Publicity Director in 1,700
Mile Autb Tour in Nebraska
Finds Crops in Good
(From a SUff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, May 25. (Special.) Re
turning from a tour-of 1,700 miles by
rail and auto, covering nineteen coun
ties in central and wasternand north-
' western Nebraska, Will Maupin, di
rector of the Department of Publicity,
reports that he has been rained on in
each one of the nineteen counties,
With the exception of a small sec
tion, comparatively, in the central
eastern division, the wheat crop is
looking unusually fine. And the rains
of the last few days will be of in
calculable benefit to the section that
has been suffering.
, "The 'Sandhill' region of Nebraska
is coming into its own," said the di
rector. "The sand hills have been soaked
time and again this spring, and as a
result the pastures are in .fine con
dition. Alfalfa never looked better,
and it is easy to see a constantly in
creasing acreage each year.
"I have seen no finer wheat than
the immense fields I saw in Box Butte
county Wednesday in a couple of
auto drives that permitted me to see
practically all of the wonderful table
in that county. I was with the dele
gates to the associated commercial
clubs convention at Alliance when
they drove to Antioch to see the
great potash plants there. It was a
revelation to most of them. Inci
dently Antioch now has a population
of 3,000 which is an increase of about
2,875 in less than three years.
"From personal observation and
from conversation with a great many
wheat growers and other, I am led
to believe that the government wheat
estimates for Nebraska are much too
"A most pleasing fact is the aooar-
ent increase in the number of cattle in
the great grazing sections and the
noticeable improvement in the breeds
"It was raining at Alliance at 6
o'clock Wednesday evening, raining
mere wnen my train lett at midnight,
and raining when I reached Lincoln
And there were evidences of rain all
along the road. We used to speak
of 'million dollar' rains in Nebraska.
but millions are small thinzs thes
days. Nebraska is enjoying half-bil-
non aonar rains this week.

stood that the public will not be ad
Names Are Withheld.
Dr. P. L.'Hall of Lincoln, suggest
ed the names of the accused should
be made public at this time, but after
Regent Landish had called attention
to the fact that earlier in the day the
council had sought to withdraw its
charges against one professor, A. J.
Schrab, it was decided that this
should not be done.
Chairman Brown, of the reeents.
called attention to the fact that the
council complaint was defective in
that, signatures of all the members
had been typed instead of penned.
He urged a speedy action but said
that the professors should be given
an opportunity to defend themselves.
Telegrams From Averv.
Two telegrams from Chancellor
Avery, engaged in war work at Wash
ington were, read. One expressed
willingness to appear before the
regents as a witness, while the other

cussion with remarks that yellow paint

for the faculty from the council
charges, but were not incorporated in
motion or resolution.
