TO ASCERTAIN SAFETY
Library, U Hall, Nebraska
Hall to Be Examined
By Omaha Firm.
That the structural safety of
three University buildings on the
city campus will be studied by
engineers was the decision by the
regents of the school Saturday
morning. They decided to employ
the firm of Latenser & Sons of
Omaha to make an examination
and report on the structural safety
of University Hall and Nebraska
Hall for classroom purposes and
of the library as to the load
carried on its varied floors.
University Hall, the oldest build
ing on the campus, was erected
in 1869 as a four-story bulding
with a tower that extended three
additional stories. Due to grave
.structural weakenesses, all but the
first floor was removed in 1925.
Nebraska Hall, built in 1887, is
another of the older buildings.
In 1925 the third floor of this
building was removed in the
interest of safety. The library
building was erected in 1891.
Hundreds of thousands of books
are carried on its upper floors.
None of the three buildings are

Tigers gave the Huskers a diffi
cult afternoon, but it was evident
that the game dragged along slow

seemed to show any desire to
score. The Bengals had that "do
or die" spirit in the opening quar

laid plays go for no gain, it took
the punch out of them.
High spot of the game occurred
in the third quarter, and the le

be disputed for some time. It hap

shovel pass to another Tiger back.
