as any student can give close atten

the mind becomes tired and only a
hazy idea of the subject is obtained.
He said that some professors devote

WRITING IN PRINT
Students Who Are Member
of Writers' Club to Have
Class Papers Published.
Prof. Rankin Says He Wants
Students.in Every Depart
ment to Be Members.
Students in English will soon have
an opportunity to see even wetr
class papers in print if they an
members of the Writers' Club. A two
page supplement made up of articles
written by members of the Writers'
Club, will be issued once a month
by the University Missourian.
"The organization of the Writers'
Club came about because of a much
'felt need for a literary publication
here," says Prof. J. W. Rankin of the
English department. "For two
years there have been two English
clubs here one for men and one for
women. It has been impossiDie 10
have a literary publication. Students
doing routine work in English class
es do not have enough incentive for
writing. Knowing that no one but
the instructor will see the paper
makes them feel that it is not worth
"At the December meeting of the
men's isngusn ciud pians were ais
cussed. I suggested that a writers'
club 'be organized, having' for mem
bers not only "studenta in English tait
students from all departments of the
University Interested in writing and
that some plan be arranged to. have
the Ml8sourian issue a supplement
once a montn. in tnis-'Buppiemeai
would be the best of theT papers sub
mitted. The arrangement was' made
with the Missourtan and now the
Writers' Club is organized.
The Plan Is Uaiqae.
"Our means of publication will be
something new and unique in the his
tory of college literary publications.
As a rule writers' clubs have a pub
lication of their own that have only
a comparatively small circulation
among students only. Oar two-page
supplement In the Missourian will
have many times the circulation as
Would an ordinary literary paper
published separately. Besides this it
will be read not. .only by students but
by people atlarge. Because of this
feature In bur publication the Writ
ers' Club qffers an excellent oppor
tunity for practical" training to any
one thinking of taking up magazine
writing as a profession.,
"We wish for all to understand that
the club is not intended ''for College
of Arts and Science 'students alone
but for students from all departments
of the University. We would like to
have as many members as possible
from the School of Journalism. The
chief object of the club is to bind to
gether, in an organization, all who
are Interested In writing.. The mem
bership fee of L25 is oaly intended,
to meet the cost of publication. This
fee covers a semester's subscription
to the Missourian as well as the club
dues for the rest of the year.
" Select Their Own Sakjects.
"Those writing will select their
own subjects. We expect papers toa
University life as seea from the sta-.
deBts' viewpoint, short fiction stories,
plays, essays and verse. The best
papers from the English classes will
be teurned over to the editors. If they
consider them good enough 'and the
will be pabllshed. The good papers
that are not published oa account of
the lack, of space will be ased la the
programs at the monthly meetiags of

POPULAR IN COLLEGE
Appearance Caused It to' Be
Named After Indian
The mackinaw coat which first be
came a fad in Eastern colleges about
three years ago aad is just making
its appearance la the West, had. its
origin la the lumber camps of North
ern Michigan. Because or the charac
ter of their work, lumbermen had
found long coats a great incon
venience, and as there was nothing
oa the market to replace them, they
hit upon the expedient of making
short coats or jackets out of the warm
mackinaw blanket which they ob
tained from the Indians.
These mackinaw blanket owed
their name to the fact that Fort Mack
inaw was. for many years the most re
mote post on the Northwest, and was
the base from which a large number
of Indians received their government
The term, mackinaw, Is derived
from MIchilii-Mackinac, the name, of
a turtle-shaped Island in the strait
connecting Lakes Michigan and Hu
ron, and means in OJibway "turtle."
Hence the blanket at Fort Mackinaw
drew its name not only from the
post which Issued it, but also from tha
fact that Its brilliant, checked char
acter might be compared to the mark
ings on- the back of the turtle.
So a coat-inade from a mackinaw
blanket became a mackinaw coat, and
as such was taken up by the" manufac-
luring concerns.it has for many years
been peculiar to the trappers and
nunters or the west, and more recently
to the college man.
Even now in the lumbering regions
the better quality of coats are often
made from the original blankets, us
ing the blanket border for trimming.
Mackinaw trousers aad short-trousers
are also common In those localities.

The book circulation for January
