Thin rule was adopted last sprlwr by the
Hoard of Regents In order to systematise
the finances of the university and protect
prof"sois from sccu.-atlun o misuse of
funds or civerchai glng students for books
It has been the custom up to the present
time for professors In whose departments
a large amount of mimeographed work I
reqred to charge a small fee each semes
ter for th! service. Hy giving out these
mimeographed sheets the students Tver
accommodated with the official papers at
a nominal cost.
Other professors collected small amounts
from students for purchasing books to be
umiI In a special library, the Idea being to
have a few books whera they could be se
cured by the whole class wl'hout having
each member buy an Individual bonk. Often
this plan saved the student from havinc a

t sable to Satisfy Coart 1st Alfalfa
YORK. Neb., Oct. i (Special In the
case of State of Nebraska against George
Stryker. formerly of York, now a resident
of North Plett. Neb., an alfalfa mill pro
moter, and Samuel C. Nelson, formerly of
Grand Island, a. resident of Kansas City,
engaged In the promotion and building of
alfalfa mills, charged by the Tork Alfalfa
Meal and Milling company with embezzle
ment of several thousand dollars, was tried
before the county court. Eight months ago
George Pttyker came to Tork, calling on
old acquaintances, and representing to them
that he had the backing of a strong finan
cial Institution then with headquarters at
Omaha, and later at Kansas City, who
were financing and building alfalfa mills
at different points in Kansas and Nebraska.
Tork was one of the good points for an
alfalfa mill, and it was not much trouble
to Interest farmers and business men, who
subscribed for stock, paying cash, which
they claim has disappeared and nothing to
show for It. The evidence given In the
trial was that something like 17.000 worth
of stock In the Tork Alfalfa Meal and Mill
ing company was disposed of, and that at
the present time there ts about $700 In the
treasury and no alfalfa mill at Tork. The
promotion company was represented on the
board of officials of the Tork Alfalfa Meal
and Milling company by having Samuel C.
Nelson elected treasurer, and when the
Kansas City officers on the witness stand
were asked what become of the money,
they replied that It was spent, but did not
give sufficient testimony to Justify County
Judge Wray to think that the money was
rightfully appropriated or spent for the
benefit of the local company, and both
Stryker and Nelson were bound over to the
next term of district court under $5,000

Tho regents decided that, although the
books and supplies were necessary. a
better plan would have to be devised for
furnishing the students with anything that
was necessary. They felt that soma pro
fessor sooner or later would be charged
with grafting funds and they took steps
to prevent this hy requiring all sums to
go to the treasurer.

The Barber Asphalt company, the Na

Ford. Flynn McLaughlin and Robert
Malone are among the number who will
not bid on work which the city and prop
erty owners want done. Some time ago
they were notified of the A street paving
project, calling for about 8,009 square yards
of pavement, but none of them made fig
ures on It for the reason, as stated, that
it was too small a Job to be worth their
while. A street was then grouped with
two or three other districts and readver
tlfed. the whole amount being 24.000 yards,
estimated to be worth $55,000. On this
larger piece of work the firms and Indi
vidual contractors again neglected to bid.
They have virtually given notice that they
will do nothing for the city until next
spring. Malone has Intimated that he will
never bid on city work again.
