sociation met some time ago for the
discussion of the establishment of the
coffee honses as a substitute for sa
loons and adopted as a Blogan the'
phrase "Coffee as a Substitute for
Liquor as a Stimulant"
People drink in saloons because
they like stimulants and also be
cause at the bar they can often meet
their friends and chat with them.
Coffee is also a good stimulant, and
the coffee house can offer to the peo
ple a much better meeting place than
the saloon, with none of its evil.

"IT CANT BE DID"
Standardized dress is a laudable
tendency, but an impossible perma
nency. As a protest against Fash
ion's enslavement of womankind and
the sacrifices to Mammon that Fash
ion entails, standardized dress is ex
cellent as a tendency. Few women
of character will fail to sympathize
with a movement toward simplicity
and economy in clothing. But uni
forms for women! Estheticism for
bids. Mankind loves variety. The desire
for individuality may not be an in
eradicable instinct, but good-looking,
suitable clothes are at least a great
pleasure to both men and women.
Admitting the excessive dominance
of too rapidly changing styles, the
enormous expenditure of money on
women's clothes and the tragedy of
too little money to gratify the love of
prettlness, few pleasures can be
bought so cheaply and enjoyed by so
many as a becoming wardrobe. Few
reforms could add a deeper drabness
to the dull gray of life than the stand
ardization of women's clothing to a
point even as great as that establish
ed by men.
If the aim of the "Uniforms for
Women" propaganda is to lift and not
to attain, it merits enthusiastic sup
port. ,But as an actuality "it can't
STATE PRESS OPINION
From the Clinton Dally Democrat:
Bridge, golf and poker have given
way to the new game of "Moving the
Movies." If you don't believe it, take
your post on alternate days and
nights at the doors of each of the the
aters in Columbia, count those who
issue forth and note the varying kinds
and degrees of humanity. Uncon
sciously you must notice that over and
over the same faces occur and that
these faces are marked by a sort of
daze, like that of the boy in the loft
waked by the call to dinner from a
dream of Jesse James.
Xow that a large portion of Colum
bia's population has either visited or
been visited in the last month, it is
time to ask the question, "Have you
ever heard of a better telephone ser
vice than that Columbia affords?"
Xone can tell of more rapid, courteous
SUSTITUTE FOR THE SALOON
Many years ago France undertook
the work of establishing in Paris
great coffee houses with the purpose
of changing the meeting place of the
people from saloons to coffee houses.
Today in the United States this prob
lem Is seriously under consideration,
and it may not be long before this
country will have in its largest cities
coffee houses as substitutes for sa
loons. m Prohibition Is growing, fast in Am
erica. But prohibition will never be
completely successful unless a sub
stitute for the saloon is provided for
the people to meet and to talk about
things which interest them most. The
moving picture theater has grown Im
mensely! but it never will take the
place of the saloon. The abolishing
of the saloon leaves no place for
general social meeting, no poor man's
A good substitute for the saloon Is
the coffee house on the plan of those
in existence in Rio de Janeiro, where
the people go in to dring a cup of
coffee and to meet and to talk with'
their friends. The saloon In tne Unit-'
ed States serves much the same pur
pose as the coffee house In Rio.

In the school notes of this paper
somes days since appeared a friendly
mention of President Hill, of the State
University, and an expression of dis
approval of certain attacks being
waged upon him.
Members of the University Board
of Curators are denying that any at
tempt is being made to discharge
President Hill; yet there are signs
that this work is going on just the
same. And his friends are not idle
as is shown by the resolutions that
were adopted by the St. Louis Cham
ber of Commerce and the sending of
a strong delegation of business men
to Columbia to give personal back
ing to these resolutions.
This paper yields to none .in its in
tense and partisan devotion to De
mocracy. It would hasten the day
when all men and women shall be
Democrats. But if any Democrat de
mands "Prexy" Hill's head upon a
charger because he has refused to
show partisan bias, we balk! If he
has greatly deteriorated as an edu
cator; if the great institution he
heads is languishing as a result of his
errors and manifest incapacity; if a
rare opportunity exists to replace him
by a man of exalted superiority, we
might better understand this move
ment. But as the matter presents
itself to us, we don't care a copper
what are his politics or whether he
was born in this country or in Cana
da. He is well doing his work, is be
loved by the student body and has the
confidence of the alumnae. The Dem
ocratic party cannot afford to coun
tenance a fight either upon the Uni
versity or upon President Hill who
has stood as its defender and has
fought for its rights.
The Democratic party was not re
sponsible for the financial plight of
the University. President Hill was
neither responsible for it nor was he
oound to suppress the fact. As we re
member it. the leading Democratic
paper of Columbia went much furth
er than President Hill in pointing out
the acute financial difficulties of the
Missouri is rich in resources of
higher education. We have five Nor

these are, in a sense, local, maintain
ed for special training and for the
convenience of contiguous counties.
We have but one University. Its sup
port should not be sectional or parti
san. We should rise above quibbles
and wrangles. Holding no brief for
President Hill's defense, we deplore
the attacks made upon him and the
uninenaiy attitude maintained in

Mrs. John Windsor, general secre-,

Virgil Garnett was the leader of

The dairy department, of the Col

Chief Bis and the Missouri Josephine
Sarcastic, two pure bred Holstein
cows, to G. G. Davis, a dairyman liv

Kansas Coeds Against Aati-Snokers.
The girls at Kansas Wesleyan Uni
versity at Salina, Kan., have expressed
an utter lack of sympathy with an
anti-smoking movement among the
young men. Some of the young men
recently organized an anti-smoking
club and pledged themselves not to
swear or gamble. They requested
the young ladies to refuse to have
dates with all men who had not sign
ed the pledge. The girls answered
that each felt she had ample time
to reform a man after she married

"SAFETY FIRST," SAYS CALENDAR
Railroad Publication Warns
dren to Keep Off Tracks.
The University Elementary School
has received from the Pennsylvania
Railroad System several large dis
play calendars which warn children
to keep off railroad tracks. "The
Dangerous Shortcut" is the title of
the calendar, and it has a colored
picture showing boys and girls cross
ing tha rails as a train draws near.
Beneath the picture in large type is
the warning: "Every year more than
5,000 American boys, and girls and
grown folks who take such risks as
these throw their lives away. Don't
you be one-of them."
Every available space throughout
the calendar is filled with a direct ad
monition. "Make safety one of your
resolves" is a timely hint for Janu
ary. "A short cut across the tracks
may save you a hundred steps and
cost you a leg or an arm or your life.
Don't take this chance." October
brings this bit of philosophy to the
school child: "You have two arms,
two legs and one life, and you need
