EARLY CHRISTMAS SHOl'MXG.
Mrs., Miss and Mr. Christmas hop
per, just a moment. Have you de
cided to do your holiday buying ear
lier this year and get better goods as
well as satisfactory service; or are
you going to wait until Christmas
Eve and then not be satisfied with
your hurried purchases? It is time
to mike up your minds, as the days
for the early shopper are not far off.
Early Christmas shopping is help
ful to both customers and business
man. Doth the .prospective buyers
and the clerks have more time to de
vote to each purchase. Those who
come first receive the best attention
and get the best goods. The clerks
are more obliging and can suggest
more useful gifts to the customers
who comes early to buy. The mer
chants and clerks always greet the
early holiday trader with more pleas
ure and more enthusiasm than those
who come at the last minute. And
this is only natural, too, for almost
all over-worked and exhausted per
sons are more or less cross and un
pleasant. The early buyer gets an advantage
over the late one in having a larger
stock of goods to choose from. Then
too, the displays are neatly and con
veniently arranged for him to make
selections easily, and the goods are
not picked over. Certain kinds of
Christmas gifts necessarily demand
an early purchase. Jewelry must be
bought at least several days in ad
vance if one wishes to have it en-
graved in time; pictures must be
taken early, for there is no guarantee
that the weather will remain clear.
Candy must be ordered early to be
properly boxed for sending away.
The merchants say they will try
to encourage early Christmas shop
ping this year by early displays. And
they promise their customers that
"the early bird will get the worm."
A young man who enters a univer
sity should look ahead to the time
when he is to be married just the
same as he looks ahead to the time
when he will begin the practice of
law, journalism or whatever profes
sion he has chosen. The sooner a
young man does this, the better. Of
course it is fashion for the educated
man to wait many years before mar
riage. That is one respect in which
he is inferior to the mechanic, opera
tive, or farmer.
Often one will hear some young
man say, "I cannot ask a girl to
marry me who has been brought up
to do nothing for herself, and who is
accustomed to have every gratifica
tion and luxury provided for her,
until I can earn enough to enable her
to live with me in that way." There
are two arguments against this doc
trine: first, if a girl is brought up in
this way the sooner she has a chance
to live differently the better it will
be for her; and, secondly, he who
loves a young woman should consult
her as to whether or not she wishes
to marry him before he can earn a
large income. Often when a young
couple marry and the husband has
.only a moderate income, they are far
happier than if they had waited
longer. The wife learns to share the
troubles of her husband and in after
life appreciates the good things
which he has gotten for her and
which she helped to earn.
To look ahead towards a home of
you own with your own little children
should protect anyone from evil-doing
and prepare him for the greatest
joys of life. No young man should
fail to keep himself pure. He should
avoid the vices, avoid the lust and
avoid the use of narcotic or stimulat
ing drugs. Any young man who will
fully wrongs himself by leading an
Improper life also wrongs some young
woman. -He wrongs her if he marries
her because she cannot be so happy
with a man who is impure, and he
wrongs her If he does not marry be-
cause he keeps her in enforced un
For these many reasons, therefore,
a young man should look ahead to

On November 23 every student will
have an opportunituity to get away
from Columbia and sing this song
Singing it at home will do no good,
for everyone in Columbia knows that
Missouri is the best school and does
not need to be told about it
But away from Columbia that is
where the writer of the song meant
it to be sung.
No other trip of the year is as ap
propriate as the journey to the land
of the Jayhawk. Centralia, Moberly,
Kansas City, Lawrence and 'every
town between here and there should
hear a thousand students voice their
praises of the University.
It is the duty of students to adver
tise their school, and above all it is
the duty of students to be with the
Tigers, both in person and in praise,
when they are in the camp of the
enemy at Lawrence. There are a
few people who think that the Tigers
can win when the students are not
present encouraging with their yells,
but ask any member of the team if
he wants you to go with them to Law
rence, then decide for yourself.
Only twice in his college life a
University student has the opportun-
uy to go to Kansas for the annual
game. Tliese are opportunities that
should ot be wasted. Freshmen
and sophomores should go becausu
they may not be here two years from
now. Upper classmen should go for
it is their last chance.
This year it seems a sure victory
for the Tigers. But one can't tell.
The Jayhawkers fight Missouri as
they fight no one else. They have
i on few games this year and a victory
over Missouri would go a long way
toward blotting out other defeats.
They, want this game and will make
a strong bid for it
But, on the other hand, think of
the real joy that will come when you
have gone to the other team's grid
iron and, after the final whistle has
blown, you are the? J victors. The
band will play "Old Missouri" and
then will come "We Won't Go Home
Till Morning." And we won't either.
Not even in Lawrence.
It will be great and you want to
be there. The trip won't cost a
great amount. You can save it on
something else. When that train of
ten cars pulls into Lawrence and
over a thousand Old Guards for
every one who goes Js an Old Guard
step off, Kansas University will
wake up. They will be beaten before
the Tigers get on the field. Mis
souri's band will play Dixie in the
streets of Lawren e on the night of

If you had asked him concerning
men and movements of centuries ago,
which bore the same relation to the
world in their day as Luther Burbank
and Robert LaFoliette do today, he
could instantly have given you an ar
ray of facts and figures. Napoleon has
been conquered; the American Revo
lution is settled; slavery and the
Civil War are past issues. It is these
matters of history to which the high
school student devotes his attention.
The problems, which will confront the
nation within the next forty years and
which are now taking shape, are un
heeded. The common topics of the school
room are isloated. Who will chat
with you on the ablative absolute, the
digestive system of the earth-worm,
or on Sir Walter Scott's style? What
is needed by school children, after
they have been taught to read and
write, is practice with ideas that re
quire controversy, difference of view,
balance of reason and suspension of
judgment, writes William McAndrew
in The World's Work. They need to
know more of the world today and
of the world tomorrow.
Realizing this fact, some of the
teachers in eastern schools resolved
to take up with their students regu
larly some consideration of the chief
concerns of the American people to
day. They introduced the use of the
magazine of current thought into the
school-room. This co-operative study
of the magazine not only acquainted
the students with current facts and
events but it taught them the art of
courteous disagreement and led them
to acquire open minds amenable to"!

f DEVOTES HER LIFE TO tiUMANITY
Mrs. Walter McNab Miller Has Had Wide In
fluence in Promoting Public Health and
Humane Treatment of Unfortunates.
The possibility of having a Colum
bia woman as president of the State
Federation of Women's Clubs has in
terested Missouri women in the work
of Mrs. Walter .McNab Miller, who is
a possible candidate. Before coming
to Missouri, Mrs. Miller was inter
ested in club work in Nevada. She
was the organizer and in 1S98, presi
dent of the Red Cross Society at
Reno, New. and she also organized
and was president of the first wo
man's club in that state.
After coming to Columbia, she or
ganized the work for pure food in the
General Federation of Women's Clubs.
From 1904 to 1908, until after the pas
sage of the federal pure food and
drug act and the Missouri food and
drug act, she was chairman of the
Pure Food Commission. In 1910 and
1911 she was a member of the gov
ernor's commission on tuberculosis
and editor of the report to the gov
ernor. Mrs. Miller is chairman of the Pub
lic Health Committee and a member
of the executive board of the State
Conference of Charities. She is also
chairman of the visiting nurse com
mittee of the local Anti-Tuberculosis
Society, director of the Columbia
Charity organization, chairman of the
Missouri School Patrons' Department
of the National Educational Associa
tion, and member of the State Board
of Charities and Correction.
Worked for Pure Food.
Mrs. Miller's first important work
was as chairman of the Pure Food
Association. This led her into wider
fields and she became an ardent
worker in all public movements. The
attempt to get sanitary food condi
tions took her into civic affairs and
later as members of State Board of
Charities she began to investigate
the care of the unfortunates in the
state and county. While she was on
the executive board of charities, a
training school for nurses in the hos
I1'"1 for the insane was es,abIised.

the attitude of the asylum has
chanced from that of mere custody
to the idea of curing, as in a hospital.
The report of investigations of
county almshouses and jails by Miss
Charlotte Forester, a trained nurse of
St. Louis, has caused the charity or-
ganizations to work for the use of
modern sanitary methods in such in
stitutions. For this purpose a
County Board of Visitors, probably
women, will be appointed to see that
there are decent conditions in the
almshouses and jails. Mrs. Miller
said that in one of Missouri's most
beautiful counties she recently visited
the jail and found nineteen men and
women crowded into one small room
where absolutely no sanitary condi
tions existed. Coming from the beau
tiful out-of-doors to look at these
creatures in their horrid condition,
she said it seemed as though all the
world were beautiful, except man. In

department of the University.
Thirty Years Ago.
The trustees of the University of
Pennsylvania denied admittance to
two young women students. They
were not certain that women should
be allowed to work for the same de
grees that were given the men. The
more radical element among them
promised to consider the desirability
of a separate state college for

Thought a Steam Roller Had
this humanitarian work, Mrs. Miller
has for the last four years been asso
ciated with Miss Mary E. Perry of St.
Must Improve Environment.
After seeing the amount of money
and labor spent by the state and the
counties in the curing and correct
ing of these conditions, Mrs. Miller
declares that after all, preventive
work is what is needed ; that is, the
moral and physical environment
for the Relief and Control of Tuber
culosis, of which Mrs. Miller is sec
retary, is now sending out Red Cross
seals with letters and suggestions for
their sale, to all the heads of schools
in Missouri. The association real
izes the immense educational ad
vantages offered through the use of
the schools and their well trained
corps of instructors, and has deter
mined this year to conduct the sale
wholly through these channels. These
seals offer the most tangible method
of teaching the lesson of health to the
community and to the coming gener
ation. The Staje Nurses' Associa
tion, which most certainly under
stands present health conditions, has
endorsed this campaign to the extent
of offering a visiting nurse for a
month each to the two counties sell
ing the most seals by January 1. Seventy-five
per cent of the money from
the sale of these seals will be used lo
cally in actual fighting against the
disease, and the remaining 25 per
cent will be used by the state and
national associations in their health
propaganda. This propaganda is pri
marily an educational one, conducted
through lectures and exhibits.
