Professor's Children Cry
When They Find Their
Cyanide is dead. The Tigers will
have to get another mascot.
Last night in the soft afterglow,
Millieent, T years old, was slowly fol
lowing her father and mother. Prof,
and Mrs. .1. A. Cibson, across the back
lawn ol their home at 720 Maryland
place. Presently they stopped before
a little heap in the grass. The pro
fessor silently raised a piece of sack
ing. Cy was dead. Cyanide, the good
natured black and yellow dog, loved
by everybody in Columbia as the mas
cot of all Tiger teams, was Millicent's
playmate and protector.
Professor Cibson stood long, looking
down at the body of Cy. Airs. Gibson,
beside him, held a handkerchief.

Take a University Tax Petition
home with you and get necessary
signatures at once.
DO IT NOW!
which now and then she raised to her
eyes. Little Millieent was very ser
ious, looking now at Cy and then at
her father. Finally she ran and hid
her face in her mother's skirts.
Professor Cibson brought Cyanide
here from Cleveland, Ohio, as a puppy.
He soon grew to be a good sized dog
and followed the professor on the foot
ball field. At football practice he ran
among the players, looking for a frolic,
but when a game witli another school
was called he stayed on the sidelines.
If another dog, ignorant of the im
portance ot the event, ran upon the
field, Cy went after the intruder and
usually cleared the field.
Students who were here two years
ago are not likely to forget how Cy
worried the little bear which the Iowa
team brought down trom Iowa City as
their mascot. The bear was tied to
the south fence of Rollins field at
the game. The dog recognized the
cub as an enemy, and kept close watch
on him throughout the game. But Cy.
with all his daring and loyalty, was
wise enough not to get within reach of
the bear's paws. First on one side
and then on the other. Cy would set
up a howl. The bear's head was con
stantly bobbing in an effort to keep
his tormentor in sight. The bear died
soon after the Iowa team, defeated, re

GIRLS ARE TAUGHT
TO CA1E0R SICK
Demonstrations for the Home
Economics Class at Park
THREE LECTURES GIVEN
Genenil Points About Care of
Patient Learned-May Be
The seniors in Miss Edna Day's
Home Economics class are having de
monstrations in the handling of the
sick by Miss Dora Battson, principal
of the Training School for Nurses'
at the Parker Memorial Hospital.
Three of these demonstrations al
ready have been held, the amphithe
ater being used tiie first time for thirty
live of the students, while only a dozen
have attended the last lectures which
were held in the south ward around
an empty bed.
The girls are shown how to make a
bed, to turn a patient on his side,
administer medicine to a bed-ridden
one and general points connected with
the management of the sick.
Reading the clinical thermometer,
holding the wrist so as to count the
pulse and noticing the chest for res
pirations are some of the points learn
ed. How to administer nourishment to
one who cannot rise, which is done
by a tube or special cup, was shown at
these demonstrations. The tempera
ture should never be taken immediately
tare the patient has drunk any fluid
for the heat of this might be registered
and not that of the body.
For feeling the pulse the first two
or three lingers should be used and
not the thumb as the latter has a
pulse in it and confusion might re
sult. 11 helpless the patient must be turn
ed, for to lie in one position is a sign
of poor nursing. To do this, skill is
needed, for care must be taken to have
no undue strain on any part of the
body, especially if it is a case of fract
ured legs, as carelessness might re
sult' in permanent injury.
These lectures have thus far been
planned on no regular schedule but
at some future date there may bo a
regular course if arrangements can be

HOLO THEM 001
Post Oil ice Department to Co
Operate with Carriers on
CONVENTION HERE TODAY
N. T. (lentry and E. B. Cau-
thoru Welcome the Mail
Deliverers to Columbia.
It is the purpose of tho United
States Post Ollice Department to co
operate with the letter carriers In their
plans for bringing about postal re
forms which will benefit both the ser
vice and the individual workers con
nected with it, according to (leorgo
Daniels, the representative or tho De
partment to the Fortieth Annual Con-,
vention of the Missouri Association
of Letter Carriers being held hi Col
umbia today. Experience, learning,
and wisdom are to have more chance,
and carriers should bo made to feel
that they are not being "held down
by their jobs."
The Convention was opened this
morning by addresses or welcomo by
N. T. Centry, E. B. Cauthorn, secre
tary of the Columbia Commercial
Club, and A. C. Brady on behalf of the
postmaster. A reply was made by
James E. Sparkman, of Springfield.
Mo., the president of the association.
A silver mounted gavel was presented
to Mr. Sparkman by members of tho
association. The rest of the morning
was devoted to routine business and
the reading of reports. A short speech
was also made by Mr. Daniels, who
was formerly a letter carrier.
Now 30,000 Carriers.
' "In my time," he said, "there
were only about 15,000 letter carriers
in the country. Now there are more
than twice that many. With this In
crease in number has also come a
change in conditions. Tho eligiblty
of men for advancement now presents
a great problem; also, the question of
pensions anil retirements. A1 'fewr '
years ago I wass called to Investigate
the cost of the carrier service in an
office whose expenses had been run
ning higher than the average. I found
tnat of the fourteen carriers five were
old soldiers, all of whom were over
70 years of age, and hardly ablo to
lift their feet ofr tho ground. Tula
illustrates tho need of a system of
pensions and retirement. It would
have been inhuman to dischargo them
and deprive them of their only sourco
of a livelihood, but with a pension
ssytem they could have been re
moved." Mr. Daniels also assured the
carriers that tho Department waB
"with them" in their plans.
Favor Pension System.
Bills at present before Congress con
cerning improvements in the post-office
system were read before the con
vention. Of these tho bills providing
for a retirement and pension system,
for an automatic increase In salaries,
and for an arrangement whereby car
riers required to work on Sunday
should receive some other day as a
holiday were the most important.
The convention adjourned before
noon for an automobile ride around
town, and a visit to tho University
buildings and grounds. Twenty-six of
the thirty-eight tree delivery post of
fices of the state are represented by
delegates in tho convention. Letter
carrier associations are holding con
ventions in several other Htates to

Kansas City uul not arrive in time to
speak at tho session this morning.
He is expected to come this after
noon, however, and speak at the ban
