Program Committee MiBses Edith building for tho geologist, although people havo been accustomed to regard our Btate as of little geological value, while they look to the Rockies, the regions of the Great Lakes and the New England states as the only appropriate places to study history as recorded by naturo herself, yet Nebraska, with its broad prairies and rolling foothills, Is geolog ically Just as important, from many points of view, as are the mountainous states. A lack of appreciation for our native advantages has como about, no doubt becauso no geological surveys have ever been made of the state, and consequently little is gonerally known about what our environments really are. Since 18H, however, a survey has been carried forward by the state geologist, Professor Barbour. Since tho work has had to done without sal ary, oftontlmea at a personal outlay, progress has necessarily been slow. In spite of the great difficulties that had to be "overcome tho first survey of the state has been completed and a report of the same is contracted to appear on March 15th. While the re port can not glvo definite figures and a full description of very mile in the state, it will still be very complete, considering the time and money spent in making the survey. Nearly every county has been visited, and some of them many times. Many of the most interesting portions have actually been driven over by team and surveyed by the mllo. Tho hydrography of Nebraska has been studied by both the engineering and geological departments. Thousands of records of wells and streams havo been secured, and gaugoings of all the Important rivers have boon made to ascertain the available water supply at various seasons of tho year. Every important quarry, clay pit, sand pit, and gravel bank has been vlBited, mea sured and photographed. Such re sources as our supply of sand, gravel, and clay may seem of small Import ance to the unthinking person; but, as a mattor of fact, tho real value of these materials can not Tie estimated. Enor- mouB amounts of clay, sand, lime and stone are already being Lathrop, Chairman; Eliza Meier, Mar garet Loomis, Anna Miles; MeBsfs. George F. Miles, Fred Llpp, ' Edward Rowe, R. T. Hill, Wm.

In the matter of sand Nebraska puts out epough caoh year to make a solid train reaching from Lincoln to Omaha; and of flint, which up to the present year Was a waste product, largo quantities are now being used as ballast. The flint quar ry, located at Wymoro, were opened by Atwood & Co. last year and the first order amounted to 50,000 tons. Al though Nebraska Is a prairie state, it Is not lacking' In building materials. Stones, bricks, mortars, and cements havo, been tested as. to strength' and It is found that they compare 'favorably with those of other states andin some cases they are '.even superior. The "-report will "be illustrated by logs and colored map. Financial- in terests and Industrial opportunities havo boon carefully looked after by Professor Barbour in getting out tho book, for tho ultimate aim of tho sur vey is to loarn where and how tho state can be developed industrially. The report is made non-technical, so that the farmer as well as the scientific man can understand it and make use of its suggestions. Tho survoy reveals a rich diversity of scenery, much of which is beautiful. Topographically the state Is made up of broken ranges, canyons, buttes and in the western part, low mountains or foothillB. Tho lowest part is tho -Missouri bottom, the altitude of which Is about 810 feet. -From this tho state rises at an average of about eight or ten foot to tho mile until tho western limit 1b reached. Nebraska, without mountain ranges and forest, has a homeogenous climate. Its precipitation comes largely from the Gulf of Mexico, and is much moro favorable than is generally supposed, tho annual rairt fall being over twenty-threo Inches. This amount does not sem great com pared with that of many other states, but the fact that a largo percentage of it comes during tho spring and sum mer gives Nebraska as good a growing season as exists along the Atlantic coast. A noticeable feature of Nobraska Is Its favorable situation with reforenco to storm centers, which accounts for the rare viBits of tornadoed. The aver age annuhl temperature of the state ranges from 40 to 60 degrees. Tho report takes up a somowhat lengthy discussion of the waterfalls of tho state, which oven our own people are accustomed to give no attention. They praise tho beauties of other states but do not realize that Nebraska la really picturesque. Along tho Fremont line, in the northern part of the state, the scenery Is beautiful. About Val entino are several excellent locations for summer resorts. Tho scenery is bold and well forested with evergreens. Plenty of oeautlful lakes are, situated there, but they are, under present con ditions, too Inaccessible to bo used. Tho best waterfalls in the state, tho Arlkeo falls, about twelve miles east of. Valentine, and with a fall of about elghty-rfl'vo feet, can be reached only by driving across the county. Tho survey also discuses tho fact that Nebraska Is not rich "in mineral deposits, although drift gold is. found in the sands "of the Platto and Iron, topper, zinc, lead, and coar,;have been found In small, quantities'. Themlrier'al wealth of the slate lies ra'thVr-iif'lts hon-metalllc beds; Tvhjch are 'rich hnd extensive. 4 " Class Qame Tonight. Tho juniors and sophomores opon tho class series of basket ball games to night with a gamo in the" armory. Both teams- havo made preparations for this contest, whiclr promises to be aa In teresting one. These two class teams are considered tho strongest and tho outcomo tonight will probably deter mine which class carries off tho cham pionship honors of '03. Tho sopohmoros and juniors will likely attend in a body. Ten cents admission will bo charged to defray oxtm janitor fcos. If tho gato recelptB of theso clas gameB aro sufficient, caps will bo purchased for tho championship team. Tlckots can bo secured from members of tho teams and classes or at tho door.

Tho juniors met In IT. 206 yesterday during convocation hour. As a quorum was not present no business was trans acted. Tho half hour was spent in stir ring up interest and enthusiasm in to night's basket ball game. Mossrs. Buck ner, Tobln, Newton, Blckford, Myers and Misses King, Meeker, Shinbur and others wero called on far speeches, and all responded In well chosen words. A committee was appointed to make ar rangements for tho class to attend in a body and get as many juniors out as possible. The chairman of (his "com mittee will act as Jeader of tho rooters', squad for tonight Tho juniors expect a good representation to witness .the gamo, and the team will no doubt re-, celve tho proper support from the sldo lines. A number of new volumes have- been added to tho library shelves for the benefit of the American history de partment These consist of McMastor'a history In five volumes, Von Hoist's In eight volumes, and tho works of Alex ander Hamilton In seven volumes. Tho latter set Is an exceedingly rare one and was obtained with great difficulty, being finally secured from a 2nd-hand bpok dealer in Chicago. The former, two sets are a welcome addition to tho American history shelves, as they will relieve the pressure by furnishing ad ditional reference books for the larger classes. , . . .
