A MECIIAMCAL COW.
Three German students have in

milk. German scientists have tasted
the milk and they say it is good.

BALDNESS AND FASHION
The man with a bald head no more
needs to feel ashamed. Baldness, ac
cording to a Paris specialist, is not
only a sign of intellectuality but it
also is the growing fashion of the
The University of Missouri fcnd
other educational institutions of the
land, according to this scientist, are
contributing daily to the ranks of the
bald. He solemnly avers that as man!
advances in the realm of thought the
more naked he will become on the
top of his head. And woman is not
exempt in this general scheme. Two
hundred years hence, he declares,
there will be no such monstrosity as
the long-haired man, and r00 years
hence there will be scarcely a hair
on any woman's head.
So all ye that are "afflicted" need
not be ashamed. Glory in your glist
ening domes. They signify intelli
gence. They are the forerunners of
l'lll 3IC ALPHA.
Phi Mu Alpha, the musical frater
nity of the University of Missouri, is
an organization with a good work.
Perhaps Columbia does not appreciate
its efforts fully.
Persons living in towns and small
cities usually do not hear the highest
class music. Such entertainments are
too expensive to be given anywhere
but in the large communities. Only
a few can afford to go to the cities
for these concerts.
Phi Mu Alpha brings the best music
to Columbia. This year six concerts
have been arranged. Neither Kansas
City, nor St. Louis, nor other cities
will hear better than these. Seats for
these entertainments when given in
the cities usually cost from one to
three dollars. You may go to the
same concert in Columbia for 30 cents.
A little saving here and there of
money foolishly spent would buy a
Phi Mu Alpha season ticket. A slight
cutting down on cigars or candy for
a while will do it.
It would be hard to estimate the
value of the return on the invest
ment. Such entertainments are of un
doubted uplifting power. In these
days of the plague of boarding house
ragtime it is a fine thing to hear good
music as often as possible.
War clouds again hover in tlie East.
The Balkan States have risen in arms
against Turkey. Five hundred thous
and men are on their way to battle,
and soon the press will tell the story
of conflict and death. In the midst
of great agitation for world-wide
peace comes the news of wars anfl
rumors of war. Surely this does not
look like peace on earth.
Former President Charles W. Eliot
of Harvard has just returned from a
tour of the world. He declares that he
cannot see that the nations are taking
very seriously to world-wide , eace.
Just now certain nations of 'Europe
are very much worried over the in
creasing navies of certain other na
tions. The growing military suprem
acy of Germany is alarming all
Europe. Great Britain seems to be
facing a great crisis. As yet peace
does not seem to be at hand.
With war in five minor European
countries and with the great nations
straining every resource to build
navies, the hope for world-wide peace
is not very great. But maybe these
latest wars are the dying-gasps of the
greatest curse of the world. And it is
probable that the smoke to which"
these wars give rise will stimulate
ihe dive of ieace andthe.irustleFof
her wings will be heard afcove the
roar of conflict.
THE NEW BOOKS.
A New History.
"European Beginnings of American
History" is the subject of a recent
book 6y Alice M. Atkinson dealing 1
with the .development
culture as a background for an under
standing of our own history. She has
made English history the basis of her
narrative without writing a history of
England except incidentally. She has
used the history of England as a
mirror in which can be seen reflected
the whole development of the western
world. ,A complete history of the dark
ages, conquests, discoveries, wars, re-
ligions, and other phases contributing
to general culture and its effect on
the new world has been dealt with
without use of any meaningless for
mulas which invite mere memorizing.

For College Students.
"From School Through College," by
Henry, Parks Wright, is truly a book
for ever college student to read. It

as of all free Governments, is respect
for and obdience to the law." This
quotation from Theodore Roosevelt is
made the keynote of a book for law-
vers written by Moorefield Storey, an
ex-President of the American Bar As
sociation. Clearly, forcibly and en
tertainingly Mr. Storey sets forth the
duty and responsibilities of the law
yer in bringing criminals to justice
and justice to criminals.
"There is a loss of confidence in
the court." he says, "but it is not
due to corruption, negligence or lazi
ness of the lawyers but chiefly to the
system against which it is impossible
for an earnest prosecutor and an effi
cient judge to struggle."
Mr. Storey deals with the delays so purpose is to create a fine cultural at-
often occasioned before and during ' mosphere in our town and in its en
trials. He deems them unnecessary deavor it has spared neither money, I
and suggests as remedies "a higher time nor energy. The men composing '

Would Extend Simplified Spelling
The University library has just re-
ceied more pamphlets on simplified
spelling, showing the growth of the
movement since the organization of
the Simplified Spelling Board in 1906.
This pamphlet is called "The Simpli-;
fication of English Spelling." The
board says it desires to call attention 1
to defects, to urge more uniformity,!
and to obtain the general adoption ofi
the 300 reformed words now used by I
Theodore Roosevelt, and it
twenty thousand other persons.
