GIRLS GATHER AT ASSEMBLY
Talks to Young Women by Miss Jobs,
stnn and Mrs. Hill.
More than 200 women attended the
mass meeting for University girls this
morning, in the auditorium, where
topics of especial ' interest to them
were discussed. Miss Eva Johnston,
Adviser of Women, talked on "Uni
versity Ideals." To make of herself
a well-rounded woman, should be the
ideal of every girl, -believes Miss
Johnston. She is here for develop
ment, mental, moral and physical, but
the direction of development depends
upon herself entirely. "Mental de
velopment should stand first," said
Miss Johnston, "but the stepchild, so
cial life, should not be neglected.
Miss Johnston made several sug
gestions to the girls; one, that they
should shun mid-week affairs as
much as possible, the other that they
should insist upon chaperons at all
parties which men attend, and that
they should recognize them. Every
girl shrould make a point to speak

Five cows are supporting a student
at the University of Missouri. G. C.
Taylor of Armstrong, Mo., is running
a dairy at 104 Dorsey street
Taylor and L. R. Robb, another
students from Armstrong, attended a
recent sale near Columbia. They in
tended to buy about three cows, but
instead. Taylor bought six and Robb
one. Taylor brought five of his to
town and gets up at 4 o'clock each
morning to do his milking and de
livering. This takes about five hours
each day. He sells milk cheaper to
those who will call for it.
Taylor has been running his dairy
about a week, but has not had time
to figure out accurately how profit
able it is. So far, as he expresses it,
he has just about made his own and
his cows' feed. He is working hard
to make it pay, for it took the money
