Rnmor of Change of Location De
niedMust Remain Here.
There has been some talk through
out the state to the effect that Ste

Columbia to Liberty. This was based
upon the report P. W. Padelford, sec
retary of the Northern Baptists As
sociation, made last winter after visit
ing Missouri. Mr. Padelford suggest
ed that all the Baptist schools for
girls be centered at Liberty. No ac
tion has ever been taken on this sug
gestion. E. W. Stephens, member of the
Board of Curators of Stephens Col
lege, told a Missourian reporter this
morning that there is no probability,
nor even possibility, that the location
of Stephens College will be changed.
"The charter calls for 'the school to
be at Columbia," said Mr. Stephens;
''the gifts have been made to the col
lege on condition that the school be
here, and the consent of the board
would have to be obtained before any
change could be made."

"The late rains and fair weather
will allow the farmers to get their
wheat in excellent shape," says J. M.
Jordan, institute lecturer of the State
Board of Agriculture. "Although
some of the wheat is a little late, it
will still grow through the winter in
pretty good condition. Two dollars a
bushel for wheat Is mighty attractive.
Even the fine hog prices do not make
farmers hog hungry when they get
$1 a bushel for their corn, too."

A change in the manner of choosing
the members of the Board of Curators
was made at the recent convention of
the Missouri Baptists Association at
Liberty. Formerly members of the
board were selected by the Missouri
Baptists Association, but in accord
ance with a report made by Doctor
Charters the board will henceforth he

a few other changes suggested by
