Coach Cayou of Washington is an j
old Carlisle man and coaches his
team in the same tactics that make
the Indians a winning machine year
after year. The backfield of Wash- I
ington is composed of seasoned play-
ers, men who obtained their i'ootbaIl I
experience in the high schools of St.
Louis and were fast men even before
they came under the training of
Cayou. From the reports of the
games that they have already played
this season, they are fast, tricky and
finished players, men who work to
gether as a machine and not as stars,
and whose offensive work is little
short of wonderful.

SOME REALLY "CUBS"
"My Name Was First, But
the Paper Put It Last," Is
Complaint of One.
Stephens College, falling in line
with the progress of the times, has
instituted in its advanced English
course, a sub-department of journal

only two weeks, but already there
hovers about the college a sort of
newspaper atmosphere and many a

Whenever a few girls gather to
gether at the college now, there is a
girl reporter on the scene, pencil- and
pad in hand, anxious for some "copy"
to turn in next morning.
The news-writing work is under the
litorium. The direction of Miss Eleanor Kleeman, a

will cive the ' turns in daily her "stories" to the

, role of censor and copyreader. Miss
Kleeman, after applying the proverb
ial, blue pencil to the girl's copy, puts
it in safe keeping until some repre
sentative of a town paper comes in
search of college news.
It must be confessed that some of
the college reporters are in the "cub"
class so far. They have a tendency
to "pad" their stories and the "who-what-where-when"
of a storv is often
found as near the beginning as the

The journalistic idea, however, has
found favor at Stephens College, and

TAX COLLECTIONS FALL OFF
Farmers Too Bnsy with Crops to At
tend to Assessments.
M. G. Proctor, deputy county col
lector, is in Hallsville today, complet
ing the township collections for this
year. The law requires that the col
lector spend at least three days in
each municipal township of a county
each year. This arrangement is for
the convenience of the taxpayers, giv
ing them an opportunity to pay with
out the trouble of coming to the office
in Columbia. Boone County has
seven municipal townships. Twenty-1
two days was the time necessary this I
year to complete the collections.
J. R. Jordan, county collector, an- j
ticipates a slight falling off this year.
as the collections for this week have
not been up to standard. He at
tributes this to the fact that the far
mers have been taking advantage of
the good weather to gather the large
corn crop, and did not take time to
meet the collectors. Collections from
residents of towns wcre about the
same as last year.

"Selling comprises four elements:
salesman, buyer, article and sale. It
is these four things which a company
must study to get rid of its goods.
"Salesmen have only recently been
recruited from the ranks of college
men. Sales managers are finding that
the highest education is none too good
for salesmen. The college makes a
man a good mixer among his fellows.
It rubs off the provincial crjdities.
The college man is more interested in
the side-interests of his customer. He
is also most easily adaptable to
changing surroundings. Even R. T.
Crane, the manufacturer who wrote
a number of articles on what he de
clared was the futility of our col-
lieges, had a large number of college
mien on his staff of salesmen."
Professor Hibbard will continue his
lecture next Tuesday night.
PROFS' IN A DANCING CLASS
0. F. Field Expects Other Faculty and
Business Men to Take Work.
The gymnastic dancing class start

day night with eighteen members, in
cluding three faculty men. The class
tried first elementary steps and will
repeat these each night for some time,
thus giving new members an oppor
tunity to learn the work.
Fancy steps, glides, change steps
and the gallop steji will be taught at
first. The work will gradually lead
up to polkas, folk. Russian and Scot
tish dances. Later in the year the
class may try the Hi'Mand fling.
"This is not a hard dance." said O. F.
Field, instructor in physical educa
tion, "though it is complex and diffi
cult for the becinner."
Mr. Field expects other faculty men
to join the class. "We would also
like to have some of the young busi
ness men of Columbia take the work."
"The movements will give the best

E FOR A FLUSHER
Committee Will Recommend
Purchase of Street Clean
The street committee of the City
Council, which consists of Fountain
Rotlnvell, E. S. Stephens and W. .1.
Hetzler, has decided to recommend
the purchase of a street flusher for
street cleaning. The Commercial Club
discussed last night the matter of
aiding the council in the purchase of
a flusher but decided to await the de
finite action of the council.
The street committee favors the
flusher as the most sanitary and eco
nomical way of cleeritrig the streets.
E. C. Clinkscales, superintendent of
the water and light plant, estimates;
that it will not take more water to!
clean the streets one a day with the
flusher, on demonstration here, than
it does to sprinkle them. But the
sprinkler does not remove the
dirt, making the system of sprinkling
and sweeping more expensive than
the system of flushing.
The street committee is not neces
sarily going to recommend the pur
chase of the machine on demonstra
tion here but will recommend the
purchase of a flusher. As no other
company has offered to demonstrate
a flusher this one will probably be
J. H. Hill and H. R. Jackson or the
Hill and Jackson Coal Company, who
have been sprinkling the streets, say
that if given the water that it will
take to flush the streets they can
clean the streets better than can be
done with the flusher and can save the
city the expense of buying a flusher,
about $900. Hill and Jackson have
three sprinklers and a largo sweeper.
They say if the streets are sprinkled
before sweeping it is as sanitary as
washirtg off the dirt.
Their proposition to sell their
street cleaning apparatus at the price
of the flusher did not seem attractive

NEW CARRIERS ABOUT DEC. 13.
Postmaster Remley Will Recommend
Men for Places.
"It will probably be as late as the
middle of December before the new
carriers are put on." said Postmaster
E. A. Remley this morning. "While
the inspectors were here they wrote
the department at Washington and
recommended the new carriers. It
will now be necessary for the depart
ment to write to me asking for recom
mendations. After I have made these
recommendations for the places it
will be necessary for the men to get
a civil service approval before they
can go tq work."
Student to Test Cows.
C. A. Burns, a junior in the College

of C. M. Long, a former student here
in the College of Agriculture. The
test lasts seven days and any cow
which produces a sufficient amount of
butterfat In that time will be placed
on the advanced registry list of the

DR. BELDEN ON THE DRAMA
Restoration Period Discussed in Talk
Before Art Lowers Guild.
After giving a brief survey of the
decline of the Elizabethan drama. Dr.
II. M. Beldcn talked before the Art
Lovers' Guild last night on "The
Drama of the Restoration Period."
"They did English Literature no
wrong," he said, "by closing the thea
ters in 1C42.
"The curtain rises again in lfiCO."
he continued, "upon a different situa
tion. Not certainly at first sight upon
one of more moral or spiritual prom
ise; yet one which was to lead to a
new and consistent view of life and
society and to produce a vigorous and
worthy, if not exalted, literature."
After briefly outlining the new con
ditions. Doctor Belden spoke of the
French Influence and then took up
the draamtic theory. He mentioned
several significant kinds of drama,
and said that Dryden was the great
representative figure in this age, but
not the best dramatist.
