30 IN FACULTY I) KILL SQUAD
Practice Hours Clianpcd to 4 O'clock
Mondays nntl Fridays.
Beginning this week, the University
faculty driH squad will meet at 4
o'clock on Monday and Friday after
noons. The time has been changed
from Tuesday and Thursday.
About thirty members of the teach
ing and administrative staff have
joined the squad, which will continue
to drill twice a week utjder the per
sonal direction of Captain Wallace
Craigie, commandant of cadets. For
lefficient work, say thos& Interested in
the squad, at least thirty-two men,
will be required. It is hoped that the
number will run up to sixty. Drill
is held on the quadrangle and lasts
from 4 to 5 o'clock.
At present the squad is going
through elementary practice, without
rifles. Arms will be issued later and
targe practice will be a feature of the
Members of the squad have entered
into the work with serious enthusiasm.
The instruction is made possible by
the National Defense Act of June 3,
1916. which provides that where a unit
of the reserve officers' training corps
has been established at any University
instruction similiar to that in the re
serve officers' training camps may be
given to the members of the faculty.
The Government provides the in
struction, but assumes no liability for
placing men In commissions. How
ever, "they may qualify for appoint
ments as reserve corps officers by
complying with the law and regula
tions provided for the officers' reserve
The committee which 'has been or
ganizing the squad calls attention to
this advantage, and points out further,
in a circular letter to the faculty:
"There is. of course, the additional
advantage of exercise in the open air.
Some may take the work for that rea
son alone. Last, but not least, in pro
moting the spirit which maintains the
company, we ar oin? what little we
can toward creating the right atti
tude to win this war."

Optimistic Report Issued by the State
Board of Agriculture.
At the end of the -growing season
the agricultural situation is found to
be the best of the year, showing im
provement in corn, enlarged acreage
of wheat planting, and increased sup
plies of both food and forage to help
win the war, according to me um
cial crop report issued Saturday by
the Missouri State Board of Agricul
ture. Corn presents a final preliminary
average of 3G bushels per acre, or 7,
900,000 acres with 2S4.000.000 bush
els. Conditions, measured by 529 official
crop reporters sending in statistics, in
dicate that more wheat Is sown and
being sown in the cornfields than ev
er before in the history of this state.
The acreage of wheat being planted
increases, although dry weather,
scarcity of farm labor, and high
prices of seed wheat and day wages,
tend to delay and hold down the total
in some sections.

Students in Christian College will
help sew at the Red Cross head

There's nothing hard to understand about
a United States government bond. There's
nothing mysterious or complicated. And all
these Liberty Bonds that hundreds of
thousands of people all over America are
buying now are si.nply United States Gov
ernment Bonds to which the Government has
given the name "Liberty Loan." Below are
given the important points concerning the
U. S. Government Bonds so that everyone
may clearly and plainly understand just what
The promise of the U. S. Government
A U. S. Government Bond is an official
promise and agreement by the United States
of America to pay back to you the
money which you have paid for your Bond,
and also to pay you interest on that money
as long as you keep the bond- In the case
of this present issue of U. S. Government
Liberty bonds the rate of interest is 32
The question of safety Ever since the
United States Government was first estab
lished. United States Government Bonds
have been considered by business men,
bankers and investors of every sort as the
safest form of investment in the world.
There is no possible chance of loss, for
every bond is guaranteed by the United
States of America. Every bond is guaran
teed by all the wealth, all the land and all
the money in the whole United States.
The prof 'ts -These U. S. Liberty Bonds
will pay you interest at the rate of 4
year, which is Vz more th
lan you get
postal savings. And besides that they are

free from all taxation, so that in reality your
interest of 4 is better than 5 on an
investment on which you have to pay taxes.
Moreover, if the Government should issue a
new series of bonds later, on which a higher
rate of interest would be paid, then you
can exchange the bonds you purchase now
lor bonds of the new series and get the big
ger rate of interest
Increase in value U. S. Government
Bonds have always increased in value
soon after being issued, because of the
enormous demand by investors, bankers and
financiers wbo want to invest their money
where it will be absolutely safe. The SI 00
bonds the Government issued at the time of
the Spanish-American war sold a short time
later for $1 1 1. In other words these pec

terest besides. It can reasonably be
pected that this present issue of
Bonds will also increase in value.
You can borrow money on them If you
should need money at any time, you can take
your Liberty Bonds to any bank and borrow
money on them. Bankers consider U. S.
Bonds the best possible security you can
give, and are glad to loan money on them.
Tou can sell themJ. S. Government
Bonds can always be turned into cash if any
emergency should arise in which you should
need money quickly. You can sell them at
any time, for they are considered as good as
gold itself. You will never be "broke"' if
you own a U. S. Government Liberty Bond.
And your money is not tied up where you
can't get at it.
