Student Activities Will Be
Discussed at Assembly
Dr. Woodson Moss, professor of the
theory ami practice of medicine in the
University of Missouri, in Iiis lecture
this morning at the first University
assembly of the year, declared that stu
dents are liable to serious physical dam
ae beean-e they eat too rapidly.
Dr. Moss "-poke on "The Hygiene of
I5i"lit Liwug.' He was introduced by
Dr. A. l's "'" president of the Uni
versity, who will preside at the twice-a-week
Dr. Mo" read from an examination
paper written twenty years ago by a
senior student, a candidate for the de
cree of -V 1. I" tho-e days, the speaker
:Ll explained, the subject of physiology was
Where's Your Abdomen?
One of the questions was about the
abdomen. This was the answer: '"The
alidomen is a sort of cell, found in about
all parts of the body except in the
brain, back of the eyeballs and some
few other places."'
"While few of the students here are
informed as they should be of the anat
omy and physiology of the human
body," aid Dr. Mo-, "most of you per
haps can distinguish between the brain
and the alxlomen. The man who wrote
that paper is now a practicing physi
cian. I am saving it to show him."
Dr. Moss's lecture, which he described
as introductory to the series on health,
might have been called '"How Not to
Discarding the technical verbiage of
the medical class room. Dr. Moss told
of the constant warfare that is being
waged by the cells of the body, its
workers and soldiers, against the on
slaught of bacteria.
Ker human body, he said, was a
sort of community in itself. He told
of the various- cells, each doing its ap
pointed duty, and urged that those cells
lie kept in condition to resist the attack
of the bacteria.
'If we could get statistics showing the
exact physical condition of each young
man and young woman, first on entering
and then on leaving school after four
years of study, 1 am sure we would
have some startling information some
thing that would cause us to pause,"
Dr. Moss said. "Just the other day 1
was called, to see a teacher in the Uni
versity, who 'was suffering from indi
gestion, lie told me he had ruined bis
stomach while a student here. After
making an examination I was convinced
he was right."
Dr Mo-s in coming lectures will take
up the questions of food, drink, cloth
ing, sunshine, air and sleep in their re
lation to the health of the student.
The assembly Thursday will be given
over to discussion of student activities.
Dr. Hill will preside. Assemblies will
be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from
10 to 11 a. m.
Dr. 1 1 ill explained the purpose of the
assembly as educational, supplementing
the work of the class room. During
the year, he said, lectures would be
given on current topics, on right meth
ods nf study, with now and then an

Question of Settlement
-J Costs Unexpectedly
PARIS, Sept. 2 Surprise has been
caused lere by statements emanating
from Derlin which indicate that Germa
ny intends to make an effort to have a
hand in the settlement of the costs of
the French and Spanish military op
erations in Morocco, notably at Casa
blanca. It is pointed out that the statement
that France and Spain intended to set
tle this point with Mulai Hafid, after his
recognition as sultan, was embodied in
the "declaration'' that accompanied the
note and not in the note itself, which
related to the conditions pertaining to
the lecognition of Mulai Hafid.
This communication was designed
simply to notify the powers, in good
faith, that France and Spain intended
to settle their individual scenes with
Mulai Hafid later, as failure to pro
vide for such a settlement before recog
nition might create the impression that
this puiposp had been abandoned.
At the same time the other powers, it
was alleged in the "declaration," have
the same independence in the matter of
readjusting their individual claims. This
'declaration," unlike the note proper,
does not call for a reply.
Official French View.
The following may be regarded as the
official French view:
"The response of the powers to the
iicie concern only the international
guarantees to these demands of Mulai
Hafid; what arrangements France and
Spain make subsequent to recognition
for the protection of their interests con
cern only themselves. Germany has
nothing to do with this and we will
not discuss it with her."
The German intimation that France
intended to include the cost of the mili-
tary operations as a condition prece
dent to the recognition of Mulai Hafid
again has been categorically denied, as
iias also the statement that Spain shared
the German view.
The foieign office does not take ex
cept ion to the indication that Germany
propo-e-, to take full time to consider
its reply to the note, although it is
pointed out that eveiv day's delay only
postpones the recognition of Mulai Hafid.

C0TT0N MILLS CLOSED

MANCHESTER. Eng.. Sept. 2 .
Four hundred cotton mills have been
closed owing to the reiection of a five
per cent cut in wages by 1:50.000
workmen. In vthe hope of avoiding
a general strike the cotton industry
here has been abandoned.
It is expected that 1.200.000 men en-

cutting down the world's production of
cotton goods by one-half.

Harvard, is Certain of a Fast
and Resourceful Lot
P.OSTON. Sept. 22. Football practice
is now in full swing at the Eastern
colleges and next week the players will
get down to the serious work of pre
paring for the season's contest. Interest
in the great college game is probably
keener than ever before. The game to
day is seemingly about as good as it
is possible to make it. Many of the
former abuses have been eliminated and
at the same time none of its attractive
ness has been lost. Football always
will be a strenuous sport, but the new
rules and the new spirit in which it
is played have made it a clean and

good-sized squad of candidates. There

thing is certain. The team will be thor
oughly coached. Coach Haughton has
surrounded himself with some of the I

WHEAT AVERAGE IS
LOWEST IN YEARS
Damaging to Missouri
George 15. Ellis, secretary of the State
Hoard of Agriculture has just finished
tabulating the yield of wheat in Mis
souri for 1!I0S.
The average yield per acre is 10.7
! bushels, the lowest average yield for
five years. The ten-year average for
the state is 1:5-0 bushels. The cause
for the low yield this year is too much
rain, rust, and ovenlow.
The larget product for any county is
that of St. Charles, producing H37.000
bushels. Ten counties in the state pro
duced more than half a million bushels.
St. Charles. Franklin. Pike, J-afayette.
Platte, Cooper. Lincoln. St. Louis. Scott
The total yield for the State this
year is 2O.CS4.O0O bushels, as compared
with 28.S.-IO.00O bushels in 1007.
The average consumption of wheat per
capita, including that used for seed,
is aliout five bushels, so Missouri has
produced between three and four million
bushels more than is needed for con
sumption by its people.
