THE HONOR FRATERNITIES.
The report from the Committee on
Statistics of the University of Mis
souri shows that in the last semes
ter the social fraternities improved 1.1
per cent over the first semester.
Likewise it shows the sororities as
falling 2.3 jer cent. The report also
shows that the non-fraternity men
fell below their mark of the first se
mester, 1.5 per cent. This would In
dicate that the fraternity men are
improving in their work while the
sororities and non-fiaternity men are
not coming up to their usual stand
ard. All the other classes of students
improved last semester. This im
provement of all but two classes of
students means that the students are
paying more attention to studies.
The honorary fraternities do not
rank as high as some of the social
fraternities and sororities. To be
classed as an honorary fraternity, the
members of that fraternity should
rank abote the aerage of students.
So while improving the standing of
social clubs, let's try to improve that
of the honorary fraternities as well!
THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS.
Ail except two of the proposed
amendments to the state constitution
seem to please a majority of the vot
ers. They seem to please the ma
jority in that no complaint is being
made against them. Amendments No.
6 and 7, pertaining to the single tax,
seem to be particularly odious. All
except these two amendments stand
a good chance of adoption.
Amendment No .1 gives cities the
right to allow children 5 years old
and above 20 to go to school without
paying tuition. It also gives cities
the right to build and maintain
schools for children between 3 and G
and over 20 years old.
Amendment No. 2 pertains to allow
ing St. Louis County to increase its
bonded indebtedness to construct
sewers and waterworks.
Amendment No. 3 gives certain
cities the right to increase their
school ta- a little higher without
calling a special election.
Amendment No. 4 lowers the re
quirements for suffrage to those who
are to become residents of Missouri.
Amendment No. 3 requires a regis
tration of all voters in counties hav
ing a population of 30.000 or more and
which adjoin a city of 300,000 inhabi
tants or more.
Amendments No. c and 7 pertain to
the adoption of the single tax.
Amendment No. S gives grand jur
ies the right to open ballot boxes
whenever fraud is supposed to have
been committed. It also provides the
manner of selecting election officials
and states their qualifications and re
quires that policemen be stationed
near polling places in certain cities.
Amendment No. 9 provides for levy
ing and collecting on each $100 as
sessed valuation a state tax of 10
cents for the support of the public
elementary and high schools, state
normal schools, Lincoln Institute and
OXE SYSTEM IS ENOUGH
To introduce another telephone sys
tem into Columbia to lower rates, is
not a practical solution of the prob
lem. On the whole there would be
no lowering of the rates. We would
merely pay less for less service. The
only solution is in municipal or state
regulation of the system we now
If we introduce another system,
every merchant would have to install
two phones to reach all of his custo
mers. Where would the merchant be
benefited? The same would be true
of the resident. He would have to
put in two phones or be satisfied with
less service. Every one knows that
two phones must cost more than one.
That's common sense.
If we Installed two telephone sys-
terns, one system might buy the other
and we would be back where we
started unless the one company would
operate both systems. And then
where would your rates be? If one'
company owned, unknown to the gen
eral public, both of the systems noth
ing better could be desired for the
company. Every merchant would
have to have two phones and the com
pany could charge him what it
Telephone rates are higher here.
We have much better service than in
most of the towns of the size of Col
umbia. We have connections with
the Bell and tbe Kinloch long dis
tance systems. Eiery boarding house
has three times as many persons to
use the phone compared to the fami
lies in other towns. And the students
are heavy users of the phone. It is
logical that the telephone company
should receive higher rates when they
have to give a great deal more ser
vice, per phone, than in other towns.
Hadn't you better think it over
again before you introduce another
telephone system into Columbia? You,
Mr. Merchant, and you, Mr. Resident.

THE fRAXK CASE IX AX AUTO
J. R. Wharton Tells of the Importance
of This Part of Car.
"The crank case is the main struc
tural part of the automobile." said J.
R. Wharton of the School of Engineer
ing in his lecture on the autoniobiio ,
motor Tuesday. "It bears the whole!
weight of the motor. It also acts as
a shield to protect the moving parts
of the motor fraom dust and dirt.
"The crank case is made either of
aluminum or manganese bronze. It
must be of strong materials because
it lias to bear the weight and vibra
tion of the motor and of the crank
shaft. The magneto socket is usually
attached to the crank case. too.
"There are many kinds of oiling sys.
terns. Among the most familiar are:
gravity feed, force feed, splash sys
tem and air feed. Most cars have an
indicator on the dash to show the
amount of oil in the system at all
"According to most engineers. 30
percent of the repair bills could be
saved by proper oiling. An excess of
oil is usually much cheaper than
broken bearings. The oil should be
kept free from dirt and grit. A new
car should alwajs be oiled too much
rather than too little."
A Stevens-Duryea. 0-cylinder. 33
horsepovver car has been purchased in
St. Louis and will arrive the last of
the week. It is a 100S model. The
school also has a Packard, 4-cyiinder,
3S-liorsepower car which is being
used in the laboratory work. This
car is a 1907 model.
The Moon Motor Car Company of
St. Louis Jias lent the school a chassis
showing the various parts of the auto
mobile. The cylinders and all en
closed parts have been cut away so
that the students may see just how
everything works. This chassis has
been used by the Moon company in
all of its exhibits at the automobile
show s. It has been shipped and
should arrive this week.
