Planned by Dean Richards
The working planB of the new me
chanical engineering laboratories
were prepared during the winter of
1907 and 1908 by Dean Richards of the
college of engineering.
In the spring of 1908 the contracts
were let. and the building waB com
pleted in the fall of 1909.
In style- of, archltecturoi the build
ing may be classed as a modification
of the Roman Doric, which gives to

ityin spite or the large windows
winch is in liarmony With the "uses fo
which the. building Ib put. The ex
terior Is finished with "Iron spot" or
''flash" pressed brick, trimmed; with
terra cotta which matches the brick.
The roof Is of red tile and the cor
nices are of copper, the whole giving
a pleasing color effect In shades of
brown. The- Interior construction of
the building Is of tlio most substantial
character, the floors being of rein
forced concrete throughout, carried by
liftvy steel beams which arc support
ed by steel columns. Since tho build
ing is primarily for laboratory pur
poses, the floors were- made heavy
enough to carry the largo weight of
moving machinery which comes upon
thein. All of the" halls have wainscot

The cabman heaved a mournful
sigh, and started In to storm and
cry. No money Jingled In his
pants, ho eyed his bony team
askance, and gave his cab a sorry
stare a cab In. TfeedOf much re
pair, he spit his quid upon tho
walk, and straightway started In
to talk. Said he. "Alas how times
have changed, I well can think
when prices ranged from three to
six and even more, and overy hack
In town hold four. Thoso TJnl boys
dug up the cash that kept us hack
men full of hash. They'd soak
their clothes, and even smile to
take a cab and come In style. All
them wns days I'll ne'er forget, it
mnkes me weep already yet; I hnd
three Bquare meals every day and
each horse had a bale of hay. No
matter how the student cuBsed, he
couldn't break tho hackmen's trust,
It was no jso to hand us talk, .
they'd either juavo to pay orwalk.
Them days waB simply grapeB for
me, but times hns changed as you
can see. My services they don't
request, it scorns they like tho
street Sars best. The boys have
one and all agreed that cab's are
something they don't need. The
girls, no matter what they say,
they either come or stay away;
B-Gosh, as far as I can uoe, they've
tied the Indian sign on me."

Nebraska varsity's second game of the
season and the last of the gameB pre
liminary to the conference series.
Wesley nu was easily routed. Al
though fighting stubbornly throughout
the first half, the .Methodists gradual
ly weakened after the beginning of
the second hair and devoted their

play. The Nebraska line-up at tho
start was as announced, Owens and
Gibson sis forfards. Hlltnor at centor,
and Carrier and Frank guarding.
During the first ten minutos or tho

team alternately Bhootlug two goals.
Nebraska took this opportunity Imme
diately after the whistle first Bound

ward, was then ruled out ojf the game
for fouling. The neighbor team In
stantly weakened and closed the first
half with a score or 15-21.

A One-Man Race.
Although some, who claim to know,
say that Clifford Phillips Is to have

class, It Is hardly thought probable
that any new candidates will appear
later than today. It -Is generally un
derstood that Phillips has a strong
following or TrFends In the second
year class. One of tho strange things
about it is that the sophomore class
had only one candidate at the elec

two successive elections without a
good race livening up the second. A
