Running a cafeteria for the stu
dents of the University of Missouri is
the job that Stanley Sisson, the man
ager of the I'niversity Dining Club,
has undertaken. Two years ago the
down' stairs dining room was put in
Lathroji Hall, anticipating a growth
of the U. D. Club. But it was never
used. Last jear Mr. Sisson tried the
plan of running a branch of the club
at a slightly higher price of board in
that room, but the men did not seem
to want that. The cafeteria is an ex
periment in catering to the student
appetite, and it uses the downstairs
dining room, too.
The same kitchen force that is used
for the l. D. Club prepares the food
for the cafeteria, but down there an
extra set of service men is needed.
They work in two shifts of forty-five
minutes each, ten men to each shift.
One man takes care of the fruits, an
other the drinks, another checks up
the orders and the rest take and fill
orders. '
come and try the cafeteria. lie is
sure they will like it. Those who
have eaten there liked it. He says
the girls seem to be afraid of the
boys. 1 nree young women came as i
Jar as the door one noon, but backed
out when they saw so many men j
there. Mr. Sisson is making a spe
cial effort to give the I'niversity
women the advantages of the cafe
teria. The tables are to be made
smaller, for four, so that a small
roup of girls can have a table to
themselves. He thinks that the best
plan would be for some of the men
to come with them the first time and
show them how tiie cafeteria works.
The Y. W. C. A. runs three cafeterias
in St. Louis for the shop girls, and
Mr. Sisson thinks that the University
women should have the privilege of
this cafeteria as much as the men.
The cafeteria is permanent as
long as it pays. If the number of
boarders should be lowered until it
was no longer profitable to run the
cafeteria, then it would be abandoned.
But Mr. Sisson thinks that it is going
to keep on through the year, and that
it has a definite place among the Uni
versity students. Dr. W. W. Charters,
director of the Summer Session, is
desirous that the cafeteria be run
during the summer as well. That is
to be decided later.
Shortest Event Here Was
35 Minute Affair
in 1908.
The custom among all colleges of
holding an annual class contest at
the beginning of the school year is
comparatively old, having been in
vogue in many of the older colleges
during the eighteenth century.
So widely has the custom spread
that there is hardly a college in ex
istence today in which this annual
event does not occur in some form or
In the University of Missouri, how
ever, the practice did not come into
use until about ten years ago. At
that time it came into existence as
the result of a series of personal en
counters between members of the
freshman and sophomore classes and
has since been allowed to exist as the
most legitimate means of settling the
natural rivalry between these two

entrance to the quadrangle played an
important part, for upon it the flag

usually refereed bv the members of
the junior and senior classes, who
saw to it that each side got a square
deal. After the contest the field
marshal or some other of the upper
classmen made a short speech, in
vvlr'ch he declared hazing off for the
At various times other forms of
class contests have been substituted
for the old flag rush. In 1003, for in
stance, so much bitter feeling had
previously existed between the two
classes that it was deemed unsafe to
allow them to meet in the usual flag
rush and a class track meet was sub
stituted instead. Other methods
which have been used here are the
bag rush, in which large wheat bags
stuffed with sawdust are used, and
the roping contest which was used
for the first time this year.
Perhaps the shortest flag rush ever
held here was the one in 190S, in
which only thirty-four minutes was
required for the freshmen to take
down the flag. This contest was re
markable for another thing, it
