A aTRIKINQ COMPARISON.
Tho feeling Is often expressed by
thoso whoso nctlvltloB do not bring
them In direct contact with tho work
of tho university that porhnps the uni
versity la being extravagantly run am',
that tho largo amount of money which
is annually being spent here might
bo moro profitably spent In some other
department of tho state's work. A
most interesting light is cast on this
problem by a tablo of figures printed
hi' an editorial of ono of the prominent
papers of' tho state a fow days ngo.
Tho editorial Is as follows:
"Tho total Incomo from all sources,
of tho stato university In 1907, was
In round numbers $527,000. This
-amounts to a coRt por student of
$109. During tho -samo yenr the In
come of tho University of California
was $1,321,000, or $442 per studont;
University of Colorado, $798,000. or
$351 por student; University of Illi
nois, $1,007,000, or $233 por studont;
Univorslty of Iown, $908,000, or $204
por student; University of Michigan,
$1,583,000, or $264 per studont; Uni
vorslty of Minnesotn, $1,166,000, or
$281 por studont; University of Wis
consin, $1,124,000, or $307 per student.
"During the samo year tho ratio of
studontB to instructor was in No

"It will bo seen, from this Bhowlng,
that tho Income of tho University of
Nebraska is much less than that of
other stato . universities pf the same
class; that tho cost per student aver
ages only about 60 per cent what it
dooB olsewhero; that tho number of
instructors in proportion to students
is very much less, and that tho in
structors are paid an average of 20
to GO per cent less in Nebraska than
jn the other.unlvorsjties.
"Wlion these facts aro taken Into
consideration, und when It is romom-
bored that, in spite of theso handi
caps, Nebraska's university ranks
shoulder to shoulder with tho othor
untvorsitles mentioned in scholarship
though not in equipment, it appears
h"at tho charge of extravagance ' is
falso and unjust.
"Tho truth Is that not another state
in tho union, in providing for higher
education, has received, for the
amount invested, such largo returns
as Nobraska has received out of the
University of Nebraska."
ABOLI8HE8 THfe COUNTY FAIR'
May Morning Breakfast Also Ruled
Out at Iowa.
Thero will be neither a county fair
nor a May morning breakfast at Iowa
this year. Such is tho report which

May-polo, dancos, crowning of the
queen, and a long procession aro some
of tho features on tho program already

out plan and say that they will do all

This is n radical change and In the
opinion of the Dally Iowan will no
doubt meet with tho unqualified ap
proval of the studonts. Tho county

difficult to find new features that in

Happenings of the Past
Seven Years Ago.
Dr. Fling predicted in n convocation
address that it would take 250 years
to know whether the French experi
ment in Algeria would be n success.
A symposium of complaints on tho
alleged lack of spirit in the junior
class attracted attohtlon.
Six Years Ago.
Ex-Chnnccllor McLean was quoted
at length by the Dally Nebraskan in
defense of football, which was at that
time a target for considerable opposi
tion. Dr. McLean declared that the
good effects out-balanced the ovll. He
thought tho game should bo played
under close supervision, however.
Five Years Ago.
The Junior Prom nt the Lincoln was
a splendid nffair. An unusually large
number of alumni und out-of-town
guests were present. A. H. Lundln
was chairman of the committee and
W. D. Green muster of ceremonies.
Four Years Ago.
Cnptain Bender hold tho first baso
ball practice with a good number of
old and now men trying for positions.1
One Year Ago.'
Contrary to student expectation,
President R.. E. Weaverllng of tho
freshman class was indefinitely buh
pended by Chancellor Andrews. ;t
had been thought that tho punishment
of the cIobs officers would end with
tho return of Dale McDonald, the kid
napped sophomore, but- such, proved
not to bo tho case.
