01,11 AM) NKiV PLEASURES
Many persons lament the "good old
days" In looking at the pleasures of
the younger generation today, and
perhaps they are right. They bemoan
the fact that the present day amuse
ments are artificial and less whole
some than those of their youth. The
modern tendency to dance from the
time an ability to maintain balance
is obtained comes in for the larger
part of this blame. To it Is attribu
ted the passing of the old-time pleas
ures. Now young people still in
short trousers and short skirts be
long to dancing clubs and consider
dancing as the most important of
their social activities, something
everyone does an'1, that they must do
to keep up with their set. Social
standing in all the younger sets now
is determined solely by the dance,
these critics say, the more regularly
you attend dances, the firmer your
social standing. The whole social
atmosphere in all its artificiality is
built around this major pastime.
But in their youth the pleasures
were more wholesome and more nat
ural. Then the idea of conspicuous
consumption was unthought of. The
pastimes were simple, but they have
left the pleasantest memories with
those who lived in the days they like
to compare with the present ones.
There were all the old-fashioned
games that everyone enjoyed, and
that caused continuous laughter.
How much laughter is seen at the
dances of today? There were the
taffy-pulls and apple-roastings, the
hay-rides and sleighing and skating
parties. Then people had the kind
of party that is only heard of today,
when everyone went to the home of
one of the younger folks and spent
the evening care free and in whole-,
hearted enjoyment, knowing every
one, and without the restraint that
marks present-day affairs that aim to
supplant the old-time parties.
Nowadays, the younger set judges
too much by its monetary value. If
it costs considerable it is good; if
inexpensive it is likely to be shunned.
Amusements must be expensive.
Young men now spend more money
on amusements than their fathers
did for all their living expenses. It
is almost imperative for them to have
an automobile if they are to keep up
appearances. So all through the
present-day sports runs the idea of
conspicuous consumption to keep up
appearances, to "keep up with Liz
zie." And it is this idea that the old
boys and girls bewail. Perhaps their
lament is justified. Perhaps the ma
jority of the younger set would be
willing to revert to the pleasures of
the old days, for all who follow the
crowd today are not satisfied.
eral term "truck," and everything
from lace curtains to Civil War bed
springs can be found between the
north city limits and Bear Creek.
Loads of truck have been dumped
indiscriminately down slight inclines
along the road by garbage haulers
and thoughtless persons wishing to
get trash out of their own sight, and
the city allows it. There is scarcely
a road leading out of Columbia which
has not been strewn with rubbish and
filth. Rubbish that was dumped ten
years ago remains 'uncovered today in
certain places along "classic" Hlnk

to such protection when in attendance

Secreinry Baker's Athice.
Editor the MIssourian: Few college
men will heed Secretary of War
Baker's advice to continue their edu
cation and not to go into national
service until they are drafted unless
the Secretary gives them some assur
ance that they will be allowed to fin
ish their school work.
Under the new classification of the
draft the college man is rated Al for
military service. He usually has no
dependents and his occupation is not
considered to be necessary for the
maintenance of the Government, To
avoid being in the National Army the
college man has preferred to join
some branch of the service which is
congenial to him before he is called.
The officers' training camps, the
aviation corps, the ambulance service
and the navy have been choice of the
college men. Many of the students In
the University are now enlisting in
some branch of the service so that
they will not be in the new draft
classes. If Secretary Baker has any
reasons for saying that college men
should stay in school, if there will be
some provision in the new draft
classes for them, he had better di
vufge them now, for the students are
going to enter that branch where
their training will count for more
than it does in the National Army.
-The Fight For the Republic."
'The Fight For the Republic" by
Rossiter Johnson is a narrative of the
important events in our Civil War pre
senting its dramatic aspects. The
war is referred to "as perfect a
drama as poet ever penned and play
ers ever presented."
Doctor Johnson is an acknowledged
authority and was chosen to write the
chapter on Gettysburg for the addi
tions to Creasey's "Fifteen Decisive
Battles of the World."
Causes are given small consideration
as "the causes are all plainly writ
ten in open history" and statistics
play but small part, but that small
part is interestingly written in the
chapter, "The Measure of Valor."
The events which were either the
turning points of or distinctly advanc
ed or retarded the general movements
toward the end are treated in full;

It Pays to
Buy the Best
But every housewife should remem
ber that the best is not always the highest
priced. Experience has taught me that you can't always
judge quality by the cost sign.
That is particularly true of baking
powder. Baking powder quality can be de
termined only by bake day results. The baking powder that
serves you best regardless of what you pay is the best to
buy and use.
I have made a close study and care
ful investigation of baking powder, because it
is unquestionably one of the most important of baking ma
terials. It effects all ingredients employed with it.
No woman, no matter how careful
her Selection of flour, sugar, eggs, etc., can
employ the limit of baking economy if she uses a poorly
made, wasteful baking powder.
Merit, not money, is the only safe
basis upon which to estimate the worth of a:
baking powder. Fortunately the housewife no longer has to
conduct costly experiments of her own to determine just which
particular brand is the most efficient and economical. Experts
like myself, make a business of testing baking powders and
accurately arriving at their actual value. We make no mistakes in our
decisions as our experiments are made along stricdy scientific lines.
Millions of women are now profit
ing by the aid offered by domestic scientists.
I know this to be true as choice is now centered on the
brand of baking powder that I and othendomestic scientists have
found superior through both chemical and oven tests. It is
becoming more popular every day. Its tremendous sales
increase was not influenced in the least 7 cost. It is a moderate
priced baking rxmder. Costs considenuliy less than some other
brands. Still it is preferred by women who could and would pay more
were it possible to secure the desired quality. They don't buy this
brand of baking powder because of a saving of cost but because
of its demomtrated superiority. To them it means the greatest
quality value the greatest purity and greatest certainty of results
that can be had at any price. Decidedly the best, not because
ot moderate price, but because of its unimprovable merit.
In justice to those who read this
article that they may share in the savings and
baking success assured by the biggest selling and recognized
superior baking powder it is no more than fair that I give publicity
to the brand preferred alike by experts and America's millions of
housewives Calumet Baking Powder.
