The library of the European history
seminar of the University has Just re
ceived as a gift from Miss Helen C. Har
wood, a book of high value and interest
to students of French history. It is a
history of the Bastile from the building
of this famous Parisian prison in J370 to
its memorable destruction early in the
French revolution. Mies Harwood be
came interested in this subject during
her studies under Professor Fling a few
years ago and later while pursuing her
researches in Paris she secured this
book. It is issued in a sumptuous edi
tion by the city authorities of Paris and
no expense has been spared in the re
production of first hand historical ma
terial both in letter press and fac
simile. Plans are being made to establish in
connection with the Domestic Science
Department a lunch stand for serving
mid-day meals. While this is a new
feature at the Uuiversity of Nebraska,
it has been successfully tried in connec
tion with the high schools in the larger
cities. Hot lunches will be served at
nominally cost prices, the idea being
not to run it for profit, but for the bene
tit of those Btudents who are compelled
to take cold lurches and it is hoped
that the patropage wiil be such as to
make this feature a permanent one.

appropriate remarks and a short pro

and recitations, after which the evening
