Y. M. C. A. mid Y. W. C. A. Biblo Study.
The courses of Bible study as arranged for the present
year will be as follows:
A general Old Tcstamcni course, which aims at a system
atic, comprehensive, and fundamental knowledge of the Old
Teste menl as preliminary to future studies in history, biog
raphy, geography, and institutions. In this Miss Mary Tre
main will be the leader. The classes meet at 9:30 each Sat
urday morning in room 16.
This will be followed by a course in Hebrew poetry, car
ried by Professor Sherman, being a study of the bible as lit
erature. It will be the purpose of the course to take up the
poetical books of the Bible, such as the book of Job, and the
Psalms, and treat them from the standpoint of sympathetic
Next will be a general New Testament course covering
the lives and times of Christ and the apostles. The aim will
be to secure a general survey of New Testament history and
biography together with the conditions, geographical, social,
and political, that prepared for the mission of Christ and fur
nished the concrete elements of the field in which he and his
apostles worked. This course will be given by Mr. Hodg
man. Professor Taylor will give a course on the life of Christ
according to St. John. This will be a somewhat detailed
study of the life and personal character of Jesus on the induc
tive method, using John's gospel as the sole text.
Professor Hussey will give a course on the career and
character of St. Paul as shown in the Acts of the apostles
and in Paul's letters; an attempt to get a clear and defined
idea of the personality of this great missionary and of the
times and conditions that produced the msui.
The studies will close with a short course by Professor
Fling on the ethics of Christ; being an attempt to determine
from' Christ's teachings and recorded actions his attitude
towards various ethical questions, such as property, the fam
ily, citizenship, etc. A comparison of the material thus
obtained will be made with previous ethical teachings of the
Hebrews and the Greeks (especially the Stoics) in order to
determine what is new and what is re emphasizing the prin
ciples previously declared, and an attempt will be made to
apply this material and modern ethical problems.
Each of these courses will consist of about five short talks
with dictations, followed by discussion. No sources will be
used other than the books of the Old and New Testaments.
It is understood, of course, that his is not a part ot the uni
versity work proper; but is offered voluntarily by members of
the faculty, at the lequcst of the two Christian associations
ol the university. The couiscs arc open to all students of
the university interested in such work.
There may be some change in the order of this work, but
the course as given is substantially that at present proposed.
Till UNIVERSITY JDUKIfcG VACATION.
WI111L Was Dnnn at Ilonu mid Abroad 'Where- Some of
the Faculty and Students Spent Summer.
In none of the depaitments of the university has there
been a standstill during vacation. From chancellor to jan
itor all have been busy in preparing for the opening of the
mest successful year in the history of the institution. Improv
ments, repairing, and cleaning have kept all in charge work
ing to their .ttmost capacity.
The east end of Nebraska hall has been placed in thorough
repair. The walls have been strengthened and the east
front remodeled. At the south end of the electric power
house a large addition has been built for the use of the man
ual training school. This will give the university a good
start in a direction which it has long needed to advance
upon. It is not very large but will be increased to meet the
demands of the department. The $30,000 appropriated by
last state legislature has been expended in laying the founda
tions of thebeautiful $100,000 l'braiy building. The rough
patch of unfinished brick at the south end of the chemical
laboratory has been covered up. Two medallions of Wil
hebn Schcclc, 1742-86, and Lcopolt Gmclm, 1788-1853, have
been placed in position and that long needed finishing touch
has been supplied.
In the general cleaning up many new things have ben
discovered. After removing a quarter of an inch ol dirt, it
was found that the gallery of the chapel was painted in three
different colors. The walls of the same place were found to
have been of a different color to that which they have worn
for several years.
Some changes in rooms have also been made. The
chancellor has traded, with profit to himself, the rooms
formerly occupied by Professor Little, for the room he used
to occupy. One of the rooms he has had fixed up as a pri
vate office. He can now attend to private matters without
being interrupted unnecessarily. The other room is occu
pied by Miss Smith, the registrar, jointly with the chancel
lor's stenographer, Miss Mable Tuttle. In the steward's
office, Mr. Dales has moved into the room formerly occupied
by MNs Tuttle, where, by shutting the door, he can smoke
his favorite Havana without anyone being the wiser. Max
Wcstermann will receive his friends at the little wicket as
usual. Professor Fossler will at times occupy the room
which has been used by the Historical society for a news
paper file room. In Grant hall an office has been fixed up
for Miss Wilder for her use as instructor of phys'cal develop
ment. The bowling alley has also been put in first-class
condition. Cleaning and dusting have been but a small part of
the work done in the library. It has been arranged on the
Dewey plan, and is under the superintendence of Miss
The campus at the present time is the pride of both old
and new students. Beautiful flowers arranged in tasty
designs adorn and brighten it as it never has been before.
