Omaha High School Teacher Declares

Is In the United 8tates of
Doforo a very limited audience at
tho Tomplo theater last ovonlng Prof.
BoniBtoln of tho Omaha high school
delivered a moBt Interesting addross
upon "Tho RoBtless Jow."
Professor Berjisteln spoke as . fol
lows: "The Jowlsh race has had a
long, Interesting and useful history.
From cnrllest -times and' through tho
dark days they have kept tho lamps

Has Overcome Prejudice.
Tho Jow even In the modern times
has had mnny dllllcultios to overcome
and chief among these is prejudice,
which hnB met him everywhere. There
has been a general lack of under
standing of tho restlessness of tho
Jow. Tho roslesBnosB of the Jow is ns
much a mntter of design as It Is of
temperament. This restlessness has
often been termed a tending to wand
ering, but it is not. Tho Jew does
not wander at random. His spirit Ih
as reBtleBB as IjIb body. Jewish thought
has at all Union had an influence In
civilization. He has represented one
great, permnnont line of thought at
all times. The Jews have always been
a brainy people, surpassing many
others. In this way they have greatly
promoted tho development of civiliza
tion and shnped Boclety by their so
Tho Jow haB ever been a home
buildor and a home lovor, and yet in
tho oyeB of tho world this fact has
always boon misunderstood. Yet this
spirit of the Jow will live nnd endure
and prove to be a potent influence in
Bplte of adverse prejudice in showing
hia neighbors mnny of their own short
Not a Wanderer.
Tho Jow has always been called a
"Wandering Jew." but Biich is not the
case. Rather, ho is a "Restless Jow."
The Jew does move, but it is not aim
less or at random, but there Is n
demand to satisfy. Perhaps the dis
tinction .is only a matter of definition,
nnd yet tho apparent wanderings of
tho Jew or his restlessness is due to
the fact that ho has a. homo not yot
What of tho future Jew? And of
his offspring? They will bo better,
perhaps. Great charges have occurred
since tho tlmo of Abraham. The Jews
are doing their duty to humanity, nnd
in tho higher evolution of society, they
may yet receive a place. Ho will yet
show us tho. true meaning of tho
teachings of tho Naza'rene, as to tho
Idea of brotherly love. Tho Christian
races, aB the Jew has mot thorn, have
failed to shpw him Christianity's oper
ation. The Jew has seen that there
is much discrenancv between tho
teaching nnd tho application. The
early church endeavored to subject
the Jow and compel him to support It.
Tle unregenorato must become a part
of the church even though his consci
ence might bo involved. Men even
yet have not learned the lesson they
have tried to teach.
The Jow could not bo expected to
accept the teachings of Christ be
cause he had received his low from
Mount Slnal. Everywhere there have
.been such disrupting influences, yet
it has given tho Jew an opportunity
to extend his own 'ideals. The great
est terror to the Jew Is the unchrls-
lianity of those whom ho moots. Tho
world has long known the restless
Jow. Ho is nn average man, His
standard has been high but his chil
dren will bo higher nnd bo better, He
has found at last his ideal homo. Ho
has searched afar and waited long.
Tho long social antagonism Is passing
away. His future homo Ib in America.

championship games should, as a re

DE TRAY 18 TO COACH IN OHIO
Captain of 1907 Chicago Eleven
Leo Do Trny, captain of the cham
pionship Chicago football team of
1907, and assistant coach of the ma
roon eleven last year, has signed a
contract to coach the Wittenberg col
lege eleven at Springfield, O., next fall.
At the conclusion of Do Tray's com
petition in tho spring of 1908, ho was
deluged with offers to coach at var
ious institutions. He refused them,
preferring to get a year's schooling in
coaching under Director Stagg. Last
season ho was chief scout for Mr.
Stagg, and alwayB brought back valu
able information about tho team play
of Chicago's opponents. In this way,
he did much to help retain the west
prn football championship for Chi
cago. Fifty men are out for the baseball
team at Stanford. Seven are fornier

SENIORS WILL MEET
ELECTION OF PRESIDENT TO BE
TRESHMEN CANDIDATE IN RACE
R. P. Thomas of Omaha Announces
Aspirations for the Leadership of
the First Year Class and Thus
Supplies Void in Politics.
Tho senior clnsB meeting which will
settle the contest now being actively
waged by two candidates for the presi
dency of tho fourth-year organization
will bo held Tuesday morning at 11
o'clock In .Memorial hall. B. W. Hills
and 1. F. Baker, the two contestants,
are both confident of election nnd the
bnlloting will undoubtedly bo closo.
Hills nnd Baker have both been In
the race for several weeks and both
have made thorough canvasses of the
class for votes. Hills, being a mem
ber of the senior academic and fresh
man law classes, is supposed to be
strong in the Htornry college, while
Baker is presumed to have nn advant
age In the engineering school of which
he Is a member. It seeniB likely, how
ever, that personal friendships nnd
prejudices will enter into the affair to
so large an extent that the colleges
will not divide In anything like dofln
its form on tho presidential ' vote.
Both Baker and Hills are well known
in nil departments of the school nnd
personal popularity will undoubtedly
be tho deciding factor.
Frats Not In It.
Tho absence of a fraternity candi
date serves to prohibit nny union of
tho Greeks about one candidate and
this aids in securing an election de
cidedly free from cliques or combina
tions. In another respect this year's
election Is different from that of one
year ago in that no definite promises
have been made so far as is known
concerning the Ivy day orator, who
Is appointed by the class. Last year
It was generally understood who
would receive tho honor in case either
of the two candidates were elected.
Consequently tho Influence and popu
larity of these men also counted in
determining the vote for the prin
cipals. In addition to tho presidency numer
ous other important matters will bo
considered by tho class. There will
bd no report on the senior prom owing
to tho absence from tho city of tho
chairman. Reports will probably bo
received from the pin committee, tho
social committee, and play committee,
and the committee on intor-class de
bate. Freshman Candidate Out.
Freshman politics were enlivened
yesterday by the announcement of tho
candidacy of R. P. Thomas of Omaha
for tho presidency of that class. Mr.
Thomas is a graduate of Omaha high
school in tho class of 1907. He en
tered tho academic college last fall
and haB been active In daBs affairs
since the organization of tho class.
He is a member of Phi Gamma Delta
With the announcement of Mr.
Thomas tho void in politics in the
freshman class has been filled. Until
yesterday the dearth of candidates in
the first-year organization was so
severe that President Gerspacher had
announced that no meeting would be
held, until candidates were presented.
It is likoly that other . men will now
come forward for the pla'ce.
