TIIVSICAT. HnUCATION WOltK.
Dr. Hastings is about, to undertake
n series of unique and interesting ex
periments throughout the state, the
results of which will be on exhibition
at the trnns-Misslssipp! exposition.
They are to bo a thorough physical
examination of tho school children
throughout the state.
The work is under the auspices f
of the District Society of the Ainerl.
can Association for the Advancement
of Physical Education. The work was
inaugurated by Dr. Porter of St. Louis
who 1ms made exhaustive investiga
tions and has reached may interest
ing conclusions, which further i lives
tlgntion seems destined to affirm.
This society has had printed four
cards. Two of them contain ques
tions on Hie physical appearance,
form and development of the children
mnlc nnd female taken separately.
Another, intended for the parents,
has questions concerning the family,
while the fourth is for the instruc
tion of the observers. ICnch child is
given a card to take home to lie filled
out by its parents nnd returned the
next day. The children are arranged
in the order in which they sit at
their desks, girls and boys separately.
The observers stand in line. "Each ob
server has one particular -observation
or measurement to make on each
child. The children ikiss along in line
before the observers. In this way it
is expected to handle one pupil a
Parents are assured that no names
will be published in connection with
individual measurements and that no
personal defects will be pointed out
before the other children.
Those measurements will afterward
be classified and from the uveiagas ob
tained, charts and tables will be made
out, and will be placed on exhibition
nt the trans-Mississippi reposition
Those charts will show the tyi of
each age for the state of Nebraska,
viz: just what the normal child should
be and wil show the proper physical
basis for intellectual advancement.
Tor instance, Dr. Porter, in one exper
iment, took pupils eleven years of age,
throughout nil grades from tho first to
to the eighth, and found that the av
erage height nnd weight increased
regularly from those in the lower to
the higher grades. This connection
between physical and inU'lleotuul
growth Is one of in.in.v interesting
and Instructive result whl.h those

Preparations are being made on a

game at Lawrence shows how well the
teams are matched and a hut tic royal
is eonlideutly looked for. Monday be

I'nivorsity fans will turn out to this,

by the .students. Tickets will bo on
sale Monday for only 2"i cents, al
though all neighboring rnivorsities
charge .Ml cents and Manager ltyon has
been advised to do the same, but he
decided in view of the recent expenses
of the students to place the admission
fee within tlio reach of all and count
on the loyalty and Interest of the
school to held pay the expenses.
NO FXIIIIIITIOX DIMM..
Owing to the ii.r.ials Ci, war has
made on the b.iti'ioii, tli recent
changes necessitated by the enlist
ments and the general unsettled air
among the cadets, it has been decided
not to have competitive drill this year,
As the companies have all been chang
ed over so recently, no company spirit
or entlnisiain exists, ami the usual in
terest taken in the competition would
bo lacking. I'mler the circumstances
the decision to give it up seems to
have been wisest.
For much the same reason the $2(1
prize offered by the Fanners and Mer
chants Insurance company to the best
drilled cadet in thebntlllon. will not
lie contested for this spring. As inan.v
of the best drilled cadets in the school
would not be present it was not con
sidered fair to the company to decide
tlu matier as at first intended. For
Hint reason the contest will lie post
poned. Owing to the near approach of the
end of drill. Major True lias uooldod
not to fill the vacancies eieised by the
enlistment of Captains llcndy and
Haggard. The first lien oiiaiits of
their companies will eoinininil for the
rest of the vear.
