GET OUT OF DOORS
Get out into the open!
The beautiful stretches of country
around Columbia are at their finest;

noon, Saturdays and Sundays.
The scenic beauty of the meandering

tances of Columbia. Visit them; the
outing will do you good.
IlEFIXED HAZING AT jr. U.
"Safe and sane" hazing at the Uni
ersity of Missouri has come to stay
No one suffers by the change.
A decade ago the custom was at its
height Seniors sided with the hazcrs,
and juniors were almost the sole pro
tectors of the new students. Many
times all four classes massed in one
Churches, Y. M. C. A. and students
combined this year to welcome the
first year men. Friday night the sen
iors of the College of Agriculture gave
a "feed" for freshmen. Great blocks
of ginger bread and boxes of apples
replaced paddles. At the Y. M. C. A.
"stag" reception, as well as In en
trance lines, sophomores were seen in
every hall helping freshmen they had
never met before.
Yet, to the surprise of many, the
little skull cups are still worn and
the general behavior of the new men
is entirely satisfactory
The new glad hand and student
brotherhood has come to stay, and
the'old nuisances have passed without

personal invitation to attend services
at the church. The slips relating to

dents at, the time of enrollment will
be used in this work by the commit

places his membership with the Co
lumbia church for such period of
time only as ho remains in the Uni
versity. When he leaves Columbia,
his church membership is transferred
to the church from which he came
Special programs are being ar
ranged by all the churches and out-

several churches for the morning
