State Superintendent Bishop Is preparing
a bulletin advocating the consolidation of
country districts to form a graded high
school. In tho bulletin will be pictures of
such schools which Mr. Bishop visited In
Indiana In his recent trip to Indianapolis.
With the pictures Is one showing a van
In which the pupils are taken' to school.
The picture shows the wheels had gone
through mud up to the hubs.
One objection to the country high school
and the van for the children has been the
mud In the country roads, but Mr. Bishop
believes his picture will show that It Is
not as muddy tn Nebraska as It 1s In In
diana, and If the van can get along in
that state It can at least move along here.

St. Tatrlck's memory t today, and prac

law attended classes this morning.
At separate claas meetings yesterday all
the students of the college of law voted
to "sneak" away from school today and
spend the afternoon at Crete. Dean Hast

In their determination to go until the
juniors called a meeting late last night.
At that time the middle class agreed to
abandon the "skip" Oay arrangements.
This action broke the backbone of the
movement and Chancellor Avery then took
measures to warn every Individual law
student not to attempt to continue the con

messenger boys were kept busy In getting
out a circular letter to the 200 law stu

until nearly midnight, and after that hour
special messengers traveled over the city
leaving notices with each law student, so
that all members of the college would have
warning before 7 o'clock this morning. The
following la a :opy of the letter, which
was signed by Chancellor Avery and which
every law student received:

rosed "Law Bklp day" has been aban

Lest, however, notice of the abandoning
of the plan should fall to reach any of
the students of the college, I am sending

be spared the very unpleasant duty of In
definitely suspending from the university
