( Nebraska. TRY TO PREJUDICE FARMERS Lincoln Papers Throw Fits About University Eemoval Idea. MAKE FALSE STATEMENTS It In Allraeil thnt All Uonntonn UnllillnRn Will lie I. out and (bat All fit Farm lint Three Will lie Kemovrtt. (From a Staff Correspondent.) MNCOLN, Jan. 21.-(Speclal.)-,lncoln papers have been throwing catnip fits the past two weeka for fear that when the meetings of organized agriculture were held this week In this city someone would attempt to Influence thoso In at tendance In favor of moving the state university out to the stato farm. They liopcd and prayed that the proposition would not be forced upon the visitors ind that they would bo allowed to look the situation over calmly and no one liUtt In and attempt to prejudice them in any way when they looked over the two propositions of university extension. But now that the visitors aro hero ono sheet Is full of double-dlstllled headllnera. in- .Btructlng the farmers how they should vote on the proposition and giving1 them to understand that to move the uni versity to the farm would be a great loss financially to the state. Proposition ! Mlmrrnreiienteil. Not only Is this paper attempting to in- Jluenco the visitor how he should vote. but it is not above misrepresenting the proposition In its frantic efforts to save the Institution as a prey for the business Interests of the city. In Its issue last night it had the audacity to say that to move the university to the state farm would mean a sacrifice to the state of all the buildings now upon the present campus and also every building but three at tho state farm would be de stroyed to "carry out the verv elaborate Bcheme of new university development mere." Just why any Lincoln paper should take advantage of visitors to tho city and flaunt In their faces such statements Is Jiard to understand and much comment was heard last night about the matter, come visitors going so far as to say that they were tired of coming to Lincoln and having the papers try to show them what they ought to do when they get home. The fact of tho matter Is that the present buildings on the down town campus will not bo lost to tho state In tho case of removal to tho state farm. Just why business interests of Lincoln cannot see beyond their noses Is hard to understand. The present plan of the Com mercial club to build up In Nebraska's capital city a wholesale and manu facturing center for this section of the country could not be better carried out than by a removal of the university to the stato farm and the vacation of the present buildings, nearly all of which would make Ideal places for either whole wale or manufacturing plants, yery re cently a large manufacturing plant em ploying 700 people was compelled to take ft downtown, building because It could ,not. find a suitable - building elsewhere. jiHaa the university buildings been vacant any one of eight buildings there would ihave been ideal for its use and with the - Iieatlng plant already Installed the whole Broup of buildings could be ised suc cessfully. A No Plan for Destruction. The statement Tthlchl s openly crltlolseoj -the most was the ono made, that bulld .inge at the farm would be destroyed to make room for the very "elaborate .scheme there for university extension." Thetruth is that thero is no adopted plan for extension on tho farm. 'Lots of pcoplo have made plans, but none of them has been adopted made to mako visitors bellevo that there Is any "elaborate" plan arranged for Is wholly wrong. Plans have been drawn contemplating several mothods and even this Lincoln paper published a plan some time, ago for extension and erection of mew buildings on the downtown campus to cost tho people of the state H.000,000 The one thing which should be borne In mind by everybody Interested in uni versity removal Is that new buildings will have to be built on the six blocks purchased by tho stato for the down town campus Just the same as there will Iiuvo to bo new buildings built at the btate farm it the university goes there. Jt Is a proposition of tweedle-dee and twcedlerdum, the balance, if any being in favor of moving the university to the" farm and then disposing of the present Property downtown, which, according to the Lincoln paper, tho building alone are worth J959 KO. and surely would bring half that much.
