DOLLARS FOR IDEALS
Tomorrow the campaign for the
United War Activities fund begins.
Solicitors will call on the residents of
Columbia at their homes for their
subscriptions. There is little excuse
for anyone who doesn't give some
thing. Buying Liberty Bonds in the right
spirit means an actual sacrifice to
many persons in moderate circumctan
ces. While a hundr dollars may not rep
resent a large sum of money, yet the
majority of people have to sacrifice
to withdraw this amount from the
family treasury. To some the price
of even a $50 bond is prohibitive. But
everyone, by really trying, cm g've
something to the United War Work
campaign because there is no mini
mum amount set for a person's 'n
tribution. If you can't give $10, give
$5 or less. But give.

the only sources of recreation and'
pleasure or our ngntmg torces in
France. Far from the influence of
family and friends, with nothing to
give them pleasure, seeing always the
bloodshed and desolation of war, they
have only these seven war activities
to look out for their welfare. The hut
of the Y. M. C. A. or the Knights of
Columbus or the Jewish Welfare
Board is home to them. It is a place
where they can gather during their
leisure hours, write letters, talk, hear
lectures, see picture shows and other
amusements and forget for a time tho
heart-rending scenes they must view
in the trenches and the ever-! rerent
grim specter of death.

DONT SLACKEN UP YET
With the end of actual fighting ap
parently drawing near, many of us
are inclined to slacken up in our war
activities. Let's not begin too saon.
It is estimated that it will take a
year or more to get all the men back
to the United States. In the meantime
they will still need the supplies that
they have needed before. Winter I

There is an idea abroad among peo

THE OPEN COLUMN
Editor the Missouri: It will be
learned with deep and sincere regret
by members of the faculty of this
University of the death of Dr. Andrew
Dick:on White, first president of Cor
nell University, former Ambassador
to Germany and Russia, president of
American delegation to Hague Peace
Conference and one of the best known
statesmen and educators in the coun
try. Dr. White died at his home in
Ithaca, N. Y., following an Illness of a
few days resulting from a stroke of

Honor of France, member of the Roy
al Academy of Sciences of Berlin, reci

and Literature from the Prussian gov

dallist and was the first Clark Prize
man at Yale.
He was an ex-president of the Amer
lean Social Science Association and
American Historical Society. He was
also a member of the Union League
and Country Clubs of New York City
and of Cosmo of Washington.
In 1S71 he was appointed as com
missioner to Santo Domingo to study
and report on annexation. He was
appointed commissioner to Paris Ex
position in 1S78, Minister to Berlin
in 1879-1881. He was Minister to St.
Petersburg In 1S92-1894, was a mem
ber of the Venezuelan commission in
1895 and Ambassador to Germany in
1897 to 1903. He was also a regent
of the Smithsonian Institute and a
trustee of the Carnegie Institution for
Research and peace foundation in
Washington and Cornell University.
He was to have celebrated his SGth
birthday on Thursday Nov. 7.
His great love of humanity, his ac
complishments in education and diplo
macy, his knowledge of men and
books together with his most ardent
pursuits in architecture, music, lit
erature and religion have endeared
him to friends and associates beyond
the power of words. I recall his
striking statement at a recent com
mencement address "Today Is the dls-
ciple of yesterday; tomorrow,
wuh such men as Dp
day." With such men as Dr. White

THE NEW BOOKS
Front Baseball to Bodies"."
The author, H. C. Witwer. gives in
these nine innings an interesting hu
man picture of the American Army
in France. Surely the reader gets
more of the feeling that our men are
actually there and were giving up
their lives even as the men of the
other Allies have done.
The true American spirit is shown
here. It might almost be called brag,
except that it is so obviously put on
to cover up the real humility our men
feel before these nations who have
been carrying the burden so long.
Breezy, fun-provoking, rollicking as
the letters are, underneath there is
the realization of what the Germans
are and the fixed determination to
make them pay.

TELLS CHILDREN TO KEEP WELL
Poster Club Also Illustrates Other
The Poster Club, a student organ
ization of the University, under the
supervision of Miss Gladys Wheat, Is
making patriotic posters to be sent
over the state in the interest of the
Women's Committee of the National
Council of Defense. They tell the
aim of the committee, state-wide or
ganization of women for patriotic ser
vice, and outline the departments of
work, child welfare, Americanization,
education, food, health, and recreation.
and women in industry.
The child welfare posters illustrate
the care of the eyes and teeth, cor
rect breathing, what to eat and what
not to eat- One poster, on the old
way, getting sick and then getting
well, shows a child in bed with the
doctor giving medicine. The new
way, keeping well, has a group of
three children, one washing his teeth,
another exercising, and the third
splashing in the tub.
Miss Ella V. Dobbs will use these
posters In her extension work. They
are in stencil designs, and can be du
plicated any number of times. Posters
may be obtained through Miss Dobbs.
The Poster Club is an informal or
ganization. Any student interested in
the work may become a member by
paying a fee. Miss Eva Johnston, ad-
viser of women, keeps a list of the
members, and they are exempted from
other war work.
