FORESTERS ARE NEEDED
TO HELP WIN THE WAR
The second forestry division, known
as the Twentieth Engineers (Forest),
is now being organized for service In
France. It will be composed of about
8,000 men. Prof. F. E. Dunlap of the
forestry department of the University
of Missouri Is state listing officer, and
it Is his duty to pass on the technical
Qualifications of the men. According
to Professor Dunlap, the number of
men who had been listed in Missouri
for the new regiment was 422 at the
end of last week. At the end of the
first week 59 men had been listed; the
second week, 96; the third, 106, and
the fourth, 161.
The first regiment of engineers to
go to France was the Tenth, which
sailed about the first week in Sep
tember. It was composed of about
1,600 men, four of whom were gradu
ates of the forestry department of the
University. They were C. A. Callo
way, F. G. Kraft, E. B. Hotze and C.
B. Fritschle. Professor Dunlap says
that it is the intention to organize
successive regiments, naming them
the Thirtieth, Fortieth, Fiftieth and
Sixtieth, and there is still hope for
men who are not able to get into the
To Facilitate Enrollment.
At the cantonments the drafted men
are assigned to different fields of
work and those who had woods ex
perience are put into the forestry
regiments. About 100 men have al
ready been transferred from the train
ing camps to the Twentieth Regiment.
Jt is the belief of Professor Dunlap
that if ever- man who has been
Irafted and has had woods experience
will apply direct to the listing office
at Columbia, matters will be greatly
facilitated. If the applicant's quali
fications are such as to allow him to
enter the training camp he will be
sent direct to Washington, D. C. The
training camp is northwest of that
city, "near the American University.
Some applications have been re
jected because the applicants have
not had regular woods experience, but
have been in selling or clerical posi
tions at the sawmills.
"Men who have had training In for
estry schools are In line for appoint
ment as non-commissioned officers in
the regular army," said. Professor
Dunlap. "The pay for privates and
non-commissioned officers In the for
estry regiment is the same as in the
regular army. Listing in the forestry
regiment is open to all citizens of the
United States, and to those who have
declared their intention of becoming
"In France, the men will get out
timbers, railroad ties, trench timbers
and all woods used for various under
takings behind the battle ranks. The
impression has gone around that these
men will start new forests in France,
but the aim at present is to beat the
Germans and not primarily to take
care of future generations."
Work of M. U. Department.
The general forestry administration
work at the University is about the
same at is has been for three or four
years, but it is just now talcing on a
war-time color; The department Is
handling the University forests, which
are situated in the Ozarks and consist
of about 50,000 acres. The bulk of the
land is in forest, but scattered
throughout the tract are small farms
ranging in size from a garden patch to
120 acres. These farms contribute to
the food supply of the country and the
farmers are being advised as to the
best means of raising war crops. Pro
fessor Dunlap says that the Ozark
farmers have been favored this year
with good seasons and have grown the
best crops they have had in ten years.
Each year the forestry department
takes men who have completed their
junior year to a camp in the Ozarks,
where they are given practical ex
perience in the handling of woods.
The students spend five weeks getting
woods experience and three weeks at
a sawmill. At the end of this time,
or during August, they usually get a
job at the sawmill for further ex
perience. Tnls experience is required

DATES FOR DEBATING TRIALS
POVERTY'S GRIP RELAXED
Charity Organization Society Gives
Relief to Stricken Family.
It happened last year in Columbia.
They were the two eldest daughters
of a family of nine children. Their
father made from $12 to $15 a week
when he had work. By helping him
these girls were able to keep the rest
of the children in school. Together
they made $6 a week.
As long as the father was in good
health and they worked, earning their
$6 a week, the family managed to eke
out a meager existence. The children
did not grumble, the two older girls
did not go to dances or any places
of amusement and the mother and
father occasionally deprived them
se'lves of an extra slice of bread. They
managed to get along.
But last winter the father grew
sick. The home was deprived of its
main support, but the two girls labor
ed arduously to keep the family's head
above water. The sickness grew
worse, the growing children needed
food and clothing and the $6 would not
cover the expenses.
When the Columbia Charity Organ
ization Society heard of the case, the
family was in a half-starved condi
tion. They were provided with cloth
ing. Occasionally they were given food
and the children were kept in school.
The man's sickness lasted through
out the winter. With the little help
of the organization and the $6 that the
two girls made the family was able to
live through the cold months. The
man is now well and contributing to
the support of his family.
Soldiers May HaTe SUssourlan for $ 3.
The members of the Missourian
board decided Wednesday night to
lower the yearly subscription rate for
the Missourian to $3 for the former
students and graduates who are now
in national service in this country or
abroad. The regular rate is $4.50 a
Missouri's chance for a victory over
Kansas on Thanksgiving Day was
given a severe setback last night when
Harry Viner, Varsity halfback and star
of the recent victor' over Washington,
was hurt in a light scrimmage prac
tice. His ankle was badly injured, and
it was necessary to carry him to the
gymnasium. Today he is able to walk
with the aid of a cane. . His chances
for being in his usual position against
Kansas are not very bright. If it be
comes possible for him to play his ab
sence from practice in the few days
preceding the game will seriously
hinder his playing.
But Viner's injury was not the only
one. pittman, who only recently
joined the squad, turned his ankle in
running to the gymnasium after
practice was over. The injury was
painful but It is thought that he will
be all right again in a few days.

"AII-Anierlean" Game Saturday.
Coach Schulte was a spectator at
the Kansas-Nebraska football game at
Lawrence Saturday. Going over on
the train he said that he would not
be surprised to see Kansas defeat
Nebraska, because it had the best
team that had worn the Red and Blue
in the last six years.
When asked yesterday about the
cnances tor a Tiger victory on
Thanksgiving Day, he said that he had
not given up hope of defeating Kan
sas and that every effort would be
made to get all the injured players in
shape to start the game. Coach
Schulte said: "Kansas has a fine, well
coached team, its linemen are big and
the ends get down the field fast. The
Jayhawker backs are playing better
than I ever saw a K. U. backfield play
and the team has a good kicker."
Light scrimmage practice will be
the order for the week. On Saturday
the freshman team will play the
Varsity a real game, to be known as
the "All-American" game. John Mil
ler, coach of the freshmen, may play,
and J. L. ("Snooze") Groves wants
