To build a house all by himself was
the boyhood ambition of George God
frey Blaser, 112 Cousins streets. Mr.
Blaser has lived in Columbia four
teen years. He makes a specialty of
plastering and stucco finishing. Al
though not a carpenter, he resolved
to realize his boyish dream and in
April, 1915, he bought a lot, CO by
14C feet. He drew his own plans and
began the construction of his house.
In November, 1915, he finished the
roof and floors, and he and his fam
ily moved in. Since that date, Mr.
Blaser has given his spare time after
his day's work to completing the
house. He expects to finish it by
The house is bungalow style. The
foundation is made of field stone and j
the superstructure is built of hollow
tile. The house consists of a recep

kitchen, butler's pantry and bath
room. The reception hall and dining
room are separated by glass doors.
The hardwood floors and wood work
are In light oak and the open fireplace
in the reception hall is made of brick
left over from the Boone County
Tavern. Crannies are built in the
side of the wall for holding vases,
hanging baskets and flower boxes.
An old-fashioned chimney extends
on the outside wall and gives the ex

that when the house is completed it

there will probably be a scarcity of

Between 1S95 and 1916 of the 30,000

have communities in Arizona and Ore

scenes of mob violence through the
organized lawlessness of the I. W.

planned to carry on a campaign of
destruction in Missouri as soon as
the National Guard is withdrawn
from the state.
In the face of these disorders and
threats of violence the men of Mis

of the state must rally to the cai: of

THE CO.MMAMI OF DEATH
The Command of Death, the battal
ion of Russian women, has just been
engaged in battle in the Russian at
tack on the front at Krevo. The
bravery of these women immediately
gained for them the respect of the
Russian men soldiers. This great
world war has brought about many
strange things. When the war start
ed in August, 1914, few people in this
country thought of the possibility of
its lasting more than a few months.
and now not only Russian women, but
American women as well, are corns
what they can to aid in gaining vic
tory over the Central Powers.
Let us hope that women here in
the United States will not be forced
to the extremity of bearing arms as
the Russian women are doing. How
ever, we honor- the brave women of
the Command of Death, and, should
the occasion arise, American women
would probably do just as these
women are doing now.
"Realization Made Easj
"Realization Made Easy," by Kate
Atkinson Boehme, is a series of ten
lessons on how to keep mentally
healthy. The subject is treated from
the psychological point of view. The
idea that man and God are one, and
that man is the all-comprehensive be
ing are brought out in this book. Miss
Boehme believes in the philosophy of
Emerson, that man is a divine being.
Miss Boehme relates her own ex
periences' the realization of her de
sires, and describes how any human
being, by using her method of self
direction, can attain happiness. She
maintains that there is no need for
unhappiness, failure, poverty or dis
ease in the world.

R. II. Baker, professor of astrono

method of securing definite and accu

which are so remote that in the tele
scope they appear as mere points of
light. Professor Baker has under
taken the study of twelve of the
eclipsing binary stars, and has com
pleted four of them. These are de

the University. One of these was

that it takes their light a thousand

only six known stars of such a nature

These are the ones that Professor
Baker is studying. They are eclips

which revolve around their common
center of gravity. They appear sin

double, and are of varying brightness,
due to one being eclipsed by the otlier

Professor Baker has developed the
"extrafocal" method of photographing

connection with a spectroscopic study.
By means of this. Professor Baker has
