A LIBRARY INTRUDER.
Unexpected Visitor Gets Into Library
Tho library "children" were made
to "laugh and play" yesterday fore
noon when a superannuated "lamb,"
with dangerous looking horns, strollod
into the room defiantly bearing tho
label "Iron Sphinx." Some enterpris
ing students had apparently captured
tho wayward fugitive, affixed the label
tg It, and gently thrust It thru tho
swinging doors. The animal manifest
ed some signs of embarrassment ns it
slowly strode up the center aisle, gaz
ing from right to left apparently hop
ing to recognize the sympathetic fea
tures of tho legendary Mary.
He had not maneuvered )ong when
the general buzz In the room attracted
tho attention of tho head 'librarian,
who promptly pursued the Intruder. A
short but spirited race around one of
the tables ensued, after which tho in
nocent was finally led from tho room
by the, horns, much' to tho umusement
of the spectators.

Development of Modern Clvllizsktloh
Complexity of Modern Life All
Men Not Created Equal.
Prof. Nathan Bernstein of tho Phys
ics department of tho Omaha High
School" gave a fine address upon tho
subject, of "A Now. Ideal" at Convoca
tion yesterday morning. Ho spoke of .
ldoals as a part of our own lives, and
showed how tho ancients had devel
oped along these lines.
Institutions of law wore Inhorltod
from tho Romans, who wore creators
and masters of logal customs, It was
Romo's mission' to givo laws to' tho
Avholo world. Grecco had an Ideal;
that of art and tho cultivation of
beauty. Socrates had awnkoned tho
Athonians to a higher appreciation' of
life and then there awaited him tho
cup of hemlock, but his works lived
after him. Thd Jews gav6 to the world
tho highest conception of'Gdd and the
great teacher .Tobus Christ. Somo
wrltor has said that tho Jews aro tho
only Christians in Europe. Cortaln jt
is that they havo given us tho BIblo
upon which tho destiny of our
country restB, ahd In thlB great book
aro found tho germs of every science
and art. Altho tho Jows have been
called tho '"scrapogoat" of mankind,
the mission of Israel is not yot fuK
filled. Greeks, Romans and Jews aro
all a part of this growth". The first
two gave their lives for it, tho third
gave tho very best of what It liad,
To Bay tliatmodorn civilization' Is
complex puts It v6ry mildly. We per? '
haps realize' that .this Is astfcnu6usr '
life; things are continually .liapbenr
ing and wo aro a part of it and uildoi
its influence. But. wo read, the fUjtuify

ent. Among the youth of today aro thoJ.

Individual It is bad to 'separate' man
from his fellows.. Tho Ideal should
bo one of friendly and harmonious co-. .
operation of -classes, Jand union In a
social body. Shall the-forces of union
triumph over the forces of dlslntcgrar
tioa? Tho answer lies with us. M,
To bo patriotic is not alone to, die for.
our pountry, .but to live for. qup coun
try. Loyalty to college is, in embryo,
what later stands for loyalty to count
try, .Some stamp should be placed,
upon the genius of our' age other than
that .of commercialism, which should,
occupy. Its' proper subordinate place,.
Ideals are social facts andVtho college,
or university should bo tho socia

Ideals. Fraternities, athletics and,,col-,;
