oi the students had dropped out,
linn ipaily because no credit wa
givi-n or the course. There arc now
twt tin -live or thirty faculty men
ard only six or eight students in the
clas l'.ut it has proved such a suc
cess that it will be given again next
scmi-ter as one of the regular
branches of gymnastic work, and
credit will be given.
Instead of one class, there will be
two divisions, one for faculty men
only and another for students. The
reason for this division, according to
Mr Field, the instructor, is that the
faculty men wish it. Some of them,
he says, are graceful, but others, who
perhaps have long neglected physical
training, shun the critical eyes of alli
um their fellow teachers.
ifc"l have to have a much larger
"lass next semester." said Mr. Field.
"There ought to be a hundred faculty
men taking this course. The idea is
not a fad. There arc dancing classes
at other universities. I know of no
other class especially for faculty men,
however" Mr. Field got his train
ing in this branch of gymnastics
while attending the Havard summer
school. The course there is excel
lent, he says.

XEGHO PKOHLEM IS DISCUSSER
Women of .McllindNt Cliureh Hold
"The Xcgro in His Xativc Land and
in Ours." was the topic at the morn
ing session of the Ladies' Mission So
ciety of the Methodist Church. This
was an inspirational meeting in prc
paiation for the afternoon, when a
talk was given by Mrs. W. L. Kcid,
the conference president from Mex
ico. I The discussion of the negro was
I led by Mrs. J. M. Dysart. Several
I other women took up particular
points of view. Western-central
Africa is where the Methodists ex
pect to do most of their work and
this is one of the dangerous parts of
the country, but one where service
is most needed. An incident was
cited showing the interest the neg
roes themselves take in the welfare
of their race. A negro woman in
Alabama sold her property and paid
her own way to Africa, where she
began teaching in the mission schools
She is now 70 years old and is still
teaching. She is principal of one of
the girls' schools.
Another matter brought up for con
sideration was the negro's work for

TIGERS WIN AGAIN
Coach Field's Basketball
Team Rolls Up Score
PALFREYM AN IN GAME
Lacey, Speedy Player of the
Pikers, Still Unable to
The Tigers won tbe second basket
ball game from Washington Univer
sity last night by a score of 3S to
12. The game was much slower than
the one Wednesday night. Coach
Cajou's players were unable to shoot
baskets. The team work of the Pik
ers was fairly good but as soon
as they had the ball worked down to
the goal, a try for a basket would be
stopped by a Tiger guard.
livery Tiger was used in the game.
In the last part of the game Stem
was disqualified by four personal
fouls and Coach Fields had to get
permission from the Washington
coach to put I'alfreyman back in the
game. I'alfreyman was taken out
about the middle of the game. His
case of "charley horse" did not both

Hernet plaved the entire game at
e-'iiter. Immediately after the jump

and played there most of the time
Long, high passes from the guards
to him were worked for four goals.
Kernel's pla.ving last night was his
Lest of the season. Taaffe also
played an unusually good game.
Washington used eight men in the
game. Kerr.vhill was unable to score
a basket from the field and missed
tlnee free throws. Iacey, the midget
plavcr of the Washington team, play
ed the entire game but was unable
to make a basket. He tried on free
throw and missed that too. How
ever, his fast defensive work was as
good as the night before.
In the last half Taaffe was fouled
just as he threw a basket. The ref
eree i tiled that Missouri should be
ei edited with the two points in addi
tion to the points scored from the
free throw. The score at the end of
the first half was: Missouri 27,

vaccinated during the last semester
about a dozen faculty men and about
thirty students. The eighteen stu-'

The vaccine treatment consists of
a series of three hypodermic injec
tions of dead typhoid bacteria. This
is to cause the Lody to develop im
munity by becoming highly sensitive
to tho attacks of the bacilli. The in
jection does not cause a sore as in

duces a slight soreness in the arm
and may cause an ae'iing the first
