Movement to Check the Xew Styles
The wave of 'what is known as
" rag dancing ", generally attacked
as obnoxious, which has swept the
cities, has finally struck Columbia.
Dances at the University escaped un
til this year. Now the new style has
become so prominent that it has re
sulted in a movement against it. In
cidentally it has decreased attend
ance at many fraternity and sorority
No concerted action has been at
tempted yet against the new style of
dancing. Those interested in stop
ping it at dances attended by Univer
sity men and women are working
quietly against it. F. O. Schnaitman,
in charge of the men's class in gym
nastic dancing, was, asked that his
pupils be taught correct methods.
However, this class is not one aim
ing to make men proficient in Junior
Prom tactics but primarily for exer
cise. " Not graceful is the least that can
be said about the present dancing,"
said a member of the faculty this
morning. " It gives visitors at" our
dances a bad impression of the Uni
versity." A musician complains that it is
getting hard to play for the dancers
because they seem to be losing their
sense of time.
" It is a real pleasure to watch the
waltz and two-step properly danced,"
he said. "The graceful glide of the
waltz is beautiful and would convert
any one who is simply opposed to
dancing just because it is dancing.
But it is different now. Many seem
to have lost their sense of rhythmic
movement. No matter what you play,
waltz or two-step, they "Boston," or
The women say it is the fault of
the men. The men say the first
question they hear at a dance is, " Do

with that night had an unmistakable

SPOKE OX SURAL PROBLEMS
PLAV STATE CHARITY PROGRAM
State Reformatory for First Offend
ers Proposed at Hannibal Meeting'.
A definite legislative program to be
sought from the General Assembly
was outlined at the thirteenth annual
state conference of Charities and Cor
rections at Hannibal. This program
includes a proposed state reformatory
for first offenders, the plans for which
have been outlined by Prof. Maurice
Parmelee, of the department of so
ciology of the University of Missouri.
Professor Parmelee is chairman of
the committee on adult delinquents.
The committee proposes that all first
offenders from 16 to 23 or 30 years
old should not go to the penitentiary,
but should be sent to a reformatory
under indeterminate sentences rang
ing from one year up. At the pro
posed reformatory, emphasis would be
laid upon physical and mental devel
opment and the inmates would be
fitted for some useful occupation or
profession, the committee says.
W. T. Cross, secretary of the State
Board of Charities and Corrections
and formerly an instructor in the de
partment of sociology in the Univer
sity of Missouri, gave an address on
the effects of politics on an efficient
management of the public institutions
of Missouri. He declared that there
should be a non-political supervision
of all public charities and penal insti
tutions. He said that under the
present system the state was wastng
thousands of dollars. He urged that
the legislature put the inspection of
public jails and almshouses in the
hands of the State Board of Charities
and Corrections. He made a plea for
a re-organization of the state's sys
tem of charities and corrections on
Prof. Eugene Weiffenbach, acting
secretary of the State Board of Char
ities and Corrections which has its
office in Columbia, says that the
treasury receipts of the board have
quadrupled in the last year, and that
the membership has more than dou
bled. He believes that the interest in
the charity and correction work has
so increased throughout the state that
much progressive legislation along
these lines will be enacted at the com
ing meeting of the legislature.
