"Yes, I can remember when we used
to grit our corn meal, seventy or eigh
ty j oars ago." .said Colonel "Uoh"
Smith, 20(. llroadu.n, Columbia's old
est man. "What do I mean b 'gi it
ting"? Well, we would take a piece
of tin and make hole-, in it with a
nail. Then on this rough surface
we'd rub the ear of porn. Meal gi ootid
in this w-nj made delicious luusli and
good porn bread, too.
"Of course, that wasn't our onlj waj
of making iorn meal. We had the old
horse-power mills. Winn I was a
boy we earned our corn in sacks to
the null It took half an hour to giind
two bushels. The corn was ground
between Mono buhrs. The meal was
coarse, but had a rich, nutty flavor.
Xow they grind it between steel i oil
ers and use team power. . A miller
can make twenty-bo or thirtj times
as much meal in an hour. It's much
liner, but to mj notion the bread isn't
as good It's what I call clamim or
I. O. Kohiiisim so lleuiembers.
T. O. ltobinson, 1213 Kast I!roadwa,
belongs to a jounger generation, but
lie also lecalls the timo whin he us-ed
to earn two sacks of corn to the mill
"That was two dajh' work," .said Mr.
liohuison. "Sometimes we had to staj
all day to wait our turn.
"Some of these old-time nulls were
run li boisepower and some bj
water power. The water power mill

north of Perche Creek. A mill neai
there was run b horse power. The
corn was ground between null stones,
the top stone whirling and the lower

The cotai meal wasn't separated as
it is today. It was more nutritious.
The Mod rollers that the now use
mash it,and the heat seems to "kill" the

'I can tell jou how they used to
make corn imal," said Mrs A. W.
Daniel. 115 South Fifth stre. t. "Thirt
ears ago, when i lived in Kentucky,
mother used to put n tin can on the
coals and melt out the solder. Then
she would flatten this out and punch
holes in it with a nail. Cuning the
flattened tin over a board, we would
grind an ear of corn on this roughen
ed surface. It served just about like a
grater that ou use to grate cheese or
cocoanut. You could grate enough
for a meal in half an hour. It had a
rich flavor and made either g'ood corn
bread or mush."
While the modem process is gener-
allv ucd in the manufacture of corn
meal todav. there are a few mills in
this vicinity where corn meal is
ground on the old-fashioned stone
buhrs. The Doolv null, on Cedar
Creek, in Callaway County, twenty
miles southeast of Columbia, is run
by water power. The Columbia Chain
and Fedd Company, on South Tenth
street, still makes corn meal by the
old process, grinding it on stone buhrs.
While electricity furnishes the power
for running, the process is otherwise
the same. The meal is not refined.

BORN BASEBALL SLUGGER,
IS GUSTAV J. DIPPOLD
Fielders and even pitchers may be
made, but a batting ee and the co
ordinating muscles that go to make
up a hard hitter must bo God-given
And this is where Gustav J. Dippold,
the leading 1910 Tiger batter, has it
on the other plaers.
Preceded by no marvelous tales of
homo runs and batting averages, un
known to Mii-souri fans as well as to
the athletic department, this silent
oung German-Ameiican came to the
University a je.ir ago last September
to get an education, not a training in
baseball, lie registered from Perrj
villo, a tovvai of some 2,100 in South
east Missouri, and without prelimi
naries started to work to earn enough
to keep him in school.
As a matter of fact Dippold hart
pla.ved baseball both with the Perr.v
ville High School and other amateur
teams in the vicinity. Although he
made good both as a pitcher and at the
bat, his iccord did not stand out even
in this company And all the time he
had been earning enough mono to
keep him in high school, selling gin
seng root in the winter and working
in the harvest field in the summer.
When it came time for baseball last
j ear. Dippold .vield. d to the call of the
diamond, and one or two afternoons a
week all ho could spare from his
work found him practicing batting
and chasing flies with the freshman
squad. i:ven then none seemed to
recognize the latent ability of the
husk oung phi or, and when ho ap
lieared early this spring as a candi
date for the Varsity none took lus
With the coming of outdoor practice,
however, his natural ability with the
bat began to assert itself unmistaka
bly, and as the spring practice games
cevntinueid ho gradually found a place
with the regulars. In the line points
of the game, even in fielding, the as
piring pla.vcr was woefully lacking,
and the coaches spent much time
teaching him baseball essentials, so
that his mighty bat might be used to
help the Tigers to victory. As late as
the first game, however, he was still
sadly deliciont in these departments
of the game and Ilrevver was criticised
