Speaker For
Arts Meeting
Wins Prizes
Ernest L. Blumenschein, painter, of
Taos, New Mexico, will be one of
the principal speakers at the west
ern convention of the American Fed
eration of Arts, which will be held in
Lincoln. Blumenschein was born in
Pittsburgh, the son of W. L. Blumen
schein, the composer and chorus con
ductor. He received his art educa
tion at New York and Paris and ac
quired repute early as one of Amer
ica's best illustrators.
When he was 43 years old he was
able to give up commercial art and
devote himself entirely to painting.
His paintings have won ten awards,
the highest of these being the silver
medal at- the Sesqui-centennial at
Philadelphia, which was awarded
him in a competition with nearly 2,
000 painters in the United States.
ne is one of the foremost painters
in the Taos school of painting which
is regarded as one of the most signi
ficant art movements in the history
of American painting. The Taos
country in New Mexico offers an
abundance of native material and
the "Taos School" has applied new
methods of interpretation to these
essentially American subjects.

dertakers go to football game is to

Former Nebraskan Give
To Dr. Wolcott
J. A. Casteel, '20, of New Orleans,
La., has recently donated a number
of slides of the Filaria parasite to
the department of zoology, is it an
nounced by Dr. Robert F. Wolcott,
head of the department. This par
asite is peculiar to the South, and
the slides will be of great help in the
microscopic study of parasitic life.
Mr. Casteel, who is now employed
by the United States public health
service, in sending the Filaria slides,
has written that he has available
some very good studies of Malaria,
and will send slides of these if they
are desired. Dr. Wolcott has noti
fied him that these will be very ac
ceptable, as the collection of slides
of this kind here is unsatisfactory
both fro:,: the standpoint of number
and variety. i

Fast Pace Led by
Cause of Much Unfavorable Comment
By Dorothy Nott
"Among the many evils resulting
fram the fast spirit of the age, is its
effect upon our schools. Scholars
cannot spend time to study and ex
pect teachers to do it for them."
Upon reading the above sentences
modern youth marks them as one of
the tiresome tirades which conserva
tive older folk are always making
about this generation. The com
plain is heard frequently, today,
that students are not seriously inter
ested in their school work, so the
quoted statement sounds typical of
1927. But shockingly enough, it
happens that this was not written
about the present young people, who
are supposed to be living such a
vwift pace, but about their grand
parents, who it seems, were not so
slow themselves. ,The quotation is
taken from a school report from a
small New Hampshire town, under
date of 1856.
Students of the present dsy are
often made to feel, by both parents
and the school, that they are quite
the worst edition of the human race
yet published. But another report
in this survey shows that our be

So centuries roll on, new genera.

Modern educators are realizing that
fact. Educational institutions pro
fess to train teachers who have char

nature, and a genuine interest in
young people. A prominent teacher
once said that our schools have al
ways served as ballast, giving stabil
ity in turbulent times. The aim of
the school, through sane methods,
and morally responsible teachers, is
often said to be to help boys and
girls to develop into well-balanced
men and women.

Skeleton Is
Subject For
Recent Work
Homer B. Latimer, instructor in
the department of zoology here until
last year, has recently published a
paper entitled, "The Post-Natal
Growth of the Chicken Skeleton,"
which is largely based on experi
ments conducted in the biology lab
oratories of the University of Ne
Professor Latimer took his A. B
degree at the University of Minne
sota in 1907, and his master's there
in 1908. His term oi instruction
here began in 1916. The work on
chicken skeletons was begun during
his last few summer vacations at
Minnesota and was completed here
The paper is dated September, 1927,
and contains a number of diagrams
and illustrations.
Professor Latimer has made many
of his observations upon oven-dried
skeletons, which he prepared by
scraping the bones as clean as pos
sible, and then drying in an oven.
The studies were made over the
whole period of growth of the fowl
and covered both Bres. It was
