Echoes of Yesterday.
More than half the students who
attend the University of Missouri
hare rooms in the homes of Colum
bia. For the boy whose pocket-book
is lean, work is supplied; for the lad
who is spending his first winter away
from home, a home-like friendliness
drives away the "blues"; for the boy
whose studies are hard and discour
aging, a pleasant and hopeful word
is ready; for the student who is neg
ligent of duty, there is a word of kind
advice and caution.
To the good mothers and fathers
in Columbia, many University gradu
ates owe. In large part, their success
in business and in character. Do
students really appreciate the hospi-
tallty, kindness and helpfulness of
Columbia homes? Do those who take
students into their homes realize the
Influences for good and for helpful
ness they may exert?

GREEK ASD JOURNALISM.
Eery person who expects to enter
the newspaper profession should study
Greek not for an acquaintanceship
with the language itself particularly,
but for the drill in accuracy.
The beginner in Greek becomes ac
quainted with funny little marks
above letters, some slanting one way
and some another. He soon learns
that without these peculiar marks,
set in the right place and at the pro
per angle, his Greek is not Greek. For
a whole year he struggles with
breathing marks and accents. Con
stant study, patience and practice are
required in the writing of correct
Greek. Absolute accuracy is de
As every little dot or mark in
Greek script is important and proper
in its place, but useless and wrong
when out of place, so there are in
Journalism points of extreme import
ance. Improper usage brings trou
ble. The eye of the city editor and
the copy reader must be as quick to
see mistakes in copy and to find the
little dangers that may be hidden
there,, as the Greek student is to ob
serve the mistakes in his prose com
position. The reporter, too, must be
as careful in the gathering of news
and In writing his story, using only
facts, as the Greek student is in ar
ranging the phrases in their correct
order and observing the proper use
The mastery of Greek demands the
same thing as success in journalism

A Cause ef Colds.
Editor the Mlssourlan: May not
one cause of so many colds among
students of the University be the Im
proper heating and ventilation of the
class rooms? Many times a class
room is so cold that the occupants
are not comfortable in their over
coat and cloaks. The same students
who have spent an hour in this frigid
atmosphere may be found the next
hour in a room with the temperature
at 85 and the windows closed. Yet
if a student commits the unpardonable
sin of Bleeping In class, he is severely
criticised by his professor. Is It any
wonder that we have colds ?
A RING OS HALF A RING!
When a man gives a girl a diamond
ring, is it his duty to see that she
wears it? If so, is not there a limit
Out in San Francisco, where lots
of things happen, a 600 ring is said
to lie at the bottom of the ocean,
dropped there Intentionally. Results:
One girl mad, and one man threat
ened with a larceny charge.
It seems that the man gave the
girl the ring. Shortly afterward he
noticed that she was not wearing it
She gave him the pawn ticket and he
redeemed it for her. Chivalrous man!
Soon the same thing happened again.
And again. And again.
Now when a fellow leaves a girl

minding such slight incidents aa that

More Fash aad Less PhIL
Editor the Mlssourlan: Too many
students are going through the Uni
versity by pulling the right string at
the right time rather than by pushing
the right thing all the time. Often
students in arts and science receive
an A. B. degree and are cast upon
the world with no aim. These stu
dents are always "hoping that some
thing will "turn up" or that some
one they know will give them easy
jobs at salaries never less than $5,000
It will be interesting to note that
these same students are the ones who
have "grafted" through their school
career. They have been able to make
fair grades and have done as little
work as possible, always willing to
let someone else help them. May this
not be the. reason why there are so
many good positions at the top of the
ladder that are not filled? This classJ
of students can always fill a Job that
is already filled. But ,can they fill
the ones that are open? The same
case applies to the students studying
for a profession. Unless he takes ad
vantage of the opportunities offered
him in school, there will be better
lawyers, better engineers, better doc
tors and better Journalists than he 13
and pull will do him very little good.
He must have acquired the art of
pushing. If he has pushed himself
through the University, he will push
himself Into a good position and into
success. A. M.
