"simply because they want me there.
I won't gie in to anybody, I don't
care who they are. They can't make
me do what 1 don't want to do. 1 un

Dr. Jill was asked in a personal let

Place to Jangle
If Champ Lands
IIOWMXG ('.KEEN, .MO., Apr. 10. A
letter found on the street here this
morning indicates that in the event
of Cliamji Clark's election of the pres-
:iidential chair Onson li. Jangle of this
' citv will be the next Secretarv of
State. The letter also mentions a
number of other ollices which Clark
expects to fill with Pike County men.
Arson 1!. Klee, also of this citj, is
slated for the ollice of private secre
tary to the president and II. C. (lus
ton, from Lincoln County, is consid
ered for Attorney General.
The letter was picked up on the
street by a negro by the name of
Hobbes. It is addressed to someone
by the name of Hiley. It is thought
to have been dropped bv II. J. Kile
of Columbia who is president of the
Clark Club there. Mr. Kiley was in
Howling Green yesterday making ar
rangements to take charge of the
Champ Clark campaign in the I'nited
State and .Mexico.
The letter was in part as follows:
Your recent communication received
in due order. I think the matters of
which you speak can be arranged sat
isfactorily. The otlice of Secretary
of State is already promised to O. K.
Jangle. Can offer vou something
pood in the janitor line, however. If
you happen to run into Klee tell him
private secretaryship is O. K. I lave
given Custom of Troy. Attorney Gen
eralship. Tell the boys there that if
I land I will move Howling Green and
Pike County to Washington.

teen jiersons were killed and eight
more were injured in a wreck five
miles north of here this morning
when the Slawbash Limited crashed
into the fast express between Cen
tralia and Columbia. Both trains arc
a total wreck and the track for a
mile or two on either side ot the
disaster is littered with debris.

When approached today by a re
porter for the Yellow, Onson denied
all knowledge of the affair. "It would
be nice, however, if Champ would re
member me, and I really believe no
better choice could be made for the
place." he said. Jangle is at present
busy with his duties as Dean of the
Slaw Barn but he says he will relin
quish them on three months' notice
Klee and Gtiston are both students
in the University. Neither seemed to
know anything when talked to today.
Riley admitted having received a
letter from Clark recently but would
say nothing in regards to the contents.
Questioning brought out the fact that
he had been in Bowling Green and had
lost a letter there.
SONG THE CAUSE
"They will:" he shrieked. "They will
refuse to give the prize to the Houn'
Dog song? The apple of my eye, the
pride of my heart thus rudely trampled
in the dust. I will show the state
song committee, I will show the ple
bian Iladley, that revenge is swift:"
The maniac moved closer to the
piano. For an instant his hands hov
ered over the keys. One note one
chord, Irom the Houn'Dog song and
the wires would release the mysterious
power. The demon had timed the
holocaust when he knew the audi
torium would be filled. Cnniindfiil
of their danger, students and faculty
sat calmly listening to the play.
