THE CHANGING SPIRIT
The University of Miouri is known
aa a school of democratic spirit. Whether
or not thi spirit grow? from the Middle
WVt spirit of democracy or from the
inclination of the present generation to
inept things and people as they are is
,hard t" determine but the spirit, at all
events, is there.
Si or even hundred students work
their wav through the Universit) each
)ra-. Tlii- jear, however, there ha lieeTi
a slmrtJge of wort, which has doubtless
itir-2.il Leen disappointment to many am
bitious men anil aomen.
The i -in& student lias alwavs had

l.is feMuw students have occasionill)

irj; is Incoming a thing, of the past. In
fai I, it is m little in evidence thit letters
an received from all over the counlrv.
fn.m men viho desire to enter the I'niver-j
sit because of tliat spirit.
Thi. attitude has made it much easier
for the student who is earning hi-, viay it
U helping a larger percentage of men
vhti could not possiblv come here without
vmrl. gain a better education and become
of greater ue. It las often been aid
that working for a thing makes accom
plishment much more valuable.
The question of emplojment is one that
slould be considered by the people of
Columbia even though they are not being
i:rectl benefited b) the students or the
University. Many positions which are
often each vear are in some way connected
with the Universitv, but the people of
Odumbia should realize too, that they
could do much in making an education
aissible for some man or woman who
would otherwise be unable to obtain it.
A little "dry" cleaning might help
clear up the economic situation in Europe.
COURTESY, SERVICE, PRICE.
VI hat makes peop'e leave one store for
another? What causes them to sta ? Is
it price? Yes; in a measure a very
snail measure. A penny less on the
poand of sugar a dollar more for the fall

Debating Club, the majority. will pa)
the difference rather than change stores.
Silt let the clerk show, the least dis

that store. Let the service become a
shade less prompt and the same will hap
pe.i. Courtes) all customers demand
that, and a change in price will affect
them little. Service all customers de
mand that also and no price reduction
will counteract its loss. Price some
customers will follow it as a beacon light,
but the majoril) will not budge unless it
is preceded b) courtesy and service.
It is not the price tag in the window
but the smile on the face of the clerk that
ilraws trade. A careless frown, a thought
less word, a little less prompt service,
will drive awa) more trade than a general
low level of prices will attract or keep.
Prices ma) be all-important to the
economist, but the human heart craves
courtesy and service which is an ex
pression of courtesy far above prices;
far above am tangible and material
Courtesy, smice. price, in the order

PLAGUES AND PROGRESS
Thoe persons who at times become
discouraged with the world and complain
hat there is no progress that the "good
old ela)s" were betters-should consider
the achievements of sanitary engineering.
The natural opportunities for contagion
to spread over the earth on the wings of
commerce are legion. Thousands of trav

Millions of graves, millions of paupers,

The news letter of the Univereit)
'ews Service, ent to alumni of the Uni-
vcrit) and to papers jiver the state,
which came out yesterda), shows that
there i a deeideil gain in the enroll
ment of farm lad in thc'School of Kn

falling off in the enrollment in the Col

Offers of fort) five free scholarships

the College pf Agriculture are going
begging. One is offered by the Mis- j
'ouri Farm Bureau Federation for $200
and one b) the Missouri Farmers Asso

the Missouri Pacific, Railroad and two
b) the Kansas Gt) .Southern Railroad in
ccunlies through which these roads run.
The majorit) of the scholarship will pa)

Intensive training in farm subjects is of
fered in these courses and until this

the prop has gone when the sole has flown

view lies the soft inner sole, covered with
the rublier and cork composition that
sened to help retain the two soles. If
the jazged tear has gone into the inner
sole, the shoemaker cuts out a piece of
leather, lacks it over the aperture, I.ave
it off properl), and the shoe is read) for
the lower sole.
This lower o!e, which is the sina qua

box' the leather is considered tempered
for use. .i.

The 'hoe then serves as a guide, and
the outline of the sole-to-be is executed
on the piece of leather. A sharp knile
deftl) wielded forms the rough outl'tie of
the sole, anil the fun begins. At least,
the shoemaker considers it fun, for he is
not generall) a grouch, at least in Giluni

business is jiivt as likel) to be fun as nut.

O. Backs Plan for Aidine
The Methodist Student Organization
ma) e'tabli'li a permanent 'tudent loan
fund if present plans materialize. For
several months pa't there has been much
tails and tentative plans made for such a
fund for Methodi't students in the Uni
versit) and the Colleges.
The pal fift) vears the Student Loan
Fund, established b) the Melhotb't
Church and contributed to b) bo)s and
girls in Sunda) schools has helped 20,
000 students through school.
Regarding the local loan fund, Mr.
E. II. Nencomb, secretary of the M. S.
O. said, "There could, perhaps, be no
better move on the part of the M. S. O.
Each vear finds numbers of north) stu
dents unable to continue their Univer
sit) vtorls because of financial liandi
cap. Such a fund could be lent on
properl) ecurit), at a very Iov rate of
interest over long terms."
Each )ear M. S. O. has lent money
to students but as no regular provision
has been made, onl) short lime loan
have been possible.

Loner prices in lumber will not come

If the shoe has been danced to death,
