' While Lincoln la surrounded by colleges
and universities the one which ai-pesU
to all people ef the state irrespective of
creed or position, la the state university.
Nebraska people are proud of their uni
versity. It make ilttie difference
whether they live along the Missouri river
ou the east or along the lesser streams
ef the west, there is but one school and
that la the state university.
When the founders of the University
of Nebraska placed the school on a bar
four blocks of ground thsy had little Idea
of what the growth of the Institution
would be before half a century would
pass. Even before a quarter of a century
had elapaed It was seen that In but a
ehort time more room would be needed,
end In due course of time an additional
block and a half was purchased adjoin
ing the present s!te for an athletln field
nd the old field taken on which to ereet
additional needed buildings. Now again
eomea up the proposition ef more room,
and this fall the peop.e will decide the
all Important question ef whether to pur
chase more ground adjoining the present
site Or move to the state university farm
two mile distent, where the state already
owns a large tract of several hundred
l-atad HelldJiiKe Owaed.
Counting the experimental station at
different places In the state and land
earned for university purposes. It It esti
mated that the real estate owned by the
Ut Is worth at the present time U.7v,
311 la Addition to this It Is estimated
that the present alu of building en
the city tuunpus is tTttill. The buildings
of the indlcul college locatml ut Omaha
are eetimated to be worth $1110,000. At the
Curtis sub-agricultural uho the build
ings are worth 7I,7')0. On the university
farm the buildings ar- worth 3.'1.9S4,
wlilic the Improvements are J.17 mora.
At the North Platte sub-station the liiilltl

of tho property of the state listed as unl
vritlty property, and does not cover the
orlitlnsl cost of the buildings, some of
which ate hot In a perfect condition and
which may have to bn replaced as the
years come. The more recently erected

are fire 1 proof.
Medleal Nehool In Omaha,
On of the very Important adjuncts of
the state university la lo"ated at Omaha,
the nedlral college. This college Is
recognised throughout the country as one
of the best medical schools In the United
State. Th last report of the commit
tee of the American Association of Medi
cal colleges, placed this college In the
class A list, a distinction given to but
very few medical colleges in this country.
Th new fioo.OOO building which Is now
nearly If not quite completed, will arid
much to the efficiency of the college as
It will enable th regents of the state
unlvtrslty to transfer two years' work
more of the medical work to the Omaha
colkge, thua giving thta part of the
school tho final four years of th sis
yrais' academic medlctU course. ,
Another very Important addition to the
rtate university during very recent years
Ih the new telescope worth about It, SCO.
This la decidedly A Nebraska telescope
for moot of th work waa done by Ne
braska students In the department of
mechanical engineering under the direc
tion of the professor In charge. The work
was don under th supervision of Prof
O. D. Oweiey. Th lens Is a twelve-Inch
objective and was ground by Ir. Ml nick
of Nebraska, so that the telescope Is a
Nebraska product In every sense of the
t'Blversltr stsiel Crepe.
The crops ef Nebraska to a great ex
tent governs th attendance at the uni
versity, though not Always being a sure
things to figure on. Last year crops
were not considered lh beet by considerable.-yet
the attendance at the university
was over 100 more than on the previous
year, the Chancellor Avery believes with
the outlook this year that the attendance
will be much larger than In' any previous
Iaat year the registrations numbered
4. 121 and out of th university was gradu
ated students In the different degree
The prospects for the coming year are
very good. If the crop conditions are
to be a criterion on which one may Judge
of what can be n pec ted in the way of
new registrations or rather registration
