NEW FEATURE IN UNI LIFE
LISH A GUILD HALL.
LOCATED AT 1501 R STREET
fCONTROLLED BY BU3INE98 MEN
OF THE CITY.
Place Where Men From Families "of
Their Church May Find a Home
to Their Liking.
By adding to tho list of homes for
university men tho BuBhnoll Guild
house, tho members of tho Brother
hood of tho First Congregational
church havo introduced a new feature
into the life of tho students at tho
University of Nebraska.
Tho guild-Is an organization for tho
purpose of maintaining a homo for
university studonts that come from
tho Congregational families of the
state. hoiiBo has been leased. at li'Ol
R street, and alroady about ten of the
university meifMiave Ipcated thero and
are ready for tho work of tho school
The guild Is a regular organized
stock company owned by tho men of
tho First Congregational church. The
organization Is for tho primary pur
pose of furnishing a homo to Congre
gational sludonls. This movement
originated last winter In the Men's
club of the church, known as the
Brotherhood, and has been developing
during tho months past until tho en
tiro scheme culminated in the opening
of tho house when the present semes-
tor commenced. luetics rcBunws- the
lurmuiuuuii ui mu upuiiiu wuru muiiy:
At last It waB decided that tho stock
company plnnsliould bo supported,
and thatltshould be carried on In n
businpsBlll& manner. A company was
organized and shares In tho enterprise
woro sold. A board of directors was
olected and plnns for carrying the
work to completion wore under way.
Tho directors of the Bushncll Guild
II. "R,. Smith, secretary.
E. J. Halner, treasurer.
H. H. "Wilson. ' ,
W. O. Jones.
S. H. Burnham. ,
With tho sale, of thosCck a home
was leased on R street, anVnrnlshed.
A reliable man was sought fill the
position of auditor, or rather manager,
for tho house. E. S. Ripley, a prac
ticing attorney in Lincoln, was ap
pointed to the position, and ho has al
roady assumed his duties.
This homo fpr boys of families in
Nebraska who are members of this
denomination Ib. a novelty In the Ne
braska institution. Many of tho uni
versities 'and colleges In tho east havo
tried It, however, and everywhere It
has proven successful. By taking the
Initial step at tho Cornhusker school,
tho men behind tho scheme feel that
they haco Jald tho fvoundation for slmn
liar organizations t'o bo built up In
other local church 'congregations-if It
proves successful here. Tho establish:
men of this home foY the, younemen

which has boon arranged for" tholr ubo,.Ul DIUUCHID IILUlulJul
but tho majority of tho men who will) )
live there during tho coming year will

McAls will bo Bcrved at tno houso also.
Hero students belonging to tho Con
gregntlonnl church will bo boardod,
whother thoy'llve In tho houao or not.
They Are Young Men.
The whole of tho guild house vl
bo occupied by thoyouiiR mob. Whllo
thoro are about ten men residing there
nt present, all arrangements will be
comploted within n fow days, when
more men wllT'conid to live thoro, as
at the proHbnt tlmo there Is room for
u fow moro.
That certain conditions at Nebraska
arc favorable for such a movomcut Is
the Idea of tho men Interested In tho
movement. 'At the presont time rents
are high, and the cost of living Is n
handicap to tho student. The mem
bers or the guild think that by renting
tho house to tho boys, they will
have advantage's not obtained in tho
regular rooming houses, for the hoys
will occupy tho entire house. Tho sec
ond story will bo used for sleeping
rooms, while the first story, which has
beon furnished as a private homo, will
bo the living section of tho" guild
house. Tho Congregational fiomp will
in some ways bo similar to a frater
nity house. Tho men, nccordlng to the
plnns of tho promoters, havo the ad
vantages of a home, instead of occupy
ing ono room, aB they would in n
rooming house, and theywlll also have
a chanco to cultivate tho ncqaolntnnce
of tho follow students who roBlflo with

well ploased with their quarters. In

young menroomlng In tho guild house

however, that A. M. wast or Fremont,

will bo poiynittod to join fraternities
should they so desire, and 'only as a
protection to tho moral side of life
will they bo restricted. Thoy wjll be
given all the liberties allowed students
of tho university, and things have
been' planned to mako the guild house

their homes at points In the state,
Room rent will bo at modorato

It is the-aim. of tho guild to furnish
suitable accommodation at n fair price
