are preventable. In conjunction with
the workmen's compensation acts, the
old age pensions act, the public
health acts and the factory acts, all
measures of social reform, which seek
to make tomorrow's world better than
our world today, the insurance act en
deavors to remove poverty and distress
due to accident, sickness, infirmity, old
age, insanitary workshops and un
healthy dwellings. It attacks the slum
owner, penalizes the sweater and
makes the health of the people the
first care of the state. It lays broad
and firm the foundations of a new so
cial policy a policy of mutual help
and good will among all members of
the community, based upon a recogni
tion of the fact that the undeserved
poverty or undeserved unemployment
of the humblest member of society is
l something which closely affects the
' general well-being of the state."
And Mr. Calvert, who represents not
a Liberal-Labor constituency, but the
city which employs labor, gave em
270,000 Get Sick Benefit Weekly.
j Some things are certain in regard to
the act's workings. About 15,000,000
persons in Great Britain and Ireland
, are now insured against sickness,
I when before the act there were about
! C.000,000. The act raised the first year
I $130,000,000. Of this amount the work
j men contributed ?55,000,000. Twenty
thousand doctors are employed to give
I free medical treatment and nine thou-
sand chemists who are the British
1 druggists furnish free drugs, pre
' scribed by these doctors. To the poor
! est workingman is given the same
' medical treatment and the same pure
I medicines and drugs as the richest
' duke can afford. About $25,000,000 has
I been paid during the year to doctors
land ?5,000,000 to chemists. Sickness
benefits are paid weekly to 270,000
workers. The men get ?2.50 a week
and the women $1.75 a week, because
they pay less.
Maternity benefits amounting to $2,
500,000 have been paid. The birth
rate has at least not been discouraged.
For tuberculosis sanatoriums has been
set aside $8,000,000. Twenty-five thou
sand workmen have been treated un
der the act, 13,000 in sanatoriums.
These are the figures, but for the real
facts as to the benefit" brought by
the act one must note the changed
conditions in the workingmen's homes,
the first time walking the hospitals,
visiting the sick, inquiring how the in
firm are getting on, helping them to
mend and curing and assisting them.
You ask me if this is not queer busi
ness for a great empire. Why, it is
adding a new dignity and glory to the
British empire. It is the beginning of
a new era in the history of imperial
ism, the newest imperialism and the
In a certain old Book it may be
read: "For I was an hungred, and
ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and
ye gave me drink; I was a stranger,
and ye took me in; naked, and ye
clothed me; I was sick, and ye visit
ed me; I was in prison, and ye came

see the cures wrought, the shadows
lifted. Xo man or woman in the
1 United Kingdom need lack, under this
act, insurance against sickness, unem
! ployment or the unmerited poverty
, which, to the underpaid, so frequently
I comes with old age.
J But is this not queer business for a
1 great empire?
Let the best-hated and best-loved
I statesman in Great Britain, the author
of the National Insurance act, David
! Lloyd-George, make reply;
j "Adds Xew Glory to Empire."
I "Since 190S, when we had old age
1 pensions for the first time, we have
j had a great empire for the first time
taking a direct interest in the condi-
tion of those aged, those infirm, those
j sick, and those broken. The old the
1 ory was that this was beneath the dig-
nity of an empire. The concern of an
! empire was to see that the machinery
1 of human slaughter was perfect. That
1 was the concern of an empire. To tax
j the food of the people, that is think
ing imperially; but to heal the sick,
to feed the hugry, these are thoughts
fit only for a parish beadle. There was
a great emperor once who added to
the luster of his fame by visiting the
wounded after the battle. Nov.- we
have got this great British empire for
The Coaches Want .-00 3Ien to Come
"We are wofully weak on sprinters
and hurdlers" said Guy Kirksey to the
men who attended the track mass
meeting Tuesday night. "Lake is the
only sprinter in school and when it
comes to real sprinters he can be
beat. Groves and Shepard are our
only hurdlers. There surely are
some men in an institution as large
as this who can do some of the fifteen
or sixteen events in track. They
should be loyal enough to their school
to come out for track work."
Coach H. F. Schulte said that every
man in school who has the time at
all should come out, unless he is a
one-legged man. Some fellows think
they could not run or put the shot or
hurl the discus. What we want is
for them to come out and let us find
out if they can do any of those things.
"Stick to it, men who will do that
are what we want, not the fellows who
will quit after a month."
Men like Captain Terry, according to
Guy Kirksey, are men who should
represent Missouri. Terry seemed
hopelessly poor the first two years
out .but he stayed with it. Now he is
one of the best distance men in the
Bermond, Missouri's great quarter
miler, came out for the high jump.
He was not Varsity material. He tried
sprinting and was too slow for that,
but did not quit. He started on the
quarter and half mile and made good.
"Nick, looked ridiculous when he
ran his first hurdle race," said Kirk
sey, "but he didn't give up."
Xo man knows what prospects or
possibilities he has. If they will only
come out and let us find out what they
can do, we can have a track team.
"We want five hundred men," said
Schulte, "to come out and let us watch
them, see what they can do and then
we want them to stick to that one
thing until they get as good hi their
line as Xick, Bermond or Terry.
Saturday at the annual fall games
and inter-class meet is a good time to
start, we can see then what material
there is in school and from that we
will build our team."

Third Edition of Severance Book
Beady for Pres.
The proof on the third addition of
"Guide to Periodicals," a volume com
piled and edited by Henry A. Sever
ance, librarian of the University, was
sent to the publisher today. ,
The revised edition contains the ti-
tie. price and publisher's address of
the 10,000 current periodicals publish-;
ed in the United States and Canada. '
About one fourth of this number are
either new publications, or old ones
under different titles. The 1914 edi- j
tion of the book will have a circu
lation of 1,200 copies. The first edi
tion, which came out in 1907, had only
900. This volume will sell for $2.50. '
The work of preparing this volume
originally required four months work.
Since that time Mr. Severance has '
kept his book up to date. When he
thinks that enough changes have been
made by publishers to justify a new
edition, he publishes a new edition
