The following Interview concerning
the alma and methods of the Carnegie
institution of, Washington, D. C, Vas
granted to The. Dally Nebraskan by
Dr. Alba M Edwards, the, traveling
representative, bkthe Institution in the
departments ofwEconomlcs and Sociol
ogy, who has been upon the campus
for the past week looking jiivcr the
possibilities at Nebraska for work in
In 1902 Andrew Carnegie trans
ferred to a board of trustees ten mil
lion dollars in five per cent United
States Steel bonds for the purpose of
founding the Carnegie Institution at
Washington, D. C.
Tho Carnegie Institution Is not a
University. IHias no faculty, no body
of students, no college buildings, and
It. offers no courses of instruction. It
should not be confused, as too often'
It Is, with the Carnegie Institute, a
technical institute at Pittsburg.
The object of the Carnegie Institu
tion is to encourage and promote In
vestigation, research and discovery In
science, literature and art; to expand
known forces, and to discover and
utilize unknown forces for the benefit
of mankind yIt ' aims to accomplish
;thls objecVnot by supplanting, but by
supplementingthe functions and re
sources' 'dfYexistlng institutions. It
does not intend to do that which oher
Institutions, or individuals, aro doing
or will undertake to do. It is a sup
plementary .agency for the purpose of
strengthening' scientific institutions
ancLsclentiflc workers and aiding them
to carry on investigations and to make
discoveries , which promise to be of
Importance to tho world. It seekB to
discover the exceptional man when
ever and whorovor he may be found,
' inside of college or outside of college,
and to enable him to make the work
for which h.e seems specially fitted his
Hitherto, -with few exceptions, re
search' has been a matter of individual
enterprise, each worker taking Xip the
special problem which chanced or
taste led him to and treating It In' his
own way. No .Investigator, working
single-handed, can at preseut ap
proach the largest problems In- tho
broadest way, thoroly and systematic
ally, Without organized effort some
nooks and corners in the field of re"
search never would bo Investigated;
others would be investigated many
times over, The Carnegie Institution
is attempting to furnish" tills needed
. , organization. It seeks to , substitute
organized for unorganized effort and
to prevent needless duplication of
wwork. The broadflold of science Is
divided int'p its different departments,
with a director In charge of each de-
. partment. This director subdivides
' his Hold and" places a capable man in
( charge, of each division. These -men,
In turn, outline -their work and secure
inte.reted'anll-,ojnclent men to 'do each
part of it. - , t

A NEW TELE8COPE.
Astronomy to Have New Equipment
Necessitates New Observatory.
The University of Nebraska Is -to
have a new telescope and a new ob
servatory. Already a big lonse, that
was manufactured by Dr. Mihhich, a
Nebraska man, has arrived. "
For some time the observatory and
ht8 facilities have been found very la
adequate, and at lUBt plans for a large
new telescope have been called for.
This Instrument will bo built In our
i own shops within the next two orthreo
Although no new building has been
arranged for, It is plain that one will
have to be built, since tho old obsorva
toiy could not accommodate the new
telescope. It is still uncertain as to
whether this observatory' will be built
on tho campus or somowhero out in
I the country.

In tho rules of the game.
TO ATTEND PHY8ICAL SOCIETY.
Dr. Almy to Read Paper in Chicago
Dr. G. E. Almy, of tho Physics -department,
will rend a paper before the

"Aggies" Play Football.
The Seniors and1 the Freshmen of
tho School of Agriculture played a
souMnspirlng game of football under
the old rules at the University Farm
on last Saturday afternoon. Tho final
scpre was lu tp u in ravoi" or the
Seniors and Indicates with compila
tive accuracy' the relative, merits of
,the. tetuuB. Tills is the first Indication
of football enthusiasm among, the
"Aggies", and it Is hoped that here
after teams may be produced every
year.' " ' ' '
AND STILL THEY COME.
Another Prehistoric 8kull Added to
Mr. E. T. Hartley has , contributed
a moundhuilder's skull to the collec
tion of miscellaneous old bones which
are to bo placed In our now museum.
This skull has very striking peculiari
ties, the most notable of Avhlch are a
flat place on the upper part of tho oc
cipital bone and two deep crnckstonc
near the ear, tho other near the torn
pie. Theso, to the unprejudiced ob
server, lndicnto that in the first placo
tho rolling-pins of the prehistoric
wives must have been rather heavy,
and, secondly, that It was fortunate
for said moundbullder that his brains
had not yet attained sufficient dimen
sions to fill tfre cranial cavity or he
might have experienced an even more
sudden demise than probably fell to
STILL AT IT.
Johnny Bender Keeping Up the Conn
Johnny Bender played in a football
game Saturday at Pullman, Washing
ton, where ho is coaching this year,
and surprised tho' westerners with his
ond runs. That the Nebraska style of
football as played In the days of the
golden past still lives is shown by the
record of the Pullman team this sea
son.' Out of five games, among which
were matches with tho Universities of
Montana, Idnho and Washington, Ben
der's oleven has won five victories and
has yet to be scored on. In every In
stance the teams played with repre
sented Institutions much larger than
the Pullman school.

Juniors, but in the trial the ball went
Avldu to tho left of tho goal. Tho bm?
