That Plus Over-Confidence
Equalled Missouri Defeat
Says T. E. Jones.
jTt. Courteous-Treatment at-'Law-
rence the Report of "'
-'- Columbians.
"The Minnesota Shift beat us," said
T. E. Jones, instructor in athletics and
trainer of the Tiger football team this
morning. "Our backs played splendid
football. The shift confused the line
men and caused them to hesitate in
charging. The two Kansas tackles
w were the strongest of any team we
have met this year.
"There was an unconscious over
confidence on the Missouri side. The
team had it. The student body had it.
If Kansas had scored first instead of
the Tigers, it would have been better
for our team."
Those few words from Mr. Jones
explain the coaches' views of the
Kansas victory Saturday. ,
LeMire, captain of the team, is vis
iting in Kansas City. Prof. C. L.
Brewer has not yet returned from
Kansas City. He will be in atfl to
night or tomorrow morning. The team
attended the f"ROse Maid" at the
Willis Wood 'Saturday night About
half of them stayed over or went
home for a brief visit,
Mr. Jones spoke very highly,? of the
ft' courteous treatment of Missouri, and
all the returning "rooters sounded the
praises or Kansas hospitality. Their
slogan was "Welcome Missouri." Last
year at Columbia they were greeted
( with "Beat KansaB".
"I didn't see a display of Kansas
colors without an equal display of
i" Missouri colors In Lawrence Satur
day," said J. L. Stephens today.- Ac-
cording to Mr. Stephens and W. W.
Garth, Jr., Kansas hospitality was
perfect Both men were impressed

While in the University Mr. Wong
took much work in the department "of
sociology and says he is now sorry
that he did not take more. In a letter
to the Missourian, he says:
"When I was at the University some
students were talking of having a de
sire to become medical missionaries
to China. I wonder if there is still
some one thinking of being such a
person. The government does not ap
propriate any money for a physician
or a chaplain in these institutions
(eleemosynary). If American medi
cal missionaries from Missouri are
coming to China, I certainly wish one
of them would come to Canton and
attach himself to my office."
Mr. Wong has not forsaken journal
ism. He is correspondent in China of
the Associated Newspapers in the
United States. He received his de

Vaccination as a preventive of
typhoid fever is now a success, ac

fessor of preventive medicine in the
University of Missouri. It has been
thoroughly tried in several armies

typhoid fever 90 per cent
The University- Missourian has re

traveling salesman who sells hard
ware In Missouri., Nebraska, Kansas,
Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, re

M. P. Welnbnch to Tell How Current
Has Aided Man's Progress.
The many ways electricity has been
generated and controlled for the ben
efit of man will be discussed by M. P.
Weinbach of the School of Engineer
ing at the general meeting of the
Scientific Association in the physics
lecture room at 7:30 o'clock tonight.
Mr. Weinbach will pay particular
attention to the application of elec
tricity in the science of medicine. He
will point out the great advance of
civilization which has resulted from
its application for motive power and
light and sound transmission. The
talk will show that the wide use ofi
electricity today is due to its ease of
control, accuracy of measurement and
the economy of changing it into
other forms of energy.
The lecture will not be technical.
It Is prepared not for electrical en

Commissioners Start Wor k
on Cross-State Highway
in Boone County.
J. A. Hudson Will Investi
gate Surface Materials
in Chicago.
The first work of building a perma
nent hard surface for the cross-state
highway began in Boone County to
day. The read commissioners have
started to graded the Rocheport
gravel road for a distance of three
miles west of the city limits. This
fall this strip of road will be ditched,
graded and crowned ready for a hard
surface next summer.
"We expect to grade the road this
winter and surface it next summer,"
said J. A. Hudson, chairman of the
special district road commissioners,
this morning. "The reason for wait
ing is that we want the surface to
become thoroughly packed and smooth
before spreading on the gravel and
asphalt. It is not settled, however,
that we will use the gravel-asphalt.
But that Is the best thing. It seems,
that we can find at this time.
"I expect to go to Chicago soon and
investigate the merits of this aftpWUt
road and other materials. If t "flnil
anything 'that the commissioners
think is better than" this, we will give
it a trial."
Gasoline Power Grader Used.
The old bed Is being used in making
this road. Thar hed' was built about
forty-five years ago and is in very- bad
condition now. A gasoline power
grader is at work straightening up the
crown and making ditches where nec
essary. The road when finished will
be wide enough for two vehicles and
is expected to be as smooth and fine
for automobiliag .as any city street
Since aboTit August the' commission
ers, in addition to keeping many other
roads in repair and in a passable con
dition, has graded, widened and put
into condition for a hard surface
about ten miles of Boone County
The wofk3has Just been finished on
Providence1 R"oa'u"'and -this highway,
formerly one of the worst roads in
thePfcounty, is now as'sSfdoth and hard
as pavement "Another force Is at
work on the lower 'end of the McBaine
road and this Bectfon will probably be
finished this weekt '
Much work yet remains to be done
iii'&"e district, but," according to" the
plans of the commission, all the main
roads of the 'district will be put in
shape by the close of next year.
BnildiBg Calverts Is First, Work.
The first thing to be done In road"
building is to put in culverts where
they are needed, the commissioners'
say. In the special district these cul
verts are built of concrete and large
enough to take care of all the surplus
water. A little more than 1300 has
been spent in the district so far is
building bridges and culverts. After
the culverts have been put In, the low
places are filled up and the entire
road-bed graded to a height of two
feet or more and rounded at the top
to shed the water. The grading and
ditching is all done with a large
grader pulled by a motor. After the
road is graded to the proper height
the dirt is packed down with a heavy
steel roller, the rolling process being
repeated every two or three weeks
until the bed becomes solid.
"In five years from now," said J. A.
Hudson, "we will have good roads
radiating twenty-five miles in every
direction as a result of the work be
gun In the Columbia district"
Columbia Is Center of District
The special district, which is in the
form of a circle, with Columbia at al
most the exact center, is eight miles
across and contains about 120 miles
of roads. Bonds to the amount of
$100,000 were first issued to furnish
money for carrying on the work. The
bonds were sold last October and are
held by a St. Louis firm.
The actual work of road building in
the Columbia district Is done chiefly
with an engine, roller, teams and
graders. Eleven teams are in use at
present in the district, the forces be
ing divided into gangs of three teams
Pictures of American Sculptsre Work
