0 MOKE POTATO CHIPS!
Tlie entire potato industry of the
United States is endangered, according
to potato specialists. A disease, known
as fusarium. has destroyed hundreds
of potato plants in the Rocky Moun
tain territory and in Central Europe.
To gie up the potato as a table dish
would be a hard thing for the Ameri
can people. In the past ten years it
has adanced in price 111.11 per cent.
Yet it is used more cxtensHely than
ever before. What could be substi
tuted for this most popular of Ameri
The opening of the Pulitzer School
of Journalism at Columbia University
marks another step toward the estab
lishing of journalism as a profession.
Four years ago the University of .Mis
souri established the first school. It
was put on an equal footing with the
other professional schools. Old time
"pencil pushers" said it would not last,
it wasn't practical. Many of these
critics hate changed their minds. Ap
proximately twenty-five universities
are giving courses at present.
Four of these schools give profes
sional degrees. Missouri was first,
giving a degree of Bachelor of Jour
nalism. The Pulitzer school with a
degree of Bachelor of Letters in Jour
nalism and Notre Dame with a degree
of Bachelor of Philosophy in Journal
ism follow this year. At the Univer
sity of Cork a professional degree is
given. Journalism is a profession a
profession of the interpreter.
TO SHOW THEM.
Football, for a time, will drop out
of the lime-light. The world's cham
pionship baseball series between the
Boston American and the Xew York
National league baseball teams will
hold the attention this week of nine
out of every ten "fans" in the United
States. Who will win is. of course, a
question that can't be answered.
American league followers say it will
be Boston while the National League
hackers say New York.
If the time-worn phrase "show you"
means anything Boston won't have a
look in. Probably the best hope from
a New York standpoint is based on a
pitcher. "Jeff" Tcsreau, who conies
from Ironton, 5lo. His chief claim to
fame is based on his ability to de
velop speed while pitching.
Tesreau is a typical Southern ap
ple knocked. He is exceptionally large
and says that he lias been that way
ever since he can remember.
In 190S "Babe" Adams, another Mis
souri pitcher, won the series for Pitts
burg. This year Tesreau will try to

Tlie reason assigned by the author
is that not enough men are willing to
spend the time getting the necessary
equipment, the special training. The
essential element of success is equip
ment. The lack of it spells failure.
Those who have the specialized train

portunity. 5Ir. Rowland tells of the investiga

Society of Mechanical Engineers, into

he entered the junior class at 5lis

After his graduation from the Uni

years in William Jewell College and
since that time has lived in Liberty.
He says: "Of the 1,00 people I found

womanhood is alie today; I bein?
the only one of them whose name and
date of death is not entitled to a
