have made to bring new students here i
have lieen varied and unique. Copies of i
every student and University nub-
j lication were sent to the four accred- I
j ited high school, in the county. During
the Christmas holiday, the County Club
annually gives programs in every high
school in the county, consisting of songs,
speeches. 'Var,ity yells, etc. In the
-pring prie, are given to winners in
a county inter-high school track meet
prelimonary to the state meet here.
Prospective Students Entertained.
In the summer the Club gives two
elalwratc events for the high school
students in the county. The first of
these is a smoker to the young men
w ho graduate from the four high schools.
These smokers are held in one of the
three principal cities, Joplin, Carthage
ami Webb City. The second event is a
dance hnd picnic at Lakeside Park,
Southwest Missouri's chief pleasure re
sort. More than 300 attended the dance
anil picnic last summer.
The result of these efforts has been
to bring the University into close con
tact with prospective students and indi
cations arc for a greatly increased en
rollment from the county next year.
Twelve or fifteen students have signi
fied their intention to enter the Univer
sity the second semester of this year,
which will bring the enrollment from
Jasper county well over 100.
The officers of the club are: Walter
Stemmons, Carthage, president; Chester
thering the intere-t- of the University
in Macon county." A novel scheme ha,
been adopted to interest the students
of Macon county high schools in the
University. This is an annual football
1 game between the Macon County club
and the Macon high school. Last year
the club met the high school team on
its own gridiron and won 21 to 0. Xow
nearly every high school boy in Macon
wants to come to the University to
learn to play football. The officers of '
the Maeon County Club are: President. '
Kem. Jr.; secretary. II. B. Stone; treas- '
Andrew Fields; vice-president. J. P. j
urer, George W. Glasgow. The club '
numbered twenty-four members last I
year and has an increased enrollment !
this year. '
The Holt County Club was organized
in 1900. La-t year it had a membership i
of twenty-two students, while this year
there are thirty-five students from the j
county. Personal work is relied upon '
chiefly to induce students to enter the i
Univer-ity. The officers are: President. '
0. J. Fries; vice-president, J. B. Hilsen- ;
beck; treasurer, W. L. Johnson, secre- '
tary. Miss Hortense Dungan. I
Caldwell Club Active. '
The Caldwell County Students' Club'
was organized in December, 1907. The
club has the double purpo-e of increas
ing the standards of the schools in the
home county and of interesting the i
students of Caldwell county in the Uni- .
, versity. There were seventeen students (
j from Caldwell county enrolled in the
I University last year and a much larger
number this year. The county is in a
farming territory with no large towns j
and considering the fact that it is in the ,
1 northvve-t corner of the state with a '
j number of small colleges competing for
i high school graduates, the club has suc
j ceeded admirably. '
I The students from Xodaway county
i are planning to organize a county club
! this fall. There are more than tortv
students from that county in the Uni
j versity and while there has been no'
organization to carry on the work, the
students have been among the most en
ergetic in the University in advertising ,
the L'niversity in the home county. Xod
away county has long been recognized
as a University stronghold and sonm of
the best-known students in the last ten
years have come from there. The conn- '
