UNIVERSITY M1SSOURIAN. WEDNESDAY, MAY 15, 1912.
There's just as much profit for us in sell
ing you a pair of shoes that doesn't fit you as
one that does, but there isn't as much pleasure
in the transaction for either of us.
We know you will get as much value
and as much service out of our misfitted
shoes, but we know that our shoes fitted our
way are what you ought to have and what
we'll sell vou rf you'll let us.

qn going into theseretiring rooms.
Representative William W. Rucker
of Missouri is the man in Congress
who can get away with the stunt
without seeming incongruity.
Judge Rucker is just as plain as an
old shoe, and a corncob pipe looks
entirely at home in his face, whether
he happens to be sitting on a park
bench, strolling across the capitol to
the House office building or lolling
bark in one of the mahogany arm
chairs of the speaker's lobby, with
his feet on a $.",00 Kermanshah rug.
The judge is just a plain country
man, with no 6tyle about his dress
or bearing, but with a something in
his face that says he feels himself
superior to furniture and fixtures,
however sumptuous they may be.

In Abolishing Tips Begin With the
Senate. Life Suggests.
From Life: We are inclined to
agree with those waiters who have
recently protested against a bill pre.
sentcd "to the New York Legislature
for the purpose of stopping tips. The
waiters, in their defense of this bill,
s:y that if it is passed and they are
no longer permitted to receive tips,
they cannot make both ends meet,
and they feel it is unjust.
While we object to 3ny system of
tipping, we see no reason why the
poor waiters should be singled out
as the solitary exception to a univer
sal Mile. Tipping, as a principle, has
thoroughly imbedded itself in Amer
ican life. The idea of the tip is. that
when you ask anybody to do any
thing for you, who is already paid
for doing it, you either wish to re
ward him in some way for his serv
ices or you do it under compulsion.
And no matter in what stratum of
society we may have our being, this
rule holds good.
Mr. Morgan, when he reorganized
the steel trust, receives! a tip from
I'ncle Sam of about 0 million dol
lars: practically all that Mr. Morgan
did was to be on the spot, look pleas
ant, and hell) a few people on with
When Mr. Roosevelt started out
on his highly baptismal career he
discovered that by tipping the rail
roads slightly in the shape of re
bates he got special services, and
he did it so successfully that now
(to quote (lilbert) he is not only rul
er of the "Queen's Navee." but also
of other principalities not necessary
No matter how the tip is render
ed, whether it is handed over in hard
cash in plain sight, or whether it
akes the form of a pleasant social
function, it is one and the same
The waiters, therefore, are right
'u their contention that they should
not be singled out. If we are going
to abolish tips, we should begin with
the 1'nited States Senate and not
with the Waiters' Union.
