on the firing line of the First Ne
braska Mr. Boomer carried a kodak
with him until he was wounded and
forced from tho field. Mr. Reedy then
continued taking views until tho end of
the engagements in which tho No
braskans figured. They have in all over
three hundred views, which add mate
rially to tho interest of tho lecture.
These views are shown with tho aid of
a large and expensive stereoptlcon. Tho
entertainment has been receiving much
praise over tho state where it has been
given. It will be given to tho univer
sity under the management of the Pal
ladian literary society.
The Nebraskan-Hesperian: Dear
Sirs Would not a paragraph with re
gard to the new clocks in the halls and,
incidentally, giving some facts with re
gard to our university time service, be
timely? I sometimes hear of students
who think the bells ring as they used
to before they were connected with the
observatory. Possibly, the student's
watch is what is erratic.
G. D. SWEZEY.
Three new clocks have been placed
in the university halls, one in the li
brary, one in university hall and one
in Nebraska hall. They are designed
to inform the belated student whether
he must needs scurry to get to class
before the bell rings and In general tc
give the approximate time of day. Thpy
are not electrically controlled and will
not take the place of the bells. The
latter will still give the more exact
time, as they are rung by the observa
tory clock. This clock is kept very
close to the time, although In a long
spell of cloudy weather, like that just
experienced, when observations of the
stars cannot be made, its error may
amount to several seconds. Generally
It is kept within five seconds of true
time; most of the time within one or
two seconds. The largest error It hat;
had this year was fouteen and a half
seconds on October 4, when some ex
periments were being made upon the
pendulum, which made it necessary not
to disturb it. Ordinarily any small
error In the clock when retealed by ob
servations made upon the stars would
be corrected by placing small weights
on the pendulum.
