Joins in Fight to
Keep C. A. Fulmer
While there is some talk of the
possibility that Chancellor Clark A.
Fulmer will not be with the Nebraska
Wcsleyan university long, some of
his friends and alumni of the school
are sending an appeal to the mem
bers of the board of trustees of the
college to retain him. A printed cir
cular is being sent obt, signed by
Ofan K. llowen. superintendent 01
city schools at Wayne, and Karl E.
Bowen, pastor Pearl Memorial Meth
odist church of Omaha.
The circular sets forth that Chan
cellor Fulmer is loved and respected
by all his students; that he is ad
mired by the alumni; that he is held
in esteem by the school men and
women of the state; that he is in touch
with the high schools of the state as
perhaps no one else; that he is recog
nized by the ministers as a great
Christian educator; that he is ranked
by the educators and members of the
faculties of the other universities as
a leader of remarkable ability; that
he has on various occasions been of
fered the presidencies of the Peru
and Kearney State normals, declining
both offers, thinking to serve his
church for years to come as chancel
lor of Wesleyan university; that he
has succeeded in doubling the at
tendance at Wesleyan in the last ten

exchange that reports from Missouri
and Kansas indicated that the winter

cold weather and a lack of moisture.
Immediately following the Chicago
report the May wheat option jumped
to $1.77 and the May corn option to
?l.Uo per bushel, iter the crop
damaae reports were partially con
tradicted and May wheat sagged to
$1.7354, later going up to fl.s. Lorn
in the meantime sold on to $i.uifc,

The accumulations of wheat over
the holiday aggregated 144 carloads
and on the whole the cash market was
a cent np, sales being made at $1.77
1.80. There was a strong demand
millers from the north being on the
market for large quantities.
Corn receipts were 181 carloads and
the sales were made at 95J96M

Experts from the East Here
To See Bertschy's Process
Harry Walker, steel expert of the
Joseph P. Ryerson company, Chicago,
is in Omaha seeing a demonstration
of the discovery of A. J. P. Bertschy
for making tool steel.
He expressed himself astounded at
the discovery and says it marks a new
epoch. The bertschy process pro
duces the exact steel required by gov
ernment specifications for bayonets
and also for armor plate, and pro
duces it at a very small fraction of
the cost hitherto.
Two other men were in the city
yesterday from the east to investi
gate the process, J hey saw, a twenty
penny hail turned into a cold chisel
of greatest hardness betorc their eyes.
