"WHATSA SCOKE PLEASE !
They Said That to JIfcsourian Jinn AH
"Will you please tell me the
"Missouri 6, Kansas 0."
"Whoopla, say it again."
This is just a sample of the dia
logue which took place over the tele
phone at the Missourian office hun
dreds 'of times last Thursday after
noon when students and Columbians
who stayed in town called up to get
the "straight dope" first hand about
the gridiron battle at Lawrence. There
was a crowd at the top of the stairs
just In front of the Virginia Build
ing. Hundreds haI gone to Lawrence to
cheer the Tigers on to victory. Hun
dreds more had irons home to Kit tur
key with the tome folks. But enough
were lert in Columbia to keep the tel
ephone wire hot calling "55" all aft
ernoon and until 9 o'clock at night.
The expressions used were iiylices
of the way each fellow had bet. or
whether he was purely for Missouri,
win or lose. And about equally often
it was "she" who called nrp to get the
dope on the way the Tigers were play
ing. "What's the score?"
That was the call most generally
Nothing interetsing in the way of a
reaction was noticed until word was
flashed over the wire that Missouri
had made a touchdown. Then the
crowd in front of the bulletin! board
went wild with enthusiasm. Ppnnlp
wiho called up over the telephone
rarely stopped to learn who made the
touchdown or whether goal had been
successful. Just one hier whnrm inrt
they went dancing away frcm the
teiepnones leaving the Missourian man
to tell the rest "of the story to the tel
ephone. ''Missouri 6, Kansas 0." Magic
But when later bbe scorp wm m.
ncunci)! as 13 to 0, the questioners
mecame incredulous. Itt was too good
to be true.
''Will you please say that again?"
they would ask.
Sometimes thev nnnld nrv-i.cn fha
Missourian man of insincerity. Once
in a while one would groan when he
heard the news and saw his ten spot,
or $20 bill, or whatever it was go
One man called up to hear the
score at 13 to 0 in favor of the Tigers
and exclaimed: "Well I lose $15 oat
that but I'm glad to hear it anyway."

Columbians Hope to Have
Vigilance Committee" in
Motor Car Owners Working
on Membership Lists to
Auto-owners' Vigilance Committees
in every town in Missouri that is
the aim of the promoters of the Co
lumbia Auto-Owners' Vigilance Com
mittee.) With the indorsement of George
Starrett, prosecuting attorney, and
Cityjtfarshal John L. Whitesides sev
eral' business and professional men
of Columbia were working raoterday
and today on the membership lists.
The first meeting of the committee
will be held in the courthouse next
week. At that time a permaitnt or
ganization will be affected, officers
elected and a definite plan of action
"A vigilance committee is the only
thing that will stop auto stealing and
joy-riding in other people's cars," said
Dr. C. F. Edmonston, the father of
the plan today. "A vigilance commit
tee stopped horse-stealing in this
county thirty years ago. Stopped it
just that quick! Of course it was
hard on a few of , the horse-thieves.
But most of them got out of business
in time. We'll do the same with auto
thieves. What'll we do with the joy
riders, the students who burn other
people's gas in other people's cars?
I wonder! Thirty years ago, you
know, if they didn't hang a horse
thief they horse-whipped him."
Cool Headed 3Ien Needed.
Doctor Edmonston emphasizes the
need of cool-headed men in charge of
the committee. "We don't want to
treat an innocent man harshly. It is
necessary that the officers of the Co
lumbia Auto-Owners' Vigilance Com
mittee be the most reputable, best
known men in the city. With such
men at the head we can drive every
car-thief out) of Boone iCounty or
persuade him to quit stealing cars."
"While the local organization will
stop thefts in the county," Doctor Ed
monston continued, "I know that with
in a week after our committee is
formed auto-owners in other cities
will be writing to us for information
on how to form. With the right sort
of organization we can make Missou
ri hog-tight against auto-thieves."
To Publish Members' Names.
There will be but two classes of
auto-o'wners in Columbia after the
meeting at the courthouse next week,
is the declaration of the promoters
of the committee. One class will be
composed of members of the Vigilance
Committee. The other class will be
composed of those who are not mem
bers, either because their cars are in
sured against theft, or because they
do not want to antagonize the student'
joy-riders, some of who they know to
be their customers. Lists of the two
classes will be printed side by side
in paid advertisements in local pa
pers. The exact date of the meeting will
be announced Monday.
