ST. I.OUIS OK COLUMBIA?
During the trade-at-home com
paign the question was put to Colum
bians: "St. Louis or Columbia,
which'.'" Naturally we are more in
teiisted in the welfare of Columbia
than of St. Louis.
Next June the voters of Columbia
are to decide another issue between
Columbia anil St. Louis. Would you
rather see the pay checks of this town
.spent in Columbia or in St. Louis?
Irn't it better to support the mer
chants of Columbia than the brew
eries of St. Louis?
Every dollar spent in a saloon
means a dollar taken from some oth
er place. .Most of the value of the
dollar goes to St. Louis, or to brew
eries in other places. The saloons
employ few men and add but slightly
to the business of a town, while they
take away large sums.
True, this a moral issue. It
should not be settled ill terms of
cash. But the argument most fre-m.i-nilv
raised in favor of the saloon
is thai it is "good for the town."

tion over. Mr. Voter. Look at it
from every angle of the economic
standpoint. Then go to the polls in

town" pays financially.

Represents :i Xevv Idea in Education
The Bible College of .Missouri rep
resents a new idea in education. It
emphasizes the essential unity of the
Christiau idea with the spirit of de-
mocracy. Thomas Jefferson the fath
er of the University of Virginia was
the lirst to suggest that the various
religious bodies established their the
ological schools in proximity to the
State Universities in order that in
this economical way the State should1
profit by the moral values for which '
religion stands, while at the same'
time, the churches should reap the;
benefits of higher education provided j
by the larger resources of the State.'
