of "Beat-Missouri" signs greeted the

A stranger would have to ask
someone to tell if he was in Missouri

something all you had to do was to
ask a wearer of the Kansas colors
and he would cheerfully tell you.

On the football field it was the
same. Kansas rooters cheered Mis

PRAISE. DUE BAIXER5 JOXES.
Within, .the past .few weeks webjva
passed out 'many compliments well-'l
deserved compliments, Jtooto Pro
fessor Brewer a'hd the""blher men who
made the Tigerfootball team. But
there is one man who should stand
out just as prominent as the others,
who has apparently been forgotten
when the praise was passed around.
That man was T. E. Jones, Tiger
In every game that the Tigers
played it was very noticeable that
they were in much better condition
than their opponents. Not a Mis
souri man had to be carried from the
field during the entire year, while
scarcely one of our opponents has
fared so well. Nearly every team had
men hurt so badly that they were
taken out of the game. Many had to
be kept out of several games.
The greatest contrast was during
the Holla game when time had to be
taken out for Rolla after almost
every down. The Tigers had to call
for time only once or twice during
the game. In the Ames game four
men had to be taken out while only
one Tiger was disabled. The same
is true of almost all of the other con
tests. The trainer is just as important in
the detelopment of a team as Is the
coach and for this reason the work
of Trainer Jones should not be for
gotten. Hats off to T. E. Jones.
PLAINT OF THE BETTOR
All this world seems sad and
dreary; all this kibosh makes me
weary. Let it rain and thunder, too:
pleasures in this vale are few. The
cost of living's growing higher; the
cost of dying's for the flyer. The
world is growing dank and dark;
rotten leaves bestrew the park. I am
broke and sigh for shelter; the
world Is somewhere out of kelter.
It's back to profs and weighty les-
HAitnv i). :uy
sons; back to classes's dreadsome
sessions. I wish that all would cease
their talking; forget football and
mighty Balkan; cease explaining how
it happened that Jayhawk on the
Tiger fattened. Leave me to my
dreams and ponder how to recover
from my squander, how to satiate my
debtors and release me from all fet
ters. Or else I'm through, I surren
der up the fort; I can see the sum
mons beckon; onward to the bank
OUR ATHLETIC FIELD.
Those who saw McCook Field Sat
urday can appreciate a real athletic
field such as we have here. The
bleachers for the Missouri rooters at
Lawrence were about ready to fall
down. The wind whistling up through
the cracks added to the discomfort.
It was quite a contrast for those who
were accustomed to our concrete
A football gridiron is about all
Kansas has in the way of an athletic
field. The bleachers are all of wood,
and the fences around the field are
made of the cheapest material.
The Missouri students undoubtedly
have learned to appreciate what they
really have over here.

Loeb of the University of Missouri,

MISSOURI NEWSPAPER OWNERS
Statements as Published by Weekly Papers in
Compliance With the New
For the information of Uncle Sam
and the public at large, all newspa
pers must now make a statement of
their ownership. This is in accord'
ance with a law passed by Congress
during the summer which requires all
newspapers to make a sworn state
ment twice each year setting forth the
names of the editor, publisher and
business manager; to state who owns
the stock and give names of stock
holders, mortagees, bondholders and
other security holders. The informa
tion must be published in the paper
and two copies of the sworn statement
turned over to the postmaster in the
town where the paper is published.
One of these copies is sent to the
Postoffice Department at Washington
and the other kept on file in the local
office. The newspapers of Missouri
made their first statement under the
new law during October.
The newspapers and periodicals
published in Missouri number 995. Of
this number, 750 are weekly papers
published in 462 different towns, of
which 113 are county seat towns:
Only one county seat, Danville in
Montgomery County, has no newspa
per. The smallest newspaper town 'in
Missouri is Bellflower in Montgomery
County, which has a population of 90.
Lamar in Barton County, a town of
2316, is probably the banner daily
newspaper town in the state. It sup
ports two daily newspapers. The old
est weekly newspaper in Missouri is
the Paris Mercury, established at
Paris in Monroe County in 1837. The
Palymra Spectator bears the distinc
tion of being the oldest weekly news
paper continuously in one family. The
paper was founded by member of the
Sosey family in 1839.
