lug Hind of not h-s.s tlinn two million

Hume time it declared that tho I in
mediate Hettlement of the question
was imperative A faculty of com
mnnding abillt. the necessary build
ings and equipment make a great nnl
eislty on an site The University
ol Nebraska possesses men of ability,
but it does not afford them the facil-,
ities required for effective work. The
foundation departments of the college
of agriculture and of the scientific
courses In the arts college botany
und chemistr- are not provided with
rooms and equipment to properly ac
commodate one-hnlf o the present at-1
tendance Other important depart- j
ments are in the same plight. Theso
conditions together with a salary
schedule lower than the schedule of1
state universities with which the Ne
braska institution ought to take rank,
are making it increasingly dilHcult to
attract and retain leaders in their spe
cial field. i
The change of site recommended by
the board on the condition stated has
i
not met with the approval of all the
friends of the University. There are'
lojal sons who sincerely believe that
the present site should be retained.
The ievenue branch of the legislature1
has defeati'd lcmowil, partly on the
giound no doubt ot the expense, partly
on the ground that it believed there
were er ions objections It lias never
theless passed a bill which will give
the l'nheiMt immediate and sub '
stantial reliel It will provide the
build ng ot laboratories and equip
mint necessary lor elllcient instruc

otlm branch of the legisl.ituure, the1
conti oversv is at an end, and the
progress ol the Univeisity is assured I
The board ot regents under the con
st it iK ion of the state is charged wit hi
the responsibility of conserving the,
interests of the state's chief educa
tional institution Should it continue
to insist that its choice of a site be,
considered after the pressing needs,
of the institution are substantially'
supplied ,it might become responsible
for a. controversy that would deprive
the I'niversilv ot necessary support
for years In view of the lact t lint i
removal was defeated by the pieced-,
lug lcgislatiiH that it is opposed by
the governoi, that the revenue branch
ot the present legislature Is over
whelmingly against it, that a pro
longation ol the Issue over the site
might involve the univeisity m a long
.ind fruitless controversy, the board
has it ached the conclusion that the,
house measure should be supported.
It therefore urges every Iriend of the,
institution to unite on this bill, which
aftords substantial relief and gives the
hard working and taitliful instructors
ot the institution the long wished for
opportunity to teach under conditions
that make etliclent work possible.
In giving Its endorsement to the
House bill, the board assumes that It
Is the intention that the proceeds of
the half mill shall be expended for
permanent improvements at the Farm
as well as on tho city campus and
that the policy of the board to provide
liberally for special agricultural activ
ities is to continue."
Unanimously adopted by the Hoard
of Regents
We concur with our colleagues in
th loregoing statement because of
the tact that il consolidation can not
be In ought about at the state farm
we are most anxious to see provision
made for the safe housing of the pro
lessors and student-body orr the city
campus. The conditions which exist
there are a most serious menace to
life and health, and we desire also
that u dofinite and fixed policy of
university development shall be
brought about at this time. The leg
islature deciding that consolidation is
not desirable, we earnestly hope that
the nest interests of the agricultural
college will be conserved and nothing
done which will interfere with its
usefulness to the people of the state.

sity to come here and start a school
of music and the promise was made
to him that credit for work in his
school would be given by the Univer
sity to his pupils. Two years ago
this affiliation was brought to an end
and since that time the school has
been operating independently.
Representative Hurket defended
Mr Kimball's school He said that
the bill would require the change in
the name of a long standing corpo
ration of good reputation. The bill
would detract tiom the enrollment of
the school to the advantage of the
the lival school and to several music
teachers In cities in Nebraska where
Mr Kimball has established accred
ited branches of his school.
Mr. Rhine states that he did noth
ing to get tiie bill introduced, but that
he sent a letter to the house after
the bill had been introduced, and rec
omrnended that it be passed.
Mr. Kimball has prepared a letter
which will be placed before every rep
resentative' today. This letter will set
forth the facts of the case as he
views them
Freshmen as well as older students
