SALARY PROBLEM AT U. OF I.
String of Facts Showing Severe Competition to Get the Best
As the newspapers have given wide greatest value of the college of iig.'i-
imblicily to certain iPi ortu and Li.'.t
ences concerning salaries paid at the
state university and these are likely to
create a s-erior.s misapprehension of
facts, the Illinois farmers' institute be
lieves that a fuller statement should
go to the public. It was said the uni
versity is asking $l".t,CW) for increased
salaries. This is a mistake; it is only
$23,000 a year for two years. Much
culture dt peiids on the even and unit
ed development of all departments of
President James says the salaries
are ro far below those of other first
late insiitutioiis that "we are in co'V
tinual danger of losing out best men in
agriculture, engineering and science."
The average salary paid to full pn
fes.--ors at our university is $2,S31,
waa made of the fact that President i while similar salaries in the nniver-
James received a hi;h salary, but iu)
increase is wanted for him.
It was the decisive action of the
sities of Pennsylvania, Yale, Toronto,
Chicago, I.elar.d Stanford, . Columbia,
Harvard and the city of New Yo-lc
farmers' organizations that started the J average from- $3,.iK) to $4.7iS and the
r.vt rage ot these eight is nearly 40 per

Yassar J.nd Simmons colleges are
ahead of us. :

' This is just a short talk which we hope will be of interest and help
to you in selecting the tonic and blood purifier that will be of the. great
est value to you this Spring. . '
, -That this is the most trying of all seasons on the health is a fact
well known to us all. It is the time of year when our constitutions are
required to stand the greatest strain, and unless properly cared for the
foundation is often laid for physical disorders or disease later on. The
great-majority of persons are fast coming to realize the importance of
preventing disease. Health is our most valued possession, and its
preservation is a matter which vitally concerns every one.
Most persons, even those who are ordinarily strong and robust,
feel the necessity of a tonic and blood purifier at this season. Some
have rto particular ailment, but are weak, debilitated and run-down.
The Winter life, with its decreased amount of out-door exercise, and
the fact that the cold weather has kept the pores of the skin closed,
prevented the usual necessary amount of refuse and waste matter from
being carried out of the system. These impurities entering the circu
lation have weakened and thinned the blood, and this vital fluid is
therefore lacking in the nourishing properties necessary to sustain
and preserve systemic health, when warm, active Spring life begins.
The general bodily weakness, tired, worn-out feeling, fickle appe
tite, poor digestion, etc., show how weak and anaemic the blood has
become. Frequently skin diseases, pimples, eruptions, boils, etc., break
out on the skin, and this is evidence of the impurity of the circulation.
S. S. S. is the medicine needed to correct this condition, and is the
only one on which you can rely to supply the system with the best tonic
effects, and at the same time thoroughly purify the blood. The use of
S. S. S. at this time may save you from a long spell of sickness, and it
will certainly prepare you for the strain of the long, hot Summer.
Marty people h aYput off using
a tonic until the systD became
so weakened it could nCt,resist
disease, and have midfoiMfre,
neglect with a spell of fevet"S
niaiana, or some other trouble.
S. S. S. is Nature's ideal tonic
and blood purifier, made en
tirely of the pure extracts of
.healing, strengthening, health
giving roots and herbs. It tones
up the stomach and digestion
rids one of that tired, .workout feeling, improves the appetite and dic
tion and in every way contributes to the strengthening and building
u'c uuuc bysiem. b. b. i-is recognized everywhere as the
greatest of all blood purifiers, and Wife combined with its unequalled

was with colleges of agriculture, and
the university had 'a hard struggle to
get its salarier up 0 that other col
leges of agriculture would not take
our men way; before that it was hope
less for us to try to get men of any
prominence from a leading Institution.
Now Illinois had advanced into an
other class of institutions, the highest
elas of universities in reputation, and
can get strong men if it could pay foi
them. Harvard has 40 men who are
paid $3,000 or moref while Illinois has
only five professors who get as muc;h
as $4,000, and all of these serve ui
different capacities. -
Srort-H Offered' More HNewtfiere.
Dean Davenport's men in the college
of agriculture had 24 offers from other
institutions - at - increased salaries in
1907. I .. .. s
Professor Mumford,' head of the de
partment of animal husbandry, has
open to him a $5,000 proposition from
one of the leading institutions, to which
he could go any " day. Professor IJop
kins.at the head of. our great Boil
work, has just refused" to, consider a
$0,000 position in . one of the. greatest
universities. Professor Rankin, in
charge of agricultural extension, refus
ed an offer of $1,000 increase above
what he was getting here. The follow
ing, while getting 110 more than $1,500
or $1,800, received offers of $2,500
elsewhere: Mosier, Lee Coffey, Hume.
Hall and Pettit, and some of these
had two and three offers.
Every prominent man of the college
of agriculture has been offered an ad
vanced salary elsewhere, and some of
the increases offered have been $500
to $1,500. .:. ;
This condition is typical of the whole
university Three years ago it was
necessary to raise Professor Greene's
salary $1,0C0 to retain him in the col
lege of literature and arts. . Dr. Kin
ley, head of the graduate school, has
had several definite offers of positions
at higher salaries than he was getting
here. Professor Clark, dean of under
graduates, has just received a flatter
ing offer at a greatly advanced salary.
Professor Gainer, in political science
received an offer at a large advance to
go elsewhere, as did Dr. Grindley, who
s so prominently connected with nutri
tion investigations. Fortunately for
us, all these men remained because
they had confidence in. the university
and believed that better things were
ahead in the immediate future here
borne good men have gone else
where, notably Clifford Willis to South
Dakota; J. M. Truemon to Connecti
cut; Professor Hart to South America
at double his salary here; Professor
Lee to Wisconsin; Professor Drew to
Cornell at an advance of $1,000; Pro
fessor McGovney-to Louisiana; Profes
sor Hammond to Ohio. This list, like
the other, could be greatly extended to
cover other, depqrtments, showing a
condition which is typical of the wholo
unvierkity . "
. t Iiflieult to (Jet Men. ,
A man to teach agricultural econom
ics has been wanted for several years.
Only one has been-,foundk and he was
getting $5,000, and therefore beyond
reach. Four men have been picked
out- for professorships in classical
lines, hut salary enough could not be
offered.. Right no wthe university is
trying to take a man from a normal
school to teach agriculture in the pub
lic schools and it cannot pay the sal
ary of his class.
Private business is offering a new-
competition for instructors in law, ag
riculture, engineering and business.
An assistant in soils has twice refus
ed an advance of $:J,S00. A New York
city newspaper has just offered a man
in English $3,000, or $1,200 above his
tilail to Follow StroiiK Lender.
If strong men can be secured to head
the departments,' promising young in
structor will be glad to come to Illi
nois at moderate salaries, but not oth
erwise. For every leading position
there are a half dozen subordinate
The board of trustees and President
James are simply trying to get the
leading salaries on a basis where the
university can hold its own with other
institutions of like rank, and certainly
the people of the state will stand for
that when they know the facts. Illi

bushels per acre, oats average CO bush

The small fruits that have been grown
are very prolific and possess a fine
