VROOMAN IS INVITED
A 1VAU OK ntixcii'i.i:
For the United States and its allies
this is a war of high principle, de
based by no selfish ambition, with no
thought of conquest or spoliation.
President Wilson in his address to
Congress defined our aims and inten
tions and said that the Ameriian peo
ple have a right to know whether the
purposes of the powers at Washing
ton are the same as those of the
Americans back home.
This declaration of aims and inten
tions is addressed not merely to the
American Congress and to tbe Amer
ican people, but to the whole world,
friend and foe alike. It is a notice,
a clear-cut warning, to the Central
powers against which we are light
ing, and it is also a notice, setting
forth our aims and intentions, con
cisely, to our Allies. He gives the
world to understand that we demand
justice; nothing more and nothing
less; "justice done at every point and
to every nation the final settlement
"The wrongs, the very deep wrongs,
committed in this war will have to
be righted." he tells the Germans,
and then he faces about and says to
the Allies that "they cannot and must
not be righted by the commission of
Mmilar wrongs against Germany and
Since this is not a war of material
gain or political advantage, the war
cannot be settled by "covenants of
selfishness or compromise." It is a
war. according to President Wilson,
"of high, disinterested purpose, in
which all the free peoples of the
world' are banded together for the
vindication of right. The cause be
ing just and holy, the settlement
must be of like motive and quality.
For this we can fight, but for noth
ing less noble or less worthy of our
traditions. For this cause we entered
the war. and for this cause we will
battle until tlie last gun is fired."
That it is more blessed to give than
to receive is an admittedly proven
fact from the experience of every
person. But there are kinds and de
grees of charity the same as there
are varieties of pickles or cuts of
beef. Accompanying the giving there
must be a spirit of real sacrifice man
ifested by the donor and an attitude
of appreciation expressed by the re
ceiver. To give of one's abundance merely
to satisfy the temporary demands of
Borne relief organization or bush the
cries of anonymous beggars is not
enough. Charity, to be lasting and
effective, should be constructive.
Rather than earn tlie thanks of one
person today and require the aid of
another tomorrow, a gift of whatever
it might be should look ultimately,
but with clearness, to helping the re
ceiver to help himself. A word of
friendly counsel or a volley of frank
ciiticism may accomplish more for
many persons than a lavish contribu
tion of money or food.
Helping men to help themselves is
indeed a mammoth task. It entails
the giving of material wealth, per
haps, but careful consideration for
the primary needs of each individual
a chance to make good for himself
is paramount. Judicious as well as
liberal giving is to be commended.
In the same way that waste is bad
and an indiscriminate economy worse,
so also mere giving is good, and
constructive charity is better.

Assistant Secretary of Agri

Expected at Meeting.
Miss Margaret Wilson, daughter of
the President, may visit Columbia
during Farmers' Week. January 14
to IS, if arrangements entered into
are completed satisfactorily. She
will give a benefit for the Red Cross.
Hopes that Carl Vrooman, assistant
Secretary of Agriculture, would be
present were expressed by A. J.
Meyer, director of the week, today.
"There is a good chance that Mr.
Vrooman will be here," Mr. .Meyer
said. "There is not a great possi
bility of Herbert Hoover, food con
troller, speaking, because Mr. Hoover
is very busy and also has an antipa
thy toward appearing in public But
I think Miss Wilson and Secretary
Vrooman will come."
The Farmers' Week, at the Univer
sity has become to tbe airicultural
and live stock interests of .Missouri

fourteen to eighteen organizations,
ranging from the state apiary asso
ciation to tbe corn growers, hold their
annual session at Columbia. More
than t-'.OOO farmers are expected to be
present, take part in the various
competitions and listen to the addresses.
Governor Gardner and Uel W. Lam
kin, superintendent of public instruc
tion of Missouri, have signified their
intention of attending.
Perhaps the most savory portion of
the exhibitsto townspeople will
be the ham and bacon show. Several
dozen of the choicest bits of meat in
Missouri are to bo judged and prob
ably sold. A series of lectures anil
demonstrations of how to slaughter
and cut up meat economically will be
