TENTH YEAR '
COLUMBIA, MISSOURI, FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 26, 1917.
IS SI 1 2.000 BEHND
Unless Big Final Drive Is
Made, Local District Will
Be Far Behind Neighbor
WITH BIG RALLY
Parade and Speeches on
Broadway Before Tiger
Drake Football Game To
Final Liberty Loan Drive!
The Liberty Loan Campaign closes
Boone County is behind ite quota
Columbia's final opportunity to sub
scribe comes at the mass meeting on
Broadway at 1:30 o'clock tomorrow
Before the mass meeting there will
be a big parade of Liberty Lotfn buy
ers. It will start from the University
campus at 1 o'clock;
With less than twenty-four hours
remaining in which Boone County can
put Itself in the list of districts which
have subscribed in full their quota to
the Liberty Loan fund, there is lack
ing $112,000 of the amount expected.
It was estimated by E. Sydney Steph
ens, chairman of the publicity com
mittee, this morning that Boone
County had subscribed not more than
$423,000 to the loan fund. The amount
expected, $545,000, is still lacking by
$112,000. While Boone County hesi
tates about contributing its full
share to the second loan, Audrain,
Cole, Cooper and Callaway counties
are within easy reach of their goals,
Cooper and Audrain both having
oversubscribed their quotas.
Columbia's citizens, who are In
charge of the Boone County campaign,
determined that this district shall not
be left behind itsTieighborff In the na
tion's great, camp'aign, will work right
up until the last minute tomorrow aft
ernoon to reach the $545,000 mark.
The biggest rally of the campaign
will be held on Broadway, between
Eighth and Ninth streets, at 1:30
o'clock tomorrow afternoon. It Will
be preceded by a parade, similar to
those which have been held in all of
the larger cities of the state. The
route of the parade will start at the
llnhersitv cairiDUS on Eighth street
and from that point the marchers will
proceed north to the business district
In the parade will be the University
Cadet Corps, the University of Mis
souri and Drake bands, the Boy Scouts
of Columbia, the members of the com
mittee and every man or woman who
wears a button showing that they
have bought Liberty Bonds. The
' committee is particularly anxious to
bave every Liberty Loan buyer in the
Broadway Closed for Meeting.
Broadway will be closed during the
talks which will precede the final
Liberty Loan drive of Columbia. The
meeting will start promptly at 1:30
o'clock in plenty of time for those
who attend to get to the Missouri
Drake football game. Before the
.meeting the Missouri and Drake bands
will play. The sp'eakers at the final
rally will be Dean Isldor Loeb, H. A.
Collier, E. W. Stephens, E. C. Ander
son and George Starrett
"We must make this last mass meet
ing in Boone County's drive a mam
moth rally." said Mr. Stephens, a
member of the committee, this after
noon. ','Boone County has never been
found wanting in national emergen
cies up to this time. It is our duty
now to see that every Columbian gets
out and helps pack Broadway from
curb to curb, so that every citizen of
the town may realize Just what this
great Liberty Loan campaign means
to every one of us."
Elks Subscribe $6,000.
The Elks' Lodge last night decided
to make $500 the subscription of the
lodge to the Liberty Loan fund. After
the meeting individual members of
the lodge agreed to purchase $6,000
worth of bonds, and said it was likely
this amount would be increased to
$10,000. Other contributions by or
ganizations: Sigma Nu fraternity, $200.
Y. W. C. A., $150.
Senior Class, Columbia High School,
S. G. A. (additional), $200.
Home Economics Club, $50.

pers. ST. LOUIS FOOD WORKER HERE
Mrs, Eugene Senseny In Columbia Ar
ranging for Special Schools.
Mrs. Eugene T. Senseny of St.
Louis, chairman tit the "educational
committee of the St Louis Council of
Defense, was In Columbia today ar
ranging for what will be called a Nor
mal School of Instruction for St.
Louis. The school will be taught by
members of the home economics staff
of the Agricultural Extension Service.
The work is under the Immediate
direction of Miss Luclle Bell, who rep
resents co-operatively the United
States Department of Agriculture, the
College of Agriculture and the city
of St. Louis in the interest of food
conservation. The plan of the school
is to select a number of St. Louis
women and divide them into groups.
Each group will be given training in
two subjects, such as corn meal
dishes, war breads, fish, meat substi
tutes, fats, sugars and Christmas can
dies When the training is completed and
an examination has been passed, eacb
woman will give one lecture a week,
alternating her subject each week.
The present plan provides for eight
centers where these lectures and
demonstrations will be given. The
subjects and schedules will be so ar
ranged that a different lecture wiU
be given at all the centers on the
s,ame day. These lectures are open to
the public. By means of these dem
onstrations, all the women of St
Louis may be taught food conserva
tion. The same kind of schools of In
struction will be conducted in Kan
sas City and St Joseph as soon as
they can be arranged. Miss Ida
Shilling, who has a position in Kansas
City similar to the one which Miss
Bell has in St Louis, is making plans
for the school there. St. Joseph has
no extension representative in home
economics, but o'ne will be placed
there in a few weeks. Students in
these schools willv probably receive
credit in the University.
