Edgar D. Lee was presented as the
new president of the college. He spoke
of the work and place of the junior col
lege. The plan of Christian College is
not only to prepare its students to con'
tinne their work in institutions of high
er learning but to prepare them to go
forth well-equipped for life.
"The whole idea of the institution."
lie said, "is to aid the girl in making
tie mot of every talent"
After paying a tribute to Mrs. Moss,
the new president spoke of the plans
that had been nude for the year.
"In the light of my inexperience as a
college president, it would be presum
ing to outline a definite program." he
said. "However, I shall say that it will
be my policy to limit the number of the
student body. Boarding students with
our preeat accommodations, will be
limited to 25a 1 believe in a small
In behalf of the University. Walter
Mifler, Jean of the Graduate School,
greeted the students and faculty of
Christian College. He spoke of the re
sponsibility of the new president and con
gratulated him and the college that Mrs.

operate in their educalinoal.workj,
Following Dean Miller, J. It Cour
sault. dean of the School of Education of
the University, spoke as a fpresentalive
He spoke of the work of colleges for
women, emphasizing the new idea in the
education of Women. He described the
woman's college of years ago as a place
where some of the graces might be ob
tained but no fundamental training.
"The only place a woman could get
such training was in a co-educational in
stitution." he said, "and the courses in
the co-educational schools were built for
Conditions now are quite different, he
said. The field of activities for women
now takes in all of the professions and
with this expansion of the field came the
ideal of schools with their courses made
for women. He congratulated the Stu
dents on being rn such an institution at
such an opportune time.
Dr. James M. Wood, as president of
Stephens College, greeted the Chrutian
College faculty and student body. He.
too, spoke of the changed system of edu.
cation for women. "The new idea," he
said, "is built up to develop woman's
dominant instinct to serve."
The convocation exercises were opened
by a brief devotional service conducted
by the Rev. Walter Haushalter. Two
musical numbers were given, a vocal se
lection. "Our Task," by Mrs. Anna Fro
'man. head of the voice department of
Christian College, and an instrumental
selectio nby Miss Marcia Bailey of tbe
Frank C. Harris, vice president of the
board of trustees, represented the board.
He spoke of the sincere regret with
which the board had accepted the res
ignation of Mrs. Moss and of their .de
light that she was to continue" in the
work of making Christian College a bet
ter school. He congratulated the students
that such a well-qualified man as Mr.
Lee had been found to take the presi
dency. The benediction was asked by Dean
C. D. Edwards of the Bible College.
HEALTH C0XDIT10X8 OOOD
Doctors Say There Ja LMtle Sickness
The health of both resident's and
students in Columbia is generally very
good, according la Dr. James Gordon
this morning. x
"As a rule ". said Doctor Gordon,
"many of the contagious troubles, such
as measles, mumps, etc, are brought to
Columbia by the students who come
from towns and counties from all over
ihe slate." A great deal of sickness is
brought here by students returning after .
There is unusually good health among
ihe people ol the town as well as all over
Ihe county," said Dr. W. A. Norris, sec.
aviary of the board of health. "I have
been visiting country schools throughout
the county and the health of the children
is very good. We can never tell, however,
when an epidemic will announce itself
Jrereia our midst, so it is well to exer
cise a certain degree of caution," h con-clued.
For Columbia and vicinity: Cener
ally fair tonight and Sunday; not much
change in temperature but somewhat
For Missouri: Fair tonight and Sun-
day; not much change in temperature.
