Dear that the people are slowly but
surely awakening to the fact that the
Weather Bureau's theory of fore
casting the weather changes, which is
simple In principle, depending upon
well-recognized physical deductions
and analogical conclusions, is the
right one. It is the only scientific
method practiced, or recognized, by
scientific bureaus or societies of the
The following Is from the Joplin
Globe, which shows that the so-called
long range weather fakir must ac
cept the inevitable:
"Although it used to seem as if
the Rev. Irl It- Hicks must have been
making a good thing out of It. the
business of weather predicting doesn't
appear to be particularly remunera
tive unless you get a salary from
Uncle Sam. Such a conclusion, at
least, appears Justified after reading
the following wan appeal from an
'I see by my goosebone cold weath
er and snow. I have seen lately great
sun spots on the face of old Sol.
When the sun is covered with spots it
brings storms and cold weather. The
farmers around the Buffalo will see an
old-fashioned January. The sun Is
92,000,000 miles from our earth. It is
a great lake of fire. I believe it is
Billy Sunday's hell, where the ungodly
will be cast into. No man knows where
hell is, up or down. I believe hell is
the grave and the lake of fire is the
sun where the wicked will be cast in
to after they are Judged. I don't see
why the people can't give me a little
money as well as William Ashley Sun
day. Their weather prophet has not
received a cent up to date. This Is
not a Christian spirit. I am always
among you here, while Billy Sunday
has come and gone, fie got $8,600,
and I get nothing for forecasting the
weather.' John C. Busby, Weather

situation is to be made funny, there
will surely follow disregard for and
lack of trust In the statements and
pleadings of the food administration.
Personally, I cannot see where any
instruction whatever can come from
a funny, extremely exaggerated and
ridiculous moving picture cartoon. A
system of actually showing the people
of the country how food can be pre
served, saved and properly utilized
would be far more effective and more
acceptable to a serious-minded person.
A big, fat cook comes into the din
ing room, where there is seated a
skinny little man. He is her sweet
heart She gives him a large roast, a
lot of bread, a turkey, and he devours
them all as fast as she carries them
in. Some ridiculous soldiers come in,
led by Uncle Sam, and she deals them
out a small pork chop on a platter
which covers the whole table. The
garbage man is outside. Uncle Sam
grabs a room upon which Is written
"Hoover" and scoots the cook and her
hungry friend out into the garbage

As to the Savitar.
Editor the MIssourian: Is the Sav
itar to be masked under the name of
a "war book" this year, or has it
changed its character and become a
real war book? In the past it has
been an annual, a look filled with
pictures and names ai.d a few special
articles, sold at a price to cover ex
penses of publication, and now It is
to be sold under the name of a War
Book, a book to help the Great Cause.
There are schools giving up their
annuals that the money may go di
rectly to further the war; and this
annual of ours, if we may Judgefrom
the title of "war book," is to help our
"Sammies," too. If it is, the title is
good; if It is not, the title is wrong.
Are we to have war tacked to every
thing that bears little or no relation
to war? Are we to allow the slogan,
"Help your war book," to be attached
to the Savitar? L.
The 1918 SaTitar as a "War Book."
Editor the MIssourian: In response
to an inquiry in the Evening Mis
sourlan, I wish to answer a letter
sent to that paper recently regard
ing the use of the expression "war
book" in connection with the 1918
Savitar. I regret very much that any
one has received the Impression that
the 1918 Savitar Board Is using the
"war" idea to help sell Savitars.
Everyone knows that the enrollment
at the University has been affected to
a great extent by the war, and, for
this reason, the Savitar must receive
the support of the students, as it
neter has before, if it is to be a suc
cessful publication. For that reason
the Savitar Board called it a "War
Book" to impress on the minds of the
students here the need for support of
a student annual, which is being is
sued at this time.
I am sure students who know the
members of the 191S Savitar Board
will refuse to believe that any mem
ber of the board had the slightest idea
of selling one copy of the Savitar un
der false pretenses. Perhaps the use
of the expression "war book" was un
fortunate, and, to those who have
gained the wrong impression regard
ing it. the 191S Savitar Board ex
presses its regret. Nevertheless, with
the University short 500 students, and
the majority of those 500 the very
ones who always supported the Savi
tar, there is need for closest co-operation
of the student body with the 1918
Savitar staff. It was this co-operation
we were calling for when we allowed
the expression "war book" to be
printed on the Savitar tags.

Haste in Bread Baking.
Editor the MIssourian: An "author
ity" on conservation, quoted by the
-MIssourian, says that an average of
13 ounces of dough is wasted on
eery uaKing day m tne nome. inis
is highly misleading. With the mod
ern bread-mixer which is found in
many homes, there is not an ounce of
waste. B. B.

Editor the MIssourian: With the
greatest respect for the workers who
are ghlng their time to aiding the
Hooer plan of preserving the food
supply, it seems to me that great
misunderstanding is being displayed
by those who present to the public
funny or ridiculous cartoons on food
waste, such as was shown at a Co
lumbia theater last week.
The situation is not a funny one,
and it cannot be properly met by pre
senting humorous pictures. If the
