A Cadillac car was stolen at about 8
o'clock last night from George Scott, ne

The thief, however, was ill fated, for
he ran the car into the curbing at the
corner of William street and University

it useless for further travel. Ther driver
made his escape and has not been found.
The car has been almost as great

purchase it was wrecked in a collision
with a taxi while Boone was going to a

committee, high school graduates, on the
completion of such courses in journalistic
writing or on the basis of work on school
papers, should not be encouraged to take
up newspaper work before having the
liberal education and special professional

The Association of Schools and De

protest by voting to ask entrance boards
of the various institutions represented to
decline to accept for entrance credit any
courses in secondarv schools misbranded

ments of journalism already refuse to
give advanced standing to their students
on the basis of such courses. If their re

Roy Murry is improving a little both
phsically and mentally, but his mind
is still too clouded to remember anything
concerning his disappearance from Col
umbia or his whereabouts during his ab
sence, his fattier, Dr. P. H. Murry, stated.
"He seems to recognize his wife and
child and other members of the family
when they are in the room with him, but
he does not call them by name and he
does not remember today things that hap
pened yesterday," Doctor Murry said.
'When attempts have been made to ques
tion him concerning his absence, be
answers, I don't know.
Doctor Murry said that he is now con
vinced there was no such man as John
Abbott, whose name was signed to the
telegram received last Thursday inform
ing him of his son's presence in Chicago.
"While Policeman W. R. Miller and
myself were in Chicago we made in
quiries in regard to every man of that
name in the county, but we could find
no man named Abbott corresponding to
the description we had of him. But it
was not until after we left Chicago that
I began to suspect a lack of good faith
in the manner of Roy's .restoration. We
have not asked the Chicago police to
look for the stranger who preceded Roy
into the station, as we have no means
of identifying him."
i Doctor Murry expressed the belief that
his son was drugged before he had gone
far from Columbia by persons who had
some reason for desiring to get away in
a hurry and forced Murry to drive them.
He stated the opinion that his son's mind
will gradually clear, and that in time he.
mil be able to remember tbe circum
stances of his disappearance.
