Most of the great universities of
the country are fortunato In pos
sessing for campus purposes, grounds
naturally beautiful and capable of al
most Indefinite Improvement. Our awn
university campus lacks any natural
features of beauty, and besides Is
cramped In area, Tho consequences
will be disastrous to our best future un
less the greatest caro Is taken, and tho
most far-sighted wlbdom displayed, In
present and future management- The
culture value of beautiful environment
will be loBt, and ultimately the growth
of the University retarded as com
pared with our rival schools unless we
make the most of our possibilities,
which are meagre at the best Some
universities, like Chicago for example,
can In part secure a compensation for
lack of natural beauty of grounds In
the architectural effects of their build
ings. Our university, however, lacks
the means to secure an effect In this
way. The buildings of the Immediate
future at least cannot fllll the aesthet
ic need, and unfortunately the campus
at present is half covered with hld
couBly ugly structures the library be
ing the only building that is architec
Just at this moment the location of
the two new buildings on the campus
makes the question a live one, for the
present decision will probably deter
mine the future of our campuB. Two
Ideas should be kept In mind: (1) con
venience, and (2) artistic and aesthetic
environment; and of the two, the lat
ter just now should weigh most, for no
arrangement can seriously discom
mode on a campus as small as ours Is,
and is likely to remain.
In regard to convenience, the decis
ion should be based on a few funda
mental considerations: (1) It Bhould
be "kept In mind that Nebraska is not
so poor, and its citizens are not bo nig
gardly In their attitude toward educa
raanently limited to lnts present con
manentl yllmitcd to Its present con
tracted campus, hence forced to plan as
If no expansion was to be possible.
(2) The city of Lincoln is destined to
grow toward the east and bouUi, hence
the great mass of the students will
move more and more to the east. ThlB'
will make the center of student life
ever lie east of 12th street With the
new "Temple" for social and .religious
purposes at R and 12th streets, that
corner becomes tho natural gathering
point. (3) Within a decade or two the
University will add to its building
grounds the two blockB Just east of the
present campus an event which will
make 12th street the center of the
campus. Naturally, therefore, for. the
above reasons the administration build
ing may most conveniently, for the
future, be located Just south of the
chemistry building, the chief point of
entrance to the University In the fu
ture, and perhaps even now. Then let
the physics building be erected on the
east side of the south entrance to bal
ance tho library building. This ar
rangement gives symmerty to the
grounds, and makes possible really
effective landBcane Gardening. In
course of years University hall the
present main building will be re
placed by one of architectural beauty.
The lawn in its front the extension
of 11th street may be made artistic
ally beautiful by a fountain In its cen
ter, with shrubs, "grass and trees skill
fully massed around It Is it not true
that here, only are there real possibil
ities of landscape effects?
No doubt every one connected with
the University is deeply anxious that
the best ' plans be adopted, so
no criticism is intenjded in atat
It that It seems to roe tho
location of the administration
building especially since it muBt be a
rather cheap building between the
walks at'the head of 11th street will be
a serlouB error. It will not be In the
moat convenient location for the near
future. It will cut off the view of the
interior ot the campus, and the
central building of the future. Finally,
It will destroy the only real chance on
the campus for a good piece of land
scape gardening. Shall tho aesthetic
be sacrificed so completely to the prac-

JAMES K. HACKETT
PRODUCES WINSTON CHURCHILL'S
A New Play Especially Prepared for the Stage, from
the Celebrated Novel by tho Author Himself.
MR. HACKETT AND HI8 ORIGINAL SUPPORTING
COMPANY, AND ELABORATE SCENERY,
The production of Winston Churchill's play, "The
CrislB," which James K. Hackett presented to the
public this season, and in which he playB the charac
ter of Stephen Brice, is said to be the most completed
and satisfactory realization of a popular book upon
tho stage that has been seen since the appearance of
"Tho Prisoner of Zenda," years ago, In which, by tho
way, Mr. Hackett, also appeared, that being his first
Btarrlng venture. In this case, it is said, so closely
does the play follow Mr. Churchill's widely-known
novel of Civil War times, that no one who has read
tho book can feel one moment of disappointment, and
those who have not rend it will witness a well-rounded
and Interesting play. All tho lovable characters of
tho story and those closely associated with them are
in tho play, and given the same relative value.
PriceH 50c, $1.00, $1.50, and $2.00
tlcal, for mere fear that tho state will
not purchase more land In the future
Jor needed growth? At least, before
the decision Is made, would it not be
well to call the faculty together on the
one side, and the citizens of Lincoln
on the other, in order that the widest
interchange of views may be had?
For counsel, the opinion of the many
is best; for execution, the will of one.
The hour now calls for the wisdom of
all. When once the decision Ib made,
everyone will loyally accept it, but now
many of us desire to hear the argu
ments of others and to present our own
views, since the question Is bo vital
and far reaching.
