Employment Will Form
the New Club
Columbia is to have a mending bu
reau if the present plans of the Y. W.
C A. are carried out, and it will
probably be the first institution of its
kind in the world. It is to be run by
the employment bureau and is in
charge of Miss Nelle Carter. Its aim
is to bring together the needs of
bachelor professors and men students
whose mothers are not available for
darning purposes and to give employ
ment to girls who are helping them
selves through the University.
The idea is to have a central point
to which all work can be brought and
trom which the young women can
take as much as they have time for.
Xo definite plans as to price have yet
boon decided upon: the charge may
be either by the hour or by the piece.
Whether this bureau will serve to al
leviate the disadvantages of bachelor
hood to such an extent as to encour
age its continuance or will show the
advantage of having some one to look
after loose ends is a question.
Last year the employment bureau
of the Y. W. C. A. had more than one
hundred calls for student help, more
than there were girls to fill them.
This year there are ten" or a dozen
already and as yet no girls have ap
plied. Therp is a variety of work
desired. One woman wants a com
panion to stay with her evenings for
which she will receive her room and
board; some want girls to take care
of children afternoons and evenings:
(here are calfc3 for girls to act as
caterers for special entertainments.
Miss Nelle Carter is head of the
bureau and has an office in the old
Cordon Hotel Building.
ROOMS SHOULD BE RENUMBERED
Student .Say Classes Are .Hard to
Find in Unit entity Riiiidimrs.
A renumbering of the rooms in the
buildings of the University, with the
the exception of Switzler Hall and
the neu Agricultural Building where
the irodern plan is followed, may be
made. Attention has again been
railed to this by the new students,
uany of whom yet have not definitely
lived in their minds the different reci
tation rooms, due to the unsystematic
way in which the rooms are num
bered. Instead of beginning with number
one for the first room on the first
f'cor and numbering all other rooms
in direct order regardless of floor,
the numbering could be systematized
some say so that upon hearing r. num
ber a student could at once have some
idea as to what part of the building
if was in at least on what floor. The
modern plan used in all large apart
ment buildings is to start the num
bering on the first floor at 100, the!
feoond floor at 200. and so on, the
first figure of the number indicating
the floor. The rooms on each floor
are numbered from left to right.
The new Agricultural Building of
course is numbered on this plan.
I-ast year when additional rooms
wore opened in Switzler Hall for the
department of journalism, it became
necessary to change the plan of num
bering to avoid having the same num
bers on different rooms in the build

out of their own experience and for
tlie convenience of new friends at the
I'niversity next year, believe the plan
should be carried to other buildings
on the campus.

The candidates for the Tiger eleven
were put through the first hard scrim
mage of the season yesterday after

field was worked on tlie first squad.
Although Professor Drewer still re

squad the scrubs.
The only men on the rooters' Var

NO FEE FOR JAILER
we town is goo;
e City Council Gives
G.H. Ashlock a Month
ly Salary Now '
Estimated Cost On Sextojn
Road Is a Dollar a
Columbia is getting so good that the
City Council thought it wise last night
to grant G. H. Ashlock, city jailer, ta
monthly salary of $15. This amount
will partially make up Jhe deficit In
tlie monthly Income which Ashloik
lias lately experienced from the de
crease in the number of prisoners to
care for. His office Is a fee office.
Strict enforcement of the local op
tion laws and the breaking up of dice
games is the chief cause for the lack
of work for the city jailer, it is said.
Resolutions to pave Seton Road
with concrete were passed by the CUy
Council. This will be the first con
crete pavement in Columbia. The
street will be paved 20 feet wide and
fi indies thick from Garth avenue west
to the city limits. The estimated cost
is $1 a running foot. Brick usually
costs about $3.50 a foot. By using
concrete the city will save about
$6,000 on this half mile of paving.
The condition of Stewart bridge
was referred to the street committee.
For some time complaints have been
coming in that it is in poor condition
and a fire trap.

"The object of this society shall be
to promote international good will and
peace, and to educate public opinion

The people of Columbia will be in
vited to join the society. It proposes
to hold annual meetings on Peace
Sunday, December 3, similar to that
in December, 1911. It proposes" to
entertain distinguished peace workers
who visit Columbia and will take ad

For example, it will ask the schools
to observe Peace Day.
"The Columbia Peace Society is not
and will not be committed to any par
ticular plan for attaining world peace.
It advocates merely the substitution
of a pacific method of settling inter
national difficulties for war. Any
person who sincerely desires peace
rather than war will find congenial
company in the society, and will not
object to its. attitude."
