Plana aro rapidly being completed
(or tho furnishing of the interior of
the now engineering building: The
Caculty of the department Is busy
with this part of tho work, and last
evening the larger furnishings which
will probably be secured wero decided
Many of these will be of special de
signs, worked out by the department.
In. .Uio, wood-working department the
iabijratorleg will bo fitted throughout
witS new benches for which the con
tract has already been let. These
beaches aro of special design and will
contain many new and novel features.
A, number of lathes built by the stu
dents will also be Installed with a ca
pacity of seventy-two students to a
section. In addition to the present
equipment there will also bo put in
a. planing machine and hand saw.
In-the foundry laboratbry In addi
tion to the equipment now in use,
there will bo added an additional
cupafo furnace having a molting ca
pacity of two tons per hour, a pair of
brassy furnaces, n . portable-typo core
oven,, together with a charging eleva
tor and a five-ton traveling crane
spanning the moulding room. This
laboratory will probably accommodate
between" thirty and 'forty students in
Few changes will be made in the
forging laboratory t in the present
equipment asldo from the placing of
a now blower and a new exhaust fan,
both motor driven, in tho machine
tool laboratory, besides the equip
ment which will be moved into place,
' a number of now screw-cut engine
lathes Will bo added. A radial drill
press of large capacity, a plane mill
ing machine, and probably a univer
sal grinding machine will also be
A Corliss Engine.
The mechanical engineering labora
tory, Including the work in steam en
gines, gas engines, and hydraulics,
.will be fitted, out with a BPOcral..oxporl
mental 'crpssWrnpound' condensing
Corliss i v engine of 160 horsepowers
This will bo arranged with steam Jack
ets and will bo -designed so as to
operate either as a simple or, a com-'
jpound engine; making a wide range
of experiments possible with the "ma
chine. This Is probably the' moat lm-.
portant piece of machinery to be in
stalled in the new building. It is
'also expected to install a crosWom
pound steam-driven two-stage, air com
pressor especially designed for . ex'
perlmerital work. ,- , c ,

qwliar Importance ': at the r present
tlpie. ' It ii also expected that one" or
more typos of internal-combustion en
gines. burning gas, gasoline; and crude
petroleum will bo installed.
A ton-ton experimental refrigerat
lng plant may also bo Installed, which
will enable experiment and rosoarch,
work to bo dono on the production
of cold and tho manufacture of ice
by mechanical means. It is hoped to.
bo able to put In at least one small
steam turbine to demonstrate b(o
possibilities in this latest typo of
steam driven prime mover.
Turbine Pumps Installed.
For experiment work in hydraulics
there will be installed a pair of motor?
driven two-stage ' turbino pumps each.
with a capacity of 400 gallons a min
uto against 100 pounds pressure when
operated in multiple or combined.
Thoy will have a capacity of 400 gal
lons a minute against 200 pounds
pressure when operated in series. In
addition tho hydraulic equipment will
Include the necessary pressuro tank's
already Installed, a re-lnforced cistern'
and'weir tanks, a long steel weighing
tank, and two pairs of 6-ton scales.
In addition to these larger Items of
.apparatus there will bo a largo num
ber of engineering instruments and
testing appliances that will have to bo
installed. The oquipment, as at pres
ent planned, may bo changed some
what as to detail, but it is hoped
to install this apparatus complete.
While it is expected to have the
work faf enough along to make use
of tho laboratories on tho opening of
school In the fall, the work Is hardly
expected to be comploto by that time.

league are all In, and the members
of the .league, Nebraska, Minnesota,
Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, have
been- exchanging questions for some

Mr. E. M. Halladay, of the University
The list of proposed questions cov
ers a diversity of subjects mainly of
an economic and sociological nature.
It is expected that the list of prefer
ences will be compiled and the ques
tion announced by the end of thiB
week or tho first of next, Many
students are anxiously awaiting the
announcement of this quostioh as it is
tho one which will be used in the pre
liminary debates or tryouts to pick
the men for the InCer-coiiegiate de
bate. The first of these tryouts "will,
be held two or three weeks after
the announcement of the question at

the northern team.
It is probable that there will bo
a few changes In tho make-up of tho
squad that goes on the eastern trip.
A chango may be made in tho pitch
ing staff, and a substitution Is also
likely to take place In tho case of
one of the fielders.

At Ames the cornhuskers aro likely
to be up against tho hardest propo
sltlon they, hayo faced this spring, for
the Iowa aggies aro exceedingly
strong. During the past two weeks
they have played several games and
have won practically all of them, One
of their most prominent victims was
Drake university, which wad defeated
twice by rather largo margins. The
Missouri university team which stayed
In L'inocln to play at Wesleyan yes

The track training table will be
Btarted next week and will be run at
one of the local hotels. For a time
the athletic board' thought of trying
an experiment of conducting a table'
of its owji in the basement of the,
Temple. This plan, however, had to
bo abandoned, as no suitable rooms
could be secured there this spring,

UNIVER8ITY 8ENATE TO MEET
Will Consider Change in Camp Date
Tho university senate will meet at
5 o'clock this afternoon to tako final
action on tho date set for the annual
cadet encampment. Since tho an
nouncement that the camp would be
held June 4-9 thero has boon much
opposition on tho part of cadets and
seniors, tho latter objecting because
tho dates conflict with commence
ment weok. The plan now suggested,
as exclusively announced in Tues
day's Nebraskan, contemplates hold
ing camp Juno 2-7. .The senate, will,
docldo whether or not to make the
change at tho meeting today.
v In addition to tho camp question,
tho senate will decide at what hour
classes will bo dismissed May 14 for
high school fete day. An erroneous'
announcement fixed the, hour at 10
a. m, but this will not be adhered
to. Noon or 2 p. m. Is more likely,

LEGISLATIVE ACTION NECESSARY
FOR PENSION FUND.
CARNEGIE HEAD STATES FACTS
REGENTS HAD THE RIGHT BUT
NOT THE TRUSTEES.
Although University Beard Was Em
powered to Acoept 'Donations
Without Legislative Consent,
1 Trustees Could Not Give.
During tho past winter, when the
university authorities woro Booking
to porsuado tho legiBlaturo to allow
teachers omployod by tho stato to
participate in the bonoflts of the
Carnogio pension, thoro woro some
lookers-on who doclarod that tholr
efforts wore noodloss. Those ob
sorvors called attention to the para
graph in tho charter of tho university
which gavo tho unlvorslty'rogonts the
right to accept anydonatlons or gifts
without roforonco 'to tho legislature.
They thought that this proylsion was
onough authority for tho acceptance
of tho pension, without furthor ado
with tho lawmakers.
That this was not tho caso and that
tho regents did the only thing possible
undor the circumstances is made
clear by a lottor rocontly received by
tho university from tho Carnegie
Foundation for tho Advancement of
Teaching, which has charge of tho
pension fund. Tho letter is in an
swor to a query mado to ascertain,
whothor it was possible or not that
any mistako had been mado in under
standing tho provisions of tho pension
According to this lottor, the Carne
gie trustees would have no right to,
grant tho pensions evon if tho rogonts
had the right to receive them, which.
Is admitted. Tho tonus of the dona
tion made by Mr, Carnogio and by
which all tho pensions aro governed
stato that tho trustees shall not admit
to tho bonefit of tho retiring allow
ance system any stato university in
Which the request for this admission
had not received tho approval of the
legislature and of tho governor of the
state. Tho question, thus, is. not ono
of ability of tho regents to accept
but of complying with tho provisions
laid downby the donor.
This statement by tho Carnegie
trustees of their' attitude and rules
will quiet tho criticism which has
been directed in some quarters' against
tho regents, on tho grounds that their
action in tho matter was inexpedient
and unnecessary. .
May Do It Later.
The action, of the legislature in
turning down the request 6t the uni
versity does not In 'any way injure
the chances of the university's being
later pui' upon the pension list When
ever at any .future time the state
legislature and the governor shall
approve of ' the ' pension idea,, the
Carnegie -trustees will bo perfectly
free to put the university tfn .the list,
regardless of' the action of the- past
lawmaking body, i . .. &:.-
