Columbia, Mo., April 17. The, vent of
the week was the annual Shakespearean
contest of Missouri University. As report
efl in The Republic, W. B. Burrus won
flnrt prize. Second place was assigned to
J. C Hall, but as lie had won that prize
once before he was merely placed, and the
prise went to Nelson Sears. ,m
j t Owlap to the many other entertainments
to take place about May 4 and to the pros
pective trip of the cadet battalion to St.
Irfiuis to take part in the Dewpy parade on
that date, the date of the Missouri-Nebraska
debate has been changed to May 11.
The debate will be interesting in more than
one resect. Tho question is. "Hesolvcd.
That "England's Course or Action in the
Transvaal Is Not Justifiable." Missouri
will have the nlllrmatlve. One of the Ne
braska debaters is a young l.idv. This will
1k the first time a woman has been on one
of the Interstate debates in Columbia. The
names of the Nebraska debaters are Char
lotte Meade, H. A. Meier and It. S. Baker.
Much to the regret of the students of the
University the Wisconsin debate has been
declared off. The debate was to havo been
held In KlrksvlUe on April 7. and Mis
souri wjs t" have been represented by II.
S. Conrad. C. E. Urnillin and V.. W. Kel
son. The Philippine question w.i- to have
been debated, and Missouri was against the
retention of th Islands. The point on
which the negotiations broke down was
verv trivial. Wisconsin did not really seem
vry anxious to have the debate after the
sides were chosen, and seemed to seize the
lirst opportunity to withdraw. The refusal
of Wisconsin to po on with the debate
leaves Missouri decidedly in the ascendant,
as last venr, when Missouri lirst debated
Wisconsin, tiie decision of the live judges
was unanimous for Missouri.

The "solid south" hns ben broken up as
to tho approved high schools of the Uni
versity of Missouri. By the solid south is
meant South Central and Southeast Mis
souri. For a long time this section did not
contain a single approved school. When
the Fortieth Gennr.il A.csomhlv mitt nt .inf.
fcrson City there, was not an approved '
school of the Stato University in that sec-
tion. Now there are five one at Iberia,
one at West Plains, one at Poplar Bluff,
one at Blomnfield and one at Bonne Terre!
The citizens of Doniphan have voted an
ifcsue of bonds to erect a JII.000 High School.
One or two other cities of Southeast Mis
souri have also voted bond issues for the
erection of Hifth School buildings of about
$12,000. At Maiden they have voted a tax
of 1 mill on the dollar for library and labo
ratory purposes in their High School. Good
news comes from a number of other places.
The university looks upon Southeast .Mis
souri as a region of great promise in edu
cation as well as in agriculture and in com
merce. The officers of the university are
watching its development with tho keenest
Interest and sympathy.
