showed keen interest and in some cases
turprising independent. This gave rise
la the belief tlm the congressional cam
paign itself would be one of the most
spectacular in many years.
The contrary was true, for while both
Republican and Democratic parties or
ganized intensively, there was little pop
ular enthusiasm over candidates or in
terest in issues, except in isolated caes.
THE ItrvAL CLAIMS
Fcr this reason some political proph
ets were exceedingly reticent about pre
dicting the outcome of today's contest.
Republican leaders, as a matter of
course, claimed they would retain their
present large majorities in both houses.
Democrat, also, as everyone expected of
them, claimed they would sharply reduce
the Republican House majority and cap
ture Several seats in the Senate.,
But the public, in-whose. hands, the
result lay, was for the mo! part silent
and in many states too indifferent to
register and thus qualify to vote today.
The ReDublicans conducted a far more
I extensive and well organized campaign
than the Democrats. Both parties clauned
to be hampered by lack of money. With
the Newberry case fresh in the public
mind, candidates and parties were care
ful not to spend money lavishly. It was
also claimed that former source of rev
enue dried up this year becau-e of dis
satisfaction. President Harding and his Cabinet
took the lead in urging the country to
continue the Republicans in control of
Congress as a means of enabling the ad
ministration lo complete its program
Mr. Harding, in a letter to Representa
tive Mondell of Wyoming, who is eek-
ling the scnatorship now held by Senator
Kendnck, virtually appealed to the coun
try for election of a Republican Congress.

peace and disgraceful: that the accom
plishments of the arms conference were
small compared with the task remaining,
and that what was accomplished was
done only through acceptance of Wilson
ian principles of internationalism; that
the tax bill merely transferred the bur
den from big business to little business
and to the taxpayer generally; that the
emergency and permanent tariff bills
were delusions and snares, resulting
mainly in increasing living costs.
Democratic orators also assailed the
Itepublicans fcr seating Truman H.'Jv
Berry as a Senator from Michigan, claim
ing that the G. 0. P. in giving Newberry
his seat admitted that too much money
was spent in his campaign.
WET AD DR QUESTION
t An issue not put on the boards by
cither party nationally aroused more
popular interest than any of the above.
This was lhe wet and dry question. In
three states, Ohio, Massachusetts and
Illinois the people today voted on the
restoration of beer and light wines. In
Missouri and New Jersey the senatorial
contests were admitted to hang on the
wet and dry issue. In Maryland all the
senatorial candidates and most of the
House candidates pledged themselves to
work for modification of the Volstead
law. In New York, Michigan, Washing
ton, Texas and numerous other states the
question entered into congressional cam
paigns more or less direct!).

DISCUSSION GROUPS FORMED
THE RETLBUCAN CLAIMS
The Republicans depended in tli

ments and of the benefits accruing there
from. They stressed these itims in the
Harding program, as entitling them to

Students to Hold Weekly Meetings
to Talk on Topics of Day.
The nucleus of what is expected to de
velop into an organization which will
include the entire student body of the
University into campus discussion
groups, held its first representative
meeting Thursday night at the V. M.
C A. Building, under the direction of
A. R. Elliott, secretary of the Interna
tional Committee of Young Men's
The movement is sweepnig over the
I entire country, taking root in all the
principal colleges and universities," said
Elliott. "Its purpose," he said, "knows
no limitations for good, and in schools
nocic ujc pidii is now in operation, it
has proved an indispensible instrument
for stimulating college spirit and, if
properly conducted, the discussions give
the student a broader knowledge of
questions of belli lotal and national eon
sequence." According to formulated plans it is
proposed that all fraternities shall hold
open discussions on vital questions once
a week. Non fraternity men will hold
similar discussions at the Y. M. C A.
or in their rooming houses. The Rev.
Walter M. Haushalter, pastor of the
Christian Church, has consented to take
over the temiiorary leadership of the I
gers in parts jf Saturday's battle with
the Wildcat', and reviewing the smooth
brand of polish which the Bengal ma
chine took on in lat night's practice, a
spirit of optimism has been infused once
more into the forecasts of the real Mis
souri supporters concerning next Satur
day's clash with the Swners.
It was a saddened but determined
group of Tigers who answered roll call
last night on Rollins Field. With mem
ories of Saturday's hard defeat, a re
newed fight was apparent to the few
spectators who watched the practice.
An experimental new formation was
tried in last night's practice. "Florrie"
Fowler was running the team at quarter,
while Tin" Adams was doing well at
the fullback station. Lincoln and Bond
were in their regular positions in the
Although slowed up by a severe cold.
Roscoe Hill slmwed his teeth at bis wing
position, while Wash was at the other
Iu the rest of the Tiger line. Smith at
center, Bunker and Van Dyne at tack
les, and Lewis and Wertz at guards
seem to be the best bus fcr the starting
line-up against the Oklahomans.
NAcccrding to the scouts who witnessed
Oklahoma's up-ct by the Jayhawkers Sat
urday, the Sooner team appears to be
practically of the same caliber as the
Kanis Aggies. Their line is as usual
inferior to the other Valley lines and
their strength lies in their passing, with
occasional end runs anil off-tackle ilah
ts by their crack backfield.

"It's not pleasant to live in a car all
day and most of the night," said a. local
taxi man. "A taxi driver is up while
everybody else has cither gone home or
is fast asleep. The early morning train
must be met by cars whether any pas
sengers are on it or not. Those who leave
on these trains wait until the last minute
to call a taxi and demand it at once. This
is sometimes unpleasant, especially when
all cars are out and no one knows where
they are or when they will be back.
"A good taxi driver must know more
than just to sit at the wheel and turn his
car to the right or left. He must know
'every street and avenue in town, every
Louse number, every fraternity and sor
ority house. After drrving a taxi for a
number of years or n.onths he learns
people by name and knows just bow
they will get into bis car, how the towns-
man will turn and look fot his home and
wave goodbye to his family before he
steps into the car and settles comfort
ably into the back seat.
If a taxi driver is found dishonest
with his customers, he is discharged at
once, he continued. vvhen people
leave their belongings in the car they are
always returned, if the owner is known.
When the car is loaded with passengers
he must know the best route to take.
"When it is raining there are more
calls to make and that means that a
driver must make better time so he must
know just how to turn corners when cars
are apt to skid and turn over. His life
is one of making pleasure and comfort
for others, but hard work and no pleas
ure for himself.
There are seventy or more service cars
in Columbia and most of them make
from twenty-five to thirty calls a day.
