Now there is one place at least where the people of Lin coln can assemble and a place which will comfortably seat the largest gath erings. The new auditorium is very nearly completed. This building is the result of an enterprise taken up among the business men of Lincoln, each man placing a certain amount of capi.al in the building and thereby holding a pro portionate amount of shares. The building has about double the seating capacity of any other building in the city, thus giving It much value. Lin coln has never had a suitable place to hold the many gatherings wnich take place within her limits, although many societies and orders congregate here for their state and interstate meetings. Many more and larger ones will now come since such a desirable place has been secured. Another im-j portant feature In favor of the audi- great wooden arches which, based on the ground, extend from side to side. Above the stage in the rear end, the roof being drawn down, has the appear ance o an Immense funnel. On either side of the stage and extending below are roofns, and just beyond on either side extend from the basement two im mense chimneys nbout ten feet above the stage. As you look down the stage to the front of the building you see on either side of the entrance all the com mittee rooms, above which the gal lery extends. The gallery extends from either side of the stage, making a complete circuit of the entire hall. It is supported on braces extending from the base of the arches. Above and below the gallery between the arches are windows, making plenty of light for the room; also in the front above the, gallery are windows. The seats are tae movable opera chairs, which can be placed in any position and made to fold. & && & You Want the Finest We Have it torium is that it -will afford a place to ' to plav, froldthe exercises of the state uniyer- CHANGE IN ATHLETIC MANAGE MENT. The following rules have been pro posed for latification by Stanford and the University of California; The foot ball season shall be short ened. so that the last game instead of being played on Thanksg.vlng day shall bo played not later than the sec ond Saturday in November. Second, that the coach must be a graduate of the university for which he serves. He may be assisted by non graduates, but to no one may a salary be paid. Third, that a list of eligible players shall be exchanged by the cha.rmen of the facul:y athletic committees instead of by the managers and captains of the teams, as heretofore. The object of this Is to prevent any possible trad ing of ineligible players. Fourth, no person receiving a salary from the university shall be eligible && H li- 'fr in IK lf T Jl 'ft Jft 'h Zfi Jf! sity.

SUPPLIES addresses and the commencement ' kent in qtnrk If you don't week of intellectual festivities could only be enjoyed by a comparatively few, owing to the lack of a place large enough to seat those who wished to partake. The auditorium is situated on the block whose west side borders on Thir teenth street and its north side on M street The building fates Thirteenth street and occupies the entire north west Quarter of the block from the alley north except about fort; feet bor dering on 31 street, which is to remain for a park. As the building is ap proached from the east, going west on 31 street, it looks like an immense animal, something on the snail order. The arched roof forms the back, which draws toward a focus about thirty feet from the rear end at an angle of forty five degrees, thus forming on the inner side a funnel-shaped sound rebounder. From the rear end extends the ani mal's tail, the chimney, and to the center of its back a small shell is at tached, the cupola, adding somewhat to the beauty of this magnificent sliell. There will also be noticed the horns of the animal extending from the fix tures on the front wall an"i the arch above. The front wall, the head, which ex tends some feet beyond the arched back, stares at you from its numerous eyes, the windows. The main door in the center aad the two side doors are the animal's mouths. The arched back forms a quarter moon above the pro jecting head. As you enter the main door you pass through the lobby, from beyond -which you behold the spacious hall. The roof is upheld by seven see what you want ask for' it::::::::::::::: University Book Co.
