Hoard Some menibei obserwd that the policy ol electing men to positions without giving notice to the student public of the acancy tended to the formation ol a-clique composed ol the appointees ot the upper stafl mem hers. Acting upon the wisdom of this observation, the Hoaid appointed no circulation manager, but decided to advertise for more applications The Hoard next took up the matter of Nebiaska salaries left In an un settled slate last meeting It was definitelv decided that for this semes ter absolutel no credit was to be given for work on the Rag. The Re gents granted the Hoard permission to pay the editors money instead of credit ncording to the following schedule ot salaiies editor in chief, $100 per senieslei , managing editor, $50 per semester, one associate edi tor, $f0 per semester.

Lest this annual spring loss -of advertising should imperil the chances of bearing this additional burden a committeo was appointed to see whether the University should be requested to make any advances for Nebraska salaries.

PARTY WON Found Some Opposition On Western Trip Institute Idea Much Fa vored by Potato Growers. The members of the Nebraska Po tato Institute won out against much opposition last week in Scotts Hluff count. The Potato Institute party sent out by the Universltv into the Tri state irrigation country besides getting stuck In a snow drift while go nig across country in an auto, on counted public sales with free lunch as a side attraction in every town they struck. In spite of this it was a very successful trip and the potato grow ers gained some very valuable point ers The success was due partly to the efficiency of the demonstrators and also to the new idea of concentrating upon one subject. The party con sisted of Miss Pascal, ou cooking; Prof. R. A. Emerson, potato breeding; Professor Wilcox, potato diseases; L. D. Sweet of Colorado, the growing of the potato, and N. G. Nelson of Omaha, the marketing of the potato. This is contrary to the usual custom of having the farmersB Institute deal with every thing in the way of farm ing. The indications are that this new way will take procedei. old. Must be Taken by WEATHER REJOICES FANS BALMY 8PRING AIR BRINGS BACK 'MIT8, BATS, BALL8 INTO HEART8 OF BASEBALL ENTHUSIA8T8.

Uoscoe Pound, 1888, formerly of the University of Nebraska and now Story professor of law in the Harvard University Law school, has recently published in the American Journal of Sociology an extremely interesting and instructive paper on "Social Prob lems and the Courts." The aubject is discussed from an evolutionary standpoint and with his well-known clearness he expresses himself so definitely that when one has finished reading It he finds that he has a very good notion indeed of the whole prob lem. The paper Is too long to bo sum marized but it can be commended as one of the best of recent contribu tions. March 15 (1 1 ft w .
