of Elgin, Nebraska, former president
of the board of regents, is chairman,
hag put into tangible form its con
ception of the campus of the future
The proposed plan for the univer
sity campus has been worked out in
a miniature model, and is now ready
for the inspection of those interested
It may be seen upon request at the
office of the superintendent of opera
tions, 205 Administration building.
Purpose of Exhibit
Alongside the model of the pro
posed campus, is this statement:
"To Whom It May Concern:
"The officers of the University of
Nebraska, in presenting this mode1
of the proposed development of our
Cliy CUMiyUD, TYVU.u I I
rect the attention of the students
and observers of our building prob
lems, to its chief purpose.
"It is the intention of this model
to present a scheme of open fairways
and vistas, which shall be established
as areas upon which no building shall
be erected. We plead that these be
not violated, feeling that their per
petual preservation will enhance the
beauty and usefulness of every struc
ture that future growth may require.
"It is not the purpose of this model
to establish the design, size, height
or orientation of any building;
"Nor is its purpose to locate or
designate a particular building to
house any department on any site."
Where Building! Should Not Be
In accordance with this, the model
presented is more a miniature of the
landscaping for the future campus,
than a model attempting to give r
picture of the buildings that will be
erected. The Campus Planning Com
mittee has made no attempt to desig
nate what buildings shall be placed
in certain locations, nor what the
size of the various structures shall
be. Rather, it has designed its model
with the idea of pointing out where
buildings should not be built.
Additions to Campus
The model now ready for inspec
tion is 8 feet long and 7 feet wide.
The buildings and trees are from
one and one-half to two inches in
height, the scale being one inch to
thirty feet. The height of a man on
the model would be less than a quar
ter inch.
The model campus takes in all of
the ground now occupied by the city
campus, and in addition it extends tc
Sixteenth Street on the east, and to
the railroad tracks on the north
On the model, the athletic fields
are at the north end of the campus
and a group of engineering buildings
is jiist south of the stadium. This if
in conformity to the present location
oi these buildings,
A miniature library building has
oeen placed at the head of Fifteentr
Street on S. with beautiful vistar
from all four sides. To the west of
the building ia the Quadrangle,
parking similar to that leading to the
Agricultural Engineering building or
we campus of the College of Agricul
To the east of the Stadium, extend
ing from Twelfth Street to Four
teenth, i8 the Memorial Ball, an-
other vista similar to that on the Ag
Campus. In all, the model campus
k-as thirteen vistas, each equally as
beautiful as that on the Agricultural
college campus.
Statement by Mr. Seymour
The following statement by Mr.
aeymour gives an idea of what the
Campus Planning Committee is try
ing to do:
'It is out of our experience (out
of the collesre of hard knocks, for
the most part, that we form opinions
governing our own lives and direct
ing our owrrjudflrments and activities,
a"d in like manner, it is. out of ihc
experience of our University (sup
Ported by a study of the experience
of others of her kind), that we must

New'Class in Physical
Education is Arranged
For Faculty Members
An attempt to arrange a physical
education class for the faculty of
the University is being made by Dr.
Clapp, professor in the physical edu
cation department. With the new
Coliseum ample facilities are present
for the handling of recreative work
for the faculty. Dr. Clapp plans to
regulate the classes so that they will
come at the instructors' most con
venient time.
The stage of the Coliseum and the
room under the stage are equipped
as a small gymnasium, both being
considerably larger than the old
Armory. Tennis courts, handball al
leys, showers and locker rooms are
available throughout the day.
Should any of the faculty desire to
take up some recreative work in the
Coliseum, they should let Dr. Clapp
know at once, in order to get the
classes arranged and under way.
Chemistry Department
Gives Special Exams
Preliminary survey examinations
for all students beginning graduate
work in chemistry were given Friday
and Saturday. The examinations are
for the purpose of determining the
so.t of courses with which each grad
uate student should begjn. Six stu
dents from outside the state will do
graduate work in chemistry this year.

An opportunity to observe Jupiter
and its satellites will be 'given the
general public at the first open night,
Tuesday, October 12, of the Univer
sity observatory. The observatory
will be open from 7 to 10 o'clock on
the second Tuesday of each month of
the 1926-27 school year (instead of
the fourth Tuesday as it was last
year.) There will be a brief lecture
at 8 o'clock, illustrated with lantern
slides, regardless of weather condi
tions. Before and after the lecture
the telescope will be available.
Jupiter and three -satellites will be
visible early in the evening and later
the fourth satellite will also , come
into view.
Professor G. D. Swezey, University
instructor of astronomy, will give the
series of lectures. The topic of the
first lecture will be "What we mean
by Stars, Planets, and Satellites."
The series of lectures during the year
will touch upon the principal topics
with which astronomy deals and so
will serve aa a brief course in ele
mentary astronomy.

struggle, with Nebraska gaining their
yardage through the line and Mis
souri relying on the aerial route, ine
scoring was made early in the tilt,
with two of the three touchdowns
resulting from "breaks" of the game.
Husker hopes for a victory soared
high in the first few minutes of play
when Clark of Missouri fumbled and .
Stephens of Nebraska recovered on
the Mizzou 19-yard line. Howell rip
ped through the Tiger line for a first
down in four tries. In three more
plays he ploughed eight yards for
the only Nebraska touchdown. Brown
place-kicked the extra point.
Clark ia Tifer Star
Clark was the -shining light for the
Tiger squad and provided the best
play of the game when he returned
Browns punt thirty-seven yards
through the Husker team for a touch
down early in the second quarter.
Clark mad$ the second counter a few
minutes later when a partially
blocked pass bounced into bis hands
and he rushed past the Nebraska
player for a touchdown.
Stuber outclassed the field in the
kicking game. He was punting forty
yards consistently and made good on
the extra point after the first touch
down. His second try was blocked by
Stiner, but was allowed when a Ne
braska man was offside. In the latter
part of the second half he attempted
a drop-kick which went wide of the
goal posts by a few feet. .
Brown Sprints 38 Yards
Nebraska displayed a powerful of
fensive during the last half and
threatened to score on several dif
ferent occasions. Jug Brown started
the first rally with an elusive thirty-
eight yard run to the Mizrou 18-yard
lino. He was forced out of bounds
before he was stopped. The Huskers
lacked the necessary punch to make
a first down and lost the ball on the
Missouri 13-yard line. The second
march toward a touchdown started
when Raish recovered a Tiger fumble
on their 48-yard line. Marrow, Bron
son and Beck ploughed down the field
for consistent gains which failed by
only a few inches to result in a
touchdown. Other attempts fell short
when the Huskers failed to make
their first downs after pushing the
Tigers back to their lair.
"Wallie" Marrow, a side-stepping
young ball-toter, is rapidly polishing
off the rough corners of inexperience.
His performance in yesterday's game
places him on the list of Coach
Bearg's hard-hitting boys. Elmer
Holm, a valuable interference man,
is another new man who attracted
much comment in the Mizzou fracas.
Slippery Field Slows Came
The slippery field and the numer
ous penalties slowed down the game
to a considerable extent. The Husker
line showed an improvement over its
appearance in the Drake bout, but
the backfield play was ragged at
times, especially on the defense.
Before the game a delegation of
several hundred South Omaha boost
ers paraded around the field to their
special section in the west stands.
Several hundred Dads and Sons, who
were celebrating their fifth annual
Dad's Day, also filled a special sec
tion in the west stand. "Nick" Amos
