WAR OPENS ON
TECHNICAL SCHOOL
Graduates of University of Cali=
fornia to Oppose Throop
Appropriation
" A meeting of the" graduates of .the
University of California was held last
night* in their clubrooms atiGeary and
Stockton, streets to prepare for a fur
ther campaign, agalust the bill before
the legislature t<> create, a. new state
technlacl school at Pasadena. The op
position of the men from the college at
, Berkeley Is .based i upon 1 the considera
tion that the bill marks.. the beginning
of an ; endeavor, to' establish "a second
stater university, i■„ The,; result,* it is
stated, : will be tho duplication :of work
and the scattering of available funds.
Those present at the gathering de
cided to inaugurate a telegraphic cam
paign. Messages will hf sent to the
members of the legislature, urging
them to defeat the bill. A committee
will go to Sacramento today and re
main on the grovind until the vote is
t»ken Thursday afternoon.
(OWEI.I. PRESIDES ,
r E. V. Cowell of the class of '81 pre
j sided at the meeting. Til contentions
1 of the advocates of the Dill were pre
sented by J. M. Willard, a graduate of
I the university, now a resident of Los
1 Angeles. He was followed by Guv, C.
j Earl of the clasa of 'BT,. who pointed
i out the dangers involved in the
! passage of the measure.
Ear) urged that the most effective
I work in the department of higher edu-
I cation could be accomplished .only by
I concentration. A diffusion of available
I funds, hje said, must tend to lower
I standards.
"The plan such as this bill proposes,"
he said, '"would give the state'event
ually two universities of the second or
third class. I,et us proceed as we have
begun and have one university of the
first class."
UTES EXAMPLES
The speaker cited certain of the
eastern states which had spread their
appropriations for higher education
over several institutions with disas
trous consequences. Where the great
state universities exist, they had been
built up and developed, said Earl,
through the definite policy of concen
tration.
A. E. Graupner. president of the
University of California club, also
spoke of the menace to the state's
highest educational institution.
Among those who participated in the
meeting were: Former Mayor Edward

COLLEGE HEADS
DEPLORE WASTE
Presidents of Universities
Condemn the Proposed
Division
BKRKP2LKY. March 7. —Foremost edu
cators of America are sending dozens
of telegrams to Doctor Wheeler, presi
dent of the University pf California, re
gretting the introduction o\ a bill in
the California legislature for the estab
lishment of the Throop Institute' in
southern California. A dozen univer
sity presidents explain the folly of set
ting up an engineering school in this
state, and deans of engineering schools
throughout the country have voiced
similar sentiments.
The telegrams declared that should
a rival university be established in this
state, as the Throop bill proposes, the
cost of maintenance of the other de
' partments of the university will be in
creased from 25 to T.O percent. H will
also deprive engineering Jfudents Irom
pursuing work in the culture depart
ments which under the precisions of
the proposed bill will be carried on in
another section of the state.
VIEWS OF KDICATORS
Here, in part, are some of the tele
graphed views upon the question of
university division as opposed to cen
tralization:
President Nicholas Murray Butler of
Columbia university—Earnestly hep*
Californfa.will not surrender its pres
tige and educational leadership by di
viding state support between different
and widely separated Institutions.
American experience clearly proves
wisdom of policy of educational concen
tration in state university.
President Arthur Twining Hadley of
Yale university—Am confident best can
be obtained by centralizing control of
higher education, technological as well
as scientific, and literary, in single state.
university. Separate polytechnic school
means waste of money, lack of coordi
nation of teaching force, and fails to
secure results.
President *A,JLawrence Lowell of Har
yard university—Experience: has shown
clearly, that where the state, supported
one Institution .of | higher /education 1 it
usually became -"exceedingly/ strong;
where, it supported severaKthey usually
became * rivals, ■ duplicated "work, and
were; weak.
President Harry Pratt Judson of the
University of Chicago—ln my opinion,
best success has been reached by states
uniting rather than scattering their re
sources —Wisconsin and Minnesota Il
lustrate.
KESISTAXCE ADVISKD
President elect Georffa P. Vincent of
(be University of Minnesota —Decen-
tralization of state university to be de
plored an<i resisted on ground of edu
pational efficiency, state unity, and gen
eral public policy. Separation means
wasteful duplication unfortunate ri
valry, and sectional antagonism.
President Charles R. Van Hlse of the
University gf Wisconsin —The policy of
subdividing state support for university
•education among two or more institu
tions seems to me unsound both from
the point of view of efficiency, of the
expenditure of money, and from that of
excellence of the education furnished.
President Edmund Si .Tames of the !
University of Tllinois: "The people of
California would make a grave mistake
at this juncture if tftey began the pol
icy of OisintCCratinS their state univer
sity, Jt is becoming one of the great
universities of the world. Anything
whiclj would prevent its keeping up its
present pace would be a loss to Cali
fornia, the nation and the world."
President H. Avery of tlie University
Of Nebraska: "The proposed action on
the part of the state of California would
he almost a national calamity. For the
sake of the. influence of the states where
strong state universities exist, I hope
you will resist to the utmost such ju
policy of subdivision, duplication and
waste."

than separation."
President A. Ross Hill of the Univer
sity of Missouri: "Division of state
higher education increases expense
enormously through duplication of
teachers, plant and equipment, and
[ weakens and lowers ideals and efficiency
from latk of scientific spirit in remote
departments and competition between
departments."
Commissioner E. E. Brown of the
United States department of education
and president of the Carnegie founda
tion for the advancement of science:
"Two dangers are present when a state
sets up more than one institution of
higher education; first, the division of
interest prevents either one from get
ting adequate support: secondly, their
competition laads eventually to placing
all under a board of financial control.
This arrangement, now on trial in sev
eral states, does not promise well."
Dr. John C. Bowman of the Carnegie
foundation, telegraphing for President
Henry S. Pritchett, says: "Doctor
Prltchett authorizes me to say that du
plication of state institutions has in
variably led in other states to harmful
rivalry and educational waste."

When you take food into a stomach

gest it properly. So the food becomes
sour and at once; begins; to throw oft -
gases.\ Your stomach becomes Inflated ■'
just as surely as if you attached T a toy ';
balloon to a. gas i jet. ' Then the gases ■
and foul odors "Issue forth and pollute .'
your 'breath;' making you an object. of "'
nausea -to your friends. Your' tongua '
quickly . becomes coated and you can '
taste, the foulness that is within you.
• Now. all this - condftlon is changed
almost' instantly by a Stuart's Dys- i
pepsia Tablet. This little digester Rots
busy at' supplies all the digest
ive * Juices *. that 'were lacking—digests
the food in a Jiffy and opens up the *;
clogged stomach and bowels. It -also '
sweetens and refreshes the mucous lin
ing of the stomach and ;bowels and' re
stores peace and content. '
If you will give Stuart's Dyspepsia.^
Tablets a chance' they ; will not 'only'^
sweeten • your stomach '.but also your*.,
disposition and you will never have
another stomach ill. V
:■ One grain of a single ingredient . in I
