LIKED THE STUDENTS' WORK
St. Louis Republic Comments on Ylsit
of Journalism Seniors.
The St. Louis Republic of today, un
der the title of "A Welcome Invasion,"
thus comments editorially on the visit
of a party of journalism seniors to
the Republic office Friday night:
"In other days it was a fashion of
journalism to record the visits of in
teresting strangers to editors offices
with many stately compliments and
expressions of personal esteem. It is
not the fashion to do so now, but the
custom is worthy of revival when a
party of seniors from a school of
journalism comes to see a newspaper
In the making and to try their 'pren
tice hands at helping to, make one. The
Republic has received such a visit
from nine seniors of the Missouri
School of Journalism and was glad
to give them a little taste of real work
and glad to give its space to the prod
uct of that work. H ad their writing
been scattered through columns of the
paper Instead of gathered In one
place it is a safe guess that Republic
readers would not have noticed the
difference between It and that of more
experienced workers. They have learn
ed what -is elementary in their craft
and are about to acquire the further
Instruction that comes only from the
repetition and variety of daily prac
tice. It is safe to promise them many
a monotonous day's work, a world
of trival, irksome things to do, a day
of zestful accomplishment now and
then, a living and a little more and an
opportunity for useful service which
is wide enough to engage the best
there is in any man who is fitted for
the work, however great his endow
ment of mind and character may be."
The stories referred to as having
been written by the students were
published in two full columns of the
city edition of the Republic Saturday.
They were written, edited and "head
ed" by members of the class.

THEY WANT A MODERN SCHOOL
Farmers Near Atlanta, Mo, See Need
of Better Educational Facilities.
A rural school with an auditorium
and a gymnasium in addition to the
classrooms and laboratories Is what
a group of farmers near Atlanta, Mo.,
want for their children.
Six or eight families have been sup
porting the Union School five miles
from Atlanta. There are only eleven
pupils enrolled but they have a ca
pable instructor and two years of high
school work Is given. Mr. Slocum,
who haB charge of the school, goes to
and from his work in an automobile
and incidentally takes the children
rides over the country. Pupils and
teacher seem to be in perfect har
mony, and the progress of the school
is their first interest
The school is small but attractive,
having tables and chairs rather than
the ordinary desks. A large bookcase
contains the school library. The walls
are decorated with pictures and maps.
Realizing the profit in better educa
tional facilities as shown by the suc
cess of this little school, the farmers
are trying to extend its Influence and
have a building that will accommo
date all the children in the entire com
munity. They want a school that will
offer a four-year high school course
and provide a place for community
entertainments of various kinds. The
auditorium of such a building could
also be used for church services.
On Monday and Tuesday of this
week the farmers of the Union School
district had meetings to boost the
L community house proposition. M. F.
Miller, professor of soils In the Col
lege of Agriculture, and J. Kelly
Wright of the State Board of Agricul
ture, were among those on the pro
