If you are interested in German,
and chance to ask some member of
Der Deutsche Klub for information
concerning that organization, you
probably will receive a reply some
thing like this: "Oh you'd better come
and join. We get the most benefit
from it and have just heaps of fun.
I wouldn't miss a meeting for any
thing." That is the purpose of the club
to increase the conversational ability
of the members and acquaint them
with German culture, with interest
ing social features as a side issue.
The meetings are held twice a month
in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A.
Der Deutsche Klub is one of the
older organizations of the University.
This is its twelfth year. The mem
bership has reached seventy-five this
semester, the most in its history.
Goethe and Schiller Programs.
The programs include literary,
musical, and dramatic evenings. A
Goethe program and a Schiller pro
gram are given annually. Recently
Nebbel amd Hauptmann programs
were given. Others are planned in
commemoration of the anniversaries
of great writers. The literary pro
grams consist of recitations from
lyric poetry, presentations of dra
matic scenes, biographies, apprecia
tions and criticism of the authors'
works, presented by the members of
Musical programs are given once
or twice a year. For these the best
taleat of the city, the University and
the colleges is secured. Sometimes
an evening is devoted to a particular
Public dramatic performances are
an important feature of the club's
work. These give concrete examples
of the German drama in different
stages of its development. Last year
the club produced "Peter Squenz." by
Andreas Gryphins. a drama of fie
seventeenth century, showing the
early influence of Shakespeare on the
German drama. This year "Faust,
Ein Puppenspiel," was" given, estab
lishing a line of connection between
Marlowe's Faust and Goethe's Faust,
at nresent a German nativity play
whose origin dates back to the middle
German 'Comedies, Too.
Most frequently public performanc
es are of modern German comedies,
as "Der Bibbothekar," produced in
the spring of 1913. Such plays ac
quaint the performers with German
social customs, and increase the con
versational ability in the German lan
guage. Plays of this type are usually
chosen also for private performances
before the club.
A part of every meeting is devoted
to social conversation in the German
language. This is stimulated by
games played in German, of which
the club has a large selection.
The club is self supporting. The
small surplus from membership dues
not needed for running expenses has
been applied to the subscription for
"Die Woche," an illustrated German
weekly, which the club places in the
library for the use of the public.
The officers cf the club are: Presi
dent, V. W. Hi.wkins; vice-president,
Lucy Moore; secretary, Dorothy
Jones; and treasurer, E. H. Beumer.
SATURDAY IX A COUXTT SEAT
Boone County Farmers 3Iake It a
Busy Day Here.
"What are you giving for hogs,
"Six and a half, the same I gave
last week and the market is 20 cents
"Well, I've got five."
"How big are they?"
"All right, bring them around."
It is Saturday farmers' day in Co
lumbia. AH morning they are arriv
ing in their rigs, bringing the whole
family along. They come to sell their
hogs to Uncle Bill or any one else
that wants them; to buy groceries;
to deposit or draw out money at the
banks; to let their wives shop, and
most important of all, so it seems, to
visit with their neighbors.
They throng the sidewalks, talking
about the stock, President Wilson,
and other matters. They are here by
hundreds. In one of the yards at
tached to livery stables there are
twenty teams hitched for the day. In
another forty teams have been put
up. As many more are on the street.
On Saturday the bank forces are
busier than on other days. The farm
hands come to town with their pay
checks and their employers deposit
what they receive for the stock and
produce they bring to town.
The drygoods stores are filled all
morning. The wives of the farmers
are buying. While they are so en
gaged the children stand politely
where they have been placed. Later
on their amusements will come.
Candy and the picture show will be
their reward for patience.
Most of the farmers stay until the
late afternoon. After luncheon,
eaten in the restaurants, the streets
are deserted for the moving pictures.
After that the visitors gather up their
purchases, hitch their teams and soon
the roads are dotted with vehicles.
That is the spirit off
Christmas. Make your Christ
mas giving a pleasure by select
ing your gifts from our quality.
