CHEAP EDUCATION.

an annual por capita coHt of $221.
Others run nil tho way up to $fi;i4.
Such figures us liosc do not auom
toN show extravagance. It Is, of
couYhq, possible that Nebraska's tax
able property Is" smaller than that of
other states having a similar nimibor
of studonts attending tho Btato uni
versity. In such a case tho taxation
would bo higher in proportion to tho
property thnn in these states. Rut IT
Nebraska Is ablo to sond U,500 stu

that her propprty valuo should bo such

as other states with a similar enroll

A UNIVER8ITY PREBIDENTV
It hiiH boon frequently pointed out
that tho functlonB of a collogo presi
dent today aro oHHon'tlnlly dlfferonl
from those of tbo college president of
fonnor times. When tho Rev. Wil
liam Smith, more than ICO yeora ago,
was,' by tho Proprietary of tho pro
vince", appointed provost of tho acad"
oiny which was tho foundation atone
of tho University of Pennsylvania, It
was the chief function of (ho head of
every Amoricun institution of learn
ing to "Impress on the tender minds
of youth tho principles of morality
and 'religion." Until a comparatively
recent date. In most colleges In the
United States, tho prosldcnt has been
called upon not moroly to exorcise
tho usual oxecutlvo functions, but to
till in addition a chair of philosophy,
or theology, or othlcs, or hollos Iottres.
Tho chief academic ofllcor, moreover,
has generally been a clergyman, and
but rarely has ho boon chosen by Jho
corporation or I ha boardvof trustees
for conspicuous nusincss nullities or
financial astuteness.
Tho day has passed when a college
-president was chosen-for-his Hhinlng
example of godly living rather than
for his executive ability. The ipodorn
president is an administrator rather
than a teacher, and, as a rule, he
docs not appear In the classroom, but
keeps otllco hours like any Other man
of business. In a great university ho

comes but rarely into close personal
contact with the Btudonts. Tho only
ocpnslons upon whlcl ho addresses
thorn at length aro perhaps attho be
ginning of the academic year, when
the freshmen are welcomed, or at its
close, when, on commencement day,
tho degrees aro conferred. Most oT
hjs tlmf nnd'cnorgy must necessarily
be devoted tortho unceasing endeavor
to produce the wherewithal for the
niaintohanco of the dlverso beneficent
activities of tho university. Tbo bond
