COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS
REMOVAL OF UNIVERSITY
NOT EXPEDIENT, TO EXPAND THE
PRESENT CAMPUS.
1
ONE MILL LEVY IS .. REQUIRED
All Col leges vWJJl, Go toStafe Farm
and May Mean "Severing of
Conservatory.
The joint committee of the leglsla
ture which "has been investigating the
university removal proposition since
the middle of -January held a final
meeting Saturday at the Lindell hotel
and decided to submit n report favor
able to the removal. Ten of the
eleven members of the committee
wore present at the meeting Saturday
and nil but three were lnffa'vor of the
removnl ttb'to "the 'beginning. These
three wenaflnajly.1wonjover, after tho.
matter had been argued most or th
day. The greatest objection, raised
was over the large expenso necessary.
A sub-committee of three was ap
pointed to draw up the report, which
will probably be presented to both
houses today.
'An additional one mill levy Is to be
recommended to' meet the expense of
the removal. The report will state
that without this Idvy the removal
cannot be accomplished and if the
legislature refuses to adopt this it will
bo recommenced that the university
stay where it iB. The committee de
cided that if the members of the
legislature do not want to levy one
mill for 'the removal a levy of one
liaU mill, In addition to the regulnr
mill levy, would be asked with which
,to p.rect new buildings and repair and'
remove others. Tho. amount raised
by this one-half mill levy would be
divided equally between the univer
sity and the university farm, the re
gents to supervise tho expenditures.
Tho present levy of one mill ralscB
annually about $400,000. This amount
Just about pays tho cost of operation.
The committee accepts the recom
mendation of the chancellor and re
gents in the matter of the medical
school at Omaha. The school will be
Kept in that city, but the course there
will be changed from two to four
years, leaving only the two years pre-
.parntory work- in Lincoln. The law
school will be taken to the farm, with
tho other colleges. The school ol
muBlc, which is practically a privately
owned institution, will probably no
longer be affiliated with the university
if the removal is accomplished.
The committee repo.rt will loolc fai
Into the future. It is agreed that for
perhaps ten years the university work
will be at a, disadvantage owing to the
erection and equipment of new build
ings and the necessary inevitable com
motion of,, moving, but It Is argued that
the following ten years will bring cor
responding advantages and tho ulti
mate economy and efficiency In twenty
years would' be overwhelmingly In
favor qfth1 consolidation, of 'the two
schools, on the farm campus.
Thojmatter of expanding tho pres
ent $fte of the university was looked
Into and found hardly possible, The
farm campus can be extended much
more easily. The old campus would

TIED FOR SECOND.
IE AM WORK AGAIN WIN OAME
Carrier's Playing Is Feature of1 the
Game, and Hlltner Outjumps
His Opponent.
Still maintaining its winning streak,
the Nebraska basketball team IubL
night defeated Missouri by a score of
30 to 2,'J, ftB a result of which both are
tied for second place In tho Missouri
Valley. Tho contest was fast from
start to finish and a grlm5dotcrmlnn-(
tion to win" was apparent on both'
sides, nil of which tended to make
tho nlay rough. So interesting wns

second half tho spectators wore car

loath to ceaBo, each one seeming to
have u desire to make more noise
than all the roBt put together. It waB
necessary to stop the game, and then
it took over five minutes before quiet
reigned sufficient to hoar tho referee'B
whistle.
Team Work Wins.
While the -Tigers worethe. better ,
basket shopters, they were unable to
overcome tho advantage which supe
rior team work gave to tho Cornhusk
ers. Ijong shots wero favorites,, and
soveral times tho basket was located
from a distance and at a difficult
angle. Nebraska on the other hand
made the greater number of her
points from beneath tho ring, It being
unnecessary to make long throws on
account of the team work which tho
Tigers wero upablo to break up at all
times.
Individual Play.
The feature of Nebraska's" playing
was tho team work. There was no In
dlvldnal starring. However, Carrier
might bo said to have carried1 off tho
honors of the evening. He was there
in finding the basket and guarding his
man well. Hutchinson was a llttlo off
In throwing goals from tho field, but
moro than made up for It In his fnst
floor work and certainty on' froo
throws, outpointing the Missouri
man at tho latter. Frank played
close to his man throughout the game
and gave him little chance for any
unguarded throw, while he made two
from the field himself, Hlltner out
Jumped his opponent and was an Im
portant factor In Intercepting the
ball before It could get within tossing
distance of the Missouri basket. Gib
son was closely guarded, "but succeed

land two in the net. Ho rendered tho
most valuable assistance when Ne

lines. Wattors went in for Hutchin
son in the last half, but was given no
opportunity to try for tho basket.
