THE SL'IIUT OF B00XE
The decision of the bankers of
Boone County to subscribe 4 1-2 per
cent of their resources for purchasing
Liberty Bonds is an example of the
spirit cf patriotism that must thrill
the entire country if the United States
is to do its part in winning the World
War. By this action, our financiers
have proved that conscription of
wealth will not be necessary, so far as
they are concerned.
Boone County takes its name from
(Daniel Boone. If this early patriot,
the famous pioneer and trailmaker,
were here today, would he have
hesitated in doing all in his power to
aid his beloved country against the
common enemy? True, Boone was
poor In the world's goods, but con
scription of men would neer have
been necessary If the nation had been
made of such stuff as he.
How easily one can picture this
fearless ploiieer spreading the spirit
of patriotism among his fellow
frontiersmen, leading a body of minute
. men up to the courthouse and volun
teering their services until the safety
of democracy and the rights of small
nations should be assured for time
eternal. No advertising campaign
would have been necessary to call
those men to colors; and whateVer
wealth may have been their's would
have as cheerfully and readily been
placed at the service of their coun
try. Boone County's financiers have
proved that the spirit of Daniel
Boone has lived down through the
generations. But the citizens of the
county have yet their bit to do. The
$250,000 worth of bonds that have been
subscribed for should all be pur
chased before the second Liberty Loan
campaign closes October 27. He who
can purchase a Liberty Bond, and fails
to do so is lacking that spirit that led
Daniel Boone and his fellow patriots
to make this country the home of
liberty, industry and thrift.

COLUMBIA CHURCHES INVITE YOU
Columbia goes to church and she al
so invites her visitors, transient and
students', to go with her.
All of Columbia's many churches
are filled every Sunday and special
appeals are made to students and
others who "are going to be here some
time to become -members of a Co
lumbia church by letter or on pro
fession of faith.
To become truly interested in
church work and to feel that one has
a church-home, one must be a mem
ber of tho church he regularly at
tends. Columbia's churches realize
that often the "home-town" church of
students and other transients dislike
to send the church-letters and there
by lose members. But, as one pastor
has pointed ont, the "home-town"
church has already lost a member
when that member leaves the home
town. Carrying the name of absent
members on a church-roll does not
make the person any less absent.
If a person leaves his church-home
and stays in another town a few
years without relating himself to the
church he attends he will gradually
lose interest in the church. In asking-
short-time residents to become
members of churches here, Columbia
feels that she is helping those people
to be better church-workers.
If the 'home-town' wishes to keep
such names on its church rolls because
the persons may come back to the
home-town to live, the statistics of
University students returning to live
in their original homes will prove that
such practice is not warranted.
Statistics show that only twenty per
cent of University students return
home after leaving Columbia. It isl
