Ask a woman and she will be af

But system can not be got all at

The main factors in its successful

ANOTHER BUGABOO DIES
The benevolent gentlemen who, un
mindful of the unemployment result
ing from the drink habit, insisted that
saloons and breweries must be main
tained because thousands would be
thrown out of work In the event of
prohibition, may rest assured that
such will not be the case. Employ
ment will be provided for those who
will be thrown out of jobs, and, curi
ously enough, that employment will be
furnished by the brewers themselves.
The keen' business men who have
Invested money In their breweries do
not intend to lose their money when
prohibtion comes, as it must. They
have seen the handwriting on the
wall and are preparing for the change.
The surest sign of this is the manu
facture of beer substitutes.
When prohibition sweeps Missouri
breweries will give up the manufac
ture of beer. They will, however,
continue to earn their dividends by
the sale of wholesome non-lntuxira'-ing
brews. And the men who work
for breweries will continue to work
and will not be cursed by the knowl
edge that their work is bringing mis
ery and disgrace to others.

LOOKING TOWARD CHINA
American foreign trade during the
year ending July 1, 1916, reached
$6,000,000,000. The European war has
given the United States the oppor
tunity to become the world's greatest
commercial nation. But this is not
an uncontested right, for England, de
spite the enormous. Industrial drain of
the war, is increasing her exports.
The United-States will find a rival in
her path at the close pf the war from
trade in South America and the
The possibilities for American
business in the Orient, particularly
in China, are imitated. American ex
porters are looking toward China.
China should' have 325,000 miles of
railroad in proportion to her irea.
She has 6,000 available. China now
spends 93 cents a person In foreign
trade, of which the United States re
ceives 8 cents. This should increase
a hundredfold. The export trade of
the United States to China would then
be one of $2,500,000,000.
Four million pairs of feet in China!
At the present time China imports
'200.000 pairs of shoes, of which only
a small per cent are from the United
States. With a rapid adoption of Oc
cidental civilization, this trade would
increase to millions a year.
The Chinese are learning to smoke
cigarettes an opportunity for the
American tobacco manufacturer.
Bridges must be built an opportunity
for steel workers. Food must be sup
plied. China, because of its recent develop
ment. Is a battlefield. The United
States, because of the war, gets the
odds in its development of Chinese
trade. The Chinese are friendly to
ward the United States. Unless the
United States seizes its opportunity
before the close of the European war,
the sluice-gates of wealth of that vast
country when opened will not flow
into the strong boxes of American
gate, or, perhaps, another section of
School spirit is actually a deter
mination to stand by the team, by
the school, by all the customs and
traditions which make a university
something more than a factory. But,
curiously enough, it is born only in
the mass, not the individual nor the
pair. Hence, the' death of the football
two-some marked the rebirth of
Two evidences of school spirit are
thus presented. The feminine con
tribution Include-foregoing the dis
tinction of an escort and the pleasure
of an information bureau. Most women
will take philosophically the fact that
they are ajarrlng note In the deep bass
1-cheer that goes booming across the
field, and their sense of the ludricrous
prevents their red-fared participation.
Their enthusiasm Is undoubted; their
hero-worshipping tendency makes
school loyalty an easy possibility.
From the masculine viewpoint, the
movement toward segregation on the
bleachers is still more approved.
Aside from the.'moB, vociferous cheer
ing' has a hint of abandon which the
average American condemns; but
given a cnoice, mis same average
man would prefer to watch a game in
company with others who have known
the Joys of participation. Segregation
is probably little denial, especially as
he 'thus obtains one of the best seats
on the field.
Justice, then, points to another
phase of school spirit Consider the
lilies of the field, who cheer not and
sing but seldom, but who continue to
support University athletcis and do
not grieve unnecessarily that the
scheme of school spirit at a football
game requires of them only passivity.

DRAGGED FROM THE PAST
Boone County, rich in history, is
quick to honor her heroes of fifty
years ago and to mark with granite
monuments the spots where the coun
ty's history was made. Her citizens
who fought for their convictions dur
ing the Civil War receive due honor;
the old trails worn by the feet" of
Boone County pioneers are narked,
and the old log taverns, at whose
gaping doors the wheels of the stage
coach are no longer heard, are pointed
out by every citizen and their history
recited. ' .
Yet one historic landmark of fifty
years ago has not been permitted to
spend the rest of its numbered days
in quiet with its old-time friends, and
trails and log taverns. Dragged from
the past, the Boone County jail has
been forced to continue Its task begun
sixty years .ago. Sllt-wlndowed and
thtck-walled, this pioneer bastlle, an
historical place of punishment is at
tempting to accomplish the function
of a modern Jail.
Isn't it time that this weather
scarred veteran should receive Its
Just reward for its long years of
service? The old Boone Conntv in
Praises Missouri Yearbook.
Editor the Missourian: Please per
mit me to congratulate the state of
Missouri on its yearbook of 1915, a
copy of which I have Just had the
pleasure of examining from he hands
of Jewell Mayes, the genial and thor
oughly competent secretary of the
State Board of Agriculture.
Usually one expects to find in these
government departmental reports
little of interest, except to those di
rectly interested in the issues to which
they are devoted, but the Missouri
yearbook for 1915 Is a work of real
art both in its mechanical make-up
and in the matter it contains, as well
as in the manner in which the matter
One must indeed be dull who cannot
see romance in the beautiful halftone
work with which the volume is illus
trated, and Mr. Mayes' "May Time in
Missouri" is an exquisite prose epic
while his introductory number, "Mis
souri, the Center State," breathes a
message of encouragement and help
fulness to "those on whose shoulders
rests the prosperity and happiness of
society." Especially fine and well
written are the feature articles of the
book, showing the splendid co-operation
that has been accorded Mr.
Mayes and his assistants in getting
up a complete and authentic report of
the various subjects included in the
Personally, I feel particularly proud
in knowing that so unusual and credit
able a work had its inspiration and
consummation in a fellow Ray coun
tian, and I feel that Mr. Mayes has
set an example in the get up of this
fine work that may well be followed
by the secretaries in other states.

The Third Amendment.
Editor of the Missourian: What is
the fundamental cause of heavy
court dockets, of expensive court pro
ceedings, and incidentally, heavy
taxes? .Statistics show that 75 to 85
per cent of crime is directly or in
directly caused by liquor; then why
allow the sale of It; why help to
make not only crime and poverty
but men who, a part of the time are
incapable of clear thinking?
Does the clouding of the brain for
a time. make any man more canahife
of attending to his business? Has any
man or body of men a moral right
to sell liquor or permit its sale, when
it degrades other men and deprives
families of food, 'clothes and a clear-
eye, sane and capable head of the
Do you care more for yourself and
your appetite and the business in
terests of the liquor dealer than you
do for your wife and children and
your own business Interests? Does It
pay; who does it pay?
Missouri pays $80,000,000 annually
for liquor, according to the statement
or the brewers in the Kansas City
Journal. Why not put a stop to that
waste and divert it into legitimate
business? What is legitimate busi
ness? Put Missouri on the prosperous
side, help to put that $80,000,000 into
the hands of the grocer, the butcher,
the dry goods merchant into legiti
mate business! Help to prevent chil
