of the football committee, at tho li
brary and will be offered at above

Dr. White Returns.
Dr. White of the chemistry depart
ment, is back at the university after a
fourteen months' stay abroad. He re
turned to America in AuguBt and spent
the remainder of the summer visiting
friends in the east. The Bummer of
1901 was spent mainly In travel, tho
places visited being chiefly university
towns in Holland, Belgium, France and
Germany. Dr. White studied especially
the equipment and arrangement ol
laboratories at these institutions. In
the course of the summer he took a
three weeks' tramp In Switzerland and
afterward attended a six weeks' sum
mer school In the Ostwald laboratory
at Ielpslo. He then went to Zurich
and entered the Federal Polytechniual
Institute, where he attended lectures
under Professors Lorentz, Treadwell,
Bamberger, Constam and Werner. In
conjunction with Professor ConBtam ho
carried on Investigations upon the
physical chemical properties of bases
of tho pyridine group.
During tho second semester Dr.
White had charge of a class in physi
cal chemistry. The spring vacation of
1902 was spent among the museums and
other attractions of Italy. Including
thoBe of Naples and Milan.
A shipment of glassware has just
been received by the chemistry de
partment and was placed in the store
room In the main hall yesterday after
noon It came direct from Berlin nnd
is a very valuable lot of goods, worth
in value something over $4,100. The
glass came packed in seventeen boxes
and all In very good shape. A force of
men was at work the greater part of
the afternoon and getting it In out
of tho weather
Mr. Jay Barret of the Nebraska His
torical Society, received eight thous
and pounds of material from Brown
vile, Neb., yesterday, as a result of hlb
recent trips to that place. Tho mate
rial consisted largely of old books and
rare pamphlets relating to early Ne
braska history and was presented to
tho society by ex-Governor Robt W.
Marton Hlltncr, '98, Is spending a
week's vacation at his home In this
city. He'has been employed as chem

Deadwood, 8. D. Ho will return to
the same position after his few days'
New Professor in Medicine.
The new department of medicine haa
been extremely fortunate in obtaining
tho services of Dr. Ralph Llllle as In
structor In physiology. Dr. Lllllo is
another one of tho eostom men who
aro finding their way Into western in
stitutions of learning. Ho was grant
ed the degree of B. A. at the University
of Toronto, and a short time later ho
obtained the doctors degree In science
at the University of Chicago.
Since completing his student work
leading to degrees Dr. Llllle has been
engaged as instructor at the Marine
Biological Laboratory at Woods Holl,
Mass., at the University of Michigan
and at Harvard Medical School.
Registration still continues at tho
school of music. Two hundred stu
dents aro onrolled, and almost all of
them new students.
Only two rooms aro left In tho homo
department, where MIbs Carrie Barbour
continues aa precoptreBs. Miss Bar

facult , Is also on Instructor in tho
piano department. She is a pupil of
Ix-'schtllzky of Vienna.
Mr. Randolph, who resigned last
spring, is teaching In New York City.
The campus in general has been one
of the most beautiful spots about the
city during the suminer. The decora
tive beds of plants were the moBt
marked Improvement and did much to
increase tho general appearance at
A new walk has been laid In front
of the chemistry building.
Until a new commandant arrives at
the university Major Burke M. Hall
of the cadet battalion will be acting
commanding officer. He will be In
charge of tho organization of the bat
talion and will attend to business con
nected with the department.

one of the fellows in Botany for the

STUDENTS ARE SLOW
Registration of Last Years Third
Day Ahead Suggested Cause
of Light Matriculation
Tho same continuous lino of students
passed before tho desks of the register
ing clerks all day yesterday. Tho work
Is being minimized and abridged as
carefully as possible and Is therefore
dispatched with little confusion. The
organization of the new office force
and tho new way of registering Is due
In most part to the untiring ofTor.ts of
Mr. 8hedd, tho registrar.
Tho comparative results of this and
last year's registration on tho third
day Ib ns follows:
Matriculations 304 28G
3rd day's matriculations 102 93
Registrations 673 597
3rd day's registrations 331 309
It will be observed that the num
bers of the two years in comparison
shovr a slight advantage with last year.
Tho students arc either slow about
registering or will not come up to the
mark in point of attendance with last
year. It Is reported that tho largest
percentage of new studonts Is from the
city schools. It seems that Blnco the
advertlsomcnt of the increased en
trance requirements there Is more hes
itation about entering tho university
from those districts whero tnoro are
not fully accredited high schools. Pre
vious to registration week the indica
tions pointed to the largest attendance
In the history of the university, but re
sults during the last three days aro be
ginning to cast a different light on the
real stato of affairs.
Tho law school registration must also
be account for as it is for tho first
time opened to registration with the
regular academic students. Flfty-Bix
registration cards have been Issued by
Dean Reese up to the present time. As
the lawyers have not registered so
early heretofore some slight delay may
easily be accounted for In that depart
ment. Course in Foresty.
In answer to a number of inquiries,
it may be stated authoritatively that
ordinary graduates of tho general
scientific and the biological groups can
complete the course In forestry after
two additional years of study. By
judicious selection of subjects for
election the students in the general
scientific group can secure the forestry
degree one year abter obtaining his
degree of Bachelor of Science. It is
the Intention of the faculty to allow
a few necessary substitutions of studies
for tho benefit of graduates who wish
to enter the work in forestry. The.de
mand for trained men Is so great that
it is desirablo to meet It as early as
