PROF. MORSE AN INVENTOR.
. -A new resolution was passed by the
Board of Regents at their meeting last
Tuesday which reads aB follows:
"No professor, instructor or other
person in the employ of the Unlver
sity shall, without special permission
from the Regents, engage in any other
employment unless the same is clearly
germane to his work for the Univer
sity; and in no case shall any outsido
employment Interfere with an em
j)loye's efficiency In serving the Uni
versity." ItfBunderstood that the new regula
tion has nogrcferenco whatever to any
action of anymember of the faculty
in the past and that it is in accord'
with the regulations of-almost every
large educational institution in the
country. It is not designed to cut off
, entirely the income of professors
which comes from outBide sources, bu
it1 is intended that the, University shall
at all times have a check on the out-

It is thought that one effect of the
new resolution will be an immediate
demand for raised salaries 6h the part
of a number of our professors who
have enjoyed a considerable income
v from outside sources. As matters now
stand the salaries paid to members

" The other business of the meeting
was not important, consisting of the
confirmation of two or three matters
which have arisen before. Miss Alice
Howell was officially granted a leave
" of absence for a year and the definite
announcement was made that Pro
fessor Losey, of Syracuse University
will fill her place beginning January
1. Miss Bess Brown, who haB held
the position temporarily, Is planning
to leave Lincoln for California immed
iately after the holidays.
. Professor Luckey was also granted
a".leave of absence to extend over the

when he expects to make an extended
tour of Europe In an investigation of
teachers' training schools.
The final work of the Regents was
the discussion of the biennial report
of the Board which is' to be presented
to the Governor next January. This
occupied the" greater part or the ses
sion and presented no features of
- startling Interest.
Patented Highly Complicated
Professor Morse, of the department
of Electrical Engineering, is having
constructed a revised modol of a re
cent Invention ho has made which ho
calls a ."Logomoter." Tho machine
is a mechanical computer on which
the long and tedious computations
which, enter into, all engineering in
vestigations can bo made with a mini
mum of brain fag.
Tho function of tho apparatus is
multiplication and division and tho
arrangements are such that the an
swer required may bo either approxi
mate or absolutely exact, at the will
of the operator.
While thero are numorous machines
on tho nlarkot which fill to some ex
tent the same want as Profossor
Morse's Invention, yet thero Is,' In the
latter, an absolutely unique device
whereby the machine keeps track of
tho decimnl point turnout tho entire
computation. With all other machines
hls feature has never been introduced
and they are useful only In making
arithmetical computations in whole
numbers, it being necessary to Iteep
track of the decimal point on a slip
of paper or in tho mind of tho operator.
Professor Morse's Invention, is fully
covered "by patents and It is expected
to put the machine on the market at
an early date.
Chancellor Tells Why Our University
Is In Lead.
At the Regents meeting lUBt Tues
day, Chancellor Andrews road a reply
he had formulated to a quory direct
ed at him by Professor Cook of tho
University of South Dakota. It soomB
that Professor Cook is making a com
parative study of college attendance
in a group of six middle-western states
and hus found Unit Nebraska has a
larger percentage of students educated
within the state thnn is tho -caso in
any of tho other five.
In answer to Professor Cook's qu&y
as to why this is tho case, Chancellor
Andrews said: "First of all thero is
tho good Judgement and oxtromo com
mon senso of tho people of the state
which provonts thorn from indulging
In tho snobbery which loads tho resi
dents of other western states to send
.their children east for an education.
Another reason is the Inclination of
the people of Nebraska to bollovo in
their own institutions, especially tho
University. This is due in largo part
to the excellence of tho record tlie
University is mnking.
"Tho final reason lor tho stnto of
affairs" noted by ProfeBsor Cook is tho
close affiliation maintained between
tho University and tho high schools
thruout tho stnto." This last point
was very strong in tho estimation of

Tho Women's Building at tho Unl-

as rapidly as possible to the point
where operations must cease for lack
of funds. It is proposed to ask tho

to finish and equip the building. When "
completed, tho new building will be
very similar in appearanco to the Agri
cultural Hall, which has been in use
now for two years. It Is hoped that ft

February 1 and that the building may
be completed, early next summer.
