A friend of the late Frank A. Faxon ; Joh. pau, Jones the worfd famoug
of Kansas City once said to him. after track man. was recently elected pres
lcarning that he contributed to most ident of the senior class at Cornell

and was conceded the olhce a soon

Thursday the Commercial Club
again began the practice of meeting
at luncheon once a week. The value
of the Thursday luncheon to tlie com
munity is great. More and more per
sons are learning the value of co
operation and of the waste of indi
vidual effort. Only when a commun
ity learns to unife can the highest
development be obtained.
Tinted we stand; divided we fall,"
is as true today as it ever was. In
other words, a community to grow,
thrive and be healthy must have the
united efforts of her citizens. And
this getting together each Thursday
at luncheon of the leading business
men of this city to talk over the needs
of the community is a uniting on the
common interests. It is a good place
to develop fellowship and brotherly
lo.e. Without these things men will
not very well co-operate.
The coining of Baroness von Sutt
ner is not the first entrance of Euro
pean royalty into Columbia. Xoble
representatives of many foreign
houses have been here. Hut perhaps
no royal representative visiting this
country llas heen of so much real ser
vice to humanity as has the Baroness.
Baroness von Suttner has warrior
blood in her veins. Notwithstanding
this, she has forcsaken all the hon
ors of royal ligc and given her ef
forts to the cause of world-wide
peace. From her pen has come tlie
text book of tlie movement, "Lay
Down Your Arms." Hundreds of
magazine articles in a half-dozen lan
guages have been written by her to
spread the gospel of peace around the
world. Truly she is "The World
Peace Priestess."
Columbia will be highly honored by
her visit. She will come to lecture
on peace, a subject of vital interest
(o every man and woman. Let us
hope that the impression she carries
away will be that of high citizenship
in a republic.
Pierre I.oti. the French author and
orientalist, is baffled at the ways of
Americans. He dislikes the I'nited
States because it is destructive of the
past. He looks with regret at the
way we wiped out of our existence
our aboriginal pnst. He can see no
beauty or grandeur in our present.
Ho deems it eabier to assume the
state of being an orientalist than a
Yankee. These views he set forth
the other day in New York where he
came to witness the production of a
play written by himcslf.
But it is not hard to appreciate this
viewpoint when we consider that I-Oti
has lived for sixty years in almost
complete retirement from the world.
The quiet of his French villa was not
conducive to modern thought. His
service of many years in the navy
did not interfere with his dreams of
the past. It is of course impossible
for a man whose guiding principle is
the dead past and who regards this
a dead present to appreciate the no
bility of the present.
I.oti is living behind the times. In
the hustle and bustle of the busy
world he is the Rip Van Winkle of
fiction. His dreams are of the prim
itive past. Tlie worth-while man of
today is a dreamer, too, but his
dreams are for the future. He can
enjoy the present, profit by the past c
and provide for the future.
The students of the University of
Missouri embody the new philosophy
of life which looks to the future and
which is constructive; this is the
citizen, doesnt it:

"If he who In nlwayn Iinril up. will but

The point is this, we
do not realize the leaks in
our spending. The
is the one we have all been looking
for. It makes the keeping of a
record of expenditures really a
pleasure. Its pages are large and
frank and easy to write on.
You have absolutely nothing to do but put down
a few figures. There is a column for every expense
item that enters into a student's life. There is a line
for every day in the year. At the end of each month
you know just what you have spent on the different
classifications of things you buy, you know total ex
penses and receipts. At the end of the year all is
summed up.
You simply must sec this book. Its cost is only 25 cents,
