this da) mean to the Columbia people,
to Columbia itself,
i Columbia is a city that has been built
up around its educational institutions. It
has Irecomc a business center, a state
center of student life largely through the
Homecoming Day is the biggest day of
the jcar for the University. It is a day
that Columbia business houses and Co
lumbia people can help make successful.
Th: vcar there is a lack of funds. The
students cannot be expected to take the
burden of finance entirely upon their
or.n shoulders. The University will of
course, meet the largest part of the ex
penses. The townspeople can help, not
only by giving money but by showing stu
dents and facult that' they are working
to make the day a success.
The attitude of Columbians will have
its effect upon the efforts of the Univer
sity. There is nothing so stimulating
i the knowledge that others are behind
rmc ami are in mpathy and favor with
what one is doing that they will be
gl:d to do eventhing that will be of help.
The past is dead. The gray army
fought valiantly and consciously for .a
lust cause, and the criticism of a dead
president nil! avail them nothing; A ma
jority of thCj veterans know this and re
fused to pay any attention to discontent
ed grumblings of a few men who, still
living in the past, seek to keep alive old
hatreds and enmities.
The majority of the veterans accepted
defeat long ago with the grace that be

-MISSOURI'S BLANKET BALLOT
When the Boone County voter went to
the noils today, he was confronted with a
ballot some two feet wide and more than
three feet long. Besides having had to
, tote for candidates for twenty-eight offi
ces, he was supposed to give the three
proposed constitutional amendments and
seventeen other propositions his careful
con'ideration and vote. To do all of this
cash totcr would have had to be in the
election booth at least fifteen minutes.
As long as voters are required to piss
upon so many offices, it will not be possi
ble for them to make an intelligent
choice. Some of these offices are impor
tant and others are unimportant. The
combination of the two merely confuses
the voter and at the same time increases
the power of political machines, which
profit by thcability to trade and bargain
for the popular choice nf a large number
in the make-up of a slate. To provide
of insignificant officials docs not increase,"
but on the contrary, diminishes the power
rf the toter.
Fear that freezing weather would dam

the cause for the city engineer of Jeffer

He tells some exciting tales of the 'winters
Once, his wife was in the hospital in
Portland, and he went in to bring her
home in a driving snow. She left the hos

was on the 20th. About two miles from
home, the car broke down, and -it took

cause were below the road far enough
away to atoid the heavy drifts from the
hill." They call them hills there, but to
Missourians they are mountains. Mr.
Allen said he did the same thing when
be first came to the country.
"Say "hello to an) body who knows me,"
ct- isaid the man who is satisfied.with bis job.
"though I don t suppose there are many
left in Columbia who would remember me
now, and," he added with genuine enthu
siasm, "tell them all to come to Oregon.'

carefully scrutinized, and he,j most dis

There arc two other t)pes of pictorial
coter, the narratitc and the caricature.
The former is often humorous and is
found on papers read by men and bo)s.
It tells a stor) appropriate to the sea-
fon ol April root pranks and fourth of
July celebrations; of Thanksgiving din
ners and Christmas trees.
The caricature coter is found only on
the smartest publications. It is a swirl
of color against which great ladies lead
abnormally elongated Rftsian wolf
hounds; or important papas take their
pearl-armored families to the opera. The
coter ladies of these magazines have
hands more slender than a toothpick and
one wonders where they buy their per
fectly fitting shoes and glotes. They
view the world from narrowed eyes, dis
daining all that is unlike themselves.
On one November periodical is seen
the leading character of a nineteenth
century novel. .Another magazine used
