Tho Palace of Education In which all
of tho oducatlonal exhibits will be
housed, is shaped like- a great key
stone. It is the Hi si that has ever been
built at any exposition. It covers teven
acres of gum ml, and is of Immonse pro
pciticii9. But even this great building
as oiiginally designed waR-cntlrely In
adequate to meet the demands for
smicc An open court cocring two
acres had been left in I ho center, but
it was found necessary to loot it over
and utilize the space A building cov
eting thirty acres would not sulllce
to accommodate all the requests for
space that have been received, iowu
desired 10,000 feet, but was obliged to
be content with 1-00. We would have
desired 4,000 feet, but have been abllgod
to do with much loss.
Tho spaco allotted- Nebraska is ad
vantageously located on the main nlale
of tho Palace of Education. Hero, on
a slightly- raised floor space of 900 feet
square, will stand a booth 30 feet
square, with two suitable facades fac
ing tho aisles. Tho wall space will bo
Increased by ceitain wings, and by cabi
nets of swinging frames. Acording to
tho intention of the chiefs of the de
partment, everything educational
should reach a high standard of excel
lence. Exhibits must bo seloct, con
densed, and well classified, bound In
books and portfolios. Diagrams, photo
graphs, statistics and tho like will be
displayed1 mostly In swinging frames.
Other work will bo displayed on the
wall. In addition there will he coun
ters, book shelves, cases, desks "and
lockers'. It 1b particularly desirable to
obtain history and data concerning
each school, to be accompanied wher
ever possible by photographs of tho
