THE RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY

            The revenues of the University are derived from three sources. Of these, the principal one at present, is a tax of three-eighths of a mil upon each dollar of taxable property in the State. Next in importance is the revenue from land given to the University as an endowment by the State of Nebraska and the United States. The whole amount given was 136,080 acres, and with proper management it ought to become the chief source of revenue. Matriculation fees form the third source of revenue, insignificant in amount as compared with other sources. The financial statements are published biennially, and the latest one accessible is for two years ending with 18845. This shows an aggregate biennial income of $107,384.52. Nearly two-thirds of this was yielded by the State tax, one-third was income from lands, and a small amount was from matriculations fees paid by students.
