CHANCELLOR ANDREWS TALK8
TO UNIVERSITY GIRL8.
Urges Value of Bible 8tudy From
HIstoricaT Standpoint Mrs.
Barber Also Speaks.
At the special Convocation services
yesterday morning, Chancellor An
drews spoke to University girls upon
the importance of religious work in
connection with other studies. "Most
of you," he said, "come from evangel
ical families where you wore taught
to pray and read the Bible. But when
you come to college you seem to think
that thots of religion, church, and God
differ here. Such should not be the
case. You should connect yourselves
with organized Bible Study classes in
the Y. W. C. A., as should the young
men in the Y. M. C. A., whore oppor
tunity is offered to do real, religious
'work. You gain good in these meet
ings which does not end with your
selves, but has importance for others.
"One of the many benefits derived
comes from the study of the Christian
ScripturoB. Some people underesti
mate the Bible, but it is deserving of
lhe most reverent thot. The Bible is
the greatest book In the world, andJ
extracts from non-biblical books can
not possibly como up to the Scrip
tures.. The JBible-slandsafc tttehcrtdr
of human literature; its poetry, prose
and history being of the highest-value.
Formerly students considered Latin
and Greek as the important studies
dealing with the ancient world as "a
world of God. Now the Bible opens
the window? of antiquity, for the book
of Isaiah is contempbrary with the
Iliad. Read the Bible not only for
morality and religion, but for history
and sympathy with the antique
In conclusion, Dr. Andrews said,
"There is danger of narrowness in tho
Y. W. C. A. We must look beyond the
confines of denominations and sects
to the broadest thots. The work Is
international and one of which wo are
proud, yet many Christians do not
choose to unite with It. Non-Christians
are children of God as well as we
and let us tryjto represent Christian
ity truly and broadly."'
Mrs. Barber of' Lincoln spoke .brief
ly on the value of Bible and Mission
Study work at our University.
"Women are divided into two groups,"
she said, "First, industrial or factory
girls, and; second, college or univer
sity girls. Here is an opportunity of
lnterminlstoring. Tho Y. W C. A. is,
a part of the church work and girls
must be equipped for service In the
world. Bible Study comes as one of
the best 'plans for proper life equip
ment." . "

Jack Best is perhaps the oldest land

the gridiron wore overalls -and took
drubbings almost annually from the
Universities of Iowa, KansaB and Mis

way, the present high standing of Ne

James Gilbert Whito, President of
tho engineering firm, J. Q. Whlto &
Company, of New "York and London,
is tho Bubject of tho loading articlo in
tho last issuo of Casslor's Magazlno, a
leading engineering periodical. ThlB
biographical skotch is ospoclally In
teresting locally as Mr. Whlto was
at ono tlmo on tho engineering fac
ulty of tho Unlvorslty of Nebraska,
and began his business careor as a "
contractor in this stato. -!
James Gilbert Whlto was born at
Mllroy, Pa., in 18G1. In 1877, when ho "
was 1G years of ago, he entered tho
Pennsylvania Stato College, taking" a
courso In arts, and graduating with
tho degree of .A. B. in 1882. Aftor ro
'coiving tho degree of A. B., ho re
turned to tho Pennsylvania Stato Col
lego and concentrated his time upon
in 1883 ho entered Lehigh Univer
sity with' tho intention of studying
mining engineering. Whllo there, and ,
during tjvuwjnter ;DfU8834884eJe-,
came eBpoclalyintoroBted . Jn electrical
investigations, and finally dotormlnor
upon tnakipg electrical engineering-Ills
-, In 1884, Mr. White entorod upon bis
final work as a student in collego ux .
Cornell University, specializing in
electrical engineering and physics.
His work whllo at Cornell was highly '
gratifying and successful; in fact, ho ' "
received a fellowship in electrcal on ,.
gineorlng, followed by tho degree of
Ph. D., conferred at the commence
ment of 1885.
Mr. White may bo Judged fortunate
In having accepted, after his gradua
tion "ffoTff Cornell, the position of in
structor in physics In the University
of Nebraska. It led him for two years
to give his attention to what was, in
a great part, a careful review of much
of tho work ho iind gone over while
In college, wlthho added value of tho
constant suggestion which corned to
the instructor from his contact with
the' inquiring minds of the students.
In tho spring of 1887 ho joined force's
with others In originating the West
ern Engineering Company.
During his engineering experience
Mr. White has supervised tho design
and construction of a largo number of "
power houses, both steam and water
driven, as well as complete systems of
track and overhead construction,
bridges, electric light and railway
distribution circuits, while a number
of tho more Important installations
have, received his personal attention.
Among these may be mentioned the
Buffalo-Niagara Falls Street Railway,
and the transmission lino, from Niaga
ra Falls to Buffalo. The' former was
built In 1895, and was ono. 6f tho
first high-speed interurban lines in
America. It is believed to have been
the first road to use the four motor
equipment with series multiple con
trol now so commonly adopted for in- '', ."
