Th third bill covering university cam

with th guaranty given two yeara ago
by Lincoln business men that the cost to

W. J. Taylor's demand for Itemise ap
propriations all along the line and a
complete separation of th university
finances from those of th atate farm Is
thus-turned down, by the committee. It
Is understood that Mr. Taylor may make
another fight on the floor to Itemize th
appropriations-according to his Ideas. .

Taylor, but Included a proviso in the bill

ture,, th -university department of agri
culture, botany, entomology legislative,

Recommendation Is made . that an ef
ficiency agent bo employed by tho
regent to look after the business or
financial affair of th Institution. This
will practically relieve Secretary ' J.

there I no intention to supersede Mr.
Dales In his position. The committee be
lieved that th regent should secure a
thoroughly capable man as efficiency
agent and gtv him targe authority.
No appropriation whatever Is made for
the agricultural experiment station
at Culbortson and Valentine. On the
other hand the bill as amended by the
committee direct the regents to sell

In addition the committee provides for
