The next basketball games to be
played by the Varsity will be Febru

the athletic board thought that the
examinations would be held at the

held the last week in January. The
examinations this year come the first
week in February. The last week in
January has no games scheduled in
it while the first week in February
has these two games scheduled.
The games cannot be cancelled be
cause Washington is just" starting oa
a trip at that time aad must have
these games to fill out the trip.
Washington has played only Ames
this year, beating them by practically
the same scores that Missouri plied
up. The Ames coach told Prof. C L.

was very fast and, though light they

Arthur D. Call of American
Peace Society Speaks at
SETTLED 11 DISPUTES
Nation Spends 72 Cents Out
of Every Dollar for
War, He Says.
The ultimate federation of all the
world was predited at Assembly this
morning by Arthur D. Call, executive
secretary of the American Peace So
ciety of Washington, D. C.
This conception of the world has
been long In coming but it is apparent
now. From the times when our an
cestors hung by their tails from trees
this thing has been coming about.
From the savage stage, up through
the barbarian state to the present
civilization, the inter-dependence of
one man upon another has grown."
Mr. Call began his speech by telling
of some of the discouraging things
In our present state relative to the
peace movement He was Introduced
by President A. Ross Hill as a peace
worker, college man and former foot
ball player at Brows University.
"Every time a thirteen-lnch gun is
fired enough money has gone up in
smoke to buy a comfortable home,"
said Mr. Call "Fire it twice aad you
have spent enough for a college edu
cation, and three times means the ex
penditure of a respectable clergy
man's salary for a decade. We could
build 1,000 locomotives with the price
of a battleship; we could teach 75,000
persons a trade or give "24,000 a col
lege education with this money.
Tee Much Emphasis ea War.
"Seventy-two cents out pf every dol
lar taken in by the government of the
United .States h- spent ea something
pertaining to war. Two billions of
dollars are spent oa war In the world
"I believe our histories are all
wrong ia their emphasis on war as
the primary factor in social evolution.
There is too much of this emphasis
at least To my mind, law, industries.
inventions and ideas are the Impor
tant factors in this evolution. I be
lieve we could find as many worthy
traits ia the more peaceful charac
ters in history as 1n the 'military he
roes. ' I
"Here's an example of the ethics of
war. Imagine President Hill aad I
have adjoining houses. I tell htm the
fence is six inches too far oa ray prop
erty. He says no. We have a fight
about it He gets me down by the
throat and I cry for mercy swearing
that the fence is where it ought to
be. That's the ethics of war' aad we
both received our ethics at the same
fountain." President Hill and Mr.
Call studied ethics under the same
Peace Heveawat Begaa fa 1815.
"The primary fact about life is that
all life exists that there may be more
life. This principle is back of all our
institutions though It Is only lately
that we are realizing it We can see
this principle at work In the dande
lion. Unhampered the dandelion
grows about a foot high. On our
lawns, mowed down with lawn mow
ers, It blooms nevertheless adapting
itself to its environment and growing
close to the ground. It carries oa its
function, however, aad so does man
evea though mowed down with such
things as war.
"The beginning of the modern
peace movement came ia 1815 when
Europe was sick of war. Since that
time it has grown and as aa out
come of the national and internation
al peace societies we' have had two
Hague Conferences and settled eleven
dkpates which might have resulted
Feu? selections by the University
bead were glvea before Mr. -Call's
speech. President Hill said he had
not expected another Assembly pro
gram aatll after the examinations.
However, Mr. Call having beea ia St.
Louis, he took the opportunity to
brine, htm here to speak. No other
Assembly will be held until February

FOUR ARE KEPT OUT
Visiting Nurse Aims to Con
trol Spread of Disease by
Is there a need for an open-air
school in Columbia? Because ot the
number of pupils that attend the pub
lic schools from homes where tuber
culosis exists, some say that it la evi
dent that some means of segregating
such pupils should be established.
T. Bryant visiting nurse of
saya that there are about thirty-five
children going from such homes to
the public schools. Not only is there
danger' of the healthy children con
tracting the disease but the children
who may already be affected are less
able to recover while attending the
"Children who have a tendency
toward tuberculosis offer less resist
ance to the effects of Impure air,"
says the visiting nurse "and when
they have to sit In closed school
is with healthier children they
endanger themselves and others."
Bar Seme Frem Classes.
Miss Bryant says that there are
four white children In Columbia that
are kept out of school on account of
tuberculosis. Three of these are
more than eight years of age. She
says that all of them might be at
tending classes and their recovery
aided if Columbia had an open-air
The visiting nurse calls on fifty-six
patients, regularly. There are about
seveaty-ftve: 'tubercular invalids la
town. Miss Bryant devotes most of
her efforts to preventing the spread
of the disease rather than to its cure.
She instructs the well and the sick In
measures of precaution.
Net the Climate's Faalt
Last year 4,000 persons died in Mis
souri alone from tuberculosis, while
only 450 died from smallpox' in the
entire United States. Miss Bryant
says that these figures do not mean
that the Missouri climate.-is especi
ally conducive to the disease. . On the
other hand, she says that our climate
Is well adapted to Its favorable treat
ment According to some authori
ties, Missouri climate is as favorable
for the treatment of tuberculosis as
the high altitudes of Colorado and
New Mexico. ""
Jt is the negligence aad careless
ness of the people in this state that
causes such ravages of the disease.
"Oftentimes the work is discourag
ing", says Miss Bryant "for people
seem to be so careless about follow
ing instructions. On the other hand,
the patients are glad to have me
come, aad many ot them co-operate
efficiently in the work."
Miss Bryant works eight hours a
day for the sick. She visits seven
or eight patients each day.

The schedule for' the track team,
which has Just beea completed, to
probably the meet complete that the
University has had' la several years.
There are six indoor aad eight out
door meets. The team will have three
big dual meets besides the large In
vitation meets. Ia the last two years
there have beea oaly two dual meets
and in the year before, only one. Two
of the dual meets will be held here
and the other at Lawrence, Kan.
"We don't have enough mea out to
give us the second aad third places
In the race," says Prof. C. L. Brewer,
"and because of that we will have a
hard time to win the dual 'meets."
There are about seventy mea out for
the team. The oaly mea that are
sure to win are those that can win
first place. If the opposing team
takes as many firsts as the Univer
sity does aad besides this can get the
seconds and thirds, it will win the
meet Mr. Brewer urges every man
In the University that thinks he can
do anything to come out for the team.
The coaching of the team will re
main in the hands of Mr. Brewer this
season. Many of the Varsity track
men, when they heard that there
would be a new coach here this
spring, went to Professor Brewer and
asked him to continue with the team.
The system which is used here was
worked out by Professor Brewer aad
T. E. Jones. If a new man came in,
be probably would try a system of
bis own. This would throw the mea
out of their accustomed work. Oa ac
count of this, although without a
doubt there will be a new man here
soon, Mr. Brewer will continue, the
work with the team.
The schedule for this season Is as
Indoor meets: March 1, K. C. A. C.

March 14, annual K. U. meet at Con
vention Hall, Kansas City; March 15,
M. A. C. meet at St Louis, to which
