New Organization for Promotion of
Journalism in University.
Last evening a meeting was held at
which a new club for the encourage
ment and promotion of journalism In
the University was organized. At this
meeting a committee was appointed
to formulate a constitution and then a
spirited discussion was entered upon
as tb the place of the club In the Uni
versity and the possibilities for var
ious kinds of work open to it.
This sort of organization is not an
innovation in college circles; clubs, of
a similar nature exist at Wisconsin,
Michigan and a number of the larger
institutions, so that Nebraska is sim
ply falling into line with a progressive
spirit in college Journalism. The work
of the Press Club though not as yet
fully outlined, will include a serious
criticism of journalistic methods in use
hero with a view to lifting them to
higher efficiency, a series of set pro
grame with contributions from mem
bers and addresses by practical news
paper men of experience, and the
general encouragement of the study
and practice of journalism as a profes
sion among college men.
. There are ten charter members
whose' names follow: T. A. Brown, H.
W. Craig, C E. Elliott, JP. A. Ewlng, J.
C. Knode, A. B. Long) H.' G. Myers, S.
M. Rlnaker, B. M. Sunderland, J. M.
Fred Hunter, '05, has been apoint
ed superintendent of schools at Ash
land. He now holds the same posi
tion .at Fairmont.

U. OF N. CHICAGO CLUB.
University Men In the Windy City
The weekly luncheon "stunt" inaug
urated by the University of Nebraska
Chicago Club is succeeding most ad
mirably as the following list of Ne
braska men who attended the lunch
eon a week ago yesterday will testify:
Bruce W. Benedict, B. L. Chambers,
Dr. Geo. W. A. Luckey, Philip J. Mc
Gulre, Frank J. Bruner, Everett M.
Swain, James J. Sayer, V. C. Barber,
'Guy M. Peters, Frank 'Brick, Charles
K. Payne, Miss Carter, E. B. Sherman,
Sup of Schools, Columbus, Neb Gold
Williams, C. H. TrueDavid L. Killen,
Deputy Supt. Bishop, Fred P. Dawson.
The lunch is held every .Tuesday
noon at one of the most select Chicago
cafes, tables being reserved at that
hour for old Nebraska men. 'It is
urged that ail Cornhuskors who hap
pen to. bo in Chicago drop in upon the
Nebraska bunch at their Tuesday
luncheon and renevN(Kold acquaint
Non Com Poster.
The poster announcing the Non Com
hop has appeared- and is eliciting
much favorable comment, attracting
especial attention since the work of
one not known in the field of poster
making in the University. The de
sign has the 'chevrons of ail the non
commissioned officers of the battalion
as a border, and the lettering, whjlo
plain is most effective. Mr. Harrison
declares it to be a very creditable
piece of work. The artist Is C. C. Mc
A FIRE-PROOF BUIuDING PRAC
Planned According to Latest Rules
8oapstone Tables in Laboratories
Room For All Exhibits.
The new Museum will be completed
within a few days, and the Department
of Geology expects to bo able to movp
Into Its new quarters by the 15th of
This building, which will cost about
$15,000, 1b constructed wholly of steel,
cemont and brick, which renders it
porfectly rigid and fire-proof. There
are no ( partitions of wood, and oven
the roof 1b of motal laid with cement
and fire-brick. Besides. being tho flrbt
fire-proof, steol constructed cllflco on
the campus, this building is planned
according to the very latest museum
rules, having its windows of such size
and so arranged as to furnish tho
largest possible amount of light and
Tho four floors will bo occupied by
tho exhibits of the University Museum
and not a foot of space is to be lost in
hallways. Students going to and from
tho laboratories will pass thru the
museum rooms instoad of having a
special hall provided for this purpose.
At the east end of each, floor is a
spacious and moderately equipped lab-
I oratory, containing four blulBh-gray
soapstono tables. These novel tables
are an entirely new departure from
the conventional marble tables, and
arc the invention of Professor Bar
bour. The advantage of tho soapstono
over the ordinary laboratory table; is
that it is not affected by acids or alka
lies. Gas, water and, if necessary,
compressed air will be available to
students at the tables without their
rising from - work, pipes bon$
brought in thru the table supports.
Another new feature in the plan of
this building is the steam tunnel which
is laid underground, Just a few feet to
the inside of the foundatlpn, There
is-no basement room, but thru man
holes In the floor, workmen may en
ter the tunnels to make repairs on
the heat pipes.
All the brick used is of local manu
facture so that similar material for'
repairs and future additions will be
easily available; and it -will bo but
a short time till the building is ex
tended westward fifty or seventy-five
feet. Provision has been made, for this
extension by leaving 'the west edd of
the building blind, with blind arches,
on each floor, these to be opened as
passage-ways between the two apart
ments, when tho addition is built.
When the museum exhibits shall,
have been moved into these now
apartments they will be much less .
crowded than they have been in the,'
old building, and will show up much
better In the excellently lighted rooms.
In addition to the material at present
on' exhibition, there wlllbo some seventy-five
tons of new material, that,
has- never found room in- the old
Museum. During the past several,
years many tons of exhibits have been
