When the si Ionic column- fell Sat

For the Ionie columns were stove
pipes, and the clinging ivy about them
was green tiue paper, the whole con
stituting the chief -cenery in the third
act of the clever fa ice.
The day was saved by Mi-s Lola

to undermine our stately columns!"
Oh, There's a Man!
Not a man got pa-t the vigilant
janitois who guarded the doors of the
auditorium during the performance. The
girls had the show all to them-elves.
One of the "male" ehoru-. dre-sed in
a natty blue coat and white duck

is all fri.zles. By mistake, Miss Fresh
has taken "Billy's" suit case, when she
begins to dress for a party that evening
she is horror stricken to find that she
has only boy's clothes to wear.
Comes "Flaxie" to the rescue, and
frizles ''Miss Mi-take." The result wa-
grotesque, the girls say. Every now and
then the "Men's" chorus, very nifty in
their "frat" suits and white hats, take
a hand with real paddles borrowed from
the sophomores. They are the haers.
Miss Myrtle Meyer, being a freshman in
the show, is the haee. 'Twas all done
in most approved fashion.
The "Male" Chorus."
In the 'male" chorus were Mi-s Mar
garet Woodson, of Independence, Mo.,
and Mi-s Ida May Cole of St. Louis.both
pledged to the Pi Beta Phi sorority,
Miss Charlie Tidd, of Columbia, Miss
Alice Richardson and Miss Ruth Phil
lips of Kan.-as City and Miss Mildred
Xorris of Columbia. In the girls' cho
rus were Mis Faith Pearse, of the
Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Mi-s Efale
Brown, a Delta P.-i, both of Kansa
City; Miss Louise Blackmar and Mis
Mary Xoe, a Delta P-i.
Mi-s Lela IIowat, very dignified in a
long frock coat and a high silk hat,
was "Dr. Hill" and Mi- Juliette Mo-,
of Columbia, a member of Kappa-, was
Registrar Switzler. "Dr. Hill" and
"Mr. Switzler" were talking on the
campus when the columns fell.
There was a little flutter on the stage
and laughter from the audience, but
"Dr. Hill" came to the rc-cue and the
show went on.-
In the end '"Miss Mistake" and "Billy
Bashful" are married and return to the
farm to escape the paddles of the sopho
mores. Yersimilitude was lent io the play
by the presence of a newsboy, carrying
the University Missourian. and of a
peanut vender. Miss Helen Ross was
the newsboy. Miss Frances Smith the
"peanut boy" and the gills all said
they were "real cute."

TO BARE STANDARD
OYSTER BAY', Sept. 21. It is
learned here that an interview or
letter will appear within 48 hours, in
which President Roosevelt will give
the Federal Government's side of the
Standard Oil situation, especially its
experience with public and secret em
ployes of the company.
The President, it is learned, will
unmask a conspiracy whereby the
Standard was seeking to control both
political parties, and thereby shape
both legislation and judicial opinions.
That the Standard Oil disclosure
were one subject discussed, was proved
by the Secretary issuing a type
written statement, admitting that
President Roosevelt had been appealed
to by financiers and politicians,
among the latter Representative
Sibley, not to prosecute the Stand
ard Oil, but that he had turned a deaf
ear to all the appeals and had or
dered the prosecution to be continued.
