Final Decision, However,
Will He Left to Board
of Curators.
Club Members Allege That
Cafeteria Is Favored
Over Them.
Democracy, Mulligan stew, tough
meat, adding machines, soap and
Stephens College were all discussed
in the examination of Stanley Sisson
Frida night for mismanagement of
the Unhers-ity Dining Cluh.
The final result of the meeting was
that the proposition of whether the
Cafeteria and the University Dining
Cluh he entirely separated and put
under different managements, or
whether the cluh organization he done
away with and both the cluh and the
Cafeteria ho put under University
management, is to he voted upon
Thursday and the result sent in a
petition to the Hoard of Curators for
the hoaid to decide.
The examining body was composed
of representatives from the Cafeteria,
the cluh, persons from both sides who
had not expressed opinions and the
members of the dormitory board.
The petition from the club asked
for the dismissal of the present man
ager and tne entire separation oi
the Cafeteria and the University Din
ing Club. It is said that the present
manager could not show where the
money went, that tho bad food was
sent to the club and the best part to
the Cafeteria, that the necks and
wings of chickens were sent to the
Club and the legs and best parts to
the Cafeteria, that mops, brooms and
soap used by both were paid for by
the club, and that the best cuts of
the meat were sent to Stephens Col
lege, which docs its buying through
the club.
(aleteria cnds Counter-Petition.
A counter-petition from the Cafe
teria branded as false the statement
that the Cafeteria was getting the
best part of the food. It declared
that the club petition was the result
of a few dissatisfied and jealous mem
bers of the club.
Here is some of the evidence In
the examination of Mr. Sisson:
Member of the U. D. Club council
Our men don't have any way of check
ing up the money spent from the ser
vice fund, the $25 that is paid in by
each cluh member at the beginning
of tho year.
Member of dormitory board The
University sends a statement once a
Councilman Well, we arc told we
don't have anything to do with that,
so that cooks us.
Member of board All you have to
do is s-end one of your councllmen
to check over the statement.
Member of council It is evident
from the records that all of the
money paid in to the board fund of
the cluh, Sl.75 a week, is not spent
for board. We don't get $1.75 worth
of food.
Sisson If part of the expenses
were not paid from the board fund,
the service fund would have to be
made more and this would keep men
awa from tho club.
"Hon About the 'Mulliganr"
Councilman How about this bad
smelling meat. We get the bad part
of the meat at the club.
Sisson Tho Cafeteria gets the same
kind of meat, cut from the same piece.
It is eaten without any remarks by
those at the Cafeteria.
Councilman Well, why didn't the
manager cut out Mulligan stew? No
body eats it.
Member of club I'm surprised at
the kick on Mulligan stew. The
board at tho club has been better
this year than ever before.
Councilman All of the tough meat
is sent to the club.
Sisson No, it Is divided. The Cafe
teria gets tough meat for hamburger.
Cafeteria representative I don't
know anything about the tough meat,
but I have eaten chicken neck at the

Xt'W I'liishrr Is Expected to Make It
Cleaner Down Town.
Due to the untiring persistence of
tho sttect committee of the Woman's
Civic League, Columbia has a $1,000
street flushcr that will keep the busi
ness district of the city in good con
dition this summer. Mrs. W. T.
Stephenson, as chairman of the street
committee, solicited and collected all
the subscriptions to pay for the flusher
and it has already been at work sev
eral days.
Mrs. Stephenson said yesterday morn
ing that not much work could be done
with the flusher until the streets had
been cleaned. They are in such a con
dition now that it is feared flushing
would stop the sewers. But the com
mittee on the cleaning of streets is
working on plans and it is hoped that
Columbia's streets will soon be in good
"Since the merchants are the ones
who gave the money," said Mrs. Steph
enson, "it is only the business district
in which the flusher will be used."

II. J. Lamade Plans Long Trip After
A 1,100-mile trip on a motorcycle Is
planned by Howard J. Lamade, a sen
ior in the School of Journalism of
the University. Mr. Lamade lives in
Williamsport, Pa. Instead of going
home by railroad, he expects to make
tho trip on motorcycle.
Mr. Lamade estimates the distance
from Columbia to Williamsport at
1,100 miles. He will give himself nine
days in which to make the trip. The
first day he expects to go from Co
lumbia to Hannibal, the second from
Hannibal to Ottowa, III.,; the third
day through Chicago to South Bend,
Ind.; from South Bend through Elk

Caslle to Pittsburg tho seventh day;
from Pittsburg to Johnston tho eighth
day; iroin Johnston to Williamsport
the ninth day.
Some days Mr. Lamade expects to
travjl much farther than others, ow
ing to the road conditions. The roads

mencement His only baggage will
be a small hand bag.
In the examination Mr. Sisson ex
plained that the meat was kept in the
University cold storage, and that
Stephens College paid for this privi
lege and that it was charged a half
cent a pound more than the meat cost
to make up for any loss to the club.

Orange and lemon vegetables, can
taloupes that grow on bushes, dills
for dill pickles, a German turnip that
grows above the ground and sweet
lavender to make satchet bags are
among the many vegetables that Carl
Gundlcfinger of 714 Missouri avenue,
a 15-year-old sophomore at the Co
lumbia High School, has in his garden.
Every inch of the garden; 97 feet
by 25 feet, is utilized and kept in
good order by the young gardener,
who planted it himself.
He became interested in raising a
garden after reading about It. B. Price,
Sr., president of the Boone County
National Bank, who spends his spare
time in working a garden. Carl
spends on an average six hours a day
on his. He works as early as 6 o'clock
In the morning and then in the after
noon from the time he returns from
school until darkness comes.
Among the interesting vegetables he
planted is kohlrabie, a cross between
a cabbage and a turnip, which grows
above the ground. It is a German
vegetable, according to Mrs. Bertha
Gundlcfinger, Carl's mother, that is
not often raised by the Americans as
they haven't learned its use very well
yet. Tho orange and lemon vegeta
bles have a color similar to those
fruits when they ripen. They are
used for preserving and pickling.
"We are trying them for the first
time," Mrs. Gundlcfinger said. "I ate
some of them years ago in New Jer
sey. They were growing like gourds
and were good to eat off the vines."
The blossom of the sweet lavender
will be used for filling sachet bags
and the leaves for flavoring. Carl has
also planted some anis, the seeds of
which will be used for flavoring like
sage. The dills they are growing will
be for dill pickle.
The new cantaloupe is a novelty.
according to Mrs. Gundlefinger, as the
melons grow on bushes instead of
vines. There are three kinds of
Southern vegetables in the garden
that will stand frost and are improved
by it. They are winter greens the
cardoon, the collard and the brussel,
sprout, which Is a cross between the
cabbage and the cauliflower. Besides
these there is a summer succession of
greens spinach, summer radishes and
Along a woven wire fence on the
north of the garden are planted some
telephone peas. They grow five feet
high and cross and recross their
"wires." They yield all summer if
they are continually picked. To save
space the young gardener planted four
varieties of radishes in the sams rows.
The earlier varieties make room for
the next, as they are pulled as they
get big enough to eat Around the
edge of the garden cabbage and to
matoes are set out.
The other vegetables in this well
kept garden arc potatoes, sixty-day
cabbage, turnips, rhubarb, onions, let
tuce, radishes, mustard, bunch and
pole beans, spinach, bunch peas and

A Summary of Fo'otball.
The loss of the games with Kansas
and with Ames were the hardest de
feats of the season. The 29-0 score
with Ames looked the worst of any
of the results. The Tigers won a ma
jority of the games, but lost the big
gest one the Kansas game.
The first game of the season was
with Central College. This game was
easily taken with a score of 53-7.
The Rolla Miners were next and the
Tigers won again 14-0. The bright
est spot in tho season was when the
Varsity team went to Oklahoma with
all the 'odds against it and won the
game by a score of 14-0.
That Xebraska Game.
While the Tigers were defeated by
Nebraska, the defeat was counted al
most a victory, for the Cornhuskers
scored only one touchdown and it
largely by good luck. Had Missouri
played the football all through the
season that they did against Ne
braska, Kansas would not have had
a chance for victory and Ames would
probably have been defeated.
November 9 the Tigers met the
Drake team at Des Moines. The
score, 17-14 in favor of Missouri, is no
indication of the comparative strength
of the two teams for in all stages of
the game except the last quarter, the
Missouri boys clearly had the Bull
dogs outclassed. Missouri easily won
from Washington the next Saturday
Tho Kansas game was the great
disappointment of the year. The
Tigers did well in the first quarter.
Shepard made one of the prettiest
drop kicks ever seen in a Missouri
Valley game. This was tho only
score made in that period and the
Missouri rooters were confident of vic
tory. But" early In the second quar
ter, Weidline of Kansas made a place
kick from the-35-yard line tying the
score. Soon after that trouble for
Missouri began. The Tigers seemed
powerless against the Minnesota shift
used by the Jayhawkers, a play that
the Nebraska team had failed to work
against them consistently. The Kan
sas men used the play almost at will
Prof. C. L. Brewer Calls Spring Prac

IN 12
Woolsey's Single Defeats
Kansas in Over-Time
It took the Tigers twelve long in
nings to win from the Jayhawkers yes
terday. The score was 3 to 2. It was
one of those long exciting games full
of hitting, running and great catches.
Woolsey singled over second base in
the twelfth inning and scored Gray,
who had just walked and stole second.
Bishop, who made a great catch of
Urainard's long fly in the fourth in
ning, tried hard to get Woolsey's hit
but barely touched the ball as it hit
the ground. Two were out before Gray
got on base.
Missouri's two other runs came in
the first inning. Gray hit through sec
ond and stole on the first ball pitched.
Woolsey hit an Gray went home
while Woolsey took second. Tommy
Hall then hit to left field and Woolsey
went to third. Hall stole second and
Woolsey scored on a passed ball.
Ward, first man at bat for Kansas
in the second inning, walked. Bishop
hit to Rollins street, allowing Ward
to score. Bishop took second on the
throw-in to catch Ward. Wilson trip
led to left field and Bishop scored.
In the first inning Hicks tried to
steal home as Angerer was delivering
the ball to the batter, but Hall ran up
and caught the ball for an easy out as
Hicks slid home.
In the eighth inning Gray made one
of the best catches of the season when
he ran far in and took Bishop's fly
just before it touched the ground. In
the twelfth inning Gray ran back and
got another long fly from Bishop's bat
that looked like a home run. Capp ran
up on the right field hill and caught
Wilson's long fly.
"Dutch" Angerer pitched the entire
game, making twenty-one innings for
him in two days. He struck out nine
teen men in tho twelve innings, strik
ing out seven straight in the fourth,
fifth and sixth innings. Buzick struck
out fivo men.
