T1IE SKY STUDENT UNION
"The Missouri Student-Alumni
Union is assured."
Few readers of the Missourian see
ing this sentence realized its sig
nificance or knew of the future which
Is opening to the University.
By the Michigan Union the students
and alumni of that university have
been brought together in one body.
During the campaign for the raising
of the million dollars, in every city in
the United States where there were
Michigan alumni, on the same night
they met to sing songs, repeat cheers
and talk of the "old school." Many
who had forgotten their college days
found classmates and memories.
The Union spirit has spread to the
University of Missouri.
The' Union will quicken the rever
ence held among the "old men and
women" into ambition for the Uni
versity of the future. It will trans
form the alumni into a dynamic force
alert to the needs of their alma mater
and Instantly ready to lead their dia.-
It will be a pleasure to the alumnus
to come back to a home of his own,
the Union building. He will not walk
lonesomely about the quadrangle
searching for some familiar face or
someone to talk yesterday and today.
The Union building will be a great
melting pot for students and alumni
"We are glad to have you back with
i:s"-will be the motto.
At no time in the history of the
IVnersity has. there been a place
.vhsre all University students could
meet on a common ground. The prob
lem is solved a Union building. In
st'Md of organized groups with small
memberships there will be one great
union the student body.
:ever before has there been a
piare where students and faculty
could chat as man to man and not
as instructor to student. Students
have sometimes finished their Univer
sity education with distorted ideas
concerning their instructors. Faculty
men have sometimes grown aloof from
the students because of a lack of a
common bond. It will make the facul
ty and student body a community of
kindred spirits striving toward a
single goal a greater University of
The Missouri Student-Alumni Union
by securing the Columbia Club build
ing is making a more ostentatious
start than most student-alunmni
unions. In Its beginning it will have
a home which is worthy of the or
ganization. The obtaining of the
building is a herald to Missourians
that the Union is a concrete organiza
tion and not a possibility.
There should not be an alumnus,
a student or a faculty member of the
University who is not willing to assist
in the raising of the $250,000 which
will give to the school the permanent
Union building. The Union can only
be secured through their concerted
WHAT'S THE USE I
Systematic play and systematic
motherhood; reading clubs and hiking
clubs; even conversation circles and
societies for the promulgation ot good
table manners! A woman can't even
tat or crochet unless she is a member
of a sewing club. Walking must be
done with a definite destination in
iev; it's a sin against the god, Ef
ficiency, to stop before you get there,
no matter how tired you may be, or
how warm the day is. Day dreams
are not even legitimate occupations;
you must follow some special line of
thought, such as, "Where would I be
if I were not here?" or "What' Is the
why of the leaf that is wiggling on
the fourth branch of yonder tree?"
Either subject is good for a week's re
flection. To watch the changing colors and
lights of autumn leaves while a thou-
sand vagrant thoughts drift through
your mind Is inefficiency. To sit idly
with your hands folded and simply ex
ist and know the mere joy of being
is Inefficiency. To put off a walk or
a game when you are in the midst
of work that absorbs you is inef
Efficiency Edgars we have always
with us. Each day must be systema
tized. Each human relationship must
be confined to its true position with
reference to the others. Garrets are
passe; shelves and cupboards indexed
and card-catalogued murder the joy
of search and discovery. Everything
must be systematized and organized
until life and energy become the tools
But where do you get if you do?
Play is systematized In order that one
may have more time to play, in order
that one may have better health, in
order that one may ha-e more energy,
in order that one may do more work,
in order that one may have more leis
ure, in order that one may have more
appreciation of pleasure, in order that
one may play to better advantage,
that ony may have better health
Shades of the gods who discoursed
on Mount Olympus! What's the use?
The new Moloch is Efficiency and he
throws down all the castles in Spain
and obstructs all the winding paths
of leisure. Who shall stand against
him? And if one venturesome iconoc
last does, what's the use?
The Open Column
It's a Boy.
Editor the Missourian: Born to the
University of Missouri, September 23,
a $230,000 student union. The new
arrival will be christened Missouri
Union. And it's a 'boy.
In the realization of the long-dreamed-of
union the University
women have been forgotten. They are
"out of it" again. The new union was
not christened "Women's Union" nor
the "Men's Union;" it was named the
"Missouri Union," an all-embracing
name, including all the students of
the University. It was to unify and
bind together the institution. The ab
stract University would be visualized
in the social life at the Missouri Union
building; a strong band of fellowship
would spring up among all the stu
dents of the University.
Yet, "If the women of the University
show sufficient interest in the Union
and become members, the board of
directors will provide temporary quar
ters for them. The Columbia Club
will be used only for men, according
to present plans." True, the plans for
a permanent building provide loung
ing rooms for the women, but at
present the Union does not appear
to extend a very urgent invitation to
Why should the women be excluded
from the new quarters? The Univer
sity is a coeducational institution, and
the word "student" does not exclude
either sex. Each is of equal value
to the University. The term "tem
porary quarters" means little to Uni
versity women. The shed at Hitt and
Rollins streets used as a dressing
room for some women's gymnasium
classes is already dignified by that
term. It cannot reasonably be ex
pected that the women will later co
operate in raising funds for a student
union in whose organization they
took no part.
Let them in at the start, and they
will be there at the finish. W. H.

TO CHANGE ALUMNUS MAKE-UP
Official Organ of Missouri Union To
Be Published Semi-Monthly.
The Missouri Alumnus, which has
been the official organ of the Missouri
Alumni, has been selected as the ot-
ficial organ of the Missouri Union and
is to be issued semi-monthly. It will
resemble the Cornell News in make
up, with three columns instead of
"This change does not mean that we
will lose our interest in the Alumni,"
said H. H. Kinyon, the managing edi
torT "We will continue to feature
alumni, and athletic news as before,
and of course the Union news will be
given much space."
Every member of the Missouri
Union Is entitled to one year's sub
scription to the Alumnus. The first
number will be Issued October 1.
Fifteen More Students Enrolled.
Eleven more students paid their
fees to the University treasurer yes
terday, and three more up to 10:30
today, it was impossible to get the
exact number now enrolled as some
of the students who pay their fees
fail to enter the University. The
registrar could not give the exact
number enrolled as it takes about two
days for the office to completely en
roll a student.
