UNIVERSITY CAMPUS BEAUTIFIED BY AN EXPERT
LANDSCAPE GARDNER-MUCH WORK DONE THIS YEAR
KEEN COMPETITION EXPECTED.
Professor Fogg Looks for Spirited De
There Is one department of tho Uni
versity which -rerhapB receives the
least publicity in the press notices,
yet which exerts considerable Influ
ence over the destinies of the Uni
versity and that Is the Department
of Landscape Gardening.
This phase of campus life has been
developing for three years until at
tho present time returning students

tic and unique college campuses in the
Some tlmo ago Regent Copeland,
who was traveling In Colorado
SprlngB and was impressed by the
beauty of tho grounds surrounding the
Soldiers' Home received the inspira
tion that many possibilities were in
8 to re for the beautlfication' of our own
campus. 'Accordingly ho Induced Mr.
William Hill Duncan to' come to Ne
braska, and secured a. generous ap
propriation from the Board of Re
gonts to carry on the work.
Came From England.
Mr. Duncan Is a native of England
where ho received his experience ns
a gardener at the Sandringham Palace,
one of the king'B palaces. Hence he
brought with him a conception or royal
taste and elegance both of which have
been displayed In tho picturesque
campus which he has perfected.
It will bo conceded that Mr. Dun
can has had a dilllcult task to han
dle. His lack of familiarity with Ne
braska soil and the Irregular sotting
and design of tho buildings mado the
problem of working out a harmonious
Bchemo well nigh impossible. Yet the
Impression now received is not only
pleasing, but beautiful.
In an interview with Dean BoBsey,
he is quoted as considering tho No
braska campus ono of tho most beau
tiful for its size that In his experience
he has seen.
Farm Campus Also Beautiful.
The work of keeping tho campus up
I Is carried on by n corps of six men
who divide their time between tho
city and farm campuses. An appro
priation of $5,820 is nllowcd annually
to carry on thlB work.
At tho time of the original appro
priation It will be recalled that con
siderable opposition was raised from
some sources that the money should
be used for equipment.
