Why shouldn't we imitate?
This question may well bo asked in
view of tho advice given by Willa Si
bcrt Cather, distinguhcd Nebraska
author, in her lecture here.
"It seems to mo as 1 travel out
through tho great middle west, the
people are trying to imitate New
York," Miss Cather said. Her ob
serving eyes have seen the smaller
emes iiping me jri'iuer. .turn suu
pleads for development of individu
ality. If New Yoik is successful and truly
great, would it not be proper to copy
that city's industry, gaiety, serious
ness and sadness? Should wo not
even imitntc a gieat personality?
Decidedly not. Imitations are nev
er the original. And counterfeits arc
an abomination. Monkeys imitate; so
do childien until they glow up and
learn to reason. Intelligence seeks
the cause and tiie. to discover prin
ciples. ' Where theie is complete
agreement between an individual's
standaids and those of his community,
it is proper for him to conform. But
he cannot agree with custom that is
opposed to his essential ideas of what
i- light without becoming an im
The pioper person seeks full ex
pression of the essential qualities of
ins r-eing. it a community or even
the world docs not gie him room, he
is apt to be called as improper per
son. But so long as ho remains sin-
ccie and devoted to the standard of
what he considers correct, he is
proper to himself even if he is not to
the community standard.
To men who arc really pioper, the
race owes whatever progress it has
made. The so-called "proper" perron,
who bows to conventional modes of
conduct because it is considered right,
regardless of whether it is, is among
the host of imitators who contribute
nothing to progress.
When the race, the community or
the individual becomes more interest
ed in discovering principles that arc
eternal, many old customs will bo
reverenced more highly. Many will be
abandoned ana viewed as moss
grown ruins of the medieval age.
The desire must be to discover the
spirit that made men, cities and na
tions great. And again tradition
must be challenged in tho reputation
it has given outstanding men. The
individualist travels a rugged road.
Perhaps it is best so. The imitator
of others may travel a safer and
easier road, but he is not entitled to
wear the crown jewels.
Miss Cather, as Omaha had an op
portunity to learn during her short
visit, practices what she preaches. She
has the courage to be simply and
frankly herself. She proclaims the
truth as she believes it, serenely in
different whether her angle of vision
be that of the multitude or not. She
docs not strive to make "a good im
pression" in the conventional sense.
She would scorn to resoit to protec
tive coloration. Her passion is to ex
press herself, to leveal, as .she sec
it, human life with its joys and sor
rows, its frailities and beauty, its
it, human life with its joys and sor-
needs, its aspirations, its rights that
dignify it, honestly nnd with candor.
It is this essential integrity of
mind and soul that has made it possi
ble for Willa Cather to do work worth
while, woik that will live. Tho world
is surfeited with people who do not
euro to bo themselves, who aicafiaid
to tiu.st their own mindr, who lot
othcid do their th'nking for them, and
legulate their lhing for thorn, and
form their flubby character for
them. Whcthor writers or what not,

and truth depends on those who know
themselves and are themcches, who

Nebraska may well be proud of
Willa Cather. She is sprung from its
soil. She was taught m its school.
Her soul was given tetiuc and form
on its sweeping plain;, under 'its
clear skies, in contact with the hardy
pioneers who .subdued its frontier..
