Acceptance or Rejection of Fund
Comes Up In Senate.
Austin, Feb. 15. Andrew Carnegie,
the retired steel magnate, was under
fire practically all Monday morning in
the senate. The question came up on
the resolution adopted by the board of
regents of the University of Texas that
the university make "application for
admission to all rights and privileges
of Carnegie foundation fund for pro
tecting teachers in their old age. This
resolution aroused a storm of protepf
In the senate, and charges of tainted
money were made and that Texas
should not accept any of it.
Final action on the resolution was
deferred until Tuesday morning.
Senator Terrell (of Bowie) offered
an amendment to resolution providing
that before any teacher can accept
the benefits of the fund that he shall
make affidavit that, he has never men
tioned Carnegie's name in his class
room or to any student, and further
that Carnegie's picture has never been
hung in a school that he has taught
since the adoption of this resolution.
Senator Terrell was opposed to reso
lution. He said Texas should not ac
cept any tainted money.
Senator Brachfield spoke against
the resolution, taking th position that
Texas Is able to take or of her
