A committee for historical service
of the Missouri Council for Defense
has been appointed by Dean F. B.
Mumford, chairman of the council.
The committee Is composed of Prof.
Jonas Vlles, chairman; Dr. R. J.
Kerner, secretary, both of the Univer
sity; Prof. E. C. Griffith, William
Jewell College, and Prof C. H. Mc
Clure, AVarrensburg Normal School.
Missouri is one of the first states
to start a state organizaUon for
historical service. The plans that
will be adopted by the local committee
will be patterned after that used by
the National Board for Historical
Service. Whenever the Council for
National Defense needs any historical
information, or wishes a public speak
er it applies to this board. The na
tional hoard is In rnnpTi wlh nnd
knows the specialists in the different
lietas or nistoncai research. These
men are "drafted" Into service. In
this way correct information is given
to the public through public speaking
and newspapers. It is the purpose of
the state committee to do the- same. It
will be in touch with the leading
history teachers of the state who will
be "drafted" by the committee to do
any work that the Missouri Council
for Defense may ask of them.
As the causes of the war are
historical, the history teachers of the
United States are naturally interest
ed In it for a pedagogical reason as
well as a patriotic one it Is set forth
by the council. They believe that they
know the fundamental reasons for the
war and can give the correct causes to
the public and thus mold public
opinion. They believe that they can
educate the pullic opinion of the war
through lectures and pamphlets and
newspapers. They desire to supply
the public with historical information.
The state committee, in order to
stimulate interest among the public
school teachers of Missouri is pre
paring a prize contest to them. The
prize will be offered to the best esaajd
on "Why the Nnlted States Is at War."
An appropriation of $300 has been
made by the Missouri Council for De
fense to pay for the prizes. The
prizes will be offered in two groups.
(A) To high school teachers, the first
prize will be $75 and four prizes
ranging from $30 to $10 each. (B)
To elementary school teachers', '''the
first prize will be $75, second prize
$25 and five prizes of $10 each. The
essays are to be sent to Dr. R. J.
Kerner, secretary of.the Committee for
Historical Service of the Missouri
Council for Defense, Columbia. The
contest will close March 1, 1918. The
word limit is 3,000 words. The minor
mditions will be announced later.

IN A BANK
A modern banking business must be a human
institution. " Adding machines, typewriters,
devices for counting and checking out money
are necessary to efficient business-to eliminate
the human error. It's easy, however, for a
bank to fall into a mechanical existence and
become a mere automaton..
The bank that is closest to the life of the com
munity is the one that retains and cultivates
. its personality.
To cultivate personality is ever the aim of
