the companies should continue to pay
the 10-cent fee, but the surplus, after
the expenses of the actual inspection

laboratory from the control of the

jurisdiction of the university regents,

much discussion ui the house today.
Many members opposed the bill be

proper thing to put the university in
control of so many activities of the

cost the state anything.
The idea of getting something for
nothing struck the house in such a
favorable light that the hill was rec
ommended for passage by a practic

The house slipped a cog on the
something for nothing idea the next
move and recommended a raise to
'supreme court stenographers from
$1,000 a year to $1,200 a year. An at
tempt was made by Dr. Hoffmeister
to show that the job of supreme court
stenographer was not so much of a
