Despite tlie thousands who crowded
Columbia last Thursday for the Tiger
Jayhawk game and the enthusiasm, both
bottled and otherwise, which was dis
played after the game, the police report
hut no accidents occurred, no complaints
were made to them and no one was ar-rested.
Anticipating the coming of members
of the pocket-picking fraternity which
usually is attracted by a crowd, fire spe
cial detectives were procured lor that
day. One was a private detective from
Kansas Cty and the ether four were
"fly-cops" from the railroads, two from
the Wabash and two from the M. K. & T.
Besides the plain-clothes men. eight
extra police were cut en duty that day.
In order to prevent accidents, streets ad
jacent te Rollins Field vert roped off
and cars kept from parking there. Some
of the extra police were en duty at theae
shut-off streets and others were on doty
on the field.
SCORES COLLEGE FACULTIES
AT THE THEATERS
There were many features In "The
Bird of Paradise" that pleased tbe audi
ence that crowded the Columbia Theater
last night to tee the play. In compari
son with the usual run of plays that come
to Colombia each year, it was a pleasant
diversion and one that was appreiated.
It Is a Hawaiian love story with pretty
scenes, provided by unique stage setting
and iaterspersed with some good Oriental
music. The story Itself is not particular.
ly absorbing and In various parts proves
somewhat dull, yet it serves an ode
(mate and appropriate vehicle for the de
picting of Oriental life and customs. The
cast as a whole is good. rae,rurden ol
carrying the play through to success falls
upon two or three members and they ac
ruii themselves creditably. On the whole
"The Bird of Paradise," aa presented last
tight, is worth while.

Improvements Will Be Made When IT.
In answer to a letter discussing the
need for improved street crossings in
Columbia, published in the open column
of the Evening Mistourian, Mayor James
Gordon said: "The Columbia City Coun
cil knows that the crossings are had and
will look after them as soon as possible.
As yet no plans for repair have been
made, but in time, these necessary im
provements will be attended to.
"We haven't the money to take care of
the many changes that should be accom
plished here. There are thousands of
things to be done In the way of fixing
street crossings, securing additional
lights, water mains and sewers, and all
will be considered as soon as funds permit."
