sity will address' the students of Ne
braska University In Memorial hall on
"The Engineer and His Work." The
address is given under the auspices of
the Engineering Society, but the na
ture of his lecture will not be strictly
technical, and, will bo broad enough to
Interest all students In the Univer
sity.' Professor Goes Is Dean of .the
Schools of Engineering of Purduo Uni
versity and those who know of him
and' his work say that it will be a
great treat to have htm hero. The
Engineering students have gone to
considerable expense to bring him hero

At a meeting of the Engineering 6o
ciety last night Professor Richards
gave a talk on Professor Goss and his
work and the substance of his remarks
ProfKsfeor Goss is not a college grad
uate, in the strict sense, although he
has 'several honorary degrees, but
comes from the practical sido of an
engineering education. He was a stu
dent at the Boston Institute of Tech
nology which was the first school In
the country to Introduce tho present
system of manual training in connec
tion with the engineering studies,
which Byetom was Introduced into thlB
country from Russia.
Afters studying 'at -Boston two years
he went to Purdue and there intro
duced the system into the course of
that schdol. The scheme of shop work
which ho there Instituted Is the almost
universal scheme used by all tho En
gineering schools of today and he is
the author of a book on- "Bench
Worh" which Is tho text used here in
the woqfl working shops. He la. largo-
ly responsible -for most of tho latest
.improvements in the laboratories at
Pyrdile, and-, the Experimental appara
tus which ho designed for practical lo
comotives testing at Purdue has proved
Itself entirely satisfactory and has-
won for itsaUthor international fame.
The laboratoryjnentloned Is by far the
est in the country and serves tho
purpose better than oven the locomo-.
tivee in actual operation, which are
arways subject to' conditions which

Dramatic Club to Aid Y. M. C. A.
The two plays which will be given
by the Dramatic Club Saturday ovon
Ing will more than rival any previous
productions of that organization. Both
plays havo received an unusual amount
of practice, "Mr. Bob" having been
iven last spring. The very best tal
ent in the University has been secured1
Tot the casts and tho plays will un-t
doubtedly prove creditable to the Dra
matic Club. The proceeds of the play
will go to the Y. W. C. A. to aid that
organization in securing their pledgo
to the temple fund. Tho price of ad-
mission for the two plays Is 25c. The
casts are as follows:

Prof. Danh on "Culture."
Prof. Dann spoko yesterday at con
vocation. The subject of his address
was "Culture." There are two main
characteristics of a cultured man, said
Prof. Dann. The first Is "inquisitlve
ness' not tho frivilous and reproach
ful InqulsltiVGBGSB, which Is always
the sign of unculture, but a disinterest
ed 'eagerness to 'know, "ltmust be the
passion for pure knowledge free from
any Bolflsh motives to bo a factor in
culture. The second characteristic of
culture Is a life for the esthetic, an en
joyment of art, novelty and- nature.
This fine .sensibility Is entirely absent
-in many men who care only for prac
tical things of life. College men are
hot excluded from this class. The pro
portion of mon registering for culture
'studies In the universities is falling off
every year and practical courses aro
being substituted. College mon are
n8MWfe too much In their work,,
th snould hav(J a taBiQ for all human
knowledge. A cultured man must have
sympathy for every side of life.
