"Aside from giving diversions, the

brings delightful companionship. Best of
all, golf emancipates one from business
ideas, if only for a few hours. It enrich

tennis, for he was a member of tlie vie

long frit need. The University course is
overrun at certain limes of the day, and
the new one will be greatly appreciated
by lovers of golf."
Mr. Haushalter was runnerup in the

HtrUX AT HALL TIIEATU
james 1 nomas iienin, congressman
from the Fifth Congressional District of
Alabama, who will speak at the Hall
Theater tomorrow evening, is known in
Washington as ''Tom" Hefiin. "I have
known him to have more men listening to
his stories in the lobby or smoking room
than would be listening lo the speeches
on the Door of the house, says Con
gressman W. L. Nelson of Columbia.
I nave never known rami to use. an
anecdote in a speech in Congress. There
he usually speaks in a .serious vein.
Whenever he uses a story or anecdote in
a public address, it is to drive home a
point more forcefully.
"Mr. HefUn is a big, fine-Iookinc fel

statesman. In winter he usually has on

BILL IS URGED
Missouri State Teachers' Asso
ciation Advocates Govern
ment of Board.
A complete reorganization of all coun
ty schools is the most important pro
vision of the County Unit Bill which
the Missouri State Teachers' Associa
tion will attempt lo have passed by the
In discussing the program of the as
sociation at the community meeting yes
terday, J. D. Elliff said: This is the
most important piece of school legisla
tion in twenty years."
The Jiill, filing twenty typewritten
pages, will be printed in the next issue
of School and Community, the official or
gan of the association. It aims lo unite
all county, consolidated and rural schools
tinder the government of a cunnty board.
This board will consist of five members
who will elect the county superintendent.
These officers are to be given one year
to divide the county into sub-districts.
There must be one high school in each
district, with rural schools where tbey
are needed. fc
The local' board will be a board of
trustees to take the place of directors.
When the bill, was discussed before, the
county boards were unwilling to give over
their authority. Under- the new position.
they will look after the school grounds
and be permuted an annual budget of
teachers' wages, janitors wages, building
repairs, elc, which it will make public
each March. Teachers will be hired only
with the sanction of the superintendent
and local board.
The bill provides that taxes shall not
be laid on ihe basis of the assessed
valuation but with a view lo eivinz each
child a common and Idgh school educa
tion. It makes a minimum allotment of
$35 for each child in daily school at
tendance and this may be. raised lo HO.
This would enable any county, to, have
as good schools as, are in Columbia.- pro
vided it would tax itself accordingly.
