E ABOUT HATS Dean Waters Says There's No Reason for Going Hatless in Hallways. Members of the faculty of the I'ni-ver-ity of Mi ouri do not agree on the question of the men -tudciit- removing their hats while in the hallways of buildings on the campu-. Here are some opinions of profes-or- in addition to tho-e already puhli-hcd in the L'nivcr--ity Mi ouriau: Prof. 11. .1. Waters, dean of the De partment of Agriculture: "I don't believe there -hould be any more occasion for a man to take oil" hi- hat in a hallway than in a railway -tat ion or any other public building. If it i- a cu-toni at the University of Xebra-Ka it i- a unique one." Dr. E. A. Allen: "I believe it i- a move in the proper direction. I nlwav take olT my hat whenever I enter the lniver-ity of Mi ouri. 1 do not con--ider the University as I do the Union Depot. I think it i- conducive to a higher standard of culture and polite-ne-s for the men to take oil' their hats. I am in faor of the move and think it would be the proper thing for stu dents to do." Dr. W. W. Charter-: "fn all of the iiiiiver-ities that I have ever attended the hats were worn in the halls. Tt i-eon-idered as out of door- in mo-t places. T don't believe it would add anything to the good name of the Uni versity for the students to lemove their hat in the hall-." Judge J. D. Law Miii. dean of the Law Department: "The-e customs general ly accommodate themselves to cir cumstances. I don't think it's usual for men to take ofT their hats in the corridors of public buildings. A large hotel is an example of this where there is a decided distinction made be tween the corridors and halls on the one hand ami the dining room and par lor and even the elevator on the other hand. In a building like our academic hall with no hat room sufficient to ac commodate evcryliody, jand with the student often encumbered with books. I think the balance of convenience will be found on the side of not removing the hat. The matters are the outcome of customs which always follows tin least resistance." CO-ED SHOPPERS' HAVEN GONE No Tea Room Now Where They May Chat Over Ices and Cake. Columbia now has no tea room no place where the University of Missouri eo-eds may meet while down town for a chat over their ices or tea and sand wiches. With the closing of the Wom an's Exchange recently, also came the closing of the tea room, a feature that tends to make shopping a pleasure for women, especially in the large cities. "We depended largely on the college girls for our patronage," Miss Sanders who conducted the exchange said. "We had made the tea room in the old building a very pleasant place. We served ices and cakes. Many college girls came. I heard one girl say she had spent 50 there last spring. But when we moved we lost their patron age." Miss Sanders attributes the failure of the Woman's Exchange chiefly to the move from the building near the Cordon hotel to second floor rooms in the Elvira building.

MOR BABE BOOK FROM SECOND HAND SIOBE Dr. Osier's Gift to M. U. is a Valuable First Edition. NEARLY TEN INCHES THICK 'Father of Human Anatomy," Vesalius, is the Author Wood Cuts Used. The rale book. "l)e Iliimani Corporis Frabrica." prc-ented to the University of Mi ouii recently by Dr. William Osier of Oxford. England, through Dr. W. .1.

The book i- large, heavy, strongly bound and nearly ten inches thick. It is printed entirely in l-itin. A letter fioni Dr. o-ler concerning the work, accompauiid the gift. Dr. O-ler -ay-the author is the "father of human anatoniy"--Ve-aliu-. Ve-aliiw was a young in. in of 2- ytar-. who broke the authoiitv of I aleu. an Italian eit which had swayed the schools for 1.500 year-. Making hi- own di eetion-. describing and drawing what he saw. Vesalius founded the science of anat omy. He embodies his results in this book, the title of which means, "His tory of the Human Body."' The book contains many illustrations. It was one of the first books to use wood cut. Dr. O-ler al-o says in his letter: "I send this volume to the Medical School of the L'niversity of Missouri in recognition of the good work is has done." Dr. Osier was born at Teeumseh. Ont., Canada, in 1S49. He has been professor of medicine at Mc(!ill L'niver sity, professor of clinic medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and pro fessor of medicine at Johns Hopkins. It was here that Dr. Calvert studied un der Dr. O-ler. From Johns Hopkins, Dr. O-ler took a chair in medicine at Ox ford Univer-ity where he is at present. Dr. Osier at one time, it was rejiort cd, advanced a theory that men who reached the age of 40 should be chlo roformed. Dr. Calvert, however, says the statement attributed to Dr. Osier was not made. The book is now in the general libra ry of the University of Missouri. SAVITAR CONTEST ENDS TODAY More Than 100 Poems and Short Stories Were Sent in.

A plan to extend the short course in Agriculture at the L'niversity of Mi ouri to four months and the com plete cour-e to three years will be dis cussed tonight by a committee of fac ulty members of the College of Agri culture. Dean II. J. Waters is chair man of the committee. In speaking of the matter today, Dean Waters said: "W care planning to extend the short course from Xovember to March, the dull months of the farmer's year, and make it possible for the farmer boys who do not deire to take the four-year course to obtain a thorough training in as short a time as possible. An ap propriation of $10,000 has been a-ked for so that we can procure more teach ers and better facilities. That the plan will prove popular was shown by the numlier of students who asked me about it. There is no reason why in a few years we cannot have 800 to 1.000 students enrolled in the short course. It is part of the plan in that case to build separate dormitories for them, so they will be segregated from the other students. T. R. DINES "TENNIS" CABINET Assortment of Guests at the White House.

Holcomb Got the Idea From a Country School Teacher. JEFFERSOX CITY. March 1. Dr. X. It. Holcomb, who introduced the bill for a state Hag for Missouri, received his idea from a country school teacher, one of Dr. Holcomb's constituents. The teacher wrote Dr. Holcomb asking if the state had an oflicial flag. This re sulted in an investigation lieing begun by Holcomb. He found there was no official record of a state flag. He wrote to secretaries of state in states that had adopted oflicial flags and asked for information ugaiding their -fate em blems. With the assistance of Corne lius Roach, secretary of state, and II. A. Oass. state superintendent f -,ub. lie schools, he designed the Hag which is now before the assembly. The pro posed Hag is reproduced upon the copy of the bills which have been printed. The following description of the de sign is printed upon the bill: "The flag of the state of Mi-souri shall be rectangular in shape, the ver- thai width of which shall be to the horizontal length a- two i- to three. It -hall have -i red and live white horizontal -tripe- of eipial width. The union of the Hag -hall be twenty-four five-pointed star-, white in a blue rec tangular field, in the upper left hand corner, ami the lower line ot which -hall be th" bottom line of the -ith stiipe. and the length of which shall be t'ne twelfths the length of the flag. Tin stars -hall be arranged as a border within the blue rectangular field and and outside tin- Oothie letters MO. which shall be white."' The eleven stripes are shown beeaue Mi ouri wa- the eleventh state after the original thirteen to become a mem ber of the Union. The twenty-four stars are sviiiIhiIk of the state's num ber when it was admitted, and the live pointed stars are appropriate with the lank of the state (the fifth) in the Union. The official State Hag bill was sent to engrossment in the House Saturday morning bv a vote of 5t! to 20. POWER IN GRAM OF RADIUM If Properly Applied It Would Kill Every Person in Paris. "One gram of radium would lie suffi cient to destroy every person in Paris if properly applied." was a statement made by Miss Elva Moore in a paper on Kauio-activitv read beiore tne Current Events club at its meeting last Saturday afternoon. She said further, however, that there was not as much as a gram of radium in all the world though it is believed to exist in every form of matter. Radium, she said, is not found in a pure state, but is al ways found in compound. Other subjects di-cu ed at the meet ing were. '-The Initiative and Referen dum.' by Miss Elenora Rcnz: 'Toe's Centenary," by Miss Alice Burnham. and '-The Einmanual Movement,"' by Miss Cleva Cole. CHARITY WORK BY SENIOR LAWS But the Six Students Haven't Defended Any Clients Yet. The six seniors in the Department of Law who organized a club recently to defend unfortunate pri-oners in police court have not tried any case. How ever, they say they have several cacs under consideration. "We want it understood." said Mr. Porter, "that we have not organized, as some seem to think, to see that the negroes get a 'square deal.' He is get ting a square deal now. and I liclicve he always will in Missouri. What we want is the practical experience. If either a negro a white man is unable to pay a lawyer to defend him in court and he desires our services, we will fend him." dc ONE BID FOR SCHOOL BONDS The Time for Receiving Offers for the Issue Expires Tomorrow.

CHOPIN BIRTH DATE DISPUTED Today May Not be 100th Anniversary Some Say. Is today the KMitJi anniversary of the birth of Frederick Francois Chopin?
