OUK 1'LAt'E IX THE FLAG
In the spuare of blue In the left
hand corner of the American flag are
forty-eight stars, one for each state
In the Union. Missouri like all states
has her star In a special position,
Our star is the twenty-fourth and is
the last one in the third row. The
twenty-third star belongs to Maine and
the twenty-fifth to Arkansas, our
neighbor on the south.
It took three years for Missouri to
get a place in the flag. Within the
next few months the state will begin
to celebrate the hundredth annivers
aries of various steps in the struggle
for statehood. The. State Historical
Society will celebrate at Its annual
meeting at Columbia this year the
presenting of the petition for state
hood to Congress on January S, 1S18.
In August 1S21 the state was Anally
admitted after a great deal'of debate
and by what had been done in history
as the Missouri Compromise. This
event will be celebrated throughout
the state and plans for the celcbraj
tions are already being formulated.
It is particularly appropriate that
. the state that is in the center of the
nation should be the middle number
in the order of the admittance to
t statehood. And what Is more signifi
cant is that she has outstripped in the
way of progress many of the states
which occupy higher places in the

ent. WAINSAYIXGS CERTIFICATES
Pennies as well as dollars are
going to win this war. The war sav
ings certificate plan just announced
by the Treasury Department is im
portant to students, clerks, workmen,
children to anyone, in fact, who has
felt unable to Invest in Liberty Bonds.
No safer investment could possibly
be made than in these certificates
which have the entire wealth and
security of the United States behind
them. Amounts as small as twenty
five cents at a time may be applied on
a war certificate through the purchase
of Thrift Stamps at postofflces, banks
or trust companies, at most railway
stations, stores and factories and at
many other public places where ac
credited persons will act as authorized
selling agents. No person may pur
chase at one time more tlfan $100
worth of the certificates or hold at one
time more than $1,000 worth. The
certificates are exempt from taxation,
although bearing equal to four per
cent interest and for this reason
should appeal strongly, particularly
to the investor of small amounts.
The sale? campaign will begin De
cember 3. During December 1917 and
January 1918 war saving stamps will
be sold for $4.12 each. At the begin
ning of each of the succeeding months
of 1918 starting February 1 the cost
of a stamp will increase one cent per
month. All war savings stamps is
sued during 191S will mature on Jan
uary 1, 1923, when they will be re
deemed at $5 each.
The difference between the purchase
price paid at any time during 1918
and $5 represents the interest the
government will pay the holder. There
Is no get-rich-qulck Wallingford
clause involved in the plan. It Is a
good, safe, patriotic and profitable in
vestment. With the- first war-savings stamp
bought the purchaser will obtain
without expense a war-savings certifi-
cate containing spaces for twenty such
stamps. If the twenty spaces are
filled during December, 1917, or Jan
uary, 1918, the cost to the purchaser
will have been $4.12 for each stamp or
$S2.40 for the filled certificate and on
January 1, 1923, the government will
redeem the certificate at $100, giving
the holder a net profit of $17.60 for
the use of his money.
Thrift Stamps costing twenty-five
cents each are from time to time, as
purchased, to be affixed to Thrift
Cards, which will be supplied without
cost. Thrift Stamps will not bear in
terest but a Thrift Card when filled
at a cost of $4 may be exchanged for
a War Savings Stamp bearing inter
est at four per cent compounded
quarterly merely by turning the card
into the postoffice, bank or other
sales agency and paying the differ
ence between $4 and the current price
of a War Savings Stamp.
In the war savings certificates every
citizen, no natter how small may be
his income, is given an opportunity to
take an active part in the winning of
the war as well as make for himself
an investment which will create
thrifty habits and net him commend
able returns. Money derived from
war savings investments will be used
to meet the expenses of the war. The
greater part of the funds will "be ex
pended within the borders of the

tVRITE OF Y. 31. C. A. WAR WORK
Soldiers From. Here Tell of the Bene
fits at Camp.
"I have had to wait an hour for a
place to write a letter. It was jfrorth
It. though, for it seemed a more ap
propriate place to get Into the writing
attitude than the crowded tent, with a
single candle and the trunk or bed to
write upon." "
That is the statement concerning the
army Y. M. C. A. Building of Berry
Hulen, a graduate of the University,
in a letter to Dean G. D. Edwards of
the Bible College. He is a. son of A.
C. Hulen of Columbia and is stationed
at Fort Sill, Okla. Another letter that
Dean Edwards has received is from
Sergeant Stanley Andrews, a student
of the University, at Camp Funston.
He also writes of the Y. M. C. A. and
its work. Both men are delighted
with the fact that they have paper,
pen and ink to write letters.
Concerning the work done at Fort
Sill, Mr. Hulen writes: "There are
six Y. M. C. A. buildings here, large
barn-like structures, measuring sixty
by one hundred feet The main feature
is the supplying of writing space and
stationery, for which the demand Is
He remarks that the men at the Fort
are quite different from a college
"Spontaneity is the mall resource of
the Y. M. C. A.," he says. "The
director at Nevada told the men, We
want to know what you want and give
It to you.' If the men want to play
games the Y. M. C. A. furnishes them
the necessary apparatus; If they want
music there are phonographs anu
pianos at the buildings. Entertainers
are brought to the camp and also
lantern slides. A small collection of
books is on hand and pretty well read.
A few,, too few, newspapers are on
At Camp Funston there are twelve
Y. M. C. A. buildings, writes Mr.
Andrews. Each one has an auditorium
and reading room. There are enough
tables to permit 125 to write at one
time: $125 worth of paper is used
dally and 60.000 letters are sent out
from the Y. M. C. A. alone every day.
"As a social agent it helps to make
the routine of the army lighter. It
gives us a place to spend our leisure
moments. At the Y. M. C. A. one may
write If he Is so Inclined, he may go
to the reading room where dallies, all
leading magazines or all kinds of good
books are to be found; or he may play,

play chess. Five evenings each week
are given over to entertainment, which
consists of movies, professional enter
tainers from lyceum leagues, theatri
