NEBRASKA'S BIG UNIVERSITY
Iti Twenty-Seven Buildings Are
Outward Evidence of Marvel
ous Internal Activity.
MANY OTHER SPLENDID SCHOOLS
The triteness of a truism Is In the
statement that the University of Ne
braska is a great institution, nut every
iNebraskan Is triad to make this statement
and to repeat It and reiterate it.
The University of Nebraska Is only
forty-five years old, yet it ranks with
much venerable Institutions as the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania.
Its grounds are fully as large as the
Pennsylvania institution, its Instructors
are of as high standing, its courses are
(fully as complete. Its location Is far
Better, its grounds more beautiful.
The numbor of students in the Nebraska
Institution Is now about equal to the
number attending the university founded
"by B. Franklin. Nebraska's university,
(moreover, has greater liberty than Penn
sylvania's, for in the latter most of the
(courses are open only to men. At Ne
braska all courses are open Just as freely
to women as to men and there is prac
tically no tuition fee to pay.
The University of Nebraska started
Ih 1K70, giving a few courses in the clas
sics and the liberal arts. It has gone on
from that until today It teaches all the
(sciences as well, and all the professions
The material brick and mcrtar and
(tone and wood equipment of this great
Institution Is imposing in Itself and Is
the outward sign of the academic worth
nd the proof of a usefulness In the field
f education that has been demonstrated
throughout the yoars of its eiiVence.
On its spacious campus, loce.tcd !ii the
seart of the city of Lincoln, are seven
teen large and imposing buildings most
f them in good repair clustered closely
together on a plot of ground four blocks
In area, which at this time of the year
is a veritable labyrinth of mottled flower
fceds, shrubs, lawns and treett
At the state farm are ten "equally com-
Piodloua and serviceable structures slt
ated on S20 acres of ground that with
ftxtensive cultivation Is rapidly becoming
pie garden spet of the state.
In these buildings are class-rooms,
libraries, laboratories and museums
Iverythlng that Is needed to educate 4.000
Students a year.
To meet the university's urgent demand
'or more room to accommodate Its ln
ireaslng number of students, the legisla
ure has authorized a three-quarter-mill
evy for six years, which has provided In
ill $2,000,000 for university Improvement,
ind which Is now available for the unl
Still Greater Growth.

eon spent In enlarging its equipment and
creasing Us usefulness for the people
t the state almost stifles the Imaglna-
Internally the university gives every
ldenee of progress. It is doing better
irork every year. It is constantly raising
Its educational standards, and the fact
that it Is doing so Is recognized by com
peting universities of standing and repute.
Requirements for admission into the uni
versity are higher than ever before; re
tirements for graduation, still higher.
Numbered among Its faculty are men of
recognlied ability as teachers and not
l few who have a national reputation as
authorities In their several lines; such
pwvelnent scholars and men of science aa
Dean I A. Sherman, the lato Dean
Charles Bessey, and Dean O. V. P. Stout;
and such noted Jurists aa Dean W. Q.
Hastings of the college of law, and Dr.
Kdwln Maxey, a well known authority
pa International law.
The attention of the technical world
Was recently attracted to the University
M Nebraska by the addition to Its equip
tnent of one of the largest and moat up-to-date
engineering laboratories in the
west. The latest Improvement is a beau
tiful and spacious building to be occu
pied exclusively by the polotical science
nd law departments.
The University of Nebraska not only
furnishes Instruction to those who come
to its doors seeking it, but italao ex
tends the advantage of higher education to
those who cannot afford the time and ex
pense of years In college. Through cor
respondence study, public lectures, hlpn
school debates and the publication of
pamphlets devoted to general information
and welfare the university prepares many
persons at home for lives of greater uno
fulness. One hundred students are now
doing regular university work and re
ceiving regular university credit by em
ploying their spare hours at home under
the direction of the University of Ne
braska extension department.
I alveralty rablicatloae. 1
The university also turns out a vast
amount of knowledge for general con
sumption by the people or the state In tho
form of publications. Besides the annual
calendar and other periodic bulletins,
there are eleven university prpers de
oted to all kinds of soi.ntlfi' literary
ana educational interests, 'rne various
student publications and the published
reports of the Until Ic branches of the
University, especially those of cngineer-
xhe and agilculture, constitute no small
lert of the great educational service the
university is rendering the state.
- This year the indications are there will
lie an even larger registration at this
iirreat institution of the state than ever
before, but all provisions have been made
u9 the adequate accommodation ot ail
who may knock and enter these halls of
SCHOOL OW.Kl HY WOMAN.
One of Nebraska's Oldest Business
Colleges Conducted by Fair Bex.
A young woman Is the owner and man
ager of one of the most successful busi
ness schools in the country, the Van
Kant school, located on ths second floor
of tho Weed building, Eighteenth and
Famani streets. It has ft day school for
young women and an evening school for
young men and women.
Miss Ion-; C. Duffy Is this younir wo
man. Sha Is herself a graduate of the
school, finishing her coursw there In 18S9.
Following her graduation Hhe became
stenographer and later bookkeeper in the
local office of a typewriter company.
Her ability raised her quk'kly to the posi
tion of assistant manager, a place which
frhe held for several years until she found
still larger fields for her ability and
energy. As a pupil Miss Duffy observed
the methods of the Van Hant school; as
an employer of stenographers, she meas
ured the proficiency of its grxd'iates; and
as a director of a clerical employment
bureau, she learned In what high regard
the school and Its graduates wore held by
business men. Therefore, 'vhen Mr. Van
Bant offered his school for sale In 1910,
Mis Duffy waa a ready purchaser and
becamo sole owner and .nuiagor.
"If this school were conducted purely
aa a norma) training school," said Miss
Duffy, "we could place Ml cur ;,rad'iates
In good positions as teachers of stenog
raphy, so well nre they grounded.
"A sclnntlflc business .raining brings
double opportunities and doubly certain
results to teachers. Vhe teacher Is as
sured of employment and satisfactory
salary either as teacher or stenographer.
It is a well-known fact that competent
business t,chool teachers draw much larg
er salaries than those paid in puMlc
A beautiful illustrated booklet about
the school has been published for the
Information of prospective students. It Is
printed on fine coated paper and pro
fusely illustrated, having pictures of A. C.
Van Sant, the founder. Miss Duffy, the
owner and a number of the teachers as
well as various charming scenes from
the school rooms. The frontispiece shows
a view of the streets from the school
showing the court house grounds and
view down Jatnam street.
