Supreme Conrt Justice Makes Elks
Memorial Address. .
In an address delivered at Manhattan
yesterday, as a part of the Elk memor
ial exercises in that city, Justice Henry
F, Mason took as his text the variant
sentiments regarding the question of
immortality as expressed by the great
writers whose thoughts have been pre
served In prose and verse, and drew the
lesson that to some extent - the con
flicting opinions were the result of a
difference in mental attitude; and that
this difference, more apparent than real
frequently depended upon the reader's
interpretation of the . language em
ployed. t . .
; The same words may have a different
meaning to different authors, and may
give to one reader a different impres
sion irom inai given-to anoiaer. x ne
effusive man expresses his good will
by profuse cordiality., The reticent roan
may mean as much by his grudging
monosyllables. One clergyman defines
his task as saving human souls; an
other as upbuilding- human character;
and perhaps they mean essentially the
same thing.
: While the Elk order Is not a religious
body. Judge Mason emphasized the
point that its creed contains many of
the principles of brotherhood and fra
ternity upon which every religious sect
Is founded. The Elk is not censorious.
He concedes to every man the right of
opinion. He is, tolerant. Perhaps a
better word than "toleration" to ex
press this Elk idea is "Charity," used
In its broader sense as descriptive of
a frame of mind.
"But -by constant use,' said Judge
Mason, "we have so associated charity
with the relief of distress the giving
of alma, that this has become its pri
mary meaning. This consideration led
the revisers of the New Testament to
change the time-hallowed verse: 'And
now abideth Faith. Hope and Charity,
these three; but the greatest of these
Is Charity,' and to substitute for It,
'And now abideth Faith, Hope and
Love, these three; but the greatest of
these is Love.' I venture the prediction
that this new version will not endure.
Properly understood the word love is
entirely appropriate. But it, likewise,
by force of custom, carries a special
meaning. It has a wide diversity of
uses, but it suggests sentiment, If not
sentimentality. It is not well suited
to the practical commonplaces of every
day life. - ,
"We don't need to love a man, in the
sense In which the word is ordinarily
used, in order to acknowledge that he
has the same right to his opinions that
we have to ours. Whatever you may
call that spirit, it Is to be found here
in the ritual of the order. It Is not
a religion or a substitute for a religion,
but it has a Just a place In every code
which attempts to define the duties of
men toward one another.
"The philosophy of the Benevolent
and Protective Order of Elks is essen
tially practical. It seeks to deal with
the things of this world. It declines
to view our life here as of little con
sequence or as a vale of tears. It
realizes that there need be no more
beatlnc heaven than this world might
be if all conformed to the teachings of
the founder of Christianity; - .that no
perdition could be more desolute than
this world if human nature were al
ways at its worst.
"The spirit of the Elks order is op
timistic. It looks on the bright side.
It seeks the lessons of life not In the
remote days of some far-off, land. It
reads the wisdom . and . goodness and
mercy of an all-powerful Father, - not
merely In miracles wrought in ancient
times, but In every opening flower, in
every returning springtime, . in every
manifestations of the divine law that
governs the universe. It believes that
the best preparation for a world to come
Is a constant striving to make this
world brighter, better and happier."

Bob Peebles Startles Oklahomans on
K Golf
Bob Peebles has returned from Ok
lahoma, wtfcerehe played a. number of
exhibition' games, of golf. In playing,
the trip, he broke records on every
course and did his best playing in
Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
At Tulsa in playing , the practice
rounds, he made the first nine holes
In 39 and the second round in 86,
making a total of 75, thereby beating
the course record by two. : Later
Monday he again lowered the course
record by playing the first round in 37
and the second in SB, thereby lower
ing the course record to 72, which was
four be'ow par. He was playing low
ball with Arthur Jackson, a profes
sional, against C. Kemp and Frank
Moore, two of the best amateur play
ers of the club. This shows that he
playes five holes under the course
At Oklahoma City he played the
first 18 holes at par in the morning
and the second 18 holes in the after
noon at one under par.
This shows remarkable playing.
The first rounds at Tulsa were played
under the most unpleasant weather
conditions. Rain was falling and the
greens were under water. He im
proved his playing the following Mon
day, after the links had been given,
a chance to dry.

Nebraska Drops HaskeU Indians
Jayhawkers In Doubt,
Lincoln, Neb. Dec 8. Three games
for the 1914 football schedule, which
is now in the making, are practically
certain for the University of Nebras
ka. These contests are with Minne
sota at Minneapolis; Iowa at Iowa
City and Ames at Lincodn. The. re
port prevails that one other big West
ern eleven is to be met away from,
home. i
The HaskeU Indians will be
dropped from the Cornhusker sched
ule for the coming year. There is
nothing for the Nebraskans to gain
by beating the Indiana.-and .there is
everything to lose. The schedule thus
demands that some big games at
home be played and it Is this to which
Coach Stiehm is directing his atten
tion. -. j f.-- f..
- Kansas is the only other school for
the 1913 schedule to be disposed of
for 1914. and what will be done with
the Jayhawkers is hot known.-;. It
may be that the date for the contest
for the Kansas game will be shoved
up earlier in the season or the Kan
sans may be dropped entirely. v

Called Manager's Daughter Victoria
Spirit of Victory.
Lawrence, Dec 8. Victoria- the
spirit of victory was the name which
the members of the HaskeU Indian
football team gave to the month-old
daughter of Mr . and Mrs. A. M.
Venne. It was a hard task for the
Indians to find a suitable name for
the baby and they almost gave up in
despair, but spurred on by the honor
they had won and suggestions from
the Indian co-eds at the institute, the
men chose the name "Victoria."
. FootbaU teams seldom name babies,
but in this Instance Manager Venne
thought that the men were entitled to
the privilege and put his rights as the
father aside. - -
: On Nov. 8 when the HaskeU team
was in Omaha playing Creighton col
lege the players were told that they
could name the baby. . In the inter
mission of the 'game a panting mes
senger came with a telegram for Mr.
Venne, manager of the Indian team,
to the effect that an eight-pound baby
girl had Just been born to Mrs. Venne
at Lawrence, and that both mother
and baby were well.
, The Indians were sitting In council
of war on the sidelines of Creighton
field when Mr. Venne opened the tele
gram. He read it to them and -then
"Boys, If you w-u win this game IU
let you name my baby girl. Will yon
do it?"
' The players shouted their answer
and went into the game with a ven
geance in the second half, winning- by
a 7 to 0 score and gaining the priv
ilege of naming little Miss Venne.
