Applied Science and Professor of Me
chanical nngineorlng at Syracuse Uni
versity. ' Mr. Kent will arrive in Lin

Boilers" at 11 a. ni on that date and

4 The Engineering Society consider
themselves very fortunate In secur
ing the services of Professor Kent.
He is one of the best known engi
neers in the country. He graduated
from the Stevens , Institute as a me
chanical engineer In'' 1876; held posi
tions in the' stool and boiler business,
as editor of the American Manufac
v turer, of Pittsburg, and as superintend
ent of a factory for making scales and
balances. In 1890 ho opened up an of
ifoce 0,8 .consulting enjlneor in New
York City and remained there until
1903, whonhe was called to the chair
of Mechanical Engineering at Syra
cuse. During his service as consulting
engineer, ihe was associate editor of
-'Engineering News, one of the largest
.'engineering' papers in the country, and
''Si devqted some of his time to the wrlt
fo ' ) tag of text' books. He has published
' ' ,1'two booksiho "Mechanical Engineer's
5 Pocket Book," and '"Steam Boilei1
'("Economy," .both of which are "stan-
.dard works with engineers. His
f "Pocket Book" 4s a compilation in brief
. J and condensed form of all the engi
neering data which is ordinarily used
by a mechanical engineer, -and con
tains invaluable, tablejs .of standard
sizes, prices; .strengths, etc., of ma
terial used by engineers. On'' steam
boilers, he is perhaps the leading au
thority in the United States. He has

his book is one of the best onthe sub

The Engineering Society have gone
i,to considerable expense to bring Pro
fimr Kent to the University and it is
'honed a rood attendance at the lee-

have had some invitations printed
which will be sent to graduates arid

ALUMNI vs. NEBRASKA
UNI. CAMPUS, 3:30
ALUMNI V8. 'VARSITY.
Very Good Game Promised With "Old
Tiniers" On Campus Today.
A team composed of former1 base
ball "stars" will play the "regulars"
this afternoon on the campus. This
Tromlses to be a close and exciting
game, for the alumni team is made lip
of some of the best baseball men ever
turned out from Nebraska.
"Bobby" Hyde, at catch, played two
years, in 1905 as sub, and last year
ao regular catcher.
"Jimraie" Beltzer will pitch and Is
backed up by a fine reputation as ono
of the best pitchers ever on the team
He is a brother of "Buck" Beltzer, the
regular short-Btop. "Ike" Raymond
will hold down the first sack. "Ike"
played four years on the 'Varsity and
was counted as a brilliant first base
man. "Dude" Hammel at second
played two years on the 'Varsity dur
ing which time he put up a great
game. "Silent" Morse, well known
as an all-round athlete and especially
as a pitcher and inQolder, will play
Bhort-stop. "Gad" Qaddis also has
played two years on the 'Varsity at
the third sack. "Gad" was known as
an "eater of hot ones," so ho may bo
depended upon to do the stunt in to
"Dog" Elliott will chase balls in the,
left garden. His work while on the
'Varsity was of the highest order,
especially with the stick. "Stick" Do
Putron, who will play center-field, was
ono of the best and mOBt popular field
ers in 'Varsity baseball history. "01
lie" Mickle at right field played two
years on the baseball team as well as,
on the football team. "Ollle" is espe
daily strong at the bat
The regulars will be weakest at
first .base, as neither Kearney nor
Schmidt will be able to play.
W. T. Davis, traveling secretary for
the Student Volunteer movement, will
address the men. at the Y. M. meeting
this evening. The meeting lasts but
half an hour, from 7 to 7:30, and all
men are urged to attend. '

THE ART EXHIBIT.
Professor Dann 8peaks at Convocation
on Its Significance.
Professor W. F. Dann spoko at Con
vocation yesterday morning on "The
Art Exhibit," which he said might bo
called an artists' exhibit. Thru the
works of artists are recorded on the
canvas what they saw, thought, or
Professor Dann described the dif
ferent classes of spectators who would
go to the Art Exhibit, and divided
them Into four clashes: (1) Indiffer
ent spectators, who follow the others
because they think it the proper thing
to do. They are worth at least half
a dollar. (2) Realistic critics, who
judge every picture from its natural
ness. This is a very common way of
measuring a picture, but the chances
are w know almost nothing about it
as compared with the artist (3) Sym
bolic or sentimental critics, who find
a meaning in every picture, allowing
their hearts to get away with their
heads. (4) Technical critics, who
criticize from the standpoint of crafts
manship, telling just how the brush
was handled. Not one of these can bo
taken as the solo standard, for the
really great picture is faithful in re
port, has a meaning or thought back
of it, and is executed in an artistic

MINNESOTA WILL PLAY FOOT
BALL WITH NEBRA8KA.
Northern 8chool Agrees to Terms of
Comhuskers Will Play Under
Minnesota and Nobraska will' moot
on tho gridiron next fall and will play
under tho Non-Conference rules tho
rules which are not approved by tho
"Big Nino" Conference
A statement to this effect was given.
out yesterday afternoon by Managor
Eager upon tho receipt of a letter from
the Minnesota athletic authorities,
stating that tho Gophers would play
tho Cornhuskers next fall unaor the v
same rules that governed the Nebraska-Minnesota
gridiron contest. of
last year. The proposition of Minne
sota is satisfactory to tho local au
thorities and conceeds just the points
that tho Nobraska athletic board has
been trying to goffrom tho Gophors.
Tho rules under which tho two teams
played last fall and which Minnesota
Is willing shall govern tho next gamo ,
permit tho playing of graduate stu
dents and second semester freshmen.
Tho failure of Wisconsin and Iowa
to agree to these two rules caused tho
Nobraska athletic board to 'cancel
the Nobraska gamo with those institu
tions and to take on other schools. It
was thought that Minnesota, bolng in
tho "Big Nine" as Wisconsin and Iowa
aro, might also rofuso to play Nobras
ka without observance of tho graduate
and Freshman rules on tho part of tho
Cornhuskers. Tho announcement from
the Minnesota authorities, however,
clears up all doubt about tho Corn-huskor-Gophor
football game and
leaves tho athletic relations of Ne
braska and Minnesota .in good shape.
The action of Minnesota in regard to
the Nebraska gamo brings up the ques
tion as to what stop tho "Big Nine"
schools will take toward dropping
Minnesota from thoir schedules. At a
meeting of tho representatives of the
'Conference, April 13, it was decided
that tho "Big Nine" schools should
not schedule contests with any mem
ber of their Conference that did not
obey the Conference rules. One of
these rules forbids tho "Big Nine"
schools to play any team under non
Conference rules, and Minnesota in
agreeing to play Nebraska without tho
Graduate and Freshman rules breaks
the Conference law, for these two
rules, aro rigidly enforced in the "Big
Nine." What tho Minnesota Athletic
Board would do should the Conference
attempt to make thorn cancel the
game with Nebraska Is a question that
I cannot be answered now. Some of thq
local students, however, in oxprossin-K
their opinion on tho matter yesterday,
said they thought that Minnesota
would withdraw from tho "Big Nino."
The arrangement of the game with ' "
Minnesota , completes tho Nebraska
football schedule for 1907. It is 'as
