In the last quarter Rolla held Mis
for Hastings and Turley for Lake,
souri on the two yard line. Professor
Brewer "stood pat" on his backfield
and played Knobel, Shepard and
Wiggans the entire game. LeMire
injured his knee in the last quarter,
but stayed in.
Missouri got away with two for
ward passes out of seven times tried,
while Rolla only tried four times,
succeeding in one.
A big. good-natured crowd was
present. Missouri rooters cheered for
Rolla repeatedly and the handful of
Rolla men returned the compliment.
The rooters were massed in the
north bleachers with the band.
The line-up follows:

Postofliee Official Explains Conditions
The situation which confronts the
Columbia postonlce force is peculair,
according to one of the officials. The
University is the factor that causes
the complication. During the regular
session of school there are about
3,000 more persons receiving mail
through the office than during the
summer months. The government
makes no provision for an increased
office force. So, during the school
year, the office is overburdened and in
summer there is fifty per cent less
mail to handle. The postal officials
here say that, as a class, the Univer
sity people receive a ery large mail.
IndiUduals, especially girls, often re-
ceite a large mail, chiefly letters.
The situation is more true of Col
umbia than other university towns
because other state universities are
generally in much larger cities than
Columbia, Where a city has a nor
mal population of, say 50,000, an ad
ditional 3000 persons has little appre
ciable effect upon the postal sen ice.

SilH They Are Higher
Few Years Abo.
The aerage of farm prices of im
portant crops has declined about 6.5
per cent since the first of September
of this year, according to a statement
of the Bureau of Statistics of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture. The prices on farm products
are now lower than they have been in
the last three years. They are 1.1
per cent higher than they were this
time in 1908.
The farmer is now getting 30 per
cent higher prices for his farm pro-
ducts, not including poultry and dairy
products, than he received on an av
erage for the last forty-three years.
Corn is now three cents higher a
bushel than it was three years ago,
but seven cents cheaper than it was
a month ago. The farmer also gets a
dollar more for a ton of hay now than
he did in 1909, but this time last year
he got three dollars more than he
Butter, eggs, and chickens have
brought almost identically the same
prices at the same season for the last
three years. They are about three or

Petition to Dismiss Suit Against
Transfer Men Overruled.
The attorney for R. P. Scurlock, a
transfer man. tried to have his cli
ent's case dismissed in circuit court
this morning. The defendant was
prosecuted by the City of Columbia
for a violation of an ordinance passed
in 1902. Owing to a clerical error,
the figure "1" was used instead of
"0", and the attorney for the defend
ant asked for a dismissal of the case.
The motion was overruled and the
city attorney permitted to correct the
error in the complaint. The defendan
was arresed for soliciting business at
the Wabash station, the same being
a violation of a city ordinance, regu
lating and restricting the soliciting
of business within a railway station,
during the arrival of passengers.

Tears Ago Every Senior in University
Had to Make Sieech.
How would you like to make a
speech to get your graduation diploma
from the Unitersity? This is what
the seniors had to do when T. C. W!l
son, secretary of the State Board of
Agriculture, attended school here. Mr.
Wilson was graduated in 1S74.
"Every senior had to make a
speech," he said yesterday. "The best
orator was awarded a $50 prize
There was more interest in oratory
then than now.
"Each year the two literary socie
ties, the Athenaean and the Union
Literary, invited some speaker of na
tional reputation to address them.
The year I received my degree, Sena
tor Dan W. Voorhees of Indiana was
the orator. He talked on "The Influ
ence of the Physical Sciences on the
Progress of Civilization.'"
Mr. Wilson still has a copy of Sen-!
itor Voorhees's speech.
