In spite of the fact that tho William
Jewell game was advertised to be the
laBt basketball game of, the season,
two post-season games with tho Oma
ha Y. M. C. A. have been scheduled,
the flrtt to be played in Omaha Mon
day, March 27th, and Ihe other here
on Friday, March 31st. The result of
these .two contests will decide the state
basketball championship. Twice be
fore this season we have met the Oma
ha team, defeating them on their floor
iu Omaha, and suffering defeat at their
hands on our own floor a short time
atterwards. These additional games
mean some more hard training for the
basketball men. The Omaha team has
always been" Ihe hardest kind of a
proposition and that tneir team this
year Is fully up to the usual standard
the outcome of bur last game with
them proves. It is probatye that an
informal dance will be arranged after
the game In the Armory', although
uothinsr definite in this direction has-l
yet been done. The 'varsity Ave picked
up active training again Saturday afternoon.

Gieenwlch, England, Observatory, was
very interesting as it marked the zero
longitude of the world. Prof. Swezey

greatest in the country, judged not
from the size of its telescopes, but for
its excellent work for the science of
Track Mass Meeting.
The Inter-Fraternity baseball sched
ule Is progressing fine and all that Is
lacking is the ratification of the fra
ternities. This will be considered at a
meeting on Wednesday evening.
Claude Robertson, manager of the
schedule, has seen every fraternity
(cmcerning representation and finds
that ten will have a team in the field.
I? these ten were to play games with
each other forty-three games would
constitute the series, but this cannot
be accomplished for lack of time. In
older to cut the number of games
down and get within the limits of the
time Robertson has divided the "frats"
into two divisions, North and South.
There are five In each division. By
doing this the number of games was
cut down from forty-three to twenty
three. By this manner intense enthusiasm
will be manifested by the time of the
championship game between the win
ners of, the Noith and South side di
isionp. It is the intention of the
management to start the ganfes as
soon as possible.
Prof. Sweezey at Chapel.
Prof. S-vvezey, gave the'thlrdof his
series of illustrated lectures"at Convo
cation yesterday. Prof. Swezey's lec
tures upon phases of astronomy, while
not lacking scientific qualities are very
.popular and yesterday's address proved
to be not less Interesting than the
pievlous ones. The subject of his lec
tHire was "Astronomical-Observations.'
He began with a few Introductory re
marks concerning observations of the
middle ages, showing views of the
crude Instruments used In the sixteenth
century. He then explained ihe re
quisites foran ideal observatory, one
of these, contrary to popular opinion,
being that it should be a low building

.been able to do any training whatever

Dr. Clapp will speak to the men and
give them some general directions
about the niles to be followed while

Westinghouse Lecture.
Mr. Chas. E. Downton, Foreman of
Apprentices of the Westinghouse Com
pany of Pittsburg, Pa., will speak this
eening at eight o'clock in the Chapel
on the apprenticeship work with his
company. The lecture will be Illus
trated by moving pictures showing the
Interior of the shops and the men at
work. These pictures were a most at
tractive featiuc of the Westinghouse
Company's exhibit at St. Louis. The
department of apprentices of the large
manufacturing companies is of the
greatest' importance to technical grad
uates. It will also be most entertain
ing, as well as Instructive to the pub
lic generally. Those who saw these
pictures at St. Louis last summer
speak highly of them and do not regret
the time lost from the "Pike" while
they visited the Westinghouse theater

ant outing last week at Meadow, Neb.,

A little time was taken each day for
recieation by the members of tho
party and basketball and other sports
were.engaged in to add to the pleasure
of the occasion.
About two hours of each evening was
spent around the camp fire listening
to speeches and stories made by thoso
present. In this line of snort Mr. Ed.
Manning, Mr. Gllmote MacDonald and
Mr. J. E. Edgerton proved to be the
star performers. Messrs. Manning and
MacDonald scored several touchdowns
on story telling while Edgerton crossed
the tape sereral yards to the good ou
his wit which prevailed on all occa
sions. The boys report a very pleasnnt and
enjoyable experience and the only re
gret expressed Is that the time devoted
to the occasion could not be lengthened.

began experimenting with floor prep
arations about two years ago. He has
succeeded so well that about four
months ngo he ,put out a preparation
which has all the properties of n
"dust killer" without the objectionable
oily feature. Mr. Blackman discussed
the merits of his product before the
Lincoln City Schools last 8aturdny
evening and expects to treat the. floors
of all the city schools in the near future.
