FORTNIGHTLY ART CLUB.
The Fortnightly Art Club was organized nine years ago, consisting of the lady members of the faculty and the ladies of the town. Its object was the systematic, comprehensive study of the old rflasters and their work. Year by year it has met regularly, continuing the study in various fields, both ancient and modern, until a wide scope has been carefully covered.
Outlines of study are prepared each year. Art magazines and best authorities upon paintings, sculpture, handcraft, pottery and architecture have been added to the library, thru the club, for the benefit of all persons connected with the school.
Stimulated by the inspiration gained thru this study, and desiring to share with others the result of its research, the club brings to the school once or twice each year an art exhibit, consisting of the best collection of pictures possible to be secured in this country.
In connection with the exhibit each year are found choice pieces of pottery, mosaics, carved ivory and other bric-a-brac directly from foreign countries.
The student body largely attends and derives great cultural value from the study of pictures, and from the lectures that are given each day and evening durng the exhibit.
Evidences of the work of this organization in the form of excellent pictures well framed are found everywhere in the normal school, in the homes of the village and in the school rooms of the state. In the chapel, the decoration of which the club has undertaken, great care has been exercised in the selection of appropriate subjects. At the present time a portion of the reproduction of the beautiful Parthanon frieze, embellishes the front, while at one side stands the graceful figure of Minerva, and on the other side the artistic statue of St. George.
The aesthetic education of the young men and women is unconsciously taking place as they sit. each morning, in the presence of the best work of Greek and modern sculptors. Lii.i.ian U. Stoner.

The purpose of this organization is to further the interests of athletics by organized student effort, to maintain high standards of efficiency both in scholarship and physical ability. The present association was organized in 1904.
The association has constructed the athletic field at an approximate cost of one thousand dollars. The field is largely the result of the enthusiastic efforts of Professors Porter. Howie and Whitenack.
The management of athletics is in the hands of a board comj osed of four faculty members, chosen by the president of the institution, and three student members elected by the association. Prof. Whitenack has been president of the board for seven years.
The Athletic Association is a member of the Nebraska Inter-Collegiate League for the management of all athletics. The association has. does, and always shall stand for clean athletics.
The Biological Seminar has a twofold purpose—first, to keep its members in touch with present progress in the biological sciences, and, second, to give the student a desire to follow out scientific lines of study. The student learns how literature may be turned to profit in developing an appreciative attitude toward science in general.
The Seminar is open to all students having elective work in the Biological Departnfent. The programs, occurring every two weeks, are participated in by both students and instructors, and all subjects are open for general discussions.
SENATUS POPULUSQUE ROMANUS.
The elective Latin classes maintain this organization in order to afford a background for the study of Latin bv giving opportunity for fuller enjoyment of topics of interest to Latin students than time of daily recitations permits.
Programs are designed to bring the students into closer touch with Roman life and literature and embrace Roman mythology, history, social customs, and Latin music.
The club was organized October, 1906. as the Roman Republic, the various duties of administration being performed by consuls, quaestors, praetors, etc. At present the club is under direction of a triumvirate, the modern Caesar.
