UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, WEDNESDAY, MAY 17,
I SENIORS SNEAKED AWAY
EARLY THIS MORNING
DEPART ON 8PECIAL TRAIN WITH
f "THElR HOSTAGES.
MILfORD SEES GREAT PARADE
Ball Gamo in Progress at Last-Reports
. Old Soldiers' Home and Other
Today is senior sneak day. Early
this morning, very early in. fact, at
the most unearthly hour of seven, the
sonlors, emulating the example of the
Airabs of poetic fame, folded their
tents and tole away to Milford on a
train rim especially for them by the
Burlington. While the remainder of
tho school is wondering what causes
the campus to have such a deserted
look, tho members of the class of 1911
are disporting themselves on tho
banks of the Blue. With them are soV
'eraT members of the other classes who
wore most ioully abducted and taken
A Grand Pageant.
Upon their arrival at Milford, the
seniors formed In a parade and
marched through tho ordinarily peace
ful streets of the little city. Several
spectators on the sidewalk were heard
to say that it was an imposing spec
tacle and the procession had it coml
plotely rthung on" the grand pageant
of the Unlcle Tom's Cabin show which
was there several weeks ago, includ
ing the bloodhounds. The procession
finished, the merry-makers then pro
ceeded to the open fields, and when
tho last report was received a very
heated and perspiring game of base
ball was in progress.
The list of stunts provided for the
remainder of the day contains many
and varied pleasures. In the forenoon
a visit will bo paid to the old soldiers'
homo and many happy and exciting
minutes will bo spent there sliding
down that most famous fire escape
which generation after generation of
seniors have kept bright and shiny.
At noon a sumptuous lunch will be
serVed on the grass in the shade of
some friendly tree. -In tho afternoon
a visit will be made to the" Culver
bottling works, where the famous Sho
go Lithia water bubbling unceasingly
from the ground is enclosed In glass.
For those who have a mind to show
off their muscular prowess before the
admiring eyes of the fair sex there are
rowboats and a slight current, to be
breasted. Of course, blisters will be
forthcoming, but that Is of little con
sequence. The seniors will return to Lincoln
about 6 o'clock tsla evening. That
they will be both sunburned and tired
Is a certainty. But the Joy of having
spent a day in the open air when
school "was keeping" will more than
offset tho slight physical discomforts
which may be the outcome.

ETHICS OF A BRIDGE ENGINEER.
His Duties to His Clients and Profes
sion by Dr. Waddell.
Dr. Waddell gave an address Mon
day evening on the "Ethics of a Bridge
Engineer." "Ethics" in this sense Is
defined as the right conduct of a
bridge engineer,'" said .Dr. Waddell.
"I wfll give later my Ideas of how a
bridge engineer should conduct him
self "with others -and others with him,
The Engineering -profession Js' filled'
with men who aro courageous, hard
fighting men, who are able to Btand up
for their rights, though there aro, I
regret to say, some unscrupulous men
who call themselves engineers. The
criterion of a bridge engineer when
considering employing a man should
be 'Does the man under consideration
belong to tho American Society of
Civil Engineers and what grade does
he belong to? Some engineers argue
that If an engineer designs some ap
paratus or originates a good Idea that
ho should give It to tho whole en
gineering world gratis. But this I do
not agree with. Englnders by all
moanB should; patent their Ideas and
thus protect themselves. They should
take advantage of all tho protection
offered them by tho patent laws of
their country. These same men also
say never criticise another engineer's
work. This again is wrong, because
only in criticism can wo Improve our
work, and when a man's mistake Is
shown to him and criticised he will be
sure to profit by it In his next work.
Again some Bay never give any Infor
mation to promoters or others gratis.
This Is right in some ways, though
many a large piece of work has been
obtained by giving his first advice
Tho ethics of a bridge engineer are
divided into the following divisions:
The duty of a bridge engineer to his
profession, relation of a bridge en
gineer to his professional brethren,
duty of a bridge engineer to his clients
or employers, to his employes and
them to him; to tho contractors, to
the public, and to himself. Dr. Wad
dell then discussed each of these thor
oughly. Ho next spoke upon "Riveted versus
Pin Connected Trusses." "For more
than a quarter of a centuary there has
been a controversy upon this point of
constructlonand It was at first chiefly
between American and English, en
gineers, but later among American
engineers J' He spoke upon the advan
tages and disadvantages of each con
nection, also the lengths each are
UBed for and his own Ideas upon It
and his own experience In practice.
He also spoke upon "some business
features of bridge engineering," giv
ing, in detail the organization of the
office and field work and .forces, meth
ods of soliciting work, ways of deal
ing with .prospective or active clients
and the manner In which to treat his
employes and how to handle tho finan
cial end of tho work.
He then spoke on the "Administra
tion of Construction," and "Arbitra
tion." He discussed both thoroughly,
explaining methods UBed In letting
contracts, of handling and caring for
men and methods of working reports.
In "Arbitration" he advocated staying
away from law recourse as much as
possible and to be as fair as possible.
PHILIPPINE TEACHING SERVICE.
Examinations to Be Held August
30 and 31.
The United States civil service com
mission announces an examination on
August 30 and 31, 1911, for teacher, In
dustrial teacher and department assist
ant for the puyose of securing a list
of eliglbles from which appointments
may be made as vacancies occur in the
Philippine teaching service.
Appointments made from this eli
gible list will, in the ordinary course,
be for service beginning with the
school year 1912, but, there may be
need for additional teachers during the
coming school year to take charge "of
special lnes of work or engage in. reg
ular ; teaching; and; Jsuperylgngcas, the
work of "fie schools" is extended and
theBo appointments will bo made from
amortg thoBo who may bo ready to sail
before the beginning of tho school
year of 1912.
This opportunity for ambitious and
well-trained young men and women to
Identify themselves with our Insular
po8se86lons and become a part of the
great movement In the east, Is a most
exceptional one. . The educational sys
tem in the Philippines has grown dur
ing tho past ten years to such an ox
tent that thore aro now employed over
9,000 American and Filipino teachers
with an attendance of more than half
a million students representing an ex
penditure of over three and a quarter
million dollars of Philippine revenues.
Detailed information relative to
these examinations may be secured by

fairs, Washington, D. C.

MYSTERY WHICH SHROUDED DIS-

At last tho mystery has cleared; no
longer will violent charges of "thief"
and bitter epithets for particular par

About a month ago, some curious in
dividual propounded the query:
"Whore is tho competitive cup?" Then
the mystery thickened. Colonel Kra-

concerning its habitat The respec

for tho prize, the victim could not bo

sterling standard "PdQ." Several of
the more vigorous had received "tips"
and "hunches" until they were con
fident that company D was guilty. But,
saddest to relate, the ovidenco was not
Just at this crucial moment, when
animosities were obliged to crystallize,
a suggestion was received that, accord
ing to precedent, the inscription of the
winning company was carved on the
cup. Since trace up until this occur

with power to act was dispatched to
the local Jewelry store. The commit
tee acted. So did the Jewelry store.
And the cup was again relieved of the
shroud of mystery to bo subjected to
tho most strenuous competition before
final disposal. Thus endeth the read
