After Thoughts on Journalism Week -OUR" STORE. When you hear a young man who is employed by some business concern say our store or our omce. It Is a sure sign that the boy is working for the best Interests of his employer. The boy who manages to get to work at the appointed time and watch es the clock for thirty minutes before time to quit, never says "our" busi ness. And it is a sure sign his mind is somewhere else rather than on his work. He will never bo anything more than an employe. His chances of advancement are small. The boy who feels that his work is part of him and that the business is partly his will keep on going up. (This is what E. R. Schauffler, edi tor of "Missouri Notes" in the Kan sas City Times, thinks of Columbia.) Journalism Week at Columbia is over, we have dusted the cobwebs from the sanctum and are back on the job once more. We have snatched pearls of wisdom as they fell from the lips of the mighty, have smoked and chattered with a lot of the fellows who make this column possible and have studied carefully by moonlight the matter of coeducation. It Is all fine business and the Hon. Walter Williams deserves a vote of thanks from every newspaper man In the state. Also, the good dean and the people of Columbia and the University are certainly experts in the matter of true hospitality. No newspaper man or politician, even, for that matter- came to Columbia and failed to re ceive the utmost courtesy and enter tainment. There were ball games, motor rides and dinners strung along to break the monotony of too much improving advice, and there was a cor dial glad hand for everybody, men. women and politicians NKER OF PURE .MEXTAL FOOD. A significant fact was pointed out by the Rev. Henry P. Cope of Chi cago a few days ago when he said: "We need a careful guarding of the whole range of mental food, more strict than that maintained at the kitchen door." The foundation for mental disease, like that of physical defects, is laid early in life. The mind of the child is often poisoned by constant associa tion with immoral companions or by unwholesome reading. The young minds are especially susceptible to outside influences and such impress ions easily become a part of the character. Every child should have at its dis posal plenty of good books and mag azines. A well-selected library should dc in every scuooi-room and every home and the child encouraged to read as soon as it is old enough. Parents cannot be too careful of the associates of their children. Most children can be taught to seek only the best companions and to avoid those of a vicious disposition. Many more people are victims of mental dyspepsia than of the physi cal sort. It is more serious since it affects not only the individual but may bo a menace to all with whom be comes in contact. Col. J. West Goodwin and the fa mous beaver hat were very much on the job all week and everybody was mighty glad to see 'em. There was always a gang around the colonel, begging for stories of the old Sedalia Bazoo, and generally getting them. Colonel Goodwin was distinctly a headliner, as the theatrical folk have it. If you want to start something with the good wife, just quote her a few of the remarks that Mrs. Sarah Tyson Rorer of Philadelphia, special writer on cookery, had to offer at Columbia. Mrs. Rorer says keeping house is the easiest job in the world. Why, shucks! says she, after a hard day's work she comes home and tosses off the housekeeping In three-quarters of an hour, just like that. Nothing to It. Mr Rorer's remarks were punctuat ed by snorts of suppressed scorn and rage from the women journalists and housewives of Columbia who heard her. it. Look at that fellow Adam and his rib. Eve. Styles didn't worry them, no matter which way the wind blew. And then you never heard of Jonah leaving his supper so that he might beat some one to the chair to get his hair trimmed before attending a dance. He felt sure that it made very little difference to the whale whether he wore a 'feather-edge' or a 'german-round hair-cut on the yatching party. Now, when old man Sklnclothes decided to make an after noon call on Miss String O'Beads in the good old days at Cliffville, he didn't have to interview a tonsorial artist in regard to his appearance. Yes, it's awful, the grasp the bar bers have on us." "That's about right," said the man next to him as he laid down the barber shop copy of the Police Ga zette. "The barbers certainly do die tate to us. Did you ever stop to think about the many different styles in hair-cuts? In fact, they are charac teristics of types. Now for instance, just imagine attending a musical con cert where the main character wa3 bald-headed. You would demand your money back, crying to the heavens that you were defrauded. Or think for a moment of a moving picture hero rushing forward at the critical moment and rescuing the beautiful Belinda from the clutches of the vil lian. What if the hero did not have long, wavy, curly, chestunt hair for the heroine to pat as the Aim ends. Then again, imagine the weak broth er of the play, usually an escaped con vict, wearing anything but the style which is so universally popular at jails and other hotels of that nature. You can't do it," The Pirate Style. "Right you are," returned the first waiter. "I had never thought of that, but it's so. Just because they say Ovid Bell of the Fulton Gazette ar rived In Columbia "a little disabled but still in the ring." A train started too soon and he was thrown and shaken so that he had to get about the campus on crutches. But he kept on grinning. According to Mitchell White of Mex ico, who usually tells the truth, it was a Missouri woman who Invented the slogan, "Hasn't scratched yet." Referring, you know, not to a Mis souri Democrat, but to a variety of soap powder. And the Missouri wo man got only 25 for a cry that has brought the soap people hundreds of thousands of dollars, Mitchell says PUBLIC WELFARE. Interest in the Kansas City Board of Public Welfare has been created here through an explanation of the work by L. A. Halbert, superintendent of the board, in a lecture at the Univer sity Assembly. Social workers rec ognize the welfare board as a novel yet competent method of dealing with many municipal problems. The Idea of a legal aid department and welfare loan agency might well be applied in a community like Colum bia. Small claims could often be ad Justed if an attorney could be had free of charge to the person who is unable to pay for one, A debt of a dollar means much to a poor person. The free legal aid bureau of Kansas City goes after small claims just as earnestly as it does after large ones. The municipal loan agency furnishes honest poor people emergency relief H. F. McDougal, the able city editor of the Maryville Tribune, got away from the home town this week for the first time in eighteen months. He says he saw a lot of quaint sights In Columbia, among which was a w. k. bank president tethering his cow on the courthouse lawn and then proceed ing blandly to his place of business. And yet they say there ain't no priv ileged classes! old 'Cap' Kid wore his hair hanging down on his shoulders, a pirate who did not wear his the same way would he no more feared than the little comic-opera war which was held recently in Mexico. And along this line, of course, one wonders who was the first doctor to allow his hair to effervesce down over his face until it reached a point two inches below his chin. Up to a short time ago a man couldn't be a doctor unless he fol lowed this fashion." The conversation ended as the first speaker went to his vivisection in the third chair. The other reclined his head and reflected over what had been said. He had never thought much about hair-cut styles of wearing the hair, either with the male or the fe male of the species. In fact, he had merely taken his regular afternoon each month as it came, and borne it much the same as he would the one spent in the chair of the family den tist. It was something which had to be done for the betterment of all, so the sooner done the better. He usually went down after dinner and got a good comfortable seat near a window where he could look out and see all that went by. Then he would begin a systematic reading of all the sporting publications in which the shop abounded. He closely examined the vaudeville magazines and their pictures until the laziness of the after noon caused him to become drowsy. A half hour's sleep and he would awaken for his treatment at the hands :l i . ...... t t . ..,- ..-, 01 an inaiviauai wno roacnea ins iiair and looked as though he would like to let his razor slip neckward. Now as the barber cuts away, the mind of the man in the chair moves from the vicinity of the unpleasant activities. He begins to think of the customs and styles of hair cutting of the past and present, not only in his own land but In others. As They Do la Russia. A friend of his who had traveled a great deal had told him of the customs in Russia, He said that when the young girls were married they shaved their hair off and wore a wig from that time on. The idea was the destruction of their charms now that they had found husbands. He remembered that his friend had fail ed to say what means they resorted to in order to hold their husbands after the loss of their charms. Then he remembered the story of the Fi jian women who also shaved their heads, but whose husbands spent much time in growing a luxuriant mass of hair. Then, too, the Koreans, who begin at the age of seven to cultivate a topknot which in later life they hold sacred and to which they pin their faith and high crown hats. Somewhat like them are the Chinese, who in order to be pe-que-liar, let their hair grow from one small spot to form a pigtail that dangles down the back. Then he remembered the pictures of Gorge Washington that hung in the little country school house to which the teacher always pointed for an aid In teaching the lessons of truthfulness. How he used to admire him in his striking pose as he looked across the ice-choked Delaware. How he wondered at his white fluffy hair which he plaited just like Sallie Hawkins'. Then one day he learned of this great man's deception. He wore a wig. His hero crumbled and lay in a heap. What man could lead an army and wear a wig? What man could be truthful? Ho knew old Squire Dobbs wore a wig, because he had let a hook-and-line down and caught it once when the Squire was out the, window as the barber laishes putting the soap all over his face and on one eye. Naturally his girl passes with the meanest fellow in school. He attempts to rise out of his chair, but the barber's grip is death like and he writhes as the couple pass on laughing. From now on he does not care if the razor does slip. Then comes the powder, a dab here, a dab there and all is through. No, not yet, another and final dab of powder and the artist stands off and frowns at his quivering subject. He turns the chair around so he may see himself in the glass. The barber asks if it is all right The man in the chair is well satisfied, fearing that another attack will ensue. He takes his collar from the boy and rushes out The trying ordeal is over; he has conformed to the customs and styles by having his hair cut He is now happy, but oh, how he longs for his boyhood days when his hair protruded through the top of a rusty straw hat, and he did not care how far it protruded.

He knew how much story telling it took on his part, his sister's part, his mother's .part and the rest of the family's part in order to fix things up so that the old Squire would not close down the mortgage. So if George Washington wore a wig, and knowing the story telling that wigs cause, he was ever afterward a bit skeptical about the cheery tree incident. A Strip la The Ear. He was aroused from his reverie by a pain In the ear; the long scis sors had snapped too far. He winced. but let It pass. It was merely an other of the happenings of the after noon. "My, aren't women lucky," he thinks. "They do not have to go through this ordeal. I w,ish I was so bald that I would have a debate with myself each morning just how far I should wash my face in order not to give myself a shampoo."

"Missionary work today offers a wonderful life opportunity to young men of the University who are prepar ing themselves for work In education and the practice of medicine," said J. W. Lowe, a missionary of Laichowfu, China, before he caught a train out of Columbia Wednesday. Mr. Lowe de livered an address to the young women of Stephens College Tuesday and in spspired four volunteers for foreign missionary work. Mr. Lowe, accompanied by Mrs. Lowe, Is visiting colleges throughout the United States, and especially in Missouri, in the interest of foreign missionary work. He has been a mis sionary in Northern China all his life. He is on his way today to Lexington, Mo., where he will address the young women students of Central College. There have been 2,000 additions to Mr. Lowe's church in China in the last two years, more than in the first fifty years of missionary effort in that country. He believes China is in the midst of a great awakening, which Is strongly Influenced by the new re public. "I am positive this new republic has come to stay," he said. "The new president is in sympathy with our work. He has shown his interest in many ways. He gave a reception in Pekin to the medical missionaries who served during the famine and the plague and administered to both sides in the recent revolution. He ex pressed sympathy with the efforts of the l. M. C. A. at a convention In Pekin and his appeal for the prayers of all Christian countries, which he sent out April 27, is strong evidence of his feeling. There soon will be ab solute liberty granted to Christians throughout the empire. Miss Ethel Ramspotten of Gallatin, Mo., a niece of Mr. Lowe, is accom panying him on the trip through Missouri. FOE.
