a volume of scientific papers. A com
m'tteo was appointed, with power to
act. to prepare the general plan for
such a publication and to make ar
rangements for a first number this
year. The committee has agreed upon
the following plan:
The name of the publication shall
be "Bulletin of tho Graduate Club of
the University of Nebraska."
The bulletin shall be published be
fore the first of June of each year.
It shall contain (1) such original
contributions to science by members
of the club as may be duly approved
and offered for publication by the
heads of departments, and (2) a brief
resume of similar papers, for which
space may not be found at the time,
and of theses accepted for a secondary
Each graduate department shall be
entitled, as far as space allows, to pub
lish annually in the bulletin one ar
ticle, not exceeding twenty pages in
length. A longer article may be ac
cepted, however, or more than one ar
ticle from the same department, if this
can be done without excluding articles
already accepted or without Injustice
to other departments.
Properly approved contributions
shall be accepted for publication in the
order in which they are presented to
the committee of publication at any
time before April 1. Approved contri
butions offered too late for publication
shall be summarized as stated above
and printed in full in the next issue of
Any approved contributions by n
graduateBtudent or by an instructor
shall be entitled to publication, pro
vided that each department offering an
approved contribution shall be entitled
to space in the bulletin boToro any
other department has published two or
more articles, and provided, also, that
contributions offered by students shall
take precedence of those offered by In
structors. To provide funds for the publication
of the bulletin each member of the
graduate dub shall contribute $1. It
Is proposed that in the future these
contributions shall be deposited, to
gether with tho matriculation fee, with
tho treasurer of the university and be
drawn upon by certified bills. It Is
furthermore hoped that some members
of the club may feel inclined to con
tribute something more than tho regu
lar fee and that tho bulletin, If It
prove worthy of It, may In time re
ceive some support from the university
