There Is little excuse for students
asking merchants for credit. It Is as
sumed that anyone attending school
away from home has arranged for his
support either by his own efforts or
from some other source. Then the
only use for the money he receives is
to pay for the commodities and ser
vices which he needs.
The man asking for time Is usually
the one who Is living beyond his
means. He is tbe man who has more
in his show window than he has In
stock. He may have a $30-a-month al
lowance but he wants it to. look like
$60. He pays cash for the gay time
but lets the clothing man wait
Credit makes extravagance possible.
It encourages dishonesty. When a
thing is paid for when purchased, the
buyer has a strong stimulus to be
economical and buy only what is real
ly needed. He has parted with his
money so that he is better able io
appreciate the value of what comes
into his possession. But best of all,
he has the consciousness that he real
ly owns what he has because he has
paid for it
Some men seek credit then credit
seeks them through its undaunted
agent the bill collector., He re
pulses this man with statements that
he expects a check tomorrow. But he
doesn't at all, for he knows well that
he will not get any money from home
for two weeks. The credit asker loses
his respect by becoming a man-fearing
bill dodger. He loses his Integ
rity by protecting himself behind lies
and false excuses. Correct moral
perspective is lost by taking from
others dishonestly in order to keep up
his show.
Before a man asks the merchant for
credit, he should ask himself what
the reasons are. On such an analysis
he will be surprised how few worthy
excuses he can turn up.
Again Missouri has broken into
''Big Nine" company. The football
game with Illinois which has been
practically decided upon means a big
advance for Tiger athletics. The
track meet with Illinois last spring
and the one arranged with Minne
sota this season gives assurance that
Missouri will continue permanently
on the calling list of these athletically
prominent schools.
Recognition by members of the
"Big Nine" conference cannot fail to
help the University. These schools
are bigger and wealthier than those
In the Missouri Valley Conference, and
a few games with them every season
will do much to help Missouri's repu
tation with the public.

There are- two ways to keep your
boy and your neighbor's boy from
fighting over, tbe ragged piece of lawn,
between the two yards which neither
of them wanta to mow.
One way Is to argue with tbe boys
about It; to tell them that it is fool
ish and wicked to fight, and that fight
ing doesnt really settle the question
as to whose duty it Is to care for
that few inches of grass. Another
way Is for you to take the boys to
the corner drug store, buy them both
strawberry Ice cream sodas, and get
them started about baseball. Then
take them back home. They will be
so busy discussing the game that they
won't stop to quarrel over a. grass
plot now. Working together, they
will have It all mowed before either
you or they realize it And If they
should discover that they have a com
mon league hero they might even
vie with one another to see which
can mow the most grass on tbe form
erly disputed section.
The Peace Movement
The same methods may be applied
to keep nations from fighting. We
hear much of the Peace Movement
these days. Those who are devoting
their entire time to the promotion of
the cause of universal peace recog

In creating feelings of friendship be
tween two nations when the young
men of one country go to another for
an education. That great thinker,
Cecil Rhodes, was one of the first to
recognize this practically. The same
Idea which resulted In the founding
of the Rhodes Scholarships has an
other expression In the Increasing Im
portance which is being attached to
the student movement as the Cosmo
politan Clubs. i
The American Association for Inter
national Conciliation recognizes the
latent power of ehtae clubs. It
sees the promise for the future, when
young men from various nations,
studying in the colleges and univer
sities of a democracy, form organiza
tions for the promotion of understand
ing and fellowship among themselves,
and Include also as members,, such
Americans as have caught the Idea
of a democracy among nations' as well
as among individuals.
Along with the publications' on the
advisability of .universal peace, and
the practical prevention of. war, sent
out by this Association for Interna
tional Conciliation, they' Include a bul

for any university. The students
who have come here from other
lands came because they found that
this university offered better advan

of them will stay In America when

others will return to their own

"This advertising is not meant to
be merely spasmodic, but a systematic
regular thing. Each month in the
school year, every member of the
club is asked to send this news letter
of information about the University
and the state, to his former home.
In addition to this he is asked to
send at least five clippings or marked
copies of the University paper, the
Missourian, to individuals who would
be interested, and to the newspapers
where he has lived, with the request
that the papers copy, or comment on
some of the articles marked.

of more coat raoka In the corridors
of Academic Hall. When disagreeable
weather demands the wearing of over
coats and wraps, there is no room for
them on the racks in front of the
library entrance. The hooks are
speedily filled and the students who
come late must pile their overcoats

The need of more coat and hat
