is going to Florida next week. The '
wintprs of Missouri are too cold for
biln gQ be ays, and he is going to
Palm Beach where the sun snines
warm in winter as well as in sum
mer. Although Mr. Koch has lived in
Missouri all his life, the last ten years
in Columbia, he says he can't stand
the below-zero weather common here
last winter. He doesn't claim to be
a weather prophet, but says it will
be cold again this winter despite the
fact that the wild geese are lincerine
in the north. So just as soon as ho
can sell his furniture he will depart
for the sunny south.
Mr. Koch is going to Florida, pri
marily to fish, eat oranges and keep
warm. He has boon there before and
says fishing is fine. Fishermen there

Although there is no longer anv
contest for a state song, no loncer
any committee, no longer any prize,
manuscripts continue to come in to
Prof. W. II. Pommor. who was chair
man of the committee.
The contest is a closed incident, so
far as the state is concerned, in spite
of the fact that no prize was awarded,
yet the public refuses to accept it as
such, and a dozen or more manu
scripts have already ben submitted
since the decision was announced,
and Professor Pommer sees no pros
neets of n discontinuance.
About throe weeks ago the commit-
tee announced that, in its opinion, no
music submitted fulfilled the re'iuiro
inents of the contest: therefore the
prize could not be awarded. Honor
able mention was given to four men
and. a sum of money, about ST.". to
each, for the trouble they had taken.
Honorable mention and $.".00 was
civen to Mrs. L. C. Hull for words
she had written.

"American art is only 20 years old.
i yet it now ranks ahead of all other
countries." said George Julian Zolnay
last night in his lecture on "The De
velopment of American Art."
'Especially is this true of American
,.... he said, "beginning even
with the work of Rogers, the earliest
great sculptor of this country, who
reflected the spirit of the MS and was
a true interpreter of his own time and
Mr. Zolnay pointed out that Ameri
can sculptors have advantages over
foreigners in that their work is better
received by their countrymen and they
have more range of subjects. Besides,
one of them does as much work in a
veir as a foreign sculptor usually does
in a lifetime, he says. American art
ists have healthy minds, originality,
sincerity and strength. They produce
bold works with the daring of abso
lute conviction.
Mr. Zolnay's recent works were
, shown and interpreted, especially the
New Bedford monument upon which
ihe author is still rn. and .

about which there has been so much
Mr. Zolnay said in regard to "at
mosphore" that it Is a thing that any
true artist can get at home. Up makes
his own atmosphere. Several Ameri
cans who have lived abroad have lost
thoir ability to represent American
idas. They have not the American
atmosphere, he said. He also pointed
out the difference between a monu
mental work one that is to bo for all
etornitv and work that is purely doco
ra'ive. At the conclusion of the lecture. Dr.
John Pickard announced that the
scale reproduction of the Lacb-de
