In tho last Issue of tho Unlvorslty

to a discussion of tho question as to
whether or not tho stato universities
should accept tho Carnegio Rotliing
Pensions. The author qf the nrttelo,
Professor Georgo Elliott Howard, 3s
particularly capable of speaking on
thlB subject, as his -work has boon

touch with tho question. Tho matter
is of great importance to tho unlvoc

Professor Howard discusses the
question franklyand.comesao'the ;on-v
elusion that the pension system should
b6 accepted. He says among other
"Therd: are obvious reasons why a
collegiate penBlon system may prove
of great social and educational value.
At tho best, professorial incomes ;irp
small compared with tho rownrds
-which the same ability and cost of
training aro able to command in many
other vocatjons. Yet ItJ. of the great
est moment to society that scholars
engaged In tho creative research by
which tho boundaries of knowledge ure
widened Bhall bo freed from apxloty
on tho bread-and-butter question, and
be able to devote themselves zealously
and uninterruptedly to research.
"This winter, In all of tho states
nhoso legislatures meet, the question
Mill arise: Shall the nroffer of the
retiring pensions be accepted? Tho
question Is almost sure to bo answered
in tho affirmative, Thftt sentiment is
strongly in favor,' the writer knows
from personal discussion with ropre'
8entatiye men of leading universities,
such as those of Minnesota and Wis
