Will Consist of Three Wings and Will
Hold Hundreds of Exhibits-Description.
The new Museum, which has ar
oused so much comment on the cam
pus, will be, when finished larger than
any building which we now have, with
the possible exception of University
Hall. The building as It stands to
day is less than half of what will even
tually be the south wing of a com
pleted building of three wings. Two
similar wings will be built on the
north of the present structure. The
north wing will approach as near the
north fence as the present building
does the east fence, and will occupy
part of the ground now covered by Ne
braska Hall. The three wings will be
connected by hallways, making a
building that is nearly the shape of
the letter E.
The whole building will be four
stories high and the architectural fea
tures of the present structure will be
carried out in each wing as It Is built.
The building will face the west. The
architect has also arranged for two
very elaborate entrances to cost about
five thousand dollars each.
Mr. Kimball, a prominent architect
of Omaha, is the architect for this
building, and in designing It, took into
consideration all the requirements of
an ideal museum. It Is arranged to
admit the maximum amount of light.
Professor Barbour and Miss Barbour
have visited the museums of Yale and
Harvard, together with the New York
Natural HiBtory Museum and they feel
that no museum In the country will be
better adapted for the display of speci
mens than ours, when It Is completed.
When the exhibits are In place and
every available foot of space on tho
four floors is taken there will still be
a large number of exhibits that will
have to be packed away. It 1b expect
ed that the next session of the legisla
ture will authorize the completion of
at least the wing already started.
The first floor of the building is to
bo used for Btore rooms, work rooms,
and laboratories. On the second floor
the heavier materials such as agates
and bad 1 andvertebrates will be dis
played. Besides this, the offices of the
department and the offices of the geo
logical survey will be found on thlB
floor. On the third floor will be every
thing relating to man, such as mum
mies, Indian relics, etc. On the fourth
floor will be placed the lighter mater
ials such as stuffed animals and birds.
Owing to the great amount of labor re
quired In moving the museum many
specimens are not yet in their proper
shape on the exhibition shelves. If
will be some time before everything 1b

The Museum as
First Year Men Are Looking for Can
didates. Altho no date has been set for the
Freshman class election, yet there is
considerable speculation among the
first year men as to whom the candi
dates for .president will be. While no
students have come out as seeking the
presidency still it is generally under
stood that several of them have politi
cal bees and that they are doing a lit
tle wire pulling. It is known that
each Lincoln, Omaha, and Beatrice
has a candidate for tho qfflce. There
are also several "dark horses," yet
