"Teaching ought to be one of
the most respected of the pro-
fessions," Prof. Lohwater said,
"because it deals with a com-
modity more valuable than any
other profession-the minds of
our youth."
There should be a greater liaison
between the academic community
and the teachers of children, he
said, with academicians taking a
greater part in setting up a pro-
gram for certification of teachers.

are on exhibit at the library, as
are several copies of pages from
the actual text.
Show Calendar Plates
One of the most interesting parts
of the display is a group of plates,
copied from the calendar con-
tained in the original. For each
season, there is a full page illus-
tration portraying a particular as-
pect of time accompanying the
regular calendar of dates.
The illustration portraying
spring is a picture of plowing.
Summer is represented by a group
of farmers cutting green hay.
Characteristic of autumn is a pic-
ture of peasants picking grapes,
while winter is symbolized by a
nobleman enjoying a feast in frontj
of a roaring fire.

sis on the Bible, there are numer-
ous scenes from both the Old
and New Testaments in the exhi-
Included in the selections from
the Old Testament are scenes
showing the blessing of Jacob by
his father, Abraham, described in
the Book of Genesis, and the
famous meeting between King
Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.
Depict Tower of Babel
There is a rather detailed sketch
of the construction of the Tower
of Babel, reminiscent of photo-
graphs recording the erection of a
large modern skyscraper.
In the selection from the New
Testament is a picture of the birth
of Christ, complete with adoring
shepherds and multitudes of an-
gels, singing praises to the new-
born Child.
As is the case with most other
nativity scenes, the Virgin and the
Child, radiant, with halos above
their heads, occupy the center of
the piece.I

in the discussion, the country is
shifting from a "melting pot" to a
"unity of diversities with little

Show Theological Art
Three other pictures are repre-
sentative of the symbolic theologi-
cal art of the Middle Ages, which
attempted to portray to the gen-
erally uneducated mass of believ-
ers, complex theological truths.
There is a picture of the Trinity,
showing two identical men, one
a large cross. A dove flies between
a large cross.
The men represent respectively
God the Father and God the Son.
The dove represents the Holy
Spirit, as mentioned in the Gospel
of John.

Another picture depicts a scene
in Heaven, in which the Trinity
is shown, surrounded by worship-
ping angels. The last in the series
illustrates the "Ascension of the
Souls of the Righteous," the goal

One last medieval ideal is evi-
denced by a series of pictures on
the life of the Virgin Mary. In-
cluded among the six pictures are
scenes of the Annunciation and
the Adoration of the Magi.
Displayed with the pictures, the
text contains the actual devotional
guides, hymns and stories which
were necessary for the liturgy of
the medieval church.
Have Ornate Lettering
The manuscripts, written in
Latin, have very ornate lettering l
in the fashion of the monkish
copyist of the day. The illuminated
manuscript contains a profusion of
gold leaf along with other rather
intricate inked designs.
The decoration usually has no
purpose other than to beautify the
text, although in a few case, there
are cameo sized pictures of the
The exhibition is to remain on
public display until the end of the
month when it will be replaced by
