Columbia should not fall to take ad
vantage of the opportunity to secure
the new factory of the Marx-Haas
Clothing Company. According to re
ports, a guaranty of sufficient supply
of labor, especially woman labor, and
the right kind of a building are the
only requirements sought by the com
pany to insure a factory here.
A census of the city with the view
of listing all available labor is under
way. But those Columbians, especial
ly the women, who are idle and need
work should not wait for the com
mittee of find them. They should re
port to the Commercial Club at once.
not only because they are thus avail
ing themselves of a chance to secure
steady employment but also because
they will thus help bring to Columbia
another financial enterprise.
With the Hamilton-Brown Shoe
Company operating a factory here,
Columbia should not be satisfied until
every possible effort, has been made to
add to this beginning of an industrial
center. Opportunities to secure branch
factories are continually opening up,
and it is'the duty of each citizen to do
his part to Increase the business
capacity of Columbia.
Opportunity is knocking. It de
pends on the quickness with which the
citizens of Columbia respond to the
requirements set down by the Marx
Haas Clothing Company whether the
factory will be brought here or will
be built in some other Missouri city.
Let us act quickly.
It seems that another common Il
lusion must be shattered by Indian
summer, which apparently has noth
ing at all to do with Indians! The
term was not given to a certain season
in the autumn by them, and apparent
ly they never even heard of it!
The term came into existence in the
United States first in the Middle At
lantic states in 1794. Nobody knows
who originated it. Indian summer
lasts one or two weeks, and it may re
cur two or three times in a year. It
comes in November or October usually
and may come in December.
During Indian summer the leaves
dry nd drop away, the sky is cloud
less and the air calm and light. Usual
ly there is a slight haze. Part of the
haze comes from the forest fires which
occur at this time on account of the
dryness of the air.
Almost every country has its Indian
summer. The term was introduced into
England from America but there the
period is called Saint Martin's sum
mer. Germany calls Is Old Woman's
Signing the food pledge implies the
observance of a definite affirmative
program, not prohibition from this
thing and that thing like so many
other pledges. It means one wheatless
meal a day, a meatless meal a week,
the use of less sugar and the eating of
a greater variety of food.
Nothing is more Indicative of wom
an's progress than the fact that not
one of them is knitting a doily.
THE SILENT FIGHT
In speaking of battles we talk of
the bravery of the mass, of the
spectacular: in speaking of educa
tional institutions we talk of learned
professors, their educational triumphs,
or of the success of certain students
or a certain athletic organization; in
speaking of business we talk of suc
cessful and powerful men or organiza
tions; the fight of the masses, the
work of the large groups or the un
usual success 'of the Individual at
tract attention and receive the praise
The battle of the individual has
small place in history; the world at
large cannot stop to consider the in
dividual. A part or the personal fight
is so personal and so close one's own-
self that the world would be shut out
even if the world would stop and con
sider. The soldier in camp may be fighting
a regiment of trouble within his
breast; his own fight may require
more courage than is required of him
in the battle with men and guns. The
test of the man, his real worth, is his
ability to successfully wage that
silent fight, the personal conflict.
The student handicapped by lack
of funds, health or ability may be
making a stronger fight than are the
professors and students who are suc
cessful in a way recognized by the
world. It require a finer and more
durable quality of courage to work
far into the night, to Hooverize not
only on "eats" but also on pleasures,
to work while others play and still
smile than It does to make a speech
asking your friends to join in on some
enterprise when part of the crowd
intended doing so before you asked
and all the crowd Is with you.
The man with a small business may
be, and probably is, putting us a
harder and better fight than is the
head of a large corporation but hij
fight is not spectuclar, it is the silent
fight which is felt all the more be
cause it is silent.
The mother who yesterday smiled
when she gave un her son at the
country's call may not be smiling to
day. She is making the silent fight.
"The outer oft times does not the
inner show" and while the world
thinks we, have no trouble, the silent
fight goes on and .we have the same
trust for a final reward that has
Emily Dickinson who wrote:
"To fight aloud is very brave.
But galianter I know
Who charge within the bosom
The cavalry of woe.
Wfao win, and nations do not see.
Who fall, and none observe,
Whose dying eyes no country
Regards with patriot's love. ,
We trust, in plumed procession.
For such the angels go
Hank after rank, with even feet.
And uniforms of snow."
