REVERENCE FOR NATIONAL AIRS
The American flag what a feeling
it stirs within every patriotic heart!
The sight of it gUes courage and
strength. The mention of its name
brings a thrill of pride and glorious
How often do orators unfurl before
their audiences the Stars and Stripes,
painted in stories of conquering ar
mies and a growing nation! This is
one appeal that neer fails. It is
natural that any reference to the flag
would stir hearts.
"The Star-Spangled Banner", the
national hymn, conveys the real
American patriotic spirit. Whenever
it is sung or played, every head
should be uncovered the same as to
the American flag. This is required
in army discipline and by certain pa
triotic organizations. It should be
the natural Impulse of the people,
speaking forth their real hearts and
THE OLD THANKSGIVING.
The old Thanksgiving differed very
little from the Thanksgiving we have
today. It is one of the things that
have been disturbed very little by
time. There is very little tendency
among the people of this country to
change this old custom. It is one
instance where one man does not try
to outdo his neighbor. Probably that
Is what makes the day so popular and
On Thanksgiving day the rich and
poor alike partake of the same kind
of food. Almost everyone has turkey,
goose, duck or chicken, with the
trimmings that go with It It is truly
a day of Thanksgiving.
The only noticeable change is that
we do not attend church on Thanks
giving quite as much as we did in
the old days. We have athletic con
tests and other things that attract
the attention of a number of the
Thanksgiving will never be forgot
ten in the United States. It means
the same to us today as it meant to
our forefathers. It will mean the
same to the coming generation.
Every student in the University
will regret to hear that Lieutenant
Ellery Farmer, commandant of ca
dets, must leave the Military School.
He is to return to active service after
December 15. Twenty-two universi
ties, including the University of Mis
souri, will lose their commandants
by a sweeping order issued by the
War Department calling all officers
below the rank of major back to
Lieutenant Farmer has done a
great work for the Military School
here. Since he came he has greatly
stimulated interest in military work
among students. More than 700 stu
dents enrolled in that department
this year. Lieutenant Farmer has
endeavored to give every cadet in
struction in rifle shooting and thus
make him a more efficient soldier.
In pursuance of this plan he Installed
the indoor rifle range and took the
cadets to the State Rifle Range at
Nevada. He had planned to have a
military day here, with competitive
drills, a sham battle and patriotic
speeches. The visiting inspectors
from the United States War Depart
ment have always praised the good
showing made by the cadets here un
der Lieutenant Farmer.
The principal reason why men do
not go to church is that they are too
much absorbed in material success,
according to a census conducted by
Doctor Nesbit pastor of the Central
Presbyterian Church of Kansas City.
Men today think more of their busi
ness than they do of the church.
Other reasons collected by Doctor
AgmSS-ifA-,. ,,'vrarjs i,
Nesbit were high cost of living and
too tired. Men realize that church
attendance means additional expens
es; it means more clothes and the
contribution for the support of the
church and its work. After a week's
hard toil men are too tired to go to
church. To them Sunday is a day
of rest, a day to lounge. It Is to
many the only day on which they
The principal excuse offered by
non-church goers is a poor one. Men
should not be so absorbed in their
material welfare that they forget
their spiritual life. The high-cost-of-living
excuse has some grounds. The
high cost of living has become a
vital problem to many, and the wel
fare of the physical life must neces
sarily come before the spiritual. The
third reason, that of the too-tlred-to-go-to-church,
must be overcome by a
re-organization of -the dally program
of the average man's life. Most men
no doubt waste enough energy every
day to send them to church. By care-
ful conservation of energy the aver
age man could probably do the work
he is now doing and on Sunday not
be too tired to attend religious ser
vice. Echoes of Yesterday.
