Let's speak of it as the Tavern.
Of course in formal statement it is
the Daniel Boone Tavern but the
Daniel Boone Tavern is rather too big
a mouthful for ordinary every day
speech. It should be shortened to
The Tavern is comprehensively
descriptive in a word. It suggests a
community possession, as the struc
ture is. It connotes comfort and
convenience, ease and courtesy, grace
and a grateful atmosphere all of
which arc to be abiding attributes of
the hostelry. It hints at good fellow
ship and Intimates hospitality for
a proper though dignified considera
tion characteristics of this new ad
dition to the gems of Columbia's
So let's call it The Tavern in the
intimacy of friendly reference, not
"the new hotel," which smackc of
the commonplace, saving the longer,
more formal phrase carrying the
name of the pioneer for special oc
casion requiring official designation.

BINGHAM PICTURE OF BOONE
HANGS IN TAVERN LOBBY
Ishop of Rheims, who has remained would join to found such a perpetual

A Missouri pioneer painted by a
Missouri artist in a hotel which, of" all
the hotels in the state of Missouri, is
perhaps the most typically a Missouri
hostelry! That is the picture of Dan
iel Boone, painted by George Caleb
Bingham, one of the famous artists
of the United States, himself a Co
lumbian. The picture was secured
for the new Daniel Boone Tavern by
E. W. Stephens,'"and was put in place
in the main lobby of the new hotel
The Bingham picture is one of the
two or three paintings of the old
pioneer that are considered really
true likenesses. The picture of Boone
and his dog, shown elsewhere in this
issue, is considered the other au
thentic picture. The Bingham picture
now hanging in the lobby of the tav
ern is entitled "Daniel Boone CominE
Through the Cumberland Gap." It
represents the emigration of the
famous Daniel Boone with his family
from North Carolina to Kentucky.
The picture is described in Miss Fern
Helen Rusk's book on George Caleb
Bingham as follows:
"The scene of the picture is laid In
a mountain gap, as the subject sug
gests, and the dramatic, grandiose
treatment of the landscape, as the
present state of the painting shows,
it suggests that the artist must have
been Influenced by the early Hudson
River landscape school. Boone, a
middle-aged man. In picturesque cos
tume of moccasins and homespun
clothes, heads the -procession, looking
intently to the front, grasping with
his left hand the butt of his rifle,
which rests upon his shoulder, and
with his right hand guiding his horse,
on which his weary wife sits.
"In June, 1853, Bingham was exhib
iting this picture in St. Louis. He
proposed to dispose of it at a raffle.
Three hundred shares were to be sold
at two dollars each, as the work was
valued at $600. It is not said just what
came of the raffle, but it is known that
the picture was later sent to Paris.
It is difficult to trace signs of re
painting in the darker parts, but in
the lighter parts, the sky particularly,
it is easy to trace forms of branches
that have been painted out."
PRISONERS TO NETHERLANDS
MAGAZINE FOR SAMMIES
More persons should take advantage
of the offer of the United States postal
department in aiding the contributions
of magazines and papers to the sol
diers. The war department declares that
American periodicals will greatly
strengthen the morals of the armies in
the field. To receive news from home
beside that contained in letters breaks
the foreign atmosphere which' sur
rounds them and makes them realize
more than ever that they are fighting
for their own homes and country.
The Sammies can not read the
French papers and .their only means
of Informing themselves on world
events is by hear-say. Cut off from
news they seem to be isolated from
civilization and the country for which
they fight. Newspapers and magazines
are the connecting link and It is the
duty of all to drop old periodicals
Into the mailbox for the boys in
These are tokens that America
thinks hourly of the boys across the
water who are fighting for us. They
bridge the leagues of water and reach
into the heart of France with the
message that the folks at home are
behind their fighters. The magazines
mean more than real reading matter.
They are an actual aid in the fight
and a weapon against the enemy, in
stilling new courage and determina
tion in the hearts of the soldiers.

RHEIMS' DESTINY A QUESTION
out the bombardment, is firmly deter
mined that Rheims shall always have
its temple. "We shall repair the
cathedral," he has said. "It must be
so. We hare casts of its statues and
colored photographs of its glass. Our
architect, at the risk of his life, is
working under the damaged arches
to save what can be saved.
"The day will come when the doors
will again be opened for religious
services, for I hold fast to one thing
above all, that the cathedral where
tiie first Christian king of France was
christened shall remain the first
church of France.
"I protest with all my energy, and
I shall never cease protesting, against
any project that seeks to make
Rheims Cathedral into some kind of
a museum or necropolis. Those who
have such ideas do not consider that
Rheims is for the church, for France
and for the whole world. All such
proposals are impossible.
"With one suggestion only that has
been made can I associate myself
with all my heart. Let there be,
every year, a solemn, celebration in
the cathedral which has suffered so
from German rage, in memory of
those who have died for the safety of
the country and the freedom of the
world. .The whole Catholic world

Archbishop Says Famous Cathedral
Must Be Restored.
(Correspondence of the Associated Tress)
PARIS, Sept 7. Suggestions are
being publicly advanced as to the
destiny of Rheims Cathedral. Discus
sion centers on whether it should be
restored as a cathedral, transformed
into some sort of. a national memo
morial dedicated to those who hae
lost their lives in the war, orleft as
a monument to Teutonic barbarism, r
The question cannot be definitely de

TEACHERS IN NEW POSITIONS
YALUE OF WALKING
Adam and Eve walked. Neverthe
less, if their descendants choose to
abandon walking, that is their
privilege. If they choose to unlearn
those things which are learned only
by walking, that Is their penalty.
Those who spin by In automobiles
and carriages, those who whiz by on
motorcycles, or those who ride by on
horses discover that all values of life
and landscape change the lns:ant
they plant their feet on Mother Earth.
Those who pass each other on foot
realize that each is ,a human being
with a personality. They realize that
there is a difference between Wallace
and Frank. But to those who pass a
la vehicle, all Wallaces and Franks
are the same merely human obstacles
to steer clear of.
Those who do not walk, fail to ap
preciate trie miracle of modern rapid
transit, for it Is the walker alone who
is in a position to know the physical
contest with distance.
The walker sees details the rider
sees only mass. The rider sees a
glaring yellow field which resembles
a carpet, whereas the walker sees not
from UnlTersItr Elementary
School Get Good "Calls."
How the University Elementary
School supplies schools of the United
States with teachers is shown by the
fact that this year three members of
the faculty of the Columbia school
will take higher positions on the
teaching staffs of New York, Illinois
ana Missouri Institutions. Miss Ma
tilda Dreifus, teacher of the fifth and
sixth grades in the Columbia school
last year, leaves soon to take a place
on the faculty of the Ethical Culture
School of New York City. Miss Drei
fus accepted the New York position at
an Initial salary of $1,800. Miss Dor
othy Self, who has been at the Uni
versity school for the last two yaars,
will go to the Warrensburg Normal
School at a salary of $1,500, while
Miss Mary Hogan received an appoint
ment in the schools of North Chicago
with a substantial increase in salary.
All of these teachers were "discov
ered" through their work in the Ele
mentary School during the last year.
"The teaching force at the Ele
mentary School," said Dr. J. L.
Meriam, superintendent of the Ele
mentary School, today, "will not be
weakened by the loss of these three
teachers, as we have alreaey engaged
three more who are competent to
handle the work which they will take
Mrs. J. K. Fyfer, formerly principal
of the Lee School, is now principal of
the Elementary School, and will teach
this year grades three and four. Miss
Katherine Hankins and Mrs. Basil
Gauntlett are the other two new
teachers. They will share the work
in grades five, six and seven. Miss
Hankins has taught in Carrollton and
Kansas City. She is a graduate of
the University and last year took her
A.M. degree. She was teaching super
visor of Latin in the University H'gh
School. Mrs. Gauntlett is well
known in Columbia. She graduated
in 1913 and has taught in both the
Elementary and High schools.
