The first step toward anew HO.MK is the selection
of a lot. It is a thousand times more satisfactory to have
tins lot located in a strictly HOME community, where the
lots are large and beautiful, and where the personality of
the community is satisfactory to yon.
In practically every city throughout the country the
better class of people have gone out into exclusive com
munities and built their HOME. Why not in Columbia?
Why not you?
If you are interested in building a HOME, let me
know about it, and I will give you prices and terms that
will be of interest to you.
Lot$ in Westmount and Westwood are not only
better, but they are decidedly cheaper, especially when
you take the size of the lot and the location into consideration.
Let's talk it over.

Comparing the United States In very
unfavorable terms with South Amer
ica, and aiming to point out the de
lusion which the people of this coun
try have that their nation Is superior
of all other nations is the reason
which the author of a book, "The Oth

Is Chas Grandpierre, world traveler,
writer and former student of the Uni
Some months ago Grandpierre was
sent to South America by a paper of
this country to write articles about
that country, but the reports which
he sent back here were so radical and
more a criticism of this country than
anything else that the paper refused
to print them. As a consequence of
the papers' refusal to accept the
articles, Grandpierre, once a printe!
employed on the Columbia Herald,
published them in the form of a book.
while on his return to this country.
This book is probably the first book
ever printed on board ship while at
sea. Only two hundred copies were
printed. They were given away but
arc not allowed to be sold. Prof. M.
F. Miller has received a copy.
The book describes practically ev
ery form of human endeavor in South
America and compares them with
those of this country, mostly unfav
orably to this country. There are
discussions on cities, racial character
istics, architecture, education, amuse
ments, government and the last chap
ter is on the Monroe Doctrine as
South Americans think we try to use
Here is what he says about Buenos
"Buenos Aires has more and larger
dailies than Xew York, the finest news
paper building and the most luxurious
club house In the world; the most ex
pensive dock system on this hemis
phere; four banks with more paid in
capital and greater reserves than any
four in the United States, and its peo
ple wear more damonds than are in
any other city in the world."
The book states that chewing gum
is an unknown article to South Amer
"A Yankee, the people of this coun
try are spoken of as Yankees, who
chews it there is regarded as crazy or
afflicted with a nervous ailment," he
says. ".Motion picture theatres some
times have this sign: 'No North
American Films Are Shown Here.'
Films from this country are not re
garded as of high enough stancarc.
A Yankee who started a store in one
of the cities advertised articles with
prices similar to 59 ' cents and the
people refused to trade with him be
cause they thought he was a liar.
Hobble skirts are worn considerably
by the women there as these costumes
are more suited to the graceful walk
of the South American woman than
to the walk of the northern woman."
Women of Argentine, according to
the book, are far more cultured and
refined than those of North America
and their standard of education is
high. They do not believe In woman
suffrage and hold an exalted position
in the home.
"There is no necessity for prohibi
tion in that country as the people do
not drink to excess," he says. How
ever they have a strong prejudice
against pure water and invariably di
lute it with some alcoholic drink.
They believe their people are more
robust than those of the north on that
Education is of a much higher stand
ard. It requires a greater prepara
tion to enter a university there and
the requirements to obtain a profes

First Practice Will Be
Xext Week.
The first baseball practice of the
season will start next week. It will
be held in the gymnasium if the
weather conditions do not permit out

pitchers and catchers was held in
the gymnasium last night.
Practically all of last year's squad
will try out for the team this year.
Coach O. F. Field says that the fresh
man material is promising this season.
"Wo want all the baseball players
to come out this year," he said.
"Plenty of good men never try out for
the team mainly because they don't be

men will get a fair try-out as soon
as the weather permits outside prac
C. L. Angerer has decided to stay
here the next semester and he will
add strength to the team. He is con
sidered the best pitcher in the Mis
souri Valley Conference. Hall, Moh-
Icr, Graham, Lansing and Delano will

ising material and the question of his
eligibility will be settled this se
mester. Angerer, Helm, Helmreich of
last year's team and Capp of the
freshman squad will try out for pitch
ers. The infield candidates are Brain-
ard, Hornback, McCue, Carter, Hous
ton, Wheat, I.yle. Woolsey, Barclay
