A Low Salary Limit at Minnesota State
Institution Has Long Caused Grave
Concern Which the Pension Plan May
AggravateAthletics a Big Factor
in Selection of Colleges.
Minnesota must pay her university
professors better or eventually lose some
of them to smaller institutions not
under state control.
This is one of the first developments
to be predicted as a result of the Car
For many years conditions have been
growing up in both the state univer
sity and the smaller colleges that have
caused grave concern. In the first
case the university, beinpt under state
control, has been subject to a some
what oppressive policy of economy
enforced by men who were more likely
to be politicians than educators. This
has made it difficult to change the
schedule of salaries as the institution
grew in importance and raised its
standards. The inevitable lesult has
been that the university authorities
have been apprehensive over their
ability to secure and keep men of the
desired ability who would be better
On the other hand, the independent
collegesmostly founded as denomina
tional schoolshave been gravely con
cerned over a falling off in attend
ance. In competition with state uni
versities where the athletic interest is
strong, the smaller colleges have suf
fered. New students prefer to matric
ulate where they can yell for a winner.
Moreover the curricula of the state
universities are more varied. For the
most part the small institutions are
meagerly endowed and a decrease in
enrollment eventually means financial
embarrassment and inability to secure
high grade talent as faculty vacancies
That the Carnegie Foundation, af
fording a yearly pension of $1,000 to
the retired professor, will make the
smaller colleges more attractive to
teaching talent is the opinion of Pres
ident Cyrus Northrop.
"It is one of the noblest and most
useful gifts and will come as a great
relief to hundreds of professors in the
colleges," he said today. "It will do
a world of good relieving the anxiety
of a large number of excellent and val
uable men who have never been able
to accumulate enough money to take
care of them in their old age. Accord
ing to the provisions of the gift, state
universities and sectarian schools are
barred from receivings the benefits of
the fund. Such institutions as Har
vard and Yale will, however, be in
The only effect this will have on the
schools where the gift does not apply
will be that the men who are getting
no advance in salary will be drawn to
the institutions included under the
fund. It will make these institutions
more attractive and will enable the
teachers advanced in years to retire
on $1,000 a year."

New York Sun Special Service.
Philadelphia, April 29."I don't
know anything more about Andrew Car

able to continue in active service than
what I have read, but I don't like it,"
said Dr. John Bach McMaster, profes

sity of Pennsylvania, and one of the
best-known historians in the country.
"We have Carnegie libraries, Carnegie
heroes, and now Carnegie professors.
I don't believe in this scattering of
libraries over the country, as Mr. Car
egie has been doing in the last few
years. It is not a good thing, and I
don't like Mr. Carnegie's methods. In
the first place, I do not believe in pen
sion systems in general, and I am espe
cially opposed to them in the teaching
profession. It would be virtually the
same thing as the police pensioning, and
it surely would lower the profession.
When one of us enters that profession
we do not do it with the expectation of
making money we have an entirely
different end in view. This pension sys
tem would lower our standard. I be
lieve that in this and in all professions,
as in business, each man should stand
on his own basis, and on that alone.
Personally, I would not accept such a

North Side People Propose One at End

It was decided to form a ladies'

Alderman Frank H. Castner stirred
up the council last evening by attempt
ing to recall the resolution reimbursing
Alderman Claus Mumm for his ex
penses in defending the contest by
Orvar G. RoSing, last fall. Mr.
Castner was virtuously indignant, also
aggressive, and after approaching the
subject from three or four different di
rections and being regularly turned
down by President A. E. Merrill, he had
created an unusual disturbance. Mr.
Castner declared that the council had
no right to vote away the people's
money for the individual benefit of the
aldermen and wanted the former action
rescinded. Alderman G. A. Westphal
made the point of order that there
could be no reconsideration, as there
were not as many aldermen present as
when the original resolution was
passed, and the point was sustained.
Mr. Castner tartly replied that he
was not making a motion to reconsider
a vote, but to rescind an illegal action.

Rough Granite Blocks to Be Replaced

Central avenue will be repaved this

stretches are now laid with granite
blocks, and are probably the roughest

Help! Police! Take him away!"
Fearing some tragedy they rushed to
the scene on foot, horseback, and in
autos. Everything seemed in per
fect order, and when inquiry was made
to the manager, it was explained as
"only a little horseplay."
One of the efirls, told, the story later
on. A huge gray horse escaped from the
Barret & Zimmerman barns and tore
down the street until it reached the
wide doors of the exchange. Here if
turned into the room devoted to the
"hello" girls. The girls paid no at
tention until the visitor blew a terrific
blast down the neck of the girl on the
end of the line.
Then' the uproar began. It would
be hard to say whjch was the more
frightened, the horse or the girls. Some
with amazon tendencies seized hat
pins* and waved them frantically.
Some of the more timid tried to crawl
inside the switchboard. With a wild
snort the horse pranced thru the room
and burst out of another door which
led to the street and with a crash dis
