I prefer not to with draw my resignation, for I am sin cerely anxious for personal and fam ily reasons to be relieved of the cares of the presidency, as soon as, in your judgment, I can do so without em barrassing the Institution but in view of the earnestly expressed request which has come to me from your honorable body, from imy united fac ulty, from the alumni association of the university, and as well as from scores of alumnuses and alumnae in dividually, I am willing to yield to your Judgment. I am impelled to this decision by the single consideration, dwelt upon in almost every one of the letters received urging me to a recon sideration of my determination to re sign the presidency at this time—that, in going now I should add to the em barrassment of the university, already embarrassed by the recent reappor tionment of the mill tax, and that, at this particular juncture, in view of my connection with the institution from its opening day and consequent inti mate knowledge of Its needs, I can, perhaps, better than a new and un tried hand at the wheel, guide the university through its present dlffl culties. V^ry respectfully yours, —Webster Merrifleld. The above letter was sent to the board of regents of the state univer sity today, and Is self explanatory. It is a reply to a resolution passed by DR.

"Men are not so particular about having new Easter bonnets and clothes as women are," said H. A. Jacques of New York to an Evening Times man at the Dacotah today. "There are a good many of the sterner sex, however, especially in the east, who insist upon blossoming forth in new attire on Easter Sunday, and they think it necessary to get a new hat whether there has been a change In the style or not, regardless of the number of old ones they may have on hand. Of course, the hatters usually to it that there is a change in 6tyle. "But tihe proportion of men who are thus particular in this regard is very insignificant when compared with the number of women who have no tions along the same line. To the average woman it seems almost a case of necessity that she have at least a new hat, and usually she has to have a lot of new clothes to go with it. "Harmony is the basis of the ap pearance of the well-dressed man this spring. It takes a lot more time and trouble to suit a° man who demands that all his cravats, socks and hand kerchiefs shall correspond with each other, and with the clothes he has on, or intends to have on, than it does to look after one who does not con sider tile effect Consequently the tailor and haberdasher is working harder this spring than he usually does. "It is hard these days to draw a line between the man who is well dressed and the man who is not well dressed. So much depends upon the man, and there are so many varia tions of style in clothes to draw from. The expensive tailor who.makes clothes for men of conservative taste throws up his 'hands in despair at the models that are sent out from the exclusive New York houses. The influence of what are called 'students'' clothes is strong this spring. Cuts run to the extreme. How the average woman does en joy seeing some otlier woman get it in the neck.
