THE UNIVERSITY STADIUM.
A Stadium dc.-igr.cd for comfort,
to piotcct the shoes of the alhictic
fan, and to allow a full view of the
entire playing field and running
track no matter in what part of tho
stand a spectator may be seated
that's the New Nebraska Memorial
Six months ago when the plans for
the new Stadium were first being
definitely drawn up, the Stadium
building committee remembered the
little things. It remembered the
many times excited fans stamp their
feet, it remembered the olscomfiture
of sitting with feet hanging straight
down and in accordance with these
remembrances it planned the Nebras
The seats in Nebraska's new Stadi
um are a definite improvement on
those in almost any otner Stadium
in the country. They will consist ot
three planks, each four Indies wide,
placed upon wooden blocks, whlcli pro
trude over the edge of the concrete
step so as to allow the spectators to
throw their feet slightly backward
rather than being forced to sit In a
straight stiff fashion. It also pro
tects the back of the shoes from rub
bing against the concrete seats.
No matter in what part o" the Sta
dium a spectator may toe seated he
will be able to see all of the playing
field, every corner of the running
track. The stands have been so "dish
ed" that every one of the more than
30,000 seats in the new athletic struc
tu re will afford a clear complete
view of the field.
START WORK ON BALCONY
Work on the last of the five sec
tions on the W'st stands has been
started now, and the contractors are
starting preliminary work on the bal
cony. The east stands are about one
half completed, and work on the last
three stands is fast progressing, the
center two being all poured with con
crete. In spite of the fact that the steam
shovel working on tre Stadium
grounds each day removes more than
700 cubic ynrds of dirt, and has been
removing that amount every day for
more than two months, there is still
a good slice of mother .earth to bo re
moved. The playing fields of the
now structure will be eight feet be
low tho surface of tho o.'d fieid and
00,000 cubic yards of dirt must bo
removed from the site to allow of
this level. Ten thousand cubic feet
of concrete will have been poured In
to the new Stadiun) when Uio 1923
football season opens.- This amount
