We realize today, as never before,
that this world is a great joint stock
company. He gets most out of life
who puts most in.
The ideal of the age is service. The
struggle for elhciency has become
paramount. The success or failure of
an individual, an institution or a
corporation is measued by the effi
ciency of its service. Efficient ser
ice, in its final analysis, means the
gieatest good to the greatest num
ber. This is a vital time for the High
School senior. He is at the parting of
the ways. One road leads through
college; the other directly into prac
Our colleges have been harshly
criticibed. Jk h of the criticism is
jtiht. So is much of the criticism of
the college graduate. But go to the
farm, to the trades, to the profes
sions; you will find the most effici
ent workers everywhere are the col
lege men. In every calling a vast
majority of the leaders are college
Critics have said that the college
graduate does not "fit in" to the
world. It might be answered that he
is the bnilder who shapes its des
tiny. "Statistics show that a college ed
ucation adds more than 200 percent
to one's earning power. No arith
metic has yet been devised which can
estimate the percent it adds to one's
manliness, happiness and useful
ness. College week issues of the Mis
sourian. of which this is the introduc
tion, will place before the High
School seniors of this Commonwealth
information which should help in a
wise decision of the question
"whether to go to college or no."
The colleges about which you read
in these issues offer Missouri young
people advantages unsurpassed by
any group of educational institutions.
The presidents of these colleges will
be glad to give you detailed informa
tion concerning their institution, and
to advise you upon the vital ques
tion immediately before you "col
lege or the business world." The
Missourian urges you to avail your
self of their services.
A college education doesn't make
a man but it helps.
We have heard of baseball fans
and fields, but it must be a set of
martyrs they have at Chicago. A
writer to the Chicago Tribune com
plains that at one gate at a ball park
Sunday, the crowd was so great that
it had to be "unmercifully clubbed
by the police" to keep it in order.
It is undeniable heroism of the
Spartan kind to permit oneself to be
clubbed before paying hard coin to
sec an afternoon ball game in a
glaring sun. And one cannot but
admire it. Yet alongside of this
comes the natural question.why is
there so much good music in Chicago
unheard, so many eloquent lectures
unattended, so much wonderful art
MORE PRECAUTION AT SEA.
The sinking of the Titanic goes
down in maritime history as the
greatest of disasters. It is partic
ularly a shock to us because of late
we have come to think that acci
dents at sea are almost impossible.
The Titanic disaster shows that
we have not taken the necessary pre
cautions for the safety of passengers
of steamers at sea. The capacity of
the Titanic's life boats was only
about one-tlyrd of the total capac'ty
of the steamer.
The capacity of the life boats
should have been the same as that
of the steamer. It seems that this
could have been true and this should
be one of the requirements for all
steamship companies. If enough life
boats cannot be carried on a steamer
for 2500 people then the steamer
should not be allowed to take on that
We should take precaution and not
leave all to good luck.
YOUNtt MEN IN POLITICS.
Many people seem to think that a
young man while in college should sit
with his arms folded and be a "sis
sy." They object to his taking an
interest in politics. They watch him
closely and criticise all his mistakes.
This is the wrong attitude, for they
should encourage instead of discour
age. In the young men of the coun
try lies the hope of the nation. The
fact that they are taking a more
lively interest in politics today is a
good sign that the country is not
going to the "bow wows."
The young man's view of life is
different from that of the older men.
As a rule he is optimistic and is
found on the right side of many ques
tions. He knows that he has a repu
tation to make and that if he loses
in the beginning all Is ended.
Then, too, young men as a rule are
progressive. They furnish the vim
and the life for politics and business.
If it were not for them the old world
would soon be rocked into kindling
wood. They should be encouraged.
Now then, John, you've made the
baby squall by telling him the story
of da da ba ootsie bootsie bo gug-gug-guggle,
when he wanted you to
tell him in English a story of how
the cave man slew the ichthyosaurus
with his little stone hatchet. John,
when will you learn to treat children
according to their stage of psycholo
gical development and to tell those
things of their primordial ancestry
that are such a delight to them.
One difference between the em
ployed and the employe is that the
former doubles his money while the
latter doubles his back.

TO GRADUATE SIXTY-SEVEN
The Kansas City School of Law to
Hold Commencement Exercises.
The Kansas City School of Law
will graduate sixty-seven at the com
mencement exercises to be held in
June. The school has been in exist
ence only seventeen years and has
had a remarkable growth in that
time. One of the prime objects of
the Kansas City School of Law is to
give to students an opportunity to
combine the study of law with the
practical work of a law office with
out any interference between the
two. AH sessions of the school are
held between 4 and 10 o'clock p. m.
The school confers the degree of
Bachelor of Laws upon all gradu
ates. The faculty of this school is chosen
from the bench and the bar of Kan
sas City. Judge Francis M. Black
was the first president of the school.
Upon his death O. H. Dean became
president and Is at present acting in

When the school started it con
sisted of a two years course of in
struction. This was Increased to
three years in 1902. The next
change was made in the curriculum
in 1911, when the school ceased to be
strictily a night school and became
a day and night school. By this
change, students attend class room
work for ten and one-half hours per
week. These changes have proven
to be a most potent factor in raising
the standard of the school.
In 1910 new and commodious
quarters were obtained on the 5th
floor of the Nonquit Building which
gave the school more room and
made possible many improvements.
GROWTH OF HARDIN COLLEGE
Present Enrollment of the Moxlco
School Is 2.-0.
Hardin College and Conservatory
of Music for young women, at Mex
ico, Mo., was founded and endowed
by Governor Charles H. Hardin. Ar
ticles of association were adopted
June 6, 1873. The college possessed
at that time one building 40 by 50
feet and two stories In height. Now
the college property is valued
at about a quarter of a million dol
lars. By the terms of Governor Har
din's gift forty per cent of the in
come from the endowment is added
to the principal until the endowment
amounts to $500,000.
In addition to the regular literary
course; instruction is offered in art,
music, including both vocal and
instrumental, domestic science, phy
sical training. The Y. W. C. A. of
the state has a branch organization
in the college. The number of stu
dents enrolled in the school is at
present about 250.
John W. Million. A. M., LL. D.,
is president of the college with Prof.
A. E. Guerne as director of the Con
servatory of music.
