Miss Whittier, of the Univer
sity Recommends Books
.Mrs. Willie Hudson of Sparta, Mo.,
visited Columbia for Farmers' Week
at the University of Missouri, and
heard a lecture by Miss Florence
Whittier of the University faculty on
"Book Selection and Story Telling."
By appointment Miss Hudson met
Miss Whittier and obtained the list
of books for children which are on
file in her department of the state
library. Miss Whittier teaches two
classes each day in library work, of
which the story telling feature is a
part. Mrs. Hudson believed that
many mothers, especially country
mothers, who desire good reading for
their children, do not always find in
their respective magazines and papers
adequate knowledge along that line.
After her talk with Miss Whittier she
submitted to The Star the following
article, which includes a list of books.
most of which are included in the state
Lawyers Stick to Their Seats.
The law students can't wear their
"best clothes" to school these days
without taking a chance. Since the
bursting of the steam pipes the other
day the seats are sticky. The steam
and water which flooded the rooms'
softened the varnish, which has since
dried up and formed a dust mulch. t
This very readily sticks to clothing
and is hard to brush out. In some in- j
stances students have been compelled
to resort to chemicals. I

The program for the Elliott-Mercer
campaign next week was announced
at the regular meeting of the com-
Jmittee at the Y. M. C. A. Building
i last night. U. II. Garner, the state
I student secretary, was present to take
I the place of O. F. Field the chairman
of the committee, who is out of town.
More than a hundred men were there.
Beside the above meetings it has
been arranged for one of the several
, leaders to go to each fraternity and
club sometime during the week for
lunch or dinner. The large commit
tee will meet for lunch each noon.
February 20 to 23 at the Y. M. C. A.

Miss Florence Whittier, the Instruc
tor In this much needed library course.
Is a graduate of Leland Stanford Uni
versity, and also of the famous New
York Library Training School. At
various times during Farmers' Week
at Columbia, she lectured to the visit
ing farmers' wives on selecting books
for children and strongly advocated
the telling of stories In the home.
This latter feature of her lecture was
made strikingly concrete by her re
lation of stories to a group of little
ones brought in for that purpose.
A Farmer's Wife In?estlgates.
One farmer's wife, watching the
open mouths and eager eyes of the lit
tle ones who, probably for the first
time, heard of the Pled Piper of
Hamelln Town; of Ulysses and Circe
and the roast pork; of the little negro
who carried butter In his hat, con
ceived the idea of visiting the state
library next morning and copying the
list of books for children which Miss
Whittier considered worthy of filing
there. She thought, too, of the hap
piness which such reading and story
telling might give to an entire family
in otherwise barren and unproductive
hours, and of the general information
along the lines of geography, history,
science, literature to be obtained by
this simple method of entertaining the
younger members of the household.

Members of Committee Say Method Is
Improvement Over Old.
The new method of registration is
an improvement over the old way, ac
cording to members of the registra
tion committee. Practically the only
difficulty encountered was on Monday
morning when a long line formed as
usual. The reason for the delay at
that time was that the committee wps
busy with things other than the registration.
Before the morning was over, how
ever, Jacob Warshaw, chairman of the
committee, arranged affairs so that
there were no long lines formed dur
ing the rest of the registration.
So far as the committee can tell,
there were few errors ii registration.
Almost all had been enrolled by S
o'clock Tuesday afternoon. All the
course cards were returned to the de
partments before 8 o'clock yesterday
The efficiency of the system was
shown by the fact that between 700
and 800 were registered in about ten
hours. Mr. Warshaw thinks the sys
:em will work all right. The slight
defects will be eliminated later.
The criticism of the system, Mr.
Warshaw said, were probably just, but
only for the first part of Monday
morning, for, after that, everything
went along much more smoothly than

mittee are: Dean J. C. Jones, Prof.

men have made the records and Mis

every man who worked, the exact
number of days worked by each and
the earnings for every day.
