The new forms of dancing are not

tions the University Missourian has
received. The people who live in town
and who go up to the assembly

Horticulture Men Named to Collect

J. C. Whitten, head of the horticul
tural department of the University of
.Missouri, and Ashleigh P. Boles, sec
retary t)f the State Board of Horticul
ture, attended a meeting of the State
Board of Horticulture at St Louis
last Tuesday. A committee, consist
ing of the president and secretary of
the board was appointed to confer
with the Governor regarding the col
lecting of a creditable horticultural
exhibit for Missouri at the Panama
Pacific Exposition in 1913.
The census work of the horticul
tural products and plantings, which
is just being started over the State,
was approved, and it was decided to
asU the legislature to appropriate
sufficient funds to push the work for
ward in every county.
The board will also ask the legis
lature to appropriate a sum large
enough to publish at least 15.000 bul
letins instead of 5,000 as heretofore.
This was done because the secretary
has recently been swamped with re

According to the letters that come,
the many visitors at the dances see
something in the new styles that
calls for comment. Two letters are
printed here to show the objections
raised, one of these being signed
"Senior University Woman" and the
other one being signed "Alumnus":
Editor the Missourian:
A tide of comment on dancing, its
modes and misdemeanors, Is sweep
ing over the body of University
women. Perhaps their newly awak
ened interest in matters athletic has
made them keener judges of grace and
awkwardness than before. At any
rate such discussion is to be welcom
ed, for never have blissful admirers
of the Terpsichorean art disported
themselves with so littl" elegance
and with such entirely ludicrous ef
fect as do some couples who may be
seen wecklv on Columbia floors, in
fraternity houses and at assembly.
One wonders if they ever sat out a
dance, and devoutly wishes they
would do so, in order to ste them
selves mirrored in the other dancers
They would see a strained, un
graceful, awkward sort of cross be
tween a run and a hop. the girl's chin
rubbing uncomfortably on the man's
coat. And he. poor soul, ridiculously
holding on for dear life, as if he were
afraid that she would get away from
Esthetic? There's none of that
about most of the dancing that one
sees here. Athletic? Yes, in regard
to the amount of energy consumed in
a pastime, which should by rights be
easy and graceful.
You all recognize them; the man.;
hot and breathless, shoulders ior
ward, body bent double at the waist,
racing against time around the hall,
or else circling about complacently
in ten square feet of space; on his
arm a half-crushed individual, her
nose buried in his coat, or her chin
resting affectionately on his shoul
der, if there is a disparity in size.
Anything pretty about it? No.
Can't they do any better? Yes. Who's
fault is it? The man's, for Inventing
such a "clutch" and the girl's, for
letting him practice it.
And this doesn't even touch on

CHOUrS TO HE IX GALLERV
. II. Pomnier To Try an "Acoustic
Experiment" at Concert Tonight.
The University Chorus, at the con

sing from the gallery. This is an
idea of Prof. W. H. Pommer, who has
charge of the chorus." He calls it an
The chorus this year is large, con
sisting of 112 voices. So large a body
of tone, .Mr. Pommer says, should
have space in which to develop be
fore striking the ear. He thinks the
sound falling from above will have
an added mass and richness of qual
itv. He also believes that the gallery
floor will act as a sounding board.
.Mr. Pommer said it would be a
good idea to have chorus galleries
placed above the stage so as to get
sound snace. Some churches, he said
have a gallery for their choir.
The music is a cantata by the Dan
ish composer N. W. Gade, who was
a contemporary of Mendelssohn. It
is composed of choruses by crusad
