When we took thlB Job we promised
favor of University removal. Now wo
go back on thin promlHe. We find
after reading practically everything
that has been written on removal
that the arguments on both sides are
Inconclusive. The arguments for re
moval are as plausible and encourag
ing to the removallstt as are the argu
ments for high tariff to the prot.'C-
on of removal Isn t worth the paper
It Is written on. A professor's puro
theory Is equally valueless. It la
money out of no student's pocket, and
It Is money out of no professor's
pocket whichever policy prevails. It
Is a question for the tax-payers of
the state; the tax-payers who sup
port both student and professor. It
Is also a question for the decision i
of the people's representatives In the
legislature and one the board of re-'
gents. No student or professor who
can't prove the advantage of either!
policy should waste either time or j
talk debating removal.
For those who know that the Uni-1
verslty's chief need is more money,'
one argument for removal Is tolerably i
conclusive. Nebraska Is an agrlcul-'
tural state, nnd its people are farmers. I
Nebraska Is an agricultural state.
and the members of Its legislature are
farmers Nebraska Is an agj-icul-1
tural state, and the people and their
representatives are especially an
xious to appropriate money for agri
cultural education. For the last five i
years of the time during which the
State Farm and tho University have '
been separate institutions, half the
appropriation for purposes of higher
education has gone to the State Farm.
Despite tho fact that more students
attend this campus than go to the
Farm, and despite the fact that the
College of Agriculture Is really lo
cated here, this part of the University
tlonlst. The arguments against re
moval are as plausible and encourag-, js poorer today than the State Farm
lng to the extcnslonist as are the ar-1 To stop the splitting of our appro
guments for a revenue tariff to the prlatlon, and to secure for the acd-froo-trader.
Tho Report of the Board I dcinic and professional branches of
of Regents contains all the material
allegations that have since been ad
dded to the plea for removal.
O. W. Miller's article, published in
last Thursday's forum. Is equally com
prehensive In embracing all that can
possibly be said against removal. For
ought that we can see In the Pro
ductions of tho Regents or Mr. Miller,
tho removal question is undebatable
You can't prove that students will
be better off or worse off a mile from
O street Miller's "outer world." You
can't prove that any more students
will work their way through school
after removal than before removal.
You can't prove that the total amount
earned by students slll be greater
after removal than before removal
You can't prove that University stu
dents will love the beautiful and ap
preciate tho aesthetic any more after
removal than before removal. You
can't even prove that business Lincoln
will be any better or any worse off
after removal than before removal.
So far as concerns any of these points
upon which both sides have joined is
sue, you cannot by rational means
reach any but a purely theoretical
conclusion. We still Insist that re
moval Is undebatable.
One thing is undoubtedly certain.
Removal concerns neither University
students nor University professors.
A student's yea or nay on tho ques-
the University their just share of
University money, consolidation is the
policy we want.
Elsewhere in this issue we publish
.in anonymous letter informing us that
we know we are not allowed to say
what we think. The stuff Is well
wiitten. spicy, interesting. We gave
most of it front page space. The rest
of Jt we burned. We like that kind
of talk. It accomplishes two good
purposes; it advertises the Common
Rumor; it probably Interests our
readers. The only thing wo could
ask of the writer is that he give us
his name, and that he addresses his
criticism not to us but to tho Dally
Nebraskan. We don't want to call
the Student Publication Board names
that are really Intended for us.
