In order to acquaint the parents of
students attending the Unlvorsity with
the exact amounts of the fees -charged
their young hopefuls, Registrar E. M.
Rutledgo Is sending out the following
notice: "The University of Nebraska,
Lincoln: I am directed to adviBe you
for your personal information, that
the total amount or foes paid by the
student named below for the current
semector of the Unlvorsity Is .
This covers all regular fees required
by the University, but does not in
clude text books, etc. Respectfully.
E. M. Rutlodge, Registrar."
Helped Defray Other Expenses.
There has been a prevailing impres
sion that not infrequently the amounts
of the fees were slightly exaggerated
by students in order to defray sundry
little expenses, such as formals, Or
pheum tickets, smokers, etc.
When father and mother foregather
over the oxponse accounts of their
dutiful offspring this semester, they
will lay out beside son's letter the
official notice of the amount of feeB
paid. 'Perhaps there will be a vari
ance, and perhaps not. Only the Uni
versity authorities intend that in the
future thero shall be none.
No warning of the notice was givon
to the studonts and it 1b more than
likely that some very ingenious ex
planations will be in order shortly.
One student, who lives in Lincoln,
according to roports, told his father
that he was registered in the law col
lege Father bolloved his son im
plicitly and does yet, for the young
man was lucky enough to forestall the
notice in his father's mall. The no
tice that his father didn't receive was
to the effect that his son's registra
tion fees were $4. He turned over $21
to his son, $17 of which, was clear
profit for "son," who was registered
in the academic college and not the
college of law.
Received in Lincoln.
Parents in Lincoln have already re
ceived the notices. ThoBe out in the
state will be heard from shortly.
Xhoro is one avenue still loft open
to students who wish to "graft" from
dad. As pointed out specifically in
the registrar's notice, text books are
not included in the total amount of
foes sot out.
It is to bo assumed by some that
there will bo at once a phenomenal
rise in the -price of books, one which
v. ill make that of the cost of living
look small and insignificant.
