Halts yibcoTcrj In Columbia
"I just happened to discover the .
School of Journalism,' said Mrs.
Nina Wilcox Putnam, who passed
through Columbia today on a trans
continental tour. "We drove into
town lal night. We were tired and
were looking for nay place to stop
for the night. Our chauffeur, a typ
ical New Yorker, remarked, "This
is a keen town.
"We stopped at the Daniel Boone
Tavern. I bought a paper. The Co
lumbia Evening Missourian. It was
a wonderful paper for a small town.
"Inquiry developed the fact that
1 was in the teat of Missouri's Uni
versity and that the paper was pub
' lfched by the School of Journalism.
That paper is wonderful. I never
saw an) thing like it published by
other than long-experienced news-,
paper men in large cities. The truth i
is, it is not an amateur prodoetion.
So I decided to find out something
about that School of Journalism end
that is why I am here this morning.
I have already subscribed for tbe
Missourian for the coming year."

for ihetSamrdar Evening Post, who was
in Columbia today on a transcontinental
tour in an automobile from New York
to San Francisco.
Mrs. Putnam is writing a story of jliis

American does not say anything to
counteract that talk.
"We are all so busy taking care of
our own affairs that we do not take
time to get up on our hlna legs and
talk the other side of the question,"
she said. "Thus far my trip has been!
a pleasant surprise. I hare found noth.
ing but the highest sentiments and
ideals of Americanism expressed in the
places 1 have visited.
"The small towns of tin middle west
are wonderful. You know I feel as if
I were juit now seeing the real Amr
ica." Mrs. Putnam remarked that the peo
ple of the East generally spoke of the
Middle West in small letters. She was
surprised to End the small towns of
four or five thousand population having
paved streets, electric lights and water
systems. This is her first tour across
the continent in an automobile. All of
her other trips were by train. She
spoke of Paris. Ilk. St- Charles, Mo and
Columbia as being the most beautiful
small towns she had sees.
"We have nothing like them In the
East," she said.
Mrs. Putnam spoke in glowing terms
