The busiest place upon the campus
at the present time Ib the new en
gineering building. Every man who
can work to advantage has been
crowded upon the building In a) effort
to make the utmost possible use of
the present fine weather". At leat
twenty masons and a corresponding
large number of carpenters and their
helpoJs aro upon the work.
The building Iihb now reached thnt
stage where tho architectural effect of
the whole la beginning to be evident.
The design was expected to give a
massive effect and the heavy terra
cotta arches which are now being
thrown over tho second story win
dows tend to give UiIb effect. The
color of tho brick and terra cofta,
which aro being used, nro In perfect
harmony and will produce a building
which will be an ornament to the cam
pus. Not Entirely Fireproof.
The new engineering building will
be as nearly fireproof as any building
on tho campus, but the lack of money
makes It Impossible to make, it com
pletely so. The main floors wfll be
steel, but the roof will bo constructed
of wood. Tho danger of fire will,
however, be reduced to the minimum,
as the wood will be covered on the
outside by tile which aro Incombus
tible and will be protected on the in
side by a cement floor in the attic.
As this attic will not be used the Are
ilsk ls reduced to the minimum.
The only building on the campus
which might be considered more' pear
ly fireproof than this one, is the now
museum. Here o steel roof was used
but on the other hand the stalrwayB
ure of wood; while in tho engineering
building they will bo of steer. So far
as practical safety Is concerned no
building on the campuB more nearly
roaches the' Ideal than the engineering

In the case of Lincoln and the uni
versity tho Nebraskan's critics would
have tho students deny their patron
age to tho Majestic .and Lyric and at
tend only tho Oliver shows. By this,
though, they would not be improving
tho situation any, for some of tho
Oliver's plays have more degrading
features than any of tho Lyric or Ma
jestic bills. No vaudeville stage
offers anything more sensuous than
the avorago comic opera. No jokes
more vulgar than those heard at the
Oliver are uttered on any other Lin
coln stage. Tho managers of tho Ly
tic and Majestic never had tho insult
ing audacity to place before the Lin
coln public such qs.how as disgraced

of tho American universities who is a

"Mr. Shaw, who is a keen busi

commercial viewpoint. He scoffs at
bociologlsts because they are preach

him. Mr. Shaw seeks only business
prosperity, while tho sociologist seeks

which Is being used on tho building is
proving itself to be of great value
In this work. It Is doing the worlc
of four or five men, while at the same
time It mixes the mortar much, more
perfectly than It could bo done by
band. Tho machine Is rapidly finding
favor with contractors having large
buildings to construct, as it more
than pays its cost. ,
The foreman in charge of tho work
estimates that it will be completed
about the first of Februnry. There will
bo no delay from lack of material and
If the weather permits the work can
bo rapidly rushed to a conclusion. At
this time of the year, however, it is
always .possible to have such weather
that no work can be done, and In case
this is true this year It is likely to
take much longer to complete the
work than is now estimated. Even

had thus far, the .masons have been
