Lincoln, Nkii., Jan. 14, 1901.
To all tho Students in the University
Owing to the unhappy prevalence of
contagious diseases all students are
kindly admonished and urged carefully
to guard their health, avoiding all un
necessary oxposuro, and to consult phy
sicians at onco if they at any time
find themselves the subject of unusual
or suspicious symptoms painful in na
ture. This observation is sent out purely
as a measure oi cauuon. There is no
occasion for fear, but there Is reason
E. Benj. Andkews,
Tho experiments now being carried
on in tho greenhouses under the super
vision of Mr. Hedgecock are progress
ing with considerable success. Tho ex
periment is for the purpose of deter
mining the amount of modification of
plant tsructuro duo to light, moisture,
and different grades of soil. Temper
ature cannot enter into the experi
ments in the greenhouses on account
of tho constant heat. In theso exper
iments the wild plants of the state arc
used, and at the present time there are
between two and three hundred varie
ties. For more delicate work in the
same lino Professor Fossler and Mr.
Hedgecock have erected glass cases in
tho windows, of tho workroom on the
first floor of science hall. These cases
are divided in four compartments eacn,
so that the temperature, moisture,
light, and atmosphere conditions can
bo regulated. Some Interesting re
sults may be expected from this work.
A valuable machine for use in the de
termination of the intensity of light
has recently been constructed by Mr.
Hedgecock for use In botanical exper
iment work. Tho purpose of the ma
chino is to make comparisons of shade
and light in greenhouses with full sun
light out doors. Tho main feature of
the machine is the use of photographic
paper, which although not a new idea
for this kind of work, has never been
used to any extent. It Is believed that
this is the only machino of its kind in
this country. Like inventions have
been made in Germany but never as
complete as this one. In tho use of
the instrument tho experiments has
to deal with tho error duo to temper
ature, but by careful determinations,
this feature may bo of little conse
quence. Y. M. C. a.
Tho interest in regard to the com
ing visit of Mr. C. C. Mlchenor con
tinues to increase. Tho date has now
been definitely settled as February 28.
The young men of the university are
to be congratulated in that they have
been ablo to secure such a man, Mr.
Micheners time is so fully taken up
that it is a difficult matter to get a
small portion of it. It is safe to say
that thoro is no man in America that
is raoro popular among college men
and no man has mado such a study of
college life, his address upon "Tho

From all appearances tho schools of
the state and especially tho normal
schools will come in for a full share
of tho legislation in the present ses
sion of the legislature.
State Superintendent Fowler has pre
sented another free high school meas
ure elaborating a scheme to provide
free instruction to non-resident pupils
in high school districts.
Mr. Lane has presented a bill which
provides for tho purchase of tho West
ern Normal buildings at Hawthorne
and the establishment of a normal
school" under tho same regulations and
management as the Peru Normal. For
which purpose an appropriation of
$55,000 is asked.
Senator Allen introduced a normal
school bill which calls for an appro
priation of ?110,000 for tho building
of two normal schools, ono of which
shall bo located not more than 85 miles
and the other not moro than 175 miles
from the present normal at Peru.
Another bill has been introduced
which provides for two additional
normal schools with the intention of
locatlDg them In tho middle and west
ern parts of the state.
Tho Lincoln Academy has been
equipped with a physics laboratory
costing $700. It is tho most modern
and complete in every respect of any
academy or college in tho state. The
instruments wero purchased and tho

vision of Dr. Brace of the physics de
