NAPOLEON MIGHT ENVY HIM
At the end of his great campaigns,
in which he attempted but failed to
conquer the world, Napoleon sat on
the Island of St. Helena and dreamed
dreams of remorse. British war ves
sels patrolled surrounding waters to
prevent his escape because the world
felt that Napoleon's company was a
dangerous and disturbing element in
John J. Pershing, at the end of his
great campaign, in which he led an
American army to a glorious victory
for morality and justice', is on his
way home to be received by an ap
plauding nation. The memories of his
military action in France will never
be cloyed by a tinge of remorse.
This illustrates the old-new differ
ence between egoistic selfishness and
disinterested altruism. The former
seeks glory and effects downfall and
remorse; the latter seeks paths of
duty and service and effects eternal
gratitude. The proud shall be hum
bled and the humble raised up.
John J. Pershing has trod the way
of wisdom, and on the Island of St.
Helena the spirit of Napoleon crouch
es in envy.
The man who goes around wishing
he had never been born is not always
the only one who regrets it.
Although it is charged that moving
pictures increase crime, no effort has
yet been made to tabulate just how
many bolshevist converts can be
traced to tennis or golf.
The outlook for the Republic of
Poland today is the brightest in the
tumultous history of that country.
What is now Poland was formerly
three depressed dependencies, Rus
sian, German, Austrian, the remnants
after the paitition of old Poland.
These three sections were arbitrarily
separated from one another by arti
ficial customs barriers, different cur
rency, diverse laws, by every conceiv
able means of decentralization. Today
Allied commissions are studying con
ditions in the re-united republic with
an eye to rendering the country self
sufficient now that the artificial bar
riers have been torn down.
The country is rich in agricultural
lands, in mineral deposits, in unde
veloped water power. It has large
cities well linked together by rail and
highways Its greatest asset is its
access to the port of the free city of
Danzig. Under the old regime Rus
sia, Germany or Austria took toll of
all exports and imports from the three
provinces, which prevented the Poles
from attaining the commercial and
industrial position to which their abil
ities entitled them.
The commissions are optimistic as
to the future of Poland. At present
more than half of the country's in
dustries are at a standstill, but once
equipped with the financial system
contemplated by the Allied commis
sions, Poland should speedily take
rank as one of the important indus
trial and commercial countries of Eu

Doctor Hill's Position
From the St. Louis Republic:
Commenting upon the reasons which
led H. F. Schulte to resign as foot
ball coach at the University of Mis
souri when a similar position was of
fered to him at the University of Ne
braska, President Hill says:
"As Mr. Schulte accepts the same
position at Nebraska that he has held
here, it is simply a question of wheth
er an Institution will pay a higher
salary for athletic coaching than for
instruction in standard academic and
professional subjects. This the Uni
versity of Missouri will not do."
We have no doubt that the people
of Missouri will back the president in
that policy. University professors and
teachers of lower rank are not paid
as much as they are entitled to in
the light of the ability that is de
manded of them and their long course
of apprenticeship. Members of uni
versity faculties having families and
a legitimate desire to prepare for old
age have a problem that is pretty
nearly insoluble. Their income from
salary is generally not adequate, and
if they apply their talents to outside
work their work in the university
is likely to suffer.
Recognition of these facts has led
to an effort to increase the incomes of
university teachers. In making this
effort it is argued that subfaculty
teachers, and even professors in some
cases, earn less than men in many of
the skilled trades. The argument is
a forceful one, but it loses force wh-r.
the unnersities themselves pay more
for a professor of beef and brawn
than for a professor of law, philosophy
It is well that the University of Mis
souri refuses to set any such example.
CITY AND CAMPUS j
John F. Rhodes left this afternoon
for Hutchinson, Kansas.
Warren Milligan, a student in the
School of Journalism of the Univer

GOES HANDCUFFED TO BICYCLE
Toil Pizzo uii Way to N. Y. From
Venice, Cnl. For $3,500 Wager.
Fastened by a long chain to
the bicycle he was riding, Tony Pizzo,
a discharged sailor, early last night
passed through Columbia on his way
from Venice, Cal., to New York City.
Pizzo sleeps with his machine and
eats with it chained to him. He is
making the trip on a 53,500 wager.
C. J. iDevine. who started the tour
with Pizzo and under the same con
ditions of traveling, was severely in
jured when struck by an automobile
at Spearville, Kan., and is now in a
hospital in Kansas City recoveiing
from the wounds.
The contest arose over a bet which
Roscoe ("Fatty") Arbuckle made with
another motion picture actor, Pizzo
said, that no one could cross the Am
erican Desert on a bicycle. To win
the $3,500, Pizzo must reach New York
City by November 1. Although he is
almost a month behind his schedule,
he is now traveling from ninety to a
hundred and ten miles a day, and ex
pects to arrive in New York on time.
Pizzo's hancuffs, which were sealed
by Arbuckle at the Ship Cafe in Ven
ice, Cal.i .May 18, will be sawed off
by Mayor Hylan of New York. He
carries a letter from the mayor of Los
Angeles to Mayor Hylan, and also a
letter from the governor of California
to Woodrow Wilson.
Pizzo was formerly a motion pic
ture actor. He is making his expenses
on the trip by selling souvenir post

economical in salads, omelets, escal
loped dishes and to use as garnishes
Xor meat dishes If the small quanti
ties left from packing different vege
tables whole are placed in one can,
many desirable combinations can be
made. A good combination during the
spring season is young carrots, peas,
string beans and young onions. A
mixture which the fall garden might
furnish is peppers, celery, onions and
small lima beans. Do not use beets
in such combinations, because they
will discolor the mixture..
All the egetables are prepared sep
arately, as for canning, and packed in
layers in a well-boiled jar, according
to United States Department of Agri
culture specialists. Each layer should
be packed as tightly as possible before
the next is added. Fill the jars with a
brine. Put on a boiled top and a rub
ber. Process in waterbath canner ei

canner either 120 minutes one day, or
one hour on three successie days, or
thirty-five minutes in steam-pressure
cooker under fifteen ipounds pressure.
Concentrated Soup Recommended.
An excellent concentrated vegetable
soup can be made from any desired
mixture of vegetables. A tasteful com
bination to can consists of one quart
of concentrated tomato pulp, tomatoes
boiled down until thick, one pint of
corn, or tiny lima beans, one pint of
okra, and four teaspoonfuls of sugar
and salt mixture made by mixing
sugar and salt in the proportion of
one-third salt to two-thirds sugar.
To make thp tomato pulp, cook to
gether three quarts of sliced tomatoes,
one small chopped onion and one-half
cup of chopped sweet red -pepper. Put
through a sieve and remove seeds and
skin. Return strained pulp to the ket
tle and cook down to about the con
sistency of catsup. Measure, add the
corn or beans and okra, which has
been prepared as for canning, wi'h
seasoning. Cook altogether for ten
minutes and pack hot into jars which
have been previously boiled fifteen
minutes. Put on a boiled top and
cleansed rubber, partially seal and
place on the false bottom in the water
bath canner with water to cover.
If the single-period continuous
method of processing is followed, boil
at least two hours. If the intermittent
boiling process is used, boil 'for one
hour on each of three successive days.
Before each subsequent boiling, the
covers must be loosened and after
each boiling the covers must be se
curely tightened again to make seal
Processing under steam pressure is
recommended. Quart jars should be
processed thirty-five minutes under
fifteen pounds pressure. On removal,
tighten the tops, invert 'to test for
leaks, and when cool put in a dry,
dark, cool place.
