Thousands of men lie dead, maimed
or disabled as the result of two years
of European war. Thousands more
will meet like fates before peace is
declared. What will bo the result of
this slaughter of all the potential ar

America. Those who heard him when
he was in Columbia will remember the
impassioned defense of England which
he made in his brief address and the
intense patriotism which voice and
words brought out in his poems.
Skeptics said. Why is he not fighting
for his beloved England?
What personal reasons Mr. Noes
might give no one knows. Those who
can picture what black disaster has
fallen upon all the culture and arts
of England, France, Germany, Russia
and the Balkans can only feel that,
whether or not his reasons are ade
quate, England needs him alive, not
dead. A man who at thirty, had
founded a new school of poetry whose
long musical lines and abundant
rhyme popularized poetry with many
unlitcrary persons, who remained
clean and virile, a man to be admired

IS BOOSTING SEED CORN WEEK
Jewell Mayes Helps In Campaign to
Secure larger Yield In Stole.
Jewell Mayes, secretary of the
State Board of Agriculture, has taken
advantage of the American Royal to
arouse interest in "Seed Corn Week."
He shows that the proper selection of
seed corn In Jasper County has in
creased the corn crop five bushels to
"Corn growing is our greatest busi
ness," said Mr. Mayes. "It is conceded
by those who have tried it that if the
seed corn were all gathered before
heavy frosts and freezing weather and
properly housed with reference to
temperature and moisture the average
crop of the state should be increased
from one to five bushels to the acre.
"For that reason the week of Oct
16 to 21 has been set aside for seed
corn gathering, and we hope that Mis
souri generally- will observe it."

Just what would be the procedure if
Columbia cared to adopt commis
Under the Missouri statute of
March 28, 1913, which covers the sub
ject, the first step would be a petition
presented to the mayor signed by
voters equal in number to at least 25
per cent of all the votes cast for all
candidates for major at the last pre
ceding city election. This petition
would ask for a vote on the question.
The mayor, then, by proclamation
ftould submit the Question to the
voters within the next two months. If
more than halt the votes cast were in
favor of the proposed change, the
measure would be declared passed.
But If more than half the votes were
against the change, the question could
not be reconsidered for two years.
Under the present census figure of
9,662. the voters would elect a mavor
and two councilracn. However, if the
population of Columbia were found to
be more than 12,000, three council
men would be elected at the next
regular city election, unless the regu
lar election was not to be held with
in the next six months. In that case
a special election would be called.
Under the new system elections by
