The last few hours before Clean up Day are here. They mean as much toward a successful campaign against dirt as Clean-Up Day itself. You cannot do your best in the work if you wait until Tuesday to get your tools together. These last few hours are the ones, foreordained you might say. in which to make ready the rake, wheelbarrow and trash can. Get them together now and you will have one more incentive toward starting active work early in the morning. COLUMBIA SKETCHES Her cheeks were soft brown pulled over dull pink, and the sun made red lights in her brown hair. She was holding tight to her mother's finger and tripping along the path to the Dairy Building. "Look, mother," she exclaimed, What's that big tent for?" "The farmers put it up for their fair," her mother told her. "Oh." she said. "I suppose it's for the shu-talka. They must call It 'talka,' because they talk so much, but what do they put the 'shu' on it for?" The Literary Trawler TO THE HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS. Today's issue of the University Mis sourian is the first of the week's se ries that will make up the annual high school edition of this newspaper. To you, seniors in the high schools of Missouri, its message primarily is to be addressed. The Mlssourian will come to jou for a week, placing before you daily an assortment of advertise ments and special articles that are in tended to aid jou in choosing your alma mater and jour course of study for next year Of course, jou will be going to school net jear. Surely jou do not regard your graduation from high school as the completion of your study. Surelj' you do not think that your sec ondary school diploma will mean that you are fitted for whatever may come in life. Surelj- you do not mean to' plunge at once into jour chosen work, selecting a place that jou may never rise from and handicapping yourself by an incomplete preparation for the mission that awaits jou. Of course, jou are going on! That job which offers itself now may seem1 to hold all that jou care for; but you must hae a realization that jour point of iev will change as jou grow- in j-ears. You cannot remain satisfied with that which satisfies j-ou now; sooner or later will come dissatisfac tion and when it comes, woe to him who has not the training or the quick ness or the breadth of few to advance! He must remain, a square peg in a round hole, for the lack of the higher education. Education is too -valuable to neg lect. Scorn not the opportunity that confronts jou. There have been few Lincolns, remember, and the number is dwindling, dwindling eveiy daj It is not j-ourself only j-ou will serve by the formation of hopeful views and habits; jou will be a per petual cordial and tonic to all those with whom j-our lot is cast.

Most every college base ball team, though able to play the game fairly well, Is slow in base run ning, in hitting, sometimes in fielding. The fine points of the game are un derstood almost as well as in the case of the professional players, but the college men do not make use of their knowledge. The average college rooter is at times' openly disgusted with such baseball playing. He does not, how ever, understand that this is simply an! argument of the strength of the game of baseball. It requires prac tice and lots of it, study of the game an Quickness of wits, to ply the grdat. game as its best The profes sionals who make a business of play ing the game must play it cleverly, and even they fall down quite often. The college man with little practice, a short season, his studies and a world of other things to do, can hard ly -"be expected to play with the clev erness of a professional. It' is only after he has been graduated from his college nine and has studied and practiced his game to a degree of per fection in minor company that he is able to make the "big league," in most cases. Some ball players probably are born wlth a faculty for the game and show upi on the corner lot at fourteen years of age, or in the freshman nine at -college. But in the majority of cases, time with practice makes the clever baseball player. So be pa tient with your college nine when er rors and bobbles are happening and when hits are few.
