FOR, STUDENTS' INTERESTED IN
New Organization to Further Interest
Among College Students First
Paper' of Intercollegiate League.
Considerable Interest Is being
roused in the colleges thruput the'coiin
try In ari "intercollegiate Civic
'League" formod for the purposo of
spreading among college people a
closor Intimacy with timely and per
tinent questions relating to matters of
government. This league is represen
ted at Yale by the "Yale City Govern
ment Glub," at Michigan by the "Uni
versity of Michigan Civic Club," and
at a number of the other big Institu-
lion's, by " organizations of various
names. The officers of the league are
anxious to seo formed a .similar club
at Nebraska and If sufficient Interest
were manifested, there would be no
difficulties In .the way
Following Is part of an article
written by Representative De Armond
of Missouri on plans for the amend
ment of the constitution and written
for the Civic League:
It Is desirable to amend the Fed
eral Constitution? Is it deslrablo
even to consider the subject of amend
ing the Constitution?
"I will assume, as It appears to me
one "may safely assume, that a majority
of those who have thought about the
matter at all unite in the conclusion
that by amendment the Constitution
could be Improved.
"The Congress will not propose any
amendment of Importance a glance
at history and even a hurried view of
present conditions surely must banish
every doubt about that. It Is a gener
ation since the Congress proposed any
amendment, and yet thore has been
ceaseless agitation for. amendment.
"There Is but onoway to amend the
Constitution, or oven to fjfaVspbqr con
sideration of the subject of amend
ment, and that Is through the action
or State -Legislatures, moving upon
the' Congress for a Constitutional Con
ventlori. T'No amendment can be made- so
long as so many I might say few as
twelve . Slates withhold their indorse
ment. Should not this pregnant fact
aionVbo sufficient to banish the fears
of the timid; resolve the doubts of
those who are undlclded, and 'stimu
late the courage and.arouse the energy
of those who would' employ the living,
Instead of Invoicing' ever and 'only tlie
guidance of! the' dead?
"Even If the Convention were to
come and, go without a single chahgo in
the Constitution, still It would not
have: been created In valnt"A center
ing.,of "thought "Upon the "Constitution
nnd iipon propositions for amendment,
and their serious consideration, sure
to attend and .follow the amendment
movement, could hardly fall to bo pro
ductive of great goqd, Perhaps but
few amendments would bo proposed,
and fewer still would bo ratified. But
the entire field would be explored; ex
isting powers and limitations would
be better 'understood; wholesome leg

THREE NEW CURIOS
AT THE MUSEUM ARE ATTRACT
Curiosities are Unique and Valuable
A. 'A. Nlclson and E. E. Black
Considerable lntorest has boon mani
fested during the last week In three
curios ,that are oil cxtbltlon at thd mu
seum of tho State Historical Society.
The curiosities wero recently turned
ovor to the authorities of tho museum
with much Interesting data regarding
how and by whom they wore found. .
Tho curios consist of a double bar
red cross, which the older Dorlcon,
one of tho loadors of tho Lewis and
Clr.rk expedition, is supposed to lmvo
possessed; a solid silver crucifix: and
a small figure In stono which has boon
christened tho "Little Saint John.'
M. S. Lane unearthed tho .crucifix
while working in Harlan county, near
Orleans, last May. Ho was engaged
In digging, when ho discovered tho
curio around the neck of a. skeleton.
The crucifix was pluccd In tho Unlvor
Blty Museum soon aftor It was found
nnd a few days ago attracted tho at
tention 'of A. A. Nlolson and 13. B.
Bluckman. Mr. Blackman had Rov.
M. A. Shine of the St. Theresa pro;
cathedral investigate the curio and tho '
two came to the conclusion that tho
crucifix may have been worn by tho
famous friar, Podllla -who was killed
many years ago while doing mluslou
ary work among the Indians. Beside
Rev, Shine, many- other. Catholics a to
interested in .the cross and the invest!
gallon; to'detorrairie tho'ejmct identity,
of the 'discovery wlll bo continue.
At the base of tho. cross which is
solid silver, rests n skull and cross
bones. The letters .on the 'crucifix,
Rev. Shine says, havo the meariing .
of Calvary. ;
Tho second curio Is . a double-barred
cross that was found on a grave
near Peru some years ago and presen
ted, to tho museum by th'o, late R. W.
Furnas, The fact that' thd letters
"O-R-I-O-N" uppear on u tree near
. . . '
tho spot where the cross was found
has led many to believe that the
curio was once the property of Pierre
Dorion. It Is supposed that the lot-
tor "D," having boon poorly made,
.was soon covered by the, growing
bark. Dorion suddenly disappeared
from the Lewis and Clark expedition
In 1804 and.nover was hoard of again.
Investigators bellevo that ho was.
buried nqar Poru and that the grave
on which tho cross was found, is his.
The. third curio is a figure cut in
stono four Inches in length and two
Inches wide. It was unearthed at
Tokamah a few' years ago. Tho fig,
ure is known as "Little Saint John"
and Is thought to havo been one of
the sacred relics of tho Indians. . ..
