I had not shaved for forty five
years said Maj Evans None of my
children could remember when I didnt
have a beard I met Prof L M Defoe
and shook hands with him He looked
at me and said
It seems like I ought to know you
Many friends who have known me
for years now pass without speaking
I fear I made a mistake in shaving I
shall let my beard grow again

Chancellor Strong Tells of Prosperity
at the Kansas Institution
Overflowing granaries and bulging
banks have brought a new danger to the
University of Kansas Chancellor Frank
Strong who was in Kansas City this
morning pointed out the pitfall
So much money has been made in
this Western country in the last ten
years Chancellor Strong said and the
boy has been furnished so much of it
that he has desired to live pretty well
and some of them have craved and have
had motor cars All of this has a ten
dency to distract attention from study
and we have had some hard work to
combat the tendency
Chancellor Strong said he expected
the enrollment this year to reach 2400
the largest in the history of the uni
versity Last year the enrollment was
2210 a record Kansas City Star

THE MAN ON THE INSIDE
Peddler of Free Information Finds a
Victim on Wabash Train
The talkative let-me-tell-you man
you know the kind that furnishes free
and without the asking ready and in
side information on any subject while
you wait was happy On the combined
freight and passenger fast express which
had waited twenty eight minutes at the
Wabash depot in Columbia so that it
might get a late start for Centralia
he picked out a seat mate who had the
appearance of being a good listener
Ah reading about Cook Peary and
the North Pole he said cheerfully the
glib ready informer is always cheerful
as he glanced at his companions news
paper after a Howdy and a comment
on the weather Great Great stuff for
the newspapers You or I dont care
much for this North Pole business but
it furnishes the newspapers a whole lot
to print It gives em something to write
about and fill up space
You see its like this Lowers his
voice and looks wise These editors
have an awful hard time gettin stuff
to put in their papers I got it straight
from my wifes second cousins husband
who works in the engine room of one
of the St Louis papers He says these
editors have to work like dogs to get
things to print and are always prayin
for something to happen like findin the
North Pole Yep its great for the news
papers I dont read much of it you
know for I know its jist newspaper
stuff
Silence for a fraction of a second
Ah in the same cheerful tone I
see theyre putting up a new billboard
over there Big fight on billboards in
the cities did you say Ah but its
just a newspaper fight You see low
voice my wifes nieces husband put me
next to that too Who ever heard of
a billboard falling down and hurting
anybody Who ever saw one that didnt
add to the beauty of a street Theyre
really a fine thing But the newspapers
want to fix it so everybody will have to
advertise with them instead of on signs
Im on to them Now
The listener excused himself to get a
drink of ice water He never returned
