New Apartments Being Erected by
Henry Herold on North Fifth
Street, a Big Asset to the City
From Saturday's Daily.
The apartment house that is being
prepared oy Henry Herold on North
Fifth street is now rapidly nearing
completion, and by the first of Octo
ber it is hoped to have the building
ready to occupy and the lease hold
ers can be accommodated in their
The apartment house is being ar
ranged from the former residence
f Dr. John Black, one of the pioneer
residents of this county, and the
building has for years been empty
a greater part of the time as its size
made It unsuitable as a residence
for an ordinary family, until finally
Mr. Harold recognizing the need of
the city for more housing room for
the growing population decided to
have the building remodeled and
made into an apartment house.
There are three floors to the
building and on each floor two apart
ments ire planned. On the ground
floor there are two four room apart
ments, all large and well arranged
rooms and each apartment is provid
ed with toilet rooms and bath. The
entrance to the ground floor of the
building will be changed from the
s)uth as at present to the east and
west and the occupants of the two
apartments will have individual en
trances, neat and attractive porches
being provided at each entrance.
On the second floor there is a flight
of ornamental steps leading to the
south porch where the entrance way
leads into a large and attractively
arranged hall and on either side of
which has been arranged the two
five room apartments, consisting of
living rcom and dining room, two
bedrooms, kitchen and bath. The
living room and dining room are
connected with collonades. The
kitchen will be equipped with fold
ing tabl?s while the pantry has cup
boards and cabinets built in that
will be a great pleasure to the ladies
that preside over these apartments.
The third floor will consist of two,
three-room apartments, all of which
will be of good size and well ar
ranged for the comfort of the per
sons leasing them. On the north of
the building a large porch will be
built that will be a pleasant spot
to the residents of the second and
The exterior of the building is be
ing stuccoed and when completed
will be one of the most attractive
buildings in that portion of the city.
New windows will be placed in the
third floor of the building and
throughout it will be made strictly
modern. The house is to be' heated
by hot water furnace and provided
with electric lights and water and
being one of the best constructed
buildings in the city will make a
pleasant home for the residents.
Certainly the building is helping
fill a long felt want and it is to be
hoped that other property owners
will follow the lead of Mr. Herold In
fitting out an apartment house.

STUDENTS CAN ALL
BE HOUSED SAFELY
Plenty of Places Listed, But Some
Farther Out Than Students
From Saturday rair.
In spite of rumors to the contrary,
university of Nebraska people believe
that adequate living accommodations
can be provided for the hosts of young
people who will swarm in Lincoln
next week to enter upon a course of
higher education. According to
Chancellor Avery housing conditions
should be at least as good as last
year, if not a little improved, owing
to the provision for 160 girls In the
The dean of women. Miss Amanda
Heppner, believes all girls who at
tend the university this fall can be
easily placed, but not all in homes
as near the university as they may
desire. Most of the space in the
dormitories, has already been assign
ed to prospective freshmen girls, for
whoYn the buildings are Intended. It
is thought that students of the older
classes can more easily arrange for
themselves. Last year, according to
Miss Heppner. the university had an
enrollment of about 3,500 girls. One
third of these belonged in Lincoln,
about four hundred lived in sorority
houses ,nd the remainder lived in
boarding houses or with friends. The
expectation is that the number will
he about the same this season, and
that outside the dormitories and so
rority houses, places for not more
than 500 will need to be found. Al
ready several hundred girls, besides
those to be housed in the dormitories,
have been found suitable rooms and a
lengthy list of available rooming
places still remains. Miss Heppner's
list is made up of addresses 'phoned
'n resnonse to advertisement, with
the addition of some gathered by the
Y. M. C. A. jfi making a canvass of
the city. Wliere a preference was
expressed for women, the names were
handed to Miss Heppner. Two as
sistants of Miss Heppner called uo
Wednesday all the addresses listed.
In order to make certain that the
rooms were still available.
Miss Heppner states that women
students like to live near the campus
where they can run home between
classes. "There are plenty of rooms
for them to live under conditions re
quired by university rules, but some
will be obliged to live In the resi
dence districts away from the im
mediate vicinity of the university,"
At the university Y. M. C. A. Fri
day, the statement was made that
less than fifty men had applied for
quarters as yet and that a list of over
600 available places was ready now.

The address delivered at the court
