Mitchell called for an investiga

removal from the chairmanship of
the agricultural economics depart

motion of Dr. C. Clyde Mitchell
from his position as chairman of
the department of agricultural ec

Rumors reached the Nebraskan
that the decision, called "irrevo
cable and final" had been an
nounced at a staff meeting of the
department of agricultural econ
omics held shortly before spring
vacation. Persons in attendance
said the demotion was due to "out
side pressures" which were not
clearly defined at the meeting.
On April 17 the rumor was con
firmed when W. V. Lambert, Dean
of the College of Agriculture, an
nounced after consultation with the
Chancellor that a successor to
Mitchell was being sought.
The reason given by Lambert
was "to strengthen beyond pres
ent levels the research and ex
tension programs in agricultural
economics." The Dean denied that
his decision involved Dr. Mitchell's

outside sources concerning the is
