Some Reasons for Bible Study
1. To better understand the genius and spirit of modern institutions
and conditions. Our life is saturated with the influence of bib
2. To better appreciate current literature. English literature i3 per
meated with scriptural allusions. Many oft the finest passages
turn on their use of biblical material.
3. To acquire grace ami strength In public speech and in writing.
McCarthy, Huskin, Cardinal Newman, and a host of others have
acknowledged their indebtedness to our English Bible for their
4. To inspire and help toward the attainment of one's best. For
improvement in character, and for giving quality to one's every
capacity nothing can surpass an adequate study of the Bible. It
tones up the whole life.
University students can take one or more courses in the Bible
College of Missouri, and have them credited towards their university
degrees. There are no charges of any kind.

PEACE 11 LONG IY
OFF, SAYS OFFICER
Major Smoke Discusses War
After a Visit to the Na
"MEANS LONG FIGHT"
Columbia Man Is Stationed
at Fort Russell In
As soon as the American people
realize the seriousness and the macni-
tude of the European conflict and the
sooner they suppress those agencies,
some of which are fostered by Ger
many and are hindering the Gov
ernment in its work, then and not
until then, can peace be looked for
ward to, Major S. A. Smoke, United
States Army, toTd a Missourian re
porter yesterday. Captain Smoke left
yesterday afternoon for Fort Russell,
Wyo., where he was commanding of
ficer until last July.
"The lack of interest persons show
in the war is surprising," Major Smoke
said. "I was talking to several in
telligent men last night and one of
them actually believed that the war
would be over in the spring."
"This is absurd. While I cannot
predict, nor can any oife else predict,
when the war will be over, I can say
this much. The contracts for the
building of the drydock3 for the trans
ports which will take our troops over
sea are just now being let. The same
is true of the contracts for our air
plane engines. It will be two years
before these transports and aimlanes
can be built in any great number and
our troops trained. Perhaps a year
alter mat some of the wisest men in
Washington mav be able to cive some
idea how much the fighting will con
jreans Loup Fiplit, He Says.
"The men who I have talked to re
cently have asked me if I did not think
that something would turn tin and
peace would be declared. Something
has turned up, but not for peace and
we will have to fight and fight for a
long time, before peace can come,"
Major Smoke said.
"In Columbia and in Wyoming we
have not had any direct evidence of
the spirit of rebellion that Is showing
itself in some places. The I. W. W.
and other agencies are behind a creat
many of these moves and the people
of the country must not tolerate their
Major Smoke told of the work which
is being done at Fort Russell which
Derore the war was a cavalry post.
Now two regiments of the cavalrv are
being trained in field artillery and the
miantry is also being trained there.
Seen thousand men are now station
ed at this mobilization camn. Malor
Smoke returned from an eastern port
where he accompanied 2,000 Wjoming
national Guardsmen who have had
three months training at Fort Russell
ana wno will receive three months
more at the eastern port where more
than 50,000 men are encamped. These
men will be in France before the end
of the year.
The men of the northeast are en
listing .according to him, not so much
for patriotic reasons as for the lotc
of adventure. Some of the men had
not even seen a railroad. Few had
had any military training although
they were enlisted in National Guard
Have Enlarged Fort Hussoll.
Major Smoke explained that he had
to return to Fort Russell to Day off
the men. The monthlv nnvrnli fnr
that camp is now $148,000.
The Government has spent $80,000
since the declaration of war in enlarg
ing the Fort Russell camp. The men
are instructed in regular army tactics
and trench warfare has been added.
Major Smoke left Columbia in 1914
to take charge of the post He was on
the retired list and is still although in
active service He was nromoted to a
majorship January of this jear. He
has had charge of bujing all Govern
ment supplies for his Dost and esti
mates that he has distributed $10,000,-
000 worth of supplies for the Govern
ment in the last year and a half.
TAVEKX BALLROOM TO OPE.V
First Assembly Dance Will He Held
The new ballroom of the Daniel
Boone Tavern will be opened for the
first time Saturday night, when the
first assembly dance of the University
of Missouri is held there from 8
o'clock until 11 o'clock in the even
ing. Of all the different features of
the new hotel the ballroom has held
most interest for the average student
of the University of Missouri. Man
ager F. W. Leonard has received nu
merous requests for use of the big
room for banquets and dances, but has
not been ready until this week to
open the room to the public
The room is finished in Gothic oak,-
with leaded glass windows and a bal
cony in the north end of the room
for the orchestra. Outside is a big
assembly room with dressing rooms
for guests and a check room just in
side the elevator entrance.
The Quadrangle Orchestra, which is
directed by L. C. Cook, will furnish
music for the assemblies this year.
Saturday night's dance, it is expected,
will be one of the largest of the year,
due to the fact that there has been so
much interest in the new hotel ball
room and, too, because it is the end
of fraternity and sorority rush week.
F. W. Leonard, manager of the new
hotel, has announced that there will
be no change in price from that of
last year. Miss Eva Johnston, ad
viser of women, has agreed to allow
the hotel to serve lefreshments in the
main cafe of the hotel from 11 o'clock,
when the dance ends, until 12 o'clock,
midnight. Already many reservations
for tables have been made for after-the-dance
parties in the cafe.
The new cafe is another feature of
the hotel which has just been opened
to the public. It is finished in dark
oak, with hangings of gray, and its
wans are tinted pink and gray. Fur
niture in harmony with the finish of
the woodwork and rose lights on the
tables complete the cafe furnishings

3ICD THE ALLIES' WORSA EXE3IY
More Persistent Than The Germans,
aays unush Director,
By Associated Press
LONDON', Sept. 19. Major General
Frederick B. Maurice, director of
military operations at the war office,
who has just returned from one of his
frequent trips to the front In France,
wa sasked by the Associated Pres3
correspondent what phase of battle
front activity had on this occasion im
pressed him most.
"Always the same thing, the mud,"
he replied. "It is the most remov
able mud in the world. As an enemy
it is more persistent than the German
and more deadly than his artillery.
"O had a remarkable object lesson
of the power ofthe Flanders mud
during my week in the battle area. I
isited a hospital where thev hnd twn
of our men who had been rescued after
spending thirtyhours In the grip of a
Flanders mud-hole. She two men, ad
vancing across No-Man's land in the
semi-darkness, had stumbled into an
old shell-hole and found themselves
Inextricably in the clutches of the
thick mud at the bottom. When they
were found, they had been there for
thirty hours, .and had been drawn
waist-deep Into the clay.
"All sorts of expedients were tried
to extricate them, and it was finally
deemed necessary to fit a harness to
mem and pull them out with a team of
mules. Both men had their hips and
knees dislocated in the process. That
Is Flanders mud!"
