One of the most important amend
ments on the ballot for the November
election is Amendment No. 1, which
will allow cities to educate children
." years old and young people of more
than 20. It merely gives the cities
the power to do so, it does not re
quire that they do. The expense will
be borne by the city and not by the
This amendment also gies the
Legislature power to authorize school
boards to establish kindergartens
for the children. In this way the
children will be kept off the street
and away from its evil influences and
associates. It means much to the
city people who have small children
and smaller front yards.
Extending the age limit above 20
years is also good. Many people have
been depried of their education ear
lier. They should have a right to be
come better citizens if they wish. It
is for the benefit of the state that they
become better citizens and whatever
benefits the state, benefits everybody
within the state. Let everyone enjoy
the right to go to school to become
a better citizen.

In the interest of the University it
is often well to remind the students
that the institution is theirs. The
thousands that have gone before have
protected it for them, and they must
afford it protection for the thousands
that are to come. This is tradition,
and it is the tradition of college life
that makes the student love his Alma
In this particular year when so
much reconstruction is going on and
within the net few years when we
hope for development in the way of
buildings and grounds let us take
especial care of our campus. There
are many improvements and changes
which require more than a day to
make and they are often such that
they cannot be publicly explained.
Eery student should rest assured
that competent men authorize every
change; that the eyes of the state
are upon the work; and that nothing
will be done other than to further the
ultimate good of the institution.
Often these changes may cause the
students, or even members of the
faculty, inconvenience, but each one
of us must remember that only by co
operation is system maintained. We
should exercise patience in the use
of the campus.
Keep on the walks, do not cut the
corners of the grass or go through
the shrubbery, and do not cross the
parkings on the street.
Probably at no time for the Inst
several years have the lawns of the
University been in as fine condition
as they are this fall, but there seems
to he a decided Iaity on the part of
both men and women of all classes in
the matter of keeping off the lawns.
The funds for maintaining the
grounds are at present sadly inade
quate and it is only by the most care
ful and thoughtful co-operation of the
:!.000 and more persons who uise the
same palhb. Missouri has a beautiful
campus but it is still far behind other
wealthier institutions in this respect.
Therefore, if we wish it to assume
first place in the near future we must
show our pride in the property and
the work going on.
