About sixty tired and sleepy stu
dents rode into Columbia this morn
ing from Chicago. Part of the 125
who made the trip to the Internation
al Live Stock Show returned yester
day, and the rest will arrive either
today, or tomorrow.
The most impressive thing about
the trip to most of the students was
the welcome they received at the var
ious places they visited. Manufac
turer, broker, jobber, editor busy
men of all professions stopped work
long enough to smile, shake hands
and show their whole establishment
to the Missourians. They welcomed
scrutiny of their plants and were cl-
ways ready to answer all questions.
Ten dairy students, with Prof.L. G.
Rinkle, carried out a two-day pro
gram. They visitea tne uunningnam
Ice Cream Company, Borden's milk
plant, three butter commission hous
es. The aionarcn uoia storage uom-
pany. the Butter ana Egg Excnange
and the De Laval Cream Separator
Company. They visited Borden's to
study sanitation and efficiency. This
company ranks the highest of any in
Chicago in these two respects, ac
cording to Professor Rinkle.

Grill. A talk was given by Professor
Jarvis, formerly of Purdue University.
The men interested in poultry and
eggs visited the commission houses,
the Poultry Board, Butter and Egg Ex
change, the Chicago Cold Storage
Company and Swift's Packing House
with Prof. H. L. Kempster. They took
lunch Monday at the Hamilton Club
with Paul Mandeville, one of Chicago's
big egg brokers, and, according to
Professor Kempster, the best Informed
man on poultry marketing In the city.
Sajs Egg Boycott Won't Boost Prices.
Mandeville talked informally to the
group for more than two hours.
Among other things he gave it as his
opinion that the boycott on eggs in
Chicago would not amount to much
and that a corner on eggs was not
forcing up the price. Such -a mono
poly, he thinks, is an impossibility.
The Poultry Board and Butter and
Egg Exchange were of especial inter
est to the dairy and poultry students.
Here they saw Chicago's market in ac
Prof. E. H. Hughes was in sharge
of the students interested especially
in live stock. This group spent most
of their time at the packing houses,

students attended the live stock show
and visited various points of interest
in the city.

Carl C. Taylor, However, Advises
Freshmen Not to Attempt Too Much.
"Is there any type of man a col
lege education does not benefit?" was
one of the written questions at last'
night's meeting of the Freshman Dis
cussion Club In the Y. M. C. A. Build
ing. Carl C. Taylor, who is giving a
series of talks before the club, an
swered It in the negative, after saying
there might be a few exceptions.
Mr. Taylor advised the freshmen to
forget their studies for a couple of
hours every day and take some physi
cal exercise. "But be careful." hp
said, "not to try to do too many
things. Sociology has a law of lim
ited range, and it has been shown that
a man can do well only a comparative
ly small number of things. The stu
dent must discriminate."
The series will be concluded next
Tuesday night when Mr. Taylor will
speak on "The College Man's Place in
the World." However, the club nrob-
ably will be continued after the Christ
