Body from the Upper
The University of Nebraska Is at
present receiving much, attention from
the stuto legislature. Monday, In
place of the Panama exposition dlB
cuBBlon, a chance for a fight was pre
cipitated by Representative Kirk of
Knox, who Introduced a resolution
calling for the appointment of a spe
cial committee to make Investigations
Into the feasibility of removing the
state university to the state farm, this
committee to report before any appro
priations for the university are con
sidered. On the objection of Gerdes
of Richardson, consideration of this
motion was deferred until Tuesday.
The committee on university re
moval desired by Kirk is to consist of
five members, according to the motion
which he made. It is to act with a
similar committee of fVve to be ap
pointed- f rom the senate."Its powers
are confined to a recommendation of
the advisability of removal.
Tuesday nothing was done by the
house with the Kirk resolution intro
duced on Monday providing for a spe
cial committee to Investigate and re
port recommendations on whether the
University of Nebraska should remain
where it Is or bo removed to another
location. Considerable opposition to
this proposal appeared to have been
aroused on the floor, and Its mover,
Kirk of Knox, agreed to have It go
over for another day. Gerdes of
Rlcahrdson gave notice that he would
have a substitute to offer. He said

the senate would probably reconsider
its action taken on Monday along the
same line, because its significance had
not been fully understood.

olution by referring It to the full com
mittee on finance, ways and means
and on university and normal schools,
Instead of to five members picked from
those committees, was made by
Mockett of Lancaster. Speaker Kuhl
ruled the suggestion out of order.
Bassett of Buffalo then offered an

this was voted down.
