of the stato will be asked to
grant permission, by joint resolution,
to professors of the university to take
advantage of the Carnegie pension
turfd for retired profosBOrs. While
this will not In any way Increase the
snlarleB Which professors in the uni
versity are now paid, It will, by guar
anteeing them adequate pay after they
retire, do much to overcome the evil
effects of the present small salaries.
The Carnegie pension fund is In
charge of fifteen prominent meji and
was made with the Intention of help
ing to place education on the plane
where Its Importance naturally places
It. The Carnegie foundation is avail
able to professors only upon retire
ment under certain conditions.
Regents Have Acted.
In order for the university to enjoy
tho bcnefitB of this foundation it is
necessary for tho board of regents to
make application and for this applica
tion to be approved by Joint resolution
of the legislature. Tho regents re
cently made application and all that
now remains to bo done Is for the
legislature to approve the applica
tion. Mombers of the university faculty
are unanimous, regardless of their
lews on different subjects, In feeling
that the university should obtain the
benefit of this foundation. The re
gents are also very anxious to secure
it, as they feel that it is impossible
to make the salaries of professors so
large that there will not 'be need of
the pension. During tho past two
years a slight Increase in the salary
roll of the university has been made,
but not nearly enough has been clone
to bring them up to tho standard that
prevails In many other universities of
the same class.
Provisions of Pension.
All professors who rocelvo pensions
must be at least Blxty-ilvo years old
and must have been actually engaged
in university teaching for a period of
at least fifteen years. To ono who
has received a salary of $1,200 a
year the pension would be $1,000 a
ear. For oach additional $100 that
the professor receives the pension
provides an additional $."0. In case
that a salary of less than $1,200 is
being received, the pension cannot ex
coed 90 per cent of the amount of tho
It Is sometimes contended that the
granting of a pension might have an
undesirable effect upon tho public ut
terances of those who benefited by It.
This, however, is shown by thoso In
terested In the matter to bo an un
sound objection, as tho fund has
passed absolutely from the control oflery' lH receiving the continued patron
Mr. Carnegie and Is held by a board
of trustees and Is distributed auto
matically, simply under the conditions
laid down In the trusteeship. No mat
ter what doctrines any man may hold
or teach, the pensions will be grantod
only on condition that he fulfill all
So far aB has been Indicated, tho
attltudo of the membors of the legis
lature Is entirely favorable to tho rati
fication of the regents' application.
As there is objection to any decided
Increase in the salaries pf professors
at the present time, It Is folt that this
will In a way make up for It.

NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, FRIDAY,
TWO S0PHSJRE OUT
COULTER AND HYDE ANNOUNCE
NEW SENIOR CANDIDATE OUT
Rumor Has It That E. G. Davis May
Become Third Aspirant Among
Fourth-Year Men, Contest
ing With Hills and Baker.
As prophesied in yoBtorday's Dally
Nobraskan, H. W. Coulter has an
nounced IiIb candidacy for the presi
dency of the sophomore class. Tho
announcement was made late yoBter-
day afternoon afior Mr. Coultor had
given careful consideration to the mat
ter and had decided thnt he had a
good chanco to win. A second can
didate appeared In the person of Les
lie Hydo, who commenced an active
oanvaBs for votes yesterday. Hyde's
fame had not been mentioned In con
nection with so -homoro politics until
yesterday and the announcement was
quite a surprise to most of the class.
Rumor of a third candidate could
not bo traced to an authentic source
although they wero plentiful umong
spphomoreB who had time to talk. L.
11. Temple, whose name had been con
nected with presidential aspirations lu
sophomore political gossip for several
days past, definitely denied last even
ing thnt he hud any intention of mak
ing tho race. "I havo not considered
the matter at all," said Mr. Temple,
"and I will not consider It under any
circumstances." His absolute denial
will put an end to numerous efforts
of Dame Rumor to connect him with
such intentions ph he now sprns.
H. B. Werner of Hebron Is another
man who was urged by some of IiIb
lrlendu for tho second-year place, but
he declined absolutely to allow his
name to be considered, nother man
who wnB equally resoluto In his at
lltude on the question was C. J. Lord
Coulter and Hyde.
H. W. Coulter and Leslie Hydo. the.
only two candidates who havo yot
made formal announcements, are both
popular men In tho class. Coulter has
taken an active part In class affairs
slnco his entrance to tho university in
tho fall of 1907. He Is registered In
the academic college and Is a member
of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. Ho
Is a graduate cf Canon City, Colo.,
LeBlle Hyde Is a Lincoln high school
product. Although ho has not been
so prominent In the affairs of the
sophomore elass, ho Is well known
about school and especially In the
academic school In which he Is regis
tered. He does not belong to any
Unless other candidates enter tho
tunning, Hyde will probably draw a
very largo majority of the Lincoln
members of the Bophomoro claBS.
Heretofore the LIncolnltes have stood
well together although it is hardly
likely that their vote will be delivered
quite so unanimously to ono candidate
at any time In tho future as It was
last year when Lincoln men ran Tor
office. T'ne tondoncy In all classes Is
to do away with high school ties with
each added year In tho university and
hub principle is- hoped by Coulters
friends to enable him to cut Into the
Lincoln vote to some extent. On the
other hand, tho antipathy which us
ually exists In a freshman class
against Lincoln on tho part of Btu
donta out In the stato will, of course,
also have died away to a considerable
extent, so that Hydo will gain in all
probability as much as, he Iobcs.
Tho "machine" agitation which dls
rupt,ed the sophomores last fall has an
echo In tho statement of Coultor that
he Is absolutely an Independent can
didate. This candidate states that he
wishes It distinctly understood that
although he is a frat man he Is not
supported by any clique, elthor ma
chine or nntl-machlne.
In the Senior Class.
Rumor yestorduy was actlvo placing
r third man in nomination for the
eonlor presidency. It was said that
an acadomlc student was intending to
tin against Baker and Hills and. that
1!b candidacy would be announced
very shortly. Ono statement was to
the effect that Ed G. Davis, a six-year
medio, was considering whether or
iot ho might stand a chanco of mak
ing a. good race. Mr, Davis culd not

PROF. R088 SPOKE AT INDIANA.
Former Nebraska 'Man at Anniversary
HLOOMINGTON, Ind., Jan. 20. Tho
elgiity-nlnth annlvorsary of the found
ing of Indiana university waH cele
brated here today with appropriate
exorcises. Tho principal address was
given by Professor E. A. Robb of tho
University of Wisconsin, whoso Bub-je-ct
was "Rampant Commercialism. '
He spoke, In part us follow:
"Business men arc coming to dom
inate the country. No party cun win
without their favor. They finance
philanthropy, constitute the pillars of
tho church and s ipport colleges. Thoy
Include, moreover, so many capablo
and imirtlcrful men that their ideals
tend to become the reigning Idculn of
the community, lu Europe thero Is,
an aristocratic class BUb-ordlnatlng
business to living, and their human
Idtlc appreciation of things reaches
down and lnllucnceB the general -com
munity. Hence tho profits motive
there Is more confined to the buslnorfh

EXAMINATIONS TO START EARLY
Several Tests 8et for Tomorrow Morn
ing and Afternoon.
With the placing of several exami
nations at some hour tomorrow, exam
ination week thlb year practically be
gins . Saturday and occupies seven
days instead of six as usual. Prior
to this year all but ono or two of th
tests havo been crowded into the six
days of tho week, regularly designated
as examination weok. This year, how-
over, It was found noccssary to set
all Botany I sections, as well as Rhet
oric I classes on tho Saturday preced
ing. Ono reason for the shifting of
the botany clasKCB from a later date
was tho continuance of tho art ex
hibit during this week. It had been
intended to close tho exhibit last Sat
urday and to havo all tho pictures out
of the way UiIb weok. As it is, tho
art gallery will be In a state of con
ftiHlon for a great part of next weok
and the absence ot rooms of sufficient
size on the campus to accommodate
all the large eludes made It absolute
ly necessary to 'nave tho two hundred
students In botany take their test to
morrow. The Rnetorlc I and the Lit
erature I classei and a part of the
chemistry classes will' also have tests
ACTS ON THE TRAINING TABLE
Athletic Board Thinks It Inexpedient
to Abolish Custom.
Tho University of Nebraska athletic
board at a special meeting held in
Dr. Clapp's office yesterday afternoon
went on record as believing that tho
abolition of the football training table
Is "Inexpedient at tho present time.''
This queBtlon was brought up at tho
recent meeting of tho Missouri vulley
conference reprrtentntivcs in Kansas
.City, when it way voted, six to one", to
do away with tho custom of feeding
football men on special diet during
the training season. The action of tho
athletic board yesterday disapproved
tho work of the conference at the re
cent Kansos City meeting. '
The Nebraska board also yesterday
declared Itself, to be In favor of per
mitting college university athletes to
play amateur summer base hall. It
was the sentiment of tho hoard that
no athlete shoulu be barred from par
ticipation In. college sports for play
ing summer baseball so long as ha
receives no poy for his sovlces. The
Nebraska board is in favor of placing
enly liberal restrictions on the ath
letics of this university,
