When George reported for duty at
'the university, a severe jolt was felt
when it was revealed, that George was
not a university graduate at all, to say
nothing of being a university profes

/extension committee filed a protest
that George could not wr|te grammat

out to the school men of the state
were a disgrace to the university. On
account of the uncompromising, itand

was transferred at the end- of the year
