is being considered for the position

He will stay over tonight to see the

Mr. Schulte is a big man one who
looks as if he liked being outdoors
and the work of coaching. He is i
graduate of the University of Michi
gan and was chosen as All-Western
guard several years ago. Before he
was assistant coach, Mr. Schulte
coached at the Normal School at Cape
Girardeau. Several men now in the
University were on the teams he
coached there.
Mr. Brewer has nothing definite o
say about the situation in the ath

is one of the few that he has even
said were under consideration.

$25,000,000 YEARLY
Bill to Protect State From
Foreign Bugs Will
Be Asked.
Prof. Haseman Tells of Bene
fits That Would Come
From Law.
Missouri farmers lose about $25,
000,000 each year through destruction
by insects, according to Leonard
Haseman, professor of entomology in
the College of Agriculture and en
tomologist to the experiment sta
tion. The College of Agriculture and the
experiment station are working on an
inspection bill. The object of tais
bill is to protect the state from for
eign insects, and to clean up the in
fested places throughout the state,
thus cutting down the farmers' loss
each year. This bill would use the
same plan as the fertilizer inspection
bill, which prohibits the sale of fer
tilizers' that do not analyze up to
Need 3Ioney to Carr on Work.
".We have been carrying on this
work for fifteen years without any
funds from the legislature," said Pro
fessor Haseman. "Now the time has
come when it is necessary for us to
have an appropriation bo that it will I
be possible for us to carry on tiie
work as it should be. One of the
great needs of our state is a bill of
this kind. All the trees which are
shipped into this state will then be
inspected for injurious insects be
fore coming in. This is the only way
these insects can be kept out. The
United States Department of Agricul
ture has the right to quarantine any
state if infested with insects such as
the brown tail moth.
"The legislature will be asked for
such an appropriation and there is"
no doubt that we will get the money
which will enable us to carry on the
work as it should .be."
Professor Haseman stated that in
sects which arc the most dangerous
are the San Jose scale, brown tail
moth and gypsy moth. These are the
insects that will be dealt with first,
and then, as soon as the value of the
organization is seen by the farmers,
the other insects will be worked on.
Fruit Growers Want Protection.
The large fruit growers are very
anxious for this work to be pushed
forward so that their orchards will
be protected. The small orchardists
do not, as a rule, take any action to
prevent the spread of insects. This
makes it hard on those who spray
their trees, for the insects from an
unsprayed orchard will inigrat to
the sprayed orchard.,
"The brown tail moth Is found in
large numbers In some of the North
ern states," said Professor Haseman.
"This insect is not only injurious to
the fruit but is unheaithful. Its body
Is covered with a very penetrating
substance which comes off and floats
in the air. When this is inhaled it
irritates the lungs and gives the tu
berculosis germ a good chance to get
started. Many cases of this disease
have been traced back to this insect."
The San Jose scale is very injur-
Ions to the peach and apple.

should know how to tell what lie
knows. "I would have a public speak

in this county if I baa my vay alout
it." lie said. "The engineer who
knows how to talk intelligently about
his profession will always come out 1
ahead of the man wno is noi able lo

.Mr. Cooper showed a steie ptl o-i
view- to illustrate his point.
His entire lecture was based on
engineering work and dam construc
tion. Mr. Cooper has built dams in
Brazil, Canada, the United States and
other countries. He showed stereopti
con views of all these works. Begin
ning with pictures of the first rude
water power machinery used in Bra
zil and Japan, he showed the develop
ment of the money saving device down
to the present time. The harnessing
of the .Mississippi will give the great

.Mr. Cooper showed a picture that
gave the first atempt at "damning"
the Mississippi. It was of a man who
had been forced to the roof of his
house by an overflow of the ;reat riv
er. Xo boats were in sight and there
was nothing but water for miles
around him. And too, the man ap
peared very angry. Mr. Cooper said
that this was probably not the only
time that a similar attempt had been

Tigers Will Meet Strong Opponents
Tonight Other Games.
The Kansas "Aggies" defeated ::.
U. twice on the latter's floor. This
fact alone shows that the "Aggies"
have one of the strongest teams in
this part of the country. Kansas has
exactly the same team that won the
conference championship last year,
and also has the reputation of being
practically unbeatable on its own floor.
The "Aggies" won Tuesday night by
a score of 39 to 21 and on Wednesday
night by 27 to 25. Since, according to
C I.. Brewer, a team must be at least
twenty points better than Kansas to
beat them on their own floor, the win
ners must have a very strong team.

efficiency of girl messengers in Oma

ployed as messengers are apt to be
of the worst element, but in the small
town like Columbia, the boys are of
good families and render good ser
vice," he said today. "I would not do
away with the boy service but would
add a girl to the service because
there are a few calls that a girl could
more easily attend to than a boy. Our
present messenger service has proved
a success although the business is
comparatively light."
Mr. Raum has received a letter from

The large number of failures is
explained as due to the heavy work
of these grades. There are only
seven grades before the high school
is reached. So the Columbia public
schools do eight years of work in
seven. This additional work conies
in the fifth, sixth and seventh grades.
The same system of grading is
used in the grades and high school
as that used in the University. The
process of elimination is not the
same. The University system of
grading was adopted In 1909.
Rut Christian and Stephens Colleges
Will Hate Basketball Teams.
The girls in Christian College and
Stephens College are enthusiastic
over basketball. Although both are
developing good teams they do not ex
pect to lilay match games, the only
exception being that the Stephens
girls may meet the team from HowarJ
Payne College some time this season.
The Stephens College girls have no
athletic director this year, but they
have raised a fund by subscription
and sandwich sale to pay for a coach.
Prof. C. L. Brewer has promised to
pick out a competent man from among
the University boys to coach them
and they hope to have several practice
games with the girls' class teams of
the University some time this winter.
The two Christian College teams.
the senior-sophomore and the junior
freshman, will play a game In about
two weeks. On these teams are
three or four good plajera who have
taken part in match games In other
'schools. No match games will be

Miss Montomery then spoke of the
