Why They Have Taken

It lias always been said that for a
man to be a good lawyer he must be
a good talker, and It has been con
ceded, moreover, that woman's tongue
runs faster than man's. Whether it
is due to this fact or to something
else that four women have taken' up
the study of law at the University of
.Missouri was left for them to say.
Each one had a very different reason.
Mrs. Adelaide Munson of Kansas
City, who expects to take the bar ex
amination next year, is interested in
trying to help bring about a new
method of criminal procedure.
"We are not decreasing crime by
returning again and again a criminal
to thhe penitentiary," said Mrs. Mun
son. "The only way to decrease crime
is to have the criminal examined
physically and mentally to sec if he
is normal, and if he is not, to treat
She believes that corrective mea
sures would do more toward decreas
ing crime than the continual punish
ment of those persons who are de
fective in one way or another. The
study of law, she thinks, gives to a
person a balance and understanding
of human affairs that cannot possibly
be had from any other course.
"With women." she said, "the study
of law takes a great deal of senti
mentality and frivolity out of them
and they have a broader viewpoint of
he practical affairs of life."
She Was an Architect
Mrs. Munson become interested in
law when only a child, but parental
ideas prevented her from studying it.
Later on she studied architecture in
New York and New Jersey, and aft
erward went to Denver and opened

an office. For a long time she was
one of the very few women architects
in the United States. Mrs. Munson
built a great many houses in Denver.
She appealed particularly to women,
because, she says, they naturally
looked to a woman as better able than
a man to plan a convenient house.
"It takes a woman to build a wo
man's workshop the kitchen," says
Mrs. Munson, "and since that is where
a woman spends most of her time, she
wants that workshop to be Ideal."
Mrs. Munson has done a great deal
of social work in Kansas City and as
a consequence the old desire to study
law has returned. She studied one
year at the Kansas City School oi

work at the University of Missouri

Miss Helen Redding of Webb City
is thinking strongly of going West to
practice law when she is graduated
from the University of Missouri.
Miss Redding is a strong believer of
enforcement of the law.

THE EVENING JOSSOUBIAN,
Freshmen probably will be allowed
to compete In Missouri .Valley Con
ference athletics against other
freshman teams, as a result of the
meeting of the presidents of the Val
ley schools, which was held Saturday
in Kansas City. This special dispen
sation, however. Is only for the dura
tion of the war.
Two Valley schools, Drake and
Washington, will"be allowed to play
freshmen on varsity teanw. They
were granted this privilege because
of their weakness in athletics in com
parison with other teams of the con
ference. The action regarding inter-school
freshman competition still lacks ratl
flcation by the, faculties of the confer
ence schools, and the resolution as
adopted says the matter must be de
cided Uy February 10 for the ruling to
become effective. Two provisions af
fect freshman competition: First,
that athletic work shall not interfere
with military training; second, that
games played shall not exceed 25 per
cent of the number now allowed be
tween Institutions of the conference

The question of conference teams
playing army teams was taken up,
but the matter was not acted upon.
