Electrical Engineering Department to
Install Aerial Apparatus Finish
Within Manth.
Nebraska will soon be in wireless
communication with other schools in
the Missouri valley. The Electrical
Engineering department of the Col
lege of Engineering has completed
the first steps in the installation of
an aerial apparatus and plan to have
the project finished within the next
month. An antennae made up of four
strands of wire 200 feet long .has
been strung from the tower of U Hall
to the roof of the Electrical Engineer
ing building. The work of leading
the wires down into the building is
now under way.
The wireless is being built mainly
for experimental purposes. Apparatus
left from the set used before the war
Is being used wherever possible.
There will be a one kilowatt set for
sending and a De Forest Uouble
amplifier for receiving. Under favor
able weather conditions the apparatus
should have a sending and receiving
radius of 500 miles.
The Senior electrical engineering
class is constructing the apparatus.
When the wireless was in use before
Ihe war its main purpose was sending
and receiving football scores. This
will probably be taken up again along
with experiments in radio telepathy.

contestants by last night, according
to an announcement made by Man
ager C. W. Woods. Tickets were
given out at the Student Activities
office and all returns will be made
Much enthusiasm has been shown
among the girls, and many schemes
have been suggested by different
sorority members to make sure that
they will be among the Ave lucky
contestants in winning tne floor
lamps. One co-ed suggested that they
could deposit the three hundred dol
lars necessary to win the lamp, at
the opening of the contest, and then
sell the necessary tickets afterward.
The fourth rule of the group pub
lished yesterday prohibits this, as it
requires that the names of the ticket
purchasers be turned in with the
money. However, promises or sales
have been made on the campus and

houses for the last two days.
